Well that, and I'm wondering if they'll postpone the card that's happening in 5 days.

Luke Rockhold is awkward high school nerd who is now a cocky jock but still awkward when trying to be cocky jock man

I'd say that he seems more like a dweeb who became a jock and now models his behaviour after the jocks that he saw in 80s party movies.

freud mayweather posted:

in later GSP fights he was markedly worse at completing takedowns, because his shots weren't nearly as fast and he wasn't covering the same distance. he was getting takedowns stuffed by Nick Diaz, so he probably doesn't have a chance of taking down Bisping.

Yeah GSP only landed 9 of 16 takedowns in that fight.

I just asked a doctor-

A staph infection can be in the skin, and it can spread to the blood. If it's at the "boil" stage it's probably not in the blood. If it becomes bacteremic, i.e. gets into the blood) it's likely that he'd be way way way too hosed up to fight, being septic and all.

Also a shower is exactly how to remove another person's dermal flora after close athletic contact - emulsify all of those oils and rinse em away with the kooties in there. Regular soap is good, but in a case like this, in which skin-to-skin staph exposure is confirmed and damaged skin is almost certain, chlorhexedine is probably the way to go.

The best-case (see: funniest) scenario is that we get a fightpass broadcast NSAC meeting (which they don't do anymore ) in which Kevin Lee cites on record what Dana did to Amanda Nunes and others as the reason that he didn't withdraw or disclose.

red19fire posted:

If by some miracle Jones gets a slap on the wrist, Dana 'owes him a fight'


Doesn't Dana cancel contracts for pettier reasons than '3 drug pops in as many years'? Maybe Jones has a better contract than the average $10k win/show journeyman but come on, Dana's done better people much dirtier.

It's because he doesn't want Jones as a free agent fighting for other promotions. From what I've gleaned from the Nick Diaz stuff, the contracts have a clause that the UFC needs to periodically offer fights if the fighter is eligible, or else the contract is void. What this whole thing means is that if Jones becomes eligible again, an offer will come.

Scott Coker doesn't get an erection at the thought of signing Josh Grispi, so Josh Grispi gets the boot. But Dana needs to keep a tighter leash on guys like Jones or even Josh Barnett, who have value as commodities to the competition. The UFC has too much to lose in terms of finance and legitimacy if Jones ends up in Bellator or Rizin - arguably more than they have to lose by keeping him on the roster.

Fight Night Gdansk this weekend.

Apparently Cerrone already has a big fight lined up for after Till. Till is a Brit who lived in Brazil for ages and speaks Portuguese, and he actually may be good at fighting. He's the dude who ragdolled a Brazilian in Brazil and then had the crowd behind him by the end of the speech. He's also a proper welterweight, and an undefeated rangy kickboxer.

Think there could be an upset lined up?

E. And this is the worst card I've ever seen for name recognition. The co-main features a woman with no UFC fights, and there's a middleweight fight on the main card with a dude who doesn't even have a wikipedia page. Andre Fili vs Artem Lobov is legit the next biggest fight on the card. Somehow Anthony Hamilton got another fight though..

Aspen Ladd is ok. I don't think that she'll ever be a significant contender, but I never thought that Shevchenko would, and the division is shallow, so She was scheduled to fight Jessica Eye about a month ago but was a late scratch for food poisoning. She'll probably beat Lansberg.

TJ is similar to a slightly easier to hit Cruz who makes up for it with a more varied striking game and heavier blows. I don't know if garbrandts chin has been really tested but if Cruz can stand up to Cody's power TJ probably can too. TJ if it goes to decision but Garbrandt if it gets stopped imo

Cody was KOed as an amateur by a guy who is now like 3-0 pro.

TJ Dillashaw has 5 KO/TKO Victories in 13 UFC Fights, or 38.4%.

Ronda Rousey had 3 KO/TKO Victories in 8 UFC fights, or 37.5%

So TJ Dillashaw has good enough striking to be on the cover of Ring magazine and beat Floyd Mayweather.

The promo shots and staredowns of JJ (glamour glamour) and Rose (psychopathic staredowns) are starting to give me a Rocky III feeling about this match. Rose's kryptonite is people who will wrestle her, and JJ isn't going to do that. That means we're looking at an aggressive kickboxing match with Rose threatening submissions here and there.

Rose by TKO or submission might be a live underdog bet. If available, Rose TKO (cuts) might have particularly good value as a long shot bet, and it's worth a fiver.
