    Did you watch it, Wizzy?
    I think Masvidal can take Usman if they fight again. He had zero time to prepare and Usman is a machine. Still he can’t stand with Masvidal for 5 rounds and if Jorge has a full camp training how to keep Usman at distance and off the ground I think he can knock him out.
    Loved seeing Rose win again. UFC needs a Rose comeback.
    Aldo fought better than I thought but the game has moved past him. It’s so weird that Aldo was only 28 and was on an 18-0 10 year undefeated streak when he fought Conor. He was in his prime and considered the pound-for-puns best cage fighter in the world. Conor knocked him out in 10 seconds...
    And Aldo has lost 5 times since. He’s still tough but NOTHING like he was before Conor. That fight changed everything.

    I did watch.

    Something I've heard since getting into MMA/UFC is that once you get knocked out the first time it changes you as a fighter and you're more prone to knockouts.\
    I was never a fan of Aldo and although I recognize his talent, like you said, the game has passed him. There are better fighters coming into the world of MMA all the time. Jose's time is over. Unless he can adapt, but at 33 years old I don't see that happening.


    I was sad to see the results. It wasn't as good a card as I hoped it would be, they were great matchups. But like you said(again), Masvidal had zero prep time. I'd like to see that fight with Masvidal at full strength.


    I was a bit disappointed with the event overall but that's just from a "I want to see people beat the shit out of each other non-stop and the person I want to win, win!" perspective.
    As a fan, there was potential on the card. But I think it was rushed. Especially the Usman/Masvidal fight. He has to get a rematch.

    Yeah I felt the same way. It was an epic card on paper, which it why it sold 1.3 million PPVs. A huge number for the UFC, but it didn’t really live up to the hype. The rematch with Max and Volk was exactly like the first one with the exact result. The main event was exciting but Masvidal just didn’t have enough time to prep. I was glad Rose won her rematch with Andrade but I’m not sure I agree with the decision.

    Be honest.
    Who here is going to watch Mike Tyson fight Roy Jones Jr? I will, though I’m a tiny bit ashamed of how excited I am to see Tyson again.

    I agree. I don’t see how RJJ can stay away from Tyson at 51. No way he has the quickness to stick and move like that anymore. Tyson looks like he can still do that same bob/weave/slip shit and throw bombs like he always did, at least for a couple of rounds.
    I don’t see RJJ surviving 2 rounds with Tyson.

    Khabib retired in the ring today after easily finishing Justin Gaethje. Hardly broke a sweat.
    He always said he wanted to get to 30-0 then hang it up, but he called it quits at 29-0. Anyone else I would say he’ll come back for a superfight but Khabib doesn’t play games. His dad died, who had always been his trainer, and he said he seriously considered quitting then but decided to give Justin his chance. It wasn’t close.
    Khabib is the greatest MMA fighter of all time. Most dominant champion and cage fighter to ever do it.

    I watched that card just for the Khabib/Justin(cant spell his last name from memory) fight.

    I didn't think Justin was gonna win, but the punches he was landing that Khabib was just eating were crazy to see. Khabib's wrestling is unmatched by anyone else, and apparently his chin is pretty damn strong too. I will miss watching him fight.

    I would like to respectfully disagree.

    Khabib never lost, that's true, but 10-15 of his wins are total bums. He beat a lot of huge names in the division but he didn't beat them all (Ferguson for example). He ducked Tony several times, and I'm not sure why, as much as I love Tony I don't think he could have handled Khabib anyway.

    He has 4 title defenses, total, ever. Jones has 15. FIF.TEEN.

    he MIGHT be the best Lightweight of all time.. and he did earn my respect with this last fight for the first time. I am not knocking him down, please don't think that (because last year I was knocking him down, i hated the guy) but the MMA goat? I strongly disagree with this. I mean, McGregor had multiple titles at once at lightweight. (but I understand most of McGregors success is just him being a polarizing figure, i don't believe he had more than 1 title defense.)

    I also don't agree with them moving him up to #1 PfP. I suppose, with all the controversy with Jones that it is appropriate at the moment.. but if JJ does fight at heavy weight and wins that belt, forget about it. He's already probably the greatest of all time, the only reason it's even a debate is because he's a fucking idiot who can't keep himself out of trouble.
