Im gonna take time away from my family and wife to watch Zhang Lipeng vs Chris Wade? They did not pick any wrestlers which applied to fight except for the then inexperienced Ken Shamrock, who was the only real threat and vastly overstated the credentials of the rest of the fighters. The whole thing was pretty ridiculous. I never understood that logic. Those are all tangible items that cost companies money to make and take a loss when they're stolen. No cable provider is free. Ill catch it at a bar if its a big one or torrent the card and watch my favourite fighters while checking gif finishes of the prelims.
If content producers want us to pay for it, then it has to at least be simpler than the far easier and barely illegal alternatives. Gerard Gordeau is funny as shit, cheating even though there was supposed to be no rules, there still was. I just cant understand why you would do it when there is a free alternative that also allows you to put the finger up to the person supplying that product while giving you the finger. It's like watching Jerry West shoot jumpers and then Jordan throw down from the foul line except the jump shot is a headbutt. Basicly, the style vs style was hilarious, and quickly showed what actually did work.
. With that in mind, anyone with half a brain will expect Lesnar to shoot for the takedown. Jimi, you can come in here with your bare knuckles and punch me. His career has seen some major ups-and-downs, but Hunt has certainly established himself as a top 10 Heavyweight in the last few years. I dont get excited when I hear Hendo or Davis is going to be on the card any more than I get excited forThales Leites Vs Tim Boetsch. All that said, Hunt has been actively competing with the best in the world for the last few years. I dont mean to be an asshole but I honestly dont have time for work, 3x+ a week training, socialising, my wife, my family, the odd redditing session and then 50 odd cards of piss with some gravy at the top.
Now, A lot of the guys were probably not at the elite of the elite in what art they practiced, but one thing was clear. Against Hunt, Lesnar should move away from his blast double — if it doesn't work the first time at least — and look for some single leg takedowns. Fucking Norman Park vs Gleison Tibau? Have a good day sir. After the fight, Johnson made a surprise retirement announcement at age 33. They may have hyped up all of the fighters in the tournament, but it was still a collection of fighters from varying disciplines with real experience and skill. Plus I work my own hours and come and go as I please and get to travel. I just find it ridiculous that so many people are willing to fork over cash to someone who is decreasing the quality of the product they are giving you while increasing the price.
In the end, Cormier relied on his wrestling in a fight which was largely contested from the clinch along the cage. I've been watching all the Pride events from beginning to end lately. This time he survived a wild flurry in Round 1 in which Johnson landed a knee to the stomach, left hook to the head and a hard kick to the face. Also Art vs Royce is a funny one. To try to escape the submission, Gordeau gouged Nakai's eye so badly that he became permanently blind in that eye for the rest of his life.
On the other hand, this could be a huge moment for Hunt. He may have improved quite a bit at grappling, but the odds of Hunt surviving underneath Lesnar for more than a minute or two are quite slim. Such an unreal moment in combat sports history. I enjoy watching these fights but modern fights are even better because the skill is that much higher. Anthony needs to continue fighting.
What do you guys think? Why would they ban mouth guards? As Gracie said, and at least was true, if not still true is that every fight goes to the ground. Aside from that I was surprised to see Royce use headbutts. I believe what I'm doing is stealing, but in my country it's legal, and for as long as that is the case I'm totally willing to be a hypocrite. I suspect other people will do the same, if they haven't already. He may not always win, but Hunt has proven himself a consistently tough-out with dynamite in his fists. In a true example of manliness, Nakai still went on to win his next fight via armbar and then lasted a full 6 minutes against the legendary Rickson Gracie.
Closest thing to a modern fight was gracie vs shamrock. Do you want to see exciting fights or big names? I don't see why are you shitting on this card. If Hunt is stalking Lesnar from a low stance — the Alistair Overeem path to victory — his opponent's takedown attempts should be pretty obvious. I'll upload one every week or when the discussion dies down on the last one. Here is the gracie brothers giving their interesting perspective: Good idea unrulyuly.
I'll be honest, I torrent most ufc cards, even free ones, because I can't see them in my country. The next man to come out, Kevin Rosier looked legitimately scared when he was walking to the cage. Its easy and I get paid more than I ever imagined I would get paid. About Hendo and Davis, I'm not getting you here? It doesn't make any sense. I was also surprised by how unprepared some of the fighters were. He should actually be the one moving forward, as Lesnar does not want to strike with Hunt and nor does Hunt want his back along the fence.
