Been watching a Mythbusters marathon. Jon Fitch and Brendan Schaub have now both been on as examples of proper badasses. Just to confirm, that is hilarious?

Yes don't trust that show.

They are former UFC fighters with winning records. So no, not really.

There has to be people in UFC's social media dept making them. I remember a bout a couple months ago that had both sides posting photoshops and it felt very manufactured

It wasn't that instance but I can't remember. We know they do "how to use twitter" at the fighter summits and give monetary bonuses for using it, it's a short step to make photoshops for them

I'M A BIG STUPID IDIOT WHO GETS TRIGGERED FROM THE WORDS SPORTS BALL AND HAS SHIT OPINIONS ABOUT CARD GAMES. ALSO I SAID I WAS GOING TO QUIT HEARTHSTONE OUT OF SPITE OF A TAIWANESE WINNING THE CHAMPIONSHIP SO REPORT ME IF YOU SEE ME POST IN A HS THREAD


SOMETImes you get a bonus for using social media, sometimes you get fired for threatening to put your opponent in the surprise sex van. Social media is a land of contrasts.

Jon Fitch and Brandon Schaub despite being relatively unable to actually harm people in the cage would absolutely destroy 85% of the general population and without a doubt beat up all your dads.

He's getting worse at this. And he wasn't that good to start with.


That's somehow worse than I remember.

This was still the worst and most awkward bit of marketing I've seen this decade. It should be taught in universities.

I'd empty quote my post from after the mayweather fight where I said Conor isn't gonna fight in the UFC again unless/until he goes broke and people call me an idiot but I'm on my phone so I'm just gonna pat myself on the back a lil instead.

I've never had that much money, but I've been told by people that do that cocaine and sports cars are a really good way to have a lot less of it.

Fitch was a genuinely impressive fighter for a long time, a good example of someone with very few physical gifts (aside from being quite tall) and an insane work ethic. Also, if you can watch him get the poo poo beaten out of him by GSP and never give up without kind of rooting for him, you might be a robot.

I thought that was Jake Shields who got decisively outstruck by a fat guy with twenty minutes striking training.

I think it would be cool if Conor had exciting fights in the sport he is very good at rather than get beat up by another geriatric boxer.

Everyone wants this but not badly enough to start a gofundme to make up the difference between what the ufc pays and what fighting steffi graf at wrestle mania pays.

wow. That's a pro-click wikipedia page:

quote:

Former high school bully, Brandon, thinks he defines the line between the weak and the strong. He thought it would be funny to pick Alex up by the ankles, and "throw him like 15 feet across the gym." Brandon broke Sean's arm, and Sean must deal with it every day. That is, until Mayhem Miller brings in MMA champion Eddie Alvarez to teach him a lesson... Bully Beatdown-style. Brandon, the tool, ends up apologizing to them both straight up in the end. Alex and Sean won $10,000. Brandon later did porn under the name Robby Vega.[1]

quote:

Victims Martin and Adesh have a big problem with big bully Nathan. He's made their lives miserable and have the physical and emotional scars to prove it. Mayhem calls upon legendary MMA fighter, Andrei Arlovski to clean this bully's clock. He was knocked out and submitted five times. Nathan's taunting of Arlovski only makes his beating worse. Martin and Adesh won $10,000

Oh, he's excellent at marketing himself, he's just poo poo at trash talk. Luckily, he's in a sport and era where the bar is really loving low. I mean, the best trash talking moment of 2016 was two women who spoke English as a second language awkwardly implying that the other should be fisted so they'd calm down.

Admittedly, it was amazing, but it was hardly Ali or Johnson.

It's true in our hearts. Any stupid thing you can say about Miller is something that is either true, or is entirely plausible. It's never really out of the question.
