- Despite the fact that Tito Ortiz and UFC President Dana White have had a rocky relationship, Ortiz spoke highly of him in a new interview with Sirius XM Rush. Ortiz was asked about how he thought the UFC would do if it sold and White wasn't involved.

"I think the promotion would completely fail," Ortiz said."It would crash and burn, that's my opinion. I think Dana does a great job with the promotion. Sometimes we don't agree on the same things but that's just between me and him. It's a girlfriend-boyfriend type of relationship, him being the girlfriend of course."

- Controversial welterweight fighter Rousimar Palhares was defeated in quick fashion this weekend at the same Venator event in which Jason "Mayhem" Miller showed up way overweight. Palhares had his WSOF title stripped last year when he once again held a leglock too long. This has been a common theme in Palhares' career. Palhares was knocked out by Emil Weber Meek in under a minute.


- Paige VanZant created a bit of a fuss this weekend as she posted a provocative photo on her Instagram, which can be seen below. VanZant has made it to the finals of Dancing With The Stars, which she's been on the last couple of months.
