    The major leagues have pensions, or at least 401K's and employer matching. Of course, they have associations, which the UFC does not.

    Gian Villante is moving up.

    The Long Island native will fight in his home state of New York when he takes on Ben Rothwell at UFC 249.

    I see what you did there.

    If Budd loses her only three losses will be to Nunes, Rousey, and Cyborg. Likely the three best women fighters of all time.

    Lightweight contenders Kevin Lee and Charles Oliviera will square off in the UFC on ESPN+ 28 headliner. A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie following an initial Tuesday report from Combate. The person asked to remain anonymous since the UFC hasn’t made an announcement.

    I like it; I think Conor picks him apart.

    Tito Ortiz's win over Alberto del Rio has been overturned but the Texas commission haven't said why just yet.

    Prevailing theories are a failed doping test or that the fight was never a competition. Both would be horrible for Tito.

    If this virus impacts Khabib vs Ferguson for the 6th time can we just go ahead and completely cancel the fight forever?

    Gustafsson is back July 25 at Fight Island. Heavyweight bout vs Werdum. Good comeback fight against someone he should be. Should really prove to see if Gus' head is back into the fight game or if he's halfway checked out. If he struggles vs. Werdum, maybe hang them back up.

    Whittaker vs Till will headline that card.

    Shogun vs Lil Nog III will happen as well. Hopefully that is a retirement fight for both fighters.

    "Fight Island" is apparently Abu Dhabi, UAE.

    Shocker. UFC and WWE still on that despotic oil money dole.

    UFC 251 is stacking up nicely

    Usman v. TBD (likely Burns...possibly Edwards)
    Volkanovski v. Holloway (don't like this rematch, should be Korean Zombie)
    Yan vs. Aldo
    Rose v. Andrade
    Volkan v. Some Rizin' guy with crazy KO power
