What happens if/when Francis finishes him faster than he did with Rozenstruik? JJ pulls a Rousey and goes to work for Vince?

no way his ego could handle that. fans will be merciless. can't just drop all that extra weight and return to old div. would take a lot of time

i still think the reason he asked for so much money was because he was/is treating this as his final fight and wants to be set

he said not too long ago that he averages around 5 mil a fight, guessing that's an exaggeration or including non ufc money. ppv points wouldn't get him there with his buyrates

both accounts are verified and it was posted towards the end of the day

don't see dana as someone who'd go in on a joke with jones if their relationship is still rocky

who said it was a fool's bit?

he has more tape to work off and is touted as the smartest fighter so id also give him equally good odds to make it out alive

they just need to keep news cycle going because both suck at promotion. it will prob happen.

i already mentioned it before but i watched ufc in the royce era then stopped for maaaaany years then one day saw a commercial for rousey-tate 2 and their drama sold me on it. then chris weidman came out to tom petty on the same card

i then went back and watched the rousey/tate tuf season

weird how it went down

welp, i guess they got me. still odd that dana responded

maybe the relationship is trending towards salvageable

we'll see how this thing plays out, as the tomato likes to say

Covington saying he's training as if he's the backup for that upcoming title fight

that guy could probably cut to 155, doesn't seem too big

islam is a good idea but too soon, build him up with 2 more fights with rda being next

beating hooker who just got finished doesn't do much for justin

he's likely also not down to be an alternate for the upcoming title fight, he likes knowing the opponent and having a full camp for said opponent

thompson vs burns @ 264, that's actually a really solid booking, nobody outside of usman seems to want to fight either

Ortega and Volk coaching upcoming TUF

I gave the wrong time on the one championship card, I was going off my cable box guide listing

Main card starts in 17 min, those on the west coast can use tnt app to watch live
