  1. Cody finally got the respect in the rankings. He returned at #7. I know Cody called out Bryan Caraway who is #4 for UFC 203. The panel that Karyn worked with on Saturday even thinks that is a good fight that could put Cody in the title hunt. I think Renan should stay at Featherweight. Jeremy is a beast who says Dana promised him 'something', I dont know what. He told reporters at the press conference and Megan Olivi who was the 4th member for FS1 that he plans to stay in shape in case something happens to either Jose or Frankie. If Jose and Frankie go with no injuries will be interesting to see what happens to Jeremy. Jessica Eye needs to step up her game. I honestly thought seeing her team mate Stipe winning the UFC World Heavyweight Championship at UFC 199 would do it but I guess not. She is actually 1-4, 1NC in the UFC. Her only win was when she beat the crap out of Leslie Smith at prelims for UFC 180. She actually defeated Sarah Kaufmann by decision at prelims for UFC 166 but was over turned because she tested positive for marijuana. She needs to step it up or she will get pink slipped.I think the Floyd vs Conor fight is a bunch of crap. Its only done cause Dana is trying to pressure Nate Diaz into signing for the rematch at UFC 202 on August 20th but Nate hasnt signed. I think part of it is that Dana is trying to get Nate to make it again at Welterweight when on a full camp Conor should make 155. I will honestly be pissed if this happens cause Conor needs to prove that he is UFC Featherweight Champion. I am sure Dana will use the fact that Jose Aldo went 14 months between Chad and Conor.I am looking forward to UFC 199. I know the panel that will be covering this will be pacing back and forth. Dom defends the UFC Bantamweight Championship against #2. Urijah Faber also Luke Rockhold defends the UFC Middleweight Championship against #4 Micheal Bisping. Dom needs to look good with finishes. He is Mr. Decision. 14/21 wins are by judges decision. Anything can happen. I give Micheal a good chance to win cause Luke still has his mind on Chris Weidman. I think Urijah should kick Dom's butt. Dom only defeated TJ cause of the fact that it was TJ's first fight since the crap on TUF 22 when Conor accused TJ of being a sick in the grass and running away to Elevation Fight Team in Denver, CO
