Mixed Martial Arts / Boxing Thread
 
Risto, You know a bit about Martial Arts what do you think of this fight from last night??

Its a ripper

Fedor is quite a bruiser isn't he!
Quite unimpressive really .... he is no boxer and he certainly is not a kicker.
Jeez those fights on the ground bore me.
I have no idea why he did not kick Rogers in the head when he had the chance (when Rogers was on the ground). I can only assume he really has not had much martial arts training.
Great king hit that finished him though.
But he fails the Tyson test ... Tyson would have eaten his children and his maznik.

His highlights are great. He's a beast.

Risto, That Tupajnca could knock out a horse, what a hit that was here is a slow motion replay of it.

To me he is the best ever mainly because of his ground work, his take down technique is as good as ever. Some of his submissions against his opponents have been excellent especially against the 7 foot 2 Korean Giant when he had him pinned on the ground only to win with the arm bar in the end.

Risto, I would have thought you'd be doing a bit of Jujitsu training which is basically fighting on the ground. Fedor is actually a Sambo champion a Russian Version of Mixed Martial Arts which is basically fighting without weapons.

Having said that Bret Rogers was undefeated prior to this fight and managed to beat alot of good fighters, he beat Andrei Arlovski in 30 seconds or so.

TM, How do you rate Fedor's performance against the mighty Brett Rogers?

Oh, this is much better.
He has excellent stability, a great punch and grappling skills.
Honestly, that first video was boring as hell. This certainly shows his capability.

Risto, If you like kicks then you cant go past the great Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic who has a monster of a left kick.

Danny Green Crushes Roy Jones Junior
 
I can't believe it, good on Danny Green, nearly everybody doubted that he had a chance to beat Roy Jones, who is a LEGEND of a fighter, but there you go. I just hope it wasn't a fix. And now I want to see a rematch between Green and Mundine.

[QUOTE]SYDNEY — Australian titleholder Danny Green scored a stunning first round victory over American great Roy Jones to retain his International Boxing Organisation cruiserweight world title here on Wednesday.

Green put down the eight-time world champion with a well-timed right hand which sent Jones to the canvas midway through the opening round and then pummelled the American legend with a flurry of blows against the ropes.

English referee Howard Foster called a halt to the fight at 2:02 into the first round.

It was the 36-year-old Green's first defence of the title he won with a fifth round TKO against Argentina's Julio Cesar Dominguez in Biloxi, Mississippi last August.

It was only the third time in his stellar 20-year fight career that Jones, 40, has been stopped in a fight following his earlier stoppages against Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson, both in 2004.

Jones was bidding to become the first boxer to win all five divisions between middleweight and heavyweight, but he was overwhelmed by Green's first-round onslaught.

Jones' record now stands at 54 wins (40 by knockout) with six losses in 60 bouts, while Green has won 28 (25 KOs) of his 31 fights since 2001.[/QUOTE]
I have seen some fights from Roy Jones where he literally comes close to tearing his opponent to pieces, he's around 40 now, so maybe the four year difference between them played a hand also.

Wow thats a shock mate i knew it was gonna be tough but Danny Green is a good fighter so is Vic Darcinian. I remember Roy Jones JR saying how Green wont go the distance but it proved otherwise.

SOM, What are your thoughts on a Danny Green - Anthony Mundine rematch? Mundine already beat him by a unanimous decision.

Soldier of Macedon 12-02-2009 08:38 AM

Prolet, I don't think Mundine is weaker or not as good as Green, I just think that Green should have won the first fight, he didn't do enough when he could've done more. And I am certain that a rematch will attract massive attention, Green should win and right the past wrong.

Prolet 12-02-2009 09:43 AM

SOM, Mundine has already got the win on him which is a big psychological advantage, Mundine has a strong tupajnca and he is very quick however nobody is doubting Danny Green's power and he can be very effective with some of his blows.

It will go down to the wire thats for sure, however if you had of tipped a Danny Green knockout against Roy Jones JR in the first round, nobody would have believed it. One good punch can change alot of things, Roy Jones JR found that our the hard way against the Green Machine.
