  2. He will still be a 9% owner even after he retires... 9% of a 100 million $ business is 9 mil a year... Dana will be alright.

    The "MMA Three"

    you are so showing your MMA "age" this sport goes back a little further than GSP and Anderson Silva. BJ Penn was the P4P king while GSP was still working tent shows in Saskatchewan ( is that how you spell it?) And to be perfectly frank, as much as I respect Fedor's accomplishments and say he was undoubtedly the best HW on the planet for a stretch, and will go down as one of the all time greats, to anyone watching, that knew what they were watching, he was never at the top of the P4P list based on skillset and technique alone. Everything he did was sloppy and technically way off base, but he did it with such a determination and will that he was near impossible to beat, in his time. All time great, absolutely yes. P4P great? emphatically no.
  4. Exactly what I was thinking. There are fighters who through hard work and endless hours of training and repeptition create muscle memory and develop into extremely technically efficient strikers. GSP, Jones, Condit, Siver, are guys like this. But there are the rare few that are just natural born fighters, you see it in the way they move, their timing and coordination. Anderson Silva is one of the best natural born fighters ever seen in any discipline. JDS, Jose Aldo, Cerrone, BJ, and even Liddell have this same quality, but none are on the same level, or ever could be, as Silva. There is Sugar Ray Robinson, Bruce Lee, Muhammed Ali, and Now Anderson Silva as the pantheon of hand to hand combat.
  5. "MMA" existed way way before anyone ever realizes. The Greeks and Macedonians called it Pankratia, and it still is practiced, with competitions between villages, in rural areas of Turkey and Northern Greece. And BTW, Shamrock and Suzuki created King of Pancrasse in Japan at least a year before UFC 1, and Vale Tudo tourneys have been going on in Brazil since the 1920's, which is what inspired Helio Gracie to create BJJ in the first place.
  6. Jack Johnson in 1909, in an interview about his upcoming fight with Gentleman James Sullivan, but it is such a basic truth in any kind of combat it probably was first said by some Greek or Macedonian a few thousand years ago.
  7. I am a supporter of Anarchy in the UK... God Save the Queen is a good tune as well
