  1. After the bell 1st round, J punched Weili (ooops my bad), At the end of 2nd round J head butted her (ooops my bad). Damage? Obvious! Forehead and broken nose. Agressor? Obvious! Questions about the Champs stamina in 4th and 5th? Now answered! She went in the Champ, came out the Champ!

  2. I really don’t think coach was trying to steal her moment. I’m sure it was just a lot of Adrenalin and emotion running through and he didn’t notice. Chinese culture is not like that, they don’t care about fame or the spotlight.

  3. lol stfu you two bias fools. if you're going to have a podcast discussing certain matches, make sure you either watched it a second time or even a third time before making bold proclamation as to who won the fight. you preferred Joanna so you're going to talk like Joanna edged out. Joanna had so little success in the fight apart from the punch after the bell in the first, the illegal headbutt in the second. the ones that were good was the kick to wei li's jaw second round and the spinning backfist in the 5th. she looked like that cause she was losing the fire fight. and to even suggest that she won, i know you're either bias, or have not rewatched the fight again, but have the cheek to talk about it on a podcast. i mean if you're going to talk about something make sure you're up and up with the subject matter. if not, its just noise.

  5. I thought it would have been a draw between Joanna and Weili. It was too close to call. I dont think it would have been wrong either way. It will be interesting to see where Joanna goes from here. I can see Weili taking some time off and let the division work itself out. There is no clear no 1 contender. Beneli has won 4 in a row. Crazy two years ago, people were calling for him to be cut. Times have changed.

  6. To me and every one I talked to said Zhang won that by unanimous or split. Although Joanna did a lot better than I thought she would. I just watched the fight again and felt the same. Great fight for both of them. Nice cast!! keep up the good stuff!!

    You guys said something about Alex Cowboy have 9 childs…
    He is not a good father though, not so long ago Alex Cowboy assaulted his ex girlfriend and rode a motorcycle with his 5 months old son, while he was drunk, he could have killed his own son

    You guys can easily check those information on brazilian sites
    Personally i am not a Alex Cowboy's fan anymore after this incident

  8. The coach stood infront of Weili because people were spitting and throwing drinks on her during the walk out, it was so disgusting to watch and no one talked about it. I was there at the fight and saw everything, i was so shocked people were so racist yelling Coronavirus slurs at her.

  9. The co main event was crazy I had the champ retained the title because i don’t know about you guys but it was kinda hard to watch I thought that thing on her head was gonna pop I was honestly surprised it wasn’t stopped early would of been a nasty bloody mess if she was caught with an elbow…

  10. Scoring 5 judges credentialed in the latest mma rulesOpen scoring .5 deduction for all illegal actions/behaviors, no more warnings with the ability to confirm with video playback. Each cage grab, eye poke, etc is an automatic 5 deduction. Something needs to be done for groundgame scoring I just don’t know what would be fair

  11. She didnt contest it or get upset because she knew it was close and couldve gone either way.

    Contesting it and getting upset wouldve been a terrible look and people would peg her as a sore loser. The victor wasnt clear. You cant really complain about a close fight. Fan scores are straight down the middle and media scores are mostly for zhang.

  12. Yoel landed all the big shots. Why is everyone praising Izzy for not engaging and slamming Yoel for it? Izzy got plopped in the face early and wasn't going in after that. How any of the judges could give 4 rounds to Adesanya is beyond me. Love this show though! Thanks KB and AJ!

  13. Theres no need for half points. The logic behind the idea is good. The only thing is we dont even use all 10 points. We actually are scoring rounds on a 2-0 point system… 10 – 8 points a round is really just 2 – 0. A fight that is 50 to 45 is really 5 to 0. We need to use all 10 point in the judging or why even have them>
