The Machida-Hendo rematch is off due to this. Machida admitted to taking a banned substance while taking a drug test.

If you want to talk about it, you can discuss it in that thread since neither fighter is a part of the show anymore.

Torres-Namajunas II is the new co-main. Swanson-Dias on the main card now.

Santiago Ponzinibbio is one of my favorite fighters to watch. Probably never going to be a world beater, but a very talented striker that provides a bunch of action. That Larkin fight was bananas. Good to see him get a victory over a solid fighter in Court McGee.

Was hoping Tecia would pull it off but knew it was over when Rose got the last takedown. Big fan of both, just wanted Tecia to keep her unbeaten streak of all unanimous decision wins alive. Still feels like Joanna champion is a huge step up in competition for Rose at this point but will be an interesting fight for sure vs. either JJ or Gadelha.

Totally agree that's a tremendous step up. I think it has all the makings to be one of the best strawweight fights ever stylewise. However, she can't afford to fight like she did against Torres at certain points especially the middle of round 1 and the majority of round 3. That would play right into the hands of Joanna. I didn't expect Tecia to clip her like that. Against Joanna, that would be curtains. Rose has to fight like she did early on in the second round and use her jab effectively.

I don't think Rashad would leave unless he got really desperate or hard up for money. He wants to compete with the best in the world. The problem is his body isn't responding like it use to.  I think a four or five years ago, he would have bodied somebody like Ryan Bader.  I also think the fight with Glover would've been competitive and went 2-3 rounds before anything decisive happened. When you lose a few steps, fights like those are so easy to look bad in. 

It also doesn't help he is on the smaller side of 205.
