- Remember that horrible co-main event fight on Saturday night between Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou. Yeah, I wanted to forget it too. Both fighters have been criticized and even been critical of themselves, but now Lewis has turned the corner and is being critical of Lewis, going as far as saying, “I looked at him in his eyes and his face, and it wasn’t even the same guy that I saw at weigh-ins. He looked completely different. His soul had already completely slipped out of his body before he even stepped in the cage.”
- The cast list for TUF 28 has been announced. This has the potential to be the last TUF. From what I hear, it is completely up in the air at this point if there will be any future TUF’s. Kelvin Gastulum and Robert Whitaker will serve at the coaches on this season and will battle for Whitaker’s Middleweight crown later in the year. The show is to debut Aug. 29th of FS1.
- Brian Ortega didn’t get his big title shot at UFC 226 due to concussion symptoms by champion Max Holloway. Ortega is ready to fight at UFC 227 and for an interim title if Holloway is not healthy. He told Ariel Helwani,“From what I’m getting now, they said that Max might not fight for a long time, and he might not even fight 145. So I told them then, make the belt vacant and then I’ll fight whoever you guys want me to fight ASAP. I’ll fight them at UFC 227 here in Staples, but let’s get that situated.”
- This Saturday’s regional MMA card in Pittsburgh, the first ever MMA card at The River’s Casino, should be a very nice night of fights. It is nice to finally see the casino host an MMA event. It is a shame it is for a promotion that isn’t based in Pittsburgh, but Made Men Promotions seem to be good people so we owe them a huge thanks as well. Octagon 24/7 will be there, and we hope to see you there as well! Get your tickets quick!
