The Official UFC Thread
« on: February 05, 2008, 11:01:27 AM »
Not sure if theres already a thread on here, but started watching the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) for a year now, what a sport. These guys are in serious condition, "ultimate" athletes to say the least. Seems to be taking over as the no.1 "sport", if you wanna call it that, in America and beyond. Any other followers out there???

Was thinking of starting a thread on this myself Ronan! Big fan of the UFC, throughly enjoyable to watch! Just cant believe that Brock Lesnar got beat in his 1st match by Frank Mir! Was expecting him to kick ass! Ah well there you go! Big fan of Chuck Liddel although he seems to have lost his way abit recently and also like Michael Bisping! They are all top, top athletes!

Ahh good stuff General, was startin to wonder was i the only man who enjoys seein grown men knock the tribe out of each other and shake hands after!!!Yeah i thought Lesnar was gonna rip the head of Mir, did you see the size of the mans hands. It shows that strikin isnt everything, Mir is unreal on the ground, same can be said for Noguiera who took brutal punishment from Silva but still choked him out.
Chuck Liddell fan myself, probably age has caught up on him but still put on a great show against the "axe murderer".
GSP has to be the best pound for pound at the minute, the guy is class.

I'm a huge fan and have done a bit of training at home in armagh/tyrone and over here in New Jersey too.

There is a huge scene at home for those of you interested in the local scene - MMA Ireland and UFR promotion are both sources for information.

UFC is a great promotion and have worked well in EU and US to promote MMA with bringing in some great fighters.

I would agree that GSP is one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world today but Lesnar was never going to beat Mir.  In fact I thought they brought him in to expose that size and power will never beat skill and technique.  Frank Mir took a pounding to the face but kept his calm, applied his BJJ and implemented a great take down and heel hook from his back.

NOG against Sylvia was the same, amazing BJJ - text book sweep and choke. 

I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight

Kimbo is not in the UFC

and the 2 fights he has had - let's just say - his opponents weren't up to much

Isnt there a place in lurgan that trains mma fighters. I think its based down in the clans gym.

Anybody watch the ultimate fighter series, unreal. The best year was the one with Ken Shamrock and Tito Ortiz. They near came to blows at every training session. Them 2 fellas hated each other.
