    Ya, that was a great card. Nate looked fantastic. Respect to Pettis for staying in that phone booth and just slugging it out. Even getting back on top after what looked like him getting dropped and finished.

    Some of those exchanges with Paulo and Yoel were a blast to watch ... Paulo looks like a Superhero ... seeing him and Romero in there gave me some real body shame for a little bit ... Buuut then I watched DC ... Haha

    Cormier was definitely winning ... I think he could get it back if they ran it back one more time.

    That was crazy. The last 3 fights were all fantastic. Don't know what Cormier was thinking except 2 things. 1)i can win the exact same way again because I am me, or 2)dc/stipe 3 makes me millions and millions
    Good card. Glad Nate is back, hope UFC actually markets him now. A Masvidal/Diaz fight would be electric. Everyone talking about how amazing Costa/Romero was but to me that main card was even better. You rarely ever see two heavyweights land shots like that and still fight at such a fast pace into the championship rounds. DC admitted he didn't follow the gameplan and wrestle but it's hard to blame him. He was lighting Stipe up those first 2 and half rounds and would have probably went on to win against most other heavyweights. Respect to stipe for taking those shots and finding that body shot. That changed the entire fight. Tough to say what DC does now, If i was him i might hang it up. Don't see the point of fighting jones unless it's at heavyweight. I guess he could do a triology with Stipe and get one last pay day but i think he loses that again.

    Think Cormier is going to win again. Think nate is going to beat Pettis, even with the weed smoking. And I think Romero Costa will be the fight of the night if it doesn't end in 2 minutes.

    Man, Whitaker is one of the most likable guys on the roster.

    Cormier recently said he represents everything a Champion should, and it's hard to disagree.

    This is a fight to look forward to. Curious to see how they fill out the card.
    I hope Dana tries to make it legendary, and not just "here is an awesome fight and a bunch of aussies, and kiwis for the rest of the card" . The time difference will mess with the ppv money.

    Two fighters it is really hard to bet against. I think I like Whitaker right now. 2 for 2 against Romero is a pretty good resume.

    Ya, Pettis is 4-6 over his last 10, and fighting a non-ranked Nate. I am really curious to know what a win over Nate is worth days, as far as rankings go.
    It's a weird situation. Nate is the lesser of two brothers, who is famous for winning and losing to Conor. Never a champion,

    this is the fight my dad is most excited for, i don't know how good nate is going to look after so long off. if nate wins, i think nate/conor happens again. i don't see how a win here helps pettis move up, and a loss will really hurt.

    Diaz vs Pettis is actually happening it looks like! I figured one might pull out somewhere along the line. Nobody in UFC History has more "Fight of the Night" Bonuses than Nate Diaz, so I think it's going to be epic. Can't believe they've never fought before this.

    This is pretty incredible. And this is not staged. Guy is legit.
    Awesome story. Reminds me of Baxter "One Armed Bandit" Humby, another one armed Canadian Kick Boxer from a while back. Dude has some awesome highlights.
