Regarding a note from the Observer last week about how quickly things change, we were told that Vince McMahon had only returned to facilitate a sale and would not be in the office or make any changes, but that has now changed. Ringside News first reported that McMahon had returned to the office and suggested changes, and we have confirmed that story as well. Talent was told on Friday that Paul Levesque would remain in charge of creative and Levesque pitched a scenario where Vince could make suggestions and he talks to various people about creative and they can make suggestions but he’s the guy who calls the shots. finals.
He’s back on track in the UFC. They had the first show and Dana White headlined the press conference announcing that Francis Ngannou is no longer with the company and that Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane meet for the heavyweight title on 3/4. White said Ngannou was offered more money than any heavyweight in history (more than ever was Brock Lesnar, who was paid $8 million for his last fight) to face Jones and threw the punchline that Ngannou was looking for a fight. easier competition. There was a lot of talk last year about Ngannou wanting to fight Tyson Fury and that he could get a lot more out of it as a fighter, even though it’s a fight he would have very little chance of. Ngannou vs. Jon Jones would be a great fight that would be the biggest pay-per-view event the UFC can put on right now. The UFC had to pay quite a bit to get Jones to sign eight fights. Ngannou’s second move, if his first is Fury, would be interesting. It would feel like the best financial move would be to return to the UFC, but Bellator and the PFL would certainly at least try to catch him. But if the asking price is more than Lesnar, I don’t see how it makes economic sense.
In last night’s UFC main event, Sean Strickland beat Nassourdine Imavov on their size difference. The three judges gave Strickland the first four rounds and Imavov the fifth.
The controversial decision was Raquel Pennington over Ketlen Vieira. Bell gave Pennington the first two rounds. Derek Cleary gave Pennington rounds two and three. Sal D’Amato gave Vieira one and three. But 87 percent of the media scores went to Vieira.
When it comes to Google searches this weekend, it’s obviously dominated by football. The UFC was number 6 yesterday, but more because of the Ngannou, Jones and Gane news than the show itself.
