    War Condit! This is might be his first real chance at a win since 2015.

    I have pretty low expectations for him these days but you're right.

    Nate Diaz is trying to talk his way into his fight with Poirier being for a 165lbs title.

    65-75 is the most natural split the UFC could do with what they have since it only changes one existing division.

    DFW ain't having it at the moment.

    Gus vs. Yoel for MSG is a possibility.

    Apparently the National Labor Review Board rejected Leslie Smith's complaint saying she was retaliated against for her efforts to unionize in the UFC. Article The MMAjunkie article I'm reading does not appear to say why or how the NLRB reached that conclusion.

    It's a banger. On any given night Rory is one of the very best and he is putting himself in a terrible spot against an equally talented, bigger fighter.

    Jon Jones wants PPV points to fight Gus and negotiations for that fight have stalled.

    In other JJ news, he recently instagrammed a response to GSP saying that PEDs didn't throw punches and kicks for him. Smart guy.

    This is already off. The UFC tried to push this fight up to November without clearing that with JJ. She didn't want to cut her camp short so they are giving the fight to Sijara Eubanks instead.

    Who da fook is dat?

    If how they are treating JJ is not enough to show how little the UFC thinks of it's "private contractors" I do not know what will. She has been a company dude her entire time with it and then just gets screwed the first time she needs some time to train. And rightfully so she needs the time, Shevchencko on a short camp is almost asking to lose.

    Lewis looked terrible this weekend. Now they have him turning around in a month? He's got no chance!

    I didn't want JJ vs. DC again. This is the best LHW fight they could make. But I still have a bad reaction to him coming back to fight for a title right away. Seems unsportsmanlike.

    Poirier injured. Out against Diaz. Diaz being pulled from card. Biggest bummer of the year for me. I was most looking forward to this fight.
