    A true martial artist walks away from a fight.

    Been some great fights recently actually.

    Good title defence, Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez on Saturday. Evenly matched and went the distance. Shame someone has to lose on points when it's like that. Henderson proposed to his girlfriend at the end which was a nice little end to the night.

    Awesome fight between Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen the week before. I love Faber to bits. I love how he can make a takedown game look exciting.

    Incredible fight between Cat Zingano and Meisha Tate. One of the best fights I've seen this year. Fucking brutal finish by Zingano. Some are saying the stoppage was premature, but I don't think Tate was gonna recover from this:



    So it's Zingano who gets a shot at Ronda Rousey's belt in September. That's gonna be one to get excited about.

    This last season of The Ultimate Fighter was the best so far, too. Good showcase of amateur talent. What a fucking revelation Uriah Hall was. Where's he been hiding all this time? Amazing agility and athleticism. So much raw talent. He can be a real contender if he tightens up his game.

    I really recommend TUF for anyone even mildly interested in MMA. It has a reality TV feel, but there isn't much room for scripted drama typical of the format. It's serious business. The hurt business. The competitors are earning real money in the fights. With a 6 figure fight deal on the line.

    Countdown to UFC 159

    Chael Sonnen would be less of a chump if he didn't say shit like "I destroyed Anderson Silva" No Chael, you didn't destroy him. You lost TWICE against him. While you were on PEDs. Chump.

    He might have rocked Silva a few times, been at an advantage in the fight a few times, but what chumps like Chael don't understand is that champions have that extra reservoir of fight in them and step it up a gear when they have to. Fall seven times, rise eight times. Fight isn't over until it's over.

    Jones vs. Sonnen on Saturday wasn't even a fight. It was an ass kicking. Jones didn't go in the cage to fight or to win, he went in there to hurt Sonnen for everything he said about him.

    I knew Jones would win, but I didn't expect him to just demolish Sonnen so quickly and effortlessly. And to add insult to injury, he beat Sonnen at his own game. Everyone expected Jones to keep Sonnen at range and keep it a stand up fight to avoid the danger he presented. He surprised everyone by fighting Sonnen's typical style of take downs and ground & pound. Schooled him in his own style. Genius. As if I didn't love him enough already.

    Shame about Jones' injury though. Broken toe that looked nasty. Hope it doesn't keep him out of action for long. Was a weird night for injuries.

    That toe looked really awful. I've been into MMA for quite some time now. I'm waiting for the GSP/A. Silva super fight to happen. I remember people from GSP's team saying something about it after GSP's recent fight, but they did say that Anderson has to beat Weidman first.

    Like GSP and A. Silva, Jones has dominated his division, and I think there's nothing left for him at 205. The next move for him would probably be moving to the heavyweight division. It will be really interesting to see him against the likes of Overeem and Dos Santos.

    Enough about the UFC, I have a heavy bag at home that I trained on for a while, and I am going to start again.

    Yeah, he's medically suspended indefinitely with that. I can't believe he didn't feel it straight away. He was doing cartwheels. Nobody does cartwheels on a broken toe. Then he saw it with his eyes, and you could see he went into shock.

    If Sonnen had managed to hold on till the end of the round, Jones would have been taken out of the fight for that injury and Sonnen would be new champ.

    I've been into MMA for quite some time now. I'm waiting for the GSP/A. Silva super fight to happen. I remember people from GSP's team saying something about it after GSP's recent fight, but they did say that Anderson has to beat Weidman first.

    In the post fight presser, Dana mentioned that Anderson Silva made a phonecall to him asking for a name. Silva either wants a St-Pierre or a Jones fight. Dana was a bit evasive about which one he asked for. 

    Silva vs. St-Pierre will be predictable and doesn't really get me excited. It'll probably go like the first Silva vs. Sonnen fight. St-Pierre will just take him down again and again and the fight will be all horizontal. He wont finish Silva. Either St-Pierre wins via takedowns/points or Silva will weather it, set up something from the bottom, and win by submission. I'd be surprised if it stays stand up for any significant length of time.

    Much rather see Silva vs. Jones. That'll be such an incredible display of mixed martial arts. An intelligent, creative, dynamic fight between two fighters with an almost superhuman talent and individual flair. I can't predict anything about that fight and that's why the idea of it is exciting to me.

    Like GSP and A. Silva, Jones has dominated his division, and I think there's nothing left for him at 205. The next move for him would probably be moving to the heavyweight division. It will be really interesting to see him against the likes of Overeem and Dos Santos.

    Well, he'll want at least one more fight at LHW to break Ortiz's record (5 title defences in a row). He's always talked about wanting that record. He matched it with this win. But he's also talked about wanting to move up to HW eventually. He's certainly got the frame for it. And he's got brutal stopping power and a viscous ground game. There is no reason why he can't dominate HW too.

    It depends on Dana though, ultimately. He's the boss. He's seeing the bigger picture, getting the sponsors, the venues, taking UFC and MMA to bigger and better places. He's kinda hard to predict at times. I think he'll want a few more LHW fights out of Jones.

    Y'know, I can easily imagine Jones holding the LHW and HW belts at the same time. Is there any reason why he'd have to lose his LHW belt if he moved up, provided he could still make weight and straddle fights between both divisions? I'm not sure how they work all that stuff out.

    Anderson should definitely fight Jones and GSP before he retires. So, do you think Weidman might beat Anderson?

    That would probably take a lot out of him physically. Jones walks around at 220 right now, so he could possibly go to 240-250 to fight in the HW division without a problem. Once he's there though, he's probably going to walk around at 240 or 250, then he'd have to lose 50 lbs to fight at LHW.

    Dunno tbh. I've not been following Weidman. I'd hardly even heard of him before this Silva fight. But I suppose he must be half decent if he's getting a title shot. Silva has faced wrestlers before though, and dealt with them. I can't see Weidman presenting anything new.

    Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit's..... TIME! for an MMA thread.

    Any fans here? I'm pretty sure there are few. Any favourite fighters? Any favourite fights? Any favourite styles? Any dream match-ups?


    I tend to like fighters who are not generic.  My main ones might be Joe Lauzon and Machida.  I like defensive techniques like sweeps from the bottom, bobs and weaves, and deflective blocks paired with counters.  Am I the only one who's really not into superfights?  It seems to me that the only one who's always in favour is the fighter in the higher weight class.  Unless the lower class fighter does it on a voluntary non pressured basis, it doesn't really appeal to me. 



    My only concern would be if I'm too old to start it though.

    Lots of people take martial arts classes since their little kids.

    By the time I graduate i'll be like around 22 years old. Is that too old to start ? 


    Nopes.  Not even close to being too old actually.


    I respect him as an athelete and for what he's done for the popularity of the sport, but he's never been the most exciting fighter. You know what you're gonna get with St-Pierre. It's gonna go the distance, it's gonna go to a decision, St-Pierre is gonna win it on takedowns/GnP.

    It was a fair win for St-Pierre on Saturday night though. Diaz was just flat and slow. Almost as though he wasn't interested. I wonder if he's been hit a few too many times, or just doesn't have the fire in his belly anymore. He wasn't the fighter we've seen in the past.

    The co-main event was an incredible fight though, Condit vs. Hendricks. Easily the best fight of the year so far. Completely stole the show from the main event. Great display of MMA from two fantastic fighters in their prime and a great show of sportsmanship too. Condit is always an exciting fighter to watch, great precision, speed, power and finesse with his Muay Tai. Hendricks, one of the best wrestlers out there, hits like a sledgehammer. Condit must have a chin of iron because he soaked up some bombs from Hendricks. Hendricks even damaged his hand.

    I'm not sure if I agree with the decision though. I think Condit did more impressive work than Hendricks. I don't think a takedown alone should score. It means that any reasonably competent wrestler can score easy points, for doing nothing more than changing the position of the fight. If it was a takedown and landing in a good offensive position and they did some more actual work once on the ground, sure, it should be a point. But a takedown alone? It's not a wrestling match. Some fighters excel on the ground. They shouldn't lose out to points just for being moved to the ground a few times. Oh well. Thems the rules I guess.


    I think gsp lost more than his belt after the first serra fight.  He's a different fighter now with financial aspirations and a severe risk aversion.  In order for him to become exciting again he'll either need to hit a mental switch, or face opponents with a weaker bottom game.

    Anyone here taking any MMA classes ? or planning on taking some ?

    Dunno, but I'd really like to see Silva vs. Jones. Probably more than any other fight I can think of. About the same as I'd like to see Ali vs. Tyson. I think it would be amongst the best fights in the history of fights.
