Yeah it will be interesting mate.

 

Same, there's some great promotions out there with some great fighters.

 

Big fan of Khabib but he should've been stripped as soon as he retired. Dana is a joke for suggesting that to Khabib.

Actually I happy he didn't. Not for Khabib holding the title longer but it stopped them forcing the title on a fight like tonight. I like this let them all fight it out for a bit till you get 2 at the top and a Legit title fight.

One think you can't talk shit about Conor is his reaction to losing. No real excuse. 

 

Wonder if we see him again, seems in a weird heads space in presser. Reckon we will but it might just be a money fight with Diaz or back to boxing with Pacquiao, though I think the money in that fight will be badly hurt after this

Yeah he'll still be a big draw but his reputation to the casuals will be even more diminished now. He's got one win in about 4 years, crazy that he's still this big anyway to me.

For me

Hooker vs Ferguson

Conor vs Diaz

 

Olivera vs Gaethje

Chandler vs Dustin

I think Dana said in a few interviews that he already has something lined up for nate at 155.

 

So for me I'd have 

 

McGregor vs Hooker

Ferguson vs diaz

 

Dustin vs Olivera

Chandler vs Gaethje

 

 

I wonder what Conor will do now though, he's never really taken big hits like that before, when he's lost its been a bit of a choke then tap no major harm done do no long term effects on his health so nothing to lose really. 

Now he might be thinking he isn't as invincible on the feel as he previously thought, and that could be a wakeup call to knock it on the head while he's still healthy.

I've only seen snippets of the KO, didn't look that big of a shot. Was he out cold or did he just get TKO'd and kinda quit?

Looked like he took a couple that rocked him, then he tried to slip a left but moved his head towards the right hand. Wasn't a massive shot but if your head is moving toward the fist then the impact is multiplied.

Had a strange career Johnson, some great wins and some bad losses. No consistency at all.

Have you seen the size of Volkov at the minute? Can't seem to find the picture but there was one on twitter and he looks huge. He's going to struggle massively to make 265

One of my most memorable fights/stare downs is Sanchez vs Guida though.

One of the guys fighting tonight, this was his debut, sadly he lost but deserved a Masvidal style KO for this

BT didn't record it for me for some bullshit reason! Happens far too often for my liking.

 

Did Overeem retire? Be a shame to see him go but it's time.

 

That card last night had so many fighters that need to retire!

That Sandhagen KO over Edgar was brutal.

 

It's the right time for Overreem to retire, he was abysmal. Looked like an old man in there that didn't want to fight.

How did Meatball fair in her fight? Couldn't get it on. I know she lost on but I mean in terms of getting stuck in.

She was dominated pretty much start to finish, bar one arm bar atfempt. I had to laugh at the commentary team calling her a power puncher.

Usman impressive again last night, though he did show some vulnerability getting rocked in round 1. He's such a physical freak it's difficult to see anyone in the division beating him, he'd beat Edwards again. Chimaev maybe if he can live up to his hype but let's see if he can beat Edwards next month.

 

Would love to have seen Khabib step up and fight Usman. That would be a super interesting fight despite the size difference.

Usman crushes Khabib 

He's too big and far better on the feet. 

 

They are trying to make Leon Roberts and Colby. 

 

 

Good card

Only complaint on main event was Herb Dean, he's secong guessing himself and getting far to close to the fighters near stoppages. Thought he should ha e stood Burns up, he allowed Usman to recover in the first by hovering over Burns doing nothing to give himself time. Should have told him to do something or stood Burns up. 

 

Usman may well be the greatest 170lber of all time.
