'the last emperor’ is back and looking to cash in at his old pride stomping grounds – the saitama super arena. great to see fedor back in action, regardless of his level or the opposition ..

i haven't wagered on a sporting event in ages, but was oh so close to betting a few hundred bucks on weidman. thankfully i didn’t because i couldn’t have called it any worse..as yogi berra once said “It’s tough making predictions, especially about the future” lol.

luke rockhold is toast. if i were a betting man, i’d bet the farm on weidman and aldo.

negative. a 13 second KO is about as decisive as it gets. some may call it luck or a fluke, but if conor was able to land a decisive left hook within seconds, i’m sure he’d find plenty more opportunities over the course of 25 minutes. his length and the fact that he’s clearly in aldo’s head would make an immediate rematch pointless imo.

same goes for rockhold vs.weidman II. chris got his ass kicked, pure and simple. he needs a fight or two to regain his confidence before getting back in the octagon with luke. i seriously underestimated luke’s bjj, wrestling, striking, and power (yeah, pretty much everything ). he nearly choked chris out with a guillotine in the 1st rd and landed the harder and more telling blows throughout the fight. luke rockhold is one strong m*ther f*cker.

He called out Aldo's "not a real fight" comment. He could have just let that be, the crowd was already booing the comment but he had to interject his own zinger

My first reaction when seeing it live was that Aldo slipped or something stupid like that. But McGregor just timed the punch perfectly. Aldo was bit of an idiot exposing himself like that so quickly. Looked like he was going for a huge haymaker, which he did land squarely but he was already falling.

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

are you kidding me?..unbelievable!! who would have thunk conor would knock aldo out cold in the very first exchange, and rockhold completely dominate the ground game with weidman. just when you think a champion is unbeatable, along comes a challenger to dethrone him in the most unexpected and unpredictable manner. this is what makes the ufc so special. wow, amazing!

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

mcgregor looked like a holocaust survivor at the weigh-in. his face gaunt beyond all recognition and his body totally emaciated and dehydrated. physically and mentally drained is the overall impression i got, and frankly, i’m surprised his body hasn’t shut down after cutting so much weight, over and over again. win, lose, or draw, he needs to move up to 155 lbs immediately. (IV rehydration ‘ban’ is a total joke as i’m sure he was whisked away to his hotel suite immediately after the weigh-in for a drip.)

aldo looked strong, confident, and full of energy. there’s no question he’ll be able to go the distance if necessary. conor? i doubt it, and he’ll expose himself if he gets overly aggressive/wild and goes for the early knockout. prediction: aldo via tko.

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

I think Rousey overestimated her popularity with that comment. Before her beatdown at the hands of Holm she was on top of the world. With the movies, the ESPY award, appearances on Sportscenter etc.

And on the other hand Mayweather was/is vastly hated. Probably the most hated top athlete of all time, like literally everyone wanted Pacquiao to win that fight in May. Rousey ignored how ridiculous her comment was and assumed public opinion would back her up. But despite the hate for Mayweather it's very obvious that he would rock Rousey and people know that. I mean if top male boxers can't even knock Mayweather down with his unparalleled defense and quickness, then how does Rousey expect to take him out, restrictions or no restrictions.

That comment turned public love for her against her somewhat and hence the celebrations when she was beaten to a pulp by Holm.
