    A) the mere fact that 2 guys that haven't fought in a year and a half, and it actually makes some sense to have them fight for a title should tell you all you need to know about UFC LHW division.
    -----tell me again how they are better off without Bader, Moose, Phil Davis, etc

    B) the mere fact that they'll trust Jones in a main event, a title fight, should tell you all you need to know about UFC's marketing arm (or lack there of)

    C) If there ever was an argument for going ahead and cutting up the weight classes its this shit. That since belts don't mean shit and anyone can get a title shot simply because they are available to fight, they might as well make 12 weight classes and have a belt on the line every event.

    A sick dream-like scenario for me would be Jones beating Gus, facing Brock for the heavyweight title, beating Brock...then failing another drug test to become the FIVE TIME...FIVE TIME...FIVE TIME...FIVE TIME...FIVE TIME...stripped UFC Champion.

    I'd rather he lose both fights then fail and go away.

    I’m assuming he has a free pass st this point. After the recent change of rules and opacity of the testing/disciplinary process, that kid won’t test positive for anything again.

    You don’t think DC was consulted? I think he was consulted and decided to do the Lewis fight and the Lesnar fight and be done with MMA. I don’t think they would just strip him.

    Right, because the UFC is and has always been the most transparent organization and would never let their fighters find out something related to their careers via third party...

    I agree they’re a bunch of dirty bastards but I don’t think it’s coincidental DC is booked at HW and right after Jones/Gus is for the 205 pound title.

    I completely agree with this. That new policy was put in place to protect the marquee.

    There is another quote in that story that you are conveniently ignoring because it doesn’t support your narrative that DC is cool with getting stripped.

    Are we just going to ignore the fact DC lied about his broke hand keeping him out until 2019?

    I doubt he's really cool with it, but he's a company man with one foot out the door.

    If he doesn't want to lose his desk job he'll tow the line.

    I’ll have to find it but he said he can’t make a fist then a a few days later there’s a video of making his fists doing the pump cheering thing

    Disclaimer: I don’t mean beating off

    Did Daniel Cormier exaggerate his hand injury to avoid a rematch with Stipe?
