    The Lawler stoppage was weird; clearly Herb seen his arm go limp and drop to the canvas, and at that point he really was behaving like someone who was out (albeit for half a second), but then he picked his arm up to test and didn't seem to pay attention to what the arm did after that (Lawler held it up), immediately waving a stop to it all.

    Lawler seemed to take it really well also, which kinda made me feel like he knew he was out at some point.

    Still sucked, because it was panning out to be possibly the most interesting fight on the main card.

    Yeah, it was a weird card. I feel like I've learnt nothing new about Askren, other than he can take a punch and survive a bit of adversity. And again, with Johnny Walker, these fast knockouts don't really tell you anything about the fighter other than he has power and is willing to take chances early on. We've still no real idea about his cardio, wrestling or even his standup.

    Askren was one punch away from losing that fight. He did well to weather that storm. Lawler is no joke in the striking stakes.

    Lawler was so pumped for that fight. I think I would have soiled myself if I'd been in the cage with him.

    He is a terrifying human being and had Darwin met him I think he may have declared that he was the missing link.

    According to Rogan, Conor vs Cerrone isn't happening cause it would have been the co main event as the UFC want all PPV main events to be the title match and Conor doesn't want to be the co main event

    What's next for Conor then? If he wants a title fight again he either needs to cut to FW again or fight Max for the interim LW belt before Max gets the chance to fight Khabib (assuming Max wins). There's a story for Conor/Max so the UFC will definitely do it and Ferguson has said he doesn't want an Interim belt so it wouldn't be like he'd be getting passed over for a change.

    BJ Penn is returning for some reason against Clay Guida. I don't know why Dana still lets him fight.

    I guess the photo was of something Conor didn't want the world to see, I hope the guy has cloud backup!

    I can't believe that someone who got paid a fortune for being an arrogant violent arsehole is being such an arrogant violent arsehole

    Daily fail going with a different take on it as usual.

    Apparently Conor walked up to him and acted like her wanted to shake hands but instead grabbed the phone and smashed it

    Yes, McGregor is a cunt.

    What are your thoughts on the upcoming fights this weekend Mowgli?

    Sounds like Ferguson has some quite serious issues which explains why he didn't take the fights he was offered. Anyone care to hazard a guess what the hell he's on to make him behave like this?

    On Feb. 19, police conducted a welfare check on Tony Ferguson after he made unknown threats, and his wife and son left their house, according to a separate police report. Police spoke to an unidentified female who stated Tony Ferguson had “not slept for three days and was tearing apart the home” and “broke apart the fire place and believed someone placed a (computer) chip in his leg.” An unidentified male who’d called the police said the fighter had told him “someone was inside his walls.” Nearly two hours after the police made contact, Cristina Ferguson told police her husband’s trainer couldn’t get him to leave the house to see a doctor.

    Just three days earlier, on Feb. 16, Cristina Ferguson called police from a nearby park after leaving their home. She said that, while Tony Ferguson hadn’t been violent to her or anyone else, she was concerned for her husband’s well being. In police comments on the incident report, she reported that “he kept throwing ‘holy water’ at her,” and his condition – redacted in the report – had been getting worse. He’d also refused to go to a hospital for an evaluation.

    Doesn't sound like it, sounds much more like schizophrenia.

    That was a bad card until the end. Thought the LHW fight and Edwards - Nelson were terrible.

    As for Till; he has a habit of leaving his chin hanging in the air when he looks for the counter, and, given his height, an outcome like that was always going to be a danger.

    Till is a MW at WW. He needs to move up asap.

    As if the Till fight wasn't enough, Masvidal just swung on Leon Edwards backstage
