From TMZ

>Jon Jones has tested positive for steroids in his UFC 214 victory over Daniel Cormier, and he has been stripped of his title ... TMZ Sports has learned.

>Our sources tell us ... Jones tested positive for Turinabol -- an anabolic steroid.

>Jones won the July 29 fight -- taking the UFC light heavyweight belt from Cormier with a savage head kick followed by a barrage of punishing punches to Cormier's head.

>The title now goes back to Cormier.

>It's the second time Jones has failed a USADA drug test. He tested positive for banned substances in 2016 before UFC 200 and was pulled from the main event. Jones got socked with a 1 year ban.

>We're told this time around, he could be banned for up to 4 years.

>Jones had blamed his previous failed test on a male enhancement pill. He claimed he didn't realize the pill contained a banned substance and insisted he was NOT trying to gain a competitive edge.

>If the test results hold up, it's unclear how he'll explain his way out of this one.

What a terrible decision Edgar made taking that fight. He shouldn't have taken a fight against an up-and-coming undefeated fighter unless it was a main event and/or for an interim title. Now he lost his title shot and he may not get back up to the top of the heap again.

What the fuck happened to Cain Valesquez

He did what Joe Rogan thought to be impossible and that was to finally strip Brock Lesnar of his unquestioned reign with the World Heavyweight Championship

After basically exposing and embarrassing the fuck out of Brock he's literally never talked about meaningfully

What happened?

You what Lewis vs Ngannou looked like?
A game of Tekken when both players put the controllers down and go get a drink or something, and the characters just sort of stand there bouncing on their feet until the timer counts down.
Finally we have a fight more boring than the Gracie/Shamrock superfight.
Stand and Bland has been REDEFINED.

Is there any rule in MMA about how loud you can scream? I couldn't find one. Makes me wonder if this could be a useful technique. Say you are in half guard and you cup your mouth around your opponents ear and belt out a sound that could cause hearing lose and/or some discomfort to your opponent giving you enough time to execute a move while your opponent reels in pain from your sonic blast?

Are there any examples of people using screams as a weapon in combat sports?

I know you get asked for recommendations a lot but my knowledge of martial arts is limited and I have a bit of an unusual problem. I have a disease that's fused/fusing my vertebrae, the bottom 1/4 of my spine is already fused to my pelvis.

How do I get power into strikes without having to use my spine? The only training I've had is boxing and that was as a kid. Are there any striking disciplines out there that would work well for me given my issues? And as far as learning to escape joint locks, is BJJ the best for that kind of thing?

No no no, the force has to cascade from your heel to the surface of your fist through every available muscle and joint in one fluid motion. Like cracking a whip, where your feet are the handle, and your hand is the tip. Whichever direction your body is oriented in is only a trifling matter of gravity. Ideally, you should probably be pointed towards your opponent as much as gravity allows.

OP, I would advise against martial arts and maybe take up firearms and get a concealed carry permit. Don't just try to work around your injury and think you'll be okay, you won't. You'll get wrecked.

That's the biomechanics behind a power lead, like Bruce Lee and Jack Dempsey. And even then your heel should be off the ground, you can't pivot flat-footed and will put your back out, like OP is trying to avoid.

Per Dave Meltzer:

>ESPN+ will be able to put up all UFC events from 1993 to 2018 up for archives. From 2018 on, they will be able to add their events, but not the events from another partner, nor PPV events, which Fight Pass will have. ESPN+ also won’t have access to the non-Fight Pass library of boxing, kickboxing and other MMA promotions like Pride, Strikeforce and WEC.

So it sounds like ESPN+ users will get a giant UFC archive with their sub at no extra cost. Fight Pass isn't completely dicked, though, as it will still have its own exclusive UFC events, as well as all of the non-UFC events it carries. Fight PAss will also still have exclusive archives of PRIDE and the other promotions UFC absorbed in the past, so no PRIDE NEVER DIE for ESPN+ users.

Meltzer also said the deal is $150 million per year for 15 events, making out for roughly $10 million paid for event, which is more than almost all UFC PPV's pull in buys except for the few mega cards. Meltzer speculates this might cause for less PPV's in 2019 in lieu of these ESPN+ events taking over for some old PPV slots, which means these ESPN+ events will likely be closer to PPV cards in terms of quality and title fights as opposed to FS1 and Fight Night exclusive snorefests.

I was watching a Texan pro wrestling match from the 1950s and this flappy boi pulls out what kinda looks like a prototype crucifix armbar/cross armbreaker. I've long considered it an "MMA" move and presumed it's innovation, or at popularization & appropriation by exhibitionists, was relatively recent (probably Brazilian). Now I'm wondering just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

What's the origin of the armbar, /mma/? What about other common maneuvers? Any especially interesting timelines that've been taken for granted & forgotten?

AFAIK it's a Judo move. BJJ had a lot of Judo in its inception, the Japanese master who taught jujitsu to the Gracie patriarch was a member of the Kokodan.
Judo goes back to 1882, the arm-bar may be in Japanese jujitsu before that, and there's probably variations native to the catch-wrestling that pro-wrestling devolved from, as well as sombo, pancration, and any other country's martial arts and sports that explored submission-based groundwork.
Like Bruce Lee said, “I personally do not believe in the word style. Why? Because, unless there are human beings with three arms and four legs, unless we have another group of human beings that are structurally different from us, there can be no different style of fighting.”

Pro wrestling as entertainment is based on the rules and techniques of the Combat sport called catch wrestling. Catch wrestling is what pro wrestling was when it was real.

It is oldest known to be a mishmash of European styles of local wrestling from throughout Scotland, Wales, and England, etc. both during that period and after there was a lot of cross pollination between styles as guys travelled through other countries from the Middle and Far East.

This kinda looks like a nonsense concession hold but the cross arm bar is a staple of all grappling arts as far back as you can go. It was often taught in localized Japanese systems of jiujitsu which have never been syllabized. Catch wrestling was also never syllabised which is why it almost nearly died out and has a murky history while judo and bjj flourished.

Bjj and judo are seperate martial arts which were separately syllabised from the common ancestor of Kano Jiujitsu, which was a collection of techniques encompassing ground grappling and throwing.

Might be interesting for you to know that the heel hook technique you see in pro wrestling or MMA is a native technique to the martial art of pro wrestling. You can still see the evidence in the name of the technique (“hook”, meaning incapacitating grappling technique, as by joint damage etc, old pro wrestling term). There are some other techniques with cross over terms between catch wrestling or pro wrestling as a martial art, and modern bjj or judo, where the techniques are the same or very similar but have seperate origins and names. Here’s some pro wrestling technique names and their modern title:

Sleeper = rear naked choke
Abdominal stretch = cobra twist = the twister
Front headlock = guillotine choke
Double wrist lock = Kimura lock
Cravat = baseballbat choke
Top wrist lock = Americana

There’s a bunch more.

In addition there are many techniques in catch wrestling which you still see today like the stf which many pro wrestling fans don’t realise are real applicable techniques in modern grappling.

I'm a skinny, 110lb 5'10 motherfucker who wants to learn how to box. Is there any point while I'm this skinny? Do I need to load on weight before I can start training? Also, do you generally go to a boxing teacher or is it something that they offer at gyms? I have amazing reaction times and have been told I can actually deliver a somewhat formidable punch, but I'm wondering if it's not gonna mean anything if I have to use my boxing skills on someone bigger than me. Any tips or general advice for someone looking to get into it?
