    Yes that was mayhem. The delayed ko was absolutely mad as well.

    I thought he was going to pounce back up and be like Doakes "Surprise Motherfucker!"

    I think the biggest problem with Tony is his herky jerky movements don't really serve him very well anymore. His unpredictability has become predictable, so he gets punched a lot. It just looks awkward and messy.

    I think it's a combination of things with him. Sad to see him fade out like this, but it happens to them all. It was only a few years back Cerrone went on a tear and put a run together. Once that ended he started getting twatted in every fight.

    Fun card last night
    Be interesting to see how the lightweight division develops from here, lot of top contenders in the mix. If you missed the Ferreira/Gillespie fight from last week, it's worth watching that one back too.

    Muniz's sub on Souza was nasty, another guy who's unfortunately struggling to get a win at this stage in his career

    Don't think I've ever seen a KO like it.

    Anyone know what caused the fight in the crowd? Just drinking or did someone think it was Jake Paul...

    Was perusing twitter and came across this. Made me chuckle.

    That was a genuinely historic moment. Luke was such a massive dickhead and yet he learned absolutely nothing from that humiliation.

    @BigOrkWaaagh
    He is so socially awkward as well. I watched an interview he did recently and the Schmo asked him if Jan really does have that 'polish power'. Lol the look on Rockholds face.

    I still think Bispings post fight presser was the best. Walks out late with a beer just smirking :D

    It was but Nate cost himself that fight. He had every opportunity to finish Leon and he just didn't take it.

    Why are they doing an interim heavyweight title fight?

    Is Ngannou injured?

    Just popped in to say that I read this as the UFO appreciate thread, as it was below the UFO thread on the main forum page.

    Because Dana White is a cunt.

    I thought maybe it implied they were holding out for Nganou Jones... But, it sounds like a power play by the UFC instead.

    Yeah white being a cunt seems to be the correct answer.

    I see BT are firing up the old Conor channel again this weekend. As I will be firing up the old galleon.

    So if he loses what's actually left for him?

    Yeah if he loses that's probably it I imagine. If he wins he probably gets a title shot. He avenged his loss to Nate, for all the bluster there was no shame in losing to Khabib, but if he loses to Poirier he would realistically have to win a few to get back into title contention, which I don't think he would want to do. And in that time Poirier could quite realistically beat Oliviera, become champ and do we really want Conor Dustin IV?

    Having said all that, if he does lose and come back they might put him up against Tony to kickstart things. From there, there are some very winnable fights for Conor, until he comes up against Gaethje.

    See I think old Conor would probably beat Gaethje, just by being the more intelligent fighter with better movement, timing and distance. His best days are behind him though and those strengths have probably deserted him, which is understandable when you've got more money than you'll ever need.
