Designed for War

Postby Shuck » Sun Oct 22, 2017 12:07 pm

There was a moment last night that I knew my boy, Cowboy, was fuckd.. both fighters introduced, walk to the center of the cage for the prefight intro square off, and this 24yr old brit-zilian calmly reaches out to Cowboy shakes his hand & gives him a pat on the back. A pat that made it seemed like, don't worry old fella, it will all be over soon.

One would think that it would be the seasoned vet, the one that made 34 walks under the zuffa banner, countless main events, 5rd fights, they would think that guy, Cowboy would be the one giving out the pre fight comfort shake... but no, it was a 24yr old 3fight under the zuffa banner new comer who was making his main event 5rd debut that did just that.. once that happened, I knew we were fuckd, this kid was different..

My admiration for Cowboy comes from knowing how terrified the man is each & every fight & yet he faces that challenge head on, never backing down.. but imo he wasn't born for this, he does it for the adrenaline rush, the unknown, he is addicted to that feeling.. on the other hand, there are a select few humans out there that are designed for war imo, the type of people that have ice in their veins when it matters most, the one's you hear about being avg joe shmoes in the gym but then becoming kings when the lights turn on.. to me Till is one of those guys, kid is special, he sealed that thought in my mind w/that simple pat on the back.

Had me thinking, who else? Who else has this trait... The clear Goat answer is Fedor, he summed it up, ice cold, gave no fucks, the calmness allowed his body to just flow, flow state.. Besides that obvious choice, who else?.. Cody Garbrant popped to mind, 10 fights into his pro career & he is literally break dancing vs one of the greats.. who else? Kelvin Gastelum, known for being the punching bag over at Kings, goes out & slays Giants.. Conor, hate him or love him, call him a quitter all you want, that man performs at his best when the spot light is the biggest, cool calm, flowy, you can see the confidence oozing off... Who else? Name names...

who else is Designed for War :thunder:

Igor Vochchcnahcncyn was an Ice Cold killer

Ngannou has that even keel no worries attitude too

Liddel had it as well

A young dude coming up now with a lot of composure despite being very violent and aggressive is Alex Volkanovski

Was going to post the Diaz bros, bj, and hendo but you beauties beat me to it.

Joanna seems to relish in it as well. Matt Brown? Mark Hunt for sure.

Not sure I understood it either, just need to vent for a bit :yell: .. solid picks Meowzie :tup:

Regarding Nick & Nate, the verdict is still out.. this will be a touchy subject for most on here.. but imo they used weed as a ped.. you can tell both of them don't like fighting, get paranoid prefight, well especially Nick, pretty much says he does it cause he has to.. they smoke to calm the nerves, your telling me he wasn't high as fuck vs Silva, i saw a cloud of smoke follow him to the cage.. no denying these two are warriors but they don't fall under this category imo, usada comes in the pic & all of the sudden they are nowhere to be found, mostly nick, nate gives less fucks.. diego & gatjge are some solid examples too

Nate gives 0 fucks.. he just has a bit of self confidence issues when it comes to championship fights. he chokes cause he wonders if a cholo can ever be a champ. Nick seems to have that, in the UFC, only, though.


Nate is a soldier. he will do whatever nick tell him to do at any given time.


Fedor as u said..


Bass Rutten was and still is a viscious fucker.



but under the calm and deadly category I like what u people said,already(ygor,hendo,chuck,etc) and I'd like to add a prime ken shamrock


in the mix.


Sakuraba + Funaki have perhaps the greatest fighting spirit ever.


Krazy horse kid chaos charles bennett comes to mind as well, as a ruthless warrior.


Wanderlei silva



Phil Baroni..?


Robbie Lawler.


Melvin Mahoef

Chris Leben.

Hands of steel, dude - MW, cant think of his name.. 2 fights with Cung Lee

prime undertaker. lol

Makes a thread that perfectly describes both Diaz bros then says Diaz bros don't qualify?

First of all i wanna say that when i saw that pat Till gave to Cerone i instantly got the feeling Cowboy was getin son'd

On topic

People with a chin like Hunto, Ferguson are designed for war.

People with the heart and determination of Frankie Edgar are designed for war.

People with the physical attributes of Jones are designed for war.

All those i mentioned were successful at the highest lvl of competition. But there are people with the above characteristics who might not made it that far. Those people are still designed for war.
