    This starts at 4pm which isn't bad for a Saturday, only 11 fairly average fights though. Usually cards like this ended up being better than they look on paper.

    Jotko handed out beatdown there, this has been a great little card

    The crowd is very dead. You can hear a pin drop when the guys come out

    That's the Russians for you, might get a bit of life in the main event.

    That was great!

    They both were swinging! At least the crowd livened up a bit too!

    What are the actual odds on an ezekiel choke finish?!!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,501 ✭✭✭The White Feather


    Loved those knees from Overeem!!

    Taught Goddard could have stopped that sooner, that knee was vicious.


  • Registered Users Posts: 61 ✭✭Perry12


    That was a rope a dope by Overeem


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,649 ✭✭✭Whelo79


    They was an enjoyable card to watch overall. I thought the co-main was a great battle and Overeem looked very composed and took the win well. Those knees were tasty!

    His stomach is going to be sore today though, Oleinik was absolutely laying into him with body shots at times

    I really enjoyed Makhachev - Tsarukyan, a great evenly matached high level wrestling fight, it's been a while since I saw one like that


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 12,713 Mod ✭✭✭✭riffmongous


    Also did anyone else think Hardy was way too quick with the interviews, like immediately after the decision.

    Amazing co-main, rare to see two fighters so incredibly evenly matched on the exact same skillset.

    Main was good too. Overeem ate some serious body shots but you could tell he was lining up those knees from the get go and was willing to eat the punishment to that end. The actual finishing knees were brutal but incredibly well executed.
