Looks like Jon Jones' next title defense won't happen in Montreal as many predicted but "Maybe April" according to Dana White. Also, if Rashad beats Davis and isn't injured, he'll get the fight over Hendo.

I could see a little black on black violence going down April 21 in Atlanta.

We were supposed to see some "Black on Black" crime at 114 and it never happened.

The only crime that night was a million people being defrauded out of 45 bucks.

Oh I remember, that card was beyond crap and all the fights sucked too. When Dan Miller is in the co- main event, it says ALOT...

Munoz is injured and out of the FOX fight! Now it's Chael Sonnen vs Mike Bisping jan 28th and the winner will fight Anderson for the title.
I was really looking forward to the Sonnen/Munoz fight. Atleast Sonnen/Bisping will provide some nice trash talk going into the fight.

I don't think the outcome will be much different though, Sonnen wins via decision.

I wonder who will replace Bisping for the fight with Maia. Palhares?

Pretty interesting day in MMA. King Mo tests positive for steroids, Munoz gets replaced by Bisping, and the Montreal card is now being postponed.

Man, I don't know who to root for in that one. On the one hand, Chael smack-talking Bisping and then schooling him for three rounds would be pretty great. On the other hand, if Bisping wins then he gets utterly obliterated by Anderson Silva. Decisions, decisions....

They just ran out of fights for Montreal, nothing could work for the top of the card. Glad they did this as opposed to a poor offering.

Looking forward to Sonnen/Bisping. Hopefully Maia will still get a tough test.

I think I actually want Bisping to win, just because I am against Sonnen fighting in Brazil.

I honestly think that Sonnen is going to beat the piss out of Bisping.

Good decision to postpone that card.

Dana said Jones will most likely defend his title in April so they weren't going to have a big main event for the Montreal card. It's better to push it back a couple months rather than giving them a crappy main event.

Tom Wright told Sportsnet that the fights announced for the Montreal card will now be on the April card in Atlanta. Jones vs Evans/Davis/Henderson will probably be the main event for that card.

My guess is Sonnen wins by UD. His wrestling is too much, but Bisping's ground game will keep Sonnen from finishing it.

Sonnen/Bisping is a better fight anyway. If they can get Palhares or Stann to fight Maia then the injury improves the card.

So Weidman v Maia it is. Really good matchup, will be a great test to see where Weidman is at.

Yeah, that's a good fight.

Palhares was the first choice but he turned it down.

Kind of surprised that Palhares turned the fight down unless he's injured or something. This was his opportunity to instantly turn into a contender and get massive exposure on Fox. Weidman is interesting but it's probably too much too soon for him.

I hope Bisping KOs Chael within the first minute, Chael fails another drug test after the fight, and Bisping goes on to get KOed by Silva later this year.

That's exactly how I see it as well. But realistically, I don't see what Bisping can do to beat Sonnen. He's not going to knock him out and Sonnen is going to get him to the ground and out wrestle him.

Sonnen must be real happy right now. Not only does he not have to take a fight he didn't really want to against Munoz, but he now gets to put Bisping in his place.

Hot damn, Weidman is -265 and Maia +205 on bodog. I know Weidman is a beast, but this is a huge step up for him on short notice. Did not expect the lines to look like that at all. Hard not to bet on Maia with those odds.
