Easy with the jinx material homies!!!

Stephens is gonna take a lot of punishment to get into the pocket with Zabit so him getting pieced up seems the most likely outcome to me. If he can walk through the fire he'll have to and have enough to wear down the upstart, good on him.


Bahaahahah!! That's why i never buy a fight till right before

Two "adverse drug test findings" but still cleared to fight.

Over it.


If you're a fighter just juice and if you get caught take the 2 year suspension to train and when you come back just say it was the same stuff

Lawler was too nice after Askren got his head smashed on that overhead body drop...

Was a legal move? Even if the fighter landed on his head?

I was sure .. sure.. Askren was gonna fall 30 seconds after he got up from those bombs..

Lawler went out momentarily.. For fighter safety Herb, I think, did the right thing..

did Jones's Father force him to hang from bars from birth

Eight and a half inch reach advantage at the same height?

Smith is a Tyrannosaur?

You and me both. Bodied.

Usman said he’d seen Woodley quit and that’d be the ultimate difference. Prophetic. Rag dolled him on a couple of slams to boot. Nobody is happier for Kamaru than Dana.

Jonny Bones got the W but still couldn’t help taking an illegal knee on a vulnerable and outmatched opponent. This MF. And still got picograms wafting about.

Yes I did!!

No offense to this dude in particular but these long, choreographed signature celebrations are an abomination. Very WWE, IMO. But I’m getting older so maybe I’m just curmudgeoning it.

While I don’t want to gloat over someone’s misfortune, I would hope he rethinks his approach from here, moving forward.

Dana is that you? LOL


Woodley didn't get KOd, but he was dominated for almost every minute of that fight.

Great card!! Did not predict Woodley getting dominated like that beforehand.

He had the same look on his face khabibs opponents do.

Usmans size gave Tyron fits. Tyron needed to throw a lot more combinations like his coaches advised but he was shell shocked by then me thinks.

Bones is still tiers above anybody in lhw. Maybe Johnny walker or Dominic Reyes can get him though when get more experience

Garbrandt is his own worst enemy. No discipline whatsoever lol

Also, Smith is very honorable.

He could have taken the DQ win, gotten the title, and then gotten a rematch. Props to him for taking the high road

Looked to me like he was inside his own head. He couldn't pull the trigger. Usman kept circling away from Woodley's right hand and went for the single leg or the clinch. I'm surprised how easy was for Usman to completely outwrestle Woodley. D2 Champion vs D1 All-American.

Fighters often display this characteristic as they get older. They hesitate and cannot pull the trigger. Woodley will turn 37 soon. He won't have a better chance in the rematch, but he's earned an immediate one imo (not sure Dana will grant him one though).

I don't think the fans want to see it
Woodley could choose a different profession now at this age
and be thankful he survived

That was an incredible beatdown.
The level of commitment and unbridled passion Usman showed
will only intensify in the next fight

5? Rounds. How much damage did Usman take..

Tyron looked Small against him.
Usmans height/reach quickness/training and BELIEF in himself are not things Woodley will overcome between now and next fight

Anthony Smith ,if I heard right, "He didn't fight me, he nullified me"<<some humility.
^^Woodley got nullified also.

According to UFC Stats, Woodley landed just 60 total strikes to a whopping 336 for Usman
