    I am interested in seeing how Daukaus fares in his fight. He has huge KO power... How is Nate Diaz even in the UFC still?

    I think Ortega will KO Volkanovsky, hope not but I think he will.

    Nick Diaz is in the UFC because of his image that the public thinks he is, i.e., a street tough, no ********, no nonsense guy with a **** you mentality. Same with his brother.

    Nate Diaz is 4-6 since Dec. 2012. Nate was thrown around the octagon like a ragdoll by Rory MacDonald. Since Aug. 2016 Nate is 1-3.

    There is an elementary school picture of Nick Diaz. He has his fist in the air like a fighter.

    :eek: Wow that fight Marlon Vs. Dvalishvili, excellent work by Dvalishvili who was nearly finished to finish Moraes, nice ones for Daukaus and Hooker as well.

    Volkanovski beats up Ortega after getting caught in 3 submission attempts.

    Shevchenko dominant as always.

    He was lucky as well the head clash literally broke Ortega's nose, alot closer fight if that doesn't happen.

    Yessir some great wins on that undercard!

    Daukaus has been on quite the rise and tonight looked to be in the best shape physically I've seen him in.

    Ortega is a tough SOB. I figured Volk would finish him by RD 3. Took a beating and he did have some serious submission attempts.

    Tough breaking his nose with a head clash.

    whether a male fighter or a female fighter you come to fight, if you are ever lucky enough to get a title shot you leave it all in the cage, everything, like Ortega did. Lauren Murphy was a fighter who took one shot early from Shevchenko and realized she was screwed, she then fought like she was trying not to get ko'd and she got stopped anyways. what a terrible performance by her. Shevchenko is a mean female cat in the cage. The only fighter who has a chance is the man Nunes.
