    5-1 in the UFC, and they're letting him go to PFL.

    UFC is not the only viable option now for pro fighters. That's a good thing.

    Well, as he went 5-1 with the UFC, it's entirely possible his contract expired and he just chose not to re-sign with the UFC. Doesn't mean they released him. The PFL million dollar prize could lure some other fighters hoping that the org will actually stay together and pay out (which I'm not convinced about, remember that Battlegrounds MMA tournament that never paid out?)

    PFL is basically owned by the UFC. They're a feeder league. Magomedov is a great fighter but nobody knows who he is in a stacked division. PFL needs some talent so the UFC sent him over. Nobody is going to miss him in the UFC. 9/10 people reading this thread just remembered he exists.

    I mean, it's only fair since the UFC has taken all of the talent that WSOF or PFL have built up over the years. But that's how it works with a feeder league.

    As the Smurf said 1 mil is a hearty pay day and Rashid stands a very good chance of winning it especially if no bellator heavys are allowed to enter.

    Has anyone in this thread paid or would for a card comprised entirely of #15 to #100 LHWs or #15 to #100 ranked Dagestanis? Answer is never, impossible.

    Show me any mma organisation that has put on a card like that.

    No, it is a terrible thing.

    Get ready for 20 weight divisions and multiple organisation champions with top guys fighting once a year. Hope you enjoy it.

    Gone are the days where you can watch the best guys fight the best guys 2-3 times a year.

    Yea, now you have...

    - UFC under WME-IMG: Coming off a terrible year as they had one big money fight and then lost the reason for it, for the foreseeable future.
    - Bellator under Viacom: Viacom is going through restructuring, who knows if they will keep Bellator around.
    - PFL under MMAX Investment Partners: They bought and renamed WSOF. Everything looked really good for UFC a few months after they were bought.

    Just great news all around.

    Rashid is a 155er.

    The tournament is probably at 170, I remember Jake Shields wanting to come out of retirement for it.

    Did I miss the part where Rashid was a "top fighter?" Anyway, his contract was probably up and he made a business decision. This isn't exactly the UFC releasing Okami, Shields, or Fitch.

    All they want to do is shove garbage cans like Sage and Paige down our throats and pass it off as high level MMA. UFC is going down hill badly in terms of talent.
