Did Joanna Jedrzejczyk Just Get Screwed by the UFC?

It’s tough being a former champ, and that’s probably especially true if you’re Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

The former queen of the strawweight division put the new weight class on the map, and beat nearly everyone put before her. She also got to be the center of the UFC universe – or at least a part of it – and entire cards were erected around her fights.

Now, she’s offered match-ups, and after she agrees to them, they get snatched away and given to others.

In case you didn’t know, the UFC was struggling to find a title fight for UFC 230, and nothing was coming together for the Madison Square Garden show. Jedrzejczyk, meanwhile, was supposedly going to take on Valentina Shevchenko for the vacant flyweight title at UFC 231. Then came the ol’ switcheroo, and now Shevchenko will scrap against Sijara Eubanks for that belt. Where does that leave the former strawweight champ?

In the cold, apparently.

And she’s a little peeved about it. As per an Instagram post:

Nick Diaz Just Got Hit With Another Felony Charge

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title contender and longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran, Nick Diaz, is taking his licks from the Clark County District Attorney’s office — and his case hasn’t even gone to trial yet.

Diaz, 34, was hit with a second felony charge on Tuesday (July 10, 2018) when prosecutors filed an amended complaint, which now includes a felony count of battery constituting domestic violence by strangulation and felony battery domestic violence resulting in substantial bodily harm.

“We were surprised that the state filed an amended complaint in court this morning given that there is no new evidence that would warrant adding charges,” attorney Ross Goodman told MMAjunkie.com. “Regardless, we are confident that that truth will come to light vindicating Mr. Diaz after a thorough cross-examination exposing inconsistent and contradictory allegations.”

Diaz was arrested back on May 24 after allegedly injuring a female acquaintance. He was arrested and initially charged with felony domestic battery, but later released on $ 18,000 bond. UFC has frozen his contract and will not take any action until the legal process is complete, stressing its code of conduct while also citing the right to due process (read the full statement here).

The Stockton slugger has not competed since his 2015 no contest opposite Anderson Silva.

Did Drake Just Namedrop Max Holloway?

A lyric in the song ‘8 Out Of 10’ from Drake’s new album ‘Scorpion’ sure sounds like it’s talking about ‘Blessed’

Did R&B / hip hop superstar Drake namedrop UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway in his latest album, Scorpion?

Drake has made several appearances backstage at UFC events and even introduced Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather to the crowd during the Toronto stop of their world tour. But does his knowledge of cage fighting extend to “Blessed?”

Here’s the lyrics in question, from the song ‘8 Out Of 10’:

“Max said they only bless when they attached to you
The only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rappin’ to
And the product is still the best though
It’s only good in my city because I said so
Just to fit the estate man, I had to cop a feel like presto, voilà, tada
Never a matter of ‘could I?’ or ‘should I?’
Kiss my son on the forehead then kiss your ass goodbye
As luck would have it I’ve settled into my role as the good guy
I guess luck is on your side”

And Max’s response when asked about it: a shrug emoji.

Either way, the featherweight champ is into it, which is unsurprising considering he walked out to a Big Sean song featuring Drake for his fight against Jose Aldo at UFC 218.

The UFC was also quick to jump on it in a bid to promote Holloway’s title defense against the extremely dangerous Brian “T-City” Ortega at UFC 226 on July 7th.
