Rousey tweeted about the role this afternoon.
- Floyd Mayweather will be fighting what is supposed to be his final fight this weekend. Mayweather will face Andre Berto, who has lost three of his last six fights, and has won only three bouts since December 2010. The price tag for the PPV is $75. We'll have a report following the bout Saturday night.
- While this weekend's UFC 191 wasn't the biggest (or tenth) biggest show of the year, the event did have major ramifications on the rankings.
John Lineker had a huge impact on two divisions, as he showed up at #14 in the bantamweight rankings. That's probably a bit low for him, but he'd previously fought at flyweight, where he fell six spots to #14 because of the switch. This allowed several fighters to move up a spot. Ali Bagautinov also re-appeared in the rankings following his suspension.
Paige Vanzant moved up a spot to number 6 in the women's strawweight division, while Raquel Pennington is now ranked #13 in the women's bantamweight division. Corey Anderson also debuted at #15 in the light heavyweight division, one spot behind Jan Blachowicz, whom he defeated.
