    Yeah I can't recall seeing a female that looks similar to that. Ever.


    Pretty sure the use of PED's in fightsports is more wide-spread in Brazil. One of those don't ask-don't tell typa things.


    Rousey has claimed Cyborg is on Roids many times.

    You obviously know a lot more about both of these sports than me. I sometimes watch if it happens to be on TV, but I honestly don't ever remember seeing a match play out anything like you described above.

    This isn't the finest example of it, since this is a Pride fight in Japan. But here's the tactic being used(sloppily). I'm sure there's a term for it. Look at about 5:35.Usually when a fighter uses that defense they also put their hands over their ears and elbows out, to protect from a blow to the face

    (the whole fight was a pathetic effort from Vitor. check the action, or lack there-of after the opening bell..)

    It doesn't take place over a whole match in the UFC, It happens though. When a fighter employs the tactic, the standing fighter can just back off and the ref will then stop the action and stand the fighter laying on the ground up. Doesn't happen often, usually its a fighter thats totally out-classed standing up that's brusied/battered/swollen trying to avoid punishment.. Seems like a good way to take a break and catch your breath, I guess, much less dangerous if no kicks or elbows are allowed to rain down on ya.

    The scales have been tipped, and the money will soon be made. Now, Deontay Wilder and Johann Duhaupas are ready to fight.

    Duhaupas is Wilder's second voluntary challenger for the WBC heavyweight championship belt, and the two square off on Saturday at Birmingham's Legacy Arena. Doors open at 4 p.m., with the first fight on the card set for 4:30 p.m.

    The NBC Premier Boxing Championships broadcast begins at 7:30 p.m. CT, and continues on NBC Sports Network at 10 p.m. Wilder should be in the ring around 8:30 p.m.

    The Tuscaloosa native Wilder (34-0, 33 KO) will make $1.4 million for the fight, the same amount as when he fought Eric Molina on June 13 in Birmingham, a ninth-round knockout. Duhaupas (32-2, 20 KO) will earn $140,000.

    Wilder, 6-foot-7, weighed in at 228.6 pounds and the 6-foot-5 Duhaupas, a Frenchman, was 236 pounds.

    RELATED: Deontay Wilder's toughest challenge may come from critics who question validity of opponents

    "I'm excited to be back home fighting once more," said Wilder, who won the WBC title in January in Las Vegas. "I'm excited for all the fans who are going to be tuning in on NBC. It's going to be a packed-out crowd with the majority of my people there. One of the hardest places to fight is at home since you've got all your family, your friends and people surrounding you and you're almost obligated to put on a great show.

    "This is one of the biggest fights of my career and I'm ready. This is the moment I've been waiting for, to defend my title."

    That was weird. It seems like the ref should just stand them back up (which he did a few times). The guy on the ground was absorbing ridiculous punishment but he kept laying back down. I think his legs must have been killing him. It was probably time for him to just tap out even without being submitted because laying down like that was certainly not going to win the fight.

    I don't know what kind of tactic in boxing could possibly be as lame or sheepish as that. But yeah, terrible performance by Vitor. In an outside the of the ring combat situation that technique has little to no applicable use - UNLESS your receiving a beatdown..

    Its not far off from the fetal position + trying to create space, right?

    Stomps and baseball slides to the head and live American TV audiences are probably not things that mix well.. I'm not advocating that. There was no rule to prevent that stuff in Pride though(which the UFC bought in '07).

    Still - rules and situations like that dilute the whole 'MMA is more useful' argument to me..(not that i really care, I just see it for what it is - a sport with rules)

    I ask those people how many streetfights have you been in recently?.. ? the answer should be none. especially if their hands are basically deadly weapons. (different for chicks obviously, of if you live in a war torn area, or the hood).


    I like boxing better, but a good fight is a good fight. I'm definitely not any sort of elitist. Vitor also had 1 professional boxing fight, in brazil. He probably wouldn't have been a great boxer though..

    Fighting a professional or amateur boxer on the street is not a much worse proposition than than fighting a professional or amateur MMA fighter on the street, obviously.

    Povetkin(6'2") would whoop Wilder(6'7") no wonder he's hiding. Defense is just too ****ty. He's accurate with those powershots though.


    Duhaupas has a hell of a chin though. I think this ends in the 8th rd. He's taking a ton of damage.

    11th round stoppage, he didn't knock him off his feet once though. Tough French fighter. Good fight. It slowed a bit in the 8th but Wilder had it in control by then. his defense looked suspect.. Deals a ton of damage though, even on deflected blows.

    He's loaded still, but I think he said he wants to make a billion.. Somehow Russia's involved with that plan.

    Broner vs. Khabib and Matthysse vs. Postol are both tomorrow. Broner's a clown, I hope he gets mopped.
