    In a world full of stupid people, it's really saying something that Garbrandt stands out.

    The December 19 card is shaping up to be the best non PPV in a long time.

    Edwards vs. Chiamev (Main)
    Wonderboy vs Neal (co-main)
    Tybura vs. Hardy
    Moraes vs. Font
    Aldo vs. Vera

    Think that's better than a couple recent ppvs.

    I watched 5 minutes of her interview yesterday and there is very little going on in her head. She nice looking though.

    I don't think anyone was excited for Blaydes to lay n pray on Lewis for 5 rounds.

    Would be fine with Dana cutting every fighter who goes into the ring with a secret injury that makes them ineffective.

    Has Clark never been in a triangle before? That was textbook how not to defend

    I'll take it.

    Parisian cost me a perfect DK card.

    What are Dana White's contenders records in their debuts? Maybe 20% winrate?

    Saw on Reddit where Jake Paul knocked out former NBA PG Nate Robinson and then called out Conor.

    Fuck it, let's do it.

    Edwards didn't want to fight him either lol but no one wants to see Edwards fight to begin with and you can tell Dana about tired of his shit.

    He got Covid, right? Holding that against him is really dumb.

    Yea, this time. I'm not really holding it against him. He wants a title shot and has turned down every other fight they've offered him, including this one the first time iirc.

    Not really. "He didn't want to fight him! Dana is tired of his shit!!!" bc he tested positive for Covid is a weird take.
     
  33. Jake Scott

    Jake Scott Well-Known Member

    Correct. He turned the fight down initially.

    They've gone back and forth at each other for awhile now.

    But dude, you can't honestly believe I would blame someone for not being able to fight because of COVID or hold it against them. That's the dumbest shit ever and you know that's not what was happening. So I was right this was a dbl'ing trap. Good work.

    He turned down the fight because he wanted a top fight and not against a guy out of the rankings. Makes sense but I’m sure they gave him a take this fight and win and you are next in line assurances.

    You may not have meant it that way, but "I expected it. He didn't want to fight him and Dana is tired of his bullshit" was a weird angle.

    And I agree with that. I wouldn't have taken the fight either. I didn't blame it on COVID though.

    Well that's why he's out and you seem upset that he's out and you expected it so yea.

    Was eyeing OSP as the classic veteran underdog vs inexperienced hyped up fighter but this is disconcerting.

    Also before doing much research I like Collier as a dog vs Villante because Villante sucks and likely wouldn't have a career if he wasn't buds with Dana.

    Wouldn't coming in early and missing mean he said fuck it and didn't try the cut?

    Pretty much. OSP has been all over the board throughout his career. Looks beastly sometimes and other times looks like he didn’t prepare. This kind of makes me think he doesn’t care. Who knows.

    I'm no expert.. But the dog or pass guys say avoiding the cut all together isn't necessarily a bad thing. Certainly preferable to a bad cut that fucks a guy up.

    Hopefully he becomes more valuable... and hopefully he prepared for his opponent.
