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




Goodbye Bisping.


Legend.
Off to yer fish n chips shop mate. I keed, I keed.


Regarding Wonderboy and Till - wouldn't call the fight boring, the anticipation of the shots coming with one guy pushing and one guy countering and dashing in and out was a good battle if you ask me. It just needs to go somewhere eventually and apart from the big knockdown this didn't.

Kinda surprised Till still won, I thought Wonderboy had slightly more landed strikes over Till over the 5. But can see the other side too....

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

Bisping has had a strange and memorable journey. Went from being one of the most hated men ever in the sport to being really well liked by the end of his career. And after 10 years of never being able to break past a certain point and being regarded as pillow fisted, finally gets his moment as he wins the title....in the first round....by knockout. The guy has actually been on the good side and bad side of two of the most iconic KOs in MMA history too.

Even though he wasnt really an elite fighter I definitely think hes earned the legend tag by now. Because of his longevity, name value and the moments hes been involved in over the years.

I'll miss him coming out to Blur's Song 2. One of the GOAT MMA entrance themes :(

About 40 of them were fist bumps
:lol



Erm, @DX-Superkick , I disagree with the lack of hype in the OP. The thread OPs are fun to look back on to see what was being hyped at the time the thread was being started. Please add some hype. It's fun!

The next UFC PPV is going to be nuts! :mark:

Don't know what you're talking about! :draper2

Fucking Repped! :lol

I just noticed how much Megan Anderson looks like Cat Valentine in that promo shot. You know, if she were twice the size, a trained fighter and not a pop diva.


I hate to be that guy but I won't miss Bisping. He was a piece of shit for far too long. The disrespect he showed Dan, treating rookies on TUF like shit, intentionally kneeing Jorge Rivera while he was on his knees then spitting on his corner men, refusing to defend the 185 Championship against real challengers and burning flags. Yes, he never used PEDs. And yes he lost an eye but I'd call that karma after what he did to Rivera. :shrug Bisping can truly fuck off.

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.

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 :lmao 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?

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+.
