They reckon he might be off for six month now, his leg is so jacked up.
He was using a cane backstage.

I think they should match up like this:

Poirier vs Charles Oliveira - for the vacant lw title

Chandler vs Gaethje - winner gets a title shot

Hooker vs Ferguson/Conor
 
Hell of performance by Usman. Specially after almost getting finished in the 1st. Burns could've been more patient there.

What a fight between Marquez and pitolo, wow.

It'll be interesting to see how Issy goes as a light heavyweight. On Joe Rogan he said he walks around at 200 pounds. Blachowicz probably is closer to 230 before the cut.

Also, if he wins will he be champ champ, or vacate the middleweight belt, because Usman reckons he might go up if he vacates.

It's adesanyas attitude that I never liked. I hope Jan knocks him the hell out.

Also. How convenient for Israel. He finally moves up to lhw after talking all the trash to jones. But never went up while Jon was champ. Dude has great skills, but he's a clown.

I guess that's the same as Usman saying he will go up only if Issy vacates the belt. If he was really serious why not just fight at his natural weight and try to win the middleweight belt? That would be a Nigerian super fight I would like to see.
 
I only watched the main card

Sucked to see Thiago Santos lose. I guess he's not the same after the knee surgery.

Respect to Dober for trying to keep active while he was getting outgrappled by makachev. Man, Islam is a beast on the ground. This is the second time I see him fight.

I can't believe people thought aljo was faking the damage from that blatant illegal knee. Not sure how yan didn't notice. It was a well deserved dq. Hopefully Sterling recovers.

Amanda nunes continues to steamroll her competition. Not even sure who's next for her, that will actually give her a challenge.

Nice to see Jan finally get the respect he deserves. Adesanya has no ground game it seems. Could potentially be the blueprint for his future opponents. Looks like glover is next for Jan.

Islam looks to be the new Khabib, I reckon. We’ll see when he gets more fights, but there are more than a few similarities.

Izzy said that muscles don’t win fights. Well, when you are getting pinned to the ground and smashed by a guy with twenty pounds on you, I guess they can.
 
Some really good fights last night. What a shame in the main event.

They really have to figure out the gloves situation. Trevor Whitman has a design. But I don't know what's stopping the ufc from using them

UFC wont use them unless they have the exclusive paten, which obviously the maker does not want to give them.
 
So, besides being easy on the eyes, does anyone give Tate a chance to "earn" a shot against Nunes? I figure two wins should be PLENTY for her to secure a title shot, but does anyone think Amanda is "beatable"?

Nope

Nunes put her away in 2 minutes when they fought. I don't see how she beats her after being away from fighting for 5yrs.

Also, it really sucked to see Stipe lose on Saturday night. I was really hoping he would win and retire. Francis seems like a humble guy, but it was definitely bittersweet.

I guess I'll take my crow plate now. I was one of those people that was convinced that Francis hadn't really improved much since their 1st fight.

Because his 4 wins after that were in the 1st round. And he just windmills the hell out of his punches in those fights hoping something lands. Plus his cardio wasn't, and I still think it hasn't been tested imo.

But power is the equalizer, and he has plenty of it.

I think woodley is done. You can't just spam and hope that overhand right lands without a backup plan.
 
I still hope Stipe calls it a day . . . he's had a stellar career, made a fair bit of $$$ (and I hope he's been smart with it), and he has a good career to go back to. He's closing in on 40 and there is no good reason to risk his health any further.

But . . . not my call.

Re: Woodley. I agree . . . adapt of fall behind, and he has not adapted.

Tate is tough as they come and, who knows? Maybe she has seen something in watching Nunes? Or, maybe she just wants another big payday? I'd like to see 2 fights for here first just to see what she has left.
