Glover Teixeira... WOW! that man is all heart.
What a performance.
What a performance.
I made the comment not with respect to "hanging on too long", but rather because I felt that Silva, when he DID come back was not the same fighter. He seemed more cautious, less dominant.You raise an interesting question: how much should an athlete be judged by his whole career, and how much by the time when he was at his best?
There are quite a few athletes who "hang on too long" and end up with a tail-end to their careers that are anti-climactic. Hey, it's their lives and their careers, and they don't "owe" us a timely retirement. But we do tend to respect someone who knows when to say "when". (And a guy who doesn't quit too early. It's complicated.)
I have to watch it first! I was streaming the fights that night. But I was so sleepy I barely made it to the end of the Tony/Oliveira fight. I passed out right after the decision.I'm surprised no love yet for Figueiredo V Moreno. That fight was epic!
I want to see him fight Chimaev. That would be fun.I have to watch it first! I was streaming the fights that night. But I was so sleepy I barely made it to the end of the Tony/Oliveira fight. I passed out right after the decision.
Did y'all see the Kevin Holland KO over Jacare Souza? Sucks to see Jacare lose like that, but that was so impressive
Hard to say because Chimaev is so new, but he looked like a savage in all the fights I’ve seen him in.Who do you favor in that fight?
While I think Holland has fought the better opponents, this fight could be 50/50.
I just wish the Paul brothers would go away. They are about as talented and useful to society as a Kardashian.I literally found out who the paul brothers were a few months ago.
With that said, what do you all think about the younger paul brother boxing Ben askren?
Going from what we've seen, askren has terrible boxing. It wouldn't surprise me if he gets KO'D. I definitely don't have confidence in askren if this happens.
What really stinks, is if he loses. The headlines will read paul brother beats a former 2 time mma champ. I really hope they go with someone else.
