The MMA thread
sukotsuto
I'm a really big fan of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), so any discussion related to that sport goes here.

Anyone looking forward to Barnett VS Cornier for the Strikeforce HW Grand Prix finals?
How about GSP VS Conduit?
BJ Penn VS Nick Diaz?
Shogun Rua VS Dan Henderson?

I have just got into MMA this last 4 months, so i don't know a huge amount about many of the fighters yet, I only know Shogun Rua out of those you listed. I watched his first fight against Lyoto Machida, which i think he deserved to win.

I am really looking forward to Jon Jones and Quinton Jackson. I think that will be a great fight when it eventually happens.. Jon Jones has been looking really impressive (+ very creative) but I think Rampage's size + skills will def cause him problems. *EDIT* internet says Jones won in the 4th. I really want to watch that fight

I watched a great fight between Machida + Couture where Machida won with a Karate Kid style crane kick (well as close as you can get in a real fight). Did you see that Suko?

I have been watching a lot of old MMA fights too, i really love it when they have totally different styles against each other. e.g. Sumo VS BJJ

Yeah the judge's decision in Shogun's 1st fight with Machida is total BS - everyone there knows Shogun won the fight. Their rematch made it clear who was the real winner there though Pfft

I haven't watched the Jones and Rampage yet, but from what I've heard, Rampage got dominated by Jones. Rampage at his best would give Jones a lot of trouble, but it's a shame that he hasn't been showing his best on his last few fights. I miss Rampage when he was still fighting in Pride FC...

And that Machida VS Couture fight - that kick was crazy! What a sendoff for Couture's final retirement MMA match.

MMA thread revive with a bit of a blast from the past! Pfft

Here's a video of old-school late 90s Brazilian Vale Tudo scene, where and when it was really no holds barred fighting (with very few rules, unlike today's MMA). WARNING: Not for the faint of heart!
YouTube Video


When the UFC and MMA was banned in the USA during the mid and late 90s, most of the fighters had on a few options:
- Settle with fighting in seedy small-time events or within native american reservations for low pay
- Fight in Japan, which is higher paying, but would only take in fighters who already made a name for themselves and is pretty much by invite

or...

- Fight in Brazil, taking a risk going against other pros and having very few rules to protect the fighters



Guys like Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva fought in those events early in their career Pfft

Early Gracie stuff was down right brutal and fun to watch, banning it was pretty lame considering everyone involved did so willingly. As usual the sack of shit we call the US Government thinks we are impressionable babies who need nursing. Thumbs Down

I watched Pancrase and Dream sporadically over the years, a bit more than UFC though I was never really seriously into any of it as I never really had the time to enjoy it. HDNET used to have all sorts of good stuff I had never seen before. Caught the stuff on Showtime [Strikeforce ?] and it seemed kinda sub par fighter wise vs UFC but it was worth checking out.

Lately I have been watching older Couture UFC fights and that guy still amazes me every time. So what other leagues are happening these days ? I have been digging the Ultimate Fighter the last few years minus the lame drama its great to see those guys beat the shit out of each other Grin

Its fun to see where they end up after the show ends. The thing that I really don't like about the UFC is they are a bunch of greedy bastards when it comes to the purse. Much like we are finding out with retired NFL guys there will be a huge amount of MMA fighters who will have huge mental issues later in life. They should be paying these guys enough to be ready for something along those lines considering without any of them these leagues wouldn't exist.

Look what these guys make off of pay per view alone, a few percent of that seems fair to me :( But you know how it goes. The ones that work the hardest get paid the least.
I spent most of the eighties, most of my life, riding around in somebody else's car, in possession of, or ingested of, something illegal, on my way from something illegal to something illegal with many illegal things happening all around me.
