Paul Felder had a lot happen in the past 24 hours- first Al Iaquinta took away the second fight in 2018 from Felder, as James Vick was tapped to replace him against Justin Gaethje. This left Felder without an opponent... but then a Yancy Medeiros injury opened the door to a late-notice welterweight fight with Mike Perry.

Mike Perry vs. Paul Felder is going to be a very violent fight. Felder has some balls on him to step up against one of the biggest hitters in the division above his.

I believe the medical term for this is “gnarly”- Johnny Case had his eyelid cut by a toenail in sparring.

This was a funny headline. Conor McGregor isn’t running out of money, but congrats to an opposing manager for saying something that got people’s attention.

Yoel Romero posting his passed USADA test letters is a great quiet comeback to Robert Whittaker’s equally polite “magic” quasi-accusation.
