    MMA Discussion Thread

    Well I guess its time to get this thread started and back on track again especially now that the new season of The Ultimate Fighter has started.

    Let me start off by asking if anybody seen UFC 135? I thought it was a decent card and was impressed by Jon Jones yet again. Hopefully he'll destroy Rashad as well and keep the belt. Anyways, just thought I'd get the ball rolling with a small post.

    I caught 135 and I gotta say that I personally thought the fights weren't that exciting. Barring that awesome armbar attempt by Mark Hunt, I thought the fights were rather boring. Of course I'm crestfallen that my boy Hughes lost and I think he should hang it up.

    On the Jones fight, he completely dominated Wampage but I mostly saw Jones stand behind his reach and didn't really stay in the pocket with Wampage. I understand that it would've been stupid of Jones to do such but with all the trash talk coming from both guys, I expected Jones to knock out Wampage and not submit him. After all Sakuraba already subbed Wampage back in the Pride days.

    I thought the fights were pretty average too. Nothing exciting at all stood out. After all of Rampage's trash talking, I was hoping he was going to back it up and at least attempt to smash the shit out of Jones, but he wasn't forthcoming. Spewing to see Hughes get KO'd right in the dying seconds of the first round as well. He started off ok...

    I caught 135 and was disapointed by the way Rampage and Jones turned out. I really wanted to see what jones' chin is really like and how he would of reacted to rampage connecting on him. As far as the other fights go I was impressed with how easily Nate diaz was able to take Gomi and i would like for him to try and make a run at the title to see how he would do. Dissapointed in what happened to Matt hughes and looks like its time to retire. Travis Browne didnt look impressive at all and proly wont get past mid level heavy weights and the Mark Hunt Ben Rothwell fight looked like both of those guys really need to work on cardio because they were both basically gone after the 1st round.


    Here is your Card for UFC 136. Lets try and who can predict the out come of the most matches for fun. but please say what round and how to make it a little more challanging.

    Main Card
    Lightweight Championship bout: Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard (Edgar by decision)
    Featherweight Championship bout: Josť Aldo vs. Kenny Florian (aldo by 3rd rnd KO/TKO)
    Middleweight bout: Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann (Chael Sonnen by decision)
    Heavyweight bout: Dave Herman vs. Mike Russow (Herman by decision)
    Lightweight bout: Joe Lauzon vs. Melvin Gullard (Gullard 1st rnd KO/TKO)

    Preliminary card
    Middleweight bout: Demian Maia vs. Jorge Santiago (Maia by 2nd rnd submission)
    Lightweight bout: Anthony Pettis vs. Jeremy Stephens (Pettis by 1st rnd KO/TKO)

    What do you guys think?

    I agree with you on all the winners but I changed just a few of the rounds in which I think they'll get the win.

    Jones looked great against Rampage, as expected, and I'm a fan of Mark Hunt, from K-1 and Pride days, so it's good to seem have some success. The post fight press-conference was hilarious.

    Jones did look good against Rampage. Then old Rashad had to come in the ring and 'ruin Jones moment twice'...haha. Jones might be the real deal and be able to defend the belt more than once. Bring on Silva vs Jones.

    Almost forgot about Saturday

    Cruz by UD
    Barry by KO
    Wiman by sub.
    and Brenneman by UD

    Mark it!!

    Update: The prelims are over and every fight had a stoppage!! Doubt the main card will have the same results but Vs. cards are keeping their reputation of always being exciting. I remember Jones was the poster-boy of the first couple/few of the vs. cards...

    Think I'm gonna start calling him Dominick St. Pierre.

    I know I didn't post my picks here, so this could be met with skepticism, but I'm involved in the ranking of a King Of Predictions app on my iPhone where you pick the winners and methods on all the fight cards across all organisations. The following were my picks for today's card...
    Cruz by decision
    Struve by submission in the 2nd
    Johnson by KO/TKO in 2nd
    Wiman by decision.
    I only dropped 1 single point in those picks, Rumble's round, best result I've had to date. If I only I had fucking $$$ on those picks lol.

    It was a pretty solid card, I'm sure there will be a replay sometime soon.

    I seen all of the fights after and have to say the prelims were good. I'm also wondering if Pat Barry ever spends anytime training on submission defense. I feel bad for the guy because he does have the skills to be doing better than he has been lately.

    Had pins in his thumb after fucking it up in the fight with Tito and won't be ready in time. As much as I'd like to say this is Rashad ducking another fight, it must be kind of disappointing for him. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride... (except for once lol)
