    "Nobody was expecting this!" - Rogan

    It was impressive how easily Carmont manhandled Costa, but who didn't expect him to shoot the entire time? I have no idea what Rogan was expecting.

    Were you surprised by Carmont's game plan? Where does this put both fighters? I wouldn't mind seeing either Costa or Carmont against Bisping or Rockhold.

    He did but he was really really high. So it had an amnesiac effect on him.

    I thought the exact same thing when I heard Joe say that...anyone who has seen Carmont fight knew this was coming.

    Yeah, that's Carmont's game. I have no idea what Joe was talking about.

    He's big and black.

    Obviously he's a killer

    I definitely don't ever remember Carmont employing a gameplan like that before.

    It was definitely a smart plan against a high level boxer like Costa. On the other hand, it makes for a pretty unentertaining fight so that's the tradeoff.

    It's unfortunate because it really made both fighters look bad, especially Philippou, who is really talented albeit one dimensional.

    Rogan's definitely not on his A game tonight, that's for sure. Apparently Khabib was tired after the first round to him too.

    it's not like carmont aggressively went for takedowns for 15 minutes against larkin, camozzi, vemola, or cedenblad or anything like that.
