Snow Hound Daylight robbery in the main! Very happy about the co-main and the two impressive subs earlier.

Wow, the stars really aligned for you. Mousasi was good but Anderson is Anderson.

P.S. That's one way to get people to sign up for Fight Pass.

linvillegorge Cowboy's head wasn't right coming into that fight. He didn't look the same walking out and he was never in that fight. Dude never pulls out of fights. With his grandmother who raised him terminally ill, this may have been one he should've pulled out of.

JDS looked like dog shit.

Nate Diaz looked fantastic.

Hmmm that went a bit wrong for Cowboy. Both stoppages were a fraction early to my mind but Dos Anjos and Overeem got the job done tidily.

Shamrock vs Slice, CM Punk, Fedor's return against nobody even knows yet in just two weeks time, to name just 3 recent examples and me using 'McGoat' with my tongue firmly in my cheek is the dumbest thing ever? I only put it to annoy the naysayers.

I'm generally not a fan of those fighters, but I do have to accept that those guys bring more attention and ultimately more money to the sport. Don't hate the player, hate the game. It's just a reflection of society in general.

The thing about McGregor is that it's 100% an act. He's always gracious and respectful of his opponent in the post-fight interviews and then snaps himself back into character for the press conference.

Hell, Mayweather became the most financially successful athlete ever despite having an insanely boring style by playing the PR game masterfully. Probably 90% of the people tuning into his fights were probably hoping to see him get brutally KO'd and that didn't bother him one bit. He just kept cashing those massive checks.
