Can't stand man child Ariel. Even his name is weak. You got the same name as the little mermaid guy. He has no place to ever talk about fighting. When he is pressured he doesn't fight he cries. I'm with Dana when he fired him years ago. ESPN needs to hire someone that the fans actually like and respect. This guy is considered a clown wide and far

So long as stipe still has any semblance of a chin he's about to take Francis into deep water again. Francis for all he's claimed he improved does exactly what he's done his whole career. Look at the Rozenstruik fight tell me Francis changed his game.

Dani Cormier has not the right to complain about the fact that Curtis Blaydes can not fight for the title. This has all to do with the fact that stipe and especially Daniel occupied the title for more thans 3 tears.

Does it Really Matter? Even If Curtis goes on a 10 fight win streak or gets the belt whatever, He is just gonna be keeping the title warm for Ngannou. Actually with all due respect I dont think He beats Stipe Either. Stipe is the 2nd most powerful heavyweight after Francis. Man needs to hit up Trevor Wittman or something. Takedowns and wrestling are great but you need sharp hands/striking if you wanna threaten the Champion

Jones wants winner of Stipe and Francis...However, you need to book the Trilogy if Francis wins. That means the 3rd fight in 2021 and Jones challenges in March 2022? Jones should either fight Izzy after he claims his belt or fight the winner of Blades/Lewis as a welcome to the division. It won't happen because UFC don't care about the rankings or anything, it's about money fights.

I dont thnk UFC would be interested in doing another Ngannou/blaydes fight right now. Ngannou beat him twice already. So blaydes should pray Stipe wins cause UFC will be more likely to do Blaydes/Stipe

They’re both so young in the sport and dominant. I almost guarantee they’ll fight again at some point. I think Blaydes will handily defend his spot just behind Franic and Stipe.

I cant get excited anymore for such heavy weights. They gas out in half a round and it often doesnt seem technical enough for my taste. Just whaling and hoping to land one heavy punch and its over. At least john jones and stipe show a variety of skills in there. And i really like Lewis as a personality. But at this point fly weights are more entertaining to watch.

@Ettore Bugatti You don’t really know what you’re talking about. He absolutely mailed Tyron Woodley and RDA. There was nothing boring about those performances. You just don’t understand grappling, the transitions and scrambles in the RDA fight were crazy and it’s incredible to think he was able to do that for five rounds. That fight against RDA was so impressive that he leapfrogged Colby and was handpicked by Dana to take out Woodley. Before the RDA fight he boxed up and dropped Demian Maia. I think you’re just another uneducated bandwagon fan.

@X Football There are bunch of fighters that had at least 1 boring fight. But 1 boring fight doesn't make you a boring fighter like for example the hate that Adesanya was getting because of his fight with Romero. But Usman's style of fighting is boring. Like i said it's not about the wrestling, it's about his style, and he has very boring style of fighting which is effective and it wins him the fights, but it's not entertaining to watch.

@Hem Karki in my opinion a good journalist is someone who is unbiased, is consistent with all fighters he covers, doesn't try to make up false stories etc. Helwani is terrible at all 3, so I don't rate him. He used to be the best now he's a fanboy who doesn't give a shot about the sport. I rate John Morgan, Okamoto, Waggenheim, Raimondi, Luke Thomas, Brian Campbell, Andrew Bronstener etc.

@Christopher McMillan Dc is all about hyping fighter. He never really gives a true breakdown. Ariel is loyal to Conor because he has history with conor and irish fans from back in the day.. So he might be biased on that but he is withoit the doubt best journalist in mma so far.

@Christopher McMillan He is really not. He really talks nonsense sometimes. His breakdown of the fights are just hyping the fights. I stopped listening to his breakdown of the fights when he said that "Paulo Costa is as much skilled as Adesanya". It was literally the dumbest thing i ever heard. Even on paper he is not even close to Adesanya and of course fight showed that aswell.
