Shane Burgos was on the wrong end of a unanimous decision on Saturday’s UFC fight card. Burgos, who entered his matchup against Josh Emmett as the No. 10 in the official UFC featherweight rankings, plummeted to No. 15 after his loss even though the fight will probably be in the running for the fight of the year for 2020.

What a perfect storm of disaster. Kirik, the so called MMA media, and the UFC. The rankings have always been a joke and it seems ridiculous that anyone would take them seriously, but unfortunately they do have real material influence on the fighters.

UFC has been JEALOUSLY watching fake wrestling for years

They are "manufacturing" a MMA product with their buddies over at shedog

They're sports entertainment NOT the Olympics

the GLARING lack of soviet bloc Freestyle wrestlers is AMAZING!!

How clearly shedog mods protect their fixed fights is clear

Sports entertainment 101
with a fake news narritive
