State of UFC; McGregor is for casuals, deserves to be stripped of titles by Chad Griggs - Wed, 14 Feb 2018 05:19:45 EST ID:4+OemBtb No.57990 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Why the fuck has this dude not had to defend yet? Makes UFCS so degraded to be giving McGregor such a massive push just for the publicity he garners. I want Diaz to fuck him up again or let him be stripped of the belts and leave already.

Championships have been a joke in the UFC for awhile now. It's been all about big money superfights instead of merit-based athletic competition for years now.

It could be argued the UFC will be in trouble in the long term. With 54 shows a year they are thinning out the cards and not promoting new stars. 2017 had two events that broke 1 million PPV buys, in comparison to 2016 which had 6. Their PPV buys are going down because it relies on stars, something in which the UFC are not creating.

Again, everybodies TV ratings are in a decline, and for the purpose of this argument, which you have made to be wrestling vs fighting. WWE IN THEIR DECLINE are still getting higher ratings than ANY UFC on FOX card.

UFC fight pass hasn't even hit 1 million subscribers yet, hell I'd be surprised if it had hit 500k.

I'm a skinny, 110lb 5'10 motherfucker who wants to learn how to box. Is there any point while I'm this skinny? Do I need to load on weight before I can start training? Also, do you generally go to a boxing teacher or is it something that they offer at gyms? I have amazing reaction times and have been told I can actually deliver a somewhat formidable punch, but I'm wondering if it's not gonna mean anything if I have to use my boxing skills on someone bigger than me. Any tips or general advice for someone looking to get into it?

You go to a boxing gym, nothing more nothing less, some are more like train whenever you want some are more based around classes, some a mixture. It should be a gym that fields amateur boxers, pro-am gyms are a thing in some countries but not all, but as a rule of thumb look for a gym that is tied to your countries amateur body.
And you're a 5'10 bantamweight (I think) that's quite a big advantage over most people that weight, obviously in sparring you'll go with lots of different size people but a good gym they wont be going all out on each other. I'm 115 kg, 6'4 and have sparred people your weight, it's just a skill practice.
Good luck, boxing is great and you'll get out of it what you put in.

you understand in boxing you fight other guys in your weight class, right?

being tall and skinny isn't such a bad thing if you can protect your body. you'll have a reach advantage and it'll be an awkward angle to reach your head.

Paul Gonzalez was a tall flyweight. Of course, if you're serious about this, you'll pack on some muscle.

I always thought it'd be kinda neat to have an MMA promotion formatted like a wrestling promotion. Regular (mostly) scripted programming with gimmicks, angles, live promos and undercard guys having short shoot fights. Angles of course lead to shoot fights on PPV and how the angles progress is determined by whoever wins and how.

I know you get asked for recommendations a lot but my knowledge of martial arts is limited and I have a bit of an unusual problem. I have a disease that's fused/fusing my vertebrae, the bottom 1/4 of my spine is already fused to my pelvis.

How do I get power into strikes without having to use my spine? The only training I've had is boxing and that was as a kid. Are there any striking disciplines out there that would work well for me given my issues? And as far as learning to escape joint locks, is BJJ the best for that kind of thing?

You shouldn't be using your spine anyway, your hips should stay in line with your shoulders, your torso turns as one unit when you pivot from the balls of your feet to throw a punch. Think of a barrel hanging from a rope, spinning with a plank nailed to it.
BJJ is pretty uber for escaping locks. The only thing I'd compare it to is Judo.

I'd investigate Alexander Technique or Feldenkrais Method, generally, to compensate for your condition. Spinal issues like scoliosis and lordosis are their jam.

Never heard of either of those but they both sound interesting. I have ankylosing spondylitis and I haven't been exercising my back the way I'm supposed to so I should be doing something like feldenkrais anyways.

Is there any rule in MMA about how loud you can scream? I couldn't find one. Makes me wonder if this could be a useful technique. Say you are in half guard and you cup your mouth around your opponents ear and belt out a sound that could cause hearing lose and/or some discomfort to your opponent giving you enough time to execute a move while your opponent reels in pain from your sonic blast?

Are there any examples of people using screams as a weapon in combat sports?

Refs can make you stop talking at their own discretion. Holly Holm yells a lot and confuses people with it. Bas Ruten once said "Look over there" and pointed up, the guy turned around and got knocked out. Not sure of yelling right in someone's ear but sticking a finger in the ear is banned so it might count as that and get you disqualified.

From TMZ

>Jon Jones has tested positive for steroids in his UFC 214 victory over Daniel Cormier, and he has been stripped of his title ... TMZ Sports has learned.

>Our sources tell us ... Jones tested positive for Turinabol -- an anabolic steroid.

>Jones won the July 29 fight -- taking the UFC light heavyweight belt from Cormier with a savage head kick followed by a barrage of punishing punches to Cormier's head.

>The title now goes back to Cormier.

>It's the second time Jones has failed a USADA drug test. He tested positive for banned substances in 2016 before UFC 200 and was pulled from the main event. Jones got socked with a 1 year ban.

>We're told this time around, he could be banned for up to 4 years.

>Jones had blamed his previous failed test on a male enhancement pill. He claimed he didn't realize the pill contained a banned substance and insisted he was NOT trying to gain a competitive edge.

Besides the Jones-Cormier buyrate and the cut the UFC is getting from the MCGregor-Mayweather fight this year has to be an abject disaster for the UFC financially. It's only going to get worse because McGregor is never fighting in the UFC again since now he knows he can make bank of boxing freak shows. I'm guessing Dana is going to do whatever possible to still bring Brock in to pop a buyrate next year, possibly a fight against Miocic if Brock is down to getting his face caved in for $6 million.
