I have no idea what Gustafsson was doing. Hit Smith's body in round three, winds him, and then goes for a bodylock...
That was like time went in slow-motion. I think Ray might well get cut from the UFC now.
Ray and Manuwa knocked the * out.
That’s Gus retired now too, probably the right time, never gonna beat Jones or Cormier and now there’s a wave of other young guys coming through
Manuwa needs to quit he been KOed in 3 out of his last 4 fights and quite badly as well. His chin has gone and he won't have much health if he carries on.
Think Gus will be back, it’s time for him to take a time out and heal up.
Jesus that’s one of the worst I’ve seen.
Anthony Smith proving he’s the real deal. Him and Rockhold would be great.
Great card this weekend.
I am all over Khabib/Poirier!
Cejudo is so cringe. Reckon he gets beat.
Ferguson v Cowboy should be a cracker tomorrow. Had a look at the odds for other fights and Jimmie Rivera at 5/2 jumped out at me, might be worth a punt (watch him get stopped in the first now!)
BT Sport * off every UK MMA fan then
Brutal from BT.
BT Sport box office
* are they thinking? They'll end up losing money out of it and no doubt a lot of favour with the fans which you can already see on Twitter. I'd understand it if it was McGregor v Khabib rematch but Jones v Santos, madness.
It'll never work anyway. UFC 235 with Jon Jones in March ony had 59,000 viewers in the UK - how many are going to pay for it 10% if they are lucky, about 6,000 people - that money should be peanuts to BT.
Only hope of it working would be if they only did McGregor fights as his fights get like 300K+ viewers but non McGregor ones are mostly only 20-40k or 40k-60k if its a big show with a lot of top people, surely nowhere near enough to charge extra for.
Maybe using this as a test to see how many actually buy it as an indicator to if they should charge for McGregor in future?
Why not just charge advertisers more?
Seriously what a dumb move in a bid to try and gain what? Barely a million quid?
Aye, was just checking. They only have like 13 main UFC's per year, if BT manage to have 10,000 buys for each one at £10 it's only £1.3million per year.
They pay £295million per year to show the EPL, £9.3million per match.
Silly BT * nobody will be buying that hopefully they learn a lesson. Really looking forward to Cowboy vs Tony later. Hope Cejudo gets beat he's a * idiot of a boy.
