After his obvious twitter ghost writer the past few days it's good to see that Mike's still got control of at least some of his social media

drat I wonder why the ufc doesn’t want to promote the 4-2 champion that won’t fight

Montano was some no name that they brought in as a bracket filler for TUF but then she actually won the drat thing and they got stuck with her.

they said nicco was going to be fine in a couple days, im not sure why they didnt just put the fight on the conor card next month.

They think she's ducking Shevchenko so they're just gonna book Shevchenko vs. somebody willing to fight her for the title instead

I wonder if Barao was another USADA victim, within a few years he went from 30 straight wins to getting battered by some no name gift opponent they gave him on a Brazil card.

It would be funny if they just agreed to both say it to try and pressure the UFC into doing it. Regardless Nate vs. Poirier needs to be five rounds

Don't really know much about him other than he's won all 3 of his UFC fights so far according to wikipedia so hopefully Hunt will go out on a great win or at least an exciting fight

Justin Willis is a power punching fat guy with pretty fast hands that trains at AKA. He showed a bit of wrestling in his first UFC fight too. I think the UFC viewpoint is that hopefully they get a name win for an up and comer as they rid themselves of Hunt.

15. Willis is another young prospect. Hasn't fought anyone at all. Going to fight Mark Hunt next. We still won't know if he's any good if he wrestles Hunt. Very likely to be a walk off KO for Hunt's retirement fight.

I don’t think that Hunt is going to retire once his UFC contract is over, he’s gonna end up in some freakshow tournament in something like Road FC or in Bellator. An old guy kickboxer that used to be in the UFC is a prime Scott Coker signing.

Forrest, unlike Chuck, actually showed up to the offices and made them give him something to do. He's the only "lifetime" employee to stick around after the WME buyout, iirc, in large part because he's the only one that actually worked.

Big Nog kept his retirement job too because he, like Forrest, actually does stuff for the company.

Big nog has a UFC job?

Yeah, he got one of those Dana “I’m forcing you to retire by giving you this brand ambassador job” deals that Chuck and Hughes got but he actually does stuff like the Fight Pass show so he’s still around

I kinda just wanna see nate v porier I don't care if it is at 145, 155 165 or 209.

It's currently slated to be a three round lightweight fight at UFC 230. The main reason why I want it to be for the superfighter devision belt is so that it's five rounds instead of three.

“Suga” Sean O’Malley is out of UFC 229 due to USADA's new policy it seems.

The only thing that the new policy has to do with this is that they wouldn't have announced he failed a test and he decided to do so himself. Of course now once fights mysteriously disappear from cards it's still gonna start up speculation over who popped for what.
