Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Fuck me that Glover fight, Fabio is one tough fucker he should have a job for life. Maia made Story look a bit silly didn't he, just an amazing BJJ fighter.

Anderson silva just what i expected apart from i did think Bonnar would hang in there longer but when you take a ninja knee like that and to that part of the body you're fucked. Typical silva really, Bonnar has iron chin so anderson finishers him with a body shot.

I wanna see Silva vs GSP just based on the fact they're are probably in my top 5 fave fighters and have been for the past 6-7 years. if not then Silva clowning bisping please.



Not a Single fuck was given.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Fabio is tough, but that shouldn't give him a job for life. He can take a beating, but he is an average fighter. Hell, he was coming off a loss to Igor Pokrajac.

did you even watch his fight with igor? close fight. Fabio is exciting and will hopefully be kept around, granted he has to start winning again.

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.
GSP is just as good a wrestler as Sonnen, If he takes down Anderson, he will have way better submission defense. Jones/Silva would easily just be Jones taking down Silva and pounding him. The fight would almost end the same as Jones-Machida.

And how do you blame the fighters for not fighting back against Fitch, Just because they don't fight back, still doesn't mean he shouldn't finish the fight instead of grinding it out.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Never understood the Fitch hate. What's the ultimate objective of a fight? To do as much damage to your opponent without taking any yourself. Fitch is a master at that, it's not his fault he's an amazing wrestler and his opponents can't defend a double leg or learn how to sweep. I've also never understood the "pitter patter" argument normally thrown at wrestlers, punches from full guard from someone like Fitch or Chael probably aren't going to knock people out, they probably aren't going to cut them either and will cause minimal bruising, but you can sure as hell bet that they're hurting the opponent whether the guy can "take a punch" or not.

More power to the guy I say.

Yes it is his fault. Just because his opponents can't defend a double leg, or sweep doesn't justify the fact that he has boring fights. People pay $60 dollars for PPV, to be entertained. When they don't get that, that's a problem,

And yes that is pitter patter. They rarely TKO people with their GNP, That's not power punches.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

All this talk of Silva vs Jon Jones, but I'd rather see Silva vs GSP to be honest.

I must have missed the part with Fitch actually hurt people.

I can't stand him regardless so I'll be painfully biased either way.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Even if you don't like Silva, you have to respect the guy. Only thing that bothers me is his fear of fighting Jones, that will happen sooner or later whether he wants to or not.
