As soon as RDA beat Pettis, I knew Khabib would be champ by the end of the year.

Looks like UFC has declined to re-sign Phil Davis, expect Bellator to lock him up the second that happens. First Fitch and Okami, then Shields, now Davis. If you're a dominant Top 5 grappler you'd better be the most exciting fucking grappler in mma because if you aren't UFC wants no part of you.

It's the same principle as the other 3. From an entertainment perspective it's totally justified.

BUT, if you want to call yourself the place where all the best fighters in the world are....well....you can't really do that.

While I'll totally see Davis as a top ten guy. I really had no interest in seeing him fight again anytime soon. He wasn't at all fun to watch. He'll run off a handful of wins in a row and find his way back.

The Fitch firing, while on the same lines was total bullshit. At the time he was still legit top 5.

Davis is a legit top five right now too, IMO.

Nope but Cormier didn't have a solid LHW win going into the Jones fight so his ranking was always inflated from the jump.

So the longest game in the 115-year history of the Boston Red Sox was about as long as the average UFC event.

Unintended self-mockery. Or maybe he knows that UFC events have become too tedious.

It doesn't, but if every fight is a decision it starts to get wearing... that's a LOT of fighting to sit through, no matter how interested you are in it.

Ronda is on Piper's podcast this week....(errr last week) and is well worth the listen. Piper is far more cognitive than usual and Ronda sells her next fight as a Shamrock/Ortiz revenge style feud that made me wish the fight was NOW.

Nate's sounded pretty bad with how often he's gone off on the UFC lately but this is 100% class, wish more fighters would get involved in these types of exhibition matches.

Ben Askren vs Sapo Santos ends in a No Contest due to Sapo being poked in the eye. Really, really shitty ending to what looked like the first legit test of Askren's career. Santos was doing work against him.

I heard Sapo was beating him but was slowing down. The eyepoke definitely influenced things though.

I'd be curious to see how easy it was for Sapo to stuff those initial takedowns. Might say a lot about a fight with someone like Lawler or Johny.

I'll need to watch it for myself. It sounds like people are saying Sapo was gassing because Askren's corner was telling him that but who knows.

And as much as I like Ben's dickish attitude it's a straight up bitch move to come out on the mic afterwards and say that Santos wanted a way out. I think Ben was pissed that he was getting beat.

Guys, it happened 2 minutes into a 5 round fight. Not fair to either party to say one was winning and one was losing.

Of all sports, can't we admit that a shitload can happen in under two minutes in MMA? If a fight is action-packed, as this was according to smart Twitter people, there's lots to analyze.

I think people just don't want to admit that Askren looked bad even though it's the overwhelming opinion. I think it'd be foolish to say he was on his way to losing the fight but the reality is that he did not look good. And this is against a fighter who, outside of Jay Heiron (a fight you could argue he lost) was his toughest opponent but still nowhere close to UFC level.

Was Askren losing the first 2 minutes of a 25 minute fight? Yes.
Did it look like Sapo was gassing out? Yes (after 2 minutes of a 25 minute fight).
Did the eye poke happen while Askren was finishing a takedown? Yes.

Who knows what would of happened, but I'm not jumping all over the anti-Askren talk.

I agree with everything you said, and I feel like my post said as much. I am fairly confident Askren probably would have ended up winning, and  I think I've made my Askren fandom well-known here in the past.

I don't know how that could be considered anti-Askren, unless you're referring to stuff on Twitter.
