It's no longer a blue world, Max. Where could we go?



I think Donor will draw with anyone so it's kind if pointless to debate who might add an extra arbitrarily imagined number of buys due to a narrative, and I also can't bring myself to care about Conor vs Nate 3 when it's much more interesting to see both guys fight anyone else in a non rematch. Furthermore I am not convinced Conor will return to active MMA competition anyway so whatever.

Conor v Nate 3 shouldn't happen because I don't care about it and the fight will look exactly like the second one, but it should happen if it gets Nate five or more million dollars.

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.

Yes, I used to be a UFC fighter like you, then I took an injury to the knee. Also I can't make weight, my elbow is broken, and my dad won't let me fight Turks.

Khabib got a doctor to pull him out of his last fight because he was going to need the towel to make weight but God extremely does not want anyone except his wife to see his weanus which is why he showers in his underwear at AKA

That was pellegrino who was a black belt and Nate was a purple if I remember right

Nate said he actually liked Pellegrino when their fight was announced but said he was a hissy little bitch and wouldn't shake his hand after he tapped him.


Nate should want 20 million, it would do big numbers. Showing highlights of Nate choking him out, have Joe Rogan going all bald man intense talk times on the promo "A laaaaaaattta people BE-lieve Nate Diaz won that second fight". They got my 50 bucks.

It was pretty good but not "OMG GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW"

Volkov/Struve was good and Volkov winning was pretty cool I guess. Siyar coming back from a layoff and getting a good finish was also pretty nice to see as well.

Frankie is so good. Any word on when we're getting Frankie/Max? I assume it won't be on 217, that card is too top heavy as it is

Max hasn't fought KZ or Ortega, both of whom are top 10 and coming off of good wins.

But KZ is always injured.

The UFC and Reebok are making a big deal about new fight uniforms for title fights and for all main events, starting this weekend. Looking at the pictures, the difference looks really subtle, couple new colors, some highlights on the right thigh, but thats it. They are also going to have customized Reebok walkout t-shirts, I guess.
