Was this a quite in MMA? The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill is confused and scared about a “normal” week in our great sport.
Keep in mind this was a week where wrestler, Sambo fighter turned UFC champion Khabib Nurmagodnavo challenged unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather to a match. Yup, 100% normal MMA things.
As always these are rumors that have been talked about behind closed doors between MMA higher ups, so take them as MMA rumors.
There are only 10 shopping days left this Brock-tober, celebrate with quality time with your Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.
- After Luke Rockhold fell off, there was no consideration in bringing Nate Diaz back to save UFC 230. Rumor is Diaz and the UFC are farther than ever on future contract negotiations.
- Good rumors coming out of Daniel Cormier’s upcoming tryout to be a WWE color commentator. Rumors are the WWE reached out to Cormier and he is being targeted as working with the company’s NXT brand.
- Rumor is over the last couple of weeks Ronda Rousey has been working on writing her own promos. Rumors also point to legendary pro wrestling manager and Brock Lesnar advocate Paul Heyman working closely with Rousey on her character work.
- Another nail may be put in the career of Georges St. Pierre. Rumors say GSP wants to only fight at lightweight, sorry Anderson Silva fans, and it’s pretty much a fight with Khabib or bust for the Canadian GOAT.
