He did what Rampage Jackson did to Chuck Liddell the second time they fought. Machida moved foreward&nbsp; to force Rashad to react first and he beat him down. Rashad did have those two right hands, but like I said be [...] Aries: Master of War Sun, 24 May 2009 09:00:00 +0100 Analizing G.S.P. vs Thiago Alves <p>&nbsp;This fight is gonna be a good&#39;un! </p><p>&nbsp;First off past fights. When St.Pierre step in the Octogan against Karo Parisyan he looked a little nervous. Who wouldn&#39;t right? My take on his performance was that he was good not great. His technique on striking looked rudementionary. His hands didn&#39;t look as good, his kicks were okay, his wrestling took the fight to distance, and he powered out of countless submissions. Thiago looked good standing on his feet with Spencer Fish [...] Aries: Master of War Fri, 15 May 2009 09:00:00 +0100 Defense is As Good As Offense <p>Having excellent technique and power is great but what happens when you become the recipant of a barage of Phil Baroni type attacks? Answer: you&#39;ll need a pillow because you&#39;re going to sleep.</p><p>Defending your self can make a more complete fighter. Standing and trading power punches can make you suffer in the long run, on getting caught with a submission and deciding to be a man can leave you a gimp. Here is some basic tips on defense. Footwork is important. Moving around offering [...] Aries: Master of War Mon, 11 May 2009 09:00:00 +0100 Weathering The Storm <p>Many fighters train a motley of disciplines every day and it looks like they get nowhere.&nbsp; I have been training Jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai for a little over a year. Some fighters&nbsp;I watch&nbsp;have been training for 7 seven years and they look like amatuers. For instance Houstan Alexander. I&#39;m a Big Houstan Alexander fan and the fights with&nbsp;Eric Shaffer and Thiago Silva were heartbreaking to watch. When&nbsp;he was mounted he could go nowhere. When stuck in that position you&#3 [...] Aries: Master of War Sat, 09 May 2009 09:00:00 +0100 KJ noons....Wake Up <p class="MsoNormal">Someone let me know what makes KJ Noons think he can Box, he is not undefeated nor is he a prospect but he refuses to give up the Dream of him being a Boxing champion.&nbsp; I can&#39;t lie though KJ&#39;s hand speed looked impressive against Nick Diaz and looked superior but he didn&#39;t show any boxing instincts against Krazy Horse and doesn&#39;t seem to be fairing better with his hands without the threat of leg kicks and takedowns but he just doesn&#39;t seem to hav [...] ThaKahuna Thu, 23 Apr 2009 09:00:00 +0100 Kj Noons Team Takedown..Where's the Beef??? <p style="background-color: white" class="MsoNormal"> When I saw Shane Roller get stopped at WEC 40 by a virtual unknown Ben Henderson , and as I thought back to how Jake Rosholt got handled and submitted with ease by Dan Miller at UFC Fight night 17, I&#39;m thinking Team Take Down is kind of a let down. &nbsp;Here you have this Stable of Champion collegiate wrestlers being supported by a wealthy business man so all they have to do is Train MMA and not have to deal with the Poverty and financia [...] ThaKahuna Thu, 23 Apr 2009 09:00:00 +0100 Wrestling in MMA Wrestling Team Takedown AZ Combat Sports lights out the parties Over I loved to see hype exposed, Hyped movies, Hyped Artists, Hyped Teams, hyped Athletes, and&nbsp;especially&nbsp;hyped Fighters....(boxing or MMA) but this Kimbo thing was sad, it was worse than hype. it was just a bold faced lie. How could a company bet everything on a 40 year old bully? Thats bad business, I don&#39;t blame Kimbo he was just tryin to get paid. I blame the dummies at Pro elite, they thought they could buy up all these smaller shows and turn into the UFC, but they just ended up t [...] ThaKahuna Thu, 23 Apr 2009 09:00:00 +0100 Kimbo Hype Elite XC Dont Forget The Grip <p><br/>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The number of training methods out there to improve cardio, strength, explosiveness and technique are legion, but the oft used--yet rarely talked about body part--is the hand, or more importantly, the grip.<br/></p><br/><p><br/>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The&nbsp;grip is an integral part of every aspect of the fight game. Training the hands to increase strength endurance is a very easy addition to any regimen and will likely pay great dividends with minimal effort. It is true [...] Trika Fri, 20 Mar 2009 08:00:00 +0100 How To Gas Fast <p><br/>There have been&nbsp;many pundits out there talking about the Brock Lesnar/Randy&nbsp;Couture fight, covering every aspect of the fight itself. I want to talk about gassing out--in particular large men gassing out (being a large man myself I have firsthand experience in this arena over the years).<br/></p><br/><p><br/>It is well known that a large, muscled man is apt to spend his energy reserves very fast if he is not schooled in the art of energy conservation. This is because muscle cells use energ [...] Trika Wed, 19 Nov 2008 09:00:00 +0100 Lestar stunning victory I am stuned that Lesnar won I thought randy would retain his title. Well he had more experince. I thought Lesnar would get nervous and do some thing to cost him the title. I guess Brock was just to strong. LesnarChamp12 Sun, 16 Nov 2008 09:00:00 +0100 Randy Lestar KO Champ Brock Best Lift For Overall Strength, Explosiveness <p><br/>The best lift for overall strength and explosiveness is the clean.<br/></p><br/><p><br/>Many fighters today have well conditioned, muscular bodies, but it is where a fighter is STRONG that makes the difference, as well as Strength Endurance and Cardiovascular endurance. Many fighters with large chests, triceps, and shoulders cannot fight so well even though they look like they can bench press a house. The reason for this is that the push muscles are a FAR second to the pull muscles. There must be mu [...] Trika Fri, 26 Sep 2008 09:00:00 +0100 Ufc 88 <p>Wooow. Who would have thougt that Evans woul knock Lidell that brutally!!!</p><p>After the match against Ortiz I felt that he never could be one of the great. But he has really shown me wrong.</p><p>And then the Ace! I really hopes that he will get the confident back and beat the shit out of Silva. Franklin is a trou champ. Little bit worried&nbsp;though about the way his eyebrouses cuts so easy</p> Mats Sun, 07 Sep 2008 09:00:00 +0100 Brock Lesnars Win <p>Apart from Brock Lesnars shit tattoo on his chest the man is a fighting machine , Heath Herring was amature to think that Brock Lesnar was going to be easy or goin to be a lay down fight. Seriously think about it yes he was a wrestler with WWE but u just carnt be a normal bloke to be able to do that , he was a pro mat wrestler before the WWE. It was a shame he got caught with a submission in his last match but like he said he was stupid then and worked his ass off for this match and it showed [...] Robertsbrock Sun, 10 Aug 2008 09:00:00 +0100
