Some great fights last night.

I've noticed in recent months the amount of fighters promoting gambling is getting bigger and bigger, and I actually said it to my OH yesterday that I noticed a big push for this event, then the main event ends in a draw, some happy bookies out there today.

If he was gifted, he wouldn’t be getting hit so easily and losing rounds so regularly.

I’d be surprised if he walks away. Who knows

Neither is Kevin Lee. I think Tony only scrapped past him, also look flakey at time vrs Lando.
Exactly. It was a joke when Khabib won a belt against a non championship level fighter, but fine for Tony for some reason.

I was shocked at how well Moreno did.
I knew he was tough but that was about all he had going
for him I thought.

I remember when he lost to pantoja and pettis, didn't look great at all.
I really didn't think had that kind of performance in him.

What a great guy though and a class act! You'd have to root for him, never seen
a guy so humble and joyful after coming so close except maybe wonderboy.

Khabib won THE championship belt.
Tony won an interim. The different levels of are purely down to the difference in the best. Basically interims aren't taken seriously.

Fair point. It's a bit silly though. The only difference between the relevance of each fight was that they decided to strip Conor at point B, not point A. Both fights were supposed to be Tony vs Khabib, and Tony's injury was the more unfortunately timed one in the end.

I still think if they stripped Conor earlier, and Tony was promoted to full champ, he still wouldn't have received as many Khabib has.

I may have taken him up wrong, but was Dana basically saying getting rid of Mighty Mouse is what saved the flyweight division?

If Khabib beat Iaquinta for an interim nobody would mention Al not being champ level.

If the last round had kept the tempo of previous rounds it was definitely up there. It doesn't beat Joanna v Weili Zhang for me though.

Tony's a gas man, puts out a post that starts with no excuses then proceeds to make excuses, the main one being that the warm up time is to short since covid called charles a wet blanket too, his social media rants do him more harm than good.

He needs a proper coach and a proper team behind him by the looks of things, he's bragging about putting a team together in three weeks for the fight, nearly mike perry levels of prep.

They successfully robbed him in his last fight then gave him the boot. THey never valued him, which is fairly ****ty, given how excellent he is.
