You like the sub 155 divisions, right? Do you think we really needed a women's strawweight? I don't.

Do you still think Conor is good for the sport?

it will be a huge PPV sell and people will watch all over the world, potentially bringing more eyes (and more money).  Yes, it's a good thing.  Only time will tell if he can actually back it up, but I love it.

I'm done defending Jon Jones. I will still watch him fight and love it. I think he is the greatest MMA of all time maybe. But he doesn't learn. I don't think he should be stripped of the title but if he is I'm not going to mourn for him.

yeah you can read back here...i never liked him as a person.  It's tough because he's still young and learning but shit man, don't be such a two-face

Being stripped of the title is probably the best thing to happen to Jones in awhile. Now the UFC can force him into a serious rehab program. May have saved his life.


I doubt he will be out for more than a year. The driver will probably come out and support giving him a light sentence too once she gets a 6 figure settlement from Jones/UFC. The baby's middle name should be Jon since Jones is going to pay for his college 5 times over.

he doesn't need rehab - he needs to grow up.  Or decide if he wants to be the best in the world at what he does or just sit on his money and act like a teenager.

Dude, he crashed a car while high. That goes beyond"reasonable and healthy" drug use. That is something someone needs to go to rehab for.

did he? I didn't read anywhere that he was even charged with DWI or DUI...

Does a DUI warrant a rehab stint? I think it depends on the case
SuperJail Warden

He ran from an accident and had a loaded one hitter in his car. He didn't get charged but it is obvious why he bolted.


He crashed his Bentley into a tree while drunk. There is a pattern developing...

good fights this weekend macB

Except the Cerrone fight. I don't mind Kahib's style. I like seeing someone get completely shut down like he did RDA but he is injured too often.

I got Johnson, Chris, Cerrone, Brown
I want Cormier, Vitor, Cerrone, Arvolski

Khabib is hurt dude. Cerrone is fighting Jon Makdessi.

I'm with you with the exception of Arlovski.  I like Travis Browne.

I know Khabib pulled out. I'm saying the Cerrone fight is kinda lame compared to the rest of the card. A lot of people are really upset at Khabib. I'm saying I don't mind his grinder style but he gets injured too much.


The first Browne fight I saw was his loss against Bigfoot. He acted like a dick in that fight, blew out his knee, and then got knocked out. He has a shitty personality.

Called it. Cain looked looked bad start to his finish. Werdum is definitely a top 5 of all time heavyweight
KEN-JENNINGS

Cain looked like he got beaten up and couldn't recover from the early get go.  But yeah, you called it for sure.  I'm pretty much always wrong when it comes to fight predictions.

the argument against Werdum being a top 5 of all time is the same argument you use to diminish Weidman's record - the guys he's fighting (with the exception of Cain) are all past their prime.  I'd like to see him defend the belt a few times before we anoint him top 5.

Mendes opened up as the betting favorite against Connor. Makes sense. CM trained to fight a striker with some wrestling and now has to fight a wrestler with heavy hands. I hope Mendes mauls him.

what'd you think of those fights last weekend?  Pretty awesome card.  One of the best ones I've seen in a long while.  Pretty impressive all around.  Funnily enough, I thought the main event was the weakest fight on the card.
SuperJail Warden

I only saw the co and main event. I heard the other fights were great but didn't know who the fighters were or didn't care if the fighters weren't relevant to the divisions.

The co-main was very good. Rory was doing so well coming into the fifth and I was really disappointed when he got TKO'd. I would not be surprised if we found out Lawler was on steroids.

Even if Mendes didn't go for the choke and spent those next 30 seconds on the ground, he still had 3 more rounds to go where he would have gotten knocked out. I knew he was finished on the feet when he would allow Conner to just walk him down and corner him. I am very excited to see Conner fight Aldo or Edgar. I just hope they don't drag this bullshit all the way until December.

Oh it will be dragged out. I think part of the reason they stuck Conner as a coach for TUF is to dodge the Frankie Edgar question and to use it as an excuse to draw the fight out until Conner and Aldo are both healthy.

Gunni Nelson is a good fighter and you should watch his fights.  He reminds me a lot of Fedor

What do you think of the whole Reebok, logos, stitch etc?

Did you watch the Bellator dynamite card? It was a good effort but fairly disappointing. I am happy that someone brought back one night tournaments though.

re: Reebok deal- I don't really care either way.  I think the fighters in general are somewhat underpaid and there is a lot of stratification in the pay grades.  I supported the sponsorship tax idea (although maybe not the amount of the fee) because the UFC set up the platform for the fighters to get sponsorships in the first place.  There's plenty of stories over the last 15 years of sponsors not paying fighters, changing deals, etc.  It's still an emerging market and there has already been a bubble and burst.  The reebok deal is terrible for fighters for sure, but it's an overall positive trend.  That being said, I am strongly for the organization of a fighters union (obviously), but it requires some people at the top of the pay grade to move that idea in the right direction.

The "uniforms" look terrible, but that's just an opinion.  I thought Stitch got a bad deal there, but again, I'm pretty indifferent on it.  I think it's weird that the "fans" latch on to these weird things like the cutmen not getting paid sponsorship (who the fuck cares tbh) and try to make a huge deal about it.  The bottom line is that you can't really expect to talk shit on your employer and not have any repercussions.  The UFC has demonstrated time and time again that they act like a mafia as opposed to a proper ethical organization, so i wasn't surprised to see stitch let go.  It was handled terribly by both sides.

Bellator Dynamite card didn't really get me excited.  One night tournaments are super cool, but I'd like to see the best fighters facing the best fighters in top physical condition.  I think one-man tourneys distract from the bigger goal of legitimacy as a real sport.  Then again, so does having the sport run by promotions instead of an arrangement between the talent and the promoters, like most other sports.

I'm thinking about buying a set of over 100 MMA DVDs (mostly older shows) off some guy on an MMA forum.  He wants $200 for them.  I'm thinking I will gladly pay $100, but I probably have 15-20% of what he already has, so that's all I want to pay.  What do you think MacBeth?

They will probably just collect dust in a corner of your place. You got a UFC fight pass already, right? There probably isn't anything in those dvds that isn't on fight pass.
