    I’m not sure I agree.

    But, if I had a dollar for every title fight Dana said was next. And, then it turned out differently. I’d be able to fill my driveway with snow all year round, too.

    I would prefer that the MW title picture not be a complete clusterfuck.

    i didnt say anything about a title fight, im saying look what happened to emmett, he was ranked around 11 before the ricardo fight, now after coming in overweight and sleeping lamas, he is ranked 5 i think? my point i was trying to make is that these guy who r coming in overweight and winning the fight are being rewarded for it. i think that needs to change because its setting a bad example. if u come in overweight and win u should not be moved up in ranking. yoel had nothing at all to lose by coming in overweight, only to gain and gain he did. dana came out immediately and said yoel is fighting robert. so he was also rewarded for coming in heavy. its kind of BS but im glad he kod luke cause i hate him lol

    No. If Luke won, he would’ve gotten champ pay and not challenger pay against Whitaker.

    Think big picture bro and what all this means to the ufc and the fighters. MONEY.

    The next title challenger will all come down to timing imo. We would have to know when Whittaker can resume full training and if there was no bad damage to Romeros leg before any decisions are made. If Whittaker amd Romero are ready at similar timeframes then i can imagine that the fight is a no brainer however if Whittaker is ready significantly before Romero, i can very well see Weidman slip in as the next challenger as he is coming off a win and Jacare got destroyed by Whittaker less than a yr ago.

    Did I lay any blame?

    I said that it is a clusterfuck. Do you disagree?

    Whittaker beats Romero again, then goes on to beat Jacare/Weidman winner, Gastelum and everyone else.

    Future MW GOAT!

    Well yeh I do. I think the prospect of not giving Romero the shot if he won (because of the weight) made it a potential clusterfuck but thankfully he got the shot anyway so it isn't, as he's the clear #1 contender and the first fight with Whittaker was close enough for such a sudden rematch to be okay

    I am excited for the rematch, not going to fool myself and believe that Romero has a better chance of winning this time.

    This confirms that all the interim belts mean nothing, even making weight means nothing outside of a real title fight, UFC will still just make the fights they want to make regardless.

    This fight certainly showed how legit Whittaker was. I imagine when Whittaker got passed Jacare and Romero in consecutive fights some may have been skeptical and wondering if both of them were on their way out as far as being contenders. Their rebounds after losing to Whittaker showed they're as dangerous as ever and that indeed Whittaker is the real deal as far as MW fighters go.

    Interim belt in UFC is relevant like semaphore in GTA.
