Why can’t we still see Joanna vs Weli 2 just not a belt on the line

If Valentina had the same size as Nunes she would be the best female fighter in the world. Theres just to much size difference, and still Valentina won her in their second fight in many people's opinions.

I do not want to see Rose and Joanna again. Joanna has to fight someone else. There’s a couple good straw weights on the rise. Joanna will drop down on the rankings if she doesn’t stay active.

I usually agree with Okamoto but i strongly disagree with two points here, why should Joanna wait she lost twice to the same champion, he's saying it makes sense to do that fight it really doesn't make at all especially for Rose, she beat her twice why would she go back until she beats a few others, why not do wei lei vs Joanna 2, then go from there, wei lei is coming off a loss and Joanna lost to her so that makes more sense and remember that last fight think people will want to see that more than anything and then Shevcheko v tunes 3 also doesn't make sense either she beat her twice why would amanda fight her again? she has so much more to lose prob everything if she loses to shevchenko, legit both don't make sense in the slightest.

Valentina submitted Julianna Peña in 2017, she had already made a point showing her ground game being at another level. She mixes it up in way nobody else does it. Her fight IQ is just above, she's on the top overall.I was embarrassed by Andrade's approach, felt she could've understood that she needed to prepare in a better gym. Valentina made it look like the former champion didn't belong. I'm impressed as Valentina is always learning, learning languages, travelling,learning about other cultures, she's practicing shooting, dancing, martial arts, you name it. On the other side we have Amanda who is enjoying her family, the good life, she's been an active reality show commentator. She's always talking about Big Brother Brasil while Valentina is always looking to learn more. And don't forget of her probably new career making movies. If they fight for the third time I don't think she's gonna lose. We won't see an Athlete like Valentina in a while.

Jorge was looking good in that fight. He was getting off some big shots from the bottom. I heard the corner say, “if you get taken down, head to the wall”. He looked in amazing shape and obviously worked hard on the wrestling. Just took Usman’s punching power too lightly. At this level it’s a matter of inches, if he had been serious with his obviously superior stand up, Jorge could have won that.

How can you consider Jon Jones as P4P #1, he has been struggling in the second weakest division in the UFC, he lost his last fight according to the consensus of your colleagues, while Usman dominates in the strongest one. Light Heavyweight is just popular because "big guys" but just ask yourself how many big guys there is on the planet vs how many welters? How can you call yourself a professional if you fail to consider such simple and obvious factors? Jon Jones shouldnt even be considered for anything in the first place just like NOBODY consider Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds as anything anymore.

Cannot see coby bigmouth gobshight beating usmam would like to see khabib fight usmam that could be the next big money fight if they can drag him out of retirement , looks like we’re not going to see the Jones v ngannou fight . C mon Dana , Jones deserves a massive payday he s stepped up to heavy weight. He s never lost a fight bar the elbow fight which he was winning easily , this guy deserves the 30 million , how much has he brought to the company eh ? 4/5/6/700 million ? Nearly 1 billion and he fights all comers , this is the biggest fight the UFC can make bigger than Conner v khabib ! Get the wedge out strike a deal let the world see this fight Jones deserves it. Strike a deal a one of big payday then set his defences up at a fixed figure ! He deserves a Connor pay day anyday he could win the heavyweight title then go back down and be champ champ if he wanted to , it’s outrageous get the bucks out for this legend he deserves it more than anybody , you yourself said he s the greatest ever so how comes he does n t deserve the big Connor payday ? Stop being a miser / scrounge Dana n wake up it will break records on the PPV and you know it Miser

Why should Colby fight Leon?? Colby and usman had the closest fight out of all usmans fights. Masvidal had a lack lustre fight against usman and then did not fight anyone else and got a rematch pretty quickly. Colby actually had a close fight with usman, lost, then proceeded to finish woodley in his next fight. Why would Colby have to fight 2 times before he gets another title shot but masvidal can fight 0 times before he got another one
