    This ^^^

    I liked watching Jones as much as the next fan, I guess, but the guy is such a douche. I've lost interest--fairly or not, milage does vary--in watching him fight. Beyond that, one...
  2. UFC planning event in New York ... interesting story.

    Looks like Zuffa is betting on a favorable ruling.

    Just for fun: if the event goes forward, who...

    This. Palhares has shown his cards too many times now. Jesus, he was still cranking on Shields' arm--not just holding position. Beyond that, those eye gouges were genuine gouges, not...

    It did seem promoted a lot, though I didn't pay particular attention. Gotta give Conor this: he's going to make plenty of money for Zuffa and for himself (which he deserves--as does any other...

    I read somewhere (can't recall at the moment) that with the new deal, the highest compensation for fighters is $40,000.

    I have zero idea how much sponsorship money champions could get before this...

    It's true that Conor does seem pretty unconcerned about shots coming his way. He just maintains that forward pressure, period. He reminded me a bit of Chuck Liddell in that sense. Not in styles, but...

    I'll go with Chad. Just a hunch that his wrestling will be a monkey wrench in Connor's firepower.

    Frankie Edgar would be a great fight for the hardcores. He's quick and tough as nails. But that's probably too big a risk, as Zuffa has spent so much time/money on making Connor a "personality" as...

    Big numbers (apparently) for Bellator

    According to Bellator, the 138 card was a hit.

    I guess that means the Bellator...

    Yes, some of the undercard fights look really good. Pitbull is freaking excellent, and perhaps Chandler can bounce back. His first fight against Alvarez was time-capsule stuff.

    At any rate, let's hope Jacare gets that title shot soon. He's certainly a very worthy contender.

    Exactly right. It's impossible to imagine that Zuffa didn't realize this could happen.

    Interesting story. Yeah, the fight itself will probably be grotesque. But it'll draw good numbers and get sponsors in front of eyeballs.
