DammitCormier looked okay, until when he started standing with flat feet and taking blows to the head and leaving the liver open constantly. I don't understand why he did that with someone taller and who has more (around 20cm) reach. He should have been closing the gap and taking Steepay down and constantly moving if take downs were not possible.

Re: MMA Thread - GOATs Only!

Wow what a night of fights. Both Romero/Costa and the ME were fantastic. The heavy shots in both were nuts.

This Costa guy is a beast and he's really going to be somebody.

The ME was nothing short of gruelling. DC was easily winning until round 4, tagging Stipe all over the place but credit to him he eat some hard shots. Stipe really proved his boxing is right up there to finish, excellent strategy. DC just didn't have much left by that point.

Great show.

Not sure if you notice but it's quite hard to have block your face and body at the same time, all the time. Hence when Stipe kept going to the liver, that forced DC to lower his hands to protect that area, which then left the head open to hit.




I agree he should have used more wrestling, but Stipe has fantastic wrestling himself and DC probably didn't want to gas himself out. He did sya after the fight he should have listened to coaches though

Re: MMA Thread - GOATs Only!

What is it with this sport and everyone rushing to push a fighter out the door after a loss? If DC decides to call it a day, it certainly won't be because he can't compete anymore. I think most people had him 3 rounds up heading into the 4th. Even saw some people on Twitter saying Romero is done after losing a relatively close decision to an undefeated young monster. Reminds me of when Aldo lost to Max and all of a sudden Stephens was going to mop the floor with him.

Don't mean to take anything away from Nate, but Pettis looked really bad. Never really gave himself a chance in the fight. Nate had way too easy a time walking him down and cutting off the cage. Great to have Nate back though. Hopefully he's looking to stay busy.

Pettis might as well change his name to Mr. Glass.

Buddy rarely gets out of a fight without breaking something.

Stop reading twitter comments lol, or at least take them seriously whatsoever

Re: MMA Thread - GOATs Only!

DC would still whoop pretty much every heavyweight in the UFC right now, and if he listened to his coaches most likely would have decisioned Stipe too (not taking anything away from Stipe).

The fact that some people don't realise they are being worked by Colby Covington is greatly amusing to me. Apparently they had to move some fighters away from him on
Saturday because they wanted to fight him

Are some fans & fighters really this dumb? Literally everything about him is designed to get heat. The MAGA hat, the shit eating grin, carrying the fake belt everywhere he goes, the "people's champ" shirt. He even comes out to Kurt Angle's music. Maybe it's because I like pro wrestling & can spot a gimmick better than most, but I just don't understand how people can't see this shit is a character. Fair play to him anyway, it's working.

Even the Trumps are getting worked. He didn't even vote for him

Might have watched DC get his ass beaten at least 50 times.

This is what heaven feels like.
