    Can't really blame these guys. The UFC seems out to screw the fighters whenever they think they can get away with it. The old narrative of guys owing the UFC or the fans anything is dead.

    Which isn't to say they should do a Nicco Montano and just never fight but the pressure tactics should fall on deaf ears.

    I would love to see Poirier get his rematch eventually.

    Surprise of the century, Leslie Smith has filed a grievance with the National Labor Relations Board against Zuffa and the UFC for unfair labor practices following the UFC deciding not to keep her.

    Also, there is a lot of people wanting various Diaz fights to happen. I have seen Eddie Alvarez, Conor again, Kevin Lee. Not once have I seen Poirier which is the one I most want to see. I think their skills would mesh for an entertaining fight whether it hits the ground or stays on the feet.

    Diaz vs. Poirier would be great but Nate doesn't want to fight anyone unless it is a major payday.

    GSP would just pummel Nate into the mat, and then Nate would turn around and whine that he got too much sleep prior to the fight or GSP did not really fight him. Seems like something we may have watched before.

    I read a theory that it could be a precursor to setting up GSP / Conor.

    We've gone from freak show fights to sport and now we're headed back to freak show fights again. Lesnar getting the winner of DC/Miocic is the climax.

    Rockhold vs. Gustafsson being planned.

    Not the strangest fight since Luke is a big guy but still reads a little odd.

    Gus is the worst nightmare for Rockhold. Rockhold gets flustered and just back pedals into the fence. Gus will eat him alive.

    Poirier says the deadline was missed and the fight with Alvarez is not signed.


    Michael Bisping is "retired."

    Helwani says its official

    I think Dustin probably got word of Eddie's new contract and wants more himself and is trying to hard ball.

    Liddell has announced he's coming out of retirement and looking to fight Tito in the last quarter of 2018. He wants Oscar De La Hoya to promote. Bellator is probably creaming their pants.
