I havent been following MMA as much this year, all the money fights turned me off.
Glad to see an Aussie do well.

Bisping dummy spit was funny. Some what of a similar scenario to Jones and Cormier regarding the legitimacy of the interim belt.


Fight fans do yourselves a favour.

Watch the 'Ultimate Fighter Season 25' finale main card fight: Johnson vs Gaethje
Contender for fight of the year, will be hard to beat.

Not sold on him. PLENTY tough but stands right in front begging to be hit, can see him getting KO'd a few times against multi-dimensional fighters with enough brains to hit and move. Reminds me a lot of Robbie Lawler.
Bloody entertaining though without a doubt.

Gegard Mousasi signs with Bellator.
Future champ over there. 🔮

Seems odd that he has basically stepped down a level to sign with Bellator.
Why did he quit the UFC, perhaps he thought he should be given a shot at the title? What was he ranked, 5th or something wasn't it?

I watched Ariel Hewani's podcast and Gegard said the money was close but he is changing because he will get more respect from Bellator.

Wants the middleweight belt then to fight at LHW and Heavy Weight.
Wants the big match ups over there with Rory McDonald, Ryan Bader, etc.

He said he felt he was due for a title shot but Whittacker jumped him with his wins and what not.

Hearing Bellator really looks after their fighters, starting to get some big names over there and expect more to come.

UFC has become more concerned with money fights. They dont match champs v number 1 contenders like they used to. These fighters enjoy money and fame but fundamentally they want to be known as the best. They want to challenge themselves against other top liners. I can understand the move to Bellator. It hasnt got the profile of UFC but they are still about the fighting over there.

Bellator is really getting better.
Big fights of late like Tito VS Chael and Chael VS Wanderlai - they're giving the fans what they want.

The signings of Rory Mac, Benson Henderson and now Mousasi, who IMO is top 3 middleweights in the world - steps in the right direction. Rory Mac & Mousasi are I their prime.

It'll be good competition for the UFC and their roster will improve.

UFC is obviously the elite league though but this reebok deal and not doing the fights the fans want is getting old. We all want a Diaz VS McGregor 3, McGregor VS Khabib - and for god sake, make the champs defend their belts !!!

Yep, the UFC is getting to be more of a popularity contest than rewarding blokes who deserve their shot.
Haven't really watched Bellator but with most of it being free-to-air and better quality of fighters moving across I might have to start having a look.
Any chance a title fight to unify belts with Bellator vs UFC in the future? Would think mega-ego's amongst the UFC (Dana) would be a bit hesitant in case a Bellator champ kicks UFC champ's arse.

Never happen... when the UFC bought Pride, they tried the unified belts and Chuck not only lost the Unified tilte, but lost his chin in the same night. It was a PR disaster as far as the UFC was concerned, hence why neither the Strikeforce or WEC guys got the same opportunity, most had to fight their way up the rankings.

Not convinced Cyborg is 100% female to be perfectly honest. Extremely masculine in every sense.

:roll She does indeed! When Wanderlai had his busted nose fixed years ago and after his 1st fight on his return he was interviewed by Rogan and he said "now this face is beautiful!" Seemed like a good bloke but he is one scary-looking dude!
Lawler v Cowboy should be good, when is it?
