Yeah, I think the guy is incredible at what he does. I just don't like him, though. I have gone off Greg Jackson too since hearing this. Very disingenuous.

I think the wrestling would be the difference. Jones' greco is far too good. As good as Anderson's clinch is, a high level greco clinch is just a different leve of control.

Not sure yet. There's some drug testing issue going on at the moment. He needs to do a few things, including provide a new urine sample, before they clear him to fight.

wow. Hadn't seen that.


While I suspect such motives often play a part in acts of apparent sportsmanship across all sports, it's still pretty creepy to see it laid out like that

I'd like to think most are genuine when they check on their opponent. Surprised at Greg Jackson, since he has always seemed like one of the good guys. He has since attempted to explain what he said.

jones has found something which has transformed his life and now he’s a world champion. i have no problem with that. besides, he seems like a thoughtful, well-spoken and mature 24 y.o. who's handling the media quite well.

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

Brock Lesnar would still have to be near the top of the biggest cockchimps in MMA.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Brock Lesner is only about 2 and a half weeks away from getting his ass handed to him.

Silva would have almost no chance against Jon Jones.

Anderson Silva will lose to Sonnen if he fights him again.

Yeah I always find it a bit funny when fighters thank god. "Thank you god for letting me kick this guys ass, you're so amazing!" .

Jones seems quite articulate and thoughtful, though there's a creepy and a fake side to him. And that Greg Jackson thing is just icing to the cake, Jones' first instinct was to let Lyoto faceplant to the ground (which he did).

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

Overeem . Vicious striking! My ribs almost cracked just watching that.

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

I'm a bit disappointed with the match. I expected Lesnar to go for the takedown especially since he must have known Overeem would knee and kick any chance he gets.

To me it almost looked like he tanked the match once he got a taste of the Reems power. He began to turtle right away just like he did for parts vs Carwin and Velasquez. It's not like an experienced fighter like Overeem would gas out or anything. Lesnar had a shitty gameplan and should have done something. Even if a takedown attempt had been stuffed by the Reem that would at least get Alistair thinking and maybe not use knees and kicks so much.

Sure Lesnar might be a beast physically and have awesome wrestling but tbh he's not a natural fighter. He doesn't like to trade shots and when he doesn't like to get hit. Things probably didn't get better from his medical problems and surgery he did. Retiring was a good decision for him. If he doesn't have the will and passion anymore and even look a bit scared in the octagon he shouldn't be there.


Other things I enjoyed was Alexander "The Mauler" Gustafsson finishing another fight vs an experienced opponent. Extra cool since Sweden will get it's first UFC event in April now in 2012. I don't want to jump the gun or anything but maybe 2 more wins and he could be in line for a title shot. If he wins his next fight I could see him getting any of Rashad/Rampage/Shogun/Machida. Win there to and he is in line for a shot at Jon Jones. But yeah its a long way to go still

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

Yeah I also thought it was weird Brock didn't try to take Overeem down more aggressively but maybe he thought that he might get caught if he went in recklessly.

I was rooting for Gustafsson as well . Nice style. Hope he improves and gets a shot at the title.
