Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

That was a sick night of fights. That Barboza knee. Shogun looked 25. I was pretty impressed tonight.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Easily better than the last PPV. Also why is Bethe Correia fighting on main cards? Shes terrible and all her fights are terrible.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

I only got to see the main event, but Gastellum despite beating a clearly washed up Vitor, is legit.

That is what I am still wondering...was it a great win for Gastellum or just Victor wayyyyyyyyyyy past his prime.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

The London card this afternoon was pretty awesome.

Manuwa walk off KO (1:58 in)


Marc Diakiese sick KO


Gunnar Nelson also dropped Jouban with a straight right and subbed him, and Brad Pickett was KO'd via headkick.

I assume they feed Shogun to Manuwa.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Manuwa asked for the title shot after DC and Rumble fight. I don't think Bones will be ready, so I think Manuwa deserves it. 17-2 with 16 KOs? He's 37 already too.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Jones can fight in July. If Cormier wins, I think Bones gets the next fight. If Rumble wins it'll probably be a rubber match or Jones. Plus Manuwa is only riding a 2 fight win streak. I don't think a title shot is in his immediate future.

Bellator is putting on another PPV with Wanderlei Silva vs Chael Sonnen as the main event. Looks like it'll be at MSG.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

This piece of shit should have been convicted. Not sure how it was deadlocked on attempted murder.


War Machine Convicted On 29 Counts in GF Beating Hung Jury on Attempted Murder
Quote:
Former MMA fighter War Machine dodged conviction for the attempted murder of his ex-gf, Christy Mack -- but was nailed on 29 other charges, including sexual assault and battery.

The jury came back deadlocked on 2 counts of attempted murder in the 2014 brutal beating of Mack and a male friend who was in her apartment the day of the attack. War Machine was found guilty though of coercion, dissuading a witness, battery by strangulation, kidnapping ... and multiple counts of sexual assault.

The fighter and his attorneys had turned down a plea deal that could have put him away for 18 to 40 years. His sentencing is scheduled for June.

No surprise, Fedor vs. Mitrione is happening there as well.

This is going to wind up being a card that could have taken place in PRIDE 15 years ago.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

BJ Penn is gonna fight Dennis Siver at FW. I guess he didn't get the memo that the sport retired him 7 years ago.
