    Re: The Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    Actually pati yung belt nung karate uniform ni Gracie, ilang beses kong nakita na ginamit niya to choke his opponent aside from his arms. Kaya nung next time na, pinagbawal na yung mga naka-karate costume and the likes. Lahat hubad na ang upper body.

    Wang-Bu, agree ako dyan kay Samoan ng K1, malakas talaga sumuntok. Teka, K1 ba yung naka boxing gloves yung mga players?

    ^^^ Mismo Sir Bibby.

    Meron pa bang mga Pinoy na lumalaban ng Yaw-Yan o Kali?

    Itong mga ito ay mga katutubong sistema ng panlaban. Sinasabing mas matindi pa ang Yaw-Yan kaysa sa Muay Thai ng mga kapatid nating Thai. Ang Kali naman ang ginamit na basehan sa fighting form na ginamit ni Matt Damon sa mga fight scenes sa Bourne Identity at Bourne Supremacy.

I watched one game of his puro kick lang sa paa ng kalaban na kala ko ay napakahihina pero bumigay yung paa nung kalaban in the later round. In short, mas madugo lang labanan nung compared today.
    That was him alright. In that match, he fought and won against a guy who outweighed him by close to 200 pounds. In the early days of the UFC, open-weight ang labanan. Walang weight divisions. It wasn't unusual to see slim karatistas and taekwandistas fighting (and subsequently losing) to heavy-set wrestlers and grapplers.

    Hmmm . . . siguro bumaba enrollment sa taekwondo and karate when the Gracies showed that sparring is very different from real fighting. Saw a fight where a taekwondo jin connected with a running spinning back kick na hindi man lang ininda ng kalaban nya. What surprises me is why ex-professional boxers never gained ground in the Octagon, considering some states classify their fists as deadly weapons (or is this legal fiction?)

    There were three rules then: No Biting, No Eye-gouging/Poking, and another which i can't remember. Sipaan sa semen-factory wasn't illegal but out of "manly honour," hardly anyone must have done it. The weight classes came in order for the UFC to expand to other states where the sport was still considered illegal.

    the problem with pro boxers fighting in the octagon is their inflexibility to shift from orthodox to southpaw stances, and vice versa. another problem is that they don't know how to counterattack a kick or a hold. my opinion is they have to fight more unconventionally to win. tank abbott was so raw and unpolished as a boxer, and that may have contributed to his success ;D

    Parang practice ba ng bakbakang kanto pre? Hehe. Meron na kayang sumali or currently playing in UFC or any MMA tournament for that matter na ex-convict? Yung tipong may background sa mga napapanood natin sa TV or cinemas na gulpihan sa selda.

    The Shamrock brothers were juvenile delinquents who had a lot of run-ins with the police. Nothing major though, just petty crimes. Before the UFC came into existence, Ken was involved in a lot of backroom/alley fights. Tipong Van Damme movie na may pustahan.

    Si (Marky) Mark Wahlberg tigasin. Gang member nung bata. May criminal record din (assualt, attempted murder). Maybe we would have seen him in the Octagon kung hindi nya na-ayos buhay nya through showbiz. Pati kapatid nya, si Donnie of New Kids On The Block, basagulero din nung bata. Well, they've got Irish blood . . .

    i would have loved to see a three-way anything goes street fight among the NBA's most pathological head cases past and present: marvin "bad news" barnes, xavier mcdaniel, and ron artest. police will be on hand not to break up the brawl but to pick up the bodies...

    Re: The Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    anderson silva is the hottest MMA fighter these days. brock lesnar was a big disappointment in his debut against a ranked MMA contender in the person of frank mir. kumbaga, marami pang kakainin yan si brock bago umakyat uli sa octagon.

    on the other hand, the brazilian spider was absolutely brilliant when he defeated dan henderson via submission with a rear naked choke in the 2nd round. so my dream matchup is anderson silva vs quinton jackson. yan ang abangan natin...
