    Comparing mens and womens divisions is silly. Flyweight is better than any wmma division, and guys like Benevidez, MM, Dodson, etc.did very well fighting undersized at BW. MM and Joe B were title contenders at bw.

    Ronda was great at one aspect of the game, but got exposed when the competition catched up to her. She didn't develop the rest of her game, and was punished for it. DJ's competition is not that good either, for the simple reason that very few men are that small, but if you just do the eye test, you can easily tell how skilled DJ is. He literally has zero flaws. It's fine if you don't like looking at small men fight, but don't suggest that DJ is comparable to Ronda - DJ is a freaking master at his craft and if you've watched more than a few MMA fights you should really be able to see that. It's possible that he wouldn't be as dominant a champ, if he was bigger and thus competing in a higher (more competitive) weight class, but he'd still be one of the top fighters in the organisation.

    That's a silly thing to say. I don't even think you're trolling.

    Johnson just said the whole thing was a huge misunderstanding, and he hopes to squash it with White at UFC 214.

    Ball's in White's court, but Johnson is still pushing for the Borg fight. My guess is White will book it, but bury it on a FS1 / Fight Pass card.

    Such an ironic post from a Conor fan.At least Johnson defends his belt.

    His type have been ruined by an ingrained sense of entitlement.

    If you don't baby them along and give constant reassurance, they will feel like they are being discriminated against or oppressed.

    Joe B and Dodson aren't legitimate competition?

    Ariel Helwani's actions are not the problem. What he is doing is the right thing to do.

    The only thing that should erk the fans and most of you are too stupid to articulate it in words even though you instinctively feel sketched is the fact that he has been a UFC lapdog and would have continued to be their lapdog if he could keep getting away with it. That's the sketchy part about Ariel, not his snarky passive aggressive style of reporting.

    That's part of the nature of the job.

    You mean he's doing to KO you or decision you? Because he can do both.

    To answer your question, MM will never stop whining. If he hasn't figured out that he needs the UFC a hell of a lot more than they need him, I don't think that revelation is in the cards for him.

    He said the same thing months, even years ago. You are just now paying attention.

    MM can always ask out of his UFC contract and go to Bellator. Oh, I forgot, Bellator does not have a men's flyweight division (although they have a women's flyweight division). In all seriousness, think about it for a minute, Bellator elected to start a women's 125-pound division instead of a men's division. That fact alone should indicate the value the top promotions see in men's flyweight.
