The sale of the UFC really happened this time.

  • And it sold for 4 BA-ZILLION dollars
  • Sounds like Dana White’s cut is north of $300 MILLION dollars
  • Dana also received a 5 year contract to remain with the UFC
  • He stands to make roughly 18 MILLION a year
  • IF what we READ was true
  • So what now? What is next for the UFC?
  • And what ABOUT the UFC is worth 4 BA-ZILLION dollars?
  • We have to think the new owners have big plans and possibly a new vision
The Week of UFC 200 was an amazing week
  • But… the best fights may have taken place a day or 2 before UFC 200
  • Thursday at UFC Fight night
  • Eddie Alvarez shocked everyone when he knocked Rafael dos Anjos out in the first round
  • WINNING the Lightweight Title
  • A lot of people… including Eddie Alvarez… thought dos Anjos might be unstoppable
  • In the CO-Maine Event
  • Roy Nelson took one of the hardest…
  • If not THE hardest punch…
  • In the history of punches from Derrick Lewis
  • After a dominate first round, Derrick Lewis said “I just can’t”
  • And Roy Nelson controlled rounds 2 and 3
  • Well…so we thought buuuuttt…
  • APPARENTLY the judges thought Derrick won 2 of 3 rounds
  • Giving him the official split decision victory
  • AND THEN… Derrick… not feeling so hot about how things went down
  • Asked for the opportunity to AVENGE his victory
  • How does that work?  Are we even hyped about a fighter AVENGING a win… Hmmm
  • Joseph Duffy pulled off a first round win over Mitch Clarke with a rear naked choke
Friday we had the UFC 200 Weigh ins and The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale
  • The Weigh-ins were not that exciting
  • But to maybe no one’s surprise
  • Johnny Hendricks DID NOT make weight!
  • He was really close no burp could save him!
  • In missing weight… he gave up 20% of his purse
  • Soooo Friday Night, we had TUF 23 Finale
  • Arguably the best fight of the week
  • Joanna Jedrzejczyk defeats Claudia Gadelha by decision
  • The first 2 rounds Claudia was able to take Joanna down with ease
  • In round 3, Claudia’s energy quickly disappeared and like a champion Joanna kicked into another gear
  • Rounds 4 and 5 was all about Joanna beating up Claudia
  • Props to Claudia though, because anyone else would have been finished
  • But Claudia survived all 5 rounds
  • Your TUF 23 Champions
  • Andrew Sanchez and Tatiana Suarez
  • Of the 2, Tatiana looked the most impressive
  • Doo Ho Choi quickly knocked Thiago Tavares out
  • Gray Maynard dominated Fernando Bruno
  • Winning by unanimous decision
  • Gray looked like the Gray of old
  • AND Kevin Lee knocked Jake Matthews out in the first round
And Now UFC 200
  • Leading up to this dang thing there was more drama than a Jerry Springer show during ratings week
  • Connor out
  • Jon Jones Out
  • Brock in
  • Anderson Silva in on 2 days notice y’all
  • Amanda Nunes came out aggressive and beat Miesha Tate
  • Miesha gave up her back
  • Nunes choked Tate out in the first round
  • Brock Lesnar coming back after 5 years
  • Dominated Mark Hunt for 2 rounds
  • I mean… say what you want buuuutttt most believe in ring rust
  • and Brock D O M I N A T E D the 8th ranked heavyweight in the UFC
  • DC has taken a lot of slack, mostly from Cowboy Cerrone for taking the safe approach against Anderson Silva
  • DC won all 3 rounds taking the decision victory
  • Anderson looked really good all things considered
  • You know, recent surgery
  • 2 days notice
  • oh and fighting the best Wrestler in the UFC
  • AND jumping up in weight
  • Aldo and Edgar, what is there to say
  • Some people really liked Aldo’s performance
  • Buuuutttt….
  • this was a slow and boring fight (like the first time… ahem)
  • Aldo is clearly Edgar’s kryptonite and won by unanimous decision
  • Cain is back y’all!
  • He looked like the Cain of old and heck even had new tricks!
  • He added head kicks and then won with a  first round TKO over Travis Browne
  • Get it!
  • Julianna Pena pulled out the unanimous decision win over Cat Zingano
  • Johny Hendricks in recent fashion lost the fight with the scale and then again with his fight in the octagon.
  • Kelvin Gastelum won via unanimous Decision
  • TJ Dillashaw won via unanimous decision over Raphael Assuncao
  • Sage Northcutt somehow escaped a deep arm bar to win by unanimous decision
  • Joe Lauzon took Diego Sanchez out with a first round TKO.
Someone needs to renegotiate
  • Former Champion TJ Dillashaw made $50,000
  • Sage Northcutt made $100,000
  • Joe Lauzon made $108,000
  • and in a loss Diego Sanchez made $80,000
  • I assume TJ has fired his agent, because if he lost he would have only made $25,000
  • Maybe hire Brocks agent.  He made a smooth 2.5 million win, lose or draw.
