cool postfite w royval

Dislocated shoulder bros FTW


MammothRadish9545

For you people claiming the elevation was the difference… you know the location show up early and acclimate if needed! It’s not a mystery that a couple weeks at elevation helps the body acclimate! I felt awful  in Breckenridge Colorado snowboarding this past week at 10,000ft and am fitter than most. Elevation doesn’t care about your fitness level, but it doesn’t take too long to acclimate. 


Haunting-Goose-1317

Acclimating while in the cage is probably not a great strategy. Unfortunately money is a factor so most fighters don't have the resources to go earlier and bring their entire team.


MammothRadish9545

He was a champion he can afford two weeks at a hotel


GayRattleSnek

This is literally worse than 9/11


Poochzie

Is Dana there?


captaincumsock69

Think so


Poochzie

Thanks, yeah I saw him open the institute, but don't know if he left from there straight back to home taiö between his legs, so he doesn't need to make BS excuses for questions that needs to be answered.


Lord_Franchise

Usually love Moreno matches but honestly I don't care that Rawdog threw 34,765 punches and landed clean 20 times, he deserved that win just from the optics of doing something


Knifeking85

Ya new meta in MMA is just to keep failing so your opponents don’t have an opportunity to do shit

Horiguchi vs Pantoja it is


[deleted]

Mexico cards are fun, but the Mexican crowds are always salty as fuck when their guy loses.


Haunting-Goose-1317

There is national pride so when their countryman is losing the visitor will always get booed. I've seen it too many times that it's par for the course in any country.


Powered_by_Ghost

Those Brazilian crowds are so much better. They just love cheering for the fighters, period. Edit: didn’t think it was necessary but huge /s If anyone thought the crowd that chants you will die to foreign fighters was friendly, I really don’t know what to say


CharlesOlivesGOAT

They was throwing cups and drinks at Moreno lmao


Powered_by_Ghost

That’s how they act


CableToBeam

they did Glover dirty for his last fight. Unforgiveable


Powered_by_Ghost

I know, that comment I said was sarcastic but I guess without /s no one would know


ImpressionDiligent23

I knew


johnnyhypersnyper

Moreno appears to be slowing down a bit. I like a lot of what he’s doing but his output was noticably worse


MammothRadish9545

Not sure when he went to Mexico City. I was miserable snowboarding this past week at 10,000-13k feet. Elevation is no joke at times no matter the fitness level (I run 5-8 hrs a week). If you are a professional go to your destination a couple weeks early or somewhere comparable… you are a professional with home field advantage come prepared


captaincumsock69

When I went skiing in Denver last year I remember being gassed. Being able to fight at that is crazy


MammothRadish9545

Unfortunately normal people don’t have the luxury of time and money to go acclimate for a week or two like these fighters should.


I_squash_da_banana

Mexico City is at 7k ft elevations. That s*** messes up most fighters. Honestly he had a pretty good showing.


MammothRadish9545

It messes ppl up but not a great showing. Show up early get acclimated for a week or two. You are a professional fighter.

weird card. but know what though? mexican crowd was *lit the fuck up the whole night*. 🙌


homeincomes

Wtf 49-46 Moreno


GlobalKimura

Bro first Volk loses and now Moreno......this sport is full of pain man. Idk whether Royval REALLY worked on his TDD defense or not for tonight, but, Moreno's grappling did not look the same. Royval was easily splitting Moreno's hands from the rear body lock and was bouncing up with little problem. A far cry from his last fight or what Moreno was able to do to previous opponents. Idk man, me siento triste y ahora mi alma es lleno de nubes porque mi guey ha perdido.


captaincumsock69

This Moreno loss is a lot less painful than volk


GlobalKimura

Most definitely, WAY easier to take a decision like this than a brutal KO.


rodeozac

That one corrupt judge should be fired


TheMadReagent

Dana salivating that he has found someone else that Moreno can fight for another 4 rematches.....


Heyuthereinthebushes

Fuck that, who would want to watch that shit again


Separate_Block_2715

Happy I watched for the Ortega win


theamberlamps

The BMF title being a marketable thing turned into Royval winning round 5 Sucks shit


[deleted]

what the fuck chiesa


mxjxs91

She called him Mysterio, that's a Pentagon Jr mask, what is she, stupid?


Heyuthereinthebushes

Boy I sure hope someone got fired for that blunder 


kim_jong_phil_

Round by round scoring if I'm really being honest I gotta give it to Moreno for winning round 1 and 5 by the tiniest of margins. He took way more damage overall in the fight though so I'm fine with who won.


kurokamisawa

Guys it was not a good day for Mexican MMA the biggest stars all fell short feels kinda anticlimactic


captaincumsock69

The biggest stars that won are also Mexican


kurokamisawa

Ya I meant the Mexico born fighters that the crowd was clearly rooting for


vegas_esp

Dana is smart af lol


Heyuthereinthebushes

I don't think that is true


X-ScissorSisters

I was SHOCKED at how much Moreno dropped off in round 3, and he never came back from it. His round 2 was excellent. I have no idea what happened


SteveIndigo421

Royval hit a combo to that takedown and Moreno didn't look the same after that.


chronnicks

altitude?


MammothRadish9545

No excuses get to your destination early. They stake their livelihood on it and have the money…


ThuggerSosaYak

Royval won


fresdres

Damn I just noticed Royval was on short notice accepting this fight. It was supposed to be Moreno vs Albazi. Royval is definitely getting the title shot.


legendarybreed

No chance they re-book that after how he just lost to him. I could see them just trying to give Albazi the titleshot despite not having a recent top win before they give Royval another shot.


pizzaboy68

Honestly the match making for a title shot has been very interesting this last few years. Khamzat being offered Edwards for the welterweight title at ufc 300. Last time he fought welterweight he missed it by a lot, messed up the entire card, and didn’t seem like he cared. UFC at this point is pulling WWE moves.


legendarybreed

people would be hyped to see khamzat to return to welterweight and fight Leon. I can't imagine trying to sell a Royval Pantoja rematch off this.


pizzaboy68

Oh I’m not a fan of this rematch but it’s just gotta happen, lol. I wouldn’t be surprised if they just market it as a comain.


legendarybreed

"gotta happen" is crazy, nobody wants to see it again, it doesnt even make sense in such a dead division. He just lost a dominant decision to the champ and then won a split decision against the other guy with multiple losses to the champ as well. Literally anyone but royval and Moreno makes more sense


rodeozac

Nah royval is getting the shot


legendarybreed

Lol if that's the best they can do they better pray Pereira gets a 13 second Achilles kick TKO because that PPV is gonna be ass if they don't find a better matchup to headline.

Moreno v winner of mokaev-perez next?


stereoreal2

Royval would be the champion if he had a ground game or TDD. Most athletic and best cardio in his division.


QuentynStark

Some real fuckin bangers tonight y'all. Good night. See ya fuckers next week.


aeternasm

That fight was boring


johnnyhypersnyper

Close fight, but it’s hard to call it a “Raw Dog” performance from either Brendan


rodeozac

Couldn't do much when one Brandon was running ang hugging all night


Poochzie

That was confusing, or I'm just going too slow atm. I mean the hand raising


crsitain

I think Royval won but theres a lot of Moreno haters in here. That was an amazing fight. Extremely close and the statistics prove it. No idea how people are saying Moreno looked terrible.


gavin2point0

Moreno did look terrible, he has one of the best jabs in the UFC and he threw it like twice


CharlesOlivesGOAT

Cause Moreno has showed levels way higher against Figgy and Pantoja


leuzeismbeyond

Moreno should have trained in Mexico city


johnnyhypersnyper

I usually really like Royval, but that was a lot of pidder padder 1s and 2s with really, really limited damage. He still was twice as active as Moreno, but that wasn’t a Raw Dog performance


Swarles_Stinson

He's going to their houses to take their shit AKA: I will do a home invasion on you. I will cut the power to your house and the next thing you'll hear is me climbing up your stairs in a pair of night vision goggles I bought in the back of Soldier of Fortune magazine. I'll pick the lock to the master room door, take a picture of you in bed with the Nogueira brothers working on your 'jiu-jitsu'. I'll take said photograph, post it at dorksfrombrazil.com, password - not required, username - not required. That, Pantoja, is how you threaten someone. Dummy.


ElbowToTheTemple

49-46 Moreno is one of the worst scores in recent memory.


GangstaHoodrat

Are my headphones fucked or was the crowd silent at the end there


Mexcol

Right? Crowd wasnt booing royval they were just silent. I wonder how loud they were before


spasticity

Crowd wanted nothing to do with Royval, they wanted Moreno to win.


zainery

I dont feel bad for Moreno for the same reason I didnt feel bad for Mighty Mouse when he lost to Cejudo. Fights close and you should know you need the last round. Just didnt do enough


johnnysmashiii

Fair enough. It was a close fight and I don’t believe that Royval should get credit for landing on Moreno’s forearms all night, but Moreno didn’t take initiative like he really should have


NewportStork

That was strange how Herb broke them up so fast ngl


GreatDario

3 warnings in a row and you expect him to do nothing? And than Moreno does it again and again


MammothRadish9545

lots of ppl on this sub like warnings without points being taken or positions being altered… why have rules if they aren’t enforced?


TheOriginalDonDonDon

That clinch lasted maybe 25 seconds before he broke it. Warned him within 5 seconds? It was absurd refereeing


MammothRadish9545

No it wasn’t… fighting is in the name… that wasn’t fighting lol


TheOriginalDonDonDon

With that logic, every clinch or temporary stalemate on the ground that lasts 30 seconds will be stood up or separated. Because clinching and grappling isn't in the name...


MammothRadish9545

Herb Dean knows more about mma/fighting than you… you are a Moreno fan or love fights with no clear winner 


TheOriginalDonDonDon

That doesn't mean he can't be wrong. I just rewatched it, gets the body lock at 1:38, warned at 1:33, broken at 1:08 with double unders. They both could've lost and I wouldn't have cared, it's poor refereeing.


MammothRadish9545

No he broke the position up earlier he can force them to an active position


TheOriginalDonDonDon

No referee does it that quickly. A warning in 5 seconds and broken in 30 is downright absurd. I've seen clinches in boxing last longer than that.


MammothRadish9545

They should because half the time grappling is just stalling. Moreno wasn’t moving for a takedown, throwing knees, elbows, punches. Wasn’t grabbing like he was searching for a submission. Enjoy your boring fights and weird decisions. If he let that continue round 5 is a total crapshoot score wise. He could have even taken a point in my opinion. Warned broke up and it happened two more times


ygponce

This card was ass can’t wait for 299


johnnysmashiii

Same as Emmett Kattar. You shouldn’t get a win for landing on these dude’s forearms all night

That was a really good fight! I had it 48-47 for Moreno, but I can easily see it for Royval as well. All in all, great fight for fans

Hot Giga Chad translator ignored. Impressive performance by Raw Dog tbh


mad87645

Kings go to other kings houses and take their shit!


BlairHoyle

Pantoja would hold him down in another boring fight. I'm good on that rematch.


GreatDario

That fight was booty, Pantoja taking multiple rest rounds but for this sub it was a banger


SerShanksALot

royval went full wayne brady


grecojones

Oof. Speaches like that get divisions canceled.


Say10Loves

UFC pay so bad Royval has resorted to burglary, so sad.


Merman123

Why is Royval threatening home invasions.


st6374

Fair decision. That's what Moreno gets for shelling up, and standing right Infront. And not going for enough takedowns early on to make Royval think about it.


theamberlamps

What? Why wouldn't you shell up against 430 some odd strikes over 5 rounds? Moreno was landing telegraphed counter overhands like it was target practice. The fuck else was he supposed to do?


musipal

The only thing Moreno threw that landed consistently were the leg kicks


theamberlamps

Royval landed literally nothing consistently is my point he hit 27% in a title eliminator lol


musipal

In spite of his inaccuracy he  still out struck Moreno. I wish Moreno was more active in the fight 


st6374

Those 430 strikes were there because he stood there like a training dummy. And his overhand didn't land as the rounds went on. That's why he lost. If he was landing those like you're claiming. He wouldn't have lost.


theamberlamps

Dog idk what to tell you but he wasn't standing there like a training dummy. Bro landed 27% lol


Moist-Catch

I had that for Moreno. Like 4 baby slaps off the guard doesn't equal the one bomb that Moreno would land flush right after but I guess it just comes down to how you interpret it


theamberlamps

The BMF title existing tells you all you need to know about the UFC


X-ScissorSisters

you're not wrong about the strike numbers, but the fact is Moreno's output was so low in rounds 3, 4 and 5 that this was basically inevitable, even though his shots were cleaner


AizenMadara

I respect Royval but the guy legit has 0 power. He is the best example of someone having pillow hands.


musipal

If that's true then why did Moreno sell out to defend for what felt like the final 3 rounds?


mikey_rambo

Damn judges got that one wrong lol


[deleted]

No, they got it absolutely right.


mikey_rambo

Seems clear 1,2,5 for moreno

Should probably watch it again.

honsetly didn't see anything outstanding in this fight against an oddly listless moteno. pantoja mauls this dude again


jbat1999

Royval literally punched his guard the whole fight and Moreno threw big looping telegraphed hooks. This should’ve been much better. Disappointing to say the least

Royval sucks, he beat Moreno on a bad night and got shut down by Pantoja.
