Default UFC 238 tonight

Its a good card on paper and I think it will actually have a lot of good fights so I'm buying it. The one that I'm most excited about is Cowboy and Ferguson. I am rooting for Cerrone and would love to see him KO Ferguson. The main event should be a good one as well. Rooting for evileye to get the win tonight.
Bruce Buffer will bring the high energy introductions and Will be wearing a crazy *** jacket in typical Vegas style as always.

ARE YOU READY? LETS GET IT ON!

Just seen Tony Ferguson got the win over cowboy by ko/tko at 5:00 of round 2. That sucks as i was hoping cowboy would get a title shot..

But, this may set up a match between cowboy and Conor McGregor

I kinda feel like the UFC has run out of steam.


I may be wrong but I havenít bought a fight in a few years and these UFC threads have less and less posts.

For the longest time, they did and this new ESPN deal is horrible.. but they have some great cards coming up.

Fyi, cowboy got punched in the nose, causing bleeding and he made the mistake of trying to blow his nose. Him blowing and the air having nowhere to go, it had to settle somewhere. It settled around his right eye socket, rendering his right eye completely shut. Fight was called due to doctor stoppage. Tony and Cowboy should really run that fight back again, soon.

Cowboy is one that I still like to watch fight. I even told my wife tonight we should go watch the fight but the only place showing it was twin peaks or hooters. The fights have become so expensive that most local places wonít pay the money to show them.

Iím an OG from The Beast, Ken, Royce, and Into BJ, Matt, Chuck, Tito. I watched several years past that(most fights) until Bones Jones kept getting suspended. After that Connor is the the only arse whole who has peaked my interest and I didnít even want him get his butt kicked.

I would buy a good card for the 49.99. They are up to 79.99 now and that's crap. I would like to see tony/cowboy again. The Diaz/pettis fight is going to be a brawl. I'd like to see a nasty fight between robbie Lawler and Conor McGregor.

Robbie is always fun to watch.


Who was that red hair guy that always got his *** kicked but never got knocked out(for a while).

He had red dyed hair.

All the fights were really good. The prelims were even entertaining. The Tony / Cowboy fight was obviously the main attraction (for most). Round 1 was very close, back in forth, feeling each other out. Tony was causing more damage in the 1st but both were landing. The 2nd round was a brawling and most likely a 2 point round. Cowboy just simply could not handle Tony's pressure. As some said, Tony had a broke nose, blew his nose, and caused his nearly already swelled eye to shut. The doctors called the fight, and Tony got the TKO. I like both fighters, but Cowboy can handle the top 2-3 guys at 155 or 170. his chances against Tony are very slim.

The rest of the fights, were actually really good. The girls title fight, when of the craziest knockouts ever. The 135 title fight was really good. Henry was getting destroyed in the 1st round, no answers at all. The 2nd round he just decided to street brawl and one the fight in the 3rd. One of the greatest comebacks, I have ever seen.

The UFC goes through growing pains, like any sport. IN MY OPINION. Most of this is a result of the evolution of really big names and especially the heavies. A lot of people like watching heavy guys, and simply there are not any. DC and Jones at 205 and Heavy is all that is left. Most of the remaining guys are really bad. The 155 and 145 range is where the fun is. I personally feel as if the UFC is much more technical and has only improved. I don't like the commercialization of it all. Just look how many Brazilian champs there are now, this shows you the progression of MMA and not just BJJ.

The problem with the ufc right now imo is that you have no one to root for anymore. Itís a revolving door of fighters and if you donít keep up with mma at every level, you just donít know anyone. Iím not buying an $80 Ppv with people I have no clue who they are. Actually, Iím not spending $80 at all. Last time we bought one it was 50-60

Tony is such an unorthodox fighter.. defense against him is nearly impossible, but he opens his chin.

I'd like to see Diaz take on khabib.
