I agree about the interview but Woodley was exactly the same with the Black Lives Matter shit during the press conference a few days ago so was great to see him get his ass handed to him.  It wouldn't surprise me if Dana asked Woodley to behave like that to hype up the fight. I could of sworn Woodley gave out about Black Lives Matter a few years ago.

I think the Usman defat changed him I reckon he's done now. Yeah the Russian fella looked great most likely a future champion.

I was expecting a closer fight for the main card but Adesanya made it look easy against Costa.

I can't believe McGregor is still calling to fight Diego Sanchez in 2020, even if Cowboy was a bit of a gimme fight I can't see the UFC paying him millions just for fighting Diego Sanchez.

I imagine the Pacquiao fight will happen, they both make bank and everyone wins except McGregor's brain cells  :laugh:.

Hes calling for a Porier non UFC fight exhibition bout for charity!
All the shit slinging is so old and boring. They will all work it out as usual both feeling they are the big boss again.
Do ye think Jones goes to fight Jan B at light heavyweight?

Adesanya is something to behold though there seems to be evidence he's no stranger to 'artificial help'. That said, one look at Costa and you'd say the playing field was even. I would love to know how this USADA thing works. Are they over in deep Khazakstan keeping an eye on the likes of Khabib year round in a country absolutely notorious for doping issues. Brazil is another destination where I'd wonder if we're getting the full story all the time with these tests they conduct. Maybe I'm wrong but there just seems to much money on the line and prestige too for no fiddling to be going on on a grand scale.

I think we all knew Israel was going to beat Costa. Costa has only really had one challenge so far in Yoel and that fight could have went either way and Israel spent 5 rounds running away from Yoel. Not taking anything away from Israel he is a great fighter but he's even more unlikable than McGregor. It would be so good to see Whittaker come back and win the title back from him. If the the killer Gorilla gets the title shot I can't see him beating Israel.

Costa is the most tested fighter in USADA history he was even tested the week before the fight.

As for Israel what was going on with his tits that picture looks fucked up and definitely looks very suspicious.

Too easy to throw around the doping allegation, I always say I won't do it and yet I do. A lazy approach. Some lads are simply supernaturally big, other lads definitely need a lot of help. Costa looks unusual and I watched Firas Zahibi saying he def thought Costa was up to something. Then again, you could easily compare the build of his own great fighter GSP and start applying the same speculation. Adesanya on the other hand simply looks like he hardly breaks a sweat. Now, he is world class. An unbelievably classy fighter. The tit thing and his very impressive engine raises questions though.

When I lived in Canada I was good friends with a lad who was involved with training pro boxers both in the US and Canada. He was mates with people that were close to GSP who did say that he was up to something and I believe that is who Nick Diaz was always referring to when he use to go on his rants about steroids. I hate even saying that because GSP is my all time favourite I have heard nothing but good things about him and me personally I have no issues with steroids. I would love if they all were allowed to take them it would make things even more interesting than they already are.

Costa I think is just a specimen I don't think he's up to anything. I started to like him over the last while but he was so disappointing on Saturday.

The Israel tit is horrible to look it, it almost looks like a cancerous growth.

I just assume they're all on something tbh, obviously they're all hugely gifted athletes too but at the end of the day they're only human, think of the intense training camps these guys do everyday for 10 weeks before a fight, they'd need help just to get through them.

It's not just in MMA either, it's in all sports imo.

Some great knockouts in the UFC last night.

Bellator was fairly boring.

Disappointing KSW main event.

Great night as usual from BKFC it's definitely the most exciting promotion to watch.
