    He cheated in that fight illegal up kick that nearly knocked Edson out, if anything it shows how good Cerrone is since he finished him in the first without cheating.

    Are you a Brock fan? If so, I find it hilarious for you to get on the soap box and start chatting about cheating.

    that wasn't the question though. The OP brought up a fight, to display how good a fighter is for winning, when it turned out the main reason he won the fight was an illegal blow. Cerrone won without one

    Are we playing MMAth?

    Michael Johnson beat Barboza and Ferguson, but lost to khabib.

    Therefore tony loses to khabib.
    Except wait.. Tony’s finished tibau, while khabib only decisions him.

    So if my mma math checks out. Tony will finish khabib but only by a decision, except if it’s a Saturday.

    Doesn't have any input to stopping the sub. It happened in the first round and since that Barboza threw many things. This is after the kick from play by play:

    Barboza digs a left hook to the body of Ferguson, who answers with a cracking right hook. Another ripping left hook connects to Ferguson’s gut, then another. Ferguson dives for another leglock but comes up with nothing this time. Barboza ducks a wide right hand from Ferguson and dings the American’s body as he sidesteps away. Barboza gets a quick takedown and allows Ferguson to stand after only a few seconds on the mat. They’re down to the last 90 seconds of a frantic first round, and both men plant hard right hands on their opponent’s jaw. Barboza gets Ferguson staggering backward with a left hand to the temple, then sidesteps another rolling leglock attempt from the “TUF” winner. Ferguson doubles up on his jab, gets a spinning back-kick in the breadbasket. Ferguson has a kick caught but slugs Barboza with a right straight while hopping on one leg. Barboza ends the round with a spinning kick to Ferguson’s haunches.

    ROUND 2
    Ferguson is cut open in the first minute of the round, a slice leaking from his right brow down into his eye. Barboza is opened up, too, by an elbow which opens a gash on his forehead. Barboza catches a kick and takes Ferguson to the ground, where the action stalls and the fighters are brought back to their feet with 3:30 on the clock. Barboza sends a pair of hard rights down the middle, then whips around with a spinning kick and finds nothing as Ferguson ducks low. Ferguson lands a spinning elbow, though it’s partially blocked, then sprawls on shot from Barboza and snares the Brazilian in a D’arce choke. Barboza pushes away Ferguson’s hips, tries to escape, but the choke is tight and he’s forced to submit.

    So you can see its not like it happened straight after plus he got a point taken.

    This is sherdog. Half these idiots haven't even seen the fight. Anyone who has knows the elbow and cut is what changed the fight.

    I bet u havnt seen Michael Johnson vs Barboza. Michael Johnson moved forward the whole time and stood up with Barboza, and both were in Brazil. Shows u how underrated Michael Johnson is.

    This will get ignored because they don't want Tony to fight Khabib
