So much of that lose has to be on Rousey's coach, she had a year to almost solely improve her striking defence and takedowns and she came back looking worse

MMA Hour & MMA Beat. There's a few decent podcasts on Sherdog.com too.

As Maf said, the MMA hour is probably the best podcast out there, BUT...its literally about 4 hours long. If you haven't got that amount of time, check out Anik & Florian's podcast, its only about an hour long and its pretty good.
Also if you want good insight into the fights, check out the Gracie Breakdown on youtube. Rener Gracie breaks down the biggest fights and shows you gooseberry fool you never would have even noticed. Its really cool, in fact it was watching his breakdown of Diaz/McGregor 1 that made me take up BJJ :D

Yair Rodríguez dominated BJ Penn. Didn't expect anything else. Thought the age gap would be too much of an issue.

I want him to get a go against the winner of Aldo vs Holloway. And if that's Holloway, then to also have a go against Aldo.

Discovered Kron Gracie the other day through Vice and the guy's awesome, he's an absolute don.

His striking's beyond dire but watched a couple of Gracie breakdowns of his Rizin fights and they were really interesting. Wish he'd work properly on his stand up game so he'd reach a level high enough to try out the UFC.

This was the video that got me into him, ignore the stupid clickbait headline.



Looks freakishly similar to a new boyfriend an ex of mine has got as well, mad jealous of her. :shifty:

haha yeah Kron is awesome, but a bit of a shady character. He ran that Metamoris BJJ competition, got in shitloads of debt, couldnt pay any of it, and thats why he went to fight in Rizin, to pay off his debts :lol: Did you see his last fight in Rizin? It was pretty cool.

If you havent, you should check out Rener Gracies videos. Hes strawberry floating cool as hell. Here he is teaching a kid who gets bullied some BJJ :wub:

Unless they get someone like Bas Rutten, I think I'll be disappointed with whoever replaces Goldie.

Hah really, I didn't realise any of that :lol: dunno if that makes him cooler, like some sort of terrible B movie plot.

But yeah I watched it the other day, can't honestly say I knew what was happening on the ground half the time but he pulled off some baller moves.

That's cool, pretty cheesy but good on them, was totally hoping the video would end with a rematch against the bully :lol: will check out some more of his stuff later

I know there was a lot of negative press around things like the Gracie University too but they do generally seem like a cool as family.

The breakdown videos are great. Like the one of Diaz McGregor 1, i remember seeing that fight and thinking Conor was absolutely useless on the ground. I didnt see him do anything but get choked out. But the Gracie breakdown of it was like, holy gooseberry fool, he actually used a ton of BJJ in that fight that i never even noticed. Its one cool thing about doing even a little BJJ, watching MMA afterwards is like going from SD to HD, you start seeing so much stuff you never would have noticed before.

Also what the strawberry float was going on with Kron's stomach when he was practicing the breathing in that video?! :dread:

He didn't use a ton, he used a couple of easy-to-learn escapes. What's weird in that video is they act like Conor is a world class BJJ guy. Is he strawberry float. :lol:


Hes a purple belt last i heard, which is fairly high level to be fair. Yeah some of the world class black belts who compete at ADCC or IBJJF Worlds would maul him but people make out like he doesnt know gooseberry fool about the ground game, which is flat wrong

I do see Khabib losing this next fight, but if he wins that'll be something -- Tony is bigger, longer reach, has better BJJ than Conor.

That said, I could see Conor beating Khabib with a couple of punches.


Khabib obviously has the wrestling advantage. If it goes to the ground its game over, hes just too strong. But weve never seen his chin be tested, and despite his impressive record, alot of it is padding with fights against total bums. Ferguson has better striking and we know hes durable as hell. I think that would definitely be the better match. But the worst matchup for Conor would probably be Khabib. Hes powerful, amazing takedowns, and insane wrestling. But having said that, Conor seems to make wrestlers want to try to stand and bang for some reason, look at Mendes & Alvarez, both could easily dominate him on the ground but both stupidly decided to try and fight on the feet. Maybe Conor smells really bad or something.
