As for the rest of tonight’s broadcast, it will be the final charge to Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Make sure to join us here at starting at 8 PM EDT for streaming live results and your discussion.

- Speaking of Hell in a Cell, Enzo Amore and Big Cass will face Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson at the show in Boston, MA on Sunday.

- While Dan Henderson retired from mixed martial arts after his fight against Michael Bisping earlier this month, another great appears to be at the end of his career. Uriah Fabertold The MMA Hour on Monday that he plans to retire after his fight against Brad Pickett at UFC on FOX 22 in his hometown of Sacramento, California on December 17, 2016. Faber (33-10) has fought for nearly thirteen years but has just one win in his last four fights, three in his last seven. Jimmie Rivera beat him last month via unanimous decision at UFC 203. Faber plans to call it quits regardless of the outcome.

- Are you not a UFC fan yet? The promotion has given you a great chance to check out what they’re all about by posting Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz 2 at UFC 202 for free at this link.

- Jon Jones is hoping to get a significant reduction to the sanction he faces from the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) due to his failed drug test prior to his fight (which was pulled from the card) against Daniel Cormier at UFC 200. The claim from Jones’s camp is that he took a product that included the two estrogen blockers but they were not labeled. They also claim the USADA, the organization that handles UFC’s drug testing, has found the same thing. Jones’s hearing with the NAC is scheduled for October 31, 2016 where he faces as much as a one-year suspension.
