    Obviously women’s MMA doesn’t have the depth or history, but no doubt at all that she is the best ever thus far.

    I badly wanted Gus to win like most people... but there was nothing bad about that stoppage.

    And as for the replay... they only highlight the important moments... that moment was something that happens in nearly every fight when someone gets into that position.

    It was nothing... the finish occurred almost in side controll... if they were gonna pull Jones up for that they would be stopping every second fight for it...

    Khabib does it all the time...

    Boxing has faded in recent times. But Dana White....ffs. The shit he let’s go for his bros to fight is beyond me.

    The bloke is incredible athlete and has truely amazing fight iq. He’s right up there with prime Fedor as the greatest ever.

    But he’s a narcissistic, arrogant piece of shit who refuses to take any real responsibility for any of his wrong doing.

    Great fighter - horrible human being.

    The guy may be the greatest fighter in the history of the sport, he may hold the belt for a very long time, but IMO is so far short of being a “champion” on so many levels.

    Got disqualified in Round 2 for kneeing the blokes head off his shoulders while he was downed.

    Safe to say the gamble didnt pay off, unless the UFC subscribe to the theory that any publicity is good publicity (which they obviously do), in which case they have potentially struck oil

    Rob last fought in June. Sucks what happend today but stripping him would be crazy, espeically as he looks like he won't be off for to long.

    From the press conference Dana still loves Cody, he isn’t scared to go hell for leather and make an exciting fight. Kind of de-rails and title run any time soon though.

    Did not predict Usman dominating Woodley like that but hats off too him. He’ll get Colby now and should win that.

    Sounds like they want to do Lawler and Askren again even though Askren doesn’t really want it. Harsh stoppage for Lawler but I can see why Herb stopped it.

    I actually thought Garbrandt was going to be the new dominant fighter in the entire company before he lost to Dillashaw but jeez he has dropped the ball since.

    Almost Rousey like.. I think he needs a soft kill to get his confidence back.

    First NZ UFC Champion... probably one of the best title fights I’ve ever seen...

    Now for Stylebender vs Bobby Knuckles... that fight is gonna be sooooo massive... :joy::joy:

    They should do it in a stadium... SFS has been knocked over... maybe Marvel Stadium or Suncorp... I’d love to see it at Eden Park... but I doubt they’d get consent.

    He hammered Izzy for fighting a shorter, stumpy wrestler....someone pointed out he did the same fighting DC and Jones replied saying DC was the HW champ and one of the best to ever o it. Funny though, DC was not the HW champ when Jones fought him. The guy is a peice of shit.

    Jones could beat most guys at heavy weight but wants to call out the little guy, and I'm not at all suprised.
