    Big shots ends it, Justin is tough but he's like a Zombie walking punchbag.

    Fair play Poirier. Could barely walk and took Gaethje out.

    When his chin goes he’s going to have a short career.

    He already sounds a bit punch drunk when he speaks. I don't know why he just don't use his wrestling, defending with your face is rarely a good idea.

    He comes across as an utter * to be honest. Talking about wanting to be known as the ‘most violent fighter’ rather than being a champion.

    How many interviews have you watched with him? I think he actually comes across really well most of the time and is very likeable (for an American). Yeah, when he fought Eddie and they were coming out with the most violent fighter pish it was a bit cringey but Gaethje brings it every single time. His 3 UFC fights were FOTN and one was also FOTY

    I tend to find most Americans obnoxious and slightly nauseating. not necessary fighters in general but its Just a personal opinion. with regards to what i wrote, Id much rather listen to Gaethje (who i also think was a great couch on tuf) than someone like tyron woodley, colby or tony ferguson. they are a million times more cringey than Gaethje

    No one should denying he has exciting fights.

    Listening to a grown man talking about wanting to be known as the most violent fighter was cringeworthy. It’s the type of * a 14 year old would hotbed out with.

    Thought Gaethje had the fight in the bag with the affect those leg kicks were having on Poirier in the first few rounds, thought it was only a matter of time before he got the stoppage.

    Great stuff from Poirier to get the finish, wouldn’t mind seeing him vs Khabib but think he’ll have one more fight before he gets the chance at Khabib.

    majority of the roster come out with pure cringey * when interviewed, not that that makes it more palatable. They just doing whatever they can to sell themselves for a better payday. Gaethje himself said last week he has about 5-6 more fights at most, he understands his place in the division. You and I know his fight style will hit a brick wall when facing the very top guys in the division but by * its entertaining.

    I think Khabib would dominate Poirier and beat him to a pulp. Two fighters I don't want to see Khabib fight are Poirier or Eddie Alvarez both would be easy for Khabib.

    Perry has went from being the guy Till chased to an alsoran after this fight IMO.

    Till is a fight from a Title shot, Perry is a fight from being a nobody.

    Should be a cracking fight.

    Can see Yancy winning that.

    Lee really should just move up in weight.

    He looks completely * at the weigh ins even when he’s missing weight.
