We saw Bisping tear GSP up with the elbows from guard and GSP was getting noticeably tired by the 3rd...

I think he'd have a way easier time passing Tony's guard though.

There are 9 UFC events in November and December including 5 events between UFC 230 and 231. I'm not holding out hope for a great card in Toronto.

The Denver card is going to be good but China, Argentina, Australia and TUF finale probably won't get shit.

Yup. You should be able to keep your information private even if it's for seemingly hyperbolic reasons like #5 and #6. Right to Privacy is part of the UN Declatation of Human Rights.

If anyone sees any MMA journalist combat this ask them to post their salary to help other journalists negotiate.

You'd think he'd try to take a couple months just to get his general fitness back and get back into the groove of things. UFC 229 is only 6 weeks away.

I'd bet Tybura

Romero. More technical.

Conor. Khabib is underestimating him

Wiedman. Better boxing and has formula to beat him

Till. Woodley keeps back to fence where till is most comfortable. 48 47 dec

Smith. I think the reach and height advantage will play a big part in the fight

see more

Smith hates using his reach for any extended period of time. He always ends up lunging in head first and swinging for the fences.

Weekly Reminder that Gerald Meerschaert is awesome. 28-9 and never been to a decision. Talk about living by the sword. He’s always going to be one of my favorites

Edit: My bad, Meerschaert has been to a decision 3 times in 37 fights. Still a crazy finish/being finished rate

According to wikipedia he's been to decision 3 times.

Has Conor ever said anything about Gallagher? I’ve never heard or seen him acknowledge his little imitator

He needs to catch Deontay in the sauna and mentally defeat him like he did with Klitschko.

I think Benson tackled him off the stage on purpose.

I've listened to a LOT of Peterson. When it comes to religious stuff, his answers are unfailingly hand-waving, nonspecific malarkey.

Other frustrating things: - "All atheists are actually believers they just don't know it." We have evolved behaviors which enable us to function in groups. One of those behaviors is a general disinterest in killing one another for no reason.

  • Nazis were atheists (they were absolutely not)

This makes me even sadder that Hitchens is dead. He would have demolished Peterson and his garbage handwaving mysticism.

Here's a few:

ACB - Best Russian promotion. There's some really good talent here but business-wise things aren't looking good. 2 shows had to be cancelled so the future is uncertain.

KSW - Best European promotion. Based out of Poland with HUGE local support. They like putting on freakshow fights but have some really good talent too. Incredibly good production value.

ONE - Based out of SE Asia, like KSW their local following is crazy. Fights are generally really good because they're mostly former Thai fighters trying to take each other's heads off.

RIZIN - Japanese fighting platform formed from the remnants of PRIDE. I wouldn't really call it a league since there aren't any belts or divisional hierarchy, mostly just one-off fights. The exception is they will hold Grand Prixs (tournaments) at certain weight classes. Their talent is for the most part borrowed from other Japanese organization. Their presentation is super theatrical and fights are almost always entertaining. Their biggest star is a kickboxer so they are slowly making that a bigger part of their product.

PFL - A rebranding of the World Series of Fighting. It's the 3rd biggest American promotion. They introduced a regular season/ playoff structure where seeding is based on points culminated in the regular season. More points are given for finishes so this has incentivized fan friendly fights. Their talent is fairly good, think low to mid UFC level.

BAMMA, Cage Warriors - where UK and Irish fighters begin their careers.

FNG, M1, WFCA - Second-tier Russian organizations, all have some very talented fighters. The first is in disarray because it's main financial backer was arrested, the second just formed a partnership with the UFC (2 of their fighters will be on the Moscow card) and the last is run by a murderous dictator.

When you say Rizin's biggest star is a kickboxer, are you talking about Horiguchi? Or am I missing someone?

I really enjoy the presentation. Their roster seems lackluster though.

He hasn't full embraced it. To do that he needs to walk out to the cage like the Purple Cobras did in Dodgeball.

Awesome fight. Nemkov's leg kicks his last fight were so brutal that it was hard to watch. Hope he takes this one, I like Phil Davis but don't need to see him against Bader again.

Allah knows he's got enough. They have like 14 cousins they could have wheeled out to fight him.

Artem vs Said would have been good. Maybe too much size difference tho

r/boxing after Wilder - Ortiz: Wilder is wild and will get outclassed by Fury/Joshua

r/boxing after Joshua - Parker: Joshua's overrated. Gets starched by Wilder and Fury dances around him.

r/boxing after Fury - Pianeta: Fury gets starched within 3 round by Wilder/Joshua.

I thought the Sterling fight was legit complete garbage. Lopez was ok but nothing special. Font fight was really good. Those are all the recent ones I remember well.

Munhoz, Caraway and the Dillashaws were all really good.

I won’t speak for anybody else but I find him to be an extremely low volume counterpuncher, and I can’t really name an exciting fight of his. He always drags his opponents to a glacial crawl, and outside of Lopez hasn’t finished in 5 years.

His volume is actually pretty normal for the division. He lands more sig strikes per minute than both Dom and Cody. I thought the Munhoz, Caraway and Dillashaw fights were all really good.

Stamann was like 9 and Caraway 10 after that fight and they just stayed close to there for a while until Caraway dropped out one week.

There really isn't a talented young Bellator prospect who hasn't built that hype on crushing cans.

And the Sages of the UFC are super rare. Most of the guys who get signed in that promotion have already made their way through lesser promotions to work through the kinks.

Bellator is serves as both a major and regional level MMA promotion. Nothing wrong with that or how they match up their prospects imo. It's not like they're putting 10 - 0 guys against debutants.

It's a lot more effective if you're a thicker guy. Take a look at Prazeres' back.
