I searched UFC and nothing came up so I'm starting a new topic. I'm watching 166 now, I've just watched the Melenzez V Sanchez fight and it was bloody epic! So entertaining, Sanchez always puts on great fights he's once crazy bastard. 

Check it out if you haven't seen it, slug fest!

There has been some great fights this year, Jones V Gustavson was fantastic and there have been many more great fights this year.

I just cant get into it much anymore.

As the fighters get more well rounded its leading to a hell of a lot of boring fights,or if one fighter cant stop a takedown he has lost.As the way the judges score fights a takedown will win you a round even if you nothing with it.Its a shame as i loved it up till a couple of years back.

I think the opposite actually, there is less one sided wrestler fights these days because strikers know they need to know how to stop take downs or get up if they get taken down.

Jones v Guststavson was an amazing fight which was 90% stand up and this latest card had 3 or 4 really good fights.

There was one crappy year I think it was 2011 maybe 12 I can't recall, but the last half a dozen or so cards have had some amazing fights. Also there is always at least one or two good fights on a card so even if the main event stinks you know you're likely to see some good stuff. In boxing if the main event sucks then that's it, no one cares about the under card. Also the more you know about the fighters the more you get into it and the UFC understands that, that's why the Ultimate fighter show is so important because it builds fans personal relationships with fighters. It's very smart marketing which boxing does not do at all and that's why there is only a handful of fighters people know and care about.

Just watched the main event, JDS is so God damn tough. Cain's cardio is just insane though, the pressure he puts on is so tough for anyone to deal with.

Great fight, I don't see anyone beating Cain for a while though unless they land a lucky punch. JDS is clearly the second best fighter and Cain has his number so we might see a legacy.

Hell yeah, Diego is an animal and Gil is just class. I wouldn't be surprised if Gil beats Pettis although Pettis is an amazing and incredibly entertaining fighter also. That is an awesome fight on paper.  There are so many good potential match ups right now, I don't think think the UFC has been more even or has had so many potential good fights in it's history.

Just finished watching now. Ot was an epic card. The only let down was my man Big County.

 

JDS could have had cain in the first 30seconds but chose to back off and go with his game plan, instead of maybe getting caught. That for me cost him the fight.

 

GSP and Hendrix next and Sonnen on card too.

Sanchez' cut above his eye was unreal, it was the length of his eyebrow. Unreal heart from that guy, what a fight.

 

Nelson is a one punch pony to be honest, Cormier dealt with him well.

Cormier can deal with any of the heavyweights imo.

I would fancy him to beat Cain personally as i dont think Cain could out wrestle him and couldn't dictate the pace.

I don't think he wants to fight Cain due to them being training partners, there is talk he'll go down to LH to fight Jones.

Cormier was too boring for me.

 

Both cuts on the card where bad. With different docs each of those fights could have been stopped.

 

I think at Light heavyweight Jones would be able to pick off Cormier with ease if he drops down to take that fight.

 

Also looking forward to Tate. And Rousey in december. Things are really kicking off between the in TUF.

 

Also I want to do bad things to Rhonda. She looks mucky as fuck,

Seems to be bad blood between Cormier and Jones as Cormier thinks that Jones has disrespected him. Not sure that the fight will take place till next summer and by then Jones will just be too dominant for him.

 

Would love to see GSP and Jones fight to see who really is the best P4P at the minute, but that will not happen either.

 

Weiderman and Silva coming up also and should Silva lose, I'm sure he will take time out. UFC is getting very exciting again IMO

Im not keen on TUF and have not been in years.

The first season was immense and the talent levelof fighters was very good overall.Its too much based on personality for me.They should leave it a year or two to get some good guys for it.

I dont think the Tate-Rousey fight will be good.Tate showed great fight to stay in the armbar so long last time but it was a fucking stupid thing to do as it cost her a bad injury.Rousey is as far ahead off the others as Cyborg was in her division.Its a no contest.

 

 

Cormier gets his hands on anyone and they are going down most times.

GSP will never fight Jones,he never wanted to put the weight on for the Anderson fight and would be outweighed by a good 40lb on fight night to Jones

Im still bitter Pride and Japanese MMA collapsed.

The competition for talent and putting on great events was needed imo.

Nothing used to beat a new years eve card from Japan.

Amazing card that was, Diego is crazy I can`t believe how much punishment he ate... he`s such an entertaining fighter to watch.

 

The main event with Cain V Santos should have been stopped earlier, JDS could have been seriously injured long term by that. Cain seems to be on the brink of knocking him out or 1-2 punches away from the ref stopping it, but then he`d push him against the cage and almost hold him up.  It was like he wanted to punish him rather than finish him.  Herb Dean actually stopped the fight in the 3rd but then let it carry on for some reason.

Some great fights in store tonight.Im sleeping a work for a few hours as its a long card and id have to miss the main events otherwise.Ill have a kip in the first aid room get up at 12 have a shower and tune in.

 

The main event really could go either way as Silva is getting older now but I fancy him for one last run.Similar in the Barnett-Browne match up.Browne can be put down byt recovers well but if Barnett gets on top he is in real trouble.Great to see Barnett back as a long teem fan.Ill probably back the same as you but its close in the two mentioned.

 

Thats three for the prediction league if I can get another 2-3 ill set it up.

I can't see silva losing again, he was messing about last time and deserved what he got, I can see him coming out strong but even if he does take Weidmann out I can't see him being long for the sport, the motivation isn't there anymore

    • Sounds more to me like the Egyptian Football Federation pushing for it - no quotes from Mo there at all.
    • Step forward Stan Boardman, fokker.
    • He's taking the fucking piss with this one. I don't give a fuck if he wants to play in the Olympics . He is already missing a month of the season. Now he wants no preseason and to miss the opening week at least. 
    • I think England will beat Germany, then scrape through against Sweden or Ukraine.  Southgate, Sterling & Kane will all be knighted before the semi-final where England lose on penalties to Wales. 
    • Mo Salah is planning to appeal the decision by Liverpool to not release him to play in the upcoming Olympic Games in Japan.   Salah was certain to be named as one of three over age players for Egypt for the games which begin on the 22nd of July but Liverpool have blocked him from taking part.   The reluctance of the club to let their superstar go is clear as the sporting showcase concludes on the 7th of August which is just one week before the new Premier League season begins.   With the possibility of Salah having to self-quarantine on his return to England, it could be a few weeks into the season before he takes to the pitch with the Reds.   However the Mirror ( per Network ONTimeSport) report that the Egyptian Football Federation and Salah himself is not taking the decision lying down and Football president Ahmed Megahed spoke about the situation.    “I do not want to say that it is impossible for Salah to participate in the Olympics, but it is difficult.   “Salah agreed to lead the Olympic team during the last camp of the Egyptian team.   “We contacted Liverpool to allow Salah to join the Olympic team, and they said they were waiting for the approval of the technical staff.   “In the end, Liverpool refused the request because they do not want to lose the player at the beginning of the season, as well as next January with the Africa Cup of Nations, which will keep him from participating in the English Premier League matches.   “We spoke with Salah again, and he told us that he will make a new attempt with the technical staff of his team, to resolve the matter, and within the next two days he will find a way.”     If this particular saga draws out, it gives Jurgen Klopp a headache he can do without on the eve of a new campaign.   Salah has been nothing but professional and a proven world class talent whenever he has taken to the pitch to play for the club, but away from it he has a knack of giving interviews which casts doubt on how long he will remain with Liverpool.   His current deal expires in 2023 meaning there is no pressing need for him to sign a new one at this stage.   Salah will be 31 in two years time, but he has a great durability over his Reds career and the club will take a number of factors into play.   The main one is in fact if the player wants to extend his stay, and plenty of things can change over a period of time.   For now let’s just hope this particular matter can be addressed as amicably as possible and Mo is in the starting line-up against Norwich.
