    If MMA wasn't cursed Jon Jones would have already wrapped up his rivalries against DC, Gus and possibly AJ. Romero would have been champ with title defenses, possibly losing it to RW. lol @ Bisping still being champ. Ferguson and Khabib should have fought a long time ago and should have already had their trilogy. etc. Kinda like in Boxing where fights take years to happen except there's a shitload of things in MMA that can cause it other than just ducking.
    Where do you see the last 2-3 years going if everything had a normal timeline and nothing went wrong?

    Anderson wanted to box Roy Jones Jr. That would have been a good prequel to May vs Mac

    GSP should have already made his return blah blah blah, Their is reasons things to no play themselves out so I only care about fights that are on paper signed by both fighters
    and if the fight falls through I forget about it the second I hear of it's failure. I find it weird how so many people get emotionally invested in this crap, I guess if I knew the people it
    would be different but I don't so screw it who is next.

    Watch more MMA from around the world and stop being lazy and only watching UFC.

    Start appreciating all levels and you won't get bored.

    Tons of fights obviously but to name one that almost happened was Randy Couture vs Andrei Arlovkski which was scheduled for UFC 42 but Couture was later offered to drop to 205 and fight Chuck for the belt at UFC 43 which he took.

    I'll break this down for you:

    1. JBJ rivalry with DC has been wrapped up.
    2. GUS and AJ have both lost to JBJ in the past and won't beat him now.
    3. Romero? Has lost it is now about Whittaker
    4. Khabib and Bisping fights haven't happened due to injuries.
    5. There's been a lot of other bigger fights happen in the past 2-3 years.

    I can't believe we're still talking about Khabib and Ferguson as potential contenders.

    We should be beyond that by now. Either they lost or won and now it's all about a Barboza vs. Lee title eliminator or something like that.

    And, as I remember, Dana White said that he does not agree with this fight because he doesn't want his fighters to get injured outside the octagon.

    And now... fucking Dana.

    A lot of fights should have happened....except that a bunch of champs all of a sudden think it's cool to duck top competition to protect their "legacies."

    Well technically he hasn't but I don't see Rumble beating JBJ(especially if he can't beat DC).

    JBJ > DC(x2)

    DC > Rumble(x2)

    JBJ > DC > Rumble.
