Im getting 5.09mb download and 0.377mb upload. that's roughly as good as it tends to get round these parts.

That just means it's not your speed that's slow, but theirs. If you're talking torrents then maybe you have to forward some ports.

The speed tests are what you would download under 100% completely perfect circumstances. My speedtest is WAY over what I actually download at.



The highest I have ever actually seen is around 3.8 and it normally settles to around 1.8-2.5 for the bulk of my downloads.

I kind of miss the AOL days. Something about that sound that always got me excited.

I have no interviews lined up, but am looking to contacting some wonderful WMMA fighters for MMAForum interviews. I'll see what I can do, and I have no worries about being motorboated...I have no intention of even giving Rampage a second of my time haha!
Dear LiZa,

Here's some stellar interviews. When you can change someones' perspective on a fighter you know you got em.

Probably one of my favorites.


Here's an online interview on Anderson "The Spider" Silva which I actually saved.

Anderson Silva:

“Basically, having the belt right now is just a moment in time, and you’ve got to stay hungry, stay motivated, and stay humble. I take every fight as just another fight because a lot of times, when you stop fighting, people forget about you. So I know that this is just a moment in time and I’m staying focused on keeping the belt as long as I can.”

The Spider Says – Quotables from The Pound for Pound King
In a war of words, soft-spoken middleweight champion Anderson Silva would likely be on the losing end to his August 7th challenger, the loquacious Chael Sonnen. But fights are won and lost in the Octagon, and not in the press, and that’s where Silva has reigned over the 185-pound division since late-2006.

Despite this, “The Spider” has had plenty to say over the years about his style, his upbringing, and his place in the MMA history books, and here’s a sampling from the pound for pound king.

On entering the UFC (2006)
“I have fought in Japan, England, and all over Brazil, and I’ve always wanted to fight in the US. I felt the UFC was the most well-known organization in the world and has some of the best middleweights. So I want to fight the best.”
On the secret of his striking - post-Chris Leben (2006)
“It’s training. Everyone has their own talents and their own skills, and this just comes with hard work and training.”
(Seconds Later)
“I’m one of the X-Men (Laughs).”

On the first fight with Rich Franklin (2006)
“That fight was a huge turning point in my career. It fulfilled a lifetime dream of mine and has changed my life in many ways. It has also given me a lot more responsibility having the belt.”

On the Finish of the first Franklin Fight (2007)
“I wasn’t really surprised by anything. I try to be prepared for anything, and I was able to take advantage of some of his mistakes. Like I have said before, it's like a chess game - you move the wrong piece, and it's over.”

On Pre-Fight Jitters (2007)
“No nerves. At that moment there’s nowhere to run. If you trained, you trained; if you didn’t, you’re screwed.”

A Moment in Time (2007)
“Basically, having the belt right now is just a moment in time, and you’ve got to stay hungry, stay motivated, and stay humble. I take every fight as just another fight because a lot of times, when you stop fighting, people forget about you. So I know that this is just a moment in time and I’m staying focused on keeping the belt as long as I can.”

On Bruce Lee (2007)
“He (Lee) made you believe in what he was able to do.”
On Family (2007)
“I came from very humble beginnings, but I received a lot of love and support from my family. At first they didn’t want me to become a fighter, but eventually they realized that it was something that I loved to do, and that I was actually pretty good. My upbringing has made me appreciate, and not take for granted, everything that is happening to me.”

On Spider Man (2007)
“I love comic books and I have every Spider Man comic book series since 1984. I listed him as my hero because he was the only Superhero that had bills to pay. Batman was rich, and Superman was from another planet.”

On Practical Jokes (2007)
“The best joke I pulled on someone was when I hid my cousin’s tuxedo on his wedding day and made him stress out and show up late. It’s just the way that I am. I enjoy making people laugh.”

His Biggest Influence (2007)
“Nosredna was the biggest influence in my life (Nosredna is Anderson spelled backwards). He always believed in me.”

On fighting in the UFC (2007)
“Ever since I watched Royce fight in UFC 1, it was a dream of mine to compete in the UFC.”

His Toughest Loss (2007)
“My loss to Okami was the toughest to deal with, because they really didn’t explain to me the rules of the event. I guess it was lost in translation.”

On his unorthodox striking (2007)
“That’s what makes a difference. I don’t think I’m better than anyone; I just like to prove to myself that things I imagine can be done. Expect the unexpected.”

The Ultimate Goal (2007)
“My ultimate goal is to go down in history as the most efficient and technical fighter that has ever fought.”

Don’t Mess with The Spider (2007)
“To be honest with you, I really don’t like to hurt my opponents; this just happens to be our job. But if somebody disrespects me they will pay for it. I promise.”

On Who Wins a Fight between Silva and His Clone (2008)
“That’s a very difficult question and I can’t even imagine the outcome of the fight. It’s better just to imagine it in my head since it’s not reality and I wouldn’t know how to beat myself.”

On being the best (2008)
“I don’t think I am the best. I’m far from being the best in the world. People can say what they want, but I don’t believe I am yet. I can only say that when I stop fighting, I still have a lot to go through, and there are still many great fighters out there. There is no world-best. And no one is unbeatable. We all want perfection but it’s almost impossible and I am after it at every moment. I always try to improve but it’s very difficult. I think that there is still a lot to be done, a lot to be lived and improvements to make. It’s a big responsibility and I try not to think of it.”

His Personal Highlight (2008)
“I don’t think I’ve had my highlight yet. I am still a small star in the constellation, and I think I’m still far from UFC hall of stars. But I am getting there slowly.”
On the Cote and Leites Fights (2009)
“I went up there to do my job to defend the title, and I can’t really control what the other fighter’s going to do. I have to be prepared for every situation, and it’s just unfortunate that those guys came in with that strategy.”

On Booing (2009)
“Sometimes when you’re standing outside of the Octagon it’s a lot different than when you're inside the Octagon. You know what I went in there to do – to do my job, and I’ve got my strategy. At the end of the day, yes, I’m there for the fans, but I’m the one that’s putting my body and my life in danger every time I step into the Octagon. So a lot of times, when people aren’t as educated in this sport, it’s really hard for them to understand. But I feel I went in there and did my job, and if people are booing, it’s from a lack of understanding of the sport because I went out there and executed a good game plan. It was just unfortunate that my opponents didn’t fight back.”

His Motivation (2010)
“My motivation is to be one of the best mixed martial arts fighters of all-time. Everyone is always mentioning that I’m the best pound for pound here or there, and having that type of label on me makes me very motivated. So I plan to come out here and show to my coaches and to the world everything that I’ve trained to do in the fight.”

Bought a new baitcasting reel and pole, been a while since I bought some new fishing equipment. I like both spinning and baitcast, but I only have 2 casting reels and too many spinning ones.

It's a sunny day today and tomorrow so I'll either try it out later today or tomorrow out on dead lake. It's the closest fishing lake (like 5 minute drive, all others are 20 minutes away), can't keep any of the fish there cause they are contaminated but it's the best spot in proximity for catch and release. I could do the ocean but I'm not up to fighting the rocks and logs in the water when playing with some new equipment.

Also, I cooked up some ground beef (chopped into pieces like taco meat), with some pork and beans mixed in. Takes only a few minutes to cook up and tastes awesome mixed together.
