Tom Aspinall wants Jon Jones stripped of title
Arman Tsarukyan's hotel altercation with Bobby Green
Jalin Turner's performance at UFC Austin
“Taking the fight on nine days’ notice, incredible night for him. Yeah, I guarantee – I mean, it’s up to you guys – but No. 13 vs. No. 12. No. 12 beats No. 13, but I’d say he moves up in the rankings the way he finished that fight tonight. It was a great night for him. Rough week, but a great night.”
Deiveson Figueiredo's bantamweight debut
“Tonight was a big night for him. I don’t know how you guys felt, but I know a lot of people felt Rob Font was too big for him and hits too hard for him, and he went out and looked great tonight.”
Clay Guida's 62nd professional fight
“I was literally saying to (Joe) Rogan during the fight, ‘How about the chin on him still.’ The wars that guy has been in, and he still has a chin and is still willing to mix it up and stand in the pocket and trade. He looked great tonight, especially against a young, well-rounded stud like Silva.”
