    Mixed martial art fighting!

    I have been watching this 'sport' on UBC the last few months. Talk about a free-for-all. This fighting includes all nationalities from the Brits to the Yanks. From the young cocks to the old roosters.

    What do you think?

    I'm a big Andre Arlovskie fan...



    Problem with UFC is that they don't happen that often, once every couple of months, all repeats on tv these days.

    I used to watch this show on satellite which was a mix of muay and normal boxing - can't remember what it was called - that was quite interesting in that it was all-action. I can not stand that nonsense where two meatheads with tatoos cuddle each other for two hours in a cage - bore off! Personally I'm a keen follower of the martial art of pleasedonthitme.

    The Pride Fighting from japan is better, not just red necks and trailer trash in the crowd shouting USA

    better standard and more entertaining.

    UFC is ok but can be a bit gay when there is just 2 sweaty men hugging each other against a fence at the white swallow convention center in vegas.

    i think k its K1 youre talking about Danbo
    we won it at wemberlee
    we on it in gay paree...

    What about this 'Bushido' that's on UBC sometimes? That looks pretty brutal.

    It seems similiar to K1 fighting, which is where they have martial artists of different styles fighting each other, from muay thai to chavflicks.

    The toughest ufc fighter I saw on tape was Royce Gracie a Brazilian jujitsu artist. He was champion three times. I googled him and found this guy Kazushi Sakuraba a Japanese wrestler who beat not only Royce but his brothers too. On top of that back in the 50s Sakuraba's father, Mashiko, beat Royce's father, Helio. Great story.

    From wiki:
    Sakuraba versus the Gracies

    Sakuraba earned the nickname "The Gracie Hunter" for his decisive PRIDE victories over brothers Royler and Royce Gracie, and brothers Renzo and Ryan Gracie. These victories carried with them large symbolic importance: the hammerlock that Sakuraba used to overcome Royler and Renzo was the same technique utilized by the most famous of Japan's judoka, Masahiko Kimura in 1951 to defeat the Gracies' father, Hélio Gracie. Furthermore, Royler's loss to Sakuraba in 1999 constituted the first defeat of a Gracie at Japanese hands in nearly five decades since the bout between Kimura and Helio. Sakuraba's fight against Royce, the second in the encounter with the Gracies, was also of historical significance, being Royce's first defeat in mixed martial arts after an undefeated run in the UFC as well as the longest match in modern MMA history at 90 minutes.

    Quite right, I still love UFC as once in a while some guy'll take a royal pummelling, but it isn't as good as theoldays(TM) when a half-starved pikey with one boxing glove would take on some monster sumo failure. That was entertainment!

    I believe a guy like Speakman would whoop Gracie's arse.

    Maybe it is just me and my fascist disrespect for the masses, but don't you get the feeling that if you (or say, bin Ladin) blew up one of these sports stadiums during a UFC or WWF match, the world would be better off - free up some real estate, reduce social benefit spending, etc.

    I mean, from a purely macro-economical perspective, if would probably make good sense.......

    And then Bush could blame it on the Iranians, and justify some more military action - and keep unemployment down at the same time.....
    Any error in tact, fact or spelling is purely due to transmissional errors...

    It is interesting to see how most matches end up on the floor, where most popular martial arts forms would be useless.....

    The grappling (or whatever they call it) techniques are not very elegant, but seems rather effective - if you are limited to one opponent at a time, that is.....

    The grappling is tedious but I find it worthwhile for the pure physics of an eventual arm bar.

    It's like fishing, only more so.

    What, you have taken back-ups of your martial art training? Damn, why didn't I think of that? Then I could just reboot myself from a potbellied, middle-aged fart back to the handsome athletic young man I used to be 20 years ago......

    Jeff Speakman kenpo karate expert and movie actor. Does he know any submission holds? Once Gracie cuts off the ring and gets ahold of him I think Jeff would have to tap out before his elbow, shoulder or knee got dislocated or he could get chocked out as well. Once Gracie is in close the punches or elbow blows to the head wouldn't have enough stroke to them.

    love these martial arts style discussions, ave you all the bother its the fighter not the style.
    when UFC started it was a platform for the gracies to market their brand of Brazilian jiu jitsu.
    nobody knew about it and everyone got panned.
    the modern fighter has to know a bit of everything
    ground and stand up.

    people say traditional arts are useless, in the cage yes but every fighter started with one of them

    who's the best

    Chuck norris of course

    if you like this machisimo try www.sherdog.com

    Attaboy,

    I stand corrected. Kenpo isn't designed to defeat the BJJ style at all.

    kenpo is genuinely fun and beautiful to do
    the average joe doesent know shit about BJJ or whatever so is still a worthwhile investment in time and effort

    the sort of accomplished BJJ fighter wouldnt be the sort of chap you would want to disagree the price of spuds with
