No thread for the biggest UFC PPV of the year? That's a paddlin'.

Huge main event, Cormier's entire career and legacy hinges on this fight. If he loses then it's all over for him. If Jones loses then it's no sweat off his sack since Dana is hustling hard to set up Jones-Brock for either the New Year's or Superbowl shows.

Woodley-Maia should be an interesting fight, too, as it's a classic wrestling vs. BJJ fight. Cyborg is going to murder a can, too, but who cares. Cerrone & Lawler are probably gonna beat the shit out of each other for 3 rounds, too, I'm thinking potential fight of the night if the main event disappoints. The corpse of Renan Barao has resurfaced for the prelims, too, so that should be a treat.

Hi there. Focus on yourself, you can't control what others do, but you can control how your react (or don't). Perhaps breathing exercises using Qui-Gong for reference is useful. If you are at ease, feeling good from internal control: a la the Tao's cliched "doing without trying", others' shit flinging is low impact or nil.

Doing without trying can be breathing at a comfortable natural pace without thinking about it. Then when you breathe intentionally and the rhythm messes up, that's the "with trying" part, excessive effort. Through diligent practice, by paying attention to, but not interfering with natural breathing, intentional breathing can become similarly natural. Being at peace is like a shield so to speak. One's awareness of their surroundings and their internal going-ons is more acute.

So here are the basics. Good Posture Makes Healthy Qi
>Correct posture enhances relaxation, balance, proper breathing, and energetic flow. It is essential that you understand and practice the basic physical mechanics of qigong, what the Chinese call diao shen "regulating the body," before concentrating on subtler, internal aspects, such as coordinated breathing or specific ways of focusing qi.

"The spine should feel long and open, with the shoulders relaxed, neither slouched nor pulled back. The elbows, knees, and fingers are all slightly bent rather than rigidly locked. The feet are generally flat on the ground. The chest feels easy and open, neither puffed out nor depressed. The abdomen and solar plexus are free of tension, allowing the breath to become slow, quiet, and deep. The whole body is alert, relaxed, and more fully alive." (pg. 86)

Relaxation: Quan Shen Fang Song
>"Whole body relaxed." The word fang means "to release," and it implies that relaxation is not merely the lack of tension. It is activity. Quan shen fang song is alive, alert relaxation. It means eliminating unnecessary tension, being supple and alert to the environment. Relaxation is the first and most important principle of qigong. It is often considered a system of qigong in itself.

The book I'm drawing from, The Way of Qigong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing, goes on to describe alot of different exercises from the whole body to specific parts, so become more aware of the body, thereby having greater control of yourself.

>>57803 (Pt II)

Relaxed Body, Relaxed Mind
>Emotions that have been repressed for long periods of time are armored into specific muscular tensions and postural defects. For instance, if we tense our throat when we are unhappy, rather than releasing the pressure of sorrow with tears, this might eventually become chronic neck pain. [..]

Unfortunately, these internalized tensions tend to stay with us. As we become used to tension, it becomes part of our reality and identity. These tension and the situation that engendered it lapse into unconsciousness. This is the root of many chronic psychosomatic disorders.

Through qigong practice, we learn how to bring tense areas of the body into the light of awareness. Awareness is so powerful that it is sometimes sifficient to change a fixed pattern of behavior. Emotions that have been locked into the tension come more easily into consciousness. Old memories and feelings thaw out, realeased from the frozen tissue. If this does not resolve the issue, it at least makes it available to work with, whether in one's own introspective process or with a psychotherapist.

[..] Awareness is the essential ingredient in relaxation. Once the student is aware, it is possible to feel what is wrong and to exercise some control. This is called ting jing, "listening to the energy." Listening to the energy leads to dong jing, "comprehending and controlling the energy." However, since tension and effort are the problems, awareness and relaxation, although certainly involving focus and intent, should be effortless, a process of surrendering. Can you try to relax? I think not. Relaxation is a matter of paying attention and not doing.

The Organ-Emotion Link
>Lao Zi suggests a distinction between healthy and unhealthy emotion in his classic Dao De Jing: "The highest virtue is not virtuous, and is thus virtuous"; that is, true virtue is not self-consciously or compulsively virtuous.

Compulsive do-gooders are really afraid of or denying their own aggression and hostility. They try always to do what is "best," preferring to be placating, submissive, or self-sacrificing rather than expressing or fighting for what they genuinely feel, lest they "make waves." "The sage is not a do-gooder," says Lao Zi. The sage is true to his or her nature, neither compulsively following nor rebelling against rules of conduct. The sage is capable of expressing emotions, including anger, as necessary and appropriate to the situation. He or she practices self-acceptance and is thus more accepting and understanding of others. The first step in self-acceptance is giving oneself permission to feel what one is feeling; then inner resistance and friction is lessened and much of one's anger is already gone.

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.

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.

in fairness, the middleweight division was a gong show the first time Sonnen fought Silva, and the second fight was justified by his performance in the first.

It is, however, highly bullshit that he got a shot against Jones in his first LHW fight.

Remember though, this is a contender getting a break, not the champ. I'd say the UFC has been pretty consistent with not allowing champions to duck a #1 contender.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cormier missed weight today but the title fight is still on since the NYSAC is wacky and allows a second weigh-in for title fights and so DC got naked and then used the old wrestling trick of displacing weight by pushing down on the towel held in front of his body to make exactly 205 on the scale. I like DC a lot but that's pretty shitty of him as the champ to come in and miss weight. Oh well, fight's on and should be entertaining.

Also some female fighter got pulled from the card because of her breast implants so lol

Only if Johnson wanted it to. Same thing whenever anyone misses weight, it's up to the opponent if they still want to have the fight.

>>57728

Google it. Basically by exerting a small amount of pressure downward on an object independent of the scale (such as a hanging towel in this case, or you can try it at home by using a counter or rack near your scale) you can displace a small amount of weight and trick the scale into registering a lighter measure. A lot of people familiar with wrestling and weight-lifting weight cuts are familiar with the technique, the funny thing is that Cormier got away with it in one of the most publicized/media-visible environments possible.

Well they certainly had plenty of time after the first weigh in to scramble together some strategies for the re-weigh in..
It's not inconceivable that they discussed and tried several techniques before giving that one a shot out of pure desperation. I mean, it's more likely than not they had to try that out if all the other options were failing, right?
I can actually see the conversation in my mind's eye. I imagine the weight cutting team looking at each other and a look of knowing I in their eyes that although it might not have to be spoken but hey we all know what needs to be done here...

Can you see? They're all freaking out and DC black Fedor is throwing a fit when someone starts whispering in another's ear and they just know, ya know?

Fuck weight cutting they should weigh in on fight day-cutting is dangerous enough that ppl have died from it and it is a loophole for larger fighters to fight smaller guys

More proof you can't be a one round knockout striker and expect to win against a world class wrestler. Reminded me quite a bit of Shane Carwin vs Brock Lesnar. If we'd seen Johnson go against Jones, I bet Jones would've just been even more dominant. He wouldn't have wrestled him, but I bet we would've seen a lot of clinch work like in Cormier vs Jones to wear him down and kill his striking game. Looks like Bader is next up for a title shot, which will be the easiest fight in the division to call.

I really hope that it leads to less extreme weight cutting, but it's probably going to lead to idiots giving themselves serious brain damage after fighting while severely dehydrated.

After July 1st when F/T random testing kicks in we'll see a lot more shitty fights too, no more Vitor Belfort wheelkick KOs or huge wars in the cage.

Yeah there will be a lot more shitty fights, but I think there are a lot that are clean too. It'll be funny to see if any of the lower ranked guys suddenly rise to the top of the rankings because everyone has to be clean now. I'm pretty sure Dan Henderson and Frankie Edgar clean, so they could jump up a bit. The IV thing will definitely affect Aldo too, I don't think he'll stay in featherweight after this fight win or lose.

From what I heard from Meltzer a while back, it's obviously impossible to know the exact numbers, but in general, the lower weight classes (probably featherweight and maybe lightweight and lower) have next to no steroid use because of the need to cut weight down. Welterweight and middleweight are kind of half-and-half, and lightheavyweight and heavyweight are rife with users. The biggest problem, though, are diuretic steroids which help with weight cuts, and those can be used by any weight class.

Also, just to clarify a bit, IVs are not banned BECAUSE of weight cutting. They're actually banned because USADA found out people in cycling were using IVs to cover up dope use and it was working. Numerous other things, like blood transfusions, are also banned for the same reason. Losing the ability to weight cut is a side effect of this policy.

>Christy Mack is telling her side of the story and it's very ugly including 18 broken bones around her eyes, 2 broken bones in her nose, a ruptured liver and more. She says she expected to be killed by War Machine and fled the house when he left to get another knife from the kitchen after he broke the first one.

This is why you're supposed to plea out, so you don't get convicted of all 29 counts

Warmachine is totally punchy/brain damaged if you look up his interview on Rogan's podcast back in the day.

Hell, he was retarded on The Ultimate Fighter.

Him getting the giggles in court didn't help, either.

Hey, remember Junie Browning? What is it with stupid, out of control assholes and tattoos of hand grenades?
