This fight pass, is this like a ufc channel? Where anything ufc-related is played 24/7? If it is I hope they play every ufc event starting from ufc 1.

I think we don't have that in our country. Every ufc event is free here anyway.

Fight Pass is an online subscription service. On it they show old footage from the beginning of UFC, WEC, Pride, Strikeforce, EliteXC and Affliction. It also shows the pre-prelim fights that use to be on Facebook and they have "exclusive" events that won't be shown in the US on tv. Which are basically those small international cards that have fighters most don't know. And in the future they're gonna start showing international versions of TUF on fight pass exclusively. For instance TUF Brazil will show on tv in Brazil but then it'll show on fight pass for international viewers. I think its available to international viewers too.

 

From what I've heard from people that have signed up for it, its a waste and not worth the money now.

Honestly what is Dana's issue with Cyborg? With Cyborg saying that she's gonna try to make it to 135 lbs, a lot of people were happy that they could finally see her vs Rousey. You figured Dana would be happy but then he started giving all of these excuses and making all of these hurdles for Cyborg to jump over before she even got a chance. Now he's straight up saying no.

 

Quote:
 “No. The Cyborg thing, I can’t believe people are asking me about Cyborg, number one. First of all, she does not fight here. Everybody realizes that, right? See weighs 145 pounds and her genius manager, Tito Ortiz, said that she would die if she went to 135 pounds. She’s also coming off a steroid suspension last time she was here. I can’t even, it drives me nuts. She will not fight Cyborg. I don’t know who she’s going to fight. She’s going to go film ‘Entourage,’ the movie, and then we will figure out what’s next for her.”

 

If Cyborg served her suspension, why is it even an issue? And does Rousey even have a huge part in the Entourage movie like he and UFC have been trying to portray? I just figured she had a cameo like a bunch of other athletes do and its a one day thing. Or maybe she's playing Drama's muscular girlfriend.

Like Marquart and Reem didn't have roid suspensions...
post #1626 of 41029
I doubt Dana was a fan of Tito being Cyborg's manager. Just seemed like more trouble than it was worth when Mr. Jameson was running things for her.

And on Fight Pass... I've booted it up once in four weeks to watch an old BJ Penn fight, other than that, I see no reason to pay for it once the trial is up.

But Cyborg dropped Tito as her manager and she's trying to drop to 135 lbs. Those were the problems Dana had with her before. Now its because they have other fighters in line to fight Rousey and her failed drug test before.

There goes Vitor ever fighting in vegas
post #1630 of 41029
And didn't sonnen get a title shot after his roid suspension?
post #1631 of 41029

Now that Vegas banned TRT, Dana says that UFC will no longer accept TRT. I have a hard time believing this. Everyone focuses on Belfort but what about Hendo, Sonnen, Mir, etc? And what happens to a guy like Big Foot who medically needs it? 

post #1632 of 41029
Sonnen says he medically 'needs' it, too. People focus on Vitor because he has a positive steroid test. Guys like Mir and Hendo do not.

Landmark day for the sport, really. Props to Nevada.

The dudes that been on it for a while need it now because their bodies have probably shut down natural production. mean.giflaugh.gif

I feel sorry for one of these dudes. The UFC needs to ban the practice outright
post #1634 of 41029

UFC said that they're banning it outright. Even if the commission in another state or country allows it, their fighters aren't going to be allowed to do it. The real test is gonna be when Hendo fights in Brazil in a few weeks. The commission down their said he applied for an exemption and will get it more than likely. So who knows if UFC will step in and say no.

post #1635 of 41029
Why do I have this feeling that the the ufc will only be more strict or will ban trt now but just get a little lenient in the future.

Somewhere in the world I can imagine weidman or maybe gsp with a sigh of relief. Machida or jacare better prepare in case vitor will fail a test or withdraws from his fight with weidman.

Btw, thanks @PhillyzPhan for that answer about fight pass. A real waste of money.
post #1636 of 41029
BIG announcement AT 1:15 et on FS1 according to Dana White. Rumors are swirling that Vitor may be out of his fight against Weidman. He prolly pissed hot from that random drug test.

Didn't machida injure his foot? Any news on that? He should start training by late-march so there is still a lot of time for that foot to heal.


Still hoping for belfort vs weidman.

Was gonna have a more detail prediction about Dana freaking out on Belfort firing him or maybe claiming a fake injury but tried to get it posted before they revealed it. Didn't think they'd lead the show off with Raptors vs Wizards highlights.

Don't know much about TRT but Vitor said he's gonna continue fighting without it. But said he stopped taking it now and fought Weidman, would it still be in his system and detectable in a drug test?

post #1647 of 41029
YES! YES! YES!

Hope Machida kills Weidman.

WOW, bomb-shell.


Man, I mean hey, I ain't eem mad.


This is a tougher matchup for Weidman. Machida's take down defense is some of the best in the business.


If he can successfully keep this fight standing he can definitely win this fight. I don't think he'll be able to completely nullify Weidman's takedowns, but he doesn't need to. Weidman needs to be wary of Machida's counter-striking.
post #1649 of 41029
More interesting fight and less controversy, if you ask me. Win, win.

War Weidman.

I thought @jcmojica24's post was a prediction. Wow. Machida vs weidman. Let's see if weidman can check head kicks that is almost at the speed of sound.

Did vitor made a statement or announcement about what he's going to do now?
