    Do you see the UFC organization finally rid themselves of the Reebok contract and allow the fighters to market and profit off of their sponsors like they used to.

    Respect to Barboza for not complaining about the eye poke form Justin Gaethje, but it may have cost him the fight. What's your overall opinion on this issue and what changes could possibly be made to prevent these situations?

    Which fighter was more deserving of the "Knockout of the night" bonus? Gaethje or Emmett?

    What are your thoughts about illegal strikes that land during the finishing sequence? Like KJ Noons vs. Jorge Gurgel where Noons pretty much had Gurgel out before landing a questionable knee. Same with Melvin Guillard vs. Evan Dunham where Guillard landed a questionable knee at the end even though Dunham was pretty much done.

    Does Bare Knuckle Boxing have any potential at all? I feel inclined to tune in to the Lobov fight.

    Does the extended UFC/ESPN deal benefit ranked fighters who aren't considered stars? Will overall fighter pay be raised (however slightly) as a consequence of the guaranteed 500,000 ppv payout from ESPN?

    What the heck is going on with Ken Shamrock? He seems to driven into some underworld far lower than anyone of us, even @Rex Kwon Do , would have dreamed.

    Prime Injury-Free Dominick Cruz vs Prime Jose Aldo at 145 - One of the most overlooked potential superfights that never happened with both fighters having shown interest about it. Who would have gotten it done and how?


    Which one would be worse for BJ Penn ? A win against Clay Guida which will probably give him a sense that he can be still a world champion and "motiave" him to go for a few moer fights or a loss which will continue to make his record even worse and which will hurt him legacy even further.

    Unfortunately I can't view the vid in it's entirety because it's region locked to North America. The basic gist is Vince Mcmahon has the same business practice's as Dana.

    *Shitty health care

    *Hides behind independent contractor lie to marginalize fighters.

    The whole thing centered around heath care and under pay. Oliver seems to want to rally fans to basically change Vince's mind buy chanting at wrestlemania.

    There first 2:30 mins sums it up.

    Leslie Smith has tweeted about it.
