Poirier stomps Pettis, Werdum-Tybura preview (Heavy Hands #185)

New, 10 comments

Connor and Pat give the upcoming Werdum-Tybura card a look, and then reflect on the outcomes of UFC Norfolk and its main event, Dustin Poirier vs Anthony Pettis.

"It borders on interesting" isn't the most compelling description of a fight card, but that's about how good UFC Sydney looks to us, despite a solid-enough main event in Werdum vs Tybura. Still, we highlight our favorite parts of the card, before reflecting on the outcomes of UFC Norfolk, an event which delivered a puzzling mix of drudgery and excitement.

Dustin Poirier took a page out of the Rafael Dos Anjos playbook and smashed Pretty Tony Pettis in the main event. Raphael Assuncao reminded us that, yes, he is one of the best bantamweights on earth and a fascinating fighter worth watching. Matt Brown reconsidered retirement after catching Diego Sanchez with a savage elbow, reconstituting his human body into a pile of miscellaneous parts in the process.

It was wild. So, you know. Listen to us talk about it.
