Now that was a great fight

Man oh man. Burgos walks through shots... just didn't have the output and Emmett can definitely take a shot as well.

 

UFC 251 looking nice. Namajunas  is one of my favorite fighters. Putting Paige van Zant with the other 4 fights is a joke though.

This is one of the dirty things about individual sports. The bad/desperate coaches will push their athlete until they make them famous or until the athlete completely breaks down, at which point the coach will just toss them in the dumpster. 

 

The minute a fighter asks for the fight to be stopped, the corner should be obligated to throw the towel in, regardless of whether they agree. If its a mental block thing with their fighter (and not physical), then that is something they can figure out in training, not during the time they're locked in the cage with a trained killer.

Yeah that was bad.  Robert Drysdale has no regrets about doing so either.. he claims that  "he called it off" at the last second of the 60 second round stoppage...  I would need to re-watch closely to see if he is correct but I don't really buy it when the fighter says this

 

'Rob, call it. I don't want to do this anymore': Max Rohskopf is forced to withdraw from his debut UFC bout after the second round.

Green with a weird arm in triangle choke. The announcers didn't mention but the pulling on the top of the head must have helped cause the tap.

Hahaha ahhhh man. Producers must have a coronary every time Mike Perry just starts in with his stream-of-consciousness way of speaking. Man's a wild card.

It's almost unfair that these guys all have to fight in the same division. About 4-5 guys that are legit contenders.

Dustin Poirier really poured it on. Mostly defensive/desperation takedowns from Hooker the last two rounds.

I am happy to be wrong. Surprised the take downs didn't sway the judges. thought that would meant something. Dustin looked better later on, that should matter most. .

You have to be stupid to get so close to sweat, blood and other bodily fluids in time of pandemic.
