Oh and...

 

It looks like Dana isn't fucking about with these fighters voicing their concerns. Masvidal just passed over like that? Fucking hell.

No benefit to the fans? Do you not realise how many interim title fights they're going to get to see?

New thread as Neil closed the last one. I know megathreads suck, but we need a general news thread for MMA surely, as not every discussion is worthy of an individual thread. Maybe one every year? Keep

251 looks insane. This is the confirmed main card...

E67-F1141-EA27-43-DD-9-F61-B1-FA25-E2-A6

Which means Frankie Edgar vs Pedro Munhoz, Volkan Oezdemir vs Jiri Prochazka and Ciryl Gane vs Shamil Abdurakhimov will be on the prelims!

It’s also popping up that Stipe vs DC 3 is official for August 15th now as well.

It’s all happening.

Anyone else fancy the idea of Cody Garbrandt vs Jose Aldo if/when he loses to Yan? That's the kind of fight that could be a rejuvenated Cody back into contention.

Burns is fucking bonkers and I love him all the more for it.
I know he done Maia and Woodley fairly handily, but three fights in four months is still astonishing in a day and age when nobody can get a - or is seemingly willing to - fight.
I'm sure Dana White has told him "You're my kinda fuckin' guy..." a fierce amount lately.

I know Dana said he's not going to pure Shang Tsung it and be sitting on a throne among blazing tiki torches, but I'm still hoping he will do exactly that.

Morning Kombat liked the idea of shifting the title fight to Yan/Sterling then Garbrandt/Aldo. Id prefer that right now myself, but Garbrandt/Aldo at any point sounds fantastic.

You know he will go full Han from Enter The Dragon.

With Megan Olivi feeding him grapes. Well, probably Wotsits in his case.

OK, maybe we’re not getting 251 at a decent time.

Doesn’t this still work out to 3am for the main card for us? 😏 Doesn’t really matter, I’m watching this one live whatever happens. Would’ve been nice though.

In better news, looks like Khabib vs Gaethje is getting a date. 

What next? I don’t think my heart can take any more announcements today.

Assuming McG is getting the winner, you can understand why he's pissed off and fake-retiring again. That would be him until, what? December or January?

He'll need a fight beforehand.

Been a bunch of fight announcements the last few days that I’ve only just noticed. These are the ones that stand out to me;

• Davi Ramos vs Armin Tsarukyan (Fight Night - Jul 18th) 

• Derek Brunson vs Edmen Shahbazyan has been rebooked (Fight Night - Aug 1st)

• Nathaniel Wood vs Umar Nurmagomedov (Fight Night - Jul 25th)

• Magomed Ankalaev vs Ion Cutelaba 2 is back on (UFC 252 - Aug 15th) 

All been confirmed by that Marcel Dorff bloke on Twitter. He’s been breaking a ton of fights this week and they’re all being confirmed as legit so these are pretty much set.
