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

Congrats to Bisping on a great career. Better than 99% of people who ever fight MMA. I liked him from day one. Was so happy that he finally won a UFC title at the end of his career.

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

Apparently yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the 1st Dream event. A time when the possibility of a Pride 2.0 emerging still seemed plausible. This is the first thing that comes to mind for me when I look back on the promotion, probably because of that catchy music and the white cage they fought in.





Reem was in peak horsemeat consumption mode back then.

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

UFC Liverpool was incredible, a lot of people thought the main event was boring but being there in person it was such an enthralling fight to watch everybody was on their feet for the full 5 rounds. I thought Till just edged it but most of the people in the arena were split on who won the fight which shows how close it actually was.

The roar that came from the crowd when Till got the decision was deafening and is something I will never forget everybody threw their drinks in the air When i got home I watched the fight back and thought Wonderboy edged it but it was hardly a robbery like some have been making it out to be, Wonderboy clearly landed more but none of his strikes were significant enough to win rounds IMO especially as Darren was the aggressor and forcing him to move backwards the whole fight.

I remember him coming out to London Calling by the Clash at UFC 85 in the O2 arena.

I was there live, the place went nuts! Haha.

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

Alright guys, lets talk about missing weight. A lot of fighters and journalists are starting to speak out and get frustrated with the lack of professionalism of fighters who show up over weight. A lot are even calling it cheating because you have an unfair advantage. All the fighters who came in over weight this year have won their fight save for 1. But thats still 6 fighters who won without making weight.

Pros are saying more needs to be done to punish fighters who don't make weight because a purse cut doesn't seem to be working anymore. And even with the asterisk of being overweight they still get the W unlike if they failed a drug test.

So what do you guys think?

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

Not a fan of having such stringent weight classes. Having so many divisions just encourages people to push themselves to go as far below their natural weight as possible to gain an advantage. There should be 3-4 weight classes max imho. Something like 150,180,210 and 211+.
