Colby vs burns is nonsenical... like real dumb

Colby beats the guy usman jus put down 3 times in 2 rds and tko'd he gets to fight Usman?

Burns fights the number 1 contender so if he wins he gets another shot alrdy? And if he loses then what? Back to 55?

Seems like they just wanna round robin.

Sort of MMA related but Oklahoma football player gets beat up by a MMA fighter. No that I am a fighter but this is my biggest fear now that the one person you want to fight with is an actual MMA fighter.

So rather than have a new contender possibly get beat by Gaethje, they give Tony the call.

Will be legit rooting for Tony to wash Chandler, although I highly doubt it happens at this point

My guess is Gaethje turned down the Chandler fight. It seemed like Hooker was only top guy who accepted Chandler fight initially. I'm also hoping Tony gives us at least one more good performance and finishes Chandler and derails his hype train.

looks like they are probably suing
had to have surgery on eye

This is why if you get into a fight and you see someone recording it you take their phone and smash it. It’ll make one night ruin your life

Dude in jean jacket got destroyed, almost got killed. Look like he was the one who shoved dude so he got what was coming
Yeah nope. I'm not rocking with the dude "gave us no choice" argument after a light pressing of the shoulder lol. Unless I missed something, that was a weak *** prelude to a downright washing by two trained fighters, apparently. If they have formal training they are going to go to jail. In fact, they could have just ruined their lives if ole OK boys get the right attorneys.

That being said, I don't **** with anybody at any time. You're gonna have to do a lot to get me to show emotion these days. Between mma and guns, you just never know.

True. Depending on what really went down which we don't know if these fighters are high level then yeah perhaps was excessive. At first glance those douche bags deserved to get pounded out. By actual high level fighters? Maybe, maybe not

I tend to not really care as much in this particular situation. Not ready to cape for some random looking good ole boys

Those are one of those fights that should be left as a tall tale. I am going to say the old man thing but I've seen so many fights in my days at school and all were left as gossip between classes. I am not saying ol' boy deserves to lose an eye but you play with fire......

I bet the MMA guys at most will just lose some money to either being sued or spending a lot on lawyers.

I’ve been in that bar a bunch of times. It’s full of those types of people. Weirdo boys that can’t get girls and settle for fighting dudes. The guy who admitted that they have wrestled and have done MMA is ****ed. Might have sounded cool to say online but that didn’t help his case at all. Maybe hitting him once would fly in court, but everything after that is over. There’s no defending that. Dudes have lawyered up too.

all this because dudes want to post ransoms fight online. Mind your damn business and keep it moving

Usman initially called out Masvidal shortly after his win against Gilbert Burns in Las Vegas earlier this month but seemed to recant some days later on social media when he announced that “anyone can get it”. Masvidal, though, says that Usman’s reluctance is because he doesn’t like his chances in a fight in which Masvidal will have a full training camp. He took last summer’s fight on just six days’ notice."

“This fight’s not dead,” Helwani told Daniel Cormier on Monday on ESPN. “Honestly, I’d be shocked if this fight doesn’t happen… They’re pretty close from what I’m told.

I think we all knew the Usman-Masvidal rematch was a real possibility and it appears to be close now. Obviously I'm not that excited for it as I think the 2nd fight goes similarly to the first. Let's just hope they don't hold up the division until the fall and they don't coach TUF.

No love for the Valentina/Andrade fight announcement? Lol. Finally a WFLW fight to look forward to. Valentina should win a UD just off her counter striking alone. But like we've seen in the first Rose and Chookagian fight, Andrade got that great equalizer.
