Yeah I'm basically used to it now but I used to be strictly pride back in the day, every event really felt like an EVENT, production value was crazy. Too late for the UFC to switch it up now tho I guess.

To me it reminded me of the old WWF WCW competition.. Always good to have 2 top organizations
post #9994 of 34246
Yeah, competition is always good. Especially for fighters since they'll have more options. bellator is turning into a joke though.

Bellator is already a joke...
post #9996 of 34246

I actually get what Bellator is doing. They have to put on freak show fights like Kimbo v Shamrock, and sign fighters past their prime like Tito, Koscheck, etc so they can try and draw viewers. But they've been low-key signing some big time prospects like Ed Ruth and Aaron Pico. But no one is gonna tune in to watch them or even Chandler fight. But they do for Kimbo, Tito, etc.

He was his usual confident self but not over the top.

I will say....because of this, I realized what a great ambassador he can be for the sport when he's not overdoing it.

Suit was clean. Charismatic. Personable.

Chaels a tool. Point blank period. Not the guy you want repping the sport. Especially after getting caught cheating 57 times. (Not that the ufc or their fans care)

I meant Conor.

It was a linear thought in my head laugh.gif

I seriously think after Aldo washes Conor, he should ask for a title shot at 155.

Didn't think Jose would wash Conor 100% healthy so with that apparently badly injured rib, I give Conor even more of a chance. Seems like analysts and fighters are starting to get with the idea that Jose will lose his title. The latest being Rashad and Weidman

 

Seeing Chad hang in there for 5 rounds standing up, without even threatening takedowns factors in big for me. Conor's striking is superior to Chad's

Didn't he say he was making a big announcement after he won this fight a while back?

I too hope this is it.

Wow I can't believe this crap... No respect for Aldo..
post #10014 of 34246

Now im conflicted. Wanted Connor to beat the hell out of Aldo, but Mendes is one of my favorites and a local guy so i can't root against him

There is literally no reason Mendes should be the choice over Frankie :rollin Pathetic by the UFC. And even more pathetic that this is for the interim title. Complete trash

 

"At the end of the day we looked also at…look, Mendez is formally ranked No. 1 ahead of McGregor," he said. "It would have been a little weird if we picked Frankie and then Chad would say, but I’m number one. Not that we always go distinctly by one, two or three, but both guys were available, and he was number one and Frankie was number two. I think looking at Mendes’ past performances [helped]. That fight last fall against Aldo [at UFC 179] was one of the great fights in UFC history. In his last fight against Lamas he blew right through the guy. And it was like, you know what, he’s got the momentum we feel like, and we feel like he deserves it. 

"And quite honestly, it was funny because I was literally sitting in my office, and I was on Twitter or something and I think [MMA Fighting’s] Luke Thomas tweeted something like, ‘one thing I know is not going to happen today is they’re not going to announce that Mendes is the replacement.’ And I was like, it’s Mendes."

McGoat FTW.

He won the fight mentally and got Aldo shook. I train UFC too and I never cried at the gym unlike Aldo.
