    Well she has lost 2 of her last 3 at Bantamweight as well. Her only win being a really average Bethe. Maybe people just need to accept she was a one hit wonder and isn't that good?

    Who was her 2nd best win against? Beating Pennington in a split decision?

    She owns a victory in the most talked about result in UFC history. It's not a surprise she still has lots of fans.

    She just doesn't seem to have weight behind her punches. It's kind of weird. I don't know if it's by design to save cardio or she's naturally a light puncher. Cyborg was more technical than her also.

    I gotta give Holly credit. She got rocked multiple times and stuck it out. Would've been a different fight if she actually came forward like she did the back half of the 5th round.

    My wife just asked me if I stayed up to watch Holm v Cyborg fight. I said yes, she then asked "was it really as close as people on Twitter are saying?". I can't believe people are saying this was a close fight.

    Holly didn't get steamrolled out there, she looked competent just overmatched.

    True, but I don't think result was ever really in doubt

    Hopefully they don't push her too quickly. Let her gradually work her way up.

    Good hire. Probably is Rogan's eventual replacement.

    I enjoyed him on Rogan too.

    I love Rogan calling the fights. I hope Comier does it full time when he's done fighting.

    Cruz just tends to ramble too much and makes it awkward.

    the last ppv was unbearable

    Sounds like this is the last year he will be fighting. He has said he's preparing to walk away after 2018.

    Hall/Belfort is off the card due to a bad weight cut for Hall.

    Said this after PVZ fought Rose, but Paige isn't the most skilled female fighter, or even close -- but she has to be among the toughest.

    Agreed! But in another way it looks great. He got hit by a fucking train, and is walking around and appears to be making progress.
