What a weird Rizin-UFC-ONE triple header. The MMA Rumors were here but where was Bellator this weekend?
As the MMA world turns MiddleEasy is here to try and make sense of it all. To catch the uncatchable. To sort the unsortable. So is life in sport of professional human cage fighting.
As always these are rumors that have been talked about behind closed doors between MMA higher ups, so take them as MMA rumors.
Cheers to another Sunday. Cheers to having a shot of whiskey with your Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.
- Huge if true, but looks like talks between Conor McGregor and UFC have stalled again. Rumors had McGregor returning in 2019, but that appears unlikely. Current fighters have even eased back in calling Mac out due to rumors.
- WWE tried to keep their deal Cain Velasquez under wraps. WWE reportedly pulled their offer, before Velasquez signed his contract.
- Rumor is Cain’s deal is different from Ronda Rousey’s contract. Velasquez is done with MMA and committed to wrestling long-term.
- All Demetrious Johnson does is win. Rumor is ONE is looking into super-fights for Mighty Mouse. 135 or even a kickboxing fight have been floated out by ONE for Mouse.
- With Rose on the shelf, Joanna Jedrzejczyk may find herself back in a title fight in early 2020.
