    **UFC Rewards Program going away 10/15/2016** [renamed thread]

    If you subscribe to Fight Pass, and didn't receive the email with the code for points, you can email them. I received mine in a just a few days. I personally really like some of the collectibles that are available for what seems to me just doing what I do anyway!

    Bobby Green calls out Dos Nachos on PED's

    All good points, no doubt. I admit I don't know much about PEDs, so I'll go do some research. I'll still give him the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise, but it does sound suspicious. Is there a larger discussion about PEDs in the UFC elsewhere that anyone cares to link? I think a nice remedial thread on the subject for dummies like me might be in order.

    How many of you really think Conor will win ?

    I hope it's a five round slugfest. Will Aldo's experience be enough to stop the pressure of McGregor?

    Bobby Green calls out Dos Nachos on PED's

    I'm (obviously) a Pettis fan, and it looked to me like a superior game plan. Constant pressure, close distance. As others have mentioned, the same style Guida used to beat Pettis. I'll reserve judgement until something conclusive comes through. I'm more intererested to see how Pettis comes back from the loss.

    Question about Weidman vs Belfort

    I respect Vitor's pedigree, but I'm surprised he got a title shot.

    I'll say again, I admire your passion. Completely disagree nonetheless. You must have a website or museum for these guys, right?
  7. In my view of the link, it didn't give credit to the author, HiTeMnSuBmiTem, from the free UFC forums. Check it out, great work!
  8. Nicely done! I love statistics, but usually fast forward to the end of the TUF episodes just to see the fights. "The Real World: UFC" isn't my thing, but I love the fights and the coaches. Thanks for taking the time, you should get this stickied in a TUF forum!

    While I will draw a distinction between sports entertainment and combat sports, I respect the guys that "wrassle". I was a big fan as a kid, and it was at least adjacent to my martial arts obsession. I still enjoy the video games, which I think is the perfect venue for it. I always liked the "technical" wrestlers, and Bret Hart was probably my all time favorite. I can't blame the guys for taking the money, but it's interesting to think how it might have been different.

    Dana White: Georges St-Pierre Probably Not Returning To UFC

    I've no doubt most people are, until there's better testing. If it's cheating, make it against the rules and enforce it. It's not my style, of course, but I can see the lure. If it's not cheating, make it legal and let everyone do it. That way, it's removed from the equation. People are always going to try to cheat, particularly when there's a bunch of money involved. I tend to view competition from sort of a "purist" viewpoint; that is, I compete for the sheer love of competing. If you beat me, I've got work to do. If you cheated to do it, I'll find a way to come back better, without stooping to that level. Naive, of course, but that's my worldview. The question becomes, "If someone else cheats, will you?"

    Kurt was a physical marvel, no doubt. I wonder if the lure of the (WWE) money back then was just too much to ignore?

    Dana White: Georges St-Pierre Probably Not Returning To UFC

    No question. I personally much prefer the guys with poise and class, like GSP. Some of those fights were dull, but title fights can get that way. I still liked Serra getting the surprise TKO, and how GSP came back more determined. No chance he won that fight with Hendricks, and I actually think it was a gesture of class to bow out and raise Johnny's hand. It's clearly Dana trying to put pressure on him to return. Dave Chappelle once turned down a $50M payday to do something else, and he was better for it. I'd love to see GSP/Lawler, though. Robbie won that belt, and is a testament to having heart and staying on the grind.

    Conor Trying Way Too Hard

    I'll reluctantly agree that there is merit in staying true to yourself, even if I don't prefer the delivery method. Do you guys think he's gotten more critcism the larger his celebrity has become, particularly recently? By all means, be confident and believe in your abilities, but if you're going to talk trash, you've got to win. I don't have this fight as one sided as folks on these forums, but I'm sure looking forward to it, whomever wins.

    Jones vs Weidman Twitter Beef

    I hope it doesn't turn out MMA needs PEDs. All decisions would suck. That said, I've always thought it should be your training, heart, and physical gifts that should win fights, but then I saw some of the split decisions in the UFC.

    I did watch the video, thank you very much. These guys would never have competed, as it's an actual regulated sport. If you don't have anyone to compete against, there isn't much point in it, right? Your argument: "Damn, these guys are huge! They'd destroy everyone, past and present." My argument: "Damn, they are huge! They're still not professional fighters." Did college wrestling kill your father?
