Yeah that’s true but I feel like I remember “bigger” fights than the main being earlier due to the whole weight thing.

I personally always found it a little silly 🤷🏻‍♂️

I thought that it was strange to have the MW fight headlining until I realized it's probably because the LHW is for a vacant belt, so no reigning champ is walking out for that one.

Like a snail that melteth away into slime, they shall be taken away; like a dead-born child, they shall not see the sun.

i think izzy vs. costa will be a really good fight whatever happens. it's happening in a smaller cage too which has to favour costa since he likes corralling people to the fence and beating the snot out of them.

i thought the Fight Island cage was the 30' diameter they usually run and not the WEC-spec 25' diameter at the Apex

(does anyone have that diagram of the different promotion's cage sizes and fighting areas? it was like an overlay style which showed that Bellator's circular cage is gigantic compared to the Apex octagon)

He came to Helena’s first Fight Force card as a guest. Drove over from Idaho, joked that he wanted to buy land by the town of Jens, MT when he saw it from the highway. Super nice guy

Jens Pulver also streams on twitch just about every day. He's pretty interactive with chat too.

Oh yeah that’s true

I think costas nose is going to get REALLY hosed up in later rounds. I don’t know that Izzy has enough to put him down earlier, and he’s obviously tough as gently caress. I think it’s gonna be a real grind of a fight, like zhang and Joanna.

I think we’re gonna see just how good Izzy is at his game one way or another

UFC 232 Main - Jones vs Gustaffson 2 (vacant title); Comain Nunes vs Cyborg
UFC 196 Main - McGregor vs Diaz (non-title); Comain Holm vs Tate
UFC 194 Main - McGregor vs Aldo; Comain Weidman vs Rockhold
UFC 189 Main - McGregor vs Mendes (interim title, too); Comain Lawler vs MacDonald
UFC 169 Main - Barao vs Faber; Comain Aldo vs Lamas

Riddell's a kiwi. He's a tough, experienced, march-forward kickboxer and his fight vs Mullarkey was a cracker.

I remember on one of those Auskiwi cards that tere was a match that had a veteran kickboxer who I had never heard of, but who the crowd was going crazy for. Was that him?

If you haven't seen (or don't remember) Riddell / Mullarkey then I emplore you to see it for your own enjoyment From Mullarkey's point of view in particular, it is an exercise in just how much damage one man can both give and take in a 15 minute period. I am interested to see what Riddell does with his career off of the back of it.
