    and ppl paid money to see that.
    I'll give Paul some credit, he's putting in work to look like a boxer. Maybe he'd get respect if he fought someone near his weight category.

    Max vs. Volk III set for March along with Yan/Aljo II.

    Really not excited for Max getting another shot. I know he deserves it but if he wins; that means we'll have to see a 4th fight. I think its time for one of them to move up to LW and contend.

    Fucking ridiculous. I'm done buying events. I haven't bought one in awhile, anyways. Usually my brother in law comes over for the fights and his brother lives in Texas and buys them all and we get access via ESPN+. For the events he doesn't come over; I'll just pirate. With the price of ESPN+ included; 2022 will result in the viewer paying $950 estimated for the subscription + all PPV events.

    Fucking insane.

    Max out of the fight due to injury. Helwani hinting that the fight was never official and the UFC jumped the gun in announcing it. Helwani suggesting Max never accepted contract offer due to injury.

    Helwani reporting Korean Zombie has been tapped to replace Max.

    Also we're getting Tai Tuaivasa (spelling) vs Greg Hardy next month. That should be a bangin' fight.

    lol.

    The UFC has sent contract offers to Stipe and Jon Jones for July 2nd UFC PPV event. I fully expect Jones to find a way to turn down the fight and then blame the contract for being low. I still believe the rumor that he's been away from the game for so long because he popped for steroids again and is serving a long suspension. Funny how USADA stopped announcing positive tests.

    Did Phil Baroni beat his wife to death?

    DFW got into a slapfight with his wife at a disco. Put a damper on his slapfight federation. Is he just a Russian puppet now?

    One of the Paul bros. is joining MMA. Imagine that spurs an actual fighters union?

    I dunno I'm just not compelled to return to this sport right now.

    I feel the sport is becoming really stale. Khabib retiring really killed this generation's shot at true GOAT status fighter. There are already rumors that Islam wants 3-5 more fights and then retirement, as well. IDK how true they are but I'm kind of over the sport.

    Jon Jones returns in March vs Gane for the HW title. Ngannou vacated and will sign ith another organization. Tailor made matchup for Jones, really not even excited for it to be honest.
