    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    Mackenzie Dern was pretty dominant in her MMA debut. Nothing amazing but she was never in trouble, really slick BJJ of course, needs work elsewhere. Gotta say though if she can really improve her MMA skillset and really showcase her elite BJJ then with her model looks she could be a big star.

    Side note though and while she did choose to wear a skimpy bikini at the weigh ins, it seems so awkward the way female fighters weigh in and face off in bikini's. They're serious fighters who for those few minutes just seem to be highly sexualized.

    “I did not inject anything, but I am responsible and accept the consequences for the results. I will make sure I am better educated about the products I use and their implications. Going forward I will ensure no products I use will contain banned substances. I am sincerely apologetic to everyone who supports me, including my fans, sponsors and the UFC. I value your trust and respect and will do everything in my power to keep it.”

    Gilbert gives a vague allusion to having inadvertently taking something, and says he's apologetic without actually saying he apologizes, but he certainly doesn't come clean about what he did.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    Just watching Pancrase 279 right now. First few fights have been great fun, if you got Fight Pass, check it out! Absolutely vicious KO in the 2nd match (Kenta Sakuma vs Hiroyuki Oshiro) and a really awesome twister in the 3rd match between Guy Delumeau and Satoshi Inaba. There's a good amount of name value on the card - Yuki Kondo, Syuri Kondo (kickboxer + pro wrestler also), Rin Nakai, Masakatsu Ueda, Rafael Silva, Yushin Okami, Jonathan Brookins are featuring too.

    Most of the UFC Fight Pass events are worth watching, Pancrase has been good so far. Okami at Welterweight makes much sense.

    Yup and he destroyed his much smaller opponent with ease.

    Was an enjoyable event. 14 or so fights in under 5 hours. Wish UFC would match that pace.

    Damn if he can continue making WW that guy could be a murderer simply due to his smothering top game and sheer size.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    Yeah he looked massive.


    Also there was a legit KO where I guy was basically knocked dead for a few minutes. Was scary stuff. Also a twister from Guy Delumeau which was tapped to very quickly - smart move, arguably the most dangerous MMA submission there is. Sad to see Yuki Kondo get dominated. There were alot of good matches and the action kept flowing. Syuri Kondo had a good fight too - think it's weird how she's marketed as a kickboxer yet her gameplan seems to be taking people down. She's a project for sure and definitely marketable to a certain audience so she might be moving on from Pancrase sooner than later. Would be cool to see her in Rizin.

    Solid stuff.

    Those are welcome changes, but the problem is that individual commissions aren't obliged to implement them. New Jersey openly said there were some changes proposed they wouldn't put in place, regardless of how the vote turned out.

    Dana White: 'It's looking like Jon Jones did not' knowingly take drug flagged by USADA

    - Saw a short video of JBJ a few days ago where he was very positive about potentially returning to the Octagon very soon.

    It was probably that GAT Testosterone shit. It says it's tested but lol sure

    He's still gonna be suspended just a matter of how long. Whatever tainted supp it was wasn't logged with usada which is protocol. So whether that's 6 months like means and Romero or something else we'll see. NAC can still suspend him forever how long they want too

    Strange how all these fighters are victims of tainted supplements and yet nobody else is. You never hear of a 34-year-old housewife from Dogpatch, Kentucky complaining that her Creatine supplement has caused her breasts to shrink.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    I mean let's be real. The supp industry isn't regulated. The ingredients on the bottle aren't necessarily everything that's in it. Hell, the shit I take could probably pop me for all I know. Fighters are tested regularly which is why it's always them you hear about.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    The testing point is fair but I feel like the excuse of tainted supplement is literally the 'dog ate my homework' of MMA. How's it even viable when you pop for two instead of just one banned substance? And the guy's professional and SHOULD be checking shit out or buying trusted shit. It's Jon Jones also.



    Unrelated - there's been rumours of Chael P Sonnen returning recently but not sure if that will happen now as his prematurely born daughter has passed away. Sad news.

    Fighters will keep going for the tainted supplement defence if they know it works and can get their penalty reduced by more than half. The only way to stop it being used is to take away their incentive to use it, and that means making the penalty the same regardless of whether or not you deliberately took the substance you failed for. Much like when the more stringent drug testing was implemented, you'll probably take some big hits early on, but in the long run, it will be for the better. For one thing, more fighters will be more careful about what they take.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    Is there a bigger clown in the game right now than garbrandt? He was just on helwanis crybaby hour and spent the entire segment talking about how Cruz was afraid of him and kept repeating himself. Saying he was literally afraid. The fear radiated off him. Fear in his eyes.

    He sounds like he just walked off a fucking playground.
