Thanks for the memories Baby Jay, you will always be remembered as one of the greatest to ever lace up the gloves.
Rough end to the weekend, eh, boys? Damn.
Faber doesn't fight in Frankie's division.
Aldo getting injured really really sucks for the featherweight division. Now Cub has to wait around even longer.
With that said, assuming Mendes just waits til Aldo heals, you have to match Frankie with Dustin next. Cub can just wait for the winner of Mendes/Aldo.
i know he doesnt
hes in the same situation as frankie where he could fight at either weight
dillashaws the champ and mendes is fighting for the belt, hes out of the picture and could fight at either weight
I would like to see Frankie just go down to 35 if anything. As far as Faber switching weights according to who's champ, that could get weird, especially since Aldo would destroy him again and if Mendes wins, he won't fight Mendes anyway. So moving Faber going back up to 45 really makes no sense. He seems open to fighting Dillashaw, said if Dillashaw and the UFC wanted them to fight he'd consider it.
it only doesnt make sense from a rankings perspective which i dont care about, just like i dont care to see this porier vs edgar fight youve proposed
we have no idea when aldo and chad are even going to fight, cub and edgar just fought so a matchup is perfect
cub said he aint gonna beg but hes gonna sit there and wait?
If Faber beats Cub, he faces the same problem he would at 35. He would either get destroyed by Aldo or face Mendes. Featherweight already has enough contenders, so Faber should stay at 35.
If Cub is going to take another fight, it should be with Dustin, who should be ahead of Faber in line. Frankie at this point is behind Cub and Dustin, or at least he should be behind. What has Frankie done to get a fight with Cub before Dustin? What has Faber done to be ahead of Dustin? This is why moving between weights gets messy. Btw, Dustin just fought too in April.
I forgot that Cub already beat Dustin. That in itself is reason enough for him to get the shot vs Cub. Beating BJ really proved nothing though but beating Oliveria before that was impressive. I don't mind that Frankie/Cub fight at all.
Dustin is super young anyway he'll have his chances.
He had the same strategy against Frankie as he did against Rory, Diaz and Frankie the second time they fought: be the opponent's punching bag
It was tough watching him get wrecked by bigger men in Diaz and Rory but at an even lighter weight than when he fought Frankie before, he was never going to be able to keep up with Frankie's footwork. It was seriously depressing to watch that fight.
Yeah they've already started moving some of the other fights to other cards. Green/Trujillo and Formiga/Makovsky were moved to Fight Night 47 and the women's fight was moved to 177.
Didn't really think about it, but the Cerrone v Miller card could be a big night for UFC when it comes to media coverage. With the MLB ASG on 7/15, the World Cup ending on 7/13 there's no other sporting events going on that day. So unless SportsCenter wants to show a bunch of highlights from the ESPYS and summer league games if they have any, UFC should be featured a lot on all of the sports highlight shows.
