    Khabib's probably going to get Michael Johnson or winner of RDA/Ferguson.

    I have no issue with McGregor getting the title shot. He's beaten more top 10 155ers in the last 2 years than Khabib has without even fighting at that weight.

    Can't blame him. They've said this whole time conor was defending after the diaz fight and now look. Conor is never defending at 145. Aldo was humiliated by the loss and wanted a chance to redeem himself but now that's been taken away.

    As I said, Khabib vs Michael Johnson has been added to the card.


    Covering bases incase of injuries/pullouts its seems.

    Cant really blame Aldo, its a shitty situation for him. I'm a Conor fan...and I fully understand that first and foremost UFC is a business and they need to make money, but this is three fights now since winning the 145 pound Title that Conor has had outside of the division, outside of a division that has several worthy contenders. 1 fight I'm fine with, 2 I can forgive because it was about Conor having the balls to want his rematch straight away at the same weight. But a third in a row...as cool as it is, its terrible for the 145 division and for Aldo who is a disrespected legend and icon of the sport.

    Thanks to Jabberwocky for the amazing Gabrielle gif

    I want to see Aldo in Bellator if he doesn't retire, and i think the UFC have disrespected him he was there only champion and he was undefeated for 10 years he should of got a immediate rematch like Mcgregor did against Diaz.

    I don’t have any sympathy for Jose Aldo. People seem to forget or downplay that the featherweight title spent plenty of time on ice whilst Aldo was champion; there were two different times where it was over a year between Aldo defending the title. You can say it wasn’t Aldo’s fault he got injured, and to a point that’s true, but he was always getting injured, always getting hurt, and at some point you need to dial back the training if it’s putting you on the shelf so regularly. There’s also the fact that Aldo has made zero effort to improve his English. You don’t have to be a brash talker or even that eloquent, but promotion is part of the game, and Aldo made no effort to tackle that side of the fight game until Conor practically forced him to do so.

    After the first fight with Conor, Aldo talked and talked and talked about wanting a rematch, saying that he had to have the rematch. So when Rafael Dos Anjos was injured, who was the first fighter the UFC called to take his place; Jose Aldo. But what did Aldo do? Turn the fight down. The same fight he talked and talked and talked about wanting. Aldo wasn’t injured, so he didn’t have that excuse. But he still turned the fight down.

    But the biggest joke about Aldo being upset is that Conor holding the featherweight title, moving up to take the lightweight title and then vacating the featherweight title is exactly what Aldo wanted to do himself years ago. Aldo’s plan was to hold the featherweight title, move up and win the lightweight title, and then vacate the featherweight title so that his teammate Renan Barao could move up a weight class and take the title, allowing both titles to stay within the Nova União camp. Funny how Aldo’s changed his tune about ‘holding the belt hostage’ when he’s not set to be the beneficiary of doing so.

    She's coming back

    Ronda Rousey will return at UFC 207 on December 30th to challenge Amanda Nunes for the UFC Women's Bantamweight title.

    Also if Ronda wins then theyll also look to set up a Cyborg fight?


    Interesting for sure. It's a good time for her to come back I think.

    Re: UFC fight announcement/changes/TUF coaches thread

    Does Ronda beat nunes tho. She can't charge her and take her down because Amanda will wrap her up like a pretzel. She's gonna have to hang back and let nunes punch herself out but if we learned anything from the tate fight it's that a patient nunes is a fucking behemoth. I'll take a nunes win with a nunes/cyborg superfight please and thank you sir.

    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    A shit ton of fights have been announced recently but I can't remember them all:


    DC vs Rumble 2
    Jouban vs Platinum Perry the racist douchebag

    and the one i'm looking forward to the most:

    Korean Superboy vs Cub Swanson.

    That fight will be insane and I will not be shocked if Superboy puts Cub down inside the first five.

    Not UFC but Shane Carwin has been saying he signed to fight Fedor in RIZIN. That would be fucking bananas.

    I have a hard time seeing Fedors team agree to that fight. If Fabio can take him to a draw then what's a giant ass sledgehammer fisted Carwin going to do to him...

    Daniel Cormier is out of UFC 206 due to injury. The UFC are looking to keep Anthony Johnson on the card.

    Not sure AJ takes another fight until he gets his title shot.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it's scrapped altogether tbh if they can't bring in a replacement. Or they put it on free tv.

    Re: UFC fight announcement/changes/TUF coaches thread

    There's no one for rumble to fight and idk why he'd fight anyway. MAYBE if jones wasn't out for popping some boner pills you could have done the interim fight and it actually makes sense. Obviously not gonna happen. Do you put Bader in and make it an interim/#1 contender fight? I don't see how. One you have to resign him immediately and two rumble has no incentive.

    Unless they haul a truck up to gsp to make the card then I'd be surprised if anything meaningful happens. There's still some good fights but idk.

    if Joe Soto can headline a UFC PPV then goddamnit we can find someone for Rumble to smash.

    fuck it Doo Ho Choi can fight twice. Guy will probably KO Rumble as well as Swanson.
