    4 oz gloves y'all.

    Stipe bad game plan. Not nearly enough movement and striking from range. Spent almost the entire round in DC's kitchen and got knocked out.

    DC says flat out in the post fight interview, that they spotted a flaw in Stipe's clinch game and exploited it.

    Stipe should have stayed out of DC's kitchen.

    Well that was full blown ridiculous.

    ****ing Dana will let this shit become WWE if it means a half dozen extra PPV buys.

    Absolutely. I shake my head when I see a fighter claim that he doesn't watch tape, that his corner does all his planning, etc.

    That was awesome. The whole card minus Ngannou vs Lewis was great. Ngannou looks done.

    DC tho. Wow. The Lesnar angle was too obvious. $$$

    That shit with Lesner coming in the ring after was so staged... it was cringe worthy.

    Yep, ****ing terrible. The last thing the best HW champ in UFC history deserved at the end of that fight was to have a USADA refugee call him a piece of shit.

    Yea but you're still going to watch it.

    Interesting Dana calling out Ngannou about his ego considering he was the one blowing air into his head.

    He looked done imo. Mentally done.

    If UFC starts to slide too heavy towards that nonsense, no I won't. UFC needs to be very careful with this shit, turn off enough fight fans who have zero interest in that WWE bullshit and an outfit like Bellator could easily pick up steam.

    Yeah, Ngannou looked like a guy who has lost his will to fight.

    I have a feeling Vince/Dana (mainly Dana) are misjudging how much fan crossover there actually is between WWE/UFC

    UFC fans as a rule hate fake garbage, and WWE hasn't been about wrestling in ages.

    Judging by the forum/online chatter I'm seeing, there's almost a 50/50 split between "Stop with this WWE bullshit" and "LOLZ, that's Brock Lesnar's music!!!!!"

    So I think there's a lot of overlap, what I don't think though is that there are a lot of WWE fans who are only casual UFC fans that this will mop up. Brock pulls about 800K-1M buys for his events, which is well above average, but I think it's baked in at this point. You're getting Brock fans, but you're not turning them into UFC fans that will buy better fights involving guys with less notoriety (it's criminal how poorly Might Mouse's fights draw for example..)

    Basically, I think Lesnar fights are one time cash grabs that don't grow the brand or the sport. The fact that he's probably the most juiced up fighter in UFC history makes it even worse.

    He's arguably just as stale for WWE as well.

    Dude is never on TV ( which makes sense to a degree as such a spectacle should be quasi rare, but the fact he's been around for 15 years or so, dampens the spectacle a fair bit) but he also holds the most important strap on the most important show. I'm not sure how big a draw he is to WWE fans anyone on a PPV level, which really is neutered regardless because of the network.

    That is the problem with Lesnar in WWE now. He wrestles so infrequently, when he does they do nothing to help the product. And even the little spike in numbers when he is around is dwindling.
