This threads only for talking about stuff you know about first hand, like semi-pro biking, being an it professional, proper deadlift form, some of the reasons why all women will betray you, what the best hearthstone decks are, etc.

Jon Jones has made a fuckton of money from this sport but he's still the modern-era UFC Champion I consider most likely to be living in a van outside a gym by the time he's 40.

Nah Jones is really good about saving his money. When he was in that car crash with the pregnant woman that he ran away from, he made a point of going back to get his money before running away again.

If the OSP fight is indicative of the new post-USADA/dick pills/coke bender Jones, I think DC can beat him, although Jon making DC cry in the Octagon again would be more entertaining

Oh yea. Th hat post was retarded. But anything we could ever say about financials is speculation due to how close to the best it's all kept and I don't want to never talk about the business side.

Rumble has a chance against jones just do to the fact that he's really good at knocking people out, but the most likely outcome is jbj grinding him into dust. I don't think dc has anything for jones.

If I had to pinpoint the biggest thing WME is doing that's obviously different from previous ownership, it's how they handle title matchups, but even that's a big maybe as most of the egregious ones can 90-100% be attributed to Conor McGregor.

I claim victory over myprotein. Ordered £70 worth of Whey and Vitimins because they had a good deal on. They shipped it next day signed delivery, although the courier decided to just leave it on my front porch for the world to see and didn't get it signed.

Told them I never got it, they sent out the same package again. Easy.


I have a sore back today after a gym session.

Could someone please explain to me the correct deadlifting process from end to end?

They've done an increasing number of interim title fights in divisions where the champion was perfectly healthy and fighting, (although this happened time to time under Zuffa anyway, so it's not even hugely different.)

1. Dont do it until youre in your late 20s and have been sedentary up until that point
2. Take steroids because its hard
3. No one knows what happens at this part yet

Could someone please explain to me the correct deadlifting process from end to end?

quote:

1.Walk to the bar. Stand with your mid-foot under the bar. Donít touch it with your shins yet. Hip-width stance, toes out 15į.
2. Grab the bar. Narrow, about shoulder-width apart. Arms vertical from the front-view, hanging just outside your legs.
3. Bend your knees. Keep going until your shins touch the bar. Donít move the bar. Keep it over your mid-foot.
4. Lift your chest. Straighten your back. Donít move the bar. Donít drop your hips. Donít squeeze your shoulders-blades.
5. Pull. Take a big breath, hold it and stand up. Keep the bar against your legs. Donít shrug or lean back at the top.
Youíve finished your Deadlift when youíve locked your hip and knees.
6. Return the weight to the floor by pushing your hips back first. Bend your legs once the bar reaches your knees. Let the weight of the bar pass underneath your hips, neutralizing it. Donít bend your knees first or youíll hit them with the bar.
