Definitely a pickem fight. Although I'm going with Rampage. IMO he's just too powerful for Silva. He'll get inside with some nice clams I think.Originally posted by Pk Ripper
Silva vs Rampage is going to be bad ass!!! Pick em fight IMO. I will be rooting for silva tho!
I wouldn't write off Barnet. He has the potential to pummel Cro-cop after a takedown. The only real question mark is what kind of MMA shape is Barnett in? Dunno. I'll be cheering for Cro-cop though. I'm sick of Barnet still being listed at 3rd in MMAWeekly's top 10 and the Barnet fans on that board make me sick. I hope an nice High Kick finishes it.Cro-cop will KO barnet with a high kick. Barnet is a slick fighter, was once on top, but hes a pro-wreslter now.
lol. the cut vitor put on eastman was the worst cut i've ever seen. that made klitchko's cut look like a scrape.Originally posted by DeepSix
Oh, and the Eastman KO was funny. Poor Marvin - his highlight reel (other than KotC stuff) is full of the "Best of Other People's KOs / Cuts / Subs" etc.
i taped this off of HBO a few year back, and it's truly a wicked behind the scenes look into the lives of these MMA guys.Originally posted by redeyes
i recently purchased "The Smashing Maching, The Life and Times of Extreme Fighter Mark Kerr."
let me say that this is the best documentary i've ever saw. 10 time better then Beyond the Mat and i gave that an 11 out of 10.
mark kerr is very articulate. he also seems like one hell on a friendly guy. i hope he gotten his life back in order. i'd like to see him fight again. i was very disappointed in what happened in his last fight when he knocked himself out. i think he can really shake up the UFC heavyweight division if he got his life back on track.
there's some really good fight footage as well. mark kerr laid one serious beating on Paul Varlens back in the day. pete williams gave mark coleman a crocop-style knockout, it was fucking vicious.
K1 Rocks man. It's all standup kickboxing. In a tournament of a qualifying (not eliminations though), the format is 8 fighters then remaining 4 fight, then remaining 2 fight. So to win an event you must win 3 fights in the same night. Three 3 minute rounds. If it goes to a draw by decision, they can force you to fight up to another 2 rounds. Amazing athletes.Originally posted by Subsonic Chronic
Grinch... I've never actually seen a K1 show, although I'm vaguely familiar with the organization.
Do they even air them in North America? How do they compare to UFC & Pride as far as the quality of the fights, production value, stuff like that?
Doh! You're right!Originally posted by silver1
Actually, it was Alistair Overeem that lost to Chuck in the Pride GP.
Well considering Remy's got like a 3 inch and 25 lbs advantage on Chuck, you're probably rightOriginally posted by Dr. Grinch
Doh! You're right!
Sorry, they're both really similar in their fighting styles. I think that fight would've gone a very very different direction if it was Remy.
