    Oh shit, Whittaker is out with a hernia, Adesanya Silva is the new main event.

    2 things - hopefully Bobby Knuckles heals up real quick and they can just move the fight to another event. Hopefully they don't make up an interim title for tonight.

    EDIT: My god this is a weak card now.

    He is so unlucky with injuries the poor bastard, he must be the champion that has made the least cash in the ufc (actually probably Cejudo, but he hasn't been champ for long)

    Damn was looking forward to that fight. Oh well Izzy Vs Silva will hopefully be entertaining.

    I actually wish they'd let that happen but there's no chance and Cowboy knows it.

    Colby Covington is a POS but I had to appreciate his feedback on this situation.

    Who cares if @RobWhittakermma's intestine is stuck in his abdominal muscle and that @KelvinGastelum is a vile, disgusting leper. Uncle @DanaWhite is giving you guys a f@!k'n opportunity, You gotta answer the call!!!
    And lol Chael:

    On ESPN Radio, @ChaelSonnen tells @arielhelwani that Bellator has given him permission to step in and face Anderson Silva if the UFC wants to do Kelvin Gastelum vs. Israel Adesanya.

    Chael says that he requires a mouthpiece, gloves and an XXXL size cup.

    Great fight! That was really high level I felt, lots of skill and thought on display from both fighters, plus Silva really showed up. I found the respect afterwards strangely emotional to watch too, something about fighting your hero just gets me.

    Yeah I really enjoyed it too. As old as Silva is you just can't take risks with him as he can still put you straight to sleep.

    First fight on prelims was the best though, what a scrap.

    I really enjoyed that main event.

    Yep went much better than I expected. I think Silva could have stolen it if he hadn't stood there taking shots with his hands down. It used to work when people were scared of him, but he's very hittable now.

    Jaysus, from the weigh in for this weekend. On a scale of one to ten, how well would you say Invictaís drug testing is going?

    Sky managed to fuck bellator up and my recording cut off at the end of Nelson Vs Crocop.

    Looks like it was working as intended as it had a 2 hour slot and my recording was 2 hours.

    Ouch.

    So what next for Ngannou? In fact what next for anyone at the top of Heavyweight? It has pretty much been confirmed that DC has his next three fights lined up, although Stipe isn't doing his case any favours so I can see him getting bumped.

    Such a shame. I think that's it for Cain now. Barbarena vs Luque was indeed the best fight on the card.

    Yeah he is just broken beyond repair, although I guess he carries on because he hasn't made any money for years. Unless he was very careful with his early earnings as he has only fought 5 times in the last 6 years.

    He's also been doing a bit of TV work/acting. Wouldn't be surprised if he heads down that route completely.

    It would probably be best for him to do that. There isn't anything stopping him coaching but he isn't getting any younger and it's not like his body will fix itself now.

    I was a bit disappointed that Francis didn't seem to get any credit for the finish, he landed a great uppercut on Cain that sent him down and started the whole mess off.

    I dunno, looks a nothing punch really, his leg just buckles underneath him.

    I have no doubt Ngannou would have won anyway as Cain looked a bit lumbering in the short time of the fight there was. A pale shadow of the amazing athlete he once was.

    I've not enjoyed having a UFC event broadcast early Monday morning.

    Despite staying off all social media this morning, I still had the fights spoiled for me by other online sources.

    There's no way I could have stayed up to watch it live, and watching back fights where you already know the outcome isn't exactly fun.

    Doubly infuriating that the Bellator event Sunday morning was so lacklustre. I would much have preferred the two events to have switched slots.

    Yeah, it's annoying. I got up early this morning to watch the main card as the chances of the fight getting spoiled by mainstream media were too big.
