Is this a work like Takada's old PRIDE fights or is Japanese Rule 63 Ric Flair going to die on New Year's Eve for the entertainment of savage Nips?

Cormier pulled out of UFC 206 today due to injury, and now the already-mediocre card looks like a black hole as far as PPV's are concerned. Makes me wonder if they'll cancel it like they did UFC 151 and 179 since for whatever reason they can't just make it a fight night on FS1 or Fox.

I assumed that Aldos interim title became full blown title when Connor was forced to vacate it.

Practical fight training

  1. What are the fittest disciplines for real fighting?

2. I've glanced through C-Mass by Wade and he says there are two approaches to bodybuiling: muscle system training and nervous system training. Former max outs your mass, but doesn't develop the pure strength (maximal accelaration you can provide to a fixed mass - such as the fist on your arm) to it's full potential, whereas latter does the opposite, maxing out your mass, while not being able to enlarge your muscles up to their limit.
Obviously, there are nuances here - for example, you still have to do SOME NS training so that you can really burning it to the ground with the MS, but that's not the point.

From the point of view of the second law of motion, you can't tell which approach is better. I don't have much fighting experience, so here's my question:

With other vaiables (technic, experience, whatever) being equal, what's more optimal for a fight: heavier weight with lower strength or higher strength with lighter weight?

If we're talking MMA, then there is no clear "power" discipline, you pretty much have to be competent in all aspect. I'd say the most important would be Wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu and some form of striking (Boxing, Kickboxing, Muai Thai etc.)

But like I said, if you wanted to actually fight and be competitive, it's a whole mixture of everything

Guys, I wanna get into MMA. What's a good starting point? I heard UFC has weekly shows on saturdays but I cringe when I hear they're over 6 hours long

If money is not an issue, UFC Fight Pas is a great way to not only catch up on any UFC and start from there, you also get old PRIDE fights, GLORY events and a whole bunch more content.

As for the lengths of the shows, they can be pretty long. A good rule of thumb is to not miss the main cards That's where the best fighters are gonna be and you'll get more competitive fights and ususally only last about 3-4 hours, but if your trying to learn the ins-and-outs of MMA, I recommend watching as much fights as possible to understand concepts and positions.

Watching on the tube helps as well. You don't have to sit through boring promos or commercials and it makes it go by a lot quicker when you're chatting with your bros. Hope I could be of some assistence today :)

Boxing has a ton of different weight classes though. Floyd Mayweather fought across five different weight classes, but there was only a 24 pound difference from the lightest to the heaviest class he fought in. There's a 25 pound difference from featherweight to welterweight in the UFC, and it doesn't help that MMA has a much larger emphasis on weight cutting than any other sport (even wrestling, since wrestling has instituted mandatory weight cutting limits). There are also multiple organizations with their own sets of titles for weight classes, while UFC only has one for each class.

i think conor being the draw that he is precisely the reason why dana doesn't want him to hold two belts.

going from one weight division to another takes time. you want your top draw out there as many times as possible.
champions probably fight more than non champions. you don't want to over expose your top draw, or have them get hurt sooner because they are constantly cutting & facing top competition from two weight classes.

If anything, putting a less exciting guy like mighty mouse in this position might actually get guys to buy his fights...

Who are your MMA "boys"? Those MMA fighters that aren't particulary popular or well known but you look forward to watching? The names you're looking out for on the prelim cards?

Rules:
No major championships
No main event fights on major promotion's cards (UFC, Bellator, Pride)
Exceptions for the above rules can be made, for example if they were a late replacement who wouldn't be put in that position normally or the opponent is obviously the sole draw. (e.g. Joe Soto when he stepped in for Barao to fight Dillashaw).
Women can also be a "boy", but refer to them as your "girl"

Mine are Ulka Sasaki (his first fight seriously impressed me and I liked his attitude for a Japanese fighter, I also want more Japanese fighters in UFC), Michael Chiesa (although he's rapidly getting too good to be a boy, exciting fighter and great attitude), Alex Caceres (very memorable on the Ultimate fighter, I'm all for Bruce Lee fanboys actually fighting and you don't know what you expect from him) and Ryan Hall (heel hooks! I like BJJ and seeing this relatively regular looking, laid back guy beat dudes who look like they're 2 weight classes above him. His fight with Artem "nice and flowey Artem!" Lobov was legit hilarious and memorable for me).

Just found out Ryan Hall is finally getting his 2nd fight in December, after Artem has had his 14th fight or whatever next weekend against Ishihara.
If you're an aspiring MMA fighter, don't worry about minor things like "winning fights", just suck on the tit of the most popular fighter in the company.

you came back after more then a month to bump this shit tier troll thread?

Everyone knew this would bring in hopeless wrestling virgins and probably increase sales because they are picking up a big audience of enthusiasm kids who want to see their favorite fake fighter try out in a real life fight.

He got beat in seconds and they tuned out, do you think it isnt some sort of unique event? it won't be repeated he will not fight in the UFC again, and even if he did he wouldn't draw as much because the hopeless wrestling virgins have already come to the conclusion that the sport is fake and people like punk who want to fight in the real leagues will just be destroyed by young kids.

Conor's biggest talking point is "eddie took this fight on his last contract".
Eddie at least is trash talking Conor's skills, but it's kinda weak...

Both guys need to take lessons from Chael.

It lasted all of five seconds before he went right back to defending as usual, but those hands behind the back were a total heel move.

Reach was way too much for Eddie.

Been watching for 2 years now, there is a gym 1 and a half hours away by bus so I thought I would at least check it out.

Going there next Wednesday, they have a 10th planet and bang muay thai under their gym name and I was wondering how I should go in there and what is important to ask.

I have considered asking: What classes when, should I buy a rash guard for BJJ (at the beginning) and, of course, how much each class costs.

Going to task this somewhat seriously, so I want to show them that and other than training as hard as I can, what can I do so that I don't end up sparring 40 year old married men, what I mean is, I don't want to end up in classes where it is not serious.

Also looking for local boxing gym just to hone in on fundamentals a few weeks after MMA, sounds good or should I ditch the boxing style of striking and go with MMA style of punching?

boxing is good for more than just punching technique. it helps with hand speed, footwork, discipline and defense. if you can afford it (money and timewise), i'd say go for it. but first make sure they are training you to fight and not training you for fitness.

You will gradually progress into classes, don't think about it. Always remain humble and you will learn faster. Just tell them you wish to be a fighter, they will train you differently and put more effort into you. As for the striking style I cannot answer for sure as mma striking is constantly evolving and we don't really know what is best.

I just started training again recently and I have found success with my unorthodox point style dutch muay thai where I keep it on the outside with a erratic striking pace. I often counter strike but love to surprise my partner with a very unexpected technical blitz. It depends on your body style though, one size does not fit all. I'm not saying I'm good or anything, I need a lot of work, especially in the pocket-I would be in trouble in close quarters street fight.
