Better late than never! I've come across this before but didn't know it's reputation or anything about. The owner seems like a good dude and I like that it for the most part isn't censored

If this place survived the post-Trump liberal meltdown it can survive anything.

I have never heard a negative thing about you from respected mods.
Might have been before your time over there

I got temp banned for saying Chael was obviously roiding when he was on his run
They had a vote and I barely passed for a permanent ban
Probably because some guys didn't want a stain on Chael's name, but in time we all know Chael said he did "anything and everything he could get away with"

Kirk (he is a huge Captain Kirk fan) was actually nice to me and let me write some stupid article once about Rogan's Dragon Jeans when I was all fucked up on pain meds after surgery...wtf lol

I was banned I thought and then when I asked RickStorm over here he said I wasn't banned and still had an account so I resumes posting there as well as here...since then I think the Mods just know I shoot straight for better or for worse and they haven't had issues with me in 8+ years

Over here I legit liked all the mods, but e beefs and covid put me on opposite sides and it was rough for a moment...all good no hard feelings...never really been banned/frozen...just pissed some folks off because I believe in some conspiracies and thought covid lockdown was total BS

I like it here, some hardcore fans and some funny fucks...I still get a laugh and some occasional good insight. I lurk many forums but don't post on any MMA ones but the two being discussed.

New UG owners include TrainAlta.
Started out as Wimp to Warrior before the re-brand, based out of Platinum Extreme gym just north of the bridge in Sydney - I trained there for a fair while.
Awesome program founded by Richie Cranny (who is/was a member here) that takes your average person off the couch and puts them in the cage a couple of months later.

Very interesting
You were you training BJJ there?

Wimp to Warrior is a funny brand/pitch, the World needs more of that actually.

I really hope this place takes off. I honestly forget about it sometimes.
Question, why do you guys automatically change certain words/swears to be PC?

It's not to be PC. It was an inside joke that wasn't funny to everyone and has overstayed its welcome. I'm sure it can be reversed fairly easily, but Wild @Wild posts exclusively from an Apple watch and hasn't figured out how to tap into the Admin functions from that tiny screen yet.

I think it is just that one word
testing...
fucker
cunt
dick
pussy
gay
bitch

Yes it was some coding joke, and there are/were some funny coding jokes...no tech guy to change it currently...we just circumvent that code with creative alternatives, had kind of forgotten about it actually.

It’s such a cool program. They trained everything and had/have coaches for all aspects, it was based in the gym - but the gym had classes of everything too on a wider scale.
When Platinum folded the BJJ crew started up Training Grounds in St Leonards.
My BJJ journey started in ‘97
