I'm glad to see GSP back as he was the first fighter I really followed in the UFC but I don't think he'll be nearly the same fighter he was. Wasn't it PTSD or something that caused his long lay-off as well as physical injuries? I can see him getting past an ageing Bisping but falling at the next hurdle.

I think it was a combination of things; some injury hangover, frustration at the doping policy, general feeling of needing a break, etc. I think he's said though that if he comes back it will be for 'big' fights, not to go on title runs, so if he wins the MW belt I don't think he's looking to defend it (which is why I don't agree with this fight).

Khabib is a beast - hoping for wins for him and Thompson.

As good as Khabib is, his ties to Ramzan Kadyrov and Akhmat MMA have really soured my opinion of him. I guess its probably hard to turn down requests from a dictator when you live in his country and all, but its still pretty shitty. Hope Ferguson strawberry floating schools him.

The Khabib fight is off :fp:

UFC 209 SEMI-MAIN EVENT OFF DUE TO KHABIB'S WEIGHT CUTTING ISSUES
BY DAVE MELTZER | @DAVEMELTZERWON | MAR 3, 2017 11:23 AM
TWITTERFACEBOOKGOOGLE+

The Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson fight scheduled for tomorrow night in Las Vegas, one of the most anticipated fights of the early part of 2017, is off due to weight cutting issues with Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov was hospitalized in Las Vegas while cutting weight and had until 11 a.m. local time to get on the scales and weigh-in. Doctors wouldn't allow him to fight and he failed to weigh-in. Given the procedure of putting someone on fluids when issues are with dehydration, it makes it almost impossible in those situations for the fighter to be able to make weight.

All other fights on the show are official. At this moment, it is not clear which undercard fight will be moved to the PPV.

Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson was scheduled as a five-round fight for the interim lightweight title, with a shot at Conor McGregor at least in theory going to the winner. It was the number two bout for UFC 209, behind the Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson main event for the welterweight title.

I don't get how you can be so irresponsible with cutting weight on one of the most important nights of your life. Surely you're prepared by this point?

Three times this fight has been cancelled. Twice by Khabib, once by Ferg. They're possibly getting Michael Johnson as a replacement tho, hopefully we get something

Anyone bothered about the Haye v Bellew fight on Saturday? I think it should be pretty good.

Johnson's just posted on Twitter that Ferguson's turned him down so seems unlikely now sadly.



I'll hopefully be able to catch the Haye fight on Sunday before seeing the result, quite looking forward to it. Haye's a total knob but some of his chat's been so overblown it's made me chuckle. Haye will win, I've no doubt. Thinking rounds 8-10 stoppage.

Oh ffs "Halabeeb". Dude's pull out game is strong. That's the fight I was most hyped for.

Ferguson fighting anyone else or has fight been fully called off with nothing to replace it?

Sounds like they offered him Michael Johnson, but he declined because it was for less money than vs Khabib. Fight's off, no replacement.

The UFC are strawberry floating dicks, they'd still have made stacks of money even if they had offered Ferguson the same terms for fighting Johnson.
