Lewis came into this fight with a torn MCL and ACL which is why his coaches were so desperate that he get the finish in round two, they knew his knee was going to give out. I'm totally ok with him taking a solid 9 months to a year off from the sport to get his body together, between that and his back issues it sounds like he's constantly in pain.

It speaks to Masvidal's OG rep that leading into the fight this weekend we've heard a substantial level of decline in the amount of shit talking Darren Till would usually throw around. He knows who he's fighting.

On Feb. 19, police conducted a welfare check on Tony Ferguson after he made unknown threats, and his wife and son left their house, according to a separate police report. Police spoke to an unidentified female who stated Tony Ferguson had “not slept for three days and was tearing apart the home” and “broke apart the fire place and believed someone placed a (computer) chip in his leg.” An unidentified male who’d called the police said the fighter had told him “someone was inside his walls.” Nearly two hours after the police made contact, Cristina Ferguson told police her husband’s trainer couldn’t get him to leave the house to see a doctor.

Just three days earlier, on Feb. 16, Cristina Ferguson called police from a nearby park after leaving their home. She said that, while Tony Ferguson hadn’t been violent to her or anyone else, she was concerned for her husband’s well being. In police comments on the incident report, she reported that “he kept throwing ‘holy water’ at her,” and his condition – redacted in the report – had been getting worse. He’d also refused to go to a hospital for an evaluation.

The top of 155 is ruled by the most fucked up fighters. Khabib, Tony and Conor are all walking disasters.

Yeah he's gonna give all those guys CTE. I genuinely don't see how it could go any other way.

Also, I know someone who had a breakdown and said all the same kind of stuff Tony was saying. People are saying it isn't normal to get mental illness but his age but that happens frequently. I have absolutely no doubt that his wife is telling the truth because what she said, you can only tell people about that if you've actually heard it.

Well he takes a lot of shots to the head so the whole mental illness at that age thing is a bit different than the average person without knowing his family history about it. With going through seeing someone fall apart mentally recently I would think drugs like meth but Tony has always been adamant about being sober since he gave up drinking when he was younger.

It's really reminding me of the mental breakdown Rampage had a decade ago just by the ways their mental states were described at the time.

Masvidal just sent Darren Till to the shadow realm.

That fight was wild, and seeing Masvidal win like that on that stage, against that level of opponent was very satisfying. He's a true OG fighter.

And Masvidal might have thrown away any company goodwill as he started a backstage brawl with Edwards.

The judges were smoking with some of hem giving the nod to Gunnar and to Reyes.

Masvidal looked so awesome. Him vs Edwards now makes a lot of sense. Needs to be on the big card.

I remember saying four years ago that Gunnar was too small for 170 and it showed again. If he can't take his opponent down then he really struggles.

I'm a Reyes fan so maybe I'm biased but I think that fight was closer then people are making it out to be. Volkan's two takedowns in the first lead to nothing and Dom got right back up from them and his striking was on point, he definitely lost the second round and the third was close. Not a robbery by any means.

Nathaniel Wood and Petr Yan are the future at bantamweight, keep those dudes as far away from each other as possible until it's absolutely necessary.

I think in the near future we're going to see somebody either get kicked out or be asked to leave ATT. Between Woodley, Ponzi, Covington and Masvidal along with Askren cross-training there it's going to be a logjam at 170.
