I cant stand Hunt she exudes incompetence every time she opens her mouth.
Pretty sure amateur bouts are only 2 min rounds. Could be wrong so don't hold me to it

Well good luck trying to find it. The most I remember him saying about it was just prior to the Chael fight and the media shit storm that was going on then is probably going to make that process tedious.

I think I was reading a little while ago that something like when you have 5 or less fights the rounds are 2 minutes for amateur bouts unless an exception is granted. This is dark ages of MMA stuff I don't think they even had rounds or time limits for these fights you just got finished or gave up eventually.

I don't know for sure, but I guess back in the day, in particular in Brazil, they didn't really make a difference between pro and ammy fights. You fight, you get money for it, that's it. At least that's what I remember when our guys went on free fight tournaments at that time. "MMA" wasn't even a fixed term then here, nor was it really a pro sport.

You mean Leites. Silva ran away from Maia and even hid behind the ref at one point. Maia was walking forward swinging for the last two rounds. Terrible showing on Silvas part. I'm not sure what came over him.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

let him have the wins, because sonnen or okami will end his reign soon and the better the record the less depressed he will be when he loses the title eventually

everybody loses eventually, its still amazes me how he can be this good at 36. You know what is the best part when he does loses? Chael or okami will never ever get to the heights he has reached. Never in a million years will anyone say chael or okami are pound for pound king.

I hope he wins a few more fight. But I think we can all agree that he will loose eventually probably within three fights or less. Unless he retires still a champion. Then his legacy would be truly untouchable!

If Fedor loses to Hendo and Andy beats Okami they will have the same win/loss record. That is if you count all of those freakshow and can fights Fedor had. Guys like Nagata and Zulu should be retroactively changed to 1/10 of a win. Andy is already the GOAT and Fedor beating Hendo or Silva losing to Okami isn't changing that but I just thought it was interesting.
