Talks are once again heating up that Snyder will sign a huge MMA deal prior to his next run at the 2020 Olympics in freestyle wrestling for Team USA.
- Rumors are Ronda Rousey was not booked for this past Monday night by the WWE so should could train for her in-ring debut, hit some major media appearances and give her first storyline a little time to simmer some more. Expect Rousey to appear this week on Monday night Raw.

- All signs are pointing towards Luke Rockhold vs. Michael Bisping part three happening over the summer. The current target for the fight date may correspond with UFC’s International Fight Week events.
