Too bad it’ll be years before he sees any of it, and he’ll end up getting nowhere near that amount after lawyers and appeals.
Matt, don't be a fag. Post some huge cocks.

Also part of the reason why the payout is so large is because the trial took place in NJ and they have some state law that triples settlements. Won't be the norm for future cases.

Fitting, since he's fought his last two fights like he was already retired.

Also let's file Jimi Manuwa under "Dudes who should retire" that knockout was fucking scary. Props to Rakic too though, that combo was beautiful.

Also lost in the news of Gus hanging them up King Mo retired. Was pretty spotty late in his career but for a guy who started in MMA late he did well for himself and retires with some good to very-good wins under his belt.

Revised my fight posts for the website.  Biggest upcoming fights in MMA, kickboxing, and boxing.  Ongoing UFC fight of the year ranking.

Good FOTY list, liked that you gave a shout-out to Claudio Silva vs Danny Roberts, that fight was madness and was legit better then Masvidal/Till. I would've honestly ranked Ladd/Eubanks higher if only because it's rare that you see two women fight who have that level of sustained aggression throughout 15 minutes.

Also don't wanna be right about this but pretty sure that Ortega/Zabit isn't happening at UFC 240 anymore. T-City isn't going to be ready in time.

I saw that right after I posted the article.  I need to go back and change a few other things, too.  I shuffle the rankings throughout the year and then frantically try to rewatch everything at the end to finalize the rankings.  I overlooked some stuff and overrated some stuff in my never finished rankings from last year so I've made some notes to more accurately rank fights instead of just sticking them on the list when I finish the card.  238 will be tough because (a) I was drinking and in a bar environment which sometimes makes me overrate fights and (b) I miss portions of some fights that may not make me rank them fairly, although I saw basically the entirety of the better fights.
