I think most fighters that face Chael realize he is putting on a show (and making them a lot of money in the process).

Bad news, fellas. The long awaited clash between Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson has been cancelled. Tito Ortiz has an injured neck. I'm kind of surprised. Ortiz has been very durable his entire career. I suppose he was due for some bad luck. It is a shame because I, like everyone else, was super pumped for this fight. Neither man has lost 4 fights in a row, so you know both would be on their A game.

That's good news. The rest of the card will be moved to Spike. 2 title fights on free TV! I'll watch it on internet stream anyway. But Bjorn should be relieved he won't have to worry about a PPV buy rate flop.

Don't really care about Tito but I'm a Rampage fan so I was looking forward to seeing him fight again. Too bad.

Chandler/Alvarez is the better fight anyways and now that's going to be the main event on Spike. Can't complain about that.

A favourable match up for Gustafsson so they can do the Jones fight again. I don't mind it.

Vitor/Machida..if Vitor beats Hendo...Dana really doesn't want Vitor near the belt. Hes done more than enough to earn a shot at Middleweight but the TRT thing is holding him back.

Vitor-Hendo fight is at 205 so it shouldn't have any bearing on the 185 title fight. Vitor would never agree to fight Machida but it would make a sick Brazil event.

who cares about lil nog vs gustaffson being announced theres gonna be an injury and im glad that cormier isnt fighting gustaffson.

if vitor loses at 205 thats still gonna affect his 185 status and i believe dana already mentioned that in an interview right after the match was announced.

Mousasi asked for Lyoto but I think Dana said he wants Lyoto-Vitor. All would be very interesting fights. If Hendo beats Vitor you could make a strong case that Lyoto deserves the next title shot, so then Vitor-Mousasi would definitely make sense. If Vitor wins I think he has to get the shot next, so then they could do Lyoto-Mousasi.

I don't like Gus-Nog at all. Just not interesting to me. Gus will walk right through him. Ultimately they want the rematch though which I understand, and this just serves as a fight to keep Gus active, so I get it on that level.

I dont think Mousasi or Vitor have much for Machida tbh.

Which begs the question...why not just do the Gustafsson/Jones immediate rematch? They could have then had Glopver fight Cormier for the next contender. They almost had Cormier/Gustaffson, which would have killed off one of Jones' two most interesting opponents. Think about this as well: if Silva crushes Weidman and wants to fight Jones, then Gustaffson is stuck spinning his wheels even more and a mid-thirties Cormier is just getting older. What a freaking mess. They should have either had Gustaffson get an immediate rematch--or, if they felt he didn't deserve one, they should have giving him a real test. They are trying to have the best of both worlds, while risking it all blowing up in their face (see: Lil Nog/Evans, Overeem/Silva, Fedor/Silva, Pettis/Guida etc.)

No one coming off a loss should get a title shot unless he is the previous title holder.

Only thing worse than giving a guy coming off a loss a title shot, is giving the guy coming off a loss to that same person a title shot.
