  1. Cyborg vs Holly UFC 219

    I think that's an amazing fight, but not perhaps from an entertainment perspective.
  2. Cyborg vs Holly UFC 219

    Where Mcgregor is going to have to change is his willingness to go to ground after the possible knockdown. It certainly wasn't an issue early in his career, in particular against Holloway and Siver, but if there's any opportunity for the kill against Khabib, he's going to have to take it. Mcgregor is a precision striker, and certainly does possess one punch KO power, but the majority of his UFC finishes outside of Aldo have come from strikes on a downed opponent. It seemed after his loss to Diaz, he became more hesitant in going to the floor, and even against Alvarez there was a couple moments of hesitation in prior knockdowns. You don't get the impression Khabib has any sort of glass jaw either, so if there's a sniff of being to finish the fight, Mcgregor must take it. He can't bide his time like he did with Diaz in the first fight and in parts the Alvarez fight.
  3. Cyborg vs Holly UFC 219

    Whilst I agree with the end part, we found out Mcgregor had a serious knee injury going into that Mendes fight and didn't prepare at all for a wrestler. His entire camp was stand up based and his knee injury prevented him from training any sort of wrestling. Now I'm not trying to pretend that Khabib is in any way comparable to Alvarez in terms of their grappling, but you see the difference in Mcgregor's takedown defense once he was fully fit after of camp heavily based on takedown defense.

    The one thing I remember about that Weidman/Rockhold fight is that after the fight it came out that Rockhold had been battling a staph infection in the 2 weeks in the build up to it. As a consequence he been on antibiotics for a large time which had a big impact on his gas tank. Not that Weidman didn't have issues, but it explains why Rockhold wasn't quite right in that fight despite the win. Personally, if a fully focused Rockhold turns up, he wrecks everyone in the middleweight division.

    To be fair, there's been nothing in any of the official announcements from the UFC that suggest it's the main event. However, with the state of the some of the recent fight night headliners, I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being the case.
  6. General Adnan's Football 17/18

    Emre Can is an odd one and really divides the fan base. When it comes down to it he's just ridiculously inconsistent. One week he can be incredible and the next be extremely lazy. A lot is made from Liverpool's back 4, but I've lost count this season (and last) just how many times it's a simple case of the likes of Can or Henderson just not tracking a runner or just switching off. Personally I would like to see him stay as he's still young, but he probably feels his opportunities will be limited with the arrival of Keita next year.

    Haha, congrats Wand. We're expecting our 3rd end of June as well. I'm frankly terrified. Regarding Tate, got to feel for Bryan Caraway (despite him being a twat). Put all those years in for Miesha to then get pregnant within a few months of meeting a new fella. I didn't even realise that guy is Johnny Nunez either (from TUF).
