This is what we chose... if you heart hasn't died yet....and u still get sad..... this means that u are a weak fagglet.


Last ttime i cried for sports, I was 10 and it was basketball.. grow up.

Big Nog will never be who he used to be....

Chuck is more punch drunk than James Toney

Tito has a broken skull

Royce hits balls

Ken throws fights

Wandy is losing to Sonnen,nowadays

Fedor is losing to star wars and Mattrione fags

Anderson Silva hasn't won a fight since Bonnar

And dont let me start talking about fucking BJ . .. . .


....the list goes on

A never ending list . . . .


Learn to live with it or start watching table tennis

Rampage is fat
Shogun is a lower mid carder
Bisping retired Hendo



franklin ko'ed chuck

I had just woken up, so I was a bit harsh,in hindsight,how u call it..yea..

Except that isn't happening. 1) A movie company runs UFC so they're pushing whoever they think can become a star regardless of fighting talent, and 2) fighters aren't actually fighters anymore. It's a bunch of hipsters with shitty tattoos using UFC as a platform to promote their Twitch streams, podcasts, and Instagram meme pages.


All I know is that I have loads of reasons to be happy about MMA:

--- Justin Gaetje
--- Tony Ferguson
--- Blessed MMA
--- Ortega
--- Jon Jones
--- Hobbie Hawler still a top dog
--- Nate and Nick are rick as fuck
--- Romero will fight till he is 60
--- Whitaker is a hell of a new fighter
--- Arlovski is still getting paid
--- Hunt is about to fight in Japan
--- Kron,Rickson's son,came to the UFC and won in his debut..
--- Pettis got ressurected and knocked out the 'enigma' that is called Wonderboy :roll: :P
--- Phil Baroni and Stephan Bonnar are alcoholic heels on steroids doing wrassling
--- Cormier is doing his best and a rematch with Miocic could potentialy lead to a trilogy,which is cool.
--- Bam Bam is a good HW,durable and likeable
--- JDS is experiencing a second youth
--- Khabib is in a league of his own
--- Fedor had one last crack for HW gold,knocking out 2 UFC fighters in the process(not bad)
--- The ladies' divisions are growing and real fighters are emerging. (Andrade,Thug Rose,Joana,Nunes)
--- Uriah Hall is a sick fighter
--- Edson fucking Barbosa
--- Cyborg is still the queen
--- Dodson,Lineker,Dillashaw,Crazy speedy gonzalez,no game plan Cody.
--- etc,etc,etc,etc,etc


I am sure I've got many other reasons/names that make me greatfull for today's MMA landscape.


And some of the MMA 'greats' that have been kicked out from the same game they used to rule, have already found a second home...

And as for Frag's point of view I see where he is coming from being a Ken Shamrock fan probably hardened his heart a long time ago. My MMA heart first hardened after I saw the game changing with GSP. After he loss to Serra he took the safe point fight route which basically ruined half the sport hence my undying fandom for old school warriors like Penn, Diaz bros, Hobbie, Ando, Aldo and everything just bleed but UFC 237 just put an end to an era.

Being a Ken Shamrock fan my heart has been ripped out and and shit on and stomped on etc since 2006. He was out of his prime and losing well before then but that's the year he ceased to even make it competitive against decent and above fighters.

At least Ken destoyed Clifton(RIP)
and showed that he can still floor anyone with the right punch.. And he had some pretty decent movement, in that fight.. He took a hard fought decision win against some cunt(jonathan ivey,something like that) and he knocked Bourke down,before he had his knee fucked.. After that he choked out Kimbo and got the NC with Royce.

+++ he never fought James Toney,but hummiliated him in the press conference + got 10k up front and never showed up...


Dude is still breaking records on cable television with his numbers.... Biggest draw - main reason the UFC is still a company.



Tito fights were all at LHW thus making them a moot ? point.

he had some robbert barry, or something,knocking him out.... in a half dive half staggered situation.... where he got the clinch, at some point, Ken did, but didnt go balls in for the takedown..... ......... then he decided that he was a boxer..... .

:lol: :lol:

anyway. ......


Last but not least, he knocked the fuck out of Kimo.


All these are after his first retirement..


sakuraba fight,never happened,or too early... all tito fights were too early,pre retirement he had only one legit loss to Royce,which he avenged.



All is cool,dude. No worries.

Now this I can get behind. The UFC is doing a very poor job of building and promoting fighters.
There are too many problems, I honestly don't know where to start.

Split WMMA into their own org. (Incivta)
That would be a start. That isn't coming from a place of hate btw.
It just needs to happen. The top fighters in the mens divisions often get pushed to the bottom portions of the cards because of inferior women fighters. It's a major problem.
