Was watching a fight this morning, and one of the guys was Andre 'Touchy' Fili. Great nickname. :lol:

Anderson Silva vs Vitor Belfort set for March next year by the sounds of it. I don't like Vitor, but I hope he smashes Anderson.

Yes but at my dad's as he's paid for it.

Got a real feeling that fury will win it in points.

Just a reminder for those of us who struggle to keep up with/care about UFC anymore, it's 194 this weekend. Lots of people saying this is the best card the UFC has ever put on.

Main Card (PPV)
José Aldo (c) vs. Conor McGregor (ic)
Chris Weidman (c) vs. Luke Rockhold
Ronaldo Souza vs. Yoel Romero
Demian Maia vs. Gunnar Nelson
Max Holloway vs. Jeremy Stephens
Preliminary Card (Fox Sports 1)
Urijah Faber vs. Frankie Saenz
Tecia Torres vs. Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger
Warlley Alves vs. Colby Covington
Leonardo Santos vs. Kevin Lee
Preliminary Card (UFC Fight Pass)
Joe Proctor vs. Magomed Mustafaev
John Makdessi vs. Yancy Medeiros
Court McGee vs. Márcio Alexandre Jr.

I'm only interested in the two title fights. Hoping Aldo destroys McGregor, and not that fussed about the outcome of the Middleweight fight, but I like Weidman, so I'll go for him.

Oh, and as if to emphasise the over-saturation thing, 3 events in 3 days, Thu-Sat. :fp:

Aldo is clearly the more complete fighter, McGregor's power is undeniable though - if he wins it will be by knock out. We've seen Aldo knocked down from Mendes, he recovered well, but if he takes a shot that clean from McGregor I don't see him getting back up.

For me it's a mental battle more than anything for Aldo, if he can keep his composure and the antics haven't gotten to him at all then he wins a decision. But if McGregor has succeeded in putting the doubt in his mind and Aldo is emotional I believe he gets ko'd.

McGregor has the Luck of the Irish, so he'll win.

I'm still 100% certain he'd be nowhere near as big as he is if he was any other nationality.

I think HW boxing is irrelevant at this point after last weeks fight.

I hate it when one the boxing organisations throw their toys out of the pram like this.

Came here to post that, really enjoyable read I thought.

Hope Aldo destroys the loudmouth. Aldo by decision I'm thinking.

The Guardian stooping to new levels of awful opinion pieces with this article on why boxing should be banned:

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfre ... t-64864385

To counteract its stupidity I've just finished reading this old piece from Joyce Carol Oates, beautifully written stuff:

This looks so mismatched:

Image

Sage Northcutt looks like he took Captain America's Super Soldier formula. Seriously, what is this Mormon Magic? They weigh almost the exact same:

Image

3 days in a row of UFC. Northcutt fight I can't imagine going past the first round. Also quite looking forward to the main event tonight with Namajunas vs VanZant. Namajunas seemed solid on the previous season of The Ultimate Fighter, I didn't realise she'd shaved her head though, weird.

The Ultimate Fighter finale episode:

I figured Saul Rogers would win and fully expected it would be him vs Artem. What a shame he lied on his USA VISA. Artem has some excellent knockout power, he finishes his fight inside a minute! Ryan Hall is a good alternative to Saul, he seems incredibly talented at jujitsu!

Image

:slol:

I'm on board the Mcgregor hype train. :datass:

Anyone watching the boxing on Saturday night. It's a bloody good card but I'm still not buying the ppv. May look for a stream.
