i don’t get it because i MISSED THE FUCKING FIGHTS THANKS A LOT FUCK
It looked to me like the same fat Werdum showed up that fought JDS. Don’t waste your time penix it was painful to watch.
Would the fight have been better or worse if the ref allowed “Floppy” to roll all over the cage chasing Overeem like the giant fur ball from “Critters”?
Pretty close, except it’s not using its flippers to try to goad you into coming to get it.
i would be very interested in seeing how fights like that would pan out if the butt scooter was allowed to flop around if they wanted to. that’s how alot of these bjj guy are taught to fight an opponent with superior stand up, its called your guard for a reason, so using it to not get punched in the face by a superhero like overeem was smart (but ugly). i still think werdum would’ve took the fight had it gone to a 4th round. i think overeem has shane carwin syndrome and wouldn’t have lasted another round. those big muscles are great for the first round or two though, if he can actually get his hands on the guy.
Knees and kicks to grounded opponents would’ve been Uh-MAY-ZING!!!
These is why pride rules were awesome. You want to butt scoot like a bitch, that’s fine I’ll just soccer kick you in your fucking face… problem solved.
Exactly. The current rule set of MMA makes no sense and creates a lot of awkward situations.
^^Yes, TONS of awkward situations. Like the time you got naked in front of a girl. Or the time you had to discuss your anal warts w/the doctor. Or the time your button exploded off your pants from the strain.
The rules are fine. THAT’S WHY FLOPPY LOST. Also, his zero-power punching didn’t cause any damage so who cares if he landed more (except Garcia & Elkins).
The rules won’t be fine until you can use leg strikes while grappling, damnit!
Why doesn’t anyone lunch in to fake leg kicks to their grounded opponent & then smash a big leg kick into their ribs?? Seems like it would land & hurt like a bitch.
