    Maybe Wu Jing ( who is over 40? Holy crap) or for someone who is already working in the States, Daniel Wu of Into The Badlands?
  2. In regards to the above wiki page. I had to go there to figure out that this : was not a Wario joke.
  3. Them's Fightin' Words 2017 Predictions Contest

    No worries - I actually planned on dropping out after the GSP fight was announced or nulling that pick. Then when news came out about Hughes' accident had the same thought. In the end, your picks are just flat out better / more thought out.
  4. Them's Fightin' Words 2017 Predictions Contest

    I completely missed this thread until you tagged my name. I'm here, lurking pretty much every day. No, you take it based on two factors - 1) When I made the prediction I thought the odds of GSP returning were slim to none and talks had already broken down. I remember it not being too long after that the rumours took on steam and/or the announcement was made so that could be seen as a bit of a gimme pick by people more in the know. And more importantly, 2) You didn't predict a death. In my defence, I was thinking more of the dudes who probably abused steroids for large portions of their career (not going to name names because I learned my lesson), but had that prediction come true it's still a pretty sleazy choice on my part. Had Matt Hughes passed, I'm not a religious person but if I were, I'm pretty sure there would be a special place in hell for me. El Salva, I don't think you would need to make that an explicit rule - I'm not going to be doing that ever again and really, who else would? I guess I can take that as my legacy from this year's picks ; Clause 3.2 (The Setsuna Clause) - Don't be a dick and predict deaths. Congrats AxB!
  5. With that build, that's always going to be the case. He can make some adjustments in his game-planning so he doesn't gas in the first round but he'll never be a five round fighter. As an aside, I was imagining what it would be like having a first person POV camera in that first round when Ngannou was chasing Miocic down and just the thought scared the hell out of me. I'll give Ngannou credit for getting through the five rounds. Miocic never showed any urgency to finish the fight but Ngannou didn't find a way out for himself either, despite being able to barely stand upright.
  6. Time to find out what Ngannou is made of.
  7. Guilty. About 2 minutes into that fight when Cormier was beating Volkan in the standup had that 'what the hell was I thinking?' moment.
  8. Any news on when Gustafsson will be ready to fight again?
  9. I can't complain about a top heavy card when the top is this good. You've got the absolute pick'em in Miocic/Ngannou and the feel good story of 2017 Volkan in the co-main event. If I had to make a pick in the main, I'd go with Miocic being a bit sharper and finishing Ngannou in the first or second but I'm not surprised Ngannou is the favourite going in. It's hard to bet against a guy with that much power in his hands. Has Francis ever been in trouble in any of his past fights? All I can remember is him sending heads into orbit.
  10. China seems like a bad idea too given the difficulties in running events there and the lack of Chinese fighters on the current roster. Is there any reason they don't just run Korea as their international show? It would be easier, has an existing mma fan base and they have some people on their roster that would actually draw there. That would seem a logical move but I don't really know.
  11. The finals were a blow-out too. I'll forgive the weak Tenshin opponents based on his age and Rizin needing to keep him strong. It sucks though because he started off with such a strong win over Wanchalong before his opposition was dialed way back. I' prefer the Japanese kickboxing scene as a whole (Krush, Knockout, K-1 Japan, Rizin kinda) over pretty much any other non-UFC combat organisation. There are are a number of great fights he could have there - hopefully next year we get to see a bit higher level even if he's not getting matched up with Takeru or the other top guys.
  12. I don't know who Cro Cop should have fought but definitely not Kohsaka. That was pretty sad. Looking forward to the next three fights though.

    Per that article, they didn't even shoot the gamer cause he gave a false address. They shot a random person. When he opened the door.
