Is tonight the greatest moment in Dominick Cruz's life?

No.

The greatest moment in my life was realizing that I didn't need a belt to be happy.


CM Punk might win his 2nd fight if it's against an actual bum this time and not Mickey Gall type dude. Punk has now had like 3 years of training, he could beat up a UFC gym goer.

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.


Machida looked the same as ever. Which means he should retire.

Sean Shelby is at fault as well but once the fight was made and that cage door shut that poo poo was all on Yamasaki

The corner not pulling her out is pretty damning too. Not a good look for many people involved, really.

He let someone hit their opponent 203 times against the opponent's 3 times, mostly on the ground with no realistic way to defend.

After enduring a completely unnecessary, one-sided beating, Priscilla also had to tap three times before Yamasaki noticed

Being a pure bjj practitioner with nothing else to support you won't work, though, at the highest levels. BJJ on it's own isn't going to get it done for you at the top, but it's loving dumb to think that submission grappling doesn't help you in combat sports.

Yeah my mom watched the first round with me, looked disappointedly at me and walked away saying 'I don't understand why this is a sport'.

Thank God she wasn't around for the second.

Yeah it's easy to look at raw submission numbers going down over the last two decades and go BJJ IS DONE but the threat of submissions and position game motivates so much of what happens on the ground still.

Also 5 minute rounds and near immediate standups do to "inactivity" on the ground do no favors for subs

Completely agree, but just relying on bjj no longer works, hence the comment in the other thread about bjj tournaments now.

But you can't singularly rely on any one discipline in MMA.

And I'm not gonna derail this thread to argue why bjj tournaments aren't boring but most of it has to do with a points system that can be gamed. Hard to argue that EBI Rules tournaments are not entertaining.
