No one wants this fight, no one asked for it, but some scumbags are going to sanction a fight where the combined age of the fighters is over 100, just to make some money off guys who are probably already a bit punch drunk but strawberry float it, let these old dudes go out and give each other brain damage or potentially die right? Tim Means was killed in a boxing match only a few weeks ago, and he was probably 15 years younger than these old strawberry floaters. I mean if they're dumb enough to sign up for it then it's their own fault, but if you're a fan of combat sports you absolutely should have a problem with old men giving each other more brain damage for a payday.


They want it. I mean people can just not watch it. I've no problem with them fighting if they want to.

This follows on from what I posted on the last page, there's no way I'm watching any of this fight. I hate the idea of it as a spectacle. Boxers often struggle to recreate that thrill outside of the ring, that doesn't mean they should be encouraged by promoters to destroy their health when they are way beyond what you'd expect from a reasonable fighter. It's a freakshow. They can fight if they want but strawberry float supporting it in any way, I'm not even touching it on torrents.

Embedded is up:



and Dan Hardys always interesting inside the octagons are up too:






also not really MMA related, but any of you guys ever watch Fight Quest? Its an old show now, it aired in 2007, but its awesome. 2 guys just go train in various Martial Arts, then have a real fight after a weeks training. One of the guys, Jimmy Smith, is now a bellator commentator. The show is just crazy, low budget, no script, but just damn good especially if youre a martial arts fan. Ive binge watched all episodes over the last couple of weeks, highly recommend it!

The BJJ episode is awesome



and the Krav Maga one is unintentionally hilarious just because of how strawberry floating BATSHIT INSANE this crazy bitch instructor is

Some great fights this weekend. Michael Johnson vs Justin Gaethje was superb. Last minute or so: https://streamable.com/tjlbf
Whittaker is immense, don't like Romero but can't deny he's dangerous. Back-to-back wins over Romero and Jacare for Whittaker now. Pettis looked good, and the Browne fight was entertaining.Decent weekend overall.

Really don't like the commentary on the UFC now. Rogan aside it's so boring, and having three people doesn't seems to detract more than anything. Was great to hear Goldberg on Bellator last week. :wub:

Agreed. Having Goldie, and Mauro Ranallo on Bellator really made the commentary enjoyable. I don't like this 3 man commentary gig the UFC are doing.

213 was weird, none of the fights were outstanding i thought. They weren't bad, just not amazing. Werdum Overeem was legitimately awful tho. I don't know how Overeem picked up that decision. Browne has to be on his way to Bellator by now too.

Browns a banana split. Delighted to see him lose.

Dana White has gone on one of his rants and says Nunes will never be getting a main event ever again because she can't be trusted. He also o said the same thing about Jon Jones.

Fight night Weidman v Gastelum is on tonight. The main event is pretty much the only fight on the card worth watching.

Time to get tentatively hyped boys. But dont get too hyped, theres still plenty of time for Jones to crash an airplane full of coke and dick pills into a Vatican mass for pregnant women between now and Saturday.

I find it hard to get hyped for Cormier/Jones when the latter is 5 inches taller and has a 12 inch reach advantage. Jones should really strawberry float off to the heavyweight division.

Not arsed about this at all. Jones is going to be the favourite vs pretty much anyone he faces due to his physical gifts giving him a huge advantage. No coincidence his biggest beating was against Gustafsson.

Shame Jones v Rumble never happened.

Maia fight doesn't interest you either?

214 is the most stacked card in ages, I can't wait for it.
