    Lawler is a legend but he should retire man. Hasn’t been the same since the war with Rory.

    Colby is legit. People underrate him because of his patter but he’s some fighter.

    Can’t see anyone in the division stopping Usman though.

    What a terrible final 2 rounds.

    Aye, Colvington kept up a pretty scary pace there.

    I know it’s partially a ‘work’ but by * he is an annoying * that needs slept.

    Definitely. Can’t stand the guy.

    Was hoping Lawler would be the guy to do it but he looks finished.

    I think Lawlers tactics were all wrong but 600 strikes and 20 takedowns is next level offence in an MMA fight.

    Guy is the real deal, as hard as that is to admit.

    Colby absolutely smothered Lawler, never gave him a moment to set himself, and had him afraid of the takedowns from the first round. Not the most exciting thing to watch, but he is relentless and highly effective.

    Didn’t realise this was at a weird time. I’d love to see Marty ragdoll Colby. Or Masvidal v Colby.

    What was the Matt Hughes stuff all about? Was Covington just trying to get the crowd to boo him more or what?

    Hughes has been done off his missus and brother for assaults/aggressive behaviour. He’s a bit of a * himself but at least he has an excuse.

    That was just a brutal nose break! Didn't even see it happening. He basically went straight for the takedown (EDIT after the knee to the nose) and ended up in a guillotine and the blood was just gushing out of his crushed head.. Not for the faint-hearted.

    Really think his fightin career is basically over, he's never going to screw the nut on.
