    Yeah pretty ridiculous, Jones coming off the back of a suspension and Gus hasn't fought in the best part of 2 years.

    Problem is the LHW division is pretty paper thin at the moment, who else :/

    On Khabib's instagram he's threatened to leave UFC if his guys are not reinstated into the UFC roster.

    He has zero leverage, the UFC will gladly let him walk rather than have Dana go back on his word. If anything they'd probably welcome it, Khabib isn't a draw, he's not a particularly entertaining fighter either. They'd rather let Conor have another shot at the title.

    His corner is gone, Dana has said as much. The last person to sucker punch someone was Daley and we all know what happened there, I foresee his team being fired and him taking another fight in the UFC once it's all blown over. Money talks.

    How is Bellator's Lightweight division? Decent? Still, I'd really like to see him fight Ferguson at least before he'd make the move.

    Im not a UFC follower other then the one off big fight,

    Could someone tell me why McGregor had two belts in the press conference when hes not a champ ?

    I thought the match was really one sided with all of abuse and big talk I thought McGregor could would have shown something to back it up but I did think he got off light in the match.


    As for dana white from what i've seen he seam biased

    He has Dana in his pocket and basically does what he wants at this point.

    Mcgregor won two titles in two seperate weight divisions when he was active, however when he had his fight with mayweather and took a 2 year break from UFC they stripped him of his titles as he wasn't active and not fair on other fighters, but as he has the two belts at home he brings them with him as in his head he believes he is still the champ as he hasn't had a fight for his belts. Hope that makes sense.

    Amusing moment from this weekends Bellator event. Guy takes a good kick square in the knackers. Walking it off. Dan M. calls Doctor into cage. Doc is woman. Guy is clutching his nuts. She looks down. Looks at Dan. Dan laughs. She leaves.

    I would have insisted on a physical exam on the spot!

    Rockhold out of his fight with Weidman at UFC 230 - looks like Jacare might be the one to step in as he's on the same card against David Branch.

    Should be a decent scrap!

    Adesanya looked great and a horrible stoppage from Dan 'worst ref in the business' Mirigliatta. Great fight though.

    Main event as expected, when a fighter says they aren't ready they aren't ready. Strange matchmaking.
