***MMAF All Access Interview*** --Week 8-- oldfan

[OFFICIAL] MMAF ALL ACCESS THREAD



What's up MMAF? I am here with another MMAF All Access interview. This week, we have an awesome member here with us. This is one of the best interviews yet!
-Week 8-
(oldfan interviewed by HitOrGetHit)

What made you become a fan of MMA?

Royce Gracie at ufc 1

Who is your favorite fighter or fighters in MMA and why?

Randy for too many reasons to list. Before him it was Frank Shamrock and Don Frye.

Is there any fighter that you dislike?

Not really. or at least never permanently. All of the ones I have disliked, like Tank, Tito, Brock, even james Toney have said or done something to make me like them at some point.

What about outside of MMA? (Boxer, K-1, etc.)

I barely keep up with K-1 and gave up on boxing long ago.

Which style of Martial Arts do you like to see the most?

I like it all. I have loved watching the evolution of this sport. I remember when no one threw kicks in the ufc because the only ones who really knew how were scared to death of being taken down.

Watching strikers learn to sprawl(was like the invention of the wheel), wrestlers fight off their backs and BJJ guys learn to throw head kicks has been an interesting journey.

Who do you think is the best wrestler in mma?

The best pure wrestler? no idea. The wrestler to have the most success adapting his style of wrestling to an effective style of fighting has to be Randy. With him moving on I’d say that title is wide open. GSP ? Chael? Cain?

What about BJJ practioner in MMA?

I don’t know. I thought it was BJ Penn for a long time but his best days may be behind him.

What about the best striker in MMA?

A. Silva

Do you think Silva would beat Roy Jones Jr in a boxing match?

They're such different games, I'd give A.S. a good chance now but, only because Roy has slowed down so much. His style kinda sucks if you're not the fastest man alive.

Who do you see winning the Silva/Belfort fight?

I have nothing against Silva but, I get a little tired of people putting a fighter up on a pedestal and making them out to be unbeatable. Silva is great but, he’s not unbeatable and I think the phenom has the tools to prove it. Does he have the will? ...We’ll see.

What was the first MMA fight that you saw? If you can remember.

Gordeau vs tuli I really am an old fan.

How about a favorite Kun Fu Movie?

Enter The Dragon. ...what? they made another one?

If you could have one dream fight to see in MMA, who would be in it? Where would it be? What ref would be in the cage?

That’s a tough one. There have been so many. I’d have to say the one I was the most emotionally invested in and celebrated the most at the time was Pulver vs Penn 1. with Randy vs Silvia a close second.

The one I have enjoyed going back and rewatching the most times is probably W. silva vs Guy Mezger. (and Tyson vs Holyfield 1)

What is your favorite woman’s MMA fight?

Another tough one. I’ve been impressed with the skill level in strikeforce.

Speaking of women, if you had to choose between Gina Carano and Arianny Celeste, who would it be?

Arianny. I want nothing to do with women who can beat me up.(so many have tried)

I think I heard that Arianny takes Muay Thai classes though!

I like my chances in that one.

What is your favorite MMA organization?

UFC of course. Although I would love to see a resurgence in Japan. There really is nothing today like the glory days of pride.

Do you like the idea of the WEC merging with the UFC?

I haven't decided yet. I like the smaller divisions but I'm pretty much maxed out on PPV's.

How about your favorite weight class to watch?

It varies. I’ve been very interested in the MW division lately and in seeing someone expose Anderson Silva as an actual human.

What is more impressive, a first round (T)KO, a first round submission, or a 5 round dominating decision?

Depends on if it’s my guy who did it.

Ok Oldfan, what is your name?

Scott

How did you stumble across this wonderful place that if MMAForum?

By accident when I set up an mma tab on my igoogle home page.

What is your favorite part about this forum?

Trolls.

What do you like about the trolls?

They make me laugh. When I first started spending too much time on this site there wasn't much funny in my real life. I will always feel gratitude and affection for the clever souls who made me laugh then.

What do you do for a living?

Many things and very little.

I am a stay at home dad (coolest job in the world) for two beautiful little girls.

I operate a couple of (sinking) businesses from right here at corporate head quarters in the back of my house.

And I supplement it all with a part time gig and owning interest in a successful commercial fishing boat. (the second coolest job in the world with the most beautiful commute.)

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Fishing more.

Do you like salt water or fresh water more?

Again, very different games. There's much more work and reward in salt water fishing. When I look at the Atlantic ocean I see the worlds biggest, most beautiful ATM machine waiting for me to make a withdrawal but, there are few things in this world as relaxing and enjoyable as taking a bucket of live shiners to a quiet creek or pond. Catch a fish, catch a buzz, forget about the world.

If you had just 24 hours to live, how would you occupy your time?

With Mrs. fan and I know I’d go out with a smile on my face.

If you could have one car no matter what the cost, what would it be?

A boat.

Well that is all of the time we have this week MMAF! Be sure to thank oldfan for taking the time to do this with us. I am sure he will accept +reps from everyone! Keep an eye on your inbox for MMAF All Access as you could be next!
