Overeem used to be on the other end of that.

See: Overeem - Fujita

But yeah, Ngannou knockouts make me hope the other guy can stand up afterwards. Jesus christ.

the Ewerton Texeira KO as well. https://youtu.be/c1SwrvgcSis?t=110

I feel like being able to see all of Aldo's mouth while he's got his back to the camera has to count for something.

I've been watching mma a long time and that overeem ko is the first time I've been legitimately scared a dude might be dead.

Overeem putting Fujita into a month long coma was pretty terrifying.

Yoel killing Weidman was bad, too. The fact Weidman was shooting and the downward angle of the knee made it look utterly brutal

I still can't believe how dumb the Reem's gameplan was. He abandoned his running which has lately become his thing to engage in the worst, most ill fated way imaginable.

i might be wrong but that was basically the first punch ngannou threw

Jon Jones has similar dimensions (actually, he out reaches Ngannou), though any sparring with him still wouldn't be otherwise adequate prep, power or style wise.

Jones punishment and suspension should be lifted so he can fight Ngannou.

I think that would be better made into a cross cut with Silva throwing the front kick and switching to the bathtub right before it connects.

Oh it's only in ultimate team. They're trying so hard to replicate fifa it's ridiculous.

They're actually "card packs" just like in FIFA and they were there in the last game too. Nerds just notice now because their line in the sand was a $5 Darth Vader.

I haven't been paying attention, what is Frankie Edgar's expected recovery time? Is he expected to be good in time for Max's next bout or is the UFC kind of quietly hoping Ortega beats Cub? I don't see a super clear and compelling challenger on the immediate horizon.

Aren't broken orbitals typically a 6 mo post-fight suspension? He might be out a while.

Lineker should move up to 45 and fight Holloway. That fight would be sick as gently caress.

I'm guessing $5 because you can make McGregor defend a belt in the demo, so they're clearly going for a whole "fantasy world" angle with the new game.

My buddy and I were talking about Holloway/Nate Diaz at 155 and how sick that could potentially be.

I don't think they'd pay him $15 million for it so it's irrelevant though.

The Diaz brothers will probably never fight in the UFC again. Nick is Nick and Nate overestimates his worth by about 15million.
