Finally, a major UFC event is approaching. It's been over a month since the last one and sport could use something of gravity to buoy it a bit. UFC 210 isn't the biggest card any of us have ever seen, but the main and co-main events offer enough to count. The rest of the card also has some intriguing contests on it with the return of Will Brooks against a now-lightweight Charles Oliveira, the second appearance of Cynthia Calvillo and more. Most notably, perhaps the co-main event between Gegard Mousasi and Chris Weidman is the most interesting fight of them all.

It's also been revealed former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is returning to the UFC...sort of. He'll speak to the media on Friday in Buffalo ahead of the pay-per-view event. The big question for me heading into that is not merely what he'll say, but what we want him to say. I'm sure there is an enormous amount of pressure on him to say the kinds of things that play well in focus in groups. What he does could tell us a lot about his outlook and what it means for his future.

There's also the announcement of Robbie Lawler vs. Donald Cerrone, Sage Northcutt's brief hiatus, Gegard Mousasi's media candor and more.
