Bit strange. Usually there’s a couple of fights or at least fighters that pull you in.

I mean we may still get some good fights, but on paper. Like you said. Doesn’t do anything for me.

Masterpiece by Strickland, always keeping his stance compact and jabbing to set heavier shots and make Adesanya ineffective.

Kape/Dos Santos was a gem, there were also a lot of good stoppages.

I just downloaded the telecast from last night to watch the Kape and Adesanya fights. Always brightens my day when Adesanya loses. :OhYes:

One particularly retarded bettor bet $220,000 on Adesanya to win $32,592.59. :doh: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Enjoyed Adesanya getting outmanned by Strickland. What a poor poor performance, his boxing is absolutely woeful. The knockdown in round 1 was like a carbon copy of Froch knocking out Groves, throws a desperate shot to get his back off from the fence and was wide open.

After he got hurt in r1 he just got on his bike, what a truly pitiful effort from a champion. It's not the first time I've seen him look like trash, it wasn't too disimilar to his fight vs Romero, where he did the square root of zero.

The guys a one-trick pony that's dined out on some kick-boxing counter shots, and an obnoxious racist pig to boot. Hopefully we see him get chinned a few more times before he gives it up completely.

Strickland has said racist, homophobic and misognyist things in the past. Neither guy is very likable.

$100? I get upset losing $10 nevermind $100. I just think of all the coffees I could have bought with it.

Della Maddalena and Shevchenko got the bad end of two debatable albeit not damaging decisions.

Ray Rosas going for the win like he wanted to steal something, nice confidence booster for the rookie

Bryan Battle looking like a burned-out Pete Davidson with his new look, but he looks lively in the cage and more mature with his reach control and ground game.

Fast card with good stoppages so far.
