Just saw it. Awesome competition. Im surprised nobody talks about Nurmagomedov as the best pound for pound fighter in history. He has simply demolished everyone Ive seen him fight. 25-0 is a ludicrous record in MMA.

As far as the girls go, the only one who could beat cyborg now is the big (and hot) Aussie. Cant remember her name.

I try to like Holm, but so many of her fights are her running away or doing her best to not make it entertaining.

Khabib is a bit of a phenom. His next fight should be v Ferguson for the title because McGregor doesn't seem to be coming back any time soon.

Yes Megan Anderson.

Whats Oirish laughing at?

P.S Holm has some sexy damn thighs and legs. Shes a bit manly in the head though. Not as bad as cyborg who is basucally a pre-op tranny. Not that I have a problem with that per se, but blatant steroid use in combat sports when youre literally trying to knock each other's brain so hard it shuts down, thats the worst kind of cheating and cyborg is perhaps the most blatant example apart from Brock Lesnar.

Khabib would murder him. Connor is a good striker with an advantageous reach; and an even better showman. Khabib is just a plain savage.

I would say Kabib takes a lot of hits to get close which could be a problem against Conor. But noted fighting midget Chad Mendes bypassed Conor's massive reach just by lunging, then either punched him or took him down and Khabib is a larger, better fighter that could wrestlefuck Conor over five rounds.

we just saw khabib ragdoll and savage one of the best strikers in mma history.as if it were a formality. Conor maybe better slightly I dunno. But Id be genuinely shocked if it were enough to stop Khabib. tbh Id be shocked if it were even a close fight. Id fully expect a similar mauling. Conor would be wise to duck him until retirement
If thats not happened already.

This shit right here... Barboza lands a full on wheel kick to the head and Khabib walks right through it like a terminator.

Watching the McGregor documentary you can see in the buildup to the Mendes fight Conor injured his knee two weeks out from it. It was touch and go if he could fight. Looked like injury had him at bay.

The problem with Holm is she's just not that good at MMA. Jackson's MMA for 2 years trained her for the sole purpose of defeating Rousey. Even before the Rousey fight, she barely beat Raquel Pennington in a decision. She then beat Rousey in part due to Rousey's hubris, but now resides in the zone of a name fighter that is 1-4 the past three calendar years. Considering how no one wants to fight Cyborg because no other female fighter is a decent true 145-pounder and Cyborg is a proven steroid fiend, she was in the fight because there's nothing else for her in her career. She's not a contender at 135 at the moment.

As far as Khabib, he doesn't get credit because he's Russian and not very marketable. MMA unfortunately has become more like boxing as far as being a wrestling-style promotional show instead of a sport, aided heavily by McGregor showing you make money off the fans not by being a good fighter but by your mouth. I blame the sale of UFC to WME in part for this.

Same here. Great body. She's quite cute as well, when her face isn't punched out.

As it grows there will probably be some more like Anderson Silva and Jon Jones come along. Imagine someone even better than Jones. That would be a something to see.

Fighting in a cage makes a lot more sense than falling out of a boxing ring and suffering injury from that.

I don't know about the best ever, lets not get carried away. Jon Jones record is way more impressive. Demetrious Johnson makes things look even easier, currently rocking a 9 fight streak at defending the title.

Great thighs and ass. Bit manly looking in the head though.

Thug Rose and Paige VanZant (sp?) are the hottest. Rose especially because she doesnt even try. Rocks up to press confernces shaved head, no make up and still hot AF.

You must be talking about grappling. Im starting BJJ soon but been doing (western) boxing for a bit now. The amount of old cabbage heads slurring and stuttering and just broken is x1 gillion in boxing circles compared to rugby.

There are MMA gyms here. I boxed as a teenager. Trained in a SBG affiliate in Dungloe nearly 10 years ago. Stopped for ages as Rugby became my no 1 sport.
I'm training in kickboxing at the minute, trying to lose some weight and get officially ranked.

We may disagree on Holly Holm but I agree in principle. One of the main attractions of watching the Australian Open women's tennis in a week or so. 8)
