Kongo has looked somewhat revived under the Bellator banner. 4-1 record, three of those victories by finish. With that being said, I see this being a potentially boring fight if Lawal goes the cautious route to victory.

Rooting for McGeary. I'd be really impressed if he finished Newton.

If MVP doesn't knockout Millender in the first round and a half, Curtious is going to steal a decision in Connecticut.

@NotoriousLAR, you attending this card in your backyard? I'm beginning to consider it.

Fearing the same, I doubt King Mo elects to trade and bang in the stand-up with Kongo. Lawal has a tendency of utilizing his stifling wrestling more against noteworthy opponents. Far more cognizant of his opponent's strengths instead of imposing his will and seeking a finish. Prime example is the Rampage bout most recently.

Maybe I'm giving Kongo to much credit but I would say he got this easy.

Doubtful, brotha. Moved to BK in January, no plans to head back to CT any time soon.

It's a solid card, but my biggest draw would be the possibility of catching a glimpse of Fedor lumbering around the halls of Mohegan. laugh.gif

Jones vs Johnson and Weidman vs Belfort happening at UFC 187.

 

187 and 189 look like they'll be stacked with two title shots each. So they surrounding cards will probably be lackluster.

187 is also loaded with Cowboy vs. Khabib, Benavidez vs. Moraga, and Browne vs. Arlovski. Absolutely stacked compared to 184.

These cards, JESUS

 

I don't care about bad cards around them because these two are too good. Now we wait for the injuries :{

post #7510 of 34015

If Weidman or Aldo got hurt and had to pull out of their fights I wouldn't be shocked.

post #7511 of 34015
Don't worry brahs, injuries and drug testing will thin out those cards laugh.gif

These cards seem kinda desperate imo.

Each of those fights should easily be able to carry a PPV. Especially the MW and LHW bouts. Those are massive.

Those events will be thinned out by injuries and failed drug tests anyway.

We will complain about any and everything won't we :lol

 

First, cards are too thin now cards are desperate 

post #7518 of 34015

187 and 189 being stacked isn't desperate. Its what I expected. These are the Memorial Day weekend and 4th of July weekend cards. They're always stacked. 

 

Both the M.D weekend and 4th of July cards from last year started out as being stacked. Injuries just killed the cards.

Exactly

 

These are the money dates for the UFC, they trying to duplicate UFC 100

 

Don't see that being desperate I see it as finally giving us what we've been wanting

Yeah i guess that makes sense...

I think i'm just against double headers because i can't handle that level of anxiety in one sitting laugh.gif

Eh, that fight is a few years too late. Kinda like when Chuck finally fought Wand.

Maybe ... But can you name a couple of fighters now that you would rather see against Floyd or even PAC let alone beat them?

May is going to be unreal

 

I am still in disbelief that all of those fights are scheduled to happen

It would be nice to see JMM knock out manny again and see all my Filipino people be depressed.

I wonder if UFC will drop one of those title fights from the May card now and move it to another date. Its supposed to be a huge card for UFC that should bring in a lot of money with ticket sales and at least 800k ppv buys. But now with Mayweather v Pac fighting in the same month it could take away from what ufc wants to accomplish. In the past they've blamed lower than expected ppv buys and slow ticket sales on Mayweather/Pac fights being held right before their event.

post #7527 of 34015

Never compare Chuck/Wand with Mayweather/Pac.... 

 

Chuck got knocked out and lost his belt, then lost to Keith Jardine. Wand meanwhile was coming off two brutal KOs... 

 

Mayweather's undefeated in 40 something fights and is still clowning the competition. Pac did get blasted by Marquez but came back and put on a clinic against Timothy Bradley (undefeated, legit top 5) and then destroyed some up-n-comer... 

 

They are both older now than 5 years ago but they are still the best.

187 is stacked cause they're competing against the May/Paq fight.

After seeing RRR spare I don't think anyone in the division has a chance at beating her. I haven't seen Holly yet to make an inferred opinion though

I peeped the UFC Countdown last night and Rousey looks unreal. Her technique on those throws and going into those armbars in training were scary to witness. Her hands are also evolving, she at least makes hitting pads look real good

 

If she destroys Cat then I'll have a hard time believing she'd lose unless she got content and lazy

 

Some of Holly's fights are on Youtube, she looks pretty good on those KO's but you can't make real conclusions based off the competition. I hope she runs through her opponent to build hype

Exactly.

I need to watch Holly's fights but if Iggy Pop's daughter does run through Cat and Holly then she midas whale fight Conor. The GOAT should not only be a three division champ, but the other gender champ too to solidify his greatness.
