    Baraboza vs gaethje this weekend

    Bookies favour edson, but I think gaethje has the perfect style to beat edson

    He has excellent cardio plus fights at a very high pace

    If edson doesn't land something huge early I can see him getting tired and gaethje finishing him in the later rounds

    With gaethje though it is surely a matter of time until his chin completely gives up, he blocks way way too many striker with his face

    To be an all time great you need to have multiple title defences

    Longevity is what truly seperates the best from others

    That doesn't mean Conor wasnt very very good though, obviously he was

    i knew CMG was a phony after skinny **** diaz battered him to pieces. Khabib completely exposed him and now hes gone.

    Define phony. He got beat by Khabib, but Khabib is the most dominant lightweight ever, so hardly a big knock on Conor that he lost to him, and he was hardly exposed, as its not like there are many other guys in MMA who can do what Khabib does. He holds wins over Aldo, Holloway, Poirier, Mendes, Diaz and Alvarez. He's still a top tier mixed martial artist, which people seem to have forgotten in his absence. He's a **** admittedly, and his actions out of the cage have made me go off him significantly in the last 18 months, but lets not get it twisted, he was still a 2-weight World Champion and has beaten everyone he's faced in the UFC apart from Khabib.

    Phony - Ronda rousey and CMG. two of the most overhyped pampered UFC stars ever. As soon as they stepped up in competition they got battered. Two division champ you say? awesome, but how many titles defenses did he have? Aldo defended his title for years and years , halloway is showing hes a true champ by defending his belt, mayweather defended his titles for decades. Those are " champs" ..... these two are more of a dana white reality show that came to a halt when reality was exposed. Defined

    Getting beat by Khabib is hardly anything to be ashamed of, he has the perfect style and lets face it is just the better mma fighter. Again nothing to be ashamed of nobody at 155 has anything for Khabib bar maybe Tony.

    That 1 loss doesn’t or shouldn't define years of a career that had some very good wins.

    Loool doubting Ronda
    She was clearly the best for a decent length of time
    She’d lose now but in 10 years time all the WMMA fighters will make the current ones look trash so if you’re taking that logic then just write off Nunes while you’re at it
    Can only fight what’s in front of you and she destroyed everyone up to the Holm fight

    You're a strange bloke Joe. I have never quite understood how you have such hatred towards CMG and Dana yet don't even like the sport
    They've been trying to sell for a while now apparently, don't think it's a rush job. If it's true (Dana has already denied it) then Dana is more than likely gone 9% of $3/4 billion yeah he isn't staying, Rogan possibly retiring too :s . Say what you want about them, but if they left you're going to miss them.

    no, I wont because I don't watch UFC... matter of fact I don't like it. Im boxing fan, never cared for dudes rolling on the floor hugging each other. White and the fertittas are just getting some karma thrown there way for under paying there fighters. and honestly, if I was a ufc fan dana white would be the last guy I miss. From what I have seen he chooses favorites and gives special treatment to them. Its a sinking ship and white is the cause of it... I think the fertittas finally had enough and said there cashing out, looks like there not pleased with how hes been runnin the company.

    :D no. Last week when you started listing off your favourite fighters and they where all strong wrestlers i just remembered that conversation we had and thought hang on a second this was the same guy that said that.... wasn't sure if it was you or that Ash fella so went back to check. Guess a lot changes in 2 years eh Joe? :D

    Ridiculous set of fights there, not 1 bad fight. UFC match making deserve a pat on the back for that lot.

    So pleased Marreta is getting a title shot. I just hope he fights how he's capable of and doesn't show up gun-shy and tentative. He's got a hell of a chin, as he proved against Manuwa and brutal, brutal power, he just needs to let it go. He tends to not do it in the big fights though, he was real tentative first round against Blachowicz and was losing that fight until he finally woke up in the 3rd. Hope he doesn't come out like that against Jones, he needs to go at him.

    He was rattled before the Aldo fight, obsessed since he was sparked.

    Gaethje should win. Barboza struggles against pressure fighters and has a suspect chin. I'm expecting a highlight from 'The Highlight'.

    :D ok we'll see..... Santos is gonna gas it's inevitable. When Jon survives it's going to be along night for him. Easy 50-45 or ref stoppage.

    Oof. Justin Gaethje again, what a savage. Love watching that dude fight, superb performance. Great comeback from him in his last 2 after back-to-back defeats.

    It didn't get out of hand when he riled up his fanbase against Khabib by using terrorist slurs on his family?

    About time the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ talker gets a taste of his own medicine.
