    And yes, bring on the TJ questions, we know there's a lot to talk about. Most of this week's episode of The Trenches, including the Poll Question, will involve that topic.

    I’d like to know if Gillian Robertson’s dyed red hair is an homage to her being Canadian? I rewatched her fight with Macedo last night and that Brit twit Gooden called her an American. And the flag graphic was American too.

    Buffer got it right though.

    Thank you.

    I would really like for you to take a closer look at the stratagey Masvidal used vs Till. The take down faints and hand placement and stance switches are really going under the radar around here. That was a beautiful performance!

    Why did Dana White blackball that woman Sherdog journalist so many years ago. She was the only woman journalist in mma at the time, so it seems like maybe he just hates women. Which is fine, he can just hate women if he wants. I just want to clarify the situation.

    Recall, this was before he's comment, "Women will never fight in the UFC". I'm not sure if there was a sense of a theme there or what. Maybe he just hates woman but ended up feeling some political pressure so he changed his storyline and ruined the sport with horrible WMMA fights.

    But why block a woman journalist???? That's my real question. WTF? A journalist? A woman wants to work, let her work!

    At this point, is Dana too rich to care about UFC and how could that affect their business going forward?

    With TJ Dillashaw relinquishing his Bantamweight title, which two fighters deserve the shot at the vacant title?

    It is my belief that a fighter that suffers a KO with his head smashing on the canvas like Darren Till this past weekend, needs to sit out for at least 1 year. What are your thoughts on the recovery period for such a violent KO?

    Do you guys agree with Jorge Masvidal not receiving any punishment for his "3 piece combo with a soda" on Leon Edwards?

    Who do you guys like is the recently announced Welterweight bout between RDA and debuting Welterweight Kevin Lee in Rochester?

    So... Cejudo vs Marlon for the vacant belt is pretty much the fight to make... But in your eyes, has testing just become one big joke?

    The UFC recently signed FW Felicia Spencer and Norma Dumont Viana. Does that mean there are keeping the FW division?

    Thank you.

    Finally, what took so long for someone to ask a TJ question.

    The poll is officially up for tomorrow's show, with the poll question about as obvious as it could be:

    With TJ Dillashaw vacating his belt, who should face Marlon Moraes for the vacant bantamweight title?
    1) Henry Cejudo
    2) Pedro Munhoz
    3) Aljamain Sterling
    4) Other (explain below)

    Cejudo would be my first pick but Munhoz would make sense, too.

    I picked Hank, but I really only want to see that if they are scrapping 125. If they aren’t I’d prefer to see Hank defend at FLW or vacate and move up. There are challegers at both divisions and I’m sick of so-called Superfights holding up at least one division.

    So again my vote is based on unknowns right now.
