John Rallo Reviews UFC 200 And The Future Of The Company

John Rallo is the main promoter of Shogun Fights and an MMA trainer.

John joined Ken and Steve to talk about the UFC 200 pay-per-view and the future of the UFC after their recent sale for $4 billion dollars.

John started off by talking about what the biggest story line of UFC 200 was saying "the biggest story was the pre-story of Jon Jones being dropped off the car...but the biggest story had to be Brock Lesnar returning and coming back with a short training schedule and winning." When asked about the women's title change John said "I thought Amanda was going to be the person to beat was a super impressive performance, she's a great striker and a black belt...she's the first openly gay fighter to win a championship in the UFC."

When asked about the Jon Bones Jones suspension John said "it depends, there is a lot of fishy stuff going on with that...I hate to jump on Jon because if it was a tainted supplement those suspensions are only 4-6 months, they leaked yesterday that they think he failed for more than one substance." As for what he thinks will happen with any suspension John said "I think he may get hit with a 2-4 year suspension...I hope as a fan and for Jon's sake its a 4-6 month rather than 2-4 year suspension."
