MMA Scribbles Newsletter -The One After UFC 270- Issue #37

MMA Scribbles Newsletter
Never split the difference

UFC 270
My picks from the last newsletter fell out because the bout between Rodolfo Viera and Wellington Turman got scratched last minute due to illness. However, I broke event since I did a prop bet for the main event to end via decision, so it wasn’t all bad.
Still, a lot of other things happened at UFC 270 that stuck with me which you can always check out over at MMANews.com.
7 Takeaways from UFC 270: Ngannou vs Gane
The UFC as We Know it is Gone
We briefly mentioned it on the podcast (Coast-2-Coast Combat Hour) but with the release of their NFTs (Non-fungible token) and what we’re seeing from fans and media at events, the sport has grown into something and I’m not sure if I like it. The are more characters in the media that cover the sport than analysts and story tellers. The Tik Tok crowd are the ones buying these online collectibles and they seem to be doing well.
Th plus side as far as the NFTs go is that 50% of the revenue goes to the fighters. But it you know nothing of NFTs then it is hard to get folks to buy them. Those three letters are all over the place though, and have been almost all of 2021, so they won’t be going anywhere.
Check out my piece over at MyMMANews if you want to no more about them.

Francis Ngannou
Ngannou successfully defended his UFC title at UFC 270 and while it was not the best fight on the card, (Moreno and Figueiredo get that honor) he was able to defend it while not only dealing with injuries but the backdoor negotiating tactics from the UFC. Oddly enough, by the time you read this I would not be surprised if something comes of it during today’s exclusive Q&A, produced by the UFC and ESPN that will address this.

The last time we got something like this, Cris Cyborg was released from her contract after she posted a video of her trying to talk to Dana White directly about her potential rematch with Amanda Nunes when she was still with the UFC. This random Q&A’s timing makes me think thins we’re about to see something like that again.
