    Man, that KO was sweet! Big win for Lawlor! I love it!

  2. Nuitari X says:

    Does a zombie know what to do with that kind of money? Great fight.

  3. Nick says:

    Great night of fights. Zombie is a fucking monster. No pun intended.

  4. Thurgood Jenkins says:

    I wish Dana would’ve thrown Maldonado and Poprajak at least $20K apiece because that was an awesome fight too. But an amazing main event.

    • Chris says:

      Igor lose da fight imo

      • Thurgood Jenkins says:

        It was extremely close. I had Poprajac winning the first and Maldonado winning the third, but the second was up in the air. I dunno how the one judge scored it 30-27 though.

      • Numba1Ghani says:

        Fuck yea I thought Maldonado did work on Pokrajac the entire fight. Pokrajac is gona be pissing and shitting straight blood for weeks from those brutal body shots and he got rocked a few times with clean hooks. Those knees Pokrajac landed were big but Maldonado ate them for breakfast like he ate Kingsburys knees and answered back with far more damaging blows.

        IMO Maldonado has been robbed in his last 2 fights in the UFC by terrible judges.

        Cerrone, Jung, Dos Anjos, and Lawlor did work tho.

        • Numba1Ghani says:

          Yves Jabouin also destroyed Jeff Hougland that was some sick striking

          Bas Rutten is gona be happy about all those liver shots tonight

  5. Sick Brah says:

    Was a fucking sick fight. Zombie showed it all.

  6. Nuitari X says:

    Zombie is a great fighter but if he intends to take on aldo, he’s gonna need to work on his cardio. His transitions and his heart really showed tonight. A smart fighter, he’s definitely got some Braaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnssssss!!!!. Sorry I couldn’t resist.

    • Bobby Johnson says:

      I was thinking the same thing, but I recall hearing it mentioned that he had a hard weight cut so maybe that explains the fatigue. Regardless, I think Aldo v. Jung would be a great matchup for sure!

  7. John M says:

    Love the Zombie!

  8. GRT 3000 says:

    Sheeeit! Sounds like an awesome card and I missed it….crap.

  9. tim says:

    keep it up zombie

  10. Ryan kelly says:

    Zombie killed it like he is supposed to good fucking job get r dun so many people counted him out of this fight except for me kid is tough !!!!

    • Elias654 says:

      R. Kelly-

      You weren’t the only person that didn’t count him out. My boy and I were going for him all the way and to top it off he made me 100 bucks..

  11. monkey juice says:

    Zomby should stay away from aldo. Bad for his career. Truthfully he kinda sucks…

    • Elias654 says:


      Maybe, he wouldn’t beat Aldo but for you to say that Zombie sucks then you must either have not seen him fight, not know anything about MMA, or you’re just an outright hater..

      Zombie has good stand up, submissions, ground n pound, take downs, and take down defense. He is actually the best challenger out there at 145 for Aldo, he would be his toughest foe, and i would give him a decent chance at the upset.

      The only major issue with Zombie is his cardio and i don’t think that Aldo has the best cardio himself.

  12. Truthfully says:

    It wouldn’t be better for his career, he just needs to work on his cardio and tune up his game a bit more and then I see him as one of Aldo’s toughest opponents, his ground game is excellent his stand up is improving each fight plus he’s got a hell of a chin on him, I got him for the upset if they were to fight.

  13. kaika808 says:

    Zombie exciting to watch but nowhere near ready for Aldo .. Good chin but his flat footed stand up going to get his legs murdered than another setup for a nasty head kick lights out for the zombie..

  14. Bjj BB says:

    @ Flex Juice Monkey- LMMFAO!! That sounds sooo wrong but u had me cdfu!!

  15. Flex juice monkey says:

    Troll…ha. I’m so far ahead of you…. You fucking bag licking kimchee sippers. Dana white nut munchers. Zombie is fun, not a contender. Fucking Koreans…

    • James Kim says:

      Yet Koreans are the only Asians in the UFC that are even close to a title contention at this time. BJ has Korean in him and Benson is half Korean. Also seeing that your dumbass even knows what kimchee is the popularity of the food must have increased tremendously. Even Obama loves kimchee. I’m Korean and I’m proud to say it. Unlike you who likes to be racist online and a coward.

  16. Mike says:

    Fjm must be Frankie Edgar hatin on Koreans like that haha

  17. parker says:

    Lawlor looked good, I’d like to see him mayhem, now that would be interesting!

  18. DMAC says:

    Zombie is a true martial artist. He’s a complete fighter that is down to take the fight anywhere while consistently trying to finish. Hes one of my favorite fighter now, and I had to order the walk out shirt. Bad motherfucker right there with a complete game. I think he can compete with Aldo 100%!!!!!

  19. Xaninho says:

    Sick pace, sick techniques from both sides…That was a great fight! I jumped up from my couch when Zombie rolled through that takedown and ended up in full mount!

    The whole card delivered fireworks.

    Anik and Florian are boring though..

    • mean170 says:

      Aren’t they though. Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg would have been going nuts over that scramble with Jung attempting every submission in the book. I was never a fan of Florian as a fighter and i hate him more so as an announcer.

    • DMAC says:

      Anik is horrible. Kenny sounds to much like Anik IMO. I don’t really care to hear someone call a fight that doesn’t know what’s going on from first hand experience (couldn’t tell if it was Anik or Kenfo). Post fight interviews were awkward to. Rogan’s shoes are too big to fill.
