Incompetent NSAC judge given ‘small break’, may judge UFC 216
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Why after 24 years are there judges in MMA like Adalaide Byrd who couldn’t tell you how to escape a Guillotine? Add in her hugely controversial boxing score for Canelo Alvarez over GGG and Byrd’s presence becomes something worse than baffling. Jack de Menezes for the Independent reports that executive director of the Nevada Athletic State Commission Bob Bennett confirmed Byrd is currently subject to a “small break” in order to review her performance.

Rematch between ex-UFC champ Jose Aldo and Ricardo Lamas targeted for December
(mmajunkie.com)
Jose Aldo has been clear about his desire to return to the octagon in 2017. Thanks to a familiar foe, it seems he’ll be able to get his wish. Brazil’s Combate.com says the ground has been prepared for a rematch between former 145-pound champion Aldo and contender Ricardo Lamas – who unsuccessfully challenged for the then-champ’s belt at UFC 169 in 2014. According to the report, both men have said yes to a meeting in December, but have yet to set a specific date. Aldo’s original plan was to fight at UFC 217, which takes place in New York City on Nov. 4. But, also according to the report, the promotion opted for the following month after Lamas asked for more time. This would entail one of two likelihoods: UFC 218, which takes place in Detroit on Dec. 2, or UFC 219, set for Dec. 30 in Las Vegas.

Luke Rockhold Plans Move To Light Heavyweight After Daniel Cormier Retires
(mmaweekly.com)
Luke Rockhold has some unfinished business in the UFC middleweight division, but it doesn’t sound like the former champion plans on staying at 185 pounds that much longer. On Saturday night, Rockhold dispatched former World Series of Fighting champion David Branch with an impressive second round submission due to strikes, which put him back in the win column after suffering a loss to Michael Bisping last June. Rockhold wasted no time proclaiming his intention to go after Bisping and the middleweight title once again, but from the sound of things he’s got limited time left in the division.
