What's the content like?

Worth it?

I'm hoping they have their really old events uploaded.

It's got most of the old UFC events, I think the early Pride ones, some Strikeforce, WEC and a lot of regional stuff including Invicta and I think Pancrase as far as I remember. Then they have all those behind the scenes stuff and TUF if you're in to that, as well as EBI if you're in to grappling.

I think it's worth it at $9 a month, since that's like a meal at KFC for a month of convenient martial arts content, but obviously if you're not in to MMA then it's probably not the best thing for you. I normally spend a few hours watching the collections they put up on the weekend and then a few random fights while I'm eating. I've got a few mates that fight on one of the regional Australian promotions that is partnered with Fight Pass so it's really great that I can watch those fights for free instead of having to pay for the PPV.

Also if you're in to it, a lot of the old entrance songs are redubbed.

I mean if you wanted the original entrances, they're redubbed with generic rock and rap because of copyright stuff. But it does have like Jon Jones with "I'm Coming Home" for his return at UFC 197, which I thought was a pretty big part of the event, and the smaller Australian promotion I watch on there keeps their songs too, so I'm not sure what the rules are.

Also here's a screenshot of the promotions on the page.

Alright, I'm making it official. Bear witness as I make this proclamation: I want to someday be the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world. That's the goal I'm setting for myself and will work towards starting today.

I know this probably sounds ridiculous, but all my life I've never once really challenged myself. I've never once set a goal and then worked at it until I had accomplished it or failed beyond all attempts. I've never even really ever wanted anything other than to not be alone before in my life. I've never had any self esteem, but sometimes I know that I'm better than I give myself credit for, and that possibly if I just believed in myself I could actually accomplish something.

I'm not good with people, or at least, interacting with them sends me into a state of anxiety and almost OCD-like worry that lasts long after the interaction has ended. I feel stuck, limited by my neuroses, but this is something I know I can do. Or perhaps to put it more accurately, I know I can try to do.

I have a realistic picture of how this is going to go. This is going to be a war against myself with many many battles, and I'm not going to win them all, but I swear to myself that I'm going to win the war. I swore that the moment my dad told me that if I went boxing all the black guys would beat me up and that I stood no chance against any of them. He wanted me to stay at home, like he always does. I realized then that he had failed in his responsibility as a parent to instill his child with self confidence and many of the life experiences that usually build that confidence. I determined that as an adult I was going to take that responsibility back into my own hands. It's a difficult task given what little self esteem I have to work with but I think I'm up to it. I didn't for a long time, but after seeing how delusional people are on /r9k/ and elsewhere on the chans, I realized that I've been just as delusional.

I'm using this thread because I know I need peer pressure to make myself do anything. I'm going to be reporting in periodically with progress reports.
Current stats:
5'11.5''
~140lbs
Can't run a mile without having to walk
Can barely do 30 pushups and a 45 second plank

My first step will be to start going for runs before work every morning and doing some light workouts on the heavy bag, mainly focusing on form in the evenings.

This thread is pure gold, fucking A to everyone who's contributed because I've gotten a lot of good stuff from this thread.

Not OP but oddly enough I'm in a similar situation in which I'm looking to join a boxing gym in September. I work out at home so over the last few months I've been making my workouts more regular and adding in 30 mins of cardio daily. On top of that I started jogging last week and I hope to incorporate that 2-3 times per week (first jogging sesh murked my legs / lower back, but yesterday's run doesn't seem to have any lingering effects today)

My main reason for joining is because I have always wanted to learn a discipline and I feel like I need that sort of structure in my life (I'd also like to beat people up and win a title belt eventually). I'm also not the best at team sports so something individualized like this is very appealing to me.

I like the idea of practising a few different techniques to get comfortable with them, any good YouTube links I can check out??

I'll def have to look into the daily journal

Good luck and SLAYER to anyone trying to get their shit togeather

Is this real? How many fighters are there roughly? Are there weight divisions? Are the rules any different? Do they fight mainstream fighter?

I really wonder how the soccer mom types react to this. When you want MMA to be banned because of its sheer masculine brutality but you also want people with disabilities to be included in everything... how do you react to this??

Pretty sure they just fight in their normal divisions. There was a guy with like a stump for an arm that won a title in a smaller promotion a few years ago, a guy with down syndrome that fought an amateur fight and had a news story on him and I don't know if he's actually disabled, but there's a really short guy in I think Bellator that fought in the 135lb division.

What else would you expect someone to do against a dangerous man with one hit knockout power. Stand and bang? Well gee whiz, in that case, why the fuck didn't Holly Holm jump into Ronda's guard? The reason he did it was because he was trying to win the fucking fight. And that round 3 was EXTREMELY dominant, it reminded me of Hunt's fight against Stipe Miocic where the only reason it went for another round was because the ref failed to stop it. I did love how people cheered Brock's takedowns, but booed DC for doing the same thing against a man considered by many to be the best fighter ever.

McGregor vs Diaz 2 is pretty much confirmed for UFC 200. How do people feel about it? Do you think McGregor will fair much better if he doesn't gas? Or will Nate on a full training camp lead to a dominating victory for him?

There's also talk of Velasquez vs Browne and Dos Anjos vs Alverez. Would a main card with those 3 fights be big enough for 200?

>The owners of the UFC are in advanced talks to sell the business, sources told ESPN.com.

>At least four bidders are believed to have submitted bids for the organization, including WME/IMG, China Media Capital, The Blackstone Group and Dalian Wanda Group. The winning bid, should things proceed, is expected to be for a valuation between $3.5 billion and $4 billion, multiple sources with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN.com.

>"As a private company, we don't discuss speculation or rumors related to our business," said Dave Sholler, vice president of public relations and athlete marketing for the UFC.

>Investment bank Goldman Sachs has been representing Zuffa LLC, which bought the UFC in 2001 for only $2 million. Sources with knowledge of the numbers presented to potential investors said that Goldman Sachs had represented UFC's last full year earnings in the $200 million to $250 million range, before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. A new television rights deal, which would begin in 2019, could add an additional $250 million in annual revenue to the bottom line, investors were advised.

>Lorenzo Fertitta, who with his brother Frank owned more than 80 percent of the business at last public acknowledgment, told CNN in December that the private company grossed about $600 million in revenue last year. Besides the Fertittas, who are each worth about $1.6 billion, according to Forbes, the company has two other minority investors: UFC president Dana White and the Abu Dhabi government, which, under its Flash Entertainment arm, bought a 10 percent stake in the business for an undisclosed sum in 2010.

>The leader in the bid to buy the biggest mixed martial arts business in the world is said to be Chinese-based conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group, sources said. Its chairman, Wang Jianlin, is the richest man in China, worth nearly $35 billion, according to Forbes Magazine.

>The company has slowly been getting into sports. Last year, Wanda bought a 20 percent stake in soccer superpower Atletico Madrid for a reported $48 million. In March, amid the FIFA scandal, the company agreed to sign on as a FIFA partner, the highest level of sponsorship, through 2030.

>Other bidders said to be in the mix are WME/IMG, which owns media properties and represents athletes, including Rousey, the former UFC bantamweight champion. Blackstone Group is also believed to be a bidder. A senior executive at the private equity firm, David Blitzer, owns a minority stake in the New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia 76ers and British soccer team Crystal Palace.

>Another bidder is state-backed investment firm China Media Capital, which in October beat out Dalian Wanda and national broadcaster CCTV to win the broadcast rights for the Chinese Super League, the highest level of soccer in the country. In December, CMC, with another Chinese investment group, Citic Capital, bought a 13 percent stake of British soccer team Manchester City for a reported $400 million. UFC executive vice president Garry Cook was CEO of Manchester City from 2008 to 2011.

IIRC they recently signed a $100 million deal with Fox which is what drove most of the $4 billion price tag as that was guaranteed income for whoever bought the promotion.

Dana owned 9% so cashed out $360 million dollars plus got a new stake in this company, plus he's already paid something like $15-20 million per year in bonuses and CEO salary. That Emirates prince who bought in $100 million for a 10% stake way back when just cashed out $400 million, he will probably kill many goats in celebration tonight.

Also, Fertitta's exit strategy was pretty sound. They took on as much risk as they can whereas these new owners have insane capital and connections to survive shit like new promotions popping up since UFC already laid all the hard groundwork getting regulators to allow MMA prize fighting in their states. When Dana first started UFC was illegal in almost every US state. Now any jackass with $100 million can show up and start a promotion, steal away top UFC fighters, use existing PPV network, shill via social media to save on advertising costs ect. Good time to get out

A bit general for this board, but I found something worth a read. Apparently, doctors have devised a new surgery for ACL tears that gets the ACL fixed in 6 - 8 weeks and an athlete back to training within three months. All preliminary, of course, but this could be huge for fighters in a few years when it's no longer considered experimental.

>On Wednesday, doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital announced that they have succeeded in reconnecting A.C.L.s in 10 patients using a novel technique.

>Their preliminary results at three months suggest that healing an original A.C.L. without the usual grafts may be a viable option in the future.

>In a preliminary study to assess safety, Dr. Martha Murray and her team at Boston Children’s Hospital performed standard reconstructions on 10 patients with A.C.L. tears and the experimental procedure, called bridge-enhanced A.C.L. repair, on 10 others.

>In the experimental technique, the surgeons placed a blood-soaked sponge between the ligament’s severed ends; the sponge acted as a bridge, helping the ligament grow back together over the next six to eight weeks.

>No participants in either group had ligaments that failed to reconnect, got an infection or had stiff knees.

>Three months after the operation, Mr. Peak, a doctoral candidate at Harvard School of Public Health, was back to running on the treadmill. This spring he will play ultimate Frisbee and soccer.

>However, repaired A.C.L.s have failed in the past. In the 1980’s, surgeons tried stitching torn A.C.L.s back together. The initial results were good, but five years later, less than half of those knees remained stable, Dr. Hannafin said.

Now I begin to wonder if he would've been allowed to compete in Pride FC since those fuckin ringside doctors were so hell bent on establishing vision from both eyes...

Remember that Wandy vs Cro Cop they had that motherfucker following their fingers, poking at his eye, lifting his swollen eyelid over n over for like 15 goddamned minutes. So if both eyes are that crucial to em, do they allow him to fight at all? Or make him get his eyeball fixed first?

Sugar Ray also didn't dodge the Army in WW2 and did his service unlike Ali who draft dodged, then tried to turn it into a civil rights thing when he would've never seen any combat and would just have given exhibitions to the soldiers. I don't hate Ali but he was the greatest shit talker and best at becoming famous, not the greatest fighter.
