He was fucked up when the ref broke it up. He got saved from being sent to the upside down.

The UFC and ESPN announced a “groundbreaking agreement” Tuesday morning.

The promotion and ESPN reached a multi-year media rights agreement for exclusive live UFC content on ESPN+ and several other ESPN television, social and digital platforms in both English and Spanish. The UFC-ESPN deal is set to begin on January 2019.

Sports Business Daily Journal reports the five-year deal is worth $150 million per year.

This has made the rounds quite a bit, people calling him a bully. That guy does look completely out of his depth.

The first time he dropped him it just looked like the kid caught him with a good shot and he was responding. That combo at the end was unnecessary for a guy in your own gym.

Lmao. That dude is all hype anyway, pretty much anyone with decent grappling would smash him. I'm still surprised cause he's like 25.

Yair didn't get released for turning down fights, he got released because he made fun of it on twitter and Dana caught feelings.

Nick Diaz has been arrested following an alleged domestic violence incident Thursday evening in Las Vegas.

A person within the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department identified Nickolas R. Diaz, 34, who is listed in an online in-custody search for the Clark County Detention Center, as UFC fighter Nick Diaz. The person spoke to MMAjunkie on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to speak on the matter.

Diaz has been charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation, as well as misdemeanor domestic battery for the alleged incident.

Should have known that Till isn't a 170 pounder based on all the times he's blown weight. Not having the discipline to make weight is a horrendous sign for his chances too.

Sounds like if he can’t make that weight the purse gets renegotiated.

What a lot of people are missing is that he only has to be 188 by 1pm tomorrow. Fight time will be a few hours after that, he still has time to rehydrate after. This guy is getting so many gifts out there.

Till weighed 187.3 today so the fight is a go. I’m seeing on twitter the rumor of his family emergency is that his girlfriend went into labor this week and he went to the hospital and didn’t finish his cut.

Last week we see Usman win a horribly boring fight, this week Till blows weight and gets a highly controversial decision in what could be classified as a boring fight. All we need now is for Covington to win the interim belt by TKO due to injury and the welterweight curse will be full-blown.

I'm not sure he lost the fight overall but holy shit Jason Knight deserved to lose the fight due to his decision to devote the entire third round to sitting back in rubber guard and doing nothing. 3 losses in a row now for a guy that at one point look like he could be fighting the top level. And speaking of fighters deserving to lose NORDINE WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT SHIT. YOU ARE KILLING THE GUY STANDING AND YOU CHOOSE TO GO FOR A LEGLOCK.

I didn’t get the Jason Knight strategy either. Hurt the guy twice in the first round with strikes. Knock him down. Then somehow find a way to jump to guard.

I also gave the fight to Thompson. But it wasn’t an interesting enough fight to care about too much. This point fighting karate shit is getting old.

I just turned on the Utica card and this girls fight between Eubanks and Murphy - they are ranked #2 and #3 in the division? Murphy looks familiar but I can’t think of a single time I’ve ever seen either of these two girls fight.

I think those people who complained about there being too much MMA were actually right in the long run. I really wanted to watch Rivera/Marlon but I can't be assed to wait any longer and need to move on with my night. The rest of the matchups on this card were horrible as well.

So many non-UFC champs have gotten hype, but Moraes is probably the best one who proved the most once he got to the UFC.

Not a great show and it's actually more unfortunate that in this day and age of fans suffering from mma burnout that more people didn't tune in because in the cases of guys like Nathaniel Wood, Shorty Torres, Gregor Gillespie and Marlon Moraes you have guys that could be potentially contending if not winning championship fights within the next few years.

Yes, I posted instead of breakfalling, but it happens so fast you just do what comes to mind first.  I go for the cast on Wednesday and will know more then.  The doc who gave the initial examination thought I may need a pin.  Fingers crossed.

Dana said in an interview that the UFC is looking to bring back the 4pm weigh-in times as soon as possible which from what I can see has been met with resounding disapproval from fighters who are pissed off that a small minority of unprofessionals are ruining it for everybody else. Another option that I saw brought up on twitter (not by the UFC) would be allowing fighters to choose what time they want to be weighed but I doubt that would ever happen.

Of course they signed Greg Hardy to a contract off of his first pro fight and not the guy who showed off a great skillset and won by spinning hook kick. Of course they did.

Anybody who has Fight Pass needs to make it a priority to watch the Tuesday night episode of Contenders Series. All finishes, probably the best show they've put on since inception with a record amount of contracts being given out. Absolutely outstanding, makes you realize how good the Fight Night cards could be if they kept them short and stacked them with ranked talent.

Maybe but I'd want to see them run test cuts with her so it's safe. Speaking of Kayla I just read today that UFC fighter Tony Martin is smeshing that. Salute.

Jason High got fuuuuuuuuucked over on one of the worst ref calls I've ever seen and then likely secured his release and a suspension. Caught in a guillotine with no body language or hint that he's tapped or is about to tap and the ref steps in. The athletic comission actually reviews the call and still stands by the ref's decision. High pushes the ref and storms out of the cage throwing chairs and cursing at PFL officials. Buh bye, Jason.
