RIP Jose Aldo's UFC career by Mark Coleman - Sun, 04 Jun 2017 01:09:28 EST ID:JndLd2XF No.57760 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Holloway just completely destroyed Aldo. I agreed with Aldo when he got dicked around for a couple years straight instead of getting his rematch against McGregor, but it's pretty clear his posturing and gambits failed in the end. Think he gets cut on Monday? Bellator's been making a small bit of headway on UFC's market share so I'm not sure if Dana will still cut fighters out of spite anymore instead of making them languish through the rest of their contract. Either way, Aldo's never getting another title shot in the UFC after this. Too bad Dana's stuck carrying McGregor's jockstrap so he can get embarrassed by Mayweather for one last huge payday before he retires, because seeing Holloway-McGregor could have been a huge UFC main event.

Unfortunately he lost a lot of his leverage for a rematch. After he lost he was saying that he would fight Connor any time any place.
IIRC someone dropped out of a fight with Connor, they asked him if he wanted the fight. Abet on short notice.
And Mr. 'Any time, any place', said no.

I would love, and I mean fucking LOVE to see Mayweather have his age catch up with him and at least lose to Mcgregor. That said, it's highly unlikely. You're talking about one of the greatest boxers of all time, vs. a guy who has a small boxing background whose primary skills are in kicking and elbows.

It's a cash grab, they're both millionaires and it's going to be huge because it's never been done in the world of boxing. I'll watch the shit out of it and piss off everyone who hates Mcgregor. That said, he's likely to lose. It's like having a lion against a cheetah in a contest of speed. Sure, one is powerful but obviously the cheetah is going to fucking win because it's a god damn cheetah.

Watching this fight is going to be the same reason I root for the Redsox. It's mainly Irish nationalism coupled with seeing highly unlikely events take place.

It depends on who can throw their weight behind their punch, who has better cardio, who can avoid getting hit and to what end/martial art either has been trained in.

For instance, if the bigger guy was trained in traditional boxing and the skinnier guy was a muai thai fighter, it's likely it would go to the muai thai fighter due to the fact he knows how to kick. And a proper kick to the ribs from someone at least partially trained in muai thai is fucking painful, lets not forget elbows/knees to the face. The kicks would do in the boxer.
That said, if the boxer knew how to throw his weight and got in at least one clean punch, the smaller guy would obviously go down. Likely KO.

It also depends on whether either of them knew how to fight on the ground. Wrestling or Jiu Jitsu could easily turn the tide of the fight very, very quickly.

If they are both fighting without any formal training whatsoever, it would likely go to the bigger guy. Again, unless one of them knows how to throw a punch it would go to weight.

Knowing how to throw a punch, an actual punch, can make a world of fucking difference in a fight. It's the difference between getting hit with a wooden cane and a baseball bat.

lol. complete bullshit. How long until Dana cuts Mr. McMahon style promos between fights? I'm surprised they didn't put this on TV. The champ shouldn't have to fight a roided up woman if she doesn't want to.

How many times does the UFC put on a title fight where the challenger isn't even the #1 contender? de Randamie vs Megan Anderson would be just as good a match.

Cyborg isn't worth this headache, and the whole featherweight division is a joke.

Guessing this is going to lead to another fight against Holm, with the winner being sent to slaughter against Cyborg.

Also, UFC matchmaking with zero relation to rankings isn't anything new. In the post-McGregor world of the UFC they'll make whatever matches they think will generate bigger buyrates, regardless of whoever they rank as #1 or #2 on their own damn website.

War Machine gets 36 years to life in Christy Mack sexual assault case by Ron Keslar - Mon, 05 Jun 2017 21:26:30 EST ID:FeFxDNRI No.57765 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

A former UFC fighter has gotten a life sentence — with the possibility of parole — in a high-profile sexual assault case in Las Vegas.

War Machine, who competed on The Ultimate Fighter and also fought for Bellator, was sentenced to 36 years to life by a Clark County (Nev.) District Court judge Monday in a sexual assault and kidnapping case involving his ex-girlfriend Christine Mackinday.

War Machine, who was born Jonathan Koppenhaver, was found guilty on 29 of 34 charges in March, including counts for sexual assault and kidnapping. The 35-year-old will be 71 years old by the time he gets the opportunity at parole.

Judge Elissa Cadish told Koppenhaver that she didn’t think he was a “monster,” but a human being with good points and bad points. At trial, Koppenhaver’s defense mentioned issues he had in his youth, notably a hatred toward his mother. Cadish said she wished Koppenhaver had gotten needed help as a child, but still had to face the consequences of his actions as a grown man.

“As an adult, it’s up to you to address the issues that you had and certainly, as you know, it’s not appropriate to take it out on these other people around you,” Cadish said. “It’s not like this case is the first case. … There were many points along the way that should have been red flags that something had to change. I'm just grateful that we don’t have a murder case on our hands.”

Cadish said she still had to rule on a lengthy sentence to “avoid possible danger to future potential victims.”

Mackinday said at trial that Koppenhaver knocked out her teeth, broke her eye socket, fractured her rib and ruptured her liver in a 2014 attack. She said Koppenhaver attempted to rape her at knifepoint, but was unable to do so, and then chopped off her hair. Koppenhaver was also found guilty of battering the man Mackinday was with that night, Corey Thomas.

Mackinday, most known by her porn actress stage name Christy Mack, spoke at the sentencing hearing and said she believes Koppenhaver would kill her when he gets out of jail. Koppenhaver was offered 16 years to life previously and turned it down. Mackinday was not in favor of only 16 years.

WWE would have purchased PRIDE before it died had Vince McMahon let Shane purchase it and operate it, but Vince has a view of MMA akin to a concerned mother in 1996 watching the evening news hitpiece on the UFC. After all, those two US Pride shows were virtually auditions for an American company like WWE to save them from the impending bankruptcy that the Yakuza scandal started. Other than PRIDE I don't really see any other promotion being worthy of purchase since Bellator is deep in Spike/Viacom's pockets, WSOF is in NBC's pockets and Elite-XC was in CBS' pockets before they folded. I especially don't see them being able to create a MMA promotion coming even close to competing with the UFC, let alone Bellator or WSOF either.

This board is deader than disco but since this is 2 months away maybe people will see this by then. Anyways, the UFC is going to start a weekly TV show of live fights between guys on the verge of being cut for multiple consecutive losses, guys that were being squeezed out of their third guaranteed yearly fight on PPV and Fox cards, and I guess guys that haven't gotten a multi-fight contract from UFC yet. Mite be cool. The catch is that it'll be broadcast on Fight Pass, though, and I dunno anyone that's ever subscribed to Fight Pass.

If it happened it would draw for the freakshow/trainwreck aspect of it. UFC would be murdered by the press for it and would lose sponsorships over it, though. No state athletic comission would ever sanction it, either, so they would have to hold it on International Waters or on some Caribbean island. Or in Japan, because Japan is fucking wacky as shit.
