- Bloody Elbow noted this past weekend that Brock Lesnar has been dropped from the official UFC rankings. Former UFC champions Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida, who have also being flagged by USADA for failed tests, were also dropped.
- MMAFighting.com recently spoke with UFC lightweight Jim Miller, who is one of Mickey Gall's coaches. Gall will be facing CM Punk next month at UFC 203 on September 10th. During the interview, Miller said that he thinks Punk has no chance in the fight.
"It's Mickey's third pro fight," Miller said. "There's a lot of pressure. He handled that first fight fantastically. The pressure involved, coming in and having all this hype around him, he handled it great. There's going to be even more for this one. Even though I think his opponent is less dangerous — he is taking a step down opponent wise — you can't let the nerves get to you. Hopefully, he can keep everything in check. He's got a good head on his shoulders. I think he will. I don't think CM stands a chance."
- Speaking of Punk, the CM Punk documentary, Evolution Of Punk, debuts next week. Director Rory Karpf posted this behind-the-scenes photo from the documentary on Twitter today:
