UFC fight discussion thread

Greetings MMA fans

The growth this sport has seen over the last few years has been incredible and for those of us that have been long time fans, the success and the adulation the sport has been receiving has been well over due.

We've just had an iconic rematch between Diaz and McGregor at UFC 202 and now the heavyweights are ready to do battle at UFC 203 this weekend.

Since the MMA board usually only sees activity during the big cards, I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread for people to discuss all the latest stories and news in the MMA world.

Feel free to post links,videos or anything MMA/UFC related

comment by The Guvnor - I spend my free time widening my rear end to prepare for the 10-inch strap ons I receive on a daily basis from this bint in HR. I preferred having to clean out Mary Berry's cream pies, but the hairs use to get stuck in my teeth... (U12889)

GSP has been released from his UFC contract following the failure of both parties efforts to renegotiate new terms.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
where did you get this from bud? I just listened to the Ariel Helwany podcast and GSP is talking about this but basically he is saying hes released but the UFC haven't confirmed that. He got some lawyer to give them a deadline to arrange a fight. They came back last minute with an enquiry about Robbie Lawler and his lawyer said that's it then you're a free agent cos they didn't organise a fight in time UFC don't usually release fighters easily if theres money to be made off them so I'm wondering if hes just trying to force the issue.

Apparently they missed the deadline and Lawler won't be ready as he's still recovering from his loss. The new owners have allegedly told St Pierre that it would cost them too much to promote him and offer him the extra pay and GSP has said it himself, he is a free agent. If it is a ruse, I cannot imagine the UFC taking too kindly to it and the new owners might decide to cut there losses with him.

Gonna be an interesting one if he goes to fight elsewhere I'd say ufc have these guys owned usually in multi fight contracts

He was a massive draw, I'd be surprised if they just let him leave to go make money for another organisation

I don't think it would worry them. They have UFC 205 which will shatter records and they have Rousey returning in December. GSP isn't really vital at this point.
