no. you just abandon thread and go about your life. only works when thread is live.
Yeah, man. I've noticed they like the 40 somethings.
Luke Rockhold. Intriguing fight and he has the chance to KO him
Anderson won the second imo. He made an unbelievable accounting for himself. He's still probably an 8-10 ranked middleweight caliber fighter, which is unbelievable considering the guy is about to turn 44 in a couple of months.
The biggest issue with Anderson is he waits on guys too much. In his head he thinks he's eventually gonna catch guys, but in reality his reflexes and speed just isn't what it used to be. I think if Anderson was a little more aggressive he'd be able to have won tonight.
Wow he tried that weird Weidman punch
this is what happens what naturally gifted athletic young champions turn into slower reflex old guys. See Roy Jones Jr as a prime example.
Paulo Costa vs Israel, I need this fukkin fight
No actually he made Silva go the the center.
I enjoyed this fight from a striking perspective. It was awesome to me but
It kind of makes me appreciate the wrestling perspective.
In the sense of being boring.
I will always like the striking but Striking can also be boring.
Silva fought not not get finished.
I would enjoy Costa casting Israel's head into outerspace. I can't express how upset I am. Nick Diaz had a better fight against Anderson Silva. I need him humbled, so the next big chance he gets he gives everything he has.
Love you guys
hitting the sack
i'll be in there in a minute. warm the sheets up.
Well Roy Jones Jr. in his prime was even more insane in terms of reflexes and power than Anderson. Roy lost his chin completely. Boxer’s hit harder but I remember the fight were it was all over for Roy it started out and he was still throwing a lightning fast jab but then got hit flush once and it was over. It’s still the best comparison for Anderson. I’ve said this before but even when Anderson was still on the streak he was exiting his prime. People hate to hear it but he was already sliding out of his prime when he was fighting Chael and knocking out Vitor. Same with Fedor...He wasn’t in his prime when he was knocking out Rogers and so on.
Indicative of a closed right eye, hurt leg and some guy who hasn't fought in ages being gassed in a high tension bout when your reflexes are shot.
Ishihara gonna be great in RIZIN
I don’t know how @Wadtucket does it?
The fight sucked, and I feel Anderson basically threw the fight
They seemed pretty even going toe to toe, landing good counters on each other.
But Adesanya thre leg kicks, and that basically won him the fight.
Anderson could have gotten him to the ground in round three, and chose to just let him stand back up, whyy???
I do not think this was a title shot worthy performance, feed Adesanya to Yoel and call it a day, not impressed with his "next level" striking whatsoever.
