That's the one. Dude flopped like a dead fish.


This was a pretty awesome one too.

psychicdeath99: violentsalvation: psychicdeath99: violentsalvation: psychicdeath99: violentsalvation: ha HA, Tigers won and the White Sux lost.

Wooohooo. Within 1 1/2 now?

Yup. 1.5 back. The Indians have had a horrible week, lol. 8 loses in a row or something.

Good. Even though I'm in Ohio, I've never liked the Indians. First became a baseball fan as a kid living in the suburbs of Detroit.

My dad and his family are from Adrian and I lived in Belleville for like a year. And that's enough, fark my state's team, GO TIGERS.

Yep. Plus my early baseball memories are pre-playoffs and divisions, when pennant races were insane. So the Tigers were HUGE deal in 1968, especially with McClain winning 31 games.

We only made it to 718 tonight.

dr_blasto: We only made it to 718 tonight.


It's pretty good with the olympics on. UFC 124 we got 243, 125 we got 310, fight for the troops 2 we got 123, and those post counts were good at the time. We're doing well.

This is true.

If most of the regulars had shown up tonight we would be well over 1000+ posts.

I still wonder if they just didn't know about this even, or what.

Super disappointing because this was one of the best events of the last 5 years, at least.

I would have pushed us over 1000k but I didn't want to pay for bww's tonight and played lazy while doing laundry.

The fights were so good, I went long stretches without posting.

I blame the quality for our lack of quantity :-)

I've been listening to an Alaska radio station hosted by a Farker named soosh for the last couple hours. Great music and fun times.

Now, I will drift to sleep, happy with a night of great fights, fun online conversation, and newly found music :-)

violentsalvation: downpaymentblues: The Edgar vs. Henderson fight was controversial? I thought it was pretty clear Henderson won.

It was controversial to Edgar and his corner but nobody else in the world. I'm still looking forward to the rematch though.

cookiefleck: violentsalvation: Phil Davis has one of the craziest bodies.

I give that award to Bader.. He kinda makes me wanna cheat on big country, but I'd feel really bad about it afterwards

You just have crushes on all these dudes!


I,for one, am glad that crush is over.

Actually the last Silva vs Sonnen thread went 1268. The next biggest was Lesnar vs Overeem @ 896


1300 is the new barrier

the biggest redneck here: violentsalvation: WTF, is Brandon Vera back?

The Jones and Henderson beatings look to have taken a lot out of Shogun. Those were both BRUTAL beatings.


I think Shogun is done as a title contender, and should get out of the sport if he wants to save his brain. He cannot take beatings like that and keep coming back for more. Zero head movement is a bad thing, especially in the higher weight classes. Add to that the fact that the Chute boxing guys were notorious for beating the shiat out of each other in training, and you have a leading candidate for CTE.

I'm starting to think that the Hendo/Shogun fight was classic not because both guys were highly competitive, but instead because both guys are getting old (either by age or wear and tear). Unless Hendo connects with an H-Bomb, I don't think his fight with Jones will even be competitive.

I like Vera, and will happily watch him fight, but he's the LHW who fights like a HW - he always looks like he's fighting in a pool of molasses. He's stuck on Tim Sylvia speed. But it does look like he's gotten over the jitters of getting punched in the face after having the broken orbital socket.

Well dammit. Was camping this weekend and missed the card. Bah.
