Re: The MMA thread - UFC, Pride, Strikeforce etc.

I like KenFlo, seems to be a smart guy in addition to his nice skills. Though the punch towards the opponent after the win is a bit lame IMO.

Happy that Penn won, can't stand Sanchez for some reason. Maybe it's the whole Jesus thing.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Maaaaan I was watching the end of Penn/Sanchez just as I wrote that message above and now saw Diego's cut... That's NASTY. Biggest I've ever seen.

You know when you've just lost in Street Fighter and you get a picture of your beaten up character while you have 10 seconds to put in more coins to continue?

That's what Sanchez looked like last night. His face was a complete mess. He showed great heart and a strong chin to even survive the first round but he looked completely outclassed in there.

You hit the nail on the head with that comment

Re: The MMA thread - UFC, Pride, Strikeforce etc.

Speaking of videogames, anyone else have the UFC Undisputed 2009 game? It's pretty nice, though the career mode gets a "bit" repetitive after successfully completing it a few times. Additionally, if you want to create a superfighter, you basically have to reload every time you fail to get max points in sparring sessions etc...

But it's a cool game, really takes some skill and you can't win just by hitting the buttons randomly.

Have to bump this after UFC 140 last night.

Great fights and brutal submission by Mir, why Nogueira didn't tap out is a mystery.

Re: The MMA thread - UFC, Pride, Strikeforce etc.

amazing night, Mir was cold out and then submitted Nog 30 sec later....Nog won't tap unless hand is broken, he is one tough motherfu**er...Machida didn't tap either

Incredible event. Big Nog did tap after his shoulder/elbow popped, but he should really have tapped sooner. Mir is known for breaking bones if he gets a hold of a limb.

No one is beating Jones any time soon.

Re: The MMA thread - UFC, Pride, Strikeforce etc.

Jones is a freak of nature, I still can't grasp the proportions of his body. His limbs are so long it's ridiculous.

Would like to see him fight Silva.

i'm sure jones would love to settle the p4p debate at a catchweight of 197-198 lbs but i doubt spider would accept. he knows he would lose that fight, badly.

He is a lot smaller which is a great disadvantage but he's a superior striker and Jones would have to close in if he wanted to clinch and take anderson down. Don't think it's as clear cut as you make it seem.

at 36 y.o. spider would have no chance in a five-round, championship/main-event format. he'd keep it competitive in the 1st rd with some clean strikes and defensive skills, but bones’ relentless pressure and will would eventually get to him and he’d get ko’ed or submitted in the 2nd.

Jones is amazing but I could never be a fan of that sort of arrogant, outwardly-religious creep.
