UFC 207
Nunes v. Rousey?

    will watch the prelims. In my opinion watching Rousey throw an arm bar is not worth $75. I like Nunes though I don't think she has enough ring time .Rousey for the arm bar or Nunes for a K.O.

    I usually go to a UFC bar to watch the PPVs. My wife has a cold, though (she got it from me so I need to be sympathetic) so I might pay up.

    I think that's general consensus. Question is whether Rousey can weather the initial storm.

    I want to see if Rousey has anything besides the head and shoulders throw to land the takedown. Obviously, that didn't work against Holm.

    Cruz outpoints Garbrandt. He owns TAM.

    I'm not into UFC at all. It all seems like too much of a thuggish street fight. Prison yard stuff. But that is just me and I realize that it is extremely popular.

    No kidding. I remember when Mike Tyson knocked out Leon Spinks in less then a minute in the first round. I invited a bunch of friends, had all this food and paid something like $50 for the pay per view. Needless to say it was a waste of time and money.

    Agreed. I had rather watch a Judo match.

    That was the last time I ever bought a pay per view event.

    ^^^This. Same goes for boxing.

    Never understood why anyone would want to get in a ring and get the **** pounded out of themselves.

    I agree, but Rousey made $3 million for that 48 seconds, so in her case, it was well worth it.

    No, went to Twin Peaks. Imagine Hooters crossed with Wisconsin fishing shack.
    The fact that it ended quickly wasn't surprising. Ronda was either going to get KTFO or Nunes was going to get arm-barred. There was no way this was going the distance.

    Either Ronda retires or switches to a real gym.

    Understanding what is happening on the ground makes it seem less homoerotic.

    Yeah.

    My wife doesn't think it appropriate...
    But it's either that or the Buffalo Wild Wings at the major shopping mall.

    Right, $62,500 per second.

    If I could only get that....lets just say last night instead of disappointment my wife would have been smiling for $562500. ;)

    I'm pretty sure Buffy doesn't have that many fingers.
