Bout to win a world title via leg kicks. 

LOL

You're downplaying Volks performance big time. He's landed the hands to Maxs grill just as much as the kicks to the legs. Very impressive performance. He matched Maxs furious pace step for step.

I pretty much missed the entire fight due to an argument with a friend.

All I saw was Volk hugging at the end to assure a victory possibly instead of putting a stamp on it.

It is what it is.

Someone was confused at my reaction.

I said I literally missed 99% of the fight.

All I saw was Volk hugging at the end, instead of trying to stamp his victory in (If it was a victory, which it turned out to be.)

How can you possibly be confused by that?

I made it clear. Jesus.

Fans not happen with leg kicks ftw

Max never got going.

48-47 is fair but 50-45? naw

Based on the commentary I heard after the fact, all I can say is 50-45 does sound like a huge stretch.

I of course missed everything but the end so I can't really judge.

Rogan needs to quit this ‘Max is the greatest FW of all time’ nonsense 

I do hope he gets Max's balls out of his mouth now.

I say that as a fan of Max.

Alright for this match, no bias in this post.

I legitimately do not know who to pick here.

I don't really like either guy.

But I have to say this, I'll break it down in sections

 

Striking

Covington - Volume Striking Advantage

Usman - Power Striking Advantage

 

Wrestling

Offense - Even 

Defense - Usman (Covington was taken down a few times by RDA, Usman has never been taken down)

 

Jiu-Jitsu

Even. Both their lone career loses are by submission.

 

Cardio

Covington - He's gone 5 rounds multiple times with no issue whatsoever, Usman on the other hand definitely slowed down a bit in the Woodley fight.

 

 

This is my assessment at least.

I can still remember the first time I watched MMA too...

48-47 and acting like Max got KO in 13 secs.

Sit this 1 out.

I will admit, Covington does get brownie points with me for Kurt Angle's theme.

Simply cause Kurt Angle was my favorite Pro Wrassler of all time.
