Dana says early 2021 they are hopefully going to give fans an opportunity to come to Fight Island and have Abu Dhabi be the first place to have live fans.

Dana on the potential Conor/Dustin fight:

"It's 155."

"I'm not putting on a friggin multi-million fight at a catchweight, that means nothing."

"That fight means nothing at 170. Neither one of those two are ranked at 170. And it doesn't do anything in the 155 division if either one of them win cause they're fighting at 170."

UFC officials have told Leon Edwards’ team that he is being removed from the UFC rankings.

This comes following frustrations surrounding not being able to book his next fight. No comment yet from Edwards or UFC. Of course, they can do this since it is their rankings.

After the Woodley fight fell through in March, the next offer came on short notice to fight Usman in July, then Covington when Woodley fight was iffy, then Geoff Neal and then Khamzat Chimaev on 12/19. Edwards didn’t agree to those fights.

After the Chimaev fight was finally turned down, the rankings removal happened.

This has happened before (Nate Diaz), and it doesn’t mean he’s released. He’s not. But it will be interesting to see how they repair the relationship.

As for Chimaev, still no opponent yet. For whatever reason, Magny isn’t of interest to the brass so they are looking for other options right now. Do they ultimately fall on Magny? Possible. But not at the moment.

Per his manager Ali Abdelaziz, Frankie Edgar has asked the UFC to fight Cory Sandhagen next.

Nos. 2 and 5 in the division. Sandhagen, coming off that big Moraes TKO, hasn’t really discussed his next move with UFC yet,

Looks like Bryce Mitchell vs. Andre Fili will be the co-headliner at UFC Vegas 12 next week.

All previous reported fights confirmed. Only Yanez vs. Rodriguez not confirmed yet in the latest Brazilian press release.

Yo NYK - what are your thoughts on Leon opening as a +120 underdog against Khamzat? I personally think the odds are right on point and I’m def leaning towards the Chechnyan assassin over this bloke. A lot of others I know feel the opposite.

I got down on Khamzat at -110 at SuperBook when he first opened. He's getting thrown into the deep end of the pool and I love it. He's my guy and I'm not backing off him.

The thing is he will be a super square play ... All the UFC casuals have already / will pile on. They know nothing about his pre UFC career and are only going on what they recently saw over the summer.

The wiseguys will be all over Edwards and will wait to pounce, his number will keep improving as money keeps rolling in on Borz.

I have no problem being on the other side of the smart money.

Khabib retires with the:

- 2nd longest win streak in UFC history (13)
- 8th most takedowns in UFC history (61)
- 18th most control time in UFC history (1:34:47)
- Most title fight wins in UFC Lightweight history (4)


He finished his UFC career with 705 significant strikes landed and just 301 significant strikes absorbed.

That ratio of 2.34-to-1 ratio is the second highest for anyone with at least 12 fights in UFC history. The only fighter (min. 12 bouts) with a higher ratio was Cain Velasquez (2.70-to-1)


13-fight UFC win streak is now tied for the second longest in UFC history.

Only Anderson Silva's 16-fight streak was longer.

Per Khabib Nurmagomedov's co-manager Rizvan Magomedov:

Russian president Vladimir Putin spoke to Khabib on the phone today and invited him to the Kremlin in Moscow. Khabib flies home from Dubai to Dagestan tomorrow.

Good debate on ESPN.com about who is the GOAT. One guy had Khabib and the other Jones. They also had GSP in the mix. The Jones guy thought he and GSP were ahead of Khabib. I read the article and it is hard to go against the argument for Jon Jones

Khabib is definitely one of the best to ever do it, but the thing that hurts him most is title defense wins. Longevity in championship bouts is the biggest criteria.
