if I was 20 something fresh out of rehab and someone told me I could fight without getting the cops called on me, I would do this poo poo for free.

I think this is a pretty good draft class overall. It's really shaping up that way because of the water types.


There apparently has been some big drama at the card today

As of the future, anyone who has ever been in a professional fight is banned from Streetbeefs competition

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zCaFSIAfsc

The going theory I heard is that a couple of legit fighters were entering the competition for giggles and basically destroying the poor bastards they were up against.

However, Scarface also deleted his video I posted yesterday describing that he wanted to fight Candyman because Candyman was a pro, and the referenced "legit match" between Scarface and Candyman was reduced to a "sparring match".

I've heard some theories that Scarface was so humiliated in sparring he decided to even up things by banning anyone who was ever pro.

He mentions Candyman, Abuelo, and A-Train as being included in the ban, so I will see if I can pull up some of their recent stuff.

As requested, some pro vs. non-pro matches

A-Train vs. Italian Tyson

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYC7IWVoKTI

Abuelo vs. Maddog

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-Dtk9K6TZ8

Maine vs. Italian Tyson

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrB_-hZ0ITY

A-Train vs. Beautiful Savage

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

Abuelo vs. Wolfman

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPaD1cOhTDg

Clearly the pros are outclassing the non-pros, but it hasn't been quite the assbeating I was expecting short of Abuelo v Maddog

Update

Apparently a lawyer for the West Virginia Athletic Commission got in touch with the Virginia Athletic Commission and threatened to shut them down because its illegal for professional fighters to compete in amateur events.

Not sure about the law and whether its true, but that is the official story.

Not even joking, I was becoming paranoid someone read this thread and reported them because it seemed weird all this drama popped up the same week I started this thing.

Fortunately Scarface says its been going on for a few weeks in the newest vid so thats good.

Yeah, ESPN does it too.

NPR actually had a decent story where they deconstruct how ridiculous the excuse is. It's where I got the quote from the sheriff about the town never having a murder problem ever. I will post it later.

Italian Tyson is growing on me. He comes off as such a hilarious try hard, showing up with trunks and a fight camp and then visibly throwing a fit when he loses

Watching these fights I experienced the same kinda glee as seeing UFC for the first time as a kid or when my buddy would show us Kimbo fights. It's like if those trashy backyard fighting/wrestling DVDs that were everywhere in the early 2000s actually delivered.

Italian Tyson is easily my favorite. He has a tiny bit of skill and it actually makes him worse then dudes just throwing bombs until they tire out.

Isn't there like, an actual principle where with certain skills, you actually get WORSE for a brief span while learning because you know the principles but are failing to execute them, but you're focused on them enough that you look worse at it than a rando? I thought that was a thing.

When he fights a-train he sucker punches him a good two seconds after the bell.

Not only is STREETBEEFS helping to reduce violent crime, but it also helps deliver much needed orthodontic surgery to the poor.

I feel like this fight shows a problem with standard MMA rules in an untrained environment. How do you determine a person is no longer able to intelligently defend themselves when even pre-concussed they cannot intelligently defend themselves?

I also like how he narrowly avoided that first kick and I was like "he was lucky, that would have hosed him up" and then walked right into the second one

I am also trying to figure out if Reaper is going for an arm bar here and misses or if he is randomly flailing in a way that reverse engineers an armbar set up

"Cargo Cult Armbar" has entered my vocabulary thanks to this thread.

Irish Hurricaine [sic] vs. White Russian is my current car wreck of choice, as Irish clearly has no desire to be in the ring in the first place and basically gets talked into continuing after the first standing eight.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkEDaf11xE4

EDIT: Okay, Phit vs. Robo Redneck... I don't want to be too rough on these two because they're clearly too young and inexperienced to understand just how terrible they are. Plus, the ref gets a little instruction of his own partway through ("They're workin', you can't stand 'em up.")

But the exchange at 1:15 after the restart is just... I can't...
