Seen someone on Twitter describe it like playing a 2 player computer game and one of the players controller dying. She had absolutely nothing. Mentally ruined.

Cody really got into Cruz's head in there, really took Cruz completely out of his normal game. Great performance although I could see TJ winning that belt back.

What a card. Don't like Rousey but hard not to feel sorry for her after that.

Had money on Garbrandt to finish Cruz but that was so much more impressive.Delighted he embarrassed him. Can't stand the smug prick.

Cruz might come across as smug but I love listening to him talk about fighting. He's a fucking brilliant analyst as well. The post presser was really good. Just very calm and measured. Said that TJ deserved his shot before he got a rematch.

Khabib vs Ferguson is now for the interim belt. Which is baloney. But it means it's 5 rounds. I'm all for 5 rounds

And might have to do with UFC uncertain if McGregor will hold up another division, if he either fights Welterweight or Mayweather

Delighted about that Kabib v Ferguson fight. That one should be class.

I see Mayweather offered McGregor $15m (vs his own purse of $100m), and a percentage of the back end.

I'd take $15m and a percentage to get the head boxed off me by Mayweather if Conor doesnt want it.

I think Mayweather has subsequently downplayed it Keith, said he's not coming back. Its all bollox that I wish would go away

Also, can't wait for Khabib vs Ferguson. Think Ferguson could pip him

This is getting very stupid. At this rate I might be fighting for a belt in 2018.

I don't really care too much about the outcome, I'd just love to see someone go up against Mayweather and stalk his chin around the ring with laser-focus, and see how they got on.

have you watched the unedited video of McGregor sparring against Van Heerden? He has no business getting in a boxing ring with Mayweather or any high level pro boxer to be honest. there's a reason he didnt make it as a pro boxer

Could it be that McGregor cares less about getting embarrassed than his fans do?

You don't need me to tell you if he does his business right and builds it up properly, he's in for the biggest payday of his life whether he wins or loses.

it's ridiculous isnt it. Miocic last fought in Sept, said he was taking a long break afterwards. Werdum vs Velasquez shouldve been the main contender decider but was pulled and Cain going in for surgery. So Werdum has to fight again presumably before he gets his rematch. Could be looking at April or May at least before Miocic fights again, but there not throuwing around belts in that division

and Aldo last fought in July but has been promoted to disputed Featherweight Champ because the Light Heavyweight Champ (by way of Jon Jones suspension) had to pull out of a fight

It's going to be hilarious when the day comes that an interim champ has to pull out of a unification bout. There's also no reason why it can't be a 5 round fight without a belt bar keeping to current custom.

This is the third time Fergusson vs Nurmagemedov has been scheduled so talk about putting your eggs in a paper basket.

Actually cant wait for the fight.
Hoping for a Khabib win and he drops and leaves the belt on the floor of the ring.

As for McGregor v Mayweather
if it ever does happen you can be damn sure it'll oly happening after years of exhausting and annoying bullshit talk about it.
