The substance that Yoel popped for was called "Shred RX". I can't remember who I heard say it but it was something along the lines of "If something called Shred RX doesn't have drugs in it then you should ask for your money back".

Thanks for putting the thread up CommonShore, I had to fly out for work on Friday and just got back home. I could just about put together a few shitposts on my phone, certainly couldn't get an OP going.

That won't be a problem unless Yamasaki is literally the ref again.

The people who blamed the UFC matchmaking for the Shevchenko debacle are loving idiots because anyone else would have stopped it quickly.

That's very true, but the fight still had no business being sanctioned. A 14-3 mma fighter who is also a kickboxing world champion and considered one of the best female muay thai fighters in the world, with a 18-year combat sports career vs someone who started training fighting three years ago and is a blue belt in bjj. Sure, she had an 8-0 record but some of the girls she beat had records like 4-8, 2-5 and 0-6.

What's really stupid about it is that it makes no one look good. Bullet looks bad for beating the poo poo out of a tomato can, Cachoiera looks bad for how viciously she got mauled, her corner look like idiots for letting her go back out there after the first, the UFC looks bad because of how long it was left to go for, Yamasaki is always going to look like he has atlanto-axial subluxation due to having congenital trisomy on the 21st chromosome, and the commission looks bad for letting them get into the octagon together.

It's a real shift away from the Joe Silva school of booking where it would have been good for the promotion going forward no matter who wins. Imagine Cachoiera got insanely lucky and won this. You're going to put her in the #1 contender spot at W125 like they did with Schevchenko? gently caress no.

I forgot to place a bet though

Does this make Henri Hooft something like 1-9 in recent coaching?

Weidman demanding a title shot is comical.

Hey now, since he lost the belt he got brutally knocked out by Third Round Romero, then brutally knocked out by His Own Idiocy, then submitted a fat welterweight. Totally worthy of a title shot!

I think Cowboy realizes his 170 train is derailed and there's no real path to a title for him there whereas he has the potential to come down to 155 and make a 2-3 fight run at the title.

Agreed, but I think all three top-3 155 guys beat him handily.

UFC has been trash for a while, but this summer should have fights like Stipe vs Cormier, Mighty Mouse vs Dillashaw, and Conor is going to fight somebody. If it's for the LW belt who knows, probably not, but he'll fight somebody.

I've seen some noise around the place about a trilogy fight with Nate. Which isn't something I'm all that interested in from a competition point of view, but whatever. The spectacle will be fun at least.

Apparently Conor has started referring to himself as "The Champ Champô" because he wants to have that as a trademark he can use for merchandise, and is in a dispute with Champion sportswear over the use of the term.

Shout out to my boy Secret Moves MMA on twitter for wading into the sea of bullshit that is Conor McGregor doing anything that isn't fighting in the cage.

Who would be the best 165 fighter in the world? RDA?

165 would be great for everyone, and either RDA or Khabib would be the answer to your question.

But I think the reason the talk about it is coming out now is that Conor and GSP are going to fight for the inaugural belt. It's the biggest money fight around right now and they get to crown their first ever triple-weight champion.

Then GSP big-brothers Conor all over the cage.

Of course I could be completely wrong but it's the dumbest thing they could do from a pure competition standpoint, so you know it's going to happen.
