This low effort GDT is brought to you by flies that keep loving with me exclusively when I'm trying to eat or concentrate on an effortpost

Come talk about fights.

edit: I waited until the actual event start time to post it just in case someone was working on something high effort, if someone actually is and they're just slightly late or something, I'll lock mine.

I'm sure they're building a new venue. Also LOL at not liking the St Regis, Four Seasons or Ritz Abu Dhabi.

The actual problem is that UFC 242 was in Septmeber, while they're trying to hold these events in July, it's gonna be 110 degrees outside and I don't think their AC systems are gonna keep up.

No, that's just what it seemed like because the AC couldn't keep up, it was a low of 88 and a high of 101 in Abu Dhabi that day.

No worries, now that tonight's card is over let me add some details to this.

Before that event, that venue was used for some sort of music show, I wanna say Red Hot Chili Peppers or something, so there was already an AC system installed, as UFC 242 was coming up they realized that system wasn't gonna hold up so they went to install a new one but weren't able to complete it fast enough for it to get "broken in" properly, which some of the AC technicians were saying would normally take about 3 weeks, but they had less than 1 week to go, that's why the new system couldn't keep up.

How can anyone not love Amanda Nunes she is so sweet and it's impossible to not feel happy for her. Her reign has to come to an end eventually and it'll be a sad day when it does.

That said, I was rolling my eyes at the commentary the whole time last night at their comments at Spencee. Sure none of it was a lie but god drat. Spencer definitely deserves special recognition for surviving 25 minutes (barely) with cyborg and nunes each. Dumped too many points in her defense build with nothing else left over lol

I would agree with this, but for some reason she supports (supported?) Bolsonaro.

Which is a real kick in the knackers when you just wanted to like a cool gay chick who always looks really happy to have the job she has and is also really good at it

Raphael Assuncao has been fighting in the UFC for a decade and has been top ten nearly the entire time and is earning less than than $80k to co-main event a pay-per-view against a former world champion.

I'm definitely not an expert on Brazilian politics or Brazil in general, but is it possible that as an openly gay woman in Brazil she doesn't feel safe not supporting him?

Look if you want to support only completely wholesome people in fighting you would be supporting only Angela Hill, Roxy, Holloway, and Poirer. You can appreciate a fighter, their craft, and their personality while also acknowledging they hold problematic views. They aren't your friends (for the most part some goons actually know fighters), so you don't have to fear guilt by association for lovely views.

When your argument is ‘how can you hate someone when their personality is so sweet’ and then you go on to argue that you should divorce their opinions from their craft then YOU must. be. a. goon.

gently caress Nunes to hell. Supporting the guy who threatens to burn down the rainforest (one of his tamer threats) makes you a loving rear end in a top hat

You’re right. Because other fighters have been linked to worse people it’s actually okay to support fascism. Carry on
