  2. I wished Mighty Mouse had fought out his contract. The Ben Askren trade makes me wonder what in the hell is going on. Sometimes, the right hand doesn't know what the left one is doing. Also, I think they wanted to give the finger to Bellator. I honestly thought he should have went to Bellator talking about Mighty Mouse. Scott Coker would have used him correctly and launched the men's flyweight division. I know at UFC 232: 4. Illr Latifi vs 7. Corey Anderson. Does that serve as the backup fight if something happens to Jon Jones or Alexander Gustaffon. I think at worst, I can see UFC asking Anthony Smith to be on standby just in case something happens. He did a perfect fight against the number 2 ranked Light Heavyweight Contender. Smith was ranked #10. I can see him jumping toat least #3 when Karyn released the rankings on Wednesday on UFC Tonight.
