    Is Dan Ige ****ing retarded?!

    Given that USADA goons have shown up and demanded samples all while adamantly refusing to provide identification in the past, this story is plausible. However, one would think that this dude could tell the difference between a USADA goon and some yokel working for the county's probation office. Or, maybe not. On another note, I wonder if USADA would've changed their tactics had Tim Kennedy shot a couple of their goons. Imagine this - breaking news, Tim Kennedy blows the faces off two USADA employees doing a surprise test. The state brings charges before a grand jury but they decline to indict, citing self-defense and defense of dwelling. As much as it sucks, that might be what's required to get them to act differently.

    Theory about why UFC 238 is so awful.

    The theory does make sense. The only thing counteracting it is all the other crappy PPV cards the UFC has put on over the past year or so.

    I'd like to be pegged by Nunes. Ansaroff can watch.

    UFC 236: Holloway vs. Poirier 2

    I don't know if I would consider anything by Coolio as a "dope song", especially when some pretty white boy is coming out to it. Now, the Weird Al "Amish Paradise" parody on the ther hand...

    UFC 236: Holloway vs. Poirier 2

    Maybe Ovinth should move to heavyweight.

    UFC 236: Holloway vs. Poirier 2

    I didn't think of injury, although that's a possibility. I mean, he usually does groundwork but he mixes it up more.

    UFC 236: Holloway vs. Poirier 2

    Does Ovinth usually fight like this? I honestly can't remember seeing him this grapple-heavy.

    Buttstuff is the most effective of the traditional martial arts.

    Turner needs to finish Fazoli if he wants the W. Goddard just isn't a point taker it seems.

    UFC 236: Holloway vs. Poirier 2

    He wasn't kicked directly in the eye socket. The announcers are lying and they already doctored the video back in the truck.

    Faking dooshnozzle. He wasn't hurt that bad.

    Dillashaw USADA'd for EPO - Merged Threads

    I can respect EPO. Granted, it's not as cool as some old school 1980's WWF anabolic steroid, but it's way better than some lame diuretic or estrogen blocker. Of course if you really don't want to get caught, you can try autologous blood doping, which is much more difficult to detect. https://www.wada-ama.org/en/questions-answers/blood-doping

    Can Glassquez still making excuses

    https://www.mmafighting.com/2019/4/5/18291108/javier-mendez-gives-update-on-status-of-cain-velasquezs-mma-career From his manager Javier Mendez... “[Velasquez] wasn’t getting around too well (after the fight),” Mendez said. “But the screwed up [part] about that whole thing, originally when I saw the fight, I kept having to replay it, replay it, and I never saw what the hell happened. And I was thinking, well, what the hell? It’s just his knee gave out, right? And of course his knee gave out, right? “But then it wasn’t until I was home and he leaves me a text message and he goes, ‘I was fine until he hammerfisted me in the back of the head.’ And I’m like, what? What are you talking about, hammerfist? So I replayed the goddamn video and the very first strike that was hit was an illegal shot right behind the back of the head, when he shot in. And he said that dazed him a teeny bit and that’s what started this whole sequence, and nobody ever saw it. It was an illegal shot. If the ref would’ve caught it, it would’ve been a no contest. “But he didn’t catch it. Hell, I didn’t catch it and I watched it over and over again. I’d made up in my mind what I thought it was — and it wasn’t. I was completely wrong. … It was one of those weird freak accidents, man. Whether intentional or not, I don’t know. All I know is that he got a hell of a shot. When you slow it down and you watch it, it was a clear shot: Illegal, back of the head. And nobody talks about that because it’s over, it’s done.” So, what is it now? Ngannou never hit you at all and your knee just gave out, or he blasted you with an illegal shot? When can you accept the fact that you got hit with a short uppercut and finished?

    How Many Fights Do You Think Dave Branch Has Left?

    I think he'll get one more fight. If he loses that one, he's gone. However, I like the fact that this "high level Renzo Gracie blackbelt" is getting schooled on the ground. Wrestling top control + submissions & GnP >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> BJJ.

    Surprise, surprise, check out Conors tweets.

    I'm too lazy to read this entire thread, but as far as the tweets go, the only objectionable one is from (surprise!) Ali Abdelaziz. Here's the text: Talking ****, this guy is insulting someone’s wife and making fun of her religion and belief. He doesn’t realize he’s insulting 1.5 billon Muslims. Religion and family is a no no. You’re ****ed Connor, let’s see what the media is going to say now. He’s a rapist, and a ****. Now, here's the problem with that. Conor insulted Khabib and his wife, and indirectly insulted his culture and religion. He did not, however, insult every Muslim in the planet. Every part of the Islamic world has its own take on the religion, and the veil isn't a universal part of Islam (it's also used in other religions besides Islam). It could be their take on the religion, it could be part of the Dagestani culture, it could be whatever. However, for Ali to take it a step further, making a false claim that Conor insulted "1.5 billion Muslims", then later make a thinly veiled threat of "you're f****** Connor" has clear implications. Given the fact that Islam is the only major world religion that effectively stifles criticism through credible threats (and acts) of brutality and violence, this can reasonably be taken as a threat. We've seen what happens when someone gets a target on them because they "insulted Islam" or some such nonsense (think Theo Van Gogh, Molly Norris, Charlie Hebdo, etc). This is a twitter war between two meatheads named Conor Macgregor and Khabib Nurmagamedov. Don't make it about anything else, like Ali tried to do. The guy really is a rat.

    Can Glassquez still making excuses

    True. It's Javier's words, and while he does claim that Cain was the one who brought up the "illegal hammerfist" excuse, we have yet to hear it straight from the horse's mouth. Still, it's disappointing to see how many nozzles are buying this excuse. Fortunately, the alphas here on the UFC fight club free forum know better.
  20. David Branch is a "high level Renzo Gracie BJJ black belt"!!!
  21. I don't know... Michael Johnson still seemed with it to me... early stoppage?
