Eugh. Tarec is the stand-up version of lay and pray. Not interested.

My initial instinct says Robbie runs through him so long as his chin isn't wrecked. I have to see more of their fights though.

Cowboy looks like shit against good southpaws. If RDA and Nate can destroy him like that, Lawler should be able to. Pettis also wrecked him when fighting southpaw.

Theyre in a similar spot at this point chin-wise.  Difference here is Robbie will be coming off a 9 month layoff with little to know sparring by his own admission.  Cerrone just took a a concussion combo-meal.  It points to Robbie laying him out.

Cerrone would have to fight extremely patiently.

Kelvin tested positive for a lot of weed in-competition so the Anderson fight has been cancelled. What a joke.

He's been pulled from the fight. It's not cancelled. Romero will fight Anderson but only if it's for an interim belt.

Fighters Only is citing a source saying that Vitor is stepping in for Kelvin and fighting Anderson. Please both dudes retire afterwards if true.

Pretty sure 145 is going to be abolished. Once de Randamie said she needed surgery that was the end of it.

And Cyborg has two fights left on her deal and Bellator would make a hard play for her. Without Cris the division is toast.

Vitor knocks out Anderson IMO. Those bombs he was throwing at Kelvin somebody can only take if they have a chin like Kelvin.

I told you guys I had a reason to believe in Vitor's old man boxing and power, but I didn't take into account Kelvin's weed-strengthened chin.

That's not a joke, the Diaz bros know wtf is up.

Apparently Aldo wants to be a boxer after his contract is up, but I think he's delusional if he believes his chin can hold up against more accurate, harder punches.

Nick is the payday and fun fight, Yoel brings the title shot. Holy shit at wanting to fight Yoel though, Anderson is still the man. Never forget the 2006-2013 run of dominance, and don't discount the warrior spirit he's had since his debut TWENTY YEARS AGO THIS JUNE 25TH BAH GAWWWWD

BAH GAWD THEY HAVE A FIGHT NIGHT ON THAT DATE IN OKLAHOMA KEVIN LEE AND CHIESA CANT CARRY THAT SHIT KEEP BJ AS THE CO MAN AND PUT ANDERSON VS YOEL AS THE MAIN EVEN THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SPIDAHHHHH

The fight was fun in the moment bc you kept getting little glimpses of a skilled exchange and anticipating more. When you rewatch it the magic is gone. It's dull.

The most unspoken truth in mma is that you can make a fairly compelling argument for Nick being the most overrated fighter of all time but the Diaz brothers (and not undeservedly) have some of the most passionate fans in the sport who'd shut that shit down pretty quick regardless of how good the argument is.

If Nick was named Vitor Belfort, I would agree. It is very likely factual that the only fighter Vitor ever beat when off gear was a 45 year old Dan Henderson.

Even if I take them out, there's still a great argument against Vitor. Companies have been able to make money off him for 20 years now because he beat Tank Abbott.

I'd say that Vitor even had a chance to have a 2nd career was because he beat Tank Abbott.  If we count that era of his career (obv juiced) then it is more accurate, IMO to say that the only reason he's had a career for the last 4 years is because of his 2008-2013 run of utter destruction.  Lost to Jones/prime Silva an absolutely WASTED everyone else.

Wanderlei was on gear too, cancels out. Same with Bisping if you believe Rampage, Hendo too.

It's funny that you bring that up though, because before TRT Vitor was always thought of as someone who should have been elite, but always lost to every elite guy he fought. It's funny now how people don't even take that stuff into account. 2013 never forget.

I would also say that Vitor at 185 was clean except when he got the TRT exemption. There was a clear difference between the guy that knocked out Rockhold and the guy that knocked out Akiyama.

Cyborg says she's fighting de Randamie for the hardly existent 145 pound belt at UFC 214.

On the same show DC is supposed to defend against Manuwa or Jones.

And it's in Anaheim and I can't go!
