    Yeah, idk whats going on. Now he tweeted out a pic of him on a plane, and NYC press conference is in 2 days. Maybe no comment from UFC cause they want it to be a surprise?

    Yep. Both of them are PISSED at Barry right now. Not as pissed as when he recommended Ronda at -1200 vs Holly, but still pretty steamed.

    Barry is currently trying to pacify them by giving them free losers...err...picks from the next card but that's just making them more angry.

    thoughts on the jones-cormier line
    cormier currently +200 on some euro bookie

    I could see the lines being closer this time due to jones lack luster performance against osp
    talk about this one headlining ufc 200

    I think Cormier has value but a couple things to consider in my opinion.

    Greg Jackson said that the powerlifting was a problem and affected Jones' cardio, will he change his routine?

    Will Cormier be fully fit if the fight is indeed at UFC 200? Initial reports said that he will be out until August, is he being rushed back because of the Conor situation?

    I thought that also, GSP talked years ago about putting on muscle to fight anderson, saying that the adjustments to your timing and pacing are going to take a lot of getting used too, so he wanted to put on the muscle slowly unlike jones. Also rogan i think it was, was saying in the walkouts last weekend that's the best jon we've seen physically which is true I guess in terms of looks but it didn't seem to translate that well into his grappling.
    on paper he should of been able to use his grappling more effectively especially with this new "strength" jones is on about, and after easily handling DC's wrestling many thought a sub on osp was very possible. but in my opinion he looked much better against cormier, more of a fighters physique.

    JDS is another example of this, he seems to of lost a bit of muscle mass which I think was a great career decision. the last few years JDS looked to big and plodding compared to his road to the title.

    I think Jones performance had more to do with his layoff, being prepared for DC and a lose-lose situation against OSP.
    Jones does not care much about excitment. He just win fights. In a way he is like GSP.
    GOAT material but he is not risking his record against a no-name dangerous opponent like OSP.

    One thing I was surprised was with his strenght. He always was strong but I dont remember Jones slamming guys like he did a couple of times with OSP (who is a big LHW).
    Maybe my memory is failing but didnt he pick OSP on his shoulders, carried to the center of the octagon and slam the shit out of him?
     
  12. 0.75u on Matt Brown wins in Round 3 @ 17.00
    It's a long shot but if Maia fails to get the takedown in the later rounds Brown will certainly turn up the heat.

    It was -175 vs -160 when I bet it. Not a huge difference but I just rolled the dice on the tiny bit less juice and took Cyborg rd 1.
