I love how you guys speak Maonglish.

It's really bagus.
Well........ I don't, but proper Kiwis do. :smile:

It's Maori language week here at the moment actually, and everything around the office is covered with pieces of paper identifying the Maori name for everything. Which is ridiculous to me. Trying to teach us the Maori word for "photocopier" or "microwave", ffs. :smile:

When Machida was becoming Champion, you could hear the UFC guys like Rogan and Dana say that he looks like "a guy from fucking Mortal Kombat". In those backstage videos and such they would say that.
In official videos they always said that he looks like "a guy from StreetFighter, the video game"

Mario Sperry vs Murilo Rua is still one of the best fights of all time. Sperry continuing with a concussion and blown out knee from the first minute is something every fighter needs to be psychologically prepared for.

quite an intense sport, as it happens.

At some point I realised that I have a real hard time cheering for any fighter who has his own name tattooed across his back, to win pretty much any fight. I'm sure there are exceptions. But I'm hard pressed to think of any off the top of my head.

I think they should invent a fat-asses fighting championship.

basically, no one is allowed to have less than 20% body fat in any given weight class.

Hooker got his visa. Arrives in the US on Thursday, weighs in on Friday, fights on Saturday. I might put a sneaky fifty bucks against him. That's a pretty shitty fight week.

Rogan retirement coming soon. He's not going to be at the PPV this weekend - the second consecutive PPV he's missed.

Last time, it clashed with a comedy tour.

This time, he's going on a hunting trip.

Rogan misses a stacked card including the return of Nick Diaz, because he doesn't want to reschedule a hunting trip? He's gone inside a year I reckon.

You can't really just reschedule hunting trips. The seasons are short and if you hunt with other people (which he does) he'd have to cancel until next year.

I think the comedy had been rescheduled like 4 or 5 times over the course of 18 months.
