  1. Francis showed that maybe he was nervous when he fought Stipe. I think nervous were there. He owned Junior Dos Santos. It was crazy to see Kamaru wear 2 hats. He worked as a panel with Rashad and Karyn and cornering Francis. That was both interesting and had to be hard for Kamaru. Glad Francis only needed 61 seconds for Kamarus sake. lol. Joseph Benavidez u could argue should be 16-2 in the UFC. He won that fight over Sergio Pettis. To having Demetrious Johnson be the only man to beat him is nuts. Funkmaster dont mind waiting for a title shot and I think that is the seniments of us fans. There were so many finishes that I bet Dana loved this night. He loves it when refs have fingers up their butts for 6 hours.

  3. Damn I am so confused, when you were talking about "ya boi", how in the world do you forget he had or for sure forgot to mention, his last ASS WHOOPING received by Roundtree?? Might be the most lopsided fight this year

  4. I hope Joey 2 Times get a title shot at Henry for the 125 lb belt when he gets back. Besides DJ Joe B was a favorite of mine in the Men's Flyweight division. For me I'm a little tired of Triple C. To me it means Corny, Cringy, and Cash strapped. One of Henry's talking points whenever he gets a mic is money. Sick of hearing it. If Henry is not getting the paper he feels he deserves then maybe he should be talking to Ali or getting with an agent that can get Henry his $.

    • Took the words out of my mouth. Ali has a reputation for making the fighters he represented CHICKEN SHIT!. I wonder if Henry really needed the surgery or if Ali knows Henry cant beat Joey 2 belts. Joey is 15-3 in the UFC should be 16-2.

  5. Why do you guys still doubt DC? If he was the one who had Ngannou down like Stipe, he’d finish him… DC is a tough fight for anyone not name Jon Jones. He’s a big boy and can handle power punchers very well!
