    With all the hype surrounding Ufc 182 do you believe it lived up to it?

    I personally say no.

    Glad it's over though. hindsights a bitch but I really wish the put Gus back in. At least that hype is justified with their prior fight.

    Fuck no. I want my money back. And Myles Jury owes me some money too.

    It did for me.

    This is pretty much what I expected.

    A close fight with Jones clearly being the winner

    People will say it was boring, the majority of them are Jones haters. That was a dogfight. First 4 rounds were awesome.

    Yes.

    IMO just the last round sucked and especially the first two were great.

    No. Thankfully, I didn't pay $50 for it. Ha.

    It was impossible to live up to the hype.

    I enjoyed rounds 1 through 4, 5 not so much.

    I was mildly disappointed. They seemed pretty evenly matched at first, but DC ran out of steam.

    Main was pretty good, but overall it was bad.

    No. DC didn't let his hands go. Way too much clinching without any strikes being thrown.

    I thought I'd be way more butt hurt if Jones won, but I'm not for some reason. Yeah, I guess it lived up to the hype. I got to see what would happen if they squared off, and that's all I wanted to see.

    Yes it was IMO.

    I expected to see DC gassing in 2 rounds and getting a beating but he stood and put a close fight. You cant ask 2 guys to go on that r1 pace for 25 minuts.

    Most hyped UFC fight in a long time, that they gave a complete shit undercard and was a 25 min hug fest? Fuck the UFC. Happy streamer here.

    Rounds 1-3 were pretty close. I mean I for sure 1 & 3 to Jones, but they weren't one sided by any means.

    At least 1 of those 4 rounds was pretty close.

    Nope. Nothing but decisions. Other than Cerrone making Jury into his redheaded stepchild, I regret getting the PPV.
