    The recent trend for grinders like Khabib and Usman as champions is draining as a fan. It’s pure pish to watch. Even Jones, who was a human highlight reel when he was tearing his way up the rankings, has became a bit of a grinder. It’s hugely effective, that can’t be denied - just have to hope there’s a further evolution to counteract it.

    Masvidal is a bad, bad, man. With a full camp I think he’d be much closer. His striking against Diaz was much slicker with combos etc...

    Holloway was robbed there. Cannot stand bad decisions like that

    I have more respect for Masvidal after that. 6 days notice, 5 rounds against that boring grappling machine.

    Usman is a phenomenal fighter though and the point he makes about him having to shift mentally for a new opponent at 6 days notice too shouldn't be overlooked.

    That was a massacre.

    Benavidez should just retire.

    Whittaker was busier and deserved the win, I do think there's a chance it was 2-2 going into the last. Might have been a different fight had Till checked a couple of kicks

    Still more to come from Till I reckon

    2 fights in 10 days and now fighting on the 15th.

    Hope they don’t try and push him to early or burn him out. Looks some talent.
