Yep, another Yamasaki special. I'm going to dig up a torrent since I didn't catch it but over on reddit they're saying the other girl tapped earlier and par for the course, Yamasaki didn't see it.

230-3 in strikes. Dude....


Yeah! Look at this! https://twitter.com/stipemiocicufc/status/960057610325159936


That was absolutely brutal and while Yamasaki deserves to be put into a crucifix and beaten mercilessly for 5 minutes himself, what is up with her corner? Yamasaki is supposed to be incompetent but her corner is supposed to care for her and, in large part, be responsible for her.

That poor girl may never be the same.

You’re absolutely right man. They should have been doing something. Can a corner throw in the towel in mma?

I checked the rules and there are a couple of examples of corners doing that (Diaz's corner vs. Thompson / Smolka vs. Nguyen) but I know that the Diaz fight was just about to be stopped when Nick threw it in.

It's a universal signal of surrender so I'm sure that even a thick dumbass like Yamasaki would've gotten the memo. If there were any rule against it, I'm sure the UFC would have forgone any infractions because anyone with a positive IQ saw that fight should have been stopped.

Good research GTR!
Fighters and Dana White's reaction to Yamasaki's referring after saturday.

One fighter even tweeted about throwing in the towel

Same, but it likely won't happen. at least not for a while if there's any truth to these Floyd Vs McGregor in UFC rumors. McGregor could make stupid money again for an easy fight. No way he chooses getting mauled by Khabib over that

Rockhold vs Romero tonight!

Romero didn’t make weight (took the fight on short notice) so he is ineligible to win the interim title and any fight bonuses. He’ll also have to give some of his purse to Luke too. But if he wins he’ll be the #1 contender

Lawd have mercy...

Is it me or does Rockhold not look the same in his last few fights? He was so dynamic and athletic. He has looked plodding in his 3. Too much celebirty lifestyle in his life? Ain't easy being a model.

Whittacker handily beat this beast with a torn MCL and couldn't even be taken down by an Olympian wrestler. Man, wish it was Bobby Knuckles tonight..love that kid.

Yeah Rockhold looks like a point fighter to me. That’s the best way I can put it. None of his punches have any steam on them. No aggression.

I’ve always heard how good he is but never been able to see it since I started following MMA, I think he’s officially on the decline

I think this is it, in very large part if not completely.

That is one exceedingly self-exalted guy. Arrogance personified. Sure pathway to being humbled. His face and reaction immediately after the fight said it all. Hopefully this makes him a better person outside the octagon because it’s looking like his better days inside of it are behind.

Seems to me that this only shows that Whitaker is on a different level. Can’t see a middleweight in the rankings that looks like a formidable challenge to his throne if healthy. Perhaps Darren Till goes up to face him?

Stephens would have won but Dominick was being such a homer saying those weren't illegal strikes. Clear elbows to the back of the head and the knee was questionable too. The first elbow, I'll grant him since Emmitt turned into it but the others...come on Dom. I know he's your boy but really? Legal?

Just loses all credibility with that stuff. Because if it had happened the other way, he'd have been up in arms. Just silly, silly stuff.

It's really hard for these fighters to be impartial when they're behind that analyst desk

The Kevin Lee/Tony Ferguson incident comes to mind lol

The height of professional journalism for sure. Funny as hell but definitely bootleg nonetheless.

Thank you for the correction, brotha!

Freaking Ariel ... haha

He still has to go through USADA too but maybe that's just a formality at this point?

You think he was duped by someone in his camp holding a protein shaker?

I listened to the Podcast on Rogan with Jeff Novitzky (the main USADA sleuth). They brought up the fact that a lot of drugs/supplements are mixed in big vats over in China. There's a possibility that they made a batch of roids, didn't thoroughly clean the vats and mixed in say some coke. We all know how much Bones loves to party.

Novitzky of all people was saying that the fact that the steroid Jones was caught quickly leaves your system meant it made little sense that such trace amounts that were found at the weigh in while the samples taken a few days before and after passed. He literally had no benefit from it.
