I heard Cejudo had to go to the hospital today, sounds like another weight-cutting disaster. He has to face it: flyweight ain't for him.
yesterday
US Olympic gold medal wrestler Henry Cejudo is out of his UFC debut match tomorrow. So that UFC 177 card got worse.

Meanwhile they gave a license to Belfort who ignored his NAC suspension in 2006 to fight abroad, no penalty. All about the $ & PR, kids.
last week
NAC's Sonnen grandstanding is clown shoes. They knew he was set to participate in Metamoris but didn't bring it up in his hearing.
last week
Just saw the Jones-Cormier dustup. Well, that's not gonna be bad for box office. Long-term though, not a great look.
last week

I'm not gonna be around tomorrow night to watch UFC on FOX (going to see Jerry Seinfeld perform) but the main card is excellent.
last week
One more thing: have no doubt Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva is the fight that'll happen when both return. Let's hope they bout stay healthy.
last week
I'm glad Nick Diaz got paid. Used the only leverage he had & got his renegotiation on his terms. Good for him.
last week
Start printing the wolf tickets.

NSAC Belfort "stand" was basically, you won't fight until Weidman's ready, & for the title in LV so we can benefit from gate revenues. Joke.

Interestingly, the 8 athletes tested during fight week all came back negative, so the EPO was out of his system by UFC 174 fight night.
