Get this man a fight. The card will become garbage if either fighter pulls out.
I'm pretty sure Tony isn't medically cleared to fight yet. He had complete reconstructive LCL surgery just 4 months ago... December is probably the absolute earliest that we'd see him fight.
How dare you call a company that is about to give Brock lesnar a title shot and has let cm punk fight twice incompetent. Shame on you
the rest of 229 was always meant to be garbage in order to make way for the main event.
He's been cleared to train for several days now. He's already back to doing his idiotic workouts.
The Lightweight GOAT is already on standby.
clam down tony was just cleared bye a dr a few days ago.
ufc 229 is trash cause conor sells it self.
bellator would of signed cm punk if ufc didn't first.
Imagine if that was No Staph Lee in there
He has to agree to the fight
Who is available at @ 155 who is worth Tony's time?
Yeah his detractors have convenient amnesia when it comes to that fight. The staph obviously had an adverse effect on his cardio but because Lee rubs people the wrong way they always fail to mention it or say it had no bearing on the outcome of the fight.
I've never heard of him turning down a fight.
I imagine he'd want to be on that card anyway.
That's fine and all, but they need a backup plan for the main event. This should be mandatory at this point with all the fights that have fallen through.
All on one card. GOAT LW card if it happens.
laquinta does nothing for me, but I guess if ferguson goes up if khabib pulls out, fair enough
He's never been in this position to turn down a fight, ever since he earned a title shot it's either been a interim title fight or a title fight on the table for him
Reports from when they tried to book him vs Khabib a few months back had him demanding the same pay as Khabib and the fight to be for the vacant title...Which he was right to do but it shows at this point he isn't just a fool who is gonna fight just anybody
I could see him taking a fight with Nate or GSP (a name) but none of those high profile names are gonna be on this card due to the hefty price tag the UFC are gonna be paying for the main event
Tony rushing back when the best they can offer is Pettis or Lee II makes no sense.
Separate names with a comma.
