    Seems like there's a high profile boxing match tonight. Anthony Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz Jr.

    It's in NY, I'd have gone if I had known ahead of time and could get great seats for a reasonable price. (Which is impossible in NY.)

    It'll be an absolutely one sided battering.

    I'm having flashbacks to Lewis vs Rahman. Joshua should never have been that poor, what the actual hell was that?

    Rakic is Crocop 2.0

    What a gentleman, he did the Cross for Manuva before the fight.

    UFC 239 is tonight.

    Any good boxing matches coming up? I'm filling out my calendar and I want to schedule it if there are.

    Decent headliners on the card, shame about Ngannou/Dos Santos getting moved to last week.

    As for boxing, nothing really excites me on the horizon. Few lesser title bouts and former contenders against nobodies, nothing that I'd tune into without someone really selling me on it.

    That Askren KO was kinda hilarious. Dude basically served his head up for the knee.

    Last night:

    I can't believe Masvidal won so quickly. I honestly expected Aslren to win in a fat wrestling match.

    The women's comain event was kind of boring. I thought it was stopped early, but I had to wake up at 4:30 AM to drop my parents off at the airport so God bless.

    I thought Tiago won rounds 1, 2, and Jon Jones won rounds 3, 4. Round 5 is a toss up, I could see it going either way. Tiago is pretty amazing to fight with what looked like a bad injury.

    I think Tiago just had a strategy (no grappling) and a body type that was hard for Jon to deal with. If Tiagos knee didn't pop out at the first round I'd say he'd have won easily.

    I think it's crazier that he was practicing that opening knee as a drill, 100% intending to use it to lay him out and it worked flawlessly. Has Askren historically been open to high knees that he knew this or just fucking angry and wanted to smash him with cockiness?

    Yeah that Jones fight I think Jones is slightly ahead of Santos, even Dana thinks too. Santos need to completely dominate Jones in order to win the match.

    I really wanted to see the rematch if possible, with a healthy knee Santos.

    Askren instinctively goes for the double leg when they get close. It’ll be interesting to see his next fight.
