Re: The UFC WW Dillema

He held back on Shields because he was facing a wrestler and had sustained a scratch on his eye- he was half-blind for most of that fight.

The Koschek fight was a lesson being taught. A superior...

Re: UFC 135 Rampage - Bones

I've NEVER seen a fighter so methodically destroy an opponent the way Bones did tonight. He made one of the best fighters in UFC history- and a guy still in his prime- look like a low-grade sparring...

Re: downtown Detroit

I admire this dude's compassion and tenacity, and I hope he succeeds, but I won't hold my breath.

Why?

I grew up in Windsor, right across the river. I'm still there fairly regularly,...

Re: GSP VS. Silva, GSP stand a chance?

If Jones beats Rampage as convincingly as he beat Rua, you could make a VERY strong case that he's pound-for-pound the best in the world. He's only 24, he's easily the most unorthodox fighter in the...

Re: Future of Crossfit gyms

Just out of curiosity, but, all these pages later, a question remains unanswered:

When did one require:

a) a box
b) lots of expensive equipment

to do high-intensity functional movements,...

Re: Congrats to Graham - Reebok Sponsorship

Hey, don't get me wrong- I GET that Crossfit is a for-profit business, and I'll give Glassman and the HQ crew mad crazy props for what is about to be the biggest single cash-in in the history of the...

Re: Vibrams Five Fingers

I've worn a pair for daily use in spring/summer/fall for the past 3 years.

If I can, its all I wear.

Re: Shane Carwin & Steroids

I don't think steroids are as rampant in hockey and as they are in other sports. Hockey has its own set of PEDs unique to the game, which continue to pop-up periodically.

Re: Shane Carwin & Steroids

When I was 23, I packed on roughly 60lbs, most of it being lean muscle. I went from approximately 175lbs of marathon roller-blader to 235lbs of big-lift bodybuilder/sports-conditioning enthusiast at...

Re: UFC 119 Picks

One of the worst cards I've seen in awhile.

If the fights weren't crap, the suspect judging ruined anything that had the decency to be good.

Re: Worst Craig's List equipment add ever

I have one- It works amazingly as a doorstop too; almost as though it was designed for it.

Plus, if you like, it can be worn on a chain around your neck for nights on the town. :rofl:
