  1. Before the fight I was thinking McGregor didn’t deserve the title shot because he had never faced a top10 fighter but in this bout he shows he is a great warrior with also a good defense on the ground. Let’s see the super-fight against Jose Aldo!!!

  2. All the best fights, I’m sorry but if you think this is a better fight than Lawler vs MacDonald then I don’t know what to tell you other than get your eyesight checked. Lawler vs MacDonald is in the top 5 greatest MMA fights of all time.

    1. Hi “dazy juno”, we have seen both fights two or three times and we think that the first two rounds of Lawler vs MacDonald 2 were pretty boring (two stars), the third one was good just for the last 30 seconds, while the fourth and the finish were close to get four stars. So the average of all the rounds is not very high while in the fight McGregor vs Mendes we have seen two very entertaining rounds out of two and this is why we have chosen this bout as the best of the week.

      Anyway…you know that every user can rate the fights in a different way and we are happy to see that sometimes a lot of fans rated other bouts in a different way, because we don’t have only our mma ranking, but there is also the users’ mma ranking in which we will add the fight Lawler vs MacDonald 2 as one of the best of the year!

      Thanks for the comment and for your rating!

  3. Premature stoppage first of all! Chad was covered up and could’ve sustained for the remaining 3 seconds of the round. The ref did not need to intervene. Secondly Chad had two weeks to train lets not throw that out. A full training camp is significant to a fight no matter who you are. Even so chad was imposing his will but gassed out. They need to have a rematch.

    1. Ref’s job is not to say ‘oh there’s only a few seconds left, I’ll let him get beaten up a little more so he can make it into the next round’. Doesn’t matter if there’s a single second left, if a guy is hurt and not fighting back OR defending himself intelligently (Chad turtled, and that’s not an intelligent defence – ref’s have to step in when that happens), the ref’s job is to stop the fight. LOL at “the ref did not need to intervene” hahahaha you have NO IDEA what the ref’s job is.

  4. In my 72 years, I’ve seen a lot of fights and I have been in more than my share. But, the punishment Connor took and then come back to knock out Mendes, is one for the books of all time great fighting. It was non-stop fierce combat.
