    That knee to the midsection was just brutal. You can watch her dig the point of the knee in close to the ribs.

    Bigfoot looked a mess. Arms are much smaller, gut was flabby. And he gets TKO'd within seconds.

    TRT is a helluva drug.

    Damn. Crane style kick by Overeem under Arlovski's chin caused him to dislocate his own toe.

    Mayweather said it's not fabricated and that he put it out there. Now Conor tweeted a promo poster for it. Not saying its going to happen, just saying its not completely fabricated.

    Watching the prelims, omg that Emmett dude had a compound fracture in his ring finger. After the fight he's showing it to the camera and the fucking bone is just chilling out there.

    And he looked pretty damn good beating Tuck. He pretty much outclassed him boxing.

    Hopefully this means Dana will soon be gone

    http://espn.go.com/mma/story/_/id/15503004/ufc-owners-advanced-talks-sell-promotion

    The owners of the UFC are in advanced talks to sell the business, sources told ESPN.com.

    At least four bidders -- including WME/IMG, China Media Capital, The Blackstone Group and Dalian Wanda Group -- are believed to have submitted bids for the organization. The winning bid, should things proceed, is expected to be for a valuation of in between $3.5 billion and $4 billion, multiple sources with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN.com.

    "As a private company, we don't discuss speculation or rumors related to our business," said David Sholler, vice president of public relations and athlete marketing for the UFC.

    Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor.

    Rousey and McGregor each headlined three UFC events in 2015. Rousey's title fight against Holly Holm in November set a new company attendance record at Etihad Stadium. One month later, McGregor's title fight against Jose Aldo in Las Vegas drew the promotion's second-highest gate receipts in its history with ticket sales grossing more than $10 million.

    Other bidders said to be in the mix are WME/IMG, which owns media properties and represents athletes, including former UFC Rousey, the former bantamweight champion. Blackstone Group is also believed to be a bidder. A senior executive at the private equity firm, David Blitzer, owns a minority stake in the New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia 76ers and British soccer team Crystal Palace.

    Another bidder is state-backed investment firm China Media Capital, which, in October, beat out Dalian Wanda and national broadcaster CCTV to win the broadcast rights for the Chinese Super League, the highest level of soccer in the country. In December, CMC, with another Chinese investment group Citic Capital, bought a 13 percent stake of British soccer team Manchester City for a reported $400 million. UFC executive vice president Garry Cook was CEO of Manchester City from 2008 to 2011.

    It's not surprising that the leading bid is said to be from China. Chinese companies have made $110.8 billion worth of deals in 2016 compared to $106 billion for all of 2015, according to Dealogic, a financial markets data provider.

    ESPN.com MMA staff writer Brett Okamoto contributed to this story.

    Fedor says it's about 8 years too late for him.

    The thing that scares me about this is that the Fertitta's and Dana had the built in ties to Vegas. So keeping alot of the events in Vegas and stateside have never been an issue. But Chinese companies/billionaires buying up the company? That screams to me ALOT more fights in Asia. And if so, I'm not down for that, at all.

    Why would you want Dana gone? He can definitely be hyperbolic and favors some fighters too much (but De La Hoya will favor Canelo more than his other fighters, just part of the sport), but he understands the sport and promoting the sport better than anyone. And I like that he can brutally honest compared to say Scott Coker, boxing promoters, or other league commissioners.

    Anyways, I wouldn't be surprised if the Fertittas put it in the contract that Dana needs to remain UFC President for at least so many years since he's the one that convinced them to invest in the organization.

    I would have enormous fears if Lorenzo and Dana were gone and the Chinese brought it someone else.

    Dana has an awful temper and treats most people like shit. He lets his ego and his temper get in the way of business.

    I bet any deal requires Lorenzo sticking around for a year or two to ease the transition.

    Why should I care if he treats people like shit? I'm scared to death that UFC will turn into boxing where promoters are more worried about protecting their fighters than setting up the fights that the fans want. Dana has been great for the UFC, imo. Most people would have caved to Conor recently. Dana didn't and I'm cool with that.

    Dana routinely shits on his guys and throws them under the bus. Lorenzo is the unsung hero of UFC because he constantly has to fixed shit Dana fucks up.

    He's the biggest show in town and can make them do what he wants. I prefer his set up to boxing where the boxers and their promoters/agents have all the power.

    Dana White: If Floyd wants to fight Conor, call me Floyd.

    I think Dana is saying that as long as the UFC gets its piece of the pie, the company doesn't care. Since Conor is under UFC contract, the UFC would have to be involved in the promotion of the fight in some way.

    If it's a boxing match, I'll watch a choppy internet stream just for curiosity purposes just to see how long Conor can last. If they can come up with some sort of hybrid fighting rules between the two sports, I'll grab my popcorn and give them my money to watch this.

    When Cyborg said she couldn't safely make a cut to 135lbs, I think it's safe to now believe her. She weighed in at 139lbs today and looked like absolute hell. Her nutritionist said she will be upwards of 170lbs for her fight tomorrow once she eats and rehydrates.

    Bellator MMA has made a couple of key changes to their championship lineup.Will Brooks, previously the reigning Bellator lightweight champion, has been released by the organization while Vitaly Minakov was stripped of his heavyweight crown. MMA Junkie was the first to report the news. MMA Fighting confirmed it with Bellator officials.

    "It was very simple," Coker reportedly told MMA Junkie. "Will Brooks' contract is ending, and we made a decision not to renew it. We're going to give him a full release, so we're not going to be in the Will Brooks business any longer."


    Brooks, 29, told MMA Fighting his contract with the organization was set to expire on July 15th and he intended to pursue free agency.

    The American Top Team lightweight enters the open market with a 17-1 professional record in MMA. He was the season 9 lightweight tournament winner and captured the interim lightweight title against Michael Chandler in May of 2014 at Bellator 120. He won the vacant lightweight title also against Chandler at Bellator 131 in November of that year. Brooks defended his title twice, most recently against Marcin Held atBellator 145 in November of 2015.

    According to Coker, Minakov will remain within the company for the time being, but has been stripped of his heavyweight title due to inactivity. Minakov, 31, remains undefeated at 17-0, but hasn't fought for Bellator since defending his title for the first and only time, doing so at Bellator 115 in April of 2014. Since then, he's competed three times for the Fight Nights promotion in cities across Russia.

    If this first fight is any indication, it's gonna be a rough night for the non-Brazilian fighters. Turkhugov has been hit two times with kicks to the balls, and both times the ref has ignored it and told the guy to keep going.

    Rob Font was beat after 20 seconds in the first round. Hate to see someone get so tentative and neutralize himself. Of course lineker may beaten the snot out of him anyway, but Font didn't show anything.
