In Australia or GTFO Dana White.Volk vs Charles for the 155 title.
Nah i think he counters and wins a striking battle tbh. Pitter patter on the outside with few risks but wins a close/boring decision
What do they do with Max now? No one wants a rematch with Ortega or kattar, the UFC will probably try to keep Allen away just to get a fresh face for the title, he would destroy Emmett. Yair 2 maybe?
Great points but I'll disagree on the bolded. Schooled Kattar and had an epic fight with a legitimate top fighter in Yair Rodríguez since the 2nd Volk fight; certainly didn't look done in those two. Volk is just on another level now.Re Israel, is it a coincidence that so many of his opponents, even when challenging for a title, refuse to attack him?
He works them out and gets them scared, they don't want to end up like Whittaker (1) or Costa on the canvas.
Is it boring? Yeah, a little bit. I have already seen him do this to several fighters, don't need or want to see it again.
But it will keep happening. Adesanya recently signed a seven-fight contract iirc, he isn't going anywhere.
Israel's team took a risk in going up to LHW, it didn't work out, now they will tread water at MW for a while, collecting cheques.
I say good on 'em. Winning the game.
(I was watching on delay so it was easy for me to just skip through the fight once I realised it was a snoozer).
Was Volk really that good, had he improved as much as people are saying, or has Holloway simply lost it?
I say the latter. The cliff looks steep for that man, it will be sad to see.
Pereira looks legit. But then again, what was old mate thinking? Shame his fight IQ isn't up there with his presser trash talk.
Final thing, I know I go on about this all the time, but DC is a horrendous commentator.
I watch a lot of sportsball, and he is the worst commentator of any organisation or any sport I watch.*
*Not including token females, especially in golf / tennis / cricket, they can be woeful as well.
And he is getting worse by the month.
At the point now where he never shuts up, constantly interrupts the other two, it's a disaster.
If he could just stick to talking about wrestling, maybe talk 20% of the time tops, it would be okay.
On this card it felt like he took over as the centre / play-by-play, and Joe / Anik were his guests for special comments.
At what point do Joe or Anik have a man to man with him and tell him this s**t has gone too far?
Clearly Dana / ESPN aren't going to do it. They are ruining every card they put this guy on.
Not everyone can be as good as the goat, charles oliveira i guess. Interestingly the softest spoken on the list are the biggest killers...I'll leave this here
Although listening to Eugene Bareman it seems as if this is the way he coaches his fighters to avoid long term damage
Its not but it is his job to entertain. Thats the part fans have issue withAlso, Cannonier had to take the belt from Izzy. Izzy's job isn't to risk getting ko'd and handing over his belt. Was the same with Romero... Romero did sfa.
He was dominant, although he himself said he had an off night.Its not but it is his job to entertain. Thats the part fans have issue with
If hes so dominant and going to talk such a big game back it up.
It isnt like hes styling on guys either. Hes not embarrassing guys with his skill, hes pitter patter leg kick, jab. The criticism is valid even if his opponents are doing less
Did we know during the fight he had *ed his hand? I wouldn’t have known anything was wrong watching the way he fought. I watched it at the pub so was hard to hear but I don’t think the commentary team said anything either
