Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Jake will gas 4 mins into the fight, especially with Rory pushing the pace and making him work all the time. Rory will either finish him in the 2nd or 3rd or win a dominating decision. I don't think Hendricks will beat GSP, at all. I think GSP will grapplefuck him like he does everyone else.

Shogun is 5-5 but look at his losses. First to Griffin when his knees were shot, a wrong decision vs Machida, and then he's lost to Jon Jones who is a beast, Henderson who is on TRT, and Gustaffson who is also a beast. The only poor fight he had was against Griffin. You're nothing but a blind hater if you can't see that.

Big Nog, lost the title when he had staph, broke his arm in the other fight with Mir andlost to Cain and Werdum who are both legit top 3 guys. Werdum is another PRIDE guy as well.

How does Rampage leaving Pride and having 1 fight elsewhere suddenly not make him a PRIDE guy? you're talking out of your ass b/c you have nothing. Cro Cop is the only top PRIDE guy who absolutely failed in the UFC.

Sokodju had 5 pro fights and only 2 in Pride before coming to the UFC. How is that a top 10 guy? Like at all? Kang wasn't a top guy and neither was Herring

also Anderson had 5 fights in PRIDE, how the fuck does that not make you a Pride guy?

Sokodju was ranked as a top ten LHW by many sites before he came to the UFC. Apparently beating Lil Nog and Arona made him a beast.

If you want to dissect Shogun's losses how about his wins? Coleman who he was losing a decision to until he finished him late. Liddell who was at the end of his career. Machida was good I have no counter. Griffin's wife was having a baby and he was in Brazil and very distracted. Then there is Brandon Vera who was fired and only got the fight because Thiago Silva failed a drug test and Shogun refused to fight Glover. Shogun almost lost to Vera and it took everything he had to beat a middle of the pack guy. Shogun is mediocre at best.

Anderson hadn't fight in PRIDE since 2004 and had four of his fights in 2002. It would be like considering Clay Guida a Strikeforce guy.

Rampage I am wrong about if I said he wasn't a PRIDE guy.

Gomi tanked as well by the way. He was supposed to be one of the best LW's and he got submitted in three of his first four fights. His most impressive win is seriously Mac Danzig.

The list of PRIDE guys who haven't been that successful is a lot longer than the list of ones who have. I guess I will join Chael Sonnen in having my opinion that PRIDE is a joke.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Sokoudjou was rubbish. He had hype, that doesn't mean anything. Just means that some people are quick to bandwagon a bloke.

Shogun is mediocre? He's easily a top 10 fighter at LHW.

I'd say Tyson Griffin is his most impressive win and look at his losses, Florian who was #2 in the UFC at the time, Guida and Diaz. No shame in any of those losses. Then there was the robbery vs Sanchez. His first fight in the UFC was also 3 years on from the end of PRIDE. Not many blokes who are fighting now were that young in PRIDE. thats where their prime was.

Guida only had 2 fights in Strikeforce, all up a time period of 4 months. Silva had 5 fights across a 2 year period. Sure he has had more fights and more success in the UFC but that doesn't discount the fact he was in Pride awhile.

Lets face it, if you find yourself agreeing with Sonnen on many things then

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Shogun is still top 10, but he's definitly in the lower parts of that. 8 or 9.

Jones, Machida, Evans, Teixeira, Henderson, Davis are all without question better than Rua.

Gustaffson, Nogueira, Bader, and Mousasi would be around Rua at this point I feel.

The guy that just beat him in dominating fashion and is #1 contender is just around him?

REPORT: NEW SUSPECT ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH 2004 DISAPPEARANCE OF VITOR BELFORT’S SISTER

Another individual suspected of participating in the kidnapping and murder of Vitor Belfort’s sister has been taken into custody, according to a report from Brazilian newspaper Diario do Grande ABC.

Leonardo Luiz Batista was reportedly arrested Monday in Rio de Janeiro in connection with Priscila Belfort’s 2004 disappearance. Batista was captured after being placed on a most-wanted list in February, according to the report.

Four individuals had previously been arrested for their involvement in the crime, including Elaine Paiva, who confessed to police in 2007. Belfort’s body has never been recovered.

The January 2004 kidnapping occurred just weeks before Belfort challenged Randy Couture for UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 46. In spite of the tragedy, “The Phenom” won his first world title in 49 seconds after he was awarded a technical knockout due to a cut.

So Brazilian police has caught another suspect who participated in the kidnapping of Vitor's sisters kidnapping and murder.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Apparently UFC 162 did around 600,000-700,000 buys, according to MMASupermecy on Twitter. I'd say a very solid buyrate considering no one knew who Weidman even was.

The rematch is going to do HUGE business. Second highest UFC buyrate in history for sure.
