    I would say the UFC and Invicta have an agreement but I would not say they are co-promoting fights> I get what you are saying but it does not fit the definition.

    Since Tito jumped off the UFC contract DW did say the fight is off the table. I'd say DW doesn't do it out of spite. haha!
    Sara Kaufman is fighting under Invicta but is signed to the UFC right now.

    Dana said he worked out a deal with Knapp for Cyborg to do the same but Tito wanted to blaze his own path and possibly burnt that bridge for Cyborg... Who am I kidding, if the money is there, the fight will eventually happen.




    On another Ortiz note, did anyone see Tito's 'self tweet' praising him on his contributions to the world of MMA? Apparently he was trying to quote a fan but it appeared he was Tweeting to himself about how he was major player in early mma success

    "The reason I thought it was a better idea is because it's called management," Ortiz declared.

    It doesn't have to be an all or nothing thing. You can watch more than 1 org, you know?
    and i do watch more than 1 org, i watch any mma i can find. sure cyborg may be technically unranked but do you really consider her to be behind anyone else at 145?

    For super fights, it's best to strike when the iron is hot. Planning on a super fight a year down the road based on the outcome of 6 or so fights is so risky it's just stupidity.
    If Cyborg wins right now, the division goes under and there is no future in the UFC.

    The best path is the next best organization.

    He had better hope Cyborg wins, and impressively, otherwise this could quite possibly become Fedor mkII.

    The UFC will build the 135 division and make sure they have good & marketed fighters to challenge for the title.

    I think this plan was best for WMMA Ronda will make the div grow were if Cyborg won now it could almost kill it. I'm sure Tito has in her contract if what he wants happens Cyborg could fight Ronda without CO promoting. I don't like Tito but that doesn't mean I think he's dumb. He said a 3 fight contract now I would assume there nothing in that contract to stop him from his plans.
