Had his day.
It's 8 years since he KO'd Aldo and he's had very little action, become addicted to coke and fame, roided up since then.

There's no way he reaches that level again which I believe came from an unrelenting desire, focus and will to be the best.

He lost that a long time ago.

There’s so many interesting fighters and potential match ups that it’s not even like the sport is crying out for his return. It will be fun but also meh…

I was there for the Bisping title defence with the same start time!

It was a weird thing leaving the arena at 6am, don’t know why I booked a hotel tbh!

The UFC confuses me greatly with their start times. They seem to love the 7PM PST time no matter where the event takes place(they’ve started it at this time even though the events in Abu Dhabi, England, Aussie, etc). And then they’ll choose a few Fight Nights to start at normal hours where the event takes place & then start a card in Brazil at noon pacific. I really don’t get it.

This may have gone under the radar with the boxing last night, but good win for Lerone Murphy last night over Barboza to remain undefeated.

Dos Santos got poked twice in the 1st round. Got no time to recover on the 1st & ref didnt even acknowledge the 2nd. Then he ate a brutal knee to end the round. Facing the ref & Brown that round. Absolute warrior.

What is the obsession with all the UFC fighers boot licking Trump?

Is it early onset CTE?

Feel bad for Dustin, he did a lot better than i expected and gave Islam a really tough fight.

Another note. Strickland is getting a bit of a reputation for having a boring fight style/being a decision merchant, but I personally really enjoy his style, he puts the pace on his opponents and they just back up the entire time not wanting to engage. I really thought costa would slug it out with him.

One last point - the judges are a joke in this sport. How can 2 judges have it 49-46 strickland and the other have it 50-45 costa. Wtf?
(I may be slightly out with those numbers - but the scores are all over the place)

Sean would be a horrible fight to have. Constant pressure. Saps energy like there’s no tomorrow.

Also I see the Dublin press conference has been postponed 👀
