I don't think Bisping was on anything. Never showed a performance level that could make me think so.

Gian will have his LI crew, hopefully Bosse brings the Bosse Posse from the QC for this war.

Well if he's gonna fight in August for example, it's probably best to start training for Maia right now.

Maia must be planning on tapping Gamebred quick if he's going to have that quick of a turnaround for a title shot.

Cyborg says she's fighting de Randamie for the hardly existent 145 pound belt at UFC 214.

On the same show DC is supposed to defend against Manuwa or Jones.

And it's in Anaheim and I can't go!

Dana hates Woodley so if they can get DC/Jones or DC/Manuwa booked for that show alongside Cyborg/GDR then I think Woodley's fight gets bumped to another show.

I could see a "special edition" Fight Pass card headlined by Woodley's next defense right around that same card.

He had to have just felt that way because he's a big fan of both guys and was caught up in the chess match upon first viewing.  No WAY he rewatched it right?

tbf, Joe does that for a lot of fights that fans boo. I Think he did that for Silva/Leites too, another awful fight. I think he just looks up to fighters too much to criticize them for inactivity, so he paints it as being 'technical' and 'tactical'.

Anik keeps it real though. I remember when fans gave him shit on twitter because he was trying to sell Danielle Taylor vs Maryna Moroz back in the summer and it was a stinker, he apologized the next day and said he shouldn't have been trying to pull one over on the fans. Rogan would never do that.

If DC makes it to the fight without getting injured, it's probably going to be the best preparation he's ever had. Won't have time to get fat between fights.

I don't see anything in DC's game since the first fight that doesn't shake my belief that Jones is the absolute worst style matchup. He has the range and striking to land, the takedown defense to stuff whatever Cormier rushes him with and the clinch game to dish it back. Unless Jones has completely fallen off a cliff in the last 14 months I think he wins again and DC moves up to HW.

If DC's cardio holds up, I think he could out point for 3 rounds. I'm also assuming Jones is a more timid version of hi former self and fights similarly to the OSP fight. In all honesty, if Jones is strong mentally DC can't win. But he is skilled enough to capitalize on a lazy Jones.

DC has never won a fight by out-pointing anybody standing. If he can't take Jones down (and I don't think he can) he 100% loses the fight.

Well then perhaps out-pointing was a poor choice of words.  I think DC can win 3 rounds if he can establish himself as the aggressor.  My main point is obviously I don't think he can finish Jones, but he just had zero in the tank for the championship rounds in their first fight.  Acknowledging that, I also have to acknowledge what both guys have looked like since then.  Better cardio for DC and a rusty Jon again leads me to believe DC can win 3 boring clinch heavy rounds.

If DC tries to establish himself as the aggressor I think he runs into a quick beating. Even after the layoff I don't see Jones losing this fight

Gian Villante vs Steve Bosse at the UFC on Fox card in Long Island in July.

TWO HOSSES BANGING OUT BAH GAWD.

So this is now Villante vs Patrick Cummins.

Steve Bosse is fighting Jarod Cannonier at the TUF Finale.

It sounds like Kelvin's reefer madness issues are going to clear up sooner then thought, they might re-book the Anderson fight for UFC 213 in July. If Anderson is set on fighting on the 212 card they're looking at...........OSP at a 195 lbs catchweight.

It literally feels like they thought "who is another big black guy we can throw in with Anderson?" The UFC loves selling the nationalism/racism angles when it comes to booking/promoting Anderson fights. Sonnen's shit, Brunson, they picked him over Mousasi which would have been a way more competitive fight for UFC 200, Vitor's Inter-Brazilian feud sold a lot of PPV's down there, and then of course 'he should go back to Japan where the competition is a little easier'



I love Leben and thought he could win that fight but seeing Anderson come in and destroy in his debut is still one of the most satisfying things I've ever seen as a fan, and I remember my reaction/feeling to this day. But damn these guys love pushing those angles.

Edmonton will soon become the 10th Canadian city to host a UFC event.

Officials today announced UFC 216 is slated for Sept. 9 at Rogers Place. The event airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Guess Calgary will have to build a new arena before Dana "makes it up to us" for 149.

Anderson is threatening to retire if they won't make an interim belt for him to fight Yoel Romero. He doesn't want to fight Yoel otherwise. You know, good if they don't make that interim belt. I'm done with that shit.
