Bendo is good, but boring. A natural way to replace sleeping pills. GSP is up there but he retired tho.

His legs are like f*ckin trees and he uses his punches.
You ever noticed how everyone catches his body kicks all the time?

Actually one thing that Thompson did that no one else ever did was pushing him back with his leg.Everyone else trys to trip him when they catch his kicks.

these judges, man...they're just horrible. bendo was completely outgrappled out there and josh had a broken thumb for four rounds. i don't even dislike bendo but these judges are going to make fans turn on them. bendo has been on the 'lucky end' of his last few fights as gigantes pointed out. it's not the fighters' faults.

That's how it was with GSP. You could tell by his reaction after the fight that the didn't feel like he won, and honestly I think that's a big reason why he gave the belt up. But people were still lashing out at him like it was his fault the judges gave it to him. It sucks cuz like you said in the long run it turns people against them to the point that fans wanna see them lose like it's some kinda comeuppance. You got good fighters/good guys getting booed after every fight over something they didn't do.

Thompson won and got ****ed over again just like with his last fight with Melendez......smh.

That new HW the UFC is trying to hype is very average if Gonzaga had decent cardio he would have trashed him. The guy's skills are average at best and all this crap about his athletic ability, please Gonzaga in the first was catching with faster punches. Dudes easy to hit, average skills not impressed.

Good to see Bruce Leeroy win, I think Pettis bro needs to drop down one weight division or is Bruce Leeroy just massive for the weight?

So basically, if Gonzaga was a better fighter he might have won? Well, guess what? He's not a better fighter. He's been overhyped ever since he Cro Cop'd Cro Cop and has done little since then in terms of beating quality opponents.

If he's so easy to hit, then why wasn't he KO'd like the last 2 guys Gonzaga fought? Miocic has fairly good potential because he has something most HWs don't - cardio. Plus, he doesn't try to rely on a sloppy overhand right to win fights like a bunch of HWs.

I think a little of both. I believe Caceres started off as a LW while Pettis is short. He was asked about flyweight:

"The UFC haven't asked if I'm interested in jumping between flyweight and bantamweight, but it's something I would be interested in. I feel good at 135lbs, the weight class isn't very harsh on my, but 125lbs is a hard weight cut for me. I walk around about 155lbs-158lbs, and 125lbs is kind of pushing it. I fought at 125 in the RFA and even though I had a good performance the weight cut really killed me. I mean, if the opportunity is there and they want me to fight at flyweight, I would definitely take it because the division is brand new and I would get a title shot right away."

always good to hear from some dude stumbling along the street in a purple haze.

so, here's some reality-- stipe is not ever likely to be a champ, but he's proved himself to be tough, game, interesting... a perfect 5 - 10 guy for the ages.

I took a little hiatus from MMA but yeah this is the 2nd time I have seen Stipe and the first time he got stopped by Struve which I forgot all about until I looked at his record and realised I watched that fight as well. It's just the way they were hyping him I don't know I was expecting a bit more tbh.

Did he look really good against Roy Nelson or something like that? But yeah I agree he's a fringe top 10 guy depending on the quality of the HW division with a lot of the "good HW's" getting old like Mir/Nelson/Reem/Nog/Barnet and most well past there primes/on the verge of retiring.

yea, he handled roy nelson like a kid playing with a hamster.

he also had struve in all kinds of trouble, but kept backing off and resetting after he landed some good blows. terrible fight plan from his corner, because once you have struve hurt, he just covers up and hopes things blow over.
