You mis-scored the first few rounds. Dustin clearly won rounds 1 and 2, with 1 a 10-8.


I saw no 10-8.

Don't think it was that close. Thought Dustin took it pretty easily.

You also didn't even see Dustin winning 1 of those 2 rounds, so either you're drunk, or being a fan of Holloway is skewing your perspective.

No reason for that after such a close fight.

Damage vs output.

Poirier has always had athletic talent and skill, but in refining it he's shown among the most consistent improvement over the course of a career we've seen.

Congrats to Theo Von on his Louisiana boy the Bayou Brawler prevailing. He had that thousand hitter and still no quitter, boy. Called it. Brennan Scab should stick to fighting.

That is the one thing Dominic Cruz doesn't have as an announcer. He has 0 chemistry with the other 2 guys he's calling the fight with. Say what you want about Joe, but the 3 of these guys together have tremendous timing and chemistry with eachother.

Max was always going to eat the wrong punches at some point. Makes sense for it to happen as soon as he moved up to 155. I thought he might bring it back anyway for a minute there, but he was too banged up and Poirier stayed composed. Props to Dustin.

That's uncalled for. Let the dude enjoy his victory for a minute before you map on the subsequent fighters you speculate he'll lose to.

If Whitaker can ever get healthy, I think he can handle Israel pretty easily. When healthy Whitaker is super quick, can get in and out very well and the dude is just so very well rounded. If Kelvin gave Israel this much of a fight, I think Robert can finish him.

I don't think they have nearly the same chemistry as this trio. Cruz even with DC has the tendency to step on feet when announcing. The dude is super smart when it comes to the sport, just feel like his ego can get the best of him when calling fights. If Joe or even DC says something Cruz doesn't agree with, you can just feel the awkward tension.

Rogan is amazing at calling these fights, but can't be on every card. Cruz a little nasally but I learn more from him than any other announcer, and he and DC go deep on that stuff.
