    Huh?


    Did anyone watch Cage Warriors on Saturday? That was a good card! Rosi Sexton seems to be getting worse, though. She's so ridiculously tentative!

    Finally got back to proper training on Monday and last night. Dying today, but not as badly as I expected. It seems my dumbell shadow-boxing and workouts paid off, as I was complimented by the head coach on my power, fitness and head-movement.

    My grappling has really suffered for the time off, though. I wasn't great before, either! Still, I'm having fun. Onwards and upwards!

    When I started playing guitar I dropped Judo because I was scared shitful to hurt my hands.
    Aren't you scared about it bro?

    Still haven't seen this full fight yet, unfortunately. Glad he won though.
    Money Mendes still hasn't convinced me he can do the same to Aldo :lol:.
    I guess we'll soon be seeing.

    I'm careful about it. I wrap my hands for boxing, I take it easy if I tweak my wrists at all, I'm very careful with technique so as to minimise risks. With BJJ, I don't intertwine my fingers, just gable grip and flatten my hands if they end up under an opponent. I'm also quick to tap to locks.

    There's still chances of injury; I had someone land their weight on my hand through their knee a few months back and my hand ballooned. Thankfully wasn't broken. Either way, Django managed so even if I was inhibited, I'm sure I'd still be able to find a way to express myself musically.

    I'm more worried about my ears, but I wear headgear for sparring and ear guards for BJJ/wrestling.

    I've seen lots of people get hurt, most of the time is because of other not paying attention, slip, everything...
    I was quite violent when I was a kid/teen and always ended up in brawls, but from the moment I started playing guitar I have become a kind soul :lol:

    Weidman beats Machida on Saturday. Anyone disagree?

    This fight is very hard for me to call. Also I can't even decide who I'm going for.

    I Really think Weidman needs to get this to the ground. I can't see Machida losing if it stays standing.
    Obviously they said the same thing with the Spider vs Weidman fights :lol:.

    Well we've seen how to beat Machida. Weidman has just looked like a world-beater, and he game plans very well so that's why I'm giving him the nod.

    Can't disagree with that, but I don't think I'd put any real money on it either:lol:.

    Very high on this upcoming FOX Fight Night card on July 26. It's really stacked for a free show.

    It's almost time to find out! :hbang:

    This is a great fight card IMO.
    These should be some gritty matchups on the main card.
    I'll predict Lawler, Johnson, Bermudez, and Thompson for wins.

    Pat Cummins (the guy who stepped in to fight DC last winter) is in the prelims vs Kingsbury.
    Get to see what he can do against a non-ranked guy.




    Just seen that D.C. is now in for 178 vs Jones.
    Gustafson injured his knee.
    This is a more interesting fight IMO.
    Jones and Gustafson was a great fight but I have no reason to think the second would go all that much different. They sort of stalemate each other's styles.

    While the Jones vs Cormier spectacle rages on I cant wait for Tj vs Barao 2. Their first encounter was easily match of the year to me. I'm expecting fireworks from Barao's side but ultimately, Tj will win.

    It was one of Joe Rogan's dozen or so "best fights in UFC history", from this year alone :lol:.
    Joe gets carried away but it was a great fight. :yesway:

    He seems to have Barao's number, but I'm picking Barao for the upset, although I'm not so sure the odds-makers will have it favored much either way, despite how the last fight went down.

    Yea Rogan was nuthugging that fight :lol: thing is though, it's been a long time that I've seen a fighter be so incredibly creative with angles. TJ threw kicks as if they were punches, much like Anderson Silva used to throw knees in the same fashion.

    It reminded me a lot of a healthy Dominick Cruz but with seemingly unstoppable cardio. The fact that TJ fought like an already established champion from the start but still whent for the finish just solidified it being the best match of 2014 for me. Until potentially the rematch.

    I don't watch any MMA, but I just wanted to express how happy it makes me that this thread has more than twice as many pages as the pro "wrestling" thread.
