In Topic: UFC 203: Because CM Punk is finally fighting

Punk might be a legit blue belt in kimono grappling for all we know, but that's a totally different experience than grappling in shorts, which again is different than grappling with gloves and with striking allowed.


In Topic: Wrestling moves/holds I'd like to see mount a comeback

Speaking of the Russian Legsweep, one of my biggest wrestling bubble burst moments was finding out it's actually extremely cool and also dangerous and banned in Judo:

 

Giant Baba used the Uki Waza, a Judo throw that looks exactly like a Russian Leg Sweep

Well, I don't remember Baba's Legsweep looking anything like Uki Waza, could just be a neologism or the meaning of the name shifting like it did in Uranage with Hase.

I will echo Jetlag's point, it's hard to give a shit about peak if I have no desire to ever watch the vast majority of matches a company produces. For comparative purposes it's much easier for me to just rank Big Mouth Loud where basically almost every match is good than deal with the com plete legacy of All Japan.

In Topic: Zach Sabre Jr vs. Munenori Sawa (WWN Supershow: Mercury Rising 04/06/18)

It's a rolling *savate* kick :)

In Topic: The 10,000 person crowd

This seems like a little redundant discussion now considering how easily New Japan will pull it off :)
