Beowulf, you must be on an MMA high. I remember when I first got into MMA being so excited awaiting every new tape or dvd. Like friggin christmas, I'm jealous you have so much good sh*t to watch. If you can try to check out IVC, and Meca, its real deal vale tudo, and there are some great fighters in these events. You'll soon find out about all types of smaller events that have taken place over the years with many great fights. World Extreme Fighting has a couple excellent card with 10-15 fights for each event(7-10 are really good). You seem to like MMA for all the right reasons unlike a lot of new fans that have become fans off TUF, and talk out there asses.

He and his trainer made a lot of poor decisions, and he has the intellect of a child right now. These connections turned me off of fighting when I was still younger. I'm glad to see the caliber of refs, and I'd rather they err on the side of caution and end it prematurely than let someone have permanent damage.
I think it was a Crocop highlight that Beelz posted a while back that left me in awe. The skill and athleticism these guys display is inspiring. Since then I've been watching highlights and reading the analysis you guys post. The highlights are attention getting, but nothing compared to the long haul of the actual fight.
MMA is definitely a fascinating sport. I'm looking forward to learning more.

gsp is the future of mma: athletic, well-rounded, disciplined and a huge heart. he has begged the ufc to rematch him with matt hughes for the welterweight title and he got it. one of the most entertaining true martial artists in the biz, impressive jiu-jitsu ground game, amazing standup using karate and muay thai. check out his teammate david loiseau if you haven't heard of him, same style, both from montreal, canada. st-pierre will be taking the belt from hughes within the next 6 months. mark my words.Originally Posted by size

Damn, I just watched Fedor vs. Randleman. I had seen that slam in clips many times, but it does not cease to amaze. Fedor is lucky that he retained consciousness, nevermind escaping a broken neck.
The show of sportsmanship was especially impressive. Randleman picked Fedor up and carried him around the ring. That is class!
BTW, Jackson was commentating. Funny as hell! When asked for his advice for Heath Herring against Nog, he said he should get some bigger trunks so they stop creeping up his ass

Fedor is not human. He has not lost a fight in over 5 years. The only fight he ever "lost" was a stoppage due to a freak cut.
He is amazing.

Nice elbows and a solid striker. He was picked apart by Rich Franklin though.Originally Posted by Wandy

I really thought that was going to be a much better fight than it was. I knew Franklin was good, but that was when I realize how good he really is.Originally Posted by size

His repsonse was classic Rampage (his response was obvious, but the delivery and tension that Baas showed after slipping up was great).

Lets keep it real, he is undefeated. A cut from an illegal elbow is not a Loss in any book.Originally Posted by size

true. then again, i saw that one coming as soon as they announced it, even though the crow is easily top 5, arguably top 3 in the division. franklin picks apart everyone.Originally Posted by size
