We could be a lot of more of this until everyone starts coming into town at a sensible weight to begin their initial cut.

According to sources, Burns arrived in Orlando weighing 186 pounds. The UFC is currently hoping to reschedule him on the April 14 UFC on FOX 29 card. Aubin-Mercier is expected to fight sooner.

Yeah, that will do it.

apropos of nothing, but i'd like to see a Rany Yahya-Yuri Alcantara matchup.

I'm surprised it hasn't happened yet even though a lot of Brazilian fighters don't like facing other Brazilians. I mean Iuri is almost forty, and Rani Yahya has been competing in prominent organizations for well over a decade. I guess it's just one of those fights that never materialized.

A couple fights here I am interested in.  Thankfully, both Emmett and Stephens made weight without issue.

Josh Emmett is the jacked up version of Powder.

All 3 women's fights should be great and the main event will end with someone getting Starched

Sam Alvey just had one of those old guy slumps on his knees K-1 highlight reel KOs and then afterwards basically tried to acquire a Florida tourism sponsorship.

What a modern day renaissance man.

That was fucking awesome. All the promo was missing was a 2x4 and a "hoooooo!" at the end.

Marcin Prachnio better get them hands up next time he's fighting.

That's twice in a row Sara's been whoopin' ass and got caught in a sub.

Speakin' of subs, Rani Yahya's got more than a dang Wawa and doesn't get the respect he deserves IMO. Despite having a style that should have lead him to being a forgotten WEC flameout, he's put together a UFC record of 10-3-1 with 5 subs and two of those losses to title contenders. Always stoked to see him win.

Awesome win for Reneau! One of my favorites, always happy to see her win especially ever since her last horribly awful 'loss' 2 years ago. Great performance in that second round.

Still hasn't gotten use to the striking aspect, which Marion took advantage of. It doesn't help that she has that muscular build so she forces her punches a bit. All Marion had to do was place one punch right on the button. Perfect recipe for disaster against a wrestler who struggles to get takedowns as fights go along.

I had no idea Yahya was 10-3-1 in the UFC. As an aside, Josh Burkman is 6-13 with 1 NC in the UFC after losing last week. He has to be up there in terms of UFC losses.

So, I guess that's the derailed train lighting on fire, right? He looked completely lost against the rangier fighter and just has way too many holes defensively to be taken seriously.

Shit, I had it paused for a while. Latifi wins! I didn't think it would go down like that. But I'm glad it did.

I'd like to know who has the biggest +/- in regards to UFC wins and losses. He's gotta be way up there at -7.
