I am 5'9 and 3/4 almost 5'10 and weight 124-125 lbs when I cut weight from 135. I walk around at 132-137. I do alot of upper body workouts burpes, I can do 500 push ups in a row. I do 100 miles on the layback bike some days while doing curls of 55-60 reps switching arms the whole time. I have a nasty leg kick good top gulitine. my strengh is my striking tho can switch stances easy and strike good from both south paw and reg. I am a righty tho. What sport should I choose and what weight class. I am 34 years old and am noticing Im getting slightly slower then when i was 32-33. Should I just say fuck it and just train for fun?

Train for fun. Youre too old to make a living out of this. Best case, if youre really fucking exceptional and put all of your effort into it, you can get one or two decently paid fights before you have to retire with considerable damage to your body and brain. Put that effort into literally any other profession and youre set for the rest of your life.

Gratz on hard work, Anon! But seriously man at 34 the sport will fuck you up beyond repair, don't punish yourself. If it's your dream then go for it and don't look back, but if it's just a hobby and you enjoy training then just keep training.

On one hand, morally I should feel bad for Miko. She just wants to do what is right, and the world attacks her. Kobachi flat out tells us this.
On the other hand, I understand the students. Her whole existence is made to be mocked. It's the tale of the foolish human who wants to fly too high. She's egocentric, selfish, and deluded enough that she never questions if she's wrong. We feel bad, because we know that she means well. But in truth she waves the rules and the books, but doesn't have the skills and the charisma to back it.

She's doomed to live a tragedy, and she fully deserves it.

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

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?

He's so twitchy and unco, he may actually have some kind of condition, like OCD or Tourette's. The compulsive grip changing reminds me of a guy I used to work with who had to back up and get set before he performed any action. Like, between bagging individual chicken nuggets, before opening a toilet door, turning a tap...
Still, from the looks of his channel, he's improved over eight months, doing handstand pushups is bretty gud. So he's gonna be unco and ripped.

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?

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:

Doonie Yen and Sammo Hung kind of started that trend with their thriller S.P.L., they pulled out some MMA moves along with their usual wing chun and Jeet Kune Do styles.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4ruXnuLtkk

They're two of the last filmmakers in Hong Kong who actually know their shit. Everything else is just model/actress/whatevers on wires with a lot of CGI who probably trained for a week.

Donnie, Sammo, Colin Chou, Yuen Biao, Wu Jing, there aren't many of the real martial artists left in Honkers.

Check this one out, with Donnie.

I haven't seen people get mad about stuff like that but then again I try not to associate with people who take life too seriously or can't take a joke, I've been doing MMA for years and I don't mind that people make fake fights in movies, they look cool and are entertaining, it's like watching Lord of the rings, it's just fantasy if I want to see a real fight I can watch UFC or ask another black belt at my dojo for a spar, that being said I can totally see some gymcel getting all mad about something like that

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.

Get pepper spray, a taser and a baton, and practice accuracy, speed and getting it out from your pocket quickly and unexpectedly. You dont need to train martial arts to defend yourself as long as you carry a non lethal weapon with you and can use it effectively. A street fight will last literally 5 seconds. I recommend pepper spray (in gel form, more accurate, resistant to wind and harder to hurt yourself with) its most effective on raging drunks with high pain tolerance, and you wont acvidentally kill anyone.
Otherwise you might want to try light boxing or jiu jitsu, but training will surely put strain on your joints.

I can point to a few good instructors who specialise in martial arts for the disabled.

Cole Rogers, Fightability
Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JEWI1LdHPo

Grandmaster Carlito Bonjoc Jr., Cadiz-Lapu Lapu Escrima
spina bifida

Hanshi Tim Broussard, Komuso Ryu
cerebral palsy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3BuvyG9gDo

They manage quite a lot with even less than you describe yourself as having, so I'm sure if you could contact any of them they'd have better advice than any of the chairforce warriors on this board, myself included.

That being said...

For the joint problems, Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Method, or DDP Yoga, and a lot of omega 3 fish oil and turmeric as antiinflammatories, and a lot of greens in your diet.

For self defence, a cane.

It's that time again, UFC 247 with Jon Bohneny Bones as main event. While we have same decent matchups in this card the real question is will Jon Jones put his tomato can matchup over again like he's done the last few times to give the illusion that the UFC's actually giving him difficult opponents?
