    Holy **** life is good for fight fans right now. DC vs Stipe was epic. We got to watch Cody get knocked out making the same mistakes he made the first time around vs TJ. UFC 230 gets announced with Nate Diaz(+155) finally making a comeback vs LW belt contender Dustin Poirier(-190). Dustin has been beasting through the division but it's a great matchup for Nate, especially if they could get it to 5 rounds somehow. Yoel Romero(-200) vs a guy I love to watch, Paulo Costa (+160) also at 230. They're still putting together the main event and theres talk of Jon Jones headlining. It cant get any better than this.

    Oh wait, it ****ing can. Khabib(-160) vs Conor McGregor(+130) headlining UFC 229. Dana White is handling business right now, we just have to pray no one ****s up and gets pulled from the card.

    I'd take Nate, Paulo, and obviously Jon Jones anytime he fights. If Conor can work on take down defense I think he KOs Khabib with the way Khabib keeps his chin so high.

    I had a parlay hit with Nunes winning. That was huge.

    I’m more excited about Jon Jones fighting again. He’s already tweeted out he isn’t waiting until July to fight again.

    I used to be a fan of him. But now... I just need this dude to simmer down a bit.

    Did anybody else just get a whole lot richer on that masdival vs Askren fight?

    I couldn’t believe my eyes when Vegas had Ben as the favorite. Did they not watch him vs lawyer? Holy crap.

    Fastest knockout in UFC history. I knew it would be quick, but not that quick. Wow.

    He can’t hang in the UFC. Love the guy, but this is a whole new level.

    This is the end of Ben Askren.

    Still can’t get over this. How does an old wrestler become a favorite over a ****ing savage killer like Masdival when Robbie Lawler almost killed Ben.

    Should’ve put the damn house on Jorge.

    It was a decent C grade ppv... i expected a whole lot more from Askren and Holm..

    If Luke gets knocked out one more time its time to start thinking retirement, if he hasnt already... broken jaw, you wont see him till next year. He is doing too much stand up fighting and his brand has suffered from it.

    I didn’t expect anything more from Ben. He’s as limited as it gets in this game. He has one aspect to his game, wrestling, and just got torched by Jordan Burroughs. He has no striking whatsoever. Dana got what he wanted, which was for Ben to get KTFO.

    Tbf Luke kicked in the head after the bell and he wasn’t the same in the 2nd round.

    Thiago looked hella dangerous in there with the baddest mad alive, while on a torn ACL.

    I think Thiago is deserving of a rematch but Dana isnt gonna do it i bet. His heart stopped for a second when he heard Thiago got a score from the judges.

    Yeah. Dana is giving him cake matchups and bringing him along slowly. I wish they’d just throw his *** in there with DC, Stipe, or a Ngannou.
