Nobody has dominated Maia more than that.  Ala Anderson Silva vs. Demian Maia. A world beater type of top contender in Maia didn't have much of a chance.

Maybe not aesthetically pleasing to the palette, but the lopsided dominance demonstrated that the victor Kamaru Usman is rank 1 @ 170 lbs, with all due respect to UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington.



50-45 with two broken hands. 

Iconic imagery.

 



Now it's Darren Till's turn.

Huh? He did worse against Maia than both Woodley and Colby.

He sucks. It’s not a wrestling match , and by damage alone he loses everytime. He’s a joke.

How can he be beaten? Only a superior wrestler/grinder will win.

Woodley has a solid shot at stopping Usman from imposing his will, but there's a relentless motor there that's tough to overcome. His pace/conditioning and mixed attack is going to be problematic for anyone @ 170 lbs.

Askren or GSP are the only betting favorites against him. Rory wouldn't win a 5 round K-1 rules match against Usman. He'd be outworked by a more durably deliberate faster athlete.

Usman is boring as fuck . Had no threat of being taken down after that 1st round . Had weak standup . And can't give him too much credit for beating Maia . He's what 40 now, Gassed after the 1st round and still couldn't finish him .

False. Remember that Robbie Lawler and Kamaru are sparring partners. 

 

Usman was more dominant against mutual opposition and sports the unblemished record in the UFC as evidence of that fact. 

 

 

 

 


Benny would do a number on Ro Mac, he's in the hurt business. round 1 TKO. Bellator doesn't want to see it. Many fans do though. Rory's a good guy. Keep him out of Askren's way.

The fans would be giving Dana all types of shit if he blocked Macdonald/Askren on behalf of Bellator. But it's all good when Coker gets in the way of the best possible fight Viacom MMA can make.

Plus whether Ben Askren thwacks out Rory in two minutes or two rounds, critics are going to claim "well Rory lost to Wonderboy and twice to Lawler" "Rory had a close fight with Maia" "Eh. Rory didn't win the UFC title." instead of saying Rory would beat Askren like some are now or Rory beat Woodley and Nate Diaz etc.




It's Askren to UFC or bust.

Darren Till's next opponent with a win over Wonderboy?

17-0-1 vs. 18-0-1? New Years Eve show?

It's been obvious for a while now. Usman is one of the best fighters I've ever seen grace the octagon. There's a reason that UFC and Colby have ducked Usman like three times now. Usman will chew up and spit out all these people they're trying to force into the spotlight in hopes to make them a star.

8-0 in the UFC in less than 2.5 years. Usman is going to be a problem for anyone he fights.

Wow. Hopefully the UFC bonuses him out for activity and enthusiasm in regards to fighting anyone, anytime. Big top 5 win tonight. Expect Usman to at least take Maia's #5 spot.
