Michelle Waterson needs to put on 10 pounds and get her fine behind to the UFC.

In other news, I would have the intercourse with Paige Van Zant.

I read that from Helwani's twitter right after his bad news about Velasquez, glad for something good. Like how they have some nice distance between the only two so far classes unlike the smaller men's divisions they added last.

Invicta won't see it through 2014 so it's good to see a division of talent like that get a break. And to crown a champ at the end of the season? Love it!

TUF18 was a fine roster as it was.

TUF20 looks to be even better

TUF 18 was a joke. Maybe on paper they were supposed to be good but if that's the skill level brought to the ufc they should be back on the regional circuit.
