  1. Karyn always mentioning that Woodley almost choked out WB. Which is right. But forgot to mention that WB surpass that & ended up on top of Woodley banging his head. And don't forget on the 5th round it seems that WB gets his groove back as if he can still fight 3 more rounds & tyrun gassing out. Allan is right. WB didn't do what he does best so that means tyrun doesn't gain much on that fight. I like the way Allan speaks. Talking about fairness. As far as Karyn she's friends with tyrun but u should know how to separate it when doing your job & be fair. That's why tyrun is not too excited with the rematch he knows how much of a beast WB is. He's a Champ what can u expect. Woodley is a champ currently that's right but he's not yet done defending his belt against the #1 contender in WB. Tyrun also hates WB why? Coz he's jealous of WB coz the guy is handsome, smart, a potential face of MMA. AND a people's champ. Almost everybody is rooting for WB when he is the champ. Well that's called charisma & good aura. Which tyrun doesn't have. All I can see is a WHINING CHAMP! Man up tyrun

  3. If I was Ronda's team, I would have her come back to fight Misha Tate. i think Tate would come out of retirement for that. I would have her do a "burry the hatchet" press tour with her so she can win all the fans back. That way if she wins she can then fight a ranked opponent or even retire on a positive note. I dont know if Ronda's ego would allow that though. It s also funny to me how Ronda not talking to the press has the press talk even more about her. Its a good marketing plan. At the end of the day I dont how her talking would change things a lot.

  4. I really dont get why people think meryl streep was insulting MMA. she said its not one of "THE ARTS". She isnt saying its not an art, shes saying its not one of the classical performance arts. like jesus christ people have we really not heard of The Arts??

    • Is THAT what the "controversy" was? I didn't hear/read what she said, but it was as if she insulted EVERYONE since so many people from different quarters were "offended".
      MMA isn't one of the classical performance arts, where's the controversy? MMA is MARTIAL arts, that's totally different.
      I think people just want to automatically go against her because she's a "lefty, liberal, hollywood elite" blah blah blah.

  5. for me woodley vs thompson 2 is the right thing to do because its not settle yet. its a tie. in the first fight wonderboy looked too carefull and hesitant especialy after that takedown in the 1st round.if he let go of his kicks and movement more i think he'll get that belt.
