What an absolutely incredible card we had in Vegas this weekend for UFC 239. There were prospects, knockouts, and incredible skills all displayed throughout the night. Here are my thoughts on all the action.
- Edmen Shahbazyan looks like a future champion in the Middleweight divison.
2. Song Yadong might have the most power in the 135 pound division and will be a very valuable asset for the UFC moving forward in China.
3. Luke Rockhold really should think about retiring after another brutal knockout at the hands of Jan Blachowicz.
4. JORGE MASVIDAL GIVING BEN ASKREN THE FULL MGM BUFFET! GIVE THIS MAN A TITLE SHOT PLEASE DANA!
5. Amanda Nunes is the Female G.O.A.T and after Saturday seems like a true superstar. She knocked out Holly Holm with the Holly head kick, bringing back shades of when Gabriel Gonzaga Cro Copped Cro Cop.
I really do not know who is going to beat Amanda, and I think she will hold the belts in both divisions if she wants to for a long time.
6. Jon Jones showed why he is the greatest fighter of all time with a methodic performance against extremely game Thiago Santos. Santos fought on one leg after blowing out his whole knee and still made this a split decision. Jones showed championship mettle and got the job done though. This is just a brutal sport though…
I hope everyone enjoyed the barbaric human cockfighting and we have another card to preview later this week!
