For those that may not know, orcus can be a SOLID poster, as long as the topics do not include-



Fedor



Pride



BJ Penn



K1 Striking



K1 fighters



 



Being that orcus HATES BJ Penn, and orcus HATES Pride, I would LOVE to see how he gets out of this corner.



 



What say you orcus? Do you agree that BJ Penn, as shitty and overrated as you think he is, was better than the Pride lw's?



Or is that shitty organization they call Pride have better lightweights than the UFC did?



 



Pick your poison  :)


I've said it on the boards and also directly to him, I think he contributes a lot of MMA knowledge and history to the boards, and is a generally good poster.

Unless it is a topic he is fanatical about, in which case he ends up attacking, discrediting or revising history about that topic.

i'm interested in seeing evidence of "discrediting or revising history"...

also, no one seemed to have a problem with Whistleblower spewing his nuthuggery of fedor when it was obvious his only agenda was to support the fedor arguement. anyone smart has noticed he completely disappeared the second fedor lost...

I've already given a very recent example, either in this thread or another.

It was a thread about Pride vs UFC IIRC. He chimed in talking about how Shogun had just had the 2 greatest fights of his UFC career and looked fantastic against Lyoto, and then Jones dismantled him. (Thus trying to use that example to discredit Pride fighters in some round about way).

What he completely left out, didn't mention or even ackknowledge was how after those 2 great career performances by Shogun, he had to have his 3rd knee construction on the same knee, and had over a year layoff rehabbing it. That's a pretty major footnote if hes going to use that to discredit Pride fighters or somehow use it to prove UFC "superiority" don't you think? He made it seem like Shogun had 2 career best performances, and went right into a fight with Jones and lost badly.


So basically it's your perception that he's trying to discredit pride fighters? From what you said he just posted the facts, while it seems to me you're trying to make excuses. Phone Post



If by "facts" you mean omit important details, sure. I already said the outcome of the fight might not have even changed, so what "excuses" am I making exactly? All I said was it's not a fair assessment or example. You're taking a 30 year old with 3 major knee reconstructions on the same knee, a year layoff and tons more miles on his body than Jones, who was 23 at the time, and ignoring all of that and simplifying it to "derp ufc fighter won over pride fighter ufc fighter better".

But you know all of that anyway
Whether or not those details are important are a matter of opinion. Because shogun lost it was "wear n tear". If he had won it would have been "experience", which most people believed before the fight. Semantics... Phone Post

It's not semantics, it's facts. To ignore them is biased, period. I even said the out come would not change, but to pretend the facts don't exist is pure bias.
That's your opinion. You could also say bones had a huge experience disadvantage. Would that also be bias? You're just going to pick apart every Orcus post to find whatever strengthens your argument. Phone Post

You really should not even speak, ever.

No saying Jones had a huge experience disadvantage would not be biased, it would be the truth. Let me be clear here, since you are slow, I did not bring up Jones beating Shogun, nor was I the one trying to use Jones win over Shogun to somehow prove UFC > Pride. Orcus did. He made Shogun losing after having "2 best career performances" look like that somehow proved UFC > Pride, while acting shocked Shogun lost so badly and made it seem like Shogun just came fresh off his Lyoto KO in the same shape. That is not the case.

What is it called again when you are trying to prove a point, but leave out important details to make your case stronger? Oh right, biased...

you keep saying "orcus made shogun look like.." Orcus doesn't have the power to make anything look anyway he wants. YOU just choose to see things that way. you said that the surgery probably had nothing to do with the outcome of the fight,so why bring it up? was Orcus specifically using shogun/bones as a ufc/pride debate or was that just your perception?

also, why is it you are following Orcus from thread to thread? you talk of someone being emotional, but you seem to follow certain posters around like a jilted girlfriend.

It was a Pride fighter vs UFC fighter debate, I've already said that...

Also, I have already said why I respond to orcus, because I read every Fedor thread as I am a fan, and there he always is. Quite the leap, that's been debunked, that I "follow him from thread to thread".

What thread was that?

And if you're so against "omitting important details" and think facts like Shogun being 30 and having a year layoff shouldn't be ignored and have to be included to avoid bias, then why do you not only keep silent when people blather about, say, Fedor beating Coleman without mentioning that he was 40, had only one fight in the previous 3 years (a miserable lay and pray of an unranked fighter), and had only one significant win in the 7 years since losing his way out of the UFC on 3 straight, but when *I* point out those "important details", you get all pissy and join the brigade of butthurt retards complaining about my efforts to "discredit" the win?

Tell me again about bias.


why do you bring up all that negative stuff about Coleman to diminish Fedor's win, but dont even mention anything about Jones opponents that could lower the value in his wins? Like the Shogun yr off knee injury shit, or Belfort being a last minute replacment, or Sonnen not even being worth a fight with Jones, or Vera who hasnt done shit in forever, or old Rampage who is 5-5 in his last 10 fights and only beat Machida and MATT HAMILL by DECISION to even get his shot at Jones.

we can pick apart records of every great fighter if thats the goal or the only way to debate fighter vs fighter threads, and you do your part on Fedor with that like no other. how about some unbiased debate with you for once.

They are all things to consider. Fedor not getting successfully ground and pounded by a guy who has shown very little successful GnP in the preceding century does not give us much useful information about Fedor. Jones tooling guys who, despite whatever declines they may have suffered, were at the time (and in some cases ARE still even now) the top guys in his (supposedly super-deep) division is quite different, don't you think?

You're the one into searching posts, so go look. Recent thread where you were talking about Jones beating Shogun.

Why do I not mention Coleman being 40 or had 1 fight in 3 years? Because I don't need to, you are always there to remind people of that. In every Fedor thread. So what purpose would be repeating it serve? I know you will show up and say those things. Notice how I don't delete them at all? Because they deserve to be in the discussions, and are a valid point.

It's also funny how emotional you get over these things. You go from trying to respond like a grown up to throwing out words like "pissy" and butthurt retard", I think I've even seen you throw out "cunt" recently. Your obsessive compulsive nature is always good for a laugh, because there is no denying how obsessed over anything Pride or Fedor related you are. Nice debating skills!

"You're the one into searching posts, so go look."

I did a google search and didn't find it.

"Because they deserve to be in the discussions, and are a valid point."

Really? Then to what comments are you referring when you say I'm always "discrediting" everybody? Why do you join the Butthurt Brigade in whining about my Fedor "hate" if I'm posting valid points that deserve to be in the discussion? 

Can you tell me what's different about YOUR contribution of the facts around Shogun going into the Jones fight, in response to my leaving said facts out, and MY contribution of the facts around various Fedor fights, that his nuthuggers routinely yammer about while leaving said facts out?

And lol @ "I don't delete them at all", why the fuck would you delete them?

"Let me be clear here, since you are slow, I did not bring up Jones beating Shogun, nor was I the one trying to use Jones win over Shogun to somehow prove UFC > Pride. "

lol...so when someone ELSE makes a thread about Jones beating Fedor, a bunch of retards try to use Fedor's wins over Coleman and Hong Man Choi to somehow prove Fedor would beat Jones, and I point out the FACTS in those instances that greatly differentiate those fights and fighters from Jones, this is different from what you're doing? You are just trying to clear up some bias, but I'm "obsessive compulsive" and "discrediting" Fedor. Got it.

"You go from trying to respond like a grown up to throwing out words like "pissy" and butthurt retard","

I'm not writing a thesis. I use whatever language seems appropriate. Butthurt retards are best addressed as  such.

" trying to use Jones win over Shogun to somehow prove UFC > Pride. ""

lol, I figured it out. This was in the "Jones would starch Fedor" thread which was removed for some bizarre reason.

Here's the actual accurate version of what happened: In response to my "discrediting" of Fedor's win over Coleman, retards insisted it was the same as Jones' win over Shogun -- a win over a non-prime version of a great fighter, since Shogun was past prime and had his knee surgeries etc. To which I pointed out that it was nothing alike; because while Coleman had literally just one relevant win in 7 years, and was coming off a shit performance over an unranked fighter, Shogun was the #1 ranked fighter in the world when Jones fought him, coming off his best UFC performances and arguably best career performances.

Somehow your obsessed, stupid little mind turned that into "UFC > Pride". Which is weird because what I was *actually* doing was what you're in this thread saying we *should* do -- point out all the missing facts that were left out by the biased party.

lol

Nice debating skills.

So there are dozens of delusional UGers who think you discredit Fedor in every single Fedor thread who are not correct then (including a random poster who started another thread on this very topic today)?

"Hong Man Choi to somehow prove Fedor would beat Jones"

Who said this? It's just another ignorant shot at Fedor. How about 7-0 VS those that ever held the UFC HW strap. 2-0 VS PRIMe Nog.

You muddy the waters, and ramble on in an attempt to win at any costs. Show me the quotes from that thread. You were using it to show superiority.

You show up in every thread that even mentions Fedor, and throw little insults mixed with facts, in a transparent attempt to discredit him.

Much like the moron omega 2013 who will in one post call Fedor fans brain dead morons for making excuses for his losses (such as him fighting in a cage, or being out of him Prime), and just chalk it up to Fedor being overrated and then just today actually argue that the reason Chuck lost to Rampage in Pride was because he was fighting in a ring and not use to it, and he wasn't "in his prime". Despite Chuck having won fights in a ring before, and after losing to Rampage going on one of the best LHW runs of all time. Really? That is just LOL and 100% hypocrisy and stupidity.

So it's OK for you guys to do that, but not a Fedor fan?

It;s the same MO with you two. Show up, do whatever you can to discredit him, and move on. It's old, stale and even new members are joining old ones in seeing through it.

You who will argue for 100 pages about the size of conan the barbarian's nipples just to win an argument...

"Show me the quotes from that thread. "

I can't. You or some other mod deleted it for some reason. Since you're the one making the claim that I was trying to use it to show UFC > Pride superiority, maybe you should be the one showing quotes?

"So it's OK for you guys to do that, but not a Fedor fan?"

I'm all for everyone bringing up whatever facts they want. I have nothing to say about Chuck in a ring because I think the ring was a complete non-issue. Rampage is obviously a bad matchup for him, the venue is irrelevant.

"ramble on in an attempt to win at any costs."

I post FACTS -- exactly like the ones you posted in this thread about Shogun -- and rather than argue the points, a bunch of idiots (with you backing them up) spew back nonsense, illogic, and accusations of "hating". Again, how am I -- the one doing what you say is a good thing, pointing out the unmentioned facts -- the problem? Why is your ideal discussion forum just a big circle jerk?

How about Arona vs Tito or Chuck?

Or Miletich vs Sakurai back in their primes? Hughes beat Sakurai, Sakurai beat Trigg, Newton beat Miletich, Pele beat both Hughes and Miletich, Newton beat Pele, Hughes beat Newton, Remember that top WWs out there picture that the UFC provided back in the day under the pre-Zuffa UFC, i think it was the show that Newton beat Miletich.

For those that may not know, orcus can be a SOLID poster, as long as the topics do not include-

Fedor

Pride

BJ Penn

K1 Striking

K1 fighters

 

Being that orcus HATES BJ Penn, and orcus HATES Pride, I would LOVE to see how he gets out of this corner.

 

What say you orcus? Do you agree that BJ Penn, as shitty and overrated as you think he is, was better than the Pride lw's?

Or is that shitty organization they call Pride have better lightweights than the UFC did?

 

Pick your poison  :)

of course a win over Shogun the ufc LHW champ is better than a win over older coleman. the point is, you bring up anything and everything you can about Fedor's comp to diminish it. all of them! go back read your posts. Fedor didnt have but 1-2 good wins according to you. Didnt finish Nog,Cop,Semmy, Heath was cut stoppage, Arlovski was out of his prime, Sylvia is a LOL win to you, beating coleman, Randleman, rogers, etc was equal to beating school girls (you may as well just say it that way) but NOTHING, NOTHING mentioned about Jones's opponents like I said that could possibly take away from one of his wins. SELECTIVE CREDIT to serve your purpose!

the armbar thing, as 1st I guess Hong Man is a nobody Cody Meckenzie could walk through (and you know because you saw all of his 22 mma fights? or he hardly had any to know what he could do? his size alone makes it possibly for him to beat even a great like GSP or Hendo). but again, just a can. people used the armar thing, because odds are Fedor would be there, Jones has long limbs, Fedor can be quick on the bottom, we just saw Belfort nearly catch him with one, and Fedor is faster and Stronger than Belfort, so some think thats how he'll win. But OH NO! Could NEVER Happen (orcus knows all) and 1st thing we have to do is rip on the 2 guys Fedor did catch with it. Then dismiss any other ways
Fedor could win, Praise Jones and his wins, and then say how no one has any debate or argument to put up and you feel like you win.

We've said it all, NOTHING ANYONE can or will say will make you think fedor would win, Its not possible for you to think Fedor could win vs anyone.

quick, prime Fedor vs Prime Cruz, who wins?

I have Prime Chuck over Prime Wand by brutal KO.

The reason I joined the forum was I couldn't stand the hate prime Chuck got compared to Wand.

Prime Wand was awesome, but from 05 on not as dominant as prime Chuck. The first Wand fight I saw was as it happened was vs Nak. Nak was wearing a gi and out striking Wand, even dropping Wand to a knee. He started losing when his gi was coming off, so he removed it during fight and in explicitly left himself defenseless, got clipped and tide turned.

Chuck would have obliterated a guy in a gi with limited striking.

Arona beat Prime Wand twice and I had to finally sign up here to debate the second decision.

Chuck would have beaten the "I want to f Chuck" wand, that fight not happening is one of my biggest regrets of missed fights. Phone Post 3.0

It is revisionist history to say Shogun was shot when he fought Jones.

Before the fight, people laughed at Jon saying "champ 2011" and said he has no chance. Immediately after, they said something was wrong, he was off, he is shot, etc.

Something was off, getting blasted and your doors blown off in a complete shutout / blowout will tend to make you look off.

Having said that, Shogun is top 3 all time at LHW. I'm not discrediting him, in fact I am saying Jones beating a superb fighter like Shogun in the manner he did is mind bottling. Phone Post 3.0

For those that may not know, orcus can be a SOLID poster, as long as the topics do not include-

Fedor

Pride

BJ Penn

K1 Striking

K1 fighters

 

Being that orcus HATES BJ Penn, and orcus HATES Pride, I would LOVE to see how he gets out of this corner.

 

What say you orcus? Do you agree that BJ Penn, as shitty and overrated as you think he is, was better than the Pride lw's?

Or is that shitty organization they call Pride have better lightweights than the UFC did?

 

Pick your poison  :)

This is easily my favorite UG dueling duo.

Arch enemies.

Perhaps frienemies. Phone Post 3.0

Let me tell you, at first, I had very little withdrawl from the UG when I decided to stop posting for a bit.

 

But the contributing factors to why I just can't leave this place 100%-

Lots of traffic resulting in mma discussion

pro's and famous people post here, as well as many super awesome posters

I come to sites like this first and foremost to discuss mma, and to gain perspective.

With the exception of a few topics, orcus is one of the people I could've missed the most because I love seeing him explain his points, and many times he can make a valid argument.

He's full of shit regarding Fedor, doesn't give BJ the credit he deserves, for some reason is biased against Pride, however he is the first person I saw on here to state how K1 striking doesn't have to worry about take downs, and that sat with me, and made me change my opinion on something I thought it was established on.

I honestly enjoy debating with people on here, and after our initial dispute or personal insults, we've had a pretty good back and forth of debates. I tend to agree with him though on everything but those certain topics.

 

Also, my 4yr old once heard me talking to my g/f about "Super Calo" and thought I said "super cow" and is always talking about "did you see super cow"?  When I heard "super cow", I got a little sentimental and logged in and posted.

I've said it on the boards and also directly to him, I think he contributes a lot of MMA knowledge and history to the boards, and is a generally good poster.

Unless it is a topic he is fanatical about, in which case he ends up attacking, discrediting or revising history about that topic.

i'm interested in seeing evidence of "discrediting or revising history"...

also, no one seemed to have a problem with Whistleblower spewing his nuthuggery of fedor when it was obvious his only agenda was to support the fedor arguement. anyone smart has noticed he completely disappeared the second fedor lost...

I've already given a very recent example, either in this thread or another.

It was a thread about Pride vs UFC IIRC. He chimed in talking about how Shogun had just had the 2 greatest fights of his UFC career and looked fantastic against Lyoto, and then Jones dismantled him. (Thus trying to use that example to discredit Pride fighters in some round about way).

What he completely left out, didn't mention or even ackknowledge was how after those 2 great career performances by Shogun, he had to have his 3rd knee construction on the same knee, and had over a year layoff rehabbing it. That's a pretty major footnote if hes going to use that to discredit Pride fighters or somehow use it to prove UFC "superiority" don't you think? He made it seem like Shogun had 2 career best performances, and went right into a fight with Jones and lost badly.


So basically it's your perception that he's trying to discredit pride fighters? From what you said he just posted the facts, while it seems to me you're trying to make excuses. Phone Post



If by "facts" you mean omit important details, sure. I already said the outcome of the fight might not have even changed, so what "excuses" am I making exactly? All I said was it's not a fair assessment or example. You're taking a 30 year old with 3 major knee reconstructions on the same knee, a year layoff and tons more miles on his body than Jones, who was 23 at the time, and ignoring all of that and simplifying it to "derp ufc fighter won over pride fighter ufc fighter better".

But you know all of that anyway
Whether or not those details are important are a matter of opinion. Because shogun lost it was "wear n tear". If he had won it would have been "experience", which most people believed before the fight. Semantics... Phone Post

It's not semantics, it's facts. To ignore them is biased, period. I even said the out come would not change, but to pretend the facts don't exist is pure bias.
What did you think would happen on fight night? I'm sure you changed your mind only after Shogun lost. Phone Post 3.0

"Fedor didnt have but 1-2 good wins according to you."

He had plenty of good wins. Enough to keep him at #1 for a long long time. That doesn't mean most of those wins aren't guys that would be beaten by many/most top heavyweights, or that they should convince you Fedor would of course beat [insert name of any fighter here].

D, what happened to your arrows? I thought you were like plus 200 or 300. Now negative??

And is that why you mentioned coming here less?

Shogun put on an incredible fight wit Dan.

Saying Shogun when he fought Jones was shot is completely at odds with what he did in a war with Hendo.

In fact, saying Shogun was shot is a huge disservice to Dan. Are you saying Dan can barely beat and almost get stopped by a well shot Shogun? Phone Post 3.0

"Its not possible for you to think Fedor could win vs anyone."

Funny you say that, because I picked Fedor to win every fight starting with the first fight with Nog. The first fight I picked him to lose was against Bigfoot.

UG Ironing happened.

 

You know how I got super upset with orcus because he's been discrediting Fedor every time he can for years and I researched his post and made a thread where I took his old post and contradict them with his current post?

 

Well I got someone super upsest with me(except I dont know who and how), and they took the time to create a vote down hack and have used it on me the past few weeks. An admin contacted me asking if I know why I would be getting voted down so much in so little time, and we found this:

Wasa-B - How about Arona vs Tito or Chuck?

Or Miletich vs Sakurai back in their primes? Hughes beat Sakurai, Sakurai beat Trigg, Newton beat Miletich, Pele beat both Hughes and Miletich, Newton beat Pele, Hughes beat Newton, Remember that top WWs out there picture that the UFC provided back in the day under the pre-Zuffa UFC, i think it was the show that Newton beat Miletich.

Werent Faber and Kid close to fighting once in Shooto?
I actually talked to Faber about ths Kid fight. He said he wanted to make it happen, but not enough fans knew about Kid to get it going... Phone Post

Was this in SHooto, K1 or WEC?
