Don’t even discuss it.
I have no interest in Peanut Heads fights, the little twerp is only interested in fighting cans and shits the bed at the prospect of fighting a bantamweight. . Yes, he has a head like a peanut.
lol at mighty duck johnson taking the TJ fight.
UFC 227 is already a weak card.
Look at how many Bantamweights are fighting! LOL
I have a feeling this card is being used to set that up, like how 220 set up DC/Stipe.
Well at least there's backups in case TJ or Cody get injured.
Volkan gets injured and pulls out. Cormier steps in and we get a third title fight
Agreed. There are a lot of ways to fix this.
Firstly, I believe that UFC fighters should be paid more, as you said. HOWEVER, they should also be required to purchase insurance on their fight on the UFCs behalf, with part of their salary. In the event that they pull out of a fight, the insurance would pay for their salary and the UFC's losses, and possibly their opponents lost salary, depending on pre-defined formulas and criteria (i.e. the UFCs ability to put on an alternative opponent fight).
Fighters that constantly pull out of fights would have higher and higher insurance costs, and thus would have to decide whether it is worth it.
Secondly, the UFC should make stricter weight policies: If you miss weight, you legally must accept a fight at a higher weight class for your next fight, or be in breach of contract. Darren Till should be legally obligated to fight at Middleweight right now, for one "penalty" fight.
Third, the UFC should make clearer alternative-fight clauses in their contracts, with financial penalties for fighters declining last-minute replacements (in addition to zero show money). They should then pay "backup fighters" to train & make weight, in case they are needed. To make this financially viable, they should try to run as many fights in the same division as possible on a given card.
Fourth, the UFC should institute mandatory hydration tests AND publically reported weights when fighters walk into the Octagon. They should then increase penalties for failing weigh-ins or hydration tests to 50% of your purse. If you decline to fight, you are legally obligated to pay your opponent's show money and get zero of your own.
Basically it should be so crippling for fighters to fail to make weight or decline fights, that they literally couldn't think of doing it.
I wish, but Cormier is going on vacation and ballooning to 250+. He'll probably need 2 months to get to 230-235, before he cuts weight down to 205.
What is this misunderstanding about cormiers weight? He's repeatitively said he didn't put on any weight for his hw fight
I think TJ - Cody is not happening
Cody has injuries and a lot of back problems.
Tj takes too many steroids
Cejudo likes to miss weight
DJ doesnt like his opponents to miss weight
Correira doesn't count as fighting, more like village level barfighting
if it's to get sacrificed, DEFINITELY MM cejudo 2. it would actually even improved the card, as someone above said
Who cares, they're all shit any way
or gets brutally KO'd and his fans demand a title fight
Come on dude stop trying to jinx it
I really dont give a shit about MM so i guess ill just watch his fights with hopesvof an upset
Hopefully they cancel the whole thing, nobody wants to watch manlets.
Garbrandt will pull due to injury and Mighty mouse will mysteriously feel ill after that.
