no man, i grew up watching boxing in the 80's - now i mostly go for mma, just because it seems like the best fighters imho are to be found there (ufc, strikeforce etc), and not in regular pugilism. i still like standup and am not a big fan of half-naked, sweaty men rolling around on the floor, but it's the times i guess... no roses without thorns, said the cat that f*cked the porcupine.

Dana White said at the start of this year that it'll be the year of superbouts...
Anderson silva vs GSP or silva vs Jones.
Silva says he won't do either

Watched one of the proposed Superfights - Jose Aldo vs Frankie Edgar.
I love watching Aldo - for the first 2 rounds of a fight - after that, if they go that long, tend to drag on.
But when he is fresh, he is phenomenal.
His leg-kicks are brutal and his take-down defence is 2nd to none in MMA imo.

Edgar is a tough-as-nails kid from New Jersey, who was Lightweight champion but lost a tough decision to Benson Henderson. Then he dropped down to this weight for this fight.
He's been in some real close scraps - any of the 3 with Gray Maynard, 2 with Ben Henderson and now with Aldo.

Aldo won the points decision, but could've gone other way considering Edgar probably won round 4 and possibly 3 and 5.

On the same card, it was good to see Alistair Overeem back. He looked massive as ever, and should have beaten Bigfoot Silva. He was clearly the better fighter, but kept his hands down to show disrespect, and subsequently got smashed in the 3rd.
I don't really rate Bigfoot that much - he seems durable and tough, but doesn't have outstanding offensive weapons like Cain Velasquez or Junior.Dos Santos.
Overeem is an interesting case. He potentially could beat either of them, should he get the chance.

I'm not totally surprised that Weidman beat him - Weidman has destroyed everyone he's been in front of, and one of the best wrestling bases in mma - but to lose like that...
Anderson's run is over, but to think how untouchable he has been for so long, the dude is a freak

22-11-13, 09:50 AM
It was not so long ago that Jones and Gustafsson fought for the LHWT . Was highly controversial , many people including me thought the Swede grabbed it.

But in this fight it was evident that Johny Hendricks won , I mean look at their faces :lol:

Angelis
23-11-13, 04:40 PM
that decision was rediculous, GSP got beat up for the first time ive seen

Craig Forrest
29-11-13, 10:22 PM
Here's the thing with the GSP fight.... GSP clearly won rounds 3 and 5..... Hendricks clearly won rounds 2 and 4 (and did a shitload of damage to GSP in those rounds).... that leaves it up to who the judges thought won the first round.... and in a championship fight if it's close then you're probably going to lean more towards the champ than the challenger... especially if it's the first round

if you base the decision on who took the most punishment, then GSP is the obvious loser.... but that's not how fights are scored.... I'm a huge GSP fan and I'm torn because round 1 was really close.... but it sure looked like GSP came off worse overall... but since 2 of the judges thought he won the first round then it's a clear explanation of why the fight was 48-47, 48-47, and 47-48.... even the judge who gave the nod to Hendricks had it close

also, if it's true that GSP's dad is on his deathbed and he hadn't slept for two days before the fight then I can understand why he performed the way he did... hopefully we get a rematch soon.... that wasn't the normal GSP performance I'm used to seeing

Angelis
30-11-13, 09:54 AM
If GSP wasnt in the right frame of mind to fight he should have fought. you cant go in to the octagon unless you're fully mentally prepared. you're standing 2 feet from someone who trains their whole life to fight trying to knock you out, it cant end well

GSP should take on silva soon, there arent any belts on the line at the moment but they are still the best 2 fighters for the last 10 years and time could be running out to see it happen

Robbie still has the same flaws as he did when he was tearing up UFC first time around until Pete Spratt utterly laid them bare. Similarly Manhoef just took him apart and was clowning him until a split second of overconfidence saw Lawler rip his head off.

Not that I don't love the guy but it's interesting how he's still just a game fighter with good hands and good takedown defence.

It won't happen. However, I assume that they'll have to find a relative novice to face him. The commissions are much more cautious than they used to be, though Florida and Texas can be soft touches. I imagine they want his debut to be in Chicago but it'd have to be against a guy who wouldn't ordinarily get a look-in for a UFC fight. We're talking King of the Cage/Wild Bill's Fight Night-level guy.

Anyone watch UFC189? Some calling it the best numbered event ever.

It was decent but BEST! SHOW! EVER! can never be judged at the time. Was pleased to see Robbie Lawler continue his career renaissance. It doesn't seem that long ago he was fighting Frank Trigg in Hawaii at middleweight because neither guy could be bothered to cut weight.

Liam
13-07-15, 03:35 PM
Great card but wouldn't say the best either. I've loved Robbie Lawler since his earlier days as a 21 year old in the UFC, what I like to call the "Phil Baroni Era" (I was a huge Baroni fan, even though he wasn't that great) . It is great to see him as champion.

On the prelim card, Cody Garbrandt had one hell of a performance. I tip him to go quite far in the sport, currently 7-0 and only 24 years old.

Move of the night was the fade away knee by Stephens, to come back like that was class. However, bit disgraced that he failed to make weight for a fight that could have been his last in UFC (2 losses before that).

McGregor vs Mendes did not disappoint. McGregor had his body hurt at the early stages of round one. I don't think we got to see the real Mendes because of that, he did take him down a few times but didn't capitalise on it. McGregor had a gameplan, stuck to it, and it worked out brilliantly for him.

When watching Lawler in this fight, he got caught, sure, but he's so ludicrously durable that rattling him is meaningless. Melvin Manhoef lit him up like a Christmas tree but Robbie put him out with one punch whilst he basically had one leg.

Just saw the highlight and not the actual fight. That flurry against the fence reminded me of a young Vitor Belfort.

He is only 19 and is still practising technique as he says it himself. He wont have a fight camp for a specific fight, he just have to keep practising technique.

Saw him hitting pads at the UFC 192 open workout and it looked very impressive!

Everybody enjoy the weekend of fights?

One thing I thought I'd say while I'm here, the refereeing recently has been brilliantly forceful. Big John is back to his no-nonsense best, Herb Dean and Marc Goddard have been fantastically and correctly picky too. Herb Dean's work in the Henderson/Masvidal fight where he stopped the end of the round because Bendo had been fouled with a second to go was a masterwork.

Great block of Aldo's right fist to set-up the knock out. Quite close to double knockout too in fairness to Aldo

EDIT: on further viewing it was just a gauge to confirm what Aldo was going to do, feint right, hook left

It seems to me that the scouting for McGregor was that if he could get Aldo swinging and wanting to kill him, he could time the big right hand. To get Aldo into that frame of mind, he went to psychological war for months.

He tapped out in the second round so only 1 five minute round previous to that. He was meant to fight someone else at 145/155lbs but that guy broke his foot and pulled out and then matched McGregor with Diaz but at 170lbs. It all played in to Diaz's hands at the end of the day, McGregor was smacking Diaz and Diaz was just absorbing the punches.

He didn't seem as focused for it as previous fights. You couldn't have that discussion with anyone here as they are blindly mad about him or hate him (not many in between)

Tactics weren't great, going on the attack against a guy with 4 inches of height and 2.5 of reach on you always going to get him tenderized. Once he tried to wrestle him that was game over.

Course I was. But it's been hysteria here both ways. If you mentioned he wasn't focused or something was amiss or Diaz longer range was a worry you'd get 2 responses "are you crazy, he's the greatest there is" or "good I hope he's gets hammered". There was in no between for rational thought.

We're a nation of event junkies / bandwagoners. Case in point look at the crowds in Poland for Euro 2012. In 5 or 6 full rounds of LOI there wouldn't be that many fans at all the games combined. Yes it's a different level of event but it's still the same sport. The UFC will see it first hand if McGregor loses again, the 'diehards' will be nowhere to seen. Bernard Dunne got KO'd by a relative no-one and he went from 'a national hero' to 'shite' in about 2 seconds. There does seem to be a bit of sense in understanding that it's not like boxing where being undefeated in a career is plausible.

Luckily 2 of my mates have been fans since the beginning (Randy Couture, Chuck Lidell days) so they could see the danger for McGregor. One of them even mentioned that if it went to the mat McGregor would be in big trouble. But there are very few here that would think along those lines. Maybe now his streak has ended can actually talk about his next fight sensibly :)

It was game over long before he tried to wrestle him. The wrestling was a last resort panic move, cuz Diaz was making scrambled eggs inside Mcgregors head.

If Mcgregor would have stayed standing he`d go lights out or tko pretty fast.

Would of liked to see Mcgregor use his movement more and not trade so many shots with Diaz though

Look forward to both these guys next fights, as always :boxing:

Well put Dermo. Must admit I've taken more interest since McGregor's rise in the UFC; it's everywhere on my Facebook with people sharing his pre-fight antics. He is entertainment personified and you can't knock him for the game plan he has to make bank. Prior to Diaz he backed it up as well which was his biggest pull. Jose Aldo has already said he wants a rematch at UFC 200 which would be interesting but I'd like to see McGregor fight Dos Anjos.

Indeed Janis. As he says himself he underestimated the shots needed for hitting a guy that's 145 and 170.

One thing I found impressive was how quickly he analysed the fight. He was quick to realize how Diaz managed his energy (which Diaz referenced in his interview a few hours later) and he'd blown himself out.


Is ankle lock allowed in UFC btw?

The main group of people that are UFC fans that dislike McGregor seem to be the guys from the original few years (he's a fairly marmite character too though). It's kinda reminiscent of people who followed the early days of the Champions League and those who essentially know football through the current Champions League (or when people talk about football like it only started in 1992/93)


He'll have to defend his title so against Aldo seems like it be a huge draw. Aldo won't be injured for that one :D

Thoughts from the UFC 200 on the night.
- Still annoyed by the TUF Finale. The judges in the women's strawweight title fight were fucking clownshoes. Joanna Jędrzejczyk is waiting to be beaten.
- Ugh, yellow canvas? Looks like fucking Cage Rage.

Miller/Gomi
- Wow, they're wearing personalised shorts with colours! Perhaps Reebok will finally pick their game up.
- SHIT ME, why do they wheel Gomi out? He's long since finished.
- It still looks like Cage Rage. Former PRIDE guy with a name gets comfortably beaten. It's exactly the same.
- Mike Goldberg is good at his job because he unapologetically spews corporate rubbish with great conviction.

Mousasi/Santos
- What makes the Cage Rage thing even more pronounced is that Bruce Buffer is dressed so similarly to the late Cage Rage MC Mark Aplin. "With a background in Mixed Martial Arts..."
- Mousasi looked very crisp but this was his sort of fight. He's a better hammer than a nail...

Sanchez/Lauzon
- Phew, Diego Sanchez, who looked half dead on Thursday night, thankfully is rehydrated and looking good.
- I wonder if Diego still gets energy from the rain?
- Apparently not. This is surely it for Diego. Too many miles on the clock, he's 45 in fighter years. Good job from Joe Lauzon for putting leather on him and then keep putting leather on him.

Northcutt/Marin
- Enrique Marin is doing an Oliver McCall and crying on the way down to the cage. You wouldn't know he was in the match based on the hype in the early prelims show. Christ, Sage Northcutt has an eminently punchable face. Come on Enrique, do it for your country.
- Stop apologising for this shithouse, Joe Rogan. It's tiresome, Northcutt's paid a disproportionately to his skill level, this isn't haters gonna hate, this is legitimate annoyance.
- "Mark Northcutt's a convicted felon, isn't he Monty?", "It doesn't say that here.", "Well he should be".
- Juvenile reaction to the North-South position from the T-Mobile Arena crowd...
- Adrenaline dump for Enrique Marin, he's utterly exhausted.
- Northcutt's a fraud, he wouldn't even get out of a season of the Ultimate Fighter. 50k to show, 50k to win for a shitarse.

Dillashaw/Assuncao
- Duane Ludwig is the single most-overrated fighter in the history of MMA. There, I said it.
- TJ Dillashaw is like Del Bosque's Spain. Sure, it's all really good but it sucks all the fun out of proceedings.

Hendricks/Gastelum
- Christ, Johny Hendricks. It's as though they've stacked this card full of guys that annoy me. Like Rafael Dos Anjos, he looks deflated since USADA testing. I am implying nothing with this, of course.
- This fantastic wrestler, one punch knockout power... perhaps the aura has gone that he had up until the Robbie Lawler fight has gone but this isn't the same Hendricks. Still, this wasn't a 30-27 fight, Gastelum barely landed in that second round.

Zingano/Pena
- Ah Cat Zingano. Great fighter, shit luck. Beat Miesha Tate, made the stupidest of stupid mistakes against Ronda Rousey, got injured, her ex-husband killed himself. She should be in the main event. She lost. She probably shouldn't have been in the main event but credit to Julianna Pena.

Velasquez/Browne
- Oh... this guy... we've missed this guy. This guy should still be world champion but this guy hasn't turned up for awhile.
- If you didn't know what the fuss was about, Cain Velasquez showed everything which made him loved. Not just a fantastic fighter but a gentleman too. Brown Pride f'sure.

Edgar/Aldo
- I'd love to see a heat map of the first round, they seemed to cover every inch.
- Frankie just can't get his shots off here. Aldo is fighting more slowly and deliberately than he has in the past and he's just sniping.
- For all the post-fight talk of how good his cardio was, Aldo's pacing was actually much improved. He used to fight like a 16-year-old fucks.

Cormier/Silva
- This is why "Right Above It" is on my walk-ins playlist.
- Daniel Cormier is fighting like losing is foremost on his mind.
- I. AM. BORED. AND. TIRED. PLEASE. END.

Hunt/Lesnar
- Mark Hunt fought with a flawed gameplan. This match made me even sleepier than the last one.
- Brock wants to fight full-time, you can just tell. Plus, he has Vince McMahon over a barrel. He'll be back if the money is right.

Nunes/Tate
- Amanda Nunes looks motivated. Miesha Tate looks worried.
- Aren't Miesha and Bryan sweet together. However, it's slightly strange that they fight in the same weight class.
- Oh dear. Miesha Tate of old. Mentally broken by a more aggressive fighter. Jesus, I wouldn't want to be Dana White. Oh well, he'll be gone soon...

POST-SCRIPT
Dana White isn't going anywhere. I am disappointed.

I hate to proclaim myself as wise after the fact but I thought McGregor could win if he fought the sensible fight. Leg kicks, scoring points, the same blueprint that Rafael Anjos and Carlos Condit used successfully against Nate and Nick. It worked long enough to win three rounds on the scorecard of two judges.

Dermotron
24-08-16, 09:02 AM
Got to watch the full fight last night and have a query about 'significant strikes'. How are they judged? Any thrown punch that hits anywhere on the body including arms and legs counted? If it means clean the scoring was way off. Diaz barely landed a shot in the 2nd round up till the last minute but McGregor only outscored him by 3 strikes. Diaz got most of those strike points for simply having a longer range.

Thought Diaz should have gotten the 3rd round 10-8, he absolutely battered McGregor. But as he says, not a mark on him after the fight.McGregor should have gotten the first 10-8, the 2 knock downs when a cm from knockouts. McGregor won the 4th but looked it was very cose. So 10-8, 10-9, 8-10, 10-9 and 9-10. 47-46 to me.

Seems to be a lot of 'oh McGregor was lucky bell went in 3rd and 5th'. True. Diaz was lucky 2 with the shots that knocked him, evens out. And the running away thing is a bit OTT. He done it twice in round 5th, once as gamesmanship, once as fight management. Thought it was smart tbh.

By the rules, nobody knows how significant strikes are scored, as the language is very vague. Jeff Mullen, who is one of the top MMA judges in Vegas and was judge at the weekend, has said in the past that octagon control and other stuff is a tie-breaker, it's striking and grappling that count. At the last convention of the Association of Boxing Commissions about three weeks ago, they made some changes which included the language and criteria surrounding judging, which will come into effect on 1st January. This will formally codify how the major commissions have been training judges up until now, which is that effective grappling and striking are the top tier of judging criteria and those break down by damage, duration and dominance. So, for instance, McGregor would have won rounds 1 and 2 because he did the most damage. Perhaps you can make a case for the other two also but I didn't feel he did enough for a 10-9 by current criteria.

The third round was scored a 10-8 Diaz by Glenn Trowbridge and a 10-9 by the other two. I back the other two because McGregor rolled with a lot of the punches and took them on the arm, Mayweather-style. So while he probably had the duration and dominance going for him, he didn't do enough damage to warrant a 10-9 in my opinion. However, a lot of judging is based on where you are sat around the cage or ring. You might not see that a shot landed flush or didn't land at all.

I agree that McGregor had better ring awareness and better fight management. This was a fight he couldn't afford to lose and he pulled it off. Diaz was lucky in the sense that Conor refused to go to ground with him. He could've ended the fight much sooner but it was clear he felt that going to ground and throwing some punches to finish Nate off was a high risk, low reward activity, especially given Nate's durability.

You reckon Diaz would go to 155 to completely the trilogy? McGregor could do him some serious damage at that weight

faz44
24-08-16, 09:52 PM
Well, they'll have one more fight, for sure. Probably not now but most definitely at lightweight. Conor seemed to be a genuine 168 lbs, which means he could get down to 155. 145 was ridiculous, he looked half dead at weigh-ins due to dehydration.

I'd be interested to see Conor against somebody else. He had big power at 145, the evidence thus far is that he punches hard but no longer stops them dead.

On Diaz at 155 though, I've always felt that he and Donald Cerrone are 155/170 tweeners. Diaz would suit a 163 division. See, the issue is weight cutting. Most guys cut 10% or more in the week of the fight. For instance, Georges St-Pierre held his weight in the mid-to-high 180s to get down to 170. Some guys go even more, Weidman allegedly cuts 30 lbs and so is a heavyweight when he gets in the cage. GSP was offered to go up to middleweight on a number of occasions and he turned it down because he said he'd need to get up to at least 200lbs to compete at middleweight and that would take a year to do properly.

faz44
17-09-16, 11:32 AM
Thoughts up until now? UFC 203 was bittersweet show. The main event was really good, Werdum kicked Edmond "the Career Killer" Tarverdyan and Andrade was very good but the officiating (bar Marc Goddard) was poor, Werdum/Browne was a one-round wonder and Faber and CM Punk's performances were just sad. Apparently, it did well on PPV, entirely down to CM Punk and that will probably decide his long-term future and whether UFC give him another chance (likely after a sabbatical to fight on a local level).

Some good fights coming up, though probably not amazing cards to go along with them. Poirier/Michael Johnson, they're continuing this Cyborg experiment, Lineker/Dodson at bantamweight, Lamas/Penn at featherweight, Dos Anjos/Ferguson at lightweight. UFC 204 looks a decent card, UFC 205 has just added Woodley/Wonderboy for a show that's already stacked and likely to become more stacked.

faz44
19-09-16, 07:36 PM
The Poirier/Johnson main card was interesting. Two big knockouts in the last two fight, the latter of which was entirely predictable. The two middle fights weren't amazing (Dunham/Glenn and Carneiro/Robertson). The opener is probably the best 19 second fight you'll ever see and Makhachev/Wade was an utter grappling clinic. If you're a jiu-jitsu nerd, it's easily fight of the night and one of the best back-and-forth grappling matches for some time.

I know mate dont ya worry ;]

Well, who will be watching Conor vs Floyd? Let's be honest in boxing fight Conor would get insta killed :lol:. But he will be able to use MMA techniques once per round to get some handicap :P.
