Lawyer with a 38second KO of Price was shocking. What a way to go out in your last fight!

Nickal crumbled his 5’8 opponent!

Hooker grinder out a win against Turner. One fighter was 6 foot and the other 6’3 at Lightweight!

Dricus floored Whittaker with a jab and pounced on him to put him away. Impressive win and then Adesanya classes up the post fight interview repeatedly calling the White South African a ******.

Main event is going how I figured. All Volk ground n pound. He did get cut by a Yair elbow.

Volk put it on him. While Yair had his moments, this was an incredible fight by Volk. He uses his exceptionally long reach with his strength very well.

Volkanovski needed to defend as he was in the position of the only current white champ (after Jiri vacated), Makhachev may be viewed as white but that's dicey. I predicted that Du Plessis could cause problems for Robert Whittaker as he is so big strong and powerful and now with better cardio and Whittaker can get rocked. Jalin is just a big bully with a size advantage, Hooker had the striking and reach to win. Nickal KOed that frozen negro.

The promotion and announcers were all doing the nausea inducing Mexican pride bit.

Joe Rogan finally said the other day that he thinks the 2020 election was rigged. He shook hands warmly with the Man of the People:

Yes I watched the fight and many of the YouTube vids of the crowd where Trump was prominent. He knows how to play to the crowd and is way more popular with the UFC crowd than any other politician.

However, ove listened to a few of his speeches recently and believe has no chance to win the general election. At this point Trump makes a better celebrity than a politician.
