Hello everyone

I used to come here and post a little bit and at one point I made a lot of predictions here. I kind of lost my interest in the sport for a while after the UFC added the smaller weight classes and seemed to kind of "thin the talent out" a bit, but recently I've been getting back into it.

I also own all of my own MMA gear (two sets of training gloves and shin pads, target mitts, thai pads, a punching/kickboxing bag), and I like to spar regularly. The only problem with that is I live in northern Maine and there are no training facilities in the area, so I'm basically sparring with random people in my back yard. I have some videos on Facebook if anyone is interested, but they're nothing special.

I probably won't be overly active around the forums but I figured if I tried to start making predictions again and posting here a little bit maybe it'll give me back some of the passion I used to have for the sport.

Anyways, I hope this introduction was sufficient. See you all around the forums.

Thanks, bro

I just noticed the "Joined" date under my name says 9/07. I knew I registered here a long time ago but I didn't realize it was quite that long ago.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Thanks everybody.

This place seems significantly more active than it was when I was here before.

Hey webbie, good to have you here. Maine sounds awesome and is somewhere I'm looking into travelling around in next trip to the states. I'm a lobster/crayfish fiend

Unfortunately I live way up in the northern part of Maine where you can't find any lobster, lol. I'm basically out in the woods in the middle of nowhere. It's really not a good place to live. There's no good work or real money to be made, no places to train MMA like I mentioned before, and basically just nothing to do other than fish and go hunting, which I don't happen to be a big fan of either.

It's definitely a quiet and calm place, though. It's just not for me, lol.

Thanks again for the welcomes everyone.
