    What the fuck is going on? MM got stiffened and Eddie Alvarez just got Dq’d is it time to end the narrative that the UFC is the top mma organization?

    More like 0-1-1. Eddie got a very questionable DQ call.

    All their fighters looked way bigger also.
    That thing about them not having weight cutting is a lie

    Does the UFC have ALL the best fighters?
    No
    Are there great fighters in other organizations who can compete with the best the UFC has to offer?
    Yes
    But anyone who believes that the UFC doesn't have the best and most talented overall roster compared to other organizations is an imbecile and should be ignored

    If you don't follow ONE you aren't a fan of MMA.

    You realize MM got a win before that fight via guillotine choke in One right?

    Ufc clearly has the best overall talent but it’s stupid to say that there’s not absolutely elite competition at the top of some other orgs.

    Knee to a grounded opponent gets a KO, punches behind the ear get a DQ.

    “Look, we saw these guys slipping(Scratches nose). We have the best scouts in the world and they knew DJ and Eddie were done as top guys! We’ve been doing for over two decades. You saw what happened. Some other organization threw money at them and they got lost!”

    Aljo doesn't know how to feel about those last 2 fights in succession.

    The Alvarez DQ was a horrible call. As for DJ; he got up pretty quick from a knee to a downed opponent and didn't cry after the fact. Weird how it hurt Aljo so much worse. Especially considering DJ had to take the follow up shots.

    MM has over 30 fights. It is a lot of wear and tear for a technical division. All the little guys are proficient in various aspects of MMA. MM also fights at a small weight. Under 155 guys tend to begin to fade once they hit closer to mid 30s? I am trying to think of a respectable older champion that is from the lighter weights? I remember guys like Gomi and BJ all faded when they hit early 30s.
    On a side note, I had this discussion with people who ask if they are too old to start MMA at 30. At a lighter weight, I think it is much harder. I was just talking to a friend and I think someone like TJ Dillashaw cannot make a comeback. I might be eating crow soon.
