It was bad decision that Modafferi and Montano fought for the belt.

    When they fought for the belt. Montano had 3 wins and 2 losses. Modafferi had 21 wins and 13 losses.

    Why these bums fight for the title?

    Its better to find someone from top10 from strawweight or bantamweight who can make weight and have at least 3-4 fights in the UFC

    i think it was a bad decision to claim that Joe Riggs missed weight by a few pounds, let him drink a gallon of water, and then realize that the scale was off by a few pounds.

    freakin bum lesnar fought for the ufc title with a 2-1 record. records can be misleading.

    not to mention, nicco's 3-2 record does not reflect the 3 straight wins she earned in the tuf house against decent competition.

    It was a bad decision to introduce the 125lbs division, especially with the way they did it - through TUF.

    Whole thing is a joke

    Modafferi seems like a cool nerdy chick to hang out with.

    It was a bad decision adding another womens division to begin with.

    Yeah. She's definitely a class act. Her live chat was fun. I loved her book about living in Japan.

    And GDR v Holm for 145 belt was better?

    UFC adds unnecessary classes

    Lesnar fought Randy Couture for the belt. Nicco fought Modafferi. A win over Modafferi does not legitimize her as a champion.

    The UFC is known for doubling down instead of learning from their mistakes. Is normal. 10 more seasons of TUF on ESPN+ here we go.

    They formed it only because Bellator formed this division (Bellator champ was crowned few weeks before UFC champ) and we have results...

    Heh. They still haven't been able to list official rankings for that division since it was created. I don't know why they didn't learn anything from the mess in boxing with all the different sanctioning bodies and four or five "champions" per division. Every interim title and new division only waters down the value of the championship.

    ufc is not a real sport. people should just have that in mind before getting mad for who fights for the title. wouldn't surprise me if some day we get proof on how they rig the fights
