If Cormier wins, I won't be able to take him as champ seriously. I mean Jones won that fight soundly. I can see why they stripped the title from Jones, but it will still be an interim title fight to most people. AJ as champ would be cool, and Jones' return fight against him would be huge, but AJ being called the undisputed champ is simply an untrue statement. It's disputed. Jon Jones is in his prime, he's undefeated, it's the elephant in the room.

Seriously though, I've been a Jon Jones supporter, but he's been ****ing ridiculous. He needed a wake up call, I think he'll be champ again.

Rumble is going to destroy DC. Won't even be a contest.

I think it will be competitive. I could see DC taking Rumble down.

Agreed, Cormier is a quick fat boy too, has good head movement, hasn't been rocked. AJ has a different level of power though, and he goes after it early. I can see either guy winning by TKO. If AJ's cardio starts to fade, he'll probably get pounded out, or get his back taken and choked out.

Edit: Ariel shot this down earlier, doesn't look like it's true:

Rumor that the UFC might add a 115 lb men's division (Strawweight). I dunno man, I'm just scared of how much Rogan is going to talk about how fast they are. They're fast, they're fast, look at that speed, fast, fast, quick, lightning quick, Nestle Quick.

Former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis has been struck by injury once again and will no longer compete in his scheduled bout with Myles Jury at UFC on FOX 16 on July 25. Striking specialist Edson Barboza has been tapped as his replacement.

 

Khabib talked trash about Pettis being injury prone, got injured.

Miocic, complete dominance of Hunt in Round 1. 

2 for 2 in takedowns, which is quite a feat against Hunt. Actually made it look easy

Outstruck him on the feet and on the ground.

 

Round 2 - Miocic now 3 for 3 in Takedowns

Hunt is hurt

Miocic now up, 2-0

 

Round 3 - Miocic now 4 for 5 in Takedowns

Hunt has been constantly bludgeoned. Only Hunt could take that kind of punishment, and stay sober

Miocic up 3-0

 

Round 4 - Stipe says,, "Hey if the Takedown is workin, do it again, and grind out some more GNP"

Now he's 5 for 6 in TD's

Hunt's whole face is swollen. One eye is pretty much shut

It's now 4-0.....In between the 4th and 5th, Doctor warmed he may stop the fight if Hunt can't see

 

TKO Miocic. Utter dominance

Hunt looks like he was run over by a tractor trailer.

Miocic doesn't even look like he was in a fight. Virtually without a scratch

Thanks Mal Dep. Hunt might hang 'em up soon, Miocic is obviously more of an MMA fighter. Hunt could get by with his hands until he ran in to JDS, and now the wear and tear along with his age are telltale signs that the Cinderella story is over.

Can't believe he had the run in the UFC that he did. Was basically granted his first couple of fights because of his Pride contract. He lost the first fight I believe, then came the surge.

Perhaps a rematch with Bigfoot, but I'm not too keen on seeing Hunt take more shots to the head. Yeah it's made of reinforced concrete, but we know that because of all the damn bombs he's eaten.

Maybe he still can make noise in kickboxing, not sure how deep HW is currently. Otherwise, novelty fights are in his UFC future.

It was closer to a snuff film than an actual fight

 

The ref, the fight doctor, & Hunt's corner should face some kind of discipline for allowing that to go as long as it did. Hunt is the very type of fighter that will always need others to look out for his well being in the cage. He is unnaturally tough, but that beating lasted a couple of rounds longer than it ever should have.

 

I don't like to feel uncomfortable when watching a fight, last night was one of those instances.

missed the fight, but saw Hunt's face and was kinda glad I didn't watch.

As for Miocic or any UFC HW going on a run- I'll believe it when I see it. HW is so thin, Stipe could have just earned the next tirle shot when you factor in injuries. When big dudes finally break, they also take a long time to heal. I just want one HW belt holder to fight 3 times in 18 months, I don't really care who it is.

I watched it. Poor Mark, he just could not deal with Stipe's ground game. I think Miocic is trying to take a page from Cain's book.

One of the MMA's most coveted prospects is headed to Bellator.

Three-time national wrestling champion and four-time All-American Ed Ruth has signed a contract to compete in the promotion. The former Penn State standout had been talking to several promotions as he trains for the 2016 Olympics, but decided on Bellator in large part because of his rapport with president Scott Coker.

"I've known for a long time now that after I get Olympic gold around my neck, I was going to go get some MMA gold for my waist," Ruth told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani, who later confirmed the signing with Bellator. "I've been talking with all the major organizations, and at the end of the day, I really believe in what Scott Coker is doing with Bellator. They're signing the top talent, they're putting on exciting fights, and they're letting me secure my own sponsors.


Bellator has been signing some real good prospect lately. Now that Reebok money has been revealed to be considerably less than what most were expecting, I wonder if it leads to more fighters looking to go elsewhere.

I read on Bloody Elbow Coker is getting so many calls from UFC fighters, camps & managers he has resorted to saying "talk to me when you are a free agent", can't do nothing for you now homie.

I wonder if Jones jumps ship? No longer under a championship clause, did he have a multi fight contract like Anderson or just the automatic renewal since he was made champ & never lost?

Jones' next fight might be in a federal penitentiary.
