  1. It would be terrible if Khabib goes the way of what could of been. Fighters, now more than ever should be living all year round with a nutritionist if they want to fight three weight divisions below their walk around weight. Think about it Hendricks walks around about 210lbs. and tortured himself to make weight until he had to be hospitalized for missing weight several times in a row. Other notables Anthony Johnson, and I am sure we can come up with more top of the food chain talent. smh

  2. Khabib's dad apparently told a different story. He said Khabib was overweight coming into fight week. He also said Khabib and his team lied to him about Khabib's weight. He said that it could be down to "arrogance" and/or "carelesness" (translator's words not mine)

  3. Awesome podcast as always. My first thought was LOL! SOB! I cant believe Khabib and Tony didnt fight. We all knew it was the main event. My real first thought was wow! Karyn, Kenny, Brian, and Megan are going to have a fun time explaining this one. I had to look up what Khabib weighed for UFC 205 vs Micheal Johnson. He was 156 lbs. Does that mean he was 150 lbs? I had to rewind it twice just to make sure I understood what Megan was saying. it was drama watching the offical weigh in on's facebook page. The press was trying to fight out which fight was getting promoted. Karyn instgramming her line up sheet that had all the fights was the first time most of us knew Amanda Cooper vs Cynthia Calivillo was getting promoted from curtain jerker to PPV. Dana and the UFC felt like they needed Khabib to fight Tony even if he was on his death bed. Why would they put Tyron vs Stephen as the main event if most of us felt like Khabib and Tony was main event. It was given 5 rounds to get more sales out of the pay per view and because of the games Conor is playing. Who knows if or when he will defend the Lightweight Strap. We need 1 more fight for UFC 210 pay per view main card. Only 4 fights are confirmed as it was shown during the post show. After Alan fights, the UFC is on a 2 week break until UFC 210- DC vs Rumble II. Felt like Tyron was scared of Stephen. He pretty much is admitting he needed the judges. He wants to be the best welterweight champion in history. Not with this performance. Hope Alan can crack the top 15 when he beats Gunnar Nelson who is #9.

  4. I truly don't understand why everyone wants to blame the boring fight all on Tyron. He was in the ring with another opponent who was boring as heck as well. Steven didn't do anything spectacular either.

  5. Man woodley could have finished wonderboy but he just doesn't pull the trigger. I don't know why he was so afraid of wonderboys striking. Its good but tbh robbie lawler was more dangerous. Wonder boy never presses the action like Rory MacDonald does so he never was really going to touch woodley.
