Oozing machismo

How did I miss that Oscar de la Hoya is starting his own MMA company and he's trying to get Chuck Liddell vs Tito Ortiz going.

This seems incredibly ill advised on so many levels.

plz remember that it was ~ME~ who told you that everything you like is actually really not good, because I knew all along.


Chuck and Tito have been trying to get another fight booked for forever. UFC won't do it, it seems Bellator won't do it, so the only realistic options left are "loving off to RIZIN" or "other rich celeb starts company just to have the fight"

This is probably a funnier option than them doing it in RIZIN, so I'm fine with it

rizin give much less of a poo poo than the others, they're a tv show and the audience doesn't know or care about two old perverts

I'm sure they could fit them in on the New Years freakshow card, but I doubt very much they'd pay the amount of money that Chuck and Tito would want.

do you mean this in the good way or the bad way? he got totally poo poo on when he lost his debut but now that he's showing why he was hyped up before he'd even fought a single fight he looks like an amazing prospect

Oh yeah, I meant what you expect from Aaron Pico now that he's winning. Forgot about his ignominious debut for some reason.

How'd they swing elbows allowed for this? I thought this was a big deal to be on TV in Japan.

Venator FC, known mainly for an amusing card a few years back where multiple mentally ill foreigners got beat up and also an amusing brawl involving the owner of the promotion inside the cage sometimes before is streaming live from Italy. The quality is fine but the audio is like half a minute late of the picture so who knows what is up

https://venatorfc.com/venator-iv/

first fight already featured a fat LHW with a full-back tattoo of the German Imperial Eagle clutching an Iron Cross, which ended with him getting pummeled to poo poo in about 45 seconds.

Looks like Caveman called it off quite sensibly because he eye was hosed, but all in all another good one on the Michael Page highlight reel on the way to never fighting a relevant opponent I guess

Look at his chest at the start and finish of the clip. He started pouring blood after that punch, too.

Rory/Mousasi should be a really fun fight. I don't think Macdonald will be too undersized, either.
