Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Anderson vs John Cena with WWE booking team.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Alistair Overeem is next in line to challenge the winner of Cain vs JDS. The fight is being targeted for March/April.

JDS vs. Overeem is a fight I'd liked to see.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Anderson/GSP is a waste of time. If Sonnen couldn't beat Silva with his wrestling then GSP isn't going to be able to. He's a smaller guy and his wrestling isn't as good as Sonnen's. He could keep he fight standing but Silva is lethal and a better striker. There is no way GSP wins that fight other than properly laying and praying. Lay n pray is a term that gets thrown around too much when it isn't quite deserved but for GSP to beat Silva he'd have to take him down, lay on him for 5 mins and throw very little in terms of punches. No gaps for Silva to pull a submission, and just tapping him enough to keep the ref from standing it up.

Silva/Jones is a fight i'd much rather see, and it would be a great fight to watch. Jones has a big reach and is unpredictable, Silva has great footwork and head movement, and is one of the best strikers in all of MMA.

Brilliant to see Maia going back to being a badass BJJ fighter. His boxing is better than what it was, but its not good enough to worry anyone. His ground game on the other hand is immense.

I like Fitch (or to put it more accurately, i respect Fitch + how he fights), so its nice to see him have an exciting fight for once. I don't hold it against him when he takes people down and grinds a decision b/c its as much on the fighter on the bottom to do something to escape as it is for the bloke on top to finish.

Davis looked great tonight, but it's hard to say how good of a test Prado was.

I liked fitch attempting submissions and working after his takedows, he looked good against a blue chipper like Silva

Glover looked like a fucking beast, he should get Gustuffson or Evans next imo.

Big Nog looked okay, he is definitely showing his age, but if he doesn't mind fighting scraps for another year, then I don't mind watching him fight.

Anderson Silva looked phenomenal once again, not much else to say. After watching tonight's fight, I can honestly say that I would take Silva over Jones. Whether Weidman,GSP, or Jones is next, I want to see any of those fights. Maybe Silva/Bisping just to see Bisping get humiliated.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Very few sports people put you in awe of them when they perform. Anderson is one of them.
