Payout Perspective:

The event was a success from an attendance  and gate perspective.  Chris Weidman and Patrick Cote had ample fans as both are from the area.  Weidman is from New York and Cote’s Canadian fans crossed the border to make it to Buffalo.  Notably, Cote and Anthony Johnson told the crowd that this was their last fight.

    It was a good night of fights- only issue was the Weidman bs stoppage which will probably be ruled a NC.

    Cormier proved once again that if Johnson can’t put you away early, he is in trouble and the second the fight hits the ground with him on his back, he’s done.

    Sets up a big rematch between Jones-Cormier finally if Jones can keep himself out of trouble and stay clean.

    Johnson’s game plan was bizarre. He wore himself out initiating rasslin’ exchanges with Cormier. He looked tired by the end of the first round.

    I still don’t know what happened with Weidman. Did the doctors decide he couldn’t continue based on something he was saying or did the come up with that on their own? Was Weidman trying to game the system and claim he couldn’t continue so Musassi would get DQd? They should have just re-started the fight in the same position. Problem solved.

    Apparently Weidman couldn’t answer what day it was and that’s why they stopped it. He was either trying to game the system and get Mousassi DQd or was honestly loopy. Either way, that’s on him. You have to do a better job answering the doctors or they’re going to stop it.

    Although he may have been attempting to game the system, that still was the wrong decision. There is no instant replay, therefore, they can’t go to the monitor and overturn the ruling in the cage. This should be reversed to a NC and they should do it again.

    There is no instant replay?? Wow really – because we all saw it… Weidman is just a p**ssy, tried to play the system and get Mousasi disqualified. He said – I CANT CONTINUE, when he thought it was illegal knee. Great result, I’m happy for Gegard.

    Now it seems like NY is claiming they did have replay, although I’m skeptical about that due to the many reports claiming they did not. Who knows?

    Of course it was available, the point I was making was whether or not it was legal to use in ruling a fight decision reversal.

Got something to say?
