There's going to be a card early June on pay-per-view for a Back-Yard-Brawling organization called BYB. If you're familiar with Kimbo Slice or DADA 5000 then I think you'd be happy to know this will be put together by the same peoples. There's going to be MMA involved but I believe it'll feature mostly 8-limbs striking.

I would agree, except that I feel having a real fighter as a third wheel infringes too much on Joe Rogan's territory. That said, they REALLY need someone to do B-D shows, that nigga that sounds vaguely like Joey Styles doesn't cut it (though I seem to recall them having Brian Stann working those shows too a little while back, I don't watch many of the not A-shows).

Well Rener Gracie did shill him as a good potential fighter, and Dana will want to milk this guy's PPV popularity and feed him some fall down goofs to eat for a few fights. Chuck Liddell used to fight entirely by telegraphing wild right hooks and he still won fights.

>Chuck Liddell used to fight entirely by telegraphing wild right hooks and he still won fights.
Roy Nelson does that now. Hell, Chris Weidman was telegraphing ALL his punches when he beat Silva the first time, but once Silva failed to dodge one, it was over. It doesn't matter if you telegraph the punch when you have OHKO power, all it has to do is land once. That said, you do have to be a little more technical in your striking in weight classes below LHW to get KOs, for the most part. Honestly, though, I don't think this argument applies. Punk is a BJJ guy. The one thing that's been surprising me here lately is every fighter's submission defense. There have been several occasions in the past year or so where I've seen what would be considered a fully locked choke or armbar get broken handily and the fight taken back up. Even within the last five years, I feel submission defense has come a VERY long way and now more than ever you're better off prioritizing amateur wrestling and boxing/muay thai over submission grappling (in particular since submission wrestling will get you no points from the judges, no matter how technically you outperform on the ground). Just my opinion, doesn't apply to WMMA, of course.

Roy Nelson is only in UFC because he has inhuman ability to take brutal punishment that would kill any normal man. His fighting skills are awful, but he cannot be KO'd easily, fuck Overeem and JDS spent 3 rounds beating the living shit out of him and it did nothing he was still dangerous until the 3rd round bell rang even after taking multiple kicks to the jaw and ribs over and over. Dude is invicible.

Nobody knows what kind of jaw CM Punk has but he seems pretty tough enough to fight considering Tyron Woodley has been shilling him as a good fighter and that guy won his last fight with a broken foot so if he says your'e good you're prob good.

Mark Hunt managed to put Nelson down, and I think Nelson's weight cut wasn't even as bad as Hunt's (someone said Hunt ate 23 cheeseburgers or something immediately after weigh-ins). Then again, Hunt nearly managed to finish Werdum on three weeks notice.

So it appears that everyone and their mother is putting money on Conor McGregor to win this Saturday, and 95% of any media on this match is focused on the Irishman to the point that they're already prepping for the Aldo Title fight.

So what happens if hell freezes over and Siver pulls off a Buster Douglas moment? Could McGregor's momentum make an immediate recovery? Who would be the next contender for Aldo if not Conor?

i have never been on this board before and this is my first post

i wanted to see what you guys think
mcgregor has so much hype for the aldo fight, do you reckon that its staged? like him stealing aldo's belt and taunting him. everyday i see so much coverage on social media for this fight?

also is he that good that he can take the belt?

btw i have only seen 1 mcgregor fight before

I'm 99% sure him taking the belt is a work. I don't think Dana would stand for it, and Jose and his family were sitting with McGregor's girlfriend for his fight against Siver. I'm not so sure McGregor WILL take the belt, but he definitely CAN. Shit, I was convinced there was no way TJ Dillashaw could ever beat Renan Barao, but here we are. All it takes is one bad weight cut to cut a guy's legs off, never mind the possibility of going into the fight with an injury. But Conor's a damn good fighter. From what I've seen, he NEVER tires himself out, and that's what a fighter needs to go five rounds. He doesn't waste a single movement and his striking is very technical for being a knockout artist. He's a rough diamond, but he's still a goddamn diamond, just needs to refine himself outside of the boxing a bit. His takedown defense could be a lot better, but it's not like Jose is a wrestler. I'd love to see him fight Faber if he wins the belt, since Faber is my favorite submission style guy (and maybe Faber will even avoid poking out his eye to get a choke if they do it).

MacGregor is a good fighter. People are selling him a little short because of the nuclear power hype train behind him but on pure skill set he's probably the worst match up for Aldo among featherweight contenders. Hes going to the best offensive striker that Aldo has ever fought and the first guy who will be able to, with his footwork and size, negotiate the range of Aldo. Guys like Edgar, Faber, and Mendes are all fine fighters but they're all shorter guys who have to commit a lot to closing the distance, giving a fast precise guy like Aldo everything he needs to work with as a counter striker. We'll see what happens when Aldo is the one having the close distance.

Yeah he fought taller guys in Hominick and Florian, but Florian was a slow old man who came forward the whole fight and Hominick is fucking Mark Hominick. Note in the Hominick fight Aldo shot a LOT of takedowns (as he did against the lanky Chan Sung Jung). He didn't shoot any against Florian only because Florian spent the whole fight trying to take Aldo down.

MacGregor hasn't been tested on the ground but he's a big strong guy and if he can make Aldo come forward and can defend the TD he's gonna win the attrition battle and, if he's ready for 25 minutes, come on really strong late.

Macgregor is going to hit Aldo, he's going to hurt him, and he's going to take rounds. You have to fave the champion in a 25 minute fight (and thats a long time for MacGregor's lax defense to hold up) but I think people are going to be very surprised how close this fight is.

Steroids are not bad in the least.
Use once a year - work out 3x harder than anyone else to maintain size.
You die at 50 because of all the speed and coke u took before the age of 50 - not the steroids themself.

Every single person to have died from 'steroids' has also been a known drug user and have abused themselves in other ways.

The issue with 'roids has always been people abusing them, meaning they aren't taking them for medical reasons and instead are shooting up for purely cosmetic reasons. It gets a bit iffy in a combat sport where 'rids can be used to goose strength and proper diet/weight-cutting techniques, which again all goes back to not using steroids in medically-approved way.

Hello /mma/,

I come from another Chan, (not the future), but I have always dreamed of a board specifically dedicated to MMA on an imageboard website. So I come to you as somewhat of a novice; all that I knew about 420chan was, as I was told, "as the name suggests the website focuses on marijuana discussion, as the name does not suggest there is a lot of discussion of professional wrestling." Or something along those lines.

Anyways, any excitement for this coming weekends UFC Fight Night 63 card? I think the main event is a bit of a mismatch. For me, Mendes would beat anyone at 145, except Aldo. (If anyone in the current division is going to beat Aldo, I'd say it's Mendes. Sorry McGregor.) A couple of other points of interest for me are that I'm one of the few Michael Chiesa fans, also I think Ron Stallings has potential.

So what say you /mma/? What are your predictions for the main event, or anything else related to the card?

OP back here.

Yeah I really like Iaquinta. But I do agree that Masvidal will be too much for him. Iaquinta has shown flashes of brilliance, but has been inconsistent. He's on a three fight win streak, but I can't shake off the feeling that it'll come to an end.

It sucks that the fights are on noonish this weekend. For me watching the fights hungover in my room alone won't be as fun, but oh well. I also hope that a Jackson-less Clay Guida won't be the boring fighter he's been for a while now.

Article is a bit old but some of you guys might be interested, it's about Jason Thacker who was the first person eliminated on TUF1 and how his life has been since the series and how it was leading up to it. I won't spoil anything in it and the article is pretty lengthy but I think it's worth the read. I guess it shows the reality of what can happen to those who don't make it in MMA and have to give up on it.

He's only 33, and he's already had as many injuries as he's had. You don't get better from recovering from injuries, in fact, you get worse. He's already made enough money to retire on, that's why he quit in the first place (aside from the moral high ground of "we should be drug testing people" after being accused of being a PED user himself). The only thing that would really bring him back is if it's what he really wants out of life. Only GSP can answer that, I just happen to think his answer is to be able to train without risking injury as much and without his family bitching about how they don't want to see him get hurt in fights. I do hope I'm wrong, though.

I dont think GSP is coming back. All the recent ped problems have proven him right. He doesnt seem desperate for money. He took a lot of punishment in his last few fights and had a ton of injuries so I doubt he will want to return to that condition and his last fight showed that he no longer had much of an advantage over the current generation of welterweights.

Because why would UFC hire a fighter who wouldn't even be in a weight division. Strikeforce folded their own 145 division before the end, so I don't see UFC starting up a 145 for Cyborg any time soon either. Carano would be okay at catchweight because she doesn't have the PED failure hanging around her neck like an albatross and she has the Hollywood factor. We all know that Cyborg would need to do (or rather, not do) one thing to drop the muscle mass to get to 135. No reason to reward her for refusing.

I don't see how anyone BUT Cyborg can be blamed. Cyborg wants to fight a 135 fighter in a promotion with no 145+ division. Would you expect UFC to let Jon Jones fight Chris Weidman if they had no divisions above middleweight? And also if Jones had a PED failure on his record? Cyborg said over a year ago that she was trying to cut to 135 and has failed to do it. The fact that UFC is babying her by giving her a trainer to get her down a weight class is kind of embarrassing for Cyborg (even moreso if she ends up failing for PEDs again any time within the next two years). I see no reasons why Ronda should ever fight her at catchweight.

Its not begging for a title shot, this fight wasn't a fight. It did not show the potential these two have. That's the point of '' I wanna do it again'' because its obvious she didn't show what she truly can.
And I don't even like just throwing Cat now out in a fashion ''Ronda demolished her, who is next''. The situation simply happened, like many close situations happen but this one finished the fight. Like when JDS knocked out Cain, it happens but that did not show the true Cain who trashed JDS later on.

If that knee landed in the liver where it was going, things would be interesting with that pressure that was intended. Also, not a lot of fighters do transitions on the head like Ronda does, who could have known. But god damn that was something.

We need a new sport.
Some kind of Kumite, or UFC.

Something where the only rules are - No biting or eye gouges.

This is what UFC once was - before the pussies and religious people got involved.

No rules, no weight divisions - a real fighting championship.

We need something like this back.
Something like Bloodsport with vandamme - the kumite.
Rules have ruined UFC and all other fighting championships.

Has nothing to do with pussies or religious people and everything to do with insurance and lawsuits. If you permit shit like small joint manipulation, neck punches and head stomps, fishooking, whatever else then you open yourself up to getting fucked by the police and courts.

You can maybe get away with this if you held matches on the Myanmar border but even broadcasting them live will be a challenge as no CDN will accept your bouts, so you'd have to create your own from scratch and good luck with that.

Instead of making MMA/UFC more bloody, they should go back to stuff like Pancrase where it was open hand only strikes to the face. You make more money if your fighters are healthy.

Is the Vale Tudo scene in Brazil completely dead by now or is it still bubbling away under the surface?
I imagine most of the talented fighters are training for unified rules MMA rather than NHB because that's where the money is, but I would've thought the original sport still has it's purists.

The last true bare knuckle, no-holds-barred promotion I can think of is Rio Heroes but they went under a few years back. (Due to their online gambling racket rather than the fact that it was Vale Tudo.)

There would definitely be an online market for it if enough competent fighters could be found.

I think it's pretty much dead at the moment, but I wouldn't doubt a resurgence sometime in the next 5 years seeing as there is demand for it (even if not so strong). I feel like it's in like an extension of the spot Muay Thai is in, it just needs a superstar or some big thing to bring it back into the limelight.

At least with Muay Thai, hopefully CMT picks up because that shit is so awesome, it's like Muay Thai in a cage with MMA gloves and takedowns but no groundwork.

This shit is fucking awesome! Thanks for the tip, bro.

It's a tripfag thread. I apologise for this, I'm very drunk, as I almost always am watching UFC. But I wanted to say goodbye. I really did. And I didn't want this to be a 'ME' thread, cuz honestly, who fucking cares? It's not that, I just wanted to give my appreciation to the board.

I've been here for like... what? 3 years? 4? /mma/ was always dead, probably always will be, and that's fine, but throughout the time we've always had fun. I can count so fucking little drama in the /mma/ streams or chats, there's been a lot of good posts, Smallway always brings it, the trip of Fedor Emilanegro or some shit, FierceBrosnan and his waifu, Maggot, DMTrious Johnson, we've had some fucking killer times.

I just had to make a thread to let you guys know, let this place know that as dead as /mma/ is, there's still a very vocal community. And we've had so much fun on saturday, I just have to fuck off, I'm fighting in July, I'm very excited about it, but I love this board and the people on it, it's a very small and vocal part of 420chan that almost feels nonexistant, but I wish you all well, /mma/ never die.

Cue the 'fuck you attention seeking' bullshit, but this isnt me making a thread about me, I just wanted to make a thread about /mma/. Isn't it fucking great? Don't you love this place? It's so small. I remember trying, I remember people being all "WE NEED TO MAKE /mma/ A THING". It never will be, it's just us, a small community of passionate mma fans, and that's fine too.

We're still going. This board is the fucking rebel child of 420chan, it shouldn't exist, it's worthless. We should be merged into /sport/ anyday now, but we aren't. And I like to think as popular as /wooo/ is, MMA stands because we're all a community and that means a lot.

I appreciate this board, I really do. And I just wanted to make a thread where we all came together, shared our experiences and give back to /mma/. Cuz it's given me a fucking lot, and I appreciate that.

I've been visiting /mma/ for years, and 420chan as a whole years longer than that, and I honestly always thought you were some /wooo/ trip. Other than that I don't have anything really positive or negative to say about you, so godspeed, I guess.

I wouldn't even care if the board dies (or is already dead.) As long as I keep in touch with the regulars in some way or another. And the time spent at the taima watching the PPV in better quality than I ever could from my shitty comcast cable provider really makes it all the better.
Good luck in your fight. I hope to make that an endeavor of my own soon once I'm done being a jiu jitsu faggot.

Kind of curious as to what people think of the chat/channel in general.

Also, looking to see if there are specific macros people would like to see there. Posting sources/pics will greatly enhance our ability to include them.

I'm thinking getting people involved with how the chat is run using the boards might help get a little more action here.
