    My son is trying to convince me to order this show since my bday is the 12th. I've had some pretty good cards close to or on my bday. McGregor v. Aldo, Penn v. Sanchez

    Condit was my #3 favorite fighter of all time. I saw him in WEC and just fell in love with the fact he lived up to the sick nickname of Natural Born Killer. He couldn't really get that fire going after the Woodley fight, not like he should have been able to but what can you do? Let's be honest, he never really had any easy fights and has been around for a long ass time. Only 37, but he's been in those wars....I doubt this is the end but who knows, let's hope.

    Who have we got on Saturday then?

    Leaning Volkanovski against Ortega. T-City is the flashier, more dangerous fighter and if it ends inside the distance there's not much doubt in my mind it will be him with his hand raised, but Volk is so good at just dissecting an opponent's weapons and controlling the fight with range, distance control, strong clinch work and timing. He's very good. He's not exciting, but he's kind of like a fire hydrant GSP, well rounded, smart, technical and tactical. I don't think it's a rout, one of those where you can probably put up an argument for Ortega winning, but he gets it done on points.

    Shevchenko vs. Murphy will be a rout. Valentina seems to vary from destroyer to point fighter every fight so you don't know whether you're going to get a mauling or a shutout, but she's excellent. It's a division she will just never get beat in I don't think. Best chance is a flash KO and it's just not happening at 125. She's too good, and the other women lack any real power. And if they have power, she just routs them on the ground anyway. Slight lean towards a finish because Murphy will definitely bring it and that probably opens up holes on the ground for the TKO.

    Lawler vs. Diaz 2 is such a good fight because I have absolutely no idea how it goes down. No clue. Both durable as they come, with Lawler's only real stoppage loss in 10 years coming against Woodley, and he's put some rounds in against some monsters. Matt Brown, Cowboy Cerrone and Carlos Condit have some of the best kill ratios in the sport and Lawler stood up to it. Still went 5 rounds with Colby and RDA when past his prime and pretty much target practice. Nick's only been stopped on cuts in nearly 2 decades. Obviously hasn't fought in years but himself fought killers like Daley, Silva and Gomi and survived. But they're older and working with 5 rounds. I can't look past Diaz really going to the body and sapping Lawler, but that's because we haven't seen Nick Diaz past his prime because he hasn't fought. We know Lawler's faded whereas Diaz is a question mark. Maybe his legs have gone and Lawler runs through him. I love the fight anyway. Diaz in 3 by TKO, or maybe he chokes him out after hurting him and creating a scramble.

    Blaydes vs. Rozenstruick is a sneaky good fight. Blaydes is unique in that he's been obliterated by Ngannou and Lewis so he's clearly going to struggle for a title shot, considering Rozenstruick is probably the best guy he can face and he still has to hope Gane beats Francis and doesn't take on Jones or Stipe after. So he'll be stuck fighting backwards again for a bit. Rozenstruick is similar, got ruined by Ngannou and dissected by Gane so there's no chance he's getting a shot either. Yet, it's #4 vs. #6 in the heavyweight division so it's still a big one. Blaydes is the better fighter but Bigi Boy can hit. For me though, Blaydes grinds out an ultra cautious decision coming off that Black Beast knockout.

    Andrade vs. Calvillo isn't terrible. I like watching Andrade fight. Last 3 wins by knockout. I think she's the clear #2 in the division which made her one sided loss to Shevchenko all the more eye opening. She hardly lay a glove on her. Calvillo is decent but she'll struggle to keep Andrade off her and I like Jessica to get another stoppage.

    Moraes vs. Dvalishvili is a great crossroads fight. Moraes hasn't looked great his last 4 but he's lost to the former champion, squeaked past Aldo, and got stopped by #3 and #4 in the world. Levels. Merab has looked very good but he's fought a level considerably below Moraes and done it predominantly with grappling. I guess there's a chance Moraes is spent but he hasn't been losing to grapplers, Font and Cory are fast strikers. Merab lacking power might let Moraes let his hands go too. I've got Moraes wiping him out early personally, and I like Merab's style. I just don't think he has the offensive fire power to trouble one of the best one round fighters on the planet. If it goes past the first Merab grinds out a decision, but Moraes needs a statement.

    Hooker vs. Haqparast is a great fight too. Hooker only really has bangers. Nasrat looks the part of a steady ranked contender too. Expect it to be a war and a coin flip on points, with the slight upset going for Haqparast given Hooker's issues with getting a visa and the possible drop in motivation going from headline fights and Conor cards to 7th fight down in the afternoon in Vegas. It'll be a good one though.

    Abdurakhimov vs. Daukaus might be the worst top 10 male fight in recent memory, talentwise. Like most top 10 fights you see a route to the title for one or both, or at least the top 5. Not here though. How fun it will be depends if Daukaus can hold off the takedown. He's got good hands but unproven against anybody that is decent and not ancient. He's fighting a guy that hasn't fought in 2 years and lost when he's gone up a level, but who can definitely grind a win out. Probably the big Russian with a sloppy late round ground and pound stoppage.

    Not much into Modafferi vs. Santos, but it's a ranked fight with a former title contender against a girl on a win streak with a gaudy record so it has some value. Hopefully Santos wins and looks good doing so because the division needs a contender, but it's likely a close 29-28 either way points scrap.

    Meric vs. Turner I really like. Undefeated 7-0 guy with 7 finishes against a guy on a win streak who has finished 3 of his last 4 fights in the UFC. Sneaky good scrap on the early prelims. Always like to see a prospect get a win in a position like this so hopefully Medic gets another finish and starts to get a bit of hype. Dangerous early and Turner has been stopped on strikes 3 times.

    Fiorot vs. Silva I like too. Fiorot lost her debut but is on a 7 fight, 5 stoppage streak. 2-0 in the UFC and has looked a potential contender. Just a relentless pressuring striker, comes at you until you break. Opponent is 2-1-1 in the UFC but finished both wins by submission so this has the potential to be a fun one. Either Fiorot smashes her or we see her tested on the ground. Valentina's division so hopefully one of them makes a bit of a statement. Got Fiorot by TKO, I expect her to be ranked after this weekend.

    Roberson vs. Maximov is a glass cannon in Roberson (four first round submission losses in the UFC!) against an unproven, unbeaten debutant. Roberson has lost to good opposition and beat the lesser guys so I'd expect him to pull off the win, but Maximov has finished 5 of 6 and has grappling experience so maybe he exposes Roberson's glaring weakness instead. Got Roberson on points though.

    Semelsberger vs. Sano is weird. 2-1 in the UFC vs. a guy who hasn't fought in 4 and a half years, hasn't won in 7 and a half, and 0-2-1 in his last 3. Odd. I guess it's a lay up for Semelsberger who should stop a guy like that in a round.

    Morales vs. Pearce, can't really fault guys coming off UFC wins fighting in the 14th fight down. Morales is pretty decent, beaten some good fighters and only lost to Chikadze. He should get the win.

    Epic card. First I've paid much attention to since Conor vs. Dustin 3.

    It's a stacked card. My son is a big fan of Nick Diaz, loved the first fight with Lawler. Diaz definitely stays in shape, but fighting shape, totally different. He's a fighter at his core so that helps but yeah, ton of time off. IDK if that's good or bad.

    Main event is a toss up and I'd like to see either win. Max next in line? Hopefully.

    I prefer them at 170 but I bet Lawler is just as happy. Lawler was alright at 185 in Strikeforce, Diaz I think just has that one fight against Anderson which was a total joke. That fight is why people get popped for weed. It's not a performance enhancer it's a dream fight killer lol.

    Oh wow. Dana hadn't commented on it yet when I posted it. I was sure he would be defensive of him, but nope. It's a cliché but Jon Jones worst enemy is really himself.

    Classic Jon Jones. Hours after humble bragging about his dedication to the transition to heavyweight. He's a sociopath. Can't help himself. It's a shame we'll probably never get him laid out in the octagon.

    Glad the fight card's pretty much stayed in tact. Unbelievably. Lost the Fiorot fight and Karl Roberson dropped off but all the big fights have stayed on the show. First time I remember that happening in forever, always seems to be a big drop out inside 2 weeks out of fight night. Potential for a couple of classic fights tonight, the main event in particular will have a bit more tension than the Volk/Holloway fights because Ortega has more genuine finishing ability than Max - Max always has potential to overwhelm, but Volk has to be perfect for 25 minutes or he gets his neck taken or runs into a knee. He's got a lot to prove in this one. Lawler vs. Diaz is going to be a lot of fun. Valentina is entertaining when she puts the afterburners on and Lauren Murphy should bring the fight to her to enable that. Big heavyweight fight. Andrade is always fun. Moraes vs. Morab should be fireworks for a round. Hooker vs. Naqparast might end up being a banger. Daukaus is a fun heavyweight. Should be a great night of fights following Joshua vs. Usyk.

    On cue, Aljo out of next month's title fight. 5 weeks away. Got to think they shift to Yan vs. Sandhagen or most likely Font for an interim title. Which I'm not big on but considering Yan would still be champion if he wasn't an idiot momentarily, it's not too bad. Would put the timeline back to mean Aldo vs. Dillashaw is a possibility too as Dillashaw surely won't wait until fall next year for a shot.

    Man I love Volkanovski so much. Those 2 subs had me scared though. Ortega is tough as hell for sure. Can't take that away from him. His face looks like hamburger meat.

    That was a really good fight card. When you've got as clean a knockout as Semi the Jedi's that early you know you're in for a good one.

    Volk is terminator. What a pace. It's a real shame they rushed that Holloway rematch (like most rematches the last 5 years - TJ/Cody springs to mind) because their next fight won't be as anticipated as it should be for such a high level fight. Obviously Holloway needs to beat Yair but it's the obvious next fight. While they try and get Allen and/or Chizadke over the line with a top 5 win anyway. Chikadze/Zombie and Allen/Kattar makes a world of sense. Fight was incredible, Ortega doesn't lose a whole lot in defeat given his toughness and how close he was to the finish in the wild third round. Rebound him with Yair if he loses and he's not far from another shot.

    Valentina going to Valentina. It's a shit division though, make no mistake. Maybe she'd still have that record in a better weight class still, and you can only beat what's in front of you, but Maia, Eye, Murphy, Carmouche and Chookagian aren't title level. Her best wins are still at bantamweight (Kaufman, Pena and Holm) as well as the title winning effort against Joanna. Other than that, scrubs. It's a worry that nearly 8 years in to the women's MMA movement in the UFC and this is the level of title contender we get. As bad as Mighty Mouse made his challengers look, your Moraga's and Borg's were still very good fighters. Lauren Murphy is a tough girl with a basic skillset and she got to a title shot. Mad. The standard should be better by now, beyond the strawweight division which is genuinely very good. Particularly if Andrade goes back down.

    Lawler and Diaz was an enjoyable old guy fight. They stood in the pocket, threw shots, took shots, and one man was left standing. It wasn't high level by any means, and you worry about either man against anybody with skill and athleticism at this point, but against each other it was fun. Diaz is clearly done and came for the paycheque, but he did it admirably. Lawler hopefully won't be rushed into another fight for him to put a contender over and instead gets maybe the Price/Oliviera winner.

    Blaydes did his job but didn't impress. He's going to have to fight down the rankings for a while until the division sorts itself out up top. Fairly sure Jones never fights again so Stipe probably gets the winner of Gane/Ngannou. Blaydes maybe gets Daukaus, or Tybura if he beats Volkov. Bigi fights Black Beast next surely, the most natural fight in the division for a fun TV main event. Ironically earns as much in a loss as in defeat even though he looked shit.

    Andrade is too good for anybody below championship level. Fun watching her smash the overmatched contenders though. Calvillo had nothing for her at all.

    Merab vs. Moraes was awesome. Moraes has no petrol and came up against a guy that didn't get his doors blown off. Just. Overcame adversity and then just wrecked the guy once he was spent. Important finish too.

    Hangman Hooker was just a level above Nasrat. More weapons. Glad that he's back in the win column, fun fighter to watch.

    Daukaus knocking the slobber out of that guy was gross. He's proof that the heavyweight division kinda sucks, slow and heavy handed like most of them.

    https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2021/...-front-of-kids
    On Tuesday, MMA Junkie acquired a copy of the police report through a public record’s request, which stated that Jones left his fiancée, Jessie Moses, bloodied after allegedly assaulting her with their three children present.

    According to the report, the domestic incident took place inside a room at Caesars Palace hotel and casino. Moses said the altercation occurred after Jones came back agitated from a night out with friends while she was asleep. When she tried to leave the room, Moses said Jones pulled her hair. According to Moses, their children were present during the altercation.

    An account taken from a Caesars Palace security guard stated that Moses came to the desk and asked for a key to her room. The security guard observed blood on Moses, who cried when asked if she was OK. Moses explained she did not feel safe going back to the room, and she was taken with her children to a security office. Once there, Jones’ youngest child asked security, “Can you call the cops?”

    When interviewed by police, Moses was asked if Jones had gotten physical with her, to which she responded, “Ummm not too physical but a little bit yeah.” According to the report, police observed “blood all over Moses’ clothing and a bump with dried up blood on the lower part of her lip.” When asked about her bloody lip, Moses stated that her lips get dry.

    The police report described Moses as “scared to even talk about Jonathan.” When police entered the hotel room with Moses to observe where the altercation took place, they found blood on the bed sheets and shoes strewn about.

    “She still seemed very scared as to the release of Jonathan from jail,” arresting officer Boschetti wrote in the report. Moses asked him how long she had before Jones would be released from jail.

    Moses refused to have pictures taken of her injuries and declined to accept a domestic violence card with information about a restraining order.

    When police arrived, casino security stated Jones had just left the premises with two male adults. After a description was broadcasted on police radio, Jones was quickly found walking on a nearby street. Jones became “irate” as he was arrested and smashed his head onto the front hood of a LVMPD patrol vehicle, which “left a medium size dent” and paint chipped off.

    While in custody, Jones was “an emotional rollercoaster,” according to the report. Initially angry, Jones told officers a lawsuit would be filed against the department for “ruining the biggest night of his life.” Jones went from agitated to sad to a state of calmness.

    Jones admitted he had been going through difficult times with his fiancée but denied getting physical with her. Jones recalled saying goodbye to his children prior to his night out and then heading back to the hotel room to get $10,000 for a trip to a strip club. Though Jones claimed Moses didn’t have issue with the behavior, the strip club trip started an argument about their relationship in which he told her to “f*ck off.” He denied pulling Moses’ hair or hitting her and said he did not remember any blood or him leaving the hotel.

    After the interview, Jones joked with officers that “he would like to take us all on and see what we could do” before he faked like he was going to run away. He was warned that it wasn’t a joking matter and would be tased if he feinted running away again. He was transported to the Clark County Detention Center and booked.

    When I watched his appearance on the JRE podcast I couldn't stop but think damn this dude is mad entitled, doesn't have any real empathy. Joe seemed to call him out on not really seeming to take responsibility. He always has an answer for everything and I'll admit to siding with him more often than not in certain situations but he's crossed the line several times with nothing more than some community service.

    The UFC have a couple guys at the top that think they can walk on water.

    O'Malley wants Cruz. I think Cruz is too fast for him.

    Eh, O'Malley is yesterday's news. It's all about Paddy The Laddy now.

    I hate everything about Dominic Cruz. I hate the constant condescending tone of his voice, the never changing smug look on his face. I hate his fighting style, I hate that he backs it up. He's one step above Cejudo so I don't want to see him wheelchair bound or anything wild but holy fuck....I can't wait to see Pedro knock this dude out.

    That might even be a better card than the last PPV, and it's not even PPV! Jan/Glover in a battle of the lovely old men for the title, Yan vs. Sandhagen stylistically is a better fight than the Stirling one, Dan Hooker is Islam's biggest test yet and is fit and in form, Chimaev finally returning against The Leech in a big test, Volkov vs. Tybura a sneaky relevant HW fight, Volkan vs. Ankalaev is a banger at 205 with Ankalaev a huge prospect, Amanda Ribas returning from her loss, and Lerone Murphy and Ismagulov looking big prospects too. On a decent time for us Brits too.

    It's literally not on PPV. Will be on ESPN or ABC. 268 the week after is behind the paywall.

    Cut her. Mediocre fighter, mediocre record. Misses weight more than Kelvin. Every excuse under the sun, even if some are valid (not going to argue about periods) but she's mid. MIDDY

    Sandhagen/Yan is the first interim title fight I've seen where they might as well be fighting for the real belt. Let's be honest.

    100%. Dude we just saw Patricio in Bellator vacate the LW title after losing a FW fight to McKee. He said he basically didn't feel right for being champion after losing his last fight plus his brother can't get a title shot unless they fight. My point being that Sterling should not have accepted the title, vacated it on the spot, and when he's ready come back and fight again.

    Instead, the guy is talking stupid shit left and right. I didn't even know you could win a title via DQ in sports I'm so deep in pro wrestling with their rules.

    It also kind of sucks TJ is hurt but shit, how does Yan even make weight??

    Masvidal vs. Edwards at UFC 269, with the flyweight title fight moving back to UFC 270. Poirier vs. Oliviera for the lightweight title, the female GOAT, a top 5 PPV attraction in a grudge match #1 Contenders fight, the bantamweight GOAT against an underappreciated Pedro Munhoz, Cody Garbrandt's flyweight debut, and Sean O'Malley's step up in competition. Plenty going on that night.

    I'll believe Masvidal v. Edwards is a go when Edwards shows up to the Octagon that night. I just don't think Edwards truly wants that fight. He wanted Nate Diaz instead of a top 10 guy. Dude is whack.

    The card is sick though.

    Leon will show up, COVID permitting I guess come December. He'll fancy it against a Masvidal coming off a vicious loss. How many times have we seen a guy drop an L coming off a devastating loss in a title fight? Look at Tony Ferguson, or Benavidez recently. Best time to fight a top 5 guy.

    Ponzinibbio vs. Neal on that card. Fucking banger. It's rich on exciting fights on paper, not just ranked guys.

    Luis Pena was released from the UFC.

    Meanwhile, Jon Jones has not. Because Jon Jones makes money.

    Meanwhile, Jon Jones has been banned until further notice from Jackson-Winklejohn.

    But he still says they'll help him train, just not in their gym. I'm sure Jon isn't rich enough to afford his own gym or anything...

    He can afford his own gym all he wants with all the yes men surrounding him like he always has. It's not going to change the fact that he's been focusing on the wrong record.

    Life is catching up with Jones. Both in and out of the cage. It's just wild to think what could've been these last 5 years with him. Instead he's spent the majority suspended or on the outside looking in. I will say this, the double standards are there. A nobody gets released but Jones and McGregor are still there. But the promoter seems to only have enough space in his "dealing with fighter bullshit" for McGregor considering how he responds to their actions. It seems like the older son just isn't in the favorable position anymore. McGregor's just on a totally different planet though even compared to guys like Jon Jones.

    Double standards exist in every avenue of business and operations. The bigger the asset you are the more latitude for untoward behavior you're allowed. It's an entirely common, though unfortunate of course, occurrence.

    Jim Miller and Andrei Arlovski still doing their thing. Arlovski's abandoned any and all finishing instinct to develop into an elusive point fighter and it keeps him in the winners column enough to keep his job. Miller's pretty much the opposite, now a shit or bust finisher who gets outpointed if the finish isn't there early. I think UFC 300 is Summer 2024 so the mad bastard might just make it. If he gets matched like he did last night he should avoid the dreaded 4 fight slump. Yet they're still 50/50 fights because he's very shopworn at this stage. Legends the pair of them.

    Aspen Ladd's had about the shittest fortnight you can have for a fighter. Missed weight, dropped out of the fight, quick turnaround and a spectacularly drab loss in a main event. She was probably in line for a title shot if she made weight and beat Chiasson, now she's an unreliable blowout in 2 divisions, and an uninspiring fighter to boot. Young enough to come again, but on the surface, whatever 'it' is, it's not there for her.
