That man has undeniable skills. Don't look at records, watch the fights.

I watch the fights without hipster glasses so I can indeed recognize that 90 percent of the fighters there are shit.

0-2 drop fodder in the UFC.

Very basic in every aspect, poor grappling. It reminds me a lot of M-1.


I watch OneFC, I'm not sure where you got that idea other than a failed attempt at being an elitist, but I watch it like I'm watching a regional product. It's a much worse Jungle Fight.


Kotetsu Boku is a champ there for ****'s sake.


DREAM had a lot of good fighters and even they couldn't hack it in the UFC. Hioki being the prime example. Arguably the best fighter DREAM had domestic wise outside of Aoki and he cant even decisively beat George Roop.


The only one decent fighter I see in all of Asian MMA is Kyoji Horiguchi in Shooto and possibly Doo Ho Choi in DEEP although he would surprise me less if he completely sucked in a major org.

OneFC is the most entertaining MMA we have since the peak of Strikeforce. It's impossible for a fan not to enjoy their product and anyone can see there is legit skill in that cage. I seriously doubt you did anything other then read a play by play or sherdog the results. You can read up all you want but as a fan of the sport I enjoy watching talented fighters giving it all they got. That's exactly what you get with OneFC. Straight warriors.

Boku vs Zoro was an extremely entertaining fight to watch and Boku had an amazing comeback and fought like a warrior. How anyone can diss that fight is beyond me. One of the most entertaining fights I have seen in a long time. You sir, are not a fan of MMA.
Keep reading all you can buddy, cause you sure as hell ain't watching the action.

Do you do anything but speak in generalized conjecture?

It's like talking to a brick wall. And no actually I catch the replays after the events. At least the fights I feel like watching.

I know the next event features two mediocre Filipino Wushu guys...one being a guy who cant grapple to save his life an got thrown around by a 8 year past his prime Jens Pulver. And then BJ who is past it will still probably outgrapple another Filipino can crusher.

Other than that and the complete lack of international talent sans Bibiano Fernandes and I have no idea why you pretend you are watching the gold standard of non-domestic MMA.



Also I'm not sure where entertainment value became talent.


Oh wait, it never did, and people's abilities to have exciting fights does not make them good fighters.



Let me guess, Leonard Garcia is a the next big threat to Jose Aldo huh?

Flyweight is bad enough.

Mighty Mouse' fights are worse than watching paint dry.

Just like I thought. You look at records and names and results and you don't watch fights and actual in the cage action. Does an entertaining fight become less entertaining if you don't know the name of the fighter? Does that make the performance you are watching any less impressive? It's impossible to watch an OneFC show and not be entertained. It's impossible to watch and not see talent. How is entertainment not a factor in watching a sporting event? Also just looking at records alone is not a clear indication of talent. Nothing on paper is going to effect what I see when I WATCH a fight. We are just 2 different kind of "fans". I base my opinion on what I see, you base yours off of numbers you read about. Do you. I'll do me.

Definitely should not happen, the last thing the UFC needs is to rob more talent from the division with the least competition.

It's cute how one member can mix astonishing pretentiousness with a not-to-impressive knowledge of MMA.


But carry on with your complete inability to gauge relative talent and your pro-wrestling style "mark" approach to MMA.

It would be cute if you weren't so obnoxiously pretentious about it.


I'll be watching when BJ taps or just grinds out one of those super "talented" "prospects" that OneFC has signed assuming he's not totally done at this point...and then we can pretend that BJ would be super awesome in the UFC just like every other Japanese fighter that can barely keep a job.

I totally agree with this sentiment. We need time for the 125 and 135 divisions to get some momentum. They especially need to start building stars. If we keep adding more divisions, especially controversial ones, then the casual fans will become confused, and people don't like being confused, so they will watch something else.
