Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

I decided to watch the fight again today while I was sober and that was definitely a tough one to call. I see rounds 1 and 2 going to Diaz, 3 and 4 to Condit, and the 5th really could of gone either way. I expected the fight to be a lot more entertaining, Carlos stuck with the safe game plan and ou...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

I am not really sure why people are saying Condit was unwilling to engage and "ran" the entire fight. This really couldn't be farther from the truth. If you want to see someone run an entire fight and not engage, check out Kalib Starnes vs Nate Quarry or Houston Alexander vs Kimbo Slice! His whole ...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Running away and circling to get off the fence are two very different things. Of course condit had a plan, and not getting caught on the fence was a big part of it. Look at condits overall record and tell me he doesn't leave it all out there. Some people are saying rematch before gsp is healthy, so...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Is there a gif of Nick calling out Condit, and bitch slapping him? That would be one of my favorite gifs; up there with Werdum slapping Arlovski.

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

The Greg Jackson "fight safe/like a pussy" strategy at work again. This could have been a great fight, but all Condit did was run away...run away...run away. Just saying, jacksons fighters as of late have been finishing fighters. And Condit of all people is a beast. Cant blame him for getting out o...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

I had Sonnen winning the 1st and 3rd rounds, and thought Joe Rogan was being a bit biased in favor of Bisping during his commentating. I didn't see the fight the same way at all as Rogan (and apparently other people) especially when he thought Sonned needed to finish Bisping to get the win. Kudos to...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

If I may ask...what do you do for the UFC professionally?? Personally I prefer Mir to Florian in the booth. Also read theres an AUS Vs. UK TUF after the Brazil one, with the Finals possibly scheduled for Brisbane which is about an hours drive for me...may get to see my first UFC event live... Then ...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

I was always under the impression that "keyboard warriors" didn't fight or train. I think Delta does some training. I really like Sonnen. He's a good fighter and does a great job of hyping the fight. Both him and Nick Diaz (I guess Nate to a lesser extent) are great about hyping the fight and trying...

Frank is getting TKO'd.

I look forward to the Sonnen/Bisping fight. The fudge talking leading up to the fight will be great. I'll be pulling for Chael.

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Does no-one think Hominick tried taking a cheap shop at the KZ immediately after they touched? Normally the fighters touch then circle away before engaging. Hominick touched and then continued forward to throw the right hook..it missed and KZ clocked him beautifully, which he deserved for his under...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Has any other fighter broken the arm of 2 fighters in the UFC? I've seen Aoki break two arms. The worst one I've seen was when he broke Hirota's arm. You could actually see the arm snap. I think he was out for at least 6 months. Expect Nog to be on the shelf for at least that long; however, this in...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

I think I can see someone on this thread that has the potential to be certified .... I see what you did there. lol Love or hate Mir, his ground game is the real deal to be able to submit Big Nog. Do you remember when Josh Barnett had him in a nasty knee bar? He rode out the pain until time ran out,...
