Over this past 2 years I've gotten really into watching UFC matches. I think its far and away the best sport out there next to Football. Boxing is bogus in comparison. These guys are true gladiators in the octagon. The conditioning and various disciplines that the fighters have to incorporate in their matches are grueling to say the least. I watch the Ultimate Fighter religiously and the pound for pound the greatest fighter out there right now is George St. Pierre. Do you guys watch?

Everyone I know watches it but I haven't been able to get into it. Maybe it's because of time constraints with the kids and all...

I think at this point, it's my second favorite sport behind football

I love the UFC,AS.I really started getting into it when the first season of the Ultimate Fighter aired.Great stuff.I disagee with you about GSP being the best pound for pound fighter,though.Here are some that I would consider to be better:

1.Anderson Silva
2.BJ Penn
3.Chuck Liddell

and some that aren't quite there yet,but are on their way:

1.Diego Sanchez
2.Forrest Griffin
3.Michael Bisping
4.Rashard Evans-watch out for this guy

BTW,did anyone ever watch the first fight between Stephan Bonner and Forrest Griffin a few years back??Best fight I've ever seen.Bar none!!!

BJ is the real deal and proved that fact this past Saturday as he pounded that "squatty-he-man-doll-wanna-be" Shawn Shirk..... (What the hell is a Muscle Shark anyway?)



and some that aren't quite there yet,but are on their way:

1.Diego Sanchez - The Nightmare is awesome, and I love his motor. The guy never stops swingin', but ever since he lost to Kotcheck (sp) he hasn't been the same.


2.Forrest Griffin - Great conditioning, but still not impressed.


3.Michael Bisping - Way too much hype. The "Count" will be down for the count soon enough.


4.Rashard Evans-watch out for this guy - I disagree. I think he's soft, no real empirical facts to back that up. I've just formulated that opinion. Him and his fellow Ultimate Fighter buddy of that same season, Keith "The Dean of Mean" Jardine.

Great post.... and look forward to bantering with you about this subject quite frequently. BTW, who are you taking to win it all on this season of the Ultimate Fighter. Also, if you know of where I can get a free MP3 copy of "The Ultimate - Remix" the beginning theme song.... shoot me a PM is you have a clue to where I can get one. That song rocks and I'd love to get it for the workouts. Loud and Angry.... that's my music choice when lifting.

Hey,I'm glad that I finally found another fan of the UFC.I have yet to meet one in person to "talk shop" with.I agree abot Sanchez not being the same(which is why I put him in the "not quite yet" category.)Forrest is a real good fighter,bro.I wouldn't be surprised in the least to see him upset Rampage.I disagree on Evans,too.We have yet to see the best out of him.Just wait.I do agree about Jardine,however.I tink he gotREAL lucky against the Iceman.I'll try and see if I can find that TUF intro for ya!!!

If you find it, I'll be truly impressed. As for the subject.... my boys and I (my old drinking buddies, before I got married and had a kid) get together every Friday to down some grub for breakfast. This is a subject that is always tabled when we're greasing down. How about my fellow asian but raised in Brazil to be a jujitsu-badazzz..... Lyoto "The Dragon" Machita. What an animal. 13-0 and winning against Capt. Fathead himself, Tito Ortiz.... talk about a short shelf life. Tito is now all hype, now that Jenna's been zapping all the juice out of him. :lol:

Looking forward to our banter. We should co-author a weekly thread regarding our observations of the UFC. :lol:

Maybe I'm a reality TV junkie or something... but I like The Ultimate Fighter, but I can't really get into the big events.

Matches, in my experience, are either really really exciting, or a huge freaking snoozefest. Maybe I haven't seen enough big time matches...

What's up with this Faber vs Pulver match that's coming up. Is that worth watching? Or is it crap cuz its not UFC?

The match with Pulver and Faber should be pretty good,Russ.WEC is kind of like the minor league UFC.They as a whole aren't anywhere near as good as the UFC,but once in a while they can put on a decent fight...............this should be one of them.

Mayhaps I'll check it out. I kind of like the best UFC Knockout shows they show on Spike. I do know I wouldn't mess w/ a large majority of those guys.

I'm looking forward to Rampage and Forrest going at it for the The Ultimate Fighter finale.

And I was upset when Gerald got schooeld by that knee...

That is one thing I like about the MMA stuff. It just takes one lucky shot... So you have to be FLAWLESS to avoid that sorta thing.

I'm too now just getting into MMA. Novice definitely, but I enjoy looking at the various disciplines and fighting styles of each guy and trying to come out with the winner. I haven't been very successful picking them but it sure is fun.

Really looking forward to Fedor and Sylvia's fight coming up. The Prodigy looked really good last Saturday. I think he could give GSP a run for his money if they were at the same weight tomorrow.

I've NEVER liked Sylvia.I put him right up there with Ortiz on my most hated list.

Faber and Pulver will be an awesome fight. I give props to Pulver for jumping up to BJ Penn's weight class for so long, because I think physically Pulver is at his more natural fighting weight now. That being said, I think Uriah will kick the snot out of him.

I don't watch too much of it personally, but a bouncer at my local watering hole is a fighter in it, and has fought in Vegas.... Is this the pre-fight entertainment?......... Gotta love the kid with the camera phone snapping a pic!..... :lol:

Not sure when it will happen.I'll say 6 months to a year.Penn will defeat GSP.He is one bad little mofo.
