His WWE announcing was shit but that's with Vince screaming in his ear. His performances for Glory were a lot better.

I read that article today. I hope it doesn't happen. Romero has emerged as a #1 contender since Rockhold couldn't fight Jacare and Woodley certainly can rematch Wonderboy or face Maia.

Bisping-Woodley doesn't bother me if only because Tyron can barely make 170 and has barely been able to make the weight for a long time. He's well overdue to miss weight. Woodley-Romero is also a much better fight than Bisping-Romero. Woodley can make short work and get back quick.

The super fight thing is getting lame. Bisping hasn't even defended the belt. Same with Garbrandt calling out Aldo.

It's getting easier and easier to stop caring about the UFC.

He has defended the belt, but MW has a slew of Contenders just basically knocking each other off while he gets fun fights.

The root problem of all these super fights is that the champions aren't paid enough. They can't get points without hitting a particular number that can only be reached if they fight another champion.

So, fix that and the problem is gone.

Oh shit. I forgot the Hendo fight.

Him looking for a fight with Woodley is just avoiding losing his belt for another fight.

Woodley would kill him. One shot to that glass chin and he wouldn't get up.

That's a fight Shogun can win which is nice, but Villante is capable of throwing down. Someone's getting KO'd.

Re: The 2017 Upcoming and Rumored Fights Thread

Yeah it does feel like fighters are looking for money fights over anything else, can't really blame them.

RDA is moving to welterweight. Citing bad weight cuts as the reason.

Jacare is fighting Tim Boetsch at UFC 208. Guess they really needed another fight at 208.

If this was still 2016 I would pick Boetsch by KO.

Woodley stated on his podcast that he'll be fighting Wonderboy at 209.
 
Re: The 2017 Upcoming and Rumored Fights Thread

That's official now.

Also Tom Duquesnoy has signed with a UFC, a much-hyped for a while now. His only loss is to Makwan, and he fights at Bantamweight. He's going to fight for the title someday, and he might trade it with other top fighters.

So stoke about Fireball signing with the UFC. Easily one of the best unsigned talents in the Euro scene if not the entire game.

Logically, the winner of this would fight Conor, who is still out another nine months. This would give a 5 month layover for whoever wins this, which isn't too terribly long. This of course depends on Conor jumping right back in after he returns so we may be looking at close to a year before he defends his belt. Just make it for an interim belt since they seem all about that lately.

Assuming it's for an interim LW belt I figure the winner of that faces Nate sometime in the spring/summer, Conor returns in the fall.
