He also said that the fight before that last one, his medical bills ended up being higher than what he was paid. So he was not fighting in protest.

mobn was banned because he toxx'ed himself to lose weight, and then half-way through the toxx, he didn't lose any weight, and claimed that he had a pimple on his thigh, and so he could not work out or it would get infected.

e: and he posted pictures of his wife that makes Dos Santos's wife look like a super model by comparison.

I was watching Mayweather school a ginger today when I noticed that boxing matches (30-36 min.) are longer than MMA fights (15-25). Is there a reason for this?

Because they are different sports. Football and Basketball have different times as well.

Casual MMA fan question: why exactly did John Fitch get cut from UFC?

You get to stay in the UFC if you are either winning or exciting. In Jon Fitch's last 4 fights in the UFC he was one win, two losses, one draw. That one win is over someone who is 3-3 (in the UFC). Fitch was almost never exciting.

Random question, I made a bet with my friend that steroids help you if you train or not. I remember reading here on PSP about 4-6 months ago about this study that a group doing no exercise gained 7 pounds of muscle vs the control group. I've googled my hardest, but I can't find that study anymore. Anyone have a link?

I specifically remember someone making a joke that the steroid would be perfect for Rampage Jackson.

You might have better luck talking to Shiny sides in the A/T thread, but the biggest benefit of roids for training is increased energy levels and quick healing.

I am thinking of this one specific study, the group taking the steroids gained muscle, and the control group didn't. And both groups didn't work out.

I had it before and couldn't find it, but I just put "steroid study" into google and it popped up first result.

I hear that boxing is corrupt. In what ways?

This is not a sarcastic post; I am literally ignorant about all things boxing.

Champions are protected from any fighters that pose a real threat to them.

Champions will fight 20-0 fighters, so that it looks like they are being challenged. When in fact the 20-0 fighter has only beat up cans, and posed no threat at all to the champion.

Why do fighters paw at one another during stand-up? Is it to establish reach? Or to see if an opponent is going to check your hand motion?

They are trying to poke their opponent's eye.

I wish the ref would deduct a point every time a fighter extends their hand with their hand open.

Is there any unified mma rules concerning manipulating the ears? No small joint manipulation, no fish hooking. But could someone grab your ear and pull?

It's real funny to think that the #3 light heavyweight murdered a middling lightweight fighter.

And lost to a middling lightweight fighter too. Rich Clementi was 169, Rumble was 177.5.

I thought this was the combat sports thread. Can someone explain what a shoot and work is?

Fozzy The Bear
Sep 27, 2009


UFC thread had the answers

fatherdog posted:

"Shoot" and "work" are prowrestling terms. A "work" or "worked match" is a predetermined pro-wrestling match. A "shoot" is a real fight. To "shoot" on someone means to break script and go after them in a worked match/situation.

Pancrase as an organization started out as a branchoff of a stiff-styled prowrestling organization, with the concept of doing "shoot fighting". It's generally thought that the early cards were mostly stiff works, with one or two shoots per show, and eventually as MMA became a popular sport in it's own right in Japan it transitioned to being just another mma org.

does boxing gently caress up your brain more than football?

110 out of 111 NFL brains have CTE.
Earlier study said 87 of 91 have CTE.

I can't find any good numbers for boxing. MMA is too new to get good numbers.
