    One big thing these fighters and even fans just don't get. You don't have to trash talk but you do have to promote yourself. That has been in combat sports since day one. So as Chael says you use your mic time to your advantage. Call out your next opponents but do it being yourself.

    Gregor is such a cool guy; I felt bad seeing him lose like that. That said, Kevin Lee is one of the most likeable guys in the division, and I'm glad to see him finally putting it together again. I'd like to see Gregor get a good fight next though.. Barboza, Al, or Pettis all make sense.

    Who cares. Chael sonnen is the smarter version of tito ortiz.
    Not saying much.

  • Verbalised Resonance

    Must be easy being a UFC "journo" when you have the UFC feeding you everything you need.... bet you 2 little benders are on the UFC payroll as well as your outlet. Brett and Ariel are the embodiment of everything that is wrong with todays "journalism". Drama merchant whores, hope 1 of the fighters punches both your fkn faces in.

    Turn the cereal call out into a meme. People are already on your side because you have a good disposition and seem very genuine. So keep making “bad callouts” over a bowl of dry cereal, and the MMA community will eat it up. 👌

    Dude is stepping outside his comfort zone. Figuring out what does and doesn't work. Success doesn't come without failure. Hats off to him for not allowing himself to become complacent, despite being uncomfortable. That's something I can get behind. He has the talent, and the game now, includes theatrics. He's trying to be proactive with that. Hats off to you, buddy. At least you recognize that it's uncomfortable for you, but you blaze forward.

      Астральный План really? I can’t help but think that’s inaccurate based on his statements after the fight. He seems to understand getting knocked out is just part of the game...but I’ll definitely be on the lookout for any new info

      I know right. I heard his mom watched the fight and was so horrified by the knockout she convinced him to quit mma. Supposedly he's announcing his retirement via Twitter this Friday (tomorrow).

    All of these "We don't have fighters like this in the UFC" comments are funny. We have a LOT of fighters like this in the UFC, you must only be paying attention to them because the over the too gimmick fighters get all of it.
