Last week's trial was too easy a bet to know he was going to get his A$$ beat.

Holly Holm is just 2-4 in her last six matches, but she is so great.

Covington asking for a White House invite after his win; I wonder if he actually gets it.

He's played the game well...

 

Dana and his Fertittas' (Frank and Lorenzo) back and donate to our President, as does the other billionaire cousin. Fertitta Tillman, who now owns the Houston Rockets, the Golden Nugget casinos beand is the benefactor to the University of Houston.

Overall, that card was pretty damn good.

There were some great fights; Romero-Whittaker, Covington-RDA, and Carla-Claudia were all pretty good.  Some decent heavyweight action too, with some of the younger guys stepping up in a division that is pretty ancient. 

 

Some people are screaming robbery over the last fight, but I had it 48-47 Whittaker with him taking rounds 1,2,4.  I'm admittedly a bit biased as a Whittaker fan though.

A 1-1 fighter said this about your mans, Phil...

Quote

“Stop! That’s what I would tell him, stop. I don’t, it’s not a disrespectful thing, but this is a sport where your life is on the line, you know. And I get it and I respect him 100 percent for being willing to step in there, but you’re just putting yourself at risk. I mean, I sent him to the hospital, know what I’m saying? And I’m not top-tier level, I know what it is with me and my skills. Can I compete with some guys in the UFC? Of course I can. But as far as trying to continue with the sport, I highly advise against it, just for safety.”

Punk looked confused, slow, and tired throughout the fight. That was equivalent to Undertaker matches now.

Not anymore, but he just lost, so there's a chance he's "All In"

 

He has nothing to gain by doing that.  

 

Re: real fighting - is a 2 year gap normal?  Was he training for those two years, or did he just decide to fight again a few months ago?  While I hate that fighting is a sport, I admire that he wanted to do something and gave it a shot - especially something as dangerous.  But is he dedicated 100% to it, or is he living the fat/rich lifestyle and then shifting into fight mode when he feels like it?  It seems like for most of these guys, fighting is literally their life, to the point where their spouses are also fighters.

Being off that long w/o being injured or suspended is rare, then again the last time Conor was in the octagon was November 2016. 

Punk was not injured, he was just training.  He relocated to Milwaukee to be where his gym is. 

 

The UFC really didn't know what to do with him following his initial loss, plus he's somewhat became a regulatory risk too.  His first fight was in Ohio, where in order to be licensed, one typically needs five amateur MMA bouts before turning professional. Punk had zero and was given a license based on his years as a pro wrestler.  That's why is opponent on Saturday was 0-1 and works as the chief photographer of a feeder series to the UFC who hand picked by Dana White.

Punk could have gotten himself killed. He was basically defenseless the entirety of the third round.
