Was gonna rush down to the TAB before it started and put some cash on Barao and Almeida to win their respective fights. Bloody glad I didn't - both got belted. Cody Garbrant looks and acts like a tool but geez he went through Almeida like a week-old taco, absolutely demolished him.
Who is the belt holder in that division Demps: is it Conor? Garbrant looked mighty impressive today and will give the title a shake by the looks of it.

Dominick Cruz is bantamweight champ.
He fights to defend the title this Sunday on another good card.

Cmon AHX, it's better than boxing..
I'm a huge martial arts fan since a child and ufc is #1 in combat sports.
Some would say what u said about rugby league.

Whats the message behind boxing?
Its a sport.
Two athletes entering an octagon to find out who's the better on a given day.

Fighting has been entertainment for humans since day one.. Think gladiator days.
We love it and its in our blood since cave man days.

It's a discussion after all :P
You're in my top 5 fav posters too AHX, username from a great Edward Norton movie... Love it.

Im not a Rousey fan anymore, Miesha Tate has won me over and I hope one day she gets a win over Ronda

McGregor will get absolutely ruined against Floyd in a boxing match mate, it'll be light work for him too... Absolutely no chance lol

Miesha is a stunner.
Ronda, over rated.. She'll stick with the acting cos her fighting career is done lol.

Conor isn't the world's best anything and Floyd is potentially the world's best boxer (current. Hes retired now tho..)
Floyd will open his skull if it's boxing.. Not sure how it'd go if MMA, id stick with money mayweather tho.

It's a decent card. I still want to see McGregor vs Diaz 2 but this is a good card.

I'm looking forward to Stephen Thompson vs Rory MacDonald more than any other upcoming fight. It's on June 18th.

Wonderboy is a freak.

Hope Faber beats the hell out of Cruz today-Cruz is a dead set knobhead. I don't think he will though unfortunately.
Also hope Rockhold wipes the floor with Bisping and shuts that huge mouth.
