Next weekend, after all your presents have been unwrapped and you’ve cashed in those Walmart giftcards, is UFC 232. It’s the UFC’s year-end pay-per-view, and since the organization likes to make a big deal of those, they’ve finagled Jon Jones to come back and rematch Alexander Gustafsson.
Naturally, the Jones vs. Gustafsson fight is garnering all the attention. Which sucks, because the biggest female match-up to make in the entire sport is going down with featherweight champ Cris Cyborg fighting bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes. And no one cares!

So who’s going to be tuning in to watch two of the best female fighters go at it in a superfight vs. who’s tuning in for unrepentant drug addict Jon Jones?
