    Actual question: UFC have any possible interest in an open weight masters series for fighters no longer fit to compete in an actual competitive division, yet big name enough to still sell fights?

    Who is the next boxer you see possibly testing themselves in the Octagon?

    Which fighter do you see giving Amanda Nunes a challenge these days?

    Is the fate of the 125 pound division on the shoulders of Henry Cejudo?

    What could be the reasoning for the strange call out of Anthony Pettis to Stephen Thompson?

    Do you see Max Holloway holding his ground and staying at 145 or bending for Dana by moving to 155?
    Who would make the most sense for his defense at 145? What fights make sense for him at 155?

    What kind of Cain are you expecting to see in his return? How will his style change or stay the same based on his recent trail of injuries?

    Fedor vs Bader. Who ya got?

    All solid questions, thank you, and the bolded one in particular will more than likely make its way on the broadcast tomorrow.

    Hello Ant, Jason, and any Spouses who might be appearing in the background!



    * This Weeks ESPN card is almost... suspiciously good. The UFC's career on FOX started with a similar bang but then dilapidated in wow-quality. Do you think the same will be true for the ESPN-era or will the awesomeness of this card be a hallmark of the UFC-ESPN marriage?

    * According to Tapology data, the USA's MMA regional scene has experienced a staggering 40% decrease in events held since 2013! Numbers from Brazil from a similarly steep downwards trend. What is happening -- and should I start panicking right now!?

    So. Talked to @jei earlier about Cejudo vs TJ and got me thinking... So, TJ looking lean is supposedly still around 130-135. What do you think would happen if ( for some reason ) he can't make 125 at the last minute? This is the big ESPN UFC stream debut. Maybe ( if TJ can still get cleared to fight ) change it to a BW title fight...

    Ant, what do you think about the recent Jon Jones situation? I work in the pharmacy industry and have a fair deal of information on prescribing drugs dealing with hormone levels but am no expert on "pulsing" in reference to Turinabol. Is the explanation we received reasonable or is the rumor of Jon not being clean a lot murkier than the UFC would like us to believe?

    Yeah, you're definitely going to have to go over pulsing and how no one has ever had anything happen like this "pulsing" nonsense.

    You would think AC's and USADA would still be testing him to monitor...

    And as a note, TJ Dillashaw just said that he is 128 pounds today.
