Now she is complaining about the hair she didn't even shave
>that is a picture of your chest, not your hair.
If Mcgreggor Had been heemed early like Aldo, would he have gotten immediate rematch?
It might just happen when/if Aldo moves up to LW. The stakes would just not be the same since both fighters lost in devastating fashion since then, but it would still make for a great matchup.
>even aftet the loss, the MMA media, Dana, Rogan and all other kinds of zuffa shills are still comparing Ronda to Mike Tyson
When will this stupid meme die?
Thought we all knew the truth from begining anon
Watching joanna wreck Esparza was so rewarding

is this the greatest meme of 2016 in the making
theres's some jap literal fag that posts totally homo shit to Hunt
He posted on twitter or instagram something like "I wish you would come here walk in the beach with me" something like that, to what Hunt replied "this guyy, I'm married"

Question: are "High altitude" Cain and Sea level Cain two different fighters? As in two completely different people?
Was Sea level Cain even in California for Cain vs JDS 1?
Could this explain the drop off in performance in both fights?
Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking.
bueno, para ser honesto paisa, yo soy legal so a mi me vale madre.
pero como quiera tu sigues aciendo negro. ;)
is it this guy?
They are in fact two different people.
That's why Cain is so good, it's because he trains with his twin brother, and when he says that he is injured is just that he went on a incestous vacation to mexico with his family who live in a underground incestous sect who only admits twin brothers.
>who only admits
Werdum is confirmed undisputed HW GOAT.
nope some samoan looking dude recently started sending Hunt weird nude pics of himself and calling him daddy and shit and Hunt posted them publicly
i'm sure someone has the screencaps
He's a dork but he's also right. That was clearly a cleavage shot just in time for holiday attention whoring.
Not complaining, enjoy it when bitches put themselves out.
Name a tougher fighter in UFC than Kanehara
Watch the fight again, pay attention to the first round, when Cain was 100%, you will see that Werdum did all the right things to stop the unrelenting attack from Cain. He was doing very well actually.
I think this time Werdum will also take him down, cap this.
No, she's a good girl and married.
Only Meisha or Albu can sit on my face.
He already started bitching about losing rounds to Mendes because of muh knee and looked embarassed when he couldn't put away Siver early.
Aldo was a fucking angry retard for fighting like that. He was the better fighter and had the tools. It was his moment to shine and he went full on Brazilian muh emotions mode.
Interesting pattern in Dillashaw's record, he's won four straight fights and then lost his entire UFC career
Shut up Braun.
Hendricks was ready to suck Robbie's cock. He had his stupid face between Robbie's legs for a good duration of the bout.
Condit's pitter patter landed but didn't do damage. Robbie rocked him and had him in trouble in the 5th. IT was a close fight but not a robbery.
He beat Rory by pushing Rory's face in. He beat the dogshit out of Rory.
only a bitch tit like you would complain about Robbie coming to fight and pouring it on.
You can't win.
GSP dominates, breaks and bloodies his opponents
Lawler comes to fight and has exciting and bloody matches
>HE NOT GOOD CHAMP
Fuck you. Get cancer.
>actually thinking dillashaw wont kill exploding knee man
I just wanna see TJ win so he can fight Urijah for the belt, Urijah would put that big brother beatdown on him and it'd be nice to see Urijah touch a title before he retires tbqh family
I only think he'd have a shot because of his familiarity with him, they trained together for years and that could give him some sort of edge. It'd be an interesting fight at least.
>"I grew up in a decently tough neighborhood," says Weidman. "I grew up getting bullied and fighting a lot. My brother was probably one of the toughest kids from my neighborhood and he didn't make it easy on me. He made sure I was getting beat up as much as possible growing up. If he wasn't beating me up, he was making his friends beat me up. He threw a 10 pound weight on my head because I wouldn't get him a cookie. Split my forehead open pretty good."
>Weidman, who suffered a torn labrum, torn rotator cuff and an AC joint separation preparing to face Tim Boetsch last November, still claims nothing compares to a day he flipped his bike attempting a jump back in the old neighborhood.
>"Did a flip, landed on my shoulder, broke my collarbone totally clean. Clean off. My brother, he didn't believe it was broken, so he made all of his friends line up and punch me in the arm and told me I'd be crying if it was truly broken. After I got punched by everybody, it was the worst thing I ever went through."
>"I guess he didn't like me that much, growin' up. He'd punch me in the face. I'd stand there, he'd punch me in the face."
Nope. Not anymore. Just good to meh boxing cards. PBC has more cards like now. To me if feels like they're copying the UFC.
Danny "Can Crusher" Garcia vs Robert "brain damaged" Guerrero is on the 23rd I think.
Deontay Wilder is fighting on the 16th. Last time he fought some can and Jerome Le Banner was in the cans corner. Deontay was trying to get the Klitschko fight. But now since Bitchko got memed on that'll probably never happen.
Biggest fight comping up is Pacquiao vs Brady 3
As for kickboxing I have no clue. I know Glory has a deal with ESPN now. I'm surprised Glory is still alive too (somewhat) because they were bleeding money a like a motherfucker. If you wanna watch kickboxing there's always something on AXS Friday nights.
>tfw you remember the Glory PPV
>tfw there was only like 11 people posting near the end
>tfw Luke Thomas was there
>Cro Cop fought some boxer on the prelims on Spike
>a bunch of people became Schilling fans (who later got BTFO by Kato and now THAT IS NOT MY BOY)
>Luke Thomas asking the guy from Liev Schrieber (I think that's how you spell his name) to tell him the differences between boxing and kickboxing
>Melvin was there and lost which rustled people
>it was like 8 hours long
>Quadros and Schiavello were there (with Mauro I believe)
>Rogan was there
>a ton of seats were empty
I can't remember who the third president of the U.S was but I remember memes.
What a heck?!?! Tipo Sala de Justiça!
“I’m the bitch of the family,” Weidman says. His older brother, Charlie, was on his way to the NFL before a knee injury ended his career. “Athletically, I was always in the shadows, and he was always a better athlete than me growing up. He was 250 pounds, ran a 4.5 40, bench-pressed 38 times in the Combine.”
Couldn't find a picture. I'm guessing he looked like Gronk or somthing.
well fair enough on the boxing but I just want to be a true fightfan and watch as much as possible. I dont understand why everyone had to be smug about it though.
when is the next one of those coming up?
Anyone else here feel bad for Urijah Faber? He just seems like an overall nice guy that gets either fucked over or pushed around all the time.
>playing around with Conor before UFC 195 because they're "friendly" enough for banter
>Conor gets serious and grabs him
>Faber looks confused as fuck
Im making the next thread and it shall be a Paige thread
I agree and I really wanted him to win
it sucks MMA is seeing a huge influx of fans the last few years and they are all gonna think The California Kid is a joke
I would rather see him be an Analyst or Coach full time
>Greg Jackson system babby
>without people like Arlovski (Gronk),Conduit,Cerrone,Holly,Dodson he is shit
>losing to Matt Hamill
He will never be elite.
>Feel bad for Urijah
He lived the quintessential Southern Californian adolescence blessed with money, a loving family, athleticism, popularity, and likable personality. Add to that a potential hall of fame UFC career and a successful gym. The only thing he can't do is win a UFC belt or reach the top shelf without a stool. Impossible to feel sorry for him.
Could you imagine how thoroughly Joanna would test her #goodgenetics?
HGH you taste so good
he's pretty old though and never had a girlfriend, at least not one known to public. Plus he surrounds himself with young, ripped shirtless dude and makes them pose for homoerotic calendars.
>Plus he surrounds himself with young, ripped shirtless dude and makes them pose for homoerotic calendars
Are you not doing this on your non-gi training days, casual?
How man NorCal bros does it take to chnge a light bulb? - Hella!
How long does it take them? - For days!
It's common knowledge that Holyfield jumpoed on PEDs to put on the 20 lbs of lean muscle he needed to compete at Heavyweight.
But did you know that Holyfield is the ATG #1 ranked cruiserweight in history and his cruiserweight record alone beats Mike Tysons entire resume?
It was and pretty iconic for a while. I'd still consider it a comedy institution. I stopped watching when the announcer started doing ads to sponsor the musical acts. I'd imagine that was because of a lack of viewership. Anyway, Rondo doing SNL is a good idea. Whether she's washed up as a fighter or not she can still help grow the sport.
Reminder that Chris Weidman literally had pictures of Rockhold on his fridge that he had to go home and take down after getting his ass beat and embarrassed by his dad on national television.
i'll take it easier on the bunda next gamethread bros
>actually believing this
Literally 9 out of 10 famous athletes from the US are black.
Mayweather himself is the most wealthy athlete of all time, that would never happen if he wasn't popular.
Casuals are seriously forgetting that Ward was HOBO's most pushed boxer at one point with a huge fanbase and its Wards fault his career was flushed down the toilet.
There are a lot of black fighters getting a lot of attention but Floyd is pissed because none of them are in his shitty social media driven posse.
When you see this face you know the other guy is getting his chin deleted
Nah, not really, the biggest stars are literally ALL blacks. Michael Jordan, he is loved as fuck. Mike Tyson, another giant star, most people love him (now), Muhammad Ali, still loved to this day even though he talked a ton of shit and was a muslim unironically. I can't remember one white athlete that reached this level of fame.
This is the same with other figures who are not athletes like Oprah, Michael Jackson, Morgan Freeman, etc
Remember that blacks are only 13% of the total population in the US.
I just got a warning on another board so have some euroblack bunda on the house.
Long post. Sorry.
Kinda. He said racism exists in pro sports. All despite being the highest paid athlete in the world,being black, but more importantly being a manlet. He cited Layla Ali and referenced Ronda. Something about how Ronda did the exact same shit like Ronda. Despite Layla being trash,boring and ducking Ann Wolfe. He also cited that Andre Ward (another boxer) not being ranked higher is probably due to racism. And in no way attributed to his boring style, and being inactive for 12 years. ESPN journos have been saying that it's easier to be the white guy who is cocky than the black guy who is cocky in reference to McGregor's and Mayweather's personality. How JJ Watt celebrated a play and the celebration was as long as a Cam Newton play. And how Rob Gronkowski wrote in his book that he had a party in his apartment,he was nude cooking eggs,there were nude girls, and people say "based Gronk". But if it was Cam Newton we would shit on him. Which would be warranted because Cam is a Christian,doesn't drink,does tons of charity,has been with his girl for a longtime and just had a kid.
This is what Jones looks like now that he's training year round. DC is fucked.
It's quite literally the combination of european and black with dominant euro genes. I figured an Argentinian wouldn't be so facially dyslexic in regards to mixed people.
Most people aren't racist (really).
If you have the talent you'll get the fans.
Actually, the idea of 'race' is a farce. It's really just a matter of ethnicity. Everyone on this board is the same race (human).
top bantz tbqh
I was thinking about all this yesterday, what if DC is right about Jon more prone to gas? I can see DC beating a gassed out Jones, probably by submission.
Do you think they actually hate each other and it isn't all hype?
after the bell rang they still tried to fuck each other up.
>Mayweather himself is the most wealthy athlete of all time
I don't see it. Thiago had a job for a lot longer and wasn't even as known as Eddie. Although to me it comes off as Eddie to most of the UFC audience. Also yes he beat Gilbert Melendez. Plus it was a headache to get him.
I don't understand why I hate him so much
Every time I see him in a fight or clip, I can't help but hope he gets heemed
It might be the hair
>Google Koscheck to find out about Joshs opponent for Bellator
KOSCHECK IS HURT
His head looks so reinforced. Gus gave hem a solid knee to the face and all he did was stagger for 2 seconds.
I wonder what exactly makes people have great chins, some say that bigger heads mean better chins but there are some small headed dude that can take a serious punch.
Scientist have to get on this ASAP
I think the conversation is slightly muddied by the fact that commentaters will say
>'WOW, WHAT A CHIN, THIS GUY CAN REALLY TAKE A PUNCH.'
when it's a glancing blow, or a shot that's really absorbed by the forehead and not the jawbone...
I don't think you can science the shit out of it, there's so many factors
>whether you expect the punch or not
>how hard your training/the fight until that point was (previous damage/light or hard concussions)
Yes, but they can for example test this with 50 people who don't report ever having a concussion, make them do math test, logic test etc then giving them some money to get concussed in a good enviroment and test them afterwards for at least a year to see the overall effects.
You can also test how many of them lose consciousness, for how much time, how many don't, and try to get a reason why some do and some don't.
Ethics would be hard to bypass though, maybe China or Russia can do it.
he was on tuf 19, also know as the most shit tuf ever. tuf guys rarely stick around long, but they stuck around the shortest and did some of the worst. some guy at bloody elbow did the groundwork on it but it is at least one of the worst 3, if not the very worst as time will tell on the rest of them
I've heard before it could also have to do with the strength of your neck muscles in that they could potentially lessen rotational momentum and spare someone from a KO. To my knowledge there hasn't been an extensive study on it, though
I don't think it's the primary factor that determines a person's chin by any means: I've just read (tried to find the articles before I made my first post but I came up empty) that it could play a role. I do think there are quite a few other factors that contribute though, too
He also took a nasty shot from Rumble, which would be an auto-heem for any other fighter, but he came back and won. DC is kind of corny but people don't give him enough credit imo
He actually got dropped and inmediatly recovered, Pride Wandy style
b-but muh melanin power. fake webm.
reported for racism you fucking white male scumlord
Australian shitposting like clockwork
post yfw jones goes straight to HW and tells DC to enjoy being a fake champ
Losing your chin isn't really a thing.
Stepping up in competition or losing your reflexes and getting hit more is.
Foreman could step into the ring right now and not get KO'd because he has a chin of Granite.
Chin is mostly genetic and deals with the nerves that are activated when hit in the chin, temple, or behind the ear.
when you compare the chins of boxers and how boxers have to take punches that are thrown properly with the intention of getting as much power as possible lads in mma have babby chins but id say its because they have to commit time to every aspect of the game
Losing your chin has nothing to do with losing reflexes. Take for example Dan Henderson, he got hit HARD all his career, very rarely he got hurt , now he gets hit by a jab and wobbles.
Or even Chuck Lidell, he used to take a great punch and eventually Franklin barely touched his head and he was out cold.
>only paying attention to light heavy weight and heavy weight
Wow that must be very exciting only watching stuck in the mud fights
sorry nearly everyone under 185 is a fucking nobody after GSP left.
Demetrius Johnson is the biggest fighter under 185 and he's a fucking meme. Anyway, 185 has the most talent out of all divisions.
Ahh, that makes sense
Then the reason is because he's an obnoxious Irishmen high on cocaine 24/7 who is the biggest dispenser of memes in the UFC right now. Casuals eat his hype up because he shit talks all the time shows up then knocks people out.
>Losing your chin has nothing to do with losing reflexes
It does when you get hit more from shitty reflexes.
How the fuck do you translate that post into slower reflexes = less chin resistance.
Jesus Christ. Do you have trouble carrying on conversation with normal people in real life?
>getting this mad on 4chin
Calm down whitey, losing your chin has to do with losing liquid in the brain from constant trauma, even if reflexes don't change, a weak punch that connected would still knock you out. Losing reflexes of course makes you more prone to get hit, making you more prone to getting heem, but that is an indirect connection to the losing of the chin itself.
Stop being such a fucking aspie and getting mad.
Hope you enjoyed my blog post. -ArgieBro
Why are there no WMMA fighters from Dagestan?
Don't forget, she rebounded from that adversity. True sign of a GOAT mentality.
I think it's not the padding that makes boxing having less KO rates, is first the advantage of having giant glove that you can use literally as a shield, and second the big gloves make the surface of contact way bigger, which translates in less snapping of the head.
tbf you are fight in a sense but blocking with your gloves is generally the last line of defense. First is being out of range, second is movement or nullifying the attack by either tucking the chin and moving the head, shoulder rolling, ducking and shifting out, clinching, rolling with the punches ect. If you ever have a coach that tells you to "keep your hands up" when getting punched, they're probably Rousey's coach tier
The real reason is because boxers get to focus on nothing but boxing their reflexes and what they are taught are good enough to let them avoid punches. Roy Jones Jr. could never take a punch for shit but he didn't need to because he was a great fighter.
>implying we don't fuck all kinds of euro bitches(especially swedes and dutches)who come here looking for some of that tango dick
Believe it or not, this happens a lot in this techno shithole in downtown, pic related
