  • Bellator 161: Kongo vs Johnson
  • Kongo won, but why is this your main event?
  • UFC Fight Night:
  • Dustin Poirier vs Michael Johnson
  • Who saw Michael Johnson winning this one with a first round KO?
  • And if you did, you are lying.
  • Uriah Halls’ star is fizzling after being beat down in the first round by Derek Brunson
  • Evan Dunham beat Rick Glenn by a unanimous Decision

What we know until everything changes again
  • UFC 205 appears to be a cluster
  • Conor has come and gone
  • IS he hurt or is he playing more games
  • Dana put his foot down and confirmed, no Eddie Alvarez for Conor
  • Looks like Eddie might be bumped to 206
  • At UFC 207 Werdum vs Velasquez 2 is almost set
  • DC and Rumble Johnson 2 rumors are starting to heat up as well for UFC 207
  • More rumors for 207 suggest Ronda Rousey might co-main event this card
  • I read it on the internet, so it must be true….
  • Jose Aldo is calling out Showtime Pettis if McGregor does not come back
  • With DC campaigning against an immediate rematch with Jon Jones following his return from his PED suspension
  • Jon Jones is asking for a Heavy Weight Title fight
  • To that Cain Velasquez calls bullshit
  • Will Dana White cave in to Jon Jones …. again
  • Or will he do what is right and let Jon Jones earn his way back into good graces
  • For the 100th time
  • We know Cowboy will fight early and often.
  • But did you know that UFC fighter “Smilin” Sam Alvy has just inked his 4th fight in the last 5 months.
  • Putting in work work work work work (Rhianna)
  • Dana White tells Connor McGregor, “No more 170 for you”
  • Not sure if Connor heard about it yet since he is out becoming part of a video game
And They Be Running
  • Chael Sonnen … Who? …  Has signed with Bellator
  • Like any once was or sorta kinda was
  • He’s challenging the biggest, strongest competitors in MMA today
  • Or he’s challenging The Huntington Beach Bad boy
  • Or The Huntington Beach Bad Grandpa at this stage of his career
  • So some how Tito Ortiz is still a draw and still worthy of a callout
  • Oddly enough, as much as Tito hates Ken Shamrock, Tito is quickly becoming that guy
  • Oh and Chael you might still be under contract with WSOF… oops
  • Shane Carwin is rumored to be heading to Bellator
  • This could be a real bummer for all Bellator heavyweights
  • Carwin could possibly own this division for Bellator
  • I’m okay with this if Carwin goes back to knocking everyone the F out
  • And Joseph Duffy might be thinking Bellator after rejecting UFC latest offer
  • Royce Gracie laced up his track shoes and filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years

Low Blow
  • The UFC took to twitter to throw shade at their current welterweight champion
  • In attempt to promote a prelim fight with Nate Marquardt
  • What business sense is it to insult one of your champions in effort to promote a P-R-E-L-I-M fight.  Are we talking prelims?? (Allen Iverson voice)
  • Yes Nate beat Woodley 4 years ago under another promotion
  • With Woodley being your Champion, its bad form to promote a prelim at the expense of your champion
  • Booooooooo
