Remember when Kevin Lee almost got finished by Trinaldo? Yeah, Barboza is gonna do mean stuff to him.

I want Bellator to utilize their RIZIN connects and get a fight between The Gooch and Darrion Caldwell but I'm easy like that.

It's HW so I'm not gonna bother with a prediction. Blaydes should smash 'Reem though, Alistair has never been outwrestled to a decision but if Blaydes can get him down (and I think he can) he'll pound him out.

Don't see why Stephens would bother with the fight or why the UFC would bother making it. If Aldo wins you've killed off a contender and it doesn't put Jose any closer to a title shot if he wins unless Max loses to Ortega.

I think they'll want to make that show a double title fight and get Shevchenko challenging for the 125 belt there too.

Gus and Rockhold are calling each other out, so I assume Rockhold is gonna get ethered and never fight again. That's pretty much the worst way for Rockhold to be welcomed to 205.

Also, as for Aldo/Stephens, that's a fight Aldo would have won 100% of the time three years ago. Now I don't know. Nobody's chin can hold up against Stephens, who is a fair bit bigger than him too. He's going to get inside and he's going to hit Aldo. On the other hand, Aldo has the experience to stay away from Stephens for at least two and a half rounds.

Didn't see this posted but Mairbek Taisumov is out of the Evan Dunham fight at 223, replacement is Olivier Aubin-Mercier. I'm really happy that Oli got a replacement fight so quickly after his last one fell apart because Gilbert Burns is a fatass and it's a step up too.

I think Cooper could be built up properly if given a slow burn over time but obviously they see Dern as the future and figure they can use this loss to cut ABC.

Of course, Dern's wrestling looked absolutely horrible in her debut so Cooper can pull off the upset if the fight stays upright.

I'm told that, right now, there's no truth to reports of Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo 2 going down at #UFC225. Of course things can always change, but that's the latest.

For some dumb reason, Frankie wants to get straight back in there with Cub and get knocked out again. It appears the UFC will oblige him.

Where ya seeing that? I've scanned my usual twitter sources and Reddit, nothing there.

Although it looks like Cub got his contract issues worked out because he's back in the rankings after being briefly removed. As much as I wanted him vs Pitbull in Bellator I'm glad he's staying.

Volkan is going to put Shogun down on May 19 at UFC Chile.  I HATE that matchup.  Shogun is on a little run, but it stops here unless DC took his soul.

Because they without question don't want Tyron Woodley to be champion the UFC is making Colby Covington vs Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight belt at UFC 224 in Brazil.

damn, step down for Ponzi. He said he wanted a title shot, but it sounds like he's not willing to beat the right guys to get it. Mike Perry ain't gonna get you that fight, and neither will Magny. He had over three months to get his fight and he picked this one? eh

This got kinda lost in the shuffle because of Tony getting hurt but Matt Brown is out of the Condit fight for next Saturday's card, from what I've read they're still hoping to keep Carlos on the card. So, to recap:

Sunday- Tony drops out

Monday- Brown drops out

Tuesday- GGG/Canelo II cancelled

Askren from what I understand still has contractual obligations to ONE that would need to get sorted out first but both guys seem to want the fight. Which is not a good look for Ben to be honest. The guy had his entire career of beating up C-level competition in Asia to pipe up and say something and now that he's "retired" he's running his mouth about wanting to fight the best.
