Is it one of those exhibition thingies?

Yeah it'll be a farce 

But it's going in over 250million houses as part of your subscription

They'll have it all soon enough

I expected Joshua to win and he did. I hope this puts an end to these circus's. Ngannou shouldn't even be in a ring at this level. This farce will put Joshua in a good position to fight the winner of the Fury/Usyk fight. That in itself is a joke. Joshua is a modern day version of Frank Bruno.

That's a bit unfair on Frank 😁

the biggest loser was UFC

time that circus was seen for what it is

Why? 

He's not even in the UFC, they released him, he's with PFL under a million pound contract. 

Anyway, it was a farce, Joshua, chucked straight punches through his guard, no setup or anything. 

Can't have people saying he's back, he literally hit a punch a bag

The biggest and worst story of the night was Ball not winning.

Absolute corruption. He won 8 rounds on the bounce, scored 2 knock downs and didn't let up once in all out attack.

Bent as fuck.

There’s loads of people upset and pissed off with this, but why? It is what it is, there’s no title involved it’s just a bit of entertainment. Good luck to them both.

Who said hes back

I just said it shows your mates who like a bit of touching and rolling about on the floor are a bit shit and nowhere near the level of a top 10 boxer

I knew that anyway

That was the whole point of MMA though. To understand which fighting style works best when they fight under the same rule set. 

And it became pretty obvious quite quickly that boxers didn't fair very well. It was the wrestlers, the grapplers and the Ju Jitsu fighters that invariably came out on top. 

The MMA fighters have evolved now to the point where they can do a bit of everything. But most of the successful ones tend to have a solid ground game. 

I know who I'd be backing if Jon Jones or Tom Aspinall fought Tyson Fury or AJ if it wasn't boxing rules. I'd be very surprised if the boxer made it through one round. 

And I enjoy both sports......

When are we going to get a decent fight?

I remember back when I was in my teens and twenties we had loads of decent fights with Benn, Eubank, Collins, Naz, Calzaghe, Khan, Hatton, Lewis, etc

Thats just Brits, there were loads of US and other fighters that were good.

Seems things have really gone shite? Or maybe my interest isn't the same with PPV and no boxing on the Beeb and ITV anymore?

Anyone see UFC 300 on Saturday? 

Gaethje vs Holloway in a fight for the ages. Absolutely superb stuff and one of the most iconic knockouts you'll ever see in sports as far as I'm concerned. The whole room I was in were on their feet. 

And the Perreira doing his cold as ice thing. 

Leaving boxing for dead these lads! 👏👏👏
