    Most prospects never pan out. They win some, lose some then get cut or retire after a long career in the middle of the pack.

    Yeah, im replacing him.

    Dana offered me 5K. Apparently that's a huge salary in the UFC.

    True of most sports. Look at the first round of any draft in football, hockey, baseball, basketball... It ends up looking like a crapshoot.

    Christ. Gastelum can't even make weight and he's a coach? Hope his team like those burritos. As for Escudero... just.... what? Could be a decent season but the coaches don't sell it for me (Gastelum a little) but given the fact he shows no motivation to make weight... which he clearly can do... is slightly worrying for me if I was a member of his team.

    Renzo Gracie is a scumbag for the most part. Dont think hes even considered a true Gracie either by his family.

    Laila Ali says that she can beat Rousey because Rousey's too small.

    In a straight up fight or MMA fight? Laila Ali dominated Boxing many moons ago, but the advantage does go to her till the shot Ronda takes from her, and drops her on the ground and breaks her arm pretty easy.

    She didn't specify, just said that no woman could beat her, including Ronda.

    Yeah if I remember she retired from Boxing, because she dominated it so easily. No one could touch her the ring, but Ronda could break her in half, she doesn't that eye of the tiger in her like Ronda now does.

    Laila would get murdered in anything other than a boxing match.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    So, someone is trying to tell me right now that Women's Bantamweight is more cleaned out than Women's Featherweight.


    WBW might be considered cleaned out. But it is nowhere near Featherweight in terms of no competitiveness.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    BW has Ronda ontop of the mountain and she smashes everyone. I'm a JJ fan now but her last fight before becoming Champ was a razor thin decision. No one matches up well with Ronda, a grappler with a good gameplan could beat Joanna.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    I agree but BW isn't cleaned out - not by a long shot. Ronda has beaten the top contenders... but those top contenders haven't faced alot of the division ie Zingano/Tate have never faced Eye, Holm, Bethe if I am right. Featherweight is effectively Cyborgweight. She is no.1 in the division, Coenen is 2.. and Coenen has been blasted plenty of times.

    You say that but again, Joanna is developing as well as Ronda - I have no doubt Joanna could blast most of this division into orbit. There's nobody who can take her stand up... JoJo is far too defensive and timid a striker to be able to fight with JJ unless she can keep her at length. A wrestler with a solid gameplan might work but eh, honestly it doesn't bode well for you if Carla Esparza has been ragdolling you beforehand. JJ has effectively wiped out the entire cast of TUF and she made it look so easy.... if JJ can win her next two fights and show improvement in doing so... she's going to be the strawweight Ronda.

    Re: MMA Random Discussion Thread

    There's still plenty of worthwhile contenders for Joanna though. Rousey's at a point where she's fighting unimpressive fighters like Bethe in Brazil. Or having serious talk about fighting Carano, Cyborg, etc. who aren't even in UFC or Holm who was incredibly underwhelming.

    Just a little "reminder", UFC Fight Night: Mendes vs Lamas is, for the europeans atleast, in the afternoon tomorrow. The prelims kick off between 4-5 pm i guess. Card looks atleast interesting and should offer some fun fights hopefully.
