Can't believe people really pay money to watch shorty wash clearly over matched opponents.

UFC continues to make some questionable choices when it comes to title fights.

Not that Tate stood a chance in hell either but this is just sad what the UFC has become

Na man, they should do Pettis vs Barboza 8o

post #12277 of 34018

I thought I heard something where Barboza was looking at fighting in Nov and wanted Alvarez, Pettis, or Khabib. But Pettis wouldn't be ready for a Nov fight.

The Muay Thai specialist always expects a striking battle in his UFC fights, and believes match-ups against Alvarez or former champion Pettis would please the fans. However, he believes he has to be ready to face anyone if he wants to win the UFC title one day.

 

"Fans always prefer to watch standup wars. Pettis and Eddie Alvarez like this type, but it’s a MMA fight," he said. "I’m ready to fight anywhere, so I won’t pick and choose based on their style. Anyone, I’m ready."

 

Cerrone, who beat Barboza in 2014, will get the next shot at 155-pound champion Rafael dos Anjos, while both Pettis and Nurmagomedov recover from injuries. Alvarez recently defeated Gilbert Melendez in Mexico City, while Michael Johnson, who suffered a controversial decision loss to Beneil Dariush last Saturday, defeated Barboza via decision in February.

Let's be real though, they would ALL be snoozefests besides Cyborg. Let's get that out of the way first

 

With that being said, Holm definitely aint ready nor does she deserve a shot over Tate. On that same point, Tate got dominated twice sooooo I mean the options are limited

 

Overall Dana and company are just making these fights with no dambs given to rankings or contender ladders

Barboza/Pettis would be perfect IMO

"We were talking about Miesha from the start, then as we started sitting around we were saying, ‘Everyone has seen the Miesha fight already,' " White said. "A third fight in a rivalry usually comes after the stuff we'd see in [Arturo] Gatti-[Micky] Ward. With Miesha, the result has been the same twice. Everyone's already seen that fight."

 

White told the LA Times that he would prefer Tate fight Amanda Nunes next. Nunes is on a two-fight winning streak and is another top contender.

 

"Theres two sides to the coin," White said. ... "I'm not sure losing another fight to Ronda so soon would be good for Miesha. She's not going anywhere. I think she'll be fine."

 

"Everyone has jitters in their first fight. Holly came back from that and destroyed a woman who'd looked damn good in her previous fights," White said. "When you talk about the possibilities of what Holly can do ... she's a world-class boxer ... the Holly Holm fight for Ronda is way more intriguing."

So what I took from that is Dana Whtie wants to protect Tate from another loss but is fine with throwing Holly to the wolves. Makes no sense.

I took it more as finding a fresh opponent for Ronda, not a third fight with Tate

 

Honestly nobody wanted to see Tate a third time so I get it but Holm for sure isn't ready

 

His point on Tate is that if she lost, which SHE WOULD HAVE, her career ultimately would be over. Losing three times to her, you're done. Holm can lose and still stick around since she would have only lost once

post #12289 of 34018
I wanted to see a third fight because I know at least Miesha would hit her with some bombs. holm's offense will be to hit her with sidekicks the whole time.

Holm aint doing squat to threaten her

 

I would have liked to see Cat return and beat someone so we could get that rematch

post #12291 of 34018
Over under she makes it out the first round?
post #12292 of 34018
Ur being generous, over/unDer a minute Is more appropriate

This is garbage btw, I would rather see tate 3 all day

I asked a few pages back where Cat was for this very reason.
post #12295 of 34018
Cat just needs to relax a little bit longer and use my face as a seat.

Seems Ferguson really impressed with his win over Thompson.

Probably going to be a long night but it will be good experience.
post #12297 of 34018
So disappointed by the Holms/Rhousey matchup. The women's 135 and Men's 135/125 division are so shallow right now. Holms is clearly not ready. I don't think I've even seen her grappling/ground game.

They should give Tate the Cyborg fight at 140 catch weight. Gives Cyborg a shot to get down to 135 or test the waters to see the publics interest.
post #12298 of 34018
When Ronda does fight cyborg, she will walk right thru Cyborg.

I'm guessing they're going to make the Cyborg fight for UFC 200 next July

 

Ronda was going to destroy whoever she fought at 135 anyway and you're right, she could walk through Cyborg too

post #12300 of 34018

holm might get destroyed faster than any of ronda's previous opponents. this fight and women's MMA is a joke right now.

 

 

and I agree with Gunna. I want to see the fight, but I still believe Ronda would run through Cyborg.
