Re: EDF MMMay/Fightin' Thread

RT & Party,

Beating GGG at this point in his career seems like it'd be more impressive than anything Mayweather has done. Is that at all accurate, and how much better does Canelo do fighting Mayweather now compared to when he was 23?

Re: EDF MMMay/Fightin' Thread

If he beat Golovkin convincingly I'd buy it as more impressive than any single win in Mayweather's resume. As for how much better - I presume you're talking about him fighting the same Mayweather? I'd favour him over him today's Mayweather but it wouldn't shock me if Mayweather won a clear UD. As for how he fares today against a 2013 Mayweather - hard to say. I haven't watched last night's fight, and don't intend to. His previous two fights were against B level opponents. So I'm not sure.

Re: EDF MMMay/Fightin' Thread

Now that Condit is probably retired, I've been trying to decide who my new favorite fighter is, and Stipe has been making a solid case for a while. His wife's reaction to his shopping spree cracks me up.

Re: EDF MMMay/Fightin' Thread

In an absolute shocker Bisping says that his knee isn't healing right and that he will in fact wait until October or later to fight GSP instead of fighting Romero in July like he said he was going to.

If Canelo stops GGG, then yeah, I don't see any win on PBF's resume that's comparable. Had he have fought and beat Manny 5 years prior to their actual fight, then that would be in the same class, but we never got that fight.

Today's Canelo, somehow cutting to 154 and going back in time and re-fighting Floyd still gets tooled. Floyd is just that much better. If the fought today at 160, I think I like Floyd, but it's closer.

From the article regarding the new tough season, which will be at W125:

Quote:
Women ages 21-34 with a winning record and at least three professional fights are invited to attend the open casting call. Strawweights and bantamweights on the UFC's roster are also eligible, provided they can successfully make the 125-pound weight throughout the season.
Gonna need JJ to show up and wreck shop.

Re: EDF MMMay/Fightin' Thread

I mean the division makes sense, tons of women are caught between 135 & 115. But not happy about the fact WME is moving towards making WMMA such a big part of cards. Occasionally they have good fights but for the most part it's still pretty terrible.

I feel like Claudia Gadelha will be champ of that division. She's super skilled, but seems way too big for 115 and the weight cut kills her cardio big time. Probably favored over JJ at 125, as she won the the first 2 rounds of both fights but lost because she faded.

Re: EDF MMMay/Fightin' Thread

It's about time they got a women's flyweight division. I like watching the girls fight. Obviously they're not as skilled as the guys yet, and occasionally you get a dud, but their lack of skill sometimes makes things more interesting and exciting to watch. Kinda like getting a flashback to early UFC days.

Re: EDF MMMay/Fightin' Thread

Party,

RE: demographics

If my experience at the bar is any indication, I'd say it's 90% hispanic, 9% black dudes, 1% lost white people.

How much of those 1million PPV buys do you think came from Junior? GGG is like the Jose Aldo of boxing, but I gotta assume Canelo/GGG hits an even higher number than Canelo/Junior.

Winning the fight obviously means considerably more to Canelo than GGG, so if Gennady wins does he get some of Canelo's shine and start pulling in higher PPV numbers? I've heard this kind of thing is what helped get Floyd and Manny into the super-star realm when they beat Oscar.

Yeah that's basically 100% Mexican after the 100,000 or so hardcores that buy everything.

Lol @ anyone buying that fight that didn't have a national rooting interest in it.
