    for those of you who do striking: how often do you wash your wraps and what do you use to wash them?

    So far I've just been airing them out after class but I've also only used them twice.

    Is there anyone currently in training to fill the fight so we don't have a gassed opponent in round 3?

    I very rarely train striking myself, but any fabric being sweated into should be washed after every training session.

    Anyone that tells you otherwise can enjoy their and their teamate's staph infections at their leisure.

    If you're using traditional cloth wraps wash them with the clothes you wore right after the class.

    No reason not to wash them.

    Seriously dude wash them every time, don't stink fist people. Take a sock, put the wraps in the sock and ball it up, throw it in the washer like that. One wrap per sock or they will get tangled.

    Also another tip, a lot of our guys use this to keep gloves a little fresher, get some rice or some Hamster bedding type stuff, put it in a sock and tie it off, put this in your glove when done training to absorb some of the sweat. Make sure to change the stuff out now and then. Works pretty great, we have guys that swear by it and others that sweat by letting gloves air out in the sun. The guys letting gloves air out in the sun have had gloves stolen and we also never see the goddamn sun for half the year or whatever here so there's issues with that. A company sells a fancy version of this called glove dogs but easier to do yourself.

    Also Conor is now the division champ by forfeit. He'll inform everyone of this shortly. He'll also graciously defend his belt against RDA when he's healthy.

    That didn't take long. Cerrone has offered to take the fight, says he's at 174 and isn't sure he can make the weight in time but he's offered to take it.

    I wonder if UFC will give Connor another hasty interim title fight. Would be a tad weird if he fights Cerrone for it, considering how Cowboy just lost an actual title fight. Pettis is too far away from his next fight to step in and there's no way in hell Dana gives Khabib Connor. Too much potential of grapple fucking in there, also the density of smack talk might rip a hole in space time.

    In less fucked news and having been plagued with injuries himself, Davey Grant from our gym is fighting at the UFC in London. Much excite!

    Very cool Campy, will watch for him.

    If I were them I'd be looking at Nate Diaz and Cerrone, you can't expect Conor to suddenly cut additional weight to defend against Frankie Edgar, even if he offered to it's a bad idea. Cerrone just won his last fight and could act as a measuring stick for Conor vs RDA or Nate Diaz, simply because it's Nate Diaz and who wouldn't pay to see that. I'd be more excited for that then the RDA fight.

    I knew I recognized that name, I was cheering for Grant on the ultimate fighter, was cheerin for him against Holdsworth.

    Campy what were the injuries? He's been gone a long time. Also what's the deal with this drill he's doing with the hula hoop in this video, that's so bizarre haha, do you guys use that and can ya explain it? That's a new one, never seen it before.

    Not sure on the injury specifics, but he's had a few of them and all at the worst possible times. He's a proper nice guy from the small amount of interactions I've had with him and his ground game is insane considering he's only a blue belt in gi.

    The hoop thing I have no idea on >_< As with a lot of gyms the pro-team are doing a lot of general agility and flexibility work these days, and this seems to be one of the exercises. Can't find it now, but there's a video of the entire pro-team team going at it with them, it's cracking!:D

  • Chessboxing909Chessboxing909 Registered User regular
    That's the strangest drill. Yeah he seemed like a good dude on the show and a solid fighter glad to hear he's back at it. A lot of times if guys stick around the gym during injuries and help out they improve a lot technically too by breaking things down, could be he comes back stronger.

  • Chessboxing909Chessboxing909 Registered User regular
    This is a more fun matchup I think. RDA is a pretty rough matchup for Conor, I like his chances against Cerrone. Also the build up to the fight with RDA had felt weak, not a ton of talk to go with it so this adds something interesting

    That's the UFC protecting their current top moneymaker. They don't want to chance losing to the much better Cowboy before fighting Anjos. Connor will make short work of Diaz.

    It's at WW? Advantage McGregor there. He's been looking at cutting to 155 and now he has 15 less pounds to worry about. That significantly reduces his prep time and the stress on his body.

    I think I'm more excited for this fight than RDA. Both guys like to taunt their opponents and both can strike. It's going to be a shitshow. Hahaha.

    I couldn't be happier about this. I think Cerrone would have been an easier fight with how he moves Nate had such weird stand up and with all the trash talk and just plain insanity they both have in and out of the ring, it's just.....it's beautiful. take this over the RDA fight any day

    Also had a student at our gyms ankle explode from a leg scissor take down tonight. If you mess with these be very very careful, they're illegal in most competitions for a reason and they can be risky to train at high intensity. Same with heel hooks, if you're going full tilt and applying heel hooks chances are someone's going to get hurt and I seriously doubt that person is a pro athlete. Have to handle the dangerous shit really responsibly. Only work leg scissor takedowns when it's a slower pace with someone smooth and if you're going to work on heel hooks have a catch and releas policy. Someone gets the position and the grip, if they can hold it in place and count to five congrats they win, move on. Practice applying them in drill time and just work positionally after that if you aren't a pro athlete. Sorry for the rant just hate seeing injuries that could have been easily avoided.

    Oh and worth mentioning that's two ankles that have snapped with separate instances and completely different people at two different gyms in the area from leg scissor take downs. Both times they were just going at it full tilt and went for it. And none of these guys ar going to be going to ADCC or any shit like that anytime soon. Such a shame.

    I'd rather have seen Conor fight Cowboy, but I suppose this isn't too bad.

    Though I don't think the prefight trash talk is going to be as good as people are anticipating.

    Nate Diaz doesn't really talk trash so much as he rambles semi coherently about being from the streets and how he doesn't get paid enough or something.

    I'm not too sure, Conor might really set Nate off, it could get pretty entertaining. The fight itself is going to be something else I can't wait.

    Also just saying but....Nick fights at 170, if Conor wins I know who I'd want to see him fight next

    Yea, I'm sure it'll be entertaining, but I don't think it will be a back and forth type thing.

    Conors just going to push all his buttons and piss him off, which will probably be really funny.

    But win or lose, Nate will probably hug him after the fight. This is the big payday hes been dreaming of. He'll probably make more for this fight than he did for his title bout against Benson.

    Because with those two there should be a shit-ton of clowning in the cage and I eat that stuff up.

    Press conference.

    Starts at about 27 minutes in.


    Conor and Nate start getting into it pretty quickly. Just as we expected.

    Hehe, a McGregor press conference is just as entertaining as the fight itself.

    It makes a huge difference when his opponent can speak english though.

    That quip about Shields and Melendez was a pretty good comeback to Nate's steroids comment.

    Mac's timing and precision are just too much to handle.
