I don't see anyone beating Dillashaw anytime soon.

What a clinic. He's unreal.

I wonder if the UFC thought this through? They are trying to build up that PPV next weekend, but Barao/Dillashaw probably would've sold more.

I think Cruz has a legitimate shot. He basically fights very similar to Dillashaw, but with a significant reach advantage. I also think he's a better wrestler too.

TJ Dillisaw, despite a raised stock after last night isn't close to being the star and ppv Queen Ronda Rousey is.

Cruz lacks power and can't hit a combo. Plus he's had too many injuries the past few years. That division has evolved and he's missed the boat.

Jessamyn Duke getting a loss in that fight is everything I hate about MMA. No fault to the judges, it's the flaw in the system... maybe they could have called that a 10-8 round but I personally hate calling that and odds are 3 judges would rule that would be impossible to begin with

You know whats going to happen but very little anyone can do about it, this really needs to be fixed

Perhaps that is true, but are people really looking forward to this card? I watch pretty much all of them, and that card looks really underwhelming to me. I mean a pair of TUF finales, which are fine and maybe good fights I guess, and then the Nogueira/Struve fight might be good.

Coming off the last couple months where you had the Aldo/MacGregor which turned into Mendes of course and MacDonald/Lawler and prior to that Werdum/Velasquez though its hard to get too excited about Rousey fighting some tomato can #7 fighter. Not worth my $60, I can say that for sure.

Just a case where Phillips won the first two rounds, maybe not as much as Joe Rogan was calling but I doubt anyone would strongly disagree (maybe other would have it 1-1) but once the 3rd started Duke pretty much steamed rolled her and not only broke Phillips but easily appeared to be the better fighter.

The technique that Rogan was criticizing Duke for and rally behind Phillips in his call was the exact technique Duke used to break Phillips

If the fight went another round or even 30 seconds there is zero doubt that Duke would have finished Phillips very easily... Phillips had no fight and I'm not sure if she even threw 5 strikes in the 3rd (I assumed she did but it appeared that one sided)

Just a case where rounds 1 and 2 decide the winner of the fight and the 3rd round showed who the better fighter was and who won the fight... but scroecard wise tells a different story. Judges are not wrong as I would have no issues how any judge would score that fight

Phillips couldn't even do a proper post fight interview or even cheer a victory because she was so defeated (drain dead)

Being Duke's 3rd loss in a row now there's a good chance that Duke can be cut loose by the UFC

Unconfirmed but looks like UFC 194 may be in Calgary, with Lawler and Condit fighting for the Welterweight title:

^^^, it was reported a few days ago on here as well (about 15 posts up).

That would be one hell of a fight.

Yeah but fairly or not PPV's are usually bought based on their main event and star power of that fight. Don't think Betch Correia is a tomato can either.

The two Brazil TUF fights are on the card but thankfully they offset that by making it a 7 fight main card. Big Nog vs Struve I'm really excited for and despite the game being by both guys it'll be fun to see lil Nog and Shogun go at it.

Bingo Silva and Sao Palelei will be fun too.
