    anyone else excited? i know he cheated and still got ktfo, but i missed his style
    hope he is clean now and still has more left in him
    really hope he wont fall into post usada belfort, etc category..
    also, will ufc push him for title shot if he wins impressively? will he still be marketable?

    I don’t like him as a person but I love his fighting style. I’m excited.

    He bit off a lot that’s for damn sure.

    Should be a fun standup battle of styles.

    I predict he will have a hard time dictating distance against Sandhagen, being so out of practice.

    Needs to get to the back of the line.

    Him being matched up against Sandhagen is a joke. Rewarding him for cheating.

    At 35 or 36 I doubt he has the same speed. If he wants to beat Sandhagen I think he needs to implement some takedowns. Think I'm going to fade him, but I would like to see him win.

    Pretty much how I feel about him.

    A slap on the wrist while other sports ban for life if you pop for EPO (PEDs in general).

    Lance Armstrong banned for life and all he was doing was biking.

    TJ in combats sports with a style that relies on high work rate, pushing the pace and never ending endurance and happens to Pop for EPO which would allow him to fight with that style without any worries of gassing or not recovering.

    UFC = we want to be looked at as a major sports org and better than boxing but we'll give PED cheaters a pass.

    Considering the title and interim title shots they just hand out, and the freakshow fights they set up, this is probably one of the more reasonable comeback fights in recent memory.
    I agree with you in principle but the UFC isn’t in the business of promoting fighters who are the best or most deserving.

    Anticipating a Barao-esque losing skid now that TJ is on notice for PEDs. The lay off and the age factors into that as well.

    That said, maybe TJ will get the Pico Jones treatment and essentially be allowed to juice from now on. If that's the case, champ again end of the year.

    Same here. Not necessarily a fan of the person but definitely a fan of the fighter. Remains to be seen if he will be the same fighter though. A lot of pressure to perform because all eyes will definitely be on him.
