Alan ‘did I mention I am a model?’ Jouban
I still don’t understand how Aspen was the favorite over Germaine. It seemed like a horrible matchup for Ladd. She has a lot of growing to do before someone like Germaine
I think Herb Dean was triggered happy being in California. I think Andy Foster and the CSAC are based there lets be real. Also Aspen did a quick turnaround, she fought in May at UFC Fight Night 152 vs Sijara Eubanks. Won and turnaround about 6 weeks later. Amanda needs Felicia Spencer to put away Cristiane Cyborg Justino at UFC 240 otherwise she is screwed cause she has a rematch for her next title defense. The fight was right to made but I wished it was made around October-November. Urijah just took Ricky Simons ranking at #14. I think Henry is scared to defend against Joseph Benadivez no wonder he is calling out random people like Urijah.

Andre filli looks like one of the warriors or lost boys from Neverland
Dana just said he want's Cejudo to defend the 125 title against Benavidez first and after that the 135 title against someone.
Ill believe it when they put pen to paper. I know he told TMZ sports that but we'll see.
Uriah's stop age was highly controversial. And the fact that you're not mentioning that he look like he was definitely on performance-enhancing drugs is concerning. Anyway that was definitely not a performance that should have put his name in title contention but I'm sure Dana White will do it again just like you did back when your I went 5-5 crushing tomato cans so Dana could justify giving him another title shot that he lost. Drivesavers should have stayed retired. That's an embarrassment to legitimate Fighters.
And Herb Dean has become the new Steve mazzagatti. That was the worst stoppage I've seen ever. Main Event fight and you stop it after one significant strike? How much did GDR have to pay him to do that?
It was a good stoppage. Herb Dean’s job is to protect the fighter. When Aspen got dropped and just paused there and was dazed she clearly wasn’t defending herself in that moment when GDR was following up. It might seem pre mature but it was the right call. Had Herb Dean not stepped in Aspen Ladd would gotten seriously hurt. Also remember that horrible weight cut would have made that follow up shot even worse. Aspen with that bad weight cut and getting rocked she literally could have died. Props to Herb Dean.
You obviously know nothing about fighting. That was the worst stoppage ever.
@Zen Rhino Actually your lack of knowledge of the fight game is showing.
