  1. Wow... I read the headline and thought I had magically been propelled back to 2004!
  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

    Fedor Returning

    Yep your right, topic ducked, no quotes, blah blah blah... your name is still too long and it messes up the page layout, I am doing a public service until your inevitable RE-ban.

    Fedor Returning

    This isn't about Fedor. This is about a 13 yr old pre-pubescent sitting in his Mom's basement trying to get his jollies and prove his "coolness" by badmouthing one of the greatest names ever in the sport of MMA and his "individuality" by taking the very same unpopular opinion as every other ridiculous child doing the same thing as him.

    Fedor Returning

    Cute, but the name is still too long and your screwing up my page layout. Here's an idea, change your name from a half page rant about Fedor to , oh I don't know, how about "Monkey Brain Buffoon", it says exactly the same thing about you and doesn't disturb the rest of the world nearly as much.

    Fedor Returning

    bump the idiot with too long of a SN off.... I wonder what pathetic previous banned moron that is anyway?
  14. As a fight, no I don't think Chael has done anything to deserve a title shot, but any chance to see him humbled in the octagon and receive the beatings he so richly deserves I am down for. I would still rather the shot went to a deserving contender who fought his way to a shot, instaed of a blowhard who has never won anything of any import who talked his way in. As far as TUF, it might be entertaining, and a little interesting to see JBJ's reaction to 10 weeks of the mouth, but other than that I couldn't care less.
  15. I am so sick and tired of random arm-chair fighter wannabes sitting at their computer feeling like they are enough of an authority to declare ANYONE is or isn't a "real" MMA fan. Who the hell do you think you are? Your views, opinions, thoughts mean NOTHING more than anyone off of the street, period. How dare you assume that you are entitled to judge the level of any other perrson's knowledge, or the level of their "fandom" or commitment to anything. I honestly could not care one single iota who does or doesn't watch TUF, WWE, The View, American Idol, or any thing else that they want to watch simply as entertainment. If someone is entertained by watchiing a bunch of goofball fighters arguing amongst each other in the lap of luxury provided to them, then so be it. If you don't want to watch it, then so be it. But to sit there like you are the be all end all when it comes to being a fan of a sport does nothing but make you look like a complete and total d-bag to anyone with half a brain looking in. end rant, carry on.

    What if!

    the world would explode
  17. Watching it live all the instruments indicated he was in the 744 range, and the announcer and the ground crew said he fell short of mach 1. There is no "official" number yet, so I guess we will have to wait for that to know for sure.
