kinda feel like you're biased towards joanna tbh
I think it's fair you saw her winning round 5.

I admit I am definitely biased towards Joanna I guess I just did not really like Rose's hype train.

Anyways, I actually think Al have a chance, even more than Halloway.

Iaquinta is just trying to explode, but Khabib is too experienced and knows hows to use his weight well. Look at the way he sprawls on his toes, it drives a TON of weight for Iaquinta to carry.

Iaquinta is probably gassed and will just try to swing for the fences now.

Edit: ALWAYS on the toe and driving pressure. That tiny difference makes a ton of difference for the person on the bottom. Khabib is too much better of a grappler if Iaquinta can't land the KO.

Khabib gonna eat a lot of shots fighting like this against a better fighter...

Even the take down attempts...he ducks his heads going in really telegraphed, I can see Conor timber him honestly

He's getting visibly frustrated by Iaquinta

Granted he is winning by a landslide.

while getting majorly exposed in the process

if iaquinta loses a decision, IMO he comes off looking great.


I really don't get how those people in charge of rankings see him as #11, there's some bias going around.

This is huge loss for UFC. Khabib loses stock, Conor goes to jail, Ferguson sits out.

Khabib is playing with fire now, trying to bait with his chin. Agree with Rogan 100%, that is amateur shit.

Yea, although I am sure he has other things in his arsenal, once the single didn't work anymore, it did not seem like he had other plans to take the fight down when his corner repeatedly called for takedowns. I am not sure if its a mental thing because he's so used to dominating people, but I really didn't like what I saw.

Against someone like Conor, you probably would have to have plan B's and adjustments instead of ducking for that diving single over and over.

agreed 100%


granted, conor is not the grappler iaquinta is, but he has ko power and a much longer reach + generally better at stand up.

Zabit vs Bochniak was very decent, looking forward to see him develop.

Conor won't grapple as well as Iaquinta and Khabib won't ease off the gas vs Conor. He played it safe because let's be honest, it'd be pretty embarrassing to lose to a lucky punch. At least that's what I think - he played safe vs an opponent he hasn't watched much tape on.

Khabib does need to work on his defense. His chin is permanently exposed - sure, he can probably take some shots but every chin cracks. He also leans back too much, a better striker will use that to get him off balance and tee off. But overall, I think Khabib did a bit of a Usman/Hendricks performance.

Iaquinta barely got any punches in some rounds, it's conceivable. Not like Khabib did anything extraordinary in rounds 3 and 4 other than constant jabs without much power but he clearly won all rounds.

Certainly not Khabib's best performance today but it got the job done. I was pleasantly surprised by Iaquinta's TDD later in the fight.



As for Rose vs Joanna, I saw it as a 48-47. He saved herself for the fifth round and Joanna couldn't keep up with her there imo. 49-46 is a bad joke, Joanna was tearing her up with leg kicks in rounds 3 and 4.
