  1. Dam ufc going on without the boss Connor McGregor! It’s pretty boring without him there’s only four five guys better fun to watch

  2. Watched the fight again. Seems like Rose won the fight for every second it lasted other than the 2 seconds it took to have a freak accident. Rose simply looked like she was on a higher level. Only mistake rose made was not finishing Jessica in the first round. Tough loss for the ufc as Rose was attracted a more upscale, classy type of female fan. Oh well, I’m sure Dana will figure out how to get Rose to fight again soon as she’s a much bigger draw than the others at 115.

  3. That should have been illegal. She could have been paralyzed or killed. It doesn’t fucking matter that Rose was holding onto the kimura. That was essentially a pile-drive. That should have been considered an illegal throw resulting in a dq for Andrade. I hope to God this opinion picks up more steam from people on the inside, particularly other fighters to prevent something like this from happening again. I’m not upset that Andrade won. I’m upset that she won like that.

  4. Bad News Brown ..the baddest man in town.

    DC is such a liar that he doesn’t want the big payday. Cruz just told it like it is. DC knows the crowd is there to see Nate vs Petis. Nobody is really that hyped about DC vs stipe.

  6. Cruz is salty she got KO by a slam.

  7. FIGHT STIPE OR GET LOST DC
