    I feel like there has to be a reason why he's come to the states, doing all this media and getting his name out there?

    Could it be that the UFC agreed on having a LHW interim title fight? Cuz that's what he said "had to happen" some weeks ago iirc, and now he's signed a new deal and seems very happy again.



    Thoughts?

    I assume he means this deal is better than the deals hes had previous

    Interiiim.

    Daniel said that he's not coming back down, or was this just a rumour?

    When UFC fighters make big announcements but dont give any information, they mostly try to stay relevant. Nothing weong with tho

    They're surgically infusing him with a personality.

    I think it is very likely they want him fighting for an interim title. The opponent is the unclear part, as I think they're trying to rebook Volkan vs Shogun.

    If only Latifi wasn't his pal.

    He just said he's done at 40 which leaves him 9 months after the Stipe fight. If he beats Stipe you'd assume he stays at HW but if he loses then maybe 1 more at LHW. He's looking like he's put on a lot of weight though so maybe it's not going to be so easy to get rid of it in time and make 205 again?

    Good for him. With different judges he would already be two time champ

    He said that he's going to be around 228lbs for Stipe, but i doubt that. Although it would make sense if he's considering going back down, but he was 236lbs on fight night vs Rumble... Confusing stuff.

    Gus probably got a 6 fight deal worth 1.5 million a fight including rebook and PPV share. He is really only viable champion now that Daniel is a HW and JBJ is in limbo. He is worth it.

    No I believe he said he wouldn’t stay at HW whatever happened and hinted at retirement in the close future after one further fight. My bet is DC v Gus.

    He means LHW is weak af and they need him, so his contract reflects that.
