    My question: Why was DC stripped of his LHW belt in the UFC?

    My question - what is your opinion on PEDs related to skills, ie, do you think they improve striking or grappling etc.

    He was stripped already? I thought he won't lose his belt until the door closes behind Jones and Gus?

    Slow week without any UFC on, eh?

    Here is a humongous question for you guys!

    Who is the biggest threat to all of the UFC champions in their respective divisions!?

    jei feel free to delimit or shorten this question however much you want!

    Could only do Bantamweight-to-Middleweight, for example.

    Why do they suspend dirty fighters but not the dirty ref Herb Dean?

    Some consider Fedor a GOAT but some argue that he and other fighters from Japan were "exposed" in American soil. Whats your view in this argument?

    So what do we do about situations like the Hooker-Barboza beatdown? Should we give refs a greater power to stop one-sided carnage? Or should the corners hold that responsibility, but how would thay even be convinced to do that?

    Or is the answer just to ban Dan Hooker from the sport for being to damn tough?

    Hi Ant.
    Cybog versus Nunes. Looking forward to this one! Cyborg's the favorite. Rightfully so considering her record and great cardio. Amanda Nunes is coming up in weight. She hits hard.
    Besides just 'going for the finish' what must both do to make an exciting fight? What must Nunes do well to pull off the upset?
    Happy holidays to you & your loved ones.

    The poll is up, with this week's question asking:

    Should Jon Jones submit to additional VADA testing?

    My answer to the question is yes. And the CSAC should have made it a condition of getting licensed.

    What happened to them wanting him to get new mgmt as well? With his mgmt doing his online USADA mandatory education etc.

    It’s all corrupt in my opinion.

    The Poll has been added to the title of this thread to put the focus on it for a little while.

    Now, we know that Jones declined additional VADA testing, but that's not asking that. We're asking if he should have submitted to it.
