    Robbie couldn't have handled this any better. His conference after the fight was great.

    Some drunk dude is explaining the rules after the fight and is just making it more complicated.

    Looks like McGregor finally won a fight.

    Masvidal crushed Till. Don’t know if anyone here watched.

    I threw the last 3 fights on. Till is so overrated.

    I won’t judge him too harshly. Masvidal is a good fighter.

    Yeah he is. I like him. I was looking earlier today, and not too surprisingly, he’s only been KO’d once earlier in his career. And only a couple of finishes. I still think Till is overrated tho.

    Fucking Leon didn’t realize Jorge is in fact about that life.

    He should have watched that video I posted.

    Seems like Till was very tentative once Masvidal hit that takedown and almost took his back. Almost like he was having trouble defending multiple threats.

    Usman v. Gamebread is 10,000 times more interesting than Usman mugging that idiot Colby Covington for five rounds. Let Askren end Covington and give us Marty v. Masvidal.

    That wiki update is awesome. And yeah, Masvidal does seem old school. Maybe like a Diaz brother, but with less artifice.

    Colby and Masvidal are pretty close. Wonder if this is going to strain their relationship

    Colby mugging Masvidal (grappling only)and talking shit

    Dillashaw just gave up his belt pending a suspension.

    Apparently he'll be out a year from his last fight with Cejudo. No word on the substance. I'm wondering if he took something to help with that horrendous weight cut.

    Cowboy is fighting Al instead of McGregor, who is now calling out Masvidal.

    I’m a bit confused at this Wonderboy Pettis fight coming up Saturday. I think this is really dangerous for Pettis.

    That Arkansas redneck Bryce Mitchell is fun to watch. I enjoyed his time on TUF. Wants Nike to make him some camo shorts. Heh. That was funny.

    Looking ahead to later in the card, I think I agree that Pettis is going to get killed by Wonderboy. Not sure what he is doing. Wonderboy can't be a big money fight for him, can it? Maybe the UFC made him an offer he couldn't refuse, but otherwise, I'd think he'd test 170 with a lesser name first.

    I think Duke Rufus feels like after seeing him with Woodley twice, he can gameplan for Wonderboy.

    Not sure if I agree with it, as their is a huge difference between what Woodley and Pettis can bring, but their camp must be feeling good.

    Pettis extremely lucky to land that shot. He earned the win. I still think this was matchmaking malpractice because he was getting tuned up coming off a fight where he took a beating.

    170 as a division is looking so bad right now.

    Loved seeing Wonderboy laughing it up and give Pettis props after he came to. True professional.

    That was awesome from Pettis. Damn, he was lucky. I like Wonderboy a little bit more too. Seems like a good guy.

    Nice to see a fight without a bunch of cheap theatrics between two professionals.

    Yeah it was starting to get ugly and there were three whole rounds left. That may be the most important punch in his career.

    I don’t follow mma closely, but what was Thompson doing with his hands at his waist? That’s crazy.

    Pettis is the Adam Dunn of MMA. There is definitely a game plan to consistently get him out that we have seen from Max, Alvarez, Tony Furgeson, RDA etc. But man, he has some epic home runs in knocking out Cowboy or Wonderboy and submitting Cowboy Olivera, Gil Melendez and Bendo. Such a great boom or bust fighter. His fights are never boring and when he wins it is always awesome.

    Honestly I just don't think he was expecting it. He doesn't remember getting hit according to his Instagram video.

    That was about as close to a Hail Mary as you'll get in MMA. Pettis was being dominated and I think Wonderboy just got over confident.

    We don't have a college wrestling thread on here, so I'll put this here. Bo Nickal challenged Ben Askren to a wrestling match. It looks like those two are going to wrestle.

    It looked like he was just resetting and dropped his arms to shake them out, rather than holding them there consistently. He was more or less out of range and Pettis jumped.

    A combination of being tired and keeping the balance with the side-kick, IMHO. When you’re not fresh, you compensate for the loss of balance with exaggerated body-lean in the opposite direction and letting your hands go out and down. That’s usually not fatal if the kick creates distance and you snap your hands back up after, but it’s definitely a vulnerable second that people try to exploit with their hands.

    Edit: Eh, just rewatched it. He was just lazy with his hands down (part of it was him disguising the lead hand by keeping it low) and got surprised that Pettis had the range.

    Properly managing range has to suck when fighting a guy like Pettis. Showtime, indeed.
