On the plus side, Matt Hughes might be coming back....
4.2 billion is a lot of money to recoup especially when your only draw is interested in competing in sport you have no affiliation with.
I'll be shocked if Rogan re-ups in August and it wouldn't surprise me if Dana walks before the end of his contract

Unfortunately I get the feeling Rogan is done after this current contract is up, too. If you listen to his podcast he always says how much fudge he has going on and different stuff he wants to do. It would be a real bummer because goddamn is he good. I guess I'll keep the Fight Companions on during fights, ha.

Mayweather will put win easily. He may be 40 but it is a boxing match and he is about as good as has ever put on gloves.

Conor will build the hype to the point where people actually think he is a chance...

Would Vegas even take bets on it? If it were a back alley fight with no rules then I think Conor would destroy him. It is a boxing match and there is no one better at boxing than Mayweather. The only real question in my mind is what round would the knockout occur. My guess is 3rd round.

Highly doubt Money knocks him out. I don't think he loses, but he's 40, way smaller and not his style.

Arum: UFC wants 50 percent of Conor McGregor’s purse for Floyd Mayweather fight

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2017/3/23/15 ... g-mma-news

I'm not sure what think or even believe about this. Arum sounds like he's bitter that he's not involved with possible fight, plus his public disdain of the UFC/MMA and Dana White shines through in this clip. I guess only time will tell

Bellator thinking they can pull a successful, money making PPV is quite hilarious.

For those that didnt watch this past weekend, lots of badass finishes. DJ armbaring Reis is pretty incredible given the credentials behind Reis being a Roberto Godoi black belt.

Thug was a thug on the karate hottie and Whittaker shocking probably most and finishing Souza.

Lots of good fights on the undercard too.

That UFC press conference was painful to watch...WTF is going on? Bunch of wanna be Conor's and awful line up of fights. It's like they are trying to force feed you this slop. You better pay Conor, Nick and Nate...who knows what's going on with GSP. The future or new direction looks, sounds and feel awful
