    Fight was confirmed by Arjan via his instagram for the May 4th card that I do believe is headlined by Elias vs Brunson.



    sorry if posted elsewhere, did a search and couldn't find anything but Idk if it shows people I've blocked.

    ...especially considering that he was being hyped as the new hotshot Canadian MMA prospect going into that fight.


    Canada needs to step up its game. With GSP retired and Rory out of the UFC, the highest ranked Canadian fighter is Theodorou.

    yeah, this is a decent fight. Arjan is obviously a good wrestler but, I hope he doesn't fall in love with his hands in this fight and try to trade punches with Adams. I don't think either have good gas tanks though (Arjan's is actually pretty bad for a wrestler who trains at AKA even if part time) nor particularly good striking in terms of technique, but Juan packs more power in those punches.

    Probably will end up being a snoozer with 2 gassed fighters if it doesn't end in the 1st round.

    Arjan’s head movement is sorta silly, to me

    it doesn’t really match his flow or output at all and doesn’t seem all that useful

    I think that's part of what drains him, he wastes a ton of energy with movement that isn't needed. He throws everything he has into these big looping punches too.

    Brown people, we're just not that athletic. That's what it comes down to. Look like fuckin goofs when we try.

    All this GSP talk.

    I’m watching the whole main UFC 94 card again.

    Machida vs Silva 13-0 vs 13-0 according to Goldie.

    GSP vs Penn ll

    The biggest fight in MMA history at the time.

    Don’t mean to hijack. But I’m out for the next 90-120 mins.

    Guida vs Nate, Karo vs Stun Gun, and Good ol' Jonny boy's coming out party vs Bonnar. What an event.

    Also, wasn't biggest fight in MMA history.

    Fedor vs CC.

    Yes. It was a spectacular card. The Carpenter beat Nate. Guida coming out to Foo Fighters. What the Dragon did to Silva.

    That card was...

    I want him to do well but i dont think his wrestling is like munozs. Works at mid tier level but not upper, and no explosivenes

    Rumor is that Bhullar is bringing in Satish Jha for this camp.
    If he doesn't get injured and/or concussed too much, he should be too prepared to lose.
    Bhullar via Jhaplata 1st round.

    that's not true, have you seen Polynesians?

    being born a Polynesian male automatically makes you 28 times more likely to become an NFL player than any other ethnic group in the world, and Polynesians are all brown.

    to keep my post on topic, i think Juan Adams will win. bigger, seems more athletic, probably can stop the wrestling.

    If we're being completely honest no fight has generated the revenue or interest that Khabib vs Conor did.

    I mean Amir Khan was still decent. Aside from his glass chin he has some good wins. Lol.

    Brown with respect to physical skin color perhaps, but the genetic and physiological differences between a South Asian and a Polynesian seems like night and day (I say this having no expertise in the area, just an observation).

    To the other posters points, athletics aren't really prioritized in the country. Coupled with a low protein diet, India isn't exactly pumping out A level athletes. With that being said, I think that is almost entirely cultural. Where as countries like China have elite athletic programs dedicated to training sport specific athletes (olympic training centers), India has virtually nothing to cultivate domestic talent.... unless it's cricket.

    I have to go for a guy named Juan Adams, it's just how I am...unless he's fighting Jorge Washington and then I'd have to flip a coin.
