UFC Fight Night 96: John Lineker vs John Dodson AKA The Battle of The Hard-hitting Little Guys

UFC 205 has had everyone in a bit of a frenzy this week. Since the announcement of Conor McGregor’s bid to challenge Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title, there has been nonstop talk from every media source, including this one, about how enjoyable and historic the event will be. So when the revelation that John Lineker versus John Dodson was occurring this weekend, you can understand that I was a bit surprised. It’s an event that not many are talking about and that’s a huge mistakes as two of the hardest hitting bantamweights under 5’6″ tall will be trying to take each other’s heads off.

Max Holloway Bashes Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor. Does He Have A Point?

Madness is consuming the featherweight division.

So, it seems as if the fighters at featherweight are more than a bit disgruntled. After it was announced that Conor McGregor would be fighting Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, it seemed like every fighter in the featherweight division decided to lose it. Jose Aldo decided he’d rather retire then play the UFC’s money grab game and it seems that Max Holloway refuses to be outdone. Usually a more reserved and tactful individual who does his talking in the cage, Holloway has gone on a verbal tirade denouncing both Aldo and McGregor in the process.

Donald Cerrone Trashes Khabib and Conor, Says Neither Want To Fight Him

So, much in the fashion of the current UFC and MMA landscape, talking seems to be the best way to bring in the dollars. While many want to denounce Conor McGregor for his tactics, the reality is that he’s been able to get paid a considerable amount of money based on his fighting skills as well as his equally impressive skills on the microphone. As such, more and more fighters are speaking out letting the masses know exactly what’s on their minds. Now granted these fighters have always remained true to themselves, but racking up a pile of cash like McGregor isn’t easy and it requires fighters to turn themselves into a brand.

Conor McGregor Faces Eddie Alvarez For The Lightweight Title. Is This a Slap In The Face To The Lighweight Division?

Can the nutty Irishman make history?

So last week I was speaking on the fact that UFC 205 was missing some marquee bouts. Since then the announcements of Chris Weidman vs Yoel Romero, Donald Cerrone vs Kelvin Gastelum, Tyron Woodley vs Stephen Thompson, and numerous others has instantly made this card stellar even by the UFC standard. Overnight it seems that UFC 205, if no one gets injured that is, is likely going to be the fight card of the year. But the icing on the cake for this event is the announcement of Eddie Alvarez vs Conor McGregor lightweight title match.

WHY CRIS CYBORG’S WEIGHT BATTLE CALLS FOR SOME NEW CHANGES IN WMMA

In any prize fighting sport weight is a big deal. I know what you’re thinking, what about back in the day before weight classes, when Royce Gracie defeated Gerard Gordeau at UFC 1? While a prime example, the UFC didn’t really evolve as a sport until it started making weight classes and implementing rules.

What The Hell Is Going On With UFC 205?

So UFC 205, the first major mixed martial arts event in the great state of New York, is right around the corner. Yet, with only a month and change until the event there still has been no fights booked. What? Not having fights booked six weeks out from an event is something that’s a rarity for a smaller promotion much less the biggest fight organization in MMA. The UFC has yet to get a main or co-main event slotted to entice the fans. For now everything is “in the works,” but at this point the UFC needs to get things set in stone.
