Comments Who do you think is a better fighter, and why?
Showing 25 comments.
you didn't actually, you said rousey is a no brainer, can't hide all day buddy. Its sad to see someone lie and embarase themselves.
I did actually https://twitter.com/jeromepalesoo/status/665375706642120704 theres a link. you sound like you like soup. You like soup huh
you didn't you said rousey would always be undefeated and you were wrong, ha ha.
Before i knew about the holm rousey matchup, if you follow me on twitter youd know i predicted holm to beat rousey. I also predicted hall to be whittaker, boy was that a let down. Theres another time when a pressure striker beat the range striker.
Poor gustafson if only he had finishing ability hed be wearing that belt, hes such a great fighter. Cant wait for jones to come back and beat up cormier. Hopefully he comes as an underdog and i can make some $$ haaha
you were wrong about gustafsson and I was right once again buddy.
you were wrong
you were wrong about gustafsson, I was right, ha ha.
so what were you saying about rousey, saying that rousey will be undefeated, god, your stupid.
See, your the type of person that doesn't admit you were wrong. You are a coward, I said cormier was going to eliminate gustafsson from the divisino and he did it, now shut your mouth, bow down to me and beg for mercy. Biiitch
i would BARELY call that a killing, that was cormier 1 hit away from a tko, gustafson had control, gus would have won but fighting backwards just takes to much from you and i over valued his abilty to hold up that pace, But hey split decision and cormier got dropped like your highschool education ahhahahahah
Hey, that was a hell of a fight. I think that if gustafsson would of won the last round then that other judge that scored it 48-47 for cormier would of gone the other way around which would have made gustafsson having the title and I wish that would of happened even though the amount of money I bet on cormier winning but I still wanted gustafsson. Alexander gustafsson showed a lot more of his ability and wasn't running back to much until he truly felt uncomfortable close then he would run out of it then throw more shots and feel more comfortable but that last round was a fight decider. I think that ryan bader will fight Anthony Johnson and then jon jones will fight cormier and I don't know where that leaves gustafsson but because gustafsson had a split decision then he will be back to a title elimatnotor fight or a title fight within a year and a half if he wins his next fight. Mabye a nobody fight for gustafsson next or jimi manuwa rematch
Well I'm a man of my word so I'm here despite gus losing. With that said, I didn't see Gustafsson crying... I saw two warriors with faces like ground meat. Even you cannot deny that Gustafsson has the true heart of a warrior. He will now go onto beat a nobody (bader), then avenge his loss to johnson. He will then take the belt from jon Jones who will have beat Cormier. Finally, he will kill old man Cormier.
rooting on the hometown girl of Spokane mother fudging Washington, that is so cool. Come on Juliana pena, shock me. Shock me and destroy this stupid girl, please, just please, I bet thousands on you losing but I wish you will win baby.
Cormier will dismantle her and make this little girl cry, again. Then cormier will fight jon jones and jones will kill her. You say you will be back at this comment section tonight, well lets see because so will I except I am right buddy boy. You wont be hear because you will have gone running and crying just like aldo and gustafsson.
Everyone in this comment section needs to STFU. I'll be back here tonight after Gustafsson heads back to Sweden with the belt in his hands. Then he will rematch rumble and knock his head straight off onto the canvas. Then finally when Jon 'Cocaine' Jones returns, Gustafsson will pick jon apart in a 5 round affair that will win fight of the year honours. #Mauler4Lyf
They should rory macdonald in to whoop Woodley, again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that Hendricks is out they should throw macdonald in there not to make weight and knock Woodley flat out on his face. I put 22,000 grand on Hendricks to win that fight and now I wont any get paid for this co main event, this is bull shiz niz. I broke my record now that I have my manchine that cost me 500,000 grand not counting maintence and maids and I am putting my largest bet on the main event fight. First, I put 10,000 grand on eye to win and 15,000 on bader to win. BUt now for my record braker because that is just play money with the main card until title fights and most main events, I placed my bet of 89,000 on cormier winning. I tell you people time after time that I know who will win but you don't listen. If you bet on cormier its a automatic win, its just that simple, I became a millionare by just betting on fights!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know what I am doing rather then you people. Two days ago on Wednesday I placed my bet on ronda rousey winning. I bet 60,00 grand on that and with the rest of my betting money I bet 82,000 grand on McGregor winning, 50,000 grand on rockhold winning because that's a underdog but I know that she will win and then I bet a flat 50,000 grand on cejudo winning again, possibly a knock out if not a brutal win.
Mcgregor will dismantle aldo and tear her limb from limb, she will be crying after that. He will beat edgar and bj penn and Holloway 2 and mendes 2 and mendes 3 and mendes 4 and dos anjos and pettis too!
I called every ufc fighter that is going to win this week, its not a guess its the fact. Its just that simple simple simple thing, I am better then you and every single other person that is aliver because I am nevr wrong, not even once, I wish I was wrong atleast, maybe even twice because I want to know what it feels like, I want too but cormier will destroy gustaffson. Gustafsson goes back on his feet to much which gives cormier two options. Easily take him down and go five rounds of whooping his buttox on the ground or when he leans back 79 times in this fight then he will throw a bomber to his wide open face that he doesn't even cover up. Then we got the Hendricks vs Woodley fight and Woodley is a undeveloped and curious unexperinced fighter that thinks he is the greatest ever. Woodley will lose this fight by a longshot. Then we got bader vs evans, bader will win this fight. How do they even put evans as the favorite. I mean what the fudge! Bader will win most likely by decision or he might out work evans then knock him out silly. nOw your interested huh!!!!!!!! Then we got magomedov vs Jordan and magomedov will win by a longshot. Then Jessica eye will win. This is a open and shut case buddy boy. Bow down and kiss my feet
jon jones is the youngest ufc champion in the world holding the ufc light heavy weight belt that has never been beaten, not even close. How is that for a reputation. I mean jesus, he is the second best ufc fighter ever. Mcgregor is the best but still! He will come back and be the champion, its that simple.
are you that type of person who doesn't know mma and sees someone have a lucky night vs jon jones then you think he is the greatest ever. WEll, was alexander the greatest when he got knocked out by Johnson and now is he the greatest when he loses by cormier. Get this straight, through your thick headed skull, gustafsson will lose. As much as I hate to say it, cormier will kill this kid. He will dismantle alexander piece by piece. Watch gustafssons fights, you will see. You will see, plus look what happened on the other comments on cage rank. I was right, I am never wrong boy. Just like I will not be wrong this time.
Amen. Aldo is going to flat kill McGregor's little puny ass. I can't wait for that fight. The fighting Irish will be the Crying Irish after that one.
this is stupid. Calling Mcgreggor or Rousey to beat anyone in their current divishion isn't a genius call, it's pretty obvious. jon jones to stay undefeated also not that genius a call. but calling lesser known fighters like urijah hall vs gergadi mousassi what do you say? for gus and dc ill go Gustaffson; his footwork and striking far exceeds cormiers, this with his superior cardio and reach will be enough assuming his takedown defense is as effective as it was against jones. Gus by decision.
Whatever. This conversation is done because you still haven't proved to me why Gustafsson would win, you proved to me that you confuse the HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION with the FEATHERWEIGHT DIVISION ( typical Mcgregor fan. Thinks their little prince can take on anybody despite being realistic of weight divisions XD) and to make matters worse, you come across as a self absorbed, unrealistic, gambling addicted twat. Boi get rekt.
I am the greatest, I have never been wrong about who will win in a mma fight in my life, try to find one time that I was wrong on cagerank. You won't because every single time I was right. I was right on Holloway and oliveira. I was right on rousey and correia. I betted $35,000 on jones vs cormier and $21,00 on McGregor vs mendes. Each time I was right because it is impossible for me to be wrong because I am the greatest ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to bet $30,000 on Belfort vs Henderson and vitor will kill this kid. I am also betting my highest ever on McGregor vs aldo.(this will be $72,000 on McGregor vs aldo and conor will win.) You really think that I don't know what I'm talking about!!!!!! Well to bad becasuse every single time I say something is going to happen, it hapensQQQQ!!!!!!!!!!! I don't fuc around when it comes to mma because I am to good at this. ASk me anyone in a ufc fight and I might even tell you if your lucky. Boy. Biiithc. Bet money niggggggajfafj fuc.
