Leon vs Khamzat - Dec 19
Finally a fight for Leon, and I'm looking for to it. Not a top ranked guy that Leon deserves, but still a good fighter who has a lot of interest around him.

I said after the Costa fight Izzy should call out Jan. Fight is being made in the end but missed a trick not hyping it straight away

Anderson looked good until his chin got touched today. He isnt retiring. Wont be shocked if he goes full Chuck and it starts getting sad/dangerous

there are no other teams worthy
Seem like a lot of divisions in limbo right now with no meaningful fights for months.
Dana f’ed up big time by not allowing McGregor to fight in December when he wanted to.
Blanchowiz and Whittaker both got kids on the way and neither fighting until March so Adensanya was not going to fight either in December in either division. So those two divisions in total limbo and even Darren Till had to pull out of a decent fight due to injury now.
When can they do the Volkanoski and Ortega fight? That would be ideal to have in coming months whilst other divisions in waiting game to get going again.

Next 2 PPV are a disgrace. Yan/Sterling is a good fight, possibly the best coming up but main event is LOL.

Ngannou is so underused. Do a Zuffa boxing event against some scrub, itll sell and keeps him busy. Annoyed they didnt get him v Jones done when they were chirping at each other on Twitter.

Volk v Ortega is a very good fight. He looked great against Zombie. Maybe they can get that in Sydney for early Feb? Hooker, Ulberg, Crute, Tuivasa could all be ready...

People complain about PPVs but you don't think the UFC isn't trying to get guys fighting? Ngannou doesn't want to fight unless it's a title shot, that's on him. He could be smoking anyone right now.

People complain about PPV because they dont have to put PPV on. The next 2 PPV are worse than many free cards...

Theyre also not really trying to get top guys fighting. Too expensive. Notice Conor, Jones, Nagnnou etc all pushed back almost an entire year despite all publicly wanting to fight. Instead theyre running multiple seasons of DWTNCS to pad the roster with cheap talent.

Haha so they don't wanna fight they wanna get paid
Adesanya is champion and manages to fight plenty. Other guys all just want more money than they're worth for a model the UFC doesn't need anymore.

If Connor wanted to fight he would get a fight.

The last few PPVs have been very strong so no surprise the next two are very weak sell wise.

Prospects for the new year strong though.
