2015 Non-Event General MMA Talk Thread

Recommended Posts

Luis Buscapé and Steve Carl among the cast for TUF 21.

Bones and Rumble just trolled Dana. They faced off and Bones shoved Rumble with his forehead and Rumble shoved him back and faked brawling before they started laughing as Dana desperately tried to break them up.

No surprise here. Bellator MMA went to court today in N.J. to stop Quinton "Rampage" Jackson from fighting for UFC on April 25.

Bellator is seeking an injunction. They claim an exclusive 6-fight deal with Rampage, and say he owes them three more.

Cyborg's manager says she's fighting in July at 145 lbs. and then going to start working towards making 135 lbs. so a fight with Rousey may happen by the end of the year.

I believe it was 145 on 7/10 and then HOPEFULLY a bantamweight fight in the fall. That would put a Rousey fight at the beginning of next year at the earliest.

Ronda got a co-starring role alongside Iko Uwais (The Raid: Redemption, The Raid 2: Berandal) in a movie called Mile 22, which is being produced by Peter Berg. Principal photography starts mid-May. God, they have to get Gareth Evans to direct it.

That means Rousey can't fight until the fall at the earliest.  That's plenty of times for Jessica Eye and Bethe Correia to fight.

Yeah they could do Eye vs. Correia, McMann vs. Holm and Zingano vs. Tate person who wins most impressive gets the title shot. Other two winners then face each other for the next title shot depending if Cyborg proves she can make 135.

It would be Zingano vs. McMann and Holm vs. Tate to keep it W vs. W and L vs. L. Seeing how Reneau is getting on a roll, they may match her with the winner of the trilogy no one wanted (Kaufman vs. Davis III) or the winner of Carmouche vs. Murphy. I can also see them doing Reneau vs. Holm since Tate might be too much too soon for someone like Holm. Plus, that's a way more entertaining style matchup than a rough and rugged Pennington. Pena might be in that mix as well.

 

Basically, all this is going to end up deciding who WILL get sacrificed to Rousey and who POTENTIALLY could get sacrificed to young Cris Justino.

 

Or Julie Kedzie could be dirty and book the Aldana/Evinger winner (if that gets made) against Cyborg for her 135 pound debut in Invicta. However, Aldana maybe in the UFC by then.

It will be interesting to see who fights who and I look forward to all those potential fights you mentioned.

Also the Queen of Spades was the manager for ReDragon last night on the ROH PPV.

Would be hilarious to see Cyborg lose her 135lb fight in Invicta if it ever happens.

If Cris can actually manage to get down to 135, there is no way I would have that fight in Invicta. I dunno what's going with this Lorenzo thing, but it sounds like she has that July obligation anyway. If you know you can only book so many title fights and this last PPV does better than expected, why not do Rousey vs. a live body as a main and Cyborg vs. a live body as a co-main in the fall? It would suck for people looking for competitive fights, but it makes so much sense from a business standpoint. TBH Cyborg vs. Tate makes so much sense as a co-main.

And Neil Magny will be fighting Hyun Gyu Lim on the same card.

Hoping Hunt will be able to back up that with a fight in Melbourne later in the year. Melbourne has a pretty big Islander/NZ population which would probably sell out pretty quickly with Hunt on top.

 

UFC's official Twitter account has confirmed a show in Melbourne for 11/15 (11/14 in North America) today. As far as the numbering goes, it is slated to be UFC 193.

 

Also the latest round of cuts:

Brian Bowles, Stanislav Nedkov, Andy Ogle, Juan Manuel Puig, Tim Gorman, Humberto "Doo Doo" Brown, and Rodolfo Rubio

 

Gonna miss "Stanky" Stan Nedkov

Yep was all over the news here in Australia today which is great. A lot of the radio stations were taking calls from the typical cage fighting is bad crowd but of course none of them had ever seen the UFC. Feels like we are stuck in the 90s. There were people complaining it had no rules.

I want to say I'm surprised, but Rampage sounded delusional and gullible enough about his Hollywood career.  That aside, Bellator and Viacom were dumb enough to agree to those terms...

Hasn't been discussed I don't think. Anyone think the Rousey rumors are true?
