    where does ex machina belong on the best sci fi movies of all time rankings?

    in retrospect, did the fat boys ever become wack?

    Ex-Machina was a bit overrated for me. Doesn't compare to the classic movies about AI being dangerous like Terminator or The Matrix. Wasn't bad though
    And were the Fat Boys ever not wack?

    Is the Houston Rap Scene dead? I mean, other than Trae The Truth... you hear nothing. Shoot, the kids don't even know "who" Mike Jones...

    * Watching Shevchenko vs Carmouche got me thinking... since there wasn't a lot else going on at that time.

    When Carmouche was 3 years into her career, she managed to take the back of Ronda Rousey and almost win the Title. 6 years later, Carmouche is much more composed, technical and experienced as a fighter and she manages... nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    Are some people just better fighters as athletic wildmen rather than what we traditionally consider as having "good fighting skills?" Carmouche looks like she regressed despite her so-called improvements.

    Obviously, this trend isn't universal. But could this be more common among MMA fighters than we think?


    Sorry for not being able to think of a more succinct way to phrase this question. Feel free to cut it down if you're able.

    Why, when there's a fight like McGregor vs Diaz 1 at Welterweight, McGregor has the permission to pose with his Featherweight belt and fool around with it ? (I don't remember if in the second fight McGregor posed again with his belt in the tale of the tape - totally ridiculous by the way)
    same with DC vs Miocic, a HEAVYWEIGHT fight, DC poses with his LHW belt ?

    While on the topic of belts-how ugly do u think the new UFC strap is? I find it hideous. Though the chain link isnt much better, it isn’t trying too hard to be trendy.

    Is there any hope that we may one day not have to see these horrible pre fight pump up interviews with the fighters where they tell us ad nauseum how they’re “in the best shape of their life” “in the best training camp I’ve ever had,” and how they’re “the better overall fighter”, etc. I don’t see how this adds to the fights, no other sport does this. I really wish UFC forged a new path on this one. I know it’s not an easy fix, but nothing makes me hit the mute button quicker.

    Our poll is up for the day, asking if you think Daniel Cormier will fight again after he meets Stipe Miocic at UFC 241 this weekend.

    Our guest co-host will be announced soon, as Ant Walker will be covering UFC 241 open workouts for the site during showtime.

    I think we turned this bad boy into something manageable for the broadcast.

    My guess is if he wins, they throw him a Derrick Lewis type bone to headline NYE card and retire on the year's biggest night on his own terms. My best guess is the Overeem/Harris winner.

    I reckon they keep Ngannou away from him. My reasoning? They would like Ngannou to wear the strap and it woulnt be a good look for him to get wrestle-fucked and go 0-2 in title fights.

    Overeem/Harris are fighting on December 7th, so no chance the winner would take a turnaround of a week to fight on the "NYE" card that the UFC has. Meaning, the last UFC PPV of the year is UFC 245 on December 14th. The final UFC card of 2019 is UFC Fight Night South Korea on 12/21 and they wouldn't burn a title fight on that either.

    There just aren't a lot of contenders at HW and absolutely no one more deserving than Ngannou. The only other fight they could have there would be Jones, right?

    Seems DC is feeling good these days after his back surgery. Probably can’t pass up the chance at redemption against Jones and one last big payday.
