    Same, I still have hope that Timmy will get back in shape and get a good win streak going. Never heard of the guy he is fighting but he has a decent record, would be a nice win for Timmy.

    the next WE will be worse too

    at least there's a nice UFC PPV and a good KB event, but sure the first weeks of the year are generally poor

    He got released after he lost the TUF China Finale (which was a bit suprising to me tbh). He's already won a fight since being released an this would be his 2nd, so could possibly get a recall for the next china card.

    Likewise. I know he's not a world beater anymore, but he gets way too much hate considering what he's accomplished.

    Jianping was fighting at Kunlun Fight 5 in June, then at TUF China Finale in August and at Kunlun Fight 11 in October. I think he is still with UFC but his contract just non-exclusive.

    Any competition starring Yang Jian Ping is exciting to watch!
