Next up: Penn vs Yair

 

Welp

 

Guessing Yair gets tentative fighting against the legend and wins a boring decision

Dana talked to FS1 last night after the fight.. I don't believe anything Dana says lol

 

“TJ Dillashaw said the whole thing was rigged, so I think I’m going to give the rematch to Dominick Cruz just to make him right,” White said with a laugh on the FS1 post-fight show.

 

“Dillashaw came in tonight, Lineker is a tough fighter, if you watched the Lineker fight against [John] Dodson, he went after Dodson all night,” White said. “He didn’t dare go after Dillashaw that way because he was being taken down with ease. That takedown made him gun shy. He didn’t want to throw the hands or run after him. Dillashaw made it look easy against a very tough guy, a scary guy that can knock you out at any moment.

 

“Dillashaw is a total conspiracy theorist and says next in line, but yes, he’s probably next in line for the title.”

 

“Garbrandt looked better than he ever looked in his career. Dominick Cruz is great, Dominick Cruz is amazing, and Cody Garbrandt made it look easy tonight. He was the complete opposite of what everybody thought he was going to be. Everybody thought he was this hothead, angry guy who was going to just run in and look for the knockout punch. Couldn’t be more opposite, he looked incredible.”

Just listened to Dom's presser and he is a class act even in defeat. He is really intelligent, well spoken and articulates his thoughts very well.

Him putting on a hat and throwing a poké ball at cyborg immediately after he fractured his skull with a knee might be the funniest thing i've ever seen in mma.

I think Pena will a good match up for Nunes and will beat her for the belt. Her wrestling might be the difference maker. I was really surprised that she was able to dominate Cat like that. She just has to get past Valentina.

Page is a fool for that one, dude gives zero dambs

And yeah it sucks for the pioneers, they were getting paid next to nothing. It is what it is. Some of them got hooked up with jobs where they probably don't do ish

Liddell will never have to buy another drink or lapdance again for the rest of his life. Must be awesome when he parties in Vegas.

But those pioneers were able to have individual sponsors that would make up for the little money. Wasn't gsp getting couple mil from UA? And jones/Silva from Nike?

Even still you had to be in the 1% for that type of money, rest of the fighters didn't have access to those type of opportunities.

Dana a ***** for not letting fighters make money from outside sponsors.


Boxing gets **** on a lot for its infrastructure and politics (rightfully so) but lower level guys in boxing still eat better than lower level UFC guys.

Tired of Woodley calling out everyone when he hasn't even beaten Wonderboy yet.
I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people.

I remember woodley saying he doesn't know why thomson was asking for a rematch. Uhh, probably because it was a close fight.

Too many fighters nowadays begging for fights against bigger names. How bout you try to make yourself a big name also.
post #35869 of 36384
There was nothing close about that fight. Woodley beat the wonder out of that boy

I'm hoping they put Maia or Cowboy (if he beats Jorge) up next against Woodley

 

Maia deserves it but Dana might screw him because he isn't a draw

 

I don't care to see Wonderboy rematch, get someone new in there

post #35872 of 36384
I'm one of the biggest honda haters you'll find, but those fools over in general thinking honda won't judo throw them on their head because they weigh more than her. I hope that one guy claiming he wants to go to an mma gym and challenge one of their females to a fight actually does it. Or just find a female krav maga instructor who'll be happy to beat him down.

Skeptical hippo regarding Schaub's claims of 100k+ sponsorship deals

Ronda Rousey thanks fans, says she'll take time to decide next move

A day after losing to bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in Las Vegas, Ronda Rousey said she will "need to take some time to reflect and think about the future."

"I want to say thank you to all of my fans who have been there for me in not only the greatest moments but in the most difficult ones. Words cannot convey how much your love and support means to me," Rousey said in a statement provided to ESPN.

Rousey battered, stopped in first round by Nunes

Ronda Rousey's return to the Octagon was over almost as soon as it began Friday, as champion Amanda Nunes rocked her with repeated blows and earned a TKO victory just 48 seconds in at UFC 207.
Rousey exits UFC 207 as she entered: quickly and quietly

As Ronda Rousey navigates an uncertain future, her handling of defeat was more telling than any of her victories, after she shut out the media before and after her UFC 207 loss to Amanda Nunes.
Ronda Rousey lost her own way

Ronda Rousey doesn't apologize for her ambitions, Ramona Shelburne writes. But when Rousey fell apart after losing to Holly Holm, she was in a state that even she had a hard time handling.

"Returning to not just fighting, but winning, was my entire focus this past year. However, sometimes -- even when you prepare and give everything you have and want something so badly -- it doesn't work how you planned. I take pride in seeing how far the women's division has come in the UFC and commend all the other women who have been part of making this possible, including Amanda.

"I need to take some time to reflect and think about the future. Thank you for believing in me and understanding."

The fight against Nunes marked Rousey's first appearance in the Octagon since losing to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015.

The 135-pound championship fight Friday night headlined UFC 207 at T-Mobile Arena, but it was over quickly.

Referee Herb Dean stopped the fight just 48 seconds in. Rousey did not go unconscious, as she did from Holm's head kick, but she was essentially out on her feet. It marked the fastest knockout finish of Nunes' 14-4 career.

Rousey, 29, walked out of the Octagon without assistance. She did not address the cameras or media afterward.

Information from ESPN's Brett Okamoto was used in this report.

what's bellator's policy? i remember mitrione saying he'd make more off sponsorship than what he would've from ufc

i always cringe when the fighters are asking for that bonus/fight of the night/etc. pay them enough so guys don't have to beg for that constantly. are the top guys eligible for those bonuses? it would suck for a lower level guy and not get it and someone like conor getting Performance of the night when he is already getting a few million. Sure, he had a a hell of a performance but that extra 50k is nothing to him, but would be everything for someone else

^listening to joe rogan, he was saying that ufc wants to have khabib fight in russia for the belt, but conor probably doesn't want that fight.
tony is willing only if he gets paid the same amount, but ufc told him he has to fight out his current contract. i guess if khabib is really offering 200k, i'd see why not. guess they going to have an interim bout in russia laugh.gif
