So I guess Jones was on estrogen blockers... USADA has extended his temporary suspension and we will have to see where it goes from there. Curious to see how long his ban is.
It's going to be around 2 years right? That's a costly suspension. That's two years of his prime, he's losing out on a TON of money. And if the suspension is 2 years or more, the Cormier/Jones rematch will probably never happen.
Baaaaaaaaa!

Looks like Lesnar got caught for the same thing Jones was on.

Noooo Robbie!!! Oh well i don't think Woodley's going to be holding the belt for long. I've lost count of how many belts have changed hands this year!
I think Rogan said 8 or 9 this year?

That was the one thing Woodley had that all Welterweights should be afraid of.
Similar to how Hendricks (pre-USADA) had his left hook.

Is Wonderboy next for Woodley? if so, I think he will out-point him in the early rounds and finish in the championship rounds.
I would love to see Nick Diaz (coming off suspension) vs. Robbie Lawler next.

I had Diaz winning that fight.

Wouldn't surprise me if there was some kind of match fixing involved for the trilogy fight. More and more decisions are becoming very questionable.

I didn't think Conor had a chance in that fight, but you're honestly questioning the results of the judges in this one? Perhaps I could see a draw but imo Conor won 1,2 and 4. Nate was the clear winner in round 3, Round 4 and 5 were both close.

Here're the major media outlet scoring...

Saw what I saw, Diaz pressed the pace in the majority of the rounds, landed more strikes, didn't run from the action.

Most MMA fighters agree that Diaz won also

True, Diaz had a bit more strikes, unfortunately you don't score the fight as a whole, you have to score them by rounds.

All I know is that if Conor lost that fight, he's pretty much done, no? Losing to the same guy twice, someone he's supposed to handle easily (before their 1st match not knowing what we know now). Anyway, definitely need part 3 since this one wasn't convincing at all, he started out great but almost lost it, desperately clinging on through force of will.

Will their next match be less even given Conor wants it @155? He should win that handily?
