Haven't been on this thread in a while, man hammer house vs chute was unreal at the time again people were talking about ufc not doing tournament style, that's all bellator does. The DC vs jones brawl even if it was "staged" it sure looked it that's way.... I was dying on sheed of ppl were making comparisons for the DC/jones brawl and the Paul Daley cheap shot ppl actually saying this situation was worse haha

Bellator does not do Pride style tournaments. Pride had the entire tournament done in one night for the most part. Fighters had to fight multiple times in one day and it was EPIC especially the open weight grand prix.

Weren't some tournaments spread over 2 events? I need to start buying up the Pride tournament dvds, they used to sell a few at bestbuy years ago. Need the lhw tournament one with Liddell.

Crocop taking wand's soul at the owgp was one of the worst beatdowns i've ever seen.

Grand Prix were usually over 3 events. The semi and final usually being on the same night

Hendo and Gomi's were different, quarter and semi were the same night, then final was by itself

Today's media event was hilarious.. Conor saying plainly he gonna KO Diamond in round one and place his nose across his face

 

Jon Jones told DC he gonna make him his wife :lol

 

Jon Jones' voice was just strange

Is the NSAC in need of money?

 

1st they're trying to block Chael from doing Metamoris and if he does participate they're gonna fine him over $1M. The NSAC never regulated Metamoris before but now all of a sudden they're trying to force him out last minute or make him pay that huge fine.

 

Now they're going after Wandy. They want him to pay court fees, attorney fees, investigative costs, and any other fees or punishment the commission thinks its right. Normally that would be ok but Wand wasn't even a licensed fighter in Nevada so he wasn't subject to their rules. So they're trying to call him an "unarmed combatant".

 

I can't wait to see the fine that Jones and DC are gonna get from their brawl. Probably gonna take 10% of each fighter's purse.

Was Jones drunk in that Q&A?

PRIDE has never had a tournament done in one night, unless they had some four man tournament that I'm not remembering. The max times a fighter ever had to fight in one night in PRIDE was 2 times.

that's why i inserted for the most part because most of the good stuff of the tournaments were done in the same night.

 

 

and yes, there were fighters who fought more than 2 times in 1 day - For example Mark Coleman fought 3 times in 2000 grand prix which was over one event.

Gunnar Nelson v Rick Story set for the main event in Sweden on October 4th. Glad that he didn't get fast tracked to Rory, there's no use in wasting contenders like that. Build him up man. Thought it was too quick to suggest a Rory match.

 

Other fights on the card:

 

UFC officials announced the welterweight bout on Thursday. UFC Fight Night Sweden takes place on Oct. 4 and includes a welterweight matchup pitting Amir Sadollah against Nicholas Musoke as well as a light heavyweight clash between Ilir Latifi and Jan Blachowicz. The entirety of the card airs on Fight Pass.

 

Also, Goldberg gonna call two NFL games this year :lol

 

As of now, Goldberg is set for action on Oct. 19, when the Minnesota Vikings take on the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard, N.Y.

Guess they're not looking at Cub vs Frankie at that event anymore.

Goldberg is really moving on up. I remember a few years ago he was close to leaving UFC to go announce for WWF. But shocked that they didn't have him call a Colts or Patriots game on Fox so they could fit a Jon Jones and UFC reference in there.

The Frankie/Cub fight somehow isn't official yet :{ just get it done guys

post #3832 of 40970

From what I read yesterday, Cub wasn't really into the fight. He wanted a title shot next, but recently he came around to the idea of fighting Frankie since Aldo/Mendes got postponed. They were targeting October (Sweden), November, or December. 

 

Personally I like the idea of them main eventing or co main eventing the next Fox card in December.

Ariel said Cub's train of thought was that the UFC promised him a title shot after the Stephens win.. but with the injury to Aldo, Cub was open to a fight with Frankie. There is no other route right now for either Cub nor Frankie. It needs to happen plain and simple. It will probably end up happening on another card.

Wonder how many dumb things goldberg will say on the nfl broadcasts.

Me too, lol. Apparently the article said he's called Arizona Cardinals' games before as well as NHL games.

I haven't liked jones since day 1. Sometimes you just aren't fans of certain fighters.
I couldn't align with the anti-Brasilian disrespect Chael showed.

I prefer a smooth character like Bendo, or even Rory Mac's cold-blooded demeanor.

What will Gunnar Nelson and Demian Maia have in common after October 4th?

Nico's one of my underrated fighters, thoroughly enjoy watching his BJJ on display.

I don't necessarily have a preference, I just appreciate a wide-array of characters. From the soft spoken, humble dudes to the brash **** talkers. I wouldn't like it if everyone were one way or the other

What?

 

Speaking of Maia he's out of UFN 49 with a injury. So Jordan Mein will fight Mike Pyle.

 

Anyone following the Josh Grispi incident? He was arrested twice in 4 days for assaulting his wife. In addition to attacking his wife, he supposedly trained hit pit bull Buddy to attack her. Cops are saying its the worst case of domestic abuse they've ever seen. Even the texts he sent to his wife that were released in court records are insane. No wonder Dana was quick to correct Sports Illustrated and say that Grispi isn't a current UFC fighter and hasn't been in the organization for over 18 months.
