    Kelvin hurts him and he tries the takedown twice...ffs!

    MMA lads. There's nothing like it


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    That was fcuking incredible. That fifth round is one of the greatest MMA rounds I’ve seen in ages.

    What a fight!

    Goddard must have had a few quid on the fight going the distance.


    38-38 going into the 5th
    48-46 Israel

    Even the commissioners were on their feet clapping in the middle of the 5th after the scramble and the triangle attempt.

    It was Kelvins to win or lose in the last minute of the 4th. Why in the name of god did he go for the TD???


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    What! A! Fight!


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    Can't believe we still have Max v Dustin after that!

    It's definitely made up for the second fight

    You would think the next fight has to be epic as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,795 ✭✭✭dulux99


    Fair play to all of us who sat through the Alan Jouban fight to get to the Izzy v KG fight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,891 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    After the Lamas fight I said I would never bet against Max, and I have tonight the odds are too good (win by KO).

    If Max loses I hope they don't show Baby Bless


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    I just think Max's pressure and volume will be too much here!

    4th round stoppage

    i think max gets the stoppage late in the fight. paddy power has him 9/1 to win in the 4th.

    i cant take to kelvin dont know what it is. probably him with cejudos belt at the last fight was pure cringe. i think its an interesting match up but reckon the fight might be a snooze fest with israel grinding out a points win. either way i dont think either have what it takes to beat whittaker

    could i have been anymore wrong holy crap what a fight

    Dustin throwing huge bombs in round 1. Would worry he might blow himself out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,891 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    I think Max's cardio might win this fight..


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,588 ✭✭✭derfderf


    Max's chin is ridiculous.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    Max was seeing stars for most of that round. Dustin having zero problem finding Max's chin whenever he wants.


    Max needs to be smarter


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,891 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    Dustin cant keep that pace up, Max will take over I fear..

    think dustin laid it on too much in the first max finding his pace now


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,117 ✭✭✭tommyboy26


    the chin on max!


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,340 ✭✭✭✭Utopia Parkway


    Dustin has the power advantage but Max might win this on cardio alone but Dustin is hitting him pretty easily.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Looks like it could go the way of Poirier’s fight against Gaethje. Max won’t be able to take damage like that for 3 more rounds, don’t care how good his chin is.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    Dustin two rounds up.

    Now it's all about whether Dustin has done enough damage to negate the fact that he's going to start slowing down badly from here on in. He finished the last round with his hands in his hips


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,891 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    I hope so as I backed the KO... Its so difficult to call Max can just swamp you..


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,381 ✭✭✭Yurt2


    A real war. Two savages.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,047 ✭✭✭Jamiekelly


    Poirer looks to be fading. Throwing more wildly.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,891 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    Max's skull must be an inch thick...
