Consistent with the amount of a poo poo her corner gave about her well being throughout the fight.

I don’t like the new scoring where it’s easier to get an 8-10 round I liked the old system of
10-9: anything from a close round to an asskicking
10-8: the judge feels the ref was wrong to not stop the fight
10-7: one of the fighters is Danny “Boy” Downes

He still gassed very, very badly against floyd but at leasts hes training cardio

Being able to box for 9 rounds with a boxer so far above your level it was considered a circus fight in his first professional boxing match was the most impressive display of gas I've seen from Conor. He was actually still fighting about 5 rounds past where I expected him to gas and die.

.... Conor McGregor.

There are professional boxers with half a hundred fights that are completely gassed in the championship rounds - only 3-6 minutes more than Conor - and they're fighting people that don't completely outclass them so severely that everyone is only watching to see when exactly it is they die.

Jacare vs. Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 224. That's actually a pretty intriguing fight. I could see Kelvin getting the better of Jacare.

Instead of arguing about it I just watched it. Weidman dropped into the cage assfirst, but his neck didn't go limp. He grabbed a desperation single and rode out the last 10 seconds. He was lucid when talking to his corner and sharp at the begining of the next round.

It was a bad spot but by no means desperate like when Weidman got smashed by Romero or Moose.

Correct. But besides that, the fight was over 10 minutes long and kelvin had a full 10 seconds of anything resembling success. It was not a close fight.

To my eyes, jacare has crazy subs, and legitimately scary power in his hands, but his wrestling was never better than pretty good and his technical ability with his hands is limited. Essentially, his skill set means he should be able to annihilate everyone except the championship echelon. And that's pretty much how his career played out.

If he had better wrestling to utilise his subs or better technical striking to land his power, he'd be champ. But he doesn't. So he isn't.

idk his only actual loss in the last like seven years is whittaker, who's extremely good. i think jacare could easily have been champion if he didn't get robbed against yoel and got to fight rockhold again, or bisping, or whoever was champ.

i agree, he could easily be a champion, but i won't be sitting back in slack jawed amazement that he hasn't quite gotten there.
