Faber v.s. Pulver...can't wait
Like the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
I used to watch it religiously, but have kind of drifted from it. I don't know many of the current fighters.
I thought it was probably something along those lines.
Not my cup of tea.
Im still upset that boxing is irrelevant now.
yup i remember you and i talkin about UFC and you said you didn't like to see people getting kicked in the face n his teeth flying out like chicklettes
it hasn't, there are no big name fighters any more so no one follows it, i like watching the old fights though
I'm taping it. I would have watched it live but I'm still pissed at that Kimbo fight from last night...And my boy Baroni lost
I am so glad Baroni lost.
He is a *** clown if there ever was one.
that event was afwul. the Robbie Lawler fight was good but it got stopped on a bs call. so by default the best fight of the night was the the Gina fight. war pulver even though i really don't care for the little guys unless one is named Gomi or BJ Penn.
EDIT: Faber reminds me of sunshine from Remember the Titans.
oh man that was great, the Yoshiro Maeda Vs. Miguel Torres fight was great. I can't wait for Pulver - Faber 2
my husband is watching it right now.
Is Penn going to stay "little"? Sounds like he wants GSP after the Sherk fight.
Pissed because you think the ref stopped the fight too early or because you think that Kimbo tapped out?
I don't think CBS wanted James' ear falling off on national TV. Kimbo was gonna continue to attack his ear if the ref didn't stop the fight.
I hope he fights gsp again. he beat the crap out of gsp in round one and than gsp layed n prayed penn for the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Penn is redeticated to mma and taking it seriously now. If they fight he will beat gsp.
anyone watching the birthday cake bake off?
If Kimbo ever steps in the cage with a real MMA fighter he wont last one round. Heck even Brock Lesner would destroy him. Kimbo has no ground game at all. He nothing more than a Tank Abbot clone. And that style just will not cut it today.
James Thompson is a "real MMA" fighter. James fought Fedor's brother and was in Pride several times. Same thing with Tank. He is a "real MMA" fighter.
I have followed Kimbo since his first fight on Youtube vs that guy named "Bird". Its the fight where Bird's eye almost falls off. Kimbo then had several backyard fights after that and then encountered Sean Gannon. Sean beat him b/c Sean was an amateur MMA fighter. I think Kimbo realized that he had to improve his overall fighting (not just boxing it out with guys), thus he got with Bas.
I'm not saying Kimbo is ready for Fedor, Cro Crop, AA, Randy, etc. He's just a beginner in MMA, he even stated it himself. He's got a lot to learn (ju-jitsu, kick boxing, etc), but he sure is entertaining to watch....
That is true. But he is a beginner at the age of 34. He has a long way to go to be a legitimate contender for a belt. Brock Lesner is light years a head of him because he has a ground game. James Thompson is an MMA fighter but he isnt very good. Tank is over the hill. In his prime I think Tank would beat Kimbo. I don't blame Kimbo for doing what he is doing. He is probably making more money than he ever has. The entire fight card was a joke except for the Carano fight. EliteXE has a long way to go before they can compete with UFC or even WEC.
