  1. Is Pokimane that bad ? I remember watching a Youtube "internet expose" of her a few years back and was left scratching my head on the hate she gets. I saw one the other day where they were trying to tear her down because she "might have a boyfriend and her male fans were upset".
  2. Werdum will probably go to Bellator. Lose to Meathead but beat Ryan Bader.
  3. Dana has announced Khabib vs Gaethje on Oct 24th. Biggest fight of the year for me. Fascinating match up.
  4. You can verbally submit. Be it in a submission or from strikes. The problem is most fighters haven't got a clue where they are when they are taking a ton of damage. So you need the refs to be able to quickly assess the situation.
  5. Theres no excuse of the roar of the crowd confusing them now. Bisping was shouting for Yan vs Aldo to end the other week with Leon Roberts in charge, that went on to long as well. I like Herb Dean and he is usually on point but if an MMA ref has an off night, the fighters can get badly hurt.

    The Boxing Thread

    Its an exhibition fight as well, basically just a public sparring session. No one is getting knocked out or hurt. Feel sorry for anyone buying this on PPV.
  7. For anyone who can't be arsed reading it and I don't blame you. He is claiming he has no idea why Twitch banned him and they gave him no answer for why they did it. Then he dances around alot of questions, his publicist pipes in, blah blah blah Champions Club, big return elsewhere, no real answer to what anyone vaguely cared about...
  8. I'm 20 years in watching now. Its like football, I think I'm stuck watching for the rest of my life now. When its good, its hard to beat as a sport for excitement. The UFC are scumbags and easy to get annoyed with but then I look at the UFC252 card and think ahh fuck it I'll stay up for that. Heavyweight Stipe Miocic (c) vs. Daniel Cormier [a] Heavyweight Junior dos Santos vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik Light Heavyweight Magomed Ankalaev vs. Ion Cuțelaba Bantamweight Pedro Munhoz vs. Frankie Edgar Bantamweight Sean O’Malley vs. Marlon Vera
  9. Love Sam. His channel is amazing. I've done his Nashville fried chicken before and it was incredible. He is a really funny guy too.
  10. I really liked Rose vs Andrade. Very close, high level womens fight with some nasty exchanges. Yan vs Aldo had some great action too. The other two mains were rather forgettable. I see alot of disappointment online about it looking like any other UFC show but I'm guessing that makeshift arena had a ton of powerful AC units pumping cold air around it. glb has said the weather is crazy hot out there, it would have been nuts to put an open air show on a beach, aesthetically cool but 5 rounders in 40 degree heat would be mental.

    Jack Charlton passes.

    I remember watching Ireland beating Italy in the 1994 WC surrounded by my Dads Irish side of my family in Dublin and everyone going fucking mental. Jack Charlton what a legend.
  12. I seem to recall Nike giving Jon Jones a 6 figure sponsorship deal then cancelling it when he started fucking up. He probably put them off for a long time.
  13. Its impressive they pulled it off on this short notice. Masvidal was complaining about pay and in a contract dispute last I heard so they must have got all that sorted quickly too. I like Jorges guts for taking it but Usman is a tough fight for anyone even with a full training camp, so I think Usman will grind it out but Masvidal having his moments.

    Instant Noodles.

    I kind of prefer the spicy Korean ones so Shin Ramyun and Samyang Hot Chicken for me. Mikey Chen one of my favourite food vloggers did a great video recently reviewing some fancy Ramen packs.

    The Boxing Thread

    I thought he beat Reid in a close one, been a few years since I saw that one though. Remember hoping there would be a rematch. Eubank went on to give Carl Thompson hell in his last two fights. It was far from say the RJJ retirement tour, where he lost to bloody Enzo. Calzaghe was a really frustrating boxer to be a fan off. I remember years off getting excited on who his next world title fight would be against. Would it be RJJ, Hopkins, Ottke, Tarver etc then it would be Tocker Pudwell or Mger Mkrtchyan and you would be thinking who the fuck is that and have to go searching them on boxrec. He got his shit together with that run at the end though. After Lacy and Kessler he was undoubtedly the number 1 Super Middleweight in the world at that point. The win over Hopkins looks even better in hindsight too, with Hopkins immediately going on to beat Pavlik, Pascal and Cloud and give Dawson all kinds of problems. I don't think he was the greatest British boxer ever and he was extremely frustrating to follow at times but he was far above Euro level, suggesting that is just ridiculous. He was ranked top 10 pound for pound by Ring magazine after the Lacy and Kessler fights. He is in the International Boxing Hall of Fame and many boxing fans consider him a top 5 All Time for his weight division.
  16. Khabib's father Abdulmanap has died after a battle with COVID. He was 57. Trying to not get angry about things like a certain Irish dickhead calling Khabib a coward for wanting to follow the pandemic rules and not be flying around the world to fucking fight islands when his father was in hospital. Rogan telling his fans wearing masks is for pussys. Dana putting his fighters, the UFC staff and their families at risk to keep the money rolling in. Keyboard warriors giving Rose Namajunas shit for backing out of an event when two of her family had just died from the virus. I don't even know where to start on all the stupid shit Schaub has said. Its all so depressing.
  17. I don't even think Lord Cookie could solve this mess.

    NFL 2019!

    If they can get him fit and injury free that could be huge.
  19. The prelims are well worth a look too. Just 4 fights and the last 3 are crackers. Poirier vs Hooker is all time kind of greatness. A must watch main event.
  20. I live in Liverpool. The biggest difference I see on here compared to football fans in Liverpool is in Liverpool itself its the Everton fans who are really pissed not ManU like here. My boss is a die hard blue and told me last season "I don't care if they win the European Cup just not the fucking league, we will never hear the end of it". I can't imagine he is happy right now. Most the Liverpool fans I know quite like having a ton of glory hunting southern fans as it brings them in more money.
  21. It took a fair amount of booze but I made it.
  22. Everton should have scored twice in the last few minutes. So this must be all set up for a ridiculous Liverpool winner in the last few minutes
  23. Im not enjoying this game much but from the sound of the Villa crowd on NBC they seem to be loving it. They are singing and cheering about everything.
  24. This game is so bad it would be pretty funny if Villa manage to shithouse a 1 nil out of it they totally don't deserve.
  25. Why am I getting hyped up and excited to watch fucking Villa vs Sheffield Utd ? It will probably be a turgid nil nil as well to bring me back down.
