    I know this is Swamp Gas but this will get more attention here than any other place here.

    Im not really into their highlights show, I think they try too hard to be funny.. However, I'm really liking the MMA coverage. It looks like we will finally get more free events and a lot more coverage of fights/fighters/match ups. Also, I can't stand Chael Sonnen as a fighter, but I actually like him as a commentator on there. He knows his stuff.

    Thoughts?

    BTW, UFC fight night is on tonight Bader vs Teixeira. Prelims start at 5.

    My thoughts are that those are the baddest guys and gals around. Anyone that wants to kick me beside the head, elbow me anywhere, choke me till I faint, or bend my elbow out of socket is someone to avoid.

    This should have stayed in Swamp gas. Not many people in the Pub even care about MMA like they would in the sports forums. Sometimes the politics of the board is annoying. Like 1 single thread not football related would take down the whole site..

    Yeah this is stupid. So what there's an MMA thread. If people don't care for it then go in one of a 100 threads and complain about the offense. Btw I love MMA and I love everything about Sonnen. He's great tv and great for the sport. And he's a heck of a good fighter too. I love all the free MMA I can get because I only purchase 2-3 PPV a year. Glad u started this thread it's nice to see.

    I think he might pull his punches when he felt he had his opponent down, may look over to the ref to ask that he stop the fight and then get clocked. Doesn't seem to be something I could see him doing.

    I recorded the fights because of school and Im watching it now. Literally as I read your post about Junior Hernandez, right as I'm reading his name, they announce him in the pre-fight.

    and as I typed this he gets choked out within like 30 seconds of the fight starting. lmao

    he said he was showboatin and should of went for the take down.

    I know that I wouldn't go toe to toe with him and I'm too stupid to realize that being punched in the face hurts.
