Sorry Dana, Nick and others, if you want to be taken seriously as a sport, you have to acknowledge that it's not all about money for many of these athletes. You do what you have to to win, within the rules. If an opponent is faster and more evasive than you, get better...


Diaz criticised McGregor for evading so much, yet he laid on his back, a few times, failing to goad him into some ground action. Both tactics were meant to get their opponent into a more desirable position, right? What's wrong with that?

heard about that.. i guess, you cant jsut go from a soap opera like show, all willy nilly-like to the real deal and think its au natural.

not really sure what seems worse tho.. would you rather get choked out/submission or knocked out? submission seems like it would be a little more embarrassing but too many ko's and the mind would go faster. at any rate, it does take some balls to engage in mma. it definitely aint a dance club lol
we are, what we allow to occupy us..

HENDO WAS FUCKING ROBBED!!
You tell me, who looks like they won the fight and who looks like they lost.
At the very least it was a draw.

I thoguht he won as well. but I can see how bisping could have won rounds 3 4 and 5.

Hendo didnt throw a lot of punches or do much of anything after the first 2 rounds. those punches and combos he did land SURE HIT HARD, but so little done in those last 3 rounds I can see why bisping won by decision. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND how Hendo lost so many points though!!! I scored him up by 2 in the first round and up by 1 in the second.

Id they scored it on damage alone, he would have won, clearly. Shitty system, winning by decision is.

GSP is no longer under contract with the UFC. Considering the possible exodus of other big names, (Aldo, Spider, etc.) Bellator might actually become competition for the newly purchased UFC.

A guy I grew up with is fighting Fedor Emelianenko this weekend. Matt Mitrione vs. Fedor Emelianenko. I'm cheering for Matt Mitrione.
