First fight was short but fun. Cyborg's win was easily foreseen. Woodley vs Maia was long and boring AF. Felt bad for DC, really wanted him to knock Jones clean out and he won the first 2 rounds too. Think that fight went on for a few too many punches at the end, DC looked badly hurt afterwards. Probably shouldn't have been interviewed afterwards, reminded me of Overeem's post fight interview. Also this GIF:
Matter of time before another freakshow comes along and Jones loses. Probably won't be for another few years. In the meantime, I'd love to see Brock Lesnar vs Jon Jones.
Stayed up last night to watch this, DC was doing really well Imo he was constantly pushing forwards and really kept Jones at bay, the finish was special and the aftermath was quite heartwarming as well seeing Jones evolve as a person rather than rub salt in the wounds.
But what the strawberry float Rogan?! DC was clearly out of it and he decides to try and interview him, I also had the feeling with three of them on the commentary team they are prepping for Rogan to go

In hindsight this was a step up from what we got. Apparently the match set a record for the fewest punches thrown in a five round title fight by quite some margin. It's also led to GSP being matched against Bisping instead of him facing Woodley (a reversal by Dana).
Anderson Silva was told off for not finishing Demian Maia in the past too.
Yeah Jesus Christ that was a bad fight. Maia's takedowns were terrible. Telegraphed a mile away. And Woodley just circling around him for 5 rounds. Like if Woodley actually tried and Juliet his hands go, he would have easily finished Wonderboy and Maia. But he's just such a boring banana split he'd rather jab and run.
Good fights overall (co main aside). Fairly predictable results tho. God damn it hurt watching DC after he got KOed. Like watching your dad get beat up.
Ugh, I hate Jones. DC was looking really good as well, right up until the headkick. The confidence and demeanour was a lot different to their first fight and I was hoping it would go the distance as I reckon DC would've won the decision.
I skipped through Woodley-Maia, so dull. Dana shitting on Woodley after the fight as well, and confirming GSP-Bisping instead of GSP-Woodley.
Lawler-Cerrone was great fun. Not sure Lawler won it as convincingly as the judges made out, but it could've gone either way for me.
Lesnar vs Jones was being hyped a lot before the fight, so wasn't too surprised when Jones called him out. Would love to see Lesnar snap those chicken legs.
Also, who was that on commentary with Anik and Rogan? Cruz? Sounded so whiny and annoying. The 3-way commentary is so gooseberry fool.
Jesus Christ Jones Like when he won the title back, and did it without being a banana split, he was respectful to DC, said all the right things post fight, put on an amazing performance, I was like "okay, maybe now I can finally get behind Jones". What a strawberry floating waster
