  1. I know he's only had 4 fights, but I thought every one of Rory MacDonalds' fights have been great.
  2. Dana always gives his two cents on who he thinks won close/controversial fights at every press conference and post fight interviews. I'm wondering how Dana can honestly judge a fight one way or the other as every time I see the guy sitting cageside during a fight he is either on twitter or talking to someone beside him. The guy probably only "watches" half of any fight at best. Thoughts?
  3. When do tickets go on sale? Calgary's only 90 minutes away!
  4. Love this kind of stuff, thanks for posting!
  5. Sorry for your loss, know how it feels, just lost my boy Odin last summer after 14.5 years.
  6. GSP is better than anyone at combining the disciplines which is why he can take his opponent out of their gameplan and into his. GSP is my favorite fighter, but I do want to see him fight like he used to. If you watch his fights from TKO or his early fights in the UFC he was a beast...and he still is...but I think he is so focused on the gameplan developed for him that he never strays from it; even when he has his opponent hurt. Look at the Shields fight...beautiful head kick and GSP resets instead of trying for a finish. Or against Kos he could have been throwing left hooks or the left leg to the body and head all night...one of them would have connected eventually as Kos couldn't see it coming. I believe GSP thinks too much inside the cage, he should just trust his ability and go after it. i think Jackson is actually holding GSP back a bit with the gameplans. If you watch GSP train or have seen him on Sport Science, the guy is a freak. He is as strong and hits as hard as a LHW and many HW's, but he isn't using it. I can understand where the frustration from so many fans comes from...you know the guy could absolutely destroy most of his opponents, especially after he wears them out in the first few rounds, but he stays so disciplined and doesn't go in for the kill. I was really looking forward to the GSP/Diaz fight (thanks Carlos:mad:)...I was hoping with the bad blood, GSP might come out a lot more aggressive like he used to. That being said, all he does is wins, but if he wants to have the legacy he is aspiring to, he needs to start putting guys to sleep.
  7. My father-in-law was a cop for 25 years. I get to hear a lot of stories; really messed up stuff. When he retired he was very happy, like a huge burden had been lifted from his shoulders. Almost nothing he has ever spoken about the job has had any kind of positive message to it. He said the stuff you see on the news is hard enough to handle...it's the details of some of the crimes that they won't allow to be reported about, that are the hardest to deal with.
  8. In my youth I was good at football, rugby and I was a decent wrestler, although I never actually competed in wrestling except for when I was like 9, I think. I can also say i may be the only Canadian who doesn't like hockey and can't skate to save his life:D
  9. Hendo didn't have too many problems with Palhares and landed a lot of good shots in their fight. I think Anderson would use his reach and uncanny accuracy to pick Palhares apart and eventually get the KO.
  10. A friend and I were in a video store in '94 and I saw the cover of UFC 2...we grabbed it as we were forever debating who the best fighters would really be if they had to face off...been a fan ever since...and yes, I am that old:mad:
  11. I'm Canadian, and GSP is my favorite fighter...that being said, Anderson Silva is the P4P#1. Sorry, he's champ, hasn't lost and has 2 wins in a weight class higher than his own (although I do agree that Irvin probably doesn't count for much). Oh, I'm not a big fan of Silva either, personality wise, but he is fun to watch.
  12. Hate to admit it, but I'm old enough...she was beautiful and also very successful, years before "The Bodyguard" came out.

    Prelims tomorrow

    Anyone know how/where I can watch the prelims in Canada tomorrow?
  14. Great post! I am a huge GSP fan, but I also am dissapointed at certain times in his fights when he doesn't go in for the kill...but it is understandable why he doesn't...he's always in control and is never reckless. I find GSP extremely fun to watch, even if only from an athletic perspective. I've coached and played football in the past and I have a bit of a wrestling background. When I watch GSP and see the focus he has and his ability to keep the fight wherever he wants it is fascinating. When you have coached athletes, even in other sports outside of MMA you tend to focus on small details, foot placement, how they move their hips, positioning etc. Watching GSP's athletecism is amazing... I know most people love to see a great brawl, me included, but I hope that people can also see when a truly great and absolutely dominant champion performs the way he does, they appreciate it. btw, this lay n pray crap that people accuse GSP of is ridiculous...has anyone noticed how easily GSP passes guard and is constantly changing and improving his position? He may not have finished his last few fights, but he put on a clinic in each one. BJ Penn - exciting fighter, Alves - exciting fighter, Dan Hardy - exciting fighter...many people on here comment on how boring those fights were...is that because GSP is boring, or were people just frustrated that GSP dominated them so badly that they had almost no answer for anything he did...I believe the latter, it takes 2 guys to make an exciting fight and if you aren't good enough to hang with the champ, don't blame the champ.
