Re: The MMA thread - UFC, Pride, Strikeforce etc.

One of the greatest fights I've ever seen. I was rooting hard for Conor but man. Nate is freakin beast. That man keeps getting punched hard and comes back like it's nothing. He is total badass. So dangerous. Unreal stamina and toughness. I couldn't help but like him. I felt a bit bad for him for losing but I'm happy for Conor. He deserved to win imo. It was so damn close tho. So close.

Fucking epic fight tonight between Diaz and McGregor. There were so many momentum shifts. McGregor showed that he is a 100% better fighter now than he was when he lost to Diaz the 1st time. Tremendous defense to stave off Diaz's takedown attempts despite being dead tired late in the fight.


Round 1: McGregor domination. Came out guns blazing just like the first fight. Was teeing off on Diaz's face again and again. Had 2 knockdowns and then refused to go and grapple with Diaz after Diaz was on the ground. McGregor got some nice shots in but Diaz was never in any real danger of being knocked out here, but it did open several cuts on his face,

Round 2: This was the mesh round. The first 2.5 minutes of it was an extension of round 1, with McGregor going batshit on Diaz's face but the second 2.5 minutes was a prequel of what was to come in round 3 with Diaz starting to batter McGregor. This round really showed the strength of Diaz because there was not a single moment where the momentum turned, not one shit or anything, all of a sudden McGregor seemed a bit slower and Diaz grew in strength. This was the closest round and ultimately the one people were debating afterwards.

Round 3: Diaz mauled McGregor all round. It's honestly a wonder that McGregor survived this round. The fact that he did not succumb despite his tiredness really shows his strength and improvement from the 1st fight. Ultimately for Diaz, not finishing things off here ended up costing him the fight.

Round 4: McGregor caught his 2nd wind and bounced back for a big big round victory here. He started tagging Diaz again with his fists and Diaz was having to wipe away blood from his eyes because his faces so cut up and bloody.

Round 5: Diaz bounced back and regained his composure in this round. However this round was fairly even as both men looked dead tired. McGregor's punches did not have any pop behind them and Diaz's takedown attempts were less and less enthusiastic. Diaz ultimately did get a takedown(after McGregor had a very short takedown of his own on Diaz) with like 10 seconds left, it was the first successful one he had all night and McGregor was somewhat saved by the bell and thus Diaz had the momentum heading into the decision and I thought he had wrapped up the win because of that.

In the end the judges ruled 48-47 McGregor, 47-47 Draw and 48-47 McGregor. Majority decision for the Irishman. Ultimately I think this was the correct decision. McGregor's defense on the day. The fact that Diaz was so unsuccessful on the takedown attempts proved to be the difference I think. Also the 3 early knockdowns from McGregor's fists were big in deciding the outcome. I perennially may have scored this bout a draw based on the dual nature of round 2 but McGregor winning is ok. I did not like Diaz before this fight but I gained much respect for him after this one and McGregor showed why he really is a great fighter.

There's no doubt now that this rivalry will become a trilogy.

I think this is legit sadly. He's been pulled out of his fight with Diaz. such a shame. Dana will be pissed Mcgregor makes the UFC the most money along with Ronda Rousey.

There's rumours that he's heading to the WWE.

Is Conor McGregor heading to WWE? "Retired" UFC star follows Shane McMahon and Triple H on Twitter - Mirror Online

+1

not a big loss. he went up 15 lbs (25 lbs from title weight) on a couple weeks notice to try to become the first ufc dual-weight champion. there's a reason why it's never been done before.

McGregor is a skilled fighter but too much of an attention whore for me personally.

So I think this will be pretty minor in terms of his career actually. If anything I hope he gets more humble and respects the opponent, even when he's dominating. Showboating is what got Anderson Silva dropped off the top perch, Conor should learn from that.

We could/should probably merge this threa with the MMA thread @Litotes ?

Thanks, I guess she needed that submission in the end, I still think Tate should've finished her off in the 2nd, if this match finished and Holm won then Tate would've saw this as her chance.

Look at what Holm's coaches said here. They were totally right about Tate being a more dangerous match-up for Holm than Ronda.

"And you know, it only takes one wrong move in this sport to lose everything"

So true. This reminds of Conor's fuckery He should know this very well.
It's funny because Tate is a worse match for Holm than Ronda but Ronda is a worse match for Tate than Holm and Holm is a much worse match for Ronda than tate, it's like a bloody Rock paper scissors where they cancel eachother out.

Will be interesting to see what happens when Ronda fights Tate again, she's owned tate in her previous fights but Tate has improved so much since then and might have a chance this time. Ronda's still going to want a rematch with Holm though whether she's champ or not, she doesn't want a 0-1 on her record against anyone.
