    Masvidal really isn't a fan of Askren

    Brock is apparently retired and they're working on DC Stipe 2. I feel bad for DC, he deserved the payday, and Stipe hasn't really done himself any favours sitting out and demanding a rematch, but I still look forward to it. I wonder if Brock failed a test and just immediately retired.

    I feel it's almost a given Brock is juiced up to the eyeballs and wont stop for UFC.
    Shame really liked seeing him in UFC.

    Well, apparently he was tested twice by usada in the last 6 or 12 months. He's clearly lost a lot of mass. It's more likely he's realised he hasn't got it anymore without the extra help.

    Brock wanted a guaranteed flat fee which is why the fight didn't happen

    It's because of how the PPVs are now handled in the US, PPV points aren't worth what they were so he wanted his money guaranteed.

    Disappointing. I'd of liked to see Cormier Vs Lesnar.

    Cormier would put him on his ass and sub him in no time.

    Yeah it would have been very one sided. DC is one of the goat's.

    Watched this live last night. A lot of first round finishes on that card.

    It wasn't bad. I do find it amusing watching bellator from a production values point of view it's a right shit show. It also looked like no fucker was there in the arena. I know there's some good fighters in bellator but it still feels like day and night between ufc and skill level. Some of the fights last night were shocking in terms of defence.

    Yeah I genuinely thought it would be an early night for Kelvin when he rocked him early on. That 5th rd was absolutely amazing. Adesanya dismantled him at the end and another 10 secs or so I think the ref would of stopped it.
    Sylvia's the big guy right? Remember when he had his arm snapped and wanted to carry on! When he came back he was carrying a bit extra than before but I guess he's got back into shape. Remember when the result was the other way round, when the Russian guy just latched onto the guy's ancle. All good fun :)

    Sylvia (if he's the guy I'm thinking of) is a big fan favorite though, imo he seemed to be pushed through the ranks quickly when he was obviously not in shape after coming back from injury. But a guy that size will always be dangerous I suppose (as the Russian dude found out).

    Has this guy just emerged from a wormhole he stepped through 15 years ago?

    Was a good fight, Rose was looking sharp until then. Andrade is tough as fuck though.

    Cruz's commentary wound me up a bit on the main event. Rose had a kimura on while Andrade was trying to lift her, same as the finish, but she didn't manage to get her down, and Cruz was going "She's got the perfect defense, there's no way she can pick her up while she's got that kimura in, there's just no way!" Then fast forward to the second round where they were in the exact same position, Rose gets powerbombed to hell and Cruz is going "now what Rose should have done..."

    Shame it ended that way. Namajunas is a much more complex and interesting fighter to represent that weight class than Jessica Androge.

    Yeah, there was another moment or two when he deliberately contradicted something DC said, just because.

    Also, Brazilian crowds are wankers. They're not 'passionate', they're just twats.

    I used to like Cruz's commentary but he was annoying in this one. Aldo looked shite. As did Silva. Decent main event for how long it lasted.

    I wonder if we'll ever see him again now that making silly money from PPV points is apparently a thing of the past?

    That's only the phone smashing thing isnt it as he paid the guy off.

    Haven't heard anything about the rape stuff for a bit.
