I hope Eddie wins though.
Even though Eddie gets dropped a lot, he always seems to come back and make a war out of it, eventually winning most of the time.

I'm not so sure about cowboy. not that he can't take a punch but if he gets dropped I'm not so sure he'll just get up and keep battling the way Eddie does.

There are two ways of exerting one's strength: one is pushing down, the other is pulling up.

Holly Holm is no longer a pure striker. She is a mixed martial artist. Striking did not beat grappling. A more complete fighter beat a less complete fighter.

Maybe I should clarify that statement, it was a little broad.

I, personally, think that the rule is bullshit. He was standing up, and then instantly went straight down and was caught. It was completely unintentional.

Also, it was a split decision, and even, Varner looked like he thought he should've lost.

Jedrzejczyk, how could you not?

Man, Eddie showed the best footwork in MMA when he was switching stances to protect his lead leg from taking a bigger beating after Cerrone beat him to the angles and battered him with leg kicks and knees inside the clinch.

Eddie had nothing except for one flurry that Cerrone stood upright through and shook off and better boxing in this fight.

I may never win the mundials, but I will never be afraid to step onto the mats.
