Reem v Olynik retirement fight

Reem wont retire (even though he should). He can still make 6 figures and main event. Even if UFC cut him Bellator would pounce, Rizin/One back on the vitamins also come calling...

Sad thing is, Volkov doesnt have massive power but he marked Reem up badly with very little effort. Hes definitely done but this wont be the end.

I think Reem is on a really good deal from what I read, not sure how many fights he's got left but he's not retiring I wouldn't think. Damn he took a beating tonight though.

Hard to believe we'll see a better KO than Sandhagen's tonight this year, hard to believe you can time that, amazing. Overall a good card I'd say, very enjoyable.

Yeah I agree it was good to watch although I only watched the last three fights. Probably Overeem shelling up on the fence was perfect for Volkov with that straight power . Agree he is a a bit slow .

Overeem has had two beatings, I think he should seriously think about retiring or should be dropped down. He's looking a bit slow and not as fluid anymore.

That was a bit weird that, as soon as Volkov attacked Reem went ultra defence, I wonder if he's lost his nerve?
Overeem has done that for quite a while now. whenever he gets pressed he turtles up on the cage but will normally bob and weave a bit and not actually get hit too much. Doesnt look good but had been effective

seemed the first shots volkov landed really damaged overeem and he had nothing left after that.

don’t think he needs to retire but needs to reassess where he’s at and take easier fights

On the prelims, fighter #1 walks out, his intro music playing, does his little walk around the ring.

Where's his opponent? What's taking so long?

The announcer (the Spanish speaking guy, not Buffer) announced 'this fight has been canceled'.

Apparently old mate had back spasms right before walkout.

Sucks for all parties concerned.

This is the fight I was staying up for (local time 1am here in Bulgaria).

Dobson $2.50 underdog vs Aussie / Scot Casey O'Neill.

Dobson's TDD is pretty poor but she has a strong guard, and is very tough.

O'Neill is making her UFC debut, and some of her previous fights were straight up cans.

This could go either way. I'm on Dobson.
