Don't think we see Browne/Reem 2 anytime soon since Reem is gonna start training with Jackson/Winklejohn. Training there is gonna help Reem but Browne can learn a lot from him.

Phil Davis trying to play the "talk trash to the champ" card to make sure he gets a title shot. Jones' "that's not nice" had me laughing though.

 

Also, Reem is going to Jackson's? Random. Every camp he's been in has rejected him lol

Jesus, Dana had the balls to say that 172 was the most stacked card in UFC history on his new vlog. The hyperbole train is running off the rails...

Dana :{:lol you guys gotta stop taking what he says to heart though

post #2286 of 40970

I don't even pay attention to the crap that Dana says anymore. But thinking about stacked cards, why can't they cut back on ppvs and actually have stacked cards like UFC 100? It had Lesnar/Mir, GSP/Alves, Hendo/Bisping and the prelims had Jon Jones, Jim Miller, TJ Grant, Stun Gun, etc. 

 

They can have a stacked card, then have 2 top 10 fighters main event the prelim with a bunch of rising stars.

As long as there's money to be made it will continue man. Can you blame them for striking while the iron is hot? They have the Fox deal they are milking it for all it's worth. I do not blame them. I hate these watered down cards but at the same time they are looking at the $$$$ and in the end that's their decision. Can't really argue with them for wanting money. They are still putting on the fights we want to see at the same time..

The "hot hands all on your forehead" line was amusing as well.

UFC 175 will be stacked. Lets hope they continue to put solid fights together.

Machida vs. Weidman Title Fight
Rousey vs. Davis Title Fight
Sonnen vs. Wanderlei
Cormier vs. Hendo
Uriah Hall vs Thiago Santos

it's pretty cool to see a guy i know, Andre Fili, make it to the UFC and now get onto a main card.  Hoping he does well this weekend

I have been and most likely will always be a Jon Jones fan.. I'm pulling for him this weekend. I really hope that this big-headed cockiness is only temporary. I know that he's confident, but I remember before one of his old fights he had stopped a robbery that was taking place right after his meditation. It really made me think that he was a humble dude who meditated to clear his mind and concentrate on winning. He doesn't even come off as a dude who meditates anymore, comes off as just another MMA meat head that hits pads and talks crap about how good he is. He lost to Gustafsson for sure, got lucky.. I really hope that that was a wake up call.

Jones is just a different type dude. I don't think he's going to change anytime soon. Win or lose he'll keep the same oddball personality. I don't have a problem with him really but at the same time I don't really like him either. As a fighter, he is probably my favorite fighter if not then Pettis.

post #2293 of 40970
Kinda weird to analyze someone's personality based on if you think they don't meditate anymore.

Was never a fan of his but his fights are entertaining. Seems like fans are split on liking him or not. Looking back, it was cool how popular Chuck and Randy were.

Meditation isn't something you do to impress anyone. It isn't a highlight interesting thing that people will think you're badass for doing. It's something that he did for himself to relax his mind before going to war. For a fighter to meditate close to the fight, in my book, shows a level of maturity and sense of humbleness.

If anyone else has done martial arts here, they'll know there' s a huge difference between the people who angrily hit pads and simply use brute strength during training, and the people who throw a right leg kick 500 times in one night just to learn how to throw it properly. I like a humble, intellectual fighter over a brutal meat head any day.

That's fine I just don't know how you came to the conclusion that Jones is just another MMA meathead

His overall attitude has changed. He's talking crap to other fighters, underestimating his opponents and not taking training serious because of it. I saw it in the Gustafsson fight.

Like I said, I've always been a fan and it'll probably stay that way, but I just hope he isn't losing the humbleness that made me a fan in the first place.

As soon as he became champ the hate started accumulating fast.

I think he's keeping it together pretty well considering the amount of **** that gets slung his way.

I like Jones more now he doesn't seem as fake and forced

Seems like he's being himself now

Plus he's got a bad *** Raptor
post #2300 of 40970
Diego meditates and acts like a fool all the time. Can't assume anything with these fighters. If a fighter does a yes cartwheel then he's alright in my book.

I think his whole attitude changed after TUF. He used to be stone faced all the time and wouldn't say anything negative or even crack a joke about his opponent and claim "I'm focused" when it looked like he was pretend. Either way I like his new attitude also and I hope it doesn't all go to his head and lose his belt in wack fashion.

Dan's only chance is an early H-Bomb, if not....

DC gonna swag all over Hendo. Shogun was tooling Dan until he made the mistake and dropped his hands.
post #2303 of 40970
Jake Shields was able to take Hendo down at will. DC will beat him easily.
post #2304 of 40970
DC will manhandle Hendo, it is going to be tough to watch. mean.gif

As for Jones, dude is easily the most talented fighter in the organization. Still it seems like too much of Greg Jackson's schtick is rubbing off on him. One minute he is a contemplative martial artist, the next he is a mildly arrogant kid, dismissive of any other fighter in the world. He needs to pick one attitude and run with it, or just be himself. A 26 year old kid living that damn dream and kicking anyone's *** that they throw in front of him...

And he beat Gustaffson, there is little question about that. Hell of a fight, but Jones clearly won.

He's going to get destroyed by anyone even a little worth while

post #2307 of 40970
Arlovski hasn't looked good in years. I'm a fan of his but Fedor took his soul when he landed that punch.
post #2308 of 40970
Agreed with both statements. Kinda cool for a little nostalgia but that's it.

Andrei gonna get touched on that glass jaw of his and go to sleep.

 

He was one of my favorite fighters years ago too. :lol

post #2310 of 40970
Andrei v. Schaub in the works? Battle of the glass chins.

Cool to see him back, but the UFC must be hurting for big guys BAD at this point to bring him back into the fold.
