Gus almost beat Jones and almost beat DC. In the DC fight especially, had he just avoided in the dirty boxing uppercuts, he would have won. I don’t count the Rumble loss because of the headbutt that came before the tko. I think Gus’s main problem has always been his mentality. Or maybe it was his confidence.
Finally got to see the main event of ufc 238 last night. Mad respect to Rivera and Yan. Fight could've really gone to both fighters. Rivera being such an underdog is disrespectful lol.
Valentina just doing valentina things. The most exciting female aside from Nunes.
Moraes vs Cejudo... was just meh to me. I will say that I find it weird that it seems like you have 2 tiny monster guys fighting each other just throwing loaded punches.
Cowboy vs Ferguson - What a fight from both fighters. Ferguson is a monster of a human. Such a relentless fighter and the dude must have some super heavy hands. He throws some weird and even sloppy looking punches but there is no denying the power behind each hit. You can see it in peoples reactions when they connect. Cowboy did some work but he would have benefited from a different gameplan. My personal fight of the night right there. Lots of respect between the two fighters. Even after that after the bell punch. I am not too sure what to think of it in the moment but the guys do respect each other. Both are warriors.
I dislike Dillon Danis. I never talked to the guy but I visited the gym where he trains in New York. The guy is an asshole and a bully, and I am not surprised he rubs a lot of people the wrong way. He "kicked" my training partner in the head ("fell into him") as revenge for bumping into him while sparring. Which happens. lots of people at Marcelos, everyone sort of roll into one another from time to time. I have never seen such douchery in a training environment. Obviously, he is amazing an grappler, but going after students? pfft. I hope this shithead gets wrecked.
Rooting Neiman Gracie instead. Will be interesting to see another Gracie besides Kron trying MMA.
Man, between UFC going to ESPN and Bellator going to DAZN, I have really fallen out of the MMA loop. Has this happened to anyone else? I feel like these were both terrible moves. I could be very wrong, though. I often am.
