Carlos Ulberg looked good, but calling out Dominick Reyes seems like a weak call out. Especially considering Ulberg will probably be ranked next to him, or even given his spot without even having to fight him.

What the UFC really needs is someone like the Sandman from the Apollo.

Some of these dudes are getting loose with the tongue.

Over the last year, I've been dying laughing at Daniel Cormier's evolution of the post fight interview. When he started doing them, guys would grab the mic after he did the "Give it up one last time for so and so." It's the cringiest shit when a fighter does that. So over the last 9 months Cormier has gotten really good at pivoting away from the fighter and shielding the the mic. Then he started doing this thing, especially on ESPN fight night cards, where he'll fast walk away and give the final line as he's heading out the door.

I wish he snapped on Kape and Radtke like he did that dude on the last ABC card who said fuck.
