Till has gotta be one of the more undeserving title shots in a while. Beats a broken down Cerrone and then blows weight in the most important fight of his life and proceeds to "win" a stinker. That fight is probably gonna be mad ugly.

Missing weight just doesn’t matter when it comes to getting a title shot. Yolo missed weight for the intern title fight and still got a title fight right after... where he missed weight.

To play devils advocate Romero was wasting top contenders left and right, he also took the fight with Luke on 3 weeks notice. As for the Whittaker fight, no excuses but let's also not act like he blew weight by a significant amount. It was .2 lbs.

UFC are fucking idiots for not putting Diaz/Dustin on the undercard of Khabib/Conor and I hope Nate backs out over this because they deserve to be taught a lesson.

Also this puts to bed any shit talk about Conor ducking Khabib. The dude has been out of the game for 2 years and this is his first fight back, by far the toughest matchup in the division for him. Zero fucks given.

Joseph Benavidez vs Ray Borg at UFC 229 which is interesting because not only is it a dope fight but Conor has a court order saying that he needs to stay away from Borg (and Michael Chiesa) until 2020.

Edit: This fight is happening at the 25th Anniversery Card in Denver.

Yoel is out of the Paulo Costa fight at UFC 230, his orbital got fucked up in the Whittaker fight and he needs time off for it to heal. Sucks the fight is off but I thought it was too quick of a turnaround after that war. I hope they keep Costa on the card.

I really don't see what Nunes brings to the table that other challengers haven't. Maybe she gets lucky and Cyborg has a bad weight cut, but I don't see many legitimate paths to victory.

Holm had a moronic gameplan. I doubt Mike Brown is going to implement a strategy of Nunes sitting back and trying to win rounds solely off of counter shots.

The x-factor here is going to be cardio. I know that Cyborg went the full five with Holm but I don't think Holly was going to press her like Nunes can and will. Amanda's last two fights have been a decision and a fifth round tko and she looked very fresh late in both fights.

Dope fight and a smart one to make as far as having a backup in case Conor or Khabib can't fight. Pettis is going to get violated though.

I'm obviously one of the biggest T-Ferg marks so I feel like it means something when I say I'm not so sure about that. Styles make fights and in a lot of ways Anthony is better than Tony at what Tony is good at in various areas of the game. That's what makes this such an exciting fight, Ferguson will either cement his title shot with a bloody win or Pettis completes an insane career comeback and takes out one of the best P4P fighters in the game.

So, BJ is fighting again. Ryan Hall at 155 lbs and at UFC 232. I feel like this will just end like Fitch/Paul Harris and continue the sadness.

I met Ryan like 10 years ago and have been following him religiously...but BJ can win this fight (not saying he will, but giving him more of a chance than others are).

Poirier and Nate have both said on social media that they're fighting for the inaugural 165 lb belt in the main event at MSG, Dana is saying no. Tickets went on sale today and they still don't have a confirmed main event, I've seen posts that have said Gustafson vs Yoel for interim 205 and Jones vs Stipe for interim HW are being considered.

So a main event consisting of a phantom title match or two interim belts with challengers from outside the weight class?

Pretty much though Nate vs Diamond most certainly deserves a title fight and 25 minutes. Ideally I'd go with that as the co-main (for the belt) and Jones/Gus 2 for the main event. I don't understand the logic of an interim HW belt but I actually support an interim LHW belt because there's a genuine case to be made that DC will never drop back down again.
