WSOF has likely lost Dave Branch, Justin Gaethje and Marlon Moraes to the UFC.

Nah man that'd be a Diaz/Conor level of size advantage for Punk. Totally unfair.

SEC filing for WSOF's new investment group. 31 backers reportedly raised $25-million for 60% of the struggling org.

Definite bailout. $20mil to Deifik and $5mil buys out other investors.

I want non-UFC MMA to succeed as much as anyone, but that seems like money flushed down the toilet.

Being that UFC has stated they can't match the offer expect to see an announcement about Bader signing with Bellator popping up soon.

From Meltz, taken from Reddit:

Quote
Paraphrasing what Big Dave said on Wrestling Observer Radio today (http://f4wonline.com).

He said that for various reasons, company loyalty among UFC fighters is very low right now. Of course there are certain guys who remain loyalists, but for the most part UFC has a lot less good will with its fighters than it used to. Consequently, fighters are less likely to "do favors" for the UFC, such as fighting with nagging injuries, or taking short notice fights to "save" cards.

Dave says that this is why UFC has struggled to put together cards in 2017 so far. He noted the Penn/Yair card was much weaker than the usual UFC card in the NFL Playoff spot that time of year. Additionally, the same can be said of the Super Bowl weekend card with Korean Zombie. The UFC Brooklyn card being headlined by a made-up belt with an empty division is another symptom.

It's an interesting trend. I wonder if it will persist, and if so if it will force UFC to play ball with the fighters. It's almost like they're accidentally taking concerted action without actually being organized.

UFC has removed a large and fairly notable list of fighters from it's listings:

Rick Story, Lorenz Larkin, Takeya Mizugaki, Sean O'Connell and Cole Miller are among the list. Hopefully this means Larkin to Bellator.

For once, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather appear to be on the same page.

While nothing has been signed, The Irish Sun is reporting that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight title holder and the future boxing Hall of Famer have agreed on financial terms to make a boxing match happen. The report notes a third party is serving as a roadblock from the bout being signed.

The UFC has notified all coaches/camps that they'll no longer be providing file footage for them to study for upcoming fights, instead it's up to them to sign up for Fight Pass on their own dime.

At least with season 4 the guys in the house were mostly there before the UFC really took off in popularity. So they were new for a lot of folks. This just feels like the scrub bunch. Joe Stevenson is maybe the least evolved fighter I've ever seen.

Add Kyogi Horiguchi to the list of top ten ranked fighters whose UFC contract hasn't been renewed. He's officially a free agent.

Cruz is getting deep on all sorts of subjects. Depression, his injuries...the realness in this is p. incredible. He's also still hurt and has to do stem cell treatments on his feet.

I know that there's always the saying that no fighter ever goes into a fight at 100% but I feel like this rings true for Cruz about all else. With the surgeries and layoff length that dude has been through it's only get worse the further into his career he goes.

Cat Zingano launched some social media thing where she gets a little revenue when people click on the ads/articles/etc etc

She posted and explanation on instagram about it and I have to say it was kid of depressing listening to her and realize she feels bad about even having to do this sort of thing but she is probably getting paid so little and what not that she is resorting to some side income to help take care of her son.

He's around the same age as Lashley when he started his MMA career. I could see him using his wrestling to grind out cans on Bellator shows.

The "UFC let Vitor fight Jones while roided to the gills because the UFC hated Jones" is the most likely of the theories to be true.

As is the Vitor/Rumble theory.
