It's funny that Cruz is ducking call outs and waiting for a shot for some reason. You got clowned, go get a win first before you act entitled to a shot

Cruz was more than willing to fight guys like Mighty Mouse that are much smaller than him why not take a fight at featherweight ?

By looking far out into the 209 we are also looking far back into time, back toward the horizon of the universe, back toward the epoch of the Stockton Slap.

I'm not a fan of Rogan but him giving a gas bag like Alex Jones new avenues to spread his insanity is really depressing.

At this point it feels like the only question is whether it happens before the fight or after he wins the title (the latter would probably be far funnier)

Women's Strawweight Champion - Joanna Jędrzejczyk (13-0)
Joanna Champion, with Mighty Mouse, is the other champ to enter and exit 2016 with an intact belt. She was roughed up a bit by Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 205, but she was ultimately successful. No challenger.
The coming weekend's event will probably have title implications for this division; there's three strawweight bouts on it. Joanna was interviewed last weekend and claimed she'd know her next opponent 'in a few days', and apparently Jessica Andrade (who fights Angela Hill on the 4th) was already offered a straight title shot in April/May but didn't want to go that long without a fight after her Dec. 30 bout fell through.

Going to guess Andrade gets the shot if she wins; if Overkill manages to derail her I dunno what happens. Hill may get it, but Grasso is second on the card (not sure if they consider it a co-main) so if she wins she could get fast-tracked I guess? Also Tecia Torres is fighting Bec Rawlings on the undercard but I'm not sure either of those are in contention.

I don't think tj's attacks are more difficult to defend against than Dom's and I can't stop seeing Dom committing to, and whiffing, a dozen strikes in a row.

TJ can throw a straight, unlike Cruz, so that will probably help.

Jones beats up DC to unify the belts, gets popped again, and DC goes back to being Interim Champ in the meanwhile while Jon goes on his 20th redemption story

For whatever reason people didn't really admit Rockhold's flaws and limitations as a striker even after Vitor punked him. You can't really just write it off as "TRT" when a guy's entire striking game is shut down like that.

(I have now made two posts in a row about Vitor and don't know how I feel about that)

vitor is really good .. this thread really sleeps on him. his style isnt pretty but its no joke either

Andrade's definitely getting the shot if she wins. Grasso actually isn't ranked as high as Torres (#12 v #6) but if she wins and Andrade somehow loses I expect they'll go with the undefeated v undefeated angle.

I don't think there's really anyone else whose highs have been so high and whose lows have been so low. He's absolutely had a hall of fame career for fighting in the UFC for 20 years alone.

Agreed. Its two of the cleaner striking games in the ufc going head to head with full 25 minute gas tanks. Keen as hell to see that.

i think everyone in this thread has always said vitor is insanely dangerous and prone to gassing and giving up which isn't really sleeping on him so much as saying exactly what's prone to happening when he fights.

Middleweight is kind of a weird scissors paper rock division anyway.

I don't think Weidman can handle the iv or drug testing (take your pick) and Rockhold definitely improved dramatically after the Vitor fight (hes a tough match up for anyone when hes on roids), but I dont know if Rockhold would beat either romero or jacare.

The latter two would probably split a 4 fight series.

The coolest thing about the divison is the champ who broke everyones plans and then smashed beers and poo poo talked him at the press conference.

MacGregor is still MacGregor. The only fight to which hes even slightly connected right now is one against retired 49-0 boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, so basically hes not connected to any fights which will ever happen.
Conor Macgregor? Where da fook do you think he's from?

This seems like a horrible fight for Nick and I hope he takes it. I'm not even anti-Nick, I just love seeing Maia breakdance on guys who have good jiu jitsu.

I wouldnt necessarily call it horrible. Nick should just take a tune up fight and then look for a big pay day.

i defended vitor for years but the fact is he was always roided and one dimensional. its a great dimension but hes never been able to win a fight where he had to do anything but exchange with slower, sloppier punchers
