Which colour guy do you prefer out of curiosity?
Rogan is unmatched for knowledge and delivery for MMA commentary.
He reminds me of Tony Romo being able to see what’s coming next before it happens in NFL.

Thoughts on the Andrade slam?

I didn't like it and don't really think that belongs in MMA.

Had no problem with it, perfectly legal (not a 12-6 piledriver) and honestly pretty cool to see that happen at strawweight. Rest of the main card was looking pretty meh until that point so I’m glad something exciting happened.

Feel bad for Rose though, she was looking amazing until that happened. Her striking gets better every time I watch her. Using the kimura to defend the slam was a good idea but as Cormier pointed out she needed to let go as soon as Andrade lifted her up. I’d pick her to win if a rematch were to happen.

That was the most violent KO I've ever seen. Askren's career is probably done.

I thought Santos beat Jones. Had him taking rounds 1, 2, and 5 but it was very close. It was impressive that he fought the way he did considering he hurt his knee early.

Yeah I thought Santos won the fight but didn't do enough to take the belt if that makes sense.

Uriah Hall's knockout in the Ultimate Fighter was the most scariest I've seen

Both are violent indeed though, don't think it ends his career though as it's only the first in ring knockout (assuming that he doesn't have many training ones unrecorded)

Yeah, fortunately he passed all his tests and got discharged from the hospital last night. That looked worse than it actually was. Hopefully he takes at least the rest of the year off before he fights again. He's great at promoting a fight and that fight was probably the most anticipated going into last night.

Masvidal is a real one. Give that guy a title shot.

Did anyone else think the main event was crap? I know White loves to prop up Jones but that was five rounds of dancing around to get to a decision knowing they would not give it to the challenger.

Holy crap.

Thiago Santos fought most of his light heavyweight title bout with Jon Jones on essentially one leg.

Santos tore the ACL, MCL, PCL and meniscus of his left knee
in the UFC 239 main event Saturday night in Las Vegas, his manager Alex Davis confirmed with ESPN. Tests came back with that information Monday, Davis said.

Brazilian outlet Combate was the first to report the news. Davis said that Santos is likely to be out for the rest of 2019 and beyond.

Its hard to give a guy a title shot when he doesn't show up to his obligations. He's done a great job and finally getting his time in the spotlight, but you have to play the game a bit as well

If you are going to pull this just before a title shot, what does that say to the UFC once the title is around your waist. There has only been a couple fighters that fighting the man has paid off
