    Every fighter in the sport will be trying to sign up with Wittman.

    Whatever Trevor Wittman gets paid, they need to triple it. Then double it.

    I love it when dudes act so hard when they get tagged, then get their ass knocked out.

    you know those earlier punches hurt, yet Jorge tried to act like they were nothing.

    Props to Usman. He stood with him and slept him. Mad at myself for not going now. Totally expected that to go differently. Same winner, just different fight.

    I really hope that Usman gets his hands on that BMF belt. I'd have ran out and taken it from the guy that followed Masvidal with it

    significant leg strikes
    hard elbows off the back
    did more off his back than usman did with position

    it’s not out of the question to say he did

    To each his own, but I don't think someone who gets taken down and doesn't have control for a quarter(?) of the round has a fair argument at winning that round.

    besides taking him down, what did usman do with position

    you’re saying that nothing masvidal did between being taken down and getting back up matters

    Maybe monitoring who is the best at cutting weight could be a good betting strategy

    Usman looked 20lbs bigger than Masvidal

    I'm saying that while Masvidal got shots in, I think that Usman controlled the round and had plenty of shots along the way.

    Colby is so bad at trash talking. He struggles to find the words to say.

    He weighed in a half pound lighter.

    Not sure if you are serious but there is a horde of people who j off to the weigh ins. A lot of the mma sites report on them and over blow them. Long story short is most of the time the weigh in is a place where it’s easy to draw too many conclusions.

    It’s a terrible Chael imitation, but with Chael it was natural and he had quick wit. Colby rehearses his shit.

    And I was predicting at least 2 of the title fights to go into the championship rounds or all 5. Obviously 2 freakish finishes but still a card UFC dreams of every fight night.

    fwiw i am curious about the weigh-in stuff. obviously these guys cut weight, but usman looked like a weight class above and masvidal had that starved fighter body :idk:

    Usman generally walks around at about 185-190 lbs during camp, but after rehydrating after weigh-ins, fighters generally never get up to their normal walk around weight. That’s really not a big cut.

    Judging by weight cuts is one of the most inexact parts of the sport. Some dudes struggle, but somehow Daniel Cormier could make 205 comfortably.

    But the main thing is dudes who have been wrestling their whole life like Usman, Cormier, etc. They’ve been cutting weight since before fighting MMA.

    To be fair DC could probably have made 185 if he really wanted to. He wrestled in college at 184.
