Tony vs Khabib Part 5 for the first time I'd bet. If Dustin got the upset, I'm not sure it would be as big a fight.

Which is why I expect him to win. The final nail in the coffin from the MMA Gods on Tony vs Khabib.

ah shit

I wanna know who pussed out- Colby or Usman, because that fight was pretty much a lock for the main event and within days it fell to pieces.

Colby.  MMAFighting just posted an article where he basically says he was ready to go and then was offerred the same as any title challenger would receive and he wouldn't accept it.  UFC brass said they'd just move on.

The guy headlined one of the worst drawing shows (considering location of the show) that they’ve ever done. Hilarious that the guy thinks he’s big shit.

I find it odd then that they didn't offer Masvidal a title fight against Usman or why Kamaru didn't push to be defending his title there. The guy has been radio silent since beating Woodley and people are starting to question whether he has any interest in fighting, figured he'd use this chance to silence the critics.

He won't successfully defend the title.  He appears to be in another world since winning.

Kamaru is an Ali client and those guys always seem to get favorable match-ups, undeserved title shots and big paydays. I think he's going to be fine from a business standpoint but the way he dominated Woodley is going to be forgotten by the time his first defense comes around.

Jacare moves up to 205, faces Jan Blachowicz in the main event of the Sau Paulo card on Nov 17th. Weird fight considering it was all but assumed that Jan was going to get the next crack at Jones for the LHW belt. I think this means either Jones isn't fighting again this year or he's moving up to HW. Jones said he had a fight announcement coming soon so I think he's up to HW against somebody like Francis or a title fight with Stipe.

Do you guys think Bones goes straight to a title shot if he moves up to HW? I think based on how there are serious tiers within the division plus the fact that even though Ngannou looks like a different guy, the losses to Stipe & Derrick Lewis makes it so a big prize fight can bump JBJ over Ngannou for a rematch.

I think the only people who beat Jones at HW are DC, Francis and Stipe. Cormier isn't fighting again this year or maybe never again and IIRC Stipe said he was taking the rest of the year off. Ngannou is a huge fight for Jones but a risky one too, it also might be the only option for him. The rest of the upper-tier of heavyweight guys (Lewis, Volkov, JDS) are all booked up for the rest of the year.
