Benavidez cries about the headbutt, but i think he was more of the cause of it. He dipped in and up.

He did the same thing with Yan. He's a moron.

He also ran into Mike Perry and made a vid with him saying "Mike Perry is innocent!!"

Ronda’s back (as a manager). 

Quote

The UFC has been forced to change next weekend's main event.

Holly Holm vs. Irene Aldana, which had been set as the main event for an Aug. 1 UFC Fight Night card, has been canceled after Aldana was forced to withdraw due to a positive test for coronavirus.

As a result, the Derek Brunson vs. Edmen Shahbazyan fight has been promoted to the main event. The current plan is for it to be a three-round headliner as opposed to a five-rounder due to the short-notice switch.

The Holm-Aldana bantamweight fight was expected to be a potential No. 1 contender fight for Aldana, who had won two in a row and five of her last six fights.

——

Shahbazyan (11-0), who is co-managed by former UFC champion Ronda Rousey, is considered one of the brightest young stars in the sport. The undefeated 22-year-old has finished 10 of his 11 opponents, including his last three in the first round. He most recently defeated Brad Tavares via knockout in November.

"This kid is special," Rousey said. "He is one-in-a-generation, and I know what the f--- I'm looking at, and you know what you're looking at. And it's interesting to finally be in this time when everyone else is starting to take notice. He's such a sweet and quiet kid, but man he's a killer. When people take a moment to watch him, they'll never be able to forget him."

UFC president Dana White said: "And this is the biggest test of his career. Brunson is No. 8 [by the UFC], he's No. 9. If he can get through Brunson, and he wins this fight, it's straight killers after that. He's looking at breaking into the Top 5, which is very, very hard to do in the UFC."

Brunson (20-7) has won his last two in a row. His last UFC appearance came 11 months ago when he defeated Ian Heinisch via unanimous decision.

The event will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

"UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman received a 180-day medical suspension following UFC 251, due to the potential of a broken nose. He can be cleared earlier by a doctor following a nasal X-ray. Jorge Masvidal was given a 30-day medical suspension due to a forehead laceration."

Masvidal did gas out early, but seriously the worst damage he received were two separate accidental headbutts followed by foot stomps.

Apparently Herb Dean is trying to change his reputation for quick stoppages by letting someone get all the way murdered in the cage.

Maybe I heard that wrong but it sounds like Dan Hardy and Herb Dean just had a verbal altercation about the last few stoppages. Damn. Good on Hardy if true.

Yeah, I heard the same, then Dan was a little out of breath coming back for the interview and he said something about having to stand up for these fighters.

I miss announcers who don't flip the fuck out about every single punch/kick landed even if it isn't even that great of a land
