This is a stacked card for a "Fight Night". It's almost PPV-worthy.

Here's the main card:

Bantamweight T.J. Dillashaw (c) vs. Dominick Cruz
Lightweight Anthony Pettis vs. Eddie Alvarez
Heavyweight Travis Browne vs. Matt Mitrione
Lightweight Ross Pearson vs. Francisco Trinaldo

I'm looking forward to Eddie Alvarez overcoming the odds to become a top contender at lightweight.

Yeah and BJ, and a lot of others - but with a flowing, movement based game? his timing is going to be way off, no matter what. I'm going to cut my dick off and send it to that irish fuck if he pulls it off tho.

Glad to see Dom won the title.

Connor does weight cutting trickery to fight in the manlet division he doesn't need to put on any weight at all. He drops like 25lbs in water weight then puts it all back by fight day. Fighting Dos Anjos is probably still 10+lbs under his normal walk around weight so absolutely no need for Connor to gain weight.

All this means is he doesn't have to cut as much so will probably be an even better fighter with more endurance. He also won't have to go anywhere, as he lives in Vegas so fight night for him is just down the street from his regular gym instead of flying out to hue land.

There's a few online teaching projects, like the Green Ranger? Tommy? He's pimping some programme. That all costs actual money, though.

I can point you at some free resources though.

General advice for solo training that I can give is, get a full length mirror so you can check your form and a heavy bag so you know when you're hitting with force.

https://www.gracieuniversity.com you can take up to blue belt then go test for it in person if you wanted to pay for it. White belt you mainly just learn escapes since you'll always be in a shitty defensive position since you're new.

Like, obviously every person training in MMA doesnt plan on making a career out of it, some just wanna be able to kick some ass, defned themselves etc. but ive always heard its not legal outside the ring or against untrained people or something like that because your hands are lethal weapons at some point? If not that its friends of mine who get in lots of fights talking about respect and how people who start ause they can win based on their mma training are like bullies and are not real fighters.. So whats the real common concesuses on this with everyone here?

All of the strikes that MMA trained fighter land are just as legal as anyone else's.

If you happen to kill someone then maybe you'll be in just as much trouble as anyone else who kills someone else with their body.

In countries where martial arts were banned (Philippines under the dictatorship, Brazil where the slaves had to hide their Capoeira bullshit) then yes you were expected to 'register' but that was only so they could come and arrest you later to prevent you from training anybody your skills.

If you are say, a known boxer or other fighter and you assault somebody then lawyers will be all over that in court usually trying to prove that you premeditated the assault or just use it to try and trip you up so you say something stupid by ridiculing your skill so you claim otherwise (which is why you never take the stand in any case, anytime, anywhere it will never help your case).

In states that have that ridiculous law based on "mutually agreed combat" having any kind of proven fighting skills you didn't disclose before fighting would likely make you guilty of assault which is why that wannabe super hero idiot Phoenix Jones can get away with beating people up on camera because he tells them he has training when trying to provoke a fight.

How the fuck can anyone take the Heavyweight Division seriously if Dana thinks Cain Valesquez is a draw? There are better fighters in the division.

Like Frank Mir or Antonio Silva

Thailand, Laos, China, Japan yes plenty of 'grandmasters' who just do martial arts in the jungle or mountains all day, especially all the monks.

The head of our flip martial arts style was a 70yr old dude who lived in the Cebu jungle and you could pay him to train 1 on 1. When you showed up he taught Arnis/Balintawak beside a waterfall with handmade bamboo sticks in the middle of nowhere.

Thailand full of these guys too, find some tiny village and a monk will be teaching Muay Thai. In China lot's of them are Qi Gong fruityloops kind of crouching dragon Kung Fu nonsense but they use swords and other weapons. Japan one of the "official" Ninja lineage masters has his own sushi restaurant where he slices the thinnest cuts with hand forged swords and knives. Not really a remote mountain

I dunno about the hermits, but I've seen some oldies that impressed me. There was the 70-year old monk that sparred with Walt Missingham in his documentary on Shaolin. The old feller kept slipping around behind Walt so he couldn't even stay facing him. Walt kept stopping and looking around for him, lol.

There used to be a Youtube of a 70-year old Wing Chun master in a street fight with a young guy who ripped his shirt off and jumped at him. The old guy sort of shoved him mid-jump and he landed on his ass. Then he offers a hand up and when the young guy takes it he boots the kid right in the face, HA! There's an old saying that "Old age and treachery will overcome youth and exuberance".

There's footage of Morehei Uyeshiba and Ip Man in their 80's but that's hard to judge unless you know what to look for, because Morehei is doing that co-operative randori where they throw themselves, and Ip is just working a wooden dummy and doing forms. So you'd probably have to be familiar with the styles before you could judge what you're seeing.

I don't know how this translates into fighting, but I'll bet there's no other guy his age who can push him around, lol. I'd be happy to be able to do this at any age.

Dark matches back then were truly dark matches, man. They didn't air anywhere and were just to appease the live crowd. The preliminary system for cards these days is handled differently and always get broadcasted to at least one platform.

I've seen the dark matches ONCE, they were briefly on Youtube, they were only released on a Japanese edition DVD, we saw Scott Morris tap out a taekwondo guy in what was the fastest submission for many years. We see a little bit of the fights in the leadup to the main feature, but that was all we had for years.
