Default Official MMA thread

Since we have official threads for other non-football sports, I figured we need one for MMA.


Free WEC championships on Versus and UFC live for Deutschland this Saturday.

MMA was cool for 3 weeks in the 90s.

It's great that so many douchebag tools made their moronic opinions heard in a thread that they obviously have no interest in. Thanks guys.

Actually, I do have interest in expressing how lame I think MMA is. That's why I posted.

Thanks for proving that MMA fans can refrain from verbal roid rage at the slightest provocation. /sarcasm

That kick was probably the sweetest move I've seen anybody pull off in MMA. Like a sweet transition into an arm bar it was fun to watch. And the best part about it, it wasn't against a "chump", Ben Henderson is probably one of the top 3 or 4 fighters in the deepest weight class... and that kick won the fight for him. Surprised that Henderson was even able to recover after that, he was out for a second there.

I watched that the other night, Brandon's nose was just nasty. Bad enough that he covered his face probably so he didn't freak his family out.

Later in the night Gray Maynard was robbed of the title vs Frankie Edgar. Levigne could have reasonably stopped that fight in the first. Easily should have been a 10-8 round and possibly even a 10-7 round. Weak sauce calling it a draw.

Not sure who here actually follows MMA and not just UFC, but I finally watched my recording of Dynamite! from New Years. Interesting card all around, but the main thing would have to be Aoki's fight.

First round was K-1 (kickboxing) rules and the second round was MMA rules. Aoki ran away from any actual fighting in the first round (as well he should have) and was able to bring the one dimensional kickboxer to the second round. You can watch for yourself how that goes for him...

would the kickboxer still be the one dimensional one if round one was grappling and round two was kick boxing?

I'm not fully sure what you mean, but I'll blindly answer anyway

Aoki is rather one dimensional too, he only has one TKO stoppage with the rest being submissions. I didn't mean to suggest the kickboxer was the only one who was one dimensional. In the K-1 round Aoki was one dimensional, in the MMA round Nagashima was one dimensional. It kinda was the whole point, to see who was less one dimensional at the other's rules.

The results clearly show that Aoki is more one dimensional than Nagashima. However I'd argue that Aoki's takedowns, submissions, body control, takedown defense and submission defense all outweigh Nagashima's punching, kicking and kneeing in terms of all around fighting.

I showed this to everyone because this is as significant as if James Toney had managed to KO Randy Couture when they fought. It's a very surprising result.

Anderson Silva Front Kick Knockout




Nice kick...unfortunately... I wanted Vitor to win. Although it might set up the Silva/GSP Super fight. As a GSP fan I don't know how he will do at a higher weight

Silva/GSP fight should be extremely entertaining. That kick last night from Silva was great tactical move
