  • Hooker slept Burns. Should have been a better fighter in there because Kamaru owns the division. Unless it's Khamzat..

  • So what were the ppv numbers?

  • Only guy for usman is a 39 year old wonderboy,or else it will be just rematches for him

  • It’s not as good as GSPs jab

  • Dana what about Izzy vs Usman Izzy wins

  • Of course Dana will hype Kamaru as being better than GSP. He couldn't control GSP, who left the UFC after dethroning Bisping.

  • When samuel got eating first thing i thought of was deep blue sea part 1

  • Usman beats a prime GSP...

  • Unlce dana looks disappointed second card in a row where his star did not win ahahah

  • Who cares what this guy has to sau

  • Dana "one of the greatest fights i've ever seen" White

  • Dana calls everybody kid, even oneday my grandpa

  • For fucks sake get the audio levels right

  • USADA was after Khabib for using EPO and Diuretics. Khabib barely makes 155 lbs without Diuretics. He cheats and comes on matchday with 180 lbs. Khabib is a Diuretics abuser. He couldn't cut 30lbs without drugs. Imagine him in Welterweight or Middleweight... In russian TV was a Interview. USADA is after Khabib, Khamzat, Usman, Burns and the whole Ali team for PED abuse. Azaitar is just the peak of the steroid abusing Muslim clan. Welcome to reality! The EPO is strong in Usman

  • Great chin 👍 a lot of condition and pressure wrestler without stop to beat a guy like him u need someone who has a boxing and kicking like adesanya with a great mind tactical wise and wrestle defense like lawler

  • This fight was GSP vs Koshcheck all over again

  • Is it me or is Khabib vs Usman is looking for exciting than GSP vs Khabib.

  • The biggest threat to Usman in my opinion is Wonderboy. If he's flowing and he's comfortable, he can beat anyone in the world on any given day. Sure, he doesn't always look great, admittedly. But if he's ON like he was in his last fight? Danger.

  • Usman has an unbelievable pumpkin head. There’s no good spot to hit it and hurt him

  • Now GSP needs to beat Kahbib and tie him for the win streak

  • Why does he keep calling grown men in their 30s with families kids????

  • Dana is wearing a great looking button up

  • I don’t want to see Masvidal vs Usman again. I don’t wanna spend $70 to fall asleep.

  • GSP vs Usman. I think prime GSP takes it, but present day Usman wins it on the feet. That would be the greatest war ever. Both had unbreakable wills & otherworldly athleticism. Plus the best jabs in WW division.

  • Glutes kicks ? I miss the foot stomps now.

  • To bad Marty is so annoying he will never be a star

  • Give wonder boy the next title fight! Usman already beat everyone else

  • Why so quiet volume?

  • Usman deserve to be Champ!!!..humble and smash all the bla bla guys in the division...respect Champ!!

  • Usman deserve all to be Champ!!!..humble and smash all the bla bla guys in the division...respect Champ!!

  • Gilbert is very old not a kid

  • Dana, did you remove Edwards from the rankings to force him to fight the 15th ranked fighter???

    • @michael murillo no, I think it's what I said is correct.

    • No he just was hyped about khzamt(sorry for spelling his name wrong) Noone within the top 10 wanted to fight him. Edwards hasnt fought in long time. So he thought why not.

  • Usman with a exciting night 🤯 now need Jorge part 2 and if he wins that he needa move up or some lol. He only got rematches left it seems

  • Usman VS Khabib should happen not 40 year old GSP VS Khabib

  • Is this ESPN ? Audio quality is horrible

  • There's nobody left! He should move up and fight the real Nigerian Nightmare, Adesanya.

  • Id like to see a rematch with Jorge but this time id like to see him fight Jorge the same way he fought Colby .

    • @Calvin Calvin I completely agree but it also says i respect your stand up too much to engage you in that battle . How would THAT fight look? All the people foaming over the Colby fight would get a bigger treat if he fought Jorge the same way . I think that is being overlooked .

    • @Calvin Calvin Couldn’t of said it better myself

    • It’s not what you want to see. It’s what the best path for victory is.

  • Nobody wants to see George rematch 🤦‍♂️ Colby makes sense

    • If anything it should be Colby vs Edwards for a title shot cause all top 3 have been beaten by Usman

  • Usman is amazing

  • Burns riding a bicycle on the ground was a strange defense.

    • It's believe that Burns has a distinct advantage on the ground (bjj), plus he didn't have space to get up without getting hit

  • I see Kamzat causing some problems for Usman. Usman the man tho. Awesome fight

  • Knocked out by a jab lol. Give us the colby rematch he seems the only one who can give usman a though fight

    • @Conner Anstiss Your boy can improve all he wants he gon lose. Tell your boy to focus on the Mazvidals and Leon Edward’s em. He don’t want no more smoke with the champ.

    • @Albert Lawson lol clueless casual. Colby will be better and improvise. Your just a hater who knows f all

    • @Conner Anstiss how am I hating? I know Colby put up a good fight but I’m just saying Usman gon prolly break his neck instead of his jaw if he they ever fight again.

    • @Albert Lawson yeah yeah typical hater pipe down

    • If they ever fight again. Is not going the distance. Usman knocks out Colby in 2.

  • Search "kobe 4 ever" on SEnewss

  • great ? fight wasn't even fair, rookie vs pro

  • Gilbert Burned

  • Dana - "cant stop talking about usman/colby " Sooo why isnt that the next title fight??? Let Leon and Jorge get their little spat sorted out, we all want to see that. My guess?...jorge (and Dana) know jorge gets touched up by all the top contenders and are looking to how to make the money before jorges losing streak at the top kicks in (please dont mention nate, he isnt even good enough to be top 5, maybe even top 10).

  • GSP has 12 title fight wins to Usman 4 GSP has 9 straight ww title defences to Usman 3 GSP is 26-2 to Usman 18-1 GSP cleaned out the ww division. Usman has years to go before he is in the conversation of ww GOAT. Guys being GOAT isnt that easy lol That being said Usman is incredible and years of his prime ahead. Let's see.

    • @Stan Anderson getting to the top is easier than staying at the top. Once he's defended the belt against as many hungry animals as GSP then we can talk. 3 title defences is not GOAT status in the ww division.

    • Usman has cleaned out the top of the division too, only thing that's left is rematches!!! 13 straight ww wins how is that not cleaning the division out!!! Undefeated in title fights and the one loss early in career!!! Definitely in the conversation of the GOAT

  • WB took a fight against number 11. Give him a good fight. Leons scared

  • Look at the video I made of Ariel Helwani crying because Dana white called him a ‘douche’ 🤣🤣

  • King Maruru 👑 UFC Africa let's go Dana !

  • The question is : how much money did Dana bet on Burns ?

  • John Morgan always ask the first Question

  • He‘s definitely up there already. After Colby fight for me it was clear how dominant he is. Yeah, there are more fun and exciting fighters to listen to, but someone wants to listen, better watch talk shows. In the Ring Usman is just crazy good

  • He’s the goat fight promoter are Dana.

  • 3 more fights and he’s the welterweight goat for me

  • usman is good, but his personality is just not likable, comes off as fake, phony

  • Wish for Khabib Vs Usman

    • Would you all stop parroting that all of the time. Give it up. This is not for your pleasure or amusement.

    • Khabib not fighting at 170. If he will then we already get Khabib vs GSP

  • Knew Usman was good but hated that he didn’t get finishes. This fight was nuts. I think he needed Burns to come forward and threaten him. I think he wins every rematch (Colby, Jorge, Leon) easily. One of if not the best WW champions.

    • Megat Afiq yeah I agree. GSP is hard to take out of the GOAT discussion but Usman is certainly proving to be a dominant champion. Tyron was a good champ but his reign has awkward timing between the old guard and the up and comers.

    • Mr. Jones I think so too. The division is a lot more diverse now and has huge threats. I do think Kamaru fights at the level of his opponent. Maybe that’s different now but I hope he doesn’t always need to be threatened. I do think GSP would still be able to be the champ but he’d have a much harder time doing it if he were to be champ. Stylistically Usman vs Prime GSP would’ve been fun, hopefully like Colby V Usman

    • GSP better thank God he fought at the time he did. He would get smashed in this time period. I think GSP would of had trouble with Rory and Robbie. Let alone fighting kamaru, gilbert, colby, leon, jorge, wonderboy. GSP came in the perfect era. I don't see matt serra beating top 5 in this era. Alot of those fighters would get smashed today. Kamaru has harder comp and on his way to 🐐 status at 170. He will surpass GSP.

    • If we can have two GOAT in the division. Its only for 170 which is GSP and Usman.

  • Reporter: So what did you think of the outcome of the fight? Dana: Ya so uh..I talked to Khabib again.

    • @donjoy33 that would be a great fight but Khabib wouldn’t do 170. If he goes 170 he would much rather fight GSP I’d think.

    • Khabib should fight Usman at 170

    • He needs to give it up, Khabib is not coming back unless it's against GSP at 165 cause it's the fight his father wanted

  • The only one who can beat Usman needs one more win for 30:0....

    • @Adam Burling you did by saying the only man who can beat him is Khabib. Like it’s a given

    • @Andrew Clannachan You also need to point out wjere I disrespect Usman. You can't. I think he's the best WW today.

    • @Andrew Clannachan Who are you calling casual? I've been looking into thr UFC for years. First of all. You need to get straight what you disagree with and come forward with that. YOU said " the fact that I think he can beat Usman " are you words not mine. I said he can't be beaten. And he can't. He's shown this. Until he's even marked up or bruised or shown to be compromised in some way, then he cant be beaten. You are talking about fantasy. First of all.. there is a clear and obvious difference between the two. And second They will not fight one another anyway.. I stand by, that Khabib is a superior technical and skilled fighter, with a mind in fighting that is second to none. That being said, theres an obvious difference in size. But that doesn't mean anything in terms of p4p number 1, or who's better.

    • @Adam Burling the disrespect to usman is crazy. Khabib is 155. Weight and height changes everything. The fact you think he’d just win is stupid. Such a casual point of view. Why doesn’t he just move up to heavyweight and take title while he’s at it.

    • @Andrew Clannachan I dont think that this fight will happen either but i think this is the best possible fight for khabib and even for usman

  • WONDERBOY

    • @Conservative Tears although I wouldn't bet against Usman, Wonderboy has a thing for making hos oponents look worse than they are

    • Will get absolutely dominated

  • Welterweight fights that make sense - (#1) Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal (#4) | Winner fights Usman for the title - (#3) Leon Edwards vs. Stephen Thompson (#5) - (#2) Gilbert Burns vs. Michael Chiesa (#6) - (#7) Tyron Woodley vs. Vicente Luque (#10) - (#9) Neil Magny vs. Khamzat Chimaev (#15) - (#8) Demian Maia vs. Belal Muhammad (#13) - (#11) Geoff Neal vs. Li Jingliang (#12) - (#14) Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit 2 (NR)

  • It's Dana "Covid will suddenly disappear after November 2nd" White...

  • Dana looks like kingpin in spiderman haha

  • Usman just wiped out the whole division. Only rematches left.

    • @JLS you're both right, isn't mma fun?

    • @Tee eL And you're so dumb you think Usman wanted to simply hold Masvidal against the cage for 25 minutes? LOL stupid people can really convince themselves of anything, huh? Usman probably wanted to out strike him, he couldn't. Usman probably wanted to take him down and tko him, he couldn't. Usman probably wanted to submit him, he couldn't. Don't be such a fanboy you become a moron. Lol

    • @JLS Yes! When you can make a grown man do what YOU want them to do and not what they want to do, that's pretty much dominating them. Poor Jorge was helpless. I almost felt bad for him.

    • @Tee eL Dominating someone, according to you, is holding them against a fence? Lmaooo 🤣

    • @JLS kamaru DOMINATED him. He won all five rounds. He enforced his will even though usman accepted to fight masvidal in only a few days notice. Masvidal had no answers. All he could do was just stay there and watch as another grown man foot stomps him to defeat. 😂😂😂.

  • But $70 no dana no 🚮

  • Edwards masvidal

  • Dana I just wanted to let you know I stream this card legally by using a Netherlands vpn

    • He only cares about who’s creating the streams

    • @Aman Varma is this Schuab?

    • He’s not talking about watching the streams

    • @Jaylaemae Hargastaionfintalm crackstreams

    • @Jaylaemae Hargastaionfintalm Google c π a c |< s t π e a m s

  • So Masvidal gets another title shot off a title shot loss 👍

    • @M R I feel like usman is happy with the performance against Colby like that argument was settled there and then. I’m not saying masvidal even deserves it but it makes more sense than the majority of the division heading into spring/summer as it was a short notice fight so let’s see what happens with a full camp on both ends 💥

    • @Ben Vlerick he lost all 5 rounds, completely dominated and Usman had 6 days notice aswell, Masvidal fans are so gullible

    • @Corey H not a fan of colby but he has done more in the division to be given a rematch as has leon . Masvidal is very active on Twitter but he ain't putting in work against the top contenders so why give him another shot, cuz he calls himself Street Jesus ?

    • @Ben Vlerick he had more than 6 days but if your going to stick to that then usman also only had 6 days to prepare for a completely different fighter with a different game plan so it makes no sense

    • Who else?

  • Usman should be pound for pound rank No.3

    • @GH Azonto Jones Usman Miocic Izzy Khabib

    • Jones Khabib Miocic Izzy Usman

    • @Chris S lol his corner was laughing while dustin had him. That was nothing for him

    • @Calvin Calvin Khabitch got stunned by Gaethje and poirier, and almost guillotined by a striker (Poirier) that never happened to Usman in the UFC. Usman would KO khabib

    • Chris S Usman got stunned by Burns. Khabib never got hit like that

  • "HEAD MOVEMENT" Ex Karamu coaches

  • The best part is Dana calling these badass fighters "kid"

    • truth

    • Dana is from the northeast, kid is similar to “guy” up there

    • @MMA BEAST no

    • @robm94 L yeah exactly lol I thought he would be younger than usman at least

    • Look at the video I made of Ariel Helwani crying because Dana white called him a ‘douche’ 🤣🤣

  • If Izzy stays up at 205 the only thing usman has is 185

  • Gilbert got robbed

  • Usman vs Gsp make it happen Dana white

    • People like you should be quarantined. GSP is retired for good reason. This is a new era. Let the man enjoy himself.

    • Usman would be charged with murder

    • 👎

    • Every part of you is worth all the love in the world. It's the reason why I fell in love with you in the first place.

    • That would make absolutely no sense

  • Dana just continues to impress check out those 8k cameras it felt like i was live with the fighters

    • @Nicola Maxwell k

    • @M M Lost the war? Jeezo that was weak.

    • @Crossley Ryan Thanks incel

    • @M M hilarious again

    • @Crossley Ryan stick to your cricket Y’all lost the war for a reason

  • Gilbert won that fight.

  • Cheer up, Dana.

  • Dana fala sério jogou durinho contra uma rocha

  • He's sad that Usman won.. he saw a star in Gilbert.. xD

    • @Mikko i never see people talking about his personality, i see lots of people making foot stomps jokes and saying he'll beat his opponents by laying on them

    • @Isaac Mendes so what about khabib then? He looks bigger than dc a heavyweight but no one complains about that

    • @Sumit Kataria i think people don't respect Usman because of his style that is overpowering his opponents with his power, pressure and wrestling, and the fact that he is always the biggest fighter in there, he looks like a middleweight bullying everybody.

    • @Steelfixer For Life don't mean that.. Burns is a great fighter.. just want to say that if he won today, uncle Dana would be happier, because Burns is more marketable. Even Usman is fighting interesting fights people don't seem to like him

    • Oh you think Burns is finished?? Didn’t you see how close he was

  • Kamuru a Dog he’s becoming even more scary with his Striking

    • Look at the video I made of Ariel Helwani crying because Dana white called him a ‘douche’ 🤣🤣

    • @Anthony Sefo lmao

    • He gets better every fight, most definitely deserves more respect

    • Nigerian that’s why

  • I love how nobody ever drinks the Monster "energy drinks"

    • @Dailyjay 17 😁😁😁😁

    • @R B when life was good

    • they can drink their occult 666 poisen them selfs - Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux Non Dacro Sit Mihi Dux Vade retro satana Sunt Mala Dibas Ipse Venena Bibas

    • @Fuk Face Max Holloway. I watched him drink one.
