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.


I can't believe a guy can be that big, and jump around like he does what a great athlete!

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

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.

I don't think Hardy wins, but I am glad that he stepped in for this fight. He needed to start fighting some Top 15 guys. If he loses to Volkov, I don't think it hurts him with how protected he's been .

Nate Diaz claimed he isn't fighting Masvidal due to a drug testing issue where he went after UFC, USADA and basically everyone else.

Paulo Costa is out for 8 months with a bicep tear per Dana and they're working on somebody else for Izzy. Yoel tweeted "see you soon boi" at Stylebender but my money would be on Cannonier.

Tony vs Khabib Attempt #5 going down in Brooklyn in April. Same month as their last fight was booked for in the same arena where McGregormania ran wild. UFC is crawling along the edge of a razor with this one.

If Weidman is going to fight again (and I don't think that he should) then he needs a guy outside the top 15 or somebody debuting in the UFC. That's how little of a shot I give him these days.

Yeah giving him anyone in the 205 division with any bit of power should be a criminal offense. His comments to Ariel were a bit cringe worthy that if you see it coming it's not that bad....

Dom Reyes hit him with a straight punch which is literally *the* punch that you see coming and he still got dropped. He's delusional and it's actually pretty sad. Even in the Kelvin fight when he got dropped he was hurt badly and if there were ten more seconds in that round he'd have been finished.

Frankie Edgar has postponed his planned drop to 135 to step in for Ortega against KZ.

The hilarious part is that he's still planning on dropping down to make his scheduled fight against Cory Sandhagen in January which is absolutely, 100% not going to happen.
