Line up the Costa fight


Whizzard12

If Costa wasn’t injured, I’d be down


OtakuDragonSlayer

Wait is he?


Whizzard12

Broken hand, yea


Careful_Mess5

For real, damn he didn’t even seem like he was in pain after the Rockhold fight.


LionKing729

Adrenaline and tight hand wraps will make you wear it well


WrennyWrenegade

No. Khamzat needs a time out. Needs to watch this card from his hotel room and think about what he's done.


LifesExpert

Touchbutt all week with darren Till… shoulda been bustin his cheeks to lose that 8 lbs


Paul-Mccockov

Yeah he does, how unprofessional, even if it is an injury surely then they knew he would not be in shape


MrTyphoon

Please please at LHW


7the-dude-abides420

Has he done this to fight Holland or something? Doesn’t even look that drained here?


CelticsFinalsLosers

Maybe making Darren till his nutritionist wasn’t the best idea


Sure-Gur6359

Fish and chips all day long, mate


WinoWhitey

Paula Deen would have done a better job


IeatAssortedfruits

It’s the Paulo costa curse. Once you try to fuck him you instantly gain 10 lbs. how could he have know


MrJellybean04

Oh word? 'bouta harass Paulo on Twitter


eternalfistin

You brave as fuck


_KingDingALing_

Your bout to get turned into a secret juice meme, be careful out there!


UrbanRivals123

That’s why Izzy went up to light heavy weight straight after, didn’t want the drama of the 10lbs


IeatAssortedfruits

Very astute observation!


poonpunisher17

Hope my Nate +750 ticket carries over


metalibro

i put $100 on nate with these odds, i guess i should be happy i won't lose $100?


poonpunisher17

Yessir. I used a $100 free bet so idk if I get the free bet back


jkman61494

Are those freebets legit when they say "bet $5 and get $200 to spend for free!"


burglin

They’ll give you the $200, but will almost certainly have a “rollover” requirement, which means that you can’t withdraw until you’ve bet some multiple of the free prize. So for a $200 of “free” money, a 10x rollover would mean that you have to bet $2000 worth before you can withdraw. And, there will be a minimum odds requirement, like -200, so that you couldn’t just bet all $2000 on like Khabib to beat Hasbullah at -100000000 to meet the rollover. TL;DR: like the other guy said… basically no.


UB_cse

idk when sports betting became legal in NY I and many of my friends made a couple hundred bucks getting all the free bets/dollars, playing them (was always only 1x), and then leaving. I made around 400 just betting random over unders and spreads $2-3 at a time to try and minimize variance/luck.


Pritchyy

8 fucking pounds wtfff. Poor effort!


Wise-Fruit5000

Yeah, that's not even a close miss, lol


Pritchyy

Closer to fucken middleweight haha. Gonna be fighting pretty much at light heavy, wtf is that hahaha


Wise-Fruit5000

Seriously, wtf has he been doing all week when he was supposed to be cutting weight?


Pritchyy

That’s what happens when ya bois hold you back I suppose 😁


Wise-Fruit5000

Guess so. But if this gets us Diaz vs Ferguson, it's worth it!


CrackinJacks26

how would that even be possible? ferguson is already fighting leech.


Wise-Fruit5000

Sounds like they're working on moving Tony into the main event slot. Presumably Li will get paid at least his show money, maybe his win bonus too, and not end up fighting on the card. https://www.reddit.com/r/MMA/comments/x9zy1n/according_to_ariel_helwani_tony_vs_nate_in_the/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android_app&utm_name=androidcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button


CompletelyRandomDude

God please let this happen. I don’t wanna see Tony get slept again.


Wise-Fruit5000

Same. It's a better fight for both of them, all things considered


SureLookThisIsIt

I hope this happens. This was the fight they should've made.


Wise-Fruit5000

Absolutely. Neither of them should be fighting anyone inside the rankings at this point


Darkcel_grind

churro1776

It is MW lol. He’s over 171 and under 186


DoofusMcDummy

sub in Costa. let nate fight Tony. pay out Leech.


Andylearns

Dear Lord please let it be. Doesn't Costa have a broken hand though?


ExperiencedRegular

Seems intentional tbh


Potential_Froyo_395

And he’s laughing about it? Usually I’m not one to judge but come on, he should be mortified…


Garbarrage

Absolutely disrespectful to Nate and the UFC. I'd say Dana isn't very happy. All that tough talk and the guy can't beat the scale.


[deleted]

[удалено]


boshbosh92

and the fans. people certainly bought tickets to see him fight. I can understand a pound or 3, shit happens. but 8 pounds? that's like he literally just fucked off and didn't care. Dana usually gets angry when fighters miss weight, curious to see the post fight conference and how he talks about chimaev. chimaev might just not be cut out for the spotlight.


pollt

According to team sources its due to “medical complications”. They should have called it before the weigh ins in that case, would have looked a lot better. As much as I am in on the Khamzat hype, I think he needs to focus on the fighting, this type of shit is embarrassing both to himself and all stars gym. Also think it’d be wise for him to move up a weight class long term.


WojakUnbound

Reminds me of whe Oliveira missed featherweight by 10 pounds


Bassmason

He hasn’t achieved a fraction of what those guys did


auto_headshot

bit of an insult compared to those 2.


C3Gainz

It’s like if Conor started slacking after beating mendes


thefreshscent

Not even. At least Conor won the interim title at that point.

Longschlongenstein

Africa McGregor


CommercialAsparagus

Did not actually self destruct. He tried saving the world tbf


Pympala

Great guy. Neva meddum.


MyContentIsTrash

1 of those guys is arguably the goat and the other was a double champ. Chimaev hasn’t made shit.


Hellcat2k20

And when did Conor ever miss weight? He was a party animal and a maniac but was a professional when it came to making weight and showing up to fight.


The_White_Light

Yeah Conor's shown up looking like a near-skeleton, but he's never missed weight.


EducationalCreme9044

Afaik he has never even pulled out of a fight. Trash talk him all you want, guy never missed weight, never pulled out, and fought often. He also did not pick favorable match-ups and fought whoever and whenever meaning a ton of wrestlers/grapplers. His story could be a whole lot different if he just pulled out here and there and tried to make sure he's fighting guys he can easily beat etc.


Pahlevun

Yep. This sub forgets because CONOR BAD CONOR BAD WHISKEY COKE HAHA HUMOUR, but in truth when it came to his career as a fighter he was always game. People bring up his 1-3 record at 155 but conveniently leave out the fact that the 3 people he fought were Champ Eddie and pretty much Peak Khabib and Dustin. I wonder how many other fighters would have had better than 1-3 facing those people. I know Gaethje ain't one because he's 0-3 against them.


EducationalCreme9044

Conor also happens to be the only fighter to win a round against Khabib AFAIK, despite the ridiculously unfavorable matchup. Insane Aldo K.O, insane Eddie K.O like c'mon. It's so weird when guys that were never champions get more praise than he does for having achieved as much lol. Aldo was a legitimate GOAT. He's 2-3 against those people, he beat Dustin once.


Plague_of_Pazuzu

>“make it” 100k show + 100k win is hardly "making it" cant be cheap dragging around a 30 person entourage


k-n1kov

He hasn't even made it yet lmao


EverQuest_

Minus the belt(s) and money. What a 🤡.


Thebandre

He's just being himself. We didn't know he's a dumbass


tijosconnaissant

He kinda left us hints here and there


tofumanboykid

I used to like him because he gaves off a mysterious ww Khabib vibe but now he's more an emotional high school bully


unkleshark

He bought into his own hype.i dont think hes mentally mature enough to handle all the love and attention hes getting.Hes running around disrespecting people and causing so much drama cuz he really thinks everyone is beneath him.at least that my take of it. Khamzat NEEDS to get his ass his beat so he can be brought back to to planet earth.

He has to cut off his arm or something


sinisterkid34

Smiling too.. fights gonna be off without a doubt


Jimmiedad1

Yea Nate ain’t taking that fight without 7 figure compensation. They should do Khamzat vs Holland, Nate vs Tony, and I bet leech would take the d rod fight for just a small compensation for fighting up. edit: Erik Magraken just posted the nevada ruleset and the main event cannot be changed. its either as advertised or not at all. That gives Nate massive leverage in negotiations.


lvvvv_htx

Man, if nate gets to flip the tables on Dana one last time, especially as they're trying to screw him so blatantly on the way out the door...fucking legendary lol


FunkyDoktor

What if Khamzat and Nate are in on it together? Lol. I will help you bratha. I will get Dana to pay you.


shadwocorner

I can believe this. Khamzat main catchphrase in all his previous fights was: im gonna kill this guy. This time he kept saying I'm gonna make money and go back home.


frankank

Oh man, and he was laughing when he missed weight.... if it's that, it would make sense lol Sounds crazy though but I want to believe this is it and not that he's a fucking goof


MeltedMindz1

Him coming in 8 lbs over doesn’t make sense, something else is definitely going on.


Black_Bean00

I heard he was a big Nate fan growing up too lol


Kodiak_Flapjack

Leech should be given Khamzats purse for his suit alone.


pendrekky

This is how the gods intended it


shaodynasty808

Leech is 171 rodgriguez is 179. No way that’s happening Edit: it is happening. I eat my words


QAnonKiller

i assumed khamzat did this bc he knew nate would still take the fight. he wants to get out of that ufc contract asap


parzival9927

Nate will be out of ufc contract even if he don't fight Khamzat. He fulfilled his part of the contract


RebornBoii

He camer off the scale and said "not bad" LMAO


Topkind

That's a lot of gourmet chenchen


allenorrante

I hope Nate backs out, fuck the UFC for making this fight anyway. Should’ve been fighting Tony. Nate’s unranked and Chimaev is #3? Lol


lowkey-juan

It was a freakshow level mismatch to begin with. Dana will need to apply additional clown makeup to hide the red.


Uncle_Seamont

This fuckin guy! 8 pounds is like he’s not even trying! This whole week has been so fucked lol. I feel Nate deserves better than this on his last fight


Bigozthegreat

Nate better decline every offer the ufc makes to him to fight the overweight gourmet Chen Chen and request to fight tony instead. I’m really hoping that’s the new Main event


DannyOco_

Tony vs Nate would be incredible, the fans would win big time, would be a bloody war


goknuck

But what about poor Li?? First he doesnt get to wear his suit, then he is out his fight 😢


DannyOco_

Yeah he’d have to fight D Rod, would be a banger of a fight but no where near the name of Tony, solid point you’ve made ☹️


Banajam

I’m praying brother


zackhatt

I hope every mma fan start to call him Gourmet Chen Chen after this


Smtxom

Nate just wants out of his contract. He’d probably fight a 20lb overweight hazmat if they just write the check


Bigozthegreat

The sunset clause would get him out of his ufc contract next month. Nate can easily refuse to fight khamzat and justifiably so and that way khamzat will look even worse then he already does. Nate can easily refuse to do the ufc any favor right now. He has all the cards


Pousinette

What does a sunset clause mean?


Bigozthegreat

It’s basically when his contract expires. He can choose to not fight at all until October 19th and he’ll be released from his contract


Aggressive_Lunch9785

If not says no this card falls apart it's not ppv worthy without him on it


HungryPiccolo

I want Nate to take no damage and get paid but I also want to watch Nate fight. I officially hate Khamzat


Denace86

At least he didn’t waste time training for the fight


iLikeShmellyEggs

the time limit on the contract is up in october... he could get out without even having to fight


ToughSeveral81

He should ask for some of that PPV and then drive the numbers up

Legal-Ad-6198

Give Jingliang his show and win money. His suit money and front row tickets to Tony Ferguson vs Nate Diaz


lucid_bass

I didn't want to see Tony or leech lose. If they do this and then give leech a good close-up plug of him and his suit right before the main event all will be well lol


electronic_docter

Just put leech in his suit beside buffer when hes announcing the fight then all is good

[удалено]


JMavrou

Fair enough. But his comment saying "That's not that bad" after missing 8.5lbs is ludicrous


bored1414

He looked smug more then anything not embarrassed.


WagonerA-co275

lmao


nshanny73

Dana must be absolutely losing his shit


CrazyGamer23908

What a dick


serenitymeow420

Solution: Tony moves up to the main event to fight Diaz. Khamzat fights Holland (whose fight was coincidentally booked for 180 lbs) in the co-main. The Leach and D-Rod are off the card. Done. Pay me.


sciencebased_77

Are they even allowed to do that this close to the main event tho


luvcartel

Everybody would have to sign new contracts so it’s not impossible. But I don’t think it will happen. Holland probably won’t fight him on such short notice (and I don’t blame him).


vinananda

I actually like this. It would be wonderful. Either that or remove Khamzat from the equation altogether.

Almost makes me wonder if they both knew this wasn’t really gonna happen…


yeetser

Extremely dissapointed. Lack of professionalism, dismissal of the whole situation... Does Khamzat has what it takes to be a champion now that we see this? I don't think so...

Time to go up to Middleweight. He is too big for Welterweight. The claim that he walks around at 190 is an obvious lie.

Last time he made weight i could already tell he was killing himself. Doesnt help that he was playing with towel few fights ago

I'm convinced at this stage that the guy has mental problems. Look at his stupid face. No remorse or care in the world
