This might be a dumb question, but if Overeem and Fedor are in the same fed, and Overeem is the champ, why is Fedor ranked higher?

WELCOME TO PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING~!


please refer to Mass Transit Incident and also New Jack attempting to murder Vic Grimes during a match.

quote:

On March 12, 2000, New Jack (legitimately) suffered brain damage and was temporarily blinded in his right eye, when he and his opponent, Vic Grimes, fell off a balcony, missed the tables that were supposed to absorb the force of their fall and landed on the concrete floor (with Grimes landing on New Jack's head) at Living Dangerously 2000. In a rematch between the two in Xtreme Pro Wrestling (XPW), New Jack threw Grimes from a scaffold, with Grimes plummeting around 40 feet into the ring. The stunt did not work out as planned, as Grimes only landed on one of the twelve tables that were intended to break his fall and ended up dislocating his ankle on the ring rope. In the 2005 documentary Forever Hardcore, New Jack claimed that he had intentionally thrown Grimes too hard in the hopes that he would hit the ring post and for Grimes to be injured or killed, but under further evaluation Grimes can be seen noticeably pushing off the scaffold with his foot which is one of the main factors leading to the botch. Also in the interview, he said that the Living Dangerously accident was his own fault for prematurely pulling Grimes down from the scaffold. Jack has said that Grimes had been going around telling the locker room that he hurt New Jack, until Jack replied by saying "I hurt me."

With it being known that there were early Pancrase fights that were worked, were there any fights in Pride that were works or suspected of being as such?

While I see dives are discussed above, I mean were there any fights where both parties knew in advance who was coming out on top? I'd be kinda surprised if CroCop knew guys were throwing fights for him.

Have there been any notable suicides in MMA? The Jovan Belcher story has got a lot of people talking about the correlation between traumatic brain injury and mental health again, (I don't follow football so I don't know many specifics on that argument in relation to the NFL, but it made me think about my favorite sport in which people punch-kick one another's heads a lot.)

i know the positionings and what the purpose of each one is, and i have a general strong understanding of the ground game, ie what techniques are used from an offensive standpoint and defensive. i have the basics understood, but if theres more that i should know about i'd be happy to know as much as possible

Last time I cut weight I did absolutely nothing until two days before. Two days before, I stopped eating carbs and started drinking two gallons of water per day. The day of, I got up at 8am, went to the gym and worked out for an hour and a half (thus sweating a great deal), ate nothing and drank only 16 ounces of green tea over the course of the day, and then weighed in at 7pm at 187. Then I went home and ate two bagels and two boxes of mac and cheese and three bags of reese pieces and a gallon of pedialyte, went to bed, got up in the morning and had a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and rocked up to the tournament at around 202.

Why do they still use a ring for Japanese MMA? Just tradition?

mma was originally seen as a pro wrestling offshoot there and i guess they never really felt any need or notion to switch to a cage. pancrase was in a ring, rings was in a ring, uwfi was in a ring, pride (never die) was in a ring.

nobody was exempt from inokiism, not even jushin liger who was booked in a shoot fight against minoru suzuki, and you can visibly see it on both mens faces they don't want to do this fight. liger suspiciously gives up his neck as soon as possible but you cant blame him

Why do people hate Don King? I'm not saying there aren't a million reasons, I just legit don't know. He's been the subject of parody and scorn since Rocky V all the way back in 1990 but apparently he was still working with Tyson and stuff well after that. So if he was a crook and everybody knew it, why were they hiring him so he could rip them off?

oh boy
