If any of you are interested in the history of MMA/UFC, Big John McCarthy just did an amazing podcast with Rogan

Just seen that Ariel Helwani is leaving MMA Fighting and moving to ESPN. That's MMA Fighting pretty much dead then.
I used to watch The MMA Beat every week at one point, and The MMA Hour occasionally as well. I'm sure some of those will continue in pretty much the same format, but still - end of a good series of shows. I notice he's going to be co-hosting something with Chael Sonnen at ESPN. :dread:

Till vs Wonderboy was such a dull fight. Two strikers barely throwing punches.

Just as dull as Woodley vs Wonderboy.

The walkout to Sweet Caroline had me more hyped than the fight itself.

Wonderboy managing to take him down suggests Usman/Woodley or any serious wrestler will cause him issues.

CM Punk got dismantled last night against Mike Jackson. By the looks of it the only positive is that it didn’t end in round 1.

Delighted to see him get clowned again. Sounds like Dana White has basically told him that's it for him in the UFC.

I have no love for CM as i dont watch WWE and never saw him rassle. But honestly i was kinda hoping he would get a win just to shut up all the people who gooseberry fool on him. I think just as someone who started BJJ late in life i just felt a bit of a kinship with Phil Punk cause i have a slight idea of what its like to try and take this gooseberry fool up at an advanced age :lol: You can make fun of him all you like, but the dude has heart for days to not only step into the cage at almost 40, but to come back after being humiliated by Mickey Gall and give it another try. Like really its the UFC people should be pissed at, cause they're the ones who hired him when realistically he should have just had a couple of Amateur fights to start.

Pretty good card this weekend tho, Romero v Whittaker was strawberry floating insane

I see Romero has now missed weight for two fights in a row. :fp: I think that's a first. Sort yourself out FFS, can't even make weight for a title fight.

Can't say I'm keeping interest in MMA...last fight I watched was Mir vs Fedor, next one'll be Miocic vs Cormier. I just check the results on wikipedia now. Most of the interesting fighters/characters have gone for me and just another sport I glance down the results of, rather than actively following and taking an interest.

Thats a pity. Aside from the stupid amount of interim belts and the knock on effect of the Mcgregor era, MMA has really been great lately. If you have time hunt down last nights Whittaker v Romero 2. It was a strawberry floating amazing fight. Round 3 was legitimately all time classic status.

The main thing that made me laugh about CM Punk was when he was in the WWE and moaning at people like the Rock, Batista and Lesnar not working full time and just coming back and being the main attractions. Then he joins the UFC and basically get the same treatment they did. I saw someone describe him as basically looking like an adult Make-a-Wish winner :lol:

The takeover, the Reebok deal, the McGregor pandering and the new drug testing have all contributed to my loss of interest.

Spot on.

I have much respect for Punk, it's UFC who've messed up, he shouldn't be on the main card! Really didn't like that guy who he fought, Jackson was it? Utter bellend.

The Whittaker v Romero fight was incredible.

Do you often contemplate the complexity of life?

Yeah Dana strawberry floating shredded Jackson in the post fight press conf. He literally called him a strawberry floating idiot for not trying to finish th fight, said he was sorry he ever booked it, and Jackson will probably never fight in the UFC again.

Also Holm gave Anderson a masterclass, just shows the step up from lower MMA companies to the UFC top fighters

I really don't understand the UFC sometimes. They took Anderson and fed her to the wolves, instead of giving her some warm up fights to build up her brand a bit. Anderson could potentially be a star, she has that whole Amazonian warriror look going on, her ass is incredible, she wrecked everyone in invicta, so the UFC fed her to Holly Holm for a mauling. I guess the division only has like 2 people in it tho so shes probably still like the #2 contender :lol:

Overeem and Rashad Evans need to hang in the towel. They are too old and have been knocked out too much. CTE probably awaits them.

CM Punk getting wrecked was expected. "There are levels to this gooseberry fool". Jackson made it look so easy but Rogan commentary about Jackson betting on himself to win via majority decision wouldn't surprise me.

Covington vs Woodley hopefully won't be a snooze fest like Woodley vs Thompson.

Romero vs Whitaker was a strawberry floating war! So many times I thought Romero was one punch away from the knock out. Whitaker's chin is ridiculous. Still think Romero must be on gear. How can he be that strawberry floating good at 41 and look like that? Rematch seems inevitable due to failing to meet weight but I feel like Whitaker deserves a fight against anyone else before tackling Romero.
