Colby Covington lost and The Fight Gods smiled. MMA’s all knowing also blessed with MMA rumors.
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.
- Word is Zuffa Boxing has suffered some major setbacks over the last few months. Rumors pegged UFC launching their boxing wing in 2019. UFC officials have reset a lot about Zuffa Boxing, with hopes for a big splash in 2020.
- Which brings us to Claressa Shields and Floyd Mayweather. Rumors pointed to many in boxing believing both are using Zuffa Boxing for leverage.
- Though if Shields really wants Amanda Nunes in the cage, expect the UFC to bend over backwards to make it happen.
- As for Mayweather, his partnership with Dana White is believed to be huge. Rumors say Mayweather Promotions and the UFC will co-promote like fans have never seen before.
- So about that rematch Colby Covington fans. Rumors all point to the UFC needing to lock Colby in a new contract before that happens. Unless the UFC gets a bargain, look for Colby to fight out the last two markers on his deal.
