I think Werdum beat Roidereem once before, Josh Barnett has been talking a lot of trash, I don't give Rogers much of a chance, but I hope he gets in a lucky punch and knocks Barnett out!

 it's funny you call Overeem ''Roidereem''. don't get me wrong, i also find his physique......suspect. especially if you look at him from just 4yrs ago, but he has never tested positive to my knowledge.

 then you have josh barnett there. he was once one of my favorites. not only because of his fighting ablilty, but  also his affinity for anime, manga, comics, and quoting ''fist of the north star'' to his opponents  grin. having been caught on THREE different occasions, and pretty much killing ''affliction'' you'd think he'd be geting more attention for his positive tests.

bigdog,
  I'm sure guro is still hashing out ALL the details(exact location,times,etc.). When he's done finalizing those specifics I'm sure he'll, or pretty kitty will, give us a link for payment.

 looking forward to the 2nd round of Strikeforce's heavyweight Grand Prix this Sat. on showtime. Overeem vs Werdum(good fight!) and barnett vs rogers(a kind of a gimme fight for josh). a pretty decent undercard too.

 i might miss it live though. L.A. film fest starts this weekend and there is a screening of the Evan Tanner documentary ''Once I was a Champion". im probably going to check it out. ill see if i can stay off internet to watch the fight replay later in the evening.

i was REALLY rooting for Cro Cop and Shogun in their respective bouts. Cro Cop looks to be a shadow of the fighter he once was(i'm hesitant to say he looked ''old''. i think he just has not advanced technically or tactically), and Shogun was just overmatched. Jon Jones is G O O D.

  Advice to BJ between rounds was next to useless, except for "When the two of you are on the fence, put his back to the fence" or something like that.

 all bj's corner was telling him was that edagr is pu$$y, c@cksucker,etc. they did nothing but call him names. not one bit of sound cornering. in edgar's corner you could hear them giving him very good, but simple instructions: feints are working, stay unpredictable, etc,etc.

 not so sure bj would've won, but the fight could've much different for bj if his corner would've had a bit more urgency(esp after the 2nd rounnd) and A LOT better technical advice between rounds.

  i was rooting for toney, but knew it was, at best, wishful thinking. i knew couture and his lame forearm tattoo would be too much for james.

''Just putting this out there. Does anyone think that last Fedor fight was a work?''


 do you seem to think it was?

 i really think he just made a mistake. if you watch all his other fight, especially with antonio rodrigo nogueira, he had this uncanny ablity to just ''shuck'' nogueira's legs, pass, then smash him. he's dominated so thoroughly in all his fights i'm sure his learning curve stopped, b/c it didn't need to grow. i'm not saying he'd win a rematch w/ werdum, but i'd bet he wouldn't make that mistake again.

 guys like dana white, and all these others saying he 's not/ was nver that good are just buying into the ufc machine(of which,obviously, i'm a huge fan).

I think I heard Joe Rogan say something about how some commisioner saw an ice break with that elbow strike and decided that if it could shatter a big block of ice like that then it was too much for MMA.

 i've seen poi destroy a coconut on t.v., so i deem it illegal for poi to hit ANYTHING/ONE with his stick(s)!

i'd pick roy nelson to win the whole thing from the beginning. besides nelson i'm only familiar with scott junk, kimbo, and wes sims(besides readiing about a few of the others in various MA mags), but to me roy had the best technical skills and fighting ability compared to all the rest, especially with the fights i've seen him in compared to the rest. when i did see the show that shaub guy seemed impressive, but i figured nelson would at least make it to the finals. i still think nelson wins it all. we'll see what happens tonite.

 although i haven't really been following TUF this season(or the past few seaons) i find it sad that the finale is hyping the kimbo vs houston fight more than the final of nelson vs shaub. i understand it, but still think it minimizes that these two guys actually won three fights each to make it to the finals.

I spent some time last year working for FEMA in Jefferson Parish LA.  I remember seeing a cop that resembled Segal.  I wonder?   cheesy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Jnzrc0Wjog

 really? thats the part of louisiana i lived for most of my life. for those of you who dont know jefferson parish is literally across the river from new orleans. if any of you have watched spike lee's documentary on hurricane katrina theres a part when various people were talking about walking across the mississppi bridge to get the westbank where things were more calm/safe. they were summarily told to turn around or they would be shot. this is the place i grew up.

 anyhow, id seen the commercial for this ''reality t.v.'' series but had no idea it was in LA much less jefferson parish. ill be sure to watch!

''Is Mother's Day really a problem? Though, if it weren't in hot June, Father's Day would be an appropriate choice for a masculine event such as the Gathering.''


 i would say so. i have not made a tribal gathering yet, but if i had to choose between hitting/being hit with a stick or spending time with my own mother i'd certainly choose the latter.

  also father's day is a day i'd also be sure to make a day with my kids(i'll take EVERY excuse to have have them with me) rather than fighting.

 i saw the thread guro C. wish i could find it to post the URL(even if i could i'm not sure how to post the link). the heading was something like "judge who scored fight 30-27 was a dog brother''. didn't really say anything negative about surf, or dog bros. i think the guy who made the thread was saying if this guy, this dog brother, doesn't have a good hold on criteria for judging combat sports how are they(the athletic commission) gonna be able to outline good standardized judging criteria.

 i haven't watched the griffin/ortiz fight(i was in disneyland) but it seems almost a unanimous opinion that tito won the 2nd round. for surf to have the fight 30-27 says he saw something different in the 2nd.

Awesome Jeet Teks from Anderson along with just about every FMA destruction in the book other than split entries!

 i am NO jkd guy, but i think that looked more along the lines of savate- coup de bas(sp?)- in my humble opinion. i say this because i've seen video of the place a. silva use to train in brazil(black house) and they have savateurs there. also i think a jeet tek is more along the lines of raising your foot when someone comes forward rather than actually attacking the knee/lower quad with that kick. he's also a TKD blackbelt so it may just be a low side kick.

 anyways, although i think if he wanted he couldve taken leites out anytime he realy wanted, he did many cool and effective techniques in that fight. there was even a kali tudo-esque elbow and punch to leites's foot when leites was on his back with his feet in the air. then there was that weird cross-step foot stomp he did, not to mention the thigh punching while standing.

 this is a really good idea dan. if anyone's out there in southern CA area even thinking about this i'd get in contact with dan. guro marc's empty hand/mma material would open up a lot of the standard mma ideas out there. there are things guro marc does/teaches that are ''unorthodox'' yet sound and effective. the way lyoto machida has had people looking at his strategies is the way,i feel, guro marc could have people thinking with his kali tudo stuff. not really in the actual techniques, but in the thinking outside the box (although there is a lot of footwork & sweeping that lyoto does that guro marc has been impressing on me for years now).

  i got these myself, also when i took my kids to Toys 'R' Us this past weekend. they're ok. run about 33-34in in length & are pretty thick. dont like the way they travel through the air,  but they are sturdy enough for grappling. i also don't like whatever is covering them. wonder how long they'll last being hit on your fencing mask. i do like them though.as far as affordable training tool they are tops. my son thought they were pretty cool.

38  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Dog Brothers Action Flex Sticks Question? on: November 26, 2008, 07:48:56 PM
 i think the biggest drawback to the actionflex is its limitations for grappling. besides that, i think, it's an invaluable to tool for your FMA/DBMA training. you can spar HARD and not have to worry about an injury(ies) sidelining your training.

 whatever type of ''soft'' training stick you use, eye/face protection is a must. fencing mask, WEKAF helmet, doesn't matter. if you're going to have face/head contact protect your eyes.

41  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Different sticks for training on: November 17, 2008, 02:13:14 PM
 i think once you REALLY fall for FMA you'll find yourself with so many different training sticks it'll almost be ridiculous. from rattan to guava, 28 in. to 31 in., different diameters, different weights, etc., etc. you'll find sticks you don't mind ''ruining'', then you'll find some sticks that ''speaK'' to you for some reason and you'll do nothing but hit the air with it, and you'll find sticks you'll want to use for sparring/fighting. sometimes when you see people with all manners of sticks, this what they are for.

The dance actually has its roots in being a post victory prair / thank you to the king, family, coaches, etc. that the fighter will be able to fight again without being seriously injured in the fight he just fought. 

This however, I find offensive:




 
   why is this offensive?? it's pretty funny to me, especially if you get the joke. it's no more & no less than what liddell does after he wins, or when a fighter jumps up on the cage and back flips, or when barnett slashes his throat, etc., etc.

       i REALLY like griffin, but i don't think he took that belt from jackson. it was close, MAYBE he did out point jackson, but i don't think he took  that belt. one of the judges didn't even have jackson winning the 1st round & i believe 1, if not 2, judges gave griffin a 10-8 for the 2nd round-i just don't see it. he DID have a DOMINANT position in that 2nd round, but he did nothing with it.. there are a lot of fights when a ref has stood fighters up in similar sitiuations. again i didn't see griffin with ANY effort to finish(which is supposed to be huge in judging criteria) even in that 2nd round. jackson did alot of damage to forrest in ea. exchange they had trying desperately to finish him. the only damage i see that griffin did to jackson was the leg kick that hurt rampage in the 2nd(though it did affect him for the rest of the fight), while i saw griffin repeatedly rocked throughout the rounds from rampage. again his sticking and moving MAY have outpionted jackson but with jackson being a damaged fighter i never felt like griffin really took that fight over and dominate rampage or try to stop quinton jackson much less taking the belt from the champion. while rampage was a LIMP fighter i saw more damage he'd do to griffin and more effort to try and fininsh the fight.
