UFC 213 is up. Romero and Whittaker is worth another watch, as our some of the prelims.

i just rewatched Romero/Whittaker last night. between rd 2 & 3 Bob's corner says to him push kicks no more turn kicks, ignore the leg injury and move forward, punch him in the face, and come on strong at the beginning of the round. and then he went out and did all those things. it was pretty rad. Romero couldn't do anything about the push kicks. any time he tried to grab him, Bob just shucked him off easily. and then Yoel really started slowing down.

also rewatched Browne/Oleinik. so fun to watch Browne try to throw laboured knees in the clinch after Oleinik tore up his body with dozens of huge punches.

Whittaker's game planning and adaptation are insanely good, and his cornermen are a big part of that.

If you ordered the Mayweather/McGregor fight on UFC.TV you may end up getting a refund because that is what happened to me. No clue why as the stream was perfect on my end aside from like 3 times it stuttered during the introductions of the fighters.

So keep an eye out on that I guess.

What fight was the "break through" for Houston Alexander? I've been drawing a blank on that for a solid month.

He KO'd Keith Jardine in his first UFC fight but I remember his next match after that with Alessio Sakara making everyone I knew go "OH poo poo HE'S FUN TO WATCH"

That may or may not have been the fight where Sakara rubbed blood from his head onto the referee so he could see when the referee checked him during one of the rounds.

I'm thinking of whichever fight he stormed around the ring afterwards and looked like he was about to kill everyone ever.

So probably both of those.

He only had 4 fights in the UFC before being cut if I remember, then he came back for the greatest Heavyweight fight ever in UFC against Kimbo.

Was it a hundred bucks for you? These threads made me realise people around the world won't pay one hundred bucks to watch a fight at eight am.

It was $35 to watch it via UFC.tv in South Korea. A lot of bars used it to show the fight and people I was texting said the bars couldn't log in for a while due to traffic load.

obviously also Machida v Shogun both fights. In the UFC after forrest crushed him he developed his power punching and became a much different fighter,. his knees dissipated into the ether sometime between 2006-2007 so there was some ugliness there until about 2009 when he started getting a lot of KOs. before he always volume TKO'd guys.

v Coleman both eras to see him get manhandled

This seems like the best bet for a thread to ask in. Anyone remember which fight had Brian Ebersole I think first toughing out a guillotine attempt for a long while and then keep sticking his neck out for a guillotine to the point that his gassed opponent refused to go for it any longer because it was obviously impossible to choke Ebersole. Thanks.

I think it was Chris Lytle or Claude Patrick.

Excellent, many thanks to you both. I am off to watch a man be terribly, terribly confused about not winning a fight when by all accounts they should have.
