    I am looking to get into MMA. Is it better for a beginner to start off training in wrestling and BJJ or should you focus on striking? Keep in mind I have no intentions on ever going professional, just would like to be able to defend myself and for the fun of it.

    Do you guys like the idea of a tie breaker fight between Junior Dos Santos and Stipe Miocic next?

    Do you guys have any info on the reasons Conor McGregor was in Miami as it may relate to his next fight?

    Any info on the recent Tony Ferguson situation involving his family or was that a big misunderstanding?

    Does the fight between Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith make sense right now? How do you see a decisive win for either helping them get another title shot and which of the two would have a better chance against Jones?

    How do you guys see a final run at a title in the bantamweight division for Frankie Edgar going? Good idea or bad idea?

    Ant, in your honest opinion, could Fedor in his prime (2004-2005) beat today's Jon Jones? After Jones' performance against Smith, I think it's fair to say he has a very good chance.

    Still waiting on Ant to answer my pressing question:

    Why do fools fall in love?

    The fans demand an answer.

    bulldog choke, Face crush, or neck crank?

    Personally think it was a modified blood choke with Rl's right arm position contributing to sealing off the right side.(prior to the limp arm drop)

    What are your thoughts on the position?

    Well. Conor is all over the media ( ESPN , Sherdog )… Do we expect nothing less from him at this point? Hope Proper 12 is a success or we could see him on the next ESPN Broke in the future...

    Guys, be honest, when you heard that Conor smashed a fan's camera over a selfie, did you assume that it was Dilon Danis?

    Poll is up for The Trenches, asking "Are you fed up with Conor McGregor's entitled behavior?"

    The options are "Yes, it's childish" or "No, he's a brilliant marketer."

    Some patriot buddies and I will be boarding a flight to Miami in ~10 minutes to let Mr. McGregor know we don't appreciate his disdain for American law. :cool:

    I'm only fed up with it because for some reason some people think it's newsworthy.
