    Keeping It Real about Cejudo and Mighty Mouse for a Minute

    If a fighter wants a fight to last less than 5 minutes, it's an option they are quite welcome to try to exercise. Personally, I would like to see more urgency. I think we would see different people at the top. I also like the fact that if they fail to finish, they have to endure the exhaustion they brought about upon themselves. But... ...too many fighters are deathly afraid of this exhaustion, they doubt themselves and their ability to finish their opponent. I want to see more fighters with more belief in themselves.
  2. No one can sign a contract that obligates someone else doing something if they didn't also sign the contract. Unless Georges St. Pierre himself signs a contract, Khabib's contract is toothless.

    ClassicBoxer's 2019 fitness thread

    I was the thread starter for last year's Fitness and Training Goals. The theme I was trying to create for that one was about lifestyle change. It's been about a year and a half and I am proud to say that the changes I made have stuck. I am healthy and strong and I look great. -I'm as strong as I have ever been at any age, maybe stronger. Some moves are not as strong as my best ever, but other moves are quite a bit better. -I run at least a few times a week. I have boundless energy. -I have been walking around 20 pounds lighter than I had been the last 4 years. -I am not hurting or sore anywhere. I feel fantastic. -I only drink Thursday and Saturday night at one of my jobs, after 1:30 am when all the customers are out the door. I have between 1 and 3 drinks; never 4 drinks, but also never 0. I did some calculations and I literally drink less than 5% of what I used to drink per week. -I still go to jujitsu 3 nights a week. I've been at the same gym for over a year and that stability has caught on to other very important areas of my life. I have been able to hang onto 2 jobs during all this time, and my credit score has gone up nearly 200 points (seriously. I have Experian credit monitoring which gives me constant alerts.) I did it. I changed my life, and I'm damn near close to fixing it. Now all I have to do is the hard stuff.
  4. Well, if I was a forum troll with a pear-shaped body, I would declare every single fighter on the UFC roster a can and there would be no such thing as a great fighter. But since I'm not like you, I am quite sure that I know the meaning of the word "great."

  6. I guess your definition of a good fighter is narrower than mine. 99% of people who train mixed martial arts every day couldn't expect to go up against the world's best heavyweights and win 40% of the time...or even 1% of the time. To me, those numbers are REALLY IMPRESSIVE.
  7. What? My post has nothing to do with me. Quit thinking about me. It irritates me when supposed "fans" disrespect these great fighters who give their lives to the sport and put it all on the line for our entertainment, and I AM saying that Tank Abbot is a great fighter. In his prime, and even a few years after his prime, if he was to go to most gyms he would absolutely destroy every single person in there. He was never a can. He wasn't the best fighter on the planet, he was just simply ONE OF THE BEST fighters on the planet, game enough to step in and compete with any of the other best fighters on the planet. For that, anyone who follows this sport needs to be respectful.

    Ortega vs Zabit at UFC 240

    Funny how these undefeated fighters from Dagestan go their entire careers without ever facing a high-level wrestler. It's as plain as day, but no one seems to see it.
  9. What's your record and which internationally recognized promotions did you fight for?
  10. Quit interacting with me. You and I don't have any connection, so the frequency with which you quote me and the animosity you have toward me is odd.
  11. I considered it an almost-great show even with it's maximum-tolerable level of cringe. Several of the characters...pretty much all of the female characters, were just absolutely awful. Some of the episodes had extremely loose plots. There was a lot to like, however. I'm not going to point any of it out, as a few posters might want to give this show a whirl. I encourage them to. It really was a shame that this series got cut short. I'm not sure a movie will enhance the series or even do it much justice; this looks like a cash-grab. I'll still watch it, knowing I will be disappointed.

    Cut MTP

    If this is how he dresses, then the UFC should definitely cut him. I was unaware that Kevin Lee was a homosexual until I saw this photo. The UFC doesn't need this sort of behavior in its ranks.

    Broke up with my g/f over Royce Gracie

    Honestly, I didn't even know who he was. He stopped posting right around the time I started posting.
  15. Bisping used to fight at 205, and was very good. He had a controversial decision loss against Rashad Evans, who had a great fight against Jon Jones (I thought Bisping won. Most people thought Bisping won.) This was a prime Rashad. And Bisping was the champion at 185 when GSP fought him...when GSP destroyed him. Do you really think St. Pierre would have any trouble with that 155 pound chicken**** terrorist who hasn't fought EVEN ONE SINGLE WRESTLER in 11 UFC appearances and 27 MMA fights?

    Next US Destination Recommendations?

    6 days is never too long if you meet a really great woman. They have them in every corner of the globe and a lot of them are in Vegas, where they are usually a little more in the mood to be approached. It's a great city for a romance, and then a heartbreak, and then a lifelong memory.

    Next US Destination Recommendations?

    You should come to St. Louis. You will love our culture. It's a wonderful, safe and friendly paradise.

    Jacare has lost every single #1 Contender fight he's ever been in.

    Why do you have issues with me, mate? Where does all this animosity stem from?

    Jacare has lost every single #1 Contender fight he's ever been in.

    Weidman is a can? Jacare is a can? Brunson is a can? Gastelum us a can? Anderson is washed up? Every thread is like this, filled with these hateful comments. Who do you believe is good then? Who is this mystery fighter and what organization does he fight out of? Also, if you guys can't appreciate the fighters on the roster and the talent that it truly takes to compete at their level, why do you guys even watch this chit? What are you posting here for?
  20. The biggest thing that came out of this "cot blocker." This is now officially a thing. I swear to god, I thought this new poster was either trying to avoid the swear filter or it was simply a typo. Sober jumped all over it, but... ...this new poster defended it! He even went as far as to invent its etymology! This poster has a great future here on this forum and we are lucky to have him.

    Cobra Kai Season 2 will be released April 24th.

    Yeah, but it's fine. You listen to music, right? You watch random videos and whatnot? I'm on Youtube about as much as anyone else, but I don't ever have to sit through a commercial. It's 8.99 a month.

    Cobra Kai Season 2 will be released April 24th.

    There might be a chance that I'm the only person on the planet that's actually watching this chit, but I wish Johnny and Daniel could resolve their differences. They would be a lot better off as friends than as rivals.

    Dude, it's awesome!
  24. I'm only 40, so I haven't seen a ton of these things. I've been right twice, which isn't bad because there have only been 10 election cycles in my lifetime and I have mostly not paid attention to politics. I predicted George W. Bush (I wasn't all that aware of politics at the time,) and I predicted Donald Trump. So this cycle we have all sorts of characters vying for the nomination. That's what it has become, characters. -There's a very old man who has held some sort of political office for around 50 years who promises to change the world. There has been no explanation given as to why he hasn't managed to change the world in the last 5 decades. He has a huge following, comprised of gullible young people who have very little life experience. His name is Bernie Sanders. -There's another very old man who has also spent his entire life in politics. Joe Biden is not quite as much of a lunatic, but he is very creepy. He touches women inappropriately, that much has been extensively videotaped, documented and established. Like the aforementioned candidate, he promises change, which is very puzzling to anyone who is aware that they have been a part of the establishment for the last 40 years, so for him to embody change defies logic and reason. Those two are the front runners. Bernie Sanders is a political darling, Joe Biden is not anymore. -We have also have a half-black/half-Jamaican woman who has been in office for a couple years. Kamala Harris. I swear to Jehovah, if this country elects a black woman named "Kamala" as President, we are in trouble, because the "ice cream machine isn't working and our system is down." She has been in the public eye for her political grandstanding. During different hearings, primarily Brett Kavanaugh's nomination, she was very hostile. She seemed like the prototypical boetchey woman. I saw a lot of footage where she would crankily ask questions in one hearing or another, but she always got shut down hard. I have never seen her win an exchange. Very ineffective, as Kavanaugh is sitting in the Supreme Court chambers this very minute, leaning back in his chair with his feet on his desk, probably lifting weights and drinking beer. He loves beer. The media loves her because identity politics is their thing. -We have ourselves a real and true Asian guy in Andy Yang. But being Asian will get one no traction whatsoever from the media or any liberal group, despite being the most recently discriminated minority, which is probably why we don't see a lot of them in politics. He is campaigning on a platform of Universal Basic Income, which sounds awful on the surface. Truthfully though, all the black folks and A-rabs already have pretty much every life expense paid for by the Government, from cradle to grave. Food stamps, housing, school lunches, medicaid, and all sorts of things that you and I have never even heard of. It might be a slick tactic on his part to level the playing field again, redirect some of that money that being paid in taxes back to the people who actually paid them. It might be nice to get a few extra bucks from Uncle Sam. I don't know how it's actually going to get paid for, but how does anything get paid for, am I right? Anyway, out of all the candidates, he seems like the most decent guy. -Let us not forget our Native American Candidate. She is a solid 1/1024 Injun, had the college scholarship to prove it rightly so. Elizabeth Warren's chances of winning another election in any office also stand at 1/1024, which is probably why she is going ahead with this Hail Mary pass at the Presidency. We also have two gay guys, one of them who is comfortably nested in the closet, the other who is loud and proud about his sodomy. -Cory Booker is using some of the same tactics from the same playbook as Kamala (god, that name is awful!) He is disruptive and hostile during hearings. Ineffective as a legislature and ineffective as a male. Rosario Dawson is his current cover-up, but the ruse is incredibly obvious. Google "Cory Booker Girlfriend" and you'll see that every article will use the phrase "rumored girlfriend," and there isn't a candid photo in sight. It's awful. -The other one has a nearly ironic last name, which a more clever poster might put to work. Pete Buttigieg. I don't know what to say, man. He has oral and **** intercourse with other men. I cannot get past that. -Kristin Gildebrand. Don't bother worrying about the correct spelling of her name and don't worry about her platform, because she won't get past the first round. She ain't bad looking, though. I don't really see a standout, but I'm going to give it to Kamala Harris, because she's loud and obnoxious and that's the direction politics has gone.
