    Surprised to see Tyron behind the desk at the UFC preshow for the Smith/Spann card. I would have assumed he burned his bridges with the UFC after taking the Jake Paul fight but maybe the UFC is being more considerate of its former fighters.

    What the fuck are you talking about they've blacklisted countless fighters for practically nothing . I'm sure this is an ESPN move more then UFC .

    I didn't say they never held grudges, I said they don't as much as people think

    The UFC could get rid of Tyron if they wanted to... remember Tyron has also accused them of being racist a bunch of times too lol. Plenty of fighters openly talk shit about the UFC and they still work with them

    ESPN contracts their own analysts without UFC involvement.

    Glad to see it. He had bene on the desk a handful of times in the past but he'd be there once and then not again for like a year, hopefully they keep him on, I've been a huge fan for a while l and always pull for him, glad he got some stability

    Good to see. I think he does a really good job at the desk. Better than say, Belal.

    Why would the UFC get rid of Woodley? He just shared the stage with Jake Paul and got major press. They will milk this moment but this might be the last time we see T Wood working with the UFC I bet.

    Potentially. I know that Dana likes to tell people what to do, but can he really dictate who ESPN hires and fires (as implied by Ariel Helwani)?

    I think to an extent Dana has pull. The whole Ariel situation is clearly suspicious. They cut his pay and didn’t seem that interested in keeping him. Plus they kept him from going in person to events too. ESPN will never admit to it though.

    Ariel complained about censorship too
