    Have interim belts and double-champs done irreparable damage to UFC titles and the way fans perceive them?
     
  6. Jose Aldo recently stated that he has 3 fights left in his career (Including the Moicano one which is scheduled to take place at UFC Fortaleza) against who would you like to see him fight in his last 2 fights ?

    Do you think that Cejudo and TJ should run it back right away or do you think they should go back at defending their belts ? In my opinion their divisions need to move on TJ should fight the Assuncao/Moraes winner since BW title picture is really messed up right now Assuncao has earned his title shot and is still getting contender fights and also FLW is wide open now and Cejudo vs Benavidez 2 should happen next. If they both get through their respective opponents then maybe there should be a rematch.

    Also a question related to my last one do you think that superfights are bad for the divisions ? I think a division can stay healthy after a superfight only if the champions have cleaned their divisions.
    For example
    LHW was dead when DC moved up also with him retiring it will leave HW without a lineal champion.
    When Conor moved up to fight Eddie it was a disaster for both divisions
    Amanda vs Cyborg wasnt that bad because both divisions were dead
    TJ vs Cejudo now with Cejudo blasting through Dillashaw that lowers the stock of BW.
    GSP vs Penn 2 was good.

    Why the hell does TJ deserve a rematch?

    Why does the UFC want a rematch?

    This makes no sense to me at all. TJ lost in 30 seconds. Neither guy is a draw, and both have contenders waiting for them. Both have contenders who have prior unavenged wins over them also.

    Can you speak on the potential of Gregor Gillespie? A lot of people are very high on him right now (including me), but the UFC continues to give him a very long and slow path to the top 10. I personally believe he's ready for the top 5 of the division. Curious to hear your opinion.

    Do you think the winner of a Cerrone vs McGregor will be given, or will deserve to be given an immediate title shot?

    Last week you said the 125 division would be dissolved no matter the outcome of TJ/Cejudo. Has your opinion changed after the dominant win by Henry?

    What are your thoughts on the look of the new UFC belt after seeing it in action on Saturday?

    How do you guys feel about the Greg Hardy Disqualification on Saturday? Does Crowder get a pas for not wanting to continue?

    What have you heard about any of the pros and cons about the quality and value of the ESPN+ service?

    Who was the saltier fighter on Saturday.....Broner or Dillashaw?

    Fedor vs Bader coming up this Saturday. Who do you guys have in that fight?

    I believe weight class realignment is key to the UFC's future, in 10 lb increments. What is your opinion on weight class realignment?

    The Trenches will be airing Friday night instead of tonight, due to Ant Walker covering the Karate Combat event live for Sherdog.com.

    Also, vote on our poll question, which asks this week:

    Who is most likely to be cleared to compete by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in Jan. 29’s hearing? Khabib Nurmagomedov? Conor McGregor? Jon Jones?
