    I've written this before, but Mighty Mouse has had some tough luck when it comes to headlining PPV cards. The UFC knows he isn't a draw and thus always tries to pair his title defenses with a...

    I find it very hard to believe that the UFC has rigged fights. So much money has been left on the table over the years with big-time fights falling through since the wrong guy won or lost at the...

    Very true. In a way, this is almost a no-win situation for Fedor. Beating anyone in Bellator's weak division doesn't help his legacy, whereas losing to someone like Kimbo would be a huge negative.

    It's high time Thompson gets another good opponent. The only in-his-prime notable guy he's ever fought was Matt Brown and he dropped that one, so let's see if he's for real.

    McGregor isn't a bigger draw than Ronda, but he is quickly becoming one of (if not the) biggest draw amongst the male fighters. I heard a ton of buzz about this PPV from my 'casual MMA fan' friends...

    I must've somehow missed all of these Frankie Edgar knockout losses, how has his chin been 'cracked'? But I agree, Edgar vs. McGregor would be a great fight.

    Anyone who calls Rory a "quitter" after that fight is being an idiot. He was standing toe-to-toe with Lawler for four rounds and gave everything he had....his power meter just hit zero.

    No way Mendes took a dive. Come on, be serious.

    He had a two-week training camp and apparently broke his rib within the first couple minutes of the fight....no wonder he ran out of gas early.

    I think the thread's pretty accurate. Seery and Pendred both lost, so Irish fighters were a mediocre 1-2 on UFC 189. Clearly a grim day in Ireland's MMA history. :)

    I'd imagine Al will still get his full paycheque and probably Giblert's share as well for the inconvenience.

    Damn. No word on if Giblert Hernandez is still able to fight in his place.

    It seems like Ronda's opinion is definitely influenced by her own bad experience in having a sponsor rip her off. From that perspective, I can see see why she'd be in favour of it, though obviously...

    Poor Demetrious keeps getting booked on these injury-riddled cards. The UFC has wisely put him as a co-main event on his last few PPVs since they know he can't draw as a headliner.....except then...

    He'd probably be more appreciated if he'd actually won a fight since February 2012. Those paycheques get smaller and smaller the more times you look up at the lights.
