Okay, if there’s fantasy football, there’s got to be some MMA loving freaks out here like myself.

I just spent an entire weekend at the M-1 global event in Amsterdam and there were some pretty good fights

So, get your butt in the thread and let’s get reaaaaddddyyyyyy to rruuuuummmmmbbbblllleeeeeee.

To get things started, who are your favourite fighters, do you train, what leagues do you watch etc. etc.

I am personally a Fedor fanboy, but that has more to do that his manager and him basically introduced me to MMA . I train Muay Thai and have done very few BJJ classes. Being a Fedor fan I used to watch Pride when that was still around but now it’s mainly UFC and the M-1 events when I am invited.

Of course there are loads of other fighters I like to watch such as Wanderlei Silva, Anderson Silva, GSP , Cro Cop and a few others Osu!

Lance? Where art thou? :D

Lance can roundhouse a frozen turkey off the top of a fridge with his bare feet! He’s that tough. :D

I wouldn’t really say I’m a fan, but I enjoy watching them sometimes. I probably would’ve been more of a fan if it wasn’t for a crazy roommate I had.

This guy (roommate a few years back) got into MMA while I got into bodybuilding. He wanted to wrestle and fight all the time for “practice”. He was crazy and I worried that I might wake up being murdered by him because he was so unpredictable.

Needless to say, I moved out, lol. I hear he is doing pretty well in his local MMA fights though and he has the crazy personality for it. Anyway, had to share that with you. ;-)

I’m more into bodybuilding, lol.

I was like that when I first started, but that’s just the beginning most of the time. Show offs are not respected in the MMA world and it’s only sweet to see them lose.

Silva vs Griffith was great. I love the way he moves, like there’s nothing and then just stops Forrest right in his track. Forrest made the mistake of falling into his punches.

Generally a kick is delivered with the shins or bottom part of the shins. Seriously, if you’ve ever kicked a bag full force with the upper part of your foot, you’ll know WHY we don’t do that in martial arts. I did that on my first ever practice, I was limping half the practice.

I am a huge MMA fan. I’d say that GSP is my favorite fighter followed closely by Clay Guida. GSP has been my favorite since I saw him fight Jason Miller. My favorite fight is either the Tyson Griffin vs Clay Guida or the Clay Guida vs Diego Sanchez. That dude always puts on a great show.

I do train and I’ve actually got a fight coming up in under 5 weeks. If anyone here is in the Salt Lake area and wants to come watch me, let me know and I’ll give you the details. I’m definitely better on the ground, but am working hard on my stand-up game. I’d kick more, but I broke my foot on some frozen turkey on top of Adrien’s fridge. :)

Hey, I should come to the Netherlands and we should have a FD vs. GR fight! :D
