Alright, this Sunday:

I've been talking him up a bit lately so will be embarrassed if Luque can't beat Belal. I think both guys have improved quite a bit since their 2016 fight, but Luque is just the better fighter.

Not a great deal going on for the rest of the card but keen to see Chris Barnett again.

I believe it’s Ramadan and Muhammad has been fasting, geez would be a tough gig to fight during that

I was interested to know how he does it. Found this..


"Fasting during Ramadan means abstinence from all food or drink, including water and chewing gum, from dawn to sunset. It is recommended that before sunrise, Muslims eat a prefast meal known as suhur. This meal often resembles breakfast, but in some cultures it may include more dinner-like foods".

Khamzat was in Ramadan as well, very tough gig. There is an allowance for travellers but really, getting enough nutrition with the amount of activity you're doing would be impossible.

Is this not the weakest ufc card ever? Very little to be excited about.
Main event (as a fight) is pretty good, but as a headliner, and on a piss poor card.... Pretty ordinary, ufc.

So why does that go to a decision when Omargadziev couldn't continue due to an illegal knee stopping the fight?

The amount of bitching "fans" on social media because Belal won is hilarious. He literally outstruck Vincente and they're still mad. Is he the most exciting fighter? Absolutely not, but not everyone can be.

He's the whipping boy at this point. He's starting to play to it as well, which is a good move as he's boring as hell as a fighter.

Just a really disappointing effort from Luque. All his momentum after 4 in a row is now gone and he has to start all over again. The lack of urgency at any point was baffling.

The result was never in doubt. I don't think it mattered what Belal done, he wasn't going to get any love imo.

Could draw some similarities between him and Colby (who he called out). Wonder if he really leans into being the heel now as well. Would set up a very interesting fight, wonder where Colby would go with the Palestinian angle.

Looked like he was fine until the ref said it was an illegal strike then he milked it imo.

That being said I'd still be asleep if he'd done that to me.

Again I have to watch it, sounds shit if that was the case.

That's why I'll always respect Anthony Smith, he was really hurt by that illegal strike of jones, he toughed it out though and took the L.
