    Lol, yeah. I am so done with UFC for a while... Can't stand Adesanya and his annoying bs. Pereiira effed up, cause he was doing really well and winning. He should've just stayed back and picked Adesanya apart with leg kicks and punches, was working. But he went all in and got caught.

    Alex got bamboozled and Pissrael landed the luckiest punch of the century. Well, I guess congratulations to him for being 3-1 against Pereira now, only took him 4 fights to win one of them.

    Blaydes can't even get past Black Balls Beast.

    Stipe maybe, but he's fucking old and Ngannou ground his chin to dust.

    Blaydes was winning against Lewis, but then got caught on a shot. Jones doesn't have that kind of striking power, so it would be a pretty different fight.

    Yeah, Jones wouldn't even get taken down once by Blaydes.
    Islam by submission r1

    2. Makhachev got points for taking Volk down in earlier rounds, but he was not able to do any damage or threaten anything serious. In fact, in the 4th, he got his back but all he was able to do is just lay there and try lazy RNC attempts none of which came close.
    Meanwhile Volk was raining blows on his head from the front.

    3. So basically if you don't credit Makhachev with ground control (where he wasn't able to shit), stand up was mostly even, with both guys doing damage at times, but then Volk came on strong in the 5th and was pulling away.

    Morning Kombat, one of the biggest MMA podcasts, said he graded it 3-2 for Makhachev, but giving it 3-2 to Volk was absolutely legit as well.

    The fight was extremely close, nowhere near Khabib levels of pubstomping. Some thought Islam was secretly the better fighter because he had grappling AND striking but this fight proved that Khabib is and will always be the GOAT.
    Tell me you're gonna watch Islam smesh Charlie Olives...

    Probably, but will your wife let you? ;)

    That card is fucking stacked btw, like 6 must see fights at least.

    Would love to see Oliveira fuck Makhachev up, people been sleeping on him a long time.

    Yah, I already told my wife. AAAAAAAAANNNNDDDDDDD NEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
    I'm picking Texeira via decision

    I just think Jiri's act is extremely corny and he has no potential to be a great champ, he gets tagged way too much. Basically a less shit Johnny Walker.
    PorkyThePaladin
    PorkyThePaladin
    Meh, Johny Walker beat nobody of significance ever, Jiri already beat Reyes and Ozdomir in UFC, and he beat some stars in other leagues (Nemkov, King Mo). He might not have a long run with his fighting style, but he might reign for a bit.

    Whatever scares Jones away from returning to LHW, so he can finally get windmilled by Ngannou
    I'm picking Rosenstrike via KO

    I am picking myself via falling asleep from these shit cards lately...

    Last card was a snoozefest.
    When do the fights start?

    That "they rigged the scales" line never works for me either...

    Where are you faggot?

    Let the record show that porky was masturbating to gay porn and was late to the game.

    I was always curious why judo hasn't had more success in MMA/UFC. Seems like a legit martial art, somewhat similar to wrestling and bjj which are very successful in MMA, but other than a few fighters (Karo Parisian, Rhonda Rousey) and maybe some fighters using a little bit of it like Khabib, you really don't see it much.

    One explanation I read somewhere which kinda makes sense, is that judo guys like Greco Roman wrestlers approach the opponent standing straight up, which leads to disaster in MMA, where they can be punched in the face.

    Freestyle wrestling emphasizes shooting for legs much more, which supposedly keeps you safer against strikers.

    Also, I guess throwing a nearly naked gi-less, sweaty and highly balanced/trained opponent is much harder than in judo where they wear gis and cant punch/knee you in the face.
