New episode of the #HelwaniShow  pod is up! * Massive honor having @richeisen  to reminisce about the late, great Stuart Scott. * @marc_raimondi  on McGregor-Cerrone, Khabib-Ferguson and more. + Trivia show details and TST’s minimalist tip of the week.

Brian Ortega is out of the Dec. 21 main event fight against Chan Sung Jung due to an undisclosed injury, according to multiple sources. More coming shortly.

Who’s the favorite to win? Can we get odds again, @MMAOdds ?

Frankie Edgar is the frontrunner to replace Brian Ortega versus Chan Sung Jung on Dec. 21, sources say. Looking good. Yes, he’s scheduled to fight Cory Sandhagen next month, but UFC is hoping to keep the fight in tact, too. They would have to assess after the South Korea fight.

Jared Cannonier’s manager @LouDiBono  tells me they have signed their bout agreement to face Robert Whittaker on March 7, however, the fight isn’t finalized yet because sources say Whittaker still wants that Darren Till fight in London. Interesting one. Expect a decision soon.

Asked @cors_life  how he felt about potentially losing the @FrankieEdgar  fight next month. In short, he isn’t happy. Here’s what he said:

Rogan: Why the flying knee? Masvidal: Because he’s a bum.

This video of Buddy McGirt urging Maxim Dadashev to stop fighting was hard to watch Friday, it’s even harder now. Heart-breaking.

Trump just turned around to acknowledge the crowd and was met with noticeable cheers and very little boos.
