Words and things, mostly words.
It is with absolutely zero surprise that I announce yet another fighter has been pulled from a UFC card on the day of the weigh-ins. In this case, women’s flyweight champion Nicco Montano was taken to the emergency room and will not be defending her title against Valentina Shevchenko on September 8th.
I can’t wait for us to go through the whole shtick of ‘discussing’ the issues with extreme weight cutting, like we do every time this happens — which is almost every pay-per-view at this point — and then do precisely nothing to affect any change. I also expect the usual barrage of claims of cowardice or fear on the part of Montano, from the troglodytes who comprise a majority of the MMA fanbase.
