oh btw nice to see ring girls with an ***.

If Vitor is to get Bones again, he needs to use his damn strikes.. Use what got you there and make Bones think before throwing.. great outing by Vitor. That kick was fast and lethal.
Jones has too much on his plate already, first Chael, then Cormier, and maybe Anderson after those two... so Vitor should look elsewhere. I'd personally love to see him against Hector Lombard, two great strikers going at it, would be a great matchup
I'm always happy to discuss anything from hoops, to hockey, to reality TV with anyone that is polite no matter what their opinion. With that said if you are disrespectful poster please do not expect a reply.
i agree it's a terrible matchup i have no intrest in seeing Sonnen and Jones. Sonnen couldn't beat Jones on his best day.
Vitor never lets me down, this is the one legend out there that can still be a threat. Silva, Big Nog, Rampage, BJ just can't get it done anymore but Vitor is still at the top of his game. Bisping looked confident in there and i thought he had a good chance to win, guess not.
He would last as long as Anderson would allow him to survive....
Gonzaga is someone I often considered wasted talent. The Cro Cop high kick win was the worst thing that ever happened to him. It made him famous, it made him popular, but after that he decided he was going to start kick boxing with all of his opponents and he completely neglected the best part of his game which was his ground game.
There are a lot of fights he should have won that he didn't win. Couture, Werdum, Carwin and Schaub are fights where he completely had a mental lapse and lost.
Who knows maybe this is his comeback.
Gabriel Gonzaga doesn't have the tools to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship. His BJJ is solid but won't mean a thing against your fighters like Alistair Overeem, Cain Velasquez or Junior Dos Santos that are all worlds better in the standup. He doesn't stand a chance of getting those guys to the ground either...
Happy to see Bisping get KTFO again. Ever since the Rivera fight I can't stand the guy. He talks so much crap, but can never back it up. And I don't think it was a quick stoppage, Vitor had him hurt real bad, turtling and not doing anything but take punches will result in a stoppage.
Where do they go from here? I'm thinking Bisping will get a favorable match-up again. Someone like Brunson or CB. By now we know the UFC's formula when it comes to Bisping. The fight that makes the most sense though, is a fight vs Belcher. Both are coming off losses, but I doubt the UFC makes it happen.
As for Vitor, he wants to fight Jones, but that's not happening. I know Lombard is busy with Okami, but I say scratch that fight and make Vitor vs Lombard instead. Or assuming Chael can't fight Jones for whatever reason, Vitor vs Chael sounds good.
CB showed a much improved chin, which is weird to say. The fight could have gone either way, but I think his size was the deciding factor, especially in the 3rd when he managed to reverse position and get on top. Serafian looked good, but I think he should consider a drop to 170 because he looked really small compare to CB.
Barboza looked like the killer he was before he had that setback vs Varner. I would love to see him get a step up in competition, maybe one of the SF fighters. Thompson, Healy or even Noons.
Lentz did what I feared he would do. I knew if he got the fight to the ground he would use his trademark GnP (and I used that term loosely) and make it an ugly fight. I just figure Nunez would have enough of a TDD to keep it standing, but alas, he did not.
Nurmagomedov was awesome, he really is looking like the real deal. Can't wait to see what the UFC has plan for him, but I think he's a handful for anyone, I doubt there are many LW wanting to fight him right now.
Boy was I wrong about the Craig/Markes fight. I thought we would see a good back and forth, but we got the opposite. Markes made Lentz loox exciting and that's never a good thing.
Does anyone else think Nobre was faking it? I saw the replay a lot and I didn't see one punch land to the back of the head. It wasn't until Dan (who had an awful night reffing) warned Alcantara that Nobre started to protect his head. I hate to say it, but Nobre took the easy way out. He was taking a beating and instead of taking the loss, he found a way out.
