The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill
The rumor of Glory/DREAM buying out ONE FC is still holding strong. According to some, the estimated amount of the acquisition is around $16-19 million for the Asian promotion.
Hell nooo!! I do not want ONE FC to die.
How the fuck is that possible??? Dream does not has money to pay their fighters and make shows, however somehow they have money to buy an org that so far has been doing very very good???
Where is the logic in that??
I mean, if it was a guarantee that Dream would be doing shows on a constant basis without any rumours that they are in bankrupcy then it's Ok. An alliance between DREAM's way of doing shows (ala Pride), Glory and One FC fighters would be epic!!
But I am afraid that Dream is going to buy (Kill) One FC. And in few months they will say that they do not have money so they are folding out.
One more thing. When they are announcing the fights for their NYE show?
I do not understand why always they announce most of their fights only 1 or 2 weeks before the event. How the fighters are supposed to be prepared with just a week or 2 of proper training?
Diaz vs Hendrix, Iron Jaw vs Iron Fist, this bout should happen for the the number one contender status. That is if Diaz can get past KOS, If Diaz wins and doesn't have any injuries. he could fight again probably as soon as April or May and We could see George again in July or August. Of course I'd like to see George fight sooner, but I think we'd get the best possible contender this way. Hendrix did defeat Fitch, it was a flash ko and the same with Kampman, but If he can be the winner of Kos/diaz in similar fashion then you can really promote this as a huge PPV against GSP. He most dangerous test to date.
No one has a more legitimate claim to be #1 contender than Johnny Hendricks. Diaz has 0 top ten wins in the UFC, Hendricks has 3 in a row, and arguabley a few of them top 5.
Now Diaz is supose to fight Hendricks for the #1 contender?...And coming off a lost?
I just dont get it.
Hendricks can knock anyone out if he lands that bomb on their jaw.
Call it the H Bomb Junior.
This Glory business plan is starting to remind me of the Elite XC days. They were buying up good shows like icon sport, cage rage, and rumble on the rock and then they went out of business.
I'm really enjoying glory, but they've already obtained "It's Showtime!" earlier this year, and I'm not too comfortable with all these eggs being placed in one unproven basket.
so what exactly has diaz done to be in a #1 contenders match? He's less deserving at this point then michael bisping.
I feel really bad for Johny Hendricks if he has to fight again to be a #1 contender. He is 14-1 overall record, and a 9-1 UFC record. He has consecutively beat three top 5 WWs: Fitch was #2 at the time when they fought, Koscheck was #4 when they fought, and Kampmann was #4 when they fought. Two of them by brutal KO's. That's a much better track record than any other WW (excluding GSP but he's the champ). I can't think of any WW contendor that has had that impressive of a streak to get a title shot, hell there are very few contenders for any belt that had to do this.
Zuffa, give him his bloody title shot!
