UFC 100 time, oh yeah!!
Oyst, inom naman tayo this Sunday during UFC 100! Anyone can go, I guess. Malamang konti lang though kasi halos wala nang nagbabasa ng LJ haha. But yeah, let’s go!
Drinks are on me! Ulul haha! Ay pwede pero purus the bar, premium gin, maybe one absolut vodka. Mmmmm. But bring drinks, and food. And women to counter the cavemen testosterone that will be in the air.
And hey, if you’re gonna come, huh huh I said come, u better not watch the initial showing in the morning! Para exciting pa rin!
And let’s bet! Using one pot! It would be cool if we could bet on all the matches but some aren’t even gonna be shown. Let’s just bet on the three main cards! What’s gonna happen is, we’re gonna choose the fighter who’ll win (2 points), plus the round he won in (1 point), plus the way he won (1 point). And whoever has the most points, gets the pot! Uh huh uh huh, good idea right? They’re doing something like this on the MMA site I follow. So, for example, these are my actual bets:
Dan “Hendo” Henderson vs Michael “The Count” Bisping”
Hendo by unanimous decision. Hmmm, obviously, no need to state the round, decision nga eh. So the extra point will go to whether or not it was a split decision, unanimous decision, or majority decision (two judges score it for the winner, the third calls it a draw. Hardly happens).
George “Rush” St. Pierre vs. Thiago “Pitbull” Alves
GSP by TKO/KO, 3rd round. Ok, counted as TKOs: actual knockouts that are still somehow called TKOs by the ref, being ground and pounded and the ref stops it, basta, kapag sabi ng ref TKO, TKO!
Brock Lesnar vs Frank Mir
Frank Mir by submission, second round. Ok, as long as the opponent submits, as in he verbally or physically taps, it’s a submission. Whether it was due to an actuall submission move or due to strikes. So if for example, GSP and ground and pounding his way to a seemingly TKO, but then before that happens, Thiago taps due to strikes, it’s a submission victory, so I don’t get the extra points.
Whatever is announced by the ref, that’s what we follow.
Lets say the actual thing that happens is:
Dan by TKO, 3rd round. 2 points for calling Dan.
GSP by TKO, 4th round. 2 points for calling GSP, 1 point for calling TKO.
Brock Lesnar by KO, 1st round. No points. if this happens in the brock fight damn that’s gonna suck so bad.
So I’d get 5 points…
Whatcha think, good idea huh? I know right!! Coolness! Now it’s just the how much we’re gonna bet. Im actually willing to go up to 1k each, but pretty sure not everybody’s gonna agree with that. If we say P50, though, it doesn’t matter who’s gonna win cos unless you’re an ass, that money is naturally going to go to alcohol or food for the inuman, regardless of who’ll win. Unless it’s like 20 of us betting and you end up winning 1k. not gonna happen though, I don’t have enough friends haha. Cmon cmon let’s bet!
Fight post! Me like to fight! Haha. Last week I sparred muay thai with my trainer. Of course, he was pulling his punches a bit, it was just so I could get used to it. Fun fun. But damn tiring. 1st round I felt pretty awkward, didn’t do much.
2nd round was cool. Got used to it and started throwing combos. I started training myself for a countering mindset. Like he kicks to my leg, so i block and throw a leg kick of my own really quick. Fun stuff. i was catching him by doing that until he started waiting for me to do the first move haha. I like throwing superman punches. They’re actually pretty dynamic, probably why gsp likes them so much. First off, a superman punch… well, imagine superman flying in the air horizontally and then cocking his arm and throwing a straight punch, sorta like that. You sorta lift your back leg, hop forward with the front, and throw a straight. But it is so cool tactically. Firstly, it’s actually a fake-out, cos it initially looks like you’re gonna throw a kick from your back foot, then olopa sudden you punch him in the face. 2nd, you can delay or quicken the punch itself, with the timing subtle enough to be hard to read. Third, you can fake the whole punch itself and throw something else! Fun fun fun. What I was doing was throwing my first S-punches slowly, telegraphing the movement. Then I’d do it quickly and catch him off-guard. Or, I’d do the whole movement except without the punch, and since he’d cover up and I’d already have closed the distance with the hop, I’d throw a upper-upper-hook to the body. Yehey hehe. Third round I was tired, but still wanted to apply some techniques.
Haha, I just explained the intricacies of superman punching.
I was boxing with flakes…
Flakes: (after watching me on the mitts) tangina joe, ang galing ng movement mo, ang swabe.
Joe: ahihihi flakes you black men and your smooth talk! Ah hinde, si Romy (trainer) kasi, lagi niya akong pinapagalaw na parang boxer talaga.
Flakes: gago ang galing kaya. Sayang lang hindi mo kaya magbox o maglaban. Haha!
Joe: (huhuhu asshole! Don’t remind me! Huhu!) onga eh tanginang shoulders toh…
Flakes: pwede ka maging trainer! Hahahaha fat belly frat laugh!
Joe: (….dammit.) ahahaha
Haha shet, my shoulders really suck.
