    Just saw that the last fight of Bisping was about a year ago, thought it was more like 2 years ago. So yeah, he's still an active fighter

    Garbrandt-Dillashaw is the TRUE Main Event of this Card...Bisping-GSP is More of a CURIOSITY...

    I've always had a soft spot for Joosp. Not the most exciting fighter, but a great mix of skill, technique, and athleticism. At his peak, probably the best MMA fighter ever imo.

    But now? I think this is a terrible comeback fight. He seemed to have lost a step already before retiring, despite being relatively young.

    And now he's coming back after 4 years against a guy a full weight class above, with good kickboxing, good TDD, and good stamina? It's a fucking tough ask. I think a Woodley or PillowFists McGregory fight would have made far more sense.

    I wouldn't be shocked if he won, but Ping should be the favourite.

    And Cody is going to give TJ a beating.

    Sorry to hear that Gatti. TJ is really good, his win over Barao was superb, and he looked good against Lineker too.

    But they are both scrubs compared to Cody, especially little 5'2 Lineker who just plods forwards throwing bombs. Cody's boxing and wrestling are on a completely different level to those two.

    His boxing is the best in the UFC, and he has enough of a wrestling base to use it. TJ's flashiness and randomness won't work on Cody, everytime he lunges in he'll get countered hard. Cody by TKO.

    Gsp was responsible for turning me and a lot of my friends off the sport. Absolutely disgusting style, boring as fuck. Moving around on the ground for 5 rounds of bullshit decisions. Horrific to watch. He caused immense harm to the sport. I hope he gets planted to the canvas

    technical submission, embarrassing performance by Bisping.

    TJ-Garbrandt was a sick fight, happy my boy Dillashaw put him and that crowd in their place.

    Wow. That ended up being a great, memorable event. I liked it on paper, but thought the three main event losers would win.

    JJ going down like that was probably the biggest surprise. Rose seems better than her 7-3 record, but she still had the 7-3 record against someone who has beaten seemingly better fighters the last few years, more or less easily.

    I really like Cody as a fighter and not such a big fan of Dillashaw, but the TUF show made me like Dillashaw a lot more and Cody a lot less. TJ was a chill, cool, (still cocky) motherfucker. Cody seemed like a punk and not so smart dick. So, while I'm glad of the outcome, I thought it would go the other way. Didn't blame TJ for yelling in Cody's face after and was very surprised that Cody did his best at being a good loser.

    Bisping seemed like a vulnerable champ, but it was hard to imagine GSP being able to overcome all of the hurdles mentioned above. Then he comes in looking like a giant version of himself, Bisping seemed like a miniature version of himself, and GSP looking as sharp as ever. Then GSP starts getting tired and Bisping is winning off of the bottom and it looks like his stamina is going to have the GSP hulk fading and going down like most expected. Then not.

    Phenomenal Card...

    GSP Dominated Bisping, Despite Being BADLY Cut From Top Position...GSP's Hands NEVER Looked Better; Credit to Freddie Roach...He Actually BROUGHT the Fight to Bisping...He was LESS Explosive, Understandably So, and it Didn't Even Matter...Call REED Crazy, but he Thinks this was the BEST Win of GSP's Career, All Things Considered...

    That Being Said, REED Can't See GSP Beating Whittaker or Romero or Rockhold...Probably Not Even Weidman...If He Can Manage the Weight Cut, REED Thinks he Should Drop Back Down to Welter...

    agREED w/mikE on Cody Garbrandt Being a TURNOFF on the Season of TUF he Shared w/TJ...Sure, TJ's an Arrogant Prick and REED Has No Doubt TJ Did EVERYTHING Team Alpha Male Accuses Him Of...But @ SOME Point, MOVEthefuckON, Bruh...He Did It, He's GONE, Now Carry On w/Your Life...

    Cody's Preoccupation w/TJ Bordered on OBSESSION and REED Can't Say he was Disappointed TJ KO'ed Him....REED LIKES Cody's Style of Fighting and his Swag and Hopefully This was a LEARNING Experience for Him...Obviously he Can BEAT TJ and Probably Would've Gotten a 1st Round KO if He Had 20-30 More Seconds Remaining...Grow Up a Bit MENTALLY, Go Back to the Drawing Board and Come Back...

    REED Thinks Moving DOWN to Face Mighty Mouse is a Mistake on TJ's Part...You Make the Smaller Man Move UP to Your World, You Don't Move DOWN to His World...

    Namajunas' KO of Joanna Was BRUTAL...Soooooo Much So, REED Doesn't Know What Joanna Could Do DIFFERENTLY in a RE...Everytime Rose Hit Joanna, She HURT Joanna...Joanna Could Stick and Move Her Way Thru a Round or 2, but She'd Get Clipped EVENTUALLY...

    Again, Phenomenal Card!....

    Gotta love the part where Joe Rogan just finished saying “Joanna has the best jab in MMA. Man or woman..”

    Then. “Bam!!!”

    Kiss of death
