The Conor and Cyborg division championships have a long and storied history and I can't believe anyone would besmirch the reputation of the UFC's Conor McGregor or Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino divisions.

It's actually insulting that they've decided to change the Bisping division back into the Middleweight division to let GSP have a fight.

The Glover vs Gus fight was one sided as gently caress but Gus still made harder work of it than he needed to. Teixeira was clearly outmatched from the get go and Gus was sprinting out of range at the first sign of offense. Frustrating fight, really.

I'd imagine it would depend more on the progress of the police investigation more than anything, and I can't imagine that would take so long as to stop public transit through the area on Saturday.

the real question is

who gives a gently caress about luke thomas or luke rockhold?
the only time luke thomas was ever relevant about anything was when jon jones said he wouldn't talk to him for seemingly no reason outside of the fact that he's luke thomas

Tony Ferguson might be busting out the Dragonball references, which is the strongest base in MMA, but the indoor sunglasses look he always pulls nullifies it.

Conor vs Tony would be a sick fight. Shame Conor has no intention of ever defending a belt.

I don't like his taste in video games so he's a dork and a loser and less importantly, a good fighter.

I guess after he wins tonight he'll say he's going to wait and see what happens in Cody vs TJ and then call out Magomed Bibulatov the day after

"People just like bigger fighters bro."

Meanwhile, the world is obsessed with Conor McGregor and few people could pick Stipe Miocic or Deontay Wilder out of a lineup.

Conor's popularity is barely a fair comparison for anyone because it's almost incomprehensible how he got so popular and even then, it's mostly because he talks mad poo poo in a funny accent and then the fact sparks people a distant second.

It's not at all incomprehensible. Talking mad poo poo and backing it up is exactly how you get popular.

Many have done both of these things and can't compare to his popularity. The amazing bit is just how successful he has been with it, not that the poo poo talk etc is how he got popular

For some reason I just had the idea of Max Holloway vs Justin Gaethje and I felt the need to let others imagine this insanely sick fight that should happen someday.

He did dodge TJ. You can dress it up how you want but when push comes to shove, he was offered a contract to fight TJ and he made noise until he got one to fight Borg, a massively easier fight.

It's pointless to be worried about TJ missing weight when TJ has never missed weight and say you want to fight Ray Borg instead, who is noted for missing weight.

Josuke Higashikata
Mar 7, 2013




It's a much less pressing concern to have about TJ over Borg considering TJ's a professional fighter and it can be assumed he'll do everything he can to make weight, including when he's openly saying he will make weight, he's more trustworthy to make the weight than someone who has missed weight consistently, and still missed the first appointment they had for this matchup.

It just smacks of DJ wanting to get his record first and then take super fights after that. Which is fair enough if he's transparent about that.

Also, the man was angling to fight Cody, the guy who beat the brakes off TJ.

The sparring footage that never appeared.

I think Cody's gonna whoop TJ, and that DJ would be a rightful wide favourite against either winner of next months title fight.

He cheapshot sparring partners and ruined a guys career via illegal shots to the back of the head in sparring.

This is all provable, just ask Cody and Urijah.

Being a piece of poo poo is seemingly the most vital part of being a pro fighter, yes.

Josuke Higashikata
Mar 7, 2013




After Bisping wins and has both Anderson Silva and Georges St.Pierre in his W column, USADA should waive Jon Jones' ban so Bisping can beat a roided out Bones too and become the eternal Greatest of All Time beyond all argument.


(Because people stupidly believe that he may not already be the GOAT and try to pretend otherwise.)

Yeah, I'm just not sure he's going to get KO'd from it. He recovers well.

He'll give Conor fits if he makes into round 3 onwards, I reckon.

Conor has yet to defend a belt in the UFC right? Unification but no defenses. At one point I said he would not defend a belt before the end of this year, and I still stand by that.

He didn't defend a belt in the B League where he had two belts or in the UFC, but he did win while interim champ so he has that under his belt, yeah.

I doubt there's any criminal aspect of it you can assign to hiding and fighting with staph even if it's gross misconduct, reckless endangerment of a person's health and morally bankrupt.

If I were the UFC, I'd cut him in a heart beat though. That poo poo is no joke.

Oh that article says lying on those forms is perjury so that's actually pretty big even if it's a small scale incident. Woops, hope getting whooped by Tony Ferguson and endangering his health was worth the money you thought you'd get but are probably not going to see much of.
