I skipped Romero's post-fight interview & from the sounds of it, good thing I did. G'night. #LoveStillWins
Yoel Romero brings some natural disaster level of sudden destruction. Wish MMA had him earlier, but his arc has been thrilling to observe.
At 38, Romero doesn't have time for backward steps. I feel like this is a must-win for him.
That was scary loud. I'm not going to lie, that was so crushing it made me uncomfortable. Yikes.
Crazy. Stopped. #Bellator
Looks like Justise Winslow is gonna be the steal of '15 draft. Kid's a stud but I'm assuming transition from F to wing has some GM's worried
Don't do it Knicks! Take Winslow!
Thanks all for positive feedback, &
for the invite. Felt like being home.
New York won't subject it's citizens to MMA, but somehow letting them suffer through Knicks basketball is legal. Oh, the humanity!
Had a great time seeing some old buds & talking the current state of fisticuffs. Link to the Beat
Say it ain't so, Jose. Say it ain't so.
Kimbo's kill shot
It was ugly in ways unexpected. Good effort from Shammy but don't need to be seeing him get hit in the head anymore.
Anyway, this gonna be ugly. Kimbo by KO, 2 minutes or less.
Of course my daughter just woke up screaming & crying. I've waited 7 years for this (I think). How rude!
Phil Davis rocking the cloak of invisibility. Go on with ya bad self! #WheresPhilDavis
Expect a lengthy wait before Kimbo & Shammy hit the cage. Bellator has eyes on them, they're gonna pimp some stuff.
Pitbull is always fun to watch. He brings some thunder & some drama. I dig it.
Pitbull should walk out to the "Saved by the Bell" theme song next time.
Pitbull returns the favor with a 2nd round KO. Now let Weichel come out one more time and settle the best of 3!
Weichel basically just KO'd Pitbull so I guess Rd 2 is the beginning of the rematch. #Bellator
Proposed legislation in Springfield, Ill. would ban RNC from being used in MMA competition after street murders. Guh.
Shouldn't get too far ahead of ourselves, but it looks like Lucy might have pulled the football from under us for the last time. (Maybe.)
Longtime MMA NY expert
is keeping tabs on the situation, so follow him if you're interested in the ins & outs.
A couple of NY political reporters are saying the MMA bill has enough Dem support in the Assembly to pass sometime between now & Friday nite
What a transformation for Werdum over the last few years. He's so much more complete than he once was, & now, a worthy champion.
JDS helped create the heavyweight division's boogeyman when he KO'd Werdum all those moons ago. Changed Werdum's entire career trajectory.
How is MMA heavyweight history changed if Fabricio Werdum leaves UFC 188 with wins over Fedor & Cain? Werdum can rip a hole in old narrative
James Thompson is out of his fight with Bobby Lashley next week. He will now be fighting the little known Dan Charles, who is 9-2.
Can't wait for NBA Finals tonite. I haven't been so intrigued by NBA since Knicks were good in the mid-90s, but this is transcendent stuff.
No lie, the last 2 times I turned down tix was Syracuse-UConn 6 OT hoops thriller & Pharaoh winning Triple Crown. Can I pick 'em or what?
Let me add my voice to the choir of praise for
excellent story on "The Smashing Machine" Mark Kerr
Great to see Carlos Condit back doing what he does. Looks in great shape for main event vs. Thiago Alves tomorrow.
Here are the final UFC 187 disclosed payouts, per Nevada Athletic Commission:
Sorry, I forgot to add Anthony Johnson making a $500K purse to face Daniel Cormier, who made $180,000 total ($90K fight, $90K win).
Weidman shares in PPV points, so his final pay should be significantly higher. Donald Cerrone ($152K total) was next highest payday.
Chris Weidman made disclosed $500K ($250K fight, $250K win bonus) for Saturday win over Vitor Belfort, who had a higher fight purse ($300K).

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend.
Cormier has been toiling in gyms around the world for a long time, so he deserves all of that & his moment. Respect.
I guess the coolest thing out of DC getting the belt is that he'll get some PPV points & a nice payday when he fights Jones.
Daniel Cormier, whooped for five rounds in January, is now the UFC LHW champion. (But the No. 2 LHW in the world.) #UFC187.
I'm so curious if Jon Jones is watching this fight right now.
I'm all in.
This fight is pretty intriguing. I'm thinking Rumble pulls a Chuck Liddell, uses his wrestling to stay upright & bungalows his way to a W.
Anthony Johnson vs. Daniel Cormier for the Jon Jones placeholder championship. Two studs but JJ is the man 'til he loses.
Post-TRT Vitor ain't the same lion. Pretty smooth sailing for Weidman, who withstood early Vitor barrage & dominated on the ground. #UFC187
