    ‘contest’ should be ‘contact’

    while ur at it, bet better reporting / reporters / writers

    ditch ur fan boys that do it for free. go big. be real.

    • charles says:

      california grown-

      it’s “you’re”, not “ur”.

      also, i believe you meant “get better reporting”, not “bet better…”

      perhaps you should get an editor before you post next time.

  2. Yo Daddy says:

    That eye poke on Phillipou was brutal

  3. B-rad says:

    Well, anderson said he was gonna break him up, but all he got was his nose! That is without a doubt the least painful broken bone iv ever had and i broke mine real bad when i first started boxing…had a crooked ass nose for my Senior Picture XD

  4. Leefal says:

    Chael was on top of Anderson for a whole 4:50, and did nothing, not even a cut.
    Think it took him about 20 minutes to draw a bit of blood the first time.
    Then again, I shouldn’t be surprised by how little damage ear slapping does.

    If Chael fought on the ground like Weidman or even Munoz, he’d probably be 2 time champ.
    But even his fighting style is annoying, and inevitably ineffectual.
