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

^Dang. Yet another bummer. Is this a pattern or what, I feel like vs Rockhold was his first miss, and that makes two straight now.



Done my predictions and only just now saw how STACKED this card is!!! My goodness. Bektic/Lamas will be great. Return of Do Bronx will be great. Gadelha taking Esparza's lunch money will be great. Excited to see how Anderson looks. Main event obviously great, co-main likewise. Pettis/Benavidez is also incredibly interesting.

I vehemently disagree with him even having a spot on the roster in the first place, but he's here now and he's shown up to fight, so fuck it, right? War Punk!

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

Anyone watching this Ariel is freestyle singing to himself to pass the time until Yoel tries weighing in in a few minutes:





EDIT: Shit, he's still over by 0.2lbs. They're not letting him try again, so that's that. Either the fight will be cancelled (unlikely) or it becomes a non-title fight. Twice in a row now for Yoel. Not a good look.

Damn it Yoel! There's always something ffs. Hopefully Whittaker does the fans a favour and takes the fight, UFC need to pay him. Guessing the RDA/Colby fight takes maim event and Yoel/Bobby takes co-main.

Yoel should think about LHW now.

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

For someone who doesn't tend to know the ins and outs of a fart when it comes to all the UFC competitors. Who is Mike Jackson?

Is he someone who has also transitioned over to MMA? If not then surely, Punk has no chance? Especially if this is a guy who has done MMA his whole life and dedicated most of his life to it?

I wish Punk all the best and hope he wins of course. It'd be massive.

The video below is Mike Jackson having a kickboxing fight. He looks very composed which could possibly see Punk gas himself out trying to land haymakers like Jackson's opponent here. He has been training various martial arts since 2008 apparently and has much more fighting experience and a wider range of skills than Punk. He is quite rightly the favorite as we don't have any info on how Punk has progressed since his last fight. We know he had injuries and hasn't been training constantly ever since, plus the court case must have taken a toll.

I really hope he does it but I'm preparing myself for disappointment. I think the best he can hope is to actually have a fight this time and scrap it for a couple of rounds at least. Get some digs in before his tank empties and Jackson wins on points if he can't get a TKO (which I'll predict he will in the 2nd or 3rd).



Small note, Jackson posted that video himself so it's obviously one of the better examples of his fighting which still isn't that impressive. There may be other fights where he looks atrocious, I dunno.

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

I understand that rules are rules, but taking away a title shot for 0.2 is severe as fuck. Can't they model a system where any overness falling within the decimal point is punished with a fine? With constant last-minute injuries crippling cards, it doesn't help when relatively harmless technicalities do the same thing. I understand it from the standpoint of how determining when it becomes enough to offer leeway after a weigh-in miss can potentially get out of hand, but I think that the consequences for going over an negligable amount should be less severe. A reasonable fine for a negligable amount would at least keep the incentive for fighters to be as precise with their weight as possible.


Sadly the UFC doesn't really have say in this implimented structure, and I seriously doubt that the NYSAC have the promotional aspect of selling fights in mind.
