  1. Hopefully, back to middleweight. Maybe I'm wrong since it's just one fight in the division, but I don't see him having much success at light heavyweight. If this was 205 from a few years ago, I would say he should stay. Not now.
  2. Even Fitzgerald was baffled by Bisping saying Jacare was winning the fight. There wasn't a whole lot to pick from. Yeah, like I said, it's going to be tough sledding trying to get these guys down. Jacare isn't going to be able to muscle these guys down like he did with Tim Boetsch or a Chris Camozzi. I also didn't like his corner telling him he was up three rounds to none. That was as bad as the fight itself. It's just like Woodley vs. Maia. At some point, you gotta change it up after scoring ZERO takedowns. The cellphone waving thing reminds me of the backdrop Jennifer Lopez was performing in front of at the end of the film Selena. Now, I'm even sadder.
  3. The one thing about these ESPN/ESPN+ cards versus the FS1 era is that this card in Brazil would have ended a quarter to midnight EST if this was on FS1. Going back and forth to the desk added so much downtime.
  4. He tried to rally back for a minute or so, and Krause doesn't have a history of having the best chin either going back to his days when he wasn't even good enough for TUF. However, Krause just soldiered through and landed a big right hand which it seemed like he was going to land eventually anyway.
  5. Given the lack of success for Fox movies under Disney, probably not a good thing.
  6. The King's Man has been moved from February to September 18, 2020. Ridley Scott's The Last Duel has been greenlit and is set to be released on Christmas Day 2020.
  7. Silva de Andrade put the screws to Barao. Pretty sure that's it for Barao. With his ATT connection, he will probably end up in PFL.
  8. My fear with Jacare is if you remember his Strikeforce/DREAM days when he went to X-Gym to train under Rogerio Camoes (the giant black guy who is always with Anderson Silva at the weigh-ins), I thought he was carrying too much muscle then. Jacare and Feijao were walking around looking like a mini Brazilian version of Todd Champion and Firebreaker Chip. In the Whittaker fight and other fights where he couldn't dominate, he was sucking wind hard. I think the move to Orlando and adjusting to living here along with slimming down helped out his cardio a lot. While I think Jacare will have a much easier time at 205 than Weidman and Rockhold because he isn't as fatally flawed as those two guys, unless he's facing an OSP or someone with little to no ground game which is becoming rarer these days in MMA, those crucial takedowns he needs late are going to be much tougher to come by because guys are naturally bigger. While I'm sure he is use to training with bigger guys (I mean Feijao was as big as a house back then pre-USADA), it's much different in a live fight. It also doesn't help that Błachowicz is very well rounded and besides the Corey Anderson fight years back, never really got dominated on the ground. So if Jacare gets him down, he has to keep him down which is a lot to ask. He either has to do that or force Błachowicz to take a risk he doesn't have to like Marreta did back in February. As for the rest of the card, Massaranduba vs. Bobby Green should be a banger. James Krause never has a boring fight really, and Sergio Moraes either wins big or loses big. Even though Silva de Andrade is not a natural featherweight, that's still a tough matchup for Barao to get back on track especially the Barao we've seen lately. Warlley Alves vs. Randy Brown should be at least decent. At the weigh-ins, Brown looked about a foot taller than Warlley. I'm intrigued in the storyline of can Ariane Lipski finally get into the UFC win column. She has potential but there is concern of whether or not she can compete at this level. She has a late replacement opponent so it's in her favor tonight. I'm not sure if I'm sold on Markus Perez (Joker makeup at the weigh-ins notwithstanding). He seems like a bigger version of Rony Jason and Godofredo Pepey in the earlier days of these Brazilian cards where they feel compelled to get him wins just as a local favorite. I know he has fought a pretty decent amount outside Brazil but he doesn't strike me as a real one to watch right now. He's also a Sao Paulo guy so he will have a lot of support for this card. Speaking of kill or be killed like I was talking about with Sergio Moraes, that is pretty much the M.O. of Paul Craig. Shogun is either going to knock his head into the fifth row or we will see another comeback submission from Paul Craig. Jared Gordon is a pretty soft touch for a ranked guy like Do Bronx, but then again, Do Bronx is another guy from Sao Paulo. So expect a night of many showcases.
  9. There would be like 2 or 3 of those in the Fox days even when they were adding more cards. It would probably be only one week if Thanksgiving wasn't the very next week.
  10. @Hail Sabin @DreamBroken I've updated the template to reflect all the changes made to tonight's LFA 78 card.
  11. Two changes to report: On the LFA card, the Cowan vs. Mauldin fight is off due to Cowan being hospitalized for a bad weight cut. On the UFC Sao Paulo card, Isabella de Pádua is replacing Veronica Macedo against Ariane Lipski.
  12. This is going to be like Heenan always calling Ray Traylor Bossman no matter the gimmick WCW gave him.
  13. BTW, since Black Adam is coming out 12/22/2021, I'm assuming Sherlock Holmes 3 is being moved off that date as it's about start production in a couple months. That probably means it may come out way sooner depending on how the post production goes.
  14. So he's playing Ben Affleck. ...I'm so sorry.
  15. Some of the wins (or gifts) Leonard Garcia got are on par with some of the worst boxing robberies.
