Top 3 post-USADA physiques: Moraes, Barbosa, and Yoel. It's nuts that Moraes is that ripped, has that much speed & power.

In all honesty, if Cowboy wins this - and even if he were to go out and get stomped by Khabib later - he's in the talk for top 5 fighters all-time (drug cheats excluded). Even if he never won a title, the breadth of wins, finishes by both sub and TKO, quick turnarounds, and fights when injured...he's got to be up there tier 2 behind only, say, DC, Mighty Mouse, and GSP.

He's his own standard of achievement. Title runs and piecing together unbeaten streaks don't mean everything. GSP fought twice every 18 months; he may have won almost all of his fights but there is something to be said for a guy like Cerrone who, in contrast, fought 35 times in 10 years and beat the hell out of the vast majority of his opponents. And Cerrone has somehow only gotten better and more deadly. Of his last 9 wins, 8 are finishes and the only non-finish was that relentless beatdown of Al (if anything has been an honorary finish...)

This is a great card, really excited for it, glad everyone made weight. Top to bottom you have something to be invested in. You have a lot of title eliminator fights... Aljo/Pedro and Yan/Jimmie does a lot for the BW division, JoJo is in a number one contender fight, Suarez/Nina, and of course the people’s co-main with Tony and Cerrone.

I know Valentina is usually a boring decision-made fighter, but I’m curious to see how Eye does, or if Valentina is just going to push for a finish for once...

He also wore a cape and kings crown and gold medallion. He looked ridiculous. It was a Michael Scott level of cringe and embarrassment.


It was a Mouse, a Snake and then the Rabbit for DJ, TJ and Magic Marlon.

If he went by Cringe God he would be my favourite fighter ever. I already like him more just calling him that

Costa's only passed three USADA tests he's still in TBD territory.

Feel like Tony takes out Cowboy in the early 2nd, Valentina will violently finish Jessica in the first, and Moraes separates Cringe God from consciousnesses.

Wow Tony looked very very impressive there. So fast and accurate. So many techniques. I have zero issue with him vs Khabib. I think he'd maul Dustin though.

Yeah it sucks, but it happens. Cowboy is so classy, and I think Tony was extremely remorseful. I would never count out Cowboy, but it was trending into a dangerous direction.

Agree. Dustin has been so impressive, but Tony and Khabib put this pace on you that no one else in the division can match IMO.
