Desperation and urgency higher than ever in Cerrone. Soften Miller's body, force him to drop his hands. Fake punch as diversion, head kick from the same side.

Story's weight and strength advantage were almost unfair.

Barboza's right body kick was glancing. Didn't even land flush and Dunham is a tough customer.

Salas really should have won his fight. He was landing heavy leather through two rounds before getting caught with the short, counter left hook.

"Broke" Cerrone is a dangerous fighter. He may make his goal of 6 fights this year. I guess Khabib is next for him.

 

@ChampCruThik did you end up going to the fights?

Cowboy and Miller were the only ones asking Dana for Khabib. Cerrone is dialed-in, extremely focused and supremely deadly with his knees and kicks.

Had to pass. Two other jobs, one of which I'm reporting to at 9 AM. My MMA/boxing coverage and writing is third-income.

Miller has a tough chin and is a tough SOB to not have his lights go out on that head kick. That **** was right on the money.

Great grappler and underrated dirty boxing, but Miller is cursed with being very good. Not great. Not quite good enough to challenge for a title with the depth of the division.

man its crazy to see how far MMA and the UFC has come. fox sports does a great job providing a professional platform for MMA. i still remember going to blockbuster in the mid 90s begging my dad to rent me the latest UFC because that was the only way to watch. :lol oh how times have changed.

Cowboy pretty much in the same boat as Miller. Dudes string out long win streaks but can't quite clinch it. Cerrone aint gonna beat any of the top dudes (Pettis, Benson etc.) and he's my favorite fighter. I would love to see him get revenge on Nate, as much as I love Nate it was tough seeing Cowboy getting owned. That would be my dream match stylistically. It's probably going to be Khabib though.

 

Nate trashing Cowboy on Twitter recently too lol

 

Nathan Diaz         @NateDiaz209 Follow

Some people just suck way too much #UFCdick ... An they where cowboy hats

 
Got a bunch of crazy fights at lightweight:
 
Benson vs. RDA
Thomson vs. Green
Pettis vs. Melendez
 
Sheesh
post #3369 of 41107

 

If this happens I expect to see Cerrone rag dolled for 3 rounds. I think his best chance would be in rounds 4 & 5 cause Khabib slows down a lot in the 3rd round. 

 

I missed all of the fights last night except for Cerrone/Miller but I expected to see the highlights on SportsCenter cause no other big time games were going on. Instead they did a bunch of espy recap, summer league highlights, a triple a all star game highlights, and even showed highlights from the wnba, but no ufc. Idk if it was ESPN or ufc's choice cause of their contract with fox, but I think they missed a huge opportunity to be heavily featured on SC.

hell yeah lets do khabib vs cerrone. 

 

 

khabib is a beeeeeast. dude will be the UFC LW champion soon.

I'd rather see Bendo/Khabib personally.

Kind of bizarre they have Bendo at #1 contender in the UFC.

Khabib at 4.

Cerrone at 6.

Yet the commentators are saying Khabib vs. Cerrone for a title shot against Pettis/Melendez winner?

That's bad math.
post #3373 of 41107
dana probably gave them a mathematical equation to figure out the contender. Answer always ends up being whoever the ufc feel like giving a title shot.
post #3374 of 41107

I'd be in favor for Khabib/Bendo too. Probably won't happen cause ufc likes protecting title contenders (like Gus not fighting DC).

 

Bendo wanted the Khabib fight. When UFC asked him to fight Rustam Khabilov he thought it was Khabib.

yeah... if showtime ends up like cruz

 

otherwise, nope

post #3376 of 41107
Loved what I saw from Cowboy last night. Dude is a freight train right now. Don't like the Khabib fight for him though, I see Nurmy tossing him across the cage with relative ease.

I'm a total McGregor mark, getting amped up for this weekend. Might even crack and buy Fight Pass just to check it out laugh.gif

His walk and talk video with Helwani is a great watch if you have a spare hour. Dont know if it will embed but here is the link.

khabib would wreck showtime if they did fight for the title. horrible match up for pettis. it would be like the clay guida fight except worse. all these delayed fights suck. :{

Rankings are all mucked up because Bendo beat Cerrone twice already, so it's tough to rank Cerrone anywhere near the #1 spot even though he is on a pretty nice win streak. On top of that, Bendo has quality wins against Thomson (albeit a bit controversial) and Khablov. Further complicating things is the fact that RDA completely dominated Cerrone recently.

 

If Cerrone gets by Khabib then he for sure deserves a shot even though Bendo may have deserved a shot at Khabib before Cerrone.

 

Very twisted at 155

post #3379 of 41107

But Cerrone just got beat by Pettis

post #3380 of 41107
Thread Starter 

Cerrone got beat by a lot of folks lol. He got dominated by all three of RDA, Pettis, Nate, lost to Bendo twice in the WEC.

 

However he's put himself in a position for a title shot, 4 straight finishes against legit opponents and with another win against everyone's favorite Khabib, you can't deny Cerrone a title shot. Everytime Cerrone got beat he went out and redeemed himself the very next fight.

 

It's crazy how he's put himself in this position but you can't deny him if he gets past Khabib. Like I said, Bendo perhaps deserved the shot against Khabib to begin with but what's done is done. If Bendo defeats RDA he perhaps just waits it out and his next fight could be for the title anyway.

post #3381 of 41107
Yes yes yes.

Lighweight division won't be that complicated if the belt is being/has been defended, I think laugh.gif

Yeah just heard that too. Sucks for Khabib. The Khabib/Cerrone deal to fight was done then Khabib blew his knee out 20 mins after they finished it. Dana said Cerrone will fight someone else soon but a Nate Diaz rematch is "ridiculous"

 

UFC meeting with Carano on Monday. If they come to an agreement she will get the next title shot against Rousey in December. Gina is getting the shot because Dana thinks she did a damn good job against Cyborg and Cyborg was jacked up on "Mountain Dew" back then. 

 

Nate isn't getting a new deal. He got upset after Gilbert signed his new deal but he's not a "needle mover" so he's not getting a new deal. "If Nate Diaz was a massive needle mover we would have called him by now." Just my opinion but the more and more we see this back and forth between UFC and Nate about money, the smaller of the chances I think we see the proposed Silva/Diaz fight. Either Nick is not gonna wanna deal with them until they take care of Nate or he's gonna want an even higher amount to kick back to Nate.

 

They wanna make Weidman/Belfort next and like the idea of it being in Brazil but doesn't know if they can make Belfort's 1st fight after TRT there.

Smh at Khabib blowing out his knee, Cerrone aint got nobody to fight now. I'd like to see him face the winner of Bendo/RDA or Thomson/Green.

The weigh ins were nuts. McGregor is a psycho 

post #3387 of 41107
I don't like either fighter, but mcgregor needs a double serving of humble pie.

The atmosphere at weigh ins when Conor took to the scales mean.gif

Fully expecting a cage invasion if he gets a K.O/TKO

I honestly hope he destroys Brandao to continue to build the hype train and then see someone like Diamond, Zombie or Cub just humiliate him
