Eugene interviewed Steve about fighting for Vice a few weeks back

Watch St-Pierre vs Condit, including the build-up and preparation, and aftermath. that man is so sportsmanlike that he invokes an image of the pre-professional days of sport.

That's what I'm trying to say, or at least where I am coming from.

Physically, MMA is no more useful than anything else. Like running and weight training.

This is a ridiculous statement. You have quite clearly never trained in a combat sport. I've done my fair share of running and weightlifting, I've never beem as fit and strong as I am now.

I watched UFC twice, the first time, it was two dudes who slapped each other once or twice and then they dry-humped for several minutes until one tapped out. I thought I'd give it one more chance, the second time the two dudes in the fight slapped each other one or twice, kicked each other once or twice, and then dry humped for several minutes until one tapped out. I'm not interested in watching two dudes in boxer-brief speedos dry hump. I don't care that it's in an octagon. It's bullshit. WWF may be all fake and stupid, but at least there's a storyline and no dry humping.

Rolling regularly is better cardio than the 50 miles/wk or so of utilitarian bike riding that I also do. It is also a time to be social, talk about goofy shit, and not think about work. All in all, I am a much better person for it. I'd also like to think that I am a fairly respectful and "normal" person. I have also done more traditional martial arts which are fine too, but something completely different.


That sounds great, and I believe you.

At the very least, I'm glad I've impacted your wording.

I find it occasionally entertaining to watch. For my own part regardless of my training I personally don't believe in participating in sport-fighting competition, though I have no beef with friends and teachers who do so.

Despite most of the fans looking like complete dickheads - I really like it. It's what Bruce Lee wanted to see too, and I like Bruce Lee. He's in my head.

Yeah. I understand that. I didn't sub grappling at all till I started doing it about four years ago, and by this point I am only starting to figure it out. It is like a weird combination of chess and twister and rock-scissors-paper. It is also not very telegenic at times, which is why you see all the ref stand-ups in the UFC. ...which can be crap. In places where more people are familiar with groundfighting (Brazil, Japan, Russia) MMA gets more respect because more people actually know what is going on and are patient enough to watch it.

Is anybody watching the St. Pierre - Diaz fight this weekend?

If you're in NYC I'll chip in for the PPV. Otherwise I'll be hitting some shitty sports bar... Anybody got any ideas as to who might be showing it in Brooklyn?

I'll be watching it from the other side of the continent. Heading to an acquaintance's to watch; every sports bar for 200 km will be packed beyond imagining. GSP fights always draw crazy crowds out here.

Any other Khabib fanboys around?

It takes a very special person to make me excited and nervous about the idea of two men fighting for glory.

I will be going to the pub tomorrow -- alone and drinking water. For Khabib.

Once again, here is Khabib negotiating his next contract mid-mauling last night.

25-0

Never thought I would be so inspired by a mixed martial artist from Dagistan. I would put a poster above my bed. I wish everyone else here felt the same way and we could all discuss Khabib Nurmagomedov together.

Khabib would murk Connor. Too bad he'll never get the chance.

Don't think anyone in that division can't beat Khabib. Conor should defend or vacate.

lol

while i have to agree... Some of those fights, man. Sometimes those fights get intense.

I prefer to watch boxing because theres less dry hump and less technicality bs happening.

seems like every time im somewhere theres a tv and i find a ufc fight, the person that owns the tv always comes home at the wrong hour and they change the channel. So ive not seen so many ufc broadcasts
..studied economics for ten minutes can tell you there’s something called Gresham’s Law, which is that 'bad money drives out good money.' And I think it’s even more true with ideology. Squirrelly ideas drive out ideas of depth and substance.
