    mthalane-Yaegashi was a really good fight. it’s on YouTube. Yaegashi was fast but Mthalane just kept the pressure on him,wore him out and stopped him.

    So I don’t know what it is but I find myself very much looking forward to watching the mcgregor fight. I know nothing about his opponent. Mcgregor just has that it factor.

    Me too...btw glad to see you're ok and posting again. All you need to know is that Cowboy Cerrone is a gate keeper at the UFC. This is a tune up fight for McGregor. He is a cash cow that has been inactive for 2 years so they are protecting their investment. Should be an exciting fight because Cerrone comes to fight. He got knocked out in his last fight so this should not go the distance.

    I've tried, I really have but i just cannot get really interested in MMA - They are trying hard to hype a danish fighter at the moment, he's a former olympic wrestler. I appreciate the skills involved, I'd just rather watch a half decent boxing match.

    Tropicana and other casinos in Atlantic City are putting up billboards promoting the event. Feels like 15 to 20 years or so ago when boxing was promoted on closed circuit in casinos.

    The weight classes are way diffrent in the UFC and yeah it doesn't make sense. But I like it. No midget weight classes in the UFC. Also UFC hw's have a cut off point unlike boxing where you can have super heavyweights. Again fine by me. Nothing exciting in having to watch a couple of uncordinated behemoths huffing and puffing for 12 rds. The did away with everything I hate about boxing.

    A lot of people are criticizing Jarret Hurd and Danny Garcia after their performances last night. They have to realize that it takes a lot of hard work, dedication and discipline to go 12 rounds with an overmatched opponent. When you have an opponent who doesn't have the style to outbox you, the power to hurt you and the strength to outmuscle you and you go 12 rounds then you've accomplished something that some of the greatest fighters in history have failed to do.

    Lol are you serious or being sarcastic?

    I watched both fights. Horrible performance from both guys against tomato cans. But that's the kind of crappy cards Al Haymond and pbc puts together.

    I'm being dead serious. You have to be extremely disciplined to go 12 rounds with a fighter you should be able to get rid of in a couple of rounds. Outside of the first fight between Fulton jr. and Kaghei the card was one of the worst Showtime cards in recent memory. Horrid.

    The Welter weight division has plenty of talent. Spence, Crawford, Porter and Paquio. The problem is Spence and Crawford are afraid to fight each other for two reasons. They know somebody's O got to go. 2. Them fighting each other at this point in their career may not be as lucrative as a fight with Paquio. Less risk and a higher reward $$$ fighting a 40 year old legend who's 5"5.

    I watched some of the pbc pre fight specials on wilder and fury. They’re just so fake. Neither of them are engaging to me in the slightest. Feels like they’re both trying so hard to be clever, it all just falls flat. It’s like theatre. In contrast, I watched a couple of masvidal specials on his career, sooooo much more engaging and genuine.

    What do you guys think about the Crawford vs McGregor talk? The first fight would be MMA rules and the 2nd boxing rules. Both fights would, of course, take place months apart. Crawford apparently has a wrestling background. Could he win both fights?
