    Now they have a farm league essentially where they can control the matchmaking. Thoughts?

    some Canadian MMA companies merged..I think it was Apex and another but I'm not sure

    UFC buying out WEC is a different situation for sure, althoughs for a lot more interesting ways to lead up to the "big show"

    I heard it directly from one of the WEC promoters. They'd been hinting around at it a lot, showing UFC promos at their shows and stuff. Then Dana and Lorenzo Fertitta showed up at their last show. Today he just came out and said it.

    That was one reporter's hypothesis on a possible motive. I think they're more concerned with market share.

    The day I see fightsport as a reliable sport, Is the day I saw both testicles off with a butter knife.

    That being said, I have seen a few topics about this on a few forums. Couldn't hurt I guess?
