    It's a great idea for Eddie. His UFC ceiling was happily exceeded with his title win, and he wasn't exactly a favourite amongst Dana and co. Plus, he gets to go grab the ONE belt to add to his collection, like the old-school fighter he is. And he'll sell tickets in Asia.

    Nunes/Cyborg is as much of an 'Unstoppable force meets immovable object' fight as is likely to happen in the sport any time soon. Really looking forward to it. Feels like Bader/Jones, where beforehand they looked like the same style of fighter with the same high-level skills. Though obviously the quality got separated in that fight, as it might here.

    Bader is absolutely a top LHW. In fact, I'd put both him and Davis in the top 5. With DC likely shedding the belt, and Johnson not talking about coming back yet, Bellator's LHW division is as legit as UFCs. Except for the fact that McGeary was ever champ

    I was always surprised that Khabib Vs Conor wasn't the first big Moscow show for the UFC. I even figured Conor's photo ops with Putin were to help sell it. Maybe Khabib will look to run his own show there if he leaves the UFC. He's surely on the verge of superstardom there now.

    Some false equivalences here. Conor was in the streets. He put multiple innocent fighters at risk, and his motivation was to make money. Fighters since have talked about the damage done to their confidence, and their earning ability. Khabib attacked one man who had been talking shit about his culture in the media for months. His motivation was to stop that happening again. Not sure if it matters, but his kick also didn't connect with Danis. Like Conor's didn't at the weigh-in. Bispings's act was classless and also motivated by trash talk, but only resulted in a bonus being withheld. There's an argument that Conor wasn't unprovoked, in that Lobov had had a confrontation with Khabib's crew beforehand. But does anyone genuinely think that's why Conor did what he did?

    I wouldn't be remotely surprised if NSAC are just a reliable middle man while Dana decides how much drama he wants to eke out. Fair play to Khabib. 'Honour' in the sense that he talks about it is a old-fashioned, and something I personally find to be destructive and stupid, but he's sticking to his guns. Even at a cost of millions. Though I'm sure his friends in low/high places will see him right. It would be a real shame if he left before cementing his place as LW GOAT, but it doesn't look like he'll be kowtowing to anyone anytime soon.

    Your "Eureka" moments.

    Yeah - makes it even better to barely cover the pasta when you're cooking it. The less water there is, the higher the starch concentration.

    I've seen the Gus/Jones fight three times now. On the night, my heart wanted Gus to have it. After the fact, I was sure Jones had it each time. I also don't know how seriously Jones was taking him. Gus has good defensive wrestling, but if Jones can take down DC, he can take down anyone he wants. He just didn't want it that badly against Gus last time. Gus isn't better than Jones in any world. That said, we'd all love to see Bones take an L Wouldn't mind if he hung around a few years too long and got humbled on the regular.

    I think, at this point, trolling Jon Jones by refusing to ever fight him again is probably on DC's mind. Lesnar's in the USADA testing pool, and theoretically DC might not take any damage against Lewis. They could push DC/Lesnar for the New Year's week show.

    I don't understand what people expect to happen to the welterweight belt with the creation of a 165lb belt. Does it change to 175? What does that do to belt lineage? They'd need to realign a bunch of things, since there's a bigger gap between MW and LHW than LW and WW.

    I don't even like stealth games, and I remember loving this.

    Venom (2018) - Boring. Silly. Funny.

    Bar the airport question, which I did notice while watching the film , the answers to the writer's other questions can easily be inferred. That said, the ending does require you to buy two things, which I was happy to: Not overtly yelled into the camera, but not exactly a Rubik's cube either.

    Venom (2018) - Boring. Silly. Funny.

    I saw this last night, and had a decent time. As a long-time fan of the character, I've always got an interest in seeing a different take on it, and this was reasonably authentic. Had some laughs, one of Tom Hardy's more consistent accents, and didn't need Spiderman to engage. Thought that: But people acting as if it's a cinematic atrocity are being a little too sensitive. Sure, some of the exposition was rushed - the person I was with went for a toilet break, during which she missed everything about Venom's motivation - but people in the cinema were having a good time. Is the Life Foundation an existing thing from the comics, or a nod to the film that came out last year and people speculated it was a precursor to this?

    I suspect Conor was just knackered, and Khabib could've done whatever he wanted at that point. That wrestling has to be the most oppressive, exhausting experience in the sport. Also, it was a neck crank rather than a misplaced choke, and they're supposed to hurt like fuck. I don't think Conor's got exceptional staying power by UFC standards, but I doubt you need to look for conspiracy here... EDIT: Exactly what PInholestar wrote, basically
