    I was surprised when the UFC decided to bring back Rumble after he was indefinitely suspended for the multiple accounts of domestic violence. And I know he is innocent until proven guilty. But with all the flack people get for punching women out in elevators, etc. What is the UFC thinking, here? How bad would it look if Rumble turns out to be guilty and here he is being promoted on network television in the main event.

    Is the UFC trying to self-implode???

    Do you see this getting any coverage right now? There is a reason they sidelined and brought him back.

    No. At the very least its a co main event fight. Now if Paul Daley got signed back k to the UFC and was given main even status, then I'd be shocked.

    No, frankly most likely because the news about Rumble wasn't widespread. Casuals wouldn't know and it has all the makings of a great fight.

    the rumble domestic violence story was false and thrown out of court; thats why him headlining isn't a surprise. The girl claimed the abuse happened on a date that he was proven to be out of state and away from her.

    "I'm a dumb whore that wants money. My boyfriend which I've grown to dislike is a well known dark skinned cage fighter, let me make up some bullshit that he beat me and threatened me so I can ruin his life and maybe make some dough at the same time. Its better than hitting the street corner to make my money."

    Thirsty bitches will suck thriving muthaf**kers down for some money. Especailly when they have nothing to lose and have a good chance of winning.

    Im extremely against beating women (did 6 months for stabbing my gf's brother for stealing her money then punching her when she confronted him) but some women see monetary gain on fucking a significant other for bullshit reasons. Especially when the courts favor very heavily towards females, regardless of the circumstances.

    I've seen drug addict mothers somehow win cases on custody and child support vs their stable male partner just by bullshitting abuse by the father. Then that poor guy is stuck with 18 years of child support payments with no way out.
