I'm not sure what the prop bet line is for Romero getting popped post-show but holy lord that man has the physique of a Ninja Turtle.

Luke Thomas is basically trolling any commentary that would suggest Yoel is on PEDs.  He has a serious boner for Yoel and will not entertain any notion that the 40 year old should be linked to them.

Romero was definitely on them hard at some point. Also, even though it got blamed on a tainted supplement, he tested positive for growth hormone.

Luke is also huge into lifting and gym culture in general so he's probably really high on the idea that a guy who's 40 can look like that naturally.

Exactly. He's also a proponent for pre USADA UFC and isn't necessarily against PED use. But to respond to speculation the way he has is really odd to me.

Ariel just tweeted that Nunes is in the hospital right now and has been sick most of the week. Hasn't said if the fight is on or off yet. No confirmation from Nunes camp or the UFC yet.

Incredible that this is the year we're given after somebody buys this shit for $4 billion. Last night was the first time all year I really got hyped after a show was over.

My overall feeling is that the UFC's promotional decisions and attempt to sanitize their product to make it attractive to sponsors is slowly killing the sport. Been nothing but bad PR since the Reebok deal was announced, and showmanship has disappeared massively as a result of that. They don't even let fighters wear costumes to the weigh-ins anymore.

As for this specific event, cutting weight like crazy makes you sick. Who knew?

They won't clear her on this short of notice.

Damn shame. This card could have use another good fight. Especially after losing Cowboy and Robbie.

That was great. Just let some old guy get up from his back to immediately take him down and finish him.

Browne's only win in his last 6 fights was the one where he went knuckle deep in Mitrione's eyeball twice.

Some good fights tonight, but I can see why there are few comments. Very technical.

Whittaker did a good job fighting on one leg after getting blasted in the knee in Round 1.   Yoel Romero looked like he was fighting out on his feet for the final 3 rounds.

Dana said he is never putting Nunes in a main event again after she pulled out at the last second.  Feels kind of harsh for Dana to throw his fighters, let alone a champion under the bus. I understand his frustration though.

Also as far as Nunes goes.  If her not feeling "right" had to do with a weight cut issue, then who's to say she doesn't do it again?  Maybe it was more in her head then anything else.

He said the same thing about Jones.

More attention should probably be paid to the fact that the UFC is utilizing TMZ as a backdoor channel to try and pressure fighters to perform when they're unfit to.

At least we are one step closer to this:

Nunes/Pennington when Shevchenko drops out.

in Edmonton.

Nunes was one of the few women outside of Joanna and Cyborg that they could market to the casual fan and instead they just completely shit all over her publicly and turned their casual fanbase against her.

I genuinely believe the UFC is going to run themselves into bankruptcy. I don't see anyone involved with the UFC promoting fights anymore, all I see is them shitting on fighters.

Their job is to lie to people and big these fighters up, not tear them down. Almost every UFC is headlined by somebody they shit on, it's a ridiculously toxic atmosphere they have going on over there.

Holly was being marketed as such until she shit the bed in her next couple of fights after the Rousey one.  I believe there is still some level of marketability in her because her personality is so likeable but that remains to be seen if she can build on that Correia KO.

The one that happened at 4m on a Fight Pass card?

I agree that personality-wise Holly can be marketable but she's an iffy fighter to back because her style can lead to horrendously boring fights if she fights the wrong/right opponent.

Early estimates of the 7/9 UFC 213 PPV were hugely disappointing, coming in right now at about 130,000 buys. That would be the lowest of the year, and the lowest since 2006 for a show that wasn’t headlined by Demetrious Johnson. Worse, it was for the International Fight Week show that is usually one of the best of the year. The advertising was built around Amanda Nunes vs. Valentina Shevchenko. We don’t know how much of the low number is people deciding not to buy when the main event fell through that afternoon, or if it would have done a similar number anyway. That number would indicate to me losing the main event hurt more than I expected.

When you spend more time shitting on your champions than promoting great matchups, they don't sell. Who knew?
