    Sounds like Burns.

    Yan/Aldo could be amazing. Yan going for the legend killer gimmick.

    Khabib's father has woken up and been somewhat responsive, minor improvement.

    Per Khabib's manager, Khabib seems more motivated than ever. He's already begun camp for Gaethje and is working out twice a day.

    ONE just announced they had several new investors and were debt-free.

    In unrelated news...

    A few prevailing theories-

    They are lying
    They are laundering mainland money and actually don't have liquid assets, just a pile of money they can't spend
    All of the above

    But to brag about how well they are doing while laying-off 20% (reportedly higher) of their staff is very American Corporation of them.

    If good Uriah and good Yoel show up, this fight is a banger, but that's one permutation of a possible four.

    I don't expect Hall's chin to last very long...but again; that is if Yoel shows up.

    Rough night for POS Aleksander Emelianenko, fresh off his 4.5-year stint for rape, torture, and kidnapping.

    ^ My bad, he was let out in 2016 after serving 17 months of the 54-month sentence.

    Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva will return against LFA Champion Brett Martin at Taura MMA 11 in October. Currently 0 for his last 5 in MMA, with 4 of those coming by knockout, Bigfoot Silva will look to avoid 6 straight losses.

    I believe being a black belt means being able to instruct. Bigfoot is a triple black belt and should be doing that as a career, not fighting. He went from a record of 16-2 when he thumped Fedor in 2011 to 19-12 in 2020, with nine knockout losses in his last 13 fights. He's shot and must be still in it for the quick money.
