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

    • While I'd be happy for us to bin him I'd be happy for us bin AOC as well. It appears Wijnaldum is leaving, and Milner will too.   So we'd be left needing to sign at least two central midfielders next year.    I guess ideally Wijnaldum would end up signing a new deal so at least we'd be left with -   Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Wijnaldum and Jones.
    • Replay clearly showed it was onside because Gomez hadn’t held the line and had dropped back a yard. Bit let’s not mention that, eh?   People still not understanding that second choice keepers are second choice for a reason.
    • That would be a possible career ending muscle strain to Sturridge    Win next week and Atlanta can beat Ajax and suddenly it’s a 6 point gap so you’d like to think Jurgen can then shuffle the team around 
    • Liverpool got their European campaign off to a winning start with a professional 1-0 victory over Ajax at the Johan Cruyff arena on Wednesday evening.

      It has been a very difficult last few days for anyone closely associated with the club in the aftermath of losing defensive lynchpin Virgil Van Dijk for the season due to a incredibly reckless challenge by Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside Derby.

      The anger of Jurgen Klopp and Gini Wijnaldum was still clearly evident in the lead-up to this fixture, but as soon as they took to the pitch, the number one focus was claiming the three points.

      The winning goal came with a stroke of good fortune with Sadio Mane’s cross deflected by Argentine defender Nicolas Tagliafico into his own net ten minutes from the half time break.

      Speaking after the match per the Official site, the manager was honest in his assessment of the footballing quality on display, but thrilled with the end result.

      “This situation is pretty much the picture of the game, so it was not the most easy-on-the-eye performance from both teams, I would say. Both teams can play better football. 

      “But especially in this competition when you play away, a lot of difficulties, pretty much the medical department made the line-up and then you have to win the game – and that's what the boys did. I think that was deserved, even when we had to clear one ball from the line and when they hit the post. 

      “Of course they had their moments but apart from that, we were pretty dominant on a difficult pitch for both teams. I think everybody knows that Ajax is usually a brilliant football team but tonight it was really tricky, the passing was difficult, so you could see that. But we won the game and I'm completely fine."

      As well as the loss of Van Dijk, the Reds were dealt a further blow with Joel Matip ruled out meaning that the manager had to turn to Fabinho who once again filled in ably in the heart of the defence.

      The manager was delighted with performance of the versatile Brazilian who produced a brilliant goal line clearance to deny former Southampton star Dusan Tadic.  

      “Look, in our situation it helps. Of course, was there pressure on the situation? Yes, it’s clear for the two in the back there, 100 per cent. First game together. Fabinho can play the position, he likes playing it actually.

      “If I would have asked him to play right-back I don’t think he would enjoy it as much as he’s enjoying the centre-half position. In our situation in the moment we have to keep those boys fit and then they can of course help us a lot. I’m not surprised he [Fabinho] plays well in the position otherwise we would have thought about a different solution, even when that would have been properly tricky. 

      “I’m really pleased for tonight, pleased for him, yes it gave him confidence, for sure helped us. These situations [goalline clearances], Millie had last season one against Bournemouth, which was a massive one. That tonight was a massive one. And so he had not only because of this a big hand in this victory tonight.”

      Klopp had no reservations in taking off the front three just before the hour mark and felt that their replacements in Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri all had a impact.

      “All three who came on are, first, in a really good shape, fresh in a tricky, difficult game on a difficult pitch. 

      “That helps a lot and you saw they helped a lot. Shaq won deflections, which is pretty special.Taki in both directions, incredible between the lines. And Diogo is a machine so he can punish opponents in one-on-one situations. We had these moments, we didn’t finish them off, unfortunately.”

      “But it’s completely fine, it was important for them. Now we started the group, now we have to concentrate on the league again and then Midtjylland is waiting after that.”
