Typical boksing. The bout was not selling Jack. So these muthasuckas went up the hill and to Jill talked MACK. But she said, "Ain't buyin' dat weak ____ _____! So the money powers that be said, "Danggit! No JILL! We ain't payin' dat bill."

So all you hardcore fans need to CHILL! That's just way the game goes. It is a straight-up crooked-arse banana, so don't go ape-syet. Hehehe! I'm reminded of the song lyrics: "Momma said dat there will be night like this." Holla!

Don't mean to get too far off topic, but this is where I would not mind an attempt at finding Ortiz another opponent. I know it is super short notice, but the practice of getting an opponent to replace a fighter dropping out is one I would like to see more of
