Like Elite XC betting the house on Kimbo? Lol. That was a terrible vehicle to hedge their bets on, especially because he was a street fighter.

The fix has to be in. No way they'd sick a very competent wrestler against their golden child. But then again, we did get Brock running away to the WWE, the HW title on a 37-year old Werdum, the LW on RDJ...

If the injury was legit, then how exactly was he going to cut for the fight with Connor...much less fight?

Challenges making weight and actually NOT making weight are 2 different things though.

Obviously the IV situation would change all that.

But Barao missing weight isn't a factor here. Aldo never fainted and pulled out of a title fight like 2 days before because of a weight cut.

Aldo saying fracture. UFC saying bruise. I don't know who to believe but Dana gon' Dana.

This weigh in is insane. Looks like pac may weigh in
post #10264 of 34109
Holy **** at the number of people at weigh ins. Unprecedented at a MMA event,

Conor has taken over the sport.

Hyped.

Reebok tops are trash, but the fight shorts and sweats were pretty clean looking. Going to be nice not to see logos all over place, though it was a great drinking game

From my perspective, Conor walked by Faber and tapped him on the head. Both guys laughed then Faber put his hands around his stomach and probably made a comment about his weight. Conor didn't like that and they kind of grabbed each other and then it was broken up quick. Started off as playful then turned quick. Faber looked at the camera and laughed as he walked off

The challenge is Aldo, who has a history of having a tough time making weight, would have a hard time cutting with bruised or broken ribs. Hard to move around with that kind of injury. Hard to run. Hard to ride the bike. Hard to move around. Hard to spar.

And there's a video floating around of the altercation. It definitely looks like a work based on how playful they were being.

The weigh ins were more WWE drama. Connor trying to get things popping off. I liked the stare down between Robbie/Rory. I can't wait for that fight.
post #10273 of 34109
It went from playful to serious quickly with faber. U could tell the look on his face changed when it was being broken up.

Side note robbie putting his chin on Rory hand then knocking it away lol he's showing he can do whatever he wants

This reebok deal has to be the ****tiest thing to happen in the UFC lol. Brought a whole level of cornball and ugly to the UFC
post #10275 of 34109
The deal isn't bad per say. Nike supplies NFL and soon NBA. Reebok has NHL. Majestic has MLB.

The issue is the fighter/sponsor relationship. For those with a hard hustle or recognizable name, they can make significant money on the side. This "deal" changes that. It's obviously a work in progress. It's not any different than the Fox Sports deal which IMO hurt the UFC in the U.S.

Not everyone can be Rhonda Rhousey and star in movies, be a premium Reebok athlete,appear in ESPN skin issues or show up in the WWE.

exactly, mma brands gave fighters opportunity. But like you said, this is the big leagues so only the best will flourish

Faber pinned young chap up against the wall, conor ain't want it with the alpha 

 

post #10278 of 34109
That irish fella is such a lame. Someone jokes around back at him and he can't handle it. faber should've dropped him on his head in front of his girl.
post #10279 of 34109
I kinda wish his opponent was diaz because he'd punch him if he tried that crap outside the cage.

Diaz wants none of that. He's washed

I think he owns a small portion of it. The Fertittas own 80 something percent, some company owned by the Abu Dhabi government own 10%, and Dana owns the other 9%.
