Brock Lesnar does nothing for me. I don't understand the fanfare for someone who is so obviously roided out of his mind.

Roided out and doesn't know how to fight. Was scared shitless to exchange but good for him for tackling and holding Hunt down.

He's a wrestler, not a fighter.

Someone slugging it out and kicking, etc...is more fun to watch.

But he's a huge name.

Also, I'm not sure he is on anything...maybe at one time he was but there is a lot of drug testing in wwe and he has never been caught and many other of their stars have.

And clearly the UFC drug testing program is legit with the Jon Jones result. Last night would've went over a lot better if Jones/DC is the headliner and everything else stays the same.

Incredibly underwhelming all things considered. Felt more like a regular season game or a pro-am instead of a Super Bowl or Major. The hype was there though so I'm sure financially it was a huge success.


An important late in the regular season game but I agree. Deepest card they probably have ever put together but missing that electric main event. Plus all the momentum stopped with DC/Silva.

If I had to rank 2016's PPV's so far I'd go

1. UFC 199 - Bisping/Rochold
2. UFC 196 - McGregor/Diaz
3. UFC 198 - Werdum/Miocic
4. UFC 195 - Lawler/Condit
5. UFC 200 - Tate/Nunes
6. UFC 197 - Jones/OSP

To be fair I think they've done a tremendous job putting great PPV's together this year and late last year. Can't always guarantee exciting results but there hasn't been one I haven't been excited for in a while. Until 201 of course but I'm lower on Tyron Woodley than some people.

That would be great. WME has some kind of deal with Under Armor. I did like the addition of colors to the shorts on Saturday.

Just as I said... Lesnar is dirty as they come. He failed a drug test 11 days before the event. Shocker of the century.

BTW just a joke that they grandfathered him in on a technicality and he got paid 5+ mil to do roids and put on that shitshow. Scared to fight Hunt without the roids.

Not going to condone it, but with the way testing is nowadays, I'll be less and less shocked to see more guys failing. It's probably the toughest sport to compete in physically - and the body just isn't going to be able to heal itself the way it should with the way these guys train without some sort of help. 

 

Obviously there are guys with just freak genetics, but to think someone can look like Brock Lesnar without taking something is just naive. He can sell whatever BS he wants, but anyone who isn't foolish shouldn't buy it. 

 

He's a pretty shitty fighter unless he can get on top and just pound on you. He's wrecked by guys like Overeem, Cain, Dos Santos, maybe even Stipe.

Conor wins one of the best big time fights in the sports history. Showed the heart of a champion, almost finished in the third. Lived up to the hype big time. Something tells me this trilogy will be coming to a PPV near you soon.

As great as Conor is at featherweight. I think the fact that it takes everything he has to beat a mid-level journeyman at welterweight kind of dashes any hopes he may have had at competing for a championship in three weight divisions.
