    i agree. i think it's a good fight for robbie, because winning against someone so hated, throws you to the front of the line. colby has the champ woodley problem. one loss, and high chance of not getting a shot again. if i was colby i would work on the usman fight, usman would have made money for that too.
    Colby has been trying to get that Usman fight forever, but I think both Dana and Usman don't want it.

    That's a dangerous fight for Covington to take. If he loses, he also loses his title shot with Usman. Risky.

    Not sure where Lawler is, though, after all the injuries and the lay-offs, though the ring-rust should be off.

    I think Colby realized that he's been off for too long to get a direct title shot anymore. Which should be the case. Just like Ferguson.

    And after seeing Lawler against Askren, I say Lawler comes in peak form and lays down a classic whoopin'.

    I think that Colby sells until we all get to really watch him get a shit kicking. Then the interest he gathers will go away. I don't know who actually likes him as a genuine fan, but I do know a lot of people that want to watch him take a beating.

    Exactly. He thinks he's the next McGregor, but as much as McGregor had people tuning in to see him get his ass beat, he had just as many of his own fans tuning in for the win.

    Covington vs. Lawler on August 3rd. Solid fight. I really want Lawler to beat the fuck out of Covington. Lol

    Khabib has a "in the event he fights gsp" clause in his new deal.

    Cejudo moraes is going to be great. Super stoked for this one. Hope cejudo wins. I gained a lot of respect for him on the ultimate fighter season he coached, and love him as a role model. Good man, who works hard, stays humble, and honest



    The line on the schevchenko fight is crazy.

    Good win for Anthony Smith. He'll get another shot at Jon Jones soon I think. He's legit.
    He looked good. Really cemented himself as #2, and proved he did deserve his title shot. I think he is a couple more fights from getting Jones again though.


    Poor manuwa, if you didn't see it. He needs to do something, he is getting knocked out to much, and that kick last night might have broken some of his brain.

    Yoel Romero just won $27M in a lawsuit against a Supplement Company ... Holy Fuck.
    Good for him. 27 million is awesome. The name clearing is important too, I guess.

    Thought Kevin Lee looked good last night, and was winning the fight until he just gassed. I think he needs a camp change. Was fast at 170, looked strong, but got tired.
    Guy has had the same problem for years. Needs someone to get him in shape.... at some point there are no excuses. That Pereira guy is highly entertaining. Hopefully, they give him a few easier fights before throwing him in against the top guys.
