video review : Tony Ferguson versus Anthony Pettis at UFC 229

Pettis is no slouch, but Ferguson’s fighting style is hard to deal with. It’s a barrage of pressure from a guy who doesn’t seem to get tired. He gets rocked in round 2 but recovers and continues to attack.

The ending is, as Jon Anik describes it, somewhat anticlimactic as the bout ends with Duke Roufus throwing in the metaphorical towel for Anthony Pettis. He’s apparently done in by a broken hand.

video review : Chris Weidman versus Jacaré Souza at UFC 230

“What a fight,” Joe Rogan comments at the end. I agree. This is one hell of a fight; a kickboxing brawl that, while Chris Weidman looks a tad sharper, goes back and forth fairly evenly until Souza shuts him down.

That’s literally what it looks like; someone pressing a robot’s off button; as Weidman slowly falls over from a big overhand right to the temple. It’s a third round KO and his fourth loss in less than three years.
