Toronto National Sea Flea (4/11)

  1. Yahya out as well. Damn, aside from the main, that was the one fight I was looking forward to if for no other reason than Rani Yahya co-maining a UFC in 2021. He has had some amazing low-key longevity.
  2. The extremely rare weekend where I'm more looking forward to the Bellator card than the UFC's. One Championship has a decent show as well but was hurt by losing Ozcan-Sittichai so it's basically a two fight event at this point. They'll be taping the next two shows at the same time as well. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E7MicFAUYAEbFhA?format=jpg&name=large
  3. Not gonna lie - this one really got under my skin. Just think of the hundreds of millions ( billions, in all likely ) of people in the world who would give everything to get those shots. I live in Myanmar and we're getting hit with the 'third wave', but it's been horrendously worse than anything before. Everyone that I know has lost someone in the past couple of weeks and we're not the only country in the region in this position. What really grates on my nerves was seeing a subsect of the Trumpers, most likely all anti-vax, using Myanmar as an example of what should have happened in the States and just....an incoherent rant is all that comes to my mind. That's it, I won't go into it any further as much as I'd like to rant about the situation here. Also, this is by no means a political post - I'm not American so not attempting to draw anyone into anything. I guess, if you could take one thing from this, remember that as fucked as you think your country is ( whatever side you're on), at least appreciate the healthcare system and support that is in place because most of the world does not have that. Unless you've bought into the 'Myanmar military are the good guys line'. Then go fuck yourself. Conspiracy theorists who think they 'know' are also the most easily led to believe absolute total bullshit propaganda.
  4. Yeah, you can just see how unglued he was. I only watched the main this morning and will watch the rest of the show later this evening but man, yeah, dark is a good way to put it. On the one hand, it's been said before and I'm saying it again, maybe they should not put microphones in front of people who were just concussed and/or seriously hurt. On the other hand, those thirty seconds of McGregor looking like a wild man while babbling incoherently were...something. I doubt Poirier will be sitting out for McGregor to rehab that injury. I expect the only way we see part four is if Dustin comes up short in his deserved title shot.
  5. In my experience, for those with an aversion to flying it never gets good but it definitely gets easier. Up until this last year, I was probably averaging 20 flights per year and I still can't shake that 'this will be my last flight ever' feeling. I will say, if you're doing long haul flights with multiple transits, like 4 hours -> 12 hours -> 3 hours, by that last flight you're totally ready to accept whatever comes because you just want it all to be over. I also can't sleep on flights. My wife and I have always been lucky and it seems like at least 1/2 of the long ( 8+ hour) flights we've been on, we can usually either get a row to ourselves, or a row each. Still, I can maaaaaybe doze for fifteen minutes at a time but the slightest turbulence and I'm wide awake again. So yeah, I'd say 'try not to overthink' or 'you're more likely to die on the way to the airport' but I also know what it's like to get trapped inside your head and be sure you'll happen to be on the 1-in-however million flights that end badly.
  6. To be fair, if he'd done that in this fight he probably would have been pieced up and put out. I've never been a big fan of Nate's but you've got to respect his ability to stay relevant. He's really maximised the Connor win and extended his career with big money fights. I didn't get a chance to watch this live but just wanted to jump in to give Moreno another hell yeah! I really didn't expect him to get the win here but man, now that draw last time out was just another plot point in his rise to champion. You seriously could not come up with a better comeback story for that guy. Is he the real life Rocky? I actually hope Figueirdo sticks around at FlyW for one more fight because it would probably do better business than any other fight for Moreno at the moment.
  7. Was Ian the Rotten who did a tape trading or selling business in the mid-90s? I'm not exactly sure the specifics of this story but a 13 year old me was internetting back in the day - I think I must have been in like a chat room or something - and he was stunned that I had never seen ECW before. Said he'd send me a tape, he did, and I wore that shit out and passed it around all over my middle school. It was just a best-of style dub, with the cane Dewey angle, lots of 2-Cold/Sandman, Rey/Psicosis, a bunch of other stuff. Also, 13 year old me happily handed over my home address to someone on the internet ( who may or may not have been Ian or Axl Rotten). Edit : Just to say that I could be misremembering this whole story and it was just some random person who sent me the tape. For whatever reason, I remember it being one of the Rottens though.
  8. I'm also somewhat here - but just anything pre-1977 or so aside from Bruce.
  9. Sorry, I totally forgot that I even signed up for this one and was thinking to give it a pass. I'm in though - love me some kung fu discussion - and will mull over my pick tonight and get it in.
  10. I like both of these guys and they both have great stories on how they got here. Predicting Chandler - Oliveira in a UFC title fight a few years ago would have been the hottest of hot takes, even with the craziness that is mma. I actually hope Chandler pulls this one off. He was one of the bright spots in Bellator that I always tuned in for and even if he can't hold the title long, it would be a great moment for someone who has grinded for so long. Not taking anything away from Oliveira either, just by age this is Chandler's one and only shot.
  11. This sucks. I am not sure I interacted with him at all, outside of maybe a couple posts in the mma forum. I don't have anything to add that hasn't been said but will reiterate, he had a strong personality that might have rubbed some people the wrong way at times but was also an amazing human who I always felt genuinely cared about the other members as more than characters on a message board. The number of people here sharing stories on how OSJ brought a personal touch to an online board is enough to make me teary-eyed. The guy is a legend and will be sorely missed. RIP OSJ.
  12. This. I had never played a Fire Emblem game before so went in totally blind. It's clearly designed for multiple playthroughs so that you can work through each house's story, and while I loved MOST of the game, it was incredibly tedious the way you needed to build relationships in order to train / level up your characters. As much as I would like to play it again using a different house, I just don't feel like committing that much time running around looking for objects and cooking/eating/whatever else there was.
  13. Here's your One Championship card reminder for tomorrow. This entire card has changed since it was first announced aside from maybe Sage Northcutt's sister's fight? Northcutt and Bigdash both out due to Covid. De Ridder, the middleweight champion who beat Aung for the MW title last time, steps in on very short notice to get a chance at Aung's light heavyweight title. Honestly did not realise it was for the LHW title until I started typing this. Alvarez/Yoon with quick turnarounds. Guessing they threw some good money at both to keep them in Singapore due to the way Eddie's last fight ended and knowing how hard it is to bring people in and out of the country.
