Anderson silva is about to be 47. Paul needs to fight someone his age and height/weight.I do agree with what Weidman said about how Paul needs to be calling out Anderson Silva if he wants a real boxing challenge against an MMA fighter. I am also holding out hope that Nate fights out his UFC contract and goes over to box Paul. Other than that, I just don’t care about the Paul/Dana contrived “feud.”
Fury is doing his part to hype a potential fight with Ngannou.
UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou will go into his title defense against Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 on Jan. 22 with a lot of uncertainty around his future contractual status with the promotion. But one thing he says he knows for sure is that he will not fight again under the terms of his current deal.
"No,'' Ngannou said, when asked if he would keep fighting under the deal. "I will not fight for $500,000 [or] $600,000 anymore. It's over. I took this fight for personal reasons, because I want to make sure that regardless of [whether] it's fair, I can make my case that I have completed the fights."Should he retain the UFC's heavyweight title, he would be subject to a champion's clause in his contract. That clause would keep him under contract for either three fights or one year. But Ngannou, who was born in Cameroon and now fights out of Las Vegas, said that in the absence of a new deal, he would hold out on accepting any fight.
The reality of when the contract would legally end under that scenario is unclear. Ngannou's situation is unprecedented in modern MMA. According to him and his manager, Marquel Martin, there is language in the contract stating it can not last longer than five years; however, the UFC also holds extending rights if Ngannou turns down a fight.
The two sides have failed to reach a new deal in multiple efforts over the last several years, and it does not seem likely the issue will be resolved prior to Jan. 22.
"You don't always come to terms with people," UFC president Dana White told ESPN last month. "Listen, if you want to be with us, we'd love to have you. If you don't want to be with us, no problem. All good."
I was a big fan for many years but fell off after the Hopkins/Taylor fights. After that, it just became a chore. Main events rarely delivered and the politics of the various federations killed any semblance of integrity.nah. but i almost wrote "something canelo" then realized he is "canelo alvarez" (i think)
except for jake paul, logan paul, and silva cards, havent watched boxing since tyson vs lewis
i smoke a lot of the marijuana in college. but not at home. tyson/lewis was either winter or summer break. college kids met up at a home in east rutherford iirc. hotboxed a jeep before the tyson fight, so it hit me hardI was a big fan for many years but fell off after the Hopkins/Taylor fights.
