    What do you think fellas? Health officials have cautioned Olympic athletes from participating in the Summer Games in Brazil, due to the Zika virus threat that is transmitted by vectors such as mosquitoes, blood, and sexual contact. I think the UFC is endangering the health of it's staff and fighters by having events down in Brazil, and should consider moving the events to another country.

    Ready made excuse. Perfect for a Brazil card.

    Zika would make a fine addition to the book of excuses

    Perfect.

    Rockhold would claim Zika which would send Yoel into another horribly spoken tirade.

    'YOU ES AYE YOU ES AYE WHAT HAPPEN TO CHU NO FOR GAY ZIKA NO FOR GAY ZIKA DA LARD CHESSUS CHRIST!'

    Really hope Yoel doesn't get suspended, he's amazing even if he did beat Machida up. :(

    If the UFC's plan is to have pvz and sage give birth to a giant headed paperweight then yes.

    Brazil is big, and the biggest threat is in the north and northeast states.
