Forgot to mention - got my BJJ purple belt a couple weeks ago.

***OFFICIAL NOTICE***: Any further talk of Ronda Rousey vs (a TUF Contestant/A male bantanweight / a bear / a horse sized duck / steven segal / whatever ) -- someone else start a new thread and

Random nerd on reddit doing the lords work.   a gif of every KO of the night since UFC started awarding the Bonus 11 years ago at UFC61.   http://imgur.com/a/OfR0P

Dumb casual guy question here:

Is a fight immediately stopped as soon as a guy loses consciousness? Or is it stopped to protect the ko'ed fighter from being hit, which wouldn't be necessary if a blow is landed at the bell that knocks the fighter out. Is it possible to be hit right at the bell, go unconscious after the bell, and still win a decision?

Watching back, the ref was just putting his arm up to wave it as the horn sounded.

I wish the Cowboy fight would have gone longer.  Cerrone was right on point when he was talking before the fight Perrys wrestling & jj suck!  Perry needs a guy like Usman, Till, Lawler, Stephen Thompson, etc.  The kid is a Justin Gathje, and fans love that style.

With the way Cerrone is prone to being hurt by body shots, I wanted that fight over as soon as possible.

And Perry's not even close to being ready for the type of guys you listed.

It depends on the ref. The fight should be stopped immediately when a fighter falls like Jung did yesterday. Sometimes, though, refs aren't all the ball.

However, if the fight hasn't been called by the horn, the fighter is supposed to be able to get up on his own and get back to his corner. If he can't, the fight could be called at the 5:00-minute mark.

I agree, all the guys I listed are superior to Perry.  I'm just trying to make the point that he needs matchups with stand up guys.   The stand up / push fwd style is a crowd pleaser.  Mike needs to get his ground game up though.  Cowboy knew it sucked thats why he was going for the clinch takedown immediately.

Michael Bisping was knocked unconscious by Anderson Silva at the end of a round. The ref allowed the fight to continue and Bisping (who is British) won a crooked decision in England.

Insane.  The Korean Zombie was up and scorecards confirmed he had fight locked up before the KO.  He was up 39-37 on (2) of the judges cards going into the 5th round.  One judge had it even.

Before the KO there was no way it was gonna be a 10-8 round, so it was a 100% win if he doesn't get KO'ed in the final second.

We saw another timeout for a low blow in the Pennington/DeRandamie fight. Is the vag an especially vulnerable spot like nuts are? The ladies get 5 minutes for a groin shot but I wonder if it's any worse than getting hit in the kidneys or chin.

Since when is Usman a stand up fighter?

Mike Perry is a brawler and fans love him. Hell, I love him. But the UFC basically used him up and he is near the end of the line already.

I read this a while ago about said topic when this came up on reddit a while back

===========

As I said in the other comment I have experience in martial arts, and I've seen several unfortunate women take kicks to the nether regions, women who stupidly didn't wear a pelvic protector, assuming that since they didn't have balls they wouldn't need them. That is a sensitive, fragile area for women as well, it's just largely unknown because it's a lot harder to hit than it is on a guy. A strong enough blow can damage the tissues of the vulva, cause ripping or tearing, and it can also break or shatter the pelvis. I may not be a woman, but I've had the training to know the medical facts about how physical blows affect parts of the body on both genders.

Guess I should find some video for the last 2 matches.

 

What happened in the Pena match? The numbers say Trizano pretty much owned him, but good ‘ol Sal gave the decision to Pena. 

 

Yes, you should watch the last two.

And Pena didn't seem to have a real plan when "pick my opponent apart standing" didn't work.

I agree with all of that, except I can't stand him. Dude's a bigtime turd who talks like he's on top of the heap.

I'll take that guy's word for it. It's just weird that we never hear about it in combat sports or otherwise. Everyone knows a hit to the balls is extremely painful but you never see the female version mentioned in media/entertainment.

I have no idea but I am sure the feelings are MUCH different.

The point he made about it not happening much to women because of the location of the equipment is interesting.

With guys, most sports can present this issue but with girls, it sounds like you basically need a c_nt punt for it to happen which is fairly rare in the normal sports women participate in.

Seen a bunch of people talking up Cerrone vs. McGregor since this last card, and it feels like I'm taking crazy pills. I certainly don't care about Cerrone like that.

CmG will wreck him.  don't really wanna see it.

Good fight for Diaz.  I like both his and Masividals styles.

Everyone really thinks Cerrone is easy work for CM?  I think Cerrone is a more well rounded fighter.  There was a reason Cowboy moved up though.  He started sucking at 155 and the weight cut was taking too much out of him.  Iirc from Rogan.  Masvidal was also saying he wanted to go try 155 recently.  They need a 165.

The fighters, coaches and managers need to pick the correct division for each person. I'm not sure how Calvillo can cut weight the point of collapse, miss weight by 3 pounds and still believe she's a strawweight.

Cerrone is really good everywhere but not great anywhere, imo.  

 

Any fighter that wants to stand and throw with CMG is probably in for a long night.  Cerrone isn't good enough with offensive takedowns to take over the fight that way.  Despite how he looked against Khabob, CMG is better at escaping bottom positions than Cerrone is imposing them.

 

Plus, I bet Cerrone believes he's good enough to throw hands with Connor and see what happens.   CmG finishes this fight in under 2 rounds.

12:30 here already and I'll probably stay up just until Botelho/Calvillo. Botelho looked great in her UFC showings so far and I was curious to see how she'd fare against more of a tenacious wrestler type, but with Calvillo looking to be at death's door at the weigh-in (seriously, that was just scary, hope she moves up), it's hard to know what to expect.

Only other fight I'd care to watch is the main, where I'm torn 'cause they're both super likable and damn good fighters. It's so much easier when it's a nice guy against the Colbys of the world.

So Phil Davis is fulfilling about 5% of his potential. What a waste.

yeah i would love to figure out why some guys with such high potential never reach it. You have to think a big factor is training and camp they are at training correctly, but some of the really good camps have had fighters crap out too

So i can't figure out if i am a bad MMA fan or what, but i am definitely more excited for Tito-Chuck 3 than the UFC card this weekend.

Line is Chuck -260, Tito +220.   i guess the line makers haven't realized Chuck retired like 5 years ago? I think a bet on Tito isn't too bad of an idea

Nobody's (literally) buying this nonsense, right?

I really don't think I've ever witnessed a more lifeless promo from a promoter in my life. Saying more or less "I really dont know the other fighters on the card" probably isn't going to garner buys. That said, I'll watch it before whatever the UFC card is.

I think Oscar's got a reality check as we've gotten closer to the fight. Just read they lowered the PPV a couple days ago to $39.99. Alternatively read you can get for $19.99 thru the Fite TV app on black Friday. https://mmainsight.com/ufc/chuck-liddell-vs-tito-ortiz-3-pay-per-view-prices-lowered    

LOL I'm too lazy to look but it seems like Chuck retired like a decade ago. Not a gambler but I'd bet Tito. I'd wager we'll see a chemically enhanced Chuck

He's a very good boxing promoter, for better or worse. You'd think he'd be a bit better prepared. He might also just be ####### coked off his ###.

Wow is that really the line?  I'd be on Tito all day.  Chuck has looked horrendously slow hitting pads, and I'm guessing his gas tank will be pretty bad as well.

I'd probably drop $5 max to see this if it was convenient, gotta think the PPV doesn't do very well.

De la Hoya reportedly didn't even show up for the Chuck "lie Dell" and Ortiz ceremonial weigh in. :lol:

Would be interested in seeing those contracts as de la hoyas been pimping their paydays and attendance. But it's fairly obvious this is gonna tank hard. (And likely why de la hoyas checked out leading up to this)

It’s amazing how little these guys make.

But they got my $39.99. I’ll be watching - the wife’s all-time favorite fighter is Chuck, so there’s no way she’s not seeing this.

I read that Chuck and Tito's total pay is tied highly to attendance and ppv numbers.

There are three fighters making more than the UFC gives a debut fighter.

And that’s just crazy.

ETA: To be clear, I think Chuck and Tito are making about the correct amount. It’s just amazing to me that there’s guys who train and train for weeks and make $1500 for a fight.
