Concerning a observe from this previous week’s Observer relating to how rapidly issues change, we had been advised Vince McMahon was solely again relating to facilitating a sale and would not be within the workplace or making modifications, however that has already modified. Ringside Information first reported McMahon having been again within the workplace and suggesting modifications, and we have confirmed that story as effectively. Expertise was advised on Friday that Paul Levesque would stay answerable for inventive and Levesque threw out a state of affairs that Vince may make recommendations and he talks to a number of individuals about inventive they usually could make recommendations however he’s the man making the ultimate calls.
It is again to enterprise as typical in UFC. That they had the primary present and Dana White headed the press convention saying that Francis Ngannou is not with the corporate and that Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane face off for the heavyweight title on 3/4. White stated that Ngannou was provided extra money than any heavyweight in historical past (he most ever was Brock Lesnar who acquired $8 million for his final battle) to face Jones and threw the knock that Ngannou was on the lookout for simpler competitors. Final yr there was a number of discuss of Ngannou desirous to field Tyson Fury and his having the ability to get much more as a boxer, despite the fact that it is a battle he’d have little or no likelihood in. Ngannou vs. Jon Jones can be a giant battle that might be the most important PPV occasion UFC can placed on proper now. UFC needed to pay pretty massive to get Jones to signal for eight fights. Ngannou’s second transfer, if the primary one is Fury, can be attention-grabbing. It might really feel like the perfect transfer economically can be a return to UFC, however Bellator and PFL will surely not less than attempt to nab him. But when the asking value is greater than Lesnar, I do not see the way it makes financial sense.
In final night time’s UFC major occasion, Sean Strickland beat Nassourdine Imavov along with his dimension distinction. All three judges gave Strickland the primary 4 rounds and Imavov the fifth.
The controversial choice was Raquel Pennington over Ketlen Vieira. Bell gave Pennington the primary two rounds. Derek Cleary gave Pennington rounds two and three. Sal D’Amato gave Vieira one and three. However 87 % of media scores have been for Vieira.
So far as Google searches this weekend go, it is clearly dominated by soccer. The UFC was No. 6 yesterday however extra for the Ngannou, Jones and Gane information than the present itself.
