    I wasn’t criticizing or praising just saying it’s his fault. I watch the sport pretty sure In my own mind they’re all juicing.

    Pretty much, always been the hurdle for him to take that next step.

    Blayde's 2nd and 3rd was uninspiring but after the early flurry have to give him a lot of credit.

    Looked like the Lesnar fight.

    It's just the way it is when most of the time you're the smaller guy....you're gonna get taken down a lot.

    Hunt has made HUGE improvements to his TDD and his get ups in that time span. HUGE.

    He is coming from a long way back, especially against someone like Blaydes.

    I'm just glad that we have a main event. Good on Luke, and good on Yoel (no-ones turning down a shot at the title tho(even if interim)), just a pity he didn't make weight, but u know he would've given it his all.

    Not the most exciting fight for a belt. I miss the Anderson Silva Chael Sonnen days

    Savage finish.

    Romero vs Weidman/Gastelum - winner fights Whittaker.

    But then again, it sounds like Robert is ready to rock soon, too, so Christ knows.

    Interesting fight that'd be. I'd have Romero by murder but Gastelum can always pull something out of his ass.

    Sad for Luke. I mean, he did all the right things, he made weight (and that cut is clearly tough af for him, he accepted the fight (even tho he didn't have to). A ******* hell of a fighter, but u touch him, he's down, just as Bisping showed us.

    Yoel/Conor? :D

    Card would have sold poorly. It was ok for us down under, but pretty much absolutely shit for the rest of the world.

    Disagree. Romero cant go hard for 5 rounds. He will have a flurry then need 3-4 minutes to recover. Rockhold needed to force the pace and gas out the mountain of muscle that Romero is.

    Yoel looked to be in a great mental space. A skilled fighter...and just did well. Rockhold never looked great, and maybe because of the left shin injury that he copped very early in the fight.
