    I respect the honesty. If you're a classy guy, show it and be it. Personally, I prefer those characters. Nothing worse than a shitty, forced trash talk. Good luck to both of them guys, still rooting for Max, though.

    While I agree us hardcore fans would much rather the old days and I also believe the sport has lost a lot of appeal. A company must change with the times and unfortunately with attention spans dwindling these days it takes a different approach to garner long term interest with the incoming fan base. It's been stated many times how quickly a fighter is dismissed after a loss.
    Back in the day fighters weren't held to such high short term standards. Their careers were judged as a whole not by yesterday's tweet.

    Hendriks being KOd by former gay porn star was pretty refreshing as well, lol.

    The difference in personalities is what makes this sport more exciting. I wouldnt want everyone acting the same.

    It's for sure a breath of fresh air after the whole UFC 229 incidents. Solid card, I'd say does ballpark of 300k-350k buys

    Agreed.
    People are way too fast to laud the next guy "GOAT" when they barely got a belt. then he loses, they jump to the next guy.
    A career was built, not fast-tracked because the fighter had a big mouth.

    Yes! This is good to see...two guys willing to go to war but know in the end thery re just two men trying to provide for their families..some real true martial artist shit being displayed here ..

    Nothing wrong with wanting to fight the best when there at their best health wise..hats off to Ortega for that ..if he wins he will know he earned it

    But at the end of the day

    IT IS WHAT IT IS

    BLESSED ERA LETS GO

    Holloway is too much for Tcity

    Ehh, no. She said she's going to win this belt and then move back down to win the 115 belt to prove she's the WMMA GOAT.
