Thumbs up MMA Containment Thread v.2

MODERATOR EDIT:

Previous thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1754503

With all the fans, fanbois and haters going back and forth, and 3 or 4 random UFC 100 threads, I thought this might be a good Idea.

Everything from news and rumors, who will be fighting on the UFC #XXX card and of course, old sweaty dudes just lying on top of each other to get their jollies.

Come here and get your fill.


I will start...

Aoki vs. Fedor? More likely than you think...

Pictures here - http://www.mmatko.com/fedor-emeliane...m-1-challenge/

http://www.m-1global.com/en/news/det...-down-in-japan

Quote:
While it was nothing more than a sparring exhibition in which no score was kept, the pairing of WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko vs. WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoki was able to invoke an outpouring of applause and cheering from a normally reserved Japanese crowd.

Advertised locally as a \"special super exhibition,\" the encounter held between M-1 Challenge fights on Wednesday night in Tokyo featuring the two undisputed world champions resembled a training session that you might see inside of a fight gym. The only difference was that nearly 1,000 spectators were on hand at Differ Ariake to watch the two square off while donning Gis.

Fedor utilized his strength advantage to send Aoki soaring with several Sambo throws. At one point, Aoki played to the crowd and removed his Gi in jest and attempted a flying armbar on Fedor. With both fighters pressing each other well less than 100 percent, the two smiled for much of the session and embraced after the final bell had sounded.

The entire Fedor vs. Aoki session will premiere in its entirety on Monday, May 4 at both www.M-1Global.com and www.Mixfight.ru on a video-on-demand basis.

The video of the session will air free of charge on a video-on-demand basis starting on Monday, May 4 at www.M-1Global.com and www.Mixfight.ru. Despite erroneous speculation, the fight video will be available free of charge.

Just watched the Weidman fight.
Props to Weidman. Spidey sense reaction time on that elbow. Ref should have stopped the fight about three shots earlier than he did.

I can't say too much yet, but there is a solid chance he will be fighting someone that I train with regularly.

Make sure he puts the hurtin on him... Can't let WWE people think they can have a seamless transition into MMA.

Side note, Calgary event this weekend is such a meh card I struggle to even want to watch the PPV. But, it is often these cards that end up being some of the most entertaining. So I guess we will see how it goes.

I feel the same way. Hector Lombard vs. Tim Boetsch? I thought he came to the UFC to step up in competition?

I know fighter scheduling has a bit to do with it (Belcher just fought Palhares, Belfort got injured, etc.), but even if Lombard beats Boetsch in the first round, I still wouldn't be like, "Title shot!" It's like all the people who suddenly think Nate Marquardt can beat Silva, somehow forgetting they fought before and that fight wasn't even close.

People on TV say I should be excited about Baroa vs. Faber. Meh.

I'll read about the fights on Sunday. If I missed out, I missed out.

That and the fact that uhhh Nate is now a WELTERWEIGHT and not a middleweight.

Boetsch knocked out Oakami (even if he was losing) who was just ranked in the top 5, before his lose to Silva.

Your argument is pretty weak.

For what it's worth, I think Belcher is probably the most underrated contender at this point. Lombard is a beast but I think if he fought someone who had decent footwork that allowed them to keep distance, he wouldn't hulk smash them. I do believe if Hector touches anyone's chin, they're going down.

Weidman probably does represent the biggest challenge to Silva with his wrestling credentials. I pointed it out the other week but the middleweight division is light on wrestlers in general - but also good MMA wrestlers. LW, WW and LHW seems to have gotten them all.

It's my opinion that if Sonnen stuck to the game plan, he had that fight won through a slow and grinding decision.

Yeah he was looking into it with Strike force back then.

Guess it's finally happening. October 6.

Looks like he is listed at 6'6" and 290.

He might be 290 if he put some weight back on. Last pics I saw of him he was looking pretty small. Granted at 6'6 he's still going to be "heavy". I mean it makes sense if he has to make weight at 265.

I just watched the Munoz vs. Weidman fight last night, that was a great elbow.

Do you guys think he can really take on Silva?

Thanks. Just watched the fight That counter right elbow was amazing. Weidman looked like he did his homework and practiced this. Still amazing he was able to pull it off so well in actual combat.

The finish made me cringe a little on the late stoppage. I can't really hate on the judge though, he was trying to give Munoz a fighting chance.

No. I think he is too young without enough experience and is not big enough.

someone like him would be afraid of silva from the get go (ie gsp vs Hughes the first time) and that would effect his performance. Also Chael is a very big strong wrestler at 185, I don't see Weidman being able to toss silva around like he did... And he would def not want to just stand and strike with him.

He has the potential for sure, but I really don't think he is ready. Munoz to silva is a very big jump IMO

The problem is that middleweight is light on contenders and he's an up and coming undefeated prospect. The only other guy I'd put in line with Silva is the winner of Boetsch/Lombard, and Alan Belcher. The winner of Bisping vs Stann is a solid prospect as well, but they are both injured. It'll be months before that fight takes place.

Considering those options I am not adverse to Weidman getting the shot, but I won't bitch if he has to fight one more guy to get a crack at Silva. I'd really love to see him face Belfort. I think he'd tear Belfort's ass.
