One fan commented, “I didn’t like that Moreno was training so far from home anyway, he should go to team alpha male, dudes his size and good wrestling base.

Sheldon Wescott felt, “That’s such bs.. I thought fighters were independent contractors……….

A fan mentioned, “So does this mean Brandon won’t fight?

Another fan commented, “Coach who fixed bets against his injured fighters. Before yall ask.

Further, a social media user was of the opinion, “Don’t cut a guy for his ties. Terrible ufc. Get rid of the source

Yep homeboy leg was messed up from camp and they said ” LETS MAKE A $H1T LOAD OF MONEY BY BETTING YOU WONT MAKE IT OUT THE FIRST ROUND ” since we know we are not gonna win the fight we might as well give our selves our very own fight of the night bonus !! 😂SMFH.

Cut miner for not disclosing an injury that had a impact on the betting odds and TJ Pillishaw is still on the roster 😀 what’s a joke.”

Additionally, a user commented, “Fun Fact after the chiefs won the superbowl he took a short notice fight because he’s from Kansas City and hes a bookie 😂😂 Look it up!!!
