I wouldn't be surprised if Nicco dropped the belt and took off running ala Randamie.

For sure, but Carla was the betting favorite in that fight. I can't imagine Nicco being anything better than a +500 underdog. Cyborg would have been the favorite as the challenger, except there was no champion. I can't think of times the champ was the underdog, but I'm sure it must have happened.

Ngannou was favored over Stipe.

I remember watching a fight on AXS where a dude had been ground and pounded unconscious but the ref just stood idly by. His reasoning was that he didn't know he was out because the dude's eyes were still open.

Then there's that SFL clip where a girl has been choked out and the ref is oblivious. Dennis Hallman, the girl's cornerman, had to jump in the cage to save her from probably dying.

Cyborg has an annoyingly large fanbase. I'm gonna blame Ariel since he basically drinks every drop of the Cyborg Kool Aid and The MMA Hour seems reasonably popular.

Or maybe it's just Brazil's fault. Like most things in this sport.

You can like Kevin Lee. It's fine. I don't fault you for it. He's definitely a good fighter. I just feel like his push came so soon. Sorry if this is the kind of thing Joe Buck says about Randy Moss.

I'm actually pretty excited about this one. Malki Kawa is telling anyone who will listen that Jones will not only get off, but fight by the end of the year.

There's no reason to believe him whatsoever, but I'd still like to see the proceedings.
