So what is this MMA Thing? Don’t you mean UFC?
Spoiler:


Well whatever, I just want to see like a ninja guy fight a sumo wrestler. Oh oh! How about like a Kung Fu guy take on some old dude who does Tai Chi? (Fighting Styles)
Spoiler:

Wait what? Brazilian Jew Whatsu? More Ties? I don’t care about your fashion statements, I just want to see some sweet moves! You know like Hurricane kicks and Spinning Piledrivers! (MMA Moves)
Spoiler:

Ok, now you’re talking my language! One of those moves had naked RIGHT IN THE TITLE. That’s awesome! These fights must be no holds barred right? You know like that awesome Hulk Hogan Movie… No Holds Barred (MMA Rules)
Spoiler:

Oh ok, well I guess biting would be kind of gross. Well, where can I actually see some Wrestler dude Nakedly Choke some Kicking guy? (Upcoming Events)
Spoiler:

Sweet! Now how about you tell me who the big dogs are, you know the ones that have those sweet flashy belts? It seems like I should know those guys. (Current Champions)
Spoiler:

Ok so now I know the basics I guess, you know with the Muay Jitsu and the Superman Kicks. Where can I get some additional info? (Outside Resources)
Spoiler:

Ok so reading is fun… I guess… But where can I get some competition? Is there some type of, I dunno, Penny Arcade Fight Club, I could be apart of and compete against other forum members? (PAFC)
Spoiler:

Awesome! I can’t wait to be able to choose between Punchy McPuncherson and Kicks McGee! Just one more thing (I promise!) Is there anything else I should know? I don’t want to be out of line when I post in this thread. (Thread Rules)

    As for doug_grammar's MMA news,

    CroCop has a distinct advantage against Mir. His takedown defense is superb, and he's a better striker. Whether or not he can finish Mir though will be up to him.

    Good for Mariusz for realizing how important cardio is. His striking has been ridiculously inefficient so hopefully he improves that as well. With his strength his bread and butter should be a wrestling style ground and pound game, which would work well against Butterbean.

    Tito Ortiz is just trying to hold on to relevancy. Too little too late.

    What John Cena said makes sense. He's never been into violent combat sports, so he wouldn't like MMA and he wouldn't want his kids to watch MMA. Nothing contradictory there.

    I'm not sure that CroCop is still the better striker between him and Mir. Mir has outboxed some solid fighters lately, right? On the other hand, we haven't seen him try out a kickboxer recently. Interestingly, I don't think most people would let their kids watch WWE/whatever, but would be inclined to allow some MMA viewing by the midgets. I do at least.

    It's really hard to predict what kind of mind set CC could show up in, if he's as bad as some of his recent fights I think Mir will out strike him. It's a really interesting fight and I'm glad that Big Nog getting injured meant we didn't have to see that fight again.

    UFC 119 looks pretty good, four of the five main card fights should be great and in the other we get to laugh at Sean Sherk's t-rex boxing.

    I'm most excited for WEC 51 right now, this card is great:
    FW Championship bout: Jose Aldo vs Manny Gamburyan
    Jamie Varner vs Donald Cerrone
    Miguel Torres vs Charlie Valencia
    Korean Zombie vs George Roop
    Leonard Garcia vs Mark Hominick

    If he comes in with the mindset of his last fight, he'll submit Mir.

    I do not see Mir trying to out-strike CroCop. The man has been KO'd on a frequent basis, and I believe he will tread very carefully when he steps into CroCop's territory.

    However, I am not implying that Mir will get knocked out by CroCop standing, but implying that he will avoid that scenario, and go back to his roots.

    Taking Mirko down will be a fight within itself, but if Mir gets Cro-Cop on the ground, we'll see how well Dean Lister has improved Mirko's ground game.

    Overall, I'll say CroCop has the distinct advantage if he's coming in with good stamina, which he should be seeing how he's brought in his A-team.

    (Good OP, Jared, but just take a little more time dressing it up a little.)

    119's a pretty meh card but it's got some fights that are important for you guys. Little Nog vs. Bader and Dunham Vs. Sherk should both be good fights and they could catapult promising young guys into the next tier of fighters and potential matchups.

    120 isn't that great either but it's free so hey, what do you want?

    Kongo also took CroCop down.

    Mir/CroCop scares me. I don't trust either guy. CroCop is essentially o-fer against anyone of note in the last four years (and I'm including the Barry fight in there, considering CroCop was getting tooled before Barry broke half his own body). But Mir's never liked getting hit, and CroCop has enough left to put some hits on him. You couldn't pay me to bet on that fight.

    I really doubt we'll see Bones/Bader if Bader wins. I'm betting they'll handle it like they did with JDS and Cain.

    If Little Nog wins, though, I think he's almost certainly Bones' next fight.

    Remember now, Lil Nog took out light heavy weight contender Luiz Cane back when he was still a prospect. He could do the same thing to Bones/Bader.

    It's been a long time since Rogerio has been knocked out, and another day that goes by is another day spent training with Mark Munoz.

    You could just tell Silva would be sending Griffin to hell with that fight. Griffin admitted defeat before the fight was even really planned.

    Also, it's time for Jones to start climbing the ladder, and him fighting Griffin would be a waste of time and effort. It's time he fought contenders.
