Rousey’s next feud, UFC interim belts, Zuffa boxing and more in the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

No UFC, no Bellator, no problem. Mixed martial arts is the greatest sport because there are no days off. For the 8,760 hours a year, MMA is online ready to download directly into your brain stem. Every week the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill releases a new update to improve your MMA operating system.

Given a chance to breath from major shows, MMA got to embrace it’s inner weird self. This is also why MMA is greatest; because it’s weird as fuck.

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

Keep MMA weird today and give your Sunday Morning Rumor Mill a big ol’ hug.

  • Originally targeted for a summer 2018 debut, Zuffa boxing is again picking steam. Don’t surprised if the UFC makes a formal announcement with some sort business laid out in the coming weeks. If rumors hold up, the first Zuffa boxing card will be on TV and anchored by huge main event.
  • Huge if true, but it still looks like Conor McGregor is scheduled to attend UFC 223. The UFC has gone away from the practice over the last few years, but there is a possibility of them working in a McGregor versus the winner Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov post-fight face-off.
  • Rumors are the WWE has already has internal talks about Ronda Rousey’s feud for WrestleMania 35 in April 2019. Rousey has impressed enough during her training that the WWE is looking to book her versus undefeated  Asuka at next year’s Mania. The WWE would also keep Asuka undefeated until her match with Rousey.
  • The UFC looks to be bringing in yet another interim title into a fold with a rumored Rafael dos Anjos vs. Colby Covington fight at UFC 224 in May. Looking to get a boost at the box office, the UFC hopes slapping an interim tag on the RDA vs. Colby fight will add some shine relativity dull match-up.
