    Hehe and re: the Jones positive test was asked if he thought Jones was cheating when he fought him- "... all i can tell you is I had a higher juice content than Tropicana and he pushed me around easily".

    Man, did they miss the part where you get paid less in MMA?

    Diaz's trainer says they want 20-30 million for the rubber match.

    Eh, that's just his opening bid, he'd do it for a lot less. If memory serves before Conor he was on 20 and 20. What Conor has done though is shown people what they're worth. Why should people settle for being paid less if they can draw? Cormier made $1m against Jones just now. Daniel Cormier! And that's half what Jones made. Stipe is sitting out until he makes dat Overeem money. And good for them, they should absolutely get paid what they're worth if they're putting asses in seats.

    They shouldn't. But that wasn't my assertion.

    How will, say, UFC 214's take- a card with good MMA star power- compare to the Alvarez boxing one in a couple of weeks?
    My guess is Diaz want's to roughly double his previous take and get 10 million. Not sure how viable that is...

    Fair play to him taking that. I think he's in trouble.

    Khabib will probably drop out or completely miss weight.

    He'll fight, snap a tendon mid fight and then strangle McGregor with it,
    Only to dislocate his head mid strangle and be TKO'd.

    Smart move by Conor if true. All the pressure is on Khabib to make weight. He'll probably drain himself too much in an effort to prove the doubters wrong and come into the fight too out of shape to mount a serious challenge.

    Hey guys. A little off the current topic but can anyone advise me on Fight Pass? I've sacked off Cable TV nowadays but miss UFC on BT Sport. Now it seems on Fight Pass all the big events, or rather those that are aired on BT Sport are blacked out and not available. Do they get added after the event? If so, how long does that take? Any other feedback on whether fight pass is worth it?

    Think it takes 2 days to show up after the live event?

    @oldskooldeano I'm not certain on how long it takes, but you can get a 7 day free trial first which might give you an idea
    If you sign in with a proxy you can watch pretty much everything outside of the main PPV cards live, so you'd also have access to them instantly. Not sure how long that'll keep working though, but it's relatively easy

    Dos Anjos looked good last night. Just got the main event left and it's been a good ppv.

    Good win for Stephens Gilbert must be nearly done Injuries have effected him. Can't take to nunes as champion don't know why. Not a bad card even if I was looking forward to mighty mouse making a bit of history.

    It's got to be over for Gil, he's won one of six in the UFC. I don't know anyone else with a record like that who hasn't been cut.

    Dana loves him as he comes to fight. He won't be being cut yet.

    Its a shame that injuries have caught up with him I can't see UFC resigning him I think the Stephens fight was the last on his contract. Probably end up in Bellator.

    I didn't see the McMann fight but spotted this on Reddit. Such a frustrating fighter- with that base and the usual gaps filled reasonably well elsewhere she should be monstering opponents. It's been several years of MMA and she's only now In a decent camp. It shows.
