    [–] Ruff housing is not allowed noc_programmer 1 points ago in rarepuppers

    That was not what I was expecting.

    [–] Cain's response to Francis's power being compared to a Ford Escort noc_programmer 1 points ago in MMA

    I blame his camp. I feel like he could have had a much better career if he trained somewhere else.

    [–] [SPOILERS] Israel Adesanya avoiding a classic Anderson Silva move noc_programmer 2 points ago in MMA

    That's not the best argument to make. He had cardio issues before USADA as well.

    [–] [SPOILERS] Israel Adesanya avoiding a classic Anderson Silva move noc_programmer 2 points ago in MMA

    He doesn't seem to be able to take shots as well anymore is what I was specifically getting at.

    [–] [SPOILERS] Israel Adesanya avoiding a classic Anderson Silva move noc_programmer 16 points ago in MMA

    Chris hasn't looked as good after Luke pounded his head in for way to long imo. I wonder if that shit took years off of his career.

    [–] My parents after immigrating to America in 1992. noc_programmer 2 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    I know people make fun of him and everything, but he would legit put hits out on people back in the day.

    [–] Why does anyone still try traveling with fiat instead of crypto nowadays? noc_programmer 10 points ago in CryptoCurrency

    What normal person walks around with 50k?

    You are assuming he is a normal person. There are some people who have very weird ideas about what is normal.

    What's wrong with black and white checkerboard tiles?

    [–] Joseph Benavidez: Nothing good has come from UFC dual champion fights noc_programmer 1 points ago in MMA

    Well, having a champ champ means when you book them once, the other division will have to wait way too long to have a title bout, so champ champ = less title fights per year, and we know the UFC don't want that seeing how they come up with interim belts to headline a PPV.

    Injuries are also much worse for clogging the division. You get injured and are out for 7 months then you come back to defend one belt and the other is probably going a year or more without a defense.

    [–] Joseph Benavidez: Nothing good has come from UFC dual champion fights noc_programmer 14 points ago in MMA

    The UFC doesn't want them to. Dana said the only person he might make an exception for would be DC, but generally, he doesn't like the idea of them potentially clogging up two divisions by getting injured.

    [–] Robbie Lawler's takedown defense against Rory MacDonald noc_programmer 0 points ago in MMA

    He is definitely more accomplished, but the gap isn't incredibly large by any means at the NCAA level. As for the Olympic level, as far as I know Hendricks never even tried for it so there is no way of knowing how good he would be. It's a different style of wrestling at that level.

    [–] Robbie Lawler's takedown defense against Rory MacDonald noc_programmer 17 points ago in MMA

    Hendricks was a 4x NCAA all-american. Askren is a 4x finalist and two time NCAA champion and Olympic wrestler.

    You are leaving some stuff out here. Like the fact that Hendricks also is a two time NCAA champion and I believe a 3x finalist. As for the Olympics, I don't think Hendricks ever even attempted that did he? I think he went straight from college to training for MMA iirc. If you are going to call someone else out for their misinformation, don't spread more misinformation of your own.

    [–] Netflix is doing a series about the history of BJJ and Rickson Gracie noc_programmer 28 points ago in MMA

    Didn't he teach them Judo and they renamed it to BJJ for some reason? I just don't recall what the reason was anymore, but I remember they actually had a good reason to rename it. Then again I could just be remembering incorrectly.

    [–] Jon Jones: Fighting Daniel Cormier at heavyweight β€˜would take some serious convincing’ noc_programmer 1 points ago in MMA

    HW is a dangerous place. It's not that uncommon for the more skilled fighter to lose because they get caught. That's why no one holds the title for long in that division and why Fedor's run was so impressive in Pride.

    [–] Ol' Billy Altar Boy noc_programmer 1 points ago in JoeRogan

    That's just being silly. There is a difference between writing jokes and riffing. Comics who write jokes usually spend a good amount of time staring at a piece of paper going over their setup, punchline, and tag trying to cut any excess words, making sure it comes across as clear, some will mark areas for pauses or denote beats, etc. They'll continue to modify and refine it after shows until they hit the finished product.

    Bill doesn't seem to do this at all. He just riffs on stage and keeps the things that work or don't in his head for the next performance. I think calling that writing undervalues the time and effort put in my comics who do write. Not to suggest that riffing isn't time consuming work. It is just a different style of working.

    No one way is better than the other. It's just different styles that different comics prefer, but there is a difference.

    [–] Jon Jones abnormal drug-test results continue into January noc_programmer 52 points ago in MMA

    I mean he has been suspended twice and lost a fight via DQ for illegal elbows. That's not every time. We probably don't know who the best cheater is. He is that damn good.

    [–] Robert Whittaker survives Yoel Romero's onslaught by threatening a single leg takedown on the Olympic Silver Medalist. noc_programmer 67 points ago in MMA

    I mean even though he was being hit and not looking the best in this gif, he was still defending pretty well here. He popped up fast and kept moving trying to create space. Even when the distance was closed he had the leg wrapped with one arm while the other arm was used to block elbows before exploding up into a single leg and rolling through the kimura attempt. He was moving and defending intelligently even if he didn't exactly look great doing it.

    I mean technically the worst. This has to be a record for positive tests?

    [–] Ol' Billy Altar Boy noc_programmer 1 points ago in JoeRogan

    You mean I read the quote then repeated what he said.
