    Looks well nice that Mike. Even Photobucket is proud of that lot.

    UFC on FOX: Lee vs Iaquinta 2 - Dec 15

    This is tomorrow incase anyone forgets. Should be a cracking fight between Lee and Iaquinta and the undercard is pretty solid as well. Few bits and bobs to get the old juices flowing... Iaquinta vs Lee 1 full fight; Road To The Octagon; Al Iaquinta media scrum; Kevin Lee media scrum;

    Say what you want about Buck Dixon but with those sloping shoulders nobody’s catching him with a victory roll.

    Well said. I’d have thought someone who goes by the name Pier Six Brawler would appreciate the slobberknocking prowess of Tank.

    Thanks for the info Bacon. I’ll definitely give some more of his stuff a go. And Ramson Badbones as well.

    Just got around to listening to Chester P’s newest album that came out last week and it’s quality. Really liked this track ‘The Sermon’ with Ramson Badbones; Edit - OK, seems this song is actually years old but I’ve never heard it. Not up on Chester P, or UK stuff in general really. Apparently this was a mixtape years ago that’s been re-released. As you were.

    Physical Altercations

    Yeah. The main things to take away from this thread if you want to avoid getting a smack on a night out seems to be 1) don’t dress as a cowboy and 2) absolutely stay the fuck away from the alley by BomberPat. And if you go into that particular alley whilst dressed as a cowboy, well, you deserve everything that happens to you. I did think I was going to have to get into something late one night a few months back though. It must’ve been about 1:30am and I was in bed. My wife and daughter were asleep and my son, who must’ve been about 2 or 3 weeks old, was conked out. Our bedroom is at the front of the house, overlooking the driveway and path to the front door. I heard what sounded like someone fucking about with the door. My wife could sleep through a St Paddy’s Day parade but I’ve always been a really light sleeper. A cat can fart 4 houses away and I’ll wake up. So with this I was obviously wide awake. I thought I’m not having this. 1:30 in the bastard morning. Who’s this dickhead and what’s he playing at? I got up, put my best mean mug on and went downstairs as the Biggie lyric from ‘Warning’ popped into my head - “There’s gonna be a lot of slow singing and flower bringing if my burglar alarm starts ringing”. I meant business. Right until I got to the hallway and saw that there actually was someone standing by my front door. Then my arse started going and I imagine my Anthony Joshua game face quickly turned into a look of distressed gormlessness reminiscent of Karl Pilkington that time the ‘terrorists’ kidnapped him on An Idiot Abroad. Anyway, I shouted ‘Who is it?’ Like a twat. Like he’s going to say ‘I’m a burglar’ or ‘I’ve come to abduct your kids’. Or worse ‘We’re Jehovas Witnesses’. No answer. I said again, ‘Who is it?’ Fuck all. But they were mumbling something I couldn’t make out. Then I realised they were fucking about with a key. A sense of relief hit me as I thought it must just be a neighbour who’s been out on the piss and they’ve come home drunk and got the wrong house. Thank fuck. I was relieved but still pissed off at the inconvenience. I moved to open the door. Bracing myself with the nearest hard object to hand - in this case a tin of Febreze air freshener. Pathetic. I opened the door and to my surprise it was the lad from next door. Not drunk. As I was later to find out he was sleepwalking. He’s only 15 but he’s a big lad and he was just standing there blankly staring at me. I asked what he was doing and quickly realised he wasn’t with it and tried to guide him back round to his house. He wasn’t having any of it. Anyway, long fuck-about but from the tiny bit of speech I caught he must’ve thought it was me who was in his house and he got aggressive and tried to force his way in. Looking back it would’ve looked comical if any of the neighbours saw it. A 5’6” 33 year old wrestling with a much bigger zombie kid on the door step. But at the time, even mid-wrestling match, I was thinking what do I do here? I’ve got to defend myself but he’s a child. In the scuffle he somehow gave me a dead leg of all things (a fucking dead leg!) and dropped the nut on me while I just tried to keep him at bay and minimise the damage. Then he suddenly just seemed to snap out of it and stopped. I was on edge not knowing if he was going to kick off again, with a lump growing on my head where he nutted me and a leg which now had that horrible fizzy feeling that you get when your dead leg is wearing off. Luckily the commotion woke his sister up and she ran and got their mum. She couldn’t apologise enough and she came round again with the lad the next day to apologise again. He had no recollection of it and was really embarrassed. Apparently he’s been sleepwalking for years but never to that extreme. Freaked me right out at the time. Thank fuck I didn’t whack him with the deadly foreign object that was the can of Febreze. I’d be a headline on Chat magazine - ‘Neighbour callously murdered my son with air freshener’. We all laugh about it now but I admit I was jumpy the next few nights. Maybe he just fancied headbutting me and had the sleepwalking alibi in his back pocket. The whole thing was weird as fuck though and definitely didn’t do my street cred any good when, for the next week or so, my wife proceeded to tell the story to every cunt we’d ever met.

    Tank Abbott - a fine man, going through a rough time.

    I saw a clip of that interview the other day, he was talking about the recent Chuck-Tito 3 farce and I was shocked by how gaunt he looked. I was going to post a screenshot of him on here but didn’t know why he looked so rough so didn’t want to just go ‘Not such a Tank now eh, chaps?’ only to find out he was in a really bad way. Glad I didn’t now. Sounds like he’s been through a right load of shit there. Nice to see that his health problems don’t seem to have taken much of the edge off his cheery demeanour. He was having a pop at the Chuck and Tito thing and claiming he could’ve been a top level heavyweight boxer if he’d fancied it, or something. Got to love Tank.

    The new MMA general news, events and thoughts thread

    Felder seems a nice guy but he is quite arse on the headset. It has to be said. I didn’t really mind him at first but he’s just dull now. Never really adds anything that you think is a great call or info that teaches you something or...anything really. Hopefully when Bisping starts doing the commentary they’ll phase Felder out. I don’t mind him as a FOX analyst in short bursts. He’s decent in that role. But when he’s out there for 3, 4, 5 hours it exposes how little of note he’s got to say. Bisping should be great. Can’t wait until he calls a Rockhold or Masvidal fight.

    To be fair, they haven’t really used him that much have they? Shame because he’s really good but Rogan’s always the lead colour guy on the PPVs, with DC or Cruz as the third man (not Mabel) and a lot of the Fight Night colour spots lately have been filled by Felder or Hardy. You’d think ONE will have him as a much more regular fixture and he’ll probably make just as much money, if not more, judging by how ONE are splashing the cash at the moment. It’s a win/win for him l guess. It is a shame though because I think he’s better than Felder, Hardy and maybe even Cruz myself. I know Rogan’s part of the furniture but for me Anik, DC and Jimmy Smith would be my number one team. Anik’s really grown on me after a slow start, he’s actually really good as the main anchor doing play-by-play, certainly a vast improvement on Mike Goldberg. DC brings some personality and flavour to it and definitely credibility given that he’s one of the best P4P in company history and a double champ. And then Smith is kind of the MMA human encyclopaedia figure who can really add to the whole thing. Sort of what Mike Tenay was in WCW with the cruiserweight matches. Anik, DC and Smith are the ideal blend for me for an announce team.

    The funny thing is I could swear that the BBBofC used to have a rule in place that stopped two PPVs clashing on the same night until someone got it overturned. That someone was Frank Warren apparently. I can’t find an article on it now but I could swear that happened. I hope it’s true. Frank screwed Frank.

    That FreeSports channel have showed some ONE as well. On delay but usually later the same day.

    MMA Podcast/Interview Thread

    I haven’t even listened to it yet but I remember him vividly describing how knackered his eyes were on his own podcast before and it was scary. It sounded like a combination of that and his wife pleading with him to retire were the main factors in him calling it a day.
