We’ve been asking and Woodley answered

  • The Post Conor McGregor era of MMA
  • It’s not about divisions
  • It’s not about dominance
  • It’s about money
  • Woodley told Fox following his UFC 201 title win
  • “This is no longer a sport”
  • Bad news for Wonder Boy
  • GSP is interested
  • Diaz is interested
  • And both offer Woodley a higher pay day
Unfriended by the UFC
  • Fighters in volation of recent drug tests
  • Have been removed from the UFC Rankings
  • No Jon Jones, No Brock Lesnar
  • Make ’em say uhhhhh, na na na naaaaaa
UFC 202
  • Early reports show ticket sales under performing
  • Is it possible that MMA nation is tied of Conor?
  • Or Tired of Conor vs Daiz?
  • If Conor’s flame has fizzled…
  • I’m sure recent comments torwards WWE fighters has set him up nicley for a smooth and rich transition
  • If Conor wins, will Diaz get a rematch?
  • Best two out of three
  • I hope not right away, Conor might want to defend his title…
  • Or not
  • And do we even care…
  • And what If Conor loses, then what?
  • Does Conor lose his appeal
  • That frankly has already been kinda lost…
  • Hit us up on Facebook or Twitter, let us know your thoughts
Mighty Mouse
  • Is eyeing December for his match against the TUF 24 winner
Dominick Cruz
  • Wants to fight Alpha male Garbrandt
  • Cruz enjoy beating Alpha Fail fighters
UFC Fight Night 92
  • Butting up against the Olympics
  • The UFC has 863,000 viewers
  • Considering they were competing against world competition
  • 863,000 is not a bad stat
  • UFC Fight Nights on Fox have averaged 966,000 viewers over the past 7 months
  • Thanks MMAfighting.com for those stats
  • Bruce Lee Roy lost a 5 round desicion to Yair Rodriguez
  • Dennis Bermudez won by decision
  • Thales Leites (Talees Lay-tiss) (Where have you been?) won by rear naked choke
  • over Chris Camozzi
  • Santiago Ponzinibbio won a desicion over Zak Cummings
Now there’s an idea!
Drugs
  • The UFC has lost and looks like will continue to lose top talent
  • As a result of failed drug tests
  • Is a 2 year ban too strict?
  • There is a growing list of fighters sharing their concern¬† over the length of the suspensions
  • Um, How about you don’t cheat?
  • Now there’s and idea…
Fighters Union
  • If fighters unionize then what?
  • Lawyers and Union representatives will make good money
  • But why does everyone think a union will improve individual fighter wages
  • Or clean up the sport beyond what is already in place?
  • What about fighters negotiating better contracts?
  • Now, there’s an idea…
Another short title run?
  • While Overeem prepares for his title fight
  • Reports have Stipe still celebrating winning the title
