  1. i know what you mean, ive always felt that way about Anderson Silva's win over Vitor Belfort. The best example is Cain Velasquez/JDS though isnt it? Cain got sparked in the first fight but by the end of the 3rd fight there was no doubt who the better fighter was. Still, heck of a win for Anderson, and in a tournament setting about as flawless victory as you can get.
  2. this got away from me in the end as it did everyone else, but Cory Anderson dusting Ryan Bader in under a minute is pretty impressive: actually quite up for Nemkov/Anderson.
  3. love how innocently cluelss Frampton is about the whole thing...
  4. Yes Neil! get to it. I still planning on watching the Cage Warriors show from last weekend, but this weekend is the 3rd XMMA show. I promised id watch the last show and i didnt, but this one is also catching my eye: I might just go full Tim Boxeo and watch random shitty MMA events instead of the good stuff.
  5. Its such a baffling choice. Johnson could be a tough night too, hes massive, hits hard and if he gets into a clinch type position will probably over power Fedor. Its a hard fight. I do quite like Tim Johnson though, his little run of upsets was good to see on his way to a title shot, i dont think anyone ever has him pegged as anything other than a mid-card brawler. ...but yeah, the fight is weird.
  6. i love everything about that
  7. Well 268 produced tumbleweeds, lets see if Fedor brings some traction πŸ˜„ Its actually quite sad how little anyone cares about this, but it is one of the most baffling fights Bellator could have put together. I'll add more about this in the week, buf i wanted to get it up on here cause its completely flying under the radar.
  8. Yeh thats how im seeing it now. Im happy to skip certain shows now or just cherry pick fights from them. If it was the only show in a calender monty it'd be different, but by the time you've complained about one you are hit with a monster PPV. The Apex isnt helping. As much as ive grown the dislike the environment, the UFC has no obligation to sell tickets, so they can basically do what they want with these shows to fulfill their TV contract. We cant complain about the quality of the PPV's though, the UFC are putting in higher level shows than ever before.
  9. thanks for recommending that, binged it yesterday. Cracking.
  10. it was an unbelievable fight, yet neither seemed to put a significant dent in the other despite battering each other for 12 rounds, crazy. Anyone catch Martin's win over Mikey Garcia? a huge upset. Garcia just didnt look at the races but seemed to think he was winning comfortably. Martin was awesome. Not a great fight, but easily one of the best performances of the year. Sky card was ok, Eubanks opponent looked good for 3 rounds then drowned once it got tough, Eubank is being turned into a completely different fighter by Roy Jones. Marshall/Shields is building nicely. It feels like Hughie Fury has been actively told to be more aggressive and show some personality. It kind of worked. And again, do yourselves a favour. If you didnt see it, go watch Brad Rea vs. Jez Smith from the Sky undercard:
  11. its up there I only watched the Bruno Silva fight cause i needed him to win to complete acca so i enjoyed that way more than i probably should have πŸ˜„$ Keep Silva away from wrestlers though, theres barnburners to be had with him.
  12. ill chime in with some more thoughts tomorrow but if you aint seen it, do yourselves a favour:
  13. Caught Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes supporting Biffy Clyro in Cardiff a month or so back. Hadnt really enjoyed anything id heard of theirs (which was very little) but they put on a hell of a live show. Quality frontman. As for Gallows. Never really went deep in on them, but i did like the Wade MacNeil fronted stuff i heard.
  14. Aye, thats the one. Interested to see how he looks. He was highly touted going into the UFC and then his career was in bits after a single fight.
  15. not that anyone cares, but theres a sneaky good little Cage Warriors US card tonight live on Fight Pass im not quite what the purpose of Cage Warriors in America is, because it doesnt feature any actual Cage Warrios fighters from Europe, but the card is good and its in an outdoor setting on a beach so it looks lovely. Spyke Carlyle main events. Harshly let go after a 1-2 run in the UFC. Carlyle was must see, a balls out fighter who left it all in the cage. We will live in a world where Sam Alvey is still on the roster on a 7 fight winless streak and Carlyle was let go after 2 losses. Max Rohskopf in the co-main. Second fight back after that highly publicised decision to quit between rounds in the UFC. Rohskopf was seen as a huge prospect before that. Markus Perez on there too. He always brings it, the mental fucker. Quite like this. Watching MMA in a different setting is highly refreshing these days too. The cookie cutter uniformed UFC shows all blend into one.
