RepoManTSM: Already a nut shot?


Seriously, they are getting annoying with the frequency lately.

libranoelrose: Did Joes just say the Blackzillians have a great camp?


Well they have some talented fighters, but until they start racking up the wins it's just another fight camp IMO.

There has to be a picture of Wanderlei Silva's first or second fight, where he eyelid is cut so bad his eyeball is almost falling out. I will look for it :-)

At least that one was a genuine accident, unlike that toe-kicking BS we saw in Brazil.

save russian jews: Holy shiat you guys pick fights terribly.


Yeh... I shouldn't talk, since I didn't do picks, but I'm surprised at how many are picking Cung Le over Cote. I LOVE watching Le fight and would love to see him win, but I'd be shocked if he did.

The worst I've seen are a cut on Marvin Eastman's face, and a cut on Abe Wagner's head during the heavyweight season of TUF. Both just awful.

I chose Le because he has great kicks to the body, which is the one thing Cote doesn't handle well. His chin is iron though, so if Le tries knocking him out that way he's going to have a long night.

My stomach still knots up when I think of the cutman pulling the skin flap back.

Klippoklondike: Go to thefirstrow.eu, then the mma/boxing link. You are welcome.


This is working for the prelims, currently.

Thanks!

Flappyhead: NorCalLos: the biggest redneck here: you are a puppet: I just wonder if Silva is going to be able to back up his promise of breaking all Sonnens bones and teeth before the ref stoppage.

Seriously, if Sonnen wins this thing I'll eat my hat. (Not seriously) (But he's not going to win)

Nobody learns to wrestle at 37, and Silva is AWFUL at it. Tonight is probably going to be a more competitive version of their first fight.

There you go with the white wrestlers again.

One of these days I'm gonna pass the hat around and get the two of you in a cage.


Funny. (That's about all I can say here without going all ITG.) But seriously, mostly just stirring the pot early to get things going. I figure a lively thread to go with the awesome card.

FYI: I forget who it is that does the .gifs, but I saw something the other day about the UFC cracking down on those.

But, I did this and people are biatching. Damned if I do, damned if I don't. Could we just focus on the fights?
 
2012-07-07 08:20:30 PM
I think Sonnen will always have a chance-win through "control" in the grappling from takedowns, but I can't root for him. This dude, with a couple of exceptions, is great at getting his TD, great at keeping his opponent on his back but dishes out punches that are simply designed to avoid the standup from the ref. He doesn't really pass guard. He doesn't really care to advance position. I've always found this fight style to be boring as hell.

The thing is, Sonnen's boxing is actually pretty good. His TD setups are great. It just sucks to watch him lay in guard and deliver pitter-pat busy punches for five rounds.

So far


1) Everybody post your predictions (let's see fWc steal THIS)
2) Complain the headline left out start times for the prelims
3) Sweaty dick punching cartoon
4) RING GIRLS
6) How coked up IS Rogan tonight ?
7) Old UFC vs new UFC snobbery
8) I could totally beat both these guys
9) BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD
10) You know this is all fixed/ a work right ?
11) My predictions all suck
12) My predictions are dead on
13) It's only ghey if you make eye contact.jpeg

Because it was such a non-factor in their first fight, right Einstein?

NorCalLos:

I wonder if they'll start using some sort of instant replay on it. You can tell a lot from the type of kick thrown and the distance between the fighters. For example tonight Allesio was stepping backwards as the kick was thrown, obviously not intentional.

NorCalLos: the biggest redneck here: BTW, Dolce and TRT hasve Sonnen at 216 with 7% body fat. He's GIANT for a MW, should have better cardio and energy than ever (not that he's lacked it in the past).


Yup, it's nothing more than sanctioned doping and I hate it. The hearings with the NSAC were a joke, and Sonnen is a criminal in several regards. He also drop dimes on people. If you want me to defend Sonnen as a human, you're barking up the wrong tree. He's an idiot, criminal, and snitch.

See my comment above, where I quoted Silva. He said much the same thing, and then all but threatened to take him out in a body bag.

Interesting end to that fight. Even though he spent most of the round with a back mount, he did little damage and ended the round in the inferior position.

It's not unheard of. Thiago Silva walks around at 200 and Dan Hardy hovered between 190-195 most of the time.

I always hate the fighters who get pissed when their opponents fight in a style that doesn't play into their strengths. Don't biatch about the other guy's style (as long as it's within the rules, of course), adjust your game so that he can't.

He was 20 lbs over with 24 hours to go, so it's not really a surprise.

29-28 Roller.

I know he has his own diet plan that people can buy, and he says there is no starving, no sauna work to lose water weight, etc. It is supposed to be a revolution in weight cutting. I have a hard time believing it is healthy to lose 20 pounds in one day, then gain 31 the next, but I guess tonight will tell?
