    Ya I feel like max is coming back way too soon. He needs to let his brain heal and get his weight in check to make sure he doesn't have any more bad cuts.

    Just my two cents it's his career and I will always room in to watch the blessed one.

    War Max!

    Interesting theory. Any proof? Was Kelvin's purse actually lower than normal? I admittedly don't know much about the finance side of the UFC but he's damn good at getting his guy's title shots.

    The UFC is giving Frankie the shot for being a good company man. He could have waited on the sideline when Max got hurt and preserved his title shot, but he took a chance against Ortega and lost. I actually applaud the promotion for rewarding him for taking a chance like that. It's not like he hasn't fought since then. He earned his shot and deserves to fight for the belt before Alexander.

    Cejudo taking a pay cut was widely reported at the time. Ali didn't even try to negotiate on his part. People close to Cejudo outside of his management team were actually telling him not to take the fight.

    Kelvin has actually been underpaid his entire career because he came into the UFC on one of these ridiculous TUF winner contracts.

    He should be making far more money by now though.

    ESPN might have asked for Frankie simply because a guy there who makes calls knows who Frankie is.

    And if you were paying attention for the last 10 years, you'd know it's very much a popularity contest you angry little bird.

    Watch when they book Ortega vs Zabit. Zabit is a legit contender and Ortega just got his shit pushed in by Max. Nobody wants to see Ortega vs Max II right now. Their gonna kill Zabit off and have no contender for the belt and Ortega has to fight 2 more times to get a title shot.

    I don’t get it are you forgetting Volk? He’s the most deserving contender.

    Yeah but timing wise wasn’t this already practically done prior to 237? Edgar was getting this shot regardless.

    Frankie Edgar dawg. Frankie always deserves a title shot no matter if he's lost or been KO'ed or whatever. That's how fucking awesome Frankie "The Answer" Edgar is, he's the fucking answer bro.

    Lol at some of you doing mental gymnastics to make excuses for UFC. Sometimes it’s ok to just say “ya you’re right it’s fucken stupid” and leave it at that.

    I'm a fan of Frankie, but yeah - the timing on this match makes it look bad. Frankie should have fough Max instead of the porier fight.

    Same thing with Stipe, the dude deserved a rematch but getting it after sitting on thw sidelines and whining for that long while DC fought makes that rematch look bad.

    To be fair, there is no one they can put in there outside Conor Mcgregor that will move the needle.

    I think this is closer to the truth than anything else.
