    Look whos back?

    Post  KalDog on Thu Mar 21, 2013 11:08 am

    Alright Lads

    Hows it going?

    I havent been on here in a long time, work commitments, plus i have moved to Greater Manchester.

    I hope everyone is well.

    Just a quick one, has anyone heard of Stealth BJJ in Oldham? If so have you heard good reports?

    Also, I have a Barra Gi and its trashed, was looking at buying a new gi which would have to be decent wearing, not too expensive and not Tatami.

    I don't know,it's become really slow on here over the last few months or so.

    Seems the arguing dried up and people lost interest

    Anfield needs to get his arse back into gear and start riling some people up Very Happy

    Chelsea used to be good at getting him going,but he's been gone for ages.

    Welcome back mate. Been keeping up to date with the fights? Hows England treating you?

    Yep place seems to have got quiet! Anfield has chilled out in his old age... He needs a new Bisping to hate I think.

    Crocop? Never heard of him...... Looks like a world class fighter though (sniggers)

    Hey Ben, yeah, keeping up to date with all the action even if I'm starting to get jaded by the Zuffa hype machine

    He should fight Arlovski next.

    Arlovski is though, in my opinion, going to get KOed by Rumble tomorrow. I doubt it'll convince him to retire however, and him v Cro Cop is one of those fights that should have happened 'back in the day', so I would be interested in seeing that fight.

    K-1 world grand prix 2012
    ...although the finals were postponed until now.

    got a dubious hometown decision in the last 8, but clearly won the following 2 fights to take the belt. Not as strong as the Glory 2012 lineup but there were some really good fighters in the bracket, i suppose crocop is lucky Badr Hari got injured during his quarter final.

    Maybe he should retire, to be honest...nobody thought he would win the whole thing and it can only go downhill from here.

    Nah balls to CC retiring, 2 more years I reckon. Love the Idea of a fight with AA still. CC is the one of the best tests out there if AA wants back in the UFC.

    Rumble isnt KOing him Mryzyz!! You say how Kos at Ww or Belfort outgrappled him. If Andrei is in trouble standing he will be able to win this on the ground I think. Wouldnt rule out a Sub win either. I dont think he is going to stand and trade if he isnt having his way.

    AKA Kos is one of, if not the best wrestler in MMA. Belfort was easily outgrappled by Rumble, it was only a series of BS standups followed by Rumble gassing that allowed vitor to get the sub.

    Arlovski won't be able to take him down, and although he is a very good striker offensively, he is still very hittable.

    That's if Rumble can make 265, that is...

    Mryzyz maby selective memory for the Belfort fight, Just remember him taking Rumbles back.

    Anyway AA should beat him standing anyway, they are guys 1 weight class apart, its not much when you think 15lbs but thats the size difference between GSP and Anderson and GSP has been using it as an excuse for a while.

    AA will box the head off him but Im also expecting so see something some wrestling from him time at Greg Jacksons, im expecting this one to have more grappling than people expect.

    The stand ups were ballix in the Belfort fight mate, seriously ballix.

    Never a big fan of Rumble, I get WW's dropping to LW etc but he's a natural LHW who used to drop to WW. Fucking ridiculous

    I know WSOF is only a newish promotion but that vid has a very "cheap" feel to it

    I reckon if Arlovski wins he might get a wee phone call from Dana

    I hope Arlovski gets back in the UFC.

    He's no title contender anymore but he's still UFC HW calibre.
    I think he deserves to be mixing it up with the likes of Mitrione,Schaub,Barry,Rothwell,Herman,Duffee,De Fries,Jordan etc,instead of your mike hayes and devon coles of HW MMA.

    He's at the very least a tough gatekeeper, a test for all the up and comers in what has always been the weakest division in the UFC

    Rumble fighting at 60lbs heavier than he did in the UFC, clearly most of that weight is in his arse, but he looks quite natural at that weight.

    AA got his Jaw broke! Holy shit, great performance from Rumble. Sad to see Arlovski loose, Id still like the fight with Crocop but thats his chances of coming back to the UFC over.

    I think Rumble will be back in UFC. Dana didnt consider AA winning a big deal he sounded like AA should walk through this "Welterweight" so since Rumble pulled off the upset, and a huge one at that in Dana's eyes im hopefull he will be brought back.

    If he still is under contract with WSOF id like to see him mached up with a good BJJ BB, all 3 of his losses are by RNC so lets see if he can defend a great BJJ guys subs before he comes back to the UFC.

    Shogun, Hendo, Mousasi etc.. there are a few fights id love to see him in.
