This is good marketing.

Bobs and Weaves

MAX HOLLOWAY AND JOSE ALDO ARE FINALLY BOOKED TO FIGHT IN BRAZIL … and it’s not until UFC 212 … on June 3, 2017. That’s about 20 months away. Can you feel my excitement ebbing as I pack it up and put it on a high shelf in my closet?

It’s time to put up or shut up #teamblessedmma

This has got to be embarrassing … especially after the effects of a dehydrating weight cut.

It wasn’t let go, actually — Lentz knocked the towel out of official’s hands when he moved to flex.

Jack Slack did a mini Friday podcast. That is evidently a cheeky thing to do.

  • Dana White says that Woodley is not booed because he is black. He also calls Woodley a drama queen. He also mispronounced Woodley’s first name. Even I know his name is Tyron. None of which hurts Woodley’s claim that he is the worst-treated UFC champion in history (as overblown as that sounds):
