    The Authentic Official Robert "The Reaper" Whittaker Undefeated, Undisputed Middleweight Champion / General MMA Thread

    Cejudo will shut down TJ´s striking with his wrestling and win a boring decision. If you look at TJ´s record you don´t find one single guy that resembles Cejudo, it´s gonna be interesting to see.

    Well...... I never heard of him so I typed his name on google. Apparently he never fought before, in anything. Who is this guy ?

    It was a sport more for tough people than it is today sure, today is all about bragging about how much money you have and how much of a brat kid you sound in twitter. To quote Tony Soprano, what happened with Gary Cooper, the silent tough type ? I mean, this generation in any combat sport, mma...

    Discussion Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner January 19

    Broner is the perfect opponent for Pacquiao. Doesn´t move well, low workrate, not a level of power to make Pacquiao respect him... PAcquiao should KO him if he still has something, even if he is shot he wins most of the rounds and get the W still.

    Yeah, we all know PRIDE was shitting all over the UFC back then. But I forgot how bad the UFC used to be... and the UFC had a certain "face" that made it look such a meathead redneck style of sport, this Chris Leben vs Patrick Cote fight is a horrible fight in terms of striking skills and Leben...

    Rewatching some old UFC dvds that I have right now. UFC Fight Night 1, year 2005 I believe.... fucking hell, some henious striking back then, really bad (after all, the best strikers in those years where in PRIDE, and some good ones, Cro Cop, Kharitonov, Vochanchyn...) Easy to forget too how...

    I watched Jimmy Smith interview on the subject and he thinks it´s a way of keeping the fighters well behaved. I mean, after their careers, which is a short one, fighters really are lost, even if they saved money (a few on top) it´s a lot of years ahead on your life, you gotta have a job after...

    And btw, I don´t like what the UFC is doing with their broadcasting, they fired Jimmy Smith and they intent to have Joe Rogan as the only non-former fighter in their roster for broadcasting, it will be 100% former or even current fighters (UFC fighters) comentating.

    So, Firas Zahabi said he thinks Holloway would beat McGregor today if they fought, McGregor didn´t like and said that since Firas never fought MMA he should shut up. Good video by Luke, he is 100% right.

    And in this video you can see how Kron defends any slam by grabbing the leg of his opponent.

    Arona was not exatcly pulling guard there though was he ? As soon as your opponent got up on his feet you should let it go.

    What are the opinions here regarding pulling guard in a MMA fight ? Would you tell your fighter to never pull guard in a MMA fight ? Never ? I´m looking forward to see Kron Gracie in the UFC because I´m sure he will pull guard in his fights sometimes...

    If we think about it, it´s really ridiculous that it was, after all, a simple boxing rules match against a kickboxer undersized prospect. Hilarious.

    The feeling I have looking at the first knockdown (and the third) is the same that I have when I look Ali vs Liston in their rematch and Holmes vs Alfredo Evangelista. That feeling that an acting is happening. Nobody can prove it though, and maybe it wasn´t a fix in the sense that it was all...

    It does look staged and more important, if you are familiar with how things are handled in Japan regarding MMA and Kickboxing... you GOTTA be suspicious when you look at those knockdowns. (it is notorious that the japanese mafia is under all these events) It wouldn´t be the first fixed fight in...
