    exactly

    I don’t know what the hell scott is talking about.

    Did Askren talk trash? Sure, he talked plenty of trash. Welcome to fighting. That’s what they do.

    That doesn’t excuse this kind of behavior.

    “wahh, that dude said mean things pre-fight about me”

    if that was the case, every fighter should be acting like a tool after a win.

    Idk man agree to disagree I guess. Maybe my love for Jorge & disdain for Ben is effecting my judgement on this one. Disappointed in the Holm fight. Really thought Holly had a shot at outpointing Nunes. Thought the weight cut would affect Nunes more.

  • yisman

    for the record, I don’t like Askren

    pretty lame for him to duck Lawler after he was awarded a win when he and Lawler both know Askren didn’t win that fight

    Ref should have got there sooner. As a fighter you’re taught to keep going til it’s stopped Some guys – Jacare when he flatlined Weidman comes to mind – pull back and I always respect that. But Masvidal is NOT that guy, right or wrong. I don’t think calling him a greasy Miami born scum fuck helps the argument that he’s classless.

  • Equanimeous

    Betting against Jones to cover Parlay….. This feels like throwing away money, but if he loses ill be kicking myself

    My wife is going to KILL ME when she sees my PPV bill per minute bill !!!

    It’s not that stoppage that bothers me. It’s when he tapped the ring, then stood up and mocked him getting stiffed out while he’s still out on the ground out cold, no idea if he’s okay or not. Even though I don’t like it, I still wouldn’t want the same to happen to Jorge.

    lol per minute bill? That sounds like a different kind of bill

    Might have to wait for Johnny Walker to see Jones lose. And that isn’t even a confident might, just a slightly higher chance then Santos

  • GoldenWolf87

    Whats the ownership for Jon Jones?

  • gje627

    Just kidding….

    Though I was planning to drink a ton of beers and get at least a little buzzed on PPV tonight….

    Given the short fights, now my wife will probably make me watch “A Star is Born” again.

    Good movie, but oh boy …. Not Again !!!

  • scott33

    That was a good stoppage by Goddard on 2nd watch. Damn. Nunes in the last 3 yrs has taken out Tate, Rousey, Valentina (2x), Cyborg, Holm. I remember watching her get stopped by Alexis Davis in Cincy like 8 years ago. Never would’ve thought she’d become the female GOAT. After the Cyborg rematch if it happens I just don’t see anyone who can threaten her. Maybe GDR but idk

  • Kassdog

    54% in the $4

  • iron_tactics

    Nunes knocked out two really tough women in Holms and Cyborg. I don’t think anyone is going to show up and beat her for a long time

    I do understand – it wasn’t respectful. I don’t really care for that kind of behavior either. Fighting is a rough biz. I know it sucks when your guy – or girl – gets sparked, emotions run high when money is on the line. I guess I was just surprised by ppl being surprised by Jorge’s actions. He’s always been that guy.

    Ok Bones quit playin around

  • yisman

    Santos on a compromised leg

    I don’t know that it was “surprised”

    he got called out for being classless

    not like anyone expected him to show class

    showing class would be out of character

    True, but my guy didn’t get sparked, my guy was Jorge, I needed Jorge to win money wise and was rooting for Jorge and have been his last few fights, i’m not a fan of Ben at all. I think he went down the wrong road on this one though and really crossed the line.

  • iron_tactics

    Literal flying fucking Knee there, almost went out of the ring

  • thevogaman

    2 to 1 Santos for me

    I knew I should have clarified this when I said it, but I didn’t – so that is my fault. I included that part to give benefit of the doubt for the greasy Miami born comments that you did not make.
