    Man, I cannot believe that Cowboy is fighting psychopath JG only THREE months after Ferg tried to introduce his eyeball to his brain. I don't think this was a good idea but more power to him. Cowboy has been in overdrive for so many years now. He has aged quite a bit from it all.

    Todd Duffee? Seems like I have not heard that name in years. Didn't he fight Shamrock at UFC 9 or was it Severn at UFC 5?

    Not a great card, missing a bit in terms of top 5 ranked fighters, but not a bad card at all, 6 or so fights I am interested in.

    Something I noticed when doing my survival pool picks, a lot of guys coming off of losses on this card.

    Donald Cerrone reacts to BMF title talk
    Donald Cerrone is aging like a fine wine. Fatherhood is doing him right.

    Coming from a guy who used to dislike Donald.

    So amped for this. Fight of the year candidate if it goes like we all think it will.

    I would say Gaethje has a chance (not good chance) but I would base it on punching power and strong finisher not wrestling.

    Skelly burnt out his arms. He's done.

    I was thinking more in terms of defensive wrestling. How would you rank his defensive wrestling against the other 155ers?
    --- Post Added -- Sep 14, 2019 at 5:34 PM, ---
    Skelly 30-27 or 29-28 but feel like he is going to lose a split decision.

    Gaethje almost never gives up a takedown. I would rate it very good.

    I might be underrating Khabib's striking, but kind of think that someone with power and decent striking who can stop the takedown will beat him.

    "Hunter Azure had to quit wrestling because of injury but then found MMA....." If you have injuries that prevent you from wrestling, how is MMA easier on your body.... I guess there is a bit less grappling but still.....

    Could have been scored many ways:
    29-28 Katona
    30-27 Azure
    29-28 Azure

    Have to admit, I do enjoy listening to DC talk about the wrestling aspect the same way I do Joe with BJJ. I mean Joe is 10X better IMO, but I don't care for DC. for these new guys he's pretty knowledgeable on the fighters.

    The majority of the reason Khabib's striking works so well is the incredible amount of respect people give his take downs. I'm sure most would rather take a punch than a take down

    OK striking. I go more with what Thumper said on this one. He would get destroyed in a purely stand up fight.
