    Felder won the takedown. He cracked Edson and got taken down but all the damage on the ground was Felder. He opened him up. Obviously the switch kicks to the body were Edsonís bread and butter but I think Felder did more damage. Fight could easily have gone either way. No way anyone deserved 30-27 the judging is no doubt fucked.

    Iíve been thinking about this a lot lately.
    Itís nice that judges are awarding more 10-8 rounds, but Iíd like to see the rules changed to allow 9-9(draw) rounds. If neither fighter is dominant in a round, why should one be rewarded with a 10? Maybe that might eliminate some of the judging discrepancies.
    Or maybe it makes it worse.
    Or better because fighters will need to really win rounds, not just get one takedown.

    The issue is two judges watched the fight. One thought one guy won all rounds, the other judge thought the other did. The judges are appointed by the athletic commission, many from boxing. The judges need to understand MMA better so they understand that things like leg kicks matter more than a cut over someone's eye from a jab, ect.

    Cerrone submitting Gaethje is such an interesting turn of events for the division. I'm gonna call 4th round. Not sure Cowboy is gonna survive that long. I think Gaethje is the most dangerous guy to content with for anyone in the top 5, Cerrone is in trouble trying to deal with the pressure that Gaethje is gonna bring but I'm pulling for him. Let's go Donald!

    I'm thinking Gaethje by decision. Two guys who are hard to knock out. You could hit Gaethje with a 2X4 and the guy would keep coming forward

    Gaethje v Khabib. Such a good match up. See what happens with T-Ferg. How about Glover?!?!

    Well that was a weird one last night, no fucking way Stephens was faking or whatever the fuck the retarded crowd thought.

    Eye poke to Stephens. Couldnít recover, so called after the 5 minutes. Stephens is a BANGER, so not fakin.

    Crowd goes bizerker....throwing full cups and trash. As Stephens is escorted out, some bottles are thrown along with the other trash.

    Totally nuts.

    +1 for "go B.K."

    In my mind, lots of questions to be answered about Izzy. Too much too soon? Will he wilt under pressure? Can he keep B.K. at distance? Can he land a head kick? Will he go to work with low leg kicks? How good will his take down defense be and if he gets taken down, can he get back up? Knuckles is lookin' swole...that strength should transpose good to the wrestling/grappling if it goes that way.

    I hope it's a good long, technical battle but kinda thinkin' someone's gonna finish before the fifth and it might be lopsided either way.

    Izzy. Questions answered. Real deal.

    The way I see it; Whittaker played a risk/reward game. Take chances to get inside, get outside quick...left himself open. He led with his head, leaving it exposed to counterstrikes. He didn't show the same game of Gastelum who slipped a lot of punches.

    Coulda went either way, imo. Knuckles moved forward and coulda landed but it was Izzy who landed with a tactical strike. Eyes open and on the prize even when backing up, from what I saw.

    There was a brief shot of Paulo Costa being restrained at ring side after the KO, that's a fight to look forward to.

    Hooker made Raging Al look lost and feeble.

    Al is about as 1 dimensional as it gets. Hooker's striking has been on another plane for a while. Romero, Costa, Kelvin again, those are the fights I want to see for Isreal.

    +1 for a Gastelum rematch with Izzy for another fight of the year.

    November 2nd card is STACKED. I think Gorge chops Diaz down with lead leg kicks. Kelvin v Till could look a lot like Masdival V Till did. Better boxing. A round to find the range and timing....
    The rest look entertaining as well.

    This week has a couple good ones. Waterson over Joanna? I think so. She's been mixing the game really well and Joanna is nasty but really just straight forward Thai KB. Kron V Cub...Hoping Cub can keep the gate closed on Kron. Love him as a fighter, he deserves another win he has lost a lot lately, but all to good guys. Kron will have his day.
