Honest of them to admit it was a non-event nothing match. Not sure what they are going to do with Nunes, she's right now clearly heads above everyone else.

You have to run the Schevchenko rematch if she fucks up Andrade like I think she will. That's it. Nothing else.

Well at least Nunes gets it done quickly and we don't have three five-round title fights.

Here's hoping I get to sleep sooner.

Amanda Nunes might be the first time I believe a UFC fighter will retire as champion.. But if you keep fighting long enough, you will lose.

Khabib?  GSP?

GSP lost to Serra at UFC 69. Khabib I can see unless he just decides to randomly move up in weight against a guy who is so much bigger than him.

We'll see if Khabib stays retired. 

Even if he comes back, it's hard to see anyone at 155 beating him.

I think I lost track of what we were discussing. I thought it was 'retire as champion'.

Doesn't matter because I'm hyped for this next one.

They have to start booking Nunes in gauntlet matches or something. 

The funny thing is I felt that watching the Claressa Shields fight last night. And Shields has been whooping on chicks since she was in high school. 

It's crazy that unless it's the lower weight class (in boxing, 130-135 and below and MMA 125 and below), the disparity between the tippity top of the divisions and the rest is insane. It makes me believe the optimum weight for female fighters in combat sports is around 130 pounds. Once you get over that, it's slim pickings.

(But Kevin Randleman).

The only thing that isn't so bad should Blachowicz win, I don't have to hear "champ champ" for a while longer. And with it sounding like they could possibly just shutter the 145 lbs women's division, maybe not for a very long time.

This fight has not been great to watch. I don't know what I expected but I guess I should not be surprised. 

Anyway, Happy Birthday @The Natural! Hope you can get some sleep in after this.

Happy birthday, Natural. Again, at least the prelims had some really good competitive fights. 

The other thing is the Jon Jones tweet coming.

Cheers, @Setsuna. Appreciate the Happy Birthday wishes and hoping I get some sleep. Need it. Energy exhausted.
