Please man... for Silva, Jones and especially GSP dont believe any fight hype (that somebody can give them even a "good fight")... there is nobody out there who has a chance, its ZERO chance... especially against GSP because of his overwhelming wrestling... he just takes anybody down and beats you, then feels bad for you and gives you a chance to not look like a complete noob by not taking you down and letting you throw some weakass punch

GSP definitely outclassed/out positioned Diaz.....

- funny part is....Diaz did more damage to GSP ( from hitting him in the 3rd round) then all of the "position control/ elbow strikes/takedowns" from GSP.



- I sure hope MMA changes it's scoring system/essence of the sport.....example: Condit should have won....GSP might actually fight.

- Time Limits and Takedown points are ruining the sport....True Vale Tudo is about stopping your opponent.

- I remember watching open weight fights between great wrestlers vs great BJJ players in the beginning of American MMA ( early 90's)....

the bigger guys would take down their opponent at will and control position and do some damage from the mount position...

but they would still end up losing by being caught in a submission from a smaller BJJ fighter. ( the wrestler eventually made a mistake or gassed out)

- The funny part is...they created time limits to speed up action/make it possible for PPV to show the whole event.....but point fighting and the lack of urgency to finish makes it pointless.

- 2 men Fighting until the other one quits/can't fight/can't defend themselves....that's the essence of MMA/ultimate fighting/Vale tudo....scoring imaginary "signifigant strikes" and takedown points is turrable.

Thats something that is ****ing retarded with theses MMA stats.Look back a page and B-Low posted the stats where GSP had something like 80 "Significant Strikes" what? When was there any significant strikes in that entire fight by either fighter?Shit is stupid.

No. Takedowns score in Greco-Roman, freestyle wrestling, Sambo, judo, BJJ, etc..., but you want to say they shouldn't score in MMA for no reason? If you want to say they should score less, then OK, I'll agree, but worth 0? Nah. When a person gets a takedown, then they end up in control, which is part of the scoring criteria, so do you want to do away with control, also? Also, I'll point out that the judges gave the 3rd round to Condit even though he was taken down 4 times and had 0 takedowns himself. I find it odd that many people seem to blame just the wrestler. What about the guy on bottom who isn't doing a damn thing?

They should allow knees to a downed opponent. That gives wrestlers another tool whenever their opponent tries to turtle up and goes into defense mode.

Also, GSP said that Nick was hard to hit, hard to control and had a really awkward style of BJJ that was really difficult to prepare for, but I guess everyone here complaining would go and sub Nick Diaz with ease, right?

All I want is the 10 minute first round and yellow cards.

**** no to yellow cards. Watching some of those shitty Japanese refs hand out yellow cards like they were candy was a disgrace. A fighter is losing 10% of his purse for them. I don't like refs having the power to take away money from a fighter (imagine someone like Dan Miragliotta screwing some fighters out of money). Why have yellow cards when the ref can just give warnings and/or just do quicker stand ups?

10 minute first round? Wouldn't that just make people complain more about wrestling? Some refs let guys get away with doing the minimum on the ground so a guy could possibly stretch 1 takedown into a 10 minute humpfest. First, I'd like to see more consistency out of the refs and for them to get better training.

They need to eliminate elbows on the ground. It makes it more difficult for wrestlers to stall, and opens them up to more submissions when they posture to strike with the hands.

Elbows on the ground very rarely finish opponents, and often lead to cuts that stop the fight prematurely.

Bones frowns at this idea.

How bout something completely left field, like injury time in soccer, if there is a period of little to no action and the ref makes the fighters stand up, that time is added back to the the end of the round. Dunno, just thinking out of the square.

Lol that's something lot of Jon Jones haters wanted(not that you are one). Elbows are great for rocking the opponent and allowing you to advance position, they are quick and in fact do more damage than weakass hammerfists. Some use it just to cut and stop the fight, but most use it to finish.

There need to be more damaging moves, not less. Knees to a downed opponent should be legal, they are not much different than headkicks or knees from the clinch. Too many times have I seen someone get rocked, then just put his hand on the ground to avoid kicks/knees. While his opponent basically has to close in and only throw punches.

elbows allow cuts more easily which is why it helps wrestlers, they should revise the rule of knees to a grounded opponents head where in its legal if he is not on both knees, the rule where you cant knee just because the dude is using his fingers or hands to touch the mat is lame and just bending the rules of a grounded opponent. While Im not for soccer kicks and head stomps, I dislike the elbows also due to the cuts they create which leads to ref stoppages due to bleeding.

Cain vs Bigfoot I was a perfect example of how cuts can ruin a fight (not saying Bigfoot would have won), but that cut on around his nose area just bleed into his eyes and he had to fight literally blind and got masscared for it. That's the only reason why I'm not a big fan of elbows, they are extremely nasty when pulled off tho.

Plus why would a fighter want to win via cut anyway? The fans don't want to see it nor do I think any fighter wants to win via cutting someone it leaves to many questions and we don't know what could have happend.

Ok fair enough lower the scoring but than why not award fighters points for getting up when someones trying to control them on the ground as well? Would that not also be considered "control" since your actually choosing where the fight goes? Thats a part of wrestling as well is it not to get out from being on the bottom. I just think something needs to be done because atm people with a wrestling base are way to heavily favoured when it comes to judging and BJJ guys are completely raped by the scoring system and strikers to a lesser degree.
