Yeah, should not surprise anyone.
I don't think any of the Embedded stuff about him, shot in his village, had a female actually talk (or even seen?).
No wife's, no daughters.
Just like his "view" when it comes to slapping folks AFTER a fight, it's an interesting question for everyone to ponder themselves how much
you can root for a guy that is so far away from a standard western open mind.

But I guess you could say the same about a guy like Colby. The white bigot version.

Both trash. You could say Colby is playing the part of the heel for the sake of ratings, but he still seems like a piece of garbage.

I think the point that a lot of people missed, particularly on the off-topic section thread about the post-fight melee, that 'Khabib-Good, Conor-Bad' is too simplistic a view to take on their feud.

Sometimes quite often there are no good guys, and taking one particular side will just make you look like an ass.


Also, fuck Colby.

This is such a cop-out answer. Of course Rachael is gonna say it's fine, does he really think a relatively unknown (4-4) female fighter is going to have the confidence to tell the boss of a multi-billionaire dollar company how to organise his events?


He also couldn't help but shit on Tyron again in this video, the Trump-loving bald fuck.

Max looked great at the weigh ins. I think he wins a dominant decision or gets a late tko.

I'm not able to watch it tomorrow but I hope Holloway wins. I like them both but more a fan of Holloway's fighting style.

Max as underdog? Gonna take all my strength not to put down a major bet on him to win. Is just a class above Ortega if he is anywhere near his best.

Max's CV speaks for itself really, I guess a lot of people are counting on the fight going to the ground at some point over the 5 rounds where Ortega has the supremacy but I'm not sure it'll get that far; Max's striking is so good now that, for example, I think if he rematched Conor at Featherweight, he'd win.

I wouldn't be sure he does think that, he's probably very aware of the power dynamic but it's convenient for him to ignore it or pretend it doesn't exist.

Max looked good.

I think not only will Max win, but he will make it look easy. Ortega grabbing victory from the jaws of defeat is great but I can't bet on the guy who was losing a striking match with Clay Guida to beat one of the best strikers in the UFC.

The guy can't wrestle to set up his subs.
He has power but is an average striker.
I have no idea how he could be the favorite.

Yeah, I’m pretty close to betting some cash on a Holloway TKO victory.

It's absolutely absurd that Max is the underdog. I'm really tempted to some money on him just because of how off the odds are.

This feels kinda like Khabib vs Conor in that Max by all rights should dominate but Ortega has that ability to finish the fight out of thin air.

Likely scenario is Max puts on a clinic and wins via TKO.

Um Ortega pieced Edgar in his last fight. People acting like this dude isn’t completely growing each fight.

Dude is dangerous everywhere at any time. You can’t read him at all. Holloway got tagged up by past his prime Aldo quite a bit, dudes tank just ran out at some point and couldn’t keep up with Max.

Should be a great fight.

Yeah, that Edgar finish sold me. Ortega is scary and I think he'll win, though I can't say if by finish or decision.

Interesting fight for Cerrone to take. Hernandez has looked good in his wins of Dariush and Aubin-Mercier, but he's still kind of unknown. Maybe a more recognizable opponent pulled out?

Surprised Holloway is the underdog. No betting tonight for me but if I was, it'd be all on Max.

Should be a great scrap. Love both guys and Ortega is a really good dude but I don't see him taking the belt off Max tonight. I see him winning a vacant 145 title over Moicano/Edgar once Max moves to 155 though.

As much as I love Joanna, Valentina will be too much for her imo. The size difference and skill gap is pretty big.

I have some family obligations this morning but hope I can make it in time for the main.

I think Holloway takes it but I'm looking forward to a great fight either way.

Hope Valentina gives JJ a beating.

Anders is seriously trash for not finishing this already. 3 big opportunities anyone in the top 5 would have ended the fight with and he just kind of whiffed it.

Anders is slow as fuck.

Had Elias rocked for 2 minutes in round 2, didn't get the finish.

Round 3, a clearly gassed Elias is still too fast for him.

This dude has no future beside being fed to up and comers..

I agree although you gotta cut him some slack considering the beating he took to Santos just a couple of months ago. Shouldn't have taken a fight so soon.

Elias Theodorou has got to be the worst fighter with the best record I've ever seen.

Dude is somehow 16-2
