The general assumption is that Punk is more effective on the ground while Jackson is the more experienced striker, but again that's armchair theorizing with so little data to go by.


In any event, my money's on Punk.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread! (LET'S GET IT ON!)

So after watching the live weigh ins, Joe and Yoel cleared something up for us. They didn't give Yoel his 2 hours. They only gave him one. What kind of bullshit ssndbagging is that!?

Jackson, he is the more seasoned of the two even though he is quite bad himself. I reckon he'll do the job.

Yeah it was also mentioned in one of the Embedded clips. If true then there should be an overruling this of mess. Can you imagine him winning tonight's fight and not going home with the belt because of an NYSAC technicality penalty that was enforced after an NYSAC neglet of their own modus operandi?


I'd be beyond pissed if I were Yoel.

It would truly suck if Yoel kills him and get's punished by leaving with no gold and a light purse because the sports commission has it's head up it's ass. And this is the same commission that let Holly get ko'ed between rounds with no consequences.

And now Dana's on damage control and he's said that if Yoel wins he get's a number 1 contender fight at 205.

Especially when we are ultimately talking about .2 POUNDS! I'm sorry, but there shouldn't be a consolation prize here, assuming the word is true. Though Romero is an absolute athletic freak, facts remain that he is 41. This is perhaps a real unfortunate situation.

Anyway, real fun card tonight imo. Good intrigue and some "styles make fights clashes



explanations: though Blades is strong as hell with pressuring gnp and Overeem's chin can be dazed with bad breath, Overeem is maybe other than Francis the physically strongest in this division, some of the best knees in the biz and a nasty guillotine with underrated TDD. Could be dead wrong, but I think Overeem takes this off being a bad matchup for Blades, even coming off becoming a Pez dispenser.

Even this Mike Jackson has to be more polished than Punk. Gotta go against our crowd.
Arlovski has fought smarter recently, changing his style abit and is more polished here. Regardless, he looked mediocre vs even Struve you can't change your chin and though sloppy, I notice that Bam Bam has alot of power and some surprising athleticism. Not a good mix for AA

RDA has more weapons, but I think Covington wrestles him to oblivion here (RDA's track record vs high-caliber wrestlers not good)

Whittaker/Romero when Whittaker is coming off health battles and cage rust, while Romero's body was in agony yesterday and had to be helped off by two guys is a toss-up. Still, if Bobby Knuckles was healthy I'd take him and he did beat Romero largely on one leg last time, but I got Romero here until we see Whittaker mentally and physically 100 percent.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread! (LET'S GET IT ON!)

For Punks sake I hope that he does win this fight tonight. It's hard picking him because of not having any idea how much he has improved. Hopefully it lasts longer than last time at the very least.

A very stacked and interesting card. Pulling for Holm for the win.

Romero not being eligible to win the Championship (I just heard them mention it on the prefight) just for .2 is so stupid. Especially when both are probably not even close to 185 now after rehydrating and such.

Great career for Rashad and he will forever be etched in the UFC's highlight reel, but too long at the dance and this cements it. Retirement past due.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread! (LET'S GET IT ON!)

Fight of the year. Absolute classic. Might as well shut the show down now, nothing will top that heavyweight extravaganza.
