One of my friends was joking the other day about Vince's XFL trademark being for "the Xtreme Fight League" and what a worked MMA fed would be like. What are your ideas?

We came up with:
>No weight classes. Mastadons can fight 5'3" vanilla midgets
>Can win by escaping the cage
>Handicap bouts with mastadons facing three skinny tin cans

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'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.

Best to start training while you're skinny, so you have to rely on technique rather than muscle for power.
The muscle will grow naturally as you train, as long as you eat right.

I recommend Jack Dempsey's book on boxing "Championship Fighting".

The part about aligning your wrist to hit with the three smaller knuckles is gold. Try a wall push-up using that as your contact surface and you'll feel it.

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.

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.

I was watching a Texan pro wrestling match from the 1950s and this flappy boi pulls out what kinda looks like a prototype crucifix armbar/cross armbreaker. I've long considered it an "MMA" move and presumed it's innovation, or at popularization & appropriation by exhibitionists, was relatively recent (probably Brazilian). Now I'm wondering just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

What's the origin of the armbar, /mma/? What about other common maneuvers? Any especially interesting timelines that've been taken for granted & forgotten?

AFAIK it's a Judo move. BJJ had a lot of Judo in its inception, the Japanese master who taught jujitsu to the Gracie patriarch was a member of the Kokodan.
Judo goes back to 1882, the arm-bar may be in Japanese jujitsu before that, and there's probably variations native to the catch-wrestling that pro-wrestling devolved from, as well as sombo, pancration, and any other country's martial arts and sports that explored submission-based groundwork.
Like Bruce Lee said, “I personally do not believe in the word style. Why? Because, unless there are human beings with three arms and four legs, unless we have another group of human beings that are structurally different from us, there can be no different style of fighting.”

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.

What a terrible decision Edgar made taking that fight. He shouldn't have taken a fight against an up-and-coming undefeated fighter unless it was a main event and/or for an interim title. Now he lost his title shot and he may not get back up to the top of the heap again.
