I keep having the Irishman's voice in my head every time I see that replay

That was not an early stoppage Wei Li, shut up. You were limp and not defending yourself after smashing your head on the canvas.

The funny bit here is that short of about 3 seconds against Andrade (in a fight Rose was definitely in control of at the time), Rose's name would belong with Valentina and Amanda over the last 4 years. Dominant knock out wins against champion level competition.

okay....so I soured on Masvidal when he came out as a maga idiot. But I'm picking him by knock out. That 1st round in the first fight that stayed on the feet has to be a concern for the Usman camp.

I say that as someone who Usman has turned into a fan. Masvidal's combination of hands and takedown D might be the only potentially bad match for Usman in the division.

Usman also got knocked down early by Gilbert Burns.

God, would this be a great night if Masvidal won. Masvidal would be everything the hardcores wished the Diaz brothers would be.

And he took some serious leather against pillow hands in his previous fight. He's there to be hit. He has an iron chin though, so maybe he can eat Masvidal's best. It's my concern though. Before he gassed in the first fight, he looked good.

Usman 1-0

Masvidal can't let Usman take him down right in the middle of the octagon with 2:30 left in a round. Usman looks good on the feet and landed the best strikes there too.

I want Usman v Colby 2. Usman's hands have jumped up multiple levels in the last year. He'll fucking kill Colby now. He won't break the jaw this time, he'll rip it off and keep it as a trophy.
