    UFC: Next UFC Fight Card

    Figured I'd make a thread.

    Lomachenko vs Lopez on ESPN.

    Loma is #2 Pound for pound right now if you are unfamiliar.

    Loma showing why he's considered world class now. Too late though? I have it at 6-4 Lopez

    Absolutely insane scoring from the judges. Either way Loma sat back for way too long.

    Lightwork for Khabib. Shame he's retiring.
    Mma needs a dynastic type to defend the belt repeatedly, not a rat who runs like Mcgregor.
    Be interesting to see if someone can fill that void.

    Khabib just too good.

    Wonder if we get winner of Conor/Porier vs Gaethje for the belt now.

    Was able to find the fight on youtube without a spoiling title. End of an era.

    Gaethje was a decent wrestler, but he was only once an all-American as a D1 wrestler, and barely. Just funny to see that experience advertised when Nurmagomedov is a world class submission wrestler who probably gets regular training with world class freestyle and submission wrestlers.

    Not to put down Nurmagomedov’s accomplishments. Just don’t feel like he got a worthy opponent in his career. Bunch of strong competitors, but no one in his tier.

    Ferguson would have been an interesting opponent.

    Eh, I think there was some optimism in his instincts and weird style. He’s just too stupid, I think, for there to have been much of a realistic chance for him.

    He fought like a moron vs Gaethje, no argument there.

    But Fergeson’s striking although unique and hard to prepare for, would have wound up on his back against Khabib, when DC openly admits Khabib would take him down at will and hold him there that’s a HW who is a great wrestler in his own right, I just never saw a way Fergeson could win save a “punchers chance” type KO

    Ferguson is a lanky guy though with tremendous BJJ and insane cardio. He's great from his back, he's finished guys before from that position. If Khabib made the same mistake on the ground that he did against Porier, Tony would have capitalized. It's a damn shame that fight fell through so many times.

    Cormier is pretty good. He probably would've won NCAAs if he hadn't run into Cael "159-0" Sanderson. His best wrestling accomplishment was a 3rd place finish at the 2007 World Championships, which is the highest stage of competition for freestyle. I question his statement about Nurmagomedov "taking him down at will" even at his age. The weight difference is immense and as you said, Cormier is a premier wrestling talent.

    I’m sure there was some showmanship in it when DC was talking about after all they’re really close

    You have a very fair point, Tony does have some of the most impressive cardio in the sport and is a really good BJJ player
