    I might as well. I’ve been getting injured more often than him lately

    Not flexible enough to do that anymore

    I agree. I hated that fight specially because Curtis was going to blanket Volkov.

    Good. Didn't care for the Volkov fight. I think both those guys have earned their title shots. Curtis is hurt, so Volkov can have his shot first. Allowing those 2 title fights to take place allows for another contender to emerge in the mean time (I have a feeling it's going to be Big Pretty). The HW division is actually healthy right now. Derailing contenders isn't a good idea.

    Could be a high ankle sprain which is terrible.

    That ain’t no damn ankle. That’s a cankle. And it was a cankle before the sprain as well. Eat less.

    Sprained ankles vary in severity. When I was 17, I sprained my ankle and was alright after 3 weeks. I had a severe sprain in my twenties and the initial healing took 6 weeks and it took me over half a year to feel 100% on it.

    Regardless of that, I am sure Blaydes is not actually afraid of fighting Volkov - it's one of his easiest matchups. He doesn't wants to fight Volkov, because he actually wants to get a title shot and the only exception he takes is the option to avenge his loss to Francis. Makes perfect sense, no ducking here.

    He trains to fight, not to have a beach bod. Think about that the next time you compare your Soulcycling ass to a fighter.

    I think Blaydes can take Volkov. But why kill off tep rising prospects.

    Glad we can all agree that the TS is a fucking moron.

    Sherdog... you're making me proud tonight. Almost brings a God damn tear to my eye.
