JBJ is on another level. He shut down Gus from the beginning. The fight was never in doubt. Once he got him down, it was painful to see how bad Gus was on the mat.

Him and Nunes are so far ahead of anyone in their divisions, its almost not fun watching them.. too easy.

Jones is built to not lose in the Ufc. Because of his intangibles.

He has such a long reach. 84.5. With long legs.

Put it this way. He has a 14 inch reach advantage over cornier.

Gustafson who was 1 inch taller still had a 7 inch reach disadvantage.

Because of his superior reach and athleticism he cannot be Beaten.
He can wrestle and has smart coaches.

Jones should be in heavyweight.

I wonder who would win a fight between

Jon Jones in his prime vs Fedor in his prime.

Jones has more height etc but Fedor was s bad ass and could do well

LH division is this and there are no marque matchups for jones. DC will never see 205 again, so really the only option for jones is HW and potential matchups vs DC, Cain or JDS. Personally I think he would have lots of trouble with Cain if he's near his former self.

Anybody watch the Mayweather fight with the Japanese dude? Looked staged as fuck, LMAO.

Floyd got paid 9 million.

9 million for fighting a guy half his size for one.

But seriously how stupid are ppl now with this superfight bs.

Are ppl really lacking this much that to entertain themselves they need to watch a 41 year old man fight a complete bum in Asia?

Like what are these ppl thinking??

Clearly the promoters have done a good job of brainwashing ppl into buying into this super fight money bullshit.

Even khabib management is saying they don’t want to fight Tony Ferguson because he doesent sell enough pay per views.

The actual belts etc are an after thought.

Lesnar coming back is a joke.

If I was Brock I would show up to fight cornier and lie on the ground and first time cornier even touched me I would tap.

Why even fight? If it’s for only money just do what the Asian guy did and take a dive.

So Dana is saying khabib vs Mcgregor will happen this year.

I’m assuming Ferguson will get left out again and Mcgregor undeservingly gets a rematch.

If so I think we can all agree that it’s the end of the Ufc as a combat league and the start of an attraction league in which most popular fighters rule.

How can anyone taje this sport seriously when it’s so biased and a few marketable fighters run w eruthjnv

If I’m Bellator I’m raiding the Ufc and going after their disgruntled fighters.

I figure Bellator should
Those numbers are trash

Lower level fighters must have jobs.

Because how do you train all week pay for trainers supplements drugs etc. Travel hotel.

The 38,000 or so is Peanuts.

I guess only fighters that make money are top level Guys.
 

Sammy Meatballs

It's Not A Lie, If You Believe It...
Bellator should aggressively go after fighters like Poirier Diaz and even such a tony Ferguson who they refuse to respect.

It would be the right move. To sign the fighters.

If Ufc only is hungry for pay per view buys then other fighters will all jump ship.

The Ufc pays all lower level fighters peanuts and isn’t giving legitimate contenders their earned matches.

Mcgregor and Lesnar jumping the line tinfught Kgabib and cormier instead of Ferguson and Miocic is a travesty.

The Ufc is primarily composed of lower to mid tier matches. They make up the bulk of the pay per views.

Perhaps the fighters aren’t thinking right. The Low to mid tier guys hold all the power.

How can Ufc just have pay per view matches if the rest of the fighters bolt?

With this model of Ufc which is all money.

I bekieve a company like Bellator could compete by creating Bellator as the league that creates fair matches. Gives legitimate contenders the matches they earned.

This is a way that Bellator could legitimatize themselves at the expense of the Ufc which is basically turned into a wall street fight league

Looking forward to this card. Crazy how TJ lost so much weight. He looks almost unhealthy. The Cerrone fight should be good. Remember the last time a young buck Mike Perry was talking shit, the old man broke his arm lol. This young punk doesn't respect Cerrone either.

Greg Hardy fighting. Hate that pos. Main event TJ vs Cejudo will be good.

Worry about the weight cut on TJ. He cut like 30 lbs in 3 months, he looks shredded AF but how will it affect his endurance in a 5 round fight. Don’t see him stopping Cejudo, can he stop the takedowns?

Cerrone is live. Know nothing on his opponent, but Donald is dropping down in weight so should be able to handle the power against him at 55 and he knows all he has left to do is get the strap so he should be focused.

No way Hardy loses. Total publicity stunt w its debut on espn

Looking at Greg hardy odds -

To win in round 1 is -250

To win in round 2 is -+ 700

I’d love to see Hardy fight someone with stamina, and defense to get it to the second round. Hardy looks like he got a little Ngannou in him where he’d be nothing once he’s winded.

He might fight my boy Arjun Bhullar. He’s 2-1 so far.

Canada wrestler of year in 2010. He’s doing good and training with Cormier and Kgabib.

I met him while in Bc.

I think Hardy could though run through everyone. His pure strength is too much for everyone.
The guy will knock out almost everyone

WTF is Steven A Smith doing talking UFC with Michael Bisping? He knows his NBA and maybe a little football but he's not qualified to talk MMA.
