Well since every other sport has its own thread I thought I would start one for my favorite sport. Mixed Martial Arts! So post your discussion of your favorite fighters and up coming fights. Anything from UFC, DREAM, PRIDE, IFL, or WEC. All forms a MMA are welcomed.

Just a few mods...

Honestly Im not really too familiar with Urijah Faber since I havent watched much of the WEC up until recently when I realized I had the VS channel... hahaha

But Ive seen Jens fight before and its never boring to say the least.

Faber is actually an awesome fighter but he hasnt lost in a long time and needs a good ass whopping to bring back down from his high horse and I think Jens is one of the few lightweights that can do that.

Just a few mods...

Well there's three of us ...anymore?

I wonder when Crocop will fight again, I guess he didnt notify the UFC wether he was going to retire or not before the deadline so he isnt even listed as a UFC fighter right now. Supposedly this was just a mistake and he plans to come back.

I remember watching that one show kind of like a reality tv show for MMA fighters! hahaha Talk about CRAZY! Having a bunch of fighters living in one house, add alcohol....talk about YIKES! It's like you don't even have to go to an actual fight to see it! It's more raw when things happen in real life! hahaha

But yeah, I watch it here and there! I have older bros and my cousin is dating a lightweight. So, I'm pretty much around that stuff! I don't watch it as much, but I did catch the one this past weekend! haha I watched a bit of it and man....it's just crazy how brutal it is! All I say is....don't be on the bottom! Being pinned down is sometimes pretty much OVER for you! hahaha I know I'd want to be on top if I'm beating a b*tch up! hahaha For the record, I never been in a fight! hehe But that would be the ideal position!

And is it true that most MMA fighters are wrestlers that never made it?! haha I could've sworn I heard that, but I think it's more than that! I mean I have seen a lot of kickboxing fights in the past to know that it's ten times more fun to actually be able to fight with different styles as opposed to ONE! I mean, boxing and wrestling is fun to watch and all, but it's more exciting when you can see so many different martial arts at work!
