Hmmm, he didnít have the look of a man with no cards.

I donít think heís that fussed about Jones tbh. Fair play itís one big PPV but heíd rather have an active Francis as champion any day

That's Dana's game. Immediately threw in Lewis as a potential next opponent. Not sure that's one for the casual viewer.

Jones aside, the heavyweight division is pretty bare on big names, but also on credible opponents. You've got Lewis, who is not a big attraction. You've got a few names that Francis has already destroyed. And then a few up and comers (including that lad from Salford )

I will say though that Jones also needs this fight and I am sure Dana will play that card. For a potential GOAT, Jones has done terrible on PPVs and this could be his only and last big pay day.

Might end up simply who blinks first, but more often than not the UFC gets the big fights made, so wouldn't be surprised to see this before Autumn at the latest. The hype train has already left the station.

The money should be there for Jones/Francis, enough people will want to tune in and pay ppv prices to potentially see Jones get starched in spectacular fashion. In reality it will end up being a boring grapple fight, but it will sell big numbers.

Hate the involvement of Dana in the UFC. Should be stepping aside now for someone who actually likes the fans, the fighters and even the press.

Are you another one of the white knight modern MMA fans?

Without Dana there'd be no UFC.. we wouldn't have had any fights during the last year at all.

Bit weird to blame Dana.

But like saying we should drop Bruno to let some other players get a chance.

Itís Dana thatís preventing the UFC from ending up a mess like boxing. I will take a bet Ngannou gets an opponent in a matter of weeks. Meanwhile, Joshua v Fury

There seems to be a vocal section of MMA fans that hate Dana White and the UFC. Always complaining about the gloves, Greg Hardy, late blows, the commentary, Dana White etc. They seem to forget they are covering one of the most vicious sports in the world, not badminton.

Compare the UFC to the corruption thats rife in boxing ffs

No but I think he will force himself into the reckoning. I loved his performance, very intelligent.

Give it up Don. He's never going to be a scouser. Salford born and bred.
