The most accurate statement of the night. You could tell Joe was going to let him say whatever he wanted to say.

He's been in awesome fights but is like an actually skilled Leben. His best wins besides Anjos come from him looking like he did post this fight. Even in this fight I was pulling my hair out for him to fight smarter. But the way he pushed through and put the stamp on this fight made me really down for this dude

Don't know how Alvarez was still able to fight effectively after those leg kicks. At the same time, I don't know why Gaethje didn't throw more of those in the 2nd.

Of course Max was gonna win that, but Herb sucks. Just a dumb dumb place to stop it based on the logic of what a stoppage is.

Max is great and all but... the matchup is terrible for an Aldo that's fading on power, gasses in 7 minutes and certainly lacks length.

Aldo can still beat anyone in the division not named McGregor (who's never coming back) and Holloway.

I think the really hot one is his wife, the older one his mom and the other his sister. But I have no actual reason for believing that.

I don't think its even fair to say that Aldo's power is fading. He was never much of a one punch KO king, and Max has a granite chin. He's always had suspect cardio but Max is one of the few guys to actually attack his body. Plus, the amount of strikes Holloway lands only adds to the fading.

Like I said earlier, Ngannou is everything Overeem tried to be via science in his peak Ubereeem phase. Ngannou s. AJ would be a waste of a fight.

Really? Has he actually missed weight? I know he struggled in his fight with Tony but he was also fighting a staph infection so I’m sure that played a role.

Lee did a media scrum yesterday and said he’s staying at 155. He also said he weighs 188. WHAT THE FUCK.

188 is big for 155 but he's not in camp now, and he's still a far cry from Hendricks ballooning up to 220 between fights.

Yeah 188 out of camp isn't too bad. I can imagine him being down to 175 - 178 in camp. Still a big cut but he's never had any problems before this has he?
