    He was like a ginger Sean O'Malley


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,710 ✭✭✭✭Paully D


    Surprised Formiga was underdog there.

    He surely gets the next shot at Cejudo? Although Henry has improved an awful lot since they last fought and he still beat him comfortably back then so who knows how competitive that one will be.

    Cold, Macdessi didn't even get to talk to Cormier........

    Hope Blaydes wrecks Willis.

    The main card has been complete scutter.

    Curtis Blaydes really sucks the life out of the arena with that fight. No killer instinct whatsoever because Ngannou knocked that out of him and he has the gall to start trash talking after the fight is over. I highly doubt he'll be getting a title shot anytime soon after that farce.

    WTF did you watch?

    He just mauled the #10 ranked fighter after a week of Willis talking absolute ****e. Cracked him and dropped him on his arse and beat him up on the ground.

    There are only 4 people ranked ahead of him and he could beat any of the on any gven night, including Francis.

    Early first round KO for Thompson incoming.

    RIP Showtime.

    Hope to hell this fight saves it and isn't a chess match
    I predict booing

    It's either a quick KO or two lads bouncing back and forth pawing out jabs and waiting for the other one to commit.

    Big call when nobody has gotten Pettis outa there in under 10 mins

    When was the last time he fought a substantially bigger man who can kock people out as quickly as Thomspon can?


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,848 ✭✭✭✭mailburner


    I'd love to see Pettis win this even though I like both


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,386 ✭✭✭Still Ill


    The Cookie Monster in Pettis' corner?

    Pettis is durable though

    Wb due a finish to be fair to him
    This probably won't be going the distance the way these two are going at it


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,383 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Jesus what a KO. Two of the top 5 at 170 absolutely starched in the space of 7 days.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,683 ✭✭✭Subcomandante Marcos


    O.M.G.

    Wow.

    Pettis was getting tooled up in there and apart from the leg kicks had scarcely landed a shot of note all fight.

    The finish came out of absolutely nowhere.

    Wonderboy was a decent enough matchup for him stylistically, but I think he’ll end up getting ragdolled against a strong wrestler or badly KO’d against a heavy striker if he stays at 170.

    Fights against the likes of RDA at 170 wouldn't be terrible for him.

    Fights against Usman, Woodley, those sorts of big, strong, heavy wrestling game 170ers are an absolute nightmere for him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,848 ✭✭✭✭mailburner


    Needs to stay away from 170 unless he hand picks a few fights
    I think he'll take on the winner of next week's main (barboza again)

    Either would make a great main though


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,733 ✭✭✭ASOT


    What a KO that was my God. Decent pre lims, main card was shocking.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,676 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    Beaming for Pettis, what a win!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,730 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    I love when 2 fighters I like get matched up like Pettis and Wonderboy

    I hate seeing one of them dribbled on the canvas during the fight though, absolutely ko’d

    Pettis to pop in 3, 2, 1...?

    Wonderboy's low hands always a risk but Pettis KOing a much bigger man stiff like that is shocking.
