    Randy Couture vs. Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 102

    Randy wants to fight the best and is also a fan of the sport not just the ufc, he has always expressed a desire to fight both Nog and fedor since they were/are the best in the heavyweight division. I think this will be a good fight, and if im honest would love to see Randy try to make this a...

    Cro Cop stiffs UFC, signs with Dream

    Nooooo thats not true at all, Mirko was not having much success in the octagon, Dana spoke to him and they both decided to release him from the UFC so that he could recover, from what i understand Dana and Mirko kept contact and Mirko contacted him after he had had his surgery requesting if Dana...

    Shotokan As Applied to MMA

    You may have missed my point, I agree with Tez that Karate IS NOT NEW MMA, yet NO ONE ( even in pride or shooto ) has been able to use it as effectively as Machida has.he is Currently 15-0, with wins over stephan bonner,Tito Ortiz, Rich Franklin and BJ Penn ( although a contraversal one at that...

    Shotokan As Applied to MMA

    I have to agree with tez, karate being used in MMA is not a new idea ( to be fair to everyone unless you are a serious MMA fan you would proberly not of seen Pride, shooto k-1 or any of the other Japanese shows ) What is NEW is that no one has been able to use it as effectively as...

    Machida knocks out Evans - UFC 98 Results

    He needs to beat Bonnar and then beat the steroid test after. Machida has already beat Bonnar..... and Rich Franklin for that matter, Rampage will be his next fight.

    Machida knocks out Evans - UFC 98 Results

    yep I know, its frustrating.....and it seems that you cant actually have a conversation about MMA on this site without having this debate every other post. It kinda makes me want to just post on MMA forums, it doesnt look much like we co-exist on here too well....and i must say its not really...

    Machida knocks out Evans - UFC 98 Results

    That would be true for front kicks since its similar to the way you gain power for a muay thai knee, but for legs/body/head kicks that come across a horizontal axis power is lost since weight is taken away from with backward motion.

    Machida knocks out Evans - UFC 98 Results

    You know what always amazes me about Martialtalk........how no matter what the topic is every single thread in the MMA section has someone somewhere saying ''ITS JUST A SPORT''.......i think even if we did start a thread entitled ''best hair cut in MMA'' the second post would be ''i really liked...

    Machida knocks out Evans - UFC 98 Results

    I agree there are ways other ways to generate power but just not as much as a muay thai kick, science and body machanics have shown this.Machida's kicks are snappy, this makes them hard to telegraph but are clearly not as powerful since he does not throw his weight into the strike.the way he...

    Machida knocks out Evans - UFC 98 Results

    That would be because IMO the karate base that Machida has is not something that I believe is effective in MMA, now I know what everyone will say..''how can you say that considering machida is the champion'' well because of what I said before about machida's timing and distancing, if he didnt...

    Machida knocks out Evans - UFC 98 Results

    I knew this would happen as soon as Machida got the belt. I have a dilemma with the whole thing though since I dont actually think its the 'karate'' that got Machida where he is now, I think its a lot more to do with his own natural fighting ability, his ''awkward'' style and his amazing...

    Mir vs Lesner 2

    What needs to be asked ( and what a lot of you are forgetting ) is can Mir repeat the performance he had against Nog....Mir had an eceptional fight that night, he fought better then he ever had ( i mean have a lot at his fights before Nog....he was less them impressive ) all that matters is if...
