Stipe is like the Michael Myers/Jason Vorhees of mixed martial arts.

Just a big, tough son of a bitch who is nearly impossible to kill and just keeps trudging forward no matter what you hit him with.

I’m not knocking his overall skills as a fighter because he is certainly skilled, but I wouldn’t say he’s some crazy technical wizard as a striker or particularly elite at anything grappling wise.

He just has such a rare combination of elite chin, elite cardio for a heavyweight and punching power that has proven to be devastatingly effective at the heavyweight level.

Conor and his team had this ish coming with the racist/ islamophobic ish. Eff them. Not a fan of red shirt jumping in the ring, but love Khabib hopping the fence to son the whole squad.

The hits keep on coming for Conor..,.


Old enough to remember when I rooted for him against Mayweather due to character issues.

Even fairly recently Ryan Fitzpatrick dressed up as him.

Can't help but think CTE has been steadily destroying McGregor's brain as we speak.

Fantastic victory by Dustin Poirier.

Weathered a few big shots in Round 1, but 100% stuck to his game plan and just destroyed McGregor's lead leg with repeated calf kicks.

Once Poirier killed the leg, McGregor was easy pickings and Poirier was able to finish him off with his boxing.

Yeah, that was a great fight by Poirier. It escalated pretty quickly, too.

Also, I wanna see Michael Chandler against one of the top fighters. That guy is a nut :chuckle:

Usman is just spectacular. One of the greatest of all time.

I just saw Rafeal Alves missed weight by nearly 12 pounds.

He looked absolutely cut up on the scale so..what in the world is he fighting in a division that low for??

Well...shit. I don’t see how Jon Jones beats Francis now with Ngannou’s improved TDD and striking IQ. Francis is like the MMA’s version of Giannis Antetokounmpo, all the raw ability in the world who just needed experience/coaching to cement themselves at the top of there respective sport.

Fucking hate Connor McGregor so I'm cool seeing him suffer a brutal injury like this one. Dustin was beating the piss out of him too, maybe they should fight again so he can hurt him worse.
