I don't care where (just far)
Luke Thomas talks Till/Gastellum


I agree with Luke and echo my earlier sentiment:

Kelvin is a tough out for anyone. He’s a brutal matchup for first fight at 185. It’s a ballsy move by Till. Dana says they offered Till other 185ers but Till “insisted” on Kelvin.

It’s a risk but I kinda like it. Kelvin is obviously a smaller 185er and a win over him could put Till immediately in the Top 5/Top 8

Shit if they really just want him to be undefeated forever, I'll get knocked out for 40k Call me up, Dana

I mean, in all seriousness, sooner than later he's gonna have to face a real test

It is kind of telling that they won't do a rematch with the guy who was beating him before the illegal knee stopped the fight

Can someone ask to jarebear why he put me on ignore?
He send me a private message because he was thinking about me having a beef with him for a stupid joke and when i tried to explain myself he probably put me on ignore.

I like to talk mma with the guy and i have absolutely no problem with him...

And after the under publicised match between costa and romero, ufc continue with his crazy management...

How in the fuck you can make lewis vs ivanov co-main even and not a fucking banger like gastelum vs till?
Who the fuck organise these events? Brendan fucking schaub??

Quite a few decent scraps in there.

I think Gaethje has this one if it ends in the first few rounds. He's an interesting one in lightweight, has similarities with the champ & if he can mix up the wrestling in with his striking he could be champ material.

Main event should be a banger. Hall vs Shoeface is a good fight, good to see Duffee back.

I am leaning Justin over Cowboy

Also, I am very interested to find out what the "big fight news" with Jon Jones is, dose he have the balls to fight Stipe?

finally got around to watching Paulo Costa vs Yoel Romero. MY GOODNESS WHAT A MONSTER CLASS. It felt like watching an anime about fighting like Baki the Grappler. Joe put it best though, Yoel is one of the most durable humans on the planet lol.

Yeah man, fight was a buh buh banger. Neither guy truly loses, in my eyes, in a fight like that
There are a good amount of fights that live up to the hype and this one lived it and was up there. Definitely one of my personal favorites of the year despite Rich Homie Romero losing.

I haven't found an official reason, only that he is out of the Kattar fight on Oct 18th

I am assuming injury

Edit

Pretty gutted, was looking forward to it. Apparently an injury, hopefully it's a quick turnaround.


Main card time.

Great submission win for Cirkunov, first Peruvian necktie for me. Did he mean it? Or was he rolled into it..
