I give it to Dunham, but it was a really close fight. The judges saw blood and automatically assumed Sherk had won. They need to completely redo the judging criteria, all they care about is take downs and blood. Near submissions should be counted and striking needs to be worth a lot more (granted I’m biased because I’m trained mostly in Thai boxing)
I really gotta see this movie
Dana White needs to chill out, yes we get it Mir had a boring fight but it takes two to tango and Cro cop just stood there the whole fight. At least Mir knocked him out in the end (which btw was the only knockout of the night). Im not really a Mir fan but I respect the guy hes been a top 10 heavyweight for along time.
I couldnt have said it better myself
I’m having an insomniatic night so I guess I’ll blog about whats on my mind……
Theres not many people in the this world that can consider themselves “close” to me. In part because I dont allow it but mostly because I’m a very intense individual (thats my way of saying I’m hard to deal with). I posted a quote a few days ago that really made me realize something about myself (the quote came from a cheesy video game fyi).
“He strives for each attack to be the most powerful strike he has ever
made in his life. Some think he’s too self-possessed, which keeps women
from getting close to him.” -DOA ultimate.
Now this quote really speaks to me. I feel like I can really relate. A major reason I dont have alot of close friends is because I’m way too self possesed. By self possesed I dont mean narcisim or bein “in love with myself” (although Pride and arrogance can be problems of mine at times) what I mean is the relentless pursuit of my own goals and perfection. My mind is almost always on how I can improve myself or evolve to better reach my goals. People who know me have called me intense and I can understand why they think this. My friend Salt would know best of all, everytime we have conversations about fighting I almost always bitch about how I feel like im getting too old too fast and I’m losing my chance at fighting. The truth is I have an obsession with time. Every second I’m not doing something to improve strength, speed, or mental quickness feels wasted to me. I have a vast array of goals that I must accomplish and I hate feeling like time is slipping between my fingers like sand. All this energy and time spent on myself makes dealing with other people hard. I’m such a loner by nature because theres so much shit going on inside my own head I need gratuitous amounts of solitary time to deal with myself. I often come off as cold and uncaring and thats a direct reslut of self possesion because to be honest 99% of people are irrelavant to my goals and unless my care for them superscedes these goals they get thrown on the back burner. So for those of you not on the backburner (you know who you are) thanks for dealing with me, I know it aint easy lol

“That’s football. You’re told either that you’re hurt or that you’re injured. There is no middle ground. If you are hurt, you can play. If you are injured, you can’t, and the line is whether you can walk and if you can put on a helmet and pads.””
And yet football is much more widely accepted in the mainstream than fighting, even though the brain trama is tenfold…trust me I have lapses in memory that span entire halves and quarters” —Malcom Gladwell
