That's the plan to beating a game Cowboy. Leg kicks and then start peppering him with your fists. Great work by Gaethje!

I still love to rewatch when Masvidal knocks Cowboy out twice lol.

Who called it? I called it.

Cowboys out of it. Don’t hold it against him. Gaethje was right to be upset. Fine with the ref keeping it going after Cowboy fell, gave him a shot but that second gap in action should have been the end, full stop.

I feel for Cowboy. He’s a helluva fighter and he’s just at the cusp of greatness. But Gaethje is a fucking terror.

Also, don’t let concussed fighters on mic in the octagon. Seriously. :(

I'm sad I didn't get more Cowboy but what a great knock out

And that top side between the legs Peruvian Necktie from Cirkunov is a thing of legend, great night

In an optimal world you'd run Tony/Khabib and Mcgregor/Gaethje on the same card and have the winners fight, but I don't think Conor would agree to not main event nor do I think he really should.

I think Gaethje is a good fight o Conor. Its who he wanted to fight apparently, this summer. Gaethje isn't really elusive, or has much defense. He hasn't really needed it. But he'll be standing right infront of Conor.

Honestly it's like action packed violent chess lol



Dunno just never watched it lol
Yeah, Ive only been really into it for a year (even trained for 6 months but quickly found out I wasnt cut out for it) but my brother has always been into it and spent years trying to get me on board. He made a lot of progress when he started appealing to my love of fighting games and made parallels between the mechanics of the two, which are surprisingly not too different lol

EDIT: My favorite fight of all time just due to the high level back and forth of the standup is Gustafsson/Jones 1, so I would highly recommend that of you havent seen it.
