I spent a few years as a kid at pretty crap karate classes, but there was never any sparring or almost anything other than rote air training. I’ve been interested for some time in learning an effective combat martial art to actually defend myself, due to frequent family disputes ending violently.

Unfortunately, while I’m reasonably young (late 20’s) I am also considerably disabled. I take a high daily dose of methadone to be able to walk, and still spend 1-2 days per week almost entirely in bed due to severe joint problems. There is a degree of mechanical damage but my primary limitation is due to the effects of pain. It impacts all joints, but usually 2-4 joints are giving me trouble at any point in time. I have good days where that is almost unnoticeable, and bad days where I need support to stand (wish I had a cane). I would like to find something practical I could learn that I could both practice and use as someone considerably disabled.

I am 5’11” and quite lean, with little muscle or fat. I am prepared to spend time working as needed to work on that if relevant, within my physical capabilities. I just don’t want to lose any more fights to batshit crazy fat guys or morons with 2x4s. I’m aware that this will need to be an extended effort, that I would be walking in with practically zero and will face more difficulty and frustration than most people coming in off off the street. It’s worth it if I can stop some of the attacks against me and not have to wail about how ~awful~ they are kicking the shit out of a disabled person, it’s clearly apparent my family is shitty and doesn’t care.

What do you think about him brothers, is he champ material or is Diaz just old and busted?

I don't think Jorge is 'champ material' in the traditional sense.
He's been open about not giving a fuck about the "sissy belt match" between Kamaru and Colby.

The models are changing
>beat the top guys
>defend your belt against any and all
>fight stylistically bad matchups to prove your style is dominant

Nobody wants to see the wrestler vs. striker garbage we've been watching for 20 years. The UFC has done well in super fight matchmaking, and the numbers will certainly prove it when Kamaru Colby doesn't break 500k buys.

If Jorge fights 5 more times, given the landscape now, my picks are:
>Conor
>Dan Hardy coming back in 2020 in Top 5 shape
>Nate rematch
>Leon Edwards
>Douglas Lima

If Tony comes back and loses against Khabib, I'd like to see him go up and Jorge Tony would be awesome.

But no, I don't think he beats Usman and I don't care for that match.

UFC is fucking lame
rules are pretty womanly too
No strikes or kicks to the back of the opponent or vulnerable areas of the body
Takedowns only

Obviously bulking up is the only advantage

Proof that MMA is fucking gay

Anyone else have a rudimentary style built on childhood self defense and early adult drunken brawls? I took TKD as a kid and got a way with front kick jabbing and sneaking in dominant hand jabs to the nose with a left straight follow in a one point stance, if that did't work they would notice and not fall for it again, so it was freestyle after that. Roundhouses to back of leg when available. My groundgame is less than ass due to wrasslin in fights. What have you guys developed what are some good additions? Not going to learn a style just Bruce Lee style grab moves and master them kind of thing.

everyone headhunts in a street fight so high elbow guard. it's the best for protecting your head but leaves you vulnerable to body shots which they'll never throw. i use this with a passable sidekick i learned in TKD and one season of wrestling experience. i'm always shadowboxing and thinking of gameplans that i would use against top level MMA fighters just as a mental exercise.

Unless you're also one, and maybe even then given the risk-to-reward ratio, the best style in a "real fight" against a top level MMA fighter is called parkour. i.e., run like hell and get on top of something where they can't follow you.

This isn't meant to be a claim about literally all MMA fans or anything-- I'm a fan myself, albeit a casual one-- but why do I see so many self-proclaimed MMA fans (and sometimes practitioners) getting super fucking salty about kung fu movies and so on? They're fictional. They're pretend. It's okay for them not to be super realistic.

I understand getting annoyed when people see wire-fu shit and expect a real fight to be like that, but that's kind of the fault of people who take a movie that exists for entertainment to be 100% true, isn't it?

Also, this scene won awards for how well it drew on actual MMA techniques but choreographed them into an exciting fight scene for the big screen:

Literally unstoppable.

He toyed with McGregor, choosing to practice sparring with him before he finished the fight.

How likely will he get the title on Saturday?

At least it will be a better fight than Dustin, lol.
How tf do you know exactly what Khabib does and still fall in all the traps?
>backs up against cage
so he can get grappled exactly where Khabib wants him...
>"Nah dude, I've faced adversity, you just gotta believe in yourself."
Yea, but a grasp of reality is also important lmao.
Tony has a wrestling background and some intelligence (unlike air-head Dustin) so will hopefully be interesting,

Betting odds should be interesting to watch. Some cheeky money on Tony could be great since if anyone is to end Khabib's (28?)-0 win record it will be some weird Tony move, like a knee from nowhere that just decks him.

It is just, "Give us your fucking money!" or this pile of police standing behind you will fuck your shit up for us. (PS: Don't forget to bring the kids too, Vegas is a family fun center now! :))

Cormier had two rounds of Stipe staggering around with his guard down and his mouth open to put him away and chose to keep throwing rubbery jabs with one hand, then switch stances and continue throwing circus seal flaps with the other lead hand. One cross, that's all he needed. Is DC incapable of a cross punch? He literally let Stipe catch his wind while flopping away at his face like Gumby.
Stipe, on the other hand, is going to do great until he meets someone who can throw one goddamn straight punch.

UFC 1 is really easy to find but after that they it gets pretty difficult

I believe these are all on UFC fight pass but as individual bouts rather than full events?
