Here's your new profile picture. Enjoy the beauty for one week.
Cyborg, Khabib, Magney, 100%
Ferguson and Mcducker are both contemplating retirement or Jenny Craig today.
fucking Khabib tho
the end game
Holly fought very well for the credit I was giving her, i hate her boxing even though she's very good at it, I wish she could move her head and and box from a defensive almost reactionary/counterer vs the kiai battering kind of assault that was happening.
Cyborg had no answer for the underhooks, Holly is tough but Cyborg is heavy handed, Holly's face was swollen very early on.
Would suck to see cyborg smash Megan Anderson
I want to see someone smash cyborg.
Fallon Fox might have a chance, eh?
Megan Anderson has height and reach on cyborg. She's a legit FW, I haven't seen her fight though. Cyborgs a beast but she's fought mostly bantamweights moving up to 45
How good is Cyborg's BJJ? Why would you let that fight go to a decision if you had the tools to get it done on the mat?
I think she wanted that KO over Holly who has the KO of Ronda.
Holly needed to kick her head off but I think Cyborg was (although to her credit winning) risking much by not trying to taker her down an choke her out.
Women's division needs better counter striking imo, when do we get to see a defensive genius like Floyd in women's mma?
I wish Sijara was 25 and about 15lbs heavier
Megan Anderson is a beast, but raw and with flaws in her game. Check out her fight from Invicta FC 21 against Charmaine Tweet, it perfectly sums up her strengths and weaknesses, namely that she's a big, powerful FW, but also extremely hittable. I want to see her and Cyborg mix it up, not sure I'd pick against Cyborg though.
Anderson vs cyborg would be outstanding
Don't make any bets with @Bublonichronic ,dude doesn't pay up.. Bitch move !
Alright, Starting now... you know I’m a rebel without a cause
Gather round as I predict tonight's winners!
You heard it here first! Take these predictions to the BANK!
Usman i'll be rooting for then he can go go bang it out with Colby.
The girls Eye & Faria on the prelims should be a banger? Looking forward more to that fight than the main card women tbh.
Michael Johnson looks good at 145, not sure how he made that cut as he was looking wide jawed and thick for a bit after the Gaetje fight.
picks/predictions for 220? Ngannou Cormier Barrossa Homasi Almeida rest of the card I'm kinda so so on and since Dana announced it Tony Ferguson all day long over Khabib at 223. That is assuming the eagle doesn't break down mentally, miss weight or blow a knee in camp. Thought el cucuy would be out longer after elbow surgery but apparently he's camp ready. I won't pack a lunch on this one the Mma gods have ruined this clash before. What are you guys thinking?
I got Khabib, it will be good build and fight.
My god how does Stipe beat this Ngannou? I am not sure he can but maybe he can, somehow.
I want to see Floyd McGregor 2, ring or octagon but i'd do ring again just to see Floyd 1 more.
I don't think mcgregor fights again til he faces gsp..huge payday and both retire.
No mohterfucking way we see Khabib v. Ferguson. I guarantee it. I'm not even getting hyped for this because I already know it won't happen.
Fuck Dana White for hyping this shit knowing the same thing
Why won’t it happen?
Picture what kind of violence will ensue with Tony on his back throwing elbows and Khabib putting on the grappling pain, will be vicious as all hell. I think it happens, unless they know Conor will come back and are just playing with emotions. Serra and Bisping made a great point that the better story line is to vacate the belt and take some time off for Conor and then come back and reclaim (attempt to) in the face of all the shit talkers. If he comes back and loses now, he's going to lose a lot of fire power in the press imo, if he vacates he loses nothing and he can still come back straight to a title shot.
IMO Conor should take all he can from boxing now, do the Floyd 2 fight, do the Manny fight, then come back to MMA, if you go into MMA and lose, who wants to fight you in the ring for the paycheck? Maybe they can still do the numbers, but for me it will have fizzled out some.
This is #1 bullshit. Ferguson can't beat him, I don't there's anyone at 155 who can. He makes the best guys in the world look like amateurs. Lee had him mounted when khabib gets that position it's over.
GSP would beat him easily. He's never really fought anyone good, post usada Aldo that's it. If Chad Mendez (who's much smaller) can dominate him for two rounds on two weeks notice imagine what GSP would do. I think Khabib wins the belt and we will never see CM again. He'll go into boxing where he has a built in excuse to lose. I remember when he fought ND he went from a skinny fat guy before the fight to 6'5"- 230lbs after the fight.
You'd pay $100 to watch that match again? I think the outcome would be the same. There's not a snow balls chance in hell Floyd fights in MMA. Mighty Mouse offered to fight him with no grappling. I'd bet Cyborg would whip his ass in MMA.
@KryptoBud sure, but would pay $100 to watch Floyd with anyone. As of now we'll never have that opportunity again, which is a sad day in combat sports boxing specific. So ya to get him in the ring even to box up McGregor, I'll take it.
I'm taking Stipe, gotta go with the proven even tho my gut says Ngannou is like nothing we've seen before... but could just be framed very well? What are we missing with Ngannou? Where are the gaps?
