Seems like Dana wants Pyfer to become fast tracked. This is too soon though, Gerald has been in very solid form as of late

Tapology must have only a handful of people with the ability to make that change, and they must all be asleep or something.

I don’t get why I’m getting downvoted because I said the PPV in 2023 all look good, I’m wondering if people just hate fighting or just me In general, becuase all the PPV look pretty stacked, The Australia card is the worst overall but it also has the number 1 guy vs the number 2 guy for the first time in ufc history , 

The only thing to complain is that it cost $80, but we all know only casual pay for PPV,

Pereira vs. Adesanya II
Alex Pereira, TKO, R4
Just an FYI - Champs with more than one title defense rarely get their belt back after they lose it(not stripped). There are only a few outliers - Couture, Hughes, Dillashaw, Miocic, and Nunes. I don’t count Aldo in that list as he won the interim title and was promoted to undisputed champ, then lost to Max Holloway. Granted an Izzy win isn’t out of the realm of possibilities, but the odds say otherwise. Let’s also not act like Pereira vs Adesanya was a total wash(even though it was a clear 3-1) Alex was winning the first round before Izzy rang his bell. Alex won round two. Alex went for a ****** TD and Izzy managed to reverse it, leading to a ton of top control in the third. Izzy beat a tired Alex in the fourth, but Alex had that second wind kick in in the last minute. Fifth round, well you know… To be clear - I’m not saying the result of the last fight is automatic W for Alex. I’ just saying there were more mistakes made on his end than Izzy’s and that he can he tighten up the screws and fight a better and smarter fight this time. Mentality is a big part of anything in life. Izzy was down 2-0 in Kickboxing against Alex, but this was a whole new sport, one where he had been dominate and nearly untouchable. He had that edge going into their MMA Bout. But now he’s down 3-0, 2 losses in Kickboxing, 1 in MMA, and 2 of those 3 being KO/TKOs. Point is he can’t just say this is whole new sport anymore. He’s been beaten every time they’ve fought. He can talk the talk and walk the walk, but in the back of his head he’s got to be thinking that Alex has his number. I won’t be shocked if we see a gun shy Izzy come UFC 287 and another Pereira win.
