Let's see if Sonnen can DO something with a takedown (other than get embarassed on the fmat, I mean)

Isn't there also a CageWarriors thing tonight?

Nope, the next Cage Warriors card is next weekend on the 24th.  There is a Cage Wars event today.  Similar name, different promotion.

The UFC schedule for today is:

Facebook prelims start at 4:30 PM ET here:  http://www.facebook.com/UFC/app_247211121995467
UFC.Com link for Facebook prelims:  http://www.ufc.com/media/ufc-fox-sports-1-prelims
They should also be available on YouTube, but I couldn't find a link.

Prelims start at 6 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Main card starts at 8 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

2013-08-17 01:23:28 PM
Just checked.  Fox Sports 1 is up and running.

My Dish TV Channel Guide  still lists it as the Speed Channel, but it is broadcasting as Fox Sports 1 now.

You really think Sonnen-Rua will go the distance?  They're both, um, aging.
Rua will try to stand him up and second intention kick him. Sonnen will take him down and mangrind him until Rua submits him.

If Alcantara's improved his wrestling, the Faber fight could be really excellent.

Heavyweight slugfests bore me somewhat.
Do you think Overeem-Brown will a) go to the mat or b) ever get out of the "bad breath zone"?

I think that if Overeem doesn't get many shots in and gets hit clean, he'll sweat it and hit a TD. I think that this will happen, and I'm pretty sure Overeem can sub Browne.

Rua has never won a decision in the UFC, oddly he seems to consistently own rounds 4 and 5 when fights make it that far. I'm not on the "Rua's cardio sucks" wagon so much as that guy really needs to quit eating heavy shots like they're snacks. Sonnen, on the other hand, has yet to win in the distance. He's shown no ability to win at 205 and I think he caves mentally. I expect Rua to take advantage of this in the late rounds.

I don't understand how people keep watching UFC. It always comes down to someone getting an armbar or some other solid lock, and the match being ended. I've never seen an actual toe-to-toe martial arts fight that went the whole distance with both guys staying on their feet. It ALWAYS seems to degrade to two guys rolling around on the floor trying to get each other in a lock, or pin the other guy down to deliver a few elbows.

Of course, I dropped out of watching it a long time ago... Maybe I missed that one time the two guys actually fought instead of wrestling... But what I remember is the Gracies basically turning the whole thing into a competition to see who would get an armbar or joint lock first.

If they wanted it to be interesting, they'd ban wrestling on the floor. If you get off your feet and drop to the floor willingly, you're out.

That's becayse you don't know f*ck all about martial arts. You just watched too many movies about them. There have been plenty of fights that consisted of pure stand up and striking but to say that wrestling isn't fighting just reeks of anime fanboyism.


Armbars and chokes et al END fights even more effectively than a KO. If you can't fight on the ground you will be eaten alive by those that can. 15 years ago the UFC proved that. Dozens of martial LARPists thought they could bring something as one dimensional as "just standing up" and got clowned.


Go back to fapping to Naruto reruns kid.

The troll attempt loses points for not using the phrase "like a man"  after "staying on their feet."

2/10

nice reversal...  and then one of those rare knockouts!

I see.  It counts as a submission then.

Back now.  Right after the fight ended.  Great.

Howie Spankowitz: Back now.  Right after the fight ended.  Great.


So, far I'm getting a good picture with no loss of signal on the ufc.com link.

Manny has a great background on paper, but he never lives up to it in the cage.

He falls for trivial shiat.

10-9 Manny.  29-28 Miller.  But that second round was really close.
 
2013-08-17 05:56:16 PM
I can see 29-28 for either Cole or Manvil, but 30-27 for Manny??? Did that judge watch the first?
 
2013-08-17 05:59:15 PM
I scored round 1 for Miller, but I could easily see it for Manny. All the rounds were fairly close.

I agree. There is no way in hell Chael wins this. Chael at 205 in a 5 rounder vs. a Brazilian? Not happening.

Up until yesterday, oddsmaker Tyrone Biggums somehow had him as the favorite...
