    I'd favor Askren to beat Colby, yes. So my MMAth equation says Askren's a bigger threat.

    Should we ask Ant it was painful for him to see his favorite fighter get dominated?

    Eh, I don't like that answer. If Herb is so good, why does he make so many grievous mistakes? How do you allow Conor to make 5 fouls and not take a single point? His awful consistency is a real reason to demote him as one of the top refs.

    Not to mention that the Georgi-Timur brawl was basically birthed because of his incompetence.

    I had to give it up to Askren for keeping the "I hate you, Dana" gimmick going even in the face of a bunch of boos and a controversial stoppage.

    He's the bully you hate and want to get better to beat him, but not beat him up.

    I mean if we’re just taking snapshots of guys’ careers then no. Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way.

    You can't spell an insult about intelligence wrong while insulting people about intelligence.

    Too bad he couldn't change his name and start a new record so casuals couldn't further bash him for his record when his accomplishments were really good.

    Conor-Tony. With that payday does that make it up to Tony and ease the succession crisis at LW?

    So shitty lol

    I'm just being silly because 90% of MMA fans don't actually remember fights and just read results.

    Someone can beat the shit out of someone for 3 mins and if they get caught and knocked out and it's in the first, most "fans" just bring up the result of first round KO and that's it. They act like the details of the fight don't matter, but they mean everything.

    Despite his recent history nothing will take away his accomplishments during his prime years.
