Fighter's Fury: UFC 217 Preview

Fighter's Fury

Tobin recaps Anthony Joshua's 10th round TKO victory over Carlos Takam. Was the referee wrong to stop the fight? Will Anthony Joshua fight Deontay Wilder next? These promoters can't make the mistake of making fans wait for this bout too long. It's understandable why Joshua wants to make Wilder wait but what can come close to this for him box office-wise outside of Tyson Fury's return? Shifting to the UFC, last night in Brazil, Derek Brunson gave Lyoto Machida a brutal return to the cage. Will "The Dragon" continue fighting? What will it take to get Derek Brunson back in title contention? In the co-main event Colby Covington defeated Demian Maia and got right into it the the hostile crowd. He said Brazilians are "filthy animals". He's going right to the school of Chael Sonnen for being the bad guy. Does that kind of promotion still work these days and does it benefit him to do that in getting a Tyron Woodley fight. He and Woodley are already getting into it on social media. They have a previous history. Is it enough for Colby to leapfrog Robbie Lawler and Rafael Dos Anjos? UFC 217 is next week. Tobin explains why he doesn't think GSP is going to get the ending he hopes for and why we may not get a lot of change after next Saturday.
