Great night for two champions

Amanda Nunes shocked the world and knocked out Cyborg. I’m watching the press conference and now I think she just created some drama. Dana wasn’t stoked about a rematch, and now Amanda is saying the same thing. Is Cyborg getting run out of the UFC? This is how it ended with DJ too. I’m afraid this is the end of the 145 division. Dana keeps teasing that they have some great stuff in store, maybe Cyborg will be the first Zuffa Boxing star?

Jon Jones is a legit villain. He is the villain of the UFC. Fantastic. What if his drug test comes back with more questionable results? I have a hard time feeling angry about this, or feeling any kind of way at all. They seem content to have him emerge as a very dark character in this show, and  I’m here for the chaos.

Besides, everyone meets the wall at some point.

Chiesa submitted Condit. Not prime Condit, but the one who is now fighting to keep the coffee shop open and feed the kids. There comes a time in a man’s life… Anyway, Chiesa is so happy he didn’t cut weight and would now like to chase a belt. I wonder if he has RDA’s phone number?

We heard from Gus, will Cyborg join the press conference? Yes, she just arrived.

UFC 232 post fight

Cyborg is up. She wants to know why they didn’t let her talk after the fight. Maybe because she was knocked out?

She has one fight left on the contract. I really doubt we see her fight in the Octagon again. This is a DJ rerun. She was a dominant champ with no competition. Tonight’s events just opened up some new possibilities for all the women at 135.

Now I’m waiting for Jon. Which one shows up, the sinner or the saint?

The saint. All glory to God for all these blessings and he lov-

The villain just showed up. Said Daniel was never the 205 champ, and certainly not the Champ Champ, and if he wants the belt he needs to come down and beat him.

He was tested by two agencies today. Passed polygraphs.

I don’t like or dislike Jones, but the truth is that this is a mental game as well as a physical game. He held it together despite all the distractions of the week, he is most definitely the champ. For how long, we don’t know.

UFC 232 Prelims

Uriah Hall won, but he’s not looking so good. Should have knocked out that youngster early. And that wasn’t even the featured bout.

Ryan Hall went for a leg lock. Shocker. I guess if you have one great move you use it. Often. Ask Ronda Rousey.

Cat got kicked in the eye and that was a wrap. I think it was either Greg Jackson or Mr. Winklejohn who got a nasty eye injury after receiving a toe to the face. Torn cornea? Google it. He’s coaching now.
