Fuuuugggggg. I hope Max's team are thinking long term for his well being, physically and financially.

On another note, apparently the TUF 27 finale is tomorrow. I actually really enjoyed this latest season, which seems to have taken a step further away from reality-tv-drama and moved closer to a sort of sensitive documentary about the live of these fighters. Anyways, free fights and Israel Adesanya is headlining.

I had to look at the first post to remember if Ortega was an interim champ or not, lol. We don't know anything yet, but if Dana White offered Ortega an IC fight to stay on this card and he turned it down, then he's an imbecile. He won't make more money on another card than he would co-maining for international fight week, and if they do end up setting up another IC fight, Dana is spiteful enough to absolutely tell Ortega that he lost his title shot and needs to wait for the winner of Holloway-new IC.

Thats fine, but if he cares for the title, he'd take the fight too, if the UFC is threatening to bypass him. What is he fighting for if its for neither money nor a title?

edit: Ortega may have successfully called Dana's bluff.

Felder is moving up a weight class for this one, so it might be the other way around.

Felder is legit good and smart and platinum is not tho. he's been riding the wave of sending ellenberger to hell but Plat is plodding and predictable. seems to be easily stymied by lateral movement and distance control.

Felder is a larger man than Mike Perry. he's 5'11" and he walks around in the 185-190 range. Plat is 5'10" and seems to walk around at ~180, supposedly he was 177 going to camp for the Alves fight

That's what I thought before I watched the video. Hawaiians always sound stoned to me (I remember someone on a season of ANTM that I was sure was brain damaged until they mentioned she was born and raised in Hawaii), but his demeanor on UFC Tonight was worse than standard issue Hawaiian.
