MMA fighters now are obviously more well rounded and train in all areas
extensively. As my knowledge of grappling & ground game increased, i find
most MMA fight entertaining (used to only like “stand-up” fights). Fans
have to get used to fighters neutralizing each other in the cage, it’s
inevitable. Of course I love Varner vs Trujillo/Melendez vs Sanchez kind of
fights but everyone’s getting better and for me it’s very entertaining to
see technical fights too (especially if the commentator explains the
situation really well like Joe Rogan).
PS: Good job Robin. Always enjoy your breakdowns!!
It’s a weird feeling to watch an episode of this while packing my gym bag
and then leave to see Robin Black (and other Fight Network personalities)
on the mats and rolling.
We need more reporters like this who actually know their shit, it should be
a requirement for this job. So far us fight fans pretty much only have Mr.
Black and Joe Rogan, the rest is drama recapping. Thanks Robin.
I love the break downs Mr.Black,I train mma for 3 years now,and its really
cool to see and learn those small details that can make a big
difference,and I love the show, I watch every single episode.I also would
like to hear your opinion or analysis on the Aldo fight what did you like
about it? I think he did a great job reacting to every kick Lamas threw at
him which is a very rare quality to have but I dont know if he will be
successful in the Lightweight division,what is your opinion? Cheers.
lmfao The Fight Network realy UFC has to be paying a lot right? now that
they don’t even let you show the main card highlights! only you on 5ROUNDS
to say that one of the worst UFC’s PPV ever was great!!!
Anthony Pettis is a talented, exciting fighter. I really enjoy watching him
compete but I think he may be a lil overrated from an over all pound for
pound perspective. Him and Aldo would make for an intense action packed
fight but maybe he needs to defend his LW title at least once against one
of the top quality contenders already surfacing at 155 first. There are
plenty of dangerous challengers and tough matchups for him. I want to see
Aldo fight Conor McGregor. He may not be most deserving challenger right
now even with a 10 win streak but that contest would be so badass.
couldn’t agree more – mma fans need to learn when to shutup. I can’t stand
watching a fight, and hearing all the fans boo once the fight goes to the
ground. If you can’t enjoy watching grappling/BJJ – and if you can’t
appreciate the skill involved in it… then stop watching – stop trying to
make this sport a brawler vs brawler… some of us actually do appreciate
great technique… like rousey throwing tate around like a rag doll… i
don’t care if it’s not crazy wild – it’s impressive to have the ability and
knowledge to do that, and that’s why i enjoy the sport.
I am a really big fan of Chris Weidman. Its just really hard to not like
that guy, as a person or a fighter. He has made a great champion so far but
man does he have his work cut out for him looking ahead to potential
challengers. If the resurgent Belfort isn’t enough, names like Machida,
Mousasi, Souza should be just what it takes for him to keep elevating his
game. He for sure has a tough road to hoe if he wants to hang on to the
Two things so far, one stop comparing football to mma I didn’t pay 60$ to
watch the superbowl. Aldo took a knee for 5 minutes and you don’t see
anything wrong with that? That’s crazy guys come on. Although I didn’t have
any problem with this fight I just don’t like the analogy.
& two you talk about fighters health all the time and fighters knowing when
to call it a day and then you say Frank Mir should keep fighting. Frank Mir
has been knocked out 7 times in pro fights alone and just got floored by a
Uber knee. He has most likely been beat up alot in the gym and and took
alot of punishment in other fights. The guy is 34 maybe he should retire so
he can speak in 10 years not because he isn’t relevant.
i am such a huge fan, i watch ur show each week. and i agree with u why
hate on great fights people expect every fighter to be killers and take
huge risk, they forget all of does men are human and they play it very
smart. once again super show i love it
I cant wait for machida vs mousasi it is going to be a great fight filled
with technique and hopefully alot of action. Mousasi is very under rated i
have liked watching him for awhile as he dominates pretty much everyone he
faces. But im gonna take machida by 2nd rnd ko!
