Not sure about Winn v Meerschaert. Winn is the DC trained 5ft6 middleweight. Unimpressed with him so far but he gets a lot of hype.

Winn looks silly once again. He doesn't look UFC standard. Too small for middleweight. 

If it wasn't for DC, i don't think he'd have been signed.

Really thought he would win that. Magny is a decent middle order gatekeeper. No easy meal ticket for young lions.

Cashed out my bet before that one luckily.

Has Woodley ever fought Romero?

 

That would be a total strikes of 6 between them.

Woodley is a welterweight.

Yoel has a long history of gassing so he was obviously trying to keep some back for the later rounds. 

Clearly didn't work though.

That was a terrible fight. I think the decision was right but very little action, 

 

I don’t get Romero not going balls to the walls for the final round. 
 

I don’t want to see Romero in other title fight. Missed weight previously and didn’t want to seem to engage, I get he’s looking for the counter strike but you need to engage, 


Romero clamming he was trying to fight is a joke. 

 

Most disappointed I have been in a fight in a long time, Awful, awful fight.

Why is anybody even talking about the Stylebender v Yoel matchup.

 

The Women's title fight was amazing

Since it was such a disappointment. On paper that had the making of a great fight and we got a Silva v Maia type fight. It was horrid, the first few min of Romero standing still with a high hands summed the thing up for me. 
 

I agree the women’s fight was amazing. However, if I’m brutally honest I’ve never really warmed to women fighting. Don’t get me wrong they are incredibly skilful and put on some tremendous fights but never warmed to it in the slightest. 
 

Maybe it’s some form of ‘sexism’ that I don’t like seeing women knock the **** out of each other. Though I suspect it’s a bit like the reasons I’ve never really warmed  to lightest men’s weight divisions the size, lack of depth and tendency for fights to be more likely go the distance. The lack of power makes it a slightly different sport imo, as stupid as that sounds.

 

Mighty Mouse is arguably the best MMA artist, we’ve ever had and just couldn’t/can’t get excited for anything he done🤷🏻‍♂️
 

IMO the biggest achievement from Conor MCGregor was to get people hyped for that featherweight division. Which in turn shone a lot of light on the lower weight classes,

I'm looking forward to Tony v Khabib, then Tony v Conor. 

Khabib and his crew bullying folk again, then playing the victim card when returned in kind. Tony's family this time.

I really like Tony such an exciting fighter.If he wins it really opens up the division for so many exciting fights , proper wars if he loses though Khabib just continues to dominate everyone until he retires.

The Women's title fight was amazing 

 It was supposed to be the main event and a style match-up that should have been the counter striker vs the unpredictable striker.  It was why I was mentioning Woodley.  One of his fights was boring as hell.  Can't remember who it was against, as most of his fights are boring.

 

The women's fight was amazing though. Joanna is a monster for fighting on in that state.   Amazing technical fight and shows how far the women's game has come on.  One of the best fights I have seen for a long time.  It shows you the difference when the match ups are on merit rather than income, or who people want to see.  Or recently, who Connor wants to fight.

 

Looking forward to Khabib vs Tony.  Really like them both, so kinda don't want either to lose.  Again, on paper it should be a good match-up.

 Is that who it was against?

 

I've watched a few of Woodley's fights and they were all boring.  Yeah, he was winning, but he was the worst champion when he was defending the title.  I think there was like 3 fights in a row that were boring as hell.   Yeah, you don't wanna get knocked out or submitted (like last night) but he was always boring to watch. 

 

Glad he eventually lost.

I think that was the problem last night.  Stylebender usually goes on the offensive, but now he is champion, his game has changed.

She sure is, the slow -mo replay of her getting punched straight in the forehead when it was already like the above photo was brutal, but she just kept going and almost got her with the spinning fist at the end.

I honestly thought the Doctors should have stepped in and assessed that before allowing her to continue .

 

Do they not have that in UFC or do they just let the fighter continue until they are pan breed?

They do but it must be impeding their ability to fight and defend themselves or dangerous to their well-being.

This wasn't really either of those.

 

The injury to Rodolfo Vieira's eye was way more dangerous IMO.

Kind of think Adesanya was more timid than Romero.

Agree with the judges decision though. Romero didn't do enough. He left too much in the gas tank and I'm pretty sure he'll come to regret his game plan.

Adesanya Romero was pretty boring to watch but the right decision. Romero came out and for the first minute didnt move! He cant complain because the other fighter didnt engage in his plan and his post match chat was embarrassing. It takes two to scrap and he done sweet FA.

tonights event is weird as ****.

 

Brazilian crowds are usually among the loudest and there has been some good fights but its totally quiet due to no fans in attendance.

 

however you can clearly hear the coaches barking orders to their fighters constantly which is usually mostly drowned out. I knew they did some but I didn't realise how much coaching goes on during the fight.
