    HW: nothing
    LHW: nothing since Jones is out
    MW: there is some potential
    WW: nothing, there is some potential
    LW: ok, Conor-Nate even if people hate that.
    FW: nothing.
    BW: TJ - Cody. Dom could be included in the mix. And MM - TJ as well.
    FLW: :)))

    Guess we should watch wwe or read comics, because the UFC is out of ideas for these stupid scripted rivalries we had.

    Who cares. Not every match needs a soap opera attached to it.

    The only rivalries that mattered were:
    Chuck v Tito
    Cruz v Faber
    Jones v Society

    Rivalries are boring (and fake) most of the time. Just let the best fighters fight each other, how difficult is that?

    But the show. You need some entertainment. And such combinations were fun, see Edgar vs Maynard. Cruz vs Faber. Even Anderson - Shael :)))

    Yes, that is a fake rivalry indeed. But I feel TJ-Cody is not.

    They should fire Aerobic Trainer & hire this man:

    Think about a trouble-maker...

    I was hoping Rory Mac and Jordan Mein would have a good rivalry, both good Canadian boys both trained in all disciplines from a young age, and both made the UFC very young. But that didn't work out...

    Yeah, obviously there's a reason for trying to create fake rivalries, grudge matches and shit - but imo it's getting boring. Let's just see the best contenders fight and let go of (at least some of) the stupid shit.

    Rivalries are great. UFC217 proves how much better it is when the fighters get the fans invested in the results.
