Re: MMA Discussion Thread

I've tried 3 different gyms here in Liverpool and although they're decent compared to general English standards, it's still kind of meh.

I would love to compete, not even considering it until I shed the fat I've gained since I was constantly in the gym daily training.

Blackzillian is a name change if I've ever seen one!

Any known fighters/coaches at your gym, Punter? I've trained with Paul Sass and Paul Kelly here, met Rampage at some local fights. Jason Tan was the main instructer at my first gym.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Fuck no. I'm in Edmonton Alberta, better known as Deadmonton Alberta

No one of note ever trains here. Never saw anyone, and I doubt I ever will. I plan on moving the fuck outta here ASAP, so we'll see what happens then. Maybe down the road I'll compete, but I HIGHLY doubt it. My knees are really fucked right now, and I don't want to risk competing and getting my kneecap dislocated for the 4th time or maybe something worse like a torn tendon of some sort. Right now, it's all in fun. Doing Jiu Jitsu because I love it, but doing everything else to shed fat, and because it's better then a treadmill.

Liverpool? I thought for some reason you were in Florida

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Haha, yeah from Liverpool but I'm moving to Florida in September, that's why I mentioned looking for a new gym in Orlando before mate So if there was anybody in this thread from the area and could help me out with a suggestion then I'd be all ears for that like.

Even if you just have an amatuer fight against some 47 year old who is having a scrap for bus fare and a butty, to say you have an MMA fight will be a pretty cool thing to be able to say lad!

As you said, sure as hell beats the treadmill! Also the sense of accomplishment you get when you're constantly getting tapped at first and you then get your first tap, an then your second, and you start putting up a good fight against everybody an holding your own against the regulars is absolutely awesome. Dope feeling.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

It's official, Gegard Mousasi is finally in the UFC. His first fight will be against Gustafsson in April .

needless to say, LHW is absolutely stacked now.

Who cares?

I remember the golden years.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

The gym where I did Muay Thai offers all manner of mma/ bjj classes, no-one of note trains there but one day a few years ago Randy fucking Couture walks in unannounced!! it was when he was doin that book/speech tour and was in contact with the trainers who told no one, I wasn't there but all the boys got awesome stare-down pics done with him.

I'd be happy to start doing bjj there as I know its a great gym but the Gracie affiliation of the other place holds a bit of sway haha, either way im determined this is the year Im getting back on the ground, plan is to get back into MT too and get training 3 nights a week time permiting.

No plans of any competing or such, but god help any man fucking with me outside the chipper at 3am.

(eh, not that anyone seriously training martial arts should be hanging around chippers at 3am).

Also, it's crazy how many small things you have to be careful for in BJJ, width between legs, right posture, elbows up, chin tucked. It makes me respect the BJJ aspect of MMA ALOT more.
Awesome that you started training. It's a lot to take in at first but I'm completely addicted and it changed my life completely. Make sure to keep your immune system up and keep clean and take care of any cuts you have while rolling, staph is a huuuuuge problem and it's uber easy to get. A little care will go a long way, you don't want staph. Trust me.

Thanks man. I can officially pull guard now. Watch yo' back Walls

Yeah, I literally felt sick right after rolling. I felt completely contaminated until I got out of the shower. Definitely want to stay away from both ring worm and staph, especially since I'm in the middle of a semester in uni. I heard fish oil helps?

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

^missed that but sounds ridiculous.

These prelims have been poor, best thing on it so far was the TUF ad.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Those prelims were awful. Also, Viera won that against Pepey there. Bad decision.
