Sean “Edgelord” Strickland got his account suspended to the surprise of no one.

“I had never seen anyone quite as vocal as Kayla, aside from Colby (Covington), but Colby was the one who was asked to leave.

Is Chael lowkey implying that JudoBae is MAGA? Or is this as simple as Nunes felt threatened by Kayla coming for her spot?

I think that was the first card I've ever seen with multiple women's matches that all ended in finishes.

I thought that was a really fun card last night. I was pretty impressed with Karine Silva too.

random, but I just realized over the past nine years that Jon Jones's only two finishes were in fights he tested positive for, one of which turned into an NC

Shit. Now a retirement.

Yeah that was a brutal KO. Looked like a Flair Flop for Joanna.

That was an all-time classic title fight. Glover had him dead, and pulled guard. Bummer ending.

Glover was up on two of the score cards. Was on his way to a UD
That’s what kills me. If he could have hung on another 30 seconds or so, I was sure he would have won that fight. I might be wrong, but caught up in the heat of watching it as it happened, that is certainly the way I felt.

You wanna know how I know I’m old?

Frank Mir’s daughter Bella is now 18 years old, 3-0 as a professional (2 by submission) and is going to Iowa in September for college and to wrestle.

Man, I know he was a big favorite, but I didn’t think Rakhmonov would dominate Neil Magny as easily as he did. WW is going to have some fun matchups for the next 3 years.

Rakhmanov and Khamzat are the next gen. Usman is gonna lose badly to one of those guys, and honestly people are sleeping on Leon Edwards right now. The first fight was seven years ago when he was 23, his striking and defensive grappling look worlds better at this point.

Usman is much improved too obviously, but it will be a much more difficult fight this time around imo. Leon is getting the same odds as Covington did in his rematch, which shows you the amount of respect he's getting, especially as a guy with no wrestling background. I might put a bet on it.

I do think Usman will win the fight, but I am glad that Leon is finally getting his title shot.

I also think it was a pretty smart call out, maybe even one the UFC gave Rakhmanov to want a fight with Wonder Boy. I could see that headlining a Fight Night at the Apex in November or December.
