To me this is where mma shines it's best by far. Nothing quite like a back n forth 5 round slugfest with kickboxing, wrestling and bjj mixed beautifully all throughout.

Unfortunately I cannot seem to recall the last time we actually had one of these.

Stipe vs JDS 2 was supposed to be one for the books, until stipe put him away early.

Struve/Volkov looked like it was shaping up to be one, until struve's chin gave out again.

Weidman/Kelvin was supposed to be a great one, until Weidman put an end to his night in devastating fashion.

Jones/DC 2 was expected to be, then Jones scored his first ko win.

Gus/Jones 2 was just about made but then Jones got popped for roids again. **** you Jon.


Nunes/Valentina 2 and Romero/Whittaker are the only recent ones that even come close but both of those were very low action timid fights. Not wars at all.

On the horizon I could really see Kevin Lee/Ferguson being a huge dogfight if Kevin's chin manages to hold up. Maybe even Rockhold/Branch? Gsp/Bisping?

Rockhold laid the pipe to Weidman the can. Him and lovato can compare notes now

Good thread m8

 

But were you really expecting a war on Stipe vs JDS 2 ? I was expecting a pretty quick fight regardless of the result.

 

Nunes vs Valentina II ? Hmm I think we cant really call that a war either .. just my opinion.

 

I agree with everything else.

 

I can see Ferg vs Lee being a 5 round war

Not sure i think either MTP submits Tony within 2 rounds or get pieced up inside 2/3rounds.

Well of course did you see the first fight? Awesome 5 round battle.

I honestly still can't recall the last one we've had

Lawler vs Condit maybe??

Could also happen although I really don't see Kevin being able to bully Tony on the ground

There reason why I didnt except a battle on that one was because we had 2 fighters in two completely directions: one going downhill and warned out (JDS) and another one on his peek and totally improved (Stipe).

 

But yeah I see your point

Hunt vs Lewis was a terrible ugly fight that ended in the 3rd round.

Romero Whittaker was okay buy not very much action, both guys fighting to not get tired. Very very forgettable fight

You must have missed the parts of the fight where Romero was holding Whittaker in place against the cage. Brutal stuff.
