I wish Belcher had gone farther in his career. He had some really cool fights and looked so good in that Palhares fight, only to retire two fights later.

Also of note, Artem Lobov will be going 14-14 after his fight this weekend, finally acheiving his goal of the true 1:1 ratio.

There are no men like me. There's only me.

That guy actually headlined a ppv lol. His fight with Chris Avila is so pathetic to me because Avila appeared to have zero power and Lobov still looked timid.

The more time passes, the more we know about Palhares's career, and the more jiu jitsu I learn, the more appreciation I get for this fight. Belcher should get some kind of greatest performances of all time trophy for it.

Just some slightly yucky impetigo, which should go away with the anitbiotics. But i hate being on antibiotics; they're incredibly fatiguing and you can't drink (the one silver lining of a fight falling through is being able to stay up late drinking with friends again). So it loving sucks. If I develop any holes, they'll be well documented

Anyone got footage of Marquadt dropping that bomb on palhares after palhares complained about greasing? I don't have fight pass (spent all my money on foot cream so I can be like chad $)

Doing jiu jitsu really made me appreciate just how good most of these guys are. Their ability to think ahead, anticipate the next move and learn from prior experiences in the same fight is astounding to me. I wish I had those instincts.

The Belcher fight is also cool because the stakes are so much higher than usual. Palhares is such a shithead that he might actually give you a life-altering, career-ending injury even after you tap.

Palhares is up there with Jon Jones in the category of "I wish you weren't such a bad person so I could root for you because drat you're an entertaining fighter."

Palhares had some of the dumbest moments in MMA history (Marquardt, Belcher, Miller) but he was arguably the most dangerous grappler in UFC history.

He loving tapped Jake Shields who easily outgrappled Maia. Woulda liked to see what Demian could do from his back against Palhares.

Jake might have been concerned about his gouged and bleeding eyes to properly defend the submission

Holy gently caress man, I'm sorry.

Take that medicine like your life depends on it. MRSA comes next, and that poo poo will kill you or leave you half stupid.

Edit - Belcher retired on a hosed up eye, right?

Bendo's run in Bellator so far has shown that he was absolutely correct to take the guaranteed money contract over the one with incentives for winning.

the only fight weidman looked loving terrible in was the mousasi fight. he was regaining momentum in the rockhold fight after nearly being beaten to death until he threw the world's most ill-advised kick, he was in an extremely competitive fight with yoel until he ate a knee that mark hunt couldn't eat, mousasi fight was bad, then he spent three rounds casually, effortlessly, and without breaking a sweat making kelvin look like a child.

I especially liked when he let Kelvin think he almost knocked him out near the end of the first, since a child's self-esteem is very important.
