I think Aldo said it best about P4P...

Basically said Cain is the biggest champion so he'd kick everybody's *** laugh.gif

Lawler looked tremendous. Would love to see him fight Nick for a title shot smokin.gif

Hector Lombard doesn't hold back, like ever. No chill button :lol

 

*Thoughts on Matt Brown and being disappointed in not being booked against him


"I'm mostly disappointed about how much hype Matt Brown has. I mean, he's been fighting guys that, he never fought a top 10 guy. That's one. And who is Erick Silva? I mean like, that's ridiculous."

"I would like to fight this guy one day, and I'll prove a point."

"He has to go and fight a top ten guy and go from there, because when you fight a guy like Erick Silva anybody can look good. I'd beat Erick Silva even better, even easier."


*Thoughts on all the hype on Matt Brown getting a title shot an nobody talking about him getting one


"You know it's something that is out of my control. But once again, I believe Matt Brown doesn't deserve none of that. I believe Matt Brown is just an average fighter. And, you know like, even Kim (Dong Hyun) for example. Kim beat Matt Brown and he's behind. Actually Kim beat Matt Brown and he beat Erick Silva. He knocked him out, in Brazil, in his home town. So Kim is four times better than Matt Brown and four times better than Erick Silva and he is behind on the table, like when you're on the ranks. He's behind Matt Brown, when he beat Matt Brown. How's this guy supposed to feel? How am I supposed to feel when I beat two former Strikeforce champs. It doesn't make sense."

"He never beat any Strikeforce champions, he never beat any top 10 guys and he has all the hype. That's (not) very understandable. I don't understand that at all."

 

*On Matt Brown's long win streak


"If you fight all those fighters that he fought, I would have that record as well."

If "Immortal" decided to trade, I sincerely believe Lombard would KO him.

Can't wait for Bendo's test against Khabilov.

I definitely think Lawler would KO Brown if they fought. Lawler looks so damn good right now

If it can't be my guy "NBK" holding the strap, might as well be Robbie. Just don't like Hendricks or Brown.

Brown was getting hurt against Silva. Not just once either. Imagine Lawler getting inside :x

EA SPORTS UFC Hands-on Impressions

 

EA said that the UFC series won't be an annual title. They're aiming for a 18-22 month cycle for each game.

 

EA also promised that there will be free roster updates for fighters not currently in the game (like TJ Dillashaw) in addition to DLC fighters and that they will be providing updates for the game on a consistent basis.

Thoughts/predictions on Bendo vs. Khabilov?

Bendo's new walkout shirt is too fresh. "Always Smooth." "Once and Future King."

"Ruthless" Robbie. Feel-good comeback story extending past 2013. No fluke. You think he beat Johny?

Ellenberger is headed down the wrong path. Afraid to throw against Rory and finished by Robbie. IDK if his power is as feared anymore.

Barao clearly never recovered from the massive shot in R1, looping right. Hard to throw kicks when you're constantly backed up with pressure.

Dillashaw was looking for that wide-left head kick all night. As was Barao with the spinning back kick.

I don't expect T.J. to hold the 135 belt very long. I'd favor Barao in a rematch.

Hell of a fight from TJ though.  

 

The minute I saw Henderson weighed in at 199 I knew it was a wrap for him. :{0]

D.C. has lost one round in his 15 MMA fights. On one judge's scorecard to Barnett.

Yeah, Jon Jones like dominance on the cards.

 

I never count out Hendo anymore... Not after what he did to my dude Fedor but good lord DC made him look like a middleweight in there.

post #2744 of 41029
"Bones" gets sensitive about Gus. We need a rematch. I would be thoroughly impressed if Jones does what he did to Glover, to Gustafsson.

Very sore subject. Jones looked visibly uncomfortable when the topic of Gus was brought up by two or three members of media. Ariel Helwani backed off quickly when "Bones" adamantly resisted answering.

I'm speculating here. Gus could be the one guy that haunts Jones. He was able to inflect damage and pain on "Bones." Took Jones out of his usual comfort and rhythm. Normally cruise control with natural talent and athleticism.

Not to thread-jack like I have in the past with ring girls, but this is I deem necessary.

EA SPORTS UFC - Strategic Submission Battles

 

RouseyVsTate_Header_656x369.jpg?cb=2014-05-26T20:50:21+0000

 

Brian Hayes, the creative director of EA SPORTS UFC shares his thoughts on the game's submission system.

 

In June of 2012, EA SPORTS and the UFC announced a new licensing partnership. That same month, the development team at EA Canada enlisted the services of MMA trainer and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, Adam Ryan, to come show us the art of BJJ first hand. Some people were complete novices, others had already been training for years. Everybody loved it. Maybe not as much the morning after…

 

For the past two years now, there has been a dedicated group of designers, animators and programmers rolling together twice a week under Adam's tutelage. 

ea-sports-ufc-submissions-01.jpg

One of the first things I learned about jiu-jitsu is that you can do it with your eyes closed. Rolling with one of my more experienced teammates, I noticed the relaxed expression on his face and closed eyes. When your opponent is in your closed guard and you have wrist control, there really isn't much information your eyes provide.

 

Grappling is much more about feeling where your opponent is, rather than seeing where they are. That encapsulates the challenge everyone who has tried developing the submission system for a video game has faced. Ever. How to recreate an experience that's all about feel, when the only information you can give the player is visual?

 

ea-sports-ufc-submissions-02.jpg

We wanted to showcase the fact that trying to submit someone is a constant struggle and that, very often, not as easy as the press of a button. Additionally, when Coach Adam would show the team how to properly set up and apply various submission holds, we noticed there were always technical details about how to grab your own arm, where to place your feet, or how to keep your weight on your opponent because failing to do so could give them a doorway to escape.

 

There is always some way the defensive fighter can try to move or shift that will relieve the pressure of a joint lock or a choke. That is, until there is no place to move and the fight is over. It's the offensive fighter's job to shut the defender down and look for their openings to tighten the submission to the point where their opponent has no choice but to tap.

 

ea-sports-ufc-submissions-03.jpg

 

These are the observations that led us to create the Submission Game for EA SPORTS UFC

 

The idea of progression vs. resistance played a big role in how we approached the HUD for our in-game Strategic Submission Battles.

 

 

 

The HUD consists of four gates that surround the fighters on screen. A blue Right Stick icon will appear in each of these gates informing the defending fighter that they can move their right stick in any direction. If the defending fighter can push one of these Right Stick icons all the way to the outside of the submission HUD, they’ll escape the submission.

 

Resistance comes into play when the attacking fighter looks to block the escape. As the defending fighter attempts to move their Right Stick icon to the to the outside of the HUD, the icon will turn red letting the attacker know they need to resist the escape by moving their own Right Stick in the same direction. When the attacking fighter does so, the defender cannot escape in that direction and has to try another.

 

ea-sports-ufc-submissions-04.jpg

 

Progression comes into play when after an escape is blocked for a period of time, the attacking fighter will see a Left Stick icon appear over one of the gates. Flicking the Left Stick in that direction will allow the submission to progress to the next stage and force the defending fighter to restart their escape from scratch. Flicking the Left Stick too late or in the wrong direction will make it easier for the defending fighter to escape.

 

A fighter’s submission rating and stamina during a fight dictate how difficult it will be to escape or lock in the submission.

 

ea-sports-ufc-submissions-05.jpg

 

Progress to through all the stages to complete the submission and force the tapout.

******* barnburner!

Brown's Achilles heel seems to be subs.

He holds up well against strikers, though I can't recall him fighting anyone as good a Lawler.

Fight has all the potential in the world, hope it delivers.

Still haven't seen this weekend's card. Was on a bender since Friday. Hope to watch tonight.

Why they gotta show my bae Meisha getting armbarred?

jones sounds like a baby refusing to answer questions about Gus. It was a tough challenge but he still won.
post #2758 of 41029
That's a sweet fight for Lawler.

Ellenberger and Hendricks barely rocked Robbie and they have A+ power for the division.

Brown gonna have to make it super dirty against the fence and in the clinch to stand a chance imo.
