    His conditioning wasn't great by any means but nobody, both you and I dont know if he was injured or not. My initial guess was that he had to have broken some ribs in either the clinch throw or the elbows to the body. If you have every partiicapted in any sort of combat sport you know the effect that getting your bell rung can have on you. It plays a HUGE psycholoigcal effect and wears you down fast. Especially if you dont get a chance to recover. Because you're no longer thinking with a clear mind, and expend way to much energy. Shogun was blasted with a flying knee 5 seconds in On top of that. If you have ever done BJJ before, you would know how exhausting it is when you have someone on top of you for a few minutes. Let alone a guy like jones, whose covering your mouth so you can't breath, grabbing his throat, and elbowing his body. I dont understand why people think these guys are suppose to be superhuman? These things make a person fatigue, and fatigue fast. People say that shoguns conditioning looked off the chart amazing in his machida fight. Well you can't compare the two fights. Theirs a differance between standing in the pocket and exchanging a kick every 20 seconds and getting your ass kicked. I highly doubt he feels like he embaressed himself let alone his family. The guys considered the best 205 pounder of all time by many. Losing is a part of the game.

    I'm goin to the fight night in Seattle. I was really happy when they name zombie the replacment. But these fights are almost never as good as the firsts. But still, it should be a complete war!

    Josh Barnett Frank Mir Tim Sylvia BJ Penn Ricco Rodriguez Noguera when he won the title Matt Serra usually looks out of shape Chuch Liddell always had a beer belly so yeah..... try again

    maybe you should read further, because it might further educate you about the sport you clearly no little to nothing about. Like I said. A persons appearnace has to do with nothing Fedor, who most consider the greatest MMA fighter of All time. Phil Baroni (below), A guy who can't last 3 minutes in a fight without winding himself.

    well i guess its not fair to say he can't take a punch. But its more so that he freaks out when he does. Which is really messed up considering he's a pro fighter. The way he reacted when both carwin and cain began to attack him was rather pathetic. Running away both times and curling into a ball. The guys got balls, but clearly he doesn't spar very hard if he's still panicing when punches are being thrown at him. As for the jones comment. The guys amazing. He's a freak athlete, with a freak body. But theirs a differance between that, and skill. He uses his attributes well, which lead to alot of his success. But besides his wrestling, which is amazing. His striking is not great, its good but not great. Or neither is his BJJ. But he's so young and it doesn't even have to be at this stage of his career. He's able to utilize his reach so well, that no one can really figure out a way to attack him. But guys like Aldo and GSP are the guys that you can say are super skilled and well rounded.

    This post if full of so much fail. You know he was coming off knee surgery right? When you have almost a year off since your last fight, you're gonne be rusty. The fact that he was flabby means little to nothing in sport. Their are alot of guys that are aesthetically fit and look like pro body builders, but gas out in a minute. Fedor is a short fat russin rude that had some of the best cardio in his heavyweight weight class. You have to give Jones credit, he rocked shogun within a few seconds, and rocked him hard more then once in the first round. Which is why he looked very sloppy early on. On top of that, those elbows to the body are gonna wear you down fast. The fact that shogun appeared to have no gameplan for that fight was rather disgraceful but his conditioning wasn't poor because he didn't train properly.

    LOL maybe the heart of a wwe champion. The guy can't take a punch. He's a freakin joke. As for Jones being he best all around fighter, thats not even remotley true at all.
  9. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Well GSP is probably gonna move up and Anderon will probably retire soon. But i know what you mean, no one in the company can really beat these guys. Styles make fights though, and no one is unbeatable. Guys like Diaz and Overeem might come along when their contracts are done and fight the UFC champs.

    GSP was destroying guys and was dominant, but no Jones dominant. But GSP wasn't facing great guys like jones was at that age. Honestly the only guy in my memory that i can recall that was that dominant at that age was Shogun Rus believe it or not. If notom, one could argue he was even more dominate. Thats the crazy thing about this sport right now. Its in it early stages right now, so every few years, the new guys that come in are so much more skilled and well rounded. For guys that are older, they need to be constantly evolving and trying to keep up with the sport. Oh yeah, I guess Aldo who is only 24 is just as dominant. But unfortunently lower weight guys dont get the recognition they deserve. But Aldo has pretty much raped everyone he was ever fought in brutal fashion.

    the size and reach played a HUGE factor in that fight. But wow was Jones impressive. I can't see this guy staying at 205 more then a year and a half. His frame is gonna fill up fast. He has to move up to Heavyweight, because the weight cut to light heavyweight will destroy his body. I am a huge Shogun fan but man, he looked super sloppy. Or maybe it was a combination of jones looking great and shogun looking bad. He looked gassed after the first and has never beaten in that fashion or remotley close to that fashion before. It looked like he got hurt in the first round. I would not be suprised to here if he broke some ribs from the first take down or one of the crazy elbows bones threw. Did not expect him to see him lay a beating on someone like Shogun. Props to Jones. Props to Shogun for being very gracious in defeat and showing great heart.

    fedor more then likely will retire before fighting in the ufc. also i loved the wec merger. the guys at 145 and 135 are so exciting. The downside was that now we have to pay to see guys like aldo, faber, and cruz fight. Before it was free. Having more cards is nice but i really hope they have less PPV's. I dont wanna be going to bars every second saturday just to watch a UFC PPV. They really need to get a cable tv deal done. The thing I dont like about Zuffa buying Strikeforce is that i dont really thinks its good for fans of the sport to have one big company . UFC has become a monopoly now. Sure they'll have a few good fighters come to the UFC after a few years or whenever these guys honour their contracts for strikeforce but fighters need to have a 2nd option. JMMA is on a major decline. Dream will be liklely be bankrupt, so strikeforce and bellator were the only two big organizations. Even for fans, having more competition is a great thing. The strikeforce heavyweight tourny being an example of that. Strikeforce has been putting on excellent free cards for a while now. It sucks knowing that they wont be around for very long now.

    i like gsp, he's a great guy and i know where he's coming from. The guys got sooooooo much to lose with this one fight and i can understand him not taking it. But thats what seperates hims in my opinion from guys like Fedor and A.Silva. These guys go in their and fight anybody. Their not worried about their legacy or about the opinions of others. Guys like Fedor and Anderson have alway went on and said they could care less about rankings and never thought of themselves as the best. GSP has been talking about his legacy and wanting to go down as the best. This mentality has lead to his success because he has become so methodical, but also very conservative fighting style. As for the weight thing GSP said he walks around at like 195. I think he said that like last summer. He should be around 200lb. Thats my guess at least. I remember him saying that once he moves up, he wants to make it a perminent move. He doesn't wanna switch between two weight classes because he feels its unhealthy for his body. I really do think he should have a tune up fight though. Moving up a weight class when you're not even one of the biggest in your own and fighting the arguable best P4P fighter. Yikes!
