    Tonight is Joe Silva's final event. He won't be around anymore and Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard have taken over his duties.

    Did Goldberg and Joe silvas contract possibly just expire at 2017 and WME simply chose not to renew or Goldberg/silva didn't renew?


    Vs WME firing everyone? Maybe these are just two big names that chose to pursue something else?

    Or no?

    When did Mick Maynard come aboard? Has he been there, or did they poach him from some where

    Random guy was a TUF contestant. He's actually not bad.

    Over the years one of my biggest issues of Joe's matchmaking was his high placement of TUF fighters and giving them better fights and placement on the card instead of scouting and giving it to fighters that were looking good. It looks like the trend will continue. Yes TUF gets some eyes but i feel they completely overate the shows popularity as to fans wanting to see the fighters. It was good for the first 5 seasons of TUF but the last few years it doesn't seem to mean too much imo.

    Legacy FC. He was publicy announce as being with the UFC at the end of September. I'm not sure if he's made any fights that have already happened. I know Rumble said he was going back and forth with him about fighting Arlovski after DC got hurt. They had a little issue but it all seems to have been cleared up.

    Fuck Joe Silva. The UFC brass has ruined the organization. Title shots mean nothing, rankings mean nothing.

    The UFC is a joke, and it's because of idiots like him and Dana. They're whores sucking dick for money..
