Well there it is... Fight Island and all of its glory. IT IS REAL BOIZ
The Mortal Kombat Tournament begins soon!
I also agree that Shevchenko is the only woman that appears to be of any challenge to Nunes. Though I am tired of watching them fight. Watching the same people fight 3 times is a bit much.
I didn't pay attention to the drama happening between masvidal and white. Though it is a real shame that Masvidal let the entire division fall through for Gilbert Burns(whom put up a great performance). Welterweight has always been such a crazy division.
I would have liked to see someone else challenge Volkankovski rather than seeing this fight again. He won convincingly and controlled the last fight(from what I remember). Max should have just fought someone climbing the ranks and then had the chance for the title shot if he won that. My opinion of course.
Also I am tired of seeing Stipe vs DC. Battle of the men who are both going to retire after this fight. Let Francis have his shot again, he has clearly improved(granted his striking was wild this last fight)
I will watch that Cejudo JRE thing later though it is hilarious that Cejudo did DMT with Mike.
You know who I think could kick ass in an MMA fight? Scott Adkins. His shit always looks legit. Here's a fun video of him breaking down martial art fights in movies. He calls out when it would work in real life or not so I think it applies here. Sorry if this doesn't exactly fit here but this is the most active fighting thread on here.
Watching that main event last night and all I could think of was "neither of these two chicks stands a chance against Val." Val is just so far ahead of everyone at 125 right now. That could change quickly, but for now I just don't see anyone at 125 threatening her.
i'm watching emmett vs burgos, holy fuck when emmett hits you hear the same sound of gaetjie punches, this guy is probably the heaviest hitter at 145, i don't know how burgos can absorb these punches like that...
