Never fought a fight in his life yet he talks **** to all these guys, telling Rockhold to stick to modeling and what not. He's bad for the sport, in my eyes.
    I don't think he's bad for the sport, I think his experience is keeping the sport afloat right now. That being said, there's a reason that the Fertittas removed him from any form of PR before they sold the company. He runs his mouth and ****es the fighters, that have built the sport whilst making peanuts, off. The fact that GSP got the title shot was a joke and contrary to what people who should know better think, I highly doubt that the fight is off. Romero should get the title shot with Rockhold facing off against Jacare and Mousasi fighting Whittaker.

    He's become an absolute joke. I used to like him a lot, I was thrilled when he became champion. I've now lost a lot of respect for him and will be rooting against him regardless of who he faces next. Romero would absolutely maul him though it wouldn't even be funny.

    I just don't think it reflects well when the face of the company is constantly involved in bitter spats with fighters. He shouldn't be getting involved in that nonsense at all, but he's as much an attention seeker as any fighter. They earn it though.

    No chance the GSP fight will be off, there's too much money to be made from it. Bisping will feing injury and I'm guessing they'll fight around October.

    No I agree with your sentiment on Dana. I think he should stick to what he's good at and be removed from PR immediately. The new owners have absolutely no clue about anything though so I expect to still be seeing Dana on his PR tour.

    Yeah. I was never a massive fan but I was happy he won the title, but any goodwill I had for him is now gone. I won't begrudge him the Henderson rematch as it's obviously his most famous loss and one he wanted to avenge, but even then it was still a joke of a title fight (which I think he lost). It's now been 8 months since that fight, and he doesn't look like fighting again any time soon. Any of the top 5 or 6 guys would chew him up, so it's blatantly obvious what he's doing, hanging on for as long as possible and the biggest pay day.

    Looks like the TJ - Garbrandt fight is off now too. I'm getting really bored of this now.

    If they replace that fight with DJ vs TJ then I'd be extremely happy. DJ has come out and refused the challenge though as according to him TJ "doesn't deserve it". Blatantly obvious what DJ is doing too. It's easy to clear a division out when the competitors lack power (usually) and are clearly on a level below the fighters in all of the other divisions.

    Yeah, I'd be happy with that fight too, but it won't happen. DJ will hang around that division beating the same people, and fighters clearly not good enough to be in title fights until he breaks the record then he might move up. As good as DJ clearly is, that division is a mess right now, not very interesting at all.

    I don't think that he moves up at all. I also think that if he were to move up, he'd get beat soon after.

    Dana talking up the possibility of Romero - Whittaker for an interim title. What a joke. Just make Bisping fight the actual contenders, for **** sake. McGregor too. This **** is getting boring now.

    Oh, and Rory looked good, although Daley is one of the most one dimensional fighters around. Nice to see Rory back to winning ways.

    Yeah I don't get the logic of that one because by that logic Bisping will have to face the winner of the interim fight next when in reality he's facing GSP so I don't understand that. In other words, you're going to have a champion and an interim champion but they aren't going to face each other for a while? Weird.

    I love Rory so I too was happy to see him back. Never liked Daley so I found it funny how he called Rory a quitter then was made to tap out McGeary losing was surprising and the Congo fight was absolutely and utterly atrocious, fast forwarded through most of it.

    So much for GSP not getting the fight and Bisping fighting Romero next, eh? Dana talks so much ****, seriously. Yeah, we're going to have 2 active champions in the same division, what is the point?

    I only watched the Rory fight, no time for most of their fights tbh. Amazing to think Rory has comfortable wins over Woodley and Maia and they still let him go so easily.

    The problem here is that Bisping has never really headlined big PPV events. So fighting GSP is actually his chance to make some serious paper - so I don't really hold it against him holding out for that fight. He's been through the mill and fought nearly everybody, why risk the payday (one of last in career) by fighting Romero?

    I love DJ, technically amazing and fightIQ is ridiculous but he's just too small to step up. Cruz literally man-handled him and it was like boy v man.

    Because he's the divisions champion and as such has a responsibility to fight contenders. He's already been done a favour in his time as champion when the UFC gave him a 45 year old Henderson, a fight he nearly lost. His antics are literally pathetic now and I'm tired of them. Bashes GSP for not being able to fight in July and when that fight was called off and he was told to face Romero in July he's all of a sudden injured. It's ridiculous.
