Floyd kills Ronda in a boxing match. And I mean literally, he takes her life

Floyd kills Ronda standing in MMA

Ronda Breaks Floyd's arm on the ground.

If Ronda/Floyd ever happened, both would obviously defend against the others' strength. I doubt Ronda would even bother standing with Floyd in an MMA fight. Literally, would start on the ground like she said in the interview. People say that Ronda has taken some clean punches in her last fights, which is true, but obviously she felt that she could eat those punches because those women were not a threat to KO her. She wouldn't approach Floyd in that manner at all. She'd do everything possible to avoid boxing.

 

Floyd on the other hand would be in allusive mode in an MMA fight, as to not end up clinched or on the ground. Not sure how it'd be fair to ask him to compete in an MMA fight since he doesn't train in other techniques.

 

Like I said before, in a street fight for survival, I'd honestly like to see it. I'd also like to see walking around weight comparison picture between Floyd and Ronda. If Ronda isn't much smaller than Floyd, I'd give her a decent chance in a street fight, no weapons.

What really happens behind the scenes at the #ufc #ufclondon @danawhite  

I know he posted this as a joke but seriously this is what I think really happens behind the scenes. Dana is basically the face and mouth of UFC, while Lorenzo does all of the real work trying to close deals and Joe Silva does the matchmaking. 

 

Regarding Jimi/Gus, I see Jimi trying to destroy Gus' legs with his kicks in the first. Then Gus is gonna wrestle and jab him the rest of the way for a decision or submission.

I think that's obvious though. Dana has his role and Joe and Lorenzo have their roles. I'm sure Dana does his fair share of "real work" too. He and Lorenzo have their fingerprints on everything, they've always done things their way and done most of everything themselves.

post #1745 of 41107
Lorenzo always seems very professional and normal. Nice contrast to dana who acts like an idiot.

Gunnar, just played with him

post #1747 of 41107
Dammit I had Manuwa winning the upset today. Gus looked impressive though
post #1748 of 41107
That was almost too easy.
post #1749 of 41107
I actually thought Gus would go down when I saw Manuwa during the 1st round. Good for Gus, he will surely get that title shot next.
post #1750 of 41107
was it a good fight, worth the watch?
post #1751 of 41107
Everything went as expected but one thing i did learn is that Gunnar is a serious ******* problem.

Super technical in all areas and stylistically i think dude is gonna cause some issues in the top 10.

Plus my man McGregor is going to benefit tremendously by working with him smokin.gif
post #1752 of 41107
Gunnar Nelson's been on my radar. His fight with Jorge Santiago presented minor red flags. Sloppy striking in R3 with susceptible boxing defense. Omari Akhmedov is no joke, he'll be back with that elite sambo.

diego wearing a singlet and practicing with the high school team, can't make this stuff up.

Anyone catch TUF Brazil on fight pass yesterday? Any worthwhile incidents between Sonnen and Silva?

post #1756 of 41107
How many of you got the Fight Pass? Isn't worth it to me if ppv's aren't included.
post #1757 of 41107

Fight Pass isn't worth it to me. And it kinda seems like most of the people that got Fight Pass are reporters that need it to cover all UFC events. 

post #1758 of 41107
I used it for the free 7 days. I didn't renew it.
post #1759 of 41107
I had Fight Pass since it was released and cancelled right before the paywall went up.

No real reason to shell out cash for it right now.

I won't be getting up at odd hours to watch International fights and I'm sure as hell not throwing down $10 a month to watch TUF Brazil.

I am hoping Lawler will win this coming weekend. But when I think about every aspect of MMA (striking, TDD, wrestling, grappling etc), I only see the diversity in his striking as his only advantage over hendricks. I don't like hendricks that much but I think he has a higher chance of winning (he also has a higher chance of whining). Anything can happen though. But I hope he will wrap his hands better and do more than 70% hahaha.

What do you think guys?

Just watching Hendricks defeat pretty much every contender and arguably GSP, I just don't think he will go down to lawler. Hendricks as faced the top level of every type of fighter too.
post #1762 of 41107
Hendricks wins his belt back on Saturday, book it. smokin.giflaugh.gif


His wrestling is the trump card, he could ragdoll Lawler for five rounds if he wanted.

^^^ Werdum didn't even finishing locking it all the all up too eek.giflaugh.gif
post #1765 of 41107
post #1766 of 41107

^ Werdum is so dangerous on the mat. If he continues to improve his striking he could definitely challenge Cain.

 

And Hendricks not making weight his first try is a little surprising. For one its a title shot so his weight should be on point and two, he's working with Dolce.

 

After today, I'm starting to think that we will never see Cyborg vs Rousey. Talking with reporters, Rousey said that she would love to fight Carano and would have no problem giving her an immediate title shot. She even said that she would fight Carano at a catchweight. She always resisted fighting Cyborg at a catchweight but would Carano? It just makes her look scared in my opinion.

Johnny looks drained as hell. Shaking and everything.

Can't wait to see Jake Shields get KO'd by Hector Lombard
post #1770 of 41107
That gif of Johnny though... Son looked crushed mean.gif

Gastelum came in at 172lbs and my man Shields looked like a straight walker...

Some brutal weight cuts for this event it seems. Hopefully it doesn't effect the outcome of the fights too much.

On the flip side Diego looked great. I'm expecting another nightmare performance devil.gif
