I liked the part where he threw the haymakers (and missed).

It was a good warmup for Hendo. I don't know if Nelson is just too stupid, getting bad coaching, or uncoachable.

Would love to see Weidman win, but I certainly wouldn't put money on it.

After he wrecked Munoz I thought for sure he was going to be big trouble for Silva. Maybe it's the layoff and lack of a true contender match, but I'm not nearly as confident now.

The only thing that will beat Silva is his own decline. Whoever beats him is just going to get lucky on the timing. Is that Weidman? I doubt it, but it could be.

That's why I hate the 10 fight contract. Almost guarantees a Fedoresque exit.

Silva was taunting Weidman right before getting his ass knocked out. Priceless.

So frustrating because I think Silva wins if he fights seriously. He does this about half the time and it was just a matter of time before he got caught. He is obviously bored, but the super fights are all dead now.

Feels like when I saw Fedor lose.

The greatest of all time being bored, cocky and too rich to care.


AGENT ZERO wrote:I don't think it was taunting so much as an attempt to get Weidman to come forward and strike rather than go for the take-down. It worked beautifully in the first round, but then Silva kept going to it and the results speak for themselves... Even still, I think Silva was a bit unlucky, Weidman really didn't catch him with a hard left, it was just placed perfectly.


Yeah it's just the no respect thing. You do that with Maia, you don't do it with a lanky guy with power.

Oh, and this should, silence all the GSP haters. That's why you fight smart when you are a franchise.

That should end Silva's career. He's already 38 and he'll need at least a year to fully recover.

Our long national nightmare is finally over. I guess MMA fans were right when we were calling Ronda's striking awful while the UFC was trying to convince people that she could hang with top boxers or muay thai fighters.

And the big baby didn't even stick around for a loser's interview. :donger:

I never thought I'd see the day... But I guess that's what happens when a judo practitioner with a few years of boxing experience tries to strike with a world class boxer. I fully expect Ronda to go to the take down early and often in the rematch and win via arm bar.

Rousey is a legitimately good striker when you consider how new she is to boxing. She is arrogant for thinking it was enough to outbox a world class boxer though, she never should have tried to stand with Holmes, she did her a huge favour.

Ronda is exactly what we thought she was: the female Royce Gracie.

Her judo is elite, but her striking is absolutely awful. She wings punches and her head movement is nonexistent. On top of that, she got discouraged and sloppy as soon as things weren't going her way and ran out of gas in the second round.

She's going to get mauled by Cyborg if she ever agrees to fight her. I hope she does.

She's not that new by WMMA standards. The last broad she fought was an accountant who only started doing martial arts in 2011 as a way to lose weight. All these girls are new to MMA.

Ronda has been doing MMA full time since 2010, which makes her one of the more experienced fighters in WMMA, and she's been focusing on her boxing the entire time. The problem is that Edmond Tarverdyan is a bad coach, which why no one else trains with him.

Holly Holm, on the other hand, only started dabbling in MMA in 2011 and switched over from boxing full time in 2013. She went to the best camp in MMA and was able to learn enough to stop Ronda's clinch and even take her down.

Ronda had more time to learn than Holm did and she had the benefit of an elite grappling background (which is a far better foundation to start with) and a coach who put 100% of his effort into her. She's just an awful striker and she got exposed badly against the very first opponent she ever faced who knew how to counter strike and use footwork so as to not stand right in front of Ronda and wait to get thrown. It was so funny.

Tonight's card was interesting. Weidman and Rockhold was pretty even until Weidman tried that spin kick and got taken down. A lot of people slept on Rockhold but he's pretty damn good, a former world BJJ champion and first guy to ever land a takedown on Weidman. Weidman is a great wrestler but I was never really impressed with his stand-up all that much, though he landed some nice kicks on Rockhold.

Aldo vs McGregor...LOL. So unsatisfying. Aldo clearly let McGregor get to his head, he went on the offensive right away and exposed himself pretty bad. Although that was pretty unexpected for him to just fall like that from one punch....sigh. Looking like he won't get an immediate rematch either, apparently they're gonna go with McGregor vs Edgar next.

Unsatisfying is the exact word I've used. The biggest grudge match in UFC history shot to shit in 13 seconds with one short left hand.

I still think Aldo has enough to beat Conor. He's still the best leg kicker in the world, he's still a BJJ black belt who has tapped some elite BJJ guys in grappling matches and he's still an outstanding wrestler. He has all the right skills to beat Conor. Unless he went to shit overnight like Renan Barao (possible) he's still among the elite of the elite.

It's nice and all that Frankie Edgar did well against Mendes, but I don't still don't like them not giving Aldo an immediate rematch. A ten year winning streak, he defended the belt against the next best guy nine straight times, he's one of the greatest ever (I'd have him in my top five) and he was beaten in what could conceivably be a fluke along the lines of Cain/JDS 1.

If Aldo doesn't deserve an immediate rematch I don't know who does. My guess is that Dana is still holding a grudge for Aldo pulling out in the summer.

It's horseshit that he's not getting a rematch after losing for only the first time in 10 years while Rousey is getting a rematch no questions asked. Apparebtly McGregor may just go straight up to lightweight now because he doesn't like the weight cut required for featherweight.

He better vacate the belt if he does. It's not like he's actually cleaned out the division yet. Heck, he was getting beaten by Mendes on 15 days rest before he caught him. Like everyone else, I'd like to see Aldo get another shot too, anyone can get caught once. But I like the Frankie angle. Frankie's getting older and I think is peaking in this weight class right now. He's been a company guy for ages too, so reward him with the shot. Plus he's a great matchup for Conor. Aldo is still only 29, so he can go shake the rust off and rebuild his confidence against someone else then come back for another shot.

That said, how much fun would a Cerrone-McGregor fight be?

^ Just saw this, but McGregor vs RDA...RDA is dangerous. Beat Pettis up pretty bad and then embarrassed Cowboy. I do hope Edgar gets a chance.

Anyone watch UFC 195? WW title fight was really entertaining as I expected, just straight up brawling with virtually no ground game. Final decision was bullshit though...Condit controlled the pace of the fight I felt and threw as well as landed way more strikes than Lawler did. Even at the end when Condit was eating those shots, Lawler looked like he was dead and he froze even though Condit was practically in a pseudo-drunken state and could barely keep standing.

Round 1, 3 and 4 were definitely Condit's imo, and I thought a case could've even been made for round 5. Entertaining fight, horrible outcome.

Also from Helwani's Twitter:

White said Condit said in the back he might retire. If you recall, he hinted at this in November.


Really hope that's not true, I really like Condit, one of my favourite fighters and just seems like a really cool guy overall. He's been a WW title threat for a while and I really thought that it was his time.

Yeah, I don't know how two judges gave round 3 to Lawler.

Another interesting set of scenarios there. I'd give Condit another shot right away, unless GSP likes the results of his test camp and they want to rush him into the title shot.

There were some rumours from some Montreal radio station about GSP returning last week but clearly it appears to have been false (he also came out and denied the claims).

Hendricks got TKO'd by Thompson, major upset. Not only did he get finished, but it happened in swift, dominant fashion. I knew Thompson was a great striker, but god damn, he looked amazing out there. Hendricks has one of the best chins in MMA and has never been knocked out before, and he battled Robbie Lawler for 10 rounds without being KO'd, yet Wonderboy finished him in round 1. He moves extremely well and made it look so effortless, and he had quite the arsenal of kicks...looks like all the Karate paid off for him. I can see him being a future WW champ, hell GSP mentioned 4 years ago that Thompson had an elite striking game.

Made up for an otherwise shit card. WW is quite the entertaining division these days, and this only adds to that. Lawler, Condit, McDonald, Woodley, Hendricks and now Thompson. Some real good competition there, very interesting to see what happens going forward.
