    Aaron Bronsteter on Twitter: "Per Dana White, Francis Ngannou vs. Derrick Lewis is being targeted for this summer. Earlier today, he gave me an update on where the promotion stood with Jon Jones. Full interview: https://t.co/7HQ2SihfW9 https://t.co/JfEZsef7hx" / Twitter

    Derrick Lewis Vs. Ngannou rematch for the summer, shows you how weak HW is, the first fight was a boring stare-fest which is often the case with these exciting-on-paper matchups.

    Anyways, Stipe is planning to put on 15 or 20 pounds to get to around 250 lbs for the Ngannou rematch, hopefully he doesn't make the mistake of accepting a small octagon either. I think Ngannou's strength/size/mass was too much of a problem since he was cutting down to HW while Stipe was a "mere" 234/5 lbs, not allowing Stipe to hold him down efficiently even with superior wrestling skill. Stipe is getting long in the tooth and taken a lot of damage so I don't know how much longer he can hang.

    Stipe Miocic: I’m going to gain 20 pounds for Francis Ngannou rematch

    Alana McLaughlin: “I want to pick up the mantle that Fallon put down”

    I am not sure if I should put this in the "We are Living in a Cartoon" thread or here, either works I guess.

    The sequel to the Fallon Fox catastrophe that caused Joe Rogan to come under fire for calling him "a f-cking man", I doubt Joe Rogan would say something like this again as that was back in 2013, in an interview during the same year one of the best Welterweights ever Matt Hughes called Fallon Fox "it".

    How things have changed in 8 years, I can pin it all changing during the summer of 2015 when Bruce Jenner changed his name to Caitlyn Jenner.
