Germaine De Randamie won in impressive fashion with her first submission victory in her professional career. Just like GDR’s guillotine choke, Middle Easy has the rumor mill on lock. Here’s a look at some of the rumors circulating the sport this week.
Sunday Morning Rumor Mill
As always these are rumors that have been talked about behind closed doors between MMA higher-ups, so take them as MMA rumors.
Authority always wins and so does the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill. Celebrate one of these on the seventh day of this great week.
- We’re being told that Wanderlei Silva will be making his way to ONE FC. Primarily, the company would like to give “Wand” the opportunity to face Vitor Belfort for the second time in their careers. The first time the pair fought was in 1998, where Belfort was able to TKO Wand.
- If rumors go to plan, Silva will get his attempt for revenge. But for now, Belfort is scheduled to take on Alain Ngalani.
- Earlier in the month, UFC President Dana White announced that Khamzat Chimeav would finally face a ranked opponent. While many speculated that it would be “Wonderboy” Thompson, Dana stated that Thompson was only interested in facing Leon Edwards.
- However, we’re hearing that Wonderboy will still be the opponent for Khamzat. In fact, the promotion is working on sealing the deal as we speak.
