I don’t get ESPN...why do they think people want to tune in to their pre-fight or post-fight broadcasts with people like Usman, Chiesa, and other bodies-void-of-charisma as analysts.

I wasn't mad at Chiesa in a suit with a haircut, but you make a valid point.

DC is ranked 3rd and he's retired, ffs.

Here are the real current UFC rankings:

C: Stipe
1: Francis
2: Blaydes
3: JBJ

The end
All 4 of those match ups would be competitive for 43 year old Lesnar.

He would rag doll Francis in any grappling exchange, take him down and beat the piss out of him in my opinion.

None of what you said changes my opinion that it was a lacklustre ending.

Sakai folded. The 4th round beating took his spirit. He was done after a weak takedown. I'd have been happier if it had really taken those elbows to finish Sakai instead of just him giving up.
I like your opinion

was just giving mine

I saw a war and Reem broke Sakai

If your dissapointed in Sakai I can see that, he had decided that he can't fight from bottom and stopped defending himself

You sure about that?
If your talking about u picking Sakai no

I checked and it wasn't you...then edited the post...good pick

While I agree that if Sakai had more accuracy or power he would have won that fight...I think Reem deserves all the credit for the Win

You don't beat another UFC HW contender without earning it...Reem showed a lot and took big ass shots and hung in there and made adjustments as he often does

This isn't a personal attack on yourself. Reem doesn't have a chin, and somebody more skilled would've slept him with that performance.
You want me to give him credit? He beat an out of shape amateur with very little experience.

Happy?

They will probably put him straight in for a title shot if he can get one win man, sad as it is to say.
Agreed

Doesn't make him worthy of ranking above guys with HW resumes though

Does make good business sense

At HW he is at big risk of being bashed and damaged heavily by many guys in that division

personal attack? lol
was not taken that way

Just a lack of respect for the winner of a high level MMA fight...we all know he has a soft chin for the last 20 years...that isn't new...winning regardless of that is worth respect...dude is a legend and still crushing top 10 guys at 40...great stuff

I have been happy all night, hope you are also
