Poll Question: Did Jorge Masvidal go too far in his post-fight celebration and comments?
It was well within the rules, he did nothing illegal that said, I still think it's a little distasteful and not a good display of character but I understand it...he is a cage fighter at the end of the day.
Question 6 - Yojimbo - After 239, Dana was quoted as saying he thinks Rockhold and Holm should look at retirement. Do you agree, or is Dana being too harsh?
Question 7 - @europe1 - Given how quickly Lineker was cut and then fell into ONE FC's grasp, do you think this switcheroo was pre-meditated somehow? Also how will murder-death-kill fare against ONE FC top-dogs like Bibiano or Belingon and Mighty Mouse?
Question 8 - Robbie - Two fighters missed weight for PFL this Thursday, and both fighters were cancelled. Zane Kamaka was thrown out of PFL altogether because it’s his second time heavy. Was this the right call, to cancel the fights and boot Kamaka?
Rockhold's time is over. He should retire and just go modelling. If he gets flattened by Bisping, flattened by Romero and flattened by Blachowicz then FFS just RETIRE and do not come back.
Holly Holm : I'd say also close to retirement. She does NOT have the killer instinct required. She could have and should have flattened Meisha Tate but instead, as in so many fights, she is far far far far too timid, concentrates on *not* engaging, trying *not* to lose, and by doing so, she in fact loses.
She has an awesome offensive high-kick but she justdoes not THROW IT often enough. She could have KO'd Nunes with taht kick but she didnt throw it, could have KO'd TAte but didnt throw it. Far too much defense-minded approach. Could have KO'd so many more and yet her "stay safe, stay safe" approach has actually been her DOWNFALL. just my view.
Oh, right so it's subjective
UFC Sacramento Who You Got:
Josh Emmett vs. Mirsad Bektic?
Urijah Faber vs. Ricky Simon?
Germaine de Randamie vs. Aspen Ladd?
Ricky Simon should win
GDR vs Ladd : that's tough to call. Ladd has not been under enough pressure to know how she copes and GDR fights too infrequently. Neither fighter attracts a following IMHO.
Emmett vs Bektic : haven't checked it out to be honest so no view right now.
Both went too far and people who behave this way should be banned from the sport and pay a large fine.
I'm gonna go with Bektic for the win against Emmett. Bektic is 6-1 in his UFC career and so I think that's a good enough recent run to get the W vs Emmett.
I'm fine with both the celebration and the comments. When it comes to combat fighting, I prefer my animosity to be genuine vs manufactured.
It's cage fighting. Askren talked shit and couldn't back it up
I think mocking somene who could be seriously injured or dead is bad taste. Just personal preference. I wouldn't want someone to fake concern either mind. It is what it is.
He said it best - why is it okay to cross lines and go over board but suddenly everyone wants to ask him to be nicer after he had to endure bullshit trash talk.
If you're okay with prefight trash talk that crosses the line (family, religion, ethnicity) then you cannot complain if it comes around after the fight.
