You need haters. Fellas if you got 20 haters, you need 40 of them motherfuckers. If there's any haters in here that don't have nobody to hate on, feel free to hate on me


New people should be required to take a video of themselves watching Lawler/Manhoef

I was so sure Robbie's leg was going to burst open like an overcooked sausage and then they simultaneously performed their party tricks and it was glorious.

Can we also make it a rule that the video needs to be linked when it's brought up because it never gets old?

Why make it a rule? Mods need to filter Lawler-Manhoef to that link.

Scott Smith vs Pete Sell is an all time great that no one ever talks about, but I'm always slightly reluctant to recommend it to new fans in case they don't yet appreciate how a liver shot works.

You've been here forever. How the hell had you avoided that fight? I'm genuinely curious.

I watched it live and I was bummed for Melvin, tbh.

e: anyone have a link to that Strikeforce GDT or B-League thread from that era? I'm genuinely curious what the response was.

I didn't watch all the strikeforce cards back in the day. I've only ever really watched UFC stuff unless there was something in the B leagues that I just had to see.

Can we have some highlights for those of us without archives?

And if I didn't know better, I'd almost think Lawler was happily sacrificing his leg to his blood god purely so he could land that specific punch from hell.

Then during the fight

holy poo poo lawler is getting tenderized

Lawler appears to have no particular gameplan other than "try not to get hit in face" and I think he's about to get TKO'd by these leg kicks

I don't understand. My brain is rejecting the entire concept like a bad organ transplant.

Then the guy who said Manhoef was getting felled got smug. I hope he had money on it, because the odds must have been pretty out there for a Lawler win.

Oh and later in the thread mobn gives a bunch of advice about how to get a guillotine from a sprawl which I'm going to ahead and ignore.

Grabbing a guillotine from the sprawl is way harder than it looks. You have to move your hips and shoulders enough that you can end up giving a reversal pretty easily.

I like watching dudes get knocked out. Chuck Liddell's career is very entertaining for me to watch since win or lose, someone is probably getting (T)KO'd (62% of his wins and 75% of his losses). i'm trying to find some other fighters who turned out like this, I thought Tito would be good for this but at 44%/33% he's pretty weak. can't even get knocked unconscious good enough, Tito. Rich Franklin is at 52% and 71%. are there any other guys I should be trying to track down to fit this weird fightpass craving?

ain't no bitch

For fighters with a good finishing/getting finished rate I always go to Gilbert Yvel. He had a 100% finish rate in his wins (33 ko, 6 sub) and only went to decision 6 times all in losses in 57 fights. The rest of his 16 losses are evenly spread between getting ko'd 4 times, subbed 3 times, and DQ'd 3 times (once for biting, once for eye gouging, once for KO'ing the Referee so thats another finish)

It cannot be left out that it was aimed almost directly at the brainstem, too. And on a dude he outweighed by 40 pounds. It is the holy grail of cheating.

The dirtiest move ever has to go to Gerard Gerdeau eye-gouging Yuki Nakai so badly that he was permanently blind in one eye and ended his career

Then he hid the fact he became blind so as to protect the reputation of the sport.

Then he went to train with the gracies and became the first Japanese bjj black belt. The man belongs in the mma pantheon.

Isn't that the fight where the other guy ran away while Yvel battered the referee?

You fuckers forgot the best part of the Lawler Manhoef fight. The stats.http://www.fightmetric.com/fight-de...091bfae576ff565 Lawler was outstruck 24-3. Yet those three were enough.

It's the second best fight stat in MMA. After Leonard Garcia throwing 130 strikes in a fight and landing 4.
