    I just read a report that Derrick Lewis Vs Daniel Cornier is being mulled for 230. What the shit is up with that? I love Lewis, but IMO he would lose to Cormier on his best day, and he just got fucked up. Now they want him to fight one of the GOATs on 2 month's notice? I hope he's getting paid well if it comes off.
    I think Lewis will be quite pleased with that, I'm sure it will be a big pay increase.

    Miocic is probably still more deserving, not sure why he's being overlooked, but Lewis actually has a good recent record, only losing to Hunt recently, and he's won 3 on the bounce, I'm not sure there's too many other heavyweights on a dominant streak. There's Blaydes but he's already fighting Nganou in November.

    I can't see that fight happening any time soon. I would guess those leaks or rumours are just a way of putting the feelers out or a means of helping push forward negotiations for a different fight. It's the UFC way.

    Apparently DC vs Lewis is on. Don't get me wrong, I'll be rooting for Lewis, but this is a worse idea than Bisping Vs Gastelum.

    I doubt they are expecting DC to lose to be honest...

    Just seems an odd matchup considering lewis and his self confessed not ready for it interview post Volkov fight. I really like Lewis so I'd take no pleasure in him getting his ass kicked. I'd much prefer Stipe got a rematch. Hell I'd even throw Overeem in there despite his losing streak.

    Poirier is out of UFC 230 with an unspecified injury.

    Sucks, was looking forward to that fight. Too soon to get Conor in with Nate?

    I imagine the DC Lewis fight is the replacement for Diaz Poirier.

    Ferguson vs Nate would be good.

    hmmmmm

    https://mmajunkie.com/2018/10/ufc-wants-to-strip-daniel-cormier-light-heavyweight-title

    ďI said I would be willing to fight, but it just canít happen right now,Ē said Cormier, who also holds the UFC heavyweight title. He added that a hand injury will prevent him from fighting until January.
    Black Beast also talked about broken fingers after the fight, didn't he?

    Gus vs Bones is on for 232, for the vacant (!) LHW title.

    Hopefully Gus wins it. Got robbed last time.

    Agree, but both have been very inactive. Gus could take it if OSP Jones shows up, but then what's Gus' ring rust like?

    What are the odds on bones doing something stupid after the fight?

    According to McGregors coach the plan was to tire Khabib out.... not a sound plan at all

    Feel like best Gus was 2013 versus Jones Gus. That was his peak. Whereas Jones could come back better than ever.
    Hopefully Iím wrong as seeing Jonesís great comeback squished would be amazing.

    From the BBC


    Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov have been temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) pending a full investigation into the scenes that marred the end of Sunday's UFC lightweight fight in Las Vegas.
