    I doubt he will be cut despite the run of losses.

    Perry is great for the sport, win or lose. IDK about him winning. It was a great fight. Super close. At the end of the day, I think damage counts more than winning rounds. If someone moves forward, get's take downs but does no damage from top and can't hold the position or threaten subs from top for most of the fight, and lands more, but does no damage, then get's cut and has his nose smashed into his face...he lost the fight. GSP vs Hendricks comes to mind. I think George lost that fight. I think Perry lost this one, but delivered for the fans and the company....as he always does.

    Diaz v Pettis! Fan fight! Nate vs Cowboy rematch MUST happen before they both call it quits.

    Fuck yeah!!!!! I can not wait... I went to the open workouts and was surprised how tall Diaz is, making 155 couldn't have been easy. DC is a fucking beast & stipe is a giant, Pettis has some really slick moves as well. Weigh ins today at the convention center should be fun but I am really looking forward to Saturday night, I was at DC vs Stipe 1 so I'm fucking stoked to see the rematch live.

    interesting...D.C. weighs in at 236lbs vs 246lbs in the first stipe fight.
    What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?

    Both DC & Stipe looked lean yesterday, interested to see what Stipe weighs in at

    I had Costa by a hair with the pressure, body shots, etc....but...holy shit Romero...does he know that he's 42 fawking years old?

    My only gripe...why oh why did he let Costa off the ropes...not once, but twice??? Thought for sure it was a finish in the making.

    Damn that woulda been a hell of a main event...and still 2 more wars to go!

    Hellz yeah. Made the adjustments with those vicious digs with the left hand to the body...followed by the final flurry. Nice work Stipe. I was a doubter...thought D.C. had more ring i.q. All due respect to Stipe for the win. What a fight! That pace...for heavyweights...wow, indeed.

    Dunno about you guys but those final 4 fights had that certain 'je ne sais quoi' that elevated the card above the rest this year. "There are levels to this game".

    ^

    Great night of fights, The Honda Center went the fuck off last night...

    Feel bad for DC, he came in great shape & faught a great fight but Stipe did not come lose last night. Diaz looked great, he shut down Pettis in very aspect of that fight and the crowd went fucking nuts! Romero vs Costa was a brutal war, Paulo got wheeled out in a wheel chair, personally I think Romero won 2 rounds but that was as close as any fight Ive seen. 9 decisions last night made for a long fucking night in those seats, didn't leave the arena until almost 11pm & we got there at 3pm for the early prelims

    I don't think Cormier was "fat", thats always been his body type. "Stout" I'd say

    you don't get very many ripped heavyweights

    roll them eyes all ya want he didn't look in shape for a 5 round title defense
    those end of the 3rd pitty pat punches said it all
    maybe stipe will flunk his whizz quiz and while the on the floor asswhoopin will remain he'll git another cheap win
    wouldn't bank on it
    so much for the ring rust theorists predictions

    At the same time, however, Cormier did his fair share to lose the match. In between rounds, his corner was strongly encouraging him to wrestle more instead of trying to go for the knockout shot. As was seen in the fight, these instructions were clearly ignored—Cormier did not attempt a takedown in the third or fourth—and he told reporters after the match that that was his biggest regret.

    “They were begging me to wrestle, and that’s probably the most disappointing is I didn’t do what I was training to do, and I feel like I let my coaches down,” Cormier said Saturday night after being knocked.

    [...]

    “I think when you start finding success and landing things, you just kind of fall in love with it,” Cormier said. “It feels like the (Alexander) Gustafsson fight all over again, when I wrestled a lot in the first round, and the last four rounds I just didn’t.

    “They were begging me to do it then, but tonight I actually paid the ultimate price for not listening to my coaches. Usually, I’m pretty good at doing that.

    “I was hitting him, and I could see him getting marked up, and I think you fall in love with the visuals of a guy’s face getting marked up.”

    Diaz! He really mixes things up now. Someone make the Cowboy rematch before they both retire.
    I'll watch DC lose over and over. He fell in love with is his hands? He fell in love with his hype. Dude has been living his own myth for years now calling himself the greatest of all time. Fuck DC.

    Well, managed to watch the main event of ufc 157. Was kinda trippy watching/listening to Bruce Buffer just givin'er with his pre fight introduction speech with his bellicose delivery echoing to a seemingly empty arena...coulda heard a pin drop in the pauses between words...kinda seemed like he was practicing or something to a crowd that was directed to turn their volume to mute.

    Then.... wow, .... AND NEW!!! Total domination in the 40 seconds of fighting. Nice tony ferg elbows, trippple C knees, Zhang Weili!

    Go D.P. Just a layman here but thinkin' a strong leg kick, knee, uppercut and body shot game could be keys to victory for the offence...and a strong offence could be a good defense to keep the takedown at bay? Mags who know the score; whuddyou guys think?

    Blowout.

    Post fight presser...some interesting quote from Khabib:

    reporter asks how he felt in second round when Dustin connected with a few punches:
    "ahh, how I can feel. this is a fight, you know. he punch my face, how I can feel....nobody like if someone punch your face. you know, dis is no good."

    how's he gonna feel when Tony connects with his face...over and over again?

    What a performance. EVERYONE is asleep on Khabibs hand speed, cardio, mental toughness. It's like we can only see his wrestling because it's SO good. Those entries! Mixed in really well with his hands, like GSP but more dominant once the clinch is on, and maybe without the kicks.

    Tony throws those elbows and they cut people. That said it's hard to get that range with a wrestler as dynamic as the Eagle because wrestling counters pressure striking so effectively.

    "On the way in..." is what you hear. Maybe. Rubber Guard? 10p BJJ? Maybe. I bet Tony will be looking a lot at just the right squeeze to finish an arm in Guillotine. If Dustin could have gotten his elbow high we might have had "And New" istead of "And Still" Stoked for Furgesson to finally have his well deserved shot. I think it's a dangerous fight for Khabib, but still think Justin Gaethje is the most dangerous fight for Khabib. Intriguing on many levels.

    Paul Felder received the greatest gift of Modern UFC judging blunders. I like Felder, but C'mon. When are we gonna see something done about the judging. At least stop having big fights in places where the judges are not experienced with the UFC. These are people's careers. Barbosa won that so clearly, and deserves to have the UFC to fix that crap.


    Cerrone was still in that fight.....before he blew his nose. Maybe after Tony get "Smeshed", and if Cerrone somehow miraculously undoes Gaethje, maybe we see a rerun of Cowboy v Tony. I heard Masvidal v Diaz on for sure.

    I’m not mad about the Felder decision. That was a close fight. It’s crazy that he got 30-27 but it easily could have gone either way.
