    Real fight is very unpredictable thats why you cant afford to be too nice. Im unfortunate enough to be involved in a knife fight. One guy was trying to rob my friend, this guy didnt know I was around. I came to interfere and this funk quickly pulled out a knife, thrust it toward my throat, **** sake, lucky I was able to react to it and ****ed the guy up in the eye. We ganged up on him and he run of course. His blade clipped my chin and I remember bleeding.

    Fact is, one cant assume the other person is unarmed. In any given situation, you just gonna have to assume the worst, and thats the sort of mentality is vital just to live out there. Its so violent theses days and it is scarry.

    Look under my user name



    Personally, I think that street fights are retarted, I enjoy competition, fair competition, the discipline etc that comes with being a great UFC fighter, etc...

    I enjoy it, was just wondering if anyone else did, not if anyone thought it was ****

    I don't know where you're getting your impressions from, but I never got that impression...on the contrary, I get the impression that they know that where they are there are rules and that out there, there are no rules...

    I've never seen the BS you're talking about with the current fighters...

    Sure, I've heard stories about Ken Shamrock hunting down bouncers with him and his possy on 6th street in Austin, but that was like 10-15 years ago...

    Successful MMA fighters are disciplined enough to know the differences.

    And I wasn't ever comparing wresting to UFC, I was saying that I absolutely HATE wrestling, that MMA is worlds different and a **** load better

    Heard about this guy >>>

    http://www.sherdog.com/news/news.asp?n_id=3459

    Theres a story about a grappler and a knife fighter. He wanted to challenge the knife man, he reckon he can put the guy down on the floor and make him submit. The knife man stabbed him in the arm

    I trained last week with my friend, its my friend whos teaching, hes a cage fighter trainer. Because hes training is geared toward winning in the cage, I though wow, these guys are too nice. I though why should I bother with some of the techniques when I can rip the guys eye out. Dont get me wrong, his ground work is excellent but its application in a real street fight can be questionable. Sliding the body around the mat and your cheek pressed down on the mat...try that on a hard concrete out on the street
    Different people like different things, a motorcycle racer and a automobile racer, they both like speed, but they go about getting it in different ways....for one to trash talk another just shows a lack of knowledge and a lack of respect, neither of which are legitimate

    same things can be said about those people who put a carpc in their cars and those who stick with a normal car audio system...different strokes for differnt folks...one isn't necessarially better than the other, it's just what one prefers.

    Yea Chris.. Sounds like you don't know much about the UFC.. They aren't about getting in fights to be the "tough guy" acting all hard and stuff.. They are in it for the competition (the majority anyhow).. A lot of the guys in the UFC are class acts who wouldn't go to a bar and look to pick fights because they are in the "UFC"..

    Stick to the topic..

    @Red - Yes, I'm addicted.. I got addicted when TUF Season 1 came out. I watched every episode and then started watching every UFC event I can get my hands on.. I've watched almost all of them and I'm still watching them now.. I cannot wait until this weekend..

    Liddell vs Couture III - It's gonna be off the hook!! I like them both A LOT (mainly because of them being the coaches on TUF1) but I'm rooting for Randy just because he's such a class act..

    Damn,

    I didnt say that those fighters go around picking fight in the street and think they can take everyone on. Those guys are lot more intelligent than that.

    I was talking about those individual who think cage fight is the ultimate fight cause it aint. And you RED, dont take it as an offence cause I was only asking if you were one of them.

    Streetfight WTF? I didnt say that street fight is better or more macho than cage fight. Streetfight is something that you may have to face and cant get out of it. Im NOT saying one should go around fighting people on the street, for fun for money or whatever. Street fight happens...

    I grew up in a place where getting stabbed or beaten up is like a norm. I know how it feels to be in those situation and I tell you the name of the game is to survive. Just out of interest, do you guys really know how to fight or just love seeing people fighting and knowing all those big names? theres a big difference there. Have you guys been in a really ****ty situations? a matter of life and death? You may think reality is rough, but that just how it is. You may change your view when faced reality.

    Just for the records there plenty more organized cage fight out there that you may not have discovered yet Reason why I said cause I only see UFC in this thread. I dont know maybe you guys think UFC is the best, hence you took the offence.

    Oh and the other thing, I used to love UFC and so did all my friends whos really into cage fight and do actually fight. I wonder why they dont make much noise of it these days. I think I already said so at the beginning

    Ah...I really love these forum

    I've been involved with MMA for about 6 years now. Seems like TUF started a big craze here in the states for the UFC in particular, but there is much more to the MMA world. Promotions like Pride FC, KOTC, Rumble on the Rock, WEC, etc... are all great events as well.

    For those interested you should check out the sherdog.com forums as they are the main "hangout" for MMA fans. Also, check out mmaweekly.com. THey have a live internet radio show everday at 12am EST/9am PST hosted by Ryan Bennet and Frank Trigg (who is currently in the Rumble on the Rock tournament finals). Sherdog.com also has a MMA podcast called "Beatdown" that you can find in iTunes hosted by TJ DeSantis and Josh Gross. They interviewed Chuck Liddell on the most recent episode.

    Now for my take on this weekends UFC. I think that Liddle will be able to handle Randy, and will win by a KO in the 3rd round. The fight I'm most looking forward to though is the Nick Diaz / Joe Riggs fight and the Frank Mir, Pe de Pano fight. I think that Diaz needs to get a decisive victory if he wants to remain in the UFC. Also, Mir is one of my favorite fighters and I'm looking forward to seeing him back in the ring after his accident.

    The UFC 58 event on March 4th is the one I'm excited about. Rich Franklin vs. David Louiseau for the belt, and GSP vs BJ Penn in his return to the UFC. Then in April we have Tito Ortiz's return vs. Forrest Griffin.

    Oh yeah, don't forget about some great Pride matchups on Feb. 26 @ Pride 31. We'll have Shogun vs. Mark Coleman, Nog vs. Josh Barnett, and everyone's favorite Quinton Jackson.

    Man, I'm rambling...

    hehe - I'll take the Ice Man...

    i had watched it a bit before TUF, and got the impression a lot of people got at first...look at those fags, rolling around ont he ground together in tights....what queers....thought it was funny, etc...

    then I started watching more of it for some reason...couldn't get enough of it...

    and now I'm looking to get into martial arts, not to fight in the UFC or anything, but because I enjoy the art of it all, the discilpine, etc

    Ah...I really love these forum
    I guess it's the apparent differences in language, because from this seat, it sounded a lot like you were saying, that crap is worthless, if you're going to train you should train to fight on the street....everything else is worthless....

    it's not like everyone else out there has a cush life man. I grew up in Houston, having to go get my father from drug fights, etc on a regular basis in grade school....i've been exposed to a lot more of it than you might think.

    The reason for mentioning UFC is because it's what readily avaliable to watch.

    I had friends who faught in high school, cage fights, not UFC.

    I enjoy UFC over some of that stuff because UFC guys are in there for the sport (for the most part), not to prove anything else other than they trained and have worked DAMN hard at this stuff and these are the fruits of their works...these guys are also the best of the best, unlike what you find in your local cage fights...

    Red GTi.

    Check out this site for female MMA. Its run by Debi Purcell, one of the most well-known female MMA fighters.

    Also, if you really, truly like MMA for the MMA aspect, I urge you to check out any Pride event coming up or rent some of the prior pride DVD's.
