Holloway's withdrawal means UFC 223 - the promotion's biggest event of 2018 - is now down to just nine fights, after a backstage melee involving McGregor saw three bouts scrapped on Thursday night. The topic of who he would fight next naturally came up, and obvious foils like Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor weren't the first names on his mind. It's a long story, with plenty of surprise twists and turns, but for our purposes here we can skip straight to this part at the very end - he beat "Ragin'" Al Iaquinta. This inability is further exacerbated by his willingness to sit in guard and seek out armbars and triangles, not that he is poor at these but they enable your opponent to smash you with elbows.

Now, he is on the sidelines as he deals with colitis. Instead, Little believes that leg kicks and body shots are only effective on the weak minded, and so therefore his fighters do not really throw them and will not check leg kicks at all. Also, he's only the fourth fighter in UFC history to win belts in two weight classes.

It's been reported by Dave Meltzer that GSP's fight with Bisping at UFC 217 brought in an estimated 875,000 pay-per-view buys.

Again, Khabib stated a number of times that he wouldn't agree to fight Conor unless he proves his right to be a contender.

Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I decided to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold.

Namajunas (9-3) defeated Jedrzejczyk in the first round of their first match in November to win the strawweight championship.

Personally, I have a hard time believing it's 'Khabib time' presently.

"When I talk with my father one year ago he told me his dream fight is me vs. Georges St-Pierre".

UFC needed a fresh face in the women's division with former champ and box office draw Ronda Rousey engaged in faux fighting in WWE.

If you paid attention to the whole week, it sucked. However, this lack of technical knowledge and not exceptional speed do harm his chances here.

Even UFC president Dana White admitted his brain was scrambled and he was running on fumes when he spoke at his post-fight media availability early Sunday morning.

We heard that after the third round, Khabib's corner told him to go back to your plan.

"Why not? Me vs. Georges St-Pierre".

"No more fake champions, no more champion who never defend his title or something like this". "If the UFC asks me: Tony, Conor, or Georges St-Pierre..."

On Saturday, Aubin-Mercier proved that he's there by demolishing Evan Dunham in less than a minute.
