    I could tell the grayed, chubby old guy managers weren't from here.
    I assume they got sent here on assignment from corporate.
    They had the wherewithal to hire a little army of cute girls, part of the business model no doubt.
    Kept thinking that I was viewing a thing of the past.


    What was really interesting was the excitement for the womens' bouts.
    People were into it big time, and it was packed.
    It's mainstream now.
    I miss Bufalo Wild Wings. We watched Couture take the title from Silvia there, when you could only spot a few Tapout t-shirts Lol.

    If someone opened one over here it'd be a gold mine! How come there's one in Dubai and Saudi, but Ireland & the UK get the shaft?!

    I know Johnson hits like a mofo, but so does Barboza, and Khabib seemed to walk through him so I think that bad weight cut he had against Johnson may have had something to do with him getting wobbled.

    If he continues to cut weight right, he's more of a nightmare for Conor than I originally thought.(if that ever transpires)

    Dang, I hate to act old and everything but wasn't it nice when you could go in public and you were the only one with a Tapout shirt and no one else knew what it was?

    Before that Tapout guys had that show where they traveled around looking for fighters to sponsor.

We now know that yes, Justino can fight in the champion rounds. I like her a bit more now, although her blatant cheating makes it impossible to ever be a fan of hers.

    Khabib is a monster. He would obliterate MacGregor. Toss-up between him and Ferguson.
    Cyborg isn't going to ever lose in the current women's division. It's not just because of her roids, although that obviously helps. It's because she's the only real beast fighter in that division. I have yet to see even ONE other female (?) fighter that could stand on even ground against her.

    What are your feelings on Megan Anderson?

    I've never actually owned one lol, but do remember a time when you did see one it was safe to assume the person was either a hard-core fan, or at least trained.

    Didn't seem to last too long!

    Yeah, '96-'99. Around that time frame. Back when, if someone said something about an omoplata or Darce Choke while watching a fight, you knew that they trained too. Now days every kid yells that **** out at UFC fights just because they heard Joe Rogan say it in a fight.

    I'm gonna stop, I'm starting to sound like my father in law bitching about the good ole days. :D

    Yup, and then when you try talking about today's fight people look at you like you're an armchair coach when you start to do a fight analysis outside your normal circles.
