She's a contender now. This is WMMA we're talking about.

That was a fantastic card.

Can't wait for Francis vs Stipe, and I'm sad we won't get to see Conor vs Max 2.

Gaethje vs Alvarez was incredibly great.

The Overeem KO was incredibly sick. I'd favour Miocic but anyone who can crack like that has a chance so Ngannou might just win.

The Aldo fight was just pretty depressing outside of Holloway being amazing as ever.

Aldo's leg kicks at this point are a myth. They're not a weapon he's had in his arsenal like he used to for longer than he ever did. Aldo throws them, Rogan cums, Holloway doesn't care, Aldo sees that, throws less, Rogan cums, Holloway doesn't care, Aldo throws them less again, Rogan cums again the next time he throws another that doesn't do much.
That gas tank that struggled for 5 at his best is now struggling for three, his punches don't have as much pop. The stoppage was pretty bad but I'm not gonna complain about it too much. Aldo was clearly done a good 20 to 30 seconds before the fight was called but he wasn't getting pummelled into the mat super badly.

That's the fight game though, a young, hungry warrior comes along and the old guard get decimated.

That'll be both cool and good regardless of who wins.

Would be cool if TJ won so he can go "I'm the only active double champ in UFC history" and rile up McGregor fans.

She lost to Randa Markos back on TUF, but yeah. She's Fitch esque in her ability to win in completely uninteresting ways.

They were his best weapon. Everybody noticed that. Everybody tried to figure out how to nullify it. A lot did figure out how to get him to throw them less (like Frankie and Chad) Max is the first guy to do that and beat him, because Max is a monster, despite looking like the kid in Stranger Things that tells them a girl beat their high score at Frogger.

What the gently caress, Max Holloway didn't have a striking coach until after he lost to Conor. With his odd face, catchphrase, Diaz brand chin and desire to represent a people and/or culture by beating the poo poo out of people this might just be the perfect fighter

The Ngannou knockout was sick, but it was also probably the most worried I've been about the guy getting KTFO'd. I was super relieved when Overeem got up to congratulate Ngannou

Congratulations on winning six straight at featherweight. Your reward is to headline a fight night card in your hometown and be kicked in the legs for 25 minutes by a bored-looking Jose Aldo in front of 4500 drunk people.

what's crazy about ngannou's KO, to me, is that i think that's not even his hardest left uppercut knockout. when he hit luis henrique with that punch i thought he might have killed him, henrique's skin flew like two inches off his skull like a cartoon

and he's not a southpaw. christ

Max was only 21 when he fought Conor and he's gotten so drat good since then. Shame it'll never happen because Conor won't make weight with concrete shoes/other excuse here.
