Yeah I'll be intrigued to see how they use Cerrone in the future. He will be an attraction fight until he really falls off a cliff, but do you really want to risk an up and comer against him if he beats them and stops the momentum knowing that he probably can't beat anyone in the Top 5 in either LW or WW division.

There are plenty of action fights for him at both weight classes, off the top of my head I'd love to see him against.....

155- Poirier, Conor, Hooker, Felder, Barboza rematch.

170- Luque, Jiangling, Elizu Capoiera, Millender, Geoff Neal.

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

LOL, what the fuck.  This guy would literally fight for free, were they thinking he quit?  Yair was the guy that went all Jon Jones.

After seeing the way he reacted to the eye poke and his post-fight interview I lost a lot of respect for Yair. He didn't do himself any favors or put to rest any of the talk that he ducks fighters and is a diva to work it. I really hope they book a rematch ASAP because not only does Stephens deserve it but because Yair would throw a hissy fit.

Cannonier has been one of the best upward trajectories to watch in the sport over the last few years. Went from getting no respect to being a title contender in less than a year. I said before that he was someone to watch and I'm happy to be proven right, he seems like a really cool guy.

With that being said, Adesanya/Costa/Whittaker/Romero (older now but still) is a whole other tier. Still, Jared has earned the right to find out whether or not he belongs in that elite.

I think either Costa or Yoel is a good next fight for Cannonier. And I agree with all that you said. He has had an unreal 2019 and it's awesome to see him have such a great year after dropping down a weight class.

The Branch fight was in 2018 so his 2019 has been Anderson breaking his leg off a kick and beating Hermannson but I agree that he's a guy to watch.

Also, it's 2019 and guys are still getting caught in the Von Preux by OSP. How is this still happening?

yeah, the Branch fight was at the end of 2018 but less than a year from today.

I don't know why but I have a really weird feeling that Stylebender is going to smash Whittaker and make it look shockingly easy. Honestly don't know what's going to happen though, that fight is sick but the buyrate is going to bomb HARD.

I also think Hooker has more then a good shot of completely tooling Raging Al. Bad style matchup.

I think Al and Chris will be loading up and heading to Bellator together after their next fights.

LHW desperately needs new blood for Jones and it's a super small list of challengers. If Weidman can somehow get past Reyes (and I do not think he does) then he's on the short list for a title shot. When Weidman was enjoying his post-Anderson run and Jones was pre-USADA that was a dream matchup for a lot of people.

Anyone ordering UFC 243 tonight? I really want to see Whittaker-Adesanya and have some interest in Hooker-Al, but I'm just not sure I want to pay $65 for basically one fight. May head to the bar at 11:30 and hope all the Buckeye fans have left already.

I'm probably gonna walk a block away to the spot that normally shows them, if only to catch the main event.  If I fall asleep before then I'll just catch it in the morning.

Izzy vs Costa needs to happen. First time ever that two undefeated MW's fight for the belt. Whittaker can fight either Hermannson, Cannonier or the winner of Till/Kelvin.

This comes at a pretty great time for the UFC. Between them both being undefeated, the fact they dislike each other and Izzy's ascension I think this can sell a decent amount of PPV's Super Bowl Saturday or early March.

It’s being reported that Joanna Champion has informed the UFC she won’t be able to make weight this weekend for her main event fight against The Karate Hottie. Michelle Waterson is also refusing to fight at catch weight, and refusing fights with Dern and Ribas, who are also on the card.  Angela Hill may end up replacing Waterson in the main event in a catchweight bout against Joanna.

I feel bad for Waterson. She should have every right to retain her place in the main event but Joanna is a bigger name and if Michelle drops out she's going to get re-booked against a lesser name. Dana will also likely shit talk Waterson as not wanting to fight.

Joanna weighed in at 115.5. Main event is on. Either this was something that got overblown or she killed herself to make the weight.

Seeing rumors that this might have been put out by the UFC to try and get some interest in the card tonight. Don't know how much that helped since I was planning on watching for my girl JOANNA (and Mackenzie Butt) anyway.

It was probably something that leaked out (her having a tough cut) and it got distorted like a game of "telephone" into Joanna's probably not gonna make it.

Nico Price vs. James Vick was the best and worst fight I've seen in a long time. Two guys who look like a strong gut of wind can knock out ends with a vicious upkick KO.

Kron Gracie is a gangsta. I really thought he'd try to take Cub down more but this has been hell of a slugfest.

The same “Irish sports star” that was accused of rape in December, has been accused of another sexual assault from Friday...

"Gangsta" = punching bag with no head movement.

He also said afterwards that he thought he for sure won the fight which is very on-brand for a guy that trains with the Diaz Brothers.

The Gifford/Davis fight was a borderline homicide. They ended up pulling the ref from a fight later in the evening for not stopping it and I'd say that the state athletic commission should go one step further and review whether or not the people who were in Gifford's corner should hold a license. One of the cornermen was his father which in a way explains why it wasn't stopped and at the same time makes it that much worse.

https://www.espn.com/mma/story/_/id/27853748/california-state-athletic-commission-passes-rule-combat-extreme-weight-cutting

UFC isn't going to do anything on their end to discourage massive weight cuts so say goodbye to PPV's and big-name ESPN cards in California once this goes into effect.
