Dana White came out and said that Ferguson was offered Holloway for the interim title and declined.

It's also on Ferguson's twitter I believe, something along the lines of been offered a fight but not sure it meets his standards

Why would Ferguson want another interim title? Already had one and got stripped for his trouble.

UFC needs to END interim (bleep)

I don't care if you blew out your prostate.
When Fight day comes
Your belt is put in the middle of the ring
If you're not there
It is given to the Challenger
/EOFS

These are Men
They work til near death to improve their craft and are (bleep) on by these interim games
While stuck in a contract, right?


(bleep) Cormier too
He owed Stipe a rematch but he's being a (bleep) about it

I could give two (bleep) about old man Brock fighting a UFC fight .. who cares

Ferguson on some different ish but I like what he brings even if the chip on his shoulder occasionally hits planetoid status. I think OLG is absolutely right. Been there done that with the disposable interim tag.

Poirier/Holloway (rhymes lol) is a strike lovers dream. Max absolutely dismantled T-City but homie had Rousey level head movement so his skill set was far easier to showcase. Dustin is a bad boy too and boxes like a vet. Great footwork and angles, combinations and is smart and a warrior. I think someone (possibly both) leave concussed.

Who y’all got with Woodley and Usman? Wood sounds a little different leading up to this one. Seems to respect Usman as a threat far more or something. Maybe I’m off. That’s the only reason I think the fight might go either way. Is it the wrestling of Kamaru?

I can't pick against Woodley. Usman is a stud and I wouldn't be exactly surprised if he wins, but Woodley just seems to be on a different level than everyone else. To me there is just no way to know if Usman has the stuff until he is tested against Woodley.
I feel the same way about Jones vs Smith. I am no fan of Jon Jones, but no way I predict his defeat.

You can take a fight with Max and STILL grab a fight with Conor or Khabib. He's just cutting off his nose to spite his face financially. You don't get paid if you're not fighting.

I didn't know Porier beat Max by arm bar submission when they were much younger.

Their fight in April should be VERY interesting to say the least! It sucks for the 145ers though. That division is gonna get held up.

I think Woodley beats Usman but it might be very tough. Usman does seem to have a good chin. If Woodley loses then he might as well switch to ONE FC because no way Dana gives him a rematch.

Agree. Initial instinct was T-Wood all day but his respect level for Usman got me double-thinking if it was such a shoo-in.

Gotta figure he can wrestle with Usman but that right hand got TNT all up in it and Usman's boxing, while not rudimentary, is not impressive to me.

I don't see Jon Jones losing, but I can see a 36-year-old Woodley getting put to sleep by a bigger, stronger fighter in Usman. Obviously, Woodley can do the same to Usman, but I'd love to see Woodley lose since his interviews are cringe-worthy every time he's on the mic. Wouldn't be surprised either with all the time he's spending in the studio recording his terrible music instead of preparing for this fight.

Best card in a long time this weekend. Hopefully no last second pull outs.

I initially had TWood by 2nd round TKO but after watching some more Usman tape I'm not as confident in that prediction. If Usman can avoid that counter right and turn it into a dirty fast paced fight with lots of clinching, wall work, and well timed TD attempts while not falling into Woodley's trap he can possibly out work Tyron, tiring him out to win a decision.

Jon Jones should easily walk through Smith. He shouldn't even bother trying to stand with him. Just take him down and end him any way he wants

Askren-Lawler is interesting. Ben hasn't fought in a long time and has face only cans the last like 5-6 years. Lawler is coming off of ACL surgery and was looking like a shell of himself before that. If Ben plays it super safe like usual, he should be able to LnP Robbie for a boring decision. I am hoping Lawler catches him coming in with a vintage right that puts the Llama to sleep.

Damn! this card is so stacked. There's 2 great prelim fights with Johnny Walker-Misha & Zabit-Stephens. Plus we get to see if Cody can regain form. I'm (bleep) amped !!

Got to, right? Maybe T's just giving Usman due because he respects him more on a personal and professional level? Usman climbed the ladder methodically and "earned" his shot the old fashioned way. Also, maybe Wood is just more at peace with where he is in his career, in the company and just secure as a champ and knows he's just establishing legacy now. Less to prove?

Good point on Ty's conditioning issues. Although, to be fair, I do tend to think that they've been overstated, at least to a degree.

We'll see if Usman can employ a game plan that can test Woodley. But that explosive right hand is going to be sizable obstacle to overcome if pushing pace is the strategy.

Thinking about it, this fight does possess some potential to be a boring watch, unless Kam is willing to eat one for the opportunity to clinch.

Knock on wood but this might be the first card without a injury pullout with either the main or co-main in 2019.

Easy with the jinx material homies!!!

Stephens is gonna take a lot of punishment to get into the pocket with Zabit so him getting pieced up seems the most likely outcome to me. If he can walk through the fire he'll have to and have enough to wear down the upstart, good on him.

Two "adverse drug test findings" but still cleared to fight.

Over it.
