    ""UFC has informed Germaine de Randamie and her management team that she is being removed as the women’s featherweight champion due to her unwillingness to fight the No. 1 ranked contender, Cris ‘Cyborg' Justino,"
    "UFC maintains that any champion is expected to accept fights against the top contenders in their respective weight classes in order to maintain the integrity of the sport.”

    Even the UFC agrees for the integrity of the sport you should fight the top contenders of your weight class and not the number one contender of the weight class above u. I'm with DJ on this one. Come to the division get one win and then challenge for the title. Don't just come down once win the title then abandon the weight class.

    I would normally side with DJ on this but:

    1. It's to soon for Ray Borg. They are not giving these guys enough time to get some experience under their belt and build themselves up. It was to soon for Cejudo as well.

    2. TJ vs DJ is just a damn good fight. DJ has been defending against challenger's for a while now it's fun to see them against something different like this every now and then. Just like it was fun watching Anderson go up and KO Forrest and Irvin.

    This has nothing to do with Mighty Mouse and if anything he should have to fight TJ since he is the most qualified contender with the best chance to win the title.

    Borg has missed weight several times recently (2 of his last 4) and recently lost decisively to Scoggins. TJ is a former champ in the top 15 p4p who arguably won the fight in which his title was taken away via split decision.

    Well technically Connor's weight class was no longer 145. Plus they did take his belt.

    The UFC is serious bullshit.

    Dana, and the fans flip flop on who they hate from day to day.

    What old school fan ever thought ex-champs should move DOWN to get a free TS ? Right about ZERO.

    Casual fans have enabled the UFC to turn into the mma equivalent of WWE.

    I don't understand why DJ has such a problem fighting Dillashaw.

    ex champs moving up to get title shots sounds better?

    Bullshit. Conor is the biggest draw the UFC has ever seen and has taken awful stylistic fights on short notice when opponents pulled out whereas 90% of the roster would have NOT taken the fight. The company needs him more than he needs them and he is uncomparable to any other fighter, especially MM or Germaine.

    Michael Bisping is on the tail end of his career and is looking for one last paycheck and damn well deserves it. He is the last breed of old school fighters from the Zuffa era and he has done everything the UFC has asked for for over 10 years. He is charismatic and loyal to the company.

    Germaine was 6-3 and was gifted a title shot in a "new division" against Holly who was coming off 2 losses. Hell, 75% of the people Germaine beat in her career don't even have Wikipedia pages. They are part-time moms. It was a joke of a match making fight, especially without Cyborg involved. Germaine isn't a draw, has done nothing of significance in her UFC career, and does not have the right to call any of her own shots.

    Because he wants to continue to beat abnormally undersized men in a talentless division and proclaim himself as the best fighter in the world, ahead of guys like Jon Jones, GSP, Anderson Silva, etc, you know, guys who fought legitimate killers who can take your head off.

    You all saw what happened when Mighty Mouse fought Cruz. What do you think Dillashaw 2.0 would do against GOAT MM?

    He is concerned about Dillashaw making weight when the guy he is BEGGING to fight has had multiple instances of not making weight. In a fight NO ONE wants to see. Ray Borg lost to Justin Scoogins 2 fights ago! WHO THE FUCK IS 11-4 JUSTIN SCOOGINS??

    He doesn't have a problem fighting him. He just asked for assurances should Dillashaw not make weight since he's never fought at the weight before. Assurances that TJ himself said he didn't care about. It's the UFC that refused those assurances while guaranteeing that TJ would make weight even though since they can guarantee that TJ will make weight then they have no worries to agree to what DJ wanted since it wouldn't cost them anything.

    Conor could be fighting Ferguson instead of Floyd.

    Lolololololol Conor is expendable like everyone else on the roster
    <18>


    Everyone's compensated for what they can bring to the table. Do you even business?

    WME/UFC suddenly arguing about credibility is like a KKK member complaining about racism.

    Talentless division? Nuh uh. Dodson and Benavidez are just as good as other top 5s, maybe even Cejudo
