The UFC's cage used be much less padded on the floor in the earlier days, but too many people were getting KOed on takedowns which people thought ruined fights like Tanner-Tito,

Frye has lost his mind. In a recent interview he said he's feeling good and that he wants to fight Fedor. Oleg is gonna kneebar his ass.

Yeah, old man Frye, who just got KO'd by Dog The Bounty Hunter's bodyguard. Granted Frye was tanked, but it was still pretty embarassing. Didn't the chinless JT just KO him not too long ago as well. Frye is a great guy, but he should just hang em up after this fight with Taktarov.

Did we forget about his impressive victories in between? Um, Akebono, Warpath (ok a draw),....

That's almost as good. Pat Smith is almost the poor man's american Branko. Good chance he'll do some entertaining bullsh*t and Taktorov might take his knee home with him. I didn't know Taktorov beat Marsh recently.

Yeah, where were you at? I think I made a thread about that Oleg fight and tumbleweed rolled by. Oleg was the start of the Russian freight train.
03-19-2008, 08:25 PM
Knowing me, I was probably just out getting some tail. I have to beat these b*tches off with a stick. Pimpin aint easy but it's necessary, so I'm chasin b*tches like Tom chases Jerry. I wish someone would just off me and get it over with.
03-19-2008, 08:27 PM
On a side note, is Kimbo gonna fight Warpath next? I wouldn't mind seeing Kimbo fight Butterbean, but he's locking horns with Goodridge, one of Fedya's biggest wins, in my book.

As far as offing yourself, I think CNorris manned up and ended himself. I haven't seen him around.
I'd like to see Bean KO Kimbo for some reason. I'm a hater.

Kerr and Ricco are supposedly in the tournament. Kerr will get smashed again of course.
04-01-2008, 01:03 PM
bob sapp and norriss now theres some entertainment

Pretty sure unless someone was pulling a hilarious April Fool's joke. Ricco should win the Tourney.
Side note: What's up with talking sh1t about Wand calling him the Chump Murderer and what-not. If you get brutally KOed by a dude twice, you can't really talk sh1t about him. I still think Page would win today but come on.
04-01-2008, 03:11 PM
I'd be really surprised to see Ricco in this tournament, but yeah if he is he wins.
I don't know whats up with Rampage and his sh*t talking. I find most of it to be pretty hilarious. Griffin does kind of punch like a crackhead. Maybe Rampage is bored with this long break between fights, but he has been doing the show. The sh*t he said about Wand is pretty stupid. I think Wand has his number and would still pull out a victory in the UFC.
04-01-2008, 03:52 PM
Dude, is your b-day today?
Yeah, I don't mind the smack talk about Forrest and still like Rampage, but you come off stupid putting down someone who's owned you twice.
04-01-2008, 03:59 PM
No doubt, Page should zip it up when it comes to Wand. That's what makes his sh*t talking so good, most of it makes sense and is funny.
My birthday was yesterday. I celebrated with an attempted offing, but unfortunately I failed miserably. Tomorrow I get all my wisdom teeth pulled and I still can't walk, party on!
04-01-2008, 04:42 PM
Edit: <---- Happy B-day, I hope it "rocks hard".

Yamma Fighting Surface Described; Kerr, Rodriguez Added to Card By Sherdog Staff Yamma Pit Fighting disclosed details Tuesday of the "Yamma" fighting surface to be used for the promotion's debut show April 11 in Atlantic City, N.J.
"The Yamma is a circular pit, shaped almost like a bowl, with a circular flat bottom that rises up around the edge," the promotion explained in a news release. "In this ring, if a fighter is pushed backwards towards the fence, he moves up the lip, gaining both a height and leverage advantage over his opponent. From this position, the fighter on the lip can use gravity and leverage to reverse his opponent and take the fight back into the center without a break in the action."
The last several weeks had brought much speculation regarding the surface.
"Some people thought it would have a moving floor, spikes or even live alligators," said Yamma Pit Fighting's Bob Meyrowitz. "But the Yamma isn't about flashy gimmicks; it's about the evolution of a sport and how the traditional ring can be altered to accelerate that evolution. At its core, the purpose of the Yamma is to make MMA fighting more exciting for those who matter most -- the fans."
Yamma Pit Fighting also announced that Mark Kerr (Pictures) will fight Oleg Taktarov at the event. "The Smashing Machine" fought Friday in Oklahoma, where he defeated Chuck Huus with a keylock in the first round.
Ricco Rodriguez (Pictures), who's coming off a split-decision loss to Antonio Silva in February, has been added to the heavyweight tournament.
The main event pits Eric "Butterbean" Esch versus 42-year-old veteran Gary Goodridge (Pictures). Fighting this past weekend in Seoul, South Korea, Goodridge was knocked out in the second round by Mu Bae Choi (Pictures).

I hate to admit it, but I'm a little interested in this Yamma event. Both superfights should be entertaining and the tourny got much better with Ricco being involved. Flame away.

Kerr/Taktarov is a great fight...for 1998. Still want to see Kerr win a decent fight, though.

I haven't seen Kerr since he was "on." Big difference in body composition.
Butter Bean... hmmmm.... does he really win fights?

Kerr has looked like that for probably 4 years.
Bean has beaten a few decent fighters, but yeah, he blows. He looks to be getting even fatter. Once on the ground he just has no hope of getting up.
