MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Some good fights coming up - in particular I'd draw attention to Keith Thurman v. Danny Garcia on Showtime next Saturday & GGG-Jacobs on HBO PPV with Chocolatito as co-main on 18/03.

Doesn't exist (in the app I have anyway). It's either make a quick post or find the thread in the edf forum, hold and click subscribe. Former is easier.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

I think Wonderboy avoids the big right hand this time and wins 49-46

Khabib vs Tony... I just dunno. Tony is a crazy match up for him. His TDD looked stellar against RDA, as did his striking. And his cardio is none stop. Khabib just seems so unstoppable though. Crazy that the winner of this fight won't even have a real title but I'd have them in my top 5 p4p.

I think Wonderboy will be more aggressive with the kicks. He needs to worry less about the takedowns and focus on winning the standup. I think the Weidman knockout put him off his game.

Definitely possible. A lazy unset up kick is what got him taken down in the first though. So maybe just be really careful to only throw well set up kicks and kicks that are hard to catch. I'm sure he'll be working on that with Weidman in camp.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

I think Woodley either KOs Wonderboy early or takes him down and Khabibs him into a pulp. Wonderboy's TDD is good, but he's garbage once he's on the floor, and I think Woodley makes a concerted effort to stay inside his range and take him down this time around.

I think Wonderboy will make better adjustments than Woodley and will use them to win this time. His fight IQ is the difference.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

I think wonderboy has better fight iq, but I feel like woodley only needs to up his fight iq by a few points to win. Use your wrestling. Use your wrestling. Use your wrestling.

If he can't remember to do that this time he will likely get butchered on the feet due to more aggressive adjustments by wonderboy, imo.

I see the fight being how Rory vs Woodley went. Although that's how I thought first fight would go I'm betting up Thompson making adjustments.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Remember Terry Etim, the guy Barboza wheel kicked to death? Apparently he jumped out of a moving car into traffic. Hopefully it isn't a CTE thing.

A martial arts fighter was seriously injured after running amok on a busy main road - throwing himself against moving vehicles and leaving them covered in blood.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing Terry Etim, 31, running "in and out of traffic" in Liverpool this afternoon.

It appeared he threw himself against as many as four vehicles , including three single-decker buses.

All but one were believed to be stationary at the time.

He was eventually restrained by police, detained under the Mental Health Act and taken to hospital.

His condition was this evening described as serious, the Liverpool Echo reported .

He was a member of the Liverpool-based Team Kaobon but the lightweight fighter has taken part in any competitions since 2014.

The dramatic events in East Prescot Road, a busy road into Liverpool, began shortly after 2pm.

Eyewitnesses who work in a nearby parade of shops first became aware of a man running in and out of traffic and throwing himself against the wind screens of a number of vehicles, leaving him covered in blood.

Hairdresser Andrea McCullough said: “It was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen.

“His friends were running after him and trying to restrain him on the floor but he managed to break free and was running in and around all the cars.

“He wasn’t trying to harm anybody but himself. He was covered from head to toe in blood."

Unconfirmed reports said he had been travelling in a car with some friends but jumped out of the car, a Ford Focus, and ran towards oncoming traffic.

Barber Alan Miles said he was having lunch when he heard a bang and “screaming and shouting” coming from the direction of East Prescot Road.

He said: “I went out and helped to restrain the man in a nearby car park, but he wrestled his way out from the people that were holding him down.

“He had blood all over him and I got a lot of it on my hands as I tried to hold him down.

“His friends were saying he was a professional cage fighter.”

Charity shop worker Anne Purcell described how an off-duty nurse came into the shop to ask for towels to stem the blood following the incident.

Holy ****. I met him years ago in Vegas a couple days after UFC 100. I was playing poker at MGM, and he was at the table. I had no idea who he was. We were involved in a few hands, but nothing major. Saw him at the pool the next day and he came over to say hi, and we talked a bit about poker from the day before, and then about all kinds of random ****. We ended up talking poolside for about 3 hours over a few buckets of beer. It wasn't until about 2 hours into the conversation the topic of what he did came up.

He was just a real chill dude. Became Facebook friends and stayed in touch over the next few years. He'd always message me when he found out when his next fight would be, and who it was against. It was cool to tune in and be like "yeah, that's my boy." I was watching at BWW the night Barboza decapitated him, and a bunch of people there who knew me and him were friends were like "damn man, you going to his funeral?"

After that night, he wasn't on Facebook a whole lot, and I don't think we had much interaction. I guess that was the beginning of the end for him.

Yeah yeah, I know...cool story bro.

Sounds more like PCP or depression than CTE. He only got KOed one time.
