Greg Jackson is know to this "legal but dirty" crap. The baby oil trick, foot stomps, wrench the arms to pop the shoulder, how to target the head with an elbow to break and orbital, how to effectively cut your opponent to get a stoppage.

Big Jon is the only ref that warns fighters not to do it.



Big John is the ******* man smokin.gif. Awesome ref, easily my favorite. He blew out his knee in the Werdum vs Browne bout, hope he heals up quick the MMA world needs him!

And supposedly Roy Nelson v Mark Hunt is in the works. Hope everything is finalized soon.

A few matches in the works:

 

McGregor v Cole Miller set to headline the Ireland card on July 19th. McGregor is talking reckless saying he's going to destroy the division including Jose. Basically took a dump on Cole Miller's name on national television. Called Cub an old man and when they were seated next to each other at an event started saying he was going to break his hip. Yikes :lol

 

Cerrone is trying to fight Khabib but Micheal Johnson is trying to get in on the action as well.

post #2494 of 41029
mcgregor talks too much. I want to see dude get knocked out. His threesome comment about Tate and rousey was kinda funny though.

Has anyone been following TUF Brazil? Chael, as per the previous season he was in, comes off as an awesome coach and Silva a total jerk.

Only a fact. I'm dealing in reality, not fantasy.

Spider has embarrassed several LHWs. Any as good as Jones? Of course not. But Spider hasn't exactly struggled with anyone in that weight class either.

Carry on.


What I'm saying is that your comparison is off-base, you comparing Silva beating Forrest as a factor in fighting Jones is like comparing apples to oranges.


Forrest and Jones are not comparable. And saying he hasn't exactly struggled with anyone in that weight class when those guys are Irvin, Bonnar and Forrest, it's like c'mon....

It wasn't like he was taking on the divisions best aside from Griffin.

Dude, your reading comprehension needs serious help. You're seeing what you want to see and not what's actually in front of you.

I made no such comparison. I stated a fact and left it at that. You want to make it out to be more than it is.

What's even more comical is that you just used Griffin and "divisions best" in the same sentence. And Anderson embarrassed him. That's all it is.

Keep spinning your wheels though about the fight that will never happen laugh.gif

Back to reality.....this season of TUF, like most, has been disappointing. BJ and Frankie respect each other too much. BJ isn't talking any smack AT ALL.

Some of his commentary during the first fights was amusing. When one dude went for a single leg takedown, BJ saying "Does that even work anymore?" had me laugh.gif

When Chael isn't playing a heel and talking trash, he does seem like good dude.

BJ was constant lulz in the first Tuff, he is way to chill now. He does be dropping some gems now and then though
post #2501 of 41029
With Jim Miller vs. Cerrone now set, I would like to see Masvidal vs. Michael Johnson.

Just thought I'd share.

Lol, they knew better than to put Cowboy up against Khabib. They did the smart thing by protecting Cowboy by giving him a much easier opponent in terms of stylistic matchups in Miller. Cowboy should have his way like Diaz and Benson did with Miller. And I do like Miller. tbh I think Cowboy and Miller are both guys who are exceptional just not champion material.

post #2503 of 41029
While that fight may not have been good for Cowboy, I think it would have potentially been good for Khabib.

He needs to start getting in there with some opponents that have some marquee value.
post #2504 of 41029
Interested to see what the UFC does with Khabib now. Grant?

Dana said that Nate Diaz said he's ready to fight again so maybe they make Diaz v Khabib.

Glover rocking shades so he doesn't get poked again.

 

 

 

 

Check this single leg defense....

 

 

post #2507 of 41029
How about Grant vs. Nate Diaz and if Grant wins, he gets next title shot... or Khabib vs Josh Thompson for #1 Contender?

Son gambled with that backflip. Could have landed straight in a sharpshooter mean.gif

I like both of those but Josh cornered Khabib recently. They're both AKA affiliates so i don't know how quick they would be to fight unless the strap was on the line.

155 is a cluster **** at the moment with Pettis sidelined and Melendez shelved. The UFC is going to have their hands full keeping people active with match ups that actually make sense.

That being said in the current environment your man Cerrone is going to make bank this year. He's gonna mop everyone up outside of the top 6-7. Jim Miller is solid as **** but i see another stoppage win for Cerrone.

Nate Diaz was get clinched for 15 minutes by Khabib. It'll be Ben Henderson all over. I would love to see Khabib's chin get tested though

Champ on that Friday night mindset laugh.gif

Arianny, tho....

I don't want to see Nate fight Khabib. Khabib will grind him out for three rounds in a snoozefest.

^^I thought I was in the wrong thread hahaha.

Sometimes I wish the top fighters in every weightclass, especially the champs, would adopt the Cerrone mentality. 3 fights already for the 1st half of 2014. Although I know he needs it for the money.
post #2515 of 41029
Lol meisha Tate saying Gina carano could come back this yr if she makes 135 that would help woman's comp in the ufc if they also got holly holm
post #2516 of 41029

If Carano comes back it'll be to fight Rousey. If/when she loses, she'll be gone again. If UFC wanted to help the women's competition, go and sign Cyborg and Holm. Stop making all of these excuses for why they won't go after Cyborg and stop trying to lowball Holm with that $15k deal. 

 

Glover has a torn labrum and will get surgery. He's gonna be out for a while then. Cain had the same injury and surgery late last year and he still hasn't been cleared to fight or even use his left hand.

tbh with the manner in which Glover lost, I actually pretty much wrote his retirement. I mean, he's never going to beat Jones. The fight proved it imo. Dude is already older I don't see where he goes from here. He's not going to make another run. This injury pretty much ends any chances in my eyes

Who is the one in the middle? Mercedes rolls with a nice crew.

Her and Jade Bryce look damn good and are a close second to Arianny and Brittney. All their playboy pics are appreciated. Mercedes needs to join the club.

Josh Thomson's twitter was hacked:

 

''I knocked out your brother, I'll knock ur ***** *** out in San Jose July 26th.Let's do it *****, San Jose vs Stockon. Yup, **** U NICK DIAZ!''

 

Josh Thomson@THEREALPUNK 2h

People that know me, know I wouldn't ever talk about a fighter like this. My phone was stolen last night while at dinner.

 

Josh Thomson@THEREALPUNK 2h

Khabib's wasn't:
