I was there. Spent 7 hours in and out of boredom, but Holm completely owning Rousey was worth it. That was quite the spectacle.

Can't fathom people who pay to watch this stuff, I've grown up on the sweet science and this just looks awkward brutality with no respect

I see the amazing skill on so many levels , all the different forms of martial arts.

There is a high level of respect between the fighters , its there to be seen.

Really? Jumping on someone who's down to further hammer their unprotected head, plenty of respect.

The serious brain injuries these fighters will be dealing with in years to come is enough for me to talk anyone out of participating in this brutal, senseless sport.

Just saying...

There are strict guidelines regarding knockouts. Im not sure what % of past fighters in the UFC have issues. Time will tell if the precautions are enough.

I get it isnt everyones cup of tea. I enjoy it , Id loved to be skilled enough to fight this way , or brave enough.

Yes, Rocky XI.

He fights his brother in law (Burt Young)
You can tell Rockys not the same man who beat Creed.

Haha I was only kidding boney, however the idea is that when someone stops protecting their head the fight is over, so theoretically there shouldnt be repeated shots. I guess thats why so many boxers dont have brain injuries

I've had a man crush on the Diaz boys since I was fortunate to meet them in Vegas in 2011. Raw as ****, the two of them.

Very pleased with this weekend, with both the Raiders and Nate gettin' it done!

Ive watched the main card.

Hunt knew Mir wasn't getting up as soon as it connected . Mir has packed the weight on. Cant remember him being so sloppy.

Magny/Lombard fight was a cracker. You can be all muscle and not have the cardio to last.

Glad Bec won. She looked out on her feet too but she has had a long lay off from fighting which may have had an effect

Reports that McGreggor is hanging up the gloves - whether that's before or after 200, I'm not sure.

It comes from his Twitter where it definitely looks like he's trolling but some sources say it's true. I think he's trolling though..

It's legit - UFC pulled him from the fight because he wouldn't meet his promotional obligations. He's then thrown the toys out of the cot and retired.
