Okay, let’s talk about UFC. Let’s talk about men and women punching each other in the face and choking one another unconscious.
But seriously, UFC 196 was great. Even if I really wanted McGregor to win and he lost.

Here are some of my notes…
— All the fights on the main card sucked except the co-main and main.
— Felt terrible for Holly Holm who was well on her way to winning a decision before being choked out in the fifth. I expect her to win the title back, possibly before Ronda returns.
— McGregor was teeing off on Diaz big time. But at one point during the second I remember being shocked at how gassed McGregor was. I knew he was in trouble at that point.
— I feel like McGregor will be back. Those shots would have melted every featherweight on the planet (and most lightweights). He was unwise to take a fight with one of the best chins in MMA.
I have a lot more thoughts, but I’m keen to hear yours! I will be in the comments!
