    Not sure if this question is allowed but i'd like to know how one goes about getting into a career/position writing articles for MMA websites. I believe i'm a talented writer and used to do some pretty neat write ups for an MMA game, and would like to know what it takes to go forward.

    Hi Ant. I enjoy your writing and the video series. Keep up the great work!

    Really hyped for the Valentina - Joanna fight in Toronto.

    What must each fighter do to win?

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely is it that Jon Jones will test positive for ped's before his fight?

    Just tossing out a bunch of question. jeicex, feel free to pick whichever you feel is most interesting.

    * Considering the Fury-Wilder judging-travesty, at what risk do you think we are at seeing fixed decision in MMA? (or has it already happened)

    * If Israel Adesanya wins the belt, would he be the nerdiest UFC champion in history? How does he stack-up vs other all-time great geeks like GSP or Josh Barnett?

    * Do interim belt really mean anything to fighters and casuals? Do they increase buys and hype? God knows the UFC loves them.

    * Thoughts on the rise of ACA in Russia? Are we seeing the birth of a new Nr 2 organization in the world?

    So. There was a thread on here about Ortega saying he wanted Khabib after he wins the belt. How do you feel about the whole Champ vs Champ thing or should the guy just concentrate on his own division and maybe... actually defend the belt first?

    What do you think about Dominick Cruz coming back against John Lineker at UFC 233 ? Do you think he should fight for the title next if he wins and how do you see a rematch with him and tj going ?

    Ben Duffy, the GSP of MMA reporting. All-arounder while being cool and calculative.

    Who has the best opportunity to beat T-Wood? Colby with his pace and enthusiastic striking? Or Usman with his power-wrestling and solid gameplans?

    Ponz is really an expert at fighting in the pocket. Not sure if that's a bad or a good things vs Woodly.

    For me, the losses to Sheilds and Rory are still kind of holding him back against Hughes. Not to mention razor-close fights with Wonderboy. 1 or 2 fight more though...

    Rory is probably still T-Woods biggest threat. Stylistic nightmare.
