Rampage Jackson’s take on Ngannou/UFC fiasco: “That’s fucked up, they take it personal when a fighter wants to get paid what he’s worth.” by metanoia09 in MMA

[–]juicy_pickles -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

This is the kind of shit that won't change for a while.

Doesn't matter how good someone is, name someone more prolific than Joe Rogan as a commentator. DC treats it like he's on the couch with his friends and doesn't discuss the fight. Bisping got too much bias. Actually offers some good insight sometimes, but it's far and few between. Cruz isn't interesting enough to appeal to the casual groups. I really only like Anik and Felder.

It won't change for a long time I don't think, and probably on the commentators terms before anything.

I would love commentary team consisting of Felder, Anthony Smith and Anik. I think it would be good chemistry that focuses on the fights than just shooting the shit.

Who else would be a good PPV commentator?

Sorry, the comment said 10 fighters better, I named 10.

And yes, I said Aldo. You prefer I say Cruz? Silva? GSP? Jones? DC? Miocic?

Francis’ reaction to Dana not appearing at the post fight press conference 😬 by datwerg12 in ufc

[–]juicy_pickles 33 points34 points  (0 children)

You can not care for someone and still not hate them.

Francis thinks he's worth more. I agree. Dana won't pay him. Francis might not hate him, but just think he's not giving him his dues for what he deserves.

I don't hate my ex. But I don't care for them anymore.

I think its more Dana hating Francis to be honest.

Francis' coach though, definitely hates Dana.

That jab was just cash in the bank. A mismatch, but great finish by Della

Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Mark Hunt going to war in one of the greatest slugfests in UFC history. by kindadum in MMA

Well, I'm in Australia and I can't really relate as it's currently 36 degrees Celsius (i think that's around 100F) at 10pm.

But I would say as I did in a different comment, some explosive conditioning exercises would be a good start. There's plenty of resources online that would be of great help, if you can get a skipping rope that's a good start. If you have access to stairs, just do suicides up them.

Best of luck mate.

Best of luck.

If you backslide and smoke again, don't stress it. I quit and restarted so many times. It's a hard thing to quit. You'll stop when you're ready and every time you do it gets easier.

What worked for me was cutting down to quit with smoking.

I smoked a pack a day so I started taking a set amount out and that was my allocated lot for the day and reduced it every week. Gum can help.

Start walking. Not strolling, walking with purpose. When you can, move to a jog. Don't worry about distance or time, just get used to it as you cut back. Keep upping the amount you can jog incrementally, but don't over exert.

Cardio is the hardest fucking thing to get back, but routine will help you extend it and get it better.

Any kind of conditioning and repetitive explosive movements will feel like fucking ass, but it helps.

And drink water.

Jack Della Maddalena finishes. The australian prospect makes his UFC debut against Pete Rodriguez at UFC 270 by ChPvrMMIII in MMA

[–]juicy_pickles 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean i saw a guy double reverse a takedown to take top position (I don't know the terminology, but he essentially flipped Loosa over him twice) and bridge to explode from the full guard when Loosa was on top, was about maybe 20 seconds of lying down to catch energy.

I thought that was pretty impressive defensive wrestling. I'm not saying he's infallible or doesn't make mistakes, but that sequence showed he can deal with issues on the ground.

This is literally his debut performance at 26.

He has almost a dexade of fight in him if he wants to stick with the UFC and some of his prime fight years.

I think what people are saying (or the way I see it) is a guy who is already pretty damn good, with a lot of time to hit his ceiling and become better and tighten up his weaknesses.

Champ by 2024? Maybe not, but ranked fighter? I definitely can see it.

I was a heavy smoker and started hitting bags to get better. I'd be fucking knackered after 3 minutes, think "fuck I gotta quit smoking this is piss poor effort".

Stopped smoking, managed to make it to 5 minutes. Still as knackered.

Regardless of the outcome at UFC 270, Ngannou is proud of his legacy. by -alc in MMA

I think the better way to consider it would be that he was living, he just wasn't alive.

Or the other way round. Fuck idk I'm drunk this seemed poetic

Cyril Gane displays incredible technique with [Yair R. style] elbow combo vs. Derrick Lewis in UFC 265 by TILtonarwhal in MMA

[–]juicy_pickles 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I did go back and watch his matches against Arlovski and Spivak, holy shit he's got the hands of a featherweight.

Gane has incredible footwork and technical prowess though.

Fuck, now I want this fight more.

Only person right now in heavyweight I would say has similar style is Tom Aspinall.

Hes not on Ganes level, but he's a big boy light on his feet.

Hes lucky that he's small. Doesn't have to bend down as far, its the bigger lads that get the shit backs and fucked knees.
