    One of the things I feel happens with scoring in combat sports is that a lot of people seem to judge whether a fighter looks like their are tiring, more then what the are doing. Reyes was definitely slowing down, but he was the one scoring, repeatedly.

    Either way I still had Reyes winning the first 3 rounds.

    Now I guess it's time to start looking forward to Izzy vs Romero

    Who's anticipating the slugfest between Adesanya and Romero tomorrow?

    I got Adensaya by 3rd round knockout. Romero is a beast though

    Hard one to pick, Adesanya has that trait in that he can do something crazy & catch anyone, but Romero is a freak physical specimen & hits like a truck.

    I'll take Adesanya though, I think it will go to a decision & he'll take it because Romero has a habit of taking full rounds off to recover which has cost him some decisions.

    I fell asleep before the event last night & missed it, but I did see a picture of the hematoma Joanna had on her forehead.. the **** looked absolutely horrendous.

    I think BT will do a repeat at some point I'll hopefully catch at least the Main & Co-Main.

    Given the circumstances, I'd be fine if they postponed the fight by a month or 2 just so they can have a crowd in attendance. Having a crowd adds to the pressure & for such a big fight, I want them both under maximum pressure to see who copes with it.

    Both Khabib & Ferguson should not be allowed to fight anyone else in the UFC, until they've fought each other AT LEAST once.

    Let's go Tony!

    Another things that's an issue is that the commentators calling the fight have a big impact on how you view it. If Rogan is going on and on about a guy landing in exchanges, even when the other guy is doing the same or more, it's easy to think the wrong person is winning.

    So I know some like to think Jon Jones isn't a cheat. But considering his track record, is there any reason to think that this awful human being with no moral compass, wouldn't cheat? Especially as he has learned that all he has to do is lie, and there will be no consequences for all the BS he does?

    So will Tony vs Khabib ever happen? Last I heard Dana was considering a military base as an option with the troops watching.

    Or is this fight simply cursed?

    Dana insistent it is still happening. I doubt it will, and yet Dana seems craven and determined even for him.

    He compares to Vince McMahon in that way, but since they did all of their tapings, including Wrestlemania last week, they are technically on hiatus for a few weeks.

    Somehow the news of the Khabib/Ferguson fight eluded me, I think I just assumed that all the UFC events would be postponed pretty much like the rest of the world's sport more or less.

    It's a bad look for Khabib though to be the one to blink first, especially when the UFC was seemingly bending over backwards to make it happen judging by what I'm reading about them getting him special permission to fly out of Russia & evidently securing a venue during a global lockdown.
