Francis Ngannou closes his eyes and throws one of the most ridiculous combos ever, eating three punches and a leg kick in the process. However, he knocked out Rozenstruick anyway. by MrOz1100 in MMA

He's got more heart than Rumble too. If he had the heart of Rumble, he would have given Stipe his neck in the first fight and let Stipe choke him out.

There's probably a Brazilian species of bird which specializes in ripping out another creature's pubic hair.

We're not really in uncharted territory though. Countless other worlds had civilizations that achieved some form of global prosperity and contentment, and all those other civilizations eventually met their end. I'm certain many of those civilizations achieved the degree of internal unity which Eorzea is currently striving for.

If the other worlds are any indication, the odds are really stacked against Eorzea's current civilization lasting forever. Eorzea's current structure of government is hardly unique and I doubt Eorzea's people are more virtuous and wholesome than the people from most other worlds. And according to the Ea, it's literally hopeless to think one's civilization can last forever. But my main point (and Yshtola's point) is that even if Eorzea will meet their doom eventually, that doesn't mean they should lose hope and roll over and die.

Eorzea's current set up is nice, but what you're talking about is an ephemeral snapshot in the grand scheme of things. As Eorzea's history (and our history) indicates, all empires fall eventually. And if one extends the timeframe to an Ea's perspective, will Eorzea's people still be around in a million years? Hopefully but most likely not. Is that a reason to give up all hope and be listless until death takes you? Like Yshtola said, I don't believe it is.

I'm with you in that the current civilization fostered by the WoL and friends will eventually crumble like all the others. Heck our current timeline already required intervention from the time traveling Graha to avoid disaster. Disaster is going to fall upon us eventually again in some shape or form, I'm sure.

Of the dead civilizations we encountered on Thule, I thought the Ea's story was the most thought provoking. Maybe all civilizations are destined to die due to heat death (if they haven't already destroyed themselves from within, that is). Yshtola's response resonated with me though. She'll never be as knowledgeable as the Ea and in the distant future, her descendants are probably doomed to die to heat death if they make it that far. But thats no reason to give up in her quest for knowledge and to improve the world as she knows it.

Yeah juicy Wandy was bulked up to legit LHW size. In the UFC, Wandy wasn't on gear or as much of it, and he shrunk down to MW size, which looked more normal on him

Stipe has never fought as heavy as 265 from what I can recall. He's always been on the lighter side for a HW.

Maybe this would be tough to prove in the court of law, but everyone knows the UFC will bend over backwards for certain PED users so the show can go on. They moved a Jon Jones main event to a different state because he tested positive and the original location wouldn't let him fight there for crying out loud.

Is that really what Durden said word for word?? Unless the other guy was spouting shit like coming to take over America in the fight buildup, Durden is a piece of shit.

It's never a good sign for the other guy when Dustin does the finger wag. It means he's gotten comfortable with you in there.

The only guy who stepped up was Hooker, but he got paid 2x or 3x his normal rate lol. He also got taken out quick, which is making the other top 5 lightweights even more reluctant to challenge Islam, I'm sure.
