    Nick says he's returning at UFC 246. I doubt it's more than a paycheque for him and we probably won't see him fight again, at least for an extended stretch.

    Man, I saw it on Twitter, but I am not able to find it again.

    Seems like too quick of a fight for him. Everything I've seen has him linked to March-April-May. I'd be shocked if he's in any sort of fight shape by January.

    Seems like a going backwards fight for Ngannou, high risk low reward. Should KO him though.

    I guess it is either take a fight or sit around and wait for the HW belt to get active. Kind of a crappy situation for Ngannou, but if he wants or needs the money it's what has to happen apparently.

    Good knee, but ref should have already stopped that. Dude was having to use the cage to stand up.

    Rory MacDonald has left Bellator and signed with PFL.

    Kinda seems like he's washed...

    Masvidal's manager is openly turning down a fight with Usman; stating that the fight wasn't exciting and Usman isn't a big name. Maybe after Usman and Edwards fight, then Mas will want a title shot because the name will be bigger.

    If the UFC doesn't think the belts are legit than the BMF is as good as the rest.

    Bobby Knuckles returning at UFC 248 against Jarod Cannonier. I'd like to see Whittaker win, but I'm worried about the guy.

    He's a hitter but Bob should run circles around him.

    CCC has relinquished his flyweight belt. Joe Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo to fight for it on the leap year card.

    No double champ has been able to maintain both belts yet. Nunes might.

    Jack Tunney was right all along.

    Melvin Guillard will be fighting for the Lights Out Championship promotion against Erick Lozano. Winless in his last ten fights Melvin will try to avoid making it 11 straight.

    How much must it suck to need to keep fighting to support yourself well after you are a beaten and broken athlete...

    A guy like Guillard who fought for the UFC twenty times in his career should be getting something to get taken care of by the company. I can see maybe not wanting to give a guy who spent three fights with the company much of anything, but Guillard crushed his body with the UFC for almost a full decade.
