What will happen next?

With the UFC and Dana staying true to the sport and only granting titie shots and interim tities to the clear cut #1 contenders in each division, which fight will happen after Khabib vs Dustin?


(Assuming Khabib wins)


:P

Well said


Conor vs Khabib vs Poirer winner and then Dana will fuck Tony more and have him fight someone like Gatheje. Which would be a great fight. Tony deserves a title shot though :tup:

Really hope Khabib stands his ground and insists on Tony.

When trying to predict things like this, keep in mind the external forces at play here: Dana's head-canon, WME's lust for money to recoup their investment at all costs, and WME's liberal Hollywood agenda. Conor fulfills all 3 so he's always in the picture no matter what.

I mean, Weili Zhang is getting a title shot because she's Chinese and just happened to win a couple fights. Dana shot down #7 Michelle Waterson as being too low-ranked but #6 Zhang is fine because China! Expect more of that in the future, too.

Basically, MMA is dead and we as a society are fucked.

No, the reason why McGillicutty gets the nod is because he gets the undivided attention from Uncle Dana

Dude I am psyched for the Zhang Andrade fight. Both women are absolute killers who fight aggressively and have the power to finish with strikes and submission prowess to finish that way

With that said


You are 100% correct. Saying Watterson is too lowly ranked but giving a title shot to another girl who is ranked lower is beyond hypocritical. Dana does not even try to hide it anymore :lol:

It's strange how the UFC always goes to China within a few weeks or a month after One Championship does. Askren headlines an mma event for One in mainland China and the UFC is there 3 weeks later, i guess they are using them as a test market or something idk


Anyways


Its dumb Zhang gets the title shot but the fight itself will be awesome most likely and filled with violence

Dana should have just said Michelle won't get the title shot because "we have big plans for Andrade in China! stay tuned!" and really the hypocrisy would not have been existent like it is now.

Hopefully Tony beats everyone at 155 gets strap and moves to 170, Khabib and GSP fight for 165 belt and Khabib lay and prays on GSP for 5 long hard greasy rounds and breaks Georgie's will for good and sends him into a shitty retirement akin to Lance Armstrong after Jon Jones rats him out with Dana's blessing. Then 10 years later GSP broke and gay has to come out of retirement and fight Penn in BKB1500 and BJ breaks him again, ties his body to a stone and drops it deep into the ocean never to be seen again.

I had to bring this up, because Joey put crystal clear why McGillicutty doesn't deserve a shot. Then he went off the deep end. I am assuming he was high AF.

Zhang's is 19-1 and on a 19 fight win streak. Just destroyed her last 3 opponents, and just beat tecia torres. Last 2 people before her that fought Torres went on to title shots, and torres last win was against overrated watterson.

While I do agree with UFC fuckery and making decisions based on entertainment and sales, this one isn't bad at all.

It's just weird when someone I've never heard of gets a title shot. This is also a blatant cash-grab for the Chinese market that UFC has already failed once.

How have you never heard of her? She been featured or talked about quite often since her first fight in the UFC. Her and the Leech have been fan favorites and built up since they started putting on very entertaining fights in the company.

I pretty much only pay attention to finishes so that precludes the vast majority of WMMA.
