I saw "Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson arrested". Wasn't guessing identity theft.

So I didn't even know Ngannou/Lewis II was finalized but apparently Dana said that's the fight and Stipe is fighting the winner.

He’s called Jones bluff,
Jones isnt long hauling it at HW. I think it’s a GSP situation, he has 1 fight, then he’s done. He just wants the two division champ moniker that Conor glorified and GSP and Cormier have.
He’s already the goat, but his LHW run is tainted by the drug scandal. If he gets a clean title win at Hw, it’s going to diminish a lot of doubt regarding his legacy.

That said if I were Jones, and if Nags loses to Lewis I would take the fight at discount and get that title in his easiest possible fight

Yea Jones beats Lewis with ease and IMO he beats Stipe as well.

Font whooped on Cody. Wonder how much COVID had to to with it and how much it is jut Font is a monster. I think its more Font because I was sleeping on him over and over again during the lockdown. He just kept on winning.

Yeah, Font just gave Garbrandt a good old fashioned ass whooping tonight. Cody’s lost 4/5 fights with only one win since that 2016 fight against Cruz. Not saying he’s done or anything — he’s still only 29 — but he’s looking like a top 10-15 fighter as opposed to a legit contender.

I think Cody’s biggest skill (his special reaction speed and counter punching) has been eroded by back to back to back bad knockouts. He honestly just doesn’t have that advantage he’s so used to fighting with, at least not to the extent that he did before. Like, this dude was so fast that he was dancing in front of Dominick Cruz and then just Ali dodging everything thrown at him.

I’m not a doctor, i just don’t think he fires off as fast neurogically as he once did.

I don't think Jones is the GOAT at all. Look at what happened to Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire, Marion Jones, Ben Johnson and many other elite athletes who took PED's. PED's should eliminate fighters from any kind of GOAT talk because of the significant impact it can make on a fighter's performance.

If Jones/Ngannou doesn't happen it'd be a travesty.

Dana white loves killing super fights. Probably less likely to happen than happen.

he done

he is a boxer who got absolutely tooled up boxing, has lost 4 of 5, and has continual health and injury problems. how could he ever resurge? not to mention the neuro damage, which includes less night. I mean, last night might have been more devestating than either two of the TJ KOs. that was something like 150 head shots over a 29 minute period. that aint' good for your brain.

It makes sense for Shields to fight someone who sucks or is inexperienced.
