  • Fantastic card

    Davis v Costa was a cracker

    So too Muhammad v Millender and Frevola v Turner

    Krylov on the way up

    Jouban robbed

    Rountree Jr massively improved

    Gastelum made the fatal mistake of trying to take Adesanya down when he was ready to be felled.

    Fair play to Adesanya, Championship finish in the Championship round.

    And Poirier deservedly took the unanimous decision.

    Great night.



  • @Duluth said in UFC:

    Adesanya passes another test with ease.

    Some huge fights coming for him against fighters in the top five. I'm hoping hoping for a New Zealandish title fight with Whittaker in a year or so

    Nice soothsaying there @Duluth!!

    So cool that it was a fight for the ages too. So now we wait for the fight against Whittaker!



  • I have watched Izzy's* fight several times. Just amazing from both guys. Many fights would have been stopped in that last 20 seconds but Gastelum deserved to be there at the end.

    I loved the whole card. Best in ages.

    What's with Israel's this week? Izzy Dagg calls time, Izzy Falou self destructs and Izzy Adesanya elevates.



  • Two very good cards back to back.

    And some significant changes in rankings.



  • Very average card from Ottawa but the Cowboy v Raging Al fight was a cracker.

    Going into the fight Al said Cowboy was looking old & slow.

    Al can thank his lucky stars he didn't face the younger version, he wouldn't have gotten out of the ring alive.

    Al out thought & out fought.

    Cowboy v McG next?

    Yes please



  • @MiketheSnow

    That was impressive from Cowboy.

    I was expect Al to win.. I thought there were signs that Cowboys chin was getting questionable in the last couple of years (maybe it was just an issue with the bigger hitters at welterweight?)
    So I was expecting Al to catch him at some stage and get a KO

    Well Al caught him a few times and Cowboy didn't get rocked too badly

    Credit to Cerrone for the 24th minute too. Well up on the score card and he took a few risks going for the finish

    @MiketheSnow said in UFC:

    Cowboy v McG next?

    Yes please

    I like it for a few reasons:

    • Conor should not be getting a title shot, or even a number one contender fight, when he returns. He hasn't won in the octagon since 2016.
    • Cowboy deserves a big pay day and it's unlikely he's going on a title run at this stage of his career.
    • It's a fun fight

    It's a no lose scenario for Cowboy.

    He wins, he's beaten McG, straight to Title shot and Hall of Fame
    He loses, he's lost to one of the best, gets a huge pay day, and straight to Hall of Fame



  • @Duluth Yea I had raging Al as the favourite given his dominant win over Kevin Lee last outing and his respectable showing against Khabib. Gotta love Cowboy though and enjoy him while hes still fighting. He can walk straight into the movie industry when he retires! What a character...



  • So Edgar gets a title shot vs Holloway

    Booo! It should have been the Aussie Volkanovski

    I wasn't expecting Volkanovski to beat Aldo on the weekend but he fofought a great tactical fight. He constantly kept Aldo busy, particularly with the little leg kicks, and Aldo never got into his rhythm

    • Aldo was the number one contender
    • Only three people have beaten Aldo in the UFC - Conor McGregor, Max Holloway and now Alexander Volkanovski
    • Volkanovski has one of the longest active win streaks in the UFC having won all 7 of his fights

    But no, Edgar gets the title shot..

    The rationale is that the Holloway vs Edgar fight was scheduled and cancelled before. To me it looks like the UFC wants Holloway to have an easier fight coming off that Poirier loss
