I would rather see Cerrone Diaz tbh. If Diaz gets offered a fight with Cerrone and Diaz declines they should really just give up on Diaz

I'd be fine with Khabib also

lol! 30 seconds after I posted I read that Khabib blew his knee out. Apparently Khabib blew it out 20 minutes after they made the fight with him and Cerrone. Sorry scram!

I think White has already given up on them. He'll either keep offering them wrestlers, or he'll offer fights that will be slugfests and sellers. He may only be offering them fights to honor the contracts and so he can win if a court battle ensues.

They're such ****ing idiots. I enjoy them as fighters but seriously, idiots. you're professional athletes with zero real world skills.

Your peak earning years are high, crammed up front when you're young and then drop off to nothing (because I can't imagine a Diaz brother commentated fight). They got a few paydays, a few bonuses, probably bought a house, probably still have money in the bank but that's going to dry up. They need reasoned financial advice in their lives and understand that they have to make as much money as they can, now. Then when they're in their late 30's and on, they can smoke all the weed they want.

Spike is re-running the Bellator Ppv and the Chandler Brooks fight was really great. I hope they fight again

The Diaz bros can do a sideshow fight for a big payday and fight each other.

Nah, I don't think anybody would care.


DW lit into their mgr on twitter, calling him an idiot and scumbag. Twas funny

On one hand when Dana goes off the deep end he spouts off invalid facts. His numbers about the ratings during Nate Diaz fights were wrong and he is not 1-3 in his last 4 fights, he has 2 wins and 2 losses. Dana also doesn't mention that his lowest rated fight was on a holiday and on the same night as a big boxing Ppv

On the other hand you have Diaz's agent tweeting about the money figures that "aren't fair" and he is completely off with his numbers.

So this is pretty much getting old.

Reports are that McGregor/Brandao was one of the best events ever in terms of fan engagement, fights, etc?

Apparently McGregor already agreed to fight Poirier next which is interesting. The McGregor hype train is at full ****ing steam but Poirier will be his first real test. If he aces that as effortlessly as he's aced the others, then it has interesting implications, that maybe he is a Chris Weidman type.

He's European. Let's see him get in their with a Chad Mendes, wrestler type. That's when I'll buy the hype.

I thInk they will protect him from that for a while.

I feel like him and Cub Swanson would be an amazing match up. Both fighters seem similar.

I'm hoping Aldo isn't super injured and the fight with him and Mendes will still happen soon

I signed up for the fight pass free week trial and watched the fights Saturday afternoon. Decent card, but the crowd was really insane. Place was packed for the beginning of the prelims, and they didn't let up for 4 hours. Main event was over less than two hours after the start of the card though, which was weird. More quick fights than anticipated, I guess.

Connor's wrestling may be his Achilles heel but his TDD is pretty damn good.
Roy Nelson has made a respectable UFC career out of TDD and counter-punching and he's a fat middleweight fighting monsters.

Does anyone know of McGregor has any jits whatsoever? .
