Dana White and Tyron Woodley calling each other full of poo poo is entertaining

For his first UFC PPV, Jimmy Smith did a pretty solid job working with Anik. Sort of wish he did the post fight interviews but whatever.

His reaction to Romero hammerfisting Rockhold's lead leg was pretty good.

Yeah Jimmy Smith is really really good and John Anik is getting worse. I hope we see DC/Smith sometime soon.

Weidman demanding a title shot is comical.

Its so the Weidman thing to do now. After every fight he declares himself the true champion.

But if they cut her in these circumstances it could end up in court, where that could get debated, which is what I'm talking about.

I know that the US doesn't give a poo poo about workers rights, and that the UFC could cut her and get away with it, but that wouldn't stop her from litigating over it. Much of this is about what ends up in front of judges where.

CommonShore posted:

From what I've read, the "contract vs employee" problem is exactly what the UFC union people are trying to address. If a fighter were released in a circumstance inconsistent with those in which other fighters were released, it would give that fighter a chance to lawyer up and argue it in front of a judge. And this whole thing over the last 3 years has been about what gets taken to a judge.

Rory and Mousasi aren't the same because they elected to exercise their free market rights. The only winning fighter I can think of who was released like that without some kind of free market situation is Jared Rosholt.

She wouldn’t be released; they could just decide not to re-sign her if this is in fact the last fight in her contract. That’s not a cut and has zero legal backing.

Alex Gustafsson says he'd take a LHW Rockhold fight and I'm pretty sure if he stopped running at some point during the fight, he might actually kill Rockhold

LOL I love it when guys call out people that just got brutally knocked out....in another weight class. Gus showing true courage.

He already called out DC, he is moving on. You should too.

Moving on to middleweights that just got their brain scattered. Right!

Oh does he have a weird thing about Gus too?

You seem to have a weird thing with me. Do you want a kiss?

Also I don't think Rockhold wanting to move up has anything to do with having an easier time moving up the ladder as it has to do with him having a harder time cutting weight as he gets older.

Nah. The unceasing urge to call men who fight other men for a living cowards denotes an insecurity that I don't find particularly attractive.

Sorry sweetie.
