My best friend (who is a casual but interested fight fan) asked me today what big fights are coming up. And as I scanned Sherdog, it occurred to me that the UFC has actually totally dropped the ball. Specifically: -Stipe may or may not fight Ngannou in March. -Jones is in suspended animation -Blachowicz may or may not fight Adesanya in February-April. -Whittaker will not fight until at least February. -None of Usman, Colby, Burns, or Masvidal are booked at 170. -Khabib is on the shelf, likely forever, as is GSP. -Conor, Dustin, Justin, Tony, and Chandler are all unbooked, as is Hooker. -Volk will fight Ortega, but again, not yet booked. -Cody is unbooked. -Weili is unbooked. Instead, we have Valentina in a fight nobody wants to see as the co-main event for a dreadful 125 title affair between DFig and...some guy named Perez? The December card is Yan v. Sterling, which is fine...but not as the main event of the end of the year mega card. We are getting nothing. Why? Were is the building anticipation? And where the fuck is Uber-Jones????
