Well Cyborg beat Evinger decisively so the logical step is to have her fight a woman who got loving crushed by Evinger. (and whose first GIS result is Laura Sanko, who Evinger kissed in the ring).

They don't actually want her to lose.

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.

As another example Estevan Payan was matched up against Jeremy Stephens in Stephens' Featherweight debut, and got loving mauled. He's managed to win two fights in the last five years. A fight a fighter isn't ready for can ruin them.

This seems like common sense and oftentimes is true, but sometimes the issue of someone's chin is they cut too much weight that they're more likely to be knocked out due to having less fluid around their brain to cushion it from concussive force and moving up in weighr actually helps, despite there being theoretically harder hitters.

Rob Whittaker got knocked out by Stephen Thompson and rocked a few other times as a UFC welterweight and is now the undefeated champeen at middleweight.

He also got badly outstruck by Court McGee.

gently caress, that Romero rematch is a really interesting one. Their first fight was weird. Neither could get that much done, but Whittaker did an amazing job of nullifying most of Romero's offence, which is a feat in its own right.

I think weidman is very good but wont be remembered as an all time great. I think the vitor fight showed that he was beatable by a barely roided quitter

What? Vitor got in about three punches in a flurry, didn't rock him, and got finished in less than three minutes. The narrative of 'Vitor nearly beat him' is one of the strangest things, along with 'GSP quit to avoid USADA'

Vitor staggered him with a left, landed a few not so clean shots in that flurry then gassed and quit 80 seconds into the fight. I thought i said Weidman looked beatable, i dont think i said he almost lost.

I think the fight that showed him to be beatable would be any of the three where he was beaten. I just don't see how you drew that conclusion from Vitor flailing against his guard and looking kind of dangerous early on. It reminds me of being describing Che Mills 'lighting up' Rory McDonald.

like look at the dramatic improvements he made between fight 1 and 2. he went from crashing and burning in round 2 to matching diaz's pace over 5 rounds. true he started to tire in i think rd 3 but diaz wasnt far behind him in that fight

He badly gassed in the second fight, too. About the same point. He had a better gameplan, though.

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.

C'mon man, he boxed for about two rounds and just kind of staggered around the rest of the time. There is no universe where his cardio in the Floyd fight was in anyway impressive.

Look, you may be right. He still seemed like he had serious gas issues. He just did a much better job of nullifying Nate's offence in the second, so that when he needed a rest, he was less likely to be left in the pocket with somebody who fuckin' loves being in the pocket.

To be fair, Conor sold about 4.2 million PPV buys in 2016, and the UFC did a total of 3.5 million PPV buys in 2017 (not counting the boxing match). The Conor brand is bigger than the UFC brand, they are going to have to pay him a poo poo ton to come back.

He's always been hittable especially early on, but the guys at 170 hit a hell of a lot harder than the ones at 155. He's always said he needs to get hit a few times to wake up and really get into the game. But I do think he definitely ate a bunch of shots against Yancy that he didn't need to.

He seemed to be tidying that up. The Cote fight especially, he showed a much better ability to gameplan and nullify offence.

But then, two fights later he and Brown just took turns belting each other.

I feel confident that I actually do. I feel pretty confident that the UFC didn't turn down a genuine offer from their most popular fighter to fight on a card that, as it stands, will do about three buys. I feel pretty confident that a guy who used to kill himself to get to 145 didn't suddenly, genuinely offer to do so on short notice more than two years after he last fought at that weight. Especially to fight someone that he has assiduously avoided calling out in the last five years, despite calling out literally everyone else.

We may have experienced Ryan Bader, UFC champion, a second Machida reign, and then seen Gus take over the division. It's possible that without a big hype target that DC may have stayed at HW.

Nah, Bader's exactly the sort of stupid to try and stand with Shogun to prove he's more than a wrestler, only for Shogun to punch his head off in a cool but slightly awkward way. As evidence, I present his Machida gameplan: jumping, chin up, at a really good counterpuncher.
