This kind of thing is a joke from a historical stand point but also funny to watch.

The rules basically reduce it to armoured grappling (which would actually be cool to see) but to try and pretend it is "close to real medieval fighting" they force them to hold weapons at all times.

The armour they wear has to be a certain thickness and the weapons have to be specially made to be "safe". On top of that strikes to unarmoured or lightly armoured areas are not allowed, this totally removing any historical type of armoured fighting tactics which naturally was all about bypassing the armour.

The vast majority of the injuries unsurprisingly come from joints being injured during takedowns and scrums. With nastier injuries turning up when either the organisers don't care about safety (eastern europe) or a competitor is an idiot and doesn't wear good armour. Or of course someone just getting unlucky and taking a hard hit to a lightly armoured location.

If he's jsut revealed himself for the first time how does anyone know that nobody in the entire UFC roster wants to fight him? I'd imagine the only reason they wouldn't want to fight him is that he's a nobody who won't help their careers by beating.

He's spent his whole life in jail and only recently picked up actual training. I'd imagine even Kimbo could beat him.

Nobody wants to fight him because he's a mobbed up biker enforcer so worried that gangsters will show up to your gym and demand you take a dive for a payout.

There's also visa issues, he's unlikely to be able to get one to go into the US/anywhere and fight being he has a huge criminal record so is stuck in Australia. His May 7th fight iat "Urban Fight Night 7" is already sold out

No one in the UFC wants to fight him because he's a nobody in the MMA world, they don't have anything to gain from beating a 0-0 fighter, or even putting him on the card.

The guy sounds like a dick from the way he speaks and what he's done, but good on him for trying to change. Martial arts is a great way to get your anger and ego in check, since you're constantly being humbled and beaten by those in your gym.

Physical fitness and aggression will only get you so far though, depends on what kind of karate his opponent trains in too.

There's nothing in the article about UFC, just no local promotion would touch this guy due to his criminal history and every fighter dropped out when they discovered who he was. He claimed he has "changed" but then again was recently busted while on probation with $100k in undeclared cash while driving around a BMW. He's still a gangster

Yeah I mean the OP talking about the UFC stuff, and a lot of the local fight promoters here in Australia, at least in Victoria are pretty shifty, I don't imagine it changes over the border. I doubt his criminal record has anything to do with the promoters, the fighters more likely.

That didn't look very egregious, I've seen people take way more unprotected shots to the head in UFC than that. This guy turtled up and had his hand up before the ref rightfully stopped the fight so he didn't actually get KO'd. I wouldn't fault either the ref or the other fighter for this, just seems like it was an unfortunate accident. Reminds me of that old story about pro wrestler The Great Khali training in California where the guy he was training with suffered a severe concussion but didn't tell anyone and so when Khali powerbombed the guy during a training drill it killed the guy. Seems similar here where Carvahlo just took one too many shots to the head and likely would have died either way after this fight regardless of the stoppage.

Fight makes no sense at all. They're throwing Conor to the wolves again, and it's bad for business for him to lose. If Conor couldn't beat Nate on two-weeks notice, how is he going to beat Nate with three-months preparation? Conor's aura is already gone, and the more he loses, the more his star will fade.

I agree, he hasn't even defended his belt once. Frankie/Aldo makes the most sense, but Max Holloway could definitely be involved if there was an injury.

Like it makes absolutely no sense that he can just dodge his division like this when there's fights there waiting for him. It's not like he's GSP who cleaned out his entire division, McGregor jumped over so many people to get a title shot and now they have to wait even longer.

I mean he's as much of a champion as Carla Esparza was.

McGregor VS Diaz did 1.5 million PPV buys, of course the rematch will immediately happen. Also, this rematch with Diaz is to keep McGregor in welterweight for the inevitable GSP vs McGregor superfight. Then McGregor retires win or lose with $50 million and we never see him again except in Hollywood.

So apparently a group of 3 or 4 guys have gone to every sportsbook in vegas and bet the limit on Dada 5000 winning, which is very sus when you consider kimbo was the favorite by a big margin.

Ladbrokes in the UK doesnt even seem to be taking bets on the fight anymore, its totally missing from the bellator 149 options.

So what do you guys think? Fix?

Dana White is a DMCA machine so I don't have links, but PRIDE had a lot of great (actually terrible but funny or fascinating) ones like Fedor Vs. Zuluzinho and Mark Hunt Vs.

>Though he was not part of the WWE’s recent WWE 2K16 video game, CM Punk fans who want to control their favourite star on screen can rest easy: he will be a playable character in the upcoming UFC 2 from EA Sports, despite having yet to appear in the octagon and having no professional fights as a mixed martial artist.

>That makes grading his strengths and weaknesses for the game somewhat problematic, no doubt. While the roster includes up to 250 fighters from Conor McGregor to Russia’s Alexandra Albu, only Punk, it seems, has zero fights in the promotion. How did EA gauge his abilities on the mat and as a striker? That remains to be seen. However, it’s clear the video game giant, and the UFC, didn’t want to lose out on the extra attention including Punk would bring. At the end of the day, it’s a business decision, nothing more.

>On the flip side, former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is not present in the game, but that’s more than likely the result of the WWE having video game rights to his likeness. Lesnar was part of UFC 1, but that was back before his new WWE deal. Should something be worked out down the line, however, he could no doubt be added in as an additional fighter via downloadable content.

>EA Sports UFC 2 got a solid review in an early look from MMA Junkie, and looks to be the best mixed martial arts video game to date. As it stands, it’s looking at a Spring 2016 release, so we’ll know soon – and there’s a good chance fans will get to see CM Punk fight in the game before he ever sets foot in the octagon in real life.

Don't have a link handy so whatever, but Punk is confirmed the lowest-rated fighter on the roster and will basically be absolute dogshit in the game until he has his first professional fight, at that point EA said they'll patch in his "corrected" stats and whatnot. So basically it sounds like Punk's in-game character will be the equivalent of when you could use managers as your character in the old WWE Smackdown games and you had like rated 50 everything.

Anybody can enter a team the only criteria is must have no pro fight record and your team has a collective weight limit max I believe. Foot stomping and soccer kicks to downed opponents allowed which is the dumbest idea ever as somebody will die in the ring one day. Nobody checks the fighters at ringside either they could be stuffing their gloves with steel shot for all anybody would know.

Nah, the guys in TFC are all trained in MMA to varying degrees and they wear gloves. The earlier ones were basically a 5 on 5 free for all under Vale Tudo rules.
It's evolving and getting more professional with every event. They've now banned the soccer kicks and brought it more into line with unified rules.

There was a time before MMA was even considered a sport when people were saying the same shit ITT about the early UFC events.
