Nadia Jagessar, who’s become a fan favorite throughout the first season of Netflix’s newest reality dating series “Indian Matchmaking,” has responded to a fellow contestant’s claims that she ghosted him, despite the fact that he was the one who didn’t show up for two scheduled dates during the show. So if he considers that ghosting, that’s fine,” Jagessar told the New York Post in reference to Vinay Chadha, a man she was set up with on the show.

Most fight fans probably would agree UFC was worth the wait. But he’s definitely at the point in his career where matchmaking matters.
In , the UFC decided to stop other MMA outlets from telling the world how fighters should be ranked, and instead decided to release their own official list for every weight class. Fans from all over the world now regularly flock to the official UFC rankings , which are updated about 36 hours after every card. However, with official rankings being available, fans are quick to point out discrepancies between who the UFC books in high profile fights and what the rankings tell us.
For example, Nick Diaz and Chael Sonnen and Anthony Pettis have all been booked for title fights in divisions where they are not the No. It is obvious that the UFC will continue their history of booking what they think is best for both fans and the organization, regardless of what the rankings denote. We are not here to say that the UFC is wrong for this decision.
However, here is a look at the pros and cons of ignoring official rankings when matchmaking. Fight fans are incredibly vocal when it comes to bookings. They know what they want to see and will not hesitate for one moment to tell you about it. Sometimes, fans want fights that don’t exactly match up with the current divisional rankings.
If White had ignored the rankings, JDS vs.
Bellator gives Season 8 matchmaking to the fans with “Vote for the Fight”
The main event was initially supposed to be Khabib Nurmagomedov defending his UFC lightweight title against Tony Ferguson in Brooklyn, but the coronavirus forced the event out of New York and Nurmagomedov got stuck in Russia due to travel restrictions. The venue is on Native American, sovereign land, and therefore didn’t have to abide by the state’s regulations. Nobody wants to see sports return more than we do, but we didn’t feel this was the right time for a variety of reasons.
Okamoto: Pay him some compensation for a camp that began back in December, and a willingness to move on to Justin Gaethje when Khabib Nurmagomedov became unavailable. Then promote him during this downtime, encourage people to watch his fights, get to know him, see what an entertaining and talented fighter he is. And then book that man to a championship fight against Nurmagomedov for the sixth time.
Catch me a bout!” For many fight fans, and a surprisingly large amount of fighters as well, the role of matchmakers is unknown, misunderstood, and somewhat of a.
There were great back and forth contests as well as plenty of finishes that had the MMA fan base buzzing all night. Junior dos Santos — Following all of the fights this past Saturday, I think this is the toughest future to predict and that is simply because of the state of the Heavyweight division. It seems victory for anyone in the top 10 could potentially launch themselves into consideration for title contention.
JDS was very honest with himself following the loss, admitting a long road ahead to another title opportunity. Francis Ngannou — I would really like to see Francis get one more under his belt but that is unlikely because of the state of the division. If he does not receive a shot at the winner of Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic, Volkov is the only option as Francis has made quick work of the top 5 in the division. Joseph Benavidez — Henry Cejudo.
UFC 249 postponed: Now what for the fighters and the UFC?
I saw several debuts and took notice of the way they prepared themselves, carried themselves, acted in the ring before the fight, and of course…their techniques and strategy during the fight. It goes without saying that preparation is key. Your natural ability, skill, and training have a large part to do with winning. This is the truth and dirty side of boxing. Many fights are put on in order to develop fighters rather than to give fans a fair and even-sided fight.
I noticed in the match-ups that all the guys on the A-side the red corner were heavily favored to win.

Fantasy Matchmaking #3
By the time Henry Cejudo left the Octagon on Saturday night at UFC , after defending his bantamweight title against Dominick Cruz and announcing his retirement , the skeptics among his fellow fighters questioned whether the champ was seriously quitting or putting on another performance.

Fans declared Aparna to be arrogant, while matchmaker Sima Taparia faced flak for her blatant body-shaming comments.

Commenters discuss their experiences and opinions with Call of Duty ‘s skill-based matchmaking, and a lot of them are not positive. The most common complaints about the system revolve around the lackluster network connection it causes, which seems to be a staple issue with most games that use it. In exchange, the system disregards matching through quality connection, making an already trying situation worse for fans.
Skill-based matchmaking has never really been the most popular feature in shooting games. Players who do even somewhat decently in their causal games tend to find themselves matched with others who take the game a tad bit more seriously than they do, which turns things into a struggle rather than a fun experience. Infinity Ward does respond to community feedback on Reddit. It could be the hold-up is that the team is working on how to nerf the shotgun without accidentally buffing it this time.
