Great fight analysis but lots of really bad epidemiological takes from Phil on this.

Props to John for not corpsing during this. Phil filters had me in hysterics.

Tony Ferguson didn’t have much up there to get knocked out. A great performance from Gaethje but I can understand why Tony’s pissed. His desperation to get a massive fight against Khabib or McGregor took a big hit. Hopefully it’s not totally lost though. Shouldn’t get the title shot now but him against McGregor with the winner facing the winner of Khabib/Gaethje should be the plans moving forward.
