  2. UFC on FOX: Poirier vs Gaethje - Apr 14

    ...and as good as that main event is, i still believe they should have gone with the Alvarez/Poirier rematch. Makes more sense and there's the story of the first fight to go with it. Still, cant complain too much. Any combination of the 3 sells for me. .

    weird how they didnt remake the Mercier fight.

    Jesus, I knew City spent a lot but that's fairly ridiculous for 2 seasons.
  5. The UKFF Comics n Graphic Novels thread

    As well as Garth Ennis' run with Punisher, starting with Welocme Back Frank, his one shot stories Born and Tyger are good pre-Punisher Frank Castle stories.
  6. The Mental Health thread

    Finished 10 weeks of CBT on Thursday. Don't need to go back for another month. It's the most mentally draining/exhausting thing I've been through. It's been really tough, but for the first time I can actually see some light at the end of the tunnel. I might actually be able to find some semblance of peace. It might not be or work for everyone, but if you've considered going for it then my advice is to do it. I was quite lucky in that I got on very well on a personal level with my therapist. I think that made a difference for me.

  8. General Adnan's Football 17/18

    Great win for United. Chelsea looked pretty decent in that first half. Finally Lukaku stepped up in a big game. Next few weeks are huge with Liverpool and Sevilla at OT.
  9. UFC on FOX: Poirier vs Gaethje - Apr 14

    Yeah. He was meant to fight Olivier Aubin Mercier but he was 30 odd lbs over the weight limit on fight week so they understandably didn't let him make the cut for the Friday weigh in and pulled him off the card. Hopefully he comes in lighter for this. He's got until April so there's no excuse.

    And I agree about Flip, hideous name and

    Me too, I was really happy to learn about their past. It makes the whole storyline seem incredibly well thought out. No idea if that's the case but I love it regardless. I tried to find their stuff on youtube but without context it looses a lot. I hope they have a long storied career, they have done an amazing job of making their humble beginnings a prologue which is incredibly insightful and rare.
  12. What songs would make for good entrance themes?

  13. UFC on FOX: Poirier vs Gaethje - Apr 14

    wasnt Gilbert Burns pulled from last weeks card for missing weight?
  14. I remember someone once said on here that they would POP big for anyone using 'Phil Collins - Something happened on the way to heaven' That's all I ever think of when I hear this song now! Those drums do make for a great start though. CM Punk has always pick good "actual" songs with 'Living Colour' and 'Killswitch Engage' in WWE and 'AFI' in ROH. What else would make for a great entrance?

    We've just had some discussion on this page and the last about the FA Vase!
  16. Wrestlemania 34

    If Reigns wins tonight that’ll be the 4th Wrestlemania he’s main evented in a row.
  17. Wrestlemania 34

    Crazy isnt it? Strowman could really become the companys next organic, larger than life mega star if they gave him the ball. Braun/Brock & Roman/Rollins is what i'd go with, the latter writes its self recently with the shield reunion, Reigns eliminating Rollins from the rumble and Rollins pinning Reigns the other night. I cant imagine anyone wanting to see Brock/Reigns again.
  18. NJPW World (Streaming Service)

    That was his first showing in New Japan, he’s an ROH guy. That'll be Tama Tonga
  19. NJPW World (Streaming Service)

    I’m with Supes. I’m new to this business but I’ve watched the last three shows and enjoying it. Never seen The Young Bucks before but they were great fun across the 2 recent shows. Flip Gordon is maybe a step too far into Jack Evans territory for my liking. The Cody/Omega thing is good, and Cody looks to be having the time of his life. Ibushi is in incredible shape, what a wrestling look he has. Only downside for me was Beer City Bruiser being spread so heavily across the shows. Not really digging that act. Does he work Japan often, or just mostly ROH? Looking forward to the Ospreay/Okada match. One of those Tongan fellas looks like an exact cross between Reigns and Rollins. Which was distracting.
  20. The Mental Health thread

    I'm undergoing a diagnosis for Asperger's/Autism at the moment and my head was all over the place on Friday. Not only have we changed our hours so the 2-10 shift is now a 1.30-9.30 on a Friday, but my supervisor was off so we had somebody covering who hadn't done it before. My routine had been disrupted twice, plus I'd had chance to drive the FLT, but was really struggling with it because of various issues with the thing I was trying to unload, which shook my alread limited confidence. It was a lot for me to try and deal with. At one point I just wanted to down tools and cry, but forced myself to keep going. The music on Spotify wasn't really helping, but I hate having to ask for help. I've tried to explain it to my supervisors and manager, but I'm not always the best at explaining, plus some of it may be a little lost in translation. All I can really do is keep waiting to hear back from the Autism service, and I have no idea how long that'll be.
  21. Speaking of films on Netflix, The Foreigner is a hell of a lot better than it has any right to be, really. At first glance it's a Jackie Chan vehicle, but it's got a really good cast, a good director, and the script/story is surprisingly sharp despite it being essentially a generic revenge thriller (which admittedly is one of my favourite genres). It reminded me most strongly of Patriot Games with a touch of Long Good Friday thrown in. And some kung fu. It feels like I've been watching Jackie Chan movies my entire life. In fact, I pretty much have. The guy's drive is astonishing - this is his production, and at an age when he could be forgiven for retiring or just taking pay checks, he's assembled this impressive production, and taken on a much more complex part than he usually does. And still doing his own stunts as well, by the looks of it.
  22. UFC on FOX: Poirier vs Gaethje - Apr 14

    Saturday 14th April. Glendale, Arizona. Big FOX. I know it's almost two months away but we really should start talking about this. FOX MAIN CARD Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje Carlos Condit vs Matt Brown John Moraga vs Wilson Reis Arjan Bhullar vs Adam Wieczorek Tim Boetsch vs Antonio Carlos Junior Israel Adesanya vs Marvin Vettori FOX SPORTS 1 PRELIMS Lando Vannata vs Gilbert Burns Abdul Razak Alhassan vs Muslim Salikhov Michelle Waterson vs Cortney Casey Yushin Okami vs Dhiego Lima FIGHT PASS PRELIMS Krzysztof Jotko vs Brad Tavares Matthew Lopez vs Alejandro Perez Shana Dobson vs Lauren Mueller Luke Sanders vs Patrick Williams Look at that. Best Big FOX show we've had in a while for me that is. Poirier vs Gaethje is just...do I really have to sell you on this fight? I know you never truly can say 100% how a fight will play out but in some cases, you just know it's going to be something special. When you put two guys like this in the cage, the ingredients for a dud just aren't there. Poirier is riding high at the moment. His last 3 fights he's looked great and had amazing fights with Anthony Pettis, Eddie Alvarez and Jim Miller. He's on fire right now. He's really got the look of a fighter who is hitting his peak form. And he's still not even 30. Gaethje is the one I'm really interested to see here though. He's coming off his first loss in an absolute war against Eddie Alvarez in December. Before that he was 18-0 with 16 finishes, was coming off a FOTY contender against Michael Johnson, was the WSOF champ etc. You never know how a fighter's first loss will effect them mentally but I wouldn't think Gaethje will lose any of his aggression. He's just wired funny. Even if he's planning to be more cautious, once he gets cracked the red mist will descend again. Can't see anything but a crazy slobberknocker with these two. And although they probably won't need the 5 rounds, it's nice that they're there just incase. Nothing worse than a crazy fight ending after 3 rounds just when it's on the verge of becoming a 5 round classic. Can't go wrong with these two. Condit vs Brown in some ways is similar to the main event. These two have built their careers on having wars and both are known for being in exciting fights. The x-factor here though is that they've both been talking about retiring over the last year or so. Condit's got his own business ventures going on away from fighting and Brown was actually saying going into his last fight against Diego Sanchez that it would be his swansong. He backed off on that after KOing Sanchez in a round though. And here we are. I don't really know what to make of this. Condit didn't look great against Magny last time out but in fairness it was his first fight in a long time and Magny is an awkward opponent at the best of times. Brown is much more suited to Condit's style. Usually I'd be lukewarm to a fight between two guys with a foot out the door but with these two, once the cage closes I think all that goes out the window and they'll bite down on the mouthpiece and go balls out. Should be a wild one. Moraga vs Reis will be good. It's almost a shame that these guys often go underappreciated because they're all victims of the Mighty Mouse reign. It gives them all the stink of being damaged goods but these are quality fighters in their own right. I've said for a while that I like Moraga. He's not got the best of UFC records (7-5) but he's one of those fighters who I watch and think he's better than his record would lead you to believe. He's won his last two fights and scored a crushing knockout over Bibulatov at UFC 216. Reis is going to be a tough opponent though. World class BJJ, decent enough striking and he's experienced and crafty. Boetsch vs Shoe Face is a fun clash of styles. Boetsch has been an undercard favourite of mine for about a decade now. Ever since he dumped David Heath on his head way back. And his KO over Okami in Japan ranks among the greatest comebacks in MMA history. Seems a top bloke as well. He's won 3 of his last 4 and most recently battered Johny Hendricks which is always a good time. I like Carlos Junior as well though. He won TUF Brazil a few years back and has a ridiculous BJJ game. Had a bit of a rocky start in the UFC but really seems to be finding his groove now, winning his last 4 fights, 3 by submission. I don't fancy Boetsch's chances at all if this hits the ground. Israel Adesanya is back! No fucking around. After a near perfect UFC debut at UFC 221 in Australia, he's still undefeated at 12-0 with 12 knockouts in MMA. That on top of 50 wins in his kickboxing career and 5 pro boxing victories. He's a seriously good striker. He showed glimpses of an improving defensive grappling game as well in his UFC debut but there's clearly still a long way to go in that area. This time he's up against probably the least Italian looking Italian on the planet in Marvin Vettori. He's 24 with a 12-3-1 record. Hasn't beat anyone especially noteworthy but he's got a few submissions under his belt so could potentially ask a few more questions of Izzy's ground game. Vannata vs Burns is another fun sounding styles clash. Everyone's style clashes with Groovy Lando's, doesn't it? He's a wacky character with his own unique way of doing everything. Burns is a BJJ world champion who has shown KO power recently. I like watching both of these but definitely rooting for a Lando Vannata highlight reel KO. Love watching him fight. Never a dull moment. Alhassan vs Salikhov is my ***WAND'S ONE TO WATCH*** for this card. This could be mega explosive. Alhassan is a little beast. He scored one of the more brutal one punch knockouts of 2017 when he completely wiped out Sabah Homasi with an uppercut from hell in December. He's 9-1 and all his wins have been by KO or TKO. And I'm really looking forward to seeing Salikhov again. I hyped him up before his UFC debut but it was a bit of a flop. He lost to Alex Garcia by submission on the Bisping vs Gastelum undercard in Shanghai. But his striking credentials are ridiculous. His kickboxing record is listed as 185-13-1. His nickname is 'King Of Kung Fu' for fuck's sake. He's 13-2 so far in MMA with his two losses being submissions. So it's clear he's got issues in the grappling. But against a banger like Alhassan, I think this could be dynamite however long it goes. Waterson vs Casey could be a good little battle. Waterson has a fun striking style with her karate background and she's got a pretty slick submission game as well. She's suffered a bit from being undersized for the division but skills-wise she's quality. She's lost her last two fights to Torres and Namajunas so she really needs a W here or it might be time to go back down to atomweight and back to Invicta. Casey's alright but with a 7-5 record, someone of Waterson's quality and experience should be beating her. I like the Okami vs Lima pairing. Glad to see they're giving Okami another shot after he stepped in on short notice for them against OSP last year. He's back down at welterweight for this, where he's done pretty well outside the UFC. I'd like to see him win this and go on one last run in the UFC. I like Dhiego Lima but much prefer his brother. Bellator definitely got the better Lima. Absolutely love this show. It's got a little bit of a WEC feel to it to me for some reason.

    The skin there just wank for tattooing. It regenerates really quick and forces all the ink out. As it heals chunks will drop out and fade. Also looks like it has some blow outs which means the ink will spread under the skin, leaving a blue glow around it

    It'll either be gloves or that concealer makeup I'd guess.
  27. 5 star wrestling

    Rondo Rousey by her own admission beat up her ex partner and called transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox a 'lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak' along with other disparaging remarks so I guess anyone complaining about a company using Bram should also not watch WWE going forward.
