MMA Discussion Thread

Post by Pr4wn on Thu Oct 06, 2016 2:24 pm

Thought I'd start a general discussion thread, rather than having a different thread for each event.

Cormier vs Rumble has been confirmed as the headliner for UFC 206 in Toronto. I now live in Toronto and I've already registered for tickets!

Should be a good fight. Although Cormier won last time, seemed to be the better, stronger, more rounded guy, Rumble had that first round in a big way. Can he capitalise on that again and finish Cormier? Any more details on the card?

Thought Bisping would have ko'd Henderson.

His face was a mess after.
Didn't see the fight.

Fair play to Hendo for going the distance.

Americans are butthurt that Hendo didn't win when, aside from a couple of big shots landed by Dan, Bisping controlled the fight.

It's been confirmed that Bisping will defend his title against GSP later this year.

be interesting to see how gsp is after such a lay off, any where near his best and he picks bisping apart

seen in other news that brock has retired after being found guilty of doping (surprise surprise). be very surprised if he wasn't juiced for majority of his fights

Easy to forget that GSP is going up a weight class and will be giving up so much in terms of reach. Bisping is notoriously hard to take down and he has fast hands and incredible cardio. This could be closer than some people think. GSP has been out a long time.

while gsp was at his best on the ground do think he improved his stand up considerably he picked koscheck and shields apart on the feet, i know neither of them are the best on their feet but also thought he beat alves fairly comfortably standing before taking him down.

bisping is decent standing, volume punching who applies pressure. which he may not be able to do effectively if hes worried about the take down. gsp at his best has a massive speed advantage. if this was gsp of 09/10 wouldnt give bisping a chance. as it is its a really interesting fight. if i stick my neck out id go with gsp on points after getting a few take downs to stick. while bisping does have decent takedown defence he's not fought anyone as good as gsp, rockhold and sonnen probably the two best and he got a defeat against both (although i did think he won against sonnen)

I think Bisping can win this. The naturally bigger fighter who has good stand up and great cardio added to the fact this is GSP's first fight at the weight after a long lay off. Does anybody think GSP will keep this standing? Or will he look for the takedown? Surprised GSP has taken this fight as opposed to fighting Woodley with the possibility of a CM fight, which I think we would be massive financially. What happened to Romero getting a shot?
