    Default MMA

    Tapatalk wouldn't let me search to see if there was already a thread specifically for MMA so if there is feel free to merge.

    Is anyone watching the fight tonight? Bit weird not watching it with mates, but Mrs C is up for it. She only speaks one language.. Violence.

    She’d get on well with the Geordie.

    Must admit I prefer boxing, but according to a couple of colleagues, this bout is apparently quite important so I might tune in and see what’s going off.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    I only pop in to see the "Big fights" so to speak. Just watched a great match up. 2 fighters face to face swinging for gold rather than grappling on the deck.

    Be an interesting fight, Khabib needs a good slap, not a fan of his only likes to fight on the ground, Gaethje is a beast if he can keep it on feet be nice to watch him smash the fuckers face in.

    I'm hoping Khabib gets a slap. I just can't see it. He's going to ground as soon as he can I think.

    What a fight to start with! Won't go into too much detail if people are saving it for tomorrow.

    Usually i just use the Boxing thread for MMA talk but no one ever replies to me

    Gaethje has only been on the floor 17 seconds in total in his career so will be interesting to see his takedown defence against Khabib.

    I am excited for it, I think I lose optimism whenever I log into this forum though

    Often the build up is better than the main event.

    Anyone else thinks that Shakirova looks like Jay from the Inbetweeners?

    Was thinking Bruce Lee myself...

    What a disappointing debut.

    That screamed a squash match to get a title shot.

    Whittaker-Cannonier was pretty good.

    Okay if anyone says Jones is the pfp best i'll slap them. Khabib is the most complete fighter EVER.

    Money megafight against GSP next and he retires IMO. His dad's dream was for him to fight GSP in Russia.

    It smacks of 90s wrestling for me. The hate is fake. Connor McGregor has been talking about a rematch for over a year.

    Both out of retirement for one last fight = millions on PPV.

    Only reason we haven't seen it yet is because they can't pack out Vegas for it.

    Great fight. They've all been good tonight. My highlight was the front kick to the chest that made one of the biggest blokes I've ever seen scream in agony.

    BREAKING NEWS: Per Damon Martin Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier have come to terms with the UFC, and their fight is ON for the main event of UFC 257 on January 23rd 2021. Who do you think leaves 257 with the W?
    Will hopefully be watching from Germany, looking forward to this though.


    I'm putting my name forward to fight the winner. Training camp to be done with the curry club.
