    Usman vs Masvidal July in Vegas. Usman destroys him I'm thinking.

    Yep, I agree, I think Usman will wipe the floor with Masvidal honestly.

    Well D.C. has nowhere else to go as he wonít go near jones again and the heavyweight pool is pretty stagnant.

    He has said he only wants the trilogy with stipe and win or lose he's retiring.

    Romero ruffled Adesanya at the press conference... actually looked nervous towards the end. Or embarrassed that he can't do a backflip like a 42 year old

    From the side angle he landed it pretty badly, wouldn't surprise me if he caused himself an injury.

    Looking forward to that one. Izzy says he wants to be the first person to stop him in the ufc. Can't personally see that happening but you never know. More than likely he will get a unanimous decision.

    I thought Reyes won that easily. Who the fuck scored it 49-46?

    I had Jones winning 3 but it was close. Reyes came in a little too fast too early but I totally understand why he did.

    Valentina was absolutely immense, an amazing performance by her.

    Ugh, Reyes won the first three there while Jones just plodded around woodenly. Robbed.
    And I have a feeling thatís the best Reyes will ever do against him- Jackson will gameplay better for the next one and itíll fizzle ala Gustafsson.

    I wish Jones would fight like old Jones. Current Jones is just too sensible these days.

    I thought Reyes had the first 3 rounds and Jones the last 2. Disappointed with that decision to be honest.

    He will fail the piss test anyway, so the result is moot.

    I don't get how this guy gets so many chances

    I'll refer you to Meja's 1997 smash hit song song "All 'Bout The Money".

    Pretty disappointed with the judging
    Grew to dislike Boxing due to the dodgy decisions, but MMA has been alright throughout. If we're moving in the same direction it'll be hard to stay a fan.

    As above I'm not sure if Reyes can get it done in a rematch, Jones excels in those and JacksonWink generally prepares quite well. They'll have a lot more footage to study Reyes now too. Jones last couple of performances haven't been all that convincing though

    The judges were terrible all night, so it wasn't just on the money fighter.

    The way I saw it, Reyes definitely won R1 and R3.
    Jones definitely won R4 and R5. R2 I had Reyes just about edging it, but it was the closest one.

    I'm a casual fan at best, so my opinion means little, but I too thought Reyes was the clear winner.

    Give Reyes 1-3 (Jones did practically nothing in 1 and 3 apart from run away)
    4 to Jones and 5 a draw

    She was seriously amazing. Awesome fight, picked appart her opponent. Her knee kicks were terrifying. Fight of the night.
    And wtf, no way on any planet Jones won that, he mostly retreated and never got involved really.

    Diego has eaten too many punches.

    About 1000 too many

    Sanchez should be ashamed of himself. Fought like an amateur the whole way through, under a coach who believes in magic rather than technique, then took the DQ win knowing he was fine to continue but had no real chance of winning otherwise.

    Obviously a dumb move throwing the knee in the first place, but I can't really work out why it's an illegal move. Eye pokes and groin strikes, sure, but kneeing a downed opponent?

    I think it's to do with the amount of leverage involved and how much power someone can generate with that kind of strike. See also 12-to-6 elbows and soccer kicks. In fact I suppose it could just be the rule that outlaws soccer kicks written in too broad a way, maybe.
