    I read elsewhere that Makabu might be fighting one of the Belgian based cruisers soon

    Calm down. I'm damn sure these dudes were all doping to begin with. VADA just seems to have took away the blanket from people's eyes. You have to wonder why fighters refused VADA.

    Discipline is what was one of the most impressive things about Usyk's performance.

    He tried to clown a bit, loosen up - usually a sign of frustration.
    We've seen this happen many times before - a young strong fighter gets discouraged by a slicker weaker more mature opponent.
    He stiffens up, makes more mistakes as the fight progresses and ends up with a mildly controversial lackluster win on his hands.

    But it's the second fight in a row in which Usyk, despite his inexperience, overcomes problems through sticking to the right gameplan, even if it feels uncomfortable.

    There are rumors of Eeron vs Sanya next year.

    Too good to be true.

    Untested professional weight lifters perform better than tested weight lifters.
    http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/what-powerlifting-tells-us-about-the-effects-of-peds/

    Even if tests fail to pick the extreme majority of users, the fact that they have to microdose is already diminishing the effects.

    VADA means the fighters will have to be more careful with their PED use which most of the time should lead to using smaller concentrations of the banned substance.

    In a way, drug testing is working.
    Even if it doesn't stop usage, it does dampen it.

    Gassiev will smash Glowacki.

    Had to laugh when I saw Bad Left Hook rank Lebedev as low as #7 in their Cruiserweight rankings.

    @Flea Man, what do you think?

    They thought Gassiev's win over Lebedev was "pretty clear" ?

    Wow.

    I thought Lebedev won, though it was a particularly tough fight to score.

    :lol: Nah, I just know @Flea Man is a big Lebedev fan & that ranking is completely ridiculous. He's quite clearly #3 in the division to me.

    He's no.3 for me as well.

    Also, I write for Bad Left Hook! I think Scott is just expecting Lebedev to completely fall of this year.

    I don't, but I do think Gassiev snatched the last bit of his prime away.

    It's ok that you chickened out and betrayed Denis.

    He wishes you death, pestilence and a Happy New Year:

    This will have been a short title reign from Huck. Briedis is a really shitty matchup for him. A boxer type like Usyk, Mchunu or Drozd can beat Briedis. A slugger like Huck not. He knocked out Charr ffs.
