    Korean Zombie vs Brian Ortega in Mexico City (Unconfirmed)

    I'm in. That weed smoking juicehead seems to find a way to win more often than not.

    Herb Dean lol is the New M yamasaki

    I'll always love Rosenthal for doing the right thing in the Carwin/Brock fight. I can't hate.

    RIP Ben Askren's brain, career and bandwagon

    I agree. I also think Dana has softened a bit on Askren now that he's learned that even with the UFC and his years of trash talking, Askren is still a company man. He'll take any fight and doesn't play games behind the scenes (thanks for the info Chael). Since he slurps the corporate hog as well as anyone, Dana just can't muster the same hatred that he once did for the guy.
  4. This card was such a hit that the discussion thread didn't even make four full pages... and only about 2.5 of those were actually about the fights (a generous estimate). De Random is really a draw I guess.
  5. We're down to the last few fights on the main card and this discussion thread is only two pages. 😆 To be fair, I just tuned in.

    Chad Mendes retiring

    He did, but he said he wanted to take some time to think about it and make sure he was making the right decision. ...which makes sense, but then why retire on the spot in the octagon if you're not 100% sure? I suppose it doesn't really mean anything, as it seems like half of the guys who retire eventually come back and fight again.

    Askren is going to make this look easy, folks.

    I admit I do respect Askren for facing media (he did a 20+ minute interview for Ariel already) after a loss like that rather than burying his head in the sand.

    Jones just lost to a 1 Legged MW LOL

    When Santos' camp came out and said he had torn every ligament in his knee, I was thinking "okay, that's just his camp talking." However... https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mma/2019/07/08/thiago-santos-knee-injury-jon-jones-ufc-239/39665863/ Monday, an MRI revealed a torn ACL, MCL and PCL on Santos' left knee as well as a meniscus tear. Doctors suspect he may also have reinjured his right knee, which was surgically operated on prior... Anyone with even a modicum of knowledge about knee injuries knows how serious that is. Your average Joe is in rough shape with just a partially torn ACL. I'm surprised that he could even stand with a complex multiligament knee injury like that. He deserves respect for just being able to tolerate that kind of injury and still compete, regardless of how well he actually performed. I'm beyond 100% convinced he would've won without the injury. How he could even put weight on that leg is beyond me.
  9. I'm not a huge Usman fan, but I have a hard time seeing him slowly plodding towards someone, arms stretched out as if for an embrace. His entrances are at least a little cleaner than that, so it will be much more difficult for Masvidal to feed him the MGM Grand Buffet.

    Jorge's comments at the post-fight presser are hilarious. "There is no beef. He's just some idiot I don't like." "His head is a magnet for crotches." 🤣

    I would call Dana a moron but I always have to remind myself that he's a promoter. A pompous knob for sure, but a successful promoter who is always going to guide the narrative in a way most beneficial ($$$$$) to himself.

    Stick to modeling

    I agree. Like, actually agree 100% in all honestly. Luke is a beast of a grappler (two IBJJF gold medals) and had an incredible run in both Strikeforce and the UFC. After getting melted by TRT-fueled Belfort, he had a great winning streak that saw him take the title off of Weidman. But, all fighters have an expiration date and I think he's met his. Time to hang it up. EDIT: Or go to Bellator and become champion there

    I actually had Santos winning the fight, albeit it wasn't much of one. Jones looked terrible - I don't believe I'd ever seen him perform worse. It really does make you wonder what Santos would have done tonight had that injury not occurred.

    Just got back from the sports bar and had to come check out the forum... this thread in particular. I'm happy with the result, particularly in the manner that it happened, but would not have been surprised at all had Ben humped Jorge to a decision. Watching the replay, it looks like Ben was shooting for the absolute laziest takedown ever right before he got blasted with a perfectly aimed knee.
