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. 

Edwards you mean. That's actually a good fight.

 

Usman could surpass GSP but has a lot to do first but you're right the potential is there as he's so dominant.

Yeah Edwards

 

Usman best wins are easily arguably better than GSP at Welterweight already. Woodley, Covington and Burns are better than Hughes, Fitch, Shields and Koscheck. 

 

The level in MMA has gone through the roof the past 10 years. Everyone is a far more complete fighter.

What do you think of Chimaev? Are you on the hype train or not?

Looks great but needs to beat someone before he's worth the hype. Seen to many flash in the pans to get excited anymore. Shame as I was looking forward to the fight.

Usman is welterweight Khabib with hands.

 

Unless he retires early or his knees blow up, no one is taking the belt off him.

Colby Covington can. 

Not saying he will as Usman just looks to be getting better but Colby as big a dick as the character he's playing up is, is a really really good fighter. Tough as fuck and a even better tank than Usman. 

 

The scorecards going into that 5th round in the first fight 3-1 Usman, 3-1 Colby and 2-2.

Their cardio seems equal and Usman only seems to be getting better as a striker. With Trevor Wittman as his coach, he'll keep on improving. Colby is a very basic, volume based puncher with no power. I think Usman beats him easily in a rematch.

Usman looks more vulnerable than Khabib. Burns had him hurt but let him recover by lying on the floor for the rest of the round and the Colby took him all the way.

 

He's a very dominant champion but not like Khabib who barely lost a round in a much more talent rich division.

Yeah but no way Khabib can endure those jabs/punches from a much MUCH bigger fighter like Usman.

 I'm not saying Khabib beats him, just that he's a more dominant champion. Gaethje reckons Khabib would beat Usman after fighting Khabib and training with Usman. May be a case of making himself feel better though after being pretty much humiliated by Khabib.

That's fair enough. Usman's striking is far better than Khabib's but I think Khabib has dominated completely because strikers have gone into fights with him thinking they can negate his grappling game with one punch or kick but can't get past his ungainly, unorthodox but effective head movement before he starts to impose his grappling pedigree.

Starting to watch some of the fights I missed last year and rewatching some favourites. 

 

Watching Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Weili Zhang. 

 

Haha

Mike Brown at the end of R1, she will slow down soon.

Not sure if anyone interested but OneFC have a great kickboxing/muay Thai card on today. The Muay Thai is especially interesting as they do it in MMA gloves. Normally in a cage too, though not always. 

 

Get the app and it's on there and you can look through later on for a direct YouTube link to the full event. 

 

 

Also the next month of UFC is unbelievably good. 

 

Saturday

Rozenstruik vs Gane

A few others next week the card is that good Dominic Cruz and Joseph Benavidez are on the prelims

 

Leon Edwards 

 

And announced for April the Figueiredo and Moreno rematch confirmed

Dana said it's bullshit though and that he hasn't retired?

 

Anyone see the card the other day? What a snooze fest that was!

Dana also saying a June still spitting up blood months after getting covid is due to fight in 8 weeks and that Khabib isn't coming back.

Yeah the card wasn't great. To be fair they've generally been really good of late and this weekend card is stacked to fuck. One have some good cards soon and Bellator is due back and live on Iplayer to boot
