    Damn this card is stacked and there are a lot of good fights. I cant wait to see the Hari vs Overeem k-1 fight. Damn that is gonna be good. Badr is a beast. Hopefully he has learned not to kick a man when he is down lol.

    I can't wait to see Hansen/ JZ and Aoki/Alvarez. I think all of those guys are high ranking fighters.

    What sucks is that this is going to be Online PPV. Does anyone know when it starts US time?

    crop pussied out of fighting alistair overeem. what a puss. hong man choi is going to be a joke. however, alvarez vs aoki makes up for it.

  10. MW74

    December 29, 2008 at 2:56 pm

    Tim! we're practically neighboors. next event at the pond/honda center we'll carpool. hah!…and hong man choi…last we saw him, wasn't lesnar flattening the guy's head into a ring somewhere? same guy right? any chance of sapp dropping the super supplements long enough to fight in ufc?…he'd make that whole scene a lot more interesting.

  11. Morey

    It was Fedor that destroyed Choi by armbar. Lesnar beat up some other guy in his debut. I don't really think Bob Sapp is going to be a great fighter and he probably wouldn't make weight. But he is a superstar in Japan so he'll just stay there and make good paydays. I think Kimbo will probably follow in that same route and fight in Japan.

    pretty good card

  13. roy

    December 30, 2008 at 3:25 am

    this card is great, and no lesnar has not fought choi, and don't be surprized if choi beats cro cop. big news is lebanner is out and melvin manoof steps up on one day notice to fight a guy that out weighs him by almost 100 lbs.

    the online PPV deal fell through so we won't be about to see this show until January 6 at the earliest.

  15. Tim

    December 30, 2008 at 4:23 am

    Lesnar was going to face choi than he backed out due to injury and he ended up facing Min Soo Kim i believe.

    thanks Tim, thanks morey & thanks roy…really though? cro cop has fallen that far so as a loss to choi isn't a surprise?!…man… :(…how the mighty have fallen

  17. roy

    December 30, 2008 at 9:08 am

    he has fallen but its not just that choi is a good k-1 fighter he has wins over mighty mo and semmy shcilt so beating cro cop is not that far out of line.

  18. Tim

    December 30, 2008 at 9:18 am

    Well some fighters are now stuck in between falling, hanging around or on the verge of retiring. you see a new age of fighters are among us and wether or not the old legend fighters can hang around will be tested in the upcoming years…so far not many have passed..Liddell is falling, Couture, Wandy, Cro Crop, Nog all seem to be stuck in the middle.

  19. MW74

    December 30, 2008 at 9:20 am

    Ohhhh.Thanx, reliable source as usual, roy… and with the how close..I meant the seats..if I'm gonna live vicariously through someone I want it to be someone with great access to awesome seats hahahhaha!.;)

  20. MW74

    December 30, 2008 at 9:21 am

    .I'll either be at clinicals or watching one of my litter..

  21. roy

    December 30, 2008 at 10:01 am

    clinicals? what are you doing? i got front row—on the second level not to bad i heard its better to be there than first floor in the back.

  22. MW74

    December 30, 2008 at 10:16 am

    I'd agree…looking at the back of everyone's head or a close yet bird's eye view…I'll take those 2nd rows…clinicals for a nursing program I'm in…after acl & miniscus surg's…not as attractive to the CHP as before…so I'm gonna be a "Murse" on top of doing the sports massage stuff I do on the side…oh, and working special ed autism for the school dist….and 3 kids & a wife makes me a tad busy…school's out til the 5th though! Yea for me!….like I always say , though I'd still trade my checks for those of my least favorite fighters…getting paid to bloody people…man, did I choose badly on carreer day!

  23. roy

    December 30, 2008 at 10:29 am

    its a great job lots of different things you can go into in nursing, you will always have a job and make good money, i do mri's i have been in the medical field for 14yrs radiologic technologist.

  24. MW74

    December 30, 2008 at 11:09 am

    where do you work out of? my cuz does x-ray tech out in hemet area…the wife has been a nurse for years…we met when we were both working psych(probably where I'll work as a nurse) out in the OC …but the CHP thing was just about to happen when the acl / miniscus thing happened…right before they called me for the psych & physical…oh well…gotta roll with the punches..I still have the massage therapy thing going…but I only have time for a few of my reg athletes I work on…anyway…bloodying people up instead of fixing 'em up pays better and seems like a lot more fun

  25. roy

    December 31, 2008 at 4:33 am

    i am from oc but i work out in the palm springs area, my parents are in hemet now and thought about the police force took a few classes but not as far as you got.it would be a fun job but you will make more money being a nurse and this way you can bloody them up and than fix them up right after.

  26. MW74

    December 31, 2008 at 5:20 am

    Hahahahaha! Thanx for the encouragement roy. But, Damn! I thought the commute from Circle city to Newport was bad…OC to Palm Springs?!…1/2 your check must go for gas $$$…that's a hell of a drive, you're a better man than I am…I don't think I'd do it, even for good $$$!

  27. Tim

    December 31, 2008 at 5:41 am

    Shit i thought i had it bad…Riverside to Walnut/Diamond Bar/Brea Area. My friend works for Riverside PD in Palm Springs but lives in Moreno Valley…he drives to the springs and back daily, he always complains about it at on our Military weekends. You can make more being a CHP or Cop anywhere my friend pulled in just under 100K in 2007 with major overtime and holiday pay…my wife's cousin works for CHP and he makes around 80K a year…i know nurses make around 60 depending upon the line of work your in. I have Medical Assistant and phlebotomy cert and massage therapy but i dont do either. Congrats on being a tech for 14 yrs damn Roy and i do agree i would trade in my paycheck anyday.

  28. MW74

    December 31, 2008 at 6:06 am

    …and while we're opening up old wounds, I'll poke deeper in to the subject..and tell you that the retirement rate for CHP is set by calculating 75% of your HIGHEST GROSSING YEAR….ot/holiday included….I'm gonna go drink now…JK!…massage helps, but not steady enough to pay the bills I have. Mostly I just stick to the sports modalities I specialize in for a few clients and the bjj guys I know.(did the spa thing…didn't like it)but prisons and psych pay nurses very well…just no cool cars or guns like CHP…by the way, Tim…I'd rather live in palm springs and work in mo val than vice versa :( props to your friend and roy def' for 14 yrs

  29. roy

    December 31, 2008 at 6:16 am

    i a from oc i don't live there now, i work and live near palm springs.yeah cops make good money and have a great retirement but trust me nurses can make a hell of alot more and if you want overtime there is tons of it.i know people shooting x-rays making 100k with ot and nurse's can pull in sick money and ot. my dad was a cop for 30 yrs and your right he gets 75-80% of his check like he was still working plus medical.

  30. MW74

    December 31, 2008 at 6:26 am

    Killer,man! Your old man's a hero,brother…anyone who puts on a vest, gets in a vehicle and says"I'll take out the bad guys(Tim, you too) gets my utmost respect…and I'm sure I'll do great…I'm an overtime whore!….Glad to hear your not making that commute…I was beginning to doubt you sanity….so it's still between me and Tim for commute, then…lunchtime…Seacrest-OUT! ;)
