Holloway vs Poirier for the interim is a good fight but it leaves me a bit disappointed. How tf does Ferguson get skipped over? Is Dana getting his way having Holloway move up to LW with this being the carrot? Where to for featherweight? Ferguson vs Max or Ferguson vs Poirier makes more sense for mine.

Ferguson vs Conor will be a barnburner too though and Tony will get a money fight (Tony may have wanted) which he deserves if that's the way the UFC goes.

I guess you never really know what happens in negotiations.

Sucks for Ferguson. I hope he gets Conor, at least that would be a good money fight for him.

Can't forget that Tony already won the interim belt in late 2017.

The guy already won the interim belt, got stripped for a freak accident.
Is on one of the greatest win streaks ever in LW history.

He shouldn't have to fight for the interim again.
I agree with that, but the UFC offered him the best opportunity they could considering the champ is currently out. He has chosen not to take that fight and sitting out while someone else gets the interim belt means he will likely be overlooked for Khabib's next defense. It sucks for him, but I wouldn't say it's unfair.

Someone in the media usually gets a lead on what’s happening next for McGregor.

In this instance I think Cerrone is getting a little anxious waiting. I think this is the 3rd time now his put that Budweiser v Proper12 stuff on social media.

The fight may still happen but I wouldn’t be surprised if we here news of a McGregor v Ferguson fight.

Colby.. he's ready to fight..holds the interim belt..but no fight. I'd be angry too.
And here's why Dana has been ripping off fighters for years.. The man loves the good life and a gamble.

He was pretty unlucky, but that’s the game.

He’s the clear next in line for a title fight, both guys are calling him out and want to fight him next.

He’s losing the plot, don’t blow the chance of a shot.

Next in line yep, but he's missed a huge card here. I'd be pissed. The fact that he was ready to go and holds the interim 🤔


Dana would love to cut him. Dana didnt like getting recorded while gambling lol.

The bigger question is did Dana not like getting filmed with the hot girl next to him who immediately took off when she saw the camera? Unless she’s in witness protection there was no need to run. She must know the value of discretion. :cool:
