I'll believe it when I see it. Can't imagine Vince would be that stupid, but I couldn't have imagined that he's as stupid as he is 10 years ago, so what do I know?

Seeing Brock wanted more money pre-mania, and a UFC clause was the compromise

Also possibly a Brock in at UFC for Ronda at Mania trade off

It's definitely coming from credible sources

Skinnyfat, shit Punk, been in UFC for 2 years, 0 (zero) fights.

Has he?

 

Can you call yourself a NASCAR driver if you've never been behind the wheel?

 

That analogy also works for gay sex, if you were wondering. Which you were.

 

Shit went down at the UFC last night!! Of course a)the card was fucking fantastic, amazing fights b ) Bisping actually shocked the world, but then media shit went down.

 

Basically - Ariel Helwani started reporting on the Brock Lesnar thing prior to the event (as depicted above) - and sure enough, the Lesnar clip rolls during the show. Back at UFC 200 vs the dreaded TBD. I think it stands for Total Bad Dude. I'll try to confirm with my sources

 

my source is a piece of rabbit fur i rub on my dick

 

Minutes before the show Ariel, the unanimous best journalist in the business, was escorted out of the arena with his coworker photographers, stripped of his credentials and "banned for life"

 

Because he, an independent journalist, reported on a breaking (also confirmed and credible) story and the UFC didn't like it. They wanted it to be a big surprise and apparently felt he stole their thunder.

 

UFC are bullies and they underestimated Ariel's influence and the attention this would get.

 

Ariel is not a UFC employee - he is a journalist for MMAfighting.com, a website that covers, you guessed it, MMAfighting. Not UFC, they cover mixed martial arts. It's a sport. UFC is a promotion.

 

In 2014 the UFC took his credentials away for covering a Bellator MMA event (their competition).

 

Earlier this year, UFC pressured Fox Sports into firing Helwani (for whom he worked as a reporter) because he was openly discussing free agency (UFC fighters negotiating with Bellator or other promotions at the end of their contracts) on his MMAfighting.com show "the MMA hour"

 

UFC is owned by a Vegas casino family, they make really terrible, "gangster" decisions. Like the Reebok deal! LOL!

 

Anyways - this is getting attention outside the MMA world. dis shit blowin up like DC's visceral fat after any and all fights.

 

Imagine if the NHL wanted TSN & Sportsnet to fire their analysts for discussing contract negotiations or players looking at going to the KHL?

Or the NFL firing their 2323234233 analysts for reporting on negotiations or players looking at playing in the CFL? LOL just kidding.

CM Punk is set to fight at UFC 202, a card which will feature heavy promotion for WWE Summerslam as part of the Lesnar deal.

There is the possibility of CM CUCK getting KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT with VINCE MCMAHON AND/OR TRIPLE H IN ATTENDANCE

AIN'T GOD GOOD

A really good chance at that.  Looks like skinnyfat is doing exactly as well as we predicted when we first heard of him joining UFC, from what I hear.

My only question is - what will WWE do if they cross-promote the hell out of UFC 200 only for Brock to get walk-off KOed by Hunt in 12 seconds? How do they preserve his character's integrity after that? :lol:

Brock will eat Mark Hunt's lunch.

Prediction ref stoppage 1st rd when Brock is in full mount raining punches down on a defenseless Hunt.

Your right  Cardi

It's a huge risk vs reward proposition for the WWE either they will look like genius or to quote Y2J ignoramus .

 

Lesnar was a very different fighter after the his bout with diverticulitis Heyman say's he is now fully recovered so i guess we will see.

Mark Hunt is going to fuck him up.

 

Hay, i don't like getting hit, so you know, great idea to fight the both the best & largest striker, not to mention heaviest hitter in MMA.

 

Totally great call! He was better off fighting the roided up Overeem

I think Roy Nelson or Dan Henderson has the hardest punch.

in response to an absolute shit storm they created, the UFC has lifted the ban on Ariel Helwani - if you looked at any and all of the UFC tweets in the last 2 days, the replies are like 3 on point and 87 #FREEHELAWNI

 

They couldn't ignore it. They tried - their first tweet after this news broke, they deleted about 40 #freehelwani tweets - but then they gave up. 2 days later, Helawni spent 2 hours on his show giving his side of the past few years, by midnight the UFC backed down, but they aint happy about it; 

 

"Following a conversation with the editorial team at SB Nation, UFC will not prevent MMAFighting.com from receiving media credentials to cover live UFC events. We respect the role the media plays in our sport and beyond, including MMAFighting's ability to report news. However, in our opinion, we believe the recurring tactics used by its lead reporter extended beyond the purpose of journalism. We feel confident our position has now been adequately communicated to the SB Nation editorial team.
 
UFC's goal as the world's leading mixed martial arts promotion is to cultivate interest in its world-class athletes and events, and deliver for the fans. We will continue to introduce this sport and its athletes to new fans across the world, and we will do so by working alongside media across all platforms."
 
Ariels MMA Fighting then released a counter statement; 
 

MMA Fighting reporter and host Ariel Helwani was removed from UFC 199, along with MMA Fighting photo journalist Esther Lin and MMA Fighting videographer Casey Leydon, after Ariel accurately broke the news of Brock Lesnar's return to the UFC and the forthcoming Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor rematch.
 
MMA Fighting and SB Nation fully support Ariel, Casey, Esther and the entire MMA Fighting staff. And we appreciate the support we have received from the MMA Fighting audience and community.
 
The UFC has not been in contact with us since revoking the credentials of Ariel, Esther and Casey. But we will keep you, our audience, informed of the situation.
UFC have their heads so far up their asses it just isnt funny. 
 
Here is Ariel laying it all out there - this is fascinating and entirely worth your time, even if you're not into UFC - the story is bigger than that. It's also available on itunes / podcast app as The MMA Hour

Kimbo died.  Only 42.  Had to have been his heart.  But who knows.  I know he wasn't a legitimate MMA fighter, but he was a cool guy in real life and in the arena of street fighting boxing, he'll always be a legend.

it was his heart.

 

He was misunderstood. Media and fighters all thought the world of the guy. Scary on the outside - sweetheart on the inside.

 

Brenden Schaub tells a great story about him when they were living in The Ultimate Fighter house - this obviously didn't make the TV show, but one of the white southern guys (never became famous) was eliminated and then started drinking heavily, one night started dropping the N bomb left and right, not just the N-bomb, but some serious racist / white supremacist shit.

 

So Schaub is asleep, and he is woken up by a bunch of the black fighters, they say "Schaub, us black guys are going to fuck this guy up, c'mon man" (or something along those lines) and Schaub is like "what? I'm with you in spirit, but I'm not black?" (or something) - they're like "oh shit, our bad" and they go off to fuck the guy up

 

as they're walking away he hears Kimbo go "that's why I like Schaub - you cant tell what he is!"

My father was diagnosed with cancer today, second time in 10 years. He beat a "3 month death" diagnosis in 2007, but it was awful. He went through hell.

 

please no well wishes messages - not looking for that, I only told you that to tell you this:

 

I told Dad; well, it could be worse, at least you don't have to fight Stephen Thompson this weekend!

Run for your life Rory!!
