I don't understand Roxy's appeal but I'm not super into the animes so...

she's been a journeyman fighter for like fifteen years now. i guess she turned her career around but she was a mediocre fighter in a bad division for a long time. roxanne modaferri in a ufc title fight would've been like, i dunno, like imagining war machine in a ufc title fight. except it's happening, and it's cool.

I think we can all agree she'd be making WAY more money as a computer programmer

The usual reason this is so stupid is because, of course, of the fire and drive and passion that leads one to try and become the best at anything, but especially a combat sport, is so far removed from a lame rear end white collar job for nose pickers that it's frankly rude & shows a lack of understanding to even suggest it, regardless of if anyone would be making more or less money as a computer programmer.

But I mean Roxy would probably be a good computer programmer.

Roxy trained in Japan because womens MMA didn't exist in America at the time and as a result she internalized and used the Japanese MMA training schema, like Don't do weights because that's for homos, Don't accidentally beat anyone whos been at the dojo longer than you because it's rude, always skootch yourself around the floor on your back after every class to show respect and clean the floor etc. and as a result she sucked like all Japanese fighters do. But I guess she's with a real team now and someone told her how to throw a punch.

my favorite roxy thing ever is when Sarah Kaufmann, noted 1-2-1 puncher knocked her out with a slam.

my second favorite roxy thing ever is when a flyweight boxer did the same thing on TUF

it was cool because she'd post on myspace about the pro level strats her training partners were giving her and it was like "stop eating sodium 6 weeks before the fight, all the weight you lose will be sodium and then you just have water left to cut"

I think he is an all time great, but I rarely found myself pumped for post WEC Aldo.

Watching the homunculus in Overeem frantically mash the buttons in his brain is always worth watching, though.

Overeem/Ngannou is gonna look like a low level Dark Souls character fighting a tremendously powerful boss; only they're both kinda the same size.

Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.

Let's say Reem wins this fight, then the title fight. Is he in the GOAT conversation? I think so. He has a lot of losses but he has a poo poo load more fights than anyone except Fedor who is also in that conversation at HW.
