Rogan was saying today he heard from people that Ngannou had been refusing to train on the ground. Obviously that's gonna chance now haha


He is so big there has got to be a bigman who can give him fun wrestling training

Even Olympic wrestling could help him a lot

Agreed CI

If he's smart he'll go to a reputable wrestling gym. AKA would be perfect, but they prob won't train him because of Cain

DC going for broke. Damn. I especially love that it got made without that yearlong back and forth through the media with rumors and vocal negotiations flying everywhere.

And although her last fight was a dud (after pulling out from the original date) I think Nunez vs Cyborg will make up for it if it gets inked. But I have my doubts.

Supposedly cyborg's side is already done.

And Chael was talking about how this is a win/win for DC. Even if he loses he's expected to lose being the smaller guy. But if he wins it cements him as one of the best of all time

Jacare finished Brunson again.

Jacare vs Gastellum to see who gets a shot after the winner of rockhold/Romero for title shot?

And who will that Paulo costa guy fight next? Middleweight division looking stacked rn

Head kick does Brunson in. This game is an MFer. Just brutal.

22, I like the Nunez/Cyborg matchup for all the obvious reasons but I still have a suspicion that Amanda isnít as game for that matchup as sheís letting on. I hope Iím wrong but she doesnít seem to be the type to put herself in obvious harm. Pulling out of the first attempt at a rematch when almost every MMA fighter would have sucked it up at that stage and then playing it absolutely safe when the fight finally did take place. Dana doesnít want to promote her as a headliner again after that snoozer so this may be a way for her to get her name out there and generate some media traction again. Her luster is all but forgotten now. But weíll see.

And Bisping is right about DC being in a win-win situation. Seems like a very long time ago when DC was ragdolling heavyweights. Crazy stuff.

Yeah Nunez lost all her luster from destroying rousey. She isnít a draw at the moment. UFC could replace her with Meegan Anderson and it would prob sell better haha

To be honest, there's nobody taht's a draw other than Conor/Rousey/Brock and GSP (and GSP is a pretty big drop off in PPV buys from the trio). Jones/Cormier cracked 800K but on their own, neither is particular a big PPV star either.

I wonder if UFC would ever consider lowering their ppv prices. It's SO EASY to find streams nowadays that paying $60 is just not worth it. Even $50 on the PSN is too high

Yeah! Another reason I'm in favor of hydration testing too. The weight cutting has gotten ridiculous

watched a crap ton of mma vids on YouTube today.

Prepare yourselves fellas, from what I gather we're looking at the possibility of a Mayweather/McGregor MMA fight with extra rules before 2018 is out smh. That's one reason they haven't stripped Conor yet. It will be a freak show, but WME is in charge now so...

Max Holloway injured and out of UFC 222. Sean Shelby mulling over T-city as the replacement fight

Yep, another Yamasaki special. I'm going to dig up a torrent since I didn't catch it but over on reddit they're saying the other girl tapped earlier and par for the course, Yamasaki didn't see it.

230-3 in strikes. Dude....
