He's upset because he committed to this schtick and now he can't get what he wants. The UFC is looking at a few moving pieces at a time with this move. They want to dethrone Woodley, or get the most for him. If Woodley beats Usman, and Askren beats Lawler, then Askren vs Marty from Nebraska will be next for them. If Usman wins, then they have gotten the belt off of Woodley, and can play around with Colby, Usman, and either Lawler or Askren. If Woodley does beat him, then he can do a really nice big callout of Colby, and the UFC can get that hypetrain going for what would likely be the highest grossing fight in Woodley's career by a longshot.Can't believe of all people Colby fucking Covington is going off at the UFC. Weird because now Colby has to fight one guy instead of two. Is he that dumb? They did him a favor with the black on black crime.
He is a monster, there is no doubt about that. I expect him to be much better at LHW.Rockhold looked to be in a great mood on MMA Hour yesterday. Said he is walking around at 225 and is tossing people around like never before. Maybe he's found his happy balance of cutting, but not to death. Whitaker and Gastelum setting that example for people. Now if he could stop standing up straight begging for counter shots then he has a chance at 6'3 with amazing grappling.
What? Nunes was comparably big with Cyborg in there. She works relatively hard to make 135. Valentina makes it to 125 with very little effort. They aren't the same size.^^Lol, Nunes is the same size and the best female in the world. Valentina is a 135er fighting smaller women at 125.
That's a good fight, I reckon. Buildup would be fire, too. Any time Conor starts with his bullshit, Raging Al can just go "how many rounds with Khabib? I took him the distance, on 24 hours notice. How'd you go?"Conor and raging Al jabbing on social media. Would be an interesting buildup.
