This has to be the main event with the least amount of experience combined in the modern era. Combined, they have 13 fights. Lesnar vs. Velasquez was a combined 14 fights. Rousey vs. McMann was a combined 15 fights. There has to be ones that I am missing.

Will have to use my free trial in the next several days.


Do you have infinite Fight Pass free trials?


FWIW I saw somewhere (Bleacher Report IIRC) that Sage's dad pulled him from TriStar to come back to Texas where he could keep an eye on him.

That could be a story. Overprotective daddy issues. That's not very Swayze, Sage. A throat rip may be in order... Or at least a spinning roundhouse kick.


Sometimes I forget I have Fight Pass. I was binging on that thing hard during the summer, so I've got some good mileage out of it. I still have only watched the prelims of the Seoul show. I'll try and find some time this weekend to check out the main card.

Age 19, I don't have a problem with it. Now three or so years from now? That could seriously affect his development. I think as he puts more fights under his belt, he is going to need to see other stuff thrown at him. This level of training worked fine in Legacy. It's too much of a gamble to rely on once you get into the top 30 or top 40 best lightweights.


Let him go to Jackson/Wink, Fit NHB, or the MMA Lab for one or two training camps in the future. If it doesn't work out, then it doesn't work out. However, once/if Sage and/or his family/handlers recognize MMA training goes past Katy, TX, then the better it will be for him.

Ponzinibbio is a very good striker. Finished Stahl with a devastating right hand and followup. If he isn't fighting someone who can be an absolute destroyer like Lorenz Larkin, he can do pretty well for himself.
