    IDK, but I'm also guessing that you are a much better person to answer that then me.

    But it does kinda beg the question that if UFC/Dana can't legally stop the fight, why does everybody keep circling around to them being a player in whether or not it happens? From the sounds of Floyd and Connor this should/would otherwise be done before now.

    They can make life difficult for sure. I imagine they'd file an injunction and that'd go to court. I know in the past Don King used to enjoin fighters, I think including Lennox Lewis, from fighting when he claimed they owed him fights under contracts. But employee law has changed a lot since then and courts are very loathe to enforce restrictive covenants.

    Oh man, Putin is taking all our best fighters. Roy Jones, Floyd Mayweather, Steven Seagal.

    If it's a plot by Mayweather to draw Trump into a bidding war.....frickin brilliant

    Thoughts from UFC Fight Night 107:
    • Gunnar Nelson really impressed, and I love his attitude based on the post-fight interview.
    • In the undercard, Marc "Bonecrusher" Diakiese was also super impressive, and not just because of his 30-second knockout. Incredibly quick, he was toying with his opponent and throwing undefended acrobatic kicks...with power. Currently 3-0 in the UFC (12-0 in MMA). He's also an entertainer and should be fun to watch in the future.
    • Jouban looks exactly like a young Jean-Claude Van Damme, and his style of fighting helps in this regard.
