Anything MMA, except thumb wrestling

Mighty Mouse seems to be getting better.  He does pretty much everything well but he used to be all about the judges score cards, now he has finished three fighters in a row.  

 

Look out world, Demetrious is going to make you care about flyweights.

Haha, gotta watch this fight. Gotta watch this card!

You know what is CRAZY though, Anderson Silva grabbing Chael Sonnen's shorts in their second fight. It was for a stupidly long time. He softened Chael up a lot as he did it.

Kennedy was bending the rules himself with that flurry to end the 2nd round:

I saw that too, must be why Big John decided to give Yoel the benefit of the doubt.

Kennedy's directing his anger at the wrong one, should be more pissed with the ref than anybody.

 

Exactly. I did not like it, but the worst thing that would have happened was a point deduction. It would not have mattered in the end. It might be a little bit of poor sportsmanship, but Big John needs to be a little more proactive there.

"He's a legit force, bigger than I've ever seen," White told Ariel Helwani after the fight. "Bigger than Brock Lesnar. Let's just say we're way over budget. The numbers, we attributed it to Conor."

 

White also confirmed that McGregor was bigger than "king" Georges St. Pierre.

 

Dana just can't help himself......

He loves stretching the truth, that's for sure. 

 

 

One thing I can say though is that McGregor gives the 145lb division a much-needed boost of excitement. Featherweight's had its moments but Aldo isn't the most exciting champ to represent the weight class.

What am I missing here? Is there a rule I don't know about that's being broken in that video? (Did not watch the event.)

He is holding on to his glove with one hand and pummeling him with the other.

Fishhook on the wrist.

 

 

 

Thanks, gents. I was unaware that you can not do that in MMA.

Its rare that it happens while standing, but I've heard refs warn fighters while grappling to not grab the gloves like that.

Yep, I was thinking that was the only time I have seen it while standing.

Cung Le tests positive for HGH:

Not that we needed a test to know that he was juiced out of his mind. 

 

Yeah, that is the least surprising suspension ever. It is unfortunate, but I don't think anyone was caught off guard by that one. My first thought when i saw it yesterday, was "at least he lost the fight." There would have been a lot more controversy if he actually won.

Rory Mac vs. Tarec Saffedine tonight on FS1

 

Not much interest in the rest of the card, but I'll watch the main event.

 

If Tarec can keep it standing, he's got a shot at pulling the upset. Picking Rory Mac by 2nd Round (T)KO.
