    Jon Jones is eligible to return to fighting this summer.

    A rematch with DC is probably what the UFC will do but if Gus beats Tex that's the match I'd rather see, first.

    Rockhold says the UFC asked him to fight Anderson Silva at UFC 212, he accepted, but Silva's camp is "looking at other options."

    Cormier said that he's accepted a fight with Manuwa.

    Some reputable sources saying Woodley/McGregor @ 213. Helwani says no truth.

    I trust Helwani.

    If they can't get him to come back for another fight I could see them giving that to him.

    The reality is the UFC needs Conor. Both the Diaz brothers seem to be done with the fight game for the time being, Ronda is done, GSP still doesn't have a date set.

    DJ just set a record low for UFC on Fox.

    Fertittas cashed out at the right time.

    I don't see this fight happening. This is the UFC's back-up plan. Jones will return late July which is when DC *should* be ready to go again.

    DC will be headlining a UFC Anaheim PPV in late July. The fight is Bones' if he doesn't want a tune up fight. If he does, the fight is Manuwa's.

    Already planning his next bout after he beats GSP, Bisping has called out Robert Whittaker and says, "Fuck Yoel Romero."

    I'm convinced this guy is just going to keep looking for easy fights until all the top contenders lose.

    Rumor has it that UFC is targeting Jon Jones, Nick Diaz, and Cyborg for UFC 214. Guess they've gotta do something big while McGoat is inactive.

    The Diaz Bros. strategy lately is to only look to take the biggest fights. Fight once every couple of years if needs be but take the biggest cash in. For Nick, GSP and Silva, for Nate, just Conor.

    The UFC supposedly wants to book Nate vs. Tony for the interim LW belt. They can't make a bigger fight with Nate than that at the moment, I think.

    Justin Gathje reportedly signs with the UFC. Hopefully things go better for him than they have for Will Brooks.
