Pearson ( MMA, UFC) will coach the fighters from the U.K. Pearson in June lost a second-round TKO to Cub Swanson. UFC Silva vs. Sonnen 2. Prime Silva was probably the best MMA fighter ever. He was a Striking Genius, A Submission Expert, a Good Wrestler and probably the best entertainer in the UFC. Mostly the build up to Silva/Sonnen II, I had been listening to JRE and Chael Sonnen was on it. After UFC I became a huge fan of the sport.

The bewildered Rousey had no answer for Holm's tactics and amounted no effective offense before getting knocked out early in the second round. Not only did he win all of his 29 bouts, but all of his victories by decision were unanimous i.
As the name implies, they involve kicking a downed opponent's head like a soccer ball, which can lead to either broken facial bones, or, the main reason it was outlawed, severe neck injuries from the whiplash. In major promotions, it is much more rare because it is easily countered, but fighters who are able to use it effectively are greatly feared.
Japanese promotions love these match-ups, often pitting small Japanese fighters against opponents weighing lb. Usually the "Goliaths" fare quite poorly due to their often dubious credentials as fighters. An "Inside The Octagon" mini-show that reunited them Sadollah was a member of Griffin's team on the seventh season of ''The Ultimate Fighter'' showcased both men snarking their way through the entire segment.
I'm uh I gotta go for the wrestling and hold and just hope the ref keeps us there. Y'all don't believe nothing I say. It's pitiful. The style is sometimes called the "Stockton Slap". All "undefeatable" fighters are just one mistake away from getting knocked out or tapping out, or at the very least losing their "invincible aura". Sakuraba was later dubbed "The Gracie Hunter". He then proceeded to shock everyone by showcasing incredible speed and striking skills in his first three fights, culminating in an second knockout of highly-regarded Caol Uno and getting a shot at the title held by Jens Pulver, with people acting as though he'd already won.
Pulver, however, had other ideas, and after losing the first two rounds of their fight, used his own speed, boxing, and wrestling to win a majority decision. In his first title defense, he faced Matt Serra, a journeyman whose career had fizzled out before winning a "comeback" title shot through the ''The Ultimate Fighter'' reality show. Everyone expected GSP to run straight through Serra. Early in the first round, however, Serra landed a hard punch just behind St-Pierre's ear, taking away his equilibrium.
Serra swarmed in with more punches until the overwhelmed GSP was forced to tap out due to strikes. It remains the biggest upset in UFC history. Shogun fight. Although Lyoto Machida was considered an unbeatable enigma coming into his first title defense as light heavyweight champion, many spectators and commentators gave the decision victory to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.
The judges, however, awarded Machida a controversial unanimous decision victory. Machida's air of invincibility had nonetheless been cracked, and he fittingly lost the rematch to Shogun by first-round KO. Then came Frank Edgar, a 6 to 1 underdog who was thought to lack a single competitive advantage over the champion.
Edgar proceeded to pepper Penn with punches and frustrate him with movement and feints to take a somewhat unpopular unanimous decision victory. In their rematch, Edgar took a decisive decision victory. However, when he to knocked down the underdog Fabricio Werdum and rushed in for the kill, Werdum took advantage of Fedor's overconfidence and snapped on a triangle choke with armbar -- ending a 9.
Having spent the majority of the first round being controlled on the ground by wrestling-based Chris Weidman, Silva began his standard practice of dodging Weidman's blows and keeping his hands down. Weidman took advantage of a hole in Silva's defense; instead of following a right straight with a left hook, Weidman threw a right backfist, causing Silva to lean directly into the follow-up left hook.
He dropped and was finished in seconds. This ended Silva's record-setting 6. After winning the Strikeforce championship, she defended her unified title seven times. When she was scheduled to fight Holly Holm, her last four challengers had lasted a total of seconds against her.
In spite of being a to-1 favorite against Holm, Rousey was thoroughly dismantled by Holm's striking and eventually knocked unconscious in the second round. Nunes proceeded to pummel her and score a knockout less than a minute into the fight. He decided to move up to light heavyweight to capture a second title, only to be defeated by the aging polish Champion Jan Blachowicz, who surprisingly outclassed Adesanya thoroughly for 25 minutes by outstriking him for 3 rounds, then dominating him on the ground for the next 2.
Adesanya took it in stride and returned to middleweight to defend his title not long after. Former opponents have sometimes invited each other to train at each other's camps. Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar are frequently brought out to make appearances together, and though many thought he was joking about the possibility, Bonnar named his son Griffin Bonnar.
His wins against Cung Le and Benji Radach both came late in the last round on one big punch, after having been dominated the rest of the fight. As an MMA legend with a reputation for winning against [[DavidVersusGoliath daunting odds]], exciting comeback wins, and being a national hero of Japan, referees sometimes give Sakuraba a bit ''too'' much leeway in letting him continue fighting. However, the referee let the match continue and Sakuraba won both fights.
Despite knowing that their age and lack of training would make them easy prey, they fought tirelessly [[HopelessWar against clearly superior fighters]] to live up their [[JapaneseSpirit fighting spirit]], and although they had little success, they were a vital point in the development of the modern mixed martial arts. Mike Brown, for the WEC featherweight championship. There's been more than one fight where a fighter suffered a broken hand, but Faber on the other hand unfortunate pun lost BOTH of his hands While he still lost by unanimous decision, it's pretty much American MMA's biggest known case of this.
Shields and his cornerman Gilbert Melendez pushed Miller away, but their infamously pugnacious teammate Nick Diaz threw a punch, prompting Shields' entire team to swarm Miller and pummel him with punches and soccer kicks. The only fighter to knock Ferguson out is Justin Gaethje, and Ferguson was still standing when it happened. Over the course of several years, it evolved into its more modern form of an MMA combat sport promotion.
The latter looked basically professional wrestling if the matches weren't scripted: fighters wore colored thigh-high boots, fought in a three-roped pro wrestling-style ring, fought bareknuckle and had a ruleset with open palm strikes to the head only, no ground-and-pound and wrestlers yes, ''wrestlers'', they were officially called "Hybrid Wrestlers" could hold the ropes to break submissions.
After entering the UFC, he began to talk more trash and quickly transitioned into the larger-than-life braggart and quipster we know today. After an impressive stoppage of Paul Daley, his only reaction was to speculate that Strikeforce was trying to get rid of him and would likely punish him for some imagined grievance. After dominating the legendary BJ Penn into semi-retirement and earning more than a quarter-million dollar paycheck, Diaz spent the post-fight interview complaining about his [[WrestlingDoesntPay living conditions]], [[BullyingADragon being forced to fight BJ Penn]] and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking his gloves not fitting]].
Once he got more experience and increased his toughness, the name got shortened to "The Goat", which [[ArtifactTitle has no meaning]]. He found the nickname embarrassing, but eventually embraced it. The dark age ended with a long period of rule standardisation and popularity growth. However, Sakuraba quickly distinguished himself as one of the few pro wrestlers who could actually fight.
He quickly became Pride's biggest Japanese star. However, in he stepped in on short notice as a substitute to fight for the title against Luke Rockhold and pulled one of the biggest upsets in MMA history. Despite begin a submission machine, he was never able to capture a title, losing both fights for the middleweight title and walterweight title. He started as a massively popular [[ProfessionalWrestling professional wrestler]] in the [[WorkedShoot shoot wrestling era]], but was forced to venture into MMA due to its increasing influence in Japan.
He was easily crushed, but the promotion tried to keep milking his popularity by giving him worked fights pushing the narrative that he was Japan's top fighter. His actual MMA career was short and almost devoid of wins. Examples that are not officially adopted are often mocking names or simple abbreviations of the fighter's name. Sometimes a fighter's signature move receives a fan nickname. Later in his career, as his chin began to deteriorate, he adopted a more defensive style, being very careful to protect his chin and pick his shots.
Fans responded by nicknaming this incarnation of Alistair Overeem as "Econoreem". Akiyama stated that the name embarrassed him at first, but he now likes it. To commemorate UFC , fans convinced Buffer to do a special "Buffer Three-Sixty" when announcing the title fight, in which Buffer jumped up and spun in a complete circle.
It's not particularly affectionate. Kimbo Slice also made a name for himself in backyard boxing matches before transitioning into a professional MMA fighter. They were notable to blur the line between competition and pure fight club by holding their "events" in gyms, having nothing resembling official sanction, having their events in secret locations and some of their early events weren't even in a cage or ring, but in a training mat.
They ended up inspiring a TV series made by Fox Brazil. Don't tell that to an MMA fighter, though. Some fighters don't have a sense of humor about it, but others joke, "It's not gay if there's no eye contact. But it'll be okay, 'cause it'll be in your mouth. Dana White never attempted to go by Dan or Dane, and no one makes fun of it.
More infamously, he took part in a money laundering scheme as a real estate agent while also fighting professionally. Outside of the cage, he has been consistently described by all the fans that have met him as kind, personable and quite possibly the nicest fighter to have been in the UFC. He's almost twice the height of the Pygmies and about three times the weight. If you are reading this in the future, please check the trope page to make sure your example fits the current definition.
They featured a dynamic right out from pro wrestling, with a legal fighter inside the ring and another one waiting outside, with the teammates switching places upon a legal tag. If it was not bizarre enough, the victory system was of the elimination match kind, which means that after the first fighter was eliminated, the other member of his team was obliged to face both opponents in back-to-back rounds.
He racked up a number of impressive kickboxing wins with his sheer size and power. However, Sapp is also infamous for his glass chin, laughably little technique, and especially for his lack of heart. Out of all of the 23 fights in his record, only ''five'' went past round one. He either completely destroys his opponent or gets destroyed in the first round. He was the first man to ever knock out Mark Hunt, who was famous for shrugging off career-ending strikes to his presumably [[MadeOfIron granite-filled head]].
More saliently, his grappling skills are pure garbage. For MMA professionals, fighting Manhoef can either end in Melvin decapitating you with a punch, or with him meekly tapping out 15 seconds after the fight hits the mat. Stand with them and they're likely to hurt you, take them down and they'll play you the three-tap symphony. Veteran fighters who still possess a lot of offensive skill can eventually become glass cannons due to brittle chins brought about by age.
Chuck Liddell is perhaps the highest-profile example. After a long reign as the UFC's most marketable champion, he suffered a string of knockout losses that put an end to his career. He has been knocked out in several fights that he was winning with his excellent speed and boxing technique. Arlovski himself insists that his chin is strong, using the hard shots he took from Travis Fulton as evidence. He tended to wince away and crumple after a solid shot.
When he lost most of his ungodly speed due to a [[GameBreakingInjury game-breaking illness]], he had to get out of the sport for good. Today, MMA has generally homogenized into a core set of simple, effective moves. Josh Thomson ended with both famously using exotic techniques -- a flying kick and a spinning backfist -- against each other simultaneously. He claims he doesn't use them to be flashy, they're just part of his style His coaches completely shot this down, so he practiced the technique privately with his wife.
He won the final WEC Lightweight Championship by running up the side of the cage, springing off, and delivering a flying kick to the face of Benson Henderson, flooring him. Combined with his high level ringcraft, he puts unrelenting pressure upon his opponents and immobilizes them until his straight left knocks them out. The first few UFC events were billed as "style versus style" events, with each fighter representing a specific martial art.
Their scheme worked and helped BJJ schools far and wide. Ironically, as fighters began to incorporate grappling techniques into their skill sets, it became clear that no single style held all the answers, necessitating a new hybrid style that was ultimately dubbed "mixed martial arts. He amassed an impressive record before his first loss to none other then Justin Gaethje. He still went on to submit Craig Pittman the same night. It's worth noting that while Nakai is a lightweight, both the opponents he beat in the tournament were very big heavyweights.
While he retired after the tournament, he still competed in submission grappling for several years afterwards. Both conditions are seriously detrimental to an athlete's performance and overall health, and yet Struve refused to stop fighting. He still went on to take the UFC Middleweight belt, with only his left eye functioning properly and would later replace his right eye with a glass prosthetic.
It caught up with him. His career is peppered with flashes of brilliance as well as disappointment. I gotta start training or those guys will start catching up with me. Feeling he had failed him, Anjo sank into a depression and [[DrivenToSuicide even considered suicide]], but ultimately learnt to [[GallowsHumor endure his sorrows with laughs]] and formed the Golden Cups comedy stable in UWF International.
Japanese media even developed the running joke that Yamamoto had managed to pull a real DDT. Neither fighter was able to continue, so the fight was ruled a No Contest. If that wasn't enough, Sakuraba faced a second opponent on the same night, Igor Vovchanchyn, a feared striker who was much heavier and better rested.
Sakuraba went the distance for another 20 minutes, fighting Vovchanchyn to a draw, before Sakuraba declined to enter a tie-breaker round. Similarly, Pancrase used to call its workers "hybrid wrestlers" while Shooto called its [[ShapedLikeItself simply as "Shootists"]]. This is sometimes taken UpToEleven in some minor MMA leagues, in which rear naked chokes are called "sleeper holds" and kimuras "double wrist locks". He's given up correcting people. A typical GSP bout will have the champion thoroughly outclass his opponent for five rounds without ever being put in danger and without coming very close to finishing his opponent either.
His wins were so dominant that the fights weren't particularly noteworthy or exciting. When he eventually lost his title to Henry Cejudo, some commentators thought that it would bring some life back into the flyweight division and help Johnson's career long-term.
He was the first fighter to defeat Daniel Cormier, and did so a second time before the decision was reversed after Jones tested positive for performance enhancers. With the only blemishes being a self-inflicted loss in a fight he thoroughly dominated and problems with illegal substances, Jones has proven himself essentially unbeatable for his entire career. Almost every single fight he was in saw Khabib inevitably take his opponents to the ground with his masterful wrestling and absolutely smash their face into the canvas.
You could expect to hear "He's getting mauled" or some variation on commentary every time the cage door shut behind Nurmagomedov. His behavior landed him a hosting gig on MTV's ''Bully Beatdown'' as well as his share of controversies over the years. Mauro Renallo regularly unleashes a torrent of cheesy, pre-scripted witticisms, while UFC commentator Mike Goldberg can always be counted on to bellow hyperbolic analysis at maximum volume.
Michael "The Voice" Schiavello manages to do both at once. Chris Weidman famously defeated Anderson Silva after Silva gruesomely snapped his own shin on a leg kick. Weidman would then do the exact same thing to himself years later in a fight with Uriah Hall. Ji responded by knocking her out a few seconds later. However, by the s they started to change the rules to approach closer to other MMA promotions, by the s they adopted the Unified Rules and in they exchanged their iconic ring for a sided cage.
They were strikers who used their wrestling backgrounds to defend takedowns, forcing grapplers into boxing match, essentially [[HoistByHisOwnPetard using grapplers' previous tactic against them]] and paving the way for the future striking aces like Mirko Cro Cop and Anderson Silva. Seanbaby says that Lesnar in particular is prone to this, since "He is pounds of muscle, and judging by the way he darts around, I don't think mass and inertia were properly explained to him.
It's not surprising when you look at his arms, which seem to be transplants from a welterweight. However, all of these fighters have been knocked out due to strikes, leading to the inevitable conclusion that it's better to ''not get hit'' in the first place. One reporter asked future opponent James Thompson whether it was fair that Thompson had to fight both Kimbo Slice ''and'' his beard at the same time. When he died, thousands of fans and fighters spent a month growing a beard in tribute including Joe Rogan.
In addition, he sports fangs on his mouthpiece and frequently sticks his tongue out like a dog. Sometimes they simply bawl out of sadness for losing, but other times it's a more respectable, manly sort of crying. One even cried on his way ''to'' the Octagon. The second was the legendary match against Sakuraba, which was modified to have unlimited rounds went for ''1 hour and 30 minutes'', which ended by Royce's cornerman throwing the towel after he was unable to walk after fracturing his legs due accumulated leg kicks.
Ironically, GSP's striking became famously based on his head-jab, while Kyokushin competition does not include punches to the head. Sakuraba and Daijiro Matsui finally reverted the trend by focusing in wrestling and anti-game tactics. Throughout his career, his game was very well-rounded, but without exceptional skill in any area. Scott Morris in UFC 2 got a victory in the first round with a Guillotine Choke but in the second round was thrown into the ground by Patrick Smith, who violently rained ground-and-pound strikes on him.
He started his own clothing line called "Xtreme Couture. A reference to his statement to Matt Hughes in the Octagon. Since then, "going for a single leg" became something of a joke term to being knocked out. In general, this is a ill-fated strategy in modern MMA. However, he had little success, mostly due to his lack of training. His large size didn't save him from a loss-filled record. In his only win, he ''smothered'' shooter Tatsuo Nakano with his enormous belly.
Even before, Igor Vovchancyn and Mirko Cro Cop used to receive the same treatment as ruthless, seemingly invincible fighters from the Eastern bloc. Commentators have expressed bafflement at this. Manvel Gamburyen was forced to change his nickname from "Pitbull" to "Anvil" because there were [[OneSteveLimit too many fighters already using the nickname]].
This served the Gracies greatly in a pratical reason as it allowed fighters from different martial arts to fight and they could use their trademark submission style that other martial artists could cosider it "unfair", while for marketing reasons they could prove as unbeatable in an actual street fight with no rules.
It was discarded as a name both because it both sounded too extreme and because that with the new rules, some holds were indeed barred. Came back to bite him hard when Chris Weidman knocked him out cold [[SubvertedTrope as Silva tried this tactic against him]]. He also could be considered one of the first mixed martial artists by creating his famous ''Gracie Challenges'' which he or his family would challenge other martial artists in cross-style matches to promote his own ''Jiu Jitsu'' style, and he would later promote ''Vale Tudo'' in Brazil with the same objective.
While he has directly trained few of the most known i. Also, combat wrestling founder Noriaki Kiguchi worked in his gym, and shootboxing pioneer Caesar Takeshi learned grappling from Sayama as well. The Tale of the Tape chanting remained long after the gladiator theme was ditched.
Since most fighters know this, however, and train to protect the liver, it's rare. Additionally, the UFC formerly allowed fighters to wear shoes if they chose, but doing so made it illegal for that fighter to utilize kicks of any kind during the fight in question. When his fighter Carlos Condit was down two rounds and heading into the final third, however, Jackson began screaming and swearing at Condit to get aggressive and knock his opponent out.
Condit responded and got the TKO just 7 seconds from the final bell. Later, Jackson calmly explained that he thought Condit needed that kind of encouragement. After his successful title defense against Nate Diaz, it was revealed that he often ''fights with a toothpick hidden in his mouth''.
The most practical "fight gear" worn in LFC cages tends to be the "ring gear" of the pro wrestlers they sometimes contract. He claimed it was because he had lost a bet. The mankini left Hallman momentarily exposed mid-fight, and the irate Dana White awarded his opponent a special bonus for finishing Hallman early and getting him off television.
He was one of the very first true mixed martial artists, Ruas started with Muay Thai but soon expanded his training Luta Livre submission grappling and became equally skilled in both, he had his first Vale Tudo bout in where he had a draw with BJJ representative Fernando Pinduka. Even before the first UFC event, he already publicy defended cross-training in many martial arts to be a truly complete fighter, and was billed representing "Vale Tudo", just as modern MMA fighters are announced as "a mixed martial artist".
His legendary UFC 7 performance saw him both submitting Larry Cureton with a heel hook and winning the finals against giant Paul Varelans by stomping his feet every time he was clinched against the cage, and brutally and systemically kicking his leg multiple times for thirteen minutes until Varelans was unable to walk and dropped into the ground, both tactics which become mainstreams decades after. Why he isn't more well-remembered? Well, in his first UFC appearence he was already 34, the period most fighters are already past their prime he started his fighting career, and he also was based mostly in Brazil, which difficulted communications, transport and exposure.
He was the first kickboxer to have sustained success against grappling artists in the mid 90s, was universally feared as a striker in the late 90s, and got a scary number of victories over established names. His body shape and style are both almost identical to that of legendary former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, and in fact he trained Silva at one point and had a real life enmity with him.
Almost no one knows who "Pele" is not the least because his [[NamesTheSame name]] makes him ThePeteBest in another way , while Silva has had much more success and is regarded as one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world. He was one of the first to get sponsor money by winning tournaments. All of this happened before MMA went mainstream. He did became famous recently for his over-the-top and hilariously translations for the fighters he manages in the UFC. However, when UFC really hit the mainstream Pulver's suspect chin and defensive grappling were used against him multiple times, culminating in a two-year, six-fight losing streak.
Unfortunately, most modern fans only remember the tail end of his career, which has consisted of him getting punched out or submitted. However, Sato's lack of exposure occasioned by his refusal to fight outside of Shooto until he gained a title made him almost unknown to western audiences. Names like Matt Lindland and Ricardo Morais were infamous for not bathing for days before a fight so that they would nauseate their opponents in grappling exchanges with their miasma, and Minotauro Nogueira once accused the Russian Top Team of doing the same.
Unfortunately for him, when he met [[WorthyOpponent Rickson Gracie]] at the finals, he was too battered to give his best. He had a couple of victories against Gracies by imitating Saku. Very much like Saku, Matsui was known for his heart and creativity, as well as will to fight whoever Pride put in front of him.
It is very tough to time correctly, but if a fighter is hit cleanly by one, chances are they aren't getting back up. It's not uncommon to see him start the first round with a large welt on his left pectoral muscle. In Japan, however, this assumption is quite correct, as indigenous MMA came directly from pro wrestling becoming real. This is generally considered to be, naturally, a poor tactic. It's become HarsherInHindsight due to his onset of pugilistic dementia.
He has a bird tattoo on his shoulder. Mezger's fight with Kazushi Sakuraba was ruled a draw, requiring both fighters to go to a tiebreaker round. Shamrock believed that a draw was not possible under the rules and that Mezger had clearly won the fight, so he prohibited him from entering the tiebreaker in protest, resulting in a forfeit loss. He later became the first UFC featherweight champion.
When he was seven he was diagnosed with heart murmur and a heel disease that prevented him to even walk for a few years, preventing him for following soccer. When he started Jiu-Jitsu he asked the professor for a "scholarship" and had to support himself by selling snacks, he lost his freind which introduced him to BJJ in a shootout when he was When he had his MMA debut, he chose the nickname "Do Bronx", in a free translation, "from the hood", to remeber his roots and struggle.
When he won the lightweight belt exclaimed "The Favela Won! He was born at a poor family in rural Cameroon, his parents divorced, he was constantly approached by street gangs, had almost no food and had to work grueling shifts in a sand mine. Tired of his life, Ngannou went to try his luck at Europe and persue his dream of professional boxing. He crossed the Sahara desert on a bike, was apprehended in Marrocco, he was jailed for two months in Spain for illegally crossing the border and when he finally arrived France, he had no money, friends or home and had to live in the streets.
Rich Franklin honoring the Cincinnati Bengals , Seth Petruzelli sprayed into his hair and John Maguire a self-described "pink belt" are examples. Frank Trigg, however, usually wore colorful shades, which inspired his nickname "Twinkle Toes". Akiyama listened to the entire speech with surprising humility. Ironically, the fight was later ruled a No Contest due to Misaki's illegal soccer kick.
But, while I was fighting you tonight, your heart reached me. After tonight, you should fight with sincerity and a deep apology in mind for all that people. Will you accept? Judo is the best! Everybody, Japanese people are strong! He had 30 fights, lost half of them. Ain't killed a motherfucker yet. It's just an abbreviation of his name, but it stuck, and now he's rarely referred to anything but it. The Korean Zombie". Three years after, during a Ultimate Fighting Championship event in Japan, Anjo approached Maeda through the crowd and knocked him out with a sucker punch.
The cycle would more or less play out like this: the Gracies would send someone to try and defeat Sakuraba, Sakuraba would beat them, the Gracies swore revenge, rinse and repeat. His first attempt in only ended in him being brutalized even worse by Silva, he finally got his revenge 4 years later in and once more in , evening their score. This, coupled with his broken English, created some issues for him when he appeared to say "What happened, America?
No for gay Jesus! Romero later clarified that he'd said "No ''forget'' Jesus", and denied knowing anything about the gay marriage issue. The "Black Dragon" entered UFC 4 at ''age 51'', he was able to fight Royce Gracie for four minutes before he was put in a rear-naked choke. He never competed again but still holds the record as the oldest UFC fighter.
In , at the age of 43, he became the first UFC fighter to win fights in 4 different decades the 90s, the s, the s and the s. As the two top gyms in Brazil, they started to export their fighters to Japan where they met at PRIDE, supposedly the rivalry started in a discussion-turned-brawl between Ricardo Arona and Wanderlei Silva at the Tokyo Hilton hotel and it just escalated from there: every match where fighters from both camps met were wars filled with hatred, their corners hurled insults at eachother and security had to be careful to stop any potential brawls.
In order to differentiate from their competitor the UFC , each IFL card was a showdown between two MMA dojos of at least three fighters, each fighter fighting one match against another in the opposing dojos. The promoters were hoping this would create great rivalries but sadly the IFL went under very soon. Or so it is said. It is known that he makes a free use of the shinai, just like the aforementioned Sayama, and that training with him is a hell. However, he produces extremely tough athletes, and his most famous trainee, Luiz Virgilio de Castro, is a seven times national champion and possibly the only man to school Rickson Gracie in a sparring match.
He softened his image somewhat after his religious reawakening, but revived it when feuding with Muhammad "King Mo" Lawal and "Sugar" Rashad Evans, both rival African-American wrestlers. Making his goofy and jovial personality outside of competition even more disarming. Preux, who made great use of it in several fights. The kick has been since christened "the Showtime kick".
Even her nickname "Bate-Estaca" "Piledriver" is the portuguese term for body slams. Stephan Bonnar, during the finale of ''The Ultimate Fighter'', season 1. Because the fight was more or less a sloppy stand-up brawl, many keyboard warriors will look down their noses on fans who consider it to be one of the "best" MMA fights.
The latter gets extra points for the being the organization's very last fight. Sometimes this is warranted, such as when an opponent clearly cheats or the referee makes an incorrect call; other times, it's just a fighter's ego refusing to accept defeat. O'Malley went on several tirades on how he didn't lose and he was still undefeated. Pierre of cheating on so many different ways after their fight that it went from serious to comical, throwing around allegations like St.
Pierre having a spy in his training camp, poisoning his IV drip and having missed weight only to have the commission cover it up. Pierre went on to "admit" to it all in an interview with Joe Rogan, as well as adding that he also had aliens [[DeadpanSnarker blast him with gamma rays to become the Hulk because he was scared of Diaz]].
Before him, Bazigit Atajev another sanshou practitioner was known to land spinning wheel kicks at will. Worse yet, [[UnfortunateImplications he got it from his dad]]. Over a year after the story broke, people are still joking about it. Maia squeezed and cranked Story's head until his nose started leaking copious amounts of blood due to his nose veins popping from the pressure. In fact, this was the very origin of the Japanese MMA. Nelson is actually an undersized heavyweight and has come under increasing pressure to drop the weight and move to the light heavyweight division.
He retired from MMA with a perfect record and as the Bellator heavyweight champion. On rare occasions it rubs off on his partner Joe Rogan. The best and top champions are fighters who are equally parts skilled, strong and fast, while fighters who excel only in strength [[WeakButSkilled or only in skill! During the fight, he repeatedly dropped his hands, chin up, without regard for Silva's striking. He ended up on the receiving end of a shocking TKO in the third round after arguably winning the previous two.
When Weidman connected with a glancing blow, Silva theatrically mimed being hurt. Weidman responded with more punches, landing flush on Silva's chin and ending the middleweight champ's record-breaking win streak. Velasquez was knocked out in 64 seconds, making the entire hour devoted to 1 minute of fighting.
After a few minutes in which Rockhold showcased his superior kickboxing, Bisping got the timing right and nailed Rockhold with a perfect overhand left which put the champion on the canvas. Bisping swarmed the dazed Rockhold, dropping him again, and then knocking him completely out with a vicious right against the cage just as the referee moved in to stop the fight. During the lead-up to his fight with Daniel Cormier, however, it became clear that Jones was far more caustic and bullying than he presented to the public, most famously when he was caught sneering, "You there, pussy?
Since then, Jones has become one of the most vainglorious and toxic trash-talkers in the sport, and his frequent run-ins with the law only exascerbate the matter. Commentator Michael Schiavello noted this during one of his interviews with Fedor and called it "terrifying.
This has caused some friction between fighters and the organizations that employ them when camp loyalty interferes with matchmaking. A frustrated and hurt Cerrone left to start his own gym, and when the fight with Perry finally happened, he utterly dominated the younger fighter before yelling several post-fight insults at Winklejohn. It's called ''Mixed'' Martial Arts for a reason.
Sokoudjou knocked Nogueira out with a punch in 23 seconds. Though a training partner of Kazushi Sakuraba, Matsui was little more than a PRIDE jobber, and everyone thought him to lose against Pele, who was a vale tudo legend and a much better fighter in every field. However, in a mind-bending exhibition of heart, Daijiro countered Pele's offensive through all kinds of improvised techniques and overpowered him with ground and pound, which won the decision for him.
Poor Pele probably never see it coming. Virtually knowing nothing of MMA or fighting, he managed to defeat two expert grapplers from both the luta livre and the Brazilian jiu-jitsu camps solely thanks to his striking expertise and ended winning the tournament. He had to tie the then-standing record of 8 consecutive victories before being granted a title shot in In , as the 9 ranked welterweight in the organization and considered by many the third greatest to ever compete in the division , he was unexpectedly cut after going in his previous four fights.
While the spelling borders on self-parody, it's actually not that hard to say: "Kris-Toff Soh-Shin-Skee. It's close to Yoanna Yen-Jay-Chick. She often goes by "Joanna Champion" to make it easier for fans. They are often paired with up-and-coming prospects as a test of mettle. Beating a gatekeeper will add to a prospect's reputation and build their case for a title shot. He would defeat opponents that were double his size and sometimes [[StrongAndSkilled just as skilled]] such as Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn.
Not out of a desire to prove himself, but because of their close relationship, to the point that after Abdulmanap's passing, due to complications during his recovery from COVID, Khabib decided to retire from the sport in order to be with his family. Japanese promotions were fairly notorious for manipulating the results to establish storylines and build up stars.
Often this was done through lopsided matchmaking and questionable judging, but there were also outright works. Pancrase has been accused of regularly working fights. Vale himself copyrighted the term and MMA legend. His actual record is a pitiful Coleman did a particularly poor job of selling the work when he jumped ''into'' Takada's guard and allowed himself to be heelhooked. As Japanese pro wrestlers began finding some success in MMA, the focus shifted more toward shoot fights.
The second guillotine is still officially the fastest UFC submission on record. However, many times, after going three or five hard rounds against another human being trying to beat you into unconsciousness, the two fighters appear to gain a measure of respect for one another by the end of the bout, and will shake hands and thank each other for the contest.
Dropkicks, chops and triangle choke-countering powerbombs and piledrivers are the most common ones, but the sport has also seen German suplexes, abdominal stretches, airplane spins, superkicks, elbow drops and even diving attacks. Some have even entered the general vocabulary of wrestling, used by performers without any specific connection to MMA, including the Kimura lock, triangle choke, and rear naked choke, to name a few.

Mixed martial arts is a combat sport that incorporates techniques from a wide range of other combat sports and martial arts styles, with the three basic pillars of the sport being striking, wrestling and submission grappling. Though similar sports have existed at certain points throughout history, most notably in the Greek Olympic sport Pankration, modern mixed martial arts began in Brazil.
The Gracies entered their youngest and smallest adult member into the tournament, year-old Royce, to prove that BJJ techniques could overpower physically stronger opponents. And that came true -- which would've been miraculous in itself, but Silva's 5th-round, Hail Mary triangle choke injected that once-in-a-lifetime mystique to the already simmering rivalry, provided one of the most exhilarating comebacks in MMA history and set the perfect stage for a marquee rematch.
Griffin vs. Ortiz Le vs. Cote Kim vs. Maia Mendes vs. McKenzie Menjivar vs. Easton FX Prelims. The vast majority of Sonnen's scathing pre-fight proclamations were written off as clever gamesmanship and cogent fight-hyping; that is, until he sauntered out of his corner and torpedoed Silva with a blistering left hand and flattened him with his trademark double leg.
Sonnen's remorseless takedown frenzy recurred at the start of each round. The fight lasted 23 minutes and 10 seconds -- Sonnen's domination throughout the 23 minutes was inevitably trumped by the 10 seconds or so it took Silva to lace up the triangle, but those slanted ratios only bolster the salivating appeal of a do-over.
The question remains: was Silva, who normally sashays fluidly around the octagon with unparalleled footwork, just having an off-night? Or could his flat-footed sluggishness and sub-par takedown defense be attributed to Sonnen, his arch-nemesis, flat-out having his number? Footwork and timing are Anderson Silva's secret weapons.
He's probably the most precise marksman in the game but the key to his striking success is the way he launches missiles from unforeseen and unpredictable angles, which is set up by his uncanny footwork. His takedown defense is rock-solid but, again, his anticipation and nimble footwork is what typically prevents opponents from getting deep on his hips and his underhooks and defensive clinch just seal the deal on shucking them off.
This is what was noticeably amiss at UFC In fact, it was Sonnen who shined with his timing and footwork -- he flashed out half-hearted low kicks and push kicks that caused Silva to either check them or take a step back, calculated for Silva's distance and sprang for explosive double-leg takedowns. When he wasn't using that simple ruse, Sonnen relied on the signature Team Quest approach for securing takedowns -- employed frequently by Matt Lindland , Dan Henderson and the great Randy Couture -- which is to telegraph a giant haymaker, then change levels and and follow directly in its wake.
And that's how Sonnen, who covers an obscene amount of ground on his shots, penetrates deep into the pocket and runs the pipe well, capitalized on his high-level wrestling to contain the champion. Sensational conspiracy theories sprang up, with many speculating that Silva's performance was so uncharacteristically shoddy that he intentionally allowed the takedowns in order to finish with a submission as payback for Sonnen's disparagement of Silva's BJJ black-belt credentials.
Normally, that would be a foolishly desperate line of thinking, but Silva's motion and reaction time hasn't been that bad since he fought Travis Lutter whilst in dire need of knee surgery. It was just weird -- either Sonnen over-performed or Silva under-performed Regardless, the chess match of footwork, distance and timing will dictate this encounter as well. If Silva shows the same level of lackadaisical defensive motion, there's no reason to expect him to fare better, but recreating the miracle submission to save his skin at the last minute is a different story.
Therefore, Silva has a much longer list of adjustments to make whereas Sonnen just needs to do the same thing minus the fight-costing blunder at the end.

Not this time. With a minute left in the first round, Sonnen slides through Silva's half-guard and into full mount. He lays flat and spreads his weight out on Silva while working short elbows and palm strikes. There's the horn, and Silva jogs back to his corner.
MMA Fighting scores it for Sonnen. Round 2: Again Sonnen charges straight across the cage and gets right in Silva's face. Silva tries to dance away, but Sonnen clinches him up against the fence. Silva stalls out the takedown attempt and then pushes Sonnen back before stinging him with a right hand. Sonnen replies with a decent right of his own, but Silva seems unbothered.
Spinning backfist by Sonnen, and Silva ducks under it to let him go tumbling into the fence and onto his butt. Silva stands over him, then launches what appears to be an illegal knee to the head of a downed Sonnen. Lavigne has nothing to say about it, and Silva continues pounding on Sonnen with punches as he covers up.
