    My favourite moment from the event was Johnson's corner telling him his cardio "is like ****", Johnson arguing with them saying it isn't, and then Rogan coming on commentary and suggesting Johnson's corner were telling him his cardio looked "sick", before going on to talk about how good Johnson's cardio is at 205. Just summed up the commentary of the whole fight for me. Saying that, I still love his commentary, and there's no-one better in MMA, always sucks when Anik and Florian are on comms.

    Hoping Spider Silva retires now. I get the feeling his legacy will only be tarnished if he continues.

    How ****ing good did TJ Dillashaw look at the weekend? No-one could have expected that. He put a clinic on Renan Barao, and beat him convincingly at his own game. A breath of fresh air in the Bantamweight division, and really opens it all up. One big question now though, will TJ and Urijah fight? Ludwig seems to believe that they'll fight, as they fight twice a week in the gym, why not get paid to do it. Dillashaw winning the belt creates quite a few intriguing matchups though, a fight with Urijah, a re-match with Barao, a super-fight with DJ and a re-match with Raphael Assuncao. Loving 135 right now!

    Not sure if any of you guys are aware of the work of Jack Slack, but he's a combat sports writer that specialises in breaking down the striking techniques of top fighters. His breakdowns on Roy Jones, and Mike Tyson are well worth a read, and he's written one breaking down the Dillashaw-Barao fight, and it's definitely worth a read. Here's the link: Jack Slack: How TJ Dillashaw Killed the King | FIGHTLAND Enjoy!

    Also, Daniel Cormier is looking like an absolute destroyer at the minute at 205. His last 2 performances have been so ****ing good. To man-handle Dan Henderson like that was ridiculous. The massive bodyslam in the 3rd round was such an impressive display of strength. DC is a beast, Jon Jones needs to watch his back, Cormier is a serious threat to his title.

    Weidman's the best middleweight in the world. He'll walk through Machida like Jones did.

    Sonnen thoughts? Popped for Testosterone, HGH and EPO, has retired, and been dropped by the UFC and FOX for all on-screen activities. Pretty big fall from grace for Chael P. Be interested to see if new Bellator boss Scott Coker tries to tempt him there as a play-by-play commentary, or on-screen analyst. He might be a massive cheat, but there's no doubting his pulling power, still one of the biggest names in the sport.

    Sonnen old. It's time to retire. He can work in comedy film.

    Cain lost his belt to Werdum. Does anyone watch MMA anymore? Pretty excited for UFC 189, well, McGregor vs Aldo anyway, but there's not really many other fights I'm looking forward to. So many cards seem to be stacked with guys I've never heard of and the lack of stars is pretty worrying. Rousey is the biggest star left now that Jones is gone indefinitely, and I guess Weidman is 2nd, but he's not really mainstream famous yet. I just pray McGregor wins, firstly because I like him, and secondly because it'd breath new life into the division and give the UFC a superstar champion.

    The hype is real bitches. Conor predicted it correctly again, knocking out Mendes in the 2nd. Mendes dominated the grappling, but Conor was in a different league on the feet. You can't keep running forever Jose, Conor's taking that belt. Looks like it's going to be a while off though, Conor's signed up to do TUF vs Faber. No fight at the end, so seems a bit pointless, but should boost the TUF ratings!

    Also, props to Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald, that fight was a ****ing war, and this gif shows how much heart Rory has:

    What a ****ing fight!

    If you're remotely a fan of MMA. Watch Dillashaw/Barao II. TJ is ****ing awesome. An absolutely beautiful performance, his footwork is completely unmatched in MMA, and the angles he creates made Barao look amateur. What a performance.
