looking through the UFC roster and i'm just thinking who are these people??

i think it's just gonna get worse, if UFC don't start paying these athletes what they're worth. they're simply gonna continue choosing other sports.

you are ******ed mb. ive watched every ufc for 3 or so years i think, if you dont like it? youre obviously a gay man

well it's the last 2-3 years it's started getting shitty... AKA when they decided to make it mainstream for real (they'd been working towards it for the last 10-12 years)

you sound like Dana speaking

even that part of the game has become worse. much worse

i'm no technical and tactical connoisseur, I also love fights where they fuck each other up and just leave it all in there. but it's all about the level of fighters whether it's technical, tactical or just bleed. the level is low.

It's just there are far too many events, one ppv per month and a stacked card would be infinitely better, bit like football with far too many games and only getting worse.

Less is always more

Yeah the gazillion events is the main reason I've lost interest

Not hating on ufc, I get why they're doing it, there's money to be made. But will it holds in the long run?

I think there's enough just bleed casuals to keep them in the game.

His got some funny one liners ill give him that. Also does anyone have somewhere with decent links that they watch ppv events on? Paying 70 dollars per event is kinda ridiculous.

Colby is a wrestling type now? He doesn't have much power, but his stand up game is great.

If he didn't clown around all the time, there would be much more respect for his fighting game.

He looks so fucking big. and his striking is so clean and precise. People keep accrediting his knockouts to his incredible power, but his precision is more impressive to me. Technique is so refined that he can knock you out with an elbow, a hook, or a knee. His takedown is sus though any high level grappler will give him problems but all the strikers in the division are fucked.

Nunes...wtf...

Maybe she's injured...sick?

WTF was that taken down? Hooks weren't even in. Didn't even look completely under the chin. Just gave up. Just bizarre.

Good for Pena. I remember she was really hyped as the next big thing when she wiped out Ronda's horsemen before injuries and some poor performance derailed her.

Her head movement was Rousey-esque

Just standing there trading. Maybe she bought into the idea she’s goat?

But man that RNC at the end was so weak

Rousey-esque is the perfect way to describe it. Pena's stand-up wasn't even that good.

Just strange. Not saying that she did, but got the feeling like she was throwing the fight. How can you trade so bad on the feet and then tap to that choke?

Bruh, and that choke.

No hooks with Pena not even really controlling her. That's some white belt shit.

Just saw the fight again.

Look at Pena's stand up, he looks like an amateur when they're throwing hands. It's impossible that Nunes is worse than THAT.

And regarding the choke, no hooks as you say and she tapped so quickly. She either threw that fight or haven't trained since her last fight and gassed after one minute.

That main event was bonkers, what a beautiful sub. That's one for a highlight reel

Happy that Cruz won aswell, & Cody got fucked up, idk what has happened to him, his chin is shot it seems.

Probably best representation of the "traditional BJJ" in MMA nowadays.

Cody was never that good. Now there are younger versions of him.

You don't think? His performance against Cruz was brilliant a few years back, Cruz was very good back then too.

That was impressive. But he won because of his physical traits not because he was a better fighter than Cruz.

Cruz is the more skilled fighter for sure.
