That main event was terrible match making. Conor needs to defend his title in his own damn weight class. I hope Nate fights Lawler or GSP, those are the biggest fights that can save this card.

I was shocked to learn yesterday that Brock Lesnar will be returning at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt. He is still under contract to WWE so this is just a one off. With the main event of Cormier/Jones 2 this card looks really stacked now.

I actually like both guys, not fussed who wins but will be interesting to see how Brock takes those punches.

As he said, if he can get Hunt to the ground he has a very good chance. He just has to make sure he doesn't cop one on the way in for the shoot.

Jones gone from UFC 200, USADA testing. It's pretty ironic that Brock Lesnar is now the main event fight.

Don't forget the Fertitta's and White have still kept a small % of a $4 billion company. Deal of a life time

Man that was an awesome card. I had to go to my nephew's 3rd bday so stayed off my phone all day and caught up last night. I really hope they make Mcgregor/Khabib, this will prove to me that he is truly the real deal.

I watched it "live" at the Doylo today.

A couple of brutal head kicks followed by a barrage of punches was too much for the highly fancied Brazilian.

Congrats to Rob.

He generates so much power from the shoulder. It's fast and other fighters don't recognise it as a power punch then WHAM! It makes for great watching.

Rob Whittaker with a great performance to win the interim middleweight title in the UFC today.
Fantastic achievement for a man on 26 years of age. I think he matches up very well against current champ Michael Bisping too.

I am a little annoyed at the lack of coverage TBH. This didn't even make most sports bulletins but in the world of professional fighting this was a bigger achievement IMO than Horn getting a dodgy decision over a half arsed Manny Pacquiao.

Isn't it a bit coincedence, that he does it once max twice every fight he fights until he gets warned, then miraculously for the rest of a 5 round fight he stops himself from doing it. By that time the damage has been done to the opponent. (Oh yes please tell me that an eye poke has no effect).

If he can stop himself from doing it after a warning, he can stop himself from doing it all fight simple as that.

Until he wins a fight without giving an eye poke I'll respect him as a fighter and not a dirty fighter who does hit and runs.

If he will dominate DC as you say.. Keep in touch, when the fights about to happen message me and bet me, put some money on it to back it up
Forget to get back in touch with you about that bet.

Oh well ;)

Anyone else feel that the UFC is heading down a similar path to boxing in regards to the way the division titles are being managed?
It's far from the overly complicated and excessive systems of belts and weight classes boxing has but intrim belts, champions delaying divisions, the GSP and McGregor situations and even the way fighters are starting to negotiate just seems a little like it's getting away from what made it's popularity rise so quickly.

I'll answer your questions 2 years later lol

Yeah for sure, it's always been about what sells over what's fair in the UFC. What sells is title fights and if a champ is injured rather than have a PPV without a title fight they will place a intrem belt on the line.

There's a level of pettiness atm, Coby and Usman seem to be asking for more money as they are both Champ and Intrem Champ and have been using their belts to hold up the division with their demands. UFC said f that and then created a new belt called the "BMF" belt for Diaz and Masvidal to fight over and gave them the Champs PPV spots.

It devalues the real belt I feel, I'm assuming the winner of the BMF Belt will vs the winner of the Champ Vs Intrem fight and that should sort out that mess in the future.
