Pride 33 Picks Contest!
- 02-22-2007, 12:37 AM
BTW, M & M might start having relatively more MMA focus than it does now if I have my way. There's talk of bringing in members of a well-known MMA family for different things, etc.
I have very little to do with M & M because AL operates completely independently from M & M now (even though they are both under the same corp) but I'm discussing some interesting things with other companies and people that could happen in the not to distant future.

Why are people picking Diaz over Gomi? Nick has a bad attitude and he'll try to stand with Gomi and it's going to cost him.
So is anyone else going to be at the actual event?

Have you ever been there, Alex? It's a great place. A nice variety is there.
If you want to shoot the sh*t and goof around, you can do that. And of course, if you want hardcore science on just about any subject but especially supplements, physiology, etc., the place is legendary for that.

M & M is long on supplement and general smarts, not so much on MMA talk.
Rodja and Ersatz has been seen over there, other than that, the Brainacs are over here, not there.
SS hangs over here, causes that forum is a chirping cricket field of SS often talking to himself, his posts hang unresponded to for days.
And SS, if it's the Gracies or Shamrock families you speak of, count me out, I'm a vehement antinuthugger of those two clans, and that ain't sarcasm.

Plus I'm just generally a contrarian by nature.
I have an invite to the event, I might go, but I've heard that it's much better to watch on a monitor, visibilities generally suck, that's the word on the UFC, anyway.

Diaz has fought some decent strikers in terms of power but they weren't very technical like gomi is. And none of them seem to work the body as much as Gomi. Diaz is a small guy for 170 so at 160 he might be emaciated. And his takedowns aren't that spectacular either. It has the potential to be a great fight though.

Guess I am the only one taking Overeem and Danzig? I think the shorter rounds will help Overeem and I have a feeling about Danzig for some reason.

Shogun's seemed to prefer the ground since his return. I'll stick with Shogun, though, cause Allistar has not looked good either as of late.
What's the most likely upset of the night? (I consider Misaki-Trigg about even so let's ignore this one unless you really want to discuss)
I don't know what I'd say? Maybe Diaz.

I think everyone Size or myself picked with the exception of maybe Misaki-Trigg, no idea who's favored there.
