Hi all, this is what I've been working on for the past six month. It's about 250 woodworks, and I'm using it to launch my patreon account.
I'll be doing vlogs from my studio, and attempting to finance my work through fan support.
Thanks to everyone at r/mma, this is the first place I found any support at all, back in 2012 and this year I'm going to make some major attempts towards become a full time artist.
Yeah, it's in his book - article about it.
> John McCain had an added motivation to see the UFC banished. He was not only a huge boxing fan; his wife was tied to one of the country’s largest distributors of Anheuser-Busch, producer of Budweiser beer, a major sponsor in boxing at the time - Big John McCarthy, "Let’s Get It On!"
If you haven't read Forrest's first book, Got Fight? It's surprisingly good and HILARIOUS. There's a Cosmo-style quiz at the beginning to determine if you're manly enough to read it. I laughed out loud several times.

I always really liked this dude. Especially that awesome fight with Bosse.
He also wrote some crazy post-apocalyptic religious war book: https://www.amazon.com/Hellbound-Heavensent-Angel-War-Book-ebook/dp/B00ADVLK8W
Yes, but did you notice how Chad got off the scale left foot first?
As a child, there was a man named Jake McGilicuddy who accosted Conor's father over an unpaid debt that nearly ended in a divorce for the McGregor clan, and during that scuffle Jake kicked dirt at Conor's father with his left foot.
You think Chad stepping off the scale left foot first was an accident? Did you even read The Art of War bro? He psyched him out harder than guys who psyche the shit out of other guys a lot.
Man Andy Wang's UFC fighter biography is a gem. My personal favorite excerpt is:
>TRAINING: The first thing I do in the morning is to read a few pages of the book, "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu to get my mind in the correct framework for the day. I usually then do strength and conditioning in the morning, which can vary all the way from running and lifting weights to playing ping-pong for hand-eye coordination. Night time is specific fight training such as striking, wrestling or ground fighting technique work and sparring. I usually finish the day by giving my brain a workout by solving Calculus equations...you have to keep the mind sharp!
He handled leaving Bellator soo poorly. He cost himself a ton of money by telling everyone he wasn't resigning and that he was only going to the UFC. Dude was negotiating against himself.
Someone should mail him a copy of "Getting to Yes."
This is the closest thing I could come up with: "No one person invented percentages. The concept developed throughout history. In Ancient Rome mathematical computation were expressed in fractions of 100. This concept later evolved into percentages." - http://www.ask.com/math/invented-percentages-657eca4cb7048e89

One of the tips the doctor gives is to have a trained medical professional establish a cognitive baseline through examination, ideally before starting sport, but at least ASAP so you can see if things start to decline before it gets too bad.
if you're into rooting/roms/etc... there is an xposed module called app settings that lets you restrict permissions for an app. i think i am probably just going to uninstall the UFC app since it is really annoying with its constant notifications and if i want to watch something i will watch it on my PC or TV, not my 5" screen.

That's kind of the thing; it seems like no one has actually read it. Everyone just assumes that what 'Sean McCorkle' said is actually true. I think I've seen 1 person come out and say they've read the book, and they said although it isn't particularly pleasant, it's nowhere near as bad as he made it out to be. However, who knows if that person even fucking read it lmao.
*The Amazon reviews don't seem too bad compared to what people regurgitate https://www.amazon.com/Made-America-Dominant-Champion-History/dp/1416589953
It's a major street that is littered with those shitty used car lots that offer loans for those with zero or bad credit for a 20% APR and is filled with those strings of pennant flags lining the place.
It's a decently rough area with a lot of drugs and prostitution. The City of Portland tried to give it a lift by calling it "Avenue of Roses" but really it's just an Avenue of Sadness. There is good Chinese food to be found there though.
Ricky wants to upload it to his instagram pronto. If he did it your way, it would take much longer.
That said, just ask someone to take the photo for you!
Edit: Look how happy they look!
Literally wrote the book on Judo.
Most journalists can't put together an article.
I think it has to do with his book, Made in America: The Most Dominant Champion in UFC History where he admits to just being a shitty human being.
You gotta dig around but that's what most sources say. If you purchase a PPV outside the US, the price is close to 30 in most developed countries. Employees of cable providers (Comcast specifically) do not get charged the cable provider cut and pay $30 for the PPVs. Also it came out when the WWE came out with the WWE network and was fighting with the cable companies and trying to negotiate. The general consensus is that it is a range between 40-60%. Top boxers get paid a huge portion of the gate and they generally fight in areas where they get additional money (MGM pays Floyd to fight in Vegas as he brings a lot of gamblers all over the world to their hotels). Also boxing is a very popular international sport and there are separate deals for different countries. PPV is a US model.
I've been on Reddit for 7+ years, I've heard more complaining about 'the double standard of He-man" than I have about Barbie.
Also, as an aside, there's a doc series on Netflix called - "The Toys That Made Us" - that I recommend.
All about toys in the 80's, they Barbie, He-Man, GI-Joe era.
They talk to all the people who created them and worked for those companies during that time and how they came up with certain toys, what the dynamics were at the time etc.
Interesting bit about Barbie they say was she was made those dimensions to facilitate dressing her and so clothes would fit her easily.
He's saying he's "ready right now" because GSP's camp was talking about how they weren't offered a fight and instead just floated an idea about Lawler, who wasn't ready anyway. It's a response to GSP, not a reversal from pulling out of the Cerrone fight
Edit: Source http://www.espn.com/mma/story/_/id/17825946/healthy-robbie-lawler-takes-issue-georges-st-pierre-comments-mma
>"I think everyone just kind of assumes [health] is the issue, but that's not the facts," Lawler said. "It's one of those things where I wanted to take a step back and realize what I wanted and why I wanted it. My whole life I've went out there and strived, and this time I needed to take a step back, relax and not rush it -- make sure all the pieces were in the perfect place."<
>"He says he was offered a fight against me but I wasn't healthy or whatever. He's basically trying to read between the lines like other people, not knowing what's the matter with me," Lawler said. "Nothing is the matter with me. Do you accept the fight or not? That's the real question, right? Because I'm ready to fight right now.<
It will be very interesting to see what happened, but check this out. Brad Pickett was on the OFT podcast on Sunday and when asked his opinion on the season he says it wasnt happening. Said he had a fighter tryout and its not going to happen. Mentioned DJ being unhappy, not sure if thats the reason but worth a listen. Listen at 43 minutes for when he says it. 38:50 for the start of the interview.
best take down defence i have seen in a long while, every freaking time she did it, she is so fit. Amazing fighter. "To sum it all up picture":
I just started paying attention to MMA in early 2017, so I was only tangentially aware of Matt Hughes' career, but I just dug up that Hughes vs. Trigg II fight referenced in the promo .... wow.
Hughes survives a knee to the groin and a deep RNC, lifts Trigg off the ground, carries him all the way across the octagon, and then slams him as the crowd -- and Bruce Buffer -- go completely apeshit. Vanilla Ice and Cindy Crawford, eat your fucking hearts out.
It's funny that 2005 was a full 12 years before my attention turned to MMA, yet the goosebumps still showed up for that slam and the realization that I've missed the heydays of some of the greatest to ever step inside the cage. Better late than never, I suppose :)
Hughes vs. Trigg II
The dude in the video, Geoff Thompson, has an interesting story. Went to learn karate as a kid to protect himself, got molested by his instructor, and then spent life aimlessly working in a factory during the day at fucking people up as a bouncer at night. He eventually got into writing and won a BAFTA award. He's put out a ton of martial arts instructionals, self help books, and written a few feature length films. A year or two ago he stepped away from social media, not sure what he's been up to since.
His autobiography is worth a read.
There is literally books written about Ali and his past. Why are people making out like Conor is one making this up.
Even #40 on youtube trending is a deep analysis of what Conor said last week, and delves deep into Alis past, you can watch that part here:
So no, the source is not Conor. It's multiple books, news articles, investigative journalists, the NYPD, the FBI, and the United States Government.
If you want to know more about DW's character, then you might want to consider reading the book about him that his mother, June White, wrote. It feels refreshing typing June White online, because if you do so on the UG your post will get deleted and you'll likely be banned. Bringing up this book will has the same consequences. Kind of like the time they were banning people who posted anything about Lorenzo's accidental public late night hookup tweet to a ring girl.
moderately popular but very critically acclaimed author, he wrote books that could double as doorstops or cinderblocks (huge/long, books that are tough reads but also supposedly very rewarding for those who get through them).
Infinite Jest is probably his most famous work. I started it but never finished it.
If you haven't seen this boy do I envy you. You get to watch Brendan impose his gameplan on a decorated bjj champ in what is probably the most exciting 21 minutes of grappling ever recorded.
Some of you may have already seen my post yesterday in r/UFC, however a couple people recommended I post this here as well.

If anybody has any questions, I'd be happy to provide answers.
There are books on the law of attraction. One such recent book is 'The Secret', but there are other books that focus on the principle, such as 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill.
Basically, the philosophy of it is, if you do not feel or think what you want, it will not happen and likewise any negative thought on a subject will continue the negativity. Therefore, only positive things should be thought and said out loud and internally. The theory being that the energy put out is received back into the self.
The "power of will" is a force, basically. If you have enough willpower and faith to make something happen, it has to happen.
I dunno dude. Four Fight of the Nights, two Fight of the Years(Guida Vs Sanchez), and two submission of the nights. His record is 29-11. Only 9 went to a decision.
Granted his last fight against Pettis was a little 'safe', for lack of a better term(call it whatever you want I'm calling it safe), but ugly wins are better than a loss when you're looking for a title shot in the UFC lightweight division and pushing 30. He's now on a four fight win streak in what is undoubtedly the toughest weight class in the UFC right now. He will be 30 in December and considering Jim Miller went on a 7 fight streak without a title shot and Gray Maynard was 10-0 before he had a chance...
Maybe it's all preference. I like a good take down just as much as a nice jab. (shrug)
A couple weeks ago someone asked "You only have one chance to get a friend into UFC, which fight do you show him?". This was my choice. Clay Guida Vs. Tyson Griffin (sorry it's Hulu)
TL;DR : I disagree.
I could be completely wrong (and most likely am), but something seems a bit off about the camp lately. McGregor has skyrocketed even further since the Mendes fight, and soon after, Pendred loses in Dublin looking worse than usual in the cage and emotional at the weigh-in, and has now retired because he has 'lost passion' for the sport. To add to that, Holahan loses in pretty decisive fashion, again in Dublin, and today posts something like this.
Maybe the 'closeness' of the team is lessening and the focus shifting to concentrate on McGregor and Nelson (and maybe even Artem to an extent, we'll see how the next few weeks pan out) and the rest of the guys are feeling alienated.
Whether there is any truth to that, I don't know, but regardless, good to see Pendred get out while he's still healthy and he's pretty well connected so I'd say he has a good life ahead of himself. Good luck to him.
"If a woman is abused, why doesn't she call the police and do it the right way?"
Just shy of 1 in 3 women (31%) just won't call police about domestic violence issues, the most commonly cited reasons being 1: the assailant prevented it, 2: she had no phone, 3: she did not think police would help, 4: she did not want to get her assailant in trouble and 5: she did not want people to know.
I could've swore this happened in one of Chris Leben's earlier or even amateur fights.. I just can't find it right now.
edit: ahh, here we go:
In the book he recounts his 2003 amateur bout in which he was choked unconscious by Otto Olson but the referee didn't catch it. Leben says he "had a dream" during the fight, woke up and then knocked Olson out.
Leben vs. Otto Olson
Thanks for the questions everybody. Make sure you watch PFL Season 2 on ESPN2 and ESPN+ . Starts May 9th in New York and I will be announcing cageside! Also, please check out my book. I'm proud of it. Keep swingin'!
It works for me because it limits the calories I take in. IMO (and I'm no expert) it's like people who don't shop online to save money. $1 spent on amazon takes as much out of your wallet as $1 spent at the mall, but if limiting yourself to not shopping online means you only buy what you need and end up with more dollars in your wallet at the end of the year more power to you. IMO a calorie eaten when IM is the same as calories eaten when not fasting, but if I limit myself to 8 hours a day of eating I end up eating fewer calories. The problem for me is that I can't train hard fasted (some people can and they in fact enjoy it more and supposedly get more out of it). I can function, work, and sleep fine, but training (I don't do mma, but I weight train and long-distance run though not anywhere near an elite level) isn't an option fasted, so scheduling is a little tricky.
I use this android app fwiw for timing and letting me know when I can eat - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastapp&hl=en_CA - it's free and does the trick. I don't know if there are other, better apps.
The kanji is a quote from The Art of War, most famously sown onto the Furinkazan banners of Takeda Shingen's samurais.
It's a battle philosophy using wind, forest, fire and mountain as metaphors, which is also appropriate for martial arts.
疾如風 - swift like wind
徐如林 - serene like forest
侵掠如火 - unstoppable like fire
不動如山 - immovable like mountain
The original quote had 2 more:
難知如陰 - untraceable like (the stars behind) clouds
動如雷震 - action like thunder
This script is mining Monero (XMR). Monero is a currency designed to be mined best by CPUs, although in practice GPUs are a little better at it.
If you're getting 50 H/s on 80 W and paying $0.12/kWh for electricity, then you'd be generating about $0.08/day in revenue while using $0.19/day in electricity, for a total loss of about -$0.11/day.
Of course, the website owner doesn't pay your electricity bill. If they have 10,000 people mining for them at any moment, that translates to about $800/day in revenue while costing their users $1,900/day in electricity.
Incase anyone doesn't understand why this story with Mark Henry is important, Henry is legitimately considered one of the strongest human beings to have ever lived and has set records across multiple fields that still stand to this day, many even whilst injured.
Also he did this in his youth, before he ever near his physical prime. So yeah, Vince tried to outdo a man who could have easily become the undeniable strongest man in history.
I feel like Ronda doesn't deserve a lot of the hate she got, but even the most die hard Ronda fans has to admit that after posting this she deserved a lot of it.
@MMAjunkieDerek: For those who didn't see it on the broadcast, Fedor stood up after it was called and was so wobbly he almost fell over.
I think more people should try this. I'd listen to the commentary of other fans if they were insightful.

To help to drive your point home: Google ngram viewer for Elvis Presley, Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali,Mike Tyson,Wladimir Klitschko,Floyd Mayweather
Muhammad Ali was global superstar same level as Elvis. Mike Tyson was well known name outside the sport and still is. Mayweather is sports celebrity in US and Klitschko in Ukraine and Germany but not at the same level.
Funny, that almost happened during Wandy vs. Bisping a few years back. Wandy dropped Bisping in the last 10 seconds and almost soccer kicked his head off his shoulders before pulling back at the last second. Gotta think it was instinctive after all those years in PRIDE. Found a gif here, sorry for tinypic it's all I could find
Ferg is really max with a pair of these
I don't get why people don't make the gifs themselves instead of requesting them.
Upload to Gfycat or Imgur.
Here is the move of the fight. It took about 5 minutes to make, uploading included.
Maeda is one of my heroes, and in my research I've only been able to find one real biography written about him. It's never been translated from Japanese, so it's a dream of mine to eventually commission someone to republish it in English. https://www.amazon.com/dp/4093792135/
probably the one where the europeans killed most of the native americans because they wanted their land. just a guess though.
EDIT: if you're seriously too dense to understand this and need a source, read Colonial Genocide in Indigenous North America which examines the california genocide.
Yup, but you can buy a fight worn ribbon for only $200!

Ray Borg should invest in a pair of these babies:
"Just in the last 12 months St-Pierre has signed lucrative endorsement deals with companies such as Coca-Cola, Google and Bacardi. He's got a deal with HarperCollins to write a book that he describes as part autobiography and part philosophy ("kind of like 'The Art of War,'" St-Pierre said). He's also renewed his apparel deal with Under Armour and signed one with noted MMA equipment manufacturer Hayabusa" -USA Today
Plus he does one-off commercials for TV shows/channels and products like the Nexus 7.
> And he was fat as shit.
Reminds me of this book: a well-earned retirement.
edit to quote the passage directly:
> I saw a fat happy old guy once in his Cadillac on the freeway. He had the A/C going, Pointer Sisters on the CD, puffing on a stogie. His license plate:
> DUES PD
> The professional keeps his eye on the doughnut and not on the hole. He reminds himself it's better to be in the arena, getting stomped by the bull, than to be up in the stands or out in the parking lot.

For all yall thinking, "what in the fuck is this shit?", I have done some googling. Apparently this guy was a fairly popular yoga instructor around the LA area in the late 90's when the practice was really taking off. There was some demand for a childrens yoga tape, so he made one. This video is cut together from that to make it seem super creepy.
The amazon reviews for the tape are mixed, but it seems pretty harmless.
Yep totally, that's why Cody talked with him on the phone everyday and wrote an entire fucking book about him. Don't be a jabroni. Cody met Maddox when he was 20, and Maddox was 5, a long time before he ever had cameras on him.
TunnelBear is legit. I know a guy that works there. They're not like one of those shady free VPNs, their free one only comes with 500MB of use per month which isn't much. Probably wouldn't get through a single 5 rounder in HD. $7/mo otherwise.
Luckily for fight pass all you need to do is log in from a different region then you can turn it off.
If you haven't yet, buy and read Forrest's book. I don't care who helped him write it, whoever it was effectively wrote in a way where you read it in his voice. Endlessly funny and entertaining crazy stories and awesome life advice.
From the back cover: "Wondering why you should purchase this book when there are other titles written by much higher-caliber fighters? Well, Forrest Griffin is not as good-looking as those guys. He's not as smart as them or as athletically endowed. And let's face it, neither are you.
If you get off on having your face rearranged, though, Got Fight? is for you. This is a manifesto more strategic than Sun Tzu's The Art of War, more philosophical than Bruce Lee's Tao of Jeet Kune Do. In these pages you will learn about true mental toughness—whether it's for scraping it out in the Octagon or picking up chicks. You will learn about the mental defects that made Forrest Griffin into the abomination he is today and how you can use your shortcomings to become equally horrible."
Decided to take a look at their financials, They took a 14 million dollar loss last year due to thin margins and high overhead. I don't know what percentage of the overhead was for advertising though, they may be operating at a loss to increase long term growth, but it's more likely to me they are poorly managed.
They had a ridiculous amount of accounts payable at the end of 2014 too(28 million), over 10 million more than their receivables. Considering the negative cash flow they will probably have to take on debt to pay it. Their current interest expense is very low though, so they have a minimal amount of debt and can probably take on more, but I imagine they will be paying very high interest on that debt considering these financial statements.
Unless they are able to generate more net income they probably can't fund the gym long-term.
The same as any other 33 year old female non-smoker living in Pleasant Hill, CA.
Sorry, gotta go with /u/donnie_brasco here, being a professional athlete, MMA fighter specifically, not buying health insurance is perhaps not the best move.
>Under the health care law, insurance companies can account for only 5 things when setting premiums.
>Age: Premiums can be up to 3 times higher for older people than for younger ones.
>Location: Where you live has a big effect on your premiums. Differences in competition, state and local rules, and cost of living account for this.
>Tobacco use: Insurers can charge tobacco users up to 50% more than those who don’t use tobacco.
>Individual vs. family enrollment: Insurers can charge more for a plan that also covers a spouse and/or dependents.
>Plan category: There are five plan categories – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and catastrophic. The categories are based on how you and the plan share costs. Bronze plans usually have lower monthly premiums and higher out-of-pocket costs when you get care. Platinum plans usually have the highest premiums and lowest out-of-pocket costs.

Pulling guard didn't end well for this girl (circa 2009 at a nogi grappling tournament):
Opponent tries to pull/jump guard, Rousey throws her with uchi mata, takes side control with kesa gatame, and finishes her with arm bar from kesa (near side arm over the inside thigh as the fulcrum and farside leg applying the force). Bread and butter, basic judo applied with superhuman perfection.
McGregor uses a lot of strategy outside of the octagon, whereas pure fighters only care about what happens inside the octagon. The Art of War would agree with McGregor's approach managing both well, people can argue for the one they prefer.
"However by his imprudent use of what he pungently referred to as a 'd--- pill' he has not only lost a year of his career but an estimated nine million dollars."
HAHAHA, so he went to the panel and straight up said that he was taking dick pills, using that terminology.
An Ali quote from a Playboy interview
"A black man should be killed if he's messing with a white woman." When the interviewer asked about black women crossing the colour barrier, Ali responded: "Then she dies. Kill her, too."
> The one-three-two or jab, right straight, left hook
Guessing you meant "jab, left hook, right straight"
Good article, as usual! Haislet's book can be downloaded here it's some high quality sweet science and worth a read.
Latest pod episode talking about UFC and possibly having Shrooms
To put that in perspective, the capacity of the Saitama Arena is a maximum of 22,500 for when MMA events take place. UFC 192, which was kind of a mid-tier event, had 14622 in attendance.
Run a marathon? Were we watching the same fight? Francis' hands were at his knees by the third. Maybe he still has KO power when exhausted, but his mouth will be agape and more susceptible to a KO.
Don't get me wrong, Francis still has a good chance to win, I just think the later it goes, the more it favors Lewis, especially considering his ability to go the distance and KO guys in late rounds
hey, F*ing its white collar crime. That's a step above the usual F*ing domestic assault and drug charges you see in other major sports.
The UFC really is home to more educated, classier athletes. F***k.
I am in the US. I used ExpressVPN and the UFC app on my AppleTV 4.
I made ExpressVPN make it look like I was in Europe. I bought the fight for 36$ USD with PayPal on the UFC app.
I had zero issues all night. So I wouldn't place blame on Neulion.
Step 1: Get a 1-month VPN subscription. I use IPVanish, but that's just a personal preference.
Step 2: Connect to a european server. I use the Czech Republic.
Step 3: Purchase the PPV through for 18 or euros.
Step 4: Turn off VPN.
Step 5: Watch PPV.
Disc: I don't know if you can purchase the ppv using a card with an American address, I use my Cypriot card for it. I doubt it makes any difference since I still purchase through a different country, but you should still be cautious.

Buying his book helps at least a little doesn't it?
When a combat sport's just getting started out, the talent pool is thin, so the weight classes are closer together. For the first few UFCs, there was just the UFC Tournament Champion, of an openweight tournament.
Then at UFC 12 we had 'heavyweights' (over 200 lb) and 'lightweights' (under 200 lb).
Then at UFC 16 we had lightweight (170-), middleweight (170-200), and heavyweight (200+).
Bantamweight (155-) was added at UFC 26, with lightweight becoming 155-170.
The current weight classes, minus everything below lightweight, were adopted at UFC 31.
Because, really- in the early 90s, it was tough enough for the UFC to find two competent people to beat the snot out of each other without adding the additional complication that they had to weigh within fifteen pounds of each other. Even when they didn't have that restriction, they had to drag in guys like these.
WMMA is in the same place at the moment. You couldn't find enough women of anything approaching professional quality to have a champion and a Challenger #1-5 in the number of weight classes there are for the men.
(Boxing, being a considerably bigger, mature, and well-established fight sport, has 17 weight classes, separated by as little as three pounds!)

I make a couple sketches the day before the event, and then live sketch whatever happens throughout. Some funny stuff, sometimes chronicling pivotal moments. Tell you what, I'll try to incorporate this into my pre fight sketches. Thanks for the suggestion.
these are the sketches from the last event
With coleman being in the headlines asking for donations, figured it would be worth posting LK's patreon page
Lawrence does amazing work, and he does it for free. In this day and age we shouldn't need some advertisement infested media group for a talented man like Lawrence to work his craft, so if you got a few bucks to spare put some in his G-string.
You know that one fight story in his book barbrawler always sounded a bit sus to me.
So we’re packing into this little bity place over on Walnut, right? We’re halfway through the night, everything’s going all right. You know what I mean? All of a sudden, I notice this dude eyeballin’ me from across the bar. And I don’t know if this dude wants to freak me or fight me. The insane, crazy eyes. Right? So I walk over to this guy. He’s this big, cut Mexican dude and I look at him and I say “Yo, ese, unless you want to get your ass torn apart… you’d better get that look off your face. I had to, man. You gotta make the first move. Always make the first move, you know what I’m saying? Well, hey, he won’t stop staring me down and we’re like eyeball to eyeball, his grill is right up in mine. It feels like an eternity son, right? Finally… he just opens up his mouth and says “I guess you gon’ have to tear my ass apart, homes." So what did i do? Took him to the back alley. And I tore his ass apart!!!

You know the book The 4-Hour Workweek? In the beginning of the book, the author mentions how he won a martial arts tournament, even though has no martial arts training. He exploited a loophole in the rules: if a fighter gets out the ring, he loses. I guess it was supposed to discourage fighters abandoning the fight or something. And that's what he did: he "won" the tournament by just shoving trained martial artists outside the bounds; they were trying to fight, he just pushed. The organizers had to award him, because in accordance with the rules, he "won".
Just something I remember whenever I hear someone saying Condit won that fight.
I actually whipped up a spreadsheet with all the fights on FightPass from UFC, Pride, Strikeforce, and WEC in order with links to their wiki's. Fun to watch them all in order and see the development of not just the UFC, but all of it!

The same age, era and color that boxer Floyd Patterson considered him a massive racist and said "Clay is so young and has been misled by the wrong people... He might as well have joined the Ku Klux Klan."

After spending about 30 minutes translating this with the next to nothing Korean language skill I have, I've determined these hashtags were barely worth reading.
Ugh, unfortunately he is probably right.
It's easy to suggest that the first Weidman fight had a real, tangible effect on the fortitude of his chin. While I'm sure this DID in fact have a real effect, I'm sure that the simple idea of 17 years fighting professionally in MMA has done just as much.
In honour of the type of punishment Anderson was able to take at one point in his career, I present my pick for the premiere example of his chin on display
Apologies for tinypic in advance, couldn't find it elsewhere...
There's a great interview of Rivera saying this was the most demoralizing thing he's experienced in his career.
i thought MRSA was just staph that had antibiotic resistance? the S in MRSA is Staph.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by a type of staph bacteria that's become resistant to many of the antibiotics used to treat ordinary staph infections
Another type of MRSA infection has occurred in the wider community — among healthy people. This form, community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA), often begins as a painful skin boil. It's spread by skin-to-skin contact. At-risk populations include groups such as high school wrestlers, child care workers and people who live in crowded conditions.
I'm not 100% sure but I think this may be related to the Jason Ellis Sirius radio show or it could be "Ellis Mania" which is like an Internet show. Is it the same thing? I have no idea.
It appears there was a live event in Vegas recently.

Found this on Facebook with this note:

Cain was around +175 so each 100 gets you 175, Vegas odds are usually lower than online plus there is a fee. Mayweather probably got somewhere between 300-350k for the win and that's all profit he gets his bet back.
Here is some of Mayweather's other bets, he apparently only publicizes his wins.
Cain Velasquez would make a good Bison.
I think the UFC should fit the bill or at least a decent portion of it but the reason the New york state athletic commission has become strict in regards to the medicals, etc, is related to the case of the former heavyweight boxer magomed Abdusalamov. For anyone that doesn't know about what happened to him I'll post a few links.
Basically the NYSAC were extremely incompetent in his after fight care and he ended up with a serious brain injury and is in a terrible condition day to day right now. I think all these measures were put into place after a thorough investigation into Abdusalamov's care post fight.
The athletic commission are trying to cover their asses basically.
Because you can’t test for CTE until someone is already dead. Plus medical clearances in MMA are a joke, unless you’re literally dying most commissions will clear you.
Kevin Lee fought with staph, something that’s dangerous for both him and his opponent, yet was cleared with no issue despite it being pretty obvious that he had staph.
Yeeeaaa not sure if I agree with you.
This was a last December...
This was 9 years ago...
To me, that looks like a very real difference. And while Rivera may be a fraction of the quality of fighter that Weidman is, he still hits hard as fuck.
I'm kinda happy he's going out now. Last chance for glory and all that... Another 2 or 3 fight and he'd be moving around like those 90's Batsuits - y'know the ones where they couldn't move their neck.
They did actually run a proper report here:
....but guess they have to have at least one professionally offended companion piece seeing as it's the Guardian. I read the paper, but they really need to stop being triggered quite so much. This story being a prime example.
Interesting there's no comments enabled, or named byline, given the editorial style the article lapses into at the end.
It's all down to a lack of numbers. Check out the average weight distribution of American men. See how most guys are around 170-200 lbs, with the mean around 195lbs. For reference, the average height is around 5'9.5". Note this is the general population, so the majority would be out of shape. Hypothetically assuming these guys trained to be in peak fitness for MMA, they would be around 160-190 instead. That's why FW-WW is so damn stacked - and you can confirm this by looking to see that those divisions in the UFC do indeed have the largest rosters.
Now see how few guys are over 230lbs (HW) on the chart. Added to the fact that the big guys are in higher demand by other sports and you can see why the HW division is so thin in both talent and numbers.
It only looks smaller when you spread it out, neither the mass nor the volume is reduced by spreading it thin.
She would still be giving up almost 6% of her body weight in muscle. Lets do a little math, lets say she has the muscle mass of your average male, lets give her the high end of about 50% so the math is simple.
Of her body weight (assuming her 175 statement is accurate) 87.5 lbs of her is muscle, if she were to cut 10 lbs of muscle she would be giving up over 11% of her muscle mass. That is giving her the muscle mass of a high end male. If we use the female high end of 39% muscle mass then she will be cutting almost 15% of her muscle mass.
It's a lot of meat, no matter how you choose to slice it.
Oh and the %s came from this site, hardly definitive but I was just throwing ball park figures around.
Houston Alexander ... debuts with a 0:48sec TKO vs Keith Jardine then wins again at 1:01 of the 1st round vs Alessio Sakara by TKO. That dude was a BMF for about a little bit at that time during the UFC.
