    I have no problems with that stoppage. Full mount with bombs raining down at HW = stop it sooner rather than later.

    I think Tai looked good in a loss. He had Junior is all sorts of trouble in round 1

    Tuivasa just wanted that finish, didn't consider what would happen if JDS didn't drop. Shame for Pedro too, he looked pretty good till the ankle went. Both done by experience really, hopefully both take some lessons out of the fights.

    The post fight commentators nail on the head, ground fighting isn’t up to standard here. Does the AIS spend much on combat sports?

    Yeah, really feel for Tai. Wanted nothing more than a KO and didn’t think of any other possible outcomes and paid the price big time. Not a bad stoppage, he was just going to keep eating shots.

    Ahhhh no, no they do not. Especially if it’s not Olympic (judo and wrestling get 2/5 of f all)

    Disappointing loss for Tuivasa but he went from fighting no names to former UFC heavyweight champs in a flash. Hopefully he can learn from those experiences and build on it.

    That’s probably the only real positive, Matthews, Tai, Tyson all looked good in moments but inexperience showed.

    Interesting question RBB . And phantom prob nailed it. Crute has good ground submission game though .

    The biggest thing in crute favour is his pure size and power, escapes, sweeps and even subs are mostly technique but that additional power helps if you commit to them fully (much like his kimura from half guard)

    They really should, a lot more growth and potential financial return in MMA than most track sports. For such a short time in the sport, small population and lack of historical martial arts the representation we have is pretty impressive. The government would be wise to invest.

    I would tend to agree but sadly doubt it will amount to much.

    I do wonder if Pedro’s gonna get another shot, he hasn’t looked the best and losing to an out of prime Shogun isn’t a good look.

    Ankle injury turned the fight though was all over Shogun before that though. Started in the second round and the commentators didn’t notice it until the third.

    A lot of the ''Australian" fighters seem to be adopted from overseas. NZ has a better showing but they all seem to train here so they call them Australian.

    Pedro nearly had him but I didn’t see the lead up to why his leg gave way. It was a slug festival until that moment .

    Not a surprise considering our lack of history in combat sports outside of a few great boxers and a multitude of sports competing with it. Give the people resources and we’ll be up there soon punching out of our division as we are with track sports.

    Ufc definitely building here as they have toured here consistently, and we have a huge one in Melbourne early next year. And we have a champion , not to mention Israel . And tai,s stocks lost nothing. Think it’s growing and the media are behind it / and the fans.

    Robbie really got it crossover appeal, before that we had G Sot and not a lot else.

    It’s not even in its infancy here, it’s newborn.

    I think from a suitability point of view it suits the Polynesian and Island Guys, they are built for explosive power sports, if somewhere like NZ or Tonga had a good base wrestling program I’d be tipping those guys to own it the way the Brazilians did for so long.

    It’ll be interesting to see. Lost 3 of his last 4 so the next is a must win.
