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.

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.


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?

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.

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.

So the other night I had this dream that they had picked a new Pope, like in that Dan Brown book, right? And they picked Jesse Taylor, from TUF series 7, Team Griffin v.s. Team Jackson.

And he kicks the window of the Popemobile out and rampages through the Vatican, chasing nuns and fighting the Swiss Guard, and screaming "I'M THE POPE! I'M THE POPE!", you know, wearing the robes and the hat and everything.

I'm going to have to explain my random bursts of giggling to my wife at some stage.

I've been a huge pro wrestling fan my whole life, and I like boxing. I started watching Invicta a while back and developed a bit of a crush on Katja Kankaanpaa, but then she retired.

Anyway, who can you recommend I follow in MMA with a boxing background?

Chuck Liddell had a nice "dirty boxing" style, he'd use more clinching and infighting that a ref would usually allow in boxing. He was coached by John Hackleman, who has a black belt in Ukidokan Karate, Benny "The Jet" Urquidez' style, that's probably where it comes from, Benny likes to flow from a boxer's clinch to a muay thai clinch and back, and execute strikes and judo throws from the clinch.

Kazuzhi Sakuraba is the best guy I've seen in MMA with a pro wrestling background. If you don't count Gene LeBell and Antonio Inoki, lol.
