  2. Undoubtedly, indisputably true!
  3. He's neither a prospect or a future contender at this point. He's just a guy in the middle of the pack who is good enough to be in the top 10 but can't work his way up to a title shot. A gatekeeper, in other words.

    Not all Heroes wear Capes - Colby Covington

    My guess is that Woodley will duck. Hopefully I'm wrong.
  5. I hope the rest of the night gives us a bunch of 29-28 unanimous decisions that are neither decisive nor controversial.

    MTP vs. Chuckie Olives is probably the FOTY.

    I hope MTP crushes Olivera. Charles Olivera is just one of those fighters I can't stand and I don't know why. Something about him just rustles me beyond measure and I want to see his smug face smashed in.
  7. At least she'll be a champ-champ who actually defends both titles.
  8. That meaty-thighs Dumont chick just fell over due to exhaustion more than the punch from Anderson.
  9. How dare you? This likely determines the next women's featherweight contender! This is high level WMMA right here.
  10. Given his result tonight, I bet he wishes he'd withdrawn.
  11. I wonder if the 'cramps' he was experiencing during the cut was just his body saying "this isn't a real division and I'm not going to let you fight here."
  12. Precisely. MMA seems to be in a bit of a lull overall, or at least a plateau. It's not going gangbusters like it was ten years ago. It wasn't long ago that we'd have 30+ page PPV threads. I still read the PPV threads, but there's so little going on that I usually don't bother commenting more than once or twice, if at all. On the Diego situation, I can't blame the guy for taking the easy W. Someone pointed out that his last contract was 103k to show, 103k to win. If taking that route was my only shot at getting an extra hundred grand, you'd better believe I'd take it - regardless of whether or not that made me look like a fool. I get tired of the schlock on MMA sites like this headline: Diego Sanchez might have played the system in DQ, but his win is earned in blood. Pure nonsense. Again, I'm not going to fault Diego for making that choice, but let's be real. He did not "earn" that win in any way, shape or form. He clearly saw a way out of a fight he was losing badly, and made a shrewd financial/career calculation. It's not his fault he got blasted with an illegal shot, but he did take advantage of the rules by lying to the ref that he couldn't see and couldn't continue - of course once he realized (he actually asked the ref for pete's sake) he'd get the win. One could even argue Diego cheated by lying about being able to continue, but that's impossible to prove, even if it seems obvious. Of course the barrier to entry for being an MMA journalist is so low as to be almost non-existent, so you have to expect that kind of writing on MMA sites.

    Valiant attempt by Reyes but...

    Reyes should have won the fight according to a fair application of the scoring system currently in place. In a sport constantly under siege by incompetent judging and inconsistent officiating, it's hardly the worst decision we've seen. However, it doesn't change the fact that the decision rendered last night was the wrong one. The idea "in order to beat the champ, you need to BEAT the champ" may sound intriguing, it has never been more than a myth. Nothing in the rule book or the scoring metrics imply that a current champion is due a certain amount of deference due to his or her status as a title holder. A title fight is supposed to be scored the same as any other, and Reyes should have won accordingly. It is what it is. Jones will never concede the fact that he truly lost his belt last night and the sport will move on to the next big story.

    UFC 247: Jones vs. Reyes

    It's an interesting night when Valentina goes out and puts on a good performance (that Chookagian girl can really take a pounding) and gets a finish while the LHW champ runs and gets a gift decision.
