Not to be outdone in the battle of the ridiculous outfits championship - Cesares comes out in his kung fu suit with an afro pic in his hair.

I do miss the days of fighters entering in their robes.

Bruce Leeroy needs to work on his jiujitsu. Bruce Lee would not approve.

The refs are just acting nutty. No one was worse than the Yamasaki brothers at the last UFC Brazil.

I don't understand why people are surprised a man weighing probably ten stone in the Octagon can generate power. Even straw weight in MMA is not a complete midget.

Remember guys, MMA 'flyweights' are not small guys. Alexis Arguello and Dieselnoi were around the same weight, probably a bit lighter (same day weigh in's and all)

Lineker is a monster though, glad to see him bounce back.

If only Henry Cejudo could focus himself on MMA. He's born to turn over and be a massive success at 125 IMO.

Most of the lighter weight MMA fighters don't use solid footwork but rather bounce around - so it's no surprise most of their punches don't seem as "powerful" but they are certainly stinging and when placed in the right spot can land with resounding effects.

Arguello was one of the most solid footed fighters ever in the game. Always came forward being a strong jab, hook combination. Then that overhand right would come out of no where. Ah, those were the days. . .

Yeah he's a tremendous wrestler (olympic gold obviously) and he's got that mexican fighting spirit.
He's let himself go a little bit since he won the olympics in 08 though
