The Middleweight saga continues as it now appears Bisping won't be able to fight this summer so the UFC is thinking about an interim belt fight between Yoel and Whittaker . In other news, GSP will probably get the winner of Woodley vs Maia in November. The moral is, never assume a fight is actually happening until you see both guys in the octagon and the ref says ''fight ! ''

Yep because even when it's planned, some still get injured, busted by USADA or can't make weight.

Big country is going to Bellator after 8 years with the UFC. He'll fit perfectly there, they love past their prime guys with some name/nostalgia value left.

For whatever reason, judo skills often don't translate well to MMA. I've seen quite a few top judokas, even Olympic and world championship medal winners, struggle big time as fighters. There are a few counter exemples of course ( Ronda, Hidehiko Yoshida, etc. ) .

offensively Judo rarely works in MMA, but defensively, judokas tend to be really good at defending takedowns. Alhassan is nowhere near that.

Well, they're not allowed to fight in a Gi anymore, which limits some of the weird choke options . In the old days guys used to use that to their advantage all the time.

I did some boxing when I was in college. I know Kriss E does some MMA training or at least used to at some point.

im hoping Nordine Taleb gets another shot at a higher level fighter. He's looking really sharp in his last 3 fights. Didn't expect him to amount to anything more than a mid to low end UFC fighter. He's displaying Top 25-30 WW skill levels right now.

It's been a really fun show so far, like a lot of those cards filled with lesser known guys.

Hopefully Gustafsson will gain some momentum back from that solid performance. He might still have a run or two at the belt left in him.

I've got Aldo winning a close decision in a fight of the night contender, Adonis by KO in the 7th in an easy fight for him and Alvarez by decision in a sorta boring fight.
