Happy Labor Day weekend. Happy Weili Zhang reign of terror and the MMA rumors that shall come.
Even the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill does not stop for labor related holidays. Can’t stop. Won’t stop. In a week where of all people BJ Penn dominated headlines, today has to be an extra blessed Sunday.
As always these are rumors that have been talked about behind closed doors between MMA higher ups, so take them as MMA rumors.
Take a break, relax, and maybe light up the BBQ with your Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.
- With Rose Namajunas rumored to be readying for a training camp, new UFC champion Weili Zhang has her next fight. Rumor is Namajunas versus Zhang will likely be made before the end of 2019.
- Don’t be surprised if the UFC gives Paige VanZant a tougher fight before she hits free agency. Rumors say the UFC want PVZ to hit the market on a loss and already have a number in mind, in terms of her new contract.
- Despite being booked on WWE’s top reality show, Total Divas, there is no new word on Ronda Rousey returning to wrestling. The last rumors say that Rousey may reevaluate her pro wrestling career at the start of 2020. Royal Rumble return?
- In even more pro wrestling rumors, former UFC champion Cain Velasquez’s career has taken off. In pro wrestling circles, it looks like New Japan Pro Wrestling may have interest in booking Velasquez for more dates and help him in his training.
- Huge if true, but it looks like BJ Penn will not be disciplined for his Street Fight this week. With no formal charges pressed, rumor is UFC will move forward as planned.
