@Hideff.. absolutely agree. He believed he would dominate Luque on the ground and paid the price for it. Even myself thought he would grind Luque out.

Just saying Curtis Blaydes did the same thing to Lewis as Gane did before he got uppercutted to death going back to his roots with the wrestling, Blaydes ain’t even the best stand up fighter in the world, and he did that. This isn’t to **** on Gane, Gane is really good, I won a bit on Gane by Ko as I thought he was gonna kick the **** out of his legs and body

Also, still pissed off that a judge gave it to Kenny, as I thought that fight was a clear 30-27 for Song, going forward shouldn’t get you decsion if the guy your fighting is doing more damage, Going forward achieve nothing beside getting you ass kick quicker

Vicente should fight Leon for a title elimanter, both guy never fought for the title and are on good win streaks 

Also, Aldo boxing looked increable

DamienHandel420 Curtis Blaydes did not do the "same thing" as Ciryl Gane, Blaydes landed some solid jabs and straights and that's it. Ciryl did all that along with leg and body kicks and clinch work (each of those clinch knees took some Lewis's will away) which tired out Lewis, but that's not even worth arguing about. Your point is that Blaydes is dumb and should've won the fight. We agree but just remember that in the future when you wanna pick Blaydes to beat another cerebral fighter.

So Leon after 2 years off and beating Nate 'The Punching Bag' Diaz, and poking Belal 'the bum" Muhammad's eye out, Leon deserves a title shot HAHAHA? I dont even think that's worth discussion but I'll humor you. Burns and Covington got title fights after needing 20+ mins with Woodley.. Luque needed 4.5 mins to finish Woodley... then he comes in and subs a Chiesa who had a 4 fight win streak and a recent win over RDA who was the replacement fighter for the #1 contender fight at 155Lbs. Your math isn't adding up. Tell Leon go fight Masvidal and avenge that 3 piece and a soda Jorge gave him back stage. Leon should not sniff a title shot until he beats 2 more people. Masvidal then maybe Burns or Covington.

Can I just say that I am sick and tired of the friendship between Luque and Burns? 

There's not much space in the top 5, and if these guys continue to refuse to fight each other, it will stagnate the division.

Other than that, grow up. You're a professional fighter. No more kiddy ****, there's no making friends in the UFC.

Speedo424 that stupid comment you made just shows how disloyal of a person you are. You should inform yourself more before saying stuff about people needing to "grow up" and other things disparaging someone's character. Burns and Luque have known each other for 10 years, before either of them were in the UFC. They've helped each other train for fights for years. So now they're supposed to fight now for what? Money? Your entertainment? Just really shows the low morality of humans on this earth today. Burns and Luque do not have to fight each other ever and it will not stagnate anything. They have 5 years in age difference and are on different career timelines. Here's a thought... they will fight those in the top 5 that they can and then just fight people outside of the top 5... BRILLIANT! Who could've ever thought of that????

Spotlight23 what did you expect from Chiesa? Some of you MMA fans are embarrassing. At least in every other sports there is a sense of loyalty to athletes that the hypothetical fan is rooting for win lose or draw. In MMA as soon as a fighter loses, we are talking badly about them, and now we're tagging his tapology page (that he'll never read) and talking down to him/her because they lost a professional fight (to a top 5 opponent). He's allowed to be critical of himself not you. The saddest part of it all is the majority of you type of fans can't fight if your life depended on and never have fought. Just maybe got bullied here or there. Any one who has really fought a significant amount of times has a certain level of respect for people who fight professionally and always understand that losing a fight is nothing to be shamed over. Again, it's embarrassing on your behalf 
Spotlight23 WE HAVE TO BE BETTER AS A COMMUNITY

@PlusmoneyGod

I would agree with you, were it not the welterweight division at this time. Covington is now lined up for the title shot, and the next top contender spot (assuming Usman wins again, which I believe he will) hangs between Luque and Durinho. The other two guys in the top 5 (namely Thompson and Edwards) are in no shape for a title fight right now. 

If I were the matchmaker, I would force Luque and Burns to fight after (and again, if) Usman beats Covington.

Speedo424 Luque will get the next title shot, Burns will fight Leon or Masvidal. You cant force anyone to fight anyone, and the UFC won't try. "Yea Nate Diaz .. we need you to fight Nick Diaz bcuz you know... stagnation of the division... so what you're brothers and care about each other. We are forcing you to fight"... imagine that haha


just please don't say this again when Aljamain refuses to fight Merab or Gastelum refuses to fight Uriah Hall or Vettori or even Strickland maybe. Relationships are important in fighting just like everywhere else my guy

Ciryl Gane vs Anybody

Predictions: 11 of 13 Winners, 4 Perfect, 690 Points   |   Tied for 132nd



The Great Gane moneyline. I'll first admit this is a much less sophisticated Ngannou but unfortunately this is a much less sophisticated Ciryl. My take: Fernand Lopez is coaching Francis because A) Francis was likely the emphasis of the sparring because he was the bigger fighter; it's likely Francis's camp (hard sparring would usually happen in a camp) and Ciryl was the "training partner" B) Sorry to say Francis needed it ATM and Ciryl didn't. Ciryl is not even trying to land on him. BUT HE STILL COULD AT WILL HAHAHA. Ciryl is SOON TO BE THE BEST HW IN THE MMA HISTORY. Ngannou better try to rekindle that Jon Jones fight so he can get a title defense.
