    I figured there are enough MMA fans here to start a UFC/MMA thread and just keep it ongoing instead of creating different thread for each event. Tonight is UFC 90....Im taking Silva in the 2nd round, there are alot of good undercard fights also.

    Re: UFC/MMA Events

    yes...I was shocked at the way he was acting...first he came in dancing which is unlike him , from the beginning me and my buddies were saying what the hell is Silva doing..he usually takes about 30 - 60 secs to feel his opponent out and then unloads but he was dancing around avoiding striking but clearly could have ended the fight at any moment if he wanted to. the Sherk fight was very good, the Alves fight was good...I think youtube must have these already..tell me what you guys think. while we are talking MMA..I heard they are going to have a show called Fighting Fedor..some sort of reality show with Fedor...ill try to get more and post it..

    ‘Fighting Fedor:’ MMA reality series to determine next opponent for Emelianenko (Seriously)

    By: Jesse Holland
    [​IMG]

    Fedor Emelianenko, once considered the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter, has agreed to face the winner of a 16-man tournament on a new reality show by M-1 Global titled, “Fighting Fedor.”
    Here’s the video trailer:

    In short, be prepared for fighting’s most embarrassing television moment since “Iron” Mike Tyson made a guest appearance on, “Who’s the Boss.”
    It seems M-1 Global is indeed hell-bent on delivering MMA fans the matches we’ve all been screaming for. After all, why bother with the likes of Josh Barnett or Antonio Silva when you can steamroll an up-and-coming fighter in front of your hometown crowd?
    Even more amusing is the hackneyed narrator trying to sell us the premise as “Groundbreaking” and “The likes of which have never been seen before on American television“.
    Sixteen fighters compete against each other in a sequestered environment with the winner getting a title shot — yeah … that’s as fresh as they come.
    I’ve always been a fan of Fedor Emelianenko and there is no questioning his accomplishments in this sport. But this new endeavor carries the foul stench of network entertainment.
    Fedor will continue to grin and sleep soundly in his bed of cash. He may or may not face the best competition, but it’s his legacy to defend.
    And he may choose to defend that legacy with little or no effort.
    His fans, unfortunately, no longer have that same luxury.

    Damn, I should have known better than to open this thread. Last night's fight is still on my DVR. I went to bed after the Gray Maynard fight. Too bad that Pat lost.

    [​IMG] UFC needs to challenge Silva

    By Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports Oct 26, 4:23 am EDT



    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    ROSEMONT, Ill. – Anderson Silva’s corner kept screaming at him to start acting like, well, Anderson Silva. UFC president Dana White said he thought he was in an “alternate universe” and wanted someone to slap him out of this bad dream.
    At the end of the first round of their UFC 90 main event, Patrick Cote, after watching Silva bizarrely bow to him, shrugged in bafflement. That wasn’t even as unusual as the moment in the second round when Silva offered a hand to help Cote up off his back, rather than stomp him as you’d expect.
    The Silva-Cote middleweight title fight ended in the third round when Cote blew out his knee without any contact. That was as strange, although not as much as the fight lasting to the third round in the first place.

    [​IMG]
    “I was sitting there saying, ‘What the [expletive] is going on?’ ” White said.
    Everyone showed up in suburban Chicago looking for Silva to deliver one of his Mike Tyson-esque destructions of Cote, the heavy underdog. This is what Silva fights are about, some violent combination of punches, knees and kicks that render opponents senseless.
    “He’s a killer,” White said.
    Not on Saturday. While Cote deserves credit for fearlessly standing in front of him, this was about Silva, arguably the best fighter in the world, deciding not to do much fighting.
    He didn’t throw a purposeful punch for most of the first round. Rather than attack with his patented combinations, he danced, he pranced, he swayed and he even prayed. He did little hand tricks, Muhammad Ali feet shuffles and ran around in circles.
    “If you don’t know him and you showed up for the first time, you’d [think] that guy was goofing around, he was acting arrogant and cocky and trying to play with [Cote] like he was a little kid,” White said. “That is not this guy’s style, that’s not his personality, that’s not who he is.”
    No it isn’t. Silva, afterward, apologized for his performance yet also defended it, claiming he wasn’t out there playing and he was just throwing Cote off his game. He sounded as confused as everyone else.
    The theories of what happened are endless. Perhaps he didn’t respect Cote and was unprepared. Perhaps he felt the need to deliver an entertaining show to the fans. Perhaps he was bored. Perhaps all the talk about switching to boxing or retiring outright, got to him. Perhaps he felt pressure to finish with a spectacular knockout.
    Whatever it was, the solution is simple.
    White needs to feed Silva opponents that’ll either motivate him to bring his “A” game or make him pay for any mental lapses.
    Give him Chuck Liddell on Super Bowl weekend at UFC 94. If he survives that, give him Georges St. Pierre back at middleweight to headline the historic UFC 100 early next summer. Then have him go back to light heavyweight for a shot at whoever has the title after that.
    Give him anything but what he’s gotten his last two fights, opponents that weren’t capable of hurting him and thus incapable of bringing out his best.
    “I don’t know, I’ve got to think about it,” White said of Silva’s next opponent.
    He would only smile at the suggestion of Liddell, the former light heavyweight champion, which means he’s certainly considering what would be a major pay-per-view draw. He did say he thought Silva wanted to return to 205 pounds for his next fight (Saturday’s was at 185).
    Mostly White was searching for answers just like everyone else. Over the past two years Silva (23-4) has been his most reliable meal ticket. You put the Brazilian in the octagon and someone gets finished; often quickly and in spectacular fashion.
    Until Saturday, no one in the UFC had lasted past the second round with the guy. He wasn’t just considered by many the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, but the most exciting.
    He was the perfect headliner for the UFC’s first card in the Second City. Cote is a tough guy who wasn’t backing down, but few outside his diehard fans thought Silva would need more than a few minutes to send everyone home buzzing about the UFC.
    Instead fans were booing at the end, as much at Silva as the disappointment of Cote’s knee giving out.
    “I was sitting there going, ‘No, this isn’t happening,’ ” White said.
    In the end, if this is what constitutes an off night and an emotional letdown for Silva, then it isn’t too bad. Cote got a couple shots in, but not nearly enough for the fight to be in doubt. It’s why White didn’t look too interested in an immediate rematch even if Cote was healthy.
    So give Silva a challenge he can’t afford to sleepwalk through. End the Knockouts Across America parade, give up on the middleweight division he has annihilated and find him some mega-fights that will bring out his best.
    Chuck Liddell is waiting at 205. GSP (no matter what happens against B.J. Penn) can move up and challenge at 185. Acquiring a second title has always been Silva’s dream and should motivate if he’s still rolling after that.
    “I’ll tell you this,” White said. “I wouldn’t want to be the next dude that has to fight him because he’s not happy.”
    Then raise the bar and bring it on.

    Plymouth is becoming the South Shore’s fighting hub

    PLYMOUTH —

    The lights were shining brightly on a six-sided cage in America’s Hometown, and it was time for yet another fight. Eric Foley, a burly heavyweight from Marshfield who is a K-9 officer for the sheriff’s department, wrestled his opponent to the mat soon after the bell sounded. He went on to win, remaining undefeated in mixed martial arts.
    The following Saturday night, across town in Memorial Hall, he did it all over again.
    Plymouth has become the hub for fights on the South Shore, and for fighters like Foley, who trains at South Shore Sports Fighting in Rockland, it means more friends and family making the quick drive to cheer him on.
    “This has exploded in Plymouth; it’s almost sold out every time,” said Foley, 39, who emerged from his recent fight with a smattering of small red marks on his face. “My face told a different story, but I felt really good my last fight, and I’m looking forward to the next one.”
    Foley’s next fight will be at the town-owned Memorial Hall, which opened its doors to the fledgling sport in mid-2006 and has held at least 13 events since. The town’s recreation department has taken in an average of $50,000 per year in rental fees and concessions from mixed martial arts (MMA) fights.
    Officials at Memorial Hall, which has long been a haven for boxing, were pleased to find the relatively-new sport was a bigger draw with a more diverse crowd of male and female fans. Compared with boxing crowds, MMA crowds are less prone to mixing it up with each other between rounds, said Barry DeBlasio, Plymouth’s recreation director.
    “We could actually be running MMA every week,” DeBlasio said. “We really had to limit the amount of dates that we have them. They always say that Plymouth is one of their better venues.”
    The town has become such a hotspot that MMA promoters have begun expanding into new venues.
    The JunglePlex, an indoor soccer facility and gymoff Route 3, hosted its first card Oct. 11, promoted by pro fighter Frederic Belleton of Easton. Weigh-ins were held at a nearby Uno’s restaurant, and about 800 spectators turned out to see Foley’s fight as well as nine other scraps.
    “We’re very happy, and we can’t wait to have the second one,” Belleton said.
    Belleton knows there’s room to grow in Plymouth. Crowds at Memorial Hall regularly hit the 1,500-seat capacity for shows put on by groups including Full Force and Reality Fighting.
    DeBlasio and several fighters say Memorial Hall, because of its location and seating setup, is developing a reputation as one of the best venues in Massachusetts for MMA fights.
    Attendance at the fights was one reason that Plymouth decided in June to hire an event management company to run Memorial Hall and enhance its events schedule.
    Before Plymouth opened up, South Shore fighters had to trek to the North Shore or Mansfield, Westport or Taunton to compete.
    This made it tougher for local fighters, who typically get a cut of the tickets they sell to get friends and family to come out.
    That’s not a problem anymore for Eric Foley. In Plymouth, he can count on an audience peppered with co-workers from the local sheriff’s department, many of them throatily cheering him on as he brings the pain.
    “That’s most of my audience, is all the guys from the sheriff’s department,” Foley said. “I’m pretty lucky to have all those guys there.”

    I knew this was going to be a bad move...now since he beat Couture..whos at the end of his career and twice his age hes going to get way to much credit..Lets not get ridiculous......Couture is 65 yrs old.....lets see how he fairs against Fedor......

    Re: UFC 91-Lesnar is the real deal

    I don't know man, this guy is a freak of nature. He walks around at about 280 and when he cuts weight to meet the 265 he quickly gains it back. That is a huge advantage and he is agile (unlike the other giant Sylvia). If ever there was a reason for a super heavyweight division it would be this guy. I think he could hold on to this title for awhile even despite his lack of MMA experience.

    Re: UFC 91-Lesnar is the real deal

    Im not going to rain on his parade he won and beat a formidable opponent..I cant argue his wrestling talent,size and speed..hes lacking in submissions..a few years of training he could be the best , as for now though Fedor is the best Heavyweight ever..hes beat guys alot bigger than him....I just hate WWE morons..now watch Battista, Triple H and others will migrate over...Im more interested in the Lighter weight fights...Kenflo vs Penn...GSP vs Silva or Silva vs Griffin....

    Re: UFC 91-Lesnar is the real deal


    I have to agree! What I would love to see is Penn go against a WWE wrestler of the same size. Couture was good, but is up in age was is a very small heavyweight.
