No way she'll fade into oblivion in anything. She's either going to do WWE for awhile to keep her profile huge, stay in shape, and set up her post-UFC career by dabbling in the squared circle.

Inevitably she'll have a rematch this summer or in a year or two with Holm and it'll be the last big-money fight of her career. Either way I think her prospects in the WWE are sky-high. She could be the highest profile wrestler on WWE's roster immediately upon signing.

I don't know if it'd work out for her as a "diva", since she's such legit bad ass and it'd be so unbelievable that any girl wrestler could touch her. At least with Lesnar, there's other legit tough guys that would get killed in a real fight but could believably challenge him in a staged match.

They could do exactly what they did with Lesnar last year and give her the belt and keep her off camera except for every other PPV or something, but people wouldn't care as much because woman.

So you can get kicked in the head, knocked to the ground, and then someone can get down and start punching you in the head even more? This makes boxing look honorable.

you realize there are far more deaths in mma than in boxing right

someone can tap to strikes and submissions in mma, and fights get stopped a lot quicker than in boxing. I cant think of a fight where someone in boxing truly stopped the fight due to punches (even the no mas doesnt really count)

Good for Diaz. He's a Stockton, California native, which is just down the 5 from where I live. 

 

I like McGregor, but he brought on all the :censored: he's getting right now by running his mouth so much. I actually think that's one of the things I dislike about MMA/Boxing the most. These fighters are always so overhyped, and then go out and seem to drop, like, the very next match. There seems to be a disproportionate amount of times where a fighter is called the "best ever" or "unbeatable", and then they go out and get worked. That's kind of off-putting, IMO. 

 

 

 

Well, that and the fact that I find people punching each other in the face four our entertainment to be off-putting in general.

MMA set to be legal in New York.

 

It's incredibly stupid that it took this long, but hey it is New York.

 

Some in the national media were telling us, in New York, that the unions were behind the ban.  Like, huh?  It was a bunch of Assemblymen, former leader Sheldon Silver and a group of Albany-area republicans who were anti-MMA, for reasons no one really knows.  Most likely, just grumpy old men who believed the bs put forth by the pro-boxing people.  Those who were against it were voted out or left because of criminality.

I don't think he was robbed. Connor had the first, second and fourth. Diaz the third and fifth. If the fight went 15 seconds longer, Diaz would have won. But it didn't.

I think Mac lost the second from the final minute or so of that round, and the takedown at the end of the 5th gave that round to Diaz.

 

After the two judges went Conor and draw, I was sure the third judge was gonna go with Diaz to make it a draw.  But hey I'm glad Conor won, but I'm not convinced he really took that 2nd round.

It's next weekend? Wow.  After so long, it feels so sudden.

 

I don't bet on sports, but if I did I'd bet the house against him.

The FS1/UFC doc-series, "The Evolution of Punk" on his change is very well done. DG, even if you don't like MMA, I recommend you watch it as it is on YouTube.
