  2. I think it depends on the matchup. Jessica Andrade? I think that's a tough matchup for pretty much everyone. Some of these developing strawweights like Amanda Cooper or Jamie Moyle, I think she can have a ton of success just because she has advanced past that level now. I think she can beat some established names at 115 as well.
  3. I think it's interesting that Andrade and her team turned down a title shot, but are still interested in a fight with Angela Hill.
  4. Usually (in the case(s) I'm familiar with), the person who runs the channel with the original content just needs to inform Youtube and Youtube will take the videos down or in many scenarios shut the channel stealing that content down altogether. Yeah, this sounds like the end because a lot of those fighters are connected with other fighters. I wonder if Melanson is with Rumble because that's kinda critical for someone about to fight Cormier again.
  5. Save for Hill, we already knew they were world class fighters though. It isn't that much of stretch to believe that Khabib can beat a solid but coming in on like days notice prospect like Darrell Horcher or that he could beat someone like Michael Johnson. The thing w/ Khabib and Cruz is just staying healthy. Mousasi had that Hall fight from the Barnett vs. Nelson card (IIRC), but I felt like he was due for a run especially with some of the matchups available in the middleweight division. I think the context I can provide for maybe both Mutante and Hill is that it's a bitch trying to just stay on roster. Hill certainly got cut too quickly, which ended up actually working to her advantage because you have tougher but still softer touches available in Invicta for her to develop. I feel she can do a lot more than just be a kickboxer w/ power. Mutante's run prior to 2016 was three devastating losses and two wins over two fighters who barely deserved to be in the UFC. Bamgbose is a boom or bust fighter, but I think the wins over Smith and Hermansson are good wins especially considering how barren that middleweight landscape looks once you get past the top 10 and the difficult of putting together wins. Hence, why Mutante is getting someone like Theodorou instead fighting on some Titan FC show now. If he wins that fight, he's probably getting a bottom top 10 or top 15 opponent. That's a hell of a career turnaround if that happens.
  6. For those not privy to alot of the UFC prelim fights, Cezar Ferreira basically saved his MMA career moving to MMA Masters. The dude's chin was horrific, and he was more or less destined to be cut because all he was known for was being Vitor's homeboy. Also getting knocked clean out everytime he fought. Since leaving Blackzilians early last year, he has actually looked like a decent middleweight as opposed to a chinny dude who shouldn't be on the UFC roster at all. I think his most impressive win was Anthony Smith, who I think is finally coming into his own as a fighter. Can Ferreira be a top 10 middleweight? Probably not, but he looks like an UFC middleweight now instead of somehow I doubt would've even cut it in Bellator prior to changing gyms.

  11. Henri Hooft has left Blackzilians. The only thing keeping that team afloat now is Rumble's career. If he decided to join a new gym at any point, that team is basically dead because Glenn Robinson isn't in the best financial shape at the moment.
  12. If Duquesnoy can get the right fights to help develop him, he has championship caliber talent.
  13. Rory beat him up over 15 minutes, but Edgar in that third fight just absolutely got in his ass. What Yair was throwing was him...like it took over 1,000 strikes for BJ to be knocked down in his career before Rodriguez did it. Yair wobbled him big time in round 1. Round one. Yair could have legitimately and permanently injured BJ in a way that someone like Edgar (or even Rory at 170) couldn't have done. The dude is throwing like a head kick one right after another in rapid succession. He came out of the gate doing that. BJ was going around the cage like a cheap dollar store umbrella in a windy rainstorm.
  14. I don't think that's Dana department anymore. If Ari Emanuel wants BJ Penn to get his ass kicked on television, Penn wants that fight, and people are willing to watch that, then what can Dana do really? Dana's job is be a glorified adviser and get certain things from point A to B. I dunno what Dana's relationship with Penn is now, but I doubt Dana White of all people is going to obstruct what clearly is a business move. They wanted to get a fighter over and for him to get a rub. It served its purpose. If this was just some fight where nobody got anything from it, then Dana might have intervened. However, they won't trying to stop him when he was getting booked for those other fights post Edgar III destruction and that was still the previous regime. I don't think Penn vs. Siver or Penn vs. Cole Miller would have really added any extra buys to UFC 199. So at this point, the only person who could have stopped BJ Penn was....BJ Penn.
  15. I would only feel bad for him if Yair was like an injury replacement for someone who BJ clearly could have gotten a win over. If Penn feels like he can upset a prospect like Yair Rodriguez to the point he's talking cash shit, it's evident that this is the opponent he wanted. It's the same with something like Hopkins vs. Joe Smith Jr. Hopkins is one of my favorite fighters, but you have to know when to step away.
