    Amazing back and forth action. A FOTY candidate.

  • Jose Hinojosa

    Fight of the year.

    Warriors! Laying it all on the line til you cant even defend yourself. Amazing stuff from these guys. I wish all fighters had the heart of Gaethje. Imagine the fights we could see. What he lacks in pure speed and power he clearly makes up for in heart! Feel bad for Johnson since he was on a good run until his most recent fights. Id like to see him against a guy he can have a good win against in his next fight. Gaethje might want to take about 6 months to recover and comeback and get a top 10 again and see where he is after that. The lightweight division is wide open imo. Conner is nowhere to be found. All the contenders beat themselves. A streak of wins and you got a shot. Hard to see it all going that way but it will be fun to watch and see for sure!

      yeah but after Conor gets a boxing lesson from the master, no one will be able to avoid his shots… if he can even come close to touching Floyd he will hit clean anyone in the UFC with ease. Great fight, entertaining but I wouldn’t want to see all fighters fight this way, because their careers just wouldn’t last. Justin reminds me Auturo Gatti

    Brilliant fight. Comeback of the year.
