RIP Kpro



Does RIP Kpro mean he's passed?

I didn't know him very well, Kyle I believe he said his name was that ran the "Surprise Van". Really sad to hear.



He didn't die but he dropped off the face of the Earth out of nowhere... Jay will get to it one day I'm sure. I hope he's alright



Oh he's in Prison I'm guessing then.

Lol didn't want to say that outright, but, yeah that's our best bet...

Here for my yearly lurk...

It didn't help that UFC started doing 132,876 events per month. A bunch of us are busy enough not to have time to watch, research, or whatever you need to make your picks. Back then it was ~1.5 event a month or less. There was plenty of time for people to discuss and build anticipation to the fights. It was a more enjoyable experience. Now trying to keep up with everything is just stressful. I'm actually surprised that the page is still up. Kudos to whoever is keeping this thing running.

It's been a progressive decline since '09, when Hippysmacker went on a spree and banned a TON of the site's most active posters. They (including myself) were what made these boards what they were. Funny threads, AV bets, harmless flame wars. I used to love posting here. All good things come to an end, I suppose.

Nice one, Hippy...

Well, a few years ago, after a certain Mod re-wrote my forum post in order to fit their own vernacular, I was done with posting in the non-camp forums.
That was a bit too sketchy for me.

I stopped posting while on my quest to find Kpro. I searched far and wide and although several times I thought I was getting close after finding a disturbing number of dead ladyboy hookers and whippit cartridges, the trail always went cold. I realized I had to stop searching because he clearly didn't want to be found. Maybe someday he'll show back up here...

I moved to Colorado then came back to Florida to go to law school in 2015











In all seriousness, it's sad to see what this place has become. My original account went back to almost the very beginning, but didn't survive the great purge (aka my ass got banned super hard along with a bunch of others at the time) I've got a lot of great memories on this site.

I stopped posting because:

MMA is kind of shit these days, the golden age is long gone. I still follow the sport closely, it's just not as fun to talk about.

A lot of the great personalities that used to make these boards interesting are long gone or don't post.

Busy life/different priorities.

It doesn't help that the site isn't mobile friendly, I just don't have time to sit in front off a computer and can't be assed to try using the site on a mobile browser. An app would have been amazing but that ship sailed long ago, it'll never happen.

Lots of nostalgia here, thanks to everyone that made it fun, everyone that I got in flame wars with, basically thanks to everyone except Jake Walters.
