I saw everything up til the Main Event when my stream messed up, and this other one wouldn't even load.

From what I saw, pretty good PPV honestly. That Holm vs Tate fight was pretty damn amazing. Gotta give props to Holly, she never tapped out and went down fighting like a champion, gotta respect someone who rather pass out than tap out. I for one hope them two have another fight down the road.

I'm 50 50 on that. Tapping out is smart when you're 100% done, which Holm was. Nothing wrong with tapping out at all, saves your body to fight another day. On the other hand, it is pretty badass to just not straight up tap out. Shows a lot of heart and mental toughness.

That's pretty true, when you're done, you're done. Still was like you said pretty badass just to be like nah I'm not giving up screw that. My favorite part of it was them last punches she threw before just going out. Wonder if that was just some natural reaction or what, because it surely wasn't to get Tate off her or anything.

Holm not tapping wasn't any decision by her. The errant punches showed that.

She was winning the fight too, mental error and not working the hands before trying to throw Tate off was the end.

Connor bit off more than he could chew, size matters.

He got beat by a journeymen, and this guy was hinting at facing Robbie Lawler 8D

Yeah, I mean anybody who's viewed my signature knew that I was high on Conor McGregor but most certainly I knew he wasn't unbeatable. His ground game needs a lot of work, the fact that he tapped so quicky and flattened out as quickly as he did shows a clear lack of experience (says a blue belt btw, if anybody's wondering.) Even keeping in mind that MMA is a whole different game from BJJ, having a ground game is just as important as having flashy stand up like he has... the speed on Conor... damn.

And I don't give a f**k what anybody says, GSP > All.

Dana white is the worst.....if Vince said half the shit he did, the neckbeards who cover this would be dawning hoods and brandishing ropes
