GIVE CUB HIS FUCKIN TITLE SHOT

Agreed but I think the UFC gives Aldo his rematch for two reasons

1) They've already invested in Cub/Ortega for the Fresno main event because it's a battle of Cali boys
2) The Ortega fight is the last one on Cub's contract and he's said he plans to pursue free agency if UFC tries to lowball him on a new offer. If he were to fight Holloway and win his bargaining power would be insane.

I bought tickets to this show. I’m much happier with Aldo in that slot than Cub.

Kelvin is going to fuck him up. Bisping likely still hasn't recovered from being elbowed into oblivion and then sent to the Upside Down by GSP.

I guess Bisping wants to end his career being decimated by two guys fighting above their proper weight class.

Oscar.... May/Mac was disrespectful to boxing.  What would this then be?

Nate Diaz might be getting his leg kicked off by Tyron Woodley at UFC 219.

Great fight but I'm being cautious as to whether or not it'll be exciting. Cyborg only fights hyper-aggressive in bursts and against opponents she doesn't have to worry about being countered by. Holm is going to sit back and try to time a good shot but whether Cris will give her the opening to do so is the big question.

Looks like a rematch between Jacare and Brunson is next for both guys but the venue is being disputed. Jacare is saying the fight is in Brazil, Brunson is saying North Carolina.

Brunson is from North Carolina.  I see him around at a lot of local events where he does some cornering for MMA and occasionally kickboxing.  Marcus Davis also has a gym right down the street from mine where a couple good friends of mine train.  Davis has gotten huge since he stopped fighting.  He's a HW now, easy.  Looks like Chris Benoit

That's not a nice comparison given how badly Marcus has been KO'd.

The Helwani is saying that the UFC is negotiating with John Linekar to step in and fight Jimmie Rivera at UFC 219. BRRRRAP.
