I'm trying to track down a video I had forever that the link eventually went bad on. It was a collage of the pre Wand Rampage two talk up followed by the fight highlights shot put together in an epic way with an eventual multi color effect kicking on when Wand started lighting Rampage up with knees. I loved the video so much it even took me literally over a year to track down the song that was playing, which was Fat City by Muggs.

That song alone is incredible. Any help is much appreciated.

What is the referee supposed to do when he taps the fighter to let him know the fight is over after a submission? The referee seemed to pull Palhares and Shields apart for example and that looked dangerous maybe? If someone is cranking a hold like that how should a referee step in without causing more damage or was Mazzagatti correct?

The ref has explained to both fighters in the locker room that when he touches them to stop fighting. Full bore let go of everything the moment they come in. There is some leeway for heat of the moment stuff, but Palhares is a repeat offender and obviously isn't breaking when contacted.

It was really cool when BJ squeezed a dude's head and blood squirted everywhere. All three fights with Hughes were funny/great for different reasons. BJ also fitched the gently caress out of fitch for a round and a half.

dude was insanely good and it's a loving shame he was just a fat, rich, & lazy rear end in a top hat because he could have cleared out 2+ divisions with ease. This is a guy that had a heavyweight bout with Machida. There's good reason he's a legend in the sport, and it's because there wasn't anyone like him.

I'm not a significant competitor, but I cut 9 pounds for my last judo tournament, and then used that weight cut to maintain weight for a bjj tournament two weeks later. Granted, part of why I did that cut was to see what it was like and if I could do it.

And what was your response? Will you be doing it again?

So I read that at the night before UFC 194 weigh-ins, fighters on average weighed 5% over their weight class. At previous events, fighters averaged 8% over their weigh-in weight the night before weigh-ins. Meaning that due to the new IV ban, fighters are cutting less weight overnight.

My question is, does this mean that they're shedding muscle for a lower in-cage weight and thus having to cut less, or are they pre-cutting more fluids and staying the same weight after rehydrating?

In the case of Chris Weidman, he didn't drink at all between camps and was smaller in general before camp even began as a result. I can't say for other fighters.

Ok now I'm curious to watch the most lopsided judging ever. Has any judge in recent history given out a 10-7 round without points being deducted for fouls?

Maia/Nelson is one of the most lopsided decisions I can think of in the UFC. Two judges scored it 30-25 and the other 30-26.

Oct 13, 2005



Never watched Franklin/Loisau watching now.

Edit: it was definitely a lopsided fight. I figure Franklin would have finished it if he hadn't broke his hand.


Sonnen/Silva 1 was also a very lopsided fight with multiple 10-8s in favor of the loser.

The best was when he moved from 170 to 185 and still missed weight because he got down to like 191 and then couldn't feel his legs

And then he gassed in like 45 seconds and got thoroughly grappled by vitor belfort

which lead to one of the best moments in a dana white blog, imo

We were discussing works and shoot fighting in the UFC thread, and I wondered if anyone had links to videos where a work turned into a shoot and it actually became a real fight in a pro wrestling org. Like is there a video of the hulkster actually throwing down with someone, or is that something that happens more at minor league type stuff?

Schenck v. U.S. posted:

In Pancrase they didn't have wraps or gloves and it was illegal to strike the head with a closed fist, but open-hand slaps were legal. Bas Rutten figured out that with an open hand he could still strike with the bony part of his wrist, and it was almost as good as punching. But that was a way to work around Pancrase's stupid rules, and not something you would do in any other context.

Pancrase was worked more often than not.

For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to read Ronda's awful book, and even when she's trying to talk up her mom, her mom sounds pretty abusive.

That's because she was. I don't think many people would consider it good child rearing to pounce on top of your pre-teen child and force them to defend from your continued assaults throughout each day. This does teach a child to be tough and to be a fighter, but it also turns them into Ronda Rousey.

The mount, ladies and gentlemen, is not useful in mma.

Mr. Nice!
Oct 13, 2005



I mean, i'm an idiot and that's well known, but saying that mount is useless in mma is categorically incorrect. Cf. 99% of mma fights where one fighter gains mount position. People escaping unscathed is the exception not the rule. Most people get hit pretty hard with strikes and/or put into position for a submission once someone has them mounted in the cage.

I didn't notice before that huge exaggerated step he did. Also, that blow while Bisping was on the ground isn't as fun as it used to be: blows that so clearly damage the brain I find hard to watch these days.

The huge exaggerated step is actually an inside leg kick and one of Danís setups for the BRH.

I want to say this was still a time in the world where mixed martial arts was still being explored. I canít recall if these shoots involved grappling, but the secret to beating a guy like butterbean is stay way outside and take him down.

e: yeah, the first is just pure boxing and, to answer your question, the result of Vince's hubris. In the second video I posted, Genki Sudo is an actual fighter and you can see how he deals with Butterbean four years later.

Watching Butterbean KO Gunn again this morning reminded me of Tim Sylvia vs Ray Mercer. Sylvia and Mercer originally agreed to a boxing match, but because Sylvia was obviously not a boxer, the athletic commission wouldn't sanction it. They would sanction it as an MMA match, though, as boxer vs MMA fighter was common enough. Sylvia and Mercer had a gentleman's agreement that they would fight a boxing match inside the cage. Sylvia then reneged and opened the fight with a low kick which disappointed Ray.
