Didn't people used to say GSP wasn't all that big of a welter in his prime? I guess it's feasible he could make 155 but I'd still be shocked as hell to see it.

Of the guys he fought for the title at welterweight, all of them were either taller or visibly more muscular. It's debatable whether he was smaller than average, but he wasn't an exceptionally large guy for the division.

BJ Penn throws off these averages, however.

People actually said he was small which I never understood unless your points of comparison are just peak Thiago Alves and roided to the gills Johny Hendricks

Or Jon Fitch, or Carlos Condit, or Nick Diaz. Hughes and Sherk were both carrying more muscle, even if they were shorter. The only exceptions were Penn and Serra.

Again, definitively saying he's small might be a little much, but he's not big for the division

Lol nope. GSP was also bigger (mass wise) than Condit, Diaz, koscheck, hardy, and probably many more. At the time guys like Luigi fiorivani were solid size WW and plenty of chubby lightweights populates the top 20.

He was never the biggest but he’s not undersized against any WW.

You're probably right on Hardy, but Koscheck walks around at 192 according to him, while GSP walks around at 185 (again, according to him), and Condit and Diaz both have to stay really loving lean to be able to fight at Welter because both of them have much larger frames than GSP. Condit is loving 6'2.

Yes, all of them technically fit at the division, but the effort is clearly going to be harder for some than others, and GSP isn't one of them.

Yes, the time he's going to have a fight that will likely make his bosses more money, he also wants to make more money. Is this tricky for you?

I'm also unclear on how everyone has concluded that a fight with TJ is going to be some huge money maker. TJ isn't a needle mover either.

Pretend I can find that long quote of Mighty Mouse explaining his side.

Also, pretend you only just realised the idea of taking Dana White at face value is absurd.

The whole saga is dumb as poo poo. At the time, Bisping was refusing to fight anyone, Woodley would not stop complaining, Conor wasn't even in the sport, Cyborg thought she wasn't being supported in a division they made for her, but somehow it's MM who gets thrown under the bus for ducking someone who's not even in his weight class.

MM gets X to fight contenders to his belt and when the contender is really lovely, they don’t pay less, they honor the contract. When MM finally has a challenge again he wants to hardball for a gigantic raise. If they were asking him to go up to BW, I’d say he deserves the 2 mil he wants, but he shouldn’t demand Conor’s opponent money to fight anyone with a name in his own weight class.

Yeah. They don't pay less than the contract because that's a bad thing to do. Paying more is a good thing to do.

Again, you're arguing in favour of management over labour.

TJ isn't in his weight class and has never been in his weight class. He wrestled at 133 pounds 10 years ago.

He absolutely should demand more money to fight someone who's far more dangerous than anyone he's faced and, more importantly, would be a far easier fight to promote than any of his other fights that they refused to promote.

DumbWhiteGuy posted:

like getting TJ's full purse if he didn't make weight or something.

I'm pretty sure that was something that TJ actually offered to do himself.

DumbWhiteGuy posted:

Also I'm pretty sure we laughed at this part

I don't know why you would. They don't promote him. That's something that's observably true. In fact, they don't promote him and publicly poo poo on his drawing ability, something that they can personally effect, in a 'we've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas' type scenario.

Also, I only just realised the absurdity of White going 'he doesn't sell PPVs, he's really bad at it. Seriously, no one buys his PPVs. Also, we offered him PPV points and this didn't immediately break the negotiating deadlock, clearly it is him who is being insane.

Keith Hackney punishing Joe Son's balls is pretty funny. The headlock is maybe not the greatest grappling move. Plus if I recall correctly Joe Son carries a cross to the ring.

Kimo used to do it too, and Joe Son was his team mate in the early days.

edit: both of these are from the point of view of not just the fight but the fallout and fan reaction. You could grit every single road in the Pacific Northwest all winter with the salt from Fedor fans after Hendo dropped him on his head.

The idea that it was stopped early set in really quickly, not helped by the fact that the camera cut back to Fedor after he'd more or less recovered, while someone's camera phone caught him struggling to his feet like a baby giraffe.

My submission is Overeem Browne. It's just such a perfect Overeem fight. He demonstrates how much better he is in the opening seconds while Browne just kind of spazzes out. Then he gasses, Browne keeps spazzing, throwing the Lisa Simpson kick, and finally gets it. Overeem just sits down with the acceptance of defeat we've come to expect from him, Browne runs in to finish him, but is so tall and unco that his head takes a moment to catch up with his legs. It's just perfect.

My brother was in prison for 9 years and told me he would microwave baby oil and put it on the floor of his cell except for the place he was standing. He'd then call out someone in the common area and when they came running in they'd slip and slide and he, standing in the only dry spot, would just pummel them while they tried to gain traction. That's the best base for MMA.

That's one of the best things I've ever heard.

Why was he pummelling these dudes?

Stipe struggled with Shane Del Rosario (rip) for a round, Struve actually pulled off a pretty cool submission, Roy Nelson effortlessly knocked some dude out. Bigfoot was in the co-main and Cain murdered him, and Mir actually looked okay until being killed by the prettiest straight right JDS has ever thrown.

It's impressive that scoring one decent win against a relevant opponent absolutely qualifies as turning it around for Michael Bisping, who once had to cheat against Jorge Rivera, who I promise exists.
