Unless his deal has changed, pretty sure he doesnt have points. Now he just gets show money and a free ticket to the fights. Sucks.

No points for Cowboy and Gastelum was at least 10lbs over. Since he didn't even try to cut the 3lbs to make the 7lbs I'm guessing he was 12-14lbs over. Kind of surprised he wasn't cut.

He absolutely dominated Eddie. I expected Conor to win but that was an absolute beatdown. Reallllly curious who he fights next.

The announcement was he is going to be a dad. Which is awesome and congrats to him, but of course the pessimist in me knows he is going to (rightfully so) want time off, and now 2 belts will be tied up with that.

Hell of a performance to cap off a great night. Really wish cowboy hadn't gotten screwed, but him and Matt Brown should be super fun.

Not bad for a guy who can't wrestle, can't stop a take down and gasses out...

Do you think he can stop a khabib takedown?

I think he will vacate the featherweight title, fight diaz for the 155 belt, and hopes khabib will fall in the rankings.

First Khabib is going to have to get close enough to get that take down. I watched a mid level striker land some really clean shots, one of them hurt Khabib pretty bad. Eddie's wrestling was a non-factor and wasn't even close to taking Conor down. Every time he got some what close to Conor he buried the ball of his foot into his stomach to keep the distance. I think Ferguson gets the shot after all can you really build a card around a guy who has fought once in two years. A lot of fighters hate signing contracts to fight AKA guys because they always get hurt and back out of fights. Don't rule out Aldo at 145lbs....

What a fuggin fight. Still dunno why Woodley didn't take him down more than that one attempt. Woodley really impressed me and luls @ the fuggin scoring confusion. I had it 3 rounds to 2 for Wonderboy, but I could see Woodley getting a 10-8 in the first, hence the draws. Did the score cards get released yet?

I didnt have the 1st as a 10-8, but I did have 4 as a 10-8. The score card is whack, Doug Crosby (who is drymounting terrible) had the first as a 10-8 and not the 4th. I thought it was a draw personally. 3-2 Thompson with a 10-8 4th for Woodley.

Why would he do that? Can a UFC champion dodge number 1 contenders? Didn't think Bisping really cared who he fought.
