COme on! Bahamondes with the KO of the night.

Welcome to the UFC!

Great kick! Couldn't watch last night, but great to have another Chilean in the UFC

Waking up today to social media comments, here seems to be a lot of people against this sport. I had no idea

What do y'all think of Khamzat Chimaev? Dude is a fecking psycho. :lol:
They're talking him up really fast for what he's done, he's had 3 fights and Dana has him as the next big thing which he's done with loads of fighters and it's backfired.

The turnaround time in between them 2 fights was really impressive and he has looked good but he's faced no one of any quality. I think cos of the hype they have given him they're rushing him in to the Edwards fight and Edward will pick him apart.

Is the main card really starting at 3am GMT? It seems abit late given the prelims are well under way.
That’s regular for number ppv’s. Smaller cards like this varies from time to time but not unusual

Yeah true but I honestly cannot remember a 3 and half hour pre lim slot as of late and I've watched most events this year, and kept an eye on the times of the ones I've missed.

A quick Google search would probably suggest I am talking out my arse, mind.

Saw the 2 last fights on replay this morning, think the last one was pretty good, Teixeira impressed me.
Twice he looked like he was going to be beat down, but turned it around, and the cnut is older than me!

Yep. Hopefully a more competitive fight this time around. I'm a huge Poirier fan so rooting for him. I would love it if McGregor would donate a fat sum to the Good Fight Foundation after the fight like Khabib did with the auction. Would really give him some much-needed good publicity. I think he's already mentioned he'd do something like this.

I could imagine Tony Ferguson in the crowd though jeering them both :lol:

yeah he already did say that. He also, I seem to recall, said he'd match the donation to Poirier's project to one within his own community.

How in the holy feck can a judge give that to Felder? Potentially one of the worst I have ever heard

Ngannou working with Teddy Atlas. Good to make his boxing even better but not sure if it would help against an opponent like Stipe, who would almost certainly want to take him down. I am curious to see how he would fare as an actual boxer though.
