    Before Honor Comes Humility: The birth of Henry Cejudo's UFC championship mindset.

    Before there was ever the King of Cringe, UFC Bantamweight Champion, Henry Cejudo was a fighter, who had his eyes set on becoming the best in the world. Like all things in life, a setback actually set the course for Cejudo to make history and lay claim to the greatest combat sports athlete of all time.

    Won't even cap this event until the day of. I learned my lesson.. Gonna be tricky with no crowd.. Fighters will be fighting with even emotion. Be like a back yard brawl with no audience cheering fighters on..

    I'll looking forward to it!!!

    I REALLY HOPE THIS EVENT GOES DOWN!! We've seen every event get shut down last minute now since Corona.. Just saying..

    It's true and it's hard to cap which fighters feed off a full arena cheering them on??? I'd think it would be the fighters that have the most 1st round finishes that feed off the crowds..

    That tells me they have the adrenaline flowing coming out of the blocks.. I'll cap it that way for sure. Still it's just a guess..

    Many fighters don't even hear the crowd noise when fighting..

    i always say Ferguson is a tough out but the man finds a way to cheat when times get tough. I never watched his fight with Cerrone (until the other day)and for fuks sakes he cheated again and no way should have been awarded that win. a blatant late punch at the end ,ends it cause Cerrone is a meathead and blows his nose. Tony didn't even need to do this. Call these all a coincident call it what you want but i feel the only way he wins this is take over the cardio battle or land something cheap again to turn the fight around. Barbosa kicked while he was down. Dos Angos poke in the eye when he was winning the fight. Cerrone blatant late punch.

    Jokes aside, you did point out some moments that impacted fights but do you think he was really going out of his way to purposely foul opponents?

    Guys? May I suggest that we only post Triple C related stuff for this event thread? I mean it's the least we could do to honor and show our respect to the greatest combat athlete of all time. Thx

    Greg Hardy and Yorgan De Castro are both kinda sorta counter punchers.

    In the way Yoel Romero and Israel Adesanya are kinda sorta counter punchers.

    That formula could make for lackluster fights.





    Its been said these guys will be tested everyday for corona.


    I hope they're prepared for false positves in case test results prove to be unreliable.

    My only fear with Ferguson is he might not respect the power of JG....he has way more skills.....I like watching hardy fight Ill be honest.....but he is still new to the game....on the fade train .....

    Cerrone showed nothing in that fight IMO....Ferguson walked him down with ease---no way cerrone should have had a W lol...

    i don't know it is bizarre. Cerrone was blatant even Rogan said it and he loves Tony. In that fight it was only a matter of time Tony would have taken Cerrone out or he would have won an easy three round decision. His fight with Barbosa was close and i thought he was losing to Dos Angos when that poke turned the whole fight around. You watch Tony more than me do you remember other fights like this on his way up the ranks. I still love watching him fight. I thought it was bizarre recently he said he never spars. Than i see him say he sparred for this fight. He better have cause he leaves that chin up way to much and is known to get hit and Gaethje can crack a lot better than the last few guys he fought.

    i feel anyone that cancels now because of covid 19 is a dikhead. They had more than plenty of time to drop out. I hope Dana has tested people already and doesn't decide to do it at the weigh ins. Test now and test at the weighins.
