kelvin is legit. love that kid. he is so talented but ffs get your act together and make weight u fool. You cannot waste that much talent. He has a legit title winning potential at welterweight and is possibly a top 6 - 8 middleweight too. He lit up tim kennedy so bad lmao. he beat the crap out of him.

I am just pointing out that Pettis trying to cut weight and go to a lower weight class doesnt make him a pussy. Almost no fighter in UFC fights at their walking weight. Each of them tries to cut the maximum possible to ensure they have a size advantage when they fight. Pettis tried to do the same but he couldnt make it. Does it make him a pussy because he started off at 155?

And how many really good fighters have gone down weight classes because they couldnt take the class they initially started off with? Machida, Nate, Rashad(?)? Machida was a champion as well, right?

take tyron wooldey for example. that dude i swear is bigger than most middleweights. he is probably bigger than even weidman and rockhold. dude weighs 205 lbs off season. lean. he cuts down to 170. Probably juicing but then almost the entire roster in mma are on some kind of ped's anyway. Most top fighters do not fight at their actual weight. They always cut weight to have a strength advantage.

In Az's defense, Pettis has acted like a child anytime he wasn't given what he wanted in terms of title shots. Kind of glad he lost.

I was glad Matt Brown was KTFO, I personally think he talks too much as well.

It was a shame Badr Hari got injured, would like to see him and Rico again sometimes down the line.

Can connor beat tyron? What do you guys think? Tyron has like a 20-30 lbs weight advantage though. Similar reach. Connor has much better boxing and woodley is susceptible to getting lit up by very technical fighters. See rory fight for example. I am a big woodley fan but i think connor can give him a good fight. But he wont be able to take his overhand though.

More interested in seeing him defending the LW title before this one. But for the sake of argument, Woodley has a lot better wrestling than Alvarez and even Diaz.

I just can't bring myself to give a fuck about WMMA. Is Ronda Rousey that big of a star over there? Feels like she and WMMA in general is being so hyped by MMA-media and UFC.

I don't think people care about Ronda as much after she lost, sulked, and took some time off to duck Holly.

In general UFC is a hype machine.

It's not just UFC, or just about Ronda. It's MMA-media hyping WMMA in general.

I mean, I don't mind it, especially if a lot of people are interested. Just curious.

I can't watch the WMMA it's horrible, Joanna is good to watch though, even though nobody can touch her in that weight class. Should be separate tbh

Although they'll be more now with another weight class

There's probably some interest among fans, there must be. I can't watch it either, it's simply low quality fighting (Holms performance vs Ronda was great though), and they're so weak. I can barely watch flyweight.

I'm happy for the ladies though, and it's good that younger girls get to watch these girls make it to this level. Rather have them watching MMA fighters than the Kardashians.

And of course, UFC uses WMMA to help the sport get more accepted and more mainstream.

I don't care if them have more divisions, I don't have a problem with WMMA existing in UFC. I was just curious how much interest there is for it from the public.

It's probably 50% like it, 50% don't. But yeah I agree it's good for the youngsters to watch instead of shit like the kardashians.

I'd just be pissed if i'm paying $60 for an event & have to sit through the women in the middle of the card. Some of the mens i'm not entirely interested in, let alone less talented females.

yeah i get it

but that's when you stop paying $60 for the events. if enough people do that then UFC will reconsider, but apparently people are buying the cards despite (or because?) of the women.

i honestly have not idea, i just know that i have close to zero interest.

This is true and my biggest problem with WMMA. Most of the women are really one-dimensional or painfully "average" (bad) at everything. The level of grappling displayed is really sloppy, other than maybe Ronda and a couple of top level fighters.

This is also how I feel about heavyweights outside of the top 5 as well. Guys like Ben Rothwell or Mark Hunt. I understand people are excited by their "style" but it is too one-dimensional for me.
