  1. I love Bruce Lee but he has basically nothing to do with MMA the creation of mma. They were holding MMA fights (no holds barred, vale tudo) and creating hybrid martial arts before he was born.
  2. And they just posted the final part http://www.cagesideseats.com/2012/12/22/3669814/the-forgotten-golden-age-of-mma-part-iv-ultimate-fighting-of-the
  3. If you don't want to talk to the family Cageside published an amazingly indepth series on how what we now call MMA got started 100 years ago. http://www.cagesideseats.com/2012/12/1/3713144/the-forgotten-golden-age-of-mma-a-four-part-series
  4. Pat's half black and half white? No wonder he's blue collar and also athletic and explosive.
  5. Before he fights tonight read this article looking at Nate's boxing and clinch game and how it resembles the tactics used by old time boxers http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/12/8/3742846/the-pugilist-2-nate-diaz-tom-johnson-manly-art-self-defence-ufc-mma It's a sequel. Part 1 looked at Nick.
  6. This time he talks about how he was almost involved with promoing UFC 1 http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/12/6/3736856/chuck-norris-video-interview-rorion-gracie-ufc-1
  7. A video of Chuck Norris telling when he 1st met the Gracies. Pretty amusing story. Seagal is no Chuck Norris.
  8. A must read http://www.cagesideseats.com/2012/11/16/3642584/the-pugilist-comparing-nick-diaz-daniel-mendoza-sweet-science-boxing-wrestling-prizefighting I think it's not only a great read, but also gives you something to think about what and why something works in MMA, and is an interesting history lesson to boot. Anyone got any comments?
  9. Let me see, Magic and Bird were replaced by Jordan, Barkely, and Malone, who were replaced by Shaq, Duncan, and Kobe, who is currently being replaced by Lebron and Durant. Seems to be part of the circle of life.
  10. Why would the Pride fighters replace them' date=' they were from the same generation? The people who have dominated HW over the last 4 years -Brock, Cain. and JDS - none of them were on the map when Pride was around. (Although I should note that Big Nog did come into the UFC win the interim and also beat Couture the UFC champ during his time in Pride) He was also KOed by a former Pride contender in Rampage, He also ended his career 1-5.
