Post by: Monty Burns on November 15, 2015, 12:38:14 PM
Anybody ells like MMA ? What did you think of UFC 193 ?

Was a really good fight with James Moontasri some good taekwondo skills

My fav Joanna  Jędrzejczyk vs Letourneau was a super good fight aswell . I though JJ was gonna knock her out in round 2
but was a much tougher fight then I thought . I guess Letourneau droppding down in weight and being a bigger girl
was part of that .  Still JJ fucked her up for 5 rounds ,

Rousey Vs Holm was a good fight too , Holm was kiting rousey around the ring and just punching her in the face . Rousey looked really out of it ?  maybe a bad weight cut ? or the opening punches ?  she just looked slow and gassed out . Anyways super good knock out
she stuck to the game plan and fucked her up

Rousey bought into her own hype, she fell in love with her mediocre striking ability and got exposed by a former kickboxing and boxing champ.  From the first time she got hit in the face you could tell that she didn't like it, to make matters worse Holly took her down once and also escaped Rousey having her on top on the ground in round 1.  Best part of the fight besides the knockout was when Holly ducked under Rousey and she went flying into the cage. 

Maybe Dana can promote the real womens star Joanna.  She's a beast.

Ill agree on most of that. The punches she got in the start of the fight fucked her up . Ive seen the fight afew times now and just seems she got rocked and she was out of it . Couldnt focus anymore but still trying to push the fight . But for every punch she just went more and more out of it . She took some amazing punches in her hand . And the duck under holm did when rousey ended up in the cage was a " holy shit " moment

I though the Joanna fight was awesome , but I think the crowd wanted a more dominant fight . Like Eszparza and Penne . Total Destruction . But yeah the canadian was just bigger and could take the damage . But her face was a fucking mess after the fight

Its much harder to push Joanna as a super star , then lets say Rousey . I mean Rousey has that star power , olympic star , good looking,
that kinda of " Im better then everybody " Image . I kind of think Holm is harder to push aswell . She doesnt have that " rousey " factor . She seems kind of timid and shy , and she doesnt trash talk

Joanna is the best though  , she has to have surgery now and then I guess its claudia gadelha time .

They did fight, thats how fights in the real world actually go down. You never see a street fight go for more than 30 seconds, those UFC fags just hug eachother for 15 minutes and call it "fighting." There's boxing, and there's fighting.. UFC is neither

Main events are now 2 women beating the shit out of eachother.. How did UFC get this popular? It was better when you could curb stomp people and elbow some brain damage. Glancing elbows isn't exactly "ultimate" imo... Boxing is way tougher try holding your arms up for 5-10 minutes, those guys do it for 12 rounds vs someone trying to punch their face the entire time.

Frankie Edgar knocking out Mendes was surprising.  I expected him to win but thought it would go to decision.  People seem to forget that Frankie is so skilled.  I hope they go through with Mcgregor/Edgar.

aldo/Mcgregor showed us nothing except that Aldo was mentally unprepared and had been away to long.  He was always talking about moving up to 155 so maybe now is the time with Barao moving to 145.  or maybe Nova Unaio is done.  Who knows. 

Namajunas pretty much murdered PVZ but PVZ looked tough.  Will be interesting to see how she progresses since she is so young.  Tam alpha male seem to have hit a plateau.  Faber/Dillashaw could be good though.

I was disappointed in the Jacare/Romero decision.  I though Jacare won 2 and 3 but Romero was dominant in the first.  not 10-8 dominant but oh well.  Romero/Rockhold should be a good fight.  Romero has never really showed his wrestling, maybe he is saving it Holm style.

Weidman/Rockhold look almost even until the spinning kick.  Neither looked as good as they have in the past.  Usada testing?

Looking forward to mcgregor at 155.  Cowboy or Dos Anjos would be good but Pettis would be an exciting fight.

Looking forward to JDS/Overeem though I feel like one touch on Alistairs chin will be the end like his rothwell fight.

Rousey has come out and said her teeth are loose and she cant even eat a apple for 6 months , none less do sparring . And she is not switching coaches

Dana and UFC says she will be ready for UFC 200 which is in like 8 months

And Holm wants to fight as soon as possible and doesnt want to wait 8 months for the fight

And Mighty Mouse and Joanna both have fights lined up but no set dates !!

Faber wants to fight TJ

So small update

Ronda is out for 3-6 months with no sparring allowed ( head / teeth ) . And shes gonna film 2 movies .
Lorenzo Fertitta says she will be back for UFC 200  facing of against Holly Holm again

UFC 200 is in July , Holly Holm is already back to training . Rousey is making movies and not training

Gonna be KO in round 1 this time

So weak.  They say she is going to film two movies before that.  so basically no time to train striking. 

Plus shows that the UFC has no interest in wmma outside of ronda.

In non UFC news, Fedor's opponent in Rizin is so weak.  A nobody brought in to get punched. I am interested to see Fedor fight again but would have wanted to see a challenge

I think thats abit harsh . They are putting alot of effort into wmma . Its just that Ronda Vs holly rematch is a shitload of money . I think they said Holly would make 7 or 8 million for the rematch .

They treat Joanna and the rest of the strawweights pretty damn good too , Joanna , Rose and Paige are getting good treated . And I think they talked about doing a 125 for womens ?

Fedor Im not sure about , he was amazing , this comeback fight is just a SHOW , people wanna see Fedor , not sure they wanna see him loose vs some killer

Cant wait to Nick Diaz is back


Karolina the new polish strawweight against Markos . She took the fight on real short notice and it was her first fight . Give a year or 2 and she can be pretty damn good . nice ground and pound

Cerrone got rushed by RDA , Think they said the knee  to the ribs started it followed by the kick ,   and then it was just cowboy trying to hang on while RDA went for the kill

Cerrone is a good hammer but a poor nail.  He folds i.e. the Pettis fight.  Plus he starts slowly.  Probably shouldn't have called RDA Frankenstein.

So did anybody see 195 ??

Albert Tumenov vs Lorenz Larkin was a good fight , I was hoping Tumenov would win ,and he did but he didnt dominate as much
as his last fight , and his leg was getting attacked hard

 Stipe Miocic vs Andrei Arlovski . over way too fast , and I was hoping Arlovski would win . Funny how Stipe was screaming at Dana asking for a title shot

Robbie Lawler vs Carlos Condit . Pulling for Condit and I kind of thought he won . But it was a battle and pretty fucking amazing fight

Lawler-Condit lived up to the hype. Scoring really needs an overhaul, not so much becuase I thought Condit got burned, but more because deciding who wins a fight should be about who beat the other guy up more, not who did better in 3 of 5 rounds.

Sad to see Arlovski lose. Always dug this --

Well they could go to Pride rules which was based on damage/winner of the whole fight.  They need to implement the pride gloves too to help with the eye pokes.  Or the new Bellator gloves.

I wanted Condit for the win as well and think he did enough.  They are saying there might be an immediate rematch but we will see, Condit kind of seems over fighting.

I was pretty sure that arlovski was going down like that.  Stipe is really good.  I would like to see him fight Overeem .  I would also like to see Rothwell get into the upper mix.  He slayed overreem and got nothing for it. 

Cerrone is moving up to 170 for his next fight.  It will be interesting to see how it goes.  Ben Henderson has done pretty well.

Lastly Mcgregor vs RDA coming up.  I have to go with RDA

Honestly, I told everyone Conor was going to get exposed by Poirier. Then how Mendes was going to wreck him. Then how Aldo was going to put him in his place. At this point, I think he really does have lucky charms up his ass.

I kinda wish he would have some tune-ups first at 155. Cerrone, Diaz and Pettis all would have been exciting.

Who knows with UFC , either somebody completely destroys somebody in tactics and punching / kicking  like Holm vs Rousey or it can just be a punch like Mcgregor vs Aldo

anyways I thought this was funny

a State Athletic Commission today moved quickly to approve a settlement with suspended UFC welterweight Nick Diaz, voting unanimously to reduce the onetime title challengerís five-year suspension to 18 months with a $100,000 fine.

Diazís suspension runs retroactively to his Jan. 31, 2015 fight with Anderson Silva at UFC 183, which produced the positive test that resulted in his third suspension with the NSAC. He is eligible to fight Aug. 1, per the terms of the settlement.

Submission radio is pretty good too.  Couple of Australian that always have really big names being interviewed.

I was team Diaz the first fight even though I thought Connor might win . Just thought Nate coming in in short notice and connor being on his hype train that it would be too difficult for Nate to win . But Im happy I was wrong . Im team Diaz for almost all fights (unless they are fighting Joanna or Mighty Mouse )  and Im team Diaz for this one aswell

Coming in on a full camp should secure the win again . But hey its MMA , anything could happen

Fights I care about other then the main

Anthony Johnson   vs.   Glover Teixeira ( Should be a real fun fight think Johnson will win and maybe get a title shot from it)      
Rick Story   vs.   Donald Cerrone    ( Everybody loves the cowboy , how can you not ?)
Cody Garbrandt   vs.   Takeya Mizugaki    ( Think Cody has it and might get a title shot out of this or fight TJ )
Artem Lobov   vs.   Chris Avila( Lobov is just living of Connor and getting fights from it , he looked good in the show but hes not)   
Randa Markos   vs.   Cortney Casey ( Markos looked bad her last fight even though she won, but its 115 so only care cause of that)
Neil Magny   vs.   Lorenz Larkin   ( Magny looked amazing the last fight, great cardio and no quit mentality )


Dont really care about the others , but will watch . Theres a press conference next week on WED with Nate and Connor . Might get interesting

8 Days away !!!

Damn, that press conference was pretty great actually.  Love how Nate left as soon as Conor showed up.  Conor was so pissed, haha.


Anyways, I LOVE Nate Diaz.  Him beating Conor last time was the best thing EVER.  I was just jumping and screaming "OH MY GOODNESS!  HE DID IT" For like 20 minutes when that happened.

This time, all signs point to Diaz winning again.  He's looking so ripped and in shape compared to last time, and with a full camp you have to think there is no way Conor beats him.  It also seems like Nate is winning the whole mental game too, which I think always throws Conor off.  I love it.

However...I don't know, I'm so nervous.  Like I've lost sleep over this fight I'm so nervous.  Something in me keeps saying Conor is going to win, and in devastating fashion.  I hope I'm wrong, but I don't know, just my gut is telling me Conor wins.  Which sucks.  I really hope it's nate though.  I kinda hate Conor.  He's fun to have around cause he's so entertaining, but I actually can't stand him.


Anyways, other fights I'm excited about:

Rumble vs Glover (I love both of these guys, everyone is picking Rumble, but I'm going to pick Glover with the upset)
Rick Story vs Cowboy  (Cowboy is on a tear, and yeah everyone loves him)
Garbrant vs  Mizugaki (I'd love to see the Garbrant hype train come to an end, but I think he wins this one by KO early)
Lobov vs Avila (love this matchup, team Conor vs Team Diaz. Lobov is winless in the UFC, so I think he wins, but I'm rooting for Avila)
Markos vs Casey (cheering for Markos cause she's a fellow Canadian, but she's never really looked that impressive, so I think Casey takes it)
Magny vs Larkin (Magny is one of my favourite fighters.  He's got this one)


I have to miss the fightpass, and fs1 prelims cause I'm at a wedding.  So bummed, but hopefully I get home in time to catch the 3 main fights.  Can't wait, yet at the same time I'm so nervous I feel sick to my stomach

Diaz will win regardless if he wins or loses. Even if McGregor wins, that just means they tied and need to do a 3rd fight.

Post by: Blue Fescue on August 19, 2016, 11:07:04 AM
I just can't see Glover winning, Rumble is so strong and fast while glover always looks plodding to me.

Story vs cowboy is interesting as they both fight best as the bully and seem to not do as well under pressure.  going with cowboy though.

garbrandt

Magny

Damn I completely slept on this fight. Isn't this Mizugaki's first fight back since getting blitzkrieg'd by Cruz? Kinda sucks for him, I could see the same sort of thing happening tonight..

Yeah there were a few moments where I was sure Conor was done, but he did a great job of recovering between rounds. Plus all of the blood and damage to his leg kind of fucked Diaz's ability to generate offense later in the fight. He should probably try to get some of his scar tissue removed so he doesn't cut as easily in the future.

Also, how about Anthony Johnson fucking murdering Glover? I think he's the scariest guy in the UFC.

Sooooooo ........ FUCK

I thought Nate won , but who the fuck knows . So close to call and Im biased , since Im a Diaz fan . One thing is sure , it was one fucking amazing fight . So close in the third or was it the fourth when Nate had Conor against the fence and almost knocked him out

I guess in the end this was great for Nate , Conor and the UFC . No losers in this at all  . Conor wins but Diaz looses on points and it was so close it could have gone either way . UFC gets back Conor as mystic mac and he can smack talk again and do what he wants . Diaz gets another fight against conor which he can win and make alot more money again . UFC just makes money on it

If they do it at 155 the winner can get a title fight . Everybody wins . Nate has the 3rd fight !


Anthony Johnsons knockout was amazing , just amazing and it will be a good fight vs DC . Have a hard time backing Johnson cause of his personal life stuff , but he is a good fighter
   
Cowboy another great fight which he won pretty easy

Cody Garbrandt kicking as like always . I guess hes fighting Cruz next ? Cruz will win he is just on another level

Artem Lobov wins but it was not a great fight and cant say I care too much   

Neil Magny   vs.   Lorenz Larkin . I had Magny but he kind of folded in this fight , Larkin was looking super good
Title: Re: Official SLAP UFC/ MMA Thread (Spoilers)
Post by: Blue Fescue on August 22, 2016, 05:53:25 AM
Please no third fight, especially with conor demanding it at 155.  make him defend his belt. 

rumble vs glover prety much went how I thought it would but faster.

I thought Lorenz Larkin was the most impressive of the night,  Magny has looked great since his Maia fight, especially i the lombard fight after barely getting through the first round.  Larkins leg punishment was brutal.

Not looking forward to condit/ Maia.  Condit has always been a favorite but his take down defense is not great.  I like seeing Maia control people but would like to see a classic condit win in what is most likely one of his last fights.

I agree, Johnson is scary, but then you see him fight cormier and see how good cormier is.  jones and cormier are so much better than the other guys it seems.  Light heavy weight needs some new contenders.  

Though it is looking like we will see jones/cormier soon if Dana is right.

Care / Dont Care

Demian Maia   vs.   Carlos Condit            
Anthony Pettis   vs.   Charles Oliveira            
Paige VanZant   vs.   Bec Rawlings   


I Think Maia will take it , soon as he gets in close he is like a anaconda his BJJ is unreal . I Like Condit and Maia , I cant really pick
who I want to win . Both are super nice guys and good fighters . Will be a good fight

Oliviera might win this . I hope Pettis will win but hes lost 3 in a row ? and keeps changing camps , kind of like a shadow of his
former self . Not sure what happen RDA broke him ?

I think Paige will win and want her to win . Shes got a good attitude , she was getting her ass kicked by Rose but she still had a smile
on her face and never gave up really . Hope she has had time to improve and through the years will improve even more

Other fights I dont care for much but they might be good . Hard to top 202 right now
Title: Re: Official SLAP UFC/ MMA Thread (Spoilers)
Post by: The Bullet on August 24, 2016, 08:19:29 PM
Yeah wow, Conor vs Nate was insane.  So damn close.  I also knew they'd give it to Conor just because it would benefit everyone in the end.  Which sucks.  But apparently after his scratch pay, sponsors and ppv buy money he's getting something like 13 million.  Not bad for a guy who was getting 20/20k less than a year ago.  Good for him.  what a war though.  Fight of the Year easily.

Anthony Johnson is a monster!  I was sad Magny lost cause i love that guy, but damn Larkin looked impressive.  Those kicks were viscous. Shit.   And Cody 'NoLove' ugh, i can't stand him, but he is damn good.   I'm a Dom Cruz fan and would be very very nervous if they fought.  But if anyone can beat Cody at this point it's Cruz and his insane footwork.


So onto the next card in Vancouver (fights I care about anyways)

Maia vs Condit (both these guys are great, but I take Maia, his BJJ is too much for anyone to handle)
Pettis vs Oliviera (I like both these guys, but Pettis needs this win so badly, I think he gets it done)
Paige vs Bec (can't stand Bec, but I think she wrecks Paiges pretty face, sad to say)
Joe Lauzon vs Jim Miller (this will be fight of the night for sure!  Lauzon is the man, he takes it)
Alvey vs Casey  (It's smilin Sam's third fight in 3 months.  WTF?  I think he'll win)


Should be a good one

Post by: Blue Fescue on August 25, 2016, 07:59:10 AM
I just have no interest in a third.  tired of the 145 belt being held up.  I would much rather see the alvarez fight or aldo 2.  Nate will lose the third too.  Diaz doesn't adapt. 

Maia will win as Condit takedown defense is not good and never gets better.  plus he starts so slow.  Condit is my favorite fighter but i can't see him winning.  Maia is to determined going for the takedown.

Pettis should take it but who knows, USADA hasn't made him look good.

Paige should take this one. 

Lauzon should win.  As I recall Miller won the last one but has slipped a fair amount since then.

Hopefully Alvey.  Casey seems to gas quickly.  Plus the whole self promotion to black belt that casey did was always kind of weak.

Pretty great card overall.  Well, the main card anyways.

Paige's knockout kick, holy shit!
Really happy for Pettis, he needed that win badly, and to submit that guy was crazy.
Demien Maia, holy shit, that guys BJJ is untouchable.  Felt bad for Condit though.

And fucking shit, did Joe Lauzon ever get robbed.  I had it scored 30-27 for him, can't believe he lost to split decision.  Those judges sucked balls.
Title: Re: Official SLAP UFC/ MMA Thread (Spoilers)
Post by: Monty Burns on August 28, 2016, 12:16:36 PM
Happy for Pettis but he still looks abit shaky . Remember he was the champ . Maybe this can be a turning point for him , lets hope

VanZant , kinda torn the knockout kick was amazing , and kind of fun since bec was trash talking her . But She looked abit all over
the place , kinda lost at times and other times she looked in good control . But yeah amazing kick


Feel bad for Condit , Dude is amazing but I think most people knew that once Maia got ahold of him it was game over . He did it so easy
aswell . just shockingly easy , like a boa or a python , BJJ skills like no other . Think some MMA media said Maia has only been hit 14 times in the last 4 fights ...

The other fights were abit meeeeh , some good some bad .


So wonderboy or Maia will get the title fight . I think both can finish of woodley . I hope Condit doesnt quit , he could still challenge for the title and have other good fights . But He knows best

VanZant is ready for Joanna , I think she can win , She is mentally super tough and her kicks and scrappyness will make her beat JJ easy...

Yeah just kidding =p

you would think Condit would have spent a large majority of his camp on takedown defence.  for some reason it never improves.  It was not secret what Maia was going to do.  As soon as I saw him throwing kicks I knew it was going to be over fast.  the slow start and takedown defence are his fatal weaknesses.

Yeah but at the same time how many players in the NBA were told to cover Jordan ? . Im sure going up against him they watched tapes , talked strat , practised it and then come game time  Jordan still ran and jumped over people .

Maia is arguably the best bjj guy in MMA today , not sure how much take down defence training will do you if you dont have a extensive BJJ background going back years and years

Or maybe Condit has reached his skill cap , maybe he cant make huge improvements anymore . Maybe in his mind there was no way he could get him down and he thought he would KO him
Title: Re: Official SLAP UFC/ MMA Thread (Spoilers)
Post by: Mad Max on August 30, 2016, 02:53:02 PM
Wasn't Condit's gameplan to elbow from the bottom?
Personally, since he got robbed of the title vs Lawler, I think Condit's lost that killer spark and is really thinking about life after the cage.

Demian Maia is awesome at jiu jitsu but I think the UFC are playing him because they don't want to have a middle aged calm family man as their champ. They're in the promo business and they want dollars.

That said if Demian gets his title shot I can see this being the second coming of a Royce Gracie era.

On a sidenote, he fought not that long ago but I'm keeping a close eye on Yair Rodriguez.

Oh yeah, and Conor needs to drop back down to 145 and defend his belt or vacate that strap.
Title: Re: Official SLAP UFC/ MMA Thread (Spoilers)
Post by: Blue Fescue on August 31, 2016, 10:20:35 AM
But Condit has been fighting for 14 years, you would think the fundamentals would all be there.  but he always starts slow and has no takedown defence and it costs him.  I remember reading an interview where he said he didn't really train jiu jitsu, just used the fundamentals that he learned early on.  Seemed kind of ridiculous.  not every opponent is going to strike with you. 

I think Lawler would beat maia, his takedown defense is excellent.

the ufc said Conor will fight at 145 or vacate, they won't strip him.  I want to see the Aldo fight again.  I would also like to see him fight Pettis now that he is there too.

I am hoping Michael Page will have to fight Rory Macdonald in Bellator.  He seems to have a lot of potential but hasn't been fighting the best names.  Hopefully rory gets his nose fixed somehow though first.
Title: Re: Official SLAP UFC/ MMA Thread (Spoilers)
Post by: Monty Burns on August 31, 2016, 01:28:25 PM
Whats in it for Conor fighting Aldo again ?  He has to do a brutal weight cut , has to defend the belt , fight somebody he already beat in 13 seconds , and risk loosing the fight , the belt and his reputation. He just turned around the loss vs Nate

Fighting Nate again , fighting mayweather , or Eddie Alvarez would make sense . If the UFC strips him he can just say " I didnt loose the belt , they took it from me , Aldo ( or who ever ells will be champ ) is a fake champ . " . That will also let Conor mess with Aldo even more

Nate again would be a money fight which he can win and people will watch

Alvarez title fight , less weight cut , winnable fight and still lots of money. If he wins hes a 2 belt champ , or maybe just 1 belt . If he looses he can go down in weight class , fight nate or stay at this weight


I dont know about Condit , maybe he should have done more BJJ , maybe hes over it , maybe hes not good enough . I dont know .
I thought Condit won vs Lawler but its fair to say Im very biased when it comes to judging fights . But its not like anybody got robbed
in that fight . It was super close !


Think Rory Macdonald said on MMA hour that he is taking a year off to let his nose heal . I personally hope they build MVP up slow so he gets even fights and not tested too hard . Nice to see him dominate . Bad for Bellator to put him in vs somebody that would stop his hype

Rustam Khabilov   vs.   Leandro Silva            
Ashlee Evans-Smith   vs.   Veronica Macedo


I Like both Arlovski and Barnett . Hard to pick one since both seem like super nice guys but Ill pick Barnett cause I think Arlovski might be done . Think his chin is done . But it could be a damn good fight

Gustafsson cause Im swedish and cause hes gone through wars . Hoping he will win easy and show off his skill

Latifi , dude is a mountain , and hes swedish , knock out power . might be a super KO

Think Ive seen afew of Rustams fights , he always looks good ,

Macedo , cause I dont know .

Post by: The Bullet on August 31, 2016, 08:03:00 PM
ah man, lots of good discussion up there that I missed out on.

Anyways, I'd love to see Conor fight Aldo again, but I don't know if it'll happen.  I still think Conor would win, but it would still be a completely different fight.  Aldo beating Conor would be the best thing ever though.   I'd love to see Petis take on Holloway, but I don't know who to cheer for cause i love em both.  145 is a pretty great division imo!

And yeah, that Paige kick, was kind of a fluke, cause she did look a little lost in that first round.

I think you guys are right, Carlos is over it.  Losing the decision to Lawler when 95% of the people watching it know you won must be pretty awful (I rewatched that fight recently, and it wasn't even close, judges suck).  Now to lose like this?  I love Condit, but his hearts not in it anymore.

Rory at Bellator is pretty exciting!  He says he's taking another year off to let the nose heal which is smart.  But in the meantime, I can't wait to see more MVP fights. 


Fights this weekend

Arlovski beats Barnett.  Both guys are great, but I think Arlovski wants it more.
Gustofson beats Blachowich.  He's just way more skilled.  DC and Jones both said he was their toughest fight.
Latifi beats Badar.  I've never seen Badar look impressive.

Post by: Blue Fescue on September 01, 2016, 06:51:03 AM
I don't really care what is in it for Conor, he is the champ at 145, defend the belt or give it up.  I want interesting fights  Nate will lose again, Alvarez will win, the Aldo fight is the most interesting.  As Aldo said, it wasn't a fight last time.  He was champ for 10 years or whatever he deserves and has earned the rematch.  The UFC said they won't strip conor.

I like MMA and don't watch boxing partly because there is matchmaking and not cherry picking of opponents by managment.  Though  with Joe Silva leaving matchmaking could get interesting.

It will be interesting to see how much the overeem fight deflated arlovski, he had a lot of momentum going into it.  I think this fight could go either way.  hard to tell.

should be an easy fight for gustaffson

I think Bader will win but who knows Latifi looks amazing sometimes and kind of lost others.

Poor Arolvski.  First min of that fight was insane, then it got pretty boring.  Ah well.


Excited for 203 now.  Very curious to see how quickly it'll take CM Punk to lose

Forgot who said something about Jon Jones , but I hope he never comes back . Dude is a scumbag outside and inside the octagon. The eye pokes and the kicks towards the knees , random other shit . Then outside the drugs , PEDs , multiple traffic violations

and then the hit and run where he collides with the pregnant woman , runs away , runs back ( and has a shot to redeem himself ) but only runs back to grab his drugs and money . Avoids police until he sobers up and then hands himself in ... Dude should be doing years in prison


Gustafsson didnt look himself . And he has said multiple times hes looking for his passion , and cant find it . He didnt seem super stoked on the win either. People got bored during the fight . I was never a big supporter of him so . DC and JJ fight were awesome though

I kind of liked the Veronica Macedo fight , she was showing some nice kicks but maybe UFC first time jitters ? or Ashley was just too good ?
Shame she didnt get the win

Jessica Eye   vs.   Bethe Correia            
Nik Lentz   vs.   Michael McBride            
Ian McCall   vs.   Ray Borg   


I cant pick between Overeem and Miocic , I like both . Maybe I like Stipe better ? hes a real good guy but ... Overeem might win

I really dislike travis browne . I guess most people do right ? Werdum will take this

Punk vs Gall , umm Gall I guess hes younger and better and nobody knows anything about Punk ? this is a real spectacle , bellator style ... Ill still watch it .... 

Faber is always a good watch I think          

   
Andrade vs Joanne Calderwood . Guess my fav fight of the night , Joanne is one of my favs , She is super cute and super dangerous . Real contender for 115 and future 125 champ . Not sure she can ever beat Joanna but she can be nr 1 contender for sure . Super nice knock out vs L?tourneau

Eye vs Correia , For some reason I like watch Correia loosing , not real feelings for Eye but hope she wins

Ian McCall aka uncle creepy , love him , dudes a frequent guest on JRE and the fight companions , interesting and funny dude


Will be a amazing card and a great night !

yup 203 is looking amazing.  definitely going to buy that one.


Stipe vs Overeem  Like both guys, but I think it's Overeems time.  Plus that heavyweight belt is cursed and nobody can defend it.  Would be happy if Stipe won for the home crowd though.

Werdum vs Brown  Werdum is one of my favs, and Travis Brown is one of my most hated.  Lately in these situations I'm always disappointed and my fav fighter loses.  Ugh it hurts.  I think Brown will win, and I hate that.  Hope I'm wrong.

Punk vs Gall  If CM Punk lasts more than 1 minute I'll be shocked.  Video of his sparring looks terrible.  Definitely curious of this one though.  Who knows, maybe he'll surprise us all.  But Gall is no joke and will most likely destroy him.

Fabre vs Riviera.   I have a love/hate with Fabre, but he's scrappy as hell and still has a lot of fight left in him.

Andrade vs Calderwood.  Love Calderwood, you're right, she's such a sweetie, so likeable.  But damn did you see Andrade's last fight?  She looked terrifying.  If you haven't seen it, track it down.  Scary stuff.  I think she wrecks Calderwood.  And I predict she's the next champ at strawwieght.

I know Stipe's a good guy, fighting in his hometown and all but Overeem is a beast and he wants that belt.
Really hope Werdum gets the win. The hype of fighting in a Brazilian got to him I reckon. I used to like Brown but since he switched to Edmond's gym, I can't help but see los after loss...
Did anyone see CM Punk say he was cursed in the Cleveland stadium? Dude's lost already but I don't think he cares. He got in a cage and had a fight and that's all he wanted to prove. If he wins, who does he fight next because the division is pretty stacked. The only way I see him winning is by being a human blanket thanks to his wrestling background - which shouldn't be neglected.
Gunning for Calderwood even though Andrade does look like a beast.


Cowboy vs Lawler at Madison Square Garden - Woo hoo!

Wow, McCall just can't get all the way to a fight.  injuries or opponents dropping out every time. 

Cowboy is in trouble but he has looked really good so who knows.

I like Stipe, Overreem works as a bully but I don't think he can do it to Stipe.  Heavyweight is so crazy though.

Werdum embarrassed brown last time so hopefully he can do it again.

Watch that first round, Travis almost finished him with a big shot.  After that, it was all Werdum, but still, that's why I'm so damn nervous.  Heavyweights can always knock each other out at anytime.

That fight was a easy one for Andrade . Not because she is that good , but because Joanna broke her.  Look at Jessica Penne ,Carla Esparza and
Val?rie L?tourneau . They all looked very different in their next fight after Joanna . Specially Penne and Esparza who both took long time offs and came back looking horrible

Penne didnt do a single thing in the fight vs Andrade , just took it. Joanna is a monster

Yeah Joanna is such a monster no doubt.    And I agree, Penne already looked broken before punches even started getting thrown in her last bout.  But either way, I think Andrage is going to destroy JoJo.  And I love JoJo

Soooooo abit ups and downs this card but overall really good

so first of all vanessa hanson and Chrissy Blair were looking awesome like always =p

anywho !

I totally slept on the Yancy Medeiros    vs Sean Spencer. When I saw the preview fight footage of them I knew it was gonna be a great fight . Medeiros from Hawaii and walking out to skrillex , dancing and singing along . Dude is a bad ass and it was a great fight . Adding him to my fav list for sure


Bethe Correia vs Jessica Eye. I dont know , I guess we all wanted Eye to win but her record is not good . Bethe didnt really do anything in the fight that a better fighter then Eye could have totally run over her


J?ssica Andrade vs Joanne Calderwood . Well I guess Jessica did her job but boring fight as fuck , she just went in there and laid ontop of her and JoJo got up too quick , I guess not that experienced on the ground and got caught . Could have been a great stand up fight but no
Jojo took no damage and she seemed ok about it . She will be back . Joanna would have merked Jessica


Jimmie Rivera vs Urijah Faber boring fight , and Faber might be done , he looked alot better vs Cruz . Nothing more to say


Mickey Gall vs CM Punk Fun fight ! . But like Joe Rogan said . Mickey is a brown belt BJJ vs a white belt . Thats a no brainer . Gall could have done what he wanted with Punk . I think Gall said he had been boxing and wrestling since he was a kid too . Punk has 2 years of training MMA . But it was a fun fight


Fabr?cio Werdum vs Travis Browne Well this was a weird one . Started of so good , flying side kick to the FACE and a amazing round by Werdum . And then it all became boring and the 2 last rounds were ...  But happy Werdum won

And holy shit Werdum kicking Edmund hahahaha

Stipe Miocic vs Alistair Overeem  Great fight !! so many twists and turns . Stipe is damn good , looked calm and took his time , had to chase abit but he did it .  Those punches in the ground and pound were HARD , you could see Overeems head bouncing around and brain shutting off .  KInda bummed about the interview Overeem and Joe did after , Should have left him alone and not push the " tapping " issue

All in all , great card . Clevland crowd was pretty good and they sure showed up for Stipe

Time to watch post show stuff !!! .  Oh and Ill just throw in that while most TUF season are crap , this most recent TUF 24 . First eps looked very good ! . Gonna watch it this season and see whats up

Not shaking Gall's hand is what got him choked out in the first round. I could have seen Mickey letting him play for a round before ending the fight, which Mickey had the power to do from the start.

CM's welcome to the UFC punches were epic, props to Mickey for always showing up.

And Stipe.... Wow. Overeem STILL feeling those punches, regardless of when you read this hahaha

Seems like everybody forgot about this thread . not sure why !?!?!?!?!?

UFC Fight Night: Cyborg vs. Lansberg

Wasnt too excited about this card but ofc still watched it . Roy Nelson kicking the reff and gave him the finger !? wtf . Its been weeks
and still no word on punishment ehhh ?

Cyborg winning was no surprise right ? . In Swedish media Lansberg has been talking alot of smack after the fight , calling out cyborg for doping and that she basically fought a man . But she knew this way before she took the fight . shaaaady

UFC Fight Night: Lineker vs. Dodson

Andre Fili vs Hacran Dias  was a good fight thought Fili showed what he is all about

Brandon Moreno vs Louis Smolka . Wtf what happend ? I thought smolka would dominate . total shock

Alex Oliveira vs Will Brooks . Total bullshit , Brazilian guy came in over 5 pounds over weight . Brooks should have turned down the fight but he would have lost money . Oliveira just used his size and won . Such fucking bullshit , specially the way he won and acted after the fight

John Lineker vs John Dodson . Lineker came in over weight , shocker !? RIGHT !  . Was a good fight , could see it going anybodys way .
But I thought the right man won . I like Lineker but with him missing weight 600+ times I doubt he will get a title shot


UFC 204

Mike Perry vs Danny Roberts . Not a fan of Perry , after the racial stuff . But Roberts just fucked up , gassed out and lost Perry will go against Joubain next !

Leon Edwards vs Albert Tumenov. I really like Tumenov but he wont make it anywhere , great boxing but no skills on the ground

Jimi Manuwa vs  Ovince Saint Preux . Great fight !

Gegard Mousasi    vs Vitor Belfort . Mousasi dominating , good fight , maybe 1 more fight and title shot ? , Belfort might be done

Michael Bisping  vs Dan Henderson . Great fight , Great last fight , what a way to go out , and Bisping still the champ is always great haha


UFC 205

Best fucking card ever . I mean Holy fucking shit , omg ...


Other things

Connor getting fined 150k and 60 hours community service . And then dropping he wont fight in Las Vegas Again

Ronda coming back . But no switch of camp , or coach . Instead of working on her game for 1 year she was doing movies and chilling
I think she will get KOed and then retire

Bummed Rashad's out, but somehow I didn't realize Khabib was fighting so that more than makes up for it. Russians are so goddamned gnarly. At nine I was scared to kickturn frontside, much less wrestle a fucking bear --  www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JD0jVRyIAs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JD0jVRyIAs#)

Well Khabib delivered and definitely worthy of a title shot against Conor. Just got to watch out for that Irish left hand.

JJ and KK had a good battle. Makes me wonder how good you've got to be to beat the champ.

Woodley Thompson could have gone either way.

Stoked for Pennington. She looked good. Meisha's retirement was a bit of a surprise but it makes sense.


On a side note: JJ needs to focus and lose the hypemen crowd signing water bottles for her...

On a second side note: Ronda's probably gonna get merked unless Amanda just charges forward into her Judo ? la Cat Zingano.

Shows how crazy one year can be with being on top of the world and being in the media to just retiring with nothing. I feel Rhonda will be the same way coming the end of the year. We'll see.

That was tough. I honestly didn't think she'd win anyways but she couldn't take a punch for nothing. Although I think her time is over, I hope she continues to fight. Everyone on contact sports loses (aside from Mayweather), so you just got to take it and move on.

Thinking about betting on Anderson Silva... he's old but the other guy might as well lose, especially because this shit is faker than the WWE. The odds are good but the goods are odd. Thoughts from the real fans?
Title: Re: Official SLAP UFC/ MMA Thread (Spoilers)
Post by: Mad Max on February 13, 2017, 10:28:50 AM
Well I hope you placed your bet.
I only watched the main card fights and it was a weird one but I think all the decisions were correct.

Jacare is a beast! He's only a fight or two away from the belt.

Anderson deserved to win. Brunson didn't have anything for him except those uppercut flurries in the clinch.

Germaine beat Holly. For every three air punches Holly attempted, De Randamie sat down and smacker her with ahard right. She also had much more effective knees in the clinch. Holly tried several times to take her down (even when you could hear her corner screaming for her to step back and box with her opponent) but couldn't. The first "foul" was on the buzzer and the second was seconds after a head kick that rocked her.
I think the ref is more to blame. He was about as active as a sloth.

It's the next fight that counts, both for Holly and Germaine. Holly needs a win or else she'll slip down the leader board. Germaine is set to face Cyborg - even though she was quick to claim a hand injury?? Perhaps bring Megan Anderson in to spice things up?

Even though I'm a fan, I've got to say the UFC is really trying to appeal to the masses with their recent match making.

Feed Connor to Khabib and be done with it.

Post by: Blue Fescue on February 14, 2017, 10:40:54 AM
I think Holly said she is going back to 135.

The lack of respect for boxing amongst mma fans for boxing is incredible. Connor has absolutely no chance to win this fight. He's probably the best 145 pounder in the UFC but he'll never make that weight again.  I doubt he fights a real contender at 155 again. There are a couple 155ers that would probably beat him and let's be honest he lost both the daiz fights. He should retire after this fight. His fans will be able to say he was the best lightweight ever even though he only fought once. That being said he's an incredible mma fighter at the right weight.

Its kind of sad in a way. Ive tried to keep this thread alive many times. And theres been no shortage of interesting things happening in UFC. New owner shit storm. Cody dropping out and the TJ vs DJ shit storm showing Danas mafia style negotiating. Joanna and Stipe defending their belts. Max defeating Jose Aldo.

And the thing that bumps this thread is conor vs floyd...


Quote
Connor has absolutely no chance to win this fight

Really ? absolutely no chance ? not even 1% ? There is no way in hell he can get a lucky shot in ? or Floyd makes a costly mistake ? or that its a fixed fight ? theres not even a 0.00000001% chance he can win ? lol

Quote
He's probably the best 145 pounder in the UFC but he'll never make that weight again.

So if the UFC offerd Conor 500 Milion USD to make 145 ? are you telling me he cant do it ? cause hes made weight every time. He has Never missed weight at 145. So what makes you so sure he cant make it now ?


So many weird things about this fight. Nevada sanctioned a boxing fight between the best boxer in the world with a 50/0 record vs a guy who hasnt done a single pro or am boxing fight...

Unless Conor gets knocked out I guess its a win for MMA. If Conor wins its a win for the MMA. If Floyd wins on points I guess its not really a win for boxing, But more a win for MMA

But Boxing fans will have a field day with this shit. If Conor looses there will be no end to all the shit MMA fans will get. How much superior boxing is to MMA. And when you bring up that Conor left MMA to go to boxing and left behind grappling, kicking, knees, elbows and everything ells. But it wont matter. They will still say boxing is superior cause floyd won...

All the arguments about which sport is better are fucking stupid. They are both cool but both different in so many ways. I boxed in the amateurs and I'm sure after a mama fighter got past my initial five punches and got ahold of me I'd be done. If he can't kick or grab I'll probably have the advantage because in boxing footwork and punching are all I practice and it's different footwork,  punching,  and distance technique  than mama because you don't have to worry about kicks, grabs, elbows etc. in the end though I'd rather know mma for a street fight, you're better off knowing all that shit and not just punching. I love boxing and rarely watch mma but holy fuck do I hate Floyd. He's been entertaining in about two fights in his entire career I cannot stand his ultra defensive style. I see him winning though he's done this all his life and Conor probably doesn't have the footwork, speed or technique to catch Floyd and actually hurt him. Anything can happen and it could turn out to be a good fight but I'm saving my money for canelo vs ggg two weeks later.

I mean if Manny couldn't even tag Floyd, the Connor for sure won't. Manny doesn't have knock out power but dude is quick as shit. That fight was the shittiest thing I have ever seen. I assume Connor's will be the same but with some mocking here and there.

I can't wait for the GGG and Canelo fight too. I have my money on Canelo.

I'm no Floyd fan either, but don't underestimate his knockout power.  Everybody thinks he's just gonna run and duck punches all night but he's knocked quite a few tough guys out over the years.  He's a masterful fighter in just about every aspect.

However, it's been somewhat proven that the way to beat Floyd is to brawl with him, not try and be out-quick and box him.  Jose Luis Castillo proved this in his first fight with him (watch that fight, Floyd lost and most people think so... except the judges).  So if McGregor is gonna do anything at all it's going to have to be that... just try and pin him in a corner and make a street fight of it. 

Ain't gonna happen though.  I bet he gets knocked out.

I actually have never seen the Conelo vs Mayweather fight but how did he lose there?

I think the street fight mentality could work but Mayweather would never allow it. Since he is a defensive fighter, he will just cover or play defense and then move out of the corner. Connor will just have to find a tactic where he can land punches but also not get hit. I would imagine fighting Floyd is very frustrating.

I was thinking about this, I feel that if Mayweather spends the fight hugging McGregor might slip and throw a kick. Dude definitely knows it's not the same playing field and after losing his sparring partner and becoming a father he might retire

Also....I am wondering if fatigue is going to hurt Connor as well. I know he's the younger guy but he hasn't been going long rounds like Mayweather has. I know Floyd is 40 but dude has the energy of a young kid. Connor's punching power won't be there after a couple of rounds.

So if the UFC offerd Conor 500 Milion USD to make 145 ? are you telling me he cant do it ? cause hes made weight every time. He has Never missed weight at 145. So what makes you so sure he cant make it now ?


So many weird things about this fight. Nevada sanctioned a boxing fight between the best boxer in the world with a 50/0 record vs a guy who hasnt done a single pro or am boxing fight...

Unless Conor gets knocked out I guess its a win for MMA. If Conor wins its a win for the MMA. If Floyd wins on points I guess its not really a win for boxing, But more a win for MMA

But Boxing fans will have a field day with this shit. If Conor looses there will be no end to all the shit MMA fans will get. How much superior boxing is to MMA. And when you bring up that Conor left MMA to go to boxing and left behind grappling, kicking, knees, elbows and everything ells. But it wont matter. They will still say boxing is superior cause floyd won...

I hope Conor goes in hand head kicks him, gives him a 1,2 and then takes him down and chokes him out. Or atleast totaly destroys him the press conferences. Brings up the woman beating every 2 minutes and every other shitty thing about floyd


1% is about the chance he has. Not really a competitive fight. I'm saying he'll never go to 145 again because he has no incentive to go back down. He has a really hard time making the weight and he doesn't seem to have any interest in fighting anyone at that weight. I would guess that if he ever even fights in the UFC after this it will be super fights. He should take his money and run. Why put yourself through the damage for a much smaller payday.

You are right that some boxing fans will say that boxing is the superior fighting style but who cares. Most people have no idea what they're talking about when it comes to fighting. I did Muay Thai for 22 years and a few years of jujitsu and I'm only qusai informed on mma. Obviously an mma fight between them would be over way faster than this boxing match will be. I hope the fight goes a few rounds at least.

 Floyd is a complete piece of shit as a human so yet another reason this fight is a bummer.

But really it's just a sport so fuck it get paid.

It's going to be very strange when Buffer announces "At 50-0 the undefeated Floyd Money Mayweather!! And In the blue corner making his professional boxing debut, Conor McGregor!" This is how much boxing has suffered...

I guess the boxer who posted this stated that its actually 1 year old sparring footage (from when conor was preparing for the Diaz rematch). I'm sure he's at least slightly better now.

Some say this whole fiasco could hurt boxing more than help it, but I'm hoping it would have an inverse effect. Maybe Floyd's skill would remind others how gnarly and advanced boxing really is; given the mass impression that Conor is a beast with the hands, in his own right.

16 ounce is for sparring. 10 ounce gloves are used in almost all professional fights. But you are correct. It will take some power away.

He probably has improved in the last year. Especially if he gave up on all other training to focus on boxing but it's relative. He could take the next 5 years off and only box and still wouldn't have as much skill as Floyd. I think Connor was a boxer too before mma if I'm not mistaken. It's just that Floyd is so damn good at what he does. His ring generalship is off the charts.

Anybody watch Bellator NYC this past weekend? It was a pretty awesome event for the most part. I'm new to a lot of these fighter's, but it was pretty enjoyable. I've read that most fighters on their roster are pretty content with Bellator as opposed to the UFC, where fighters are constantly complaining about pay/opportunity etc. Good competition for the ufc.

Bellator 180: Fight Highlights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paXu70ngspI#)
Bellator NYC: Fight Highlights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nfytb_a6_8#)

Some notable parts:

-Standout Pro-boxer Heather Hardy made her mma debut and won. Was pretty pysched for her; she's a sweetheart. Not sure how many transitional boxer's have pulled this off.
-Young gun/Conor mcgregor gym partner James gallagher killed it against someone literally half his age.
-New highly touted prospect Aaron Pico lost in an upset. A lot of people are saying it was a huge mistake for bellator to push him so soon.
-Prob the most controversial fight of the night, Michael chandler lost his lightweight belt to Brent Primus due to a medical stoppage. Chandler turned his ankle really bad and could only fight on one leg, but still nearly ko'd Primus.   
-Legend Fedor Emelianenko lost to matt mitrione in a rare, exciting double ko.
-The best mouthpiece in pro sports Chael Sonnen, beat wanderlei Silva pretty easily with good take down offense.

Bellator had its highlights.

Chinzo Machida is a lot older than Gallagher.  Plus not a grappler and said he hasn't been focusing on his MMA career

I think Pico asked for a seasoned opponent so that is kind of on him.

Fedor should probably retire but most likely won't

Has anyone been following the mayweather/mcgregor pressers? The Toronto one was pretty nuts, highly entertaining and very intense. I was jaw dropped and riled up at times, with the things that were being said. The amount of energy going on in this event is insane.

-1:33:00 mark for start of ceremony/if you wanna bypass most of the pundit talk (I think a lot of it's insightful though)
-1:43:00 mark for mcgregor's mic time.
-1:52:00 mark for mayweather's mic time

Mayweather vs. McGregor: Toronto Press Conference | Sat., Aug. 26 on SHOWTIME PPV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7ZcGjg03-E#)

I'll probably try to watch the fight somehow. Mcgregor has so much momentum through fanfare and trash talk on his side, while Floyd has the predictable advantage of skill. I'm siding with Floyd: can't help but to go with the unpopular bad-guy.

I have been watching. It's been the circus show that I predicted. I've been seeing other videos where Floyd confesses how he isn't the fighter he used to be in regards to his body. I do think Connor, although being younger, has terrible stamina and probably can't go the distance since I see it that way. If I had a million to bet, I am sure Floyd will win but there is that small percentage that Connor could knock him out.

Connor might win a round our two in the first three by constantly coming forward while Floyd figures out his timing but takes no real damage. Floyd will land pot shots here and there and will focus on the body for a couple rounds. Connor will start to get tired after 5/6 rounds and Floyd will take over. I want to say Floyd cruses to a decision but I think he can stop Connor around 8/9. Ref might wave it off because Connors getting tuned up.

Yeah, Conor fought pretty cheap in parts, but he actually did better than I think most people were expecting.

Especially, like grim was saying, during like the first half of the rounds.

Pretty fun fight though. I'm still glad McGregor lost though, he's such a cocky prick, and not even in a cool way.

Official prediction

Connor might win a round our two in the first three by constantly coming forward while Floyd figures out his timing but takes no real damage. Floyd will land pot shots here and there and will focus on the body for a couple rounds. Connor will start to get tired after 5/6 rounds and Floyd will take over. I want to say Floyd cruses to a decision but I think he can stop Connor around 8/9. Ref might wave it off because Connors getting tuned up.

Not too far off. The stoppage was 45 seconds later than I guessed. I was pretty surprised that Connor fought smart and didn't really go for the ko just lots of volume. Effectively shutting down a lot of Floyd offence early. I had four rounds for Connor.  It was smart even though there was just no way his cardio was going to hold up at that tempo. Floyd didn't look great but he was fighting in a totally different style than he's known for. It was a better fight than I was expecting.

Saw it at a front yard/lawn viewing party, and I was pretty entertained. I think both fighters put in a satisfactory performance: Conor was suprisingly better than most thought (he had a good jab too) & Floyd made a conscious effort to take risks with being the aggressor. I definitley have a new level of respect for both fighters. Kinda glad its over now, though, and that the world is back in order.  Too much hoopla.

That was a good night of fights.  the three belt fights were really good.  Joanna isn't looking as good since she started training at ATT.  more linear with less movement.

the bell saved dillashaw in the first.  I thought it was all over.  really the whole thing was kind of interesting in that the three champs talked a lot of trash and then all got beat.  they really seemed to force it and then couldnt back it up.

Post by: nsskater1993 on November 29, 2017, 05:46:39 AM
LOL @ the headlines I've been seeing about Dana's opinions on champs fighting. One article Dana basically says " Conor may never fight again, but that's okay because he's made a bunch of money" yet when it comes to GSP: "I'll be SUPER PISSED if GSP doesn't defend his title."

While I understand the thought process in both situations, these statements seem pretty contradictory. On one hand, you have a champ who's been holding up a division for an entire year and hasn't defended either of the belts he won. On the other hand, you have GSP who was a big ppv draw before the Conor era, defended his welterweight title multiple times, who JUST won the title and he's already being criticized for ducking his division and handpicking his opponents. Yes I get it, it's in GSP's contract yadayadayada, well it should be in Conor's contract too. It's this type of shit that has made me much less a fan of the UFC these days (although I still love me a good fight). Preferential treatment is bullshit. I get it, Conor's made you more money than ever. Why don't you get pissed when he doesn't defend? Maybe GSP would be more willing to fight if he didn't have a boss that criticized him any chance he gets.

218 was another great card.
Holloway was right when he said Aldo should be proud of what he's achieved and not feel like he needs to keep contending for the title. Times have changed.

Cowboy Oliviera vs Yancy Mdeiro was wild as was Gaethje Alvarez.

I swear I though Alistair Overeem died with that uppercut. Stipe Ngannou is going to be good.

I agree. Fuck man, you can't just wing a single right hook while you're backing straight up and getting blitzed by a coiled spring like Romero. He got caught by Branch doing the same exact thing.

It does seem like he kills himself to get down to 185, so maybe you're right - but if he thinks the guys at 185 hit hard I wonder how he'll handle the power of guys like Gus, Manuwa and Oezdemir.

I guess the argument is that if he isn't dehydrating so much his brain won't rattle around so much or whatever.  but at the same time you are upping the power as well so I can't imagine it will end up any better.  as long as he backs straight up with poor defence there will be problems.

I can remember 3 times he has been unconscious and they were all bad.  hopefully they start him slowly in 205

Luke seems to fancy himself a striker. Heís not. Heís big and his left high kick has got him some wins on the way up but heís most dominant when heís grappling. Heís got great cardio he needs to khabib his opponents. One arm chocked bisping, then tryís to trade and gets koíd. He needs to go back to the AKA style.

From what I understand, it's probably a response to Artem and Khabib getting into some beef yesterday. Either that or he just can't stand not being in the headlines for a day or so.

Looks like it's possible Chiesa won't be able to fight due to cuts he got from shards of broken glass hitting him. Rose almost got hit too.

Khabib confronting Artem was in response to one of those live chat things the fighters do, where Artem was saying Conor is a real champion and Khabib isn't because Conor never pulls out of fights. I'm fairly certain that was what pissed Khabib off.

I hear Chiesa is okay though and is cleared to fight, so that's good. Since he lost all those hours of weight cutting time in the hospital getting treated for the cuts, it's possible he can't make weight. And Artem is off the card.

223 will definitely go down in history as one of the wildest build ups.

Stoked for Rose. I have respect for Joanna but I can't believe she still sees herself as the Queen of her division and telling everyone else to bow down. Seriously? You just got beaten twice.

I think she planned to beat Rose the first time, maybe take one more fight and then retire to have kids. Now she seems a bit lost...

Stoked for Khabib. Dude changed opponent 5 times in a week and had to deal with an Irish megalomaniac. If ever this ends up being Conor Vs Khabib in Russia in September. Oh shit...

Stoked for Zabit and Bockniak. Zabit was totally in control and Bochniak went balls to the wall/cage.

That Irish prick is one the greatest of all time at thrash talking but I'm glad he got served by Khabib.. Kind of restores some faith in humanity by having honor and grace in the game. But I still like the way conor fights, do everything you can to win, legal or not because end of the day it's what is membered..

The match and all that was very entertaining even though I don't really like ultra violence..

i think that match it ultimately going to be the end of an era. i dont think connor can beat khabib and with him potentially losing to him twice on top of the diaz defeat its starting to feel a little rouseyish.

without connor being invincible his trash talking and antics are dumb. this is bad news for the ufc i think. when rouseys era ended at least they had connor to fall back on. who else do they have with cross over appeal right now?

Yeah and he better do it quick since they just announcd he's fighting Cormier in a month.

I might recommend training more than a half hour a day and chilling on the Popeye's. I wonder how guys like him and Roy Nelson would do if they had some degree of discipline. The talent and power is obviously there.

I think his back issue has something to do with him not training much if i remember correctly.  could be wrong though.  going to be tough for him against cormier.  unless he is fighting jones it doesn't seem like cormier makes mistakes.

Damn the co-main got scrapped? Cyril Gane is 1 to watch in that shit division. The Thomas Almeda fighting should be good, had an excellent KO run before being slept by Cody Garbrant.

Not followed MMA as closely since I came back to skateboarding since the cards are on Sunday morning (Asia time zone) and I'm out skating then. I still catch the main and co-main when I can while listening to Jack Slack or Heavy Hands podcast for the recap.

Max definitely looked like he lost a step, Poirier laid down a ferocious beating on him. Though I did think he won the rematch with Volk.

Iíve watched around half of those but Iíll check out the ones I have not.
I kinda want Justin to win tomorrow but I really donít think Khabib is going to lose.
Khabib is fighting for his dad who recently died but Justin is equally fighting for his parents as well.
Hope it goes 5 rounds.

Post by: rocklobster on October 23, 2020, 09:20:03 AM
How Khabib forces the wrestling exchanges will determine the outcome of the fight. In the past Gaethje has fought off takedowns and always scrambled up quickly, but he always looks incredibly winded each time he return to the feet (see Alverez and Poirier fights). He too has acknowledged that the wrestling aspect of MMA saps his gas tank, hence he avoids during his fights. If Khabib can continually chain wrestle Gaethje and draw him into deep waters, it's going to be a very shitty night for Gaethje.

That said, Khabib does his best takedowns when his opponent has his back along the cage, his wrestling is less potent in open space (see Round 3 of the McGregor fight). Gaethje will need to use his pivots to avoid getting driven to the cage when Khabib rushes in. Even better if he can keep the offensive initiative on Khabib and force him backwards, Khabib is not as strong a defensive wrestler when put on his back foot (again see Round 3 of the McGregor fight).

If you guys listen to podcasts check out Fights Gone By by Jack Slack and Heavy Hands, all hosts were former contributors on Bloody Elbow and Vice's Fightland to get a flavor of what to expect this weekend.

Khabib said heís willing to try 100 take downs so idk just how much Justin can hold him off.
When Khabib flight Conor, in that third round Khabib made the choice to stand up with him for the most part.
At some point during the fight they are talking shit to each other and donors says something like, youíre scared to standup with me, so Khabib said okay round three letís do it and Khabib lost that round.
I donít think thereís any way heís going to play that game with Justin, even for just 1 round.

Wow that ended quickly and decisively. Didn't watch it live but I've been off MMA for a few months ever since I started skating more. Khabib retiring is big and leaves with a high note with his record intact. Shame the Ferguson fight never happened that will go down in history as one of the biggest missed bouts in this era of MMA.

I ended up leaving work early and was able to watch the last 3 fights.
Robert showed that he deserves another chance against Izzy. Khabib fucking owned and I also felt like crying just imagining all the emotion he was feeling without his dad being alive now.
Iím glad he retired, Khabib is the best.
I donít think Khabib vs Tony needed to happen, itís just so highly unlikely that tony would have had the answer to beating khabib. Everyone thinks they can stay off the fence but they never do.
Justin was throwing some wild ass dynamite punches in the first round but Khabib is just too good.
I guess Iím slightly bummed that him vs GSP wonít  happen because I feel like gsp is the only one who could have the real potential to win, even with being out of the game for a few years.
Side note: the down side to me leaving work early is that I left because my wife is sick and might have covid.

He was winning the fight, won the first two rounds, was winning the third round until he got dropped during the last ten seconds. Then the next round Uriah put it down. Uriah has some great power but I donít think he will every be champ.

Bruce Buffer was showing him lots of love during his intro announcement.

I watched this 2nd fight with Weidman live on TV and the injury turned my stomach and ruined my day. He was savage and unreal in his prime, rearranging Rich Franklin's face and manhandling Forrest Griffin like a dad wrestles his son.

After seeing what happened to Tony in his last fight I really hope we don't see a repeat with Max. Shows just how tough FW and LW, former champs and possible GOAT candidates bested by younger fighters who on top of being great technically can make adjustments mid-fight; countering the counter.

Yep, Moreno v Figureido was amazing. That fight had everything. I watched Sandhagen v Moraes like 100 times last year though, such a beautiful performance.

Excited for Holloway v Kattar. It was hard to watch Holloway lose his title the 1st time and the  rematch was amazing but just too close to call. I do think he gets by Kattar though, decisively

I just saw the face off today on IG and it looks like Max is taller but it seems they are the same height. Katter has a longer reach too but I had no idea he was 32 and Max is 29.

He did get my attention too. I am not even sure if I should care but him making an example out of somebody is comical but also trying in what he can do.

I think he was threatening the person that is running the stream.  He said they know who one of them are, and will prosecute if they stream the fight for others to watch.  Not sure if it's a scare tactic or the truth.

Good for you! What betting site did you use? I was close to putting some money down at one point, then had trouble because the betting site was outside the US with my bank transfer. Then read the fine print and learned that you need to put $2000 of your own money in before they let you take out any of your winnings.

Also insane that they had Chandler as the underdog against Hooker.

One of the best UFC nights since UFC 251 for sure, was not prepared to see Conor go down like that.

I'm not big on sports betting. I used the site most the fighters promote on IG and they match your first bet. I put down 350 on 4 fights in ufc 251 and won. So that's the money I used on 257. At least now I can withdraw my money. That was pretty shitty at the time when I found out I couldnt withdraw my winnings at the time, but now it's fine. I wouldnt use the codes again however, fuck that shit.

Hopefully Dana got some kind of holy water/exorcism/blessing type deal to get rid of the curse that has befallen the last few fights as penance for his many crimes.

Other than that, I'm excited for these fights

I donít think JM will beat KU. People say JM lost because he only had a week notice but other people have reported that he was already training really hard during that time but of course he will make adjustments from their first fight but I think KU takes it.

Usman is an outstanding athlete and defended his belt against a couple of heavy hitters already. He's the favorite no doubt. Then again, JM had to cut all this weight (20lb) on short notice, fly around the globe, fight in the middle of the day on a strange time zone with no crowd last time.

Fired up to see what happens this time.

I wouldn't count Masvidal out so easily. Last time he took the fight on 6 days notice and cut 20 pounds... and still won the first round and went all the way to round 5 against the champ to decision.

Now he's had a full camp and time to prep. It's going to be a gnarly fight. Sooo hyped for tomorrow!!!!

This is one of those cards where I like all the fighters and just don't mind any of them winning.

If I was betting money, I would go:

Usman > Jorge
Zhang > Rose
Valentina > Jessica

If you are asking who I want to win:

Jorge > Usman
Zhang > Rose
Jessica > Valentina


Should be a good one tomorrow!

Last night was nuts, from the early prelims to the main card. 

Sucks for Jimmy Crute and Weidman, hope they heal up fast. Canít help but feel this is it for Weidman, heís taken a ton of big damage lately, heís not getting any younger and I highly doubt heís going to get any better. Also, throwing a lazy low kick against a seasoned striker like Uriah Hall was a terrible idea.

Usman keeps getting better and better; teaming up with Trevor Whittman to work on his striking was the best decision possible. I donít see any current 170erís beating him, dudeís straight-up scary now. If he beats Colby itíll probably be Leon Edwards or Burns again, and I donít see either guy beating him.

Fun night.

Agreed on Weidman, dude has been knocked out a lot recently and the leg injury was horrific, the bone was poking through the skin. He posted on IG today said he was doing fine, but probably on shitloads of morphine.

Wanted the Usman fight to go on a little longer, the exchanges at the end of round 1 were getting interesting. Rose getting the head kick KO was beautiful. Also Rogan needs to stop interviewing fighters after they get knocked out.

This was a special night for the UFC! You could tell that everyone was psyched to be there, from fighters to refs to commentators.

I was most stoked for Rose and hoped she would win back the title. The head kick was so amazing, let's not forget that Zhang was undefeated for 21 fights in a row!

Valentina dominated, there was one point when Andrade tried to take her down and she just wouldn't budge. It went downhill fast from there.

And Usman, wow! Wanted to see Masvidal do some damage but can't dislike Usman. Like folks on here said, he keeps getting better and better. He deals with all the hate and is a class act, does a lot of outreach. Great champion and role model. He can hold down this division Khabib style for a long time, don't see anyone giving him any trouble for now. (And hope they don't have him do a Covington rematch, please).

Also, who do you have for Chandler vs. Oliveira at UFC 262?

I hope Chandler doesn't win. He just got in the UFC and he's fighting for the title which is so odd. But I will say Chandler is the better name to sell for either Connor or Porier to fight him next. Oliveira is a great fighter but most casual fans won't care if he wins.

Sucks how the Dillashaw vs Sandhagen fight is cancelled. Was looking forward to that one.

This was a special night for the UFC! You could tell that everyone was psyched to be there, from fighters to refs to commentators.

I was most stoked for Rose and hoped she would win back the title. The head kick was so amazing, let's not forget that Zhang was undefeated for 21 fights in a row!

Valentina dominated, there was one point when Andrade tried to take her down and she just wouldn't budge. It went downhill fast from there.

And Usman, wow! Wanted to see Masvidal do some damage but can't dislike Usman. Like folks on here said, he keeps getting better and better. He deals with all the hate and is a class act, does a lot of outreach. Great champion and role model. He can hold down this division Khabib style for a long time, don't see anyone giving him any trouble for now. (And hope they don't have him do a Covington rematch, please).

Also, who do you have for Chandler vs. Oliveira at UFC 262?
[close]

I hope Chandler doesn't win. He just got in the UFC and he's fighting for the title which is so odd. But I will say Chandler is the better name to sell for either Connor or Porier to fight him next. Oliveira is a great fighter but most casual fans won't care if he wins.

Sucks how the Dillashaw vs Sandhagen fight is cancelled. Was looking forward to that one.

Super bummed on dilly v sandy. Was really looking forward to that

The Dillashaw that destory Renan Barao to win the belt looked unstoppable, the future of the MMA type of fighter. That was in May 2014, 7 years ago.

Sandhagen has been looking good too, interested to see how a Dillashaw handles a lanky fighter.

I was just thinking how Chris Weidman's careers have been defined by failed kicks.
1) Broke Anderson Silva's leg in the rematch
2) Missed a spinning wheel kick on Luke Rockhold that got him taken down and pounded, lost the belt
3) Broke his leg in his most recent fight with Hall

I thought JM was doing pretty well in round 1, he landed an elbow or two that sent Usman backwards in retreat but only for a few seconds. Man that knock out was wild.
People asked Usman why he threw the extra punches (of course to set up the joke where he can say super necessary) but I didnít think those last punches were ďextraĒ JM was still conscious and those last two punches when he was on the ground are what fully knocked him out.

Fucking Rose! Weli said it was an early stop but she looked KOd for like 2 seconds once rose to threw those final shots while Weli was on the ground.

I went back and watched Valentina VS Amanda 2.
Valentina was so impressive in that fight. Going into round 5 it def felt like it was 2-2. In the 5th round Amanda took Valentina down but valentinas defense while on the ground in that 5th round was amazing and Valentina landed some good strikes from her back in round 5. I think Valentina could have won round 5 based on how great her defense was. 1 judge even scored the fight fir Valentina.
 It is an awesome fight (not like Joanna and Weli where it was bang for bang, it was pretty tech).
If yíall havenít seen that fight, or havenít watched it in a long time, check it out.
Also in that fight Valentina weighed in at 133 while Amanda was 135, so it seems like Valentina didnít really cut any weight so she must have gone into that fight at least 15 pounds lighter than Amanda. 

I donít think Valentina and Amanda need to fight again. Amanda won the first 2 fights. Valentina is clearly more all around skilled but that weight difference really seems to make a difference.

That whole UFC card was awesome, I started watching at the first early prelim fight. I did miss 1 fight at the end of the prelims to take a nap but wow what a card!

Valentina vs Nunes 3 is just to do it cause the rest of the fighters in the division aren't at their level. Now that Valentina made light work of Andrade, do we really want her to fight Katlyn Chookagian? Even Nunes fighting Pena is who is ranked 6 just shows there is no one to fight of worth.

I think do bronx will be an interesting matchup for him. He's taken great strides in his striking and is deadly on the ground. I think beneil is going to smoke ferg honestly. He's become very hittable after a long career of being elusive and has taken a LOT of damage in his last couple fights

The kind of damage he took in the Gaethje fight is the kind of damage that stays with you. Also, not tapping to that heel hook was dumb, his knee is toast for sure.

Plus dude is on the wrong side of 37 in the most competitive division, hate to say it as a fan, but his time is over. Heís good at being crazy, tough and catching people with subs, but his grappling fundamentals are piss-poor, there was no way he was out-grappling Dariush, a 3rd degree Romulo Barral black belt. Not saying it was a fun or a good fight, it was a grapplefuck of the highest order.

Imagine what Khabib would have done to him.

I couple nights ago I watched a few rob font fights and felt like he had more tools in his bag than Cody does.
Cody did okay with some take downs but even in that first round, I thought Rob won it even tho Cody got those take downs. 2/3 judges gave all rounds to Rob, I think Rob should fight for the title next.
I think Cody is passed the point of being able to be champ again now.
Carla owned Yan.
And that heavy weight fight before Carla-Yan, was good. So much blood, it was a fun to watch fight.

Font needs to work on his takedown defence if he wants to fight for the title. Imagine what Aljo Sterling would do to him. Unlike Cody, Aljo has good submissions once he gets someone down, and he has great ground control. I also think Petr Yan would take Font down fairly easy. The boxing battle would be fun between Font and Yan though.

Man Nate could have finished Leon if he had my just stopped and pointed at him when he rocked him there in the last 30 seconds, he should have fully swarmed Leon but he didnít.

Leon looked good but that fight didnít put much faith in me that he could beat Usman.

I donít see how Leon can beat Usman in any way. On top of that, dude seems like a fairly small welterweight and Usman would just muscle him no problem. Fun fight though, I went nuts when Nate landed that 1-2. Not taking anything from Leon though, dudeís striking is very technically sound. Him and Wonderboy could be fun, but I think heíd get picked apart.

Marvinís a delusional idiot if he think he won that. Rafael Cordeiro was screaming at him in-between every single round how heís losing, I thought Marvin would start arguing with him. Glad he lost.

Moreno, what can I say ? I litterally got off the couch and start clapping when he won. So happy for him.

Laughed way too hard at this.

Pretty funny.

I watched the last fight night live. I am pretty shure gane will get knocked out by Lewis. Gane doesnĎt have real Knock-out power and while he has great defense it seems he does get hit by a good striker.

Good on Nganou for net taking that fight in Houston.

It is such a shame they donĎt pay fighters better money. It always looks so weird when they have current and former champions working events. It might be the only major sport where champions have to work a day job so they will be able to properly support themselves after their career is over. And it is way worse for fighters who donĎt get Main events. They basically put their health on the line for just enough money to sustain their career.

Insanely good looking with zero idea what to do with his hands; not from a striking perspective but I'm thinking of a clip with him in the cage celebrating DC's win and he's hands are unnaturally placed. He's been knocked out badly in all of his last 3 losses, I've taken to call him Luke Outcold; tragic considering there was a point he was considered the future of the middleweight division.

The man loves fighting with his hands at his side and getting hit with left hooks


Also unrelated, but what a fucking clown show the ufc as an org is. They're going to give the winner of Lewis v gane an interim belt. What a mickey mouse organization

Those photos are pretty rad. Had no idea Luke skates as well. Too bad he isn't back to where he was cause no coach in their right mind would let him skate and possibly hurt himself but since he's been on a losing streak, who cares I guess.

Here is a clip of him.

The color of his shorts matched his skin tone perfectly, thought he was skating naked.

It's a shame he didn't have a longer run as champion and his decline was so steep. His run after the Vitor Belfort KO was fun, murdering dudes with his left kick and BJJ.

I did not dig his whole vibe. He acted super arrogant and treated dangerous competition as beneath him. As a result he got smoked by Bisping, Yoel and Jan. The stuff he said about Jan after moving to lhw, about how "i don't lose to people like Jan" made him getting absolutely cracked that much more satisfying

Not denying that, after seeing him choke out Bisping in their first fight, no one gave Bisping a chance to win especially coming off a movie shoot, 10 days notice and no training camp. But Left Hook Larry delivered.

Lookin' for dusty to take it home, but if Mac gets it I won't be mad. Even though they both got finished by Habib, I think dustin (out of all of Habib's last handful of challengers) had him in the most trouble with that guillotine and maybe a punch if I remember right.

I luv Leon Edwards, I hope he gets the title shot. It felt bogus that Nate could get dominated the whole time then have it all reversed with one good punch. I like Nate, but man he did not look comfortable and was getting pieced up easy. It'd be a shame if they just gave the shot to the winner of Burns/Wonderboy. It feels more arbitrary to say that Leon needs to over perform and jump through hoops to get the shot, when he rightfully deserves it by now.

The Pre-lims look great as well!

Agreed on dusty. I'm kind of over the Conrad mcgillicuddy saga. He got smoked by khabib then fucked off for a couple years and now he's trying to come back like nothing happened. Dustin deserved the title shot after their second fight and i hope he bops Conor again so he and do bronx can face off.

WW is all fucked up and Dana giving all this preference to Colby's clown ass is a joke. Nothing would give me more joy than Kamaru clapping Colby again and seeing Dana's red ass up there malding.

The ufc is a goof org run by the king goof himself

Okay so UFC 264 is coming up... McGregor vs Poirier Round 3. What are your top fights?

Looking forward to seeing Gilbert Burns and Sean O'Malley for sure.

And I started watching the Return of the Ultimate Fighter and been enjoying it a lot more than I thought. Brian Ortega positively surprised me, can't wait for him to actually fight Alexander Volkanovski for the title in Fall. And they're kind of getting into it with their fighter teams as proxies and some shit talking. Anyone else watching?

@DaleSr        fa'sho. Mayor of Goof-a-lopolis! Can't wait to see the day fighters take a stab at organizing and present a united front. It'd be a lot of sacrifice, but amazing to see.
Not really too into Colby as an entertaining figure as much. It was kinda fun to hear him say stuff pre-Biden, but he seems to cross lines now: taking selfies with a female fighter then telling the whole world he banged her, taking pics with other fighter's families, calling BLM terrorists, etc. The thing about the pro-wrestling schtick ó everyone is in on it. When you apply it outside of that framework where you're the only one in on it, there is real world consequences like bridge burning and screwing with peoples personal lives in general. For me that's not that cool to see. 

@NorthShore        Yeah, I've been watching tuf. I enjoy it, I'd like to see more entertaining bits but only so much you can fit it less than an hour. just saw the most recent episode with the Hadoukan cat and the fight was fire! This clip interestingly gives more detail that the show won't seem to cover:

@franquietits totally agreed on Colby, would love to see him fight Masvidal though. That seems to be in the cards for both of them.

And yes TUF was fire last night! The fight was hard to watch but Ricky definitely landed the most shots, Will be interesting to see him in the semis, he's such a wild card. But his personality and honesty really won me over.

Thanks for the YouTube link!

Agree on Colby.  He is saying shit that has real consequences when he encounters people.  He's so lame that when someone confronts him and it gets physical, he calls the cops and cowers behind people.  Normally I would say "settle it in the cage", but he is insulting people in different weight classes that can never get their chance to punch him in the cage.  Colby is a good fighter.  At this point I think he could ditch the character and gain even more fans. 

As for Dustin vs Conor.  Dustin just seems like such a beast, and he's been in some serious wars.  He's durable, and skilled.  I always forget that Conor is still fairly young because of all his success.  I think he is going to come in firing to try and knock Dustin out quick.  I'm leaning toward Dustin, but it's going to be a hell of a fight.

I hope wonder boy and Ryan Hall win their fights.
Iíd be happy with either Conor or Dustin winning but for a while Iíve been thinking that if Conor loses, he might retire from mma. And I think the UFC is better off with Conor in it than with him not in it.
So I would like to see Conor win because I donít want to see him retire.

I think Charles Olivera has a good chance at beating both Conor and Dustin. But both have a good chance at beating him, I just personally see CO winning.

The last month or two Iíve been thinking that I wasnít going to buy this event because there werenít that many other fights that I want to see, but now I do wanna see wonder boy vs burns, Ryan Hall, and sugar Shawn. So I do plan to buy it. Crack streams hasnít been working for the last 3 events.

Iíve only bought 2 UFC PPVs so fat but luckily that all have landed the day after my pay day. I get paid every two weeks and if these 3 events had been a week earlier or later, I wouldnít have been down to pay for them because Iím usually pretty low on money a week after my paycheck haha.

Dustin looked good in that first round, Conor looked alright. Dustin def won round 1.

I thought Conor looked a little nervous in the locker room and when he came out, like he was thinking fuuuuuck I HAVE to win I have to win I have to win.
Bummer that Gilbert mostly held wonder boy on the ground. That fight was decent. It was wild when in the second round they were just face punching on the ground.

yeah i had had a few and kept hearing people talk shit on his career all night after the loss so i was being sour ha. i agree. his antics used to be entertaining but it did become distasteful with the khabib stuff and all the porier shit talk was fuckin weak like he said himself. also like he said, it seemed like conor was nervous and was trying to be old conor with mind games and shit talk and it just didnít work or feel the same. the peahead shit, some of the nate diaz shit talk, that stuff was entertaining, this new shit about porierís wife or khabibís religion is just trashy shit that applies to white trash people which there are a lot of white trash ufc fans so it does apply. i just mean his career was very impressive for a long time and it sucks that his mouth and his recent losses are seeming to tarnish his accomplishments but, thatís life honestly. i really am just bitter that there wasnít a real fight. even if porier knocked him out in round 2 again, at least it would be a legit win and it would be a fair way of saying ďokay this guy is the better fighterĒ at least as of right now. just a bummer of a loss.

Conor posted a video when he got out of surgery which seems like he's wanting to recover and fight again.  Dustin also said that he would fight him again in the future because of the disrespectful shit Conor was saying.  Dustin knows that he will make a ton of cash fighting someone that he's confident he can keep beating.  I know Diaz is probably foaming at the mouth right now to get a fight with Conor.

Connor vs Nate 3 is still a money fight for both of them. I think considering both have been losing, it'd be a perfect fight to the end of their careers.
[close]

You just saw the end to Connor's career.
[close]
Conor posted a video when he got out of surgery which seems like he's wanting to recover and fight again.  Dustin also said that he would fight him again in the future because of the disrespectful shit Conor was saying.  Dustin knows that he will make a ton of cash fighting someone that he's confident he can keep beating.  I know Diaz is probably foaming at the mouth right now to get a fight with Conor.

 
All accurate. Definitely not the end of Conor's career. Be surprised if he ever wins again (against a legit challenger) nevertheless still a polarizing figure who people want to watch. Love Nate Diaz 
 
First time watching the fight legitimately. All the other times, watched bootlegs or just highlights afterwords. Definitely worth the money, gonna buy future fights for sure. Rooting for Sean O'Malley however after seeing Kris Moutinho take literally almost 200 punches to the head , wanted the upset. So much respect for Moutinho. Never heard of him before and wow last minute fill in. 
 
Conor fight surpassed expectations. 2 opportunities for Dustin to end it however he probably wanted to do another round to keep the show interesting. Post fight interview really highlighted how much of a respectable guy DP is & how whack Conor is now. So funny Conor wouldn't stop talking shit. Dustin says, "Shut your bitch ass up" then turns his head back like nothing  happened to finish talking to Rogan.

If Dustin takes the belt and then Conor gets KO'd again, fuck that would be hilarious.

-wow, that ending was crazy. Unbelievable how conor was able to relentlessy beat the dream while on the floor like that. I don't think that its that he is a poorer fighter nowadays, I suspect just moving up a division where the fighters are a bit more durable and powerful than the 145er's has caused him some problems. This fight showed how much he seems to be reliant on his incendiary persona, needing to believe in his power and dehumanize his opponent. It almost felt like he was playing a parody of his former self the whole time. If not hurt, it seemed like Conor was still going to give it his all, yet Dustin had alot of the momentum and seemed like he could pull through again. I don't know how well a fighter can come back from something like that. Here's a great video of someone's take (first half = injury, 2nd half @3:12 = Conor's career trajectory):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uRFDxWqi6g
an outstanding mma channel in general.


-Some people say Moutino getting beat down kinda outshines Sean, because of his durability. Sean seems poised to take Mcgregors spot as a popular athlete to an extent.

-Irene aldana was great. Not so so common to see females getting dropped by punches as often as men it seems. It was frustrating seeing her lose against Holly the way she did in her last fight.

-Gilbert did what he had to do vs a dangerous Thompson. Not a entertaining, flashy performance, but still impressive to control him the way he did. Still can't believe Leon, although he fought usman years ago, is getting overlooked for a title shot. It sounds like they want to match him up with either Masvidal or Gilbert.

-Hardy took a stiff punch walking into Tai's hook. He's fun, but the shooey thing feels kinda old after awhile. I seen some of Tai's losses, and it seemed that he had a lot of ground to cover in his ground game still.

You guys consider Connor getting back into the ring to become a punching bag for exhibition fights a "career"? He's 32 with 1 win in the last 4-5 years before he even broke his foot off.

Well itís his fighting career until he retires. I believe he should retire personally. He had the perfect storm when he came into the UFC; the talk, and the fights with the right opponents. At this point his mind games donít work anymore and he has stooped to low level insults. His fighting hasnít evolved at the same level as his opponents.  He has his family, his health, and his wealth.

If he still wants to a paycheck he can definitely make a comeback with 1-2 years off to recovery, build his career back up. His fan base is dedicated enough to buy anything he is remotely related to. Give him a good stylistic matchup on return (someone who can't deal with forward pressure, charges in face first, orthodox striker), let him clock that win and milk the comeback storyline for all the PPV dollars. He definitely has a generous contract with the UFC, he could take easy fights and still make bank.

Gaethje yes, he would have murdered the version of Mcgregor who turned up for the last 2 Poirier fights.

Ferg no, his last fight was a tough watch as a long time fan.

Oh trust me, i really don't want ferg to keep fighting, but he seems like he might be on some wild Diego Sanchez shit and fight until his arm falls off. If he wants it, he and Conor would probably be a good matchup, i think his timing could fuck with Conor

If he doesn't retire, I'd like to see Conor vs RDA.  The fight we never got to see.   Or Conor vs Hooker would be a good stylistic matchup.  I think the RDA fight has more of a backstory and would sell better PPV.

I had a similar ankle break to Conor and it set me back about 6 months, but a full year until I fully healed.  I did my own physio though.  He could probably heal up quicker with his resources.

Chandler had been saying he thinks he could beat Khabib, he should fight Islam and if he wins, he can at least prove he has an answer for Sambo style.
Khabib is def a harder fight that Islam but I think if he could beat Islam, that would be a big step.
Iíd want to see that more than Chandler vs. Justin.

Both are good interesting options, I'm curious to see him continue to fight top competition. He's only fought hooker and do bronx, Islam would get to make a huge leap if he wins, and Chandler gets to try and angle for khabib (who won't retire but it's a good gimmick for Chandler).
Chandler v Gaethje is guaranteed violence and I'm excited to just see Gaethje back in the ring again.

TJ vs Cory was kind of a hard fight to score.
I thought Cory was gonna win the decision.
Iím gonna rewatch the fight today after work and keep track of my scoring.
Iím remembering TJ round 1, Cory round two, tj round 3, 4 was really close and could have gone either way (if Iím remembering correctly) and I thought Cory won round 5.
Cory looked great, TJ looked pretty good.

Even tho TJ didnít do much when he would have Corys back, Iím sure the judges count that as control time and he did have a couple little take downs.
I was telling when Cory had that reverse triangle in round 1, I was like, one yes finish it like this!!!

It was close, looks like TJ got pieced up in R5. The early knees and elbow cut TJ open like a melon.

I'm so sick of his shit. Talking shit after you got completely ragdolled and crushed by khabib is already lame, but continuing to take these shots after he got RINSED by dusty the second time and then snapping your leg in the third is just pathetic. Dusty 4 is going to be very satisfying when he tunes his shit like a piano

I recently stumbled across a podcast, sort of conspiracy type one, where they looked into connorís past and recent history. Some of the shit they were saying is insane. Multiple ongoing rape allegations agents him as recent as summer 2020. Other shit I canít remember. Also canít remember the podcast name. Iíll have a look through my phone.

Anyone watch Sean Vs Uriah last night?
As soon as the fight started I was thinking Uriah did not look well. By the end of the first round I felt like he looked like he could pass out at any moment.
I was rooting for Uriah but good performance by Sean.
The whole fight Uriah just looked like he didnít want to be there. Bummer to have to fight and then lose on your birthday.

He really seemed off last night. I know heís struggled a lot with depression and self-confidence issues in the past, which often lead to him not being able to pull the trigger. I hope that wasnít the case.

Itís a bummer because heís a very high level striker and one of the harder hitting guys at MW and was also on a four fight winning streak. Being almost 37, he doesnít have a lot of time left at the highest level,  I hope the UFC gives him some fun fights so he can end his career with some wins.

Maybe, but this didnít really improve his chances of that happening. I think heíll stay in Bellator.

Iíd much rather see McKee in the UFC to be honest.

Khabibís boys were on point last night. Zabitís brother and Usman Nurmagomedov are very exciting prospects.

Bellator had a very good card last night.

Words I never thought I would see typed.

I liked when they tried to do kickboxing events with Glory in 2015 (damn 6 years ago!). Glory never got enough eyes on it for the talented roster they had. Which they had kept it going but kickboxing has such little interest in the USA outside the hardcore fan base.
