  1. Bonjasky and Yvel in Croatia
    These were taken by a member of nokaut.com. Glad to see the men who are there to help Mirko beat kongo are much better then kongo himself.
  2. Beautiful Question:what would your walk in song be
    So you've made it to the UFC. Your dream has come true. Rachelle Leah is smiling, and wet, what can I say she love's me, and your walking into the octagon, they're blasting music, and the crowd is in...

  3. Jardine is Overrated!
    Keith The Dean of Mean Jardine upset Forrest Griffin whose claim to fame was having a war with Stephan. None of these fighters mentioned are top ten material. Forrest took Tito the distance but Tito...
  4. Cecil Peoples
    Dose anyone agree that Cecil should give it up. He's not a good MMA ref.
  5. What's the best ring entrance in MMA ever?
    I say anything by Genki Sudo.
  6. Paulo Fihlo's Performance
    I disagree with alot of the posts about Fihlo having a poor performance against Joe Doerkson. Fihlo showed that he had a more complete game (albeit a lttle unorthodox) than anyone thought he had....
  7. Matt Hughes vs. Karo Parysian
    This fight was supposed to happen, but Karo had an injury. I'm glad, cause I think that would have been too early for him. He's still all of 25 and has gotten better. Even in his losses, rare as they...
  8. Is 185 a mess or what?
    Here's a list of my top 6 185 pounders: Anderson SIlva (UFC) Dan Henderson (UFC (and Pride?) also fights at 205) Matt Lindland (Bodog? also fights at 205 and HW) Rich Franklin (UFC) Paulo Filho (WEC)...
  9. Can any one put up some WEC videos?
    the only WEC fights i have seen have been on vs i would like to see more
  10. Whos better? Lindland or Hendo?....
    Who is the better Team Quest Middleweight/sometimes Light Heavyweight? I just wanted you guys thoughts because to me this decides the Rampage/Hendo match at UFC 75... I picked Rampage because he beat...
  11. Larsons weakness
    So we saw at WEC the other night Larson very aggresive but got caught in an armbar. What I'm think is if Sherk would have the same weakness since most of his plan, is to get in the guard or full...
  12. DUANE LUDWIG VS CHAD REINER
    http://ufcjunkie.com/2007/08/06/ufc-vets-duane-ludwig-chad-reinder-set-for-sept-15-ring-of-fire-show/ I am taking Duane by TKO
  13. Condit vs. Nick Diaz?
    I've watched a few of Condit's fights and he reminds me a lot of Nick Diaz. So I ask who wins between Diaz and Condit. I think this would be a great technical match with a lot of trash talking...
  14. If these guys win their next fight they are top 10
    Cheick Congo Lyoto Machida Michael Bisbing Terry Martin Keith Jardine Forrest Griffin Thiago Tavares Meaning Weight class
  15. Paulo Filho anyone??
    I was just wondering as i was watching Filho tko Joe over the weekend,and i thought to myself i wonder where people think Filho ranks among middleweights in the ufc and how he would do.Personally i...

  21. Kyle Maynard (disabled fighter)
    This guy is trying to fight in MMA, but he has no arms or legs. Here's a video of him grappling at NAGA. I personally wouldn't let him fight in MMA. Kyle Maynard
  22. Joachim "HellBoy" Hansen
    anybdy heard new about him lately???? Know for what org he will be fighting for?? i would love to see him in the ufc's lightweight division, i think he would be a very solid addition, and i could see...
  23. MMA TV guide
    Found this link for an MMA TV guide on the Dog... Don't know how accurate it is, but it'll help in at least giving an idea of what's going on in the continually growing world of MMA on TV... LINK...
  24. Who should Burkman fight at UFC 77?
    Who do you think Josh Burkman should fight at UFC 77, for me I think that he should fight Tamdan Mccory, Marcus Davis or Forrest Petz

  27. how do fight camps work?
    what sort of arrangements do most fighters have with their fight teams and gyms they work out at? its hard to imagine that on what a lot of these guys, even guys who are relatively famous, make that...
  28. Which of thse guys would have won UFC 1?
    Rorion Gracie (the matchmaker for UFC 1) chose Royce for a few reasons, but if he had decided to put one of these Gracie-affiliated fighters in his place do you think the result would be the same? *...
  29. Filho at 205?
    Nope I'm not just throwing it out there. His management at Black House told Stephen Quadros that Paulo is tired of cutting all that weight and that he might go up to 205. Apparently he walks around...
  30. Cub Swanson Is A Beast!
    Did anyone watch his fight last night? I had no clue who this guy was and wondered why he's fighting Pulver next. He fought Micah Miller(Cole Miller's brother) and was nonstop punching and being...
  31. Can we please stop saying...
    Can we all please stop saying that fighters always have a chance? It's a given!!! In pretty much every thread you will find some captain obvious that always has to be the one to say "oh yeah Joe...
  32. Aina VS Diaz
    Man they are feeding this Kid to the wolves, you know how pissed off Diaz is going to be after getting his win reversed and not fighting for 6 months
  33. Mirko in his new cage
    From what I've heard 50% of Mirko's standup has changed, and is now more suited to the cage. Bonjasky and Yvel have helped a ton in transforming it, as now there are 3 of the absolute best strikers...
  34. Absorbing Punches
    I have recently done some non-scientific research from watching a ton of boxing and listening to Teddy Atlas, and apparently, having larger neck muscles help absorb punches better then a skinnier...
  35. What's more important: The nationality of the fighter or the fighter himself?
    I honestly feel that nationality has nothing to do with it. Sure, there's a sense of pride that comes with having a guy from your country win. But this isn't the Olympics and martial arts transcends...
  36. A. Silva- Pride Fighter??? UFC Fighter??? Other???
    i have read in many other topics that a silva is a pride fighter. But should he really be considered a Pride Fighter. I think he shouldn't be considered any org. What is he??? and when do the pride...
  37. Penn vs Franca
    I would much rather see a fight between Hermes Franca and Penn than Sean Sherk what about you guys?
  38. If Fedor signs
    If Fedor and Zuffa do end up reaching an agreement on thursday...when do you think he would make his debut...or better yet who will his debut be against?? I personally think that Zuffa will not give...
  39. Sherdog´s MMA Rankings!!
    They started their rankings today and I got some mixed feelings about it. What do you think about it?
  40. genki sudo
    wtf happened to that kid? he was/is one of my favorite fighters, why did he retire? i heard he got injured and he got fed up but what really happened?
  41. Tito is on Chelsea Lately ...
    as we speak.
  42. Shogun vs Henderson?
    ok lets be hypothetical for a second. +lets say henderson BEATS rampage AND +lets say shogun BEATS griffin it would be shogun vs henderson. who would you pick to win and why? i'm picking my man...
  43. Chuck and Forest
    So I think the card wouldve been better if Forest went against Chuck Liddel and Shotgun took Jardine. I mean, when new fighters come to the UFC, they usually fight a low card and Jardine is way to me...
  44. Why isn't Bonjasky in the fighter index?
    While trying to fill out my favorite list I was able to put in Hoost(retired K-1 star) but not Remy Bonjasky(active K-1 star) is there any reason for this? Just wondering because I would like to use...
  45. Who wins between WildFire and Hurricane? (MTL)
    match-ups It's a shame we can't pick or wager on these fights. There are some really good prospects fighting. IMO it's all gonna depend on the Rodrigo - Sapo fight.
  46. Evan Tanner Title Defense
    Does anyone know how many title defenses he had before succumbing to rich franklin for a second time?
  47. Athens, GA
    So I recently moved to Athens,GA to start grad school at UGA and I was wondering if any one around here knows a place in town (Bar, pub etc.) where I can see the upcoming PPV events .... I' really...
  48. Pancrase
    I was wondering if Pancrase still has the same rules as what i saw in Shamrock and Bas' fights. Like no striking with a closed fist. I tried looking it up but couldnt find it, so is it still like...
  49. if jens pulver makes it past sub swanson in the wec, urijah faber seems to be in view
    this may be urijah's toughest opponent the only person who has beaten him is tyson griffin, but if jens pulver beats cub and goes on to fight urijah, we may see a ufc face as champ in the wec
  50. who do u like better
    Chuck Liddell or Randy Couture Tank Abbott or Vitor Belfort Ken Shamrock or Tito Ortiz Vernon White or Kenny Florian Din Thomas or Spencer Fisher Travis Lutter or Ryan Jensen Rich Franklin or...
