  1. The new MMA general news, events and thoughts thread

    Before this it looked as though D.C vs Oezedmir was a done deal for early next year. This has obviously thrown a spanner in the works.
  2. Boxing Thread

    I only saw the Frampton and Tete's fight; but I have heard that Warren put on a good show overall last night.
  3. Bellator MMA Thread - Bellator 188 (Nov 17th)

    I would also pick Bader or Meathead as the most likely winners. Out of the entrants, they seem the least over the hill. In fact, Bader is probably still in his prime. If pressed, I would pick Bader over Mitrione. I suspect this Grand Prix will be a bit of a lottery for the most part - as Heavyweight MMA tends to be in general. Mitrione is going to have to trade leather with a fellow heavy hitter at some stage, and his luck may run out. He was quite fortunate against Fedor in his last fight. I could picture a Rampage, Nelson, or Fedor stopping him quite easily. Like Lamby, I could see Mitrione giving Bader issues. However, I think Bader matches up well against everyone else. He is quite a big Light Heavyweight, and won't be far off Fedor's size. Also, the likes of Nelson and Mir are not the most imposing of wrestlers. Sonnen couldn't handle Tito Ortiz, so he's unlikely to go too far. Mo might have some success with takedowns, but I suspect he'll get caught out and stopped at some point (like he was against Roid Cop in Japan last year). Regardless, I am still looking forward to it. A lot of potential fun fights to be had. Edit: Couture and Liddell would be perfect alternates if someone pulls out.

    Holm vs Cyborg is official for UFC 219.
  5. The new MMA general news, events and thoughts thread

    Latest on Diaz vs Woodley. It doesn't sound overly promising:
  6. Boxing Thread

    Aye, Smith was pretty dire that evening. It was like he was watching rounds 1 and 2 on repeat all evening.
  7. Boxing Thread

    I really like Adam Smith. He's a great presenter. However, he isn't always great as a commentator. He and Froch were pretty dreadful during the Chisora fight a few weeks ago. They made out like Chisora had lost by a country mile, when really, it was quite close. Del Boy didn't deserve to win, but he wasn't dominated. The scorecards were quite fair in the end. Mind you, the commentary team of Jim Watt and Nick Halling that came before them didn't have many supporters either. I didn't see Smith vs Williams 2. I did manage to watch Josh Taylor's fight on Channel 5. It was a very impressive stoppage win, even if the fight was quite close before that. The highlight of the evening however was Barry McGuigan almost having a meltdown over people talking in the background during his interview: "could you shut up a second guys".
  8. UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs Pettis - Nov 11

    Just catching up on this. The post-fight reports on this site are a godsend for me these days. Possibly. I also think injuries are part of the reason for his decline. His career trajectory has not been stable for quite some time either. Despite that, it is also possible that he wasn't quite as good as he appeared. Would a fresh Pettis be able to hold his own against Max? Was the Pettis who fought RDA that far removed from the one who butchered Cerrone and rallied to stop Gill. There were always suspicions that there were serious holes in his game (mainly due to his loss against Guida in 2011). As a fan, I tended to scoff at such suspicions. In hindsight, his critics may have had a point. A combination of the above factors probably explains Pettis's decline.
  9. UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs Gastelum - Nov 25

    Gastelum is a really good fighter. He's dangerous both standing and on the ground. He has power in his hands, as he showed when he dropped Weidman and butchered Belfort. He's not the most imposing grappler at 185lbs, but he's still very strong in that area. Bisping is going to have to be at his best to beat him. I think he can do it if he keeps the fight standing, and overwhelms Gastelum in the mid/late rounds. However, if I was a betting man, I would be tempted to bet on Gastelum by TKO.
  10. UFC 218: Holloway vs Aldo 2

    Nice. I would have much preferred Max vs Edgar, but I can't really turn my nose up to Aldo as a replacement. .
  11. Minor News & Random Shit

    Some fake information is being passed around on social media. Yahoo tweeted out that Conor had been arrested at his hotel for fighting. The hotel and McGregor's camp denied the incident. Yahoo quickly deleted the tweet.
  12. The new MMA general news, events and thoughts thread

    Deary me. Even after the Weidman losses, he was generally considered to be the greatest MMA fighter ever. I personally disagreed with that perspective, but MMA media and a lot of fans were in his corner. He lost his aura as a fighter a while ago, now he's losing his reputation. The days of his triumphant returns to Brazil where he whacked Bonnar and Okami, the stunning "Like Water" documentary, and the 2nd win over Sonnen; suddenly seem like outdated news.

  14. The new MMA general news, events and thoughts thread

    I am well up for this. There's potential for plenty of fun scenarios. Fedor vs Mir Rampage vs Sonnen Fedor vs Sonnen Fedor vs Rampage Mir vs Rampage I would put the 4 less interesting fighters (Bader, Mo, Nelson, Meathead) in the same half. That way, the other 4 participants are guaranteed to cross paths. They could still do Mo vs Nelson in the less interesting half of the bracket; which would be a wacky and interesting match-up
  15. Boxing Thread

    Thanks for the heads up. I would have missed that otherwise.
