I wonder if GSP gassing was from him being off for so long or just him being old/up a division. I know there's no real answer to that question, I'm just curious if this is how he's gonna be from now on or if it was some ring rust. Cause if he doesn't have the cardio he used to he could get in a looooot of trouble. Pulled it out last night and it owned but it was looking bad for a but.

I think saying that Dillashaw throws head kicks without setup is kind of a disservice to him. He's not just going in with them, he jumps in and uses them to test range and follows up on them quite well. He uses weird angles on them too so they come from a slightly different angle than you expect. It's not like say, late career cro cop who just really threw out arbitrary kicks.

Wonderboy is basically white gangly Machida.

Karate counter puncher
Trained by dad
Drinks piss???

Does cool karate stuff if you engage him, but if you don't it might be a loooooong night.

Then you put him up against a guy who likes standing with his back to the cage doing nothing and you have the most electrifying instant rematch in UFC history.

Fun MMAth fact: I wasn't sure if you got to this result by going through Gomi's first UFC fight to Florian or by going through his loss to Sergey Golaev, so I double checked it and it turns out both paths lead to McGregor.

If you don't match Woodley up against an awkward but dangerous counterstriker (twice) who never makes the first move, or the best BJJ specialist in the division, then he probably wouldn't fight so carefully.

ok now explain all the other woodley fights that sucked

I don't hate Woodley, but it seems pretty obvious by now that his style either leads to brutal KO's (cool) or horrifically plodding decisions (not cool).

The first fight was decently competitive up to the point where he got brutalized. I'll still watch it.

There have been some cuts today:

Takanori Gomi - 4-13
Hacran Dias - 3-5
Henrique De Silva - 2-4
Adriano Martins - 4-3
Carlos Felipe - 0-0 (pissed hot and got a two year suspension before ever fighting for UFC)

Edit: These are their UFC records.

How the gently caress did Gomi have 17 UFC fights? I guess I wasn't paying attention when they were shuffling out his corpse for every Japanese event.

E: he had 13 total fights, not losses. Still, gently caress.

I know HW is a cess pool but is there any justification for Cain being the #3 HW when he's won one fight in 4 years and it was against Browne? He isn't even scheduled for any fights and was last pulled from a card almost a year ago for health reasons.

I would favor Cain in a fight against anyone except Miocic. I mean really yeah he should be labeled inactive and taken off, but heavyweight is just that bad.

His career is gonna go down as a huge what if. gently caress AKA for ruining his body. Prime Cain was the most insanely good HW I ever saw in that he made the division look like even more of an embarrassment than it usually did. It's like, the division doesn't need any help to look like fat idiots cause they do it pretty good on they're own, but the pace he worked at was just on such a different level than everyone else.

I was with a couple of people who had never watched a UFC before when I watched Cain-Bigfoot 1 and they're still traumatised from it.

Highlights from the Shanghai card from me:
- the incredibly corny translator
- one Chinese fighter coming out to the theme to The Journey West, 2 coming out to two different versions of Once Upon a Time in China
- none of the Chinese fighters having any mic skills and also incredibly soft voices not helped by the low mic
- Li Jingliang charging over the cage all the while the door is open right next to him

The Once Upon A Time In China song is the GOAT of kung fu hype up songs.

Also, GSP is gay and/or mostly interested in thick, black girls. But aren't we all?
