    Daniel Cormier isn't an everyman. Daniel Cormier is your dad. The dude had a hurt back and then took a nap to see how it'll heal! That's a dad if ever I heard of one.

    Ant going full fanboy weirdo for DC here. DC's 2018 best year run for any fighter? C'mon bruh!

    Jon Jones or Shogun are in the mix.

    Stipe is a superb win. Ozdemir and Lewis are great wins, but not the stuff that creates GOAT-years.

    The division change is the X factor.

    I still have Joe Rogan calling Herb Dean the "gold standard" of MMA refereeing burnt into my eardrum.

    Burnt in like a trauma.

    Herb Dean is the Mario Yamasaki of Dan Miragliottas.

    Let's not act like Brunson is on the level of Jacare, Rockhold or Romero.

    Jacare was totally perplexed by Whittaker's striking. Izzy can replicate that.

    I almost want to ask Ant a question about race in the UFC but I don't want the guy to lose his job.

    Yoel's game is entirely about preserving cardio. Hence the low work-rate -- and the low amount of wrestling.

    I'm torn between being ecstatic that my question was answered... and rage that they don't know if Deiveson Figueiredo will smash!:p

    Rogan's enemy = Ice

    Ant's enemy = Lights

    RDA taking Colby down doesn't bode well for him in a fight vs Askren.

    They tried it -- because they got at least half a mil for trying it!
