    Won't believe it until it's Saturday and one of them is walking down the aisle. Just don't think it ever happens, apart from all the contract bs connor tho a fighter has never professionally boxed. To enter the ring against someone that has done it all their life at a high level is just suicidal. Any commision that sanctions that could be brought under investigation for some form of fraud/malpractice

    :russ:I said aldo has no one to face and should move up not that the division is dead. He's faced all comers and you want him to stick around for rematches and yair? I like the guy but aldo has nothing to prove there as for the sequels come on homie.

    Ps Who the hell is Gilbert Melendez? Dude is so overrated it's not even funny, he feasted in SF on Asians and journeymen got his contract and now all he does is lose. That bum doesn't deserve to face aldo

    I don't know whats worse that they havent met with most of the fighters or that it is now 7 months since the buyout and they don't even feel the need to introduce themselves to the media or state their vision. Could care less what media it could be a magazine, espn, YouTube just clue fans on what the plan is.. Either they don't have one or their arrogance knows no limits

    THINGS ARE WORSE THAN EVER.


    But seriously... UFC/WME are gonna get rekted when fighters finally unionize and WME can't take 60%-75% of the profit. They are just inciting the Union and I wouldn't be surprised that UFC gets sold again. WME are idiots for buying UFC for 4 BILLION DOLLARS and their management of UFC is beyond a joke.

    This is literally the most short-sighted, dumb move yet and probably the best sign that WME is solely looking at profit margins rather than actually improving the product (though I may be forgetting some other bonehead decision).
    Aldo better get past Holloway before he makes any claims. That fight isn't gonna be easy by any means. I'd like to see him fight Yair too, but mainly because I think a pure striker like Aldo would pick apart someone who pulls reckless ish like Yair does. I'm still skeptical on that dude and waiting for the "exposed" moment.

    Ex-champ Georges St-Pierre and UFC reportedly agree to terms for return

    I've got no love for bringing back older fighters after long retirements...but I'm tryna be positive; 36 isn't really THAT old I guess.

    Lol after what happened to Ronda, McGregor's recent antics and I am sure the early # for the 1st ppv of the year he basically had them over a barrel. I am only intrigued to see him against maia other than that :ld:with all that time away he is going to be relying on his wrestling even more than he did in the tale end of his initial run:hhh:


    Ps if this comes to past I wonder if they give him an immediate title shot, teach maia a lesson :mjlol:

    Breh, you read my mind with this post,



    They got this timed right before a title fight. This dude Maia better not got screwed over, he deserves a damned shot win or lose.
