    UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cerrone

    That hasn't gone to trial and I'd appreciate if everyone kept quiet while I try to run out the clock on the statute of limitations. For the record, I have never met that woman before, so there's no way I would have known how old she was.

    I think that would be absolutely dynamite. Boxing sucks anyway.

    I do not accept this. You have to quit entirely. It's terrible for your health, it will lead to an early death and the quality of life for a smoker is simply lower. Smoking is a disgusting habit and it is beneath you. I wouldn't bother concerning myself about this with someone I didn't like or respect.

    Classic Boxer's 2020 Fitness and Training Goals

    I have updated the original post to include a few more forum members.
  5. These threads, distinguished by year, have always been the best part of the forum. Last year's participation might have been an all-time low. This was due to a decline in popularity of this forum in general. It doesn't matter what the topic, or what section for that matter, people just aren't posting here as much as they used. I blame it on the trolls that lurk here. It's impossible to start a discussion without some online troll ruining it. The mods just let it happen. So be it. This year, I'm going to do something a little different. I'm going to assign some goals to the forum members who have been participating. I'll choose a few members at random. If I miss you, you can speak up and then I'll give you a goal. You should try to accomplish these goals. I have your best interest in mind, so just do it. StompGrind - Quit smoking. Also, I want you to run 2 miles in less than 15 minutes. I don't know how well you can run, but this figure is achievable. Hell, you might even already be able to do it. Bubba Sparks - Choose a lift; barbell squat, deadlift or bench press. I want you to beat your personal best in one of these lifts. I know you're a runner, which is why I chose this goal for you. Also, I want you to beat a personal best in one of your shorter distance races, whichever one you choose. NoCake - I would like you to participate in one sanctioned amateur contest of your choosing in the field of combat sports. It will be fun. You can go to a bjj tournament, take an ammy kickboxing contest or a boxing match or whatever. I'm not sure if you've ever done anything like that, but most people haven't so I assume you probably haven't either. It'll be a helluva'n experience. IDYB - Participate in this forum in a serious manner. Choose a fitness goal and go for it. TwennyFo - I'd like for you to participate in this thread, too. Choose any goal, you'd like. PlatinumClegg - I believe you used to train. Join a BJJ gym. Amunera - You appear to be a pretty terrific athlete, your run times are great. I don't want to get in the way of that, so I will just issue you a pull-up challenge. This shouldn't get in the way of your current training regimen. See how many you can work up to in a single set. I'd like you to have your eye on 30 reps. Nyte - I seem to remember you were always trying to lose weight. My memory isn't one of my strengths, so I could be wrong, but I don't think I am. I also feel I remember you always working out and dieting to achieve your goals. This year, I would like you to instead get passionate about a sport; lose weight that way. Obviously, I would recommend some sort of combat sport, but rollerblading sounds pretty awesome Ninja Warrior training sounds like it would be a blast. Whatever you want, but this year I request that you mostly skip the gym and just get passionate about a sport and have a blast. Rumbin - It seems you're interested in this thread, so I'm going to give you a goal. My general lack of participation on this forum makes some members less familiar to me, so I'm going to choose something more random; not quite so tailor-made to your needs. Boxing. I want you to start boxing. I want you to get really committed to boxing and I want you to take AT LEAST TWO AMATEUR FIGHTS. If you're over 30, you can do something else, but you have to post about it. If you're under 30, you have no choice in this matter. You have to do it. Jolldan - I'd like you to get really crafty with the jump rope, master lots of skipping patterns and be able to perform double-unders consecutively. Also since you've lost a lot of weight, I would like you to get really good at pull-ups, monkey bars, and rope-climbing. In fact, I'd like for everyone to join a bjj gym. Wouldn't that be something? That would be incredible if all of a sudden, a lot of us were actively training in the sport which launched the UFC. That would really be something.

    I will.

    Also this: if no one else minds, I would like to do start the 2020 Fitness and Training Goals. Really, it is the only reason I have left to visit this forum.

    ClassicBoxer's 2019 fitness thread

    2019 felt like a decent year for me, fitness-wise. I was 40 years old throughout most of 2019 and I ran occasionally, lifted weights a few times a week, and practiced BJJ 2 or 3 times a week, most weeks. I look alright and I feel alright. I'm certain I will stay active and mobile well into my senior years.
  9. Shoot, you don't know what you're talking about. None of those gals put up a fight; they were drugged. No one ever left bloody or conscious. It doesn't matter anymore, I have been reduced to driving a Toyota Corolla. Doesn't mean I'm out of business, it just means that my tactics have changed. Still, though...Khabib's title is about as legitimate as the employment dates on my resume.
  10. Every champion in every single division in the UFC grew up wrestling (besides the Stylebender, but he's an anomoly.) Not only that, every single division's former champion was a wrestler before being beaten by the current champion. Every single one. The UFC literally cleared the 155 pound division of wrestlers so that there could be a Muslim champion. This happened literally months after Flash Entertainment (an Abu Dhabi corporation) nailed down a deal to invest in the UFC. That's when Khabib first made his entrance into the promotion. In 12 bouts, Khabib has not faced a D1 level wrestler even once...in a sport dominated by wrestlers. So let's stop with this nonsense about Khabib bringing some integrity to the sport.

    Black Friday Combat Gear!

    I got two Hemp Gis from Hypnotik, one in black and one in Navy! They are the best-looking kimonos I have ever seen by a really, really wide margin! And they're made from Hemp! Buy one, get one free; I couldn't pass it up! What did you get? (I don't want to hear about computers or video games.)
  12. I'm not going to lie, I wasn't trying to troll. I confused OSP with Corey Anderson for a moment. And let's be honest, if you saw either one of them trying to sell single-cigarettes at a bus stop, could you really tell them apart?
  13. I wonder how many people he dealt with dishonestly in his profession as a banker in order to raise the money to quit working for two years at such a young age and travel to every country on the planet?
  14. There's literally no advantage to going synthetic.
  15. I like GSP. I don't think Khabib would stand a chance. I haven't read the article and I probably won't. Freddie Roach is a moron. I really dislike him, and I think he is where he is by luck alone. I don't think he has ever trained a fighter from the ground up, just every once in a while coached a guy for a few fights who was already talented. He is not universally respected by fighters who used to work with him. If you listen to him, he is an idiot. I like you, though. IDYB is alright in my book.
