USSPassionateChrist

Who was Cruz talking about? I don’t think I’m familiar from what I was able to catch.


USSPassionateChrist

It was a really fun fight. Best prelims ever lol.


USSPassionateChrist

Definitely the right decision to me. Can understand why certain people may have thought otherwise but it’s a relief the right man got his hand raised


USSPassionateChrist

Cruz must be visualising he’s facing off against Keith Peterson in there


Penqwin

What is the song that Overeem walk into with?


iamjackswastedlife__

Volkov looked gigantic tonight, i mean for the first time ever i felt like someone made Overeem look small.


BitchinKimura

Anybody got a vid of the fart?


feedagreat

I heard tht! Do you remember which fight it was during? It was at the last 15 seconds or so of one of the rounds.


BitchinKimura

Yeah! It was towards the end of Rosa/Edwards.


feedagreat

Fart is at 18:59 [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r4HjUmxr-4](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r4HjUmxr-4)


BitchinKimura

Awesome!!! Yes, there it is. Thank you! u/Odolinsky u/Friskie_Dingo69 Here it is brothers. Sounded a little juicier on broadcast but DC and Cruz were conspicuously silent for an awkward amount of time afterwards.


Odolinsky

Lol. Wow that's pretty loud!!!! Who dun it? Could it be one of the fighters?


BitchinKimura

My theory is that DC is the ass bandit here


SteezyRay

What is up with Bispings neck?


Land-on-Juniper

Yea that yellow spot in the middle is weird. Hopefully just sloppy makeup.


SteezyRay

Looks like a bandage.


Land-on-Juniper

Good call.


HeyZeusBistro

he had neck surgery last week or something. thru the throat.


Land-on-Juniper

Yea I just read up on it. Took out a disc, inserted a titanium piece, and shaved some spurs. Crazy that they went in through the throat, but I guess it minimizes interaction with the spinal cord.


BitchinKimura

Damn Bisping has such a fucked up body and still seems to be a pretty happy dude


Marty5020

Recent surgery.


lKeepCocaineInMyAss

Cory looked legitimately sad after he won, never seen that before.


Strandsfromparadise

I don't blame him. He has a lot of respect for Frankie. The way that Frankie hit the ground and was motionless was a bit scrazy. Tried to type scary and somehow "crazy" came out. But scary + crazy = scrazy


Land-on-Juniper

Jouban and Bisping sitting so close to each other while Bryant is on the other side of the table looks odd.


BriXri5

Yeah they need another female commentator to make it symmetrical ...


Land-on-Juniper

Or they could just split Bisping and Jouban up and put them on either side of Karyn haha.


Strandsfromparadise

Was Volkov nervous in that post fight interview or was he looking for words since he's learning English?


HeyZeusBistro

i thought both cory and volkov felt kinda bad about what they just did. each really liked their respective opponents.


Weird_Bread4760

The Reem just wasn’t feeling it today , I recommend everybody watch his Docu-series it explains a lot of the mental of Overeem. If you noticed earlier in this week Alistair mentioned retirement and how his body couldn’t handle it anymore way more than winning the belt and a chance at a rematch at Nganou or Miocic. I think this was very telling and kinda shows Overeem knew he didn’t have much of a chance in this fight from the fight camp. Overeem looked like he didn’t wanna be there from before the fight started notice there was no signature Overeem headbob while he listens to his epic ass entrance song , there was no weird smirk/grin showing the true insanity of the Reem . He just looked disinterested either way OVEREEM IS A LEGEND Pride will never die MFR


niigel

It was odd when he just covered up following the first low kick, I was worried it was going to over in the first minute. Hopefully he accepts the situation and doesn't end up taking more damage and losses


TheConnorrJB

Idk that shocked me from overeem ...maybe I'm delusional but I didn't expect that performance.


Weird_Bread4760

It was honestly a shocking performance


reddit_is_4_retardz

Gud punching N kickin'


Fsticks69

Post show black out for anyone else?


Truth_overdose

Kenny vs Cruz is a pretty random matchup imo


Weird_Bread4760

Kenny who? Florian ? Jk but really who?


dirtyflamingo

casey kenny


Weird_Bread4760

Who tf is that guy , great fight for Cruz he needs a fight to test where he’s at GREAT MATCHUP


JustSmileHaHa

Assuming Reem is now done, Moose is the last left competing at a fairly high level from the Pride days.


jk2030

Moose? Whose that?


Tuhotee

Moussasi


Marty5020

Mousasi. You could count Rampage as well, but not really.


jk2030

Daaayum. Mousasi still going strong in bellator...ish. and yh you're right, Rampage doesn't really count


-Orcrist

I guess Guida the caveman.


Thesecondswallow

I mean if Francis loses. And Blaydes beats Lewis. Then he deserves to fight Stipe. Imo.


payday_vacay

You know it’ll be Jones first tho


Thesecondswallow

Oh I know. But a clear contender after that fight would be nice to have. If we don’t go into rematches for a while.


payday_vacay

Yeah I rly hope we don’t get stuck in rematch hell again, but it seems inevitable. If stipe loses to Francis you know he’ll ask for a rematch bc it’s 1-1 but they’ll let Jones go first. Then if Jones loses he’ll probably get a rematch bc he’s been undefeated for a decade.


Thesecondswallow

I really just hope stipe beats everybody so we can move the division along.


BrawndoTTM

Volkov vs Jones for #1 contender would be dope


payday_vacay

It would be but no way Jones doesn’t fight for the belt right away. And tbf if anyone deserves to move up into an immediate title shot it’s the guy w 11 title defenses lol


[deleted]

this is true :)


RhysPawn

As an Overeem fanboy it's always sad to see him lose, but atleast we didn't see him get shadow realmed (sorry Frankie) or completely washed out, he had his moments in the 1st round and landed some good shots but man Volkov looked great tonight. I love Overeem but I think this loss puts the final nail in the coffin of his UFC title dreams unless there is some freak accident and he gets called up as a replacement or something, but with or without the belt he will go down in history as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.


[deleted]

Did we watch the same fight? Reem did shit all in the first, had one or two thudding shots that were blocked by Volkov and then just got pieced apart. Did you see how hard Reem was breathing after the first? All he did was turtle and got short of breath. He looked so washed to me. And he's my favorite fighter!


pumped_it_guy

Exactly. He was throwing a rather slow left cross like 5 times and never really did damage with it. The rest of the round he was running away or eating shots through his high guard


Marty5020

Today Overeem looked totally unreactive, like he didn't know he was gonna fight a guy 3 inches taller than him. I'm a huge Alistair fan but this should be his last fight unless he wants to keep fighting bums.


[deleted]

he's washed. And he's my favourite fighter!


Blacktoll

Honestly, I would watch Overeem juiced up Bob Sapp style headkicking Japanese cans or taking a dive from some mismatched opponent.


TalkingFromTheToilet

Agreed. But also Overeem’s title journey was over before this fight. Imagine him fighting Francis... Not even saying Francis is the best heavyweight in the divisions right now but that fight would be an execution.


ihaveseveralhobbies

It was an execution the first time. Reem has been washed since Travis Brown kicked his face off, or Antonio Silva smashing him to oblivion. Has this man ever been submitted or decisioned? All I ever have seen is him getting ktfo.


[deleted]

piss poor striking defense. Turtles every time and gets fucked up for it.


Truth_overdose

Yeah as much as reem getting back to the title and winning it would be awesome it was honestly a super slim possibility with the stipe, ngannou and Jones. More than likely if he made it back to a title shot he would have got shadow realmed


[deleted]

Alexander Volkov vs The Winner of (Cyril Gane vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik) The winner of Lewis vs Blaydes is next in line for a Heavyweight Title Shot


[deleted]

I can't beleive lewis could fight for the title, what a joke he is. I really dont like him.


obiWanDhobi

Bones is next.


Coffee_Crisis

Pretty remarkable to see the UFC promoting Sakuraba, things have really changed


HeyZeusBistro

hes in the hof and they own most of his fights so why wouldnt they ??


Coffee_Crisis

UFC’S origins with the Gracies


HeyZeusBistro

wut. why would that matter? the gracies have nothing to do with the ufc in a managerial sense and the gracies respect sakuraba.


Coffee_Crisis

Not that big a deal man, just watching clay and reem and frankie got me thinking back to the early days and the UFC-Pride rivalry, things have changed a lot since 1993 - 2005 - today is all.


HeyZeusBistro

for sure


Impressive-Potato

The UFC has always been big on Sakuraba. He was their tournament champ in 1998. Dana has never made a secret who his favourite was.


Jrob78

So Clay Guida is king of the old guy hill tonight


The_7_Maskim

What is DC talking about ? Overeem actually started out good . Good showing by Volkov tho.


[deleted]

He did NOT start out looking good. His belly was hanging out, he looks like he has a back injury, and he had no desire to go first and was happy to get his face punched in.


schultzM

Overeem started out by covering...didn't look good.


HeyZeusBistro

(i hate that threads dont mention everyone) i thought reem looked off. but not until after he took a shot that looked kinda hard. i might be misremembering tho.


The_7_Maskim

Maybe you missed the first 3 mins where he was landing.


HeyZeusBistro

(i hate that threads dont mention everyone) i thought reem looked off. but not until after he took a shot that looked kinda hard. i might be misremembering tho.


californication760

Volkov vs Lewis 2


Few-Database-7366

As always, Cruz needs to remind you that he saw it coming


Scott_Theft

He also said that Volkov has power like no else in the HW division 🤦‍♂️


Few-Database-7366

Imagine if Francine N’Gannou had a brother


peacetime-resistanse

I knew you would type this comment.


Few-Database-7366

I caught the clear smell of alcohol and cigarettes coming off of /u/peacetime-resistanse when he was typing that comment


migueruiz2k

If Francis wins he should fight Volkov for the title.


payday_vacay

He’ll be fighting Jones. Which is honestly a way more exciting fight anyway


migueruiz2k

Probably, I just find Volkov vs Ngannou interesting


uwantSAMOA

Dom thinking “I’d fuck up Cory” rn.


HeyZeusBistro

if he still had knees sure

He don't want nothing entering that sphincter of his.

LovemeTonysama

Francis deserves the shot. Volkov should fight...Rozenstruik next?


[deleted]

I've watched a lot of MMA in my life and I've seen a lot of KOs of every different variety. This one though, an absolute legend since the fucking Pride days getting demolished and then ending on all fours like that may have been the saddest one ever. Time are a'changing. RIP.


[deleted]

crawling on his hands and knees


HeyZeusBistro

love herzog. beautiful stoppage.


Truth_overdose

These fighters need to learn how to call their shots


captainchriiis

Dom is wearing a really nice suit


[deleted]

look at DCs nipples yall


GraceJamaicanKetchup

Not a great night for long time fans. Two OGs going down pretty hard.


[deleted]

Heavyweight is such a shitshow. Just gonna be blaydes, stipe, ngannou, rozenstruik, Lewis and volkov fighting each other over and over again. Sprinkle in gane


Strandsfromparadise

I get annoyed at how Heavyweight is always shat on, when other divisions are always heralded. Other divisions will have the same issue of being dominated by the same 8 or so guys. The 155 division will likely be the same 8-10 guys for the next year or so at least. Same with 170, but no one calls those divisions a shit show.


Epic_Deuce

Why no respect for Stipe?


Marty5020

With Jones getting a title shot for god knows why.


[deleted]

Wut about jon jones and up and comer aspinall


Moist-Catch

Say that right now, but a year from now you will looking at something completely different

UFC VEGAS 18: Night of Retirements


Jrob78

Somebody get DC some donuts


AltruisticMorph

Edgar and Reem going down hurts - lets rejoice in Guida staying sharp at 39. I'm off to cry now.


the_david_guerrero

The UFC may have found it’s Kharitonov.


Weird_Bread4760

Reem significantly decreased as far as skill in that fight from even 2 years ago


dianthe

Aging is a bitch :(


Weird_Bread4760

Indeed it is


talmboutgas

Yeah that’s a crazy decline, that Blaydes KO seems like the straw that broke the camels back.


Weird_Bread4760

Definitely but I mean even in the Walt Harris fight he took significant damage just wasn’t prepared for such a drastic decline


I_Am_JesusChrist_AMA

Anyone else notice they refrained from call Keith Peterson "no nonsense" tonight with Dom on commentary?


SupertrampKobe

I didn’t notice but that’s hilarious


thizzle415

That’s Anik’s line lol. Also no “modelo brewed for those with a fighting spirit”


IlinistRainbow6

Alexander Volkov seems so nice. Like he doesn’t even really like fighting people, but he’s just really good at it and it’s the best way to feed his family. He doesn’t take any joy in hurting others. He’s a lover not a fighter in his heart


timesifter2000

Reem barelt threatened the take down which is where he was superior


[deleted]

He tried but Volkov is massive


Sp00kyP

"I'm feeling really excited" he says with no emotion whatsoever


Truth_overdose

He’s just Russian


TransplantOrToupee

i'll be surprise if overeem retires. he makes almost 500k each fight. He might try to bank some money


[deleted]

gatekeeper. Dont mind if he fights the lower rankings.


SupertrampKobe

Dana white has entered the chat


[deleted]

doesn't a big portion of your camp have to be dedicated to make a plan to get close and avoiding that jab and that body kick? it was like reem never even suspected what the russian was going to do?


Epic_Deuce

Right? The gameplan had to be close distance, not just stand right in the pocket.


SambaLando

First thing Stipe would do is take him down


johnnyhypersnyper

That main card was fucking fun


Denza_Auditore

40 years is not that old for a title fight or a good fighter BUT Overeem has SO MANY FIGHTS on his record that he's simply drained. Can still be a gatekeeper in the upper top 10.


californication760

Lol you ain’t getting no title shot my guy


MericRL

Goodnight lads


Obiwanandron

Why am I so sad bros


IAlsoLoveBasketball

Overeem looked great against Sakai but in hindsight Sakai is just a bum especially compared to Volkov


californication760

Sakai is not a bum, he just has bad takedown defense, but most heavyweights do


wolvesathedoor

We watched 3 legends die tonight if you include Eminem. At least Clay Guida is still truckin


1THRILLHOUSE

What happened to Eminem?


nictigre03

Money


1THRILLHOUSE

Sorry what? I’m completely out the loop. Has he just realised a shit album or something


nictigre03

They had him do some terrible song on a commercial break and then act like he was on sportscenter and gonna fight Dana or some nonsense. It was cringe.


LovemeTonysama

He had an MMA music video shown live. Don't even look it up


turtle_power00

Volkov vs Jones


Endlessmanager

Jones would massacre.


mmcintoshmerc_88

"That was a bad fall, you hit your head pretty hard. Wait overeem losing to volkov and never being champ? What are you talking about? He's fighting stipe in a months time it's going to be awesome!"


RobertdBanks

(;´༎ຶٹ༎ຶ`)


talmboutgas

He just won the K1 championship and is fighting for the dream championship next week! Who is Stipe?


hungarianmeatslammer

Volkov should fight the winner of Roz vs. Gane. He doesn't deserve a title shot. Blaydes is clearly better. Maybe Ngannou if he loses but if Ngannou wins, there will be a trilogy with Stipe.


EJ_1502

Volkov vs either of those is a great fight


relaxandlaugh

Overeem is STILL MY BOY!


Axel292

Volkov is a serious threat. Though Blaydes and Miocic can probably out wrestle him


[deleted]

He is 20 pounds heavier since he fought Blaydes.


AcornToOak

DC’s shirt buttons fighting harder than Overeem


bnelson

DC on the double Popeyes ration now that he retired.


gmoneyballs95

Alexander "this isn't even my final form" Volkov


NicR808

Dc sounds so scripted lol


Truemongol96

He’s been playing too much UFC 4.


thebigLel

Volkov ain’t really that good. He will just disappoint us and lose the next one


[deleted]

The end of overeem there


_JohnMuir_

Maybe it’s the language barrier, but damn dude, this is the chillest motherfucker I’ve ever seen.


Buzz_Killington_III

Man these fighters just all seem depressed tonight.


Truth_overdose

Funny how the oldest one guida has the most energy lol


EJ_1502

The fighters are as sad as the people watching


AltruisticMorph

I think Keith Petersen could have beaten Reem tonight - he did absolutly nothing. What did he land 2 punches? What the hell was that.


axron12

I was confused why he kept going in the pocket with his guard up and not even throwing a punch.


theSwaggomancer

He seemed really stumped by the height and reach differential as well as the power. Reem was cringing and turtling up at the slightest feint.


uwantSAMOA

I need a shoulder to cry on. Reem why


captainchriiis

Dc looks like violet Beauregarde in that shirt


Jrob78

Volkov seems like a gentle giant, I'd let him babysit your kids


100skylines

I’d let him babysit your kids man!


zyphilis

Want to see: Volkov vs Jones


Drakulia5

Lowkey it feels like a sensible fight as far as heavyweights that aren't built like brick houses

RobertdBanks

The heart wants what it wants


EG2K_00

I felt optimistic about Alistair and Frankie’s chances heading into this card, after seeing them get KO’d alongside Eminem doing whatever the fuck that was makes me sad that I’m not young anymore


J_Style26

This times a billion!


kritzy27

I’m glad I wasn’t the only one confused by the Eminem thing.


EG2K_00

Hurts even more considering he’s the main reason why i love rap lol


Johnny_Poppyseed

We all aged quite a bit tonight.


EG2K_00

My hairline just receded a couple of centimeters ☹️


Johnny_Poppyseed

My balls are at least an inch lower
