    Way to quick to make interim belts thesedays. Conor only won the belt 4 months ago and theyve already scheduled an interim title fight. DC last defended his just 6 months ago.

    Though is this the first time theres ever been an interim LHW Champ?

    I don't agree with interim belts either but in Conors case, he should be forced to defend his Featherweight Championship, UFC are catering to him as if the whole organisation will collapse if he is gone, yes he is their biggest draw but they will still make lots of money if he's not there. Conor v Edgar would have got me really excited for UFC 200, instead we are seeing 2 rematches...big deal.

    Jones will murder OSP in the first round but I don't think it should be for the interim championship.

    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    The thing with Conor though is he only won the belt not even 4 months ago. He's fought once since then and has another fight lined up for a couple of months time from now. There's no reason he cant then fight again in October/November defending the belt, at which point he'd have 4 fights in 12 months. 1 Title defence, and 2 fights against a top 10 guy at a much higher weight class. If he can still defend the belt in between these fights I have no issue with it. I would gladly take Conor who fights regularly, takes on every single challenge, goes up 2 weight classes just because and still defends the belt as often as most UFC Champs do over the typical UFC Champ who fights once a year if we're lucky and pulls out of fights every time they break a nail. The sport needs more Conor McGregors and less Weidmans, Velasquez's, even Aldo's etc.

    I don't think he deserves a rematch against Diaz, if he has to go up in weight fight someone new but don't book the rematch so quickly just because the UFC were banking on you winning. I'm not interested at all in this rematch, certainly won't be paying to watch UFC 200, probably watch it at the pub or stream.

    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    I do agree with that, he doesn't necessarily deserve the rematch. But both guys want the fight, it'll sell huge, and that's all that matters. I love Diaz v Conor. Its two high level guys that never ever fight for points, they just fight, and not wild, stupid MMA zero technique brawls. But genuinely skilled, genuinely high level fighters who love a proper fight. Book it for every UFC card ever and I'd be happy.

    I think Dana said something like 'Jones never lost his title in the Octagon' and that's why they made this fight for the interim LHW title.

    It does make sense in taht regard, but they shouldn't get into the habit of making interim Titles when the belt was last defended just months ago.

    Agree, especially if you know that DC is just out for 4 to 6 weeks. I guess they want to sell the rematch now with both men holding a title.

    DC better hope the MRI is good news if he wants a full training camp.

    A better choice, but I have a bad feeling this could be an ugly ugly mess of a fight.

    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    If the Jon from the OSP fight shows up then he's getting flattened IMO. Thought that the fight in the 1st-3rd rounds was there for OSP to take control.

    But as i've said, DC is still to get a MRI on his leg I believe - he should be cleared to fight but the question is if he is cleared with enough time to get a full camp in. DC needs to get in Jon's face right from the start and force him into gassing.

    Re: UFC fight announcement/changes/TUF coaches thread

    I don't think there's anyway osp jones shows up. I was going back and watching all his fights in prep for this one and he looked like a 100% different guy until he got those elbows and kicks in. The Arsenal is there he just wasn't pulling the trigger.

    The second he's standing across from Big Baby he's gonna bring it.

    Lawler vs Woodley is official for UFC 201 and is the title bout headliner.

    Just saw this as well. Weidman hurt again.

    Maybe, Bisping does fight for the title? That wouldn't be too horrible, but Jacare is a very interesting possible match up.

    Uriah got pulled from the Silva fight. Give me uriah/rockhold and I'm in. Souza probably didn't end up with a medical suspension because vitor didn't touch him but rockhold/wiedman was a blood feud. Someone explosive like uriah could fill in and still draw an interesting match-up.

    It's an interesting thought but I have a sneaking suspicion that Uriah vs Anderson is being rescheduled for UFC 200.

    I love Hall, but he hasn't earned anything quite yet. Too up and down, plus he's coming off a loss. If not Jacare who is ranked higher...give it to Robert Whittaker, plus Bisping already fought Luke and got Subbed, but I forgot. There is slim pickings to find a replacement.

    Re: UFC fight announcement/changes/TUF coaches thread

    Hall is a top 10 guy with a wild card offense. They don't always go to guys that earned a shot and need something to draw the main. It should absolutely be jacare but I'm all in on uriah.
