  1. If your game plan revolves around pretending to be hurt and catching your opponent, you probably don't stand much of a chance.
  2. Kevin Holland volunteered and Vettori accepted but I don't think it is official.
  3. Isn't that somewhat misleading? That would make Conor 2-0 in fights that go the distance which isn't necessarily a big sample size. Poirier also looks better and more durable at 155 than he did at 145. I think not having to cut as much went a long way. With that said, I felt Poirier was a good value bet but if Conor wins early via KO I wouldn't be surprised.
  4. Loooong way to go for him but with Glory inactive I think he is seeing dollar signs should he ever make it to the level of contender. Beat a few scrubs in LFA then head to UFC, beat a couple gatekeepers, and a couple top ten guys and then you market a big title fight with Adesanya as the "guy who beat him." Again, still a looong way to go.
  5. I think Holm is still grandfathering in eyeballs, even if it is just people who watch her fights because she is "the girl who knocked out Ronda Rousey."
  6. We have Briedis vs Dorticos for the IBF cruiser belt this afternoon, too. Airing from Germany. Entrances will probably be circa 4PM EST
  7. Man, WTF @ these scores; I had Ugas winning every round.
  8. I also heard that Zabit wouldn't be able to get into the country but this sucks either way.
  9. Some other recent and notable kickboxers turned MMA fighters that I can think of are: Raymond Daniels (Bellator) Joe Schilling (Bellator) Antonina Shevchenko Van Roosmalen has yet to fight MMA since his recent announcement but I'd say he is probably the most significant since Izzy to make the switch.
  10. I would think it has to be Adesanya. Again, it depends on what you call high profile, but Adesanya had fought in Glory (probably still the most recognizable org in KB despite their recent financial troubles) and was a definite top 10 (if not, top 5) fighter in his class by the time he took up MMA. I don't think he was that well known by "casuals" but nowadays, not many kickboxers are so it is hard to make a comparison.
