Have a feeling neither of these guys are going to be staying at 145 for long. Which is crazy since they are fighting for the belt.

That is the interesting side of this isn’t it?

They are both huge FW’s… Ortega is young tho and could probably handle the weight cut for another 3-4 years while i think Max might be at his limit.


Ortega is a year older than Max…

Legit thought max was older

Crazy he’s so young. Just seems to have more mileage i guess

Everyone loves a good hole.

Why do you type this Pit?

I miss my friend...

James is local legend on mmafighting. Imagine if Mr. rodgers was a fan of mma and posted on here.

Unfortunately he hasn’t posted on here in awhile.

Cheers guys, always wondered.

I know UFC 232 is the one chosen to close the year out

But this card is the one that has me feeling like a kid on Christmas. Holloway vs Ortega is a fight that’s happening at a perfect time. Both have essentially cleaned out the division with the exception of one another. I’m completely on the fence for this one. Plus the co-main and the rest of the card should be packed full of action. Countdown is on..


Who wins?


Because of striking? Would prime, confident, pre-boxing Ronda just blast through it?

That's a good question,

But the way I see that fight, Schevchenko has such an advantage over Rousey when it comes to striking. Also consider the fact that Schevchenko is a counter striker so she wouldn’t allow Ronda the same opportunities that fighters like Davis and Zingano allowed her

You could be right.

I just think that Ronda was way more dangerous when she believed she could get through people’s strikes. She was extremely fast about closing the distance and, in those few seconds, could absorb the punches. I think that once she grabbed Val, it would be all Ronda. Val might be able to hang for a while, but I think it would end up like Tate v Rousey 1, with Val having the skill to fight off submission attempts until she finally has to tap to one.

However, after she started thinking she could strike, she started paying attention to getting hit, worrying about it, noting that she didn’t like it, and her mind was focused on it. She lost her confidence and focus on just bulldozing people with her speed and strength.

So you’re back again stinking up the forums with your stupid opinions.

Do you actually believe the inane bullshit that you write?

Yesterdays comment from you just blew my mind… something about how men and woman are the same, i mean the stupid just pours out from every single one of your fat filled orifice.

Why don’t you go outside sweetheart, get some fresh air, talk to some humans in the real world because im pretty sure im not alone when i tell you your posts stink, your opinions stink, and nobody likes you.

Be gone evil wench!

Holy shit

That much vitriol over opinions you disagreed with?

I like MaryG just fine, as well as other people who have opinions I don’t always share. Echo chambers are kinda pointless.

Enjoy the fights, if you can see them through the red haze of your fury. (unless your whole post was just a parody of outrage, which it seems like it might have been. If so, well played. If not….man, try to lighten up a bit)



Drift away from apathy for one moment & you get exposed.

Going back to not giving a f***, in 3…2…1…


Thank you, Velosi.

And I know you say this as someone whose nerves I have gotten on in the past.
