    Started with XFFC demanding that Sigvaldason have an immediate rematch with Imperato. (3 straight losses)

    Even tho Sigvaldason took it on 2 weeks notice.

    XFFC guy then confused his organization with the UFC and himself with Dana White.

    I’m sure they take consolation in still having Stoute as a champ and at least Imperato will always be the “you peoples” champ lol
