man i wish Nate diaz would come back already. And why the hell Chael still brings up Nick like he's returning i dont get. Nick hasn't fought in forever. And hasn't won in like a decade. He would get starched by some no-name kid if he stepped back in the octagon.

Also i know Dillashaw aint dropping down again. But i would luv Dillashaw vs. Figuieredo

Fig/Moreno would give him a hard time. Petr Yan would be a great watch, Dill would get destroyed.
interested in the michel pereira fight his last one was pretty funny and he was pretty dominant same with the fight before that one

He's great unless fighting Woodley. He's always in the conversation, just hasn't pushed through.

Nate Diaz is a punchingbag with great stamina. After the shit that happened with Cub Swanson not being able to train at a bjj gym because he was fighting a flat earther Gracie destined for "greatness" lol. The toxicity in BJJ is crazy. Nate is a Gracie acolyte & delusional. He's funny though.

Edit: Not staying up till late AM but will watch in the morning. Pettis's better half better be there.

So do we reckon Pettis was pushed out? Dude made $350,000 the other night. Seems like damn good money to try his luck at another organisation

He's banking on his popularity & social clout it seems to get better paydays.

Never understood why PVZ wanted to continue fighting. Stick with Instagram I would've said, but I guess exposure will drive a lot more bare knuckle & fight fans. She knows what she's doing...

I have absolutely no knowledge about any MMA fights or fighters, just wanted to come and say that 2020 was the year I started martial arts - kickboxing specifically. Probably one of the best things I did in a number of years. Feeling incredible.

P.S. Low and middle kick can GTFO.
Welcome to the thread.

Peruse the thread at your leisure, ask and we'll try & answer. Not as knowledgeable as Sherdog, their enthusiasts & practitioners would benefit you more in the practical sense.

Watching mma we can help with, the members here have watched mma from Pride days to now. Some have experienced it, you'll speak to em hopefully. Kickboxing is fun to watch, Adesanya the current Champ is a kickboxer.

Kicks will be messy for you in MMA. They open you up to takedowns if you're kicking but are advantageous in a long fight. Thais can help you up your game. In a kickboxing match I've seen fighters with 250+ wins & 50+ losses at ONE Championship near Champ level. The fights & events are free on YouTube.

My guess is the UFC wasn't willing to renew his contract at that price. Probably had to take a substantial paycut if he was going to stay. I would expect Jacare to be on his way out too.

Event from a couple days ago. if you're geoblocked, some have used a vpn or TOR to be able watch.

Next is a Beijing event they're "premiering", its archived...

Happy New year all, hopefully we're all on the upturn.

Edit : correcting 2nd event desc.

hes calling out masvidal lol
Masvidal wants money fights with such a goat record... He's an entertaining sucker puncher & fake as fuck. Is he Cuban? Mexican? American? Christian?

He's a pussyo that got called out for fight week in Vegas, sucker punched the challenger, passed up a chance to fight him. Prefers fighting punching bags & bmf is a joke he's not in on.

UFC PPVs getting a $5 price hike and the annual subscription getting a $10 price hike. Really weird seeing a second price hike since 2019 when Dana is like 2020 is breaking all kinds of business records.
where did you see that?

I just subscribe to a Japanese TV streaming service. $20 a month and shows all the PPVs live (not pay per view over there). Commentary is in Japanese though.

You explained my feelings for Masvidal perfectly. Add in when he started being a wanna be mcgregor with his outfits and all that. I can't stand the guy. Fake is perfect description. What the hell is he? 😂

Apparently we’re getting chandler vs Dan hooker at 257
After seeing Tony's last performance Chandler would have been better off taking that fight in December. Dan Hooker might be coming off a loss but that fight was a brawl.

Jan is gonna put him out. Izzy could barely handle the power of Gastelum, he's gonna get rocked in the lhw div.

All the luck though, mad respect for moving up after pretty much clearing the division. Lhw division kinda feels like a shadow of it's former self. There's just not that many exciting fighters in it like there used to be.

Let’s hope Jan doesn’t freak out like Costa did though

Good point, I would have sworn on my house that Costa was really gonna take it to Izzy and was shocked to see Izzy dismantle him like that. Izzy surprises me, he almost get's knocked out by Gastelum in FOTY, but then easily/boringly sweeps through Romero and Costa. I hate MMA math sometimes.
