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.

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...

I have the utmost respect for combat sports, and a large part of that is respect for the sport, the competitors, the traditions and the rules.

Yeah, on a serious note, there just isn't any excuse for a professional fighter to have cardio issues, especially at lighter weight classes.

People have been building incredible levels of endurance for, literally, thousands of years.  Combat sports are not new, and their physical and respiratory requirements are not unheard of or novel.  You don't have endurance, both specific or general (SPP and GPP, as referred to in many Soviet texts), unless you're stupid, or lazy.

Or, if your trainers are stupid, or lazy.

I have no patience for fighters without gas tanks.

HOLY shiat
 
2013-08-17 06:44:50 PM
That was quick... I didn't pick siler only because in his topology pic, he looks like a girl
 
2013-08-17 06:44:58 PM
Yep.. He was definitely out for a flash.

Looked like the last punch that landed turned him back on.

Jensaarai: Bendo's comment about the Pettis thing being a stain on his soul in the promos kinda has me wanting him to lose. I don't mind a bit of Jesus talk at the end of a fight (even if I might make fun of it occasionally) but that comment just strikes me as wrong in so many ways.


I would say his illegitimate robbery win in the second fight against Edgar is a bigger stain than his loss to Pettis, I hope he loses again, preferably by violent finish this time (with a sleeping referee so he can eat a few extra shots).

He's a devout Christian, so he has a lot of pride in his record, which is what Jesus was big on.  Pride.


Funny. Also, I finally got around to doing my picks. Not doing too well so far.

styckx: psychicdeath99: Meh.  I had some of those KFC hotshot bites yesterday.  Like most things that are advertised as blazing hot, they were pretty mild.

Nanny state shiat.. If they were actually "blazing hot" someone would sue in a heartbeat...  Gotta remember, we live in a world where even if something is clearly labeled and 400% accurately labeled people can still sue and get paid for being assholes.


What does a nanny state have to do with lawsuits? Also, you do realize lawsuits aren't guaranteed money, right? And if you lose, you often end up paying the court costs and your opponent's attorney fees. And suing over spicy food being too spicy would be difficult to succeed at, unless it causes legitimate health problems in which case the place deserves to be sued.

McGregor is just relentless.
 
2013-08-17 07:12:02 PM
Irish guy has some talent, but he needs to farking stop taunting and waving his arms around.

It's his SECOND UFC fight.  He's from Ireland, not Compton.  Jesus.
 
2013-08-17 07:12:16 PM
10-9 McGregor

Not digging the taunting, though
 
2013-08-17 07:12:43 PM
Well, color me impressed by the Irishman so far.

Hawaii has incredible BJJ and GJJ schools.  If you train there, you have no excuse not to be a world-class grappler.

Does McGregor think this is Pro Wrestling? There is no 3 count in MMA
 
2013-08-17 07:24:35 PM
So that's what the 10 second clapper looks like!

10-9 McGregor.  30-27
 
2013-08-17 07:24:37 PM

styckx: Does McGregor think this is Pro Wrestling? There is no 3 count in MMA


Yeah, he started off really well, but I am amazed that he didn't finish and in the later rounds, when on top, didn't manage his time well or really try to hammer out the finish.
 
2013-08-17 07:27:09 PM

styckx: Does McGregor think this is Pro Wrestling? There is no 3 count in MMA


I'm thinking he's cocky enough to already be thinking ahead to his next fight. Can't build hype if you need a 6 month layoff. Sure, a decision doesn't do much, but keeping your powder dry until you get a higher level opponent is unfortunately part of the UFC game these days.
 
2013-08-17 07:27:55 PM
30-26 ?


Yeouch
 
2013-08-17 07:30:32 PM
Or he farked his knee. Either way.

10-9 McD. I almost wanna give it a 10-8
 
2013-08-17 07:44:44 PM
10-9 McDonald.  Would have been 10-8 but Pickett fights back well after taking a ton of punishment.
 
2013-08-17 07:45:01 PM

Main card.  Time to change the channel or find a stream!

Sure is nice to have the prelims and main card on the same channel.
 
2013-08-17 08:03:10 PM
Epic opening segment.  Not exactly Face The Pain, but a nice intro nonetheless..  Did a good job make this seem like a big deal..
 
2013-08-17 08:15:37 PM
War Lauzon!!!
 
2013-08-17 08:20:29 PM
10-9 Johnson
 
2013-08-17 08:21:19 PM
Johnson won that round handily.
 
2013-08-17 08:21:20 PM
Man, I like Michael Johnson, but he just doesn't have it. I hate to even say that because sometimes Joe seems to try to wear out his opponent's hands with his head. Yep. Not a great first round for Joe. Ugh.
 
2013-08-17 08:25:10 PM
Joe slowly battling back.. Johnson is getting gassed
 
2013-08-17 08:26:45 PM
10-9 Johnson.  Took it right at the end.  20-18
 
2013-08-17 08:26:48 PM
I'd say Johnson won that round as well.
 
2013-08-17 08:29:45 PM
That's a bumpy face
 
2013-08-17 08:29:49 PM
Joe isn't even trying. He hasn't really tried all fight.. He showed up, that's about it
 
2013-08-17 08:30:21 PM
Lauzon is getting his ass kicked.
 
2013-08-17 08:32:57 PM
Damn.. That takedown at the end was a nice exclamation point
 
2013-08-17 08:32:57 PM
So much for another bonus.  Did Lauzon have a shiatty weight cut or is he sick? Looks like the Boston Zombie out there. Hands down, head only moves straight back (if at all), tried like maybe 2-3 takedowns. I know he got a bit rocked in the first, but he never seemed like he was ever really in this fight.
 
2013-08-17 08:33:02 PM
10-9 Johnson. 30-27

/I hope Cecil is judging.
 
2013-08-17 08:33:15 PM
Well, that was an ass-kicking
 
2013-08-17 08:33:50 PM
Fark. Joe Lauzon looked like crap. I think Rogan was right. He took too much abuse in the 1st and Johnson was just too fast.
 
2013-08-17 08:33:53 PM
Lozons cunning plan to wear Johnson out with his face didn't go so well.  Got his ass kicked.
 
2013-08-17 08:35:00 PM

psychicdeath99: 10-9 Johnson. 30-27

/I hope Cecil is judging.


Me too man, me too....
 
2013-08-17 08:35:04 PM
Lauzon looked unusually timid.  It reminds me when he got knocked out by Pettis.  He seemed a bit withdrawn and not his usual aggressive self.
 
2013-08-17 08:35:27 PM
The Boston crowd isn't gonna like this
 
2013-08-17 08:35:45 PM
30-25?
lol
 
2013-08-17 08:35:53 PM
Ouch.  30-25 is pretty harsh.
 
2013-08-17 08:36:13 PM

That was weird.  Johnson looked the best he ever has, and Lauzon looked like he wasn't all there.  Oh well.  That's why they fight and don't declare a winner on paper beforehand.
 
2013-08-17 08:38:04 PM
Luzon's style has caught up with him, time to retire.

Johnson winning against Lauzon so handily is weird.

Hall doesn't have the mentality to be an elite cagefighter.
 
2013-08-17 09:03:15 PM
Lol.
 
2013-08-17 09:03:21 PM

2013-08-17 09:03:32 PM
Lol wtf?!
 
2013-08-17 09:03:44 PM
10-9 Hall.  29-28 Hall.  another 30 seconds could have been another story, though
 
2013-08-17 09:03:54 PM
That's Rua's move, man.
 
2013-08-17 09:04:35 PM
Okay. Well... that was a thing.
 
2013-08-17 09:05:09 PM
I think Hall edged him out in the last round.

10-9 Hall

29-28 Hall

Wouldn't shock me if Howard wins though.
 
2013-08-17 09:05:47 PM
what's the opposite of FotN?
 
2013-08-17 09:06:09 PM

2013-08-17 09:06:19 PM
30-27? Wtf?!
 
2013-08-17 09:06:25 PM
The 30-27 was weird, but it was close enough either could have won it.
 
2013-08-17 09:06:31 PM
That's one of those fights where even the winner is still the loser
 
2013-08-17 09:06:49 PM
I dunno where they got 30-27 Howard, if that's really what I heard. I can buy 29-28 though.

I'm at the pizza shop tonight, and missing the fights. I'm dvr'ing them at the house, so I won't be hanging around in here. I do have a question. How does one interpret the odds that are shown after the fighters names? I'll see something like Askren (+204) vs Lyman (-112), and I'd like to know what the numbers mean.

Looks like a pretty good card all the way through.

In short, negative numbers equal favorites and positives are dogs.

The number, say +204 represents that you would win $204 if you bet $100. -112 represents that you would need to be $112 to win $100

+204 means that if you bet $100 on Askren and he wins, you win $204 (plus your original $100).  -112 means that in order to win 1
$100, you need to bet $112.  So if Lyman wins and you bet $112, you win $100 plus your original $112. (or more likely you bet a nice round $100 and get back your original $100 plus around $90 of profit... too lazy to do the math)

2013-08-17 09:25:58 PM

One Bad Apple: ZeroCorpse: 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.



1. I  HATE anime and manga, so f♥ck you and your "witty" swipe.

2. I'm in my 40s, so f♥ck you with that "kid" bullshiat. (Didn't I say I stopped watching when the Gracies were dominating UFC? What was that? 25 years ago?)

3. BOXERS seem to be fully capable of having an entire match without ending up on the ground. I never did, anyway, when I was doing it (tell me again how I don't understand any martial arts, by the way.) Kickboxers also manage to fight several rounds without grappling on the canvas. I'm pretty sure all the karate matches I saw ended without anyone wrapping his legs around the other guy's head, too.

If you like to watch wrestling, that's fine. They should stop calling it MMA and start calling it wrestling, because that's what it comes down to. Maybe the ground fighters DO dominate, but that doesn't make it fun  to watch.

I think the UFC would be better off if just threw the "competition" aspect out of the window and focused on trying to entertain the fans.  You can script the outcomes to make them more exciting, and yeah, you can do mat wrestling and stuff, but you could do some really flashy moves to get the crowd worked up.  And you'll have some people here and there call it "fake", but you're not gonna do it to their face.  Get what I'm saying?

Are they USA chants? Ugh.
 
2013-08-17 09:44:15 PM
I don't know why more fighters grab their own shorts while grappling.

When Faber had his left arm around the back of the head, he could have grabbed his shorts and kept the guy under control without securing his other arm.  Simple JJ stuff, man.
 
2013-08-17 09:44:37 PM
those elbows gotta hurt

I don't really call myself a "fan" of individual fighters, but I was excited when he came to the UFC. Not so much after her pissed dirty, then got his ass TKO'd by Bifgoot.

Yamasaki is seriously the worst ref of all time, BTW. Him and Yves Lavigne. But for some reason, Mazzagatti catches all the shiat.

Exactly what I was saying.

Ref let Browne get pummeled without improving position for quite a while, including dropping down after knees and eating a few illegal knees.

He should have given Reem a few more fists before stepping in.

At least to be even; the Reem didn't look "out" and Browne did get a gimme from being down and just covering. And to let Browne get a little back for the illegal knee to the melon when he was down.

It's not just the number of shots; it's the position and level of consciousness. Allistair was dropped with a front kick to the jaw. Browne was dropped with knees to the body and was blocking all the shots to the head.

Yamasaki is seriously the worst ref of all time, BTW. Him and Yves Lavigne. But for some reason, Mazzagatti catches all the shiat.

Now. farking typo.


At least Yves can breakdance.

2013-08-17 10:23:06 PM

the biggest redneck here: Hamilstan: the biggest redneck here: The Bestest: so.. any Overeem fans in the house?

Betting against Overroid has been the most consistent thing in sports betting for a while now. He's got lots of fans/believers.

 I don't understand. He's only lost once in the ring in 5+ years.

I can beat cans, too. Non-cans, not so much.


How is betting against him "the most consistent thing in sports betting" if you win only 2 out of 12 bets?
 
2013-08-17 10:23:36 PM

Lt. Cheese Weasel: He wasn't defending himself at all.  Brown was at least covering.  Good stoppage, IMO.


Agreed.  Browne got swarmed but was never out of it.  Reem got chopped down like a damn tree.  We've all seen that look dozens of times before.

Good stoppage.  Well-earned victory by Browne.  He'll eventually get a title shot.

Jensaarai: Testiclaw: Hamilstan: Testiclaw: That was way fast stoppage, compared to what the ref let Browne go through.

Agree. Don't think he would have recovered, but it was quick by comparison.

Same here.

I don't think Reem would have done anything except eat more shots.  But he should have had the same kind of chance as Browne was given.

Including or excluding a few free illegal blows?


I only saw one illegal knee and it didn't do any more damage than the ten strikes before and five after it.
 
2013-08-17 10:25:04 PM

This shiat's too weird.  Rua's wearing pants.  What the fark.

He's always had an inner-arm one, but the number/size has gradually increased over the years.

If Chael wins, he'll be even more insufferable than he normally is...

I just noticed that too.  New sponsor, new shorts...it's just weird considering RUa has worn the same damn shorts for YEARS.


Chael's looking good so far too.  He's playing it out exactly the way he needs to.
 
2013-08-17 10:37:39 PM

Might as well do the tally of One Bad Apple's checklist while we're waiting for the presser.  I'll assume Dana WILL drop an F-bomb, so that one will get checked preemptively.

1) Everybody post your Tapology predictions (let's see fWc steal THIS)
2) Complain about picks not updating

3) White knighting from modmins about bandwith or some shiat
4) Hey where did that post go ?
5) Seriously, how the f*ck does Sonnen keep getting booked ?
6) Crowd boos anything but standup striking
7) Old MMA vs new MMA snobbery

8) Wardrobe malfunction
9) BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD
10) ARMS FOR THE ARMOIRE
11) My predictions all suck
12) My predictions are dead on
13) LAY AND PRAY
14) RING GIRLS
15) Does anyone have a link to the post fight presser

16) I can't believe ____ got an announcing job instead of Bas
17) NUTSHOT
18) Slow mo replay of nutshot from 4 different camera angles
19) Crowd cheers for nutshot replays (trust me I know my people)
20) Is this the best local talent they could find ?
21) Hernandez jersey
22) LEEVER SHOT
23) SOMEONE MAKE A .gif OF THAT
24) The biggest fight of _____'s career
25) What the fark kind of walkout music is THAT ?
26) The prelim fights were all better than the main card
27) The presser was more exciting than the main card
28) That fight in the stands was more exiting than the main card
29) Dana drops the F-bomb. Drink. (fFc is not responsible for acute cirrhosis)
30) SPINNING BACKFIST
31) SPINNING BACKFAIL
32) What the fark fight are the judges watching ?
33) Cecil Peoples is the devil
34) That fight was stopped too soon
35) That fight should have been stopped sooner

36) EYE SCREAM
37) Hork inducing replays of torture pr0n-esque attempted eye removal
38) Injury so horrific that it does NOT get a replay.

I count 19,  Dissappointing lack of nutshots and eye pokes or it would have been higher.

Overeem has been getting KO'd for years.  Either he has a glass jaw, or he's been hit too many times.  Either way, his best days are behind him (especially now that he knows he's under PED scrutiny), and he isn't going to be UFC champ anytime soon.

Fun fact: Overeem has been KO'd or TKO'd by Little Nog, Fabbricio Werdum, Shogun Rua, and Chuck Liddell.

Culinary union tried to stir up trouble placing roadblocks in the way.  Things like having a hearing trying to block Chael's licence to fight in Massachusetts because of his conviction, etc.

Why is Dana not biatching about the worst fight of the night? He alluded to the fact it was awful but reserved himself.. I love when Dana rips on shiat fights ..

Holy crap, can't belive I won, lol.  Thanks sir!

Again, sorry I missed out on most of the thread.  An old friend of mine got married tonight, and it was a 7 hour drive just to get here 15 minutes before it began.  In the hotel now.

Looks like some awesome fights happened tonight.

For me, the cherry on top would be if Overeem tests positive after the loss....

Conor McGregor.

He had a great fight, even if he acted like a Nick Diazesque douche with the taunting.

ZeroCorpse:


1. I HATE anime and manga, so f♥ck you and your "witty" swipe.

2. I'm in my 40s, so f♥ck you with that "kid" bullshiat. (Didn't I say I stopped watching when the Gracies were dominating UFC? What was that? 25 years ago?)

3. BOXERS seem to be fully capable of having an entire match without ending up on the ground. I never did, anyway, when I was doing it (tell me again how I don't understand any martial arts, by the way.) Kickboxers also manage to fight several rounds without grappling on the canvas. I'm pretty sure all the karate matches I saw ended without anyone wrapping his legs around the other guy's head, too.

If you like to watch wrestling, that's fine. They should stop calling it MMA and start calling it wrestling, because that's what it comes down to. Maybe the ground fighters DO dominate, but that doesn't make it fun to watch.


1) OK you're not an anime fanboy. You're a bandwagon zombie craze nutrider. That's actually worse but someone might admire your bravery for admitting it..

2) I'm 43. Get off my lawn. The Gracies introduced the UFC to a US audience in 1993. I highly doubt you were a Vale Tudo fan before that and even if you were you might have noticed that grapplers STILL dominated.

3) Back in the days when MMA was mostly style vs style boxers and kickboxers showed up and got embarrassed. The krotty guy only stayed on his feet until the grappler decided different. Even when 2 strikers fought each other it ended up on the ground because they would tangle up and trip.

I will say you don't know f*ck all about fighting Your martial arts prolly consisted of some strip mall McDojo ninja wannabe training. While you're impressing us all with your blackbelt mill credentials you might as well throw in some stories about your time in the marine "core"

If seeing a slick submission or an escape does nothing for you stick to watching Hollywood movies. Reality isn't your thing, snowflake.

Overeem is overdone two flash KO's in two fights, he's gonna be Lesnar'd.
 
2013-08-18 01:06:03 AM

psychicdeath99: Ariel Helwani  @arielhelwani
Q: what are you going to do with Alistair? Dana: I don't know. Browne: you're welcome.


Hopefully, Dana's noncommittal answer means they are cutting him. Usually, if they are keeping a guy around after a loss, Dana will vocally back his fighter.

Since joining the UFC, Alistair Overeem retired the company's all time biggest PPV draw, pissed hot and scrapped a title fight, talked a bunch of shiat towards Bigfoot only to get comically KTFO, and managed to get knocked out by Travis farking Browne even after being gifted illegal knee shots by the most incompetent ref in the sport.

Overeem is a cancer on MMA. Let him go to Bellator so we can see Bjorn Rebney promote a fight against Rampage as the biggest fight of all time.
 
2013-08-18 01:08:53 AM
Ehh Lesnar was on the way out when Overeem broke him. His previous fights showed he couldn't take a punch, he wasn't going to win the title again.
 
2013-08-18 01:36:27 AM

SenorBenedict: Ehh Lesnar was on the way out when Overeem broke him. His previous fights showed he couldn't take a punch, he wasn't going to win the title again.


IIRC, he had pretty much retired before the fight and hadn't fought in a year or so or had one fight in the last two years or something... I think it was one of those where they were using the star on his way out to give the guy coming in some quick cred. Not white knighting Overreem, though. He's a douche.
 
2013-08-18 01:39:39 AM

Orgasmatron138: Overeem has been getting KO'd for years.  Either he has a glass jaw, or he's been hit too many times.  Either way, his best days are behind him (especially now that he knows he's under PED scrutiny), and he isn't going to be UFC champ anytime soon.

Fun fact: Overeem has been KO'd or TKO'd by Little Nog, Fabbricio Werdum, Shogun Rua, and Chuck Liddell.


You left out Sergei Kharitonov.
 
2013-08-18 01:41:15 AM
Yeah Lesnar couldn't run back to WWE fast enough following the loss to Overeem. Easier playing a monster than having to worry about getting hit in the face for real.

Overeem is still a douche and dumb, I think it was Bas Rutten who called out after he lost to Big Foot he's stopped keeping his block up and paid for it. And once again tonight same thing. I wonder if they'll give him a title shot anyway.

Chael winning at least means an interesting WWE style heel who can shockingly win with authority against not quite champions is still playing around for the time being.

He actually beat Vitor twice. He did tap to strikes against Arona, however.

It's harder for me to participate in the UFC threads in summer, but I can say this: one of you knows your shiat, one of you doesn't know shiat. I'm taking the bad apple in my corner. FWIW.

Been gone for 3 days to Glacier National Park. No tv, no phone, the good life.

My first impressions from the first Fox Sports 1 show:

LOVE the low, mat level camera angle. Adds something special (IMO) to understanding close in ground game fighting.

Overeem is over. Won't miss him a bit.

So much for banding someone straight out of TUF "the next great fighter". Congrats Dana. You got to back pedal so fast, you nearly fell over.

Lastly, got to watch a grizzly bear chase a mountain goat mama and it's baby across a glacier at 7000 (well, 6696) feet. Straight out of Planet earth. The baby ran down the sheerest cliff you can imagine, while the mama led the grizzly away. Totally amazing.
