Right. For the first time in a long time, GSP isn't gonna be fighting to win. He's gonna be fighting with the lone goal of NOT LOSING. He knows Hendricks can take him out within a split second, and I think that's gonna bring out a different kind of fight in him. It's gonna be a war.

I guess they are gonna be right one of these days.

Fedor eventually lost and Anderson eventually got caught while taunting.

Oldschool GSP was so exciting to watch, like a WW version of Aldo with wrestling, he used to throw lot of kicks/knees/judo flips. Now it's a lot more "refined" and methodical.

i’ve never been a particular fan of GSP, but his fights are fascinating to me. which i find exciting.

i don’t quite get why so many bloodsport fans like him, tho. i guess because of his earlier career.

I was right, except for the Cowboys part. lol

Chris Weidman: "You have no idea what is going to happen when you get into the Octagon. If you have any insecurities at all, [Anderson Silva] will expose that -- he's going to bring them out and make you pay. He'll put his hands down, he'll put his hands on his hips, he'll talk and make you feel like you don't belong in the Octagon with him. I knew what he was doing. I just had to remain mentally strong and confident. And that's what I did. I was prepared [for the clowning], but I did react. I was like, 'How dare you, you're doing this to me?' Are you joking? I had that attitude. I'm like, 'You're not even hitting me -- you're taunting and taunting. Hit me in the face, I don't care!' That was my attitude, but then it got to the point where I'm throwing punches until I land and crack him. And that's how I finished the fight."

Y'all can complain all you want. It's just his style of fighting now, it might not be that interesting to watch, but he's successful with it, right? It's one of the keys of fighting -- to not get hurt ... & If you're gonna complain about it & act like you know somethin' ... feel free to start your own MMA career and see how far you get

wow..... not a good look for him.


you know i just realised jones - overeem could be an interesting fight. both the same height, both start3d at LHW, wildly different styles, both a bit arrogant, both interesting personalities, both want to be HW champ.

WTF he seriously let himself go. Put down the donuts man.

I liked the younger, hungry, reserved Jones so much more, he turned into a more talkative, sensitive guy in past few years. That twitter and social media got into his head, he is like a teenage girl now.

Went from this...




To that guy in previous post.

It looks like someone photo-shopped Chuck's belly onto Jon Jones lol, that or Jonny is going for the Chuck look to get more fans.

Didnt Jones **** up his toe? Probably means he hasnt been training

Most fighters get out of shape when they dont have a fight lined up anyway.

Alot of fighters that fight in MW and LHW divisions reach the HW range when they are out of camp.

disagree w/ all of that. training is part of your life as a high-level fighter. squandering training time is letting others catch up to you, because MMA is constantly progressing and you’re scratching and clawing for the pay to do it in public.

fighters don’t typically get bigger because they’re letting themselves go. they’re bigger because they’re not dehydrating and not shedding muscle mass to reach weight.
