Yeah I was being nice but my dude morphed into Mark Hunt. I honestly thought that's who it was. Seemed like an odd choice for a grappling tournament but I was willing to see how it played out.

Isn't Munoz an accomplished wrestler? Also he got so fat after fighting lmao.

Oh he is, I meant it was a weird choice if it was Mark Hunt like I originally thought for a second.

This week's bonus patreon podcast by the Co Main Event boys went through and watched all of the Fedor New Year fights from his career. I thought it was nice of Rampage to put his younger brother on the sponsor banner instead of himself.

Rampage called a man, “Titties.” But now it is he who is the Titties.

Because I have way more time on my hands I've gotten around to watching PFL 2019 and also some DEEP Jewels. The latter more so out of curiosity since I've heard of it but never seen it.

Anyway this was in the opening ceremony of the event I watched. Yes, it's maid uniformed women wearing Jason Voorhees style hockey masks wielding chainsaws dancing in the cage.




Edit -

So it turns out the group JPop is called Kamen Joshi and that one of the women on the Deep Jewels card I watched is actually a member of that group and has a 3-5 record in MMA, and even fought in Rizin for 1 fight.

WTF Japan.

Edit 2 - OK, I feel like I need to do a writeup for the Let's Watch Random MMA Events thread. This whole show is so bizarre compared to other MMA orgs.

Were this the start of April where I was certain I wouldn't be going into work for the next few weeks I probably would have done this.

here's some of the ones I've got stuck in my brain:
-the crucifixion of Antonio Inoki
-that crazy intense rave drum session at the one US K-1 show.
-the loving tanks and poo poo at that one Polish MMA circuit
-Takeshi 69 popping up at a Rizin show(and I think one of his last public appearances, which means he might have run guns into Japan)
-the chick from Dune singing out Conor McGregor.

I have a hazy recollection of M-1 doing ballet in their cage. But that may be drugs.

I would remove Sinead since that was known/expected. Takeshi69 showing up out of the blue caught people off guard iirc.

Mayhem Miller dancing with Japanese women dressed as school girls in Dream is definitely up there.

I forget the Rizin or any other details about what was going on, but it was 2-3 years ago, and it led to a note in my, "potential song/album titles," list, which I just opened for the first time in a while. Oh, here it is:

A good one was UR Fight, a strange hybrid show that had bad mma, a Roy Jones Jr boxing match, a Chael Sonnen vs Michael Bisping grappling match, and a wrestling match between Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio which ended with interference by Riff Raff who had performed earlier

Upon further thought, posting about a recent (past 2 years) Jewels and potentially a Road FC event in the "Random MMA Events" thread may not be a good idea.

Would people be OK with a long writeup/summary of a Z-League MMA event in here or should those longer posts go into the "Random MMA Events" thread?

So I found out that Road FC (Korean MMA org that isn't terribly small I guess?) has pretty much all their fights on Korea's equivalent of Twitch/Justin.tv called AfreecaTV and was going through their events and found a fight where they had a Brazilian who was 20-8 fight a local guy who was 3-2. Enjoy.

This link is useless without a Korean VPN just fyi.

But here's their youtube channel that's pretty well arranged in to playlists so if you know what you're looking for it might be there:

Ah yeah forgot AfreecaTV does geo-blocking.

The fight I am linking to is this one: Michel Pereria vs Choi Won Jun


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmMRF6tpiVM

Pereira was on his 30th or so pro fight and his opponent was on his 6th. I don't think any commission in the US would ever allow that to happen even in Z-Leagues.

If Viacom owns CBS and a part of Bellator why would that be weird? Wouldn't it be weird if they went to a competitor?

Viacom don't own CBS anymore. They used to be one company like 10-20 years ago or so but then split.

Edit - Oh poo poo. I didn't realize they remerged. OK that makes way more sense now.
