Just read that GSP is injured so can't fight at UFC137 which means Diaz-Penn is the main event. TBH I think that would probably have been the more interesting fight anyway. Don't be scared homie!!

In other news, really excited to have tickets to the judo at next year's Olympics!

Koscheck offered to save the fight and step in for GSP. I guess he really wasn't kidding when he said he hated the off time so much that he would fight any one any time and without notice.

Good to see Cesar "20 Seconds" Gracie back to his old self. I don't see any reason to make that fight a five rounder on such short notice. Plays into the advantage of Diaz and Gracie obviously knows that. I'm getting a bit sick of Cesar and as fun as watching Nick Diaz whine after every win has been...I wouldn't mind seeing BJ take this one.

After one of the best comebacks I've ever seen, I'm excited to see Kongo vs Mitrione. I'd be happy for either of them to win, but I feel like the fans have the best chance at victory here.

Random thoughts on 137
Hopefully Nelson can bounce back and help steer CroCop to brain safety via retirement.

Siver Cerrone could be good fun..or spectacularly dull. Funny seeing Siver drop further down the cards the more he wins.

Hoping Ramsey puts on a good show. Enjoyed his writings while on the ultimate fighter show and would love to see him earn some points.

Oh look everyone, it's a Brandon Vera.

I like MMA but GSP is the only fighter I really care if he wins or not as most of the fighters are meatheads.
6 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 10/19/11 - 6:20:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
If you like the sport enough to like more than one non-meathead fighter, I've got a list of a good 20+ fighters that may interest you.

Maybe... It's not a personality thing for me though so my enjoyment of the sport doesn't really hinge on that.

(Though my respect for GSP means that more is at stake when I watch a match with him participating).

Whilst there are still some plain "meat head" fighters out there, I think the view that the majority of MMA fighters are like that is outdated. For the most part, especially at the elite level, these guys are athletes whose chosen sport is fighting.

And hell, even Matt "Meathead" Mitrione is a very pleasant fellow.

Having seen the Ultimate Fighter TV series, I'm gonna stick by my assessment.

I mean there are a few likeable guys that appeared on that show (the guy who won season 12 for example was a cool dude)... but the majority of them were meatheads that I would have no time for in real life.
6 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 10/20/11 - 4:59:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
And I think roughly 4% of the entire cast of the show currently has a contract in major promotions. Add in the reality factor of intentional acting out and you get just about the lowest of the MMA scene.

No I think it's an accurate depiction.

I did Muay Thai (among other martial sports/arts) for a bit and most competitive Muay Thai fighters are similar (though I stress again that I do know a couple of nice guys that I used to train with) so it's not a stretch to imagine that other martial athletes share the same traits.

I think there's a difference between the chaps you met when you did Muay Thai "for a bit" and professional MMA fighters, in the same way as there's a difference between the Sunday league and the Premiership.

It's a brick wall. Best to just climb over it.

If there is then I don't see it.

By the way... "for a bit" is over 6 years with a background in other martial arts before that.

Don't be like that...

I actually have experience in combat sports and am still a fan of MMA so in fact you're the brick wall

"GSP is the only fighter I really care if he wins or not as most of the fighters are meatheads."

All the blackbelts in the world wouldn't make that statement a less clear admission that you put little to no effort in knowing the personalities of a wide array top tier fighters. You have no problem making openly unknown claims and yet you have a problem admitting that's exactly what you are doing.
6 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 10/21/11 - 5:25:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Anyway I've seen enough of your arguments on YT. This has been, and will go no where for as many pages as you see fit. Major mistake on my part to even respond to your bad claim in the first place.

No I openly admit it that's what I'm doing.

This was my reply to you earlier.

The only way I can get to know these fighters personality is how they portray themselves on TV and in public.

My opinion of them is that most of them are meatheads.

It's an opinion.

I'm about as qualified in my opinion as you are in your counter opinion.

Heck we probably even have a different definition of meathead.

So just chill out Mr Bungle.

Funny how you are such a fan of Mitrione.

If I remember correctly from the Ultimate fighter Heavyweights season, Mitrione has a similar reaction to personal conflict.

(Though admittedly... the other guys in the house were being typical meatheads)

Just watched the Penn-Diaz fight. BJ came back well considering the battering he took in the second. Whilst Diaz was impressive, I still think GSP would edge it.

Shame also to see Crocop and Penn retire, but I can understand why. Imho Penn should be a hall of famer.
6 yrs ago - Monday 10/31/11 - 2:25:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
He's pretty much guaranteed a HoF spot at this point. I was so excited when he looked like he might actually submit Diaz, but not surprisingly Diaz's submission defense was outstanding.

I'm looking forward to the continued beasting that Cerrone has been putting on the division. The first kick that staggered Siver was one of the better ones I've seen in a long time. He's been a great mix of exciting and effective.

While I don't think he'll ever get the chance, good to see Kongo doing well and reminding people that he's the only one to ever make Cain look human. The transformation between out of cage Kongo and in cage Kongo is nearly as comic book-like as his physique.

Oh and if you feel like watching one of the grossest gaps in ground game Mizu, watch the Nijem Downes fight. One judge had it 30-25 and I wouldn't call it far off..
6 yrs ago - Tuesday 11/1/11 - 10:01:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sounds interesting. Don't suppose you have a link - I've had a scan of you tube and can't find it....
6 yrs ago - Tuesday 11/1/11 - 1:40:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Don't worry - UFC137's being repeated on ESPN overnight, so I'll catch it then!
6 yrs ago - Tuesday 11/1/11 - 4:07:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
http://www.mmatko.com/ is my go to site for fights I missed, however the videos often last less than a week, so best used soon after fight nights you miss. The Nijem fight is already down sadly. It's really not an exciting fight, just a fairly awkward one.
