By Mike Bohn November 21, pm. Page is seemingly happy to go along for the ride, too, which has generated frustration and resentment from fans. But any enjoyment from watching him dance around the cage and clown utterly hapless foes fizzled long ago. To his credit, Page has done some good things. Fans got what they were asking for when Page joined the Bellator welterweight grand prix, which was an eight-man field that consisted only of proven talent. The loss to Lima fueled every ounce of negativity fans had toward Page.
Of course, that proved to be hogwash, with Page clowning Kiely before stopping him by flying-knee knockout in less than three minutes. And why not?
Pros and Cons of the UFC Ignoring Their Own Rankings When Matchmaking
Originally it was a No. Angulo , 20 KOs is a former world title challenger whose lone career loss came to Gilberto Ramirez in by unanimous decision. He would have been coming off a surprising split decision win over then-undefeated prospect Anthony Sims Jr.
England’s Page rebounded from his first defeat with a spectacular, viral knockout moment at an event in the U.K. Fight fans aren’t clueless.
Both fighters are slightly behind her in the rankings and provide interesting matchups— could JoJo get the stand up war she has been bargaining for against Lee? While her Octagon record stands at , Hill has built a reputation for being a fun fighter who is willing to step in anytime and anywhere. Someone who would be more than willing to stand and trade with Hill is former title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz. After , she is asking for a top ten opponent.
It is a clash of striking styles that has FOTN potential. If not Grasso, Cynthia Calvillo is currently ranked number ten and makes for an interesting styles clash with Xiaonan when she returns from injury. She sets a relentless pace and pushes forward no matter what the opponent throws at her. A fight with Angela Hill is a fun striking affair as both fighters throw heavy volume and engage frequently.
Cortney Casey is another fan friendly fighter who always comes to throw down and is ranked only two spots lower than Kowalkiewicz in the top fifteen. Grasso showed up in her best form to date— she looked more mature physically and seemed completely zoned in all fight week.
‘Ultimate UFC Experience’ contest winner gets to hang with Halle Berry and ‘make a fight’
The main event was initially supposed to be Khabib Nurmagomedov defending his UFC lightweight title against Tony Ferguson in Brooklyn, but the coronavirus forced the event out of New York and Nurmagomedov got stuck in Russia due to travel restrictions. The venue is on Native American, sovereign land, and therefore didn’t have to abide by the state’s regulations. Nobody wants to see sports return more than we do, but we didn’t feel this was the right time for a variety of reasons.
Okamoto: Pay him some compensation for a camp that began back in December, and a willingness to move on to Justin Gaethje when Khabib Nurmagomedov became unavailable. Then promote him during this downtime, encourage people to watch his fights, get to know him, see what an entertaining and talented fighter he is. And then book that man to a championship fight against Nurmagomedov for the sixth time.
UFC President Dana White announces a new contest and offers fight fans a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a fight of his/her choice. The matchmaking process will go on as usual, besides an additional guest (the.
There were great back and forth contests as well as plenty of finishes that had the MMA fan base buzzing all night. Junior dos Santos — Following all of the fights this past Saturday, I think this is the toughest future to predict and that is simply because of the state of the Heavyweight division. It seems victory for anyone in the top 10 could potentially launch themselves into consideration for title contention.
JDS was very honest with himself following the loss, admitting a long road ahead to another title opportunity. Francis Ngannou — I would really like to see Francis get one more under his belt but that is unlikely because of the state of the division. If he does not receive a shot at the winner of Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic, Volkov is the only option as Francis has made quick work of the top 5 in the division.
Joseph Benavidez — Henry Cejudo. This one is easy. He just beat the 1 contender in Formiga and already holds a win over the current champion. Demian Maia — It is no surprise that Maia needed a win here to remain in the top fifteen in the Welterweight division. A fight with 15 Vicente Luque would make for an outstanding stylistic contest.

‘Seriously dangerous’: Fastest KO ever leaves boxing fans fuming
By the time Henry Cejudo left the Octagon on Saturday night at UFC , after defending his bantamweight title against Dominick Cruz and announcing his retirement , the skeptics among his fellow fighters questioned whether the champ was seriously quitting or putting on another performance. But one thing skeptics didn’t question during the event was the ability of Justin Gaethje , who dominated Tony Ferguson in the main event and then refused to put on the interim lightweight belt.
He wants the real thing, which currently belongs to Khabib Nurmagomedov. What would that fight look like? If Gaethje fights the way he did Saturday, he’ll be hard to beat. On the opposite end of the spectrum was Donald Cerrone , who lost his fourth consecutive bout.
Most fight fans probably would agree UFC was worth the wait. But he’s definitely at the point in his career where matchmaking matters.
GGPO short for Good Game Peace Out is middleware designed to help create a near- lagless online experience for various emulated arcade games and fighting games. The program was created by Tony Cannon, co-founder of fighting game community site Shoryuken and the popular Evolution Championship Series. Video game companies have also implemented a licensed version of GGPO. Rather than waiting for input to be received from other players before simulating the next frame, GGPO predicts the inputs they will send and simulates the next frame without delay using that assumption.
The hope is that the predictions will be correct most of the time, allowing smooth play with minimal sudden changes to the game state. The client program can allow players to manually adjust native input delay in high-ping situations, either creating a possibly-jerky yet accurate representation or a smoother game with input delay. GGPO was originally bundled with a client which enabled users to play supported games online with other players.
A matchmaking system allowed players to request challenges from other users, while non-participants could spectate the match and chat. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved

The undefeated Estrada approached her flat-footed year-old opponent, Miranda Adkins, as soon as the bell rang and landed a left and right combo with little fight back. Adkins appeared hesitant and hardly raised her guard as Estrada followed it up with another left-right combo, which knocked Adkins clean out as she fell through the ropes. A seven-second KO for Seniesa Estrada. In scary scenes, Adkins lay motionless on the canvas for a few moments before she recovered and was able to exit the ring.

Call of Duty: Warzone, the new battle royale mode released today for Modern Warfare players and as a standalone, free-to-play download, has several features that set it apart from other titles in the genre. While Infinity Ward and Activision haven’t released any detailed information about exactly how Warzone assembles its player lobbies , the folks at popular Call of Duty news site CharlieIntel report that Warzone does not employ skill-based matchmaking:.
Again, in regards to matchmaking, Infinity Ward’s studio head Pat Kelly told us that there is no skill based matchmaking in any large player count modes in Modern Warfare, and that will include Warzone. Within the communities for Apex Legends and Fortnite, skill-based matchmaking has become a contentious issue. For some, the idea that players in a battle royale game should be matched to players of a similar skill level is antithetical to the way they want matches to feel.
If you’re a player of average skill, being placed into a game with zero care taken to find similarly skilled opponents means you’ll likely run into both low skill and high skill players in any given match. The better you are at the game, the reasoning goes, the more likely you’re going to feel like skill-based matchmaking is a punishment: instead of regularly finding low and average skill players to mop the floor with, each fight stands a greater chance of being a hard one for you to win.
Back before Fortnite had its soft reboot at Season 11 as Chapter 2, Epic announced it would add skill-based matchmaking and bots in the next season and faced immediate pushback from fans. It was recently disabled in Fortnite’s Team Rumble playlist. With Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment says that it has always employed skill-based matchmaking at some level since launch. During Apex’s third season, though, ire toward skill-based matchmaking reached a fever pitch.
UFC 251: Through thick and thin, Dana White keeps finding a way to win fans over during quarantine
I saw several debuts and took notice of the way they prepared themselves, carried themselves, acted in the ring before the fight, and of course…their techniques and strategy during the fight. It goes without saying that preparation is key. Your natural ability, skill, and training have a large part to do with winning. This is the truth and dirty side of boxing.
White again, landed a huge main event for the summer that fans have Watch Now: Jorge Masvidal Prepares For Title Fight On Six Days Notice () with subpar matchmaking and seen both injuries and positive COVID.
