This card went to shit in a hurry. First JDS fight is off now, Mighty Mouse's fight has been pulled because Borg is sick.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Yea, I don't even think this is worth a bar tab now, much less buying the PPV.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

I can attest to the fact that it wasn't worth a bar tab. Dos Anjo's and Cejudo looked like beasts though. The main event was a snoozefest.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Nunes is taking the Woodley and GSP route of playing it safe once they get the belt and start making money. They don't want to run the risk of losing the belt and taking the pay cut so they put on these boring fights that go to a decision.

Jones B sample also tests positive. His career is effectively over.

Did you mean his career is effectively still over, considering he doesn't have a fight of record since the first Cormier fight almost three years?

Not correct, Jones beat OSP in April 2016 (he was supposed to fight Cormier but Cormier pulled out with an injury)

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

I wonder what his next move is. If he can get out of his UFC contract, he can still fight places that will turn a blind eye to whatever ban he gets. Like Rizin, M-1 etc. Maybe even against guys like Phil Davis and King Mo. I'd like to see him keep fighting, even if he is a sociopath.

You're right, that drug test failure was out of competition shortly after that fight so the result stood. He has been suspended so many times the past few years they all run together in my mind.
