If anyone hasn't seen it it's worth checking out the Michael Chandler vs Benson Henderson fight from Bellator at the weekend. Weird seeing the photo of Scott Coker, Fedor, Rory MacDonald and GSP at the event as well...
In other news, I saw that Bisping's next title defence is against Romero next year. Anothing strawberry floating drug cheat.
And Ronda's movie projects have been canned; one because they had doubts about her acting, and the other because of the script needing re-doing or something. She's blatantly going to end up in the WWE or something.

The closest I've come to seeing a F&F movie was one time when I was on a plane and the guy next to me was watching one. All I remember was Vin Diesel driving a car out a skyscraper window and landing through another skyscraper window. gooseberry fool looked Oscar worthy.
Bad news about DC. strawberry floating AKA need to take a look at their training methods for real. They essentially broke Cain and now are well on the way to breaking DC
Haye seems to have a route back to the top mapped out, at least until AJ's superior power probably does for him. He was always a skilled boxer but think that's still a further damning inditement of the current heavyweight boxing scene.
Conor McGregor is no longer a two-division world champion. At least, according to the UFC.
The Irishman, who also holds the UFC lightweight belt, has relinquished given up his featherweight title, the UFC announced Saturday night during the UFC Fight Night 101 broadcast.
Although the UFC says McGregor has given up the featherweight belt voluntarily, sources told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani that McGregor never agreed to that decision. Regardless, the UFC has the right to strip the belt from McGregor.
Jose Aldo, who won the interim title back at UFC 200 in July, defeating Frankie Edgar, will now take McGregor's belt and become the undisputed 145-pound champion.
Additionally, it was announced that Anthony Pettis vs. Max Holloway will now serve as the main event of UFC 206, replacing the light heavyweight title fight between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson. Pettis and Holloway will battle for the interim featherweight title in the main event of UFC 206, which takes place on Dec. 10 in Toronto, Canada.
The whole thing is a strawberry floating joke. I sound like a broken record, but:
1) Why has Conor been allowed to go a year without defending the Featherweight belt 2) Why has Aldo not been given a rematch. 3) Why was Conor allowed to dick around fighting Diaz - twice - rather than defending his belt. 4) Why the strawberry float as Pettis and Holloway fighting for an Interim belt? Why not just the #1 contender position?
Blows my mind how they've strawberry floated up the Featherweight and Lightweight divisions just to pander to what Conor wants and to follow the $. Such a strawberry floating joke.

So he can get two belts

The whole two belts thing was a joke. It was all Conor wanted and because he's a cash cow the UFC babied him and let him do whatever he wants until he got them. There's still a pretty big question mark over the whole thing for me anyway because he never even defended the damn FW belt. Must be the only 'champ' in history to never once defend a title before losing it.
