Askren/Alvarez, while a size mismatch, would at least be a fun fight, though?

Probably he's going to pointlessly fight Aoki and whoever though.

ONE just gave him the best offer/not as good competition, both coker and white were interested. He's a dirty fighter and probably only has 3 fights left anyway

dana recently softened on signing askren, usually when asked he'd say something like most ufc fans don't know who he is but the last time he was asked he said askren called him but that he can't do anything since he's under contract, he said he'd sit down with him when he becomes a free agent

Cormier shouldn't be fighting with a bad hand, not sure how that's being allowed, says he can't make a closed fist with all his fingers, might get even worse in camp and they'll need to find another main

Rockhold is out of the Weidman fight.

The most interesting fight to make would have been Cormier/Weidman for the LHW, come to think of it.

They're trying to get together Weidman/Jacare instead.

#230IsDoomed

If Cormier ends up also being out, they may have to cancel it

185 is a murderer's row. I guess Jacare is taking the fight, but damn I almost just want to see Weidman get an easy fight.

i mean askren in the ufc is long overdue and i'm excited to see the matchups, but they're willing to sacrifice the person who's been promoted as the GOAT? maybe they're folding flyweight div...

tj seems pretty adamant about the cejudo fight happening at 125, doubt he'd defend the belt it if he won. and if dj leaves, 25 will be pretty much done

ONE is being difficult and also asking for a couple of 2nd round draft picks

get in there, Coker

Dropping 125, and trading the component pieces for different folks would be... unexpected but interesting?

askren's already being annoying af, hope they do give him that Till fight and he gets dropped

dj won a lot of fans over in his last 2 fights and he could have been a solid ongoing co-main eventer. ufc didn't deserve him

Coker should put in a good effort to land Stephen Thompson, guy could be a top 4 draw in Bellator. UFC doesn't know what to do with him since they don't want to book another Woodley fight. Askren now being there doesn't help matters either as he'll probably get a jump at a title shot should TWood lose to someone

The trade is apparently completed.

Frankie Edgar is out of the Korean Zombie fight and has been replaced by Yair, which is still a fun af fight (but a bit less of a draw, I think)

Alvarez said ONE gave him an eight figure contract :lol:

Be nice if that's actually true and DJ also got some sweet loot

Wow, wasn't looking too good for Smith there for a second, glad he pulled it out. Probably the most tired I've seen a postfight winner. Enjoyed his interview too, he's probably gonna have to win another before they entertain giving him a title shot though.

Smith vs Latifi, Blachovich or Reyes are all makeable fights that could get him there (but I'd favor the other guy in all of them)

You may be right, pretty stacked div but Smith seems to have luck on his side

Demetrious' agent says DJ's deal is even better than Alvarez's. :D

Saw a couple of GSP-Khabib in the works headlines today but I think it might just have been from Cormier saying they should fight.

Askren is very Tim Kennedy-esque in how excited I am to see him get KO'd for his dogshit personality and political views. Just hope it doesn't come at the hands of Colby Covington. I mean, even on that front, the pro wrestling-style MAGA heel act is way better than genuine faux intellectual Jordan Peterson bullshit.

hard agreeee... i can't understand how askren gets touted by the media as some sort of superb trash talker. his "zingers" are even more flaccid than his channel-turning fighting style. i'd like to see wonderboy style on him.
