    Ben Askren has retired. Hip replacement will do that.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    I know he would have made good money for his three fights, and he's the sort of fighter that knows the value of selling a fight so his fights were bigger deals than they would have been if he was just some typical MMA personality.

    But he has to be kicking himself over ever coming to the UFC. Outside the UFC he was that guy that could possibly beat the UFC WW Division, but then he gets dumped on his head and almost beaten into an unconscious mess within like 30 seconds of his first fight by Lawler and that set the tone for his whole brief UFC run.

    He was always a pure wrestler and not much more. Going to the UFC just exposed it on the biggest stage. It was bound to happen regardless of where he was fighting. Also, at 35 his body is shot to shit from wrestling for 30 years.

    I can see Conor running through Cerrone if he's focused. Donald doesn't like pressure, and Conors mind for fighting and his accuracy will give Donald fits.

    Jon Jones gonna Jon Jones. He never learns. But he'll probably do some press conference where he cries and claims he'll be a better man again, but he never changes.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    Rewatching a few fights lately.

    I forgot just how good Shogun was doing in the second Hendo fight. He was dominating that fight, dropping Hendo and controlling everything, then got hit with one bomb and its all over.

    Rory Mac really had nothing to offer Gegard in their Champ v Champ fight.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    I really think Shogun was still in that fight and his two losses to Hendo are simultaneously questionable and yet dominating at the same time? It's so fucking weird. I've never felt so annoyed at two Shogun losses.

    K-1 just held their annual K'Festa event and shit was stacked. Some sick Kickboxing fights here and fully recommend checking out the grand prix tournament it had. Alot of the fights on the card were pretty good and worth checking out if you want to kill time. Also a pretty good way to get into K-1 if you haven't watched before or in a while.

    Spoiler:



    As for MMA, I haven't watched much old fights recently but I have watched some old Carlos Condit. That dude has a serious catalogue of fights. Supremely underrated fighter who unfortunately never got to hold the main belt. Should've though.

    Looks like a UFC PPV is happening in two weeks from an undisclosed location. Think it's an island? I don't know.


    Card is solid but this idea is beyond moronic.

    MMA on an island sounds like something out of a movie. Will Tong Po be fighting?

    I've been wary of Dana White for a few years now...but, this latest situation with the island has pushed him definitively over the fence, into the territory of bonafide crazy person.

    Been watching a lot of random UFC fights that have been on ESPN as of late. Just throwing out there, I swear Condit beat Lawler at UFC 195.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    I don’t know if I can really be objective about Lawler v Condit, it was a close fight from memory. But I was so into Robbie being UFC Champ and just having war after war. Most entertaining UFC Champ ever.

    The end of the fourth round between Lawler and Rory with both of them covered in blood just staring at each other is one of the most iconic moments in MMA, and also a good example for why some people think it’s too barbaric.

    I think Condit won 1, 3 and 4 iirc. I haven't watched it in ages though. That 5th round is crazy. Condit is one of my favourite fighters so I am a tad biased, I guess. Big fan of Robbie as well though. It sucks this happened to Condit because it very clearly caused him to lose motivation in general.

    Might do a few review threads over the next couple of days to drum up discussion. Doubt everyone here has fight pass but a rewatch thread would be cool for some events. Going to rewatch some PRIDE starting with Shockwave 2002.

    I'm in a similar boat about MMA reviews. Been thinking about doing every season of the Ultimate Fighter. 1 through to 27
