lol just saw Dana said Colby is next...Figured there would be a little more jostling back and forth than that jeez
I forgot about the fights they were tonight?
Sounds like Muhammad is fighting Rakhmonov, dude keeps getting the short end of the stick. It’s going to be Colby, or Masvidal if he wins, as you stated.At one point he looked at Edwards like dude cmon what the fuck lol
I think what Edwards is waiting is to see if Masvidal can beat Burns, he probably won't but if he does I'm sure they will do that as a title fight given the history. If that doesn't happen, I can see Colby getting it. Once Edwards sits down with his people, they're gonna tell him you get PPV pts now and Colby/Masvidal are big names. You don't wanna be fighting these young horses that nobody really knows. Rakhmonov or Muhammed just haven't really done enough to earn a title shot.
Chimaev who knows, he can't make the weight consistently probably and Dana said he doesn't expect him back until October. So I'd cross him off, think he might just move to MW.
But given $/draw, Edwards might be fine with Colby once he scans his options. You get in that top spot and fially get PPV pts and you aren't trying to find killers that no one knows.
How many UFC fans are actually paying 80 bucks for the ppv?
