    It really should be Woodley vs Covington, and i'd much rather see that fight. However, Colby getting screwed over at any time is still satisfying.

    On the list of unfair things the UFC has done, this is towards the absolute bottom so I have no problem with it.

    After the first two fights it’s a dramatic drop off
     
  7. Please don’t let this look like Francis/Lewis

    I think JDS is technical enough to finish him. Or Lewis just throws a wild overhand and puts him out

    It had so much potential and then the Adelaide card happened with Tai/Tyson/Hunt/Matthews all losing. Not to mention Hooker losing to Barbosa.

  9. 235 might be the best card I’ve ever seen

    Fuck. Yes. This is the fight to make for Rose. I honestly love her, but think Jessica will take the title. One of those fights where i'm excited for any outcome.

    It's a pretty damn good one. Some of my overall favorites are 94, 100, 189, 202, 205, and 217.

    I need to watch some more of her fights, but I lean towards thinking Andrade will get out-pointed by Rose. She strikes me as a quick starter and kind of fades as the fight goes on but who knows. Good fight either way.

    Or maybe I'm just bitter because she knocked out my girlfriend Karolina

  14. 235 is legitimately wild.

    The two title fights alone can headline ANY card that doesn't have McGregor on it.

    Askren/Lawler can 100% headline a fight night.

    Holm/Ladd could've headlined a fight night.

    Zabit/Stephens could've.

    Garbrandt/Munhoz could've.

    If you're wearing really thin then Gall/Sanchez could've headlined a fight pass card.

    It's way too late, or much too early Prestigious

    Gall/Sanchez is a great fight. This card is definitely one of, if not the best cards I've ever seen.

  16. Agreed. It's a good fight for Sanchez too because Gall isn't exactly known to light someone up standing. And Diego has never been submitted

    235 is too impressive, I fully expect at least 1-2 fights to drop off. I'd be happy if they didn't though.

    That’s not going to end well for Waterson

    I don’t know man, after suffering a KO punch like she did against JA, that sometimes changes a fighter. We’ve seen it happen many times, but I like Karolina so I’m hopeful for her.

    Listening to the JRE with Din Thomas right now. Din has an interesting but perfect way of describing MMA fighters. You can categorize them in three different ways (with various levels of overlap): Artists (technicality), Athletes (natural ability/athleticism), and Fighters (love to hit and get hit).

    Artists/Athletes: GSP, Woodley, Nunes, DC, Cruz, Holm, Rousey, Overeem, Mighty Mouse
    Artists/Fighters: Diego, Condit, Cowboy, Lawler, Mousasi
    Fighters/Athletes: Hendo, Vitor, Romero, Hughes

    All three: Dillashaw, Jones, Diaz bros, Conor, Khabib

    Edit: Actually, he had a fourth category of "Competitor" which I forgot about because it's so similar to "Athlete". The distinguishing factor there would be in the coaching aspect because an athlete wants to push themselves whereas a competitor is solely focused on winning.
