SUNDAY NEWS UPDATE

Dana

Our weekend show with Bryan was last night and we did a Friday night show with Garrett watching the business, where it is today and where it seems to be going. Bryan and I will be back tomorrow night to talk about Raw and the latest news.

We’re doing weekend polls for last night’s UFC 270 and tonight’s GCW show from the Hammerstein Ballroom. You can leave a thumbs up, down, or middle thumb, and a best and worst match for each show at [email protected] We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE show in Huntington, WV at [email protected]

Lots of news coming out of last night’s UFC show. Dana White refused to enter the ring and handed the belt to Francis Ngannou after his victory. Mick Maynard had to do it. White also did not attend the press conference. Ngannou spoke negatively about White during the press conference. Ngannou’s contract expired, but there was a league clause in the contract which can be extended for three more dates. Ngannou was asked on the show about boxing and said he wanted to box. Tyson Fury wrote to him saying, “If you want to win some real money, come see the GK (Gypsy King).” Ngannou won $600,000 as his base scholarship and he has already declared that he will not fight for this amount anymore. Fury earned around $30 million for his last fight. Top Rank president Todd duBoef said the fight was a no-brainer. But if Ngannou is still under contract with the UFC, which he would be, such a fight would require UFC approval.

There are people watching Ngannou challenge the champion clause, or use his knee injury, which is a legitimate reason to stay a year and not fight. What Ngannou does next will be very interesting, but he would get killed by Fury in a boxing match, but he would also earn the kind of money he wants to earn, and at his age, that would be a move to make . It’s really sad when the UFC operates on the idea of ​​making such ridiculous profits that their top stars can make more fight boxers than defend their world titles.

As for judgment, in Ngannou’s victory over Cyril Gane, judges Derek Clearly and Ron McCarthy gave rounds one and two to Gane and three to five to Ngannou, which is the same as most people. Sal D’Amato only gave Gane the second round. The first round was near. 96% of the media scores went to Ngannou.

In Deiveson Figueiredo’s victory over Brandon Moreno to win the flyweight title, which was a very close fight, Moreno would have clearly won the third and fifth rounds if Figueiredo had not knocked him down in both rounds. But it happened. Most people I saw were 38-38 heading into the fifth, but the reality was that Moreno needed a fifth-round finish from two judges at 39-37 for Figueiredo. Michael Bell gave Figueiredo rounds one, three and four, giving Moreno five. Chris Crill had one, three and five for Figueiredo, which seemed to have the most. Judge Wade Vierra had one, three and four for Figueiredo. Among the journalists’ scores we saw, 67% had it for Figueiredo and 33% for Moreno. Due to the closeness of the fight and its quality, a fourth meeting between the two, unprecedented in UFC history for two guys to have four fights in a row, seems like the next logical step.

For Google searches, UFC was No. 2 yesterday with 2 million, indicating a solid PPV number, probably better than expected. The only other combat sports topic that made the top 20 all week was Mike Tyson at No. 11 on Monday with talk of a Jake Paul fight and him kind of denying it.
