    he deserves it. Plus he doesnt have much longer in this fight game so they better not pull a Maia on him.

    they are setting a bad example, these fighters coming in, not making weight, destroying their opponent, and rising them up in the rankings. off the top of my head, this same thing just happened with josh emmett, he came in way overweight, won, and now is in line for a title shot. i think he was ranked like 11th at the time. smh. dont get me wrong im glad yoel won and smashed rockhold, but this is a trend that has to end!!!! whats the sense of coming in on weight?? in big fights, give up some of your purse, come in a few pounds over, so u have a huge advantage over your opponent, smash him, and move up the ranks. theres no downside

    Of course he is.

    Not only is he the most deserving but Dana knows people will tune in to watch Romero.

    It's not my favorite outcome after he missed weight, but he makes more sense than anybody else. It's not like the Rockhold fight is reasonable after tonight, and Weidman needs another win.

    Don't temp Dana. Dana and company are known to make meaningless bouts for contenders.

    I would rather see Whitaker fight someone else but the top 4 contenders: Romero, Weidman, Jacare, and Gastelum, are all on 1 fight win streaks so what can you do.

  11. Tony Ferguson: Longest active 10 fight win streak in the UFC, interim title holder, never missed weight, never failed a test by USADA; doesn't get a shot at the real title

    Yoel Romero: Misses weight by over 3 lbs, popped by USADA after being gifted a decision against Jacare, on a 1 fight win streak after missing weight; gets to rematch Whittaker (who beat him while fighting injured, less than a year ago) for the real belt

    UFC promotion is an absolute embarrassment. Them and WME are in for a hilariously rude awakening when they post numbers that make 2014 look like the most profitable ever after Conor once again doesn't return with Brock, Jones, and Ronda all suspended/retired.

    I'd still love to see Branch vs Romero I think it would be a great fight. Maybe if Whittaker isnt ready Romero will will fight the Santos vs Branch winner.

    Bobby Knuckles will win even easier next time around on two good legs. The thing we know about rematches between old fighters and young fighters where the young fighter has already won is that the only thing that changes in the rematch is that the young fighter wins even easier.

    If Bisping doesn't fight Romero, then he's officially retiring on a duck.


    Might as well say Romero made Bisping retire...kind of like what Khabib's doing with Conman.

    I can't see much changing from the first fight, and Whittaker was injured in that too. I also think a really good 25 year old beats a really good 41 year old
