Sunday Morning Rumor Mill 50

Happy Mother’s Day. The best gift you can get your mom this year is unconditional love and the acknowledge that being a parent is tough as hell. The second best gift you can give the woman who gave birth to your MMA loving ass is the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.

Saturday was a glorious day in combat sports. Boxing, Road FC, Bellator and UFC 224 put us in a spiral of violence that nearly caused the weekly Rumor Mill to topple over on to itself.

As always these are rumors that have been talked about behind closed doors between MMA higher ups, so take them as MMA rumors.

Hug a mom today, even if it’s not yours, probably partake in a brunch or BBQ, then dive into the warm embrace that is your Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.
