I have no issue with Cormier being stripped, and I don't think DC does either. Pretty sure he's done with LHW for a while, possibly forever. Nobody left for him to beat there anyway other than Jones who he hates with a passion and probably won't fight again. He's more eager to defend the HW strap. You know, he could surpass miocic's record within his career if he stays active.

So glad Tom D pulled. Sure that was an awesome match-up but one that doesnt need to happen anytime soon. Shelby should be ashamed he tried in the 1st place.

Look at the other match-ups.....Yan vs and old man. Millender vs an old man. Volkanovski vs an old man, Harris vs an old man. Lewis vs an old man, Hall vs an old man. Megan vs an old woman....That's how you should be matching these prospects up, vs old vets, not against fellow prospects.

Meh, I dunno. Silva de andrade still has a bit left to give, that should be a slobberknocker of a fight. He's never been finished by strikes, and they are going to bang. If you were to try and find another fighter more similar to Yan in the division you wouldn't be able to....they are almost dopplegangers. Mendez looked good in his last outing, no doubt got a few good cycles of steroid cream through during his time off. He could end Volkanovski's night, has the wrestling chops and power to keep **** real.Real question is whether or not his chin and cardio holds up. Millender should win, but curtis millender is curtis millender and is good at losing fights that are his to win. so ya know... not really a lock.

I dunno, feels like a shake-up. We'll see who's still relevant, who isn't, and also if the hype trains are real. Sahping up to be a very fun and violent card.

by "they" do you mean Sean Shelby? He's gotta save room for all the old washed up fighters for the PPV. Jones vs Alex, Arlovski, BJ Penn, Condit....

@Bruce Crash Bochniak vs Dawodu is another stupid matchup. Both have big potential and shouldn't be facing one another yet.

Latifi vs. Anderson
Ilir Latifi, TKO, R2
Latifi by absolute starchage

Anderson vs. Zingano
Cat Zingano, DEC
Zingano’s takedowns and top control are ruthless, and that’s something that Anderson had trouble with in her Holm fight.

Penn vs. Hall
BJ Penn, DEC
BJ can edge out a splitty here. Hall is pretty garbage.
