How many fight fans here? 

 

I'm mostly going to post cards from Bellator/Rizin/UFC, big Boxing cards, and EBI/Metamori/ADCC grappling championships. 

 

This month we have:

UFC 220 January 20th, 2018!

4919-UFC-220-Event-Image-08d7a7595e2bd4a

 

Miocic V Ngannou is probably going to be the best Heavyweight War in years, and it's backed by an excellent Light-Heavy title bout. Probably the best card since UFC 200. 

 

 

And on that same night, for those who like fights, but don't want to pay the UFC, Bellator 192! 

B192_1920x1080_announce_NEW.jpg?quality=

 

Lima V McDonald has the pedigree to be one of the best fights of 2018. I love Bellators Welterweight class. It's better than the UFC's, imo. 

 

Plus Rampage Jackson vs Chael Sonnen in the first round of the HW tournament! Fuck yes! I love the Gangster, but i'd say that Rampage will pull out the win. The original bad guy is always a fight to watch though! 

 

Feel free to add events.

Jesus christ, is there really no big fight fans here? I know @skillzdadirecta is a boxing fan (and the answer is Iron Mike). 

 

Tonight is the night! 

 

Stipe Miocic V Francis Ngannou!
Daniel Cormier V Volkan Oezdemir! 

 

 

And just announced yesterday, one of the most exciting match-up's in forever, 

 

Khabib VS Ferguson, for the Title. 

Looks like Conor is Stripped!

And then Bellator tonight! Fuck yes! Two great shows in one night!

I actually kinda like Boxing, just not to the extent to pay to see it. I know it really isn't anything like real boxing, but Hajime no Ippo is what made me take interest in real boxing. I don't know what BJJ is, and I don't care for MMA. It just ins't sporty enough.

Not sporty enough? The most brutal sport out there? The very definition of sport?

Im a huge MMA fan. On paper 220 sucks outside of the title fights. 217 was definitely a better card. Gonna be watching tonight, hope the main event delivers.

Yeah, that card was underwhelming. Stipe cemented himself as the greatest UFC heavyweight of all time though (Sorry Cain, be healthy and have another title reign). DC punked Volkan. dont care about the rest of the card. 

 

Bellator was a little less underwhelming. Rory didnt look that great. Bader is the only guy to recently go to Bellator who actually looks like a badass. Coker is a fucking moron imo. In his AMA he said one of his dream fights was Rampage vs. Fedor.... and he fed Rampage to fucking Chael Sonnen. YOU COULD HAVE MADE THE FIGHT

Damn right Connor got the belt strip. That makes him the worst champion of all time. He never defended the Feather weight or the Light Weight belt. All he did was hold of the rest of the weight classes. I'm looking forward to Ferguson and Khabib. I would have loved to have seen Ferguson gas out Connor. 

 

Comier just did what he did best and dismantled Volkan. Good fight. Miocic got the right game plan. He tired out that monster Ngnannou. He did a great job avoiding him and taking him down at the right moments. Not an slobber knocker everyone thought but an intense fight none the less.

Noticed this thread way too late to catch Bellator 192 fight. Wasn't Rampage a coach one season on a UFC tv show years ago? 

 

Ya, he was a coach on Ultimate Fighter.

I put 3000$ on the underdog (Miocic), I knew Ngannou wasn't going to win this. I've been saying for a while now that he's no more than a big uppercut, Stipe is a boxer, he knew how to stay away from Ngannou's wild throws.

 

The Bellator Main Event was awesome. I'm a huge Chael fan.

Coker made the 8 HW fights in a draw to make it fair, so we got Sonnen/Rampage. 

 

To be fair though, NOBODY expected Chael to dominate Rampage.

Nobody? Really? Did you see his last fight with King Mo? Rampage at heavyweight sucks. 

Man, Chael is a goddamned middle-weight. Even at his biggest, he was 40+ pounds lighter than Rampage, who fucking hits like a truck. So no, NOBODY expected Chael to win.

I've practiced Muay Thai Kickboxing for 7 or 8 years and have several fights under my belt but ironically don't really watch UFC or anything, especially regularly. When I do watch, I'm into Glory.

 

I was a really angry and deeply frustrated person which is what got me into it mainly to control my life and keep me out of trouble, but I never watched fights at all prior to starting training it.

Ya, I was a boxer, and practice BJJ. But I love fighting sports. I think they are the best sports in the world.

I actually train Muay Thai at a BJJ academy but never found the time to truly commit to BJJ, so I passed on it (nice pun, right?). I always tell my friends with kids to get them involved in some sort of fighting sport, be it wrestling or whatever, early on, it's pure gold. Teaches you humility, discipline and the value of hard work like nobody's business.

Cormier vs Stipe for the heavyweight title. Thoughts? @apoc81 I want DC to win. He lives under Jones’ shadow and this win could propel him into greatest of all time talk (imo Jones is above him). I already think Jones and DC are p4p #1 and 2 right now. But Stipe is a motherfucker. 

 

The UFC is planning on doing TJ vs DJ and Cyborg vs Nunes on the same card which I think is a horrible idea. I would put them on a different card because these are 6 division champs you have fighting on one card, and we’ll get fucking shit cards on other ppvs following it.

I’m Stipe all the way.

 

Cyborg will decimate Nunes.

Also, this is the worst FOX card I think the UFC has put out on paper. I wish they would have consolidated this card and the brazil card next week. Could add Machida vs. Anders and Valentina vs. whoever the fuck she is fighting to go with Jacare vs. Brunson and Bermudez vs Fili. Still not an amazing card, but I would definitely be excited to watch it.

I agree. But again, free is free, so who am I to complain. I'm literally THAT guy, in that i'll watch any fight. Two bums fighting for change on the street? No problem! Two 8yo kids fighting over some perceived insult? I'll watch! I just love watching people fight. (as long as it is fair)

Agreed, but also want UFC, Bellator, etc. to do well and this card had the lowest overnight totals for a FOX card ever. I’m not a businessman so I’m not gonna say they’re doing things wrong, but I am curious about how they’re doing.

Bellator, to me, is just as exciting as UFC right now. Especially with the HW tourney.

Max Holloway is injured and out of his title fight at 222 vs Edgar. Fucking sucks. Really looking forward to this fight. I think the ppv will be changed to a fight night card since the co-main is Struve vs Arlovski and an interim 145 title would be beyond ridiculous with how active Max is. Hoping Ortega is willing to fight Edgar on short notice but don’t blame him if he turns it down.

I mean, Ortega might, he has enough time for a decent camp. I guess it depends on $$$$.

Maybe. The question is does he wanna give up his spot as number 1 contender behind frankie if he loses to him. With Max being hurt he may take the fight if he doesnt wanna be on the shelf for a long time. UFC is trying to make that and then TJ vs. Cody for UFC 222. Hate this era where UFC is desperate to have a title fight on every ppv. I want to see TJ vs. DJ, which could still happen, but then we'd probably be waiting until 3rd quarter at the earliest.
