  1. Lawler/Condit scratched, Rousey/Holm now headlining UFC 193 in Australia

    http://mmajunkie.com/2015/08/ronda-rousey-vs-holly-holm-now-headlines-ufc-193-at-australias-etihad-stadium

    Interesting booking decision here. For the show to be "live" in the usual 10pm EST...

    If Arlovski wins, he should be getting the next title shot, no question about it. Fedor wants to fight someone, he can take on the Stipe/Rothwell winner (or Mir if Mir wins).

    Dream fight, I love it. A total tossup....Edgar is great at stuffing takedowns but Mendes is an outstanding wrestler who can take virtually anyone down. Edgar is the better boxer but I could see...

    I agree with Stann, get a Holloway/Oliveira rematch signed as soon as possible provided Oliveira isn't hurt too badly. Holloway has the gall to jump the cage and celebrate after a friggin' injury...

    Unfortunate that Tate was promised a title shot and then had it taken away without warning or cause, but look on the bright side....at least it made Bryan Caraway upset.

    All-female UFC card?

    I posted this in the other thread about the Rousey/Holm fight but figured it deserved a thread of its own. The January 2nd PPV will have Rousey/Holm as a headliner, Joanna J defending the 115-pound...

    Ronda/Holm, Joanna J title defense, Tate/Nunes....hell, by this point the UFC might consider making the ENTIRE main card women's fights. Maybe even the entire card top-to-bottom if it makes...

    How much 'bigger' would Cyborg/Ronda be than Ronda defending against virtually anyone? Are the multiple risks involved in giving Cyborg the shot (her missing weight, a PED failure, her being unable...

    I wouldn't mind a Werdum/Cain rematch if the HW division was in its usual state of disrepair, but there are actually two fresh challengers (Arlovski and Miocic) with legitimate cases for a title shot...

    This might be the only time when the UFC can wring one more decent PPV buyrate out of Bisping. Ironically, they've wanted to run Bisping vs. Anderson for YEARS but it kept falling through...

    I interpreted this as 'who would GSP least want to face in his prime.' As in, Hendricks isn't anything special to GSP, it's just that Johny caught him in literally his last fight when he was...

    Once Cain inevitably pulls out with another injury, the UFC can still book Fedor as the last-minute replacement.

    Oh wow, Roger Huerta. The 'next big thing' of the UFC that even scored MMA's first-ever Sports Illustrated cover. Talk about an answer to a trivia question. He's 2-6 in his last eight MMA fights,...

    Ronda and the UFC are already making millions off of her fights. She and the company don't "need" Cyborg for anything. Rousey is pulling in 900K PPV buys for shows against frickin' Bethe Correia,...

    Agreed. For those arguing that having Cyborg fight someone other than Ronda is leaving money on the table....well, not at all. If a fresh contender beats Cyborg, then suddenly that woman becomes...

    I rate Fedor a lot higher than Garth does, but I think that if Fedor actually did manage to win the UFC title, he would be the absolute hands-down greatest heavyweight of all time. No possible...

    Totally agree with both of these. Let's wait until Brunson actually gets an impressive win before we start treating him like a legit contender. Even with Alvey, the ref made a quick stoppage.

    Dariush maybe, MAYBE won the third round. At best it was a tossup. Johnson clearly won rounds 1 and 2, however, so anything other than decision for him was an utter robbery. This is one of those...

    Ronda made a cameo at last year's Wrestlemania and I guarantee she's involved in next year's show (at Cowboys Stadium) as well. She'll either be in the Rock's corner when he faces Triple H, with a...

    The UFC is inarguably not as hot as it was between 2006-2010, so 800K-900K in this watered-down environment for MMA is basically the equivalent of drawing a 1.5 million PPV show back in the golden...
