With this filing, it virtually guarantees Rampage won't be on UFC 186 card. Too much risk for Zuffa, little chance of settling that quick.
Rampage tweeted there's no injunction against him. Not yet, but it's not "just jokes" as he says. Bellator did file.
I'd love to see UFC/Bellator pull off a trade rather than litigate re:Rampage. A much less expensive proposition & could benefit both sides.
Ronda is like Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting. "Do you know how easy this is for me? Do you have any f***** idea? This is a f****** joke."
Ronda doesn't have a peer on the UFC roster. It's Cyborg or bust to make it a contest.
How about we run it back? What's the harm?
Ronda Rousey is an awesome fighter & ambassador but I don't know how anyone can root against Cat Zingano given her hellish path to get here.
This is great MT
must-read of the day if you haven't, ESPN Mag piece on Cat Zingano's path to tonight
B. Always B. A is the choice of heathens, savages & lazy RT
Do you have this issue in your house?
I hope all you basketball players will clothesline someone driving the lane in a proper tribute to Anthony Mason. #RIPMase
Haven't seen most Oscar films but hoping Linklater wins for Boyhood just for his creative experimentation. Wait, there's fights on tonite?
Lovely evening for the furnace to die. I shall soon attempt to make popsicles without use of a freezer.
You know the winter's been brutal when it's 22 degrees and you catch yourself going, "Hmmm, not too bad out today."
I wonder how many fight camps are thinking of moving their headquarters to places like North Korea or Somalia.
Four-year ban for first offenders could be the standard. That is a very strong deterrent. Let's hope final plan reaches this original idea.
UFC announces they'll institute year-round, out-of-competition PED testing through a 3rd party testing org starting 7/1. Good step.
Damn. Will of a champ right there. Great effort from Bendo, such a veteran performance there.
That was a veteran round from Bendo & should slow Thatch down for remainder of the fight. Anyone's to win.
This pace should be no issue for Thatch. He can strike all day, Benson can only slow him by making it grueling & ugly with wrestling.
Tired but stayed up 'til 1am for one match. I think Brandon Thatch is about to do work. Tell me I'm wrong.
Benson is incredibly gutsy for taking this fight with all risk, little reward but this is gonna be a tough one for him to navigate.
Brandon Thatch's wrestling is a huge ? mark but I can't see Bendo getting past his length with much success. BT too polished striking wise.
The NBC Sports Network Twitter feed doesn't even bother to remind people WSOF is on. What does that say?
Rashad Evans: Anthony Johnson will knock out Jon Jones within two rounds
Just an FYI: UFC champ Ronda Rousey will be featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition when it's released in the coming days.
I have a lot of great followers but this absolutely made my day!
In case you don't follow him,
is tweeting out feedback given to him by doctor who runs lab that did Anderson Silva's test.
To clarify, I'm not saying assume every athlete is on PEDs. Just that when you look at a sporting event, playing field is tilted somewhere.
So we're left with either abandoning sports or accepting the cat & mouse drug culture as an unwanted but perpetual part of sports.
You can continue to fight the war on PEDs, but it will be endless. No side will ever "win."
That may seem cynical, but we're dealing with imperfect humans. Some of them are going to make dumb decisions against their better judgment.
As fans, we need to make peace w/the fact that every sporting event we watch is tainted by PEDs or drugs in some way. That's where we're at.
2015 was supposed to be UFC's year. After a good start, things have gone from trending down (injuries) to crash (failed tests) in a flash.
I finally got the name of the man who shot that Silva-GSP pic I posted earlier today: Erick Williams.
Word on the street is Vitor would only take Munoz as a late replacement after Weidman pulled out due to injury.
He did not just do that!!!!
This is what we came for. Who you got? #SilvaDiaz
Damn, Big Al boxed up an always-game Lauzon. Nice combos, lots of variety. Nice win there. That Ray Longo makes some strikers, huh?
My "Helwani Nose" shirt, of course RT
what you wearing though??
You guys paint a terrifying picture of the UFC bar scene. But tonight is no night to be scared, homies. Off I go.
Today's the first time I'm ever going to a bar to watch a UFC pay per view. What should I expect?
I feel bad for Weidman getting injured again. He is really a great guy and champion. Didn't think Belfort had much of a shot though.
The media is so dumb sometimes. I guess it's an echo chamber like many other institutions. Need to be better. Hey, how about Diaz-Silva?!
Media parrots: "US consumes 325 million gallons of beer during Super Bowl." That's 16 beers for every man, woman & child, aka impossible.

Anyone at a grocery store on the east coast? Oh, everyone's at a grocery store on the east coast. Lines are 15 deep!
Jones-Gustafsson is still the best fight I've witnessed in person so kinda bummed we won't see a rematch, but damn, AJ brings some heat.
Ref: "Fight back Alex." Then he proceeds to let him take about 35 more blows. Jesus Christ man.
As we wait for Rumble to make his bid to fight for the 205-pound belt, remember when he lost to longtime 155er Rich Clementi? What a sport.
