Had my first MMA session tonight. Was just ground work, but holy shit. I totally underestimated how strong your core needed to be for this shit. Also, I can't feel my legs.
Nice one, i've never grappled myself. Also wait till you get leg kicked in training. rip legs.
went through a 2 hour MMA session, seeing lesnar's matches(since hes back in WWE and Im a big fan) and some of Fedor's of course. Fedor's a freaking machine. seems to win matches out of nowhere with his submission skills.
Fedor was the guy that got me into mma in the first place, i became a fan right during his reign of dominance. He had this aura to him during that period, watching his fights live was so exhilarating too. There just seemed to be so much on the line every time he fought. I remember for the brett rogers fight i was so nervous, fedor was getting tagged more often than usual then the huge ko comes out from nowhere. "The former project kid from the cabrini greEEENNNNNS"
I was happy about that for days. I'd recommend checking out anderson silva's fights next (avoid the cote, maia and leites fights though)
so, erik koch... damn good fighter, but i thought he had to get through poirier first... so now he gets the title shot after defeating jonathan brookins
i think poirier is the better fighter, and he'll get through korean zombie and i think will be aldo's toughest challenge ever (and might possibly defeat him). and i hope he gets the shot before frankie edgar moves down to featherweight.
Hioki actually got offered the shot but he said he wanted one more fight before going ahead with it. Poirer is locked up with the korean zombie so i guess koch was the next choice, koch is quite a good striker but i agree that jose will probably run through him. Should be quite an exciting fight though. Poirer is still very young, i don't think they need to rush things with him. The korean zombie is a good test to see where he is at.
