    I'm not surprised (motherfuckers) everyone's so obsessed with Conor's latest expected win..

    Just watched Ferreira's performance against Pettis and it was quite impressive.. Unorthodox standing, but effective and relentless. He has great cardio and seems to be the new king in the grappling department.

    Pettis is no newbie in that regard, but he was schooled and neck crancked.. Jeez.. Can't wait for Ferreira to face the big dogs. Him and Khabib may be VIRTUALLY identical. Intersting match up

    He looked pretty good. I wouldn’t crown him king of the division just yet.
    Pettis was getting held in some bad positions pretty easily

    Islam is a great option if Diego can turn around quick.

    If not, the Hooker/Felder winner, or the Lee/Bronx winner would make sense. 155 is looking great for 2020.

    Diego is a problem in that division. I would love to see him fight Islam.

    Yes, Diego was the best thing that happened yesterday. There is many great match up for him.
    BTW, he is the same age than Cerrone ;)

    I’m not that familiar with him so I was surprised to see him matched up with Pettis, and how bad he ripped Pettis up.

    That was some brutal GNP. Holy shit.

    Don’t know much about Dober besides the weird memes I see on here.

    It's okay we have the US government for that.

    CDF has been on an incredible streak. He has won as an underdog 4 times (out of 6 total) since his last loss. The highlight is still his win over Taisimov, but tapping Pettis is pretty fuckin cool.

    I did not expect CDF to become this good. I wrote him off after his two losses. When I saw him outwork OAM, I knew I could've been wrong. By the time he took out Khabilov, I was a believer. After that, I was expecting him to bully Taisimov on the feet.

    Really happy to see Ferreira get the finish. Curious to see who he fights next, hopefully a top 5-10.

    He has looked great but his window is small. He’s already 35

    Diego’s ground game is tighter than a ducks asshole, and thats water tight. His position battles were flawless on the mats. I wanna see him fight Islam next. I know Islam just neutralized Ramos’s stellar BJJ game but Diego’s looks better in the cage.

    Also, Diego was great at closing distance and his cardio did not seem as much affected as Pettis'. And he was the one trying to engage the grappling, which in my eyes is more tiring
