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

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:

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

Brerlappin wrote: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:


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:

Yeah that was strawberry floated up, looks absolutely rank :lol:

Assume you've seen this one too but just watched it through and thought it was brilliant, Gracie's control of balance and the way he nudges the NFL guy round is amazing to watch.

Apparently Ryan Bader is off to Bellator since the UFC aren't matching the contract they offered him.

Shame the Fedor-Mitrione fight got cancelled last-minute, was actually looking forward to seeing that. Will happen at a later date though apparently. Take it nobody watched 208 either (you didn't miss anything).

In other news, check out this twat. :lol: :fp:

Imagine being that guy right now... stupid cocky fighters want to be prime anderson and just end up humiliating themselves. Keep those hands up, don't be a cocky prick.

Apparently GSP who has now resigned with the UFC is considering 155lbs. I think this would be fun because I think if GSP doesn't succumb to ring rust because he'll definitely be in shape, he could ruin Conors world. We're talking about GSP who has some of the best takedowns and ground control of any welterweight. If he fights smart and not try to stand and trade, I believe GSP would wreck Conor on the ground, literally elbow his face in to the octagon canvas.

Incredible way to dodge Romero long enough for him to fail a test tbh

Completely skipped UFC 208 - am super hyped for 209. Ferguson vs "Halabeeb". :datass:

Don't particularly want to see old left hook Larry getting sent to the shadow realms by Romero and then retiring, at least this way Bisping goes out fighting a legend for a huge payday


This entirely. Return of GSP. :datass:

Totally agree.

Really looking forward to 209 as well, been busy doing random gooseberry fool so not seen a card since Rousey's.
