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

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.

That said:

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...

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.

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.


He's a devout Christian, so he has a lot of pride in his record, which is what Jesus was big on.  Pride.
 
2013-08-17 06:42:38 PM  
Wow. That was something.
 
2013-08-17 06:42:41 PM

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.

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).

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.

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

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

I'd say Johnson won that round as well.

2013-08-17 08:29:49 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.

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

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.

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)

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.

+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)


I've never been the sports betting type, and was always mildly curious what the odds meant, but too lazy to look it up. Thanks for answering that guy's question. You've also taught me.

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.

libranoelrose: Really looking forward to this fight.


Yeah, I was really looking forward to it too, big fan of both those guys. Dammit. Wanted 3 rounds.

What's your MA background?

Got it.  Mixed means only mixing about half of the martial arts.

Well, I guess you gotta call out somebody.

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?

Nice to see Uriah actually being pushed to fight.. I'm usually disappointed by his fights.
 
2013-08-17 09:39:54 PM  
Hell of a fight so far
 
2013-08-17 09:40:59 PM  
Hard to score. Faber 10-9 due to having actually landed some elbows.
 
2013-08-17 09:41:13 PM  
Tough round to call.  I'll go 10-9 Yuri
 
2013-08-17 09:42:10 PM  
Close round. 10-9 Faber
 
2013-08-17 09:42:51 PM  
a USA chant? C'mon Boston, don't be those guys.
 
2013-08-17 09:43:05 PM  
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
 
2013-08-17 09:45:29 PM  
 I didn't hear the USA chants when the Irish & English fighters were out there... huh
 
2013-08-17 09:45:56 PM  
Uriah with a great bounce-back round.  Definitely taking control of the fight.

Fabers ground game is just insane in this fight.. He's making it look like he's practicing with a weight bag..
 
2013-08-17 09:52:47 PM  
Dude, he grabbed the cage to swing into the arm bar position and start this whole thing off.

Farking cocksucker.

Ouch, Ouch... Oh that's not so... shiat.

Sounds like a couple gave the second round to Faber 10-8.  Can't argue with that too much.

so.. any Overeem fans in the house?

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.

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

I like Overeem a lot, but he's been a tremendous disappointment since the Strikeforce grand prix.

I have zero tolerance if the fingers close around the links, if only for a fraction of a second.

His fingers definitely clamped down.

styckx: The Bestest: Overeem

I honestly don't even know how he's still in the UFC..


He's very popular. He sold the second- most gear in 2011, right behind Nickname Diaz. People like silly sh*t.

I know his history, and his K1 fights are what won me over, not so much his MMA credentials, but still, he hasn't lived up to even a fraction of the hype.


...browne's getting beaten like a heavy bag.

If Chael and Vitor can get LHW shots, there's no reason Overeem should surprise you. Not that it's right, it is just the way the UFC rolls.

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