It's the inability to enunciate. Also it's a lot of words to say that sports are how people get away from the bullshit in their lives. For most people though, it's work and relationships that they are getting away from. He's trying to tie the growth of MMA to the growth of his own politics over the years when really that's just how he personally experienced it, so I don't know why he keeps saying "we" instead of "I."

Because the political backdrop actually affected everyone you dingus

I think Mr Jon said he asked Felix to read it because he wrote the script and laid the groundwork and Jon did the videos, and because it's written in his voice it sounded better when he read it

Anyway is there going to be a gdt for TUF 28 finale

I liked that the series spent so much time on Silva v Sonnen 1

That was the fight that drew me into the sport as more than a once in a while viewer and made me actually follow it more closely.

When my friend was trying to get me into UFC he sat me down and we watched all of Anderson Silva's matches. Silva/Sonnen 1&2 made me an Anderson fan.



He fought Wideman a week later.

That fight made me a Wideman fan. Then the second one made him seem unstoppable.

We all know how that turned out. MMA is a wild rollercoaster.

Tonight's fight card has a fighter named Ricky Rainey and another supposedly different fighter named Roosevelt Roberts.

In terms of ranked fighters fighting, you have the second-to-last fight on the prelims (going on around 9 PM ET) between Joseph Benavidez and Alex Perez, Ji Yeon Kim in the main card opener, and then Munoz/Caraway and the main event Dos Anjos vs Usman. Seems like a decent card.

Word. I'm probably going to try to catch the preshow at work and hopefully make it home before the show proper. I want to watch the women's featherweight match, because Chiasson is my friend and I love her

I was at Rumble Sports when Pannie was training there and she's a nice person, so I really hope she wins. Chiasson is way bigger than her and looks to have serious stopping power, though, so I'm prepared to be sad.

Am I the only person who finds the redesigned UFC site unnavigable? All I need to know is when the earliest prelims start, and they make it so unintuitive that I can't find it.

UFC.ca is still the old design, but (as sometimes happens for FS1/TUF Finale cards) they just have all the fights listed in a big block with only the main card start time, instead of separate sections for each set of prelims and their own time, as usual.

I'll drop it after this post because I don't want to clog up the thread with my film analysis but it just seems like a dumb point since the decline of the sport from his point of view is due to low fighter pay (which has always been a factor, and used to be worse even with sponsorships), the reebok deal, and better drug testing. It just reeks to me of old people being like "music in my day was so much better than this new crap". I guess he cites his favorite fighters losing too? But I mean, the UFC has always been running as fast as they could towards monetizing just about anything. If anyone thinks this sport used to be more pure and less greedy, I just don't think that's realistic.

I described the fifth episode earlier as sherdoggy because it's full of relatively dumb complaints that people on that forum still make, and here too to a lesser and somewhat more tolerable extent. We'd all love for fighters to get paid more. Even if we don't like it, I think we all understand the thinking behind the Reebok deal. I don't want all my favorite fighters to die young from heart failure after pounding EPO their whole careers, and supporting an environment where people have to use PEDs is not conducive to the health of the sport. All the fighters you love right now will eventually get old and lose. Try not to be upset now that we've been following this sport for 10+ years and you're more grown up now and busy with adult things and there are too many cards and fighters to keep track of.
