    It's a doggy dog world

    Wonder if the man in the walls can help Ferguson stay on course for Khabib

    Jacare has tested positive for COVID and is out of his fight.


    Dana is a fucking imbecile.

    What a performance from Gaethje... Holy shit! I do legitimately feel sorry for Ferg missing out on a title shot again though.

    This was one of those rare UFC moments where the loser almost feels like a bigger winner than the actual winner. Don't get me wrong...obviously the end-goal is winning that title shot. But...Ferguson came out of that fight being an even scarier dude than when he went in. You look at what he accomplished there...and it's like, what does it actually take to put that guy away? He's a scary dude. I have to imagine that Ferguson's star grew bigger than Gaethje on that night. Guy is a legend at this point. The sheer amount of damage absorbed without so much as slowing down or breathing heavy was insane. Until that leg started to go, he was fine...even after eating dozens of headshots. That was like a Steve Austin/Bret Hart Mania 13 finish...but, for real.

    I get what you're saying and definitely think some people feel that way - championing Tony's toughness. No question, he's not fucking human. But I still view Gaethje as the big winner. He looked fucking great. That's a Justin Gaethje who's putting it together and reaching the next level. Given the build that's been going into Tony for a while and how Gaethje was a replacement for Khabib... I have to think that Gaethje's stock is soaring higher than Tony's right now. Especially because of how much he beat the shit out of him.

    Gaethje vs McGregor would be mad.
