If Shogun doesn't do his airplane arm thing at least 3 times in his rematch with Hendo I'll change my forum name to what ever -atom- and the SASMMA hivemind wants. Book it, nerds.

Also, let's keep it MMA related and not TOO vulgar.

Your forum bets are almost as bad as mine. When I make the GDT for that card we should all come up with a suitable alternative since that card isn't good to discuss the merits of the fights.

I was worried about Hendo after the recent ruling, but then I remembered he signed a 6 fight deal in Jan..

quote:

Henderson stopped using TRT approximately two months prior to his UFC 161 fight against Rashad Evans because the Manitoba Combative Sports Commission did not grant any TUEs. Henderson lost the fight via split decision.

And while he may not be in agreement with the NAC's ruling, Henderson said he will not walk away from the sport because of it. After all, the 43-year-old recently signed a new six-fight contract with the UFC.

"I'll deal with the changes after [the Shogun fight]," he said.

But without TRT he'll shrivel up and die! Dan "Hollywood" Henderson no! It isn't worth it!

6 fight deal or no six fight deal, it wouldn't have surprised me if Hendo retired after the Shogun fight regardless of TRT being legal or not. Frankly he probably should have retired after the first Shogun fight.

I really don't like the shogun fight for hendo. If he chose to be a wrestlyman rather than stand and trade I could see him beating shogun, but he looks like his chin is going and he's lost a good half beat of speed.

Well, he was supposed to fight Jones at 151 so I think sticking around for a championship fight was the right idea, and taking the Machida fight wasn't a terrible idea. It's everything after that which is doing more harm than good.

Probably because he's 60 years old and his back is permanently hosed and he's an old wrestler so he has no knees anymore.

Mark Hunt really needs a handler to manage his social media. Preferably this handler would be appointed by the state and also manage the rest of his life.

can you elaborate on what you find funny and good about this? it kind of feels cringey to me because it reeks of trying too hard to hype yourself up way over the position you're in in the division. i do agree that it's well made technically.
