    2016 has been a curse for MMA so many fights getting changed or scrapped. March begins the second quarter of 2016 and no championship fights, hopefully 2016 will turnaround.

    Khabib better wear a pillow suit we all know he has the durability of an 80 yr old.

    I agree with the exception of this nitpicking.
    Isn't quarterly in terms of calendar year 3 months?

    If March - December 2016 were perfect, it seems like January & February would be 20% rather than 25% (1/4)!

    This isn't a trend or blip on the radar, it is reality for MMA in this day and age. Accept it

    I agree it is a reality my point is that it's just sad how many good fights we have to miss.

    We're only three months in and you're calling it for the whole year? Guessing you weren't around for 2014.

    Pretty much every year lately has been the year of the pullouts.

    Came here to say "2016? I've been pulling consistently since late 2002, early 2003" but I see you basically beat me to it.
