Anyone picking Nate over Mystic Mac tonight? I've watched the non believers get their asses handed to em over and over again it's hard to doubt Mac has this shit under control.. But this is a huge step up for him... He's going straight from midgets to tiny men

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.

>When he’s asked if he is anxious or intimidated to make the transition from professional wrestling (where the punches are performed) to MMA (where the punches have malicious intent), he pushes back. His tone is even, but testy. His smirk seems strained.


>“I get this question a lot, and it’s like you guys think I’m an idiot. Like I didn’t know MMA wasn’t pre-determined or something like that,” says Punk. After a pause, he gives me side-eye. “Have you ever tweeted at me, ‘Hey, do you know what you’re getting into?’”


>“I never have.”


>“Okay. It sounds like you might have.”


>“I don’t mean to put you on the defensive…”


>“I’m not on the defensive. Your question is insulting. You’re asking me if I know the difference between the WWE and the UFC?”


>“That’s not what I’m asking.”


>“That’s exactly what you’re asking.” When he’s asked how he might respond to fans who question his motives for going into MMA, wonder if it is a publicity stunt, or wonder if he’s ever going to fight, he pushes back again. Now, he’s no longer smiling. “You say my fans say that? You’re mistaken. My fans do not say that. I wouldn’t say anything to them [my critics]. I don’t justify stupidity with an answer. I don’t give a shit what anybody thinks of me, whether I’m going to fight or not. I know what I’m going to do.


>“If I did anything in my life based on someone’s negative opinion on me, I would never fucking leave my house. My fans are people who don’t tweet negative shit at me.”

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?

Don't forget Butterbean vs. Genki Sudo and Minowaman. Giant Silva was a freak show as well. But a fight that really drives home the freak show idea was Fedor vs. Hong-man Choi. When Fedor was hanging off that tree branch of an arm while applying the armbar was just so surreal looking.

>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 Djibouti’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.

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.

So, I'm a huge fan of martial arts films, and I know Muay Thai has been in a number of movies out of Thailand, but has anybody noticed Donnie Yen sometimes incorporates MMA concepts in his movies that are meant to take place in the modern day and be more realistic (as opposed to films set in the past before MMA would be known in China, or films that are meant to be wuxia style fantasy)?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smLAFCVNpwA

This scene has a lot of MMA elements, and he still manages to get some great stunts thrown in. All in all, cool as fuck.

Anybody know any other movies that draw on MMA a lot for the fight scenes?

The movie you linked, Flash Point, was a spiritual sequel to SPL, which was the first great mix-up of MMA and Hong Kong action. Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung used a lot of MMA in the choreography, those two are always looking for something new, whether it's Wing Chun, Jeet Kune Do, or just boxing.

Other movies with MMA? Under Siege 2 had a brief fight between John Machado and Steven Seagal. Rorion Gracie consulted on Lethal Weapon, thus Mel Gibson's triangle choke at the end.

I really wanted to like Red Belt, but the guy brought in to consult on MMA was a traditional martial artist who hates MMA, and the film reflects that, making it out to be corrupt and rigged. Warrior remains the only MMA-themed film worth watching.

There's a lot of MMA fighters popping up in action films, and they're all completely wasted. These days even the martial arts films in Hollywood look like they were performed on valium.

Ignoring actual documentaries, there's The Hammer, the Matt Hammill biopic.

Honestly, there isn't much MMA in film, or good MMA films. There's more good Muay Thai and good Muay Thai films- Ong Bak, Beautiful Boxer, Duel Of Fists, Kickboxer, King Of The Kickboxers, Born To Fight (Kurd Ma Lui).

SPL is one of my favorite Hong Kong films (action or otherwise) of all time. I just linked Flash Point because that fight scene displays it more noticeably, I think.

I don't only like MMA-themed martial arts movies; some straight up kung fu films are among my favorite movies ever. I just thought it would be a cool discussion to have.

Anyway, I'll check out Under Siege 2 and rewatch Lethal Weapon. I'll also watch Warrior.

Have you seen Ong Bak 3? That fight scene with the elephants near the end was so over the top, I loved it. Hadn't seen any of the others on that list, though. Thanks for the recommendations.

(If you haven't seen Chocolate, I highly recommend it. Thai film full of homages to all the kung fu greats.)

I just remembered, American Tigers (1996), had a short but very smooth fight between Rorion Gracie and Cynthia Rothrock (in a cameo playing herself).
It was pretty b-grade, but also had Sam Jones (Flash Gordon) and Donald Gibb (Bloodsport, Revenge Of The Nerds).

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.

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.
