Yamasaki is so frustrating because he's not like Mazzagatti where its cut and dry. Half the time he's a fine ref - maybe not great, but competent. Its the other half of the time thats the problem, when its evident that he has only achieved what he has in life through a dark pact with the same ancient blood god Tan Dan worships.

I remember watching a fight on AXS where a dude had been ground and pounded unconscious but the ref just stood idly by. His reasoning was that he didn't know he was out because the dude's eyes were still open.

That's Alex White

Holy poo poo, did the ref even end up calling the fight off or did people just ignore him and come in the cage anyway?

The latter, Sherdog has it as a corner stoppage and you can just make out his corner calling him a loving moron in that clip over the commentary team doing the same. Ref is Rusty Sullivan, which wounds like a Monster Factory custom character or some poo poo.

I doubt anyone else was itching for it, but I have got the GDT covered for UFC 221. I came up with an idea for it and thought it would take forever since I had never heard of half the guys on the main card, but I've got it 95% done already. I'll put it up Friday evening or Saturday morning.

Knock yourself out, my guy

Charles Gnarwin posted:

After getting brutally knocked out by Michael Bisping, the only solution is to go to the division where they hit harder.

This seems like common sense and oftentimes is true, but sometimes the issue of someone's chin is they cut too much weight that they're more likely to be knocked out due to having less fluid around their brain to cushion it from concussive force and moving up in weighr actually helps, despite there being theoretically harder hitters.

Rob Whittaker got knocked out by Stephen Thompson and rocked a few other times as a UFC welterweight and is now the undefeated champeen at middleweight.

Dan Didio posted:

That's all true, but it's worth nothing that Rockhold's problem with his chin isn't down to weight-cutting anywhere near as much as it is down to his absolutely porous and pedestrian boxing defense.

As much as people like to harp on about Bisping not having any power, the man knows how to throw a punch and Parillo has helped him greatly in putting his weight behind his most meaningful punches and power is one of the less meaningful things when it comes to knocking out someone with bad defence and a tendency to overextend themselves.

That may be the case as well, but I would argue then it would only behoove him to move to a division where thee average fighter is substantially slower and shittier than the people he is being matched up with at middleweight

It appears Sage Northcutt has escaped his father's clutches and joined Team Alpha Male.

I feel like Tristar would have been a better place for him technically, but aesthetically and sexually speaking TAM is for sure the right fit and will take him to the next level.

hey it's me, Tim Kennedy, here to let you guys know that I actually found Hitler. I found him in Bogota, and was ready to take him out with a perfect .50 cal shot right through his spinal cord 300 yards down wind, but the History Channel radioed to say they needed him alive to do a Season 3. Thats just how it is in the tv world, folks, but I just thought you should all know that I found Adolf Hitler, alive and well in Latin America

I believe Howard Jacobs possesses some sort of voodoo doll or phylactery that allows him to take the anxieties he should feel as a lawyer when his unprepared client completely shits the bed when being cross referenced on the stand and projects them onto some other being, and unfortunately it looks like he has a printout of dunc's post history in the box

He is not being suspended by CSAC, they are leaving that up to USADA. He had his license revoked. Suspension means he automatically gets to fight again when its up, revokation means he needs to prove before anothet CSAS committee hearing he is not a gently caress up first.
