    I use Ziploc. Most bags have worked fine for me, with the exception of Wilkos freezer bags. which have failed at temps as low as 65 degrees.

    Awesome event, and Holloway was just incredible. Cannot believe how good he is sometimes - definitely the FW GOAT. They're talking about setting up a rematch with Conor, and he deserves the payday, but man it's hard to see how Conor could get anywhere with modern-day Max. Shevchenko was excellent, and it's the first time I've found Joanna likeable in a while. Gunni picked up a big win, and that bleeding was horrendous. I hope he starts to fulfil his potential soon. He has so many tools, but it's tough in a wrestler-heavy division. Manuwa has never really been very good. But he's a guaranteed show, one way or the other. I assume he's cut-proof due to UK marketability and LHW shallowness, but he doesn't belong in the top 10.

    Holloway/Ortega is super compelling to me. In theory, Holloway is just a level above any 145lber who has ever existed. But Ortega keeps looking incredible and Holloway's health issues may still be a factor. Heart says Holloway, but head says we may see a new champ.

    It's a totally shit fight choice for me. We get no answers about Askren's grappling at the highest level, and the chance for the hype balloon to burst before it's even begun to inflate. Not to mention the crowd turning on Askren immediately when he doesn't let Lawler stand and bang. No fans. A medium scalp. Bad style matchup. Big risk. Ugh.

    Alongside Diaz/Santiago, UFC 234 has just added another fight I had no idea i needed, but I do: Anderson Silva vs Israel Adesanya. Woo.

    Absolute barnburner. Who knew that Tito and Chuck could turn back the clock so far? Ngannou didn't really prove anything in that fight, neither did Blaydes. We all knew that he had unholy power, but I suspect his game is still full of holes. If only Curtis had gotten to test him a bit with some of that wrestling.

    Disney is a hyper-aggressive machine, but I don't doubt for a second that a whole generation of kids will be blown away by this in the same way that we were by the 2D animation.

    Digitiser:The Show: Episode 5 out now!

    Yup. Seems weird everyone's got such beef about this when edits of studio films have got a big fanbase.

    I have a non-connected circulator (a gen1 Sansaire) and I would quite like to be able to trigger it remotely. It would be a cool thing to have, so that your food is ready when you get home or whatever.

    Nothing to temper really. He's fought with a seemingly low fight IQ for years, ditching BJJ and relying on his chin, cardio and sloppy volume.

    That is some excellent matchmaking. Probably the Nick Diaz fight I'm most interested in seeing, and I'd never even thought of it til now! Ticks the boxes: irrelevant to title picture, stand and bang, thug life. Bring it on.

    Re: Korean Zombie - it was a little unusual, but not unprecedented. They introduced Mirko Filipovic as Mirko Crocop. And in Japan I think he was even Mirko Tiger for a while. I think that if they're selling merch, then they probably don't care.

    To be fair, as much as I used the opportunity to get in my standard-issue Dig at Dana®, I had CSJ winning that one too.

    If Dana actually has any knowledge of this sport, and you have to assume he does, he's certainly never revealed it in public
