I didnt watch it but apparently he was a stupid dick head on the show and lots of people didnt like him. I only started watching him after that and i like him so i will never watch it

yeah he was a huge rear end in a top hat and got drunk and said some weird poo poo to people but he is so fun to watch fight that it is easy to forget it. but you have the right idea in not watching his tuf season.

Him vs Khabib is the fight I've been most excited to see for a long time so this card is ridiculous.

Yeah I just remember he gets drunk as gently caress at one point and starts yelling at some dude who's divorced or something like WHERES YOUR SON HUH WHERES YOUR SON WHERES YOUR SON trying to start a house fight. Really sweet mma boxer though.

lol yeah here we go, the target of his rant was going through custody issues over his kid

quote:

Why did I bring up Charlie's son? I have no idea, but I have a guess. My birth father wasn't there for me growing up. Somehow Charlie's situation mixed in with my adrenaline from fighting and the booze all worked together to bring up my own issues. I learned a lot about myself watching that on tape and how I felt about certain things in my life. I was under a lot of pressure, I was trying to bottle up frustration and it didn't work. Well, it worked for a while, but ultimately did not.

I said some things I shouldn't have said. I was in a weird place. I was having crazy dreams in that house. The entire experience took me out of my own independence and removed all of my release valves.

I really regret saying what I said to Charlie and we've talked about it since the incident. I've spoke to Clay Harvison and Chuck, too. We are in a better place now than we were that night.


In Trump's America that's pretty much a straight up hand on heart apology.

The best outcome will be for Khabib to sit on Tony for 5 rounds punching him in the head, just riding the line between stopping the fight and not. 5 rounds, 10-7 each round. Too bad this isn't in New York.

That would be a poo poo outcome.

Tony is super slick in scrambles and isnt afraid throw up crazy poo poo.

I can't wait for this or the main event and I think a lot of people especially the betting public are really overlooking just how good ferguson is.

This is a dude who hosed up Barboza using kickboxing and then solidly out grappled thompson and trujillo.

I can certainly see the possibility of ferguson cracking khabib and getting a sub in a scramble. I can also see t ferg getting bulled and ridden.

Im full rogan in bald man shout times excited.

Dickhead Tony "where's your son" Ferguson called Khabib a bully for some reason, I hope Khabib suplex him into a crater

even if khabib can dominate tony on the ground, khabib has slowed down in the third before and he's never gone five. and tony will not be easy to hold down for any amount of time. i'm thinking tony takes this, and will bet that way, but honestly either outcome will be sick and the fight cannot be bad.

oh and maia / masvidal is confirmed apparently. did we already discuss this?

...and the pitch!

They begin again


Khabib is my current "I have no idea how he could lose his undefeated streak" guy. I have faith in him and if he wins I'll probably have a heart attack from the Khabib/Conor hype and eventual fight.

he was an insufferable handjob on tuf and I specifically regarded him as subhuman garbage up until his fights became very fun to watch on the regular

i think overeem is gonna try to get it to the ground where he has an enormous advantage

basically everybody who has fought Hunt in the UFC had the same advantage, but not many have been able to punish him for it. In his title run Overeem mixed in takedowns and grappling in several fights, but I think you can also see he's very conservative about getting caught in striking exchanges (i.e. getting on his bike against Stipe). Hunt has shown that he's vulnerable to somebody shooting in on a single, but Overeem's preferred entries are different--compare what happened to Hunt against Lesnar and Stipe to what he did to Mir and Nelson.

The difference might be that Hunt has to actually respect Overeem's striking, which would help Alistair set up takedowns.

At this point I believe they want Lobov to be the first in octagon death. Cub is a tough loving fight for a guy who only has a job due to nepotism.
