    Got a weird feeling he's going to KO Volkov

    Dana is trying to finalize Romero / Adesanya, he "respects" the fact that is who Adesanya wants to fight since Costa is out.

    Nick was on Ariel's show today and it was a typical Nick interview...incoherent..all over the place... but he did say that he had issues with Jorge wanting to baptize Nate...says thats too far... after the interview, Ariel said that Nick and his team emphasized they want to fight in March/April at Cowboys Stadium vs Jorge.

    Khabib thinks he's fighting Tony in Brooklyn at the beginning of April. He is not planning on fighting in Vegas even if he gets his apology.

    Another money fight for Jorge but at this point Nate is the better fighter than Nick and frankly Nate isn't looking all that great either.

    My issue with Khabib as champ, which is not intended to come off as ignorant or islamophobic or whatever, is I feel he barely fights; and Ramadan takes away a good 3 month stretch of the year for him, the month leading up too, the month of, and the month after. I wish he would fight 3x a year.

    Problem is, we don't know if Nate is the better fighter. Nick is bigger, stronger, and nastier than Nate. Now I know its been forever since his last win and his last fight, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt IF he's serious about it. I still heavily favor Jorge in the fight; but I'm not counting Nick out.

    Chael still ginning up a rematch with Tito, who he tapped out in under a minute so I have no idea what the point of it would be. Tito is just a sore loser.

    Ortega out of his fight with KZ with a partially torn ACL. Expected to be out 2-3 months; Frankie Edgar is the favorite to step in.

    My desire to see Frankie fight is low these days. Shame about Ortega.

    Yeah, Frankie is almost gate keeper status now. Another 2-3 fights, unless they're all wins, its time to hang them up.
