THANK YOU to everyone who RT my cat and robbery post.
Fox5 Vegas got involved and now the police are launching a full investigation. $30k+ worth of stuff stolen and a beloved pet gone.
Stuff doesn’t matter, I just want to see them punished for what they did to poor Dwight


#1362

Exactly! People are just shit nowadays. I hope they get whoever did it.


#1363

That’s fucked up man. It’s bad enough that she got robbed. They didn’t have to kill her cat too. Fucking savages.


#1364

Leave no witnesses yo.


#1365

lol was Woodley salty on Rogan last night or WHAT? Damn man. Never heard a Champion seem so bummed out lol. He has to realize its up to him to make himself a draw.


#1366

No that is literally the job of the promoter

UFC will push whitey above all. For rampage he had to coon to get a push.

But ufc ALWAYS prioritized pushing their white fighters


#1367

Stipe says the UFC told him to talk trash or something to promote and he told them thats their job. They push Ngannou to the moon over him in response.

UFC are shitty at pushing top guys they didnt groom from the start. Look at Carla vs Cythiya, same shit.

Woodley needs to get his personallity out there in a way that more than complaining about shit is his problem. But UFC did him no favors by never getting behind him.


#1368

Ideally UFC would get behind Woodley but if not then fuck em, he needs to just work on building his own fanbase.


#1369

that joe rogan interview prob did more to hurt than help. you wont admit to just how fuckin big the chip on his shoulder is


#1370

Not saying its not their job, just that they arent going to do it.


#1371

That is the difference with spiketv era and fox era though

Think of all the specials, personality pieces, interviews, hype vids

They showed on spike buiilding their top guys

Fox era they only built ronda and connor

Ever since the move to fox it is about pushing the brand over the fighters

It is the same problem with wwe, except guys in wwe use social media to their advantage


#1372

^^ I agree. Spike’s lack of programming had them leaning hard on UFC promotion and side shows. Spike really helped build up UFC in the 00’s.


#1373

Jimmy Smith is a good dude.

I love that he is replacing rogan

Todd Grisham is also good. I liked him on ecw.


#1374

Lucky Charms to be stripped of his titles rofl.


#1375

lol im confused. these niggas got paid so he could fight boxing and then are like…btw gimme those belts.


#1376

Need to find and link the new article cause am on mobile but basically what went down, Dana told Conor to fight Khabib, Conor said no then Dana said fuck you.


#1377

#1378

Yeah lets get Khabib vs Ferguson out of the way, it’s not like Connor wouldn’t get a chance anyway.


#1379

im totally fine with that, but the ufc usually will bury someone so fast if they refused fights. and dana hasnt flat out said he wasnt refusing fights he just sounds like a dissappointed dad in most interviews. just didnt know when he would fight, so its almost like they never even offered him one. now they are acting like hes dodging people outta nowhere. he did work for them, they got their money now they wanna act tough


#1380


A cliffhanger…
