Volkan and Gus were supposed to fight but it fell off due to Volkan breaking his nose

Maybe he is almost broke. Not sure how many marijuana sponsorships he's still getting these days, and BJJ seminars only pay so much.

this is a job for the Punk

that's pretty shrewd diazing, as that's one of like two top 10 lightweight fights i think he's the better style matchup in

So the roadmap looks like

Diaz V Poirier
Khabib V MacGregor

Winner of each facing each other down the road?

No matter how that goes, it's beautiful.

lol yeah the champ from a heavier better division should fight a no name contender in the lighter shittier division. thats how it works

thatís not how could and should work. dj definately should sign for it, but tj can take one fight, destroy Sergio pettis then not even do can dispute him getting the fight

poo poo dj could move up, beat dust cruz, and ask for a 135 shot if he wanted

Referee authority after the final bell - In the rare case of a flagrant foul after the fight is over, if the inspectors from the AC have not yet re-entered the cage, then the ref can DQ a fighter.

Does anyone know which fight led to this rule change? This has gotta be a case of something crazy happened that they didn't know they needed a rule for until now.

I think DJ going up to 135 is inevitable, I also think despite being smaller than a fair few of those guys he's just so loving good that he'd probably be champ material, this is assuming he doesn't just retire into a life of video game sponsorships and xbox shilling or whatever. Codys super young but I wonder how much his game has improved, and if he's relying on just nailing TJ in the skull. I think TJ is definitely a much better rounded fighter but Codys impressive enough to make me wonder about them going at it again.

Nate vs DDP is a sick fight and I would watch the loving poo poo out of it. Like Dustin doesnt really have bad fights cos he's always aiming to finish and nate doesnt have bad fights because he never stops punching (or he loses in an entertaining fashion.) Refusing to get excited about it though for obvious reasons.

Dustin Poirier seems like as favorable a matchup as Nate is going to get at the top of the lightweight division so hats off to him on making this play.

Finally got around to watching the Stipe vs DC season of TUF and John Gunther is awesome. I'm glad he got a win in the finale recently because after watching his season I'm a big fan.

If only he was as good at fighting as he is at being an entertaining and interesting dude - he's Sage Northcutt levels of being likable

Imo Dustin can beat almost anyone as long as people donít poo poo talk him and get in his head like mcgregor and Johnson did, which makes the Diaz fight that much more compelling.

If both of the main fights on that card hold it'll probably be the biggest numbers ever, right?

If the main is Khabib vs Conor McGregor they're going to do gang busters on that thing. Maybe break UFC 202's numbers but they'll at least get close.

Also likes to wear punches more than he should, particularly in the pocket. Dustinís improvements have been really good, but I think Nateís a bad matchup for him in most regards.

DDP still sucks defensively, and he doesnít have a the good footwork or kicking or wrestling to leverage against Nate. Great matchup for the 209 here

Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.

If Conor loses and Nate wins they will just make Nate vs Conor III and both dudes will make a truckload of money.

I can honestly see a scenario where Nate wins and is rewarded with a Conor fight while Poirier gets a title shot against Khabib as a consolation prize.

I don't think Nate will want anything but a shot at Conor after a win, a title being on the line has never really seemed to matter to him.
