At this point I'd be hesitant to make any travel arrangements based on what main event is supposed to be happening..

Oh yeah it's way too early to make solid plans, but if its Whittaker for the belt I will be strongly considering it.

Even if it's confirmed their recent string of lineup changes would make me hesitant :(

If there was a change to the main event, it would more likely be GSP or Bisping rather than Whittaker. He fought his last fight with a bad knee after all. Even if it wasn't Bobby Knuckles for the belt it would still likely be him defending his interim belt :)

If that wasn't the best UFC ever, its in the top 3. Amazing card.
Except TJ winning, he's an annoying little cunt

But holy shit, if Perth is GSP vs Whittaker I am DEFINITELY going. I suspect GSP won't be ready to fight again by then though and will want to take his time.

The only fight on that card that wasn't spectacular was the Thompson fight, he's interesting but he's not exciting to watch

One fight like that on a card is fine by me, I find him technically interesting enough that even his non-exciting fights are fun to watch. A whole card of fights like that get dull.

The funny thing is that TJ, Joanna and GSP are all known to go to decision a lot, I was half expecting we would get 3 5-round decision championship fights. Yet none of them were! GSP was fighting like the GSP before he won the title. He got a bit safe and gun-shy when he got the belt IMO.

And Rose... oh my god. She's 25, is small for the division, yet has finishes by punches, kicks and freaking flying arm bars. She's amazing.

Yeah I was super impressed by Rose to be honest, she punches above her weight! Overall it was a bloody fantastic card

Never used fight pass but apparently it had a cyrpto miner hidden in it that seems to have been removed now, I highly doubt it was done by the UFC, more likely someone working in the fightpass programing side of things who had recently watched Office Space, I wouldn't like to be the guy having to explain to Dana White what happened, or what crypto currency is or how computers work...

Not going to lie - would watch it, but surely everyone would just look to take him to the ground - is he really going to be able to play catch up on those guys that have been doing it for a decade or more?

In other news, I'm excited about UFC 223 for the Namajunas v Jedrzejczyk rematch next month :D

He's working with Tyrone Woodley on his wrestling apparently, maybe with his speed and movement he'd do better than people expect?

Joanna vs Rose is a great fight but looking forward more to Ferguson vs Nurmagomedov :thumbup:

If Conor doesn't do jail time for his latest stunt.... what a fuck up. He makes Jon Jones look good.

All because after zero title defences (ever), and over 500 days of not fighting in the Octagon they're finally taking his belt off him and putting it back into the division. Rightfully so IMO.

I get why he doesn't want to fight, another victory is nothing to him, but a loss is huge - he's got no-where to climb to and a long way to fall.. but this sort of gypsy bullshit is disgusting to the sport. I like McGregor, but to be honest after this he should probably be banned from UFC for a period of time. They've bent to his whim for far too long and the division has suffered.

I thought the correct progression would have been for the winner on the weekend, would fight the #1 contender, and then probably fight McGregor, but now who knows.

For those who missed the story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/ear ... hite-says/
Two uninvolved fighters from the card were injured and thus ruled out and a third was punted for being involved in the raid. I'm sure he makes good money for them when he fights but if he's going to behave like that he's probably not worth it?

And yeah, dude should be in jail for that. The guys injured by him and his gang of thugs should sue, missing that fight and having to wait for another shot could seriously impact their careers. Dana will hopefully look out for them and get them another fight ASAP though.

He's either getting a lifetime ban or this was all a setup for a Mayweather MMA fight for another hunned mil each.

If it was a setup it was a pretty fucking dumb one. They have turned one of the best cards of the year into a very average one.
