The women are pretty creative and can do thing a man can’t do. Look at that leverage flip at the 9 min mark.. she turned her over with one leg and nothing to push against

Yeah but many fight like they are underwater. Painful to watch. But I agree. Similarly applies to lighterweight fighters. Take Demeterious Johnson as the perfect example.

Very likely has to do with the fact that they can't rely on power and become complacent with their "technique". We can name plenty of fighters like that. Derrick Lewis being the perfect example.

Fight of the year. Props to Ortega I think he might have taken him in the sixth round;)

Mounted choke and didn’t tap him in R3 was impressive

What cured my issues was one of the members suggested "change out your keyboard". Well, This ol' pack rat just happened to have an old COMPAQ keyboard in the garage. Swapped it out and so far so good.

Brian's heart, Volk's will & the back & forth drama make it hard to top.
Did you happen to catch any of Volk's & Hooker's post fight podcast with the Schmo?

Spoiler, watched 3 times it was so good

Holloway vs Yair








Awesome fight, no idea what the judges were watching for 2 to say 48/47..

Yair got the first, leg kicks and out struck Max. Didn’t really hurt him but clearly won it
Max got the second, not close was hurting Yair and walking forward the whole time
Max won third bigly, take downs and ground and pound, indisputable
Max won the fourth, almost choked him out dominated on the feet and the ground. The one time Yair reversed, Max got right up. Not saving Yair did land but clear cut victory. a brutal body work display by. Max and you could see Yair was hurting
Fifth again clearly Max, he walked straight through Yair

Most impressive the way max just ate the calf kicks over and over to come forward and dominate. Lol Bisping, Max won’t have a leg by the third. I was a bit concerned but max just walked through. It was a willpower exercise


49/46 at worst

Just got chills reading that. Max is a frikkng cyborg! He must have very dense bones cause at 145 thats about all he is!

Yair looked fantastic, especially considering the layoff.

The whole 10 point must system appropriated from boxing has got to go!

Sick card.

Yair was a beast and full of his high skill tricky elbows and out of nowhere kicks, just underpowered

What did you score it?

I never score them according to the Unified Rules but definitely had Max ahead and if the fight kept going it would likely see Max getting stronger as Yair fades.

Way back when he died it was well know Lee like marijuana. Whether he got into hard core stuff I never heard mentioned back then.

Saw some bare knuckle women's fights. Never knew this was a thing. Pretty brutal actually.
