Annnnnd that train sadly comes to an end.

It's a shame that Woodley didn't put up more of a fight instead of just running and sprawling the whole fight.

He had Maia hurt in one and could have pressed the advantage.

After the fight, Woodley said he felt his shoulder come out, so he deserves some credit for fighting through it.

I always said Woodley would be the hardest fight out there for maia. theres nobody in the division that is a worse matchup.
I just kept thinking about galvao and Woodley a few years ago and I couldn't see anything maia could have done differently from andre.
I thought he might have pulled guard but honestly I think tyron would just push him off and stand back up. still. maia has beaten literally half of the top 15 and I don't really see anyone else he isn't capable of beating
 
In all fairness, she hadn't lost when he made that statement. Undefeated fighters sometimes seem invincible.

I did not pick Werdum or Bigfoot over Fedor, but some people gave me shit for not thinking those fights were automatic wins for the Last Emperor. Like they were offended that someone would dare to give these fighters a chance to win.

Ok...but Rogan went overboard...again...


But a woman beating 50% of men blah blah is hardly comparable to Werdum or Big Foot beating Fedor who was a huge favorite...C'mon Rek...

Werdum and Big Foot had fought other HW's and were successful. Rousey hadn't fought a man once...

is robbie lawler the scariest welterweight ever? i cant think of anyone scarier. there are better fighters but who else has got that murderers vibe like robbie? everything about the guy is terryfying.

strong imposing physique
tough as shit, made of pure will and determination
violent, kill or be killed attitude and seems at least a little bit crazy
carries dynamite in both hands
seemingly impervious to pain
hes the professionals professional, loves to fight and experienced as fuck

fucking scary
