What's the deal with Danis? He's had two fights, the last being nearly a year ago. What's there about him that he so frequently gives it the big I Am? Does he specialise in other combat sports, hence his sparsity in MMA?

I wasn't sure where to put this but I know some have asked questions about it before but the Chuck & Tito 30 for 30 show is being shown this Friday evening at 22:00 on BT Sport 1.

Here’s Marco Ruas murdering Paul Varelans with leg kicks just because...it’s Tuesday.   

didnt know where else to post this but this has to be a first...

He’s a legit BJJ guy but I don’t know if he’s even been competing in grappling competitions of late. He just rides McGregor’s dick and keeps reminding everyone they’re mates. He’s fucking embarrassing. Always posting shite like this on Twitter;

9-B884-AFB-9796-4-FA0-95-AB-50429-F5-DCF

B5-A1-CE8-B-068-D-4-E55-A4-F4-F01-D385-E

Which is all fine and dandy when you’re not only in the safety zone of social media but you fight in a different fucking organisation. People can go ‘he’s just doing it for attention’ all they want, it’s fucking lame and cheesy as fuck coming from a div who’s 2-0, hasn’t beat anyone and never fights. Chimaev turned pro a month after this prick and is already 8-0. Shit, he fought more times in the last month than Danis has in 2 years. And even though it’s getting silly seeing him calling out guys like McGregor, Masvidal and Diaz already, at least he’s calling out guys in the same promotion. By planting the seeds now, there’s a chance, however slim, that he lands one of those fights a year from now if he keeps winning. Danis is making challenges and claims he knows full well he won’t have to back up, and can’t contractually. Why isn’t he calling out Douglas Lima? Or even MVP? Anyone. Not that I think he should even be at that level yet but if he’s talking such a big game, why not shoot for those fights that Scott Coker can actually make happen? If he spent as much effort actually fighting AND talking shit and building himself up that way as he does being McGregor’s full time man slave and trolling fighters that actually fight, he might be somewhere now. Look at the attention Chimaev has gotten in just a month, almost solely from fighting. Then imagine what Danis could’ve done in 2 years in Bellator if he’d taken his tongue out of McGregor’s arsehole every now and then.

And you still get McGregor fans lapping it up and talking this nob up as if he’s a killer. It’s comical. One guy I used to work with was arguing with me one day, just after the Khabib vs McGregor fight, that Danis would KO Khabib in a fight. Seriously. His reasoning being that Danis landed a clean shot on Khabib in the post-fight brawl and Khabib “buckled” 😂 that obviously means he’d win in a fight where they’ve both trained, there aren’t 15 other people involved and Khabib hasn’t just fought for 20 minutes. That one punch during a mass brawl in a crowd of people proved Danis wins every time. Obvious really, isn’t it?

By the way, that kid got sacked just before Christmas for coming in hungover one day and still getting on his forklift, taking about 15 feet of racking out and nearly ploughing into about 6 people. I wonder what he was drinking the night before.

That's Kevin Lee out for a long ass time. Following what was probably his most impressive win, the head kick KO over Gregor Gillespie, this is bound to be disheartening for him. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster for Lee over this past two or three years.

Israel Adesanya switching things up;

He’s bringing out all the insecure homophobes on social media lately. I don’t know if he is gay, who cares, but I actually hope he is now and keeps kicking arse. Just to melt the fragile brains of the knuckle draggers who won’t be able to wrap their heads around a gay man being one of the best fighters on the planet.

Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen 1 was 10 years ago today. In memory of a classic fight and rivalry, here’s Chael Sonnen doing what he did best, talking shit on the Spider;

Question: what's going on with Stun Gun? Checked his Wiki, he hasn't fought since 2017. He's too old for national service; has he been injured?

John Pollock from Post Wrestling put a nice piece together for this. It was such a fun time. We get so much of the Bravdo now and whilst he's just total pantomime, I'll always love me some Chael Sonnen. I was shitting bricks watching that fight.

liking this fight for the headliner of the final of the 3 night Cage Warriors return.

A Mason Jones win there surely ends with him signing with the UFC.

This is the type of fight I would still be interested in seeing Weidman in for the next while. Re-matches against the guys who beat him. The old middleweight elite. Rockhold, Jacare, Silva. I don't want to see him in there with Adesanya, Costa, Hermansson, Whittaker, Cannoneer etc, at least not unless he could rack up a couple of good wins against the older guard of the division.

Injuries plus got married and had a kid. He does alot South Korean TV show appearances nowadays, probably makes more doing that than fighting tbh. He is a well known and popular sports figure there. I believe he did his military service when he was young.

Thanks for that. It seems a shame - his record wasn't bad, and his style was such that he probably could've continued to make money at a high level in the UFC. Stun Gun vs. Lawler could be a fun fight, as could Stun Gun vs. Alan Jouban.

Yeah, I liked Stun Gun. Just looking up his record now and it’s a bit better than I remember. His only losses are to Covington, Woodley, Maia and Condit. And even the Maia loss was a bit of an odd one that ended quick due to injury. There were decisions he won that people strongly felt he lost. The Matt Brown one was considered controversial at the time but I remember thinking a lot of that was overblown and down to Rogan doing his ‘I don’t agree with this’ face when interviewing Kim post-fight. What I remember Kim most for though, is that period where he went nuts and started just marching guys down. He basically became Korean Zombie #2 and it provided us with 2 of the best knockouts ever. 

Here he is sparking Erick Silva;

It was some fight and a hell of a KO but I always felt like this fight was a big part of why Silva fizzled out so suddenly. This and that Matt Brown war/beatdown not long after it.

And of course, the spinning elbow of death that wiped out John Hathaway. Really doesn’t get brought up enough when the subject of best MMA knockouts of all time comes up. It’s not quite Yair vs Zombie or Barboza vs Etim but it’s not that far behind for me...
