What a shite main event, the level of competition in Cyborg division is similar to what Ronda experienced. (probably worse)
T-city BOOM.. man the guy is awesome, although i hated seeing Frankie get k.o'ed like that.

Rest of the main card was MEH.

It's a little bit of both.

Cyborg is actually legit good. Ronda was a noob in a time when other people were also noobs. If you watched her fight with Camouche, she went that head lock on the ground and let Carmouche take her back and ended up in a face choke. That shows that she was still transitioning into MMA or even BJJ grappling. That's one of the moves they teach in MMA or BJJ self defense very early on. I am not saying Ronda wasn't good or she didn't have that knowledge, but she was still transitioning and learning the "MMA game", she just was way ahead of others in terms of learning curve.


Cyborg has been immersed in MMA and I don't see any of these women beating her anytime soon.

I think nunes can finish cyborg but I would still bet on cyborg.

Most likely you are right, she fights like someone that actually lives and breathes MMA. Her opponents on the other hand, look like they took 3 classes and decided stepping in a ring would be a good idea.

So Mike Perry and his girl went separate ways. So we might actually see Perry with a good camp and corner?

travis browne is training to become a pro wrestler.

browne has the attributes to become successful at it...werdum does not.

Werdum is mentally done from fighting IMO. I don't see him making another push at the title.

After the Volkov fight it was pretty obvious he's a gatekeeper at best at this point of his career. No shame really, he had a great career and gave Cain a loss.

Anyone else getting really hyped for UFC 223? Obviously Khabib and Ferg are the main attraction, but this card is full with interesting fights. But yeah, whoever wins out of Khabib or Ferg is in pole position to become UFC LW GOAT.

Even before that, he seemed like he was always clowning and not serious about improving his skills.

He got pretty far with it tough so I gotta give him that and he has that win over Cain which is pretty beastly. He really looked completely outmatched in his last fight imo but my understanding of BJJ is very limited so you probably have a better read on that anyway.

His betting odds are pretty good from a gamblers perspective. I think Tony is good but I don't think his style is very good Khabib. I don't care how good his game off his back is, you can't let Khabib get you down and keep dominant top position imo.

i think this will boil down to who got the best cardio.

the first two-three rounds will probably be khabib chasing ferguson around and taking him down. but will khabib be able to keep the same pace against someone with ferguson's quality and cardio?

also underestimating jiu-jitsu have proved to be a mistake many times. there
could very well be a Silva-Sonnen 1 scenario here.

Just finished watching AJ vs Parker, man that was some fine boxing. The hand work, head work, foot work, is miles better than anything i have seen from a MMA HW fighter.

P.S: i'm not saying he would beat Stipe in a MMA fight or some absurd shite like that.
