Isn’t the dude South African? I thought it was some apartheid shit coming. But yeah, I can see Izzy being pissed. But, he seems like he gets angry pretty easily. And now big man is in his head.
Yeah, that video is much tamer than what I was imagining.

Regardless, I stand by my statement that Izzy is a tool sometimes.

Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t saying Izzy isn’t a tool sometimes. I was just saying Izzy didn’t run up there and say that out of nowhere. That was the background of “my African brother”

Looked like Pantoja’s round until that last minute. Damn. Last rounds gonna be insane.

This Pantoja has it all. Slick, some pop, elite grappling. Moreno is in better shape and faster (but not as slick).

Great fight

@luckiestman - when a dudes on your back, can’t you just flip back and crush them.
Probably won’t even work on the street, but definitely not on mats. I’m not suggesting you choke high like that on a hard surface, but most likely you can take the impact and when you do the jumper has probably exposed their neck on the landing. Remember though, if you are behind someone in a fight you can elbow the shit out of them in a way that is illegal in the UFC.

Is there a bigger delta between how a dude looks and how bad he’d kick your ass than Stipe? Feel like more than one dude has not recognized him and ended up in a bad way.

I see what you’re saying but he is a big dude. Fun game though. What about Cormier. Not that tall, chubby, and one of the twitchiest freak athletes in the game.

Criteria has to be not just good but I think the winner has to have KO or slam the shit out of you power.

Charles Oliveira carries a surprising amount of power.

So far Stipe, Cormier, Oliveira.

Guess Silverchair cost too much to license.

Sergei Kovalev is another dude you might talk back to at a bar who’d smash you.

Like you might think Tommy Hearns looks like a scrappy guy but you don’t expect him to knock the shit out of people like THAT.

Yes; but the game isn’t who has a shocking ton of power, but who looks kinda dweebish but would fuck your world up.

well, there are two ends to get the Delta. Tommy is on the extreme end of would fuck you up and he doesnt look like much. Oliveira looks dweebier but wouldn’t hit you the same way.

Cormier looks like he could be doing IT support and will ko you and pick you up and throw you out if the cage Iike it’s a joke so he is still my pick.

That Tyson combo - hook to the body, uppercut, so perfect and then the slam. Beautiful.

Apparently Moreno broke his right hand in the first round. Hell of an effort from both guys. I'm sure we'll see them fight again, though I'm sure the recovery for Moreno will take longer. Would prefer to see Pantoja defend against someone else first.

That fight and card was so good that I was worn out by the main event. Volk was amazing and I was kind of too worn out to give it the full attention it deserved.

I don't think we see a 4th time after Pantoja winning all three fights fairly convincingly....despite the one embarassing 49-46 card in favor of Moreno. The only way I felt we'd see a 4th is if Moreno won on Sat.

Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler are the coaches for this season of The Ultimate Fighter. I haven't been watching but Conor's team is currently 0-7 with I think one fight remaining. That's embarrassing. Practically impossible, probability wise.

They're also slated to fight December 16th in Vegas at T-Mobile Arena at UFC 296, but Conor hasn't entered the USADA testing pool and is well beyond the 6-month window of testing needed to fight on that date (hint: he's juiced to the gills and probably can't get his in-house tests to come up clean). Everyone is speculating that Dana will twist USADA's arm for an exception because Conor sells PPVs.
