Anyone watch this weekends card ?

It was fairly shite to be honest apart from Khabib vs Barboza, that was a brutal beatdown, his corner should have really thrown in the towel after the second round to be honest.

Have a feeling they're going to try to make Tony vs Khabib (again) in the hopes that Khabib wins, although both are risky fights for McGregor I imagine him and the UFC see Khabib as the more marketable fight.


Watched the two main events alright. Holmes/Cyborg was really dull. She lasted the 5 rounds and fair play and all but she had nothing for Cyborg at any point. I saw Holly go for the kick she got rhousey with 2 or 3 times and missing badly.
Not sure who will be much challenge for Cyborg atm

Khabib just destroyed Barboza, again the fact he lasted as long as he did was nuts. Like you said surprised his side didn't throw in the towel after R1.
Barboza was smothered non stop then a hail of elbow to the face over and over.

Khabib and Tony both hinting they have a fight booked. Nate and Conor posting lots of training photos. at least we'll have some movement in the LW division relatively soon. It would be good if Conor got stripped and they did Khabib V Tony, it would bruise his ego not actually holding any belts so he'd come back to fight pretty quick. though it's highly likely the UFC would let him keep it for another while on the sidelines while Tony defends the interim. hopefully it's all cleared up soon.

Anyone watch that press conference tonight with Max/Frankie and Tony/Khabib.

Dana White said Tony's the champ and the winner is the undisputed champion but refused to answer whether Conor has actually been stripped or not.

Absolute shitshow.

Wouldnt be surprised if they made Mcgregor interim champ.

He's more worried about his cash cow than the actual sport at this stage. I'd say the new owners aren't far off that either.

He'll eventually be stripped of it and maybe mid to late 2018 he'll eventually come back for another 'super' fight but it'll be the 3rd match with Diaz :roll:
That or he'll randomly decide he wants to fight again but instant title shot.
His 'mystique' is all but gone at this stage, the only way he could really get it back is if he came back and knocked the fuck out of Tony and Khalabib.

I think the UFC's plan is for Khabib to get a massive buzz around him by beating Tony and getting the belt and then Conor returns to fight him for his comeback fight in September when Khabib is finished Ramadan. Rumours abound that that fight could be in Russia but nothing solid on that yet.

Buzzing for tonight's main event. We'll find out who the real baddest man on the planet is. I'm favouring Stipe.

Spoilers below for 220

************************

SSTTTTTEEEPPPPPPEEEE!!!!!

Fell asleep and woke up at the start of round 2 but watched R1 again a little while later.

Well happy for Stipe, guys a class act and a great fighter, he had the cardio to last and even look like he could deliver throughout. Gotta love how he took the belt off Dana at the end and gave it to his trainer to put on him.. Dana and the UFC were so in love with Ngannou they really didn't do much for Stipe throughout. Dominated ever round 8)

Ngannou even said in one or two interviews that he wouldn't be able for 5 rounds.. he was fucked after the first round. Still dangerous with the odd bomb but jesus in round 4 Stipe threw something like 40 strikes and Ngannou have 0. It wasn't overly active but Ngannou had nothing by the 2nd round bar the odd bomb.

Good card last night.

Happy to see Cormier win after all the bullshit surrounding Jon Jones. Thought he was going to announce his retirement when he was kneeling down during the post fight interview.

Glad to see Stipe win too, apart from just being a cool guy I always find myself rooting against fighters that the UFC are trying to hype up :lol:.
The first round was amazing, the rest was kind of boring but I suppose that's Heavyweight.

The Featherweight fight before Cormier/Volkan was class too.

Yeah most heavy weight fights go down in the first 2 rounds with a big dirty knock out, when they go to 5 its pretty dull but Stipe's game plan was spot on for it.

Did you watch the fighter interviews afterwards, you could see at the start Stipe is still a bit wound up over all the hype Ngannou was getting. He settled down after a few mins but you know it was bothering him.
