***UFC!*** The Authentic Official Israel "The Last Stylebender" Adesanya Undefeated, Undisputed Middleweight Champion / General MMA Thread

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

Who do you WANT to win? (Not who do you think WILL win)

  • I want the Fighting Irish to win

  • I want the 209 to represent again

  • I just want a good, action-packed fight like the last one

  • Test to see if I can change the poll?

  • Are these options 4 and 5?


Results are only viewable after voting.

Didn't watch the main event, if anyone did, did Watterson spend the whole fight trying to outpoint the ghosts of the octagon?


I can't stand Waterson, and want her off of my TV unless she's in a prelim bout. Sick of getting her shoved down my throat because she's pretty and smiles a lot.

Just out of interest, I looked up her UFC record.

  • She's 6-5 in the Octagon
  • Her best streak over an 11 fight span is 3 consecutive wins
  • She's never had a title shot or even a #1 contenders match, though they've been desperate to give her one since the day she signed the contract
  • She's main-evented FOUR cards though, despite never being anywhere near the title in a weak division even with a massive promotional push
  • She should currently be riding a 4 fight losing streak, except they robbed my girl Angie Overkill.
  • Before today's loss, she was barely hanging on to a top 10 spot in the strawweight division.
  • She's fought 5 of the current top ten - the champ, #2 contender, #4, #6 and #10. She's 0-5 against them. Oh and she's older than all of them. She's never going on a title run.
Why is this woman on my TV competing in 5 round main events? I guess it's fair to say that this was a short notice main event on a nothing card. But Watterson is a prelim fighter, I'm so sick of seeing her stink up the tops of cards. :fire

:hat
Oh man!! that jab then double jab at 1:07. That's hilarious. I get if she was doing it as like poking the jab out to find some space against someone coming at her but the girl she through them to wasn't anywhere near her and was moving away from her!!........ I'm no where near a professional fighter but I reckon I'd be able to judge the distance better than that.

Has anyone ever brought the fighting ghosts things up to her? I'd be interested to hear what she has to say about that.



Me too. He's always come across as a massive dimwit bully and all-around thick, arrogant cunt to me. Not surprised at all that he's an anti-mask moron, or that he's been repeatedly accused of throwing racist abuse and groping fan's misusses. He's always come off as exactly that kind of cunt to me, I have never bought his "Cowboy's a cool guy!" shit for one second. :bart

:hat
Interesting :think1

I've never seen anything but good bout Cowboy. It's all "he's just a true fighter, not scared of anyone can always be counted on! good ol humble guy"
Granted I know next to nothing about the bloke though so wouldn't surprise me if I'm missing something painfully obvious

if you need to give money to big business to make fights interesting? i plain don't understand., fight's happening whatever you do. why do you need to give money to a billion £$£$££$£ business to enjoy a fight? sounds like you are a dumbass bitch mark.
:lol: It’s just a bet. Calm down, and my name’s not Mark.

Every now and then I throw $50 on a couple of bets on a big PPV fight or card. It makes it more exciting to watch. If I win, great, I'll buy myself some more stupid lights essentially for free, or take the missus out to dinner or give myself some other little treat. If I lose, well I stream all the cards every week, so technically I should be spending money for that shit anyway. :lol:

Though this does lead every now and then to getting the shits with fighters that I like. I had $20 each on Stipe to finish Francis in the 3rd and the 4th in their first fight, and on Nate to finish Conor in the 3rd and 4th of the rematch. Both of them were infuriating to watch play out, Stipe especially. :lol:

Ferguson done. He's lost 11 consecutive rounds on all judges cards.

Was 50/50 on who I want to win the main event, until the walkouts. Cheering for Chandler. Happy to see Oliveira take it, he's a class act, but I kinda like Bisping having the record for most UFC fights before winning the belt. Also I like the way Chandler speaks and his charisma, and he annihilated my boy Dan Hooker so okay, if he then wins the belt in his next fight then that takes some of the sting off the loss for Hooker.

If they fought 5 times...I have no idea who would won out. That's pretty awesome when you think about it
Yeah, this is a great call. I thought Chandler looked far stronger after round 1, then Oliveira hits him with two beautiful left hands.

Fucked my bet up though, I had Dariush to win and then Oliveira by sub.

I slept through the main event, but woke up immediately after the fight ended. I also slept through McGregor v Khabib :patsch.

I saw the highlights and the first round on YouTube though. The stoppage was justified. Olivera had his right hand protecting his chin when he landed that left hook. It was a thing of beauty. From the favela to the top of the world. I hope he is able to hold to the belt.

Dariush should fight Justin and Olivera should fight the winner of the rubber match.

I don't see how Bisping's record before winning the title is more impressive than Oliveras. They said last night he now has the most submissions and TKOs in the UFC. Combine that with the fact that LW is more competitive than MW. Your post comes off as salty.

It's not salty. I like Oliviera, I don't think that he's The Man in the division yet because I don't see how you can have a real LW title fight without Poirier or Gaethje involved, but he is the champion, he put on a great performance and I'm happy for his achievement. I always like seeing his name on a card, and it's been enjoyable seeing his journey up the billing. But that's a cool record to have, and Bisping is one of my ten favourite fighters ever. :conf

I like Bisping too. Gaethje should fight Dariush, but I can see them putting Olivera against him. It seemed like the UFC really wanted Chandler to win and Gaethje is a tough fight for anybody. I just don't think he deserves a title shot yet.
