This card sucks.

I hope Karolina pulls it out but she may not have the wrestling/ground game to stop Claudia.

I think this is the fight that Aldo shows his wear and tear from over the years and Holloway puts him out.

Things I'm looking forward to about this show:

1) Aldo/Holloway
2) Debut of Moraes

That is all.

I usually leave work early on a Saturday for a ppv. I think I'll just be good catching the main event here.

Yuri just got tapped by a dude making his debut who hadn't fought in 15 months. Wow.

Yamasaki let Eduardo take about ten seconds worth of late punches there.

Marlon clearly won that fight, but that was a tough matchup they shouldn't have given him.

WTF THAT DECISION.

I gave him 1 and 3 without any thought. Bad judging.

Erick Silvia is working his way into a Bellator title shot.

Claudia needs another title shot. She beat Joanna in their first fight.

Hell of a fight. The killer Jose showed back up for the first time in a while.

Max knew what he was doing by taking it slow, letting Aldo throw some fireworks early.  By the end of 2nd round you could see Aldo's mouth wide open breathing heavy like clockwork, and then that's exactly when Max turned up the volume.

Good stuff.

Max is too real. Top shelf g. Telling Stann to interview Aldo first because it's his town.

The best part was when Holloway wins the title and has to ask for a performance bonus.

Rematch or Frankie?
Title: Re: UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway
Post by: Firmino of the 909 on June 03, 2017, 04:07:18 PM
Edgar or Cub is the question, I think. Edgar really wanted to fight Lamas but I'm not sure there's anyone you can have Cub fight in the interim.

Edgar/Holloway with Cub/Aldo on the co main event

Other than the Aldo fight Frankie has starched everyone at 145. Cub has 3 wins in a row, but nothing marquee. Before those wins are back to back loses to Frankie and Max.

At least Max winning opens up new matches on top.

Wonder what Aldo's excuse will be?

Claudia needs another title shot. She beat Joanna in their first fight.

She didn't but she certainly gave Joanna her toughest fight and deserves a rematch.

I'm sure he'll cite some leg injury as the reason he threw no low kicks.

Aldo's  next fight is at 155, mark my words.
