    He took no damage from Darrion Stallwell. I'm sure he's ready to fight right now.

    Still training camps alone are taxing.

    But 3 fights in 4 months? I'm not complaining.

    Not gonna lie, I saw this title and legit thought that Lil Pump had a fight lined up. Wouldn't put it past Rizin to do such a thing <45>

    if he fought in UFC again he would just get 2 fights per year, 3 only if he can accept a short notice

    UFC is to generic, you can not be yourself overthere, if you need some more cash you need to be someone like Ngannou or a thrashtalker

    Victor Henry seems the most likely candidate, current DEEP BW champ, took the title off Yuki Motoya earlier this year in a great fight

    Henry is a good opponent, but would still be a disappointment. Nobody thinks Henry has a meaningful chance of beating the Gooch.

    this is a stay busy fight for Horiguchi between his Bellator tour in the summer and whatever he does at the end of the year, I didnt expect them to swing some elite champion.

    Would it be crazy to do Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Kazuyuki Miyata?
