Like everything else I watch live, I'm usually listening to something else, most often podcasts. Although, to be fair, that and the fact that I've been watching this shit for a decade, and I still don't really understand what I'm looking at are probably related.
The whole bar was murmuring amongst themselves when the kick happened and suddenly everyone roared and rushed to get a better view of the replay. I had my phone in my hand and was about to say good night and try and beat traffic.
I'd also make Chimaev fight someone else and make 170 before he gets a title shot. I'm guessing the re-match is there for Usman if he wants it, but this is pretty great how all the pre-fight stuff the UFC honestly likes because it gets people talking but it could have legit blown out the top 3 fights on a PPV card. Maybe they don't care because it wasn't going to be a lot of buys, but its not a great look if people do have to pull out.
And yeah if Chimaev was 8 to 10 lbs. over he certainly didn't care.
