Haha, well she's been "sick" from her last weight cut. So she claims she couldn't make weight unless she had 8 weeks to train. I don't know if you've heard, but Cyborg got flagged by USADA for a possible violation. She claims it was a substance that helped her body recover from the weight cut. So she may be suspended for a year or more anyway...

 

I have a real difficult time Cyborg is ducking fights. I mean, look at her history. What would she be scared of? Holly freakin Holm? Who initially turned down a non title fight with Cyborg at 145 lbs

Word. I've only heard the story from Dana, so I'm not sure what the truth is but he said he's given her 2 opportunities to fight at 145 and she turned down both. Made it sound like she was ducking for reasons other than the weight cut. Not fear of any of the fighters, but probably a substance violation. He also mentioned Holly turning down a fight, but he said she wanted the fight but her coaches or someone in her camp said it wouldn't be a good idea for her to fight cyborg at that time.

Highlights from Ariel's show today:

 

-Thug Rose wants Waterson next

-Went through issues with Pat Berry (who did not corner her for her last fight) but they're good to go now and will corner her for her next fight

 

-Yair Rodriguez went off LOL.. some quotes:

 

"I can wrestle I can strike and I don't give a F-word. I was born a fighter..."

 

On Izzy Martinez: "He tried to do too much, tried to be my father. I complained that he was being a little crazy.. His wrestling isn't as I thought..."

 

On people criticizing him for being too flashy in his last fight against Caceras: "People will criticize you if you win. People will criticize you if you lose. So F-word people. I'll do whatever the F-word I want in the cage. It's my career"

 

-Going into UFC 188, Yair only had $400 in his bank account

 

-TJ claims that Cody was the first person to reach out to Leister Bowling on how to get out to Denver

-TJ says that if he doesn't get the Cody fight, that he wants to fight once a month in all weight classes

Yeah, anything Dana says you have to take with a grain of salt. He says some true things and then mixes some crazy things in for certain reactions

 

He knows a lot of what he says is untrue and b.s. but he's doing it for particular reasons. After all, his job is to promote, so he has his motives

To this day I still think Gus won

No way, Bones won a decisive three rounds. It was close but he took over in the 5th.

Welp now we need to hear if khabib and Ferguson are fighting each other on the same card

Maia may never get get his shot, would be a bummer

Unless Cowboy puts Masdival's lights out, I don't see why Maia wouldn't get the shot next

I wouldn't be surprised at all if cowboy, conor or nick Diaz got the next shot

Then there's always the threat of medical suspensions

Maia is 39 and I'm assuming the soonest he'd get a chance at the title would be late summer. He'd go a full calendar year without a fight which also sucks since he was on such a roll

Oh, and of course there's GSP lurking when the UFC is in dire need of money fights
post #36104 of 36492
nick diaz aint getting an immediate title shot, I don't think he's won a fight in over 2 years.

He gonna have to get a solid W first then I expect a TS for him

he turned down lawler recently

Who knows with Dana, I don't trust this fool at all. Nick turned down the fight because he probably wants more money or a title shot

I do wonder if nick wants to fight at 170 or 185 though

Yair is probably going to kill baby j in there :{

post #36108 of 36492
Yea I don't give BJ much chance either, just hope he does better than last time and doesn't tap dance again lol. That was so strange.

UFC 209 looking lit, hope the khabib ferg match is really happening.

dana already said nahhh he cant just throw nick directly into a title fight, he said he wants to, it makes money....but its true the MMA community would flip out, especially everyone at 70 he leap frogs after 2 years on the couch.

Nick need that tune up first, got a gang of rust i bet

he's well deserving, he just need to get back in there, generate some hype and snowball it into a draw, with him it would only take 1 fight.

He said no to robbie, Im not sure when he comes back....he's obviously in no rush to fight, he's not hurt for money so its not like he's fighting to make ends meat

I dont really see him taking ANY fights for a while to be honest. Might see him once this year would be surprised if we see him twice.

I dig it tho, he calling his shots. Its been a long run.

Ha. Like he cares about what the mma community thinks. If anyone speaks up he'd fire them or ban media from ufc events.

Exactly. Dana does what he wants and he NEEDS money fights for 2017. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he gave Nick a shot

 

Besides Nick, there's GSP lurking. There's Conor lurking. There's Cowboy lurking. Maia might be stuck, I hope not. Show some heart, Dana

The UFC has canceled its second show of 2017.

A scheduled March 3 event in Las Vegas has been scrapped, according to the promotion. No specific reason for the decision was announced. The event, which did not have any fights attached to it yet, was slated to air on UFC Fight Pass the night before UFC 209.

Late last year, the UFC scrapped a Jan. 21 event in Anaheim, Calif., as well. The event, UFC 208, was moved to Brooklyn, NY on Feb. 11.
post #36115 of 36492
Crazy that they scrapped Jan 21 and 208 card is STILL weak as ****.
