    Some news from a couple of interviews today...

    -According to BJPenn.com, Nick Diaz has been offered a fight against Khamzat Chimaev. Ariel Helwani reported that Nick and Dana's Saturday night meeting went very well. Nick is expected back this year. Nick wanted to return last year but the pandemic threw everything off.

    -Jorge Masvidal contemplated retirement for about 5 minutes; wants to return later this year. Hoping to get in maybe 2 fights this year. Not considering retirement anymore

    -Khamzat is open to fighting Nick. Says once Ramadan is over, he will gear his training up to 100% and wants to return in early August.

    -Weidman can walk again in 8 weeks and resume training in 6-12 months depending on how rehab goes. He is determined to make a comeback in the UFC

    -Usman and his team are not set on Colby as his next opponent. Usman wants to see how Nate/Leon and Wonderboy/Burns plays out. Abdelaziz knows that the UFC wants Colby and will try to leverage it ($$$) for Usman.

    and perhaps the biggest news of the day...

    Jon Jones has separated for the Kawa brothers and 1st round management. Rumor is they were negotiating with the UFC behind his back and asked Dana for $30 million dollars.

    Nick Diaz is 37-years old and hasn't fought in six+ years. He hasn't won a fight in ten. This is how boxing builds up their fighters. Not sure why we need this method in the UFC. I like watching Nick fight but this is way above his current level and will be a gong show.

    Lots of interesting fights left for Masvidal who's only a year younger than Nick but has been active. I imagine he'll be in the same mode, sitting on the sidelines waiting for a big payday.

    Chris Weidman has lost 6-of-8, all six by KO/TKO. His spirit is indominable but his coaches need to consider his long-term health.

    Usman should not be in a rush to rematch Covington so I agree with that. The only interesting opponent for him right now is Leon Edwards.

    Malki, Dana, Jon-- I'm not sure how to parse this situation. They are all known liars. Jones is squandering his prime years. Never should have given up his belt!

    Usman vs Chiesa in the works. Usman’s team met and decided they want to fight whoever has the longest winning streak at WW outside of Usman. Usman’s camp wants the bout finalized as the co-main event for June’s PPV 263. Headliner is Izzy / Vettori.

    Usman should dominate him. I respect that Usman wants to stay busy. I don’t mind Chiesa getting the fight as long as Wonderboy, Leon, or Colby is next.

    Fabia is firing off big time damaging shots towards Diego Sanchez now. These two had to be dating right? Diego and Fabia are going through an ugly break up like former lovers.

    Fabia is really shameless. Glad to be done with this fool.

    Sanchez is living proof that life is hard when you are dumb.

    My fear is there is just enough mma blogs and "media" on the internet that Fabia will keep getting what he wants out about Diego and Sanchez has no clue how to defend himself in this avenue. As long as the site gets enough hits there will be people to keep publishing what this guy has to say.

    Sanchez for sure cannot win a war of words with anyone.

    With that being said, it might not matter, as everyone sees through Fabia immediately. Reddit is burying him.

    Jon Jones is making some noise on social media about a groundbreaking thing he will be doing. Starting to seem like his fighting days are over.

    Jones will never fight again. He entertains the idea to stay relevant

    Holland at AKA with DC. He needs to be there for a couple of years minimum if he wants to improve.

    Should add that Diego's current problems wouldn't have occurred if Jackson-Wink hadn't cynically locked him out. Absolute frontrunners, those guys. Fuck them.

    Chances of Yair winning the fight are higher than the chances of Yair actually making it to the fight.

    Last week the net was abuzz over DFW saying fighters would soon be given health care. Oopsy daisy now he's saying he didn't mean that and was actually responding to the wrong tweet. What a shithead.

    Are you serious? What a piece of shit. As much as it disgusts me to say, I think the Paul brothers are beginning a new fighter pay movement that might actually stick
