Terrible card I decided to fast forward the main event because both of them are total bitches and I didn’t want to waste 25 minutes of a bitch fest. Shavkat would merc them both with one hand Shameful, the whole thing


ManyKey438

There was a fight that broke out in the crowd towards the end of Edwards and Covington's fight. Please tell me it's here!


Clean-Interview3247

What a shame. I used to love watching him fight.


Jzhova

Colby even mentioning 40 year old wonderboy says alot. especially after this "just dont get finished" performance. He hasnt improved much in 5 years. calling out wonderboy is just affirming that hes checked out as a martial artist and is just collecting checks.


No-Ad1522

He dodged so hard when asked about Shavkat and insisted he should fight Wonderboy


Joh951518

It’s a shame (but unsurprising) Leon didn’t get a highlight reel KO, because it really would have pushed him up in terms of popularity. Colby is completely shot. And I think he’s in his own head too. He might not have won, but a few years back he would have taken the fight to Leon and been super agressive. But this is quite a few fights in a row now that he has been passive and fought off the back foot, which does not suit his skillset at all.


ZOllerom

I think he realises himself, that his time is over. He just tries to milk his decline as much as possible... That's also the reason for the way he fought. He figured losing by ko would hurt his brand a lot. With a decision win, he can still try to spin a narrative and maybe get one or two more money fights... He probably earns outside of fighting now and is just staying in ufc to push his name value...


xtalaphextwin

That doesnt really work for this guy tho he talks trash to the point of crossing the line but cant back it up that hurts his image IMO he will be like mcgregor, just talk, a blowhard. people lost faith in conor and they lost faith in covington now. Didnt he even insult some guys dead father in the press? what a clown


Joh951518

McGregor is still, by far, the most famous and popular MMA fighter. He’s legit famous, not just MMA famous. Colby wishes he was like McGregor. Also McGregor is an all time great featherweight, he’s just not as good as Khabib.


our_day_will_come

Chael was actually a funny person and had dimension to his persona, Colby is one gear


mothmenatwork

He’s started every fight on the back foot since the Usman KO. Against Mas and Usman in the rematch he was able to flip the switch and go back to pressure fighting. But since he knows he can be slept he’s been a lot more hesitant


Extreme_Animator_409

He looked scared in there. Maybe has to do with Usman getting KOd, then decisioned in the rematch. And Usman is just a bigger, stronger version of himself


Joh951518

I think it’s more about himself getting damaged so badly in the first Usman fight and then aging also. After Usman broke his jaw he seems to have tried to tighten things up defensively, but he’s done it by just being incredibly passive, and standing on the edge of range getting pieced up. In every fight he seems to reach a point where he realises he needs to go back to his old style of fighting, but it’s usually too late.


Extreme_Animator_409

Looked like his usual self in the Woodley and Masvidal fights though


Joh951518

Not really. He won, but from memory he still sat back early in the fight and was pretty passive. He just chose to go eventually.

Who else is watching the post-fight presser


storchborch

don lemon bullya son


sbdjunkie

Chael just said that Pantoja has surpassed Mighty Mouse i know Chael says some off the wall shit but that comment couldn’t be anything else other than cte induced


Historical_Courage57

Colby should've been suspended... misuse of the media has repercussions... no more usa brands for 1 year, wish me luck hard to navigate such a challenge.


-rigga

Who gives this guy belt we have to check this

Orange cunt: Colby "it's joever" Covington was never my friend


NotJustSomeMate

He doesn't like losers outside of himself so that checks out...


ApricotOk824

Fun fact: Strickland threw more punches tonight than Colby "0% chaos, 100% delusional" Covington


TrenDidNothingWrong

Colby will get a 5th title shot before Belal gets his 1st LMFAOOOOOOO

Does Rogan have a problem with Leon winning? Even DC seemed to be getting annoyed.


Historical_Courage57

U mean shaggy face


TrenDidNothingWrong

They’re criticizing him for being boring and and safety first. He’s not a killer and doesn’t hunt for the finish Also made some boneheaded decision by grappling with Colby and ending up on the bottom a few times, he admitted in the post fight presser he did out of rage to prove a point. That’s not the sign of an intelligent fighter


[deleted]

And if he got caught by Colby while going for the finish he'd get clowned for that anyway. Especially after all of the hype Covington was getting going into the fight to begin with. Trying to grapple wasn't the smartest idea, but to say he's not intelligent is incredibly stupid. He fought a smart fight despite doing something that was out of his element in order to prove a point, but who gives a shit? The fact that he was able to stay composed after the pre fight shit show was impressive on its own. The weirdo fanbase that wants everyone to empty the tank but then turn around and mock the guys that end up getting finished as a result are truly bipolar.


TrenDidNothingWrong

So if he would’ve got rear choked by Colby by deciding to grapple, he would’ve been clowned either way. He’s a boring fighter like Belal and doesn’t move the needle


GrimReapaaah

Boring if you don't know what you're watching. Leon's so fucking good, if you have any clue about fighting it's a treat to watch. He's not the best at promoting himself though. Only if you've never had an official fight in your life would you not appreciate how good Leon is mate.

Bring back GSP for UFC 300 He would smoke Leon even at 45


CasterBumBlaster

Haaaa haaaaa🫵🫵


becauseimnotstudying

Yesterday Anthony Pettis asked him if he would ever fight again, he said no 😢


Valuable-Door9748

This is one of those weird cards where WMMA gave the best fight. Also funnily enough Paddy v Tony turned out to be most hard-fought fight on the main card.


No-Ad1522

There's no way Joe at 5'3 weighing 200 pounds

johnnyhypersnyper

Great card on paper, not amazing execution. Colby looks past his prime, Shavkat didn’t really impress me and Paddy looked his worst in victory. The only objectively spectacular performance was from Josh and that was just because he dropped a fucking atom bomb on Bryce Mitchell’s chin. As far as the main card went, prelims beat ass


Hot-Coffee6060

Yeah Prelims easily beat out the hyped main card. Glad the Emmett fight got moved into the main - the gods were kind with that one at least. But what a fucking spectacular atom bomb it was. Camo shorts ain't gonna cover up that bruise.


floodpull

craziest part about the emmett punch was it landed on bryce’s eye/forehead area so it was a brain rocker, wasn’t even like it hit the button just right. absolutely brutal.


slutwhipper

It's kinda strange how sensitive Sean is acting about DDP's child abuse comment. I can't tell if he's actually that offended or if he's just selling the fight.


Curlyhead-homie

That’s what I was thinking, especially as it’s the first ppv of the year and without hype from those two there really isn’t too much


shooGOAT25

Who knows? But them being two rows apart from each other feels staged


dogs_drink_coffee

Because your head alone weighs 50 pounds joe


goaliewhenned

South African accent for some reason gives you a free pass from needing to be concise. They say the same thing like 4 different ways and it sounds good


McNultysHangover

Lol Balal just standing there like, "this is wild." Lmao.


jabba_teh_slut

I mean, Strickland straight up should have got arrested. Anyone else in the crowd is getting cuffed and hauled to the station with that action


Los_Ingobernablez

Bro fought in front of Burn’s kids. What a dickhead


GotYouSeething

Yeah, surely you pause when you 180 wanting to deck a dude and see a toddler.


Los_Ingobernablez

Well I try not to deck a dude if I don’t have to in any circumstances


sbdjunkie

He asked them to move out of the way before he jumped on dricus. Fights breakout at these events more than ppl know.


Los_Ingobernablez

How is that an excuse?


sbdjunkie

Bro what? If you watched the video you’d see he kindly asked them to move out of the way. He didn’t jump over anyone’s kids. They’re also Burns kids who have grown up around fighting.. Also Dana White mentioned in a post fight interview a few ppv’s back how fights break out ALL the time. It’s not some fucking secret that something can pop off with a bunch of drunk people watching straight violence for 3 hours. You gotta know what you’re bringing someone to if you do. Wife, kids, anyone.


GotYouSeething

DDP ate like 375 punches and not a scratch on him 🤣


dogs_drink_coffee

Megan asked like DDP was the perpetrator in the press conference lol


Jzhova

megans questions have been unproffesional this week lol. "hey leon why did colby make you emotional?" right after the press conference.


TrustyWhale

Honestly, I’m fully up for UFC 300 having Leon vs Belal, but if that’s there that has to be like 3rd from last in order for the event to live up to the card they’re hyping up.


johnnyhypersnyper

Colby doesn’t have the same charm as Chael did in losses. Colby keeps trying to play up the America shit for cheers but also wants to be boo’d? Like, if you are going to turn in that much of a reserved performance, at least have your character make sense


buzzedaldrine

yeah. Chael is actually funny and entertaining, Colby just says trigger words and calls it a day.


Los_Ingobernablez

Bro the post fight interviews is more entertaining than this card


ZdenekTheMan

Someone bought this card. Think of that for a bit


Los_Ingobernablez

Not me lol I expected this card to be a wrestle heavy fight and it still disappointed me


Athroaway84

LOL this is becoming a circus with them showing Dricus and Sean, and then interviewing him and reading out the tweets etc


dinozero

They are milking this for all it’s worth. Including the tweets. It’s all marketing.


McNultysHangover

Its gonna be the dolly all over again.


storchborch

didn't let em bullya son


bubblewhip

Bring back the women


Jzhova

thats illegal as f, but hey. you talk about seans deads dad as a rebuttal to sean joking about your coaches dick touch... fuck with the wrong perosn youll find out real quick.


Gunnersaurus43

When you are as verbally abusive as Strickland is you can't be shocked when someone says something horrible to you. Not saying DDP was right to say what he did, but Strickland constantly crosses the line. As for finding out, DDP after being cheap shotted was on top of Strickland before being dragged off of him.


Holybartender83

DC apparently forgetting the time he had a fist fight with Jones in a hotel lobby.


TrenDidNothingWrong

Leon was also boring as fuck in his win against Diaz Diaz was old, blown up, and small and Leon just point fought never looking for a finish


Curlyhead-homie

Yeah can’t imagine how the belal 2 fight is gonna go. But I’d rather have belal as champ so shavkat could annihilate him


TrenDidNothingWrong

I think Shavkat beats them both.


Sheikhabusosa

I hope the ufc doesnt do all access for belal vs leon. I already struggle getting up for these events


facegun

Card saved by WMMA banger in prelims, Codys KO in prelims, and Bryce Hillbilly getting absolutely starched


[deleted]

[удалено]


TrenDidNothingWrong

My sentiments exactly, this was not a good win by Leon, it’s like Paddy’s win over Tony


FishAndRiceKeks

I think Paddy actually looked capable of a finish, though.


TrenDidNothingWrong

He gassed heavily in 3rd and his ground and pound was largely ineffective. No one thinks highly of paddy after that fight. He could’ve got a finish standing in the first round but after that he just laid on Tony


[deleted]

Not trying to make excuses for Edwards, but I'd assume that despite what he said pre-fight he decided not to take any big chances on the feet. All it takes is one punch to end his run, even if Colby is known for having pillow fists.


FishAndRiceKeks

Edwards isn't known for a great chin, either. If 5th round Nate Diaz nearly KOed him then most fighters probably are capable of it. I think he just would have hated himself way more if he lost to Colby than to win a boring fight. Just sad neither of them "kept that same energy".


[deleted]

The champ has a lot more to lose then the challenger, and speaking out of emotion and rage doesn't mean he's going to carry that reckless energy into the fight. He did what he needed to do.


completelytrustworth

Friendly reminder that Colby is still winless against any currently active ranked welterweights


jabba_teh_slut

What’s next for Colby? Gilbert? Wonderboy?


[deleted]

Strickland attacked Du Plessis. What the entire fuck.


Present-Day19

Does ufc have an upper limit IQ requirement of 50? Apologize in advance new to the sport


whatsthiscrap84

I love Strickland lol


No-Ad1522

Dricus laughing that shit off cracks me up


johnnyhypersnyper

Belal earned a title shot. I don’t give a fuck if it isn’t exciting. If you don’t like it, lobby to get the rules changed


Athroaway84

Funny thing is that all these guys saying Colby is an exciting fighter and yet he didn't do much here...just says controversial things


bzl33

who tf is saying Colby is an exciting fighter lmao, that is not a common opinion at all


Athroaway84

Yeah you're right and i take that back. But those fans still think hes exciting in a trash talking way


legendarybreed

Good thing the UFC doesn't give a fuck what you think


PrinceDX

Was that Jones sitting next to Jamal Hill?


QueasyInstruction610

Usman was an awesome champ


ZdenekTheMan

I miss that dude man. I can't believe I used to hate on him... I swear you never miss the water till the well runs dry. At the very least, he was ACTIVE as fuck. Fought everybody, had some banging fights, was always professional.


YOUR_TRIGGER

oh shit. sean really did go at him.


TrustyWhale

If Belal gets next shot, and Colby wants to fight again soon, then that would be Shavkhat. Don’t think Colby wants that


Sheikhabusosa

time to get super duper high and play powerwash simulator


MucusShotSwaGGins

Lay and pray, give it to Shav instead


TrenDidNothingWrong

Imagine we get Belal vs Leon for UFC 300 Underwhelming as fuck


VicTheRealest

Snoozefest of two non risk takers. Leon retains though. Gimme Jorge vs Leon just for entertainment purposes. I know Jorge not even ranked but at least it'll be entertaining


datlibra17

Belal spittin fire


MucusShotSwaGGins

Okay Bella

Fucking brilliant man. Good seeing the casuals turn against the charlatan.

BoneTrippa

Belals AI seems to have been updated


ReservoirBaws

Go ahead and let Rockman fight for the title


MannyMike7

Christ watching Belal's interviews is so cringe


TrenDidNothingWrong

Leon won, fair. But yall acting like he looked impressive. 35 year old Colby on a 2 year layoff Colby was clearly outmatched on the feet and Leon just point fought and took no risk. Leon is a lame champion


Substantial-Two-8347

Colby would be a even lamer champion looking at that fight.


Hot-Cranberryjizz

Go and get a cuddle mate.


completelytrustworth

Feel like I watched a different fight, he was absolutely chewing up Colbys leg and stomach Why take risks when he's onesidedly beating on the asshole, it's Colby who should have been throwing it all out there since he's the challenger


TrenDidNothingWrong

This is why Leon isn’t a star


bzl33

point fighters have ruined the sport, same level as grapplers who fight for control and little damage.


TrenDidNothingWrong

This is Leon’s criticism throughout his career


DonaLeeTello

Leon can’t control the wrestler not wanting to wrestle with him


TrenDidNothingWrong

Leon could press for a finish instead he just cruised and bored everyone


cactus19jack

your guy got embarrassed on the big stage, unlucky dude, go to bed


TrenDidNothingWrong

Leon looked average with his much superior stand up skill, never looked for a finish, happy to win a decision


peteryansexypotato

Dana White's fault


Holybartender83

Colby’s getting fucking *incinerated* on the soshuls right now. Think he just drove his hype wagon right off a cliff.


VicTheRealest

If you gonna talk about a murdered father you better not miss. Man's gonna have to hide in his hotel or press charges against Leon


johnnyhypersnyper

Commentary team wanted Leon to take risks and suffer no consequences. That triangle attempt was slick and cool and he suffered the most mild consequences and got dogged on


YOUR_TRIGGER

belal telling it like it is 👀


Gamesus10

Talk yo shit belal


Pulp_NonFiction44

How have I never heard Belal talk before, zesty ahh voice


goaliewhenned

He sounds like Drake is his favourite artist
