    You can say that again.

    Nick and Nate are pretty much celebs in the current UFC.

    A few stars on the rise with Rose, Ngannou, Cyborg, Khabib, Tony but still no where near what the UFC previously had with GSP, Brock, Conor, Ronda.

    I think Khabib can be a legit worldwide superstar if the UFC would get behind him a little bit.

    Fuck yea


    I posted that because at the time I read it I had just read his bullshit quotes about Jones. I was thinking, "this guy needs to not speak." He seems so scummy. I'm a hater for sure. Dana is douche but this guy is evil.

    I prefer gentlemen's agreements when it comes to PED use. I do find USADA to be a bit excessive.

    It's whatever with PEDs to me. I just want to know what I'm watching and both fighters need to know what they are up against. However, if the UFC created an agreement with a drug testing agency and approved the procedures and banned substance lists with a signed contract, then they should STFU when every fighter fails for everything. They hired these assclowns to do this.

    Yes, but there is probably 10 or 12 fighters that would be top 5 draws.

    10-12 UFC fighters are the top 5 draws?

    That's a lot of draws with a lot of ties.

    There are plenty of people the UFC could get behind and promote. it depends on who they want to promote.

    i find it ridiculously excessive and frankly completely unnecessary. i remember back then saying that the UFC should stay completely out of the testing shit because it put the onus on them when someone fails.

    I think it was a huge mistake to do it.

    there is no reason to test fighters out of competition.

    Well, clearly one reason to test fighters out of competition is to catch fighters cheating when there's no fight camp, but I get your point.

    Is Cyborg in the discussion? She just headlined the end of the year card.

    I think we'd all love to see what Nate could draw as a headliner without Conor. But I dont think that will ever happen.
