Chandler is fun to watch. Swings for the fences.

Edit: :lol: He was fun for a round at least.

Still only 1 American champ in men’s divisions and that’s Aljo Sterling, so really none technically

Crazy belt fight! Dunno how oliveira survived the first and then he came into the second and conquered!

This is by far the best division in ufc. Anyone who charles fights next anything could happen!

Delighted for Oliveira! He's put in soo much work in the UFC and he's such a great technical fighter. BTW most finishes in UFC history with that win. Legend.

Surely Oliveira has to be in the top 3 pound for pound at this point. He's got the best ground game in the UFC and just KO'd someone for the belt. Only Jones is as complete imo.

That was probably one if the best first rounds I've ever seen. Chandler nearly won the fight....twice.

He did really well to recover but he looked right on the edge in the first. Take Khabib loss away and Poirier is the best in the devision imo.

It would be a good fight. Oliveira is more complete in all aspects, but Dustin is probably a slightly better puncher - although after just watching this, I'd say its very close.

Well I think we may just find out. Cant see Conor beating him and then it's a title fight. Feel that he's confident enough to get his red panty night again and then go after the belt. Really believe in Poirier.

I hope that fight isn’t too far away. I think Dustin wins the trilogy this summer, and then... I mean Oliveira would ruin Conor if it came down to them

Peace out to Tony Ferguson. It was fun seen you cut people up, bro. Don't do some Diego shit, now.

Yeah I think Conor would end in a first round submission. Olivera still has Dustin and Justin to go through so the next 18 months should be fun. Possibly Dariush as well.

Dariush looks like a younger version of my dad :lol:

What the hell was that post fight interview?

Glad Olives won. I still remember on the card where Nate beat Johnson, Olives got a won and in the post fight, meekly called out McGregor.

The commentary team laughed at him.

We'll see McGregor come begging now.

Great fight!
