Platinum Mike Perry says that he’s beaten up Darren Till in a spa(r), and after the Robbie Lawler fight Perry plans on moving up to Middleweight to do it again. Won’t lie. Wanna see it happen.
The Bantamweight Title can get a lot clearer OR a lot murkier following #UFCFightIsland5 The UFC has yet to name Aljamain "Funk Master" Sterling as the next official challenger for Petr Yan, which leads you to think if Marlon Moraes decisively beats Cory Sandhagen; does he leapfrog Aljo? I mean, the UFC did Moraes dirty by denying him a Title Shot at Yan to begin with. Oh, and to make things interesting Tj Dillashaw returns from suspension in January. What do you think the UFC does?

BREAKING: Rafael Dos Anjos is out of #UFC254 due to a positive COVID test His opponent Islam Makhachaev has started rolling out the call outs. On the list so far... • Michael Chandler • Dan Hooker • Charles Oliveira I’d think with 2 weeks until the fight on a major PPV, that the UFC will find a ranked opponent for Islam. Or not. I don’t even know anymore 😭
Georges St-Pierre says that there’s still a chance that a fight between himself and Khabib Nurmagomedov can happen, but that the window is certainly closing as he approaches 40 years old. Here’s a summary of his thoughts on the matter • GSP feels that if he turns down a potential fight against Khabib that he may live to regret it. • However GSP is conflicted because he doesn’t have the drive to compete at the moment. He feels satisfied, but also understands that satisfaction for an athlete is death • GSP would have to go back into “obsessed mode” where he puts 100% of his focus on a presumably unbeaten Khabib. • GSP is concerned with dropping to LW. Years ago when the topic of a potential Khabib fight was raised he practiced test cuts to 155lbs which he was able to do, but at 39 he’s not sure if it’s still possible In the end the thought of this fight entirely hinges on Khabib beating Gaethje at #UFC254. After that, it’s been long rumor we that Khabib will fight once more and we all know her prefer to make his final defence against the Legend GSP

Stephens put on a Fight of the Night performance against Rodriguez in the rematch but ultimately lost a decision before falling to Calvin Kattar at UFC 249 in May. As for Allen, he’s been trending in the opposite direction with an unblemished resume since joining the UFC roster.

Although Dana White insists on pushing the narrative that Anderson Silva’s final fight will be against Uriah Hall on 10/31, Silva’s coach Rogerio Camoes believes Anderson will continue to fight Silva has one fight left on his contract and Camoes believes Silva would like to fight out his contract by headlining a big event in Brazil (post COVID) against another legend Camoes believes Silva would like another shot at MW king Israel Adesanya, but short of that who do you think would be a great matchup for Silva? There’s been rumors of a Nick Diaz rematch, Anthony Pettis and Conor McGregor. Who else ya got?
