  1. He's very good, especially when he's matched well against someone who's style fits with his. It's nights like last night that make me wonder why both he and the UFC seem hellbent on pursuing fights that are not good matches for him. It makes no sense. He's popular enough without a title belt around his waist. A Masvidal fight would be the smart move next, surely? If they decide to pursue the Khabib rematch it doesn't really matter how good he looked against Cerrone, because he's likely going to get dealt with reasonably easily again.
  2. Think it's because Moraes lost to Cejudo in June last year, but aye, giving Jose the fight is a bit strange.
  3. I don't know if she's accepted the job, but yeah, that's her. She had already handed her notice in at her work, but video footage of her stopping a shoplifter caught Dana's attention for some mental reason.
  4. Normally I'd be shitting all over a fight like that, but with Costa injured (I think) there really isn't anyone else out there who's an outstanding candidate, so why not go with the Romero bout? As long as Costa faces the winner I have no issues with it.
  5. Another thing that has to be questioned surely is his claims that he's making $80 million for this bout. Not a fucking chance. He claimed that he made, what? A shade over Β£40 million for the Khabib fight. I doubt that number to be honest, but there's no way he's making $80 million to fight Donald Cerrone.
  6. I'd assumed he meant that he bought 15 pairs in the last 12 months, no? If he's actually gone through that amount of shoes then questions need to be asked.
  7. Remember Paul Kelly? The Liverpool-born fighter who came into the UFC in 2008, going 5-5 before being released in 2012? He fought the likes of Cowboy Cerrone, Pat Healy, Jacob Volkmann, Denis Siver and Marcus Davis. Well, he's making a comeback to MMA at the age of 35 after being absent from the sport since 2013. The reason? He was jailed for 13 years for heroin trafficking, and was released last year.

    "Debunk" you? It's not a conspiracy theory, it's fact. This terrible shit happened, there's evidence of it all over the place. That's a rather strange thing to say. Well, a few people seem to have been unclear what you meant. I just added to the discussion with some background story. Not quite sure why that's annoyed you so much to be honest. What? My post on that particular point made it clear as day that Nestle had bribed medical companies in order to have them push their agenda. Did my mention of them funding research, office refurbishments and so on pass you by? That's clearly bribery. Was it because I didn't use the exact word you wanted me to use? Come on man. Are you stoned now? Is that why you're making a big deal out of what is essentially nothing? I just added some extra info on the subject matter. Nothing else. I certainly didn't defend Nestle, as you insinuated. Anyway, this has gone on way longer than I anticipated. Time to move on.

    At no point did I say that anything they did "was okay." You need to put aside your urge to be morally superior and read what I'm actually writing. I'm not claiming Nestle are anything other than in the wrong here, I'm simply adding some context and a little bit of backstory. Nothing more. Saying "Nestle kills babies" with no explanation isn't really adding to the topic, is it? I'm just taking the facts as they were presented and helping to provide some idea of what actually happened for those who don't know. Nestle is a horrific company. That comes across even with some context added, so calm down.
  10. Yeah, Gaethje likely wouldn't be the type to take any prisoners. He'd be hinting at those accusations all night long most likely.
  11. What disappointed me even more was that Cowboy was actively shouting the reporter down as well. I expect it from the mouthbreathers who attend these events with a few pints in them, but Cerrone? Fucking hell dude, just sit there and keep fucking quiet. You've already crawled far enough up McGregor's arse throughout the presser without telling a reporter that he's wrong to ask about serious sexual assault accusations.
  12. Having seen the presser I'm pretty sure McGregor wins. It sounds mental, but you can usually tell how Cerrone will do if you watch him in the build up to a fight. When he was facing Alexander Hernandez he had a swagger to him, a quiet confidence that he was going to "put this kid in his place," and it was the same with Mike Perry. He had a quiet confidence about him. If, however, he goes into a fight looking like he's just happy to be there, and spends his time doffing his cap to his opponent and talks about how he's going to have fun, how great his opponent is and so on, it's pretty much a sign he's going to get dropped and beaten. He was like that against T-Ferg, Gaethje, Till, Lawler and Masvidal. I still stand by the opinion that he intentionally blew his nose against Ferguson to get that stoppage. He's had 50 fucking fights, he knows not to be doing that, and his smiling and happily accepting behaviour after the fight told its own story. He knew he was getting fucked up and he wanted out.
  13. Towering over someone isn't just about being taller, Ebb. He was simply a much bigger man. Go back and watch the fight. Cerrone was in trouble from the first bell due to Tills' size. Also, the phrase was used by more than a few MMA sites in their fight reports on the night. Maybe you want to fire off a few emails and correct them as well? As I said previously, McGregor's shots won't carry anywhere near the same power as Till's did on that night. From the off it was clear that Cowboy, a smaller welterweight as you acknowledge, was in big trouble going up against someone who weighed not far off 190lbs on the night of the fight. Are the styles similar? A bit, but the main contributing factor to Cerrone's issues that night was the fact he went up against a guy who was fucking huge in comparison. Till was able to swarm Cerrone due to his overbearing size and the power differential. This fight is the opposite. McGregor is actually the smaller man in there, both in height and body type. Cerrone fills out more easily at 170lbs than McGregor does. He looks less jacked and more athletic because of his body type. Can McGregor win the fight? Absolutely. In fact, I think he does, because Cerrone is a mid-level fighter no matter which division he's in, and I don't think he's as mentally strong as he tries to come across. It's also worth noting that "the big left hand" we all hear about wasn't big enough to put away Nate in two fights, or to put away Khabib either. And despite the belief it was going to send Mayweather to the canvas that never quite happened either. Take away the Aldo KO and it's not like we're talking about a guy who has one-punch KO power in his left hand. He's accurate more than anything else, and puts people away with a selection of shots. The "big left hand" shite is possibly the biggest load of bollocks doing the rounds in MMA today.
  14. Jesus Christ @Egg Shen, you're actually debating if Till went into his fight with Cowboy the much bigger man? Seriously? Okay, here's a fucking photo that shows a different picture. And this is when Till is still recovering from the weight cut. Go back and watch the fight. The difference in size is there for all to see. My point is that any similarities between what happened in the Till vs Cowboy fight, and what could happen in the McGregor vs Cowboy fight are pretty much nullified by the fact that Cowboy went in against a guy who walks around at 200lbs, as opposed to someone who's ideal fighting weight is 155lbs. Also, nice to see that the UFC fans in attendance at the press conference lived up to their reputation by booing the fuck out of the reporter who mentioned the sexual assault allegations. Can't be asking about that now, can we?
