Theres actually some very good fighters in ufc I think once people get over this Rousey,Mcgregor & Jon Jones hype they might realise it. Max Holloway,Yair Rodriguez,Poirier...the list will always go on & the ufc will always go on. Its time people realised the ufc is about matching up good fighters & who is on a winning run. It only lost its way when it became the 'notorious' roadshow.

And the biggest worry is Mayweather wanting to fight in ufc with standup rules?Christ I hope its just a rumour because if a middle aged boxer only agrees to fight mma on his boxing rules I guess we see Mike Tyson as the new heavyweight champ of ufc by nxt year

Derick Lewis. Boring yet devastating. If he does become heavyweight champion dont expect big ppv figures

It feels bad that Khabib looked as the bully here, but obviously McGregor's pre-fight antics have gone way too far here, diving into political and religious themes. Masterful trashtalk, but it really wasn't necessary.

I think one thing was proved. Conor is not as good as he bellieves he is. Hes took on people out of his depth & hes now paying for it. But I guess he can afford to pay for it

ESPN reported that Tito Ortiz is going to face Alberto Del Rio at some point this year...

Excuse me, this is the MMA thread, not the TNA thread.

The UFC 239 card was good, but I'm not excited for the MMA summer. Holloway vs Edgar & Pettis vs Diaz seem to be the only fights I would be somewhat interested in.

I haven't watched MMA since Stipe lost the title.

I'm definitely a casual MMA fan, but Del Rio vs Tito is such a trainwreck I kind of want to see it.

Haven't followed MMA anymore for months but it seems I didn't miss anything.

Plus events like this make me wonder why people still bother.

Where do you get the gall to show up as an actual welterweight to a weigh-in for a featherweight fight? It's so unprofessional given the frequency of fights and the amount of buildup the opponent basically did for nothing as the fight is obviously off now. It's not rocket science. I get trying to get the literal "biggest" advantage possible, but if you know you can't make it, you just go up. It's that simple. They're allowing for one pound above the cap, but some geniuses seem to consider THAT the actual weight limit and are cutting down to that amount, only to end up surprised if randomization knocks on the door. Unbelievable.

The Diaz fight was intriguing, even without the ridiculous "BMF" belt, but guess what happened? It's turning into a bigger circus than the WWE.

What a cool idea. I've done a similar thing before in WMMA5 and it's a nice breath of fresh air. However, you can't do it with main eventers as it'll screw up your flow. It's a great way to keep older and declinging workers relevant, especially in the game given chins deteriorate really fast and they're pretty much useless in regular fights.

The whole survival concept is very interesting, though it's probably not a good idea. I like it a lot in pro wrestling.
