Oh I agree mate.....his opponent was poor.
All I'm saying is TPJ looked like he knows how to throw a punch and could move around the ring. Not saying anything else......

Some brutal KOs and upsets in the UFC today, it was great seeing Tai walk out to the Barbie song and backing it up.

It's so refreshing seeing a championship bout between two ultra respectful competitors ever since the whole McGregor/play the heel schtick took off.

Probably why I forgot it was on.

Give me Colby/Conor/Askren over Oliveira/Poirier

Fair enough, I'd rather better fighters in battles over just hyped up fighters but I see the appeal. Colby being the exception, he's a great fighter.

It's definitely the smarter financial move for them as well, look what Conor's made off playing the douche despite having a single win in 5 years.

Conor is rich because of his personality on top of all his wins, it's not like he is just some bum.

His personality is what gets people tuning in still, not his record.
Most other fighters would struggle for a Main Event having not won in 5 years, yet he will most likely continue to headline cards due to "What will Conor say next" and making Dana millions.

It's the sole reason he still draws a crowd - cue the Khabib and Mayweather matches where it garnered millions to watch despite everyone knowing the outcome.

I'm not shitting on him, he used to be a great fighter - it's just been a long time. His next fight really needs to be an average match up to get a W, as he's just not on the same level as the new/current crop.

At this point i dont see him going past the last few fights on his contract,think he is about making them big $$$ fights then likely move onto freak fights like what has been going on with triller in boxing.

He definitely shouldn't be fighting anyone in the top 5. Should be fighting Diaz or Tony Ferg.

I was so tempted to put money on Pena, just had this gut feeling she would win. Then i forgot all about it and never did.

Besides Colby who deserves respect as he is top fighter in his division, the other two you just mentioned are either way past it (McGregor should have retired 3 years ago) or never had it to begin with (Askrens sole highlight in mma is taking a knee to the head off Masvidal)

Nunes losing whilst is a major shock but is actually really good for the women's UFC. It opens the division up now

Askren was a world champion in multiple organisations outside of the UFC. If he joined UFC in his prime, he would have been a title contender, and most likely a champion.
