    • Dana is not even attempting to deny that Conor gets the next TS at 155 if he and Khabib win their fights, and would probably give him a WW TS if he asked for it.
    • They made Yoel vs Izzy even thought Yoel is coming off two losses.
    • They are working on Cejudo vs Aldo with Aldo coming off a close lost.
    • Want to do Miocic vs DC 3 while Ngannou is coming off two 1st round KOs of former champs.
    • Dana confirmed that the matchmakers actually approached Nick Diaz about the Masvidal fight.
    They are pretty much focusing on the big fights without paying attention to the lame ass rankings, I'm probably in the minority here but I fucking love this!

    Izzy vs Yoel and Cejudo vs Aldo are straight fucking fire match ups <{JustBleed}><{JustBleed}><{JustBleed}>

    I hope they keep this trend instead of giving us No Boner vs Corey Anderson or some boring ass bullshit like that.

    Things have trended this way for awhile now, especially post-sale. The UFC now exists somewhere between pro wrestling and legit sports. The competition is legit, but the methodology of rankings and title shots is firmly in the "sports entertainment" realm.

    Khabib will make Dana work really hard for him to fight Conor.

    This is nothing new, now with way less talent coming through they certainly aren’t going to invest as much promoting up and comers and just stick to whatever will sell the most

    Lol @ Ngannou beating 2 guys that should retire is a better, more deserving fight than the only interesting trilogy at HW ever, unless AA/Sylvia counts or the hellacious deathly beatings Cain put on Junior

    Joe Rogan should be matchmaker in my opinon

    He'd match up Pedro Rizzo and Jose Aldo just to see who has better leg kicks

    At least Kimbo had to do TUF first, and that guy actually fought in other Orgs 1st. This was just blatant.

    Honestly, I agree. I got into MMA because I liked seeing insane fights, not because of rankings. And at any given night, anyone can win a fight no matter what position they are in the rankings.

    Hoe Hogan matchmaking needs to be a thread

    - vitor vs palhares to see who has best PEDs

    - dominick Cruz vs rumble johnson to see if white mans mind can beat black mans body

    I don't mind it, but it would be nice if fans here realized that THIS is why when talking about all time lists, titles won and defended aren't as important as other factors. Aldo is a legend, but not only is he coming off a loss and has yet to win at 135, he's 2-4 in his last 6 fights overall. Why would people put all sorts of stock in titles when it's obvious the UFC will pick and choose based on things other than merit?

    Might as well just make a intercontinental belt while they're at it

    Keep belittling the whole point of titles and contenders etc and eventually theres no going back cos no one will give a fuck and I dont know where that leaves you.
