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

I actually kind of agree with this warrior spirit notion that some people just have the physical and mental toughness and some do not.

However, I think that mostly can't be known until you're put to a v serious test. So not only are some of these fighters failing their own biggest test, but they might literally be realizing in the cage at that moment that they just don't have what it takes to pursue their dreams. Having that happen in front of your loved ones / millions would be rough.

I think we've seen many people's spirits break in the octagon and it's interesting / sad to me every time (i.e. Lieben, Danzig, Rousey). It's hard to remember cause they're often lesser fighters who you never see again, but I think it happens often.

Rep,

What's his name?

After AJ is done with you let's go. Sledge hammer thing they have at the old timey fairs where you hit the lever and it propels he puck up to try to make the bell ring, balloon blowing up contest or those knife fights where you're tied together.

What will it be?

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

i think my record for holding my breath is 2 minutes and that was when i was 11. Now it is probably slightly over a minute.

I'm not fighter material.

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

I would be willing to entertain an entire EDF trip to a town fair/carnival with feats of strength, throwing the ball at the pins, sumo suit wrestling, balloon animal making- basically, I'm willing to take it to the next level

This is contingent on them having one of those moon walk things though. I need the trip to be worth my time

You are welcome to come to my gym when I start training again and spar whenever. Have we ever formally met?


Who says I'm 100lb bigger than you? And we have met numerous times .


Why you scared bro?

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

Globo reporting that Maia vs Masvidal is in the works.

Felt Maia should take another fight but I was thinking lawler or something. This fight doesn't make that much sense.

Word is his cousin was flagged for having ties to organized crime.

http://www.mmafighting.com/2015/1/27...lator-standout

Normally I'd just chalk it up to the recent anti-immigration swing that has had completely innocent people barred from entry or re-entry, but given Khabib's close proximity to certain Russian and Chechen oligarchs, it's not exactly coming out of left field.

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

Maia vs Masivdal official for ufc 211

I think Maia should have tried to get someone higher ranking. This win wouldn't do a lot for him, wouldn't surprise me if they say he's still not ready for a title shot and Dana disses Masvidal. Especially with GSPs return

Dodson vs Wineland on that card with Cub vs Artem

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

It's MMA, course he can possibly win. I expect him to be like 7-1 underdog at least though.

It'd be hilarious if he did win. Probably get a title shot lol. Would be fun of Cub puts a brutal display on him though and starts trashing talking Conor about destroying his boy.

Someone posted some Maia stats, about him never winning a fight against anyone with 70% TDD+, and Masvidals is 79%. Then again Masvidal fought mostly at LW against non wrestlers. Definitely wouldn't surprise me if he won though, kinda rooting for it. Masvidals distance control is really good too so Maia will be shooting from way out most likely.
