    UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor

    I'm of the belief that everything played its part in how the fight went. All the above. Khabib's skills and technique, Khabib's size and physical strength at the weight, Conor's layoff. It's funny though, the people I know who were convinced Conor was going to win didn't want to hear about the layoff before the fight. It was all 'yeah but the way he trains man...he'll be sharp...he looks big...the layoff won't effect him...plus he's got pro boxing level boxing now as well...Khabib's fucked.' Of course, Khabib schools him and now the same people are citing the layoff. Ha. As for the 'Conor didn't look right stuff', it could've been partly down to the layoff. Maybe. But I think if he looked off, the main reason was because Khabib was in the opposite corner. He was never going to be able to strike as freely against Khabib. He knew that if he really committed to anything - a big strike, combo, anything - he'd have to make it count because Khabib was just waiting to ragdoll him to the ground. That'll be why Conor didn't pull the trigger at times. He had to constantly worry about getting taken down because he knew if Khabib got him on the ground that was probably the round. I think it's a bit early to say Conor's power hasn't carried up to 155 as well. He's 1-1 in the UFC's lightweight division currently. The Diaz fights were at 170, plus Diaz is ridiculously tough anyway and McGregor still hurt and dropped him a few times. And he dropped and hurt Alvarez repeatedly. And Alvarez is hard as nails. In Alvarez's next fight after McGregor bashed him he ate Justin Gaethje's bombs and came through to stop Gaethje. He's durable as fuck. I think McGregor's got good power at 155. It just didn't trouble Khabib that night. We all agreed that Conor's not a massive, one shot, concussive power hitter anyway. He's definitely got power, it was just a bit overhyped. But I don't think the way this fight with Khabib played out was to do with Conor's power not carrying up to 155. I just think it was a combination of Khabib taking the shots well and Conor not having the freedom of stringing together combinations (which is usually how he gets stoppages) because he was always mindful of the takedown threat. Khabib is just a terrible, terrible matchup for McGregor. The worst. Honestly, if I was designing a mutant, cyborg MMA fighter to beat Conor McGregor, it would pretty much be Khabib Nurmagomedov.

    Looks pretty great. Is the Yorkshire pudding element made from scratch or a Quorn product?

    Ah man, that's cool! You should get some pans and cook the fella a meal once in a while though, as nice as Deliveroo is!
  8. I've already seen it through illegal methods.. but I'll be catching it again if it's shown locally. I can imagine it being even better on a big screen.

    She was vegan when we were together and seems to have started again since recently breaking up with her fella. His favourite snack is cucumber and hummus but I let him have chocolate. He doesn’t want to eat any animals but is too young to explain why dairy products are bad. He loves animals though and wants to be a vet when he is older

    UFC 230: Cormier vs Lewis

    That was originally coined for Bobby Lashley back when they moved him up from the old WWECW to the main card and were pushing him like Lesnar. Hahaha, now that certainly should be in the tags.

    It was the shits, the opening tag and the women's match were ok, but other than that they TNA'd the fuck out of it. The 6 man was a shit show, the lax match was a look between you're fingers type thing because I was expecting someone to pop an ankle because if you are doing no canvas, you need to at least tape the fucking boards together. The fact that lax couldn't win without Konann, Tommy dreamer and abyss being focal points, not getting a new Yorker for Eli Drake's open challenge, Don callis openly calling out the stupidity of what was happening, and THAT finish. I want impact to do well, but it feels like we're circling the drain one more time.

    Unless it's a black man's hand. Then you just get life in prison with no parole. Might have been reaching for a gun, after all.

    It wasn't meant a dig, and I wish more people would stop giving Vince money. The world would be a better place. Or at least he might reign in the hubris and Make Wrestling Great Again.

    Have to agree re the Allie su match wasn’t to my liking at all i wasn’t a huge fan of the broken stuff tbh but atleast that was meant to be a bit of comedy as much as anything else this just seemed like a really horribly acted low budget horror on the plus side atleast we got the return of rosemary during the segment so she must be nearing a return from her injury re the Aries stuff it almost certainly will be a work the way he acted during the hall of fame seemed to be along the same lines atleast we got a decent match out of it first

    Totally irrational one from me but there's a fella that sits opposite me that throws himself backwards into his seat with such force that the floor shakes. He's like Hans Gruber at the end of Die Hard falling into it.

    5 minutes. Work in the next town. Drop the kids off at school and then it's two roads and a roundabout. it's that close that a busy lollipop near the primary school will double it

    At the moment it's an absolute dream. 6 miles of dead roads. Leave house at 6.45am Drop the misses off at the train station 6.50am Park in work 7am. I've earned this after over 10 years of a 75+ min drive into Cardiff at rush hour and then the same coming home. I'm fucked when we relocate in a few years though.

    Championship/Football Manager used to be my vice. I sank hours upon hours into it them years ago, but despite buying every release since about 1996(and a few before that on the Amiga), I just can't seem to get into it anymore. On '18, the longest I have got into a "career" is 3 seasons. Can see me buying '19, but I'm not holding my breath that I'll be able to get into it anymore than I did '18...

    Your Daily Commute

    In a move barely one step removed from home worker boasting, I live 10-15 minutes' walk uphill from my work. Because of school traffic, walking in is often quicker than if I'd got a lift. Occasionally, though, I have to do a day or two at Plymouth University. This involves, depending on what time I'm needed there, either an 8am flight to Exeter, or a flight the previous evening. If I'm travelling on my own, this is followed by an absurdly expensive taxi from Exeter Airport to the train station, then a train to Plymouth. In order to get back, it's usually a 6.30/7am flight - wherein, if I'm travelling alone, the trains from Plymouth aren't running early enough to get me there on time. So I have to stay at an airport hotel, and still get up around 4.30/5am, get on the flight, and then more often than not go straight from the airport to work for a full shift.

    Varies, depending on weather/laziness/tiredness: Option #1 — Using the Citibike bikeshare, which is half a block from our apartment. Cycle down 2nd Avenue most of the time, up a big fuck-off hill (for me, anyway, as a fat lad), and then a smaller hill, and then plain sailing down to work, bike park a block from work. Easy as pie, unless I'm knackered, lazy, carrying too much stuff, or there aren't any bikes to be had. Sometimes I get adventurous and take a different route, head across town and go down fifth avenue, which is easier but there's not really a bike lane to be had. They're rolling out more pedal-assisted bikes, which is making those hills less of a discouragement. Smashed my face on someone's door in Sept 2016, but that was a freak occurrence. Always guaranteed to see some demented driving, a new shop or two, and something fucking weird. Option #2 — Take the subway. Couple of blocks away, and then either change at Times Square, which is always an experience and means I can get a train literally to the door of my office building, or carry on down to about five minutes walk from work. Generally plain sailing, although a bloke woke up from under a blanket at Times Square recently and screamed "GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY MOTHERFUCKING HOUSE!!!" Option #3 — Take the bus. Great views, can take forever or just terminate without warning about a mile from work. Option #4 — Get to 34th street, take the ferry. A glorious journey, wish it wasn't just expensive enough to do often, and close enough to home that I didn't have to take bike/bus down there. Allegedly, there will soon be a cheap, direct ferry a block or two away, so I'm anticipating that this will be available in a decade or so.

    There’s a bloke in the office who always wears his coat. He’s sat there right now typing away wearing his fucking coat. It’s one of those big long ones as well. He looks ridiculous.
