    Can Glassquez still making excuses

    https://www.mmafighting.com/2019/4/5/18291108/javier-mendez-gives-update-on-status-of-cain-velasquezs-mma-career From his manager Javier Mendez... “[Velasquez] wasn’t getting around too well (after the fight),” Mendez said. “But the screwed up [part] about that whole thing, originally when I saw the fight, I kept having to replay it, replay it, and I never saw what the hell happened. And I was thinking, well, what the hell? It’s just his knee gave out, right? And of course his knee gave out, right? “But then it wasn’t until I was home and he leaves me a text message and he goes, ‘I was fine until he hammerfisted me in the back of the head.’ And I’m like, what? What are you talking about, hammerfist? So I replayed the goddamn video and the very first strike that was hit was an illegal shot right behind the back of the head, when he shot in. And he said that dazed him a teeny bit and that’s what started this whole sequence, and nobody ever saw it. It was an illegal shot. If the ref would’ve caught it, it would’ve been a no contest. “But he didn’t catch it. Hell, I didn’t catch it and I watched it over and over again. I’d made up in my mind what I thought it was — and it wasn’t. I was completely wrong. … It was one of those weird freak accidents, man. Whether intentional or not, I don’t know. All I know is that he got a hell of a shot. When you slow it down and you watch it, it was a clear shot: Illegal, back of the head. And nobody talks about that because it’s over, it’s done.” So, what is it now? Ngannou never hit you at all and your knee just gave out, or he blasted you with an illegal shot? When can you accept the fact that you got hit with a short uppercut and finished?

    How Many Fights Do You Think Dave Branch Has Left?

    I think he'll get one more fight. If he loses that one, he's gone. However, I like the fact that this "high level Renzo Gracie blackbelt" is getting schooled on the ground. Wrestling top control + submissions & GnP >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> BJJ.

    Surprise, surprise, check out Conors tweets.

    I'm too lazy to read this entire thread, but as far as the tweets go, the only objectionable one is from (surprise!) Ali Abdelaziz. Here's the text: Talking ****, this guy is insulting someone’s wife and making fun of her religion and belief. He doesn’t realize he’s insulting 1.5 billon Muslims. Religion and family is a no no. You’re ****ed Connor, let’s see what the media is going to say now. He’s a rapist, and a ****. Now, here's the problem with that. Conor insulted Khabib and his wife, and indirectly insulted his culture and religion. He did not, however, insult every Muslim in the planet. Every part of the Islamic world has its own take on the religion, and the veil isn't a universal part of Islam (it's also used in other religions besides Islam). It could be their take on the religion, it could be part of the Dagestani culture, it could be whatever. However, for Ali to take it a step further, making a false claim that Conor insulted "1.5 billion Muslims", then later make a thinly veiled threat of "you're f****** Connor" has clear implications. Given the fact that Islam is the only major world religion that effectively stifles criticism through credible threats (and acts) of brutality and violence, this can reasonably be taken as a threat. We've seen what happens when someone gets a target on them because they "insulted Islam" or some such nonsense (think Theo Van Gogh, Molly Norris, Charlie Hebdo, etc). This is a twitter war between two meatheads named Conor Macgregor and Khabib Nurmagamedov. Don't make it about anything else, like Ali tried to do. The guy really is a rat.

    Can Glassquez still making excuses

    True. It's Javier's words, and while he does claim that Cain was the one who brought up the "illegal hammerfist" excuse, we have yet to hear it straight from the horse's mouth. Still, it's disappointing to see how many nozzles are buying this excuse. Fortunately, the alphas here on the UFC fight club free forum know better.
  5. David Branch is a "high level Renzo Gracie BJJ black belt"!!!
  6. I don't know... Michael Johnson still seemed with it to me... early stoppage?
  7. Agree with King_Can, but I think most UFC matchmakers have thrown in the towel, so to speak. They're just "whatever, this will do" most of the time. WME doesn't care and just wants to see a return on their investment... or perhaps at this point they just want to minimize their losses. Still, not a bad fight. I certainly don't think it will go down like the first. The last time the UFC was here in Minneapolis, Travis Browne got KTFO by Bigfoot.

    Jones/Santos and Nunes/Holm Agreed to for UFC 239

    I'm actually looking forward to Nunes vs. Holm. Holly should get as many title shots as she wants.
  9. MMA math doesn't work, but Pettis >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Woodley.
  10. That last punch was after the bell, but nobody really cares.
  11. I'm still butthurt about Maycee Barber winning again. What is going on now? I see two guys with beards in an embrace...

    Masvidal and Edwards were just fighting backstage.

    https://www.mmafighting.com/2019/3/22/18272420/fabian-edwards-on-jorge-masvidal-if-i-see-that-man-again-hes-f-cked Leon Edwards' brother is now trying to talk trash: “Like you seen in the video, my brother was walking by and he said to him, ‘July the 7th,’ Masvidal said, ‘maybe,’ and that was it, there was nothing really and truly; there was no sh*t talking. There was no instigating, [Leon] was trying to make a fight happen.” “The thing that pissed me off about it was the way he walked over. He walked over calm; hands behind his back…and then he starts throwing punches knowing well that security was going to jump on it. I tried to smash his head in myself, but we had about 100 security guards between us, so I couldn’t get my hands on him." “If I see that man again he’s f*cked. I probably won’t see him in the cage because he’s a different weight class to me, but if I see him outside I’m smashing him. It’s personal now.”

    The only real way to solve this "who was a better champ" debate is to have an openweight bout between Woodley and Mighty Mouse.

    I wonder substance they found. I hope it's not something lame like an estrogen blocker and something cool like winstrol or nandrolone.
  15. I support the UFC doing whatever it needs to do to combat illegal streaming of its events. I don't know if this will help, but I hope it does. The only thing I hate more than people who watch illegal strams of events are those who who watch illegal strams then lie about it and act like they don't. The absolute worst people are those who claim to hate illegal streaming, yet watch strams themselves, and worst of all, send links of said illegal strams to others.
  16. I hope Maycee Barber loses to JJ Aldrich. The UFC's hype machine is behind Barber and it's annoying - she's not that hot, and her acting is worse than Brett Favre. Aldrich has an amazing story, making Barber seem like she had a golden spoon in comparison. If Barber does win, I hope they push her quickly to a title shot so she can get wrecked by Valentina.
  17. Africa. It's an untapped market, provided you go to the right countries. Obviously there isn't going to be a "UFC Fight Night Mogadishu" anytime soon. Top would be Nairobi, Kenya, Johannesburg, South Africa, Accra, Ghana, and maybe Gaborone, Botswana.
  18. Whoa dude, that's almost as bad as when I went full retard talking about Cormier. Ali is a POS, but... ...anyway, they want a striker who won't be able to stop Usman's humping offense. Colby doesn't fit the bill

    Sorry man, I'm ride or die Karyn Bryant. I'd let blondie get run over by a truck before I'd disrespect the greatest mma journalist of all time.

    Was that Karyn or that blonde broad they have... Laura Skanko or something?

    Askren just twitted that Masvidal picked a fight with Edwards so he wouldn't have to fight him. Don't care. I think they should still make Askren fight Till.
  22. Masvidal should KTFO Marc Goddard next.
