Going to watch TUF this season. The female fighters/trainers provide for a much better narrative. Not a big fan of the 135lb men's division though.

F*ck off d*ck cheese.

Yes, you're not -- that's why you need to keep your mouth shut. Easier said than done. Lol, go train & do all those things you suggested.

Comparing a basketball situation & an MMA situation is ridiculous. The ability to think clearly during a basketball game is totally different from when you're fighting. But what do I know? You're the expert:)

one thing's for sure... they're sure as hell not making mir's life very easy.

this fight and his last three are all against very dangerous, top five-type opponents. mir is top ten to me... just not quite at that level anymore.


anyway, i'm glad they're keeping the reem for at least one more fight. even when he loses, he dominates fights and is entertaining. exactly the stuff you want from a HW....

^Oh the love for Mir. <3

I think it got to him when Lesnar retired. The motivation & the drive -- diminished. I know deep down that he wanted to get another shot at Brock. Notice how he came in out of shape in the JDS, fight? (That was when Brock retired months before that fight.) He says it was the kids or the training environment, but for me, I think that's just one of the little reasons.

@lakersgold,
i wouldn't be surprised if that was true.

i also think mir's been carrying too much weight for awhile, slowing him down everywhere, especially in the standup. but now that he's at jackson's, i think he's pretty-much guaranteed to make improvements across the board. sounds like his cardio already took a big leap, just that he didn't have opportunity to show it. but they will surely work on his wrestling, grappling and standup. and he cannot afford to keep getting pushed to the fence and hammered on, but jackson, winklejohn and crew are probably the best in the world at working on such problems.


i'm actually pretty worried about my boy cain. junior is guaranteed to have some new techniques specially-designed to exploit cain's game...

Do you realize how much of a f*ckstick you come across as?
Why are you in this thread if you don't want people talking about it? How about you shut your trap and don't make any comments on the sport at all? Only fair, since you're not competing professionally and all.

No, its not. MMA and basketball are both sports. As a viewer, we can see things the fighter and players can't. As a viewer, I can comment. I don't have to be an expert to say, "he should have done this", or, "why did he do that?".

And, I did train; boxing. I do know a thing or two about it. I have a number of amateur fights. So yes, I will comment.


Honestly, what is wrong with ISH these days guys? Bunch of pretentious pricks like this guy here, and Oldskool drawing far too much from basic posts.
