so khaboob isn't actually gonna fight Mayweather and its just one of my friends being really dumb, right?

Floyd just told TMZ there's a 70% chance it happens. Considering we spent years thinking there was a 0% chance when the exact same stuff was said to the exact same source about a Conor fight with him, who knows anymore

Wouldn't it be a hoot if Khabib actually won? I mean, I know he won't, but just imagine.

Poirier is accusing Diaz of 'playing games' and that's why their fight didn't happen, which is an intriguingly Diaz-esque position to take.

I thought it was injury?

Edit--it was definitely injury. At least when nick says "every fight I lost I fuckin won" it makes sense and it's true. Accusing someone of playing games from a hospital bed using Wile. E. Coyote signs is 🙄

What makes Whittaker so strong in wrestling defence despite being Australian, and, I believe, training in Sydney? I met him maybe 6 years ago and his MT clinch was at best workable, so his improvement is amazes me.

I donít know if this is germane to Whitakerís style, but people without a wrestling background can actually benefit by not having a natural instinct to wrestle. Like if someoneís fighting for hand control or hooks, clamming up and tucking your elbows in can actually shut the offense down. Wrestlers donít do it cause itís stalling, but in mma itís defense.

It really needs to be Weidman vs Branch for the New York title on the line

Thatís actually a really interesting idea that Iíd not considered. Thinking back, even when I shifted from Greco & MT into actual MMA I was really surprised at how well I held up against collegiate wrestlers singles and doubles with no real sprawling practice. Think Whittaker was a pretty good rugby player and made a choice to do MMA instead so some of that likely crosses over.

Remember when UFC hired Todd Grishom for what felt like *checks watch* twelve minutes?

How about WWE hires Michael Schiavello so they get someone equally skilled?

fake edit: according to google grishom works for ufc still, i have literally no idea if this is true or not even on the uk cards i never see him

that's true but i think when kelvin hit weidman it was just with a left as he was backing up with his hands down. i could see jacare throwing one of those light speed right hands and doing the same. i guess we'll find out, it's a better fight than weidman/rockhold imo.
