Penn nuthuggers are like liberals. There can only be one opinion on their leader. Any opinion that differs is considered a microaggression that triggers them to find safe spaces and demand an ethics probe.
Their counter to the opinions that differ have zero logic or explanation and are comprised solely of ad hominem attacks.
They literally cannot fathom that someone can not be a fan of Penn. You MUST only talk about him in a worshipful way. Anything else is racist, ignorant, uneducated. You must not only be a fan of Penn, you must acknowledge his greatness or you know nothing about MMA.
To mention that someone...anyone could beat, that he has ZERO submissions from guard, that he couldn't escape side control against Hughes, that he got battered by Diaz or made to quit by GSP, mention is 16-10 record and deny their reasoning on how every loss was really a win, is to incite their wrath.
In other words, if you had to write a final thesis on "How to know if you're in a cult." you can just observe any Penn thread to see people lose all sense of reason, common sense, logic, and self-respect launch into a witch hunt.
They are the worst element in the sport. They represent everything wrong about a fan base. The are the model worst.
Is there anyone in the Jones family that doesn't party like drunk frat kids?
He saved winkeljohn, arlovski, and overeem and I'm sure others I don't know about. Even with a loss nobody would have believed arlovski would have gotten a number one contender fight in 2016.
Yeah as the other anon said, Croke Park is in a residential area and they hold considerable power for non-GAA games,
With Wembley it is close to houses and the travel there can only be described as being like a sardine in a tin, people walking to and from the venue at such late hours would definitely disturb the residents.
Not to mention all the litter people normally bring with them
Wtf is on Rockholds arm at 1:28 of that mmadigest?
Depends on how well trained you are.
There is a danger of breaking your hand via punches if you are unprotected, but with good technique you can minimise the chances of it happening.
All UFC draws are maymays lads, just face it.

I wonder if we will see companies willing to pay the fines for the fighters
like Nike did for Michael Jordan
also the UFC will generate it's own press/shitstorm for fining these companies so....
I don't think Reebok would have any say in the matter though. Maybe they'd try to stop him, but there's no way the UFC would prevent a big name like Cerronay from fighting over something that trivial.
> but there's no way the UFC would prevent a big name like Cerronay from fighting over something that trivial.
dude they can't let these guys breath while they shit
they gotta keep them on lock down or they will start having to pay guys more than $30,000 for a main card fight
Reebok is basically building an entire athletic line of apparel with the UFC, they believe UFC fans will wear their shorts and shirts and work out wear
so no Reebok and the UFC won't concede at all
UFC should have had it so the fighters can wear w/e except during the fight, and going to and from the ring they have to wear a "uniform" of only reebok stuff, they would be a fair compromise
Why haven't Reebok redesigned the gloves yet? seems like that could be the one positive thing to come out of the deal.
Given how badly they've managed to fuck everything else up them being put in charge of gloves would surely be a shit show. I don't think they have the knowledge and expertise to redesign mma gloves, not really their neck of the woods
Gave me a hearty chuckle, thanks lad
He loses in spectacular fashion normally.
That was the old TJ, before the Barao fight everyone thought he would get slaughtered.
From then on he has gone from strength to strength whereas Cruz ostensibly has become worse.
Coach hints mcgoob is gonna go for welterweight title after RDA
If I heem you just right it might put you out until March 5th m8
KO'd by a fat midget. Even worse
It was also TJ's 5th professional fight aside from TUF and Dodson's 17th and he had a solid 6 more years of fighting.
I'm just annoyed by the "heemed by a flyweight lol" meme. Dodson is a good fighter, can't deny that
I would rather watch her make obese women jealous.
>Would be cut by now if he wasn't exciting
You mean if it wasn't for his meme skin
Daily reminder rooting against Conor only makes him stronger.
It was an honest mistake. I'm an honest man. You're a dishonorable meme.
This starts with two of us entering an octagon and only one of us leaving a victor. I will be the man to leave it with my dignity no matter what.
Your move, tough guy.

although after the first regular season game, basically after training camp the NFL doesn't test for recreational drugs unless you in the drug program
which may be the case
if my calculations are correct it would appear ireland is the greatest fighting nation of all time
I do BJJ yes
You deal with headbutts like you would any strike. Either push them away to where they cant reach you. Or hold them in so close you cant get any distance to generate power. Headbutts arent magic
When you lay and pray you control the arms dibshit.
If you do do BJJ you probably don't even have a fucking stripe on your white belt.
I have talked to Purple belts and Brown belts that agree thats the reason headbutts are illegal in MMA
say that to me face m8 and we'll see who gets to walk home
mark coleman said it best
>when they took away headbutts i had to learn some skills
headbutts invalidate huge parts of BJJ including guard play which is pretty much the whole arts' foundation
>Fedor not fighting on the Rizin card in April ( http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2016/1/13/10760362/fedor-currently-in-negotiations-with-rizin-wont-return-in-april-mma-news )
Who the fuck is going to headline?
His body looks attainable natural, it's just the fact that he can cut a lot of weight very fast while maintaining strength and mass is very odd. I think he's on something but only time will tell
Anyone else get triggered when people say this? Mike Tyson literally transcends human ability. Just because you can punch really fucking hard does not make you Mike Tyson.
I have 2 stripes
And yeah you have to control the arms and the guy on bottem is fighting to tie up your arms or wrap around your head to break your posture.
If you can somehow control both the arms and get enough distance to headbutt someone then sure you can do that but yu cant act like it magically invalidates an entire art.
Its like saying
>Boxing is absolutely useless because I can kick them in the dick
was that a decision or a stoppage? I would be interested to check that out if you can link it
Well I am speaking more from a more self defence point of view
Though I think it is unlikely (howeve rpossible
to be KOed from a headbutt and will usually be stopped because of things like a broken nose
>tapping to strikes
Do you even want to be an ultimate fighter?
hehe it sure is an honour that USADA think I'm taking steroids. hehe it means they like my physique
>Just because you can punch really fucking hard does not make you Mike Tyson.
Tyson was getting up at 5:44 am without an alarm to go jog in the mornings....would literally spent his days boxing and training
you can flip your head from side to side and generate enough force to water eyes, cut, and hurt someone, not to mention using the entirety of your body to push your head into someone's fact
Not saying he isn't roiding but you cannot obtain Sage mode without the right genetics. Same thing with Brock Lesnar. You can't just take a bunch of roids and look like Brock Lesnar.
yeah I mean.....he was holed away at cus d'amato's house doing nothing but training for years
so when he wasn't around those people and was around the snakes don king had he went off the rails
like he lost 300+ million dollars, completely nothing to show for it
Do you think people who take steroids should be banned from competing in MMA?
I dunno man, since we love to see brutal heems, wouldn't we be hypocrites if we looked down on people getting juiced to the gills?
I am not saying that headbutts are not useful. I just take issue with people somehow saying headbutts are the magical "No can defend" bloodline technique. Its fucking not. Jiu Jitsu has defenses for it and they arent something you should rely on either. Just like you shouldnt rely on groin kicks.
I have seen old school Mark Kerr and Mark Coleman...what is it with Mark?
Anyway roided up super freaks use headbutts by overpowering people. Wow that proves so much.
Jokes on you I dont even have a GF
how can anyone even watch this shit? shitty technique aside, its basically a man fighting women. how is she allowed to have so much testosterone in her body and fighting females? this is absolutely sickening
He was actually caught and arrested with cocaine twice, once being 21 goddamn pounds, and the next time the 25 kilos you mentioned
“The next morning, Mike returned to the hotel carrying a canvas bag. Moments after entering Room 909, he left again. As he walked toward the parking lot, a handful of armed DEA agents descended on him. Mike was arrested and booked on two federal drug charges. In the bag; twenty-one pounds of cocaine, with an estimated value of $242,000. A little later, DEA agents also arrested John White as he tried to enter the room. Mike was charged with taking the cocaine in lieu of legal fees to represent thirty-year-old Mark Monroe Northcutt. Known in gyms around the state as a steroid dealer, Northcutt was a body builder and power lifter who had been arrested six months before in Houston for possession of twenty-five kilos of cocaine."
/heem/s OFFICIAL LIST OF RULES CHANGES NEEDED

Joe Rogan isn't serious right now is he?
He's just spouting off about politics and it's extremely clear he knows nothing about it at all.
Does he ever bring guys on that call him out on this shit?
i think black athletes in mma are lacking, period. just imagine if a lebron-tier athlete started mma. he'd be jon jones x100. its simple. blacks are better athletes in almost every sport. the only sports black people dont dominate are the ones they dont participate in. im white and ill even admit it.
Reminder to report all JRE/Rogan posters
Do you realize how diverse the black population is? You're not going to find east African people playing football nor west Africans doing anything that needs endurance. Just because one population is good at something doesn't mean they all are
Well obviously you know nothing about MMA, don't appreciate the subtle nuances of the sport, don't realize that BJ BUILT the 155 division, beat all the beast 155'ers, worldwide, and beat a lot of people twice his size for fun while he was at it.
Then four or five years ago or whatever, about two years before you bprobably ever heard of UFC, at the tail-end of his career, he had a few losses and a few bad performances, but you go look at the fights he lost, and he was winning them up until he lost.
BJ went drinking, Georges went to the Hospital. BJ is a small 155'er. George is the second biggest 170 after Anthony Johnson. He hugged BJ to death, I know that. Some people including some judges consider that highly honorable win.
You know, then he fights Rory "Bacne from Balco" McDonald, the RED-spot-on-his-tush-from-injecting-steroids-KING ..
BJ losses are always to the best guys in the world, d'ya notice that? Faggot? Frankie Edgr, is he any good? Was Matt Hughes any good?
Guess what, Anderson Silva, Fedor, Chuck, Hendo, BJ Penn, Sakuraba, GSP, Jose Aldo, Randy Couture, Shogun, Conor McGregor, what do these guys all have in common?
Losses on their records.
How many losses do you have? Probably just one, against life itself.
Watch the first fight again. DC does well in the middle when he avoids the cage. He needs to never try to cage hug, as he will get reversed 100% of the time and get gassed out, which is what happened in the first fight.
Look at the reach on blacks vs whites and hues just n the UFC, long arms are great for striking.
Counter point: explain the lack of black power lifters without saying blacks would be better if they did power lifting
He didn't do great either, he just kinda hung in there the last few rounds. He was ineffective when he was fresh in the beginning and didn't figure anything out as the fight progressed. What can DC do to make the fight turn out differently? especially when he has a much more focused Jones to deal with this time.
McGoober is in a win-win situation really. Even if he loses it doesn't matter - he's got a fight with Frankie penciled in (possibly at 200) and life goes on. Unless he gets proper heemed, in which case he could be out for some time and would miss that 200 payday.
I see that people are pretty hesitant to pick sides on the RDA vs Konrad fight. I kinda want the Red Panty era to continue so that his fall will be Ronda tier. Then again 0-3 this year and rehab for coke addiction would be pretty funny also. RDA did make Cerrone look like a baby, then again Cowboy doesn't have mewment. What do you think lads?

sometimes. If I dont get a similar reaction from others I over examine why it wasn't funny and feel stupid.
Tournament was the only good thing about it, main event was decent as well.
Eh, there were better WSOF cards. I mean it was a gimmick they didn't implement, there was only 1 good kickboxing bout on that card.
thanks anon you're a pretty good guy
I know man those elbows were fucking nasty. I dont have any Kenflo webms though.
sorry i've been at jury duty all day so im late to the discussion but why the fuck does bj penn think it's a good idea to fight again? do you think he's retarded, broke, or actually motivated?
Well apparently Lentz trash talked him. But I dont know
Maybe he fucked his ankle up real bad because of his last fight?
I just love technique over strength in action. Skinny guys are always fun to watch because of that like J-Lo and the Diaz Bros
yeah but bj called him out for no reason in the first place.let's say bj doesn't show up with the stand straight up and don't do anything gameplan like with frankie how do you think the fight goes?
oh shit that happened this year
where does the time go
His technique is very good, but the kicks themselve are not really hard to pull off. Did Taekwondo for 6 or 7 years, that spinning roundhouse kick is just a matter of positioning your legs well.
That back kick though is an exception, that is hard as fuck to place correctly. You don't want to know how many nuts have been cracked during practice by people fucking up the placement of it during training.
