I wonder what Pulev said to AJ at the end, Joshua looked livid at him.

Was really dirty fighting at times from Pulev so I'm glad he lost. Hopefully Hearn can help deliver the fight everyone wants to see now.

Who do people reckon would come out on top? Gotta have Fury the favourite I reckon. His last Wilder fight was as good a heavyweight performance as I've ever seen live.

Fury will have Josh for breakfast. I like Josh, but out of the pair of them Fury seems to be the better fighter.

UFC 256 last night.

Charles Olivera absolutely dominated Tony Ferguson, I didn't expect anything like such a 1 sided fight. strawberry floating insane arm bar too. :dread: He more then deserves to be first in line to fight for the Lightweight Belt.

Holy gooseberry fool, by far the fight of the weekend was the Moreno bout in the UFC last night. What a strawberry floating fight. Absolute warriors.

Ferguson is done unfortunately. He can be proud of what he's accomplished and I hope he retires at this point.

DAT Holloway performance. :datass:

In BT Sports being scumbags non shocker, UFC 257 with Mcgregor vs Porier next Saturday is behind a PPV despite being on at 5am.

I know he's lost twice to Volkonovski but no one in the Featherweight Division is on his level other than the current Champion. The trilogy fight is necessary. :datass:

Caught up with the full fight now, what a strawberry floating performance. That was another level from Holloway. Beautiful to watch. (Though I do think Kattar's corner could've pulled him out in the 4th).

Big one this coming weekend, who we got?

McGregor looks like he was juicing in some of his time off. I suspect CM round 2 KO with his added power. I think if it goes beyond the third, McGregor's going to be in trouble.

Holloway's fight definitely should have been stopped. That kind of repeated punishment is probably more damaging than being knocked out early in the 1st round. Reminded me of Tony Ferguson's fight against Justin Gaethje for the length of 1 sided beating.

Yeah was thinking Conor was looking like a juicy mofo too. He's significantly more muscular whilst looking leaner than his last fight against Cowboy. I suspect USADA weren't exactly travelling the globe frequently since March to see if fighter's are pissing hot.

I'd favour Mcgregor too, he previously has beat Poirier and he's used his off time to better fit the weight class, he hardly had to cut weight previously to meet 155lbs so was an undersized 155lb fighter. His style is obviously taxing on the cardio and with his bigger frame that's likely to be a bigger factor but in most of his fights, he tends to win them before getting gassed out.

Rest of the card isn't too impressive but I like Dan Hooker's previous fights so that should be good.

Saw that on his Instagram page. It's ridiculous looking! Definitely a money can't buy taste situation.

I think TF v JG is a good comparison and we're never getting old Tony back unfortunately. I'll probably put a few quid on McGregor getting it early so hopefully he manages.

Plus for all the stupid circus gooseberry fool, he's a very entertaining fighter to watch.

Been awake over an hour now for the Mcgregor fight. Hope it lasts more than 40 seconds. :slol:

Didn't watch it, but McGregor's a bellend so the fact he got a pasting is most amusing.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I don't think he'll fight in the UFC again. He'll talk it up but we're at the point where he's getting on a bit, is insanely rich and is 3-3 in his last 6.

His checking of the leg kicks was non-existent. Looks too in that boxing mind-state, as though he's lost the fluidity between kicks and punches.
