I never saw that fight, but the Aldo v Faber fight...holy shit.  Just pure destruction of Faber's legs.  I would have tapped out or faked an injury way sooner then endure those leg kicks.

I don't know if it's ever been posted in here but i was rereading mccorckle's hilarious review of Matt Hughes' book where he confesses his many crimes and embarrassments. Fuck, Hughes is such a worthless scumbag

Taking kicks to the thigh and calf, just 1 well placed on to the IT band can buckle your leg and have you limping for days / weeks. Puts into perspective the toughness of professional kickboxers who takes these kicks relentlessly.

Hahaha ya I've read that.  I went through and watched a few of the old Ultimate Fighter seasons about a year ago and I came across that halfway through the Hughes v Franklin season.  He came off as a prick on the show, but was fully sold when I read that.

In other news, with the weather starting to cool down I think I'm going to sign up at a no-gi Jiu-Jitsu club in the next few weeks.  I wrestled for a handful of years when I was a kid and think I'd enjoy it.

Anyone watching GGG Canelo 3? I don't wanna make a new thread specifically for boxing cause it's not very popular these days it seems...

And no wonder. What a garbage fight. Can't believe they were charging $80 for this. Glad I streamed it for free.

GGG won 2-3 rounds at most.

Ya, I watched it.  It's basically what I expected.  GGG is 40 years old now and was clearly just in it for the paycheck.

Joyce vs Parker should be a good scrap.

Not much else too exciting on the horizon barring Wilder Helenius, Bivol Ramirez and possibly finally Spence Crawford.

I've been following this dude for a few years now.  Saw him Mike Tyson someone in the first round on the Davis vs Santa Cruz card and have been a fan since.  He's got a real throwback, exciting style.  He's still pretty young, hopefully he gets some good matchups in the next 5 years cause that style is really hard to keep up in your 30's.

Cruz is kind of a dirty fighter though he always leads with his head and throws a lot of low blows. But he definitely brings it and is entertaining to watch. I was kind of unimpressed that he couldn't stop the corpse of Francisco Vargas but then he gave Tank a hell of a fight and arguably could have won or got a draw if it wasn't for boxing's always suspect/corrupt judging. I follow boxing pretty closely and try to keep up with all the top guys from like 108 lbs to the big heavy weights.
